The advantage is that the battery won't heat up as much when using Wi-fi...especially when you are on a VOIP call. The fact that the battery doesn't get hot when set to a lower transmission power level should obviously mean that less power is being used.
The disadvantage is that the reception is weaker and you are less likely to pick up a signal feed unless you have a Wi-Fi router at home or work.
Feeding from a Wi-Fi router while on the road will be unlikely to happen UNLESS the TX POWER LEVEL is set to 100mW. For example, from my bedroom I am able to connect with Wi-Fi routers from my neighbourhood when the TX is set to 100mW but if I lower the TX to 4mW I don't pick up at all and setting it to 10mW normally picks up the neighbour's signal but it's a weak one...so ONLY set it lower than 100mW if you have a dedicated Wi-Fi router at home or work.
If you have a Wi-FI router at home or work and set it to 4mW, you will see that the signal remains strong, you will even achieve connection speeds of 100% depending on how close you are to your Wi-Fi router. So 4mW is NOT bad at all BUT works best when you have a dedicated Wi-Fi router.
Experiment with the transmission power level settings and see which setting works best based on your situation. Playing around with the settings will yield different results depending on the distance range between you and a Wi-Fi router.
But remember, a lower TX POWER LEVEL means less battery consumption.
i have this phone and my firmware is 100..34.20, i tried to update it to 220,but its not updated.
i have charged my battery full, selected profile general,no encryption or password,have connected to broad band net with firewall disabled.
first it is showing the updates and will download it, after that when it starts updating software it will stand still showing 15 minutes remaining, after some time it will terminate itself showing RETRY.my phone goes blank when it starts updating but after retry also the same process is repeated. i have tried this with my friends PC too but the same things are repeated.Is there any problem with my phone in updating or anybody else faced the same.Please help as u people always DO.Thanks in advance.

Do you have GSM mode selected only OR you have both DUAL mode selected (GSM/3G) ? If you don't use 3G then there's no need to have it enabled. That decreases battery life.
Also, you can try setting your OPERATOR MODE to Manual instead of AUTOMATIC. When it's set to AUTOMATIC it scans for your network continously.
Also ensure that no programs are running in the background, not even contacts (smile).
Some 3rd party programs run in the background but doesn't show in the taskbar. Anti-virus and blacklist programs which block unwated calls. If you installed any programs like those beware.
Ensure that settings like WLAN AVAILABILITY is set to OFF as this scans for WLAN networks every second or so.
Other than the aforementioned, you can try discharging your battery completely until the phone cannot turn back on and charge it overnight. Repeat the process once or twice more thereafter.
For the design I gave E51 a grade of 9, It's an all in one phone complete with Wi-fi, Mp3, Mp4 and a 2MP Camera. Your money's worth of Buying this Phone!! Highly recommended!! BAttery is good!
To all who have a good experience of this phone.
Just bought this phone recently and i must say that it is superb phone.
I have one problem and i hope it will be solved here as i am new to this forum.
My phone is made in Finland i bought it in Dubai. The problem i am facing is that when i open web pages like google those small letters wont appear on the screen and you just see the underline and of course when you move the courser it will show you there is a link but you will not know where you are going.
I also tried to open the gsmarena website also wont display the upper letters found when you open gsmarena in your phone and same applies when i open BBC sports the link to myclub wont appear.
I have tried to go to web settings and changed page options and default encoding to automatic,western europe,unicode but it didn't solve the problem.
Pease Winura and others who have massive experience in this unit help me out.
I am from Tanzania and my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Hv a gud day
@Raj thnx for the info but the 5320 expressmusic is not yet avaible in South Africa, now i have to choose between n73 & e51
When you install Nokia E51 PC Suite on your Toshiba Satelite L20 Notebook, it removes the driver for the Wireless Lan. It has to be a conflick between the 2. Who will I need to contact to help sort this out? At this point it's a choice between the Nokia or PC Wireless, it's either both working or the phone goes back..
Anonymous, 11 Nov 2008Hi. Does this support gameloft's 3D & HD games.For gameloft's 3d and HD games u go for the nokia 5320. Those games will play more smoothly than on any other phone.
take out the paper and the trash.... Or you wont get no spending cash yakity yak (dont Come back)
