I just got my E61 and I am completely satisfied! It's nothing short of amazing, only quirk is that it has no camera but thats no big deal.
I am having trouble with gmail, I receive email just fine but am having trouble sending mail. It just won't do it. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Hy..I have a problem! I try to install Agile Messenger on my E61,and it keeps telling me "certificate may not yet be valid, is expired or phone date setting may be incorrect".I'm sure it's the correct version.I changed the setting to "All" in software installation and online certificate check to "Off" and I also changed my time setting to Auto Update, as someone recommended this...but still it does not work..it give's me the same error when installing some other programmes, too...please help me!
hello evryone. pls could someone help me out. i have recently purchased the nokia E61, the problem is that there was no memory card in the box. and i was also wondering where i could find a Bluetooth GPS module compatible with this phone. any comments to my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) pls. thank you all for reading.
You must have gone to the US section of Nokia.
There they only have the E62. Try the European site, you have it there.
I have been using the E61 since May 2006 and I love it.BUT when the E90 Communicator is released I will buy it.
There is a new Software Update for the E61.This is the third update.Go to Nokia Website and use the Nokia Software Updater.
With the problem regarding the keypad backlight not working in dark places,just do a software update and it will solve the problem.This problem was only on the very first E61's that were released in May 2006.My E61 had this problem but the software update cured it.
This is the best phone i've used, ever. This is my 6th nokia and my 10th of all. I've had others than nokia but this one really works! I had nokia 9500 before and it was the best so far but E61 is more stable. I had to upgrade the software two times but now it works as good as it will.
On nokia's website for software updates, they only list the E62 as a phone choice. I can't select the E61 for software updates, should I just download the one for the E62?
Can someone point me in the right direction for the software updates?
This phone is a NIGHTMARE!
I've had it for 7 months and I've sent it to its service center 4x !
Nokia mess this up BIG time.
do you guys have any problems with the wifi connection? or the browser? i'm planning to get one of this...
am really getting this one...the problem is...i ve been using a Nokia 6600 and N72 for long..and the lack of a camera is an issue...however i would still go for it if the E61i is not out in a month.Just need some help.. can i configure my office outlook mailbox to it? and whats the max i can expand the memory without slowing down the phone? i love Symbian and i love Nokia but the Nokia service in India sucks... so do let me know if this phone has software issues coz i went through hell with my N72's software.
I have been actually very statisfied with this phone except one thing : the backlight of the keyboard disappeared about 4 montsh after I bought it in May 2006, a few weeks after it came out. It didn't bother me at the beginning and then I got used to it but now I wanna fix it while it is still under warranty. I read on the net that the problem is due to the fact that the light sensor gets dammaged after a certain time in the early E61s and it doesn't light up the keyboard in the dark anymore. There's other owners affected, I am not the only one.
Now you can imagine what the hassle is. I am on a 1 year assignment in Europe. I bought the phone off ebay while in Canada, from an American company, phonesource-usa or something BUT the phone came from Hong Kong. Nokia HK said they don't have it in their database, it doesn't exist in the USA by it's IMEI either so you can imagine the hassle and stress I am going through. Let alone I don't have the invoice anymore ...
And no shop would repair it.
Otherwise the phone is great.
If someone has the same issue or if someone could tell which nokia country I should contact, I would really appreciate. My email address is email@example.com and I can reply with the IMEI and the code and all. Thank you.
I just bot the E61 and think its an excellent and nifty phone. However I downloaded themes from www.zedge.net that the phone doesnt seem to recognize. the only option to get themes seems to be thru internet downloads. Can anyone tell me how i can use the themes i downloaded to the phone/card? thanks
Its good to hear you were able to update your e61's phone software. SMS and email is much better. However, sorry but I don't know how to enlarge the contact list font. For me though its not a problem as long as SMS and email has better font.
ive found this phone to do exactly what it says on the tin....no issues with it what so ever, this is running on 3.
regarding nsm messenger....you can run QuickIM available as a free download at wwwdotquickimdotcom....i find it to have sufficient functionality, especiallly combined with wifi...the only 'niggle' is that the edge of the right hand character gets chopped off, other than that...fantastic!
I upgraded to the latest software and writing e-mails & sms is now much better. However, reading phone numbers in the contacts lists is still almost impossible, especially in bright light. Any ideas?
Re: sim card registration failed - Nokia E61.
Hello, turned on my phone this morning and was greeted by the message: sim card registration failed. Took the sim card out and put it in another phone. Sim card worked 100%. Took another sim card from another phone and put it in my phone. Did not work. Got the same message. HELP ! Appears to be the phone. Had it for 4 months, latest software and so far never had any problem. Does anyone have any ideas ? Brian
