Anonymous, 17 Aug 2008Yes it's still one of the best smartphone around. I wrote a review a while back: http://www... moreI did read your review very attentively. I am using my E51 almost for one month by now and I agree with your comments completely. The only problem which makes me slightly uncomfortable with this device is the strange background sound which appeares in the earphones, like zzzzzzzzzz. As I did found out from Winuras comments it has something to do with the phones lighting system. More likely that is the sound which appears from lighting generator. Could you comment for this very issue. Your opinion and assesement will be very much appreciated around here. Thanks
Hi to all Nokia E51 owners, also to those Down Under!
Those who are looking for free software game applications and software utilities just click on to this web site below.
This page is specifically for the nokia E51 screen size (240x320) as well as other smart phones with the same screen size, so all the games will work (99.9% of them).
So your game issues are solved, I had downloaded about 50+ games and all work fine as well as some utilities.
I downloaded software for my wokrout at the GYM! Birthday manager that lets you know who's birthday and when. This website has all the FREE downloads you need!
You can also make your own personal themes as I did, I could not get many Holden GTS Monaro cars on themes so I made my own on this web site below.
You can also download your own theme maker on your mobile just click on below the website
This works fine on the ESeries as well.
So I hope this was a great help to those looking for free software to improve your E51.
And by the way do not upgrade your Firmware if you are not prepared to pay the nokia shop the price for a downgrade if your phone is working fine then no need to upgrade.
Yes I do realise some have upgraded and had no issues but what about those who did and are stuck with faulty firmware so dont gamble with the new firmware.
I have never upgraded any of my mobile phones firmware only the phone itself.
God bless you all
Also you can check out on the applications as well

Winura, 16 Aug 2008let me put it this way. take some normal application like eBuddy. when you use it to chat, you... moreOk man, tnx. And by coincidence, I also use ebuddy. Now I am sure that I will save up for this baby!!

The only unusual thing that happened did so yesterday when I was in standby mode, clicked on menu and a half a bar appeared at the top as if it was trying to go to menu but it froze...showing the standby stuff all the way. A simple restart fixed it and it hasn't happened again so far.
That was more like a graphical glitch, something I have seen happen in Windows PCs.
WINURA, I guess that number in bracket makes a difference.
Before I upgraded my firmware the number in bracket was 12.1 now it's just 12 flat.
I must say yesterday I received a call and the Nokia Tune was loud, frightened me somewhat too. Guess the new firmware does make a difference.
Winura, 16 Aug 2008mate, what exactly is your firmware version? this camera issue is starting to freak me out...200.34.36
Nokia E51 (12)
Olivier, 16 Aug 2008Ok, thanx 4 telling me, man. So u r saying that you lose money, depending on how much emails u get??let me put it this way. take some normal application like eBuddy. when you use it to chat, your mobile operator charges you according to the amount of data that has been transmitted for the session you've been online. it is the same song and dance with email clients like MAIL FOR EXCHANGE.
you don't get charged for the number of email you send and receive but according to the size of the emails you're sending and receiving. larger the size of your email (with a lot of attachments and all) the more your service provider charge you.
This is the best phone ever.
The main thing I like the most is the graphics user interface(GUI). I like the html viewieng on the wireless internet.
The wireless internet is faster than my desk pc that is connected via the unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable. I'm currently busy with it writing this
Hope you like it. TeenSA

Yesterday I updated the software of my E51 and am totaly disappointed because now I have a lot of troubls .alot of hanging in simple operations,my imap gmaild does nt work any more,some java apps dont work any more,camera sound is still there...etc. I reformated the phone and the memorycard but its still the same. Shame on you nokia ,people release updates for their products to fix the bugs not for creating bugs. And the problim is the phone does nt accept downgrading the software even if I used tornado or other boxes

go to menu > tools > settings > general > personalization > display > light sensor and adjust the light sensor to your desired level.
hi, i know this question has been addressed before, but i'd like some more opinions.
I want a phone whose technology can last (not be outdated) for at least 3 or 4 years, and has good connectivity on networks and for internet. Music on a phone does not matter, and i am not a business person.
Right now i'm torn between e51 and n82. should i splurge on the n82 for more "fun" (will cost 200 dollars more), or go for e51 which has better connection speeds and a comfortable keypad for texting?
the camera is only somewhat important, as in if i'm taking a quick snapshot with my friends it has to be clear!
thanks in advance
I am using the E51 at work today.
I tested to see if I would hear the camera sounds in SILENT mode. I don't hear a thing...just as I didn't hear any sounds before I updated my firmware.
I guess I'm one of the lucky ones as the old SE K700 didn't allow camera sounds to be disabled even in silent mode. Everybody on the internet complained about this problem.
I'm pleasantly pleased with my E51.
VOIP / SIP clients take the cake and are good even to put the E51 on anybody's priority list.
