Ankit, 16 Nov 2010Do not Go for Nokia e5
its Better to go for BB 8520
Which is far better than NOKIA .......... moreYou say that 8520 is far better. But look at these
1)8520 has no 3G support.
2)Only 2 MP main camera in 8520.
3)No FM Radio.
Also see this post in Blackberry section of GSMArena.
Tareque Do anybody know how to use Curve 8520 as a modem in Win 7? I am facing difficulies in setting up connection manager. Its not working.
*can the phone easily detect/connect to a wireless router?
*does the "touch screen" works well?
*quality of the camera, is it good?

first: go to connectivity => conn mgr => available wlan networks => define your acces point (here you can put your code, no problem with wpa)
(!!!! always make sure to ask first for internet connection not automatically!!!!!)
then go to smartconnection and make a new group with your wlan
ok now you go to (settings, connections, destinations)internet or something and you must see the new group (i think, or make that in one way) and put the new group as priority number 1
ok it worked for me, i hope with this information you guys get little bit further how to use wifi and email client or can ask me help

I have been using Nokia-E5 for last one month. Everyone is aware of great things about E5 as advertized, here are main disadvantages.
1. It hangs once in a while(once a day) and shuts down itself. It can hang any time, like when you receive a call, receive a new message etc.
2. One has to re-start manually and sometimes you have to wait for 5-10 mins before restart actually works.
3. 5M Pixel with Fixed focus is cheating. Image quality is too bad with fixed focus. That way E71 is better with 3.1M pixel and auto focus.
4. It does not show call duration of all previous calls. It shows call duration of only last call.
5. When you receive a message from new number, store the number to new contacts, message sender should be updated as whatever name you give to contact, but sender is shown as "number". It wont get updated.
6. Sound quality is OK.
Words cannot describe how elated I am having purchased this phone. It's simply AWESOME!
i am using d phone for abt a month but i am not able to set my mail account so that i can regularly check my mails..can anybody help me on this ???
ws, 15 Nov 2010will it like lag if i use a 8gb memory card?
and how do i format it in my phone?
what's the ... moreIm using an 8GB scandisk HC memory card, the HC stands for fast speed, i have no problems with lagging at all.
After you have put your memory card in phone, go to file mgr, Choose memory card option not phone memory, open memory card, press options, memory card options, thats where you can format card & change the name of your memory card.
