Like almost all mobile phones, my Nokia 6160 has a wonderful way of remembering phone numbers. Over the course of a year some of my most important numbers have ended up in the phone. The problem is that there's no way to get the personal phone book off the Nokia, despite an infrared port at one end that looks like it should be able to "beam" the numbers to a Palm or other infrared device. Unless, of course, I copy them out by hand.
I must not be the only one annoyed by the trouble I have to go through to get stored phone numbers off my cell phone. After all, nearly one of three Americans already has a mobile phone, according to "Cell Phone Nation" in the current newsstand issue of TIME Digital magazine.
