jetty, 31 Aug 2008hi, i own an e51. i've had it for a week now, its quite good, but everytime i capture an image... moreAs a workaround, just change the profile to "Silent" and take the snaps...there wont be any sound of clicking the shots :-))
Original_Jamaican, 07 Sep 2008WINURA my friend are you able to view pages flash contents with your '200' ?
Like the deskt... moreHello mate! well in your previous post about the small things that's missing from S60 when compared to S40,
Lets start from the missed calls scenario. If i happen to have 1 or more than 1 missed call on my E51, on the active standby it shows that you have a certain number of missed calls right? and when you select the missed calls bar from the active standby menu you will get the list of numbers and in front of them, within a bracket the number of times you have missed calls from each number. is this what you're talking about or is it some other issue?
For the clock there's no second counter but you can set your time with the same accuracy if you have a clock to set your time with a second counter. (if you know what i mean).
As for the sim contacts problem you can either copy the numbers from your sim to the phone or simply go to contacts > options > Sim contacts > sim directory. my personal opinion is that its very clever. because with a phone like this which has practically unlimited contact storage capacity having some of you numbers saved in the sim card is not necessary. don't you think so?
and finally about the browser, i never had a problem viewing flash content through my browser. not with the 100 nor the 200. and the youtube application works like a charm in my phone. (smile)
WINURA my friend are you able to view pages flash contents with your '200' ?
Like the desktop version of Youtube for example ?
The funny thing is that when I had firmware '100' I was able to view sites with flash content easily and now that I have '200' I can't.
Yet some people say that when they had '100' they COULDN'T view flash content and after they upgraded to '200' they are able to.
What a mysterious firmware.
Firmwares are only suppose to enhance and upgrade certain areas of a product, not downgrade some of the essential areas.
I hope Nokia sorts out this mixup with their next release.
Nokia E 51 without camera so that we can use in the companies where cameras are restricted
Another thing I left out is that s40 shows all contacts in one list. The contacts on SIM are indicated by a SIM card diagram which makes a seamless integration of contacts. All in one place and you know where each contact is stored.
WINURA or anybody else, with all the gripes I have mentioned, if there's something I'm missing please to inform me but I simply don't see any other way around the inconveniences I have discovered.
Still love the E51 non-stop (smile).
I have been giving the E51 a full test drive.
I'm coming from a Nokia 6300 which is a series 40 phone, Nokia's own proprietary OS.
Everybody knows that Symbian is more power than s40 but there are little basic stuff that I rather in s40...6300 in particular.
Hands down, the E51 is a much more powerful and more capable phone than 6300 due to the technologies built in and Symbian but to me the basics matters by add less frustration in everyday use.
First of all, one of the niceties of the 6300 is being able to see up to the last 5 dialled and received calls..even missed calls too, which will let you know that someone tried to get you up to 5 times.
Another thing is seeing the seconds along with the clock which may not be a big deal for some but it provides better accuracy when setting the time.
With s40, when you edit a number it places it on the standby screen for you to easily add a * or other standard symbols like # for network purposes, like sending someone calling credit etc......With s60 when you select edit you have to painfully accept the little box with and bring up the symbol screen and select * or # which means scrolling back and forth across the symbol menu whereas it's an instant thing with s40 seeing that there are dedicated buttons for these symbols when using a number on standby screen.
Just a few gripes but it was time for me to move on to a new phone and a new OS.
Despite the differences, did I regret the switch ? NO! as the advantages outweighs the disadvantages.
Do you need voip/wlan to be able to call through the internet?
Can't you do voip with any phone that has wifi (for instance new N79)?

(majority is not happy with the camera) but i'm a happy user. but my advice to you is to go for the Nokia E71. that will be the ultimate upgrade for your E61. but the screen is only 2.4 inches. but all n all that is the best upgrade for you. you might want to check that out before you consider buying the Nokia E51.
Great phone. I'm using it right now to post this very comment. Works like a charm.

Do I have to shell out extra money again to upgrade the firmware or is it something i can do on my own? or better question could you give some details on upgrading or can u tell me where on net i can find on my own?
I did some upgrading on my W810i. no problems.
