SOFTWARE UPDATE FOR E65 AVAILABLE
FINALLY the software update is now available, visit nokia website.
I did it and it went through just fine, but then I started having some trouble using the WLAN feature, at the begining I coulnd't get it to work but miraculously it started working again. So I don't know if the update had something to do with it or what.
For the rest, the update added a wizard and another app called active keys.
I haven't had too many problems with my device in this 3 months, although I've experienced the very popular "self-resetting" once, and even the "out of the blue battery drain", also once. I can't tell if the update addressed these issues cause it's only been 3 days since I updated it, but it seemed to have improved a little bit the lagg in response.
Remember, BEFORE you update the software, make a FULL BACK UP of your data using the Nokia PC Suite, and be aware that any third party program that you may have installed it will need to be resintalled after the update cause the full back up doesn't work for applications, only data (pictures, messages, contacts, notes, calendar entris, etc).
Hope this info helps out,

WWhat happened to firmware update it was released for E65 but updater say NO E61i was updated instead.The code check is 0553428 and nokia site say no update. I am fedup with awaiting update to pepup the whole fone but instead i will sell it now! shame on the updaters sitting n Nokia HQ.
UPDATE SPOILLED WLAN CONFIG????
I just installed the update through the nokia updater and it seems to have spoilled the WLAN, I can't get it to work anymore.. anyone had the same problem with the update? I used to work just fine. It does detect the signal but when trying to start browser or any other wlan application it says "no gateway response". Any thoughts are apreciated.
hi der .wat abt e 65 themes .is it downloadable?plz chk it out.its urgent.
I actually really like mine. Reliable, good design. My wife has taken it for her own use now.
I want to buy Nokia E65. Please anybody tell me abouy this phone. Waiting 4 your teplys.
Can anybody tell me how I can change the size of the fonts on the E65? Do I have to buy a software for this? Help me out please.....
I've had an E-65 for about a week now. I always carry with me 3 fones, whether in the house or out. And this is the newest of the 3, the other 2 being at least 3 & 4 years old (6230i and 6230, respectively). The E-65 replaced my 4 yr-old 6100.
When i decided i wanted to be able to e-mail/surf/shop on-line in the house or in WIFI hotspots & make VOIP calls, as well, all via WLAN, I was convinced this was the fone for me. Since the above services' costs range from "free-of-charge" in the case of my home network to "very minimal" in the case coffeeshop WIFI hotspots, the WLAN feature was the only reason I got the E-65 fone, in the first place, considering I carry 2 others, which I use for in-bound & out-bound calls.
E-mailing/surfing at home (on my home network): works very, very well (no need to turn on the desktop, the monitor, and the AVR) just whip out the fone!!. Why not excellent?? Because I still have to enter my user name and password (which can't be remembered or can it?? Pls. help!!) in "Microsoft Outlook Web Access." However, it's very understandable considering I'm only accessing it (e-mail) via the web, and not via SMTP & POP3 servers.
Here comes the bummerS PLURAL. Shopping on-line: after logging on to my favorite on-line merchant, I was asked to enter my username and password, which I submitted. An error message from merchant then asks me to "enable cookies," which I subsequently did. I repeated the process, and yet, still the same error message. The same vicious cycle occurred 5 out of the 5 times I tried. It might be worth noting that the "allow" option for cookies IS REMEMBERED as indicated by the fact that the "allow" option REMAINS AS IS and DOES NOT revert to "DISALLOW." Pls. help!!
E-mailing/surfing at WIFI hotspots: since many of WIFI hotspots use pop-ups as a venue where u enter the username and password which you buy from that hotspots' cashier via a prepaid card which you scratch to see the username and password, I wasn't able to perform the above activity, as there were no pop-ups (to enter the username and password into). Even if i go to MENU > WEB > OPTIONS > SETTINGS > BLOCK POP-UPS > NO, as per user guide, within seconds or minutes, the NO I chose invariably reverts to YES, no matter what I did: re-boot, standby, back!! Pls. help!!
VOIP CALLING: although the E-65 has a built-in GIZMO VOIP software, I'm not sure if it (E-65) supports my two (2) VOIP service providers--FREECALL and VOIPSTUNT, both of which I'd like to install into it, cuz am not willing to shell out money for a 3rd one!! Pls. help on how I can do (all of) the above!! Anyone???
So for those of you who carry a fone for calling and only want a 2nd (or 3rd) fone solely for replacing that trusty laptop to (bring to) your everyday WIFI hotspot, the E-65 is not the fone for you, esp. if the hotspot requires you to enter username and password in a pop-up window. Unless of course, there's someone out there who can help me?? PLEASE??
To sum it up: Do I like it?? Yes, I like its looks. I share the partiality of those who liked its slim, ergonomic appearance. I don't have any of the other problems people here (in the forum) have, like the dust (not yet, at least), the non-lighting keypad, re-booting, re-starting, nor the beard getting stuck upon sliding down the phone (am clean-shaven).
Do I like its camera, MP3, Office, GPRS, EDGE, EGPRS, video calling? Those aren't the reason why I bought it, so I can't say I like it cuz of them!
Did it perform as I thought and hoped it would?? Yes, but only in the area of being able to surf/e-mail at (my) home or in a friend's or neighbor's or relative's home network, provided they share the network key if their network is restricted!!
For those who want to address my issues, I would be very much obliged, and please do send me a copy at my address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance,
hey there, just reboot the phone. orginal device setting. i had dat problem too. cheers wink
A piece of garbage, I have one and I know 4 other people who have one and we all have problems, all caught with a 24 month contract, optus don't care and I will not buy another Nokia after this E65 and my 6280, paying both off and both don't work and Nokia don't care either. DON'T BUY A NOKIA ESPECIALLY FROM OPTUS
E61i has been updated but not this retched cell site says its released but updated wouldt do it.Nokias the version is same for both but hear E85 STANDS LOOSER again,
Can anybody tell me which is better, N73 or E65? Regarding features, clarity and durability.
Absolute piece of cr@p. Bad design. Unstable, full of bugs. Only get this phone if you are prepared to spend days dealing with Nokia's non-existent after sales service. DON'T DO IT!!
Hi, I just bought the phone for 1 day and I have problem with the phone's sms, it is unable to open a new msg. Can anyone tell me how to slove the problem or any website that i can doenload new software for the phone, and also, where can i disablw the screen saver for the phone. thanks
Nokia E65 is a great phone. Its shape, its battery timing, its camera result. In all its simple the best.
