I found this very disappointing as it directly contradicts the information on their website in th FAQ section.

See:
http://www.nokia.co.uk/nokia/0,,74744,00.html

Not really sure where I go from here and as yet (six days later) I haven't had a response from Nokia to my reply to this email. Understandably the supplier won't take back a opened and fitted piece of kit as it's not their fault and Nokia are not saying the equipment is faulty.

I think anyone considering this solution (CARK-91, CA-55, CR-27, 6680) should go in with their eyes open to the fact that it (for me) provides hands free and radio muting functionality but not charging despite what Nokia say on their web site.

Yes,thanks that answers it nicely. Very unsatisfactory though isn't it?. I think I know where I go from here - back to the people who sold it to me to get a refund. The CA-55/CR-27 combination is clearly not fit for purpose and shouldn't be on the market. In all such cases,consumer law is very clear. Your contract is with whoever you buy from, not with their supplier (Nokia in this case). Having said that, I'm sure my supplier won't agree and I'll have a fight on my hands.

i dont think there is a great need to be aggressive. nokia doesnt market the ca-55 in combination with any other device, it just says here is a cable that will offer you limited functionaltiy with your existing cark-91 or cark-109 car kit.

personally, i wouldnt have bothered buying it, i would have just bought a ck-7w or something and keep up with the times.

Re: Cark 91 Converter CA-55 -does it work fully?

Point taken. I don't intend to aggressive, just polite but firm is my intention. This has clearly been mis-sold by my supplier they advertise the CA-55 as: "allows you to update the Nokia Advanced Car Kit CARK-91 to work with compatible Pop-Port equipped phones". They then go on to refer you to a compatibility chart that has the 6680 on it and the appropriate cradle (CR-27). Nowhere does it mention any limitations on functionality. Added to that, when I asked them about the charging problem, they didn't mention any compatibility issues but said the phone must be faulty. I agree with you, knowing what I know now, I wouldn't have spent £80 on something that only does half the job. The only reason I did was I was seduced by the advertising.

No this does not work as I have just purchased the ca55 along with a CR-43 it clearly states that it charges the phone as well its cost me alot in tel phone calls and the product so far!By the way this for a 6280 and I have had very little real info as to why this is not as advertised?

the problem is in the hfu-2 unit as i have two of these kits both charging the phone althought the second kit i bought at first would not charge. the numbers on the white label of the kits i have are BL06133361 on one box and the other is LK45133361, you could try contacting the man who finaly sorted mine out as he sells these boxes on ebay.
