I still have my E51.
I may upgrade to the E52 this Thursday (August 27th).
I still don't like the idea that the E52 doesn't come with a dedicated CONTACTS key as this very handy allowing you to jump to your contacts no matter where you are in the menu or what app. you are running.
Of course I will keep you all posted when I upgrade but I may just keep E51 for one more year...who knows.
In reply to original Jamaican: Same experiences here man. It is very hard to let go this phone. It is indeed a fast processing unit and I cannot upgrade to E52/E55. Tell me, rather us if you upgraded to any of these. Thanks.
In reply to BS:This handset has a good battery life of up to 4 days with nominal use (8-10 small calls per day and nomial multi-media use). If you listen to music for an hour or so everyday, then you will be required to charge it on alternate days. I have been using this phone for a year and want to upgrade to E55 or E52. Alas! Both these models are not yet launched in India. Perhaps I will go with E72 or the cheaper E63(again a good battery laster) in a couple on months. But is will be a tough decision to let it go as Nokia have already stopped selling this phone (at least in India).
I bought this phone last year and since i have been using it,i never regret for 1 day ever buying it. I think it really worth more than the price. Please how do i upgrade my firmware. Help please!!!
Can someone advise me on the battery life (for an average user) for this phone?
i used this amazing handset fr bout 8mnthns an yr ago...i really miss it,,,it was mindblowing phone..so very sturdy...amazing...

Add'l apps was Share Online and Internet Radio.
Thanks to all E51 guru esp. Original Jamaican and Winura..

AM, 19 Aug 2009will this phone take 16 gb memory card?To AM:
Yes the E51 will work with a 16GB Micro-SD card. You can virtually use any SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) memory card in the E51. Even 32GB when it's available.
For best results upgrade your firmware to the latest because it will have better support for higher capacity memory cards among other things.
If you go ahead and get a 16GB tell me all about it and how the E51 behaves with it.
My 8GB works fast in my E51.

Thank you for the support. I will always try my best to help others in need of advice.
Since you are phone hunting, why not try the E52. It's out now.
Winura, 19 Aug 2009OJ, thought you've upgraded to the E71 mate...WINURA my friend, I had the E71 for a few weeks. A friend of mine gave me to upgrade the firmware. We swapped phones until I got the job done. The longer I kept the E71, the longer I found myself missing my E51 so I decided NOT to bother upgrading to the E71.
There are a few nifty things in the E51 that I prefer...like the ability to see at a glance, if text messages will be sent to internal memory or memory card. I store my messages on my 8GB memory card as to keep my internal memory as free as possible.
With the E71 you will have to go to options / settings / other...then scroll to the bottom just to see where text messages are being sent to. The E71 doesn't have the icon at the top left of the screen to show you these things at a glance. That's just one of the turnoffs with the E71. Another turnoff is the very long time it takes to backup the entire phone memory. The last time I checked it was about 10 mins. whereas the E51 does it in 38 secs. Bear in mind that this test was conducted with both E51 & E71 phone memory being as free as possible with no personal files stored in either internal memory.
I know the E71 have more built-in stuff like barcode scanner etc. but speed is key nevertheless. Furthermore I can install a barcode scanner in my E51 just the same and put it on the memory card which means my internal backup will still be the same 38 secs.
Winura my next phone may very well be the E52...even though there's no dedicated contacts key...but that's another story.
Until next time my friend, take care.
