tin, 06 Mar 2011thanks it works now.. thnx a lot :)I'm very happy i could be of help.
Good afternoon from France!
I currently have the Nokia E5 in white color (I found its appearance more beautiful than in brown, blue or black) from January 20th of 2011 (I hesitated a lot between other mobiles, but this is not exactly the topic) and I must say til now this handset is really great:
- writing a message is fast and the keyboard is really OK,
- the entire device has good built quality, even if it is not premium finition (hey, its price is 200€ more or less with all it features and abilities, so do we have the right to compare it with handsets that costs the double?),
- multitasking is well handled,
- I can put some bureautic documents and read them on it,
- I have managed to change apps from memory card to phone memory quite easily,
- I have the ability to make VOIP calls and to surf through the web via Wi Fi (the Wi Fi sniffer is well done too),
- GPS is fast, accurate (thanks to the A-GPS; it was one of the reason I bought it, indeed) and I can use it around the world without roaming fees,
- although S60 3rd FP2 is quite old in the market (is this Android's, I OS's or Nokia's fault? the answer does not matter finally), I have never seen a Symbian phone working as fast as this one; sometimes, it froze, but never for too long or many times.
We just need to not ask too much, even if this device is a multitasking monster (74 task running, who believed that? And which other phone could beat it?).
Even mails have been a piece of cake to configurate (at least, for me).
By the way, most part of my datas in my previous Nokia N70 black (OK, it is old, but it still works for my 2nd mobile line) have been easily copied (not all, OK, but I still need a HC micro SD for all my datas, among others the maps and music) thanks to an app (why on Earth does other manufacturers not offer that, even between 2 phones with the same brand?).
Ok, it does not has front camera for video calls, nor (unlike N8) it has a super autofocus photo with Carl Zeiss lens nor hot swappable memory card, but I do not use a lot (if not at all) the 1st feature, the 2nd is used just as a replacement when I do not have my camera and the 3rd, well... as long as I can connect it to my computer through USB cable, it remains OK.
I still have one problem: the firmware update did not run. I know I need to be on Windows and to have Ovi Suite installed in, it is obvious, but it did not worked. Finally, could someone tell me what are the steps to manage the update? Do we need to be connected to Ovi, for example?
Thanks a lot for having read my personal review.
Ps: Nokia is one of the 3 mobile phone brands (with SE and HTC [at least, not purchased in operators stores for HTC]) that have a 2 years warranty on their handset, another reason of purchase for me, unless they make it a legal obligation in Europe.
which one is much better e5 or e63 any other option in this range reply me early i want 2 buy e-63

tin, 05 Mar 2011ive been using the phone for 3 weeks its was ok and have a great features.. but i hava a quesa... moreGo back a few pages and u'll see some settings i told someone to do, i can't remember who, OR, update ur maps using ovi suite.dat should do the trick, if not, back-up and then update/re-install ur phone's firmware using ovi suite
ive been using the phone for 3 weeks its was ok and have a great features.. but i hava a quesation for stanley, i have a problem with my gps its not working anymore but the first time ive used my phone the gps was ok and working for free but now its not working anymore.. ive done already many thisnd such as editting the positioning ang everything but then again it was'nt working please please help.. :) i love my e5 so much ;)
i already use this phone for almost 1 month..overall the performance is excellent..except the integrated gps (free gps) is difficult to lock the signal from satelit..however when you used A-gps (need to pay) the signal locking is very fast...
conclusion: signal locking is difficult without A-gps..
i already update my e5 software version to 042.014 using nokia ovi suite...
