I'm only getting two days battery life on standby. Any solutions??? I see some of you mention formatting the battery - how do I do this????
Nokia has a battery recall that affects the BL-5C battery used on the E50. The recall applies to batteries manufactured between Dec 2005 and Nov 2006 and you can check if you are affected by going to this Nokia link:
Here we go again kids. After all those notorious fires related to the batteries used by the world's largest handset manufacturer, Nokia has issued a product advisory for the BL-5C, Nokia-branded battery. That's right, Nokia branded, not just those third-party knockoffs everyone had been pointing the finger at previously. A staggering 46 million batteries in fact, all manufactured by Matsushita (aka, Panasonic) between December 2005 and November 2006, are said to be at risk of "dislodge." According to the release, "in very rare cases" the Nokia-branded BL-5C batteries could short circuit leading to an explosive burn. Nokia goes on to say that the danger only exists while charging the battery and of the 100 or so reported incidents, "no serious injuries or property damage have been reported." Oh really? So the loss of a leg no longer constitutes serious injury? The BL-5C is one of just 14 different batteries used in Nokia products so be sure to check the list below to see if your phone is one of the 52 Nokia handsets affected. If you're unlucky (or lucky, depending upon your viewpoint) enough to be affected, then Nokia will provide a replacement battery free of charge.
Update: We just received clarification from Nokia that the "overheating" referred to in their advisory will not result in an explosion or even a fire. At worst, batteries will "overheat, expand, and pop out of the phone (due to the expansion of the battery)" unlike the exploding Sony battery debacle. Feel better? Didn't think so.
I just bought an new e50 last week, it is a nice phone but the characters displayed are very very SMALL, I have a big problem to read even with my glasses. Do somebody khow how to increase the font. It is really appreciate. Thanks
How can I disable the shutter sound on this phone camera? can anyone tell me? Is it possible?
Nice phone. I am here in the US and I am having problems with caller id. If I am on automatic network it does not show. If I do manual and select a network it works but I get very limited coverage. Also If I am on automatic network I get 3 bars and it sometimes wotn answer a call. I even tried calling it with another phone and after 3 rings voicemail kicked it while I can plainly see it has 3 bars. Help!!! I upgraded it to the new firmware and nothing. If you have answers pls post it. thank you in advance
Really very heartbeating mobile is E50.Specially for business person and professions.I am enjoying of having of this.
I want to buy a new phone and it comes down to the e50 and the 3250,could anyone please help me pick cause the specs for this phone beat the 3250 in every area except music playback and camera quality and I'm a person that rarely takes pictures but i do listen to music every once in a while.I also heard that this is a dual sim phone,is it true?Some guy is selling a second hand one for only $165.Shoul
to the person asking how to lock the keypad press the left top button and press *.this is one of the best phones nokia has ever made.it's a smartphone at an affordable price.i upgrade to this from the nokia 3650 and i can't complain.it has so much features,but the loading,it is like a computer.but if u are looking for a smartphone at a low price with plenty and more features than the rest this is the phone.since i got mine i couldn't put it down.and the memory.man jus buy the phone.
could any one tell me how many sms storage in this phone.
This phone is not worth buying.
The speed of the interface is very slow. It takes ages to get you to your schedule screen, or to reply to an SMS, and specially to go into the clock to change your timezone at landing (7 seconds since key pressed). You may think I'm exaggerating, but in this device, you have to wait for everything.
The worst is the speakerphone freeze. It will make you embarrased if you're in a meeting, or if you're in a quiet environment. There's nothing you can do other than removing the battery (this of course drops the call). If it's an important confidential call, you have to choose between having the conversation in speakerphone in front of everyone, or dropping it.
The one good thing is looks, and battery life.
Go look at another phone. Don't waste your money in this one. Nokias are not what they used to be.
