One thing which I find strange is that my E51 is RM-244 and my manual states that the SAR level is 1.47.
Nokia's SAR page states the RM-144 as 1.40 and RM-426 as 1.47.
Strange. I would like to think there was a misprint in the manual as the SAR is already high enough at 1.40.

Milanche, 10 Jun 2009Hello, I've bought this phone, without microsd card, so now I'm looking for buying one. Which ... moreTo MILANCHE:
Transcend and A-Data are very good.
Try to avoid Kingston; even though they make very good jump drives for PCs, for some reason their memory cards don't seem to be that reliable.
One of the biggest concern among GSMArena opinionists is the maximum capacity Micro-SD card the E51 supports. Some people complain that it won't work with 8GB or if it does work it slows down the phone a lot.
Well Milanche I have a Transcend 8GB Class 6 and I have NO PROBLEMS whatsoever and the phone is as fast as lightening just the same. If you are wondering about the Class 6 part, it's merely the measurement of read/write speed. Normally the options are Class 4 and Class 6. Class 6 is a bit harder to get. Class 4 means at least 4MB per min. and Class 6 = 6MB per min.
Personally, I would go for the Transcend because my E51 starts up fast and seems to run faster overall with the Transcend 8GB Class 6 compared to my previous A-Data 4GB Class 6.
As far as I'm concerned the E51 will support 16GB even though I haven't tried it yet. Reason being recently I went to Nokia Europe E51's homepage and under accessories, Nokia showed a 16GB memory card...something they didn't list under the E51 accessories previously (I just checked again and now I see 16GB and 8GB side to side). So if the price is right, max out things and go for a 16GB. If that is far too much memory for you then go for a 4GB or 8GB.
If you are going to go for a 8GB or 16GB I would suggest you upgrade your E51's operating system to firmware revision 300.34.56 (to check your version press *#0000# in stand-by mode). You can upgrade your firmware using Nokia PC Suite. The reason I suggested upgrading to the lastest is because the first version of the firmware was said to be created before 8GB and 16GB were put on the market so upgrading to the latest will support these high capacity cards better. They may not work OR may not work properly if you have the initial release version of the firmware which was 100.34.20. The second firmware release was 200.34.36, third was 220.34.37 and the latest, released January 2009, is 300.34.56.
Click on the link below to see for yourself that Nokia officially supports these high capacity memory cards. Don't believe rumours.
Hope you find my advice useful.
Please let me know which and what Class Micro-SD card you plan to get.
Please can anyone tell me where to find the stuff after downloading and do I have to pay and download quick office before using it??
Id appreciate a response

When using my E51 as a modem for email, I sometimes cannot download email with attachments to my computer which uses Vista and Outlook 2007. Telstra, Trend Micro and Microsoft Support cannot explain why it downloads small emails without attachments and only sometimes can and usually cannot download emails with attahments, such as wmv and pps.
Hello, I've bought this phone, without microsd card, so now I'm looking for buying one. Which one would you recommend,beside Nokia. Thanks

Hello.Whit last firmware updates camera record a clip with 30fps and this mobile is complete to enter in the hall of fame!Perfect options,strong and beatifull desing,great performance Area 51:)
Problems with charging/discharging caused by memory card slot. If card inserted will cause fast discharge in a few hours even if not using the phone. If you want to charge the phone will never end charging. You will not get replacement of phone, just sent to service.
hello I have only issue with the keypad...I am using it for last 4 months but I could not type messages easlity, actually I was habtiual of 9300I with proper keybord. Other wise I dont have any issue.
