He E66 seems to be a great phone ... i use it for about 1 week now.
very very dissapointing is the battery life ... use GPRS/EDGE .. you can watch the battery level goes down ... this makes the phone totally unattractive for business use !
Hello guys and gals, this is a nice phone and I was able to see it yesterday at the local shopping centre there was a nokia rep with around $3000 worth of phones to play with around his belt, goodness besides wanting to jump him to get the phones I got to play a bit with the e66. It is a nice phone but I was a little dissapointed that the ring tones are not loud enough at the highest volume, he was a little surprised himself but said it may be because the speaker was at the back and in the bottom. My question here is for those of you that have one, are you happy with the loudness of the ringtone? It seems as if you might miss a call if you were in a place with some noise and the phone would be in your pocket, unless offcourse you have it in vibration mode aswell. Thanks to those that will answer this for me. Just wanting your experiences with this that's all :)
I was kinda disappointed....in the user guide, there is one feature "Option>Icon animation>on" to make the application & folders animated, but i dont see this command in the phone at all...anyone has any idea about this?
Can anyone tell me which text message font size is larger, the E66 or N95 8GB? Thanks.
i own this phone,and i am very satisfied...
about the battery,its good,last enough.
i have problem with my e66. if you go to camera the picture will turn upside down. then if you took the sim on the phone then it will display normal picture. can somebody tell me what's going on?
Fido Dido, 05 Sep 2008Hi my friends I want to buy e66 but I am so confused about GPS they told me that there is ... moreThis phone has both a-gps + gps. "A" means assisted as in, if you are on a wifi or network connection it will help the regular gps get a lock on your location quicker. You can then travel without wifi (obviously) or a network connetion and use the regular gps with maps to find your location and/or destination. The nokia E66 has the same gps chip as a stand alone unit. Now the whole map question on these phones is a whole other and confusing question. With the phone you get a basic map, no voice guidance or other fancy stuff. Sometimes the map is on the card to download other times one has to find it on nokia site. you can subscribe to a service through nokia maps which is a silly price. I would go get Garmin xt software on an sd card and get the full package for a one time price.

just got my E66, love the phone but keep having major problems using the WLAN. Like I can't!! Even using my home network I keep getting 'system error' or 'gateway no reply'. WLAN working fine, PS3, laptop, lads PC all using wireless fine.
I've played with all the settings but getting nowhere.
Any advice gratefully received.....
Hey all MORE POWER TO YOUR E66, read about it here:
Ahmad Satar, 04 Sep 2008Pros: Great phone, Wifi, GPS, Bright Screen, everything is perfect on this phone except the ba... morehow come mine lasts for 3 days in a an average use but in heavy usage will lasts for 2 days... ^_^
hope that helps!^_^
Pros: Great phone, Wifi, GPS, Bright Screen, everything is perfect on this phone except the battery.
Cons: Battery life is very short, if you are a heavy user it might finish before the end of the day !!! if you are a moderate user you will manage to reach the end of the day !!
Yesterday I fully charged the phone and removed the charger 3 am and set the Alarm on 7 am.
At 7 am the alarm was ringing for several times and then I woke up and stoped it.
What surprised me is that one bar from the battery meter has gone just for the alarm.
When I reached the office at 9 am, another bar was gone !!!
If you speak for totally 1 houre per day, you will have 1 bar at the end of the day (11:30 pm).
My phone has Bluetooth on all the time, all other thing, WIFI, and GPS are off.
3G is off (I turned it off to increase the battery life , imagine if it is on what will happen !!!
I am going tomorrow to exchange it with e71 as they say its battery are great (1500 ma) and stays for at least 3 days with moderate usage.
Nokia should managed to squeeze a 1200 ma battery in this phone as 1000 ma is not enough at all !!
What is the use of buying a business phone that will shut down buy the end of the day !!
viz, 03 Sep 2008N95 is much better and time proven.i guess e66 is superb & awesome no doubt
