The Nokia E51 has 2 Version. One with 1 Camera and the Other Without any Camera.
It is Capable to do video calls but in order to let the other party see you, yopu have to turn the phone because the camera is on the back of the set. If youdo that the other person can see you but you cant see him unless you stand in front of a Mirror.
So if you want to make Video Call you can but it is not recommended for this phone. It is a Buseniss Phone not a Multi Media Phone.
I have a Nokia 6120 Classic and it is very good for Video calls as it has 2 Camera. One on the front and one on the Back.
iwant to ask if the nokia e51 compatable with video call, and have 2 cameras
hi Winura and Walid youseef
thanks for the great info..
Will get e51 as soon as i get a great
trade in deal with my w810!
My phone battery charge very fast in 30 minutes and discharge very fast too.
How can I test battery?
Just like ask ppl who seen all 3 colors of E51, and which color would recommend. Coz since its steel case, based on diff color, the chemical processing for making the color diff as well. Which render some type of color comes/wear off quicker than the other color. Any thoughts?
The E51 can save up to 999 Messages. To do that do the Following:
A- Press Menu>Messaging>Options>Settings>Other>Number of Saved msgs>
B- Enter the Number of Messages you want to save up to 999 Messages.
Do Not Forget to select the Memory Card to store Messages in order not to full your phone memory. To do that do the Following:
A- Press Menu>Messaging>Options>Settings>Other>Memory in use>
B- Select your Memory Card
i'd like to know if this is capable of holding 2000 messages in its memory?
Hi Guys. It is Walid Youssef Again. I saw some requests about how to use VoIP feature on the Nokia E51 and which service to use. I am pleased to give you some help.
1- The First thing that you have to Know that not all phones can use VoIP easly even if it has a WiFi built in. For Example the Nokia E51 and Nokia E90 are comming with VoIP Built in the Firmware of the device but other phones the VoIP is added on software by third parties.
2- As I know there are 3 service provider for VoIP Internet calls that can be used on the Nokia E51 Device which are (Fring, Skype & Gizmo). I used the 3 services but now I use only Gizmo. Fring is like AT&T Call back services. So they call the Number you wish then they call you and make a conference call. By the way you pay for both calls which tends to be very expensive. The Skype add some fees to open the line in the first minute. So if you make short calls it will be expensive for you. Now talk about Gizmo. I saw on the Internet that Gizmo is developped with help of Nokia itself. So it is like put an MS Office on a computer runing Windows which will be fully compatible. The Voice of Gizmo is very clear and it is the cheapest one. So I prefere to use it.
3- Now lets describe how to configure your set for gizmo.
A- Press Menu>Download!>Communication>Gizmo
B- Get & Install Gizmo Software on your Device.
C- Open an Account with Gizmo.
1- Be Aware when you use Gezmo you have to solve any problem with firewalls
2- In order to save the Battery life, make the Registration on "When Needed" Not "Always On" to Do that do the Following:
A- Press Menu>Settings>Connection>Sip settings>Gizmo VoIP LAN>Registration>
B- Select "When Needed" Option.
3- If you use Gizmo on Different Wifis (For Exemple Home & Office) you have to make sure that you change the Default access point to the access point you use in this time by doing the Following:
A- Press Menu>Settings>Connection>Sip settings>Gizmo VoIP LAN>Default access point>
B- Select the Access point you currently use.
Hapy use of your VoIP feature on your Nokia E51.
GG and Faris,
I am using FRING for VoIP and it works good when connected to my ADSL WLAN. Since one month I am using this with peace of mind. Best and fast business fone.
Needs battery charging every alternate days.
I just got this phone..excellent. Internet very fast, actually faster than my 8700 BlackBerry. Light weight, reception very clear, screen small but I wont use it to work on spreadsheets. I do have a problem, can not download Skype inorder to use the VOIP. Can any assist?
Change the date of the phone ONE year back and then install the thems. It will work. NOKIA E51 is the best phone. TC
I have a doubt. can we watch Satelite TV Programs???
What is 3G: HSDPA, 3.6 Mbps??
Thank U Friends!
Some good guys told me to download from www.Mobile9.com which i did, you may want to select your phone first before you choose the type like themes, ringing tone... I have some very nice themes that i like very much, enjoy downloading...
let me know if you still have problem
But have not been able to download any themes.. The phone keeps saying "certificate expired, contact application vendor"..
have been trying the download from various sites like zedge, mmc etc. but keep getting the same results.. my previous phone, the nokia 6233 had no problems with the same..
also i cannot download games in .sis format only .zip which later on turns out to be a .sis anyways..
whats the deal on the above queries.. please help me out..
To aloha boy:
like most S60 phones such as 6630, N70 etc. you can store unlimited messages in this phone. (until the memory is full which is a bit more than 100MB in the phone and your 512MB card.) i used to have a W810i sometime back and comparing it with the E51, the E51 is a million times better in almost every way except the cam which has no auto-focus. this is a good upgrade for you.
I have used for more than two months without problem.
The only thing I am missing is using the VOIP feature.
Can anyone shed the light of how to use? and what VOIP application is suitable with this feature? and where to find?
hi im planning to buy e51.. my main concerne is.. how many text msg can it store??? bec. im using this sony ericcson w810 with 2 gig external mem.. but iam limited with only 100 text msg.. and i need to erase everytime...
