Welcome to Nokia 6600 PC Suite
Now that you have successfully installed Nokia 6600 PC Suite onto your PC you can begin to explore the synchronisation, image transfer and other features which Nokia 6600 PC Suite brings to your Nokia 6600 and PC.
Getting started with Nokia 6600 PC Suite
For more detailed information refer to the Nokia 6600 PC Suite Installation guide and the Nokia 6600 PC Suite on-line helps available with the software.
Connecting your Nokia 6600 to a PC for the first time
Before using PC Suite, you must enable the correct communications ports by double-clicking the Connection icon on the Windows taskbar. Select the ports you want PC Suite to use for connections. Note that you need to connect your phone to the PC before you can start Nokia 6600 PC Suite for the first time.
• Ports that are enabled to be used with PC Suite cannot be used by other applications. Therefore, select only the ports that you know you want to use with PC Suite.
• When you connect your phone to the PC for the first time, PC Suite prompts you to enter a name to identify the phone and distinguish it from other phones you might connect to the PC. PC Suite creates an identically named folder for the phone on the PC to store the folders associated with it.
• A COM port is an exit and entry point of information to and from the PC. Bluetooth COM ports do not refer to any physical CPM ports on you PC, as they are virtual ports.
You can connect your phone to a PC via an infrared or Bluetooth connection. As long as you are using the ports that you specified when using PC Suite for the first time, PC Suite automatically detects your phone when it is connected to your PC.
To connect your phone to a PC via infrared
1. Check that infrared is set up and enabled on the PC. You can do this by looking for Infrared or Wireless link in the Windows Control Panel (available only when an infrared device has been installed).
2. Either double-click the Connection icon on the taskbar, or go to the PC Suite Control Panel, and select Connection Properties. Make sure that the correct COM port is selected for the infrared connection. If no port is selected, select the COM port with infrared as the connection type.
3. Activate the infrared connection of your phone. On your phone, go to Menu, open the Connectivity folder, and select Infrared.
4. Make sure that the infrared port of the phone faces the infrared port on the PC and that they are in range of each other.
To connect your phone to a PC via Bluetooth
For more information on the Bluetooth software, refer to the user documentation of the Bluetooth software. For more information on the Bluetooth application in your Nokia 6600, refer to the Nokia 6600 User's Guide.
1. Make sure that your PC has a compatible Bluetooth card and the required software installed, or built-in support for Bluetooth.
2. Activate Bluetooth on your phone. On your phone, go to Connectivity and select Bluetooth. Select Bluetooth On, and give your phone a Bluetooth name. Make sure that you phone is in discoverable mode (to do this, change My phone's visibility to Shown to All in the Bluetooth menu).
3. Start PC Suite for Nokia 6600.
4. Either double-click the Connection icon on the task bar, or go to the PC Suite Control Panel and select Connection Properties. Make sure that the correct COM port is selected for the Bluetooth connection. If no port is selected, select the COM port with Bluetooth as the connection type. If you are unsure which port to select, you can select all Bluetooth COM ports. In such a case, the ports cannot be used by other PC applications.
5. Establish a serial port connection between your Nokia 6600 and your PC. For information on how to do this, refer to the user documentation of the Bluetooth software.
6. If you are connecting your Nokia 6600 to your PC using Bluetooth for the first time, you need to pair the devices. Create you own passcode (1-16 characters long, numeric) and enter the same passcode on both the phone and the PC when requested. This passcode is used only once and you do not need to memorise it.
7. Authorise the connection between your Nokia 6600 and your PC. Select Yes when a connection request appears on the phone's display. You can set your PC as authorised, which means that connections between your phone and your PC are made without a separate authorisation. To do this go to the Paired devices view on your phone, scroll to the device (your PC in this case) and select Options. Select Set as authorised.
• The Bluetooth connection does not close automatically. You can either close it from the Bluetooth software on your PC, or from the Bluetooth application on your phone. Close the Bluetooth connection when you stop using PC Suite for Nokia 6600 in online mode.

With PC Suite for Nokia 6600 you can:
• Share information between your PC and phone.
• Make back-up copies of the phone files to protect data in case of loss or damage.
• Synchronise your calendar, contacts, and tasks with Microsoft and Lotus applications.
• Copy and move image files between your PC and phone.
• Copy contacts and calendar information from another Nokia mobile phone, Nokia 9110 Communicator, or Palm device to your Nokia 6600
• Configure phone settings.
• Install software on your phone.
• File Transfer: Copying a file to the root of the memory card may fail when running PC Suite on Windows 98, Windows ME or Windows XP. Using subdirectories on the MMC is preferable.
• Interoperability: Uninstallation of the PC Suites for Nokia mobile phones other than Nokia 3600, Nokia 3620, Nokia 3650, Nokia 3660, Nokia 7650 and Nokia N-Gage may not be complete after installing PC Suite for Nokia 6600. Reinstallation may be needed.
