miro_gt, 21 Nov 2009well I updated to the 400.34.011 from 100.34.20 and I lost everything, lol.
on the good sid... moreHi miro_gt @
Godd to hear your upgrade went well with no bug issues.
Anyway concerning your question on what should be installed after an upgrade well firstly there are 3 new app that you get once you upgrade.
1-Dot Theme white.
3-Share Online (I think personal files etc, I have not used it yet)
Now go to office>quickoffice>Updates & Upgrades and click on, you will go online and download the latest Quick Office for free, its a great improvment which I highly recommend.
Now concerning new applications these are the applications I had to personaly load individualy.
cCam (No camera sound)
Light (Lets your E51 become a torch at night)
Pad Sticker (great for files)
Now go to map loader and upgrade your maps on your E51.
Thats about it.
Any problems just let me know I will see what I can do to help.
But its good to know your upgrade went well, I upgraded also from 100.34.20.
I dont think I would upgrade firmware again its too risky but next time I may upgrade the phone.
God bless you
Hearing issues , very low volume to hear calls properly! Overall a great phone!
upgraded to firmware 400...working flawlessly. from internet wifi to phonecalls. very happy.
well I updated to the 400.34.011 from 100.34.20 and I lost everything, lol.
on the good side of the things, I did backup before that of everything but the memory card, so I restored first 5 things from the comp back to the phone(user data, contacts, messages, calendar, ...) but I left the "settings" option not to restore, as somebody said it would mess up the new OS, which make sense though.
so I'm having my contacts again .. or I was gonna be really pissed, but back to the point.
It looks like no apps were restored, duhh. So now I have to go and install them again. Point is, I dont remember what was on the phone before in its stock form. Could anybody help ?
I know it was having google maps, Visto mobile or something like that for email, then something else, then I had my custom apps - the france 24 news, Qik video, and some internet browser
what apps do you all install after the update ?
i have problem with wlan connection. says wlan connection not found. can anyone help me?

Jimmy19823, 19 Nov 2009I bought My Nokia E51 fone while i was in India january 09 and used it for about 8 months,and ... moreYou have 4 options.
...and all this can be done without you needing to see the display clearly...
THE FIRST THREE METHODS ARE TO BE DONE IN STANDBY MODE. THE PART WHICH SHOWS THE TIME AND ACTIVE STANDBY.
1. Do a regular reset by keying in *#7780#. This will do a soft reset. The phone will return to it's original factory settings but you won't lose anything.
2. Do a soft format by keying in *#7370#. The phone will return to it's original factory settings but you WILL lose everything CONTACTS, NOTES, CALENDER ENTRIES, VOIP SETTINGS etc.
3. Do a hard format by turning off the phone, press and hold green dial key + number 3 on keypad + asterik key (*) and finally the power button. You need to hold down ALL 4 keys simultaneously (POWER, DIAL KEY, 3 and *). While the phone powers on WITH YOU HOLDING DOWN ALL KEYS keep holding the keys until you are prompted to enter your country.
4. Connect your E51 to your PC and using Nokia PC Suite click on the UPGRADE SOFTWARE icon. This will guide you on upgrading your phone's operating system known as firmware.
Please get back to me and let me know the outcome. Good luck.

Can anyone tell me whether E51 has video calling facility with 3G connectivity ???
Anyone can tell me how to perform a firmware upgrade? My current firmware is 200.04.36...and should I do it or not? Thanks...
I have noticed so many Nokia users complain about the performance of their phone, especially after an upgrade!
Well I hope I can help some of you out there?
I have owned Nokia phones for the last 10yrs from the 5110i to the present E51 and to tell you the truth I have never really had any major problems except a screen had to be replaced on my old 6510 after I had dropped it.
But I am hearing many users complaining on phone freezing (especially when answering calls) internet connection settings lost or Wifi not be usable again.
But after some research I have found one of the main reasons for these problems, it could be because you have restored all of your old phone settings after an upgrade and that has conflicted with your phone software.
I found that most users who have problem with phone freezing is due to some applications left on or may not be properly compatiable with the new (400.34.011 firmware) upgrade.
I just did the latest 400 upgrade and I tested my phone in every way you can from internet, Wifi to answering calls from all around and I am yet to find a problem with my phone.
I gaurante you that mnost of your phone problems are caused by your old software settings being restored to your phone, try cleaning out your phone and only restore your contacts only!
Nokia is not a perfect phone but at the same time its not the worst phone either.
JUST REMEMBER THAT 10% OF NOKIA PHONES ARE TEST PHONES WHICH ARE PHONES THAT WERE USED FOR TESTING IN ORDER TO FIND FAULTS. IF YOU BOUGHT YOUR PHONE FROM ANOTHER PLACE OTHER THAN A GENIUNE NOKIA OUTLET THEN CHANCES ARE YOUR MOBILE COULD BE A TEST PHONE AND YOU SHOULD OF GOT IT FOR LESS THAN HALF THE PRICE (IF THEY WERE HONEST)
