Overall this is a good phone except following two problems:
a) Nokia E50 phone hangs at times.
When receives a new incomming call, the display freezes. One can still continue talking but unable to operate the phone as such. The only thing one has to do is to remove the batter for a while and replace it back. This is as good as Restarting Personal Computers.
b) Few numbers are not recongnized although they are already stored in the phone directory. I tried saving them in all the possible formats but no success. I still have get to see as if its a new number calling me. Too bad at times specially the other person is special to you.
Smart phone, one must agree!
I've used it for alomst a week - it's everything a business owner can want, and not too much more. For the price its a ridiculous bargain. Only 2 gripes: the display font is quite small (but clear and sharp) but not adjustable. 2ndly, there's no autokeylock. Thankfully you can download a freeware called Autolock V1.1 which installs painlessly and works marvellous. I've subscribed for Blackberry from my provider, and works ok. The battery lasts, with my usage and BT on permanently, about 2+ days not more. On that subject, synchronizing using the Nokia PC suite via BT is the best syncing I've ever experienced.
The loudspeakerphone is very clear and loud - but losest some volume when held in the hand. Works best when left flat on the table. Music from it - be it music or ringtones - are not the best but ok.
If you are one who loves installing all kinds of software in your phone, then know that the OS, symbian 60 3rd edition, does not have many programs written for it. The phone is particular about software and even some which are supposed to be 3rd edition specific are not installable. But those which HAS been ok, work nicely. There's also no nice movie viewer that comes with it...but at this price, who should complain really!?! I love my phone...just curious if the E65 is any better...
I'm thinking of buying this phone. Does many of e50 users have problems with joystick?
does anyone know a program that can upload the whole contact list at once from computer to nokia e50?
excellent phone with no problems. Just that it takes to long to open certain applications. But overall a good phone. I give it a 97% on my take.
i bougtht nokia e50 a week back, but problem i m facing is dat the phone become hot while talking. is dat a serious problem, if yes den what is d soln, plz help
i worst ever nokia fone i've ever seen.. hangs anytime..can't do software update..usb cable is very bad..
I just bought the Black Edition for around 9k in Delhi and the phone's ergonomics are mind blowing - its the sexiest little thing you can hold in your hand. I had actually bought it as a standby for my O2 Atom which is in for Service - and I must say that their service sucks totally!!!
Its an amazing phone - i need to check out the battery backup but m sure as a legacy of Nokia - its gonna be outstanding.
Ten arms straight - its not a multimedia phone - but its a business phone. Amazing to see that there are no preloaded games.
Loaded with office applications - Flash player, browser, mail client etc.
- Excellent Ergonomics
- High Resolution Screen
- Very Simple to Use
- Powerful Business Features
- Seamless integration with PC (Bluetooth/IrDa/USB)
- Very useful options which are absent on N-Series
- Excellent Batter Life (Upto 6hrs of talk time & 3-4 Days of standby)
- Multimedia Player (Series 60)
- Symbian OS 9 series 60 (So you can install new softwares) - remember you cant do this with series 40 phones like 6300
- Good Navigation (Single handed operation)
- 70MB on Internal Memory
- Ability to integrate with GPS features using an external GPS module
- Phone Book is virtually limitless (No limit on number of entries)
- No Limit to number of SMS you can save (Hats off)
- I could go on and on...in short 70% of my O2 Atoms features for 1/3 the price - Way to go NOKIA E50
- 1.3 Megapixel Camera
- Poor Inbuilt Speaker (Ringtones sound crappy)
- No FM (This would have made this phone an all rounder)
- 16M Colour TFT - (similar to 6300 - although a 256k is decent enough considering most N Series come with a similar screen)
- Option to increase Font Size (Although I enjoy the small fonts)
- A stereo headset along with the phone (They pack in the mono ones to bring down price) Personally I wouldn't mind paying another 300rs for it.
- Pop-Port connectivity for PC. They should have stuck to the mini USB cable port being used by 5200/5300 music phones
- Birthdays added to phone book do not get added as reminders :(
Over all for the price i paid for it, I totally recommend this phone but its meant for business classes or executives.
I recommend it for sure.
Nice phone, but i am facing a problem, hope someone can help me out. the first time i used the internet it worked nice with a cusor, i was impressed.

Hello Readers....if u need to have any guide come online on yahoo messenger and just have an IM to chatboy24x7,i will be just a min far from you to chat and help.......see yaa all.....
Although fone is cool bt am facing some kinda probs like low volume n voice quality as compared to other companies. also shows the contacts name wrong (sir name first) in the inbox and sent item folders.i have set the option in the contacts but in vain.Rest of things are ok
How to download FM radio in this E50 mobile phone. has any know pls. send me a link. Mob9879222870. Thks
Its a wonderful product by Nokia but needs a font magnifier installed in it. Psyloc font magnifier is there on the net but demands license, whereas this utility must be free of cost for Nokia E-50 customers.
great fone! only i need to browse in landscape mode also. How? Can anyone help me. Bye
The software is rather user unfriendly compare to 6xxx series for example. I am using a lot voice dialing (voice tags on contacts) and I couldn't activate this function, although I spend t hours reading the manual and making trials. Could you advise me how to manage that simple function?
the phone looks amazing has sexy features.... but the voice clarity is real bad and the opposite person cannot hear properly. got the phone replaced but problems continue. phone also hangs up when i get a call and gets answered automatically on speaker phone. missed emotions for the phone anybody have any idea what to do to make it work as good as the 6230
This is one of Nokia's all time best creations. I vote this phone as being the best of the best, along side the Nokia 6230. Nokia needs to expand on these two mentioned phones and create a mega-awesome phone. This phone should come in the user's choice of Symbian or Nokia Series 40 OS.
