How do I install software?

A SIS fileSoftware for Symbian OS phones is normally supplied using a Symbian installation file (with a .sis extension). This is a single file that contains the components needed to get a piece of software installed and ready to run. A SIS file can be run on a Symbian phone (e.g. from the Inbox or via a file manager. It can also be run via the PC connectivity solution that was supplied on the CD with the handset.

For help on this subject, see our Series 60 FAQ

How do I connect to my PC?

Belkin Bluetooth adapterInformation on how to connect a Symbian phone to a PC is one of our most common questions. There can be a number of options (such as Bluetooth, USB or infrared), depending on what your handset supports, and what's available for your PC.
As it's one of our top topics, we've set up a dedicated page - See our Series 60 PC FAQ

Alternative connectivity software

Rather than the software that came as standard with the phone, there's a rather useful third-party application called Oxygen II- This application supports Contacts, Calendar, Messaging and file management.
For details of how this works, take a look at our Oxygen page

Hotmail and AOL access?

Hotmail and AOL use proprietary email systems, as opposed to the more common POP email systems - this makes it tricky to access mail on a Series 60 device. For email on the move, consider using a standard POP3 provider such as BT Yahoo (see setup details) that offers free email accounts that can be configured on a Series 60 phone.

If you really want to use Hotmail or AOL, see our Series 60 FAQ on this subject.

Can I use the 6260 in the States? Yes. It's a tri-band phone operating on EGSM900/1800 (Europe, Africa, Asia Pacific), and GSM1900 (USA, Canada, South America). There should be no problem using this phone with network operators in these countries. Roaming restrictions from your network operator may prevent use of some services in other countries.
