WINURA, funny enough I have been at Skype site a few times since you told me about downloading the software. I'm yet to find N95 mentioned anywhere on the site.
What is funny is that on Nokia E51's homepage, Nokia says you can get both Yahoo Messenger & MSN Messenger Live as a free download using the download tool in the phone. When I used the tool I see Gizmo and some more stuff but no Yahoo or MSN to download.
While on the subject of communication I still don't know whether to go with Skype, Fring or Gizmo. Earlier Winura said Skype sends a lot of data to the phone and I'm thinking of too much clustering.
For ALL you people who have used Skype, Fring and Gizmo which do you recommend ? Which uses the least memory, runs faster, have more or better features, more intuitive, have clear voice conferencing etc.
I added you to Nokia Chat. It seems like a cool communication tool.
Unfortunately Nokia Chat didn't accept my Forum Nokia password but I was able to create another account with Nokia Chat.
I'm posting this from my E51 for the first time.

Original_Jamaican, 15 Jul 2008To WINURA and anybody else:
Other than the higher quality audio playback according to Winur... moreFirst of all i was talking about skype. on skype, when you're installing they recommend you switch off the voice feature unless you have a data plan from your service provider. they say you will get charged a lot for making calls from skype because it transmits a quite a lot of data. if you're connected to a wireless network and if you have skype installed in your phone you can make calls even without having a sim card in your phone.
By reading your post i understand you're not so happy about the phone's ringing loudness. i wonder why. anyway as far as i'm concerned i don't think there are E51's which are made in hungary.
To WINURA and anybody else:
Other than the higher quality audio playback according to Winura, what difference is there after upgrading to firmware version 200.34.36 from 100.34.20. I'm wondering if my sound volume will be increased at all, maybe a fix to a glitch. I really hope it's a little bug and updating the firmware will fix the sound volume.
It's strange that Nokia gives official reviewers like CNET, Mobile-Review and others the phone to test and some say the ringing volume and speaker phone is very loud and others say the ring volume and speaker phone is low or soft. These are official reviews, not user reviews.
I'm wondering why the differences in the authentic E51 which Nokia gives the reviewers to test.
I'm so disappointed as I know that Symbian phones are normally loud. To be honest my 6300 is a tad bit louder when playing the same MP3s. My 6300 is from Hungary and my previous phone before 6300, 6230 was also from Hungary and that 6230 was really loud.
I have always liked Hungarian Nokias because they NEVER disappoint me. It makes me wonder if I had got a Hungarian E51 if I would have been in a better situation and getting the loudness I truly wanted. The only problem is that the majority of Nokia Symbian phones are made in Finland. Furthermore, I said with Finland being the parent company I would, for the first time, go with the Finnish version for the best phone on the market, E51. Thought I would have been happy but I am not. Don't get me wrong, the features are great so far but the most important thing is the ringing as it's primarily a phone and missing calls due to low ringing makes absolutely no sense.
I miss phones like 3310 & 3410. Whether they were from Finland, China or Brazil there ringing were very loud. You could never miss a call even on a construction site.
I hope to find someone with a Hungarian E51 and if there's is much louder I will only stick to Hungarian models as of now like I have done for the past 3 years.
I really hope upgrading will solve my only gripe. I really do.

In regards to the above, are you talking about Nokia Chat or Skype chat feature ?
Also, regardless of what was said by the manufacturer, why can't it be used unless you have a data plan, suppose you try to use the voice features when you are in a hot spot...won't it work ? Have you tried ?

Bad question buddy, Nokia e51 has NO inbuilt games, Disappointing as it sounds
However, understand the positioning of the phone. Its aimed at Professionals, Not that professionals don’t play games, Honestly some one like me would not have the time & the spare battery for running games and the funky suff!
On the other hand it’s got every possible way you would want to connect!
Although no TV out or any Jazzz…. I don’t expect a phone costing what this one did to come with all of it. Overall value for money! Stylish & decent
Downside: Key pad (Too small), Metal body finish (Figure print snatcher)
Am I happy? “Yes”

1. Is it true tat E51 has a dust prob? Heard tat a lot of dust settles on the sc... morefor your 1st question,
so far i have not got any dust under my screen. but i know a person who use a E51 which is "made by nokia" which has dust under the screen as well as under the camera panel. take it to your nearest nokia center and get it cleaned. they don't charge for that.
as for the 2nd question,
basically its the same phone with a few adjustments on the E71. if you're a E51 user and if you're planning to get the E71 as your UPGRADE, i would say that it won't be much of an upgrade. and if you're deciding on what to buy compare the prices of the phones which they're being sold in YOUR country and decide whether its worth to buy the E71 with a quite expensive price tag. but if you got the money and if you don't care much about having blackberry on your phone plus, looking for a better camera than the E51, go for the E71.
Does this mobile support 8GB microSD card? The Nokia site's specification says 4GB max. So how does this info come in? Is there any user who got to manage to use 8GB with E51?
If there is anyone who know about this, it will be helpfull to get us known.
only one few thing missing in this phone model.
A Good Quality of Camera.
A GPS option is not available.
very good mobile by Nokia
