I've had this cell for about 1 week now. Here are some of my experiences: takes 20 seconds to send an SMS with two words "Test two" the Outbox. It then takes a FURTHER 10 seconds to LEAVE the Outbox. This on standard GSM and not 3G network setting. Using a Class 6 Transcend 16Gb MicroSD card. 350 messages in the Inbox or moved to the SD card make NO difference. This is unacceptable, especially since there is no SMS accelerator sis file available for addressing this problem save the 2006 version for the E61 that can't be installed due to a certificate error that changing the date does NOT rectify. Yes, I have updated the cellphone software to Version 3. Problem was consistent from version 2 to 3. If you do not protect the screen, it will scratch. Nokia failed to use a scratch-proof screen ala Apple iPhone style. Double-tapping most menu items to drill down is a slight inconvenience. Battery life delivers 3 days for me with no music playing, perhaps using the camera once or twice and viewing the photograph afterwards. Receive and make about 3 calls per day. Perhaps 4 at a stretch. I must admit I do connect to the internet occasionally with Mail for Exchange so that also contributes to my 3 days worth of battery life. I had to download the Adobe Reader from the Australian site for the E61 as it was not provided on the mini-cd nor on the phone itself. I had to download the Zip Manager in the same way. No Office Reader software. I am still adjusting to this cell and will report back after more use.

guys help me out, unfortunately in the quest of exploring this phone,by mistake i just switched on the online certificate check for every new i install!......now its hard for me to figure it out from where switch it off?......plz help!
Good choice ......I have been using this phone for last one month performance is good .camera picture quality is good, But at times some functions becomes slow . The best part is its 8GB memory card being provided with it, click as many pictures and videos you want . A good product from nokia . One might feel bit uncomfortable using its function who has been using buttons on nokia phone but adjustment is quick and easy. I would rate 7 out of 10.

Recently bought the phone.exceptional piece of work,you get the features of the n85 in a more funky feel.However,it tends to freeze for lentghly periods,dnt know if this is a software problem or just that its the 1st touch screen??
I installed v30 some weeks ago and since then i have got one big problem with the display, everytime i unlock the phone it flickers, so i have to lock and unlock repeatedly before the screen turns back to normal.. sometimes i even have restart the phone for it to work.. and when someone calls i cannot see who it is as the display will flicker again.. if anybody moved to v30 and is having these problems and sorted it out, please let me know, its urgent.
One of my friends managed to drop my phone from a height of about 7 feet straight on to asphalt while takin a pic on a chair. It took a couple of bounces of his knees, but still fell a good 5 feet straight on.
Anyways, guys there is a gap above the volume rocker where I can see the internal light...Nokia won't fix it...it's not so big, but I can see it and it definitely is felt while typing a message! I'm just worried the thing might fall off totally with use...
Please, help my out here guys...Thanks for any help!!! ARGGG!
