Video calling is featured, too, with a secondary camera perched above the display, while anyone looking to shoot some home video will welcome its better than average VGA recording capability at 30 frames per second, plus TV Out facility.
Naturally, memory card expansion is supported; the phone has a slot in the side for MicroSD cards to supplement the 120MB of onboard user memory, and can take MicroSDHC cards with up to 8GB of storage capacity.

The 6220 classic’s design will hardly get the fashionista set drooling – it’s a straightforward, conventional looking candybar. However, from other models such as the 6300, Nokia knows that unfussy sells.
When you consider the features packed inside this phone, though, the outer casing is a disappointment. It has a cheap, plasticky feel, with the glossy front panel buttonry a bit creaky under your fingers. Softkeys aren’t as responsive to the touch as we’d like, either, although the smooth numberpad is fine, if not the slickest, for texting.
A large central navigation D-pad takes care of most movement around the menus. Nokia’s S60 ‘squiggle’ main menu key flanks it on a slightly raised key nestled between the call button and one of the softkeys. These are close together, but in our tests, we had few mis-pressing problems. Some larger-thumbed users may find it more awkward, however.
@Captain DaFt + others - Snooze Time
Okay, I know you were joking - but seriously, the point of snooze time is to snooze a bit more.
Some people wake up differently - some can jump straight out of bed, others, like myself, need 20mins of gently being re-introduced to the world ! Plus its not just the the wake up alarm - you can set reminders for things, and sometimes you'll be in the middle of something else, then for the buzzer to come back 5mins later is annoying, so you cancel the whole reminder and then forget about it - whereas setting somewhere up to 20, 30 mins later would be helpful.
And yes - after text, calling and phone book, alarm is the most important feature to me on a phone; anything else is an added bonus!
@Stuart - thanks for the info - does make me happy !
Just got one as well...
...and the only thing that annoys me is that the screen seems prone to scratching. I've had it a week and there are already a couple of irritating hairline screapes which it's picked up from sharing my pocket with some fluff.
Other than that, I'm with Stuart (above) - my last few phones have been SE and I've been more than delighted with them, but this little beauty is nice.
Nokia 6220 - THE business mobile
it's available with free delivery on the nokia UK website! http://shop.nokia.co.uk
shame about the wifi
why not include wifi?
I like my N73, just want wifi support. Do I want to know where I am going - not fussed!
Re: Snooze time
Just got one of these, I like it.
Snooze time defaults to 15min, and can be anything between 1 min and 60 min. Hopefully that'll keep you happy.
Got it from mobiles.co.uk on O2, seems to be Nokia firmware and unlocked, from what I can tell.
(As a previous SE fan,it frustrates me that SE can't have a phone as good as this. Several come close but are missing the odd feature)
