I honestly have to say that Nokia E51 is the very best Nokia I ever used. It's just wonderful and if you have the know how, you can backup your information in so many ways making it virtually to lose data and not be able to easily recover it.
The E51 is technology at it's very best.

Sorry for the triple post, but the Wefi application works perfectly fine..I recommend those having difficulties with their E51 while connecting to the Wlan..Use the Wefi application..Just google it..
Sorry for double post. There is an application named Wefi. I am going to test it. What it does: It searches for hotspots and connect to them automatically. I will post my reviews if the application works!

First of all let me say this...some people experience different glitches with the same firmware.
Ever since I upgraded to 400.34.011, sometimes when there's an incoming call and I press the ANSWER KEY, the phone freezes without the call being answered...the ringing stops as if the call has been answered BUT you see, for example 'MARY JANE calling' stuck on the screen and the keys become non-function and you either have to do one of two things...take out the battery OR wait until about 30 secs. and then the phone auto-restarts.
Having said all this, you may want to think twice about upgrading to 400.34.011.
As I said previously, you may upgrade to 400.34.011 and not experience what I experience OR you may experience the very same problems and even more. It's a 50-50 chance. The choice is yours.
Let me know the route you decide to take.

I also been able to test it to the extreme. The battery drains in around 5 hours on extreme use. Wifi, online radio, calls..name it..every possible application on..Now, I am on moderate use mode.(1 to 2 hours of wifi, no online radio, a few sms, no calls).After 24hours, I have 6 out of 7 battery bars..I will post the results after the battery drains completely..And yeah, I have to clean it everyday(fingerprints).

hi, i had this e51 for morethan a year but it was unfortunate that i had an accident w/ my unit, i'm thinkin of buying the same one until i saw nokia's e52 and e66. i love e51 so much but i wanted to get an upgraded version w/ it's 3g video calling in front of the phone. but i'm really confused now. there are bad reviews about e66, i was leaning to get it base on the specs posted in this site but after reading thereviews, it makes me think twice again. help!!! is it really better to buy the e66 or stay w/ the smart and reliable e51?
i dont know how to putt an theme on the cell... could someone help me plz !
For the first time yesterday I suffered data corruption on my memory card while shooting a video with my E51.
I was shooting a video and as soon as I stopped it and went to check it out, to my surprise the GALLERY was blank. I checked the memory capacity and I saw where memory was being used up...1.86GB was being used out of my 8GB Transcend Class 6 SDHC memory card.
Nothing I tried would get the data to show on the card, ejecting and reinserting the card while the phone was on, turning off the phone and turning it back on, starting up the phone without the memory card then installing the memory card after the phone boot up...nothing worked.
I decided to connect the phone to my WinXP PC using MASS STORAGE MODE and I still didn't see the data on the card. I used the ERROR CHECKER and it found the data and treated it as lost clusters so it converted the data as recovered files in the format FILE000.CHK, FILE001.CHK etc. In all it found a total of 5,897 files and each file represents data that was on the memory card whether it be a photo, video, song, ringtone, text message, game, application, recording...you name it. I used my memory card for everything including text messages which in this case will be impossible to get back because all the sms would have been stored in a special file and that file would have a special extension which I honestly don't know, furthermore that special file which stores the sms would have been stored in one of those system folders like PRIVATE and that I didn't even take time to study so unless somebody can help out here all my text messages are gone down the drain.
Some of the files are fairly easy to figure out, like one of the FILE001.CHK files report a data size of 72MB which I knew right off the hat to be a video I shot of a friend so all I needed to do was change the .CHK to .MP4 and the file is converted back to the video and working perfectly once again.
The problem is the whole procedure is hectic, just think about going through nearly 6,000 files just to get back stuff that you want to keep memories of.
My advice to you all is to backup your data on your PC from time to time as data corruption can happen anytime on a memory card.
In my case I don't know if it was the phone's fault or the memory card fault but something triggered off the corruption and I may never find out the reason why.
