These features of Nokia 6600 are indeed amazing and astounding at the time of its release (launched June 2003) that's why it became one of the bestselling cellphones in the world but with the digital explosion of the different models and units of cellphones nowadays like Apple iPhone, Samsung Omnia, Sony Erickson C900, and Nokia's E series, old cell phones like the S60 series are now just taken for granted.
What's the use of old and outdated cellphones? Can we upgrade them to compete with the new features of postmodern gadgets and devices? This intructable will answer this latter question in the affirmative. And the former question will be answered in greater detail in the following pages. It was two years ago (2006) that this idea came to my mind but I have not been able to write it due to my hectic schedule. But now I will give you a glimpse of my old multi-functional cellphone. You can see the systematic list in Step 36: Appendix A - Quick Index (at the end of this appendix, I explain concisely how to uninstall or remove mobile application from your cellphone if you don't like it).
In the midst of economic and financial difficulties, you must save your energy, money and, of course, our environment. Instead of buying different gadgets and devices like microcomputer (portable computer such as laptop or notebook computer, subnotebook, tablet PC, Pda - personal digital assistant, wizbook, etc), iPhone, camcorder, iPOD, MP3 player, PSPs, Gameboy, DVD player, scientific calculator, reference books (dictionaries, encyclopedias, etc.), digital camera, flash light, organizer, etc., etc. which took so much mass, space, time, money and energy, what you need is just your old dusty cellphone (Nokia 6600) from your cabinet. Clean it up and simply follow the step-by-step instructions below and you will see the great difference it could make to your life and lifestyle. Don't forget to read the Step 37: Appendix B - "The M.O.N.E.Y. Principle: How to Achieve Financial Success in the Midst of Global Economic Meltdown."
Please be careful in the installation of application programs. By reading this instructable you agree that you are responsible for your own actions. I will not be held accountable for any loss or damage to you or to your cellphone and electronic devices.
No hardware change is needed in this conversion. Only the memory card will be replaced. All conversions will be done through installation of different applications that will enhance your old cellphone. You can also apply the same procedures to other models of cellphone but you must use compatible mobile applications in the form of upgraded versions.
I will let you to enter into the world of my Nokia 6600. Here are just some of the application programs that can be found in my old cellphone. I have installed most of these applications two years ago. These applications can be found only in my 512 MB MMC and I still have hundreds of applications in my other two MMCs (64 MB and 1 GB) which will not be shown and displayed in this instructable due to lack of time on my part. In fact, I will not be able to discuss all the applications which you can see in the following pages. It would take more than five hundred pages to explain all these applications.
