I decided to reply too early. I replied after reading the first line of your reply.
After I replied I continued reading the rest of yours and realised you answered my question further down. The answer to my question is the file manager part which as you say, gives direct access to memory cards in the same was s40 does.
You see I have never owned a s60 phone before. It was always a turn off for me due to the lag time, weight, bulky size and enormous dimensions. All that has been changed completely with the release of E51.
In owning a E51, I guess the only thing I will miss is the full screen camera mode. That won't be much of a bother though as all my previous phones before 6300 didn't have full screen camera mode.

In s40, when you go to Gallery you see Memory Card at the top of the menu. You can then open it and see all the files and folders. You can do whatever you wish with each file or folder, delete, rename etc. You see every single thing on the memory card at a glance irrespective of what program the files are associated with.
That's what I mean when I say you can't access the memory card directly on s60.
You had a 6300 previously so you should clearly understand what I'm saying.
Even s40v2 phones like 6230 could access the memory card directly.
Winura, 23 Jun 2008i feel you depression towards the phone now so i won't ask you to go for the same phone. but f... moreright.. i am usin a 6070 which was lying at home. am basically drawing a blank.ok tell me, radio, bluetooth, n great cam.are wat i need.. which phone do i go i for?
I own a E70 and it was a good phone till the time the joystick strated giving me problems. Now I need to switch my phone and have tried some lower end model but am not satisfied with the loudness of voice when listening to a call.
I need opinions from E51 users on 2 aspects -
Is the phone loud enough when talking using the handset directly as well as when talking with a handsfree?
Is there any feature available on E51 such that we may be able to mute the call from our side (so that I am able to listen to the conversation but no noise on my part reaches the speaker)? [this feature is required when making conference calls where you are just passive participant and especially if you are travelling when listening to the call]
I have recentelly faced a problem with my Nokia E51, can anyone please help me.
I got my E51 around 12 days back, it was working great but yesterday i experienced a problem, that when i pressed the Main Menu key the phone did not showed anything on my screen, it showed a blank screen, no icons no nothing at all it was sort of hanged.
While pressing the back key i was on my main screen, all other keys were working fine but my excess to the main menu screen was restricted.
I then switched OFF the phone and in a minute or so i switched it back ON then i was able to go to the main menu screen.
This problem occured almost 5 time in yesterday only where i have to switch it OFF and then switch it ON, but today since morning i have not faced this problem as yet but it might happen again.
So can anyone please help me and guide me what to do.
My Email is: email@example.com
Your help would be highly appreciated - Thank you.

i want to know one thing.It is specified that E51 can support SDHC cards up to 8GB, but which card will be apt for E51 irrespective of the storage size.I also want to know whether its performance is best with SD or SDHC (both use differnt file formats,FAT & FAT32 respectively)If its FAT we can go only upto 2GB.
what about u all?
thanks for all ur opinion.

You cannot access the memo... morewhat exactly do you mean you can't access the memory card directly? the gallery shows all the images, music file and other stuff which are both in the phone memory as well as the memory card. and if you want to open a word or a .pdf file you can use quick office of adobe reader or you may access the memory card through the file manager and just select the file you want to open and then if the required software is available it will open the file you have selected. and to use your installed applications unlike in the 6300 you don't have to look for the installed application in the memory card the E51 let you access the applications from the installations folder. you can do this in the 6300 by going to the applications folder but since the phone memory is too small people tend to move the installed applications to the memory card.
and sometimes the E51 won't allow you to use the memory card as a usb like you can on the 6300 that means you will have to work with the pc suite or should format the memory card which will solve the problem.
the reason nokia has not included the option to turn off the camera shutter sound is not because they have forgotten but for an obvious reason, mis-using the camera.i heard they will not be including this option on some upcoming models as well. (the information about the camera option might not be 100% true, its something i heard from a friend of mine who works for nokia)
as for the camera comparison, even though both cameras are 2mpxl the E51's camera is a bit better than the 6300. but unlike the 6300 the E51's camera don't come up in full screen. but i have noticed something amazing in the of the E51. no matter how much you zoom the image resolution don't reduce. it stays as 1600x1200. in the 6300 the image gets smaller as you zoom. then video recording. unlike the 6300's 176x144 resolution the e51's cam gives out 320x240 resolution on video recording. so the videos are very clear on day time and not so bad at night. so its a lot better than the cam you get in the 6300. you get .mp4 format videos from the E51 which means even the sound quality of the video is good.
bought this a month ago and i love it!
it beats my previous P990i in all departments, imo. its fast, no software issue, no hanging problem, ease of use and battery last up to 5 days without turning it off.
just wondering if the chrome plate is replaceable? anybody knows?

E51 User, 01 Jul 2008To mark the files without opening them just press # key for the selected item...thanks dear for ur precious tip about marking a selection.
I bought e51 a month ago. This is a great phone. Slim yet full features packed. Great business phone.
hi can anyone tell me what it means in s60 call records "Detailed, max 30 days" what happens after 30 days are then records automaticlly deleted. and how meny are calls are in lists of received, missed, dialed? 20? 30?
For everyone who had a 6300 previously or anyone who sampled the 6300's camera. How would you compare E51's camera to 6300 ?
You are yet to reply to my post about Symbian not supporting direct access to memory cards.
mobile lamination is a process in which the mobile is wrapped in small polythene cover(which is a little heat sensitive) after that hot air is passed over this cover using a blower,which makes this cover to shrink lightly .After this process there will be that polythene cover all around the phone,but we don't feel it except around the edges.Then holes are put on this cover where ever it is required using a pin (ear piece, charger slot,headset & usb and speakers).All this process is very fast and done manually in less than 10 minutes.
I asked u the question only to know whether u know any bad results in doing this.Hope U got me.
NOKIAMIA , WINURA:
There's one thing I don't like about Symbian. You cannot access the memory card directly like you can with Nokia OS (s40).
With Symbian you have to run the respective application in order to get access / make use of the files on the memory card.
With s40 you can manage and interact with files stored on the memory card in every way thinkable.
Unless it can be done just like s40 and I'm missing something when I use Symbian devices. Please enlighten me if I'm wrong.
Regardless, that factor won't deter me from getting the E51. I'm impressed enough with the E51 to let that turn me away.
I guess the only gripe I will have is not being able to turn off the camera sound. I like to take candid photos so as you can see, that's a end to candidness right there.
The way I see it, the E51 advantages outweighs the disadvantages so I will indeed jump onto the bandwagon. Always good to hear from you people.
