I have now owned The Nokia e52 for one week after upgrading from the e51, I have brought the phone sim free and paid £250 Pounds for it, It has some major plus points over the e51, The likes of MSN messenger installed a better camera and built in GPS, Connection manager is very good. BUT here comes the bad news, It switches it self off more than 5 times a day crashes all the time even when writing a text or making a call, Its so bad im now considering getting he e51 again and waiting for nokia to release a fix for it with firmware upgrade. im not exaggerating by saying its almost useless the way its been, makes me very sad as this was expensive for me and the phone is so damn good when its working ok, If the crash and switching itself off is resolved it will be the best phone ive owned, and ive had many including E51 E71 E50 E61 E61i N95 6233 6500 6500s N73 etc etc.. PLEASE PLEASE NOKIA HELP US WITH FIRMWARE FIX AS I REALLY DONT WANT TO SEEK A REFUND AS ITS SUCH A GREAT PHONE, SOFTWARE IS PACKED WITH GOODIES.. BUT MINE IS ALMOST UNUSABLE.... Oh and to the guy whos phone died and just vibrated when switched on, try doing switch on just after you do it 1st time and it should go on 2nd time round, For some reason mine only switches on after 2nd go... Is anyone else getting these problems or should i seek Nokia's advice ?? Best wishes to you all for great reading, Nice to be not alone on this one...... Thanks
hi , can anyone advise me that is it worth to buy E52?
as i read so many of the negative review, is this problem being solved? the 2nd version firmware is out ? thanks
Hi, Can one put this phone into flight mode without restarting the phone? Please sum1 reply. I hate other SE phones where you have to restart for flite mode and then restart again to get network back - how annoying.
I had an e51 for one week b4 the mic gave up on me..ive got the e52 for two weeks and im in love... evn got a friend one hope the crashing doesnt hit my fone in the last 2hours it seems to be freezing without warning,although restarting the phone has worked thus far, nway im sure it isnt nything nokia cant fix :)
dev, 26 Sep 2009being launched in october 09, Thanks dev. But, are you sure about October will be launching month of Nokia E52 in India? Because, I called 'Nokia India' directly and they responded in the way that they don't have any idea about this model & launching of it. So, please tell me the correct data about this one. Thanks.
Nokia Mobile Fan, 26 Sep 2009When this phone is going to launch in India ? being launched in october 09,

Brown, 25 Sep 2009Thank you trf! The lights are off.Always happy to help. Take care!
Brown, 25 Sep 2009I have it for about 8 days.
The phone blinks (the lights around the navigation keys turn on) ... moreIt's an effect. The Breathing Light is just to add "spice" to the phone when it's just laying there.
Looks cool to me though and it's LED.
It doesn't consume much power.
It takes 5-7 days for me to recharge even when it's turned on.
Anyway, The steps are below to turn it off.
Because there's no firmware update yet, I've noticed that most issues come about when its factory settings are tinkered too much. This is where issues in most E52s I've experienced before and I think others have too.
Keeping it in factory pristine condition will probably keep it more stable.
Wait for the black keypad to come out and a firmware upgrade, then you will have the perfect phone!

The phone blinks (the lights around the navigation keys turn on) ... moremenu -> ctr panel -> settings -> general -> personalization -> notification lights.
Breathing Light -> off.
Blinking Light. This alerts you for messages you have not yet checked.
I have it for about 8 days.
The phone blinks (the lights around the navigation keys turn on) every 30 seconds. When I receive an sms the phone blinks every 10 seconds, and that's ok. But why does it blink when there are no new messegaes, errors or similar? It's just a big waste of battery life.
How can I turn the blinking off?
To all of u people out there,this is a phone&a good 1 so stop critisizing every minor detail.I dont think there is a perfect phone in any other brand&they r so many.Remember it is a phone with so many applications& error does exist,the important thing is to choose according 2 your need,so stop critisizing&make your own experience

I back up so often with my E51.
I back up entire phone memory to memory card. I ... morehi OJ,
Just directing these to people who keep b**ching about some perfect god phone or something, expecting it never to get busted till the end of time.
This is not for you or for people who are responsible enough to take care of their IMPORTANT stuff.
This is for all those who are careless enough to trust an untested device and just expecting things to always work, these things are man-made so chances are they'll break.
The next time around they should be more careful.
Even if you buy a Ferrari. You have to buy 2 because of the f***n maintenance. You need to like keep another one as spare for parts.
Anyway, later peeps.
