6600 v 6630: Speed?

Hi.

Current and long-time 6600 user and have ordered a 6630. Can any ex-6600 users comment on the speed-difference between the two? My only complaint with my 6600 is with the slowness

Thanks

Will

6630 is much faster than 6600,or 7610/6670 or any other Nokia Series 60 device faster CPU,more memory,and so on...

i was a 6600 user for over a yr & thought it was an excellent phone but it is painfully slow compared to my 6630! even when using my 6630 on a 2G network to compare the two it beats my 6600 hands down and will be on a 2nd web page before my 6600 has connected sometimes!!

u can speed up yr 6600 by ammending yr log duration to 1 day, u shouldnt be disappointed by the speed of yr 6630 esp on when browsing using 3G!

Everything in the 6630 is faster.
Its menus open faster, looking in device manager the list is populated much faster.

Thanks everyone - nice to hear it's so much faster. I'm still confused about exactly how much faster 3G is compared to GPRS, and I also don't understand whether my current GPRS package (on Orange ) is compatible with their 3G offering. In other words, is 3G the natural successor to GPRS or is it completely different? Do your 3G settings mirror your GPRS settings?

Sorry for all the questions

you should search and learn about technologies first and than ask,but today is a nice day and here it is
3G is three times faster than GPRS.i will try to do it as simple as possible.there are these generations of networks:1G-NMT,2G-GSM,2.5G-GPRS,2.75G-EDGE,3G-W-CDMA/UMTS/ and some other standards3,5G-HSDPA mayb WIMAX will be the 4G
GPRS is an data upgrade of the GSM network,situation with EDGE is the same,3G is a completely new standard if we compare it with GSM,its working on different frequences and dont need another data upgrade for surfing the web and wap.But of course there is an upgrade for existing UMTS networks,its called HSDPA,but it only helps to download with higher speed.But in GSM without GPRS/EDGE you can only download with CSD,or HSCSD which is very very slow and expensive because you pay for the time conneted and not for the Kb of dowloaded items

Thanks very much for that. Have spoken to Orange who confirm that I'd still be using my existing Orange World package, so...should be fine. Can anyone give me some real-world 3G speeds? I tend to get (approx) 3kbps on GPRS

in real you will be happy with for upload 60 kb/s and download 350kb/s,but it can be very different from country to country and operator to operator... one thing is the maximum theoretical speed /it can be 2MB/s is the case of UMTS and the other thing is the real speed suported by the operators... for example in Polland the average speed is about 51KB/s
but if you are changing GPRS connection to UMTS you will feel the difference

Well about the speed.... downloading stuff with 3G is fast. Downloaded a 400kb file in no time. The processor speed of the 6630 is 220Mhz , as far as I know faster than any phone excisting today and its ram will be good too. All pages open very quickly! The 6630 can do a lot more than your 6600 and it can do it much quicker.

Sounds really brilliant. In the UK (correct me if I'm wrong) 3G is still in development. In fact it sounds as though it's in beta and there are major latency problems...but I'll reserve judgement until I get my grubby paws on the 6630. From what you've all told me, the 6630 sounds an awesome phone. One final question, looking through the manual (PDF online) I can't any mention of it having a vibrate/buzzing function...(so you can have it vibrate instead of ringing, when in meetings etc). Any idea?
