I am very disappointed with this phone. Because many times my called party complained me that they were unable to here my voice clearly & it seemed like that I am talking from long distance. Some of my familiar persons facing same problem.
Some of my colleagues planning to purchase it. But I suggested them not to buy this phone at this time.
Can anyone please suggest me how can I get rid of this problem?
I have posted this before, but I want to post again. For the benefit of others…
I have been a Nokia user for the past 10+ years, ever since M1 started some 10+ years ago. My very 1st hp was the "banana" phone, think it was Nokia 3810 or something like that. And ever since, I have had up to 20 or more models of Nokia hp already. 6510, 8250, 6280, 6288 (just to name a few) and many many more models I lost count and forgot the model number. So far, I have been very satisfied with your product.
But in recent one year or so, my purchases of Nokia phones have been disappointing.
1) 6210 Navigator: No good, the phone went for software upgrade once (at least)
2) E71: Some problem with the ear-piece parts. Replacement part not available (wait for one/two months; gotta wait. Complained and M1 (not Nokia) replaced one for me (Nokia no longer has 7days replacement policy).
3) E75: Software problem again, went software upgrade again.
4) E51 (Used): Ok, but unable to read memory card.
5) WORST OF ALL: E52, the phone just died on me. Unable to power on. Phone is still at Nokia Care Centre after one whole week!!!
The above models are bought in the time span of recent one year.
I was able to back up all my data in previous incidents (1-4), but in the most recent purchase of E52 (No power), it did not give me any symptoms of breakdown and I lost all my data!! Calendars entry, notes, messages etc…
Yes, this complaint is from just one customer, but I will definitely not recommend Nokia to my friends and relatives anymore. At the same time, I am sorry to say that Nokia has just lost a loyal faithful 10yo customer. And I will definitely not consider Nokia anymore in my next hp purchase. Perhaps, Sony E or HTC or even Samsung might be better choice.
From an utterly disappointing EX-Nokia faithful customer...
Just have the phone for 1 month plus but keep on giving me trouble! the phone auto off without any reason. sometime it hang for a long time until i have to take take out the battery and fix it back. it really make my life miserable! last week the phone auto off again and this time it can be on back after i have take out the battery and fix it. immediately i send the phone to nokia and it's already been a week till now my phone are still with them! i don't how can they release this model if they know that it will cause a lot of problem to the customer. Nokia please wake up and improve your devices and don't dissapoint your fans. i am really frustrated by this tragedy. last time when i'm using SE model i never have this problem and the device work perfectly. the reason why i change to nokia is because of the technology are better that SE in terms of OS and also performance. Hope that nokia will come out will latest software for E52.

Hi...I have purchased E52 just 5 days back. It took me no time to decide on this model of Nokia.....really exciting features!!
But just after purchase I am facing serious trouble with it. 1) The phone goes autometically off without any notice, it happens 3 to 4 times a day. 2) During talking it also gets off suddenly and that time no key is working. I just have to open the battery and fix again to start the phone agian. Its really frustation for me....any suggestion from any one???
I am in Bangladesh and the phone was purchased from a NOKIA center, Made in Korea.
I'm not sure if its connected but I noticed that when the phone is connected on GSM network mode some of it flaws arise.. for instance, I used to keep it on GSM mode to conserve battery, after some time of usage it started to give a "Low battery" warning whenever I make/recieve a call, including the use of data package to connect to the web/GPS etc.
I reinstalled the software version and placed it on 3G mode only (not dual mode) and so far (3 days) its been the perfect phone, just like what I hoped the device will be.
Perhaps, as I said previously, its irrelevant but whoever experiencing battery problems should try it and confirm just in case. I hope nokia will address this issue as a priority.
Hey guys, just came to kno that this handset can play divx and avi movies.. all you need to do is download this free player (DivXPlayer_S60_3rd.sisx) from
Lemme kno how is your experience
E52 use two microphone system for noise cancellation. For effective use this function, must keep the speaking mircophone as close to mouth as possible. This is written in the user manual. Don't complain the microphone department.
Having struggle for one day, I can sync gmail contacts and calendar to this phone. Both gmail and hotmail push to this phone to.
The sync application suports syncML. Gmail mail only support contacts syncml. Setup a sync profile for contacts.
Goosync's free a/c supports sync google calendar, set up a free goosync a/c, and setup a goosync profile.
For push mail, e52 support multi push email a/c. I setup my working gmail, and private hotmail a/c. Both push to my e52 promptly. Faster than desktop computer's email alert.
Gmail has better sync functionality. For email sending from e52, it keeps a copy in sent item folder. It also sync read item and deleted item.
e52 has better push email than exchange. Exchange can only sync one email box. E52 can sync multiple email boxes.
Since e52 use a nokia middle server, I guess nokia will charge a fee in futer. Maybe this is the drawback.
This phone work very well with gmail.
I Would like to know the price for this good looing, attractive and well featured Nokia E52. I am in Namibia and would like someone to tell me how much he she boujght it for, so I can convert that into Namibian Dollars. I really want it. Nokia is best.

A full featured and very affordable phone.
yup. it's plastic not like e51. But then again it's much harder to scratch.

I was using my E52 for about 2 months. I bought it just after it was reliesed worldwide (bought it in Lithuania (Europe)). My handset is made in Finland. So I have this phone for a long time (comparing to others).
So here is my opinion (after 2 months):
I have read much about software problems, but I have never had any faults. My device works perfectly and there were no freeze (except one time after very long call I was browsing phone menu very quickly and there were some programs still runing, so it was my mistake). No resets, no freezes (by it self), no faults. Handset works very good.
I have only one remark... Accidentaly i droped my device on solid ground and "metalic" edging, that is all arround handset, was damaged just a little, but it is enough to see, that it is not made of metal, but of plastic. Only covered with metalic paint. So I answer to some your questions about it (with my disappointment that I was so not carreful) :(( well at least this damage is so little that it is not very important.
In conclusion - after two months of high usage Nokia E52-1 works perfectly as in first day. So DO NOT take seriously opinions, saying that this phone crashes, freezes or resets a lot. Just buy E52 phone from trustworthy seller and you will have no problems with it.
P.S. I have question about GPS and ovi maps. I need tu turn off voice in ovi maps, because its trial version has expired. Do you know, how to do that? Because I can't find how...
Happy Nokia E52 user,
I'm changing mobile on every 3-4 months across different brands. my experience with it is not well.
E52-1 is a very good phone on paper, but in performance it is the one of the weekest phone.
Receptions is very bad, call quality also very bad that other party can't hear well.
Speed of the phone is good, so for 1time it crashed.
We r all discussing pros&cons of this phone,yesterday I made videocall but sound out of loudspeaker very low,too bad for such nice phone,any of u people out there noticed that&picture was not crystal clear dont know why Any suggestions?