• Restore: User made empty folders,wallet settings and clock alarm setting are not restored.
• Restore: The restore operation replaces all data in the Messaging application with the data in the backup. This means that all changes made to the Messaging application settings as well as messages received after the last backup will be removed.
• Windows 2000: To be able to use infrared to transfer files between your Nokia 6600 and the PC, go to Windows Control Panel and select Wireless Link. In the Wireless Link File Transfer tab check the Allow others to send files to your computer using infrared communications.
• Windows 98 and Windows ME: PC Suite Backup may not save files and folders with Unicode names, that is, names with special characters such as á, ö and å.
• Windows 98 First Edition: PC Suite requires that Microsoft's extended DCOM support "DCOM98 for Windows 98, version 1.3" is installed. This is available from Microsoft's web site.
• If you get one of the following error messages: "Ectaskscheduler", "Mrouterruntime", or "Broadcastproxy" when booting your PC, you probably do not have a TCP/IP protocol installed. In Windows 2000 you can check this from the Windows Control Panel -> Network and Dial-Up Connections -> Local Area Connections. Either Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is not selected, or is not installed. To solve the problem either select the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), or install it. To install the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), choose Install -> Protocol -> Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
In Windows 98 and Windows ME you can check this from the Windows Control Panel -> Network. If the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is not on the list, choose Add -> Protocol -> Microsoft -> TCP/IP. Also Dial-up Networking service installs TCP/IP- protocol, so if your configuration prefers Dial-up Networking you can istall it from the Windows Control Panel.
• Connection Properties dialog box and Change device dialog box: The cable connection mentioned in these dialog boxes cannot be used to connect your Nokia 6600 to your PC.
• Backing up files with very long filenames: For example e-mail attachments with long filenames and image files stored in deeply nested folders or in folders with long names can create problems during a backup. This is indicated by an error message on the phone screen and backup can stop. To avoid this problem delete e-mails with such attachments, or reduce the depth of folders you store your images in.
• TDK USB Adaptor (Software version 184.108.40.206)
Making a connection between your Nokia 6600 and PC:
1. Identify your PC's Bluetooth Serial Port by opening My Bluetooth Places -> Bluetooth -> Advanced Configuration -> Local Services. Notice the COM port number on the line "Bluetooth Serial Port".
2. Execute "Find Bluetooth devices" by following instructions on the screen in the My Bluetooth Places panel.
3. Double-click your device on the list and select "Connect to Bluetooth Serial Port".
4. Authenticate the devices and accept the connection.
5. Open the PC Suite Connection Properties dialog by double-clicking the Connection icon on the Windows task bar and select the COM port you identified in step 1.
6. In some configurations the 'client' port needs to be checked after the 'host' in Connection Properties. 'Client' port setting can be found from My Bluetooth Places -> Bluetooth -> Advanced Configuration -> Client Applications. Notice the number on the line "Bluetooth Serial Port".
• Establishing a Bluetooth connection with TDK USB Adaptor: the software displays the following error message "The Bluetooth serial port connection failed: The remote device closed the connection". This error message can be ignored, as the connection between the phone and the PC is established despite of it.
• Establishing a Bluetooth connection with TDK USB Adaptor: the software can display the following message "The Bluetooth serial port COM0 is now configured to connect the device <device name>. The Application that will use this connection must be configured to use COM0" which can be ignored.
• 3Com Bluetooth Wireless PC Card (3CRWB6096) and Wireless Bluetooth USB Adapter (3CREB96).
Making a connection between your Nokia 6600 and a PC:
1. Set the security level of your PC software to "low", see the 3Com software help file for details on how to do this.
2. Identify the "Virtual COM ports" created by the 3Com software, both the "client" and the "host" ports are needed. To do this, open the Bluetooth Connection Manager application and choose Tools, COM Ports. On the COM Ports dialog box, the host port is listed first, then the client ports are listed below. Select the one labelled "Serial Port".
3. Enable the "Host" port in the PC Suite Connection Properties dialog. Ignore any messages claiming the port is in use.
4. Enable the "Client" port in the PC Suite Connection Properties dialog. Ignore any messages claiming the port is in use.
5. Choose your Nokia 6600 when prompted to make a connection by the 3Com software.
• 3Com software asks for a connection every time you start you PC: When you have finished working with your Nokia 6600, return to the PC Suite Connection Properties dialog box and disable the selected Bluetooth ports.
• Inability to choose COM ports (COM3 or COM4) with Windows 98: The 3Com software does not choose alternative port numbers even if the ports are already in use in your PC by other hardware. A solution to this problem is to reconfigure other hardware attached to your PC to free up the clashing ports. This may include altering modem and infrared hardware settings.
