This phone has two major problems or issues as someone reported in the E61 Forum. The contacts has a bug in it and the other issue is the WLAN issue of always being on and searching for WLAN all day long! This phone can easily catch bugs and viruses with the WLAN feature always on and draining battery as well. The Contacts issue is a major problem as well. Don't believe me then try Sunchronizng this device with your Microsoft Outlook and if you have more then 100 contacts you will be in for a big surprise! Every contact will take forever to open up and the device becomes as slow as a snail. I bought my deivce in Dubai and am in Hong-Kong now. Nokia in Hong-Kong wants $420 H.K.D. to service the device as this is the minimum charge and $100 H.K.D. to have the software reinstalled!! $520 H.K.D. just to get the same software reinstalled in it with no update for a Problem that exists from the software its self! I hope everyone here complains to Nokia to get this issue resolved. The new Nokia N73 and E61 has the same problem with the Symbian being slow as well.
when i synchronised outlook from pc, the phone became very slow to respond, finding a contact takes very long time, certanly not desirable when using during business time. Nokia should bring software update immediately to curb this situation
Nokia is taking everyone for a ride. I purchased the Nokia E60 and the blackberry software doesn't intall on it. Nokia says you need to upgrade the firmware to 2.618.06.05 and it seems that they haven't released the firmware at all. I don't understand why Nokia would go ahead with all the press releases and make people buy the phones if it will not work.
Bought the phone yesterday. Excellent features. Very stable. Pure business phone. Battery is moderate about a day and a half with frequent use of bluetooth and WiFi. Recommended..
I Require someone's help in try to connect to a wireless router with PPPoE connection. Thanks
@ISS interesting test, but from what I know, E60 standly time is not very good, it's quite annoy.
I think it's 16m. But even if it would be lower you would probably not see any difference that makes sense.
My issue was fixed by reading the manual :) Actually when I put the SIM inside I did put it down and battery on top of them thinking that's it. But it is not. I missed what in manual you will find as step (5) - I didn't lock it properly. I thought that would fix my SIM message problem that I had once a week, but to my surprise it did fix unlock issue too (for which I was sure it was SW problem, but as it turns out it is not at the end).
Yes, battery life sucks and I was also looking if I could put better battery inside. So far I could not find confirmation that is possible. I didn't try official Nokia, but I must honestly say that battery life sucks in my case. If heavily used (without WiFi and any special features) it lasts 2 days. When idle, used only for wake up call, it lasts for 6 days. I think this is the biggest minus to this device - everything else is fine.
is it possible to use BL-6C battery in this phone for better performance or not?
(like some other models)
Is this mobile’s screen made of 16 millions colors or 262 144 colors as mentioned on nokia’s website ???
Thank you for tour answer,
I just want to say conguratulation to E60 and users because of this :
How is the battery life according to other users? If that is goed,maybe you get a bad battery,maybe can you ask to the place where you buy to change?
I got one for two weeks,battery life is too short, no more than 2 days. Nokia should put a lot work on battery, I think the battery should be hold at least for 4 days.
Can you please let me know how exactly you fixed your issue with locking/unlocking the phone as I seem to have the same? I can't unlock it after a while and the only option is removing the battery.
Anybody knows if it can just vibrate for SMS? I just got it and can't see an option to make it vibrate in Silent/Meeting mode when an SMS arrives. I actually had to get rid of one of my previous Nokias due to this glitch so I hope this one doesn't have it. Please let me know if it's doable because otherwise the phone looks very good.
Having major problems with the call waiting feature on this phone, just upgraded from a 6230i, when i use a bluetooth headset, the call waiting blips are so faint i cant hear them, i'm missing 4 calls an hour, the shop wont take it back, its been back to nokia 3 times and they say its ok
can anyone be kind enuf to tel me if i cud install symbian softwares (.sis)files in E60 as i did i nokia 6600 .... also can i watch movies in fullscreen.....can i install games in E60 through memory card ... pls help
I got the phone 2 days ago & i absolutely love it. Not too small & not too big. Screen is brilliant & clear. Earpiece volume is loud. On my previous phones earpiece volume was always set to the loudest but on this phone i only set it at 70%. Music playback is decent. Wifi & GPRS works great. Browsing is a breeze. Email works well. Battery life is decent. Interface is fast. I don't mind not having a camera as i've wanted a phone without one. The keypad is well laid out but they're a little bit hard when pressing. 9/10 :D
