  • Download the application directly from the developers at
  • Install the application.
    You then need to install a companion application on the phone itself. (details on how to connect on our Series 60 Connection page)
  • Once installed, it's a case of starting the Oxygen application from the phone's menu, and turning on the communication using the "Start exchange" option. Then, from the PC end, press F5 from the main Oxygen application. This connects the phone and PC together.

  • Almost immediately, the PC application reports the phone's software version number and memory usage information


  • Problem with importing messages. Performing a "read all" seemed to show that messages were being received, but they didn't make it to the PC application, and the connectivity between phone and PC was lost. Importing on a folder-by-folder basis, however, seemed to work nicely. This could be because our test 6600 has a rather messy structure, and a mix of multiple POP email accounts.
