Well if the entire board is changed (with new IMEI) then certainly a batch of Nokia E52 must have been faulty.
I dont know why these days Nokia is getting cheap. :| Every model of theirs is having issues. Even N97 has problem where lens get scratched. I am now worried abt my E52. So far it is going fine. But judging from the number of negative comments, I am now in tension.
if you guys are having second thoughts on this then there are other alternative handsets to choose from.. if you want something that has about the same specs then id suggest you get the 5630xm.. same specs altogether and the only difference i think will be the camera (5630xm has fixed focus, not autofocus) and the screen size (5630xm has 2.2 and e52 has 2.4). so if those things are a small price to pay, then go and get the 5630xm.
and regarding the FW version. the latest FW so far is v12 the 5630xm, so if you have bugs or yer FWE is v11, then just simply upgrade it to v12 and problem solved @_@
other than the 5630xm, you can also go for the 6720 (better camera @ 5mp autofocus) or the 6730. and both have similar specs and all that. though id recommend the 6720 because it has a 3.5mm audio jack and the 6730 has 2.5. so if you have some fairly decent headphones there then you'd lose the audio connectivity.
to make it short, best alternatives are the 5630xm or the 6720c.
dian gara is absolutely right! sell that **** phone immediately after u get from Nokia Care, before u regret.. (i sell my E52 quickly after get from Nokia Care) better buy 6720 classic
Nik Mohamed Kamal, 11 Oct 2009I'm using nokia e52. People had been complaining bout either a distortion or the line is not c... more@Kamal, do you ask me or ask to everybody here?
What i notice is the bad receiving and transceiving voice is because noice reduction system on E52 is nor working properly. Many E52 users have the same symptoms. No wonder users complaint it a lot. You should check Nokia Discussions Group on discussions.nokia-asia.com or discussions.europe.nokia.com
You will shock that many users complaint almost THE SAME; instability, hang-freeze-restart, voice problem, etc.
It's the hardware, not a firmware. So better you take it on NCC and after it get right, then sell it as soon as possible.
My E52 has been working perfectly fine. Why there is so many -ve reviews here? :S
Maybe you guys bought Made in China i guess. Plz check. My one is made in Korea.
Had this for about 6 weeks now, works issue phone, have to say, first thought was this is much better than the E51. Boy was I wrong. features are a backward step. Software is a joke and repeatedly crashes if I have more than 100 emails in the inbox. So slow I can literally make a cup of tea before it will send an email. I away at the moment the minute I get back home I'm swapping back to the E51, boxing this heap back up and sending it back. AVOID!
does this phone perform that bad?? hard to find a positive comment for this product. actually i want to buy this phone but comments here made me doubtful :o
i have e52 and my friends have too so ive experienced that it is a very good phone,never talk rubbish ppl

Just to add my voice to e52 users and hoping nokia people will take notice, just two weeks from purchase, my e52 failed to restart after charging. With regards to extended battery life as advertised,well, mine lasted only for 2 days max and needs to be charged. here's where the problem starts, you may not be able to re-start it again. Mine is still at nokia care center.
After posting here many comments about this device now me have a question too.
I have saved my contacts and all other user files from my nokia device to the memory card(micro sd) and i have reseted my phone.
So, how can i restore this safe file (backup.arc) again to have all my old sms and contacts?
Well... it is really confusing... GSM Arena says Nokia E52 - E as in Exceptional with a flawless design and performance ... while many users here complain of many problems like freezing and hanging etc. Is the phone really faulty? or can an upgrade solve the problems?
Would like to hear from long time users.
after three weeks with restarting problem (and 2 times in service) my phone refused to start-up with message "Phone startup failed. Please contact the retailer". 3rh time at service, they replaced main module in phone (this means new phone with new IMEI). People, obviously it is not firmware problem. Send your phone to nokia care. Nokia Care said to me that If I send my phone 4 times to service, and I still have the same problem they need to change my phone. Good luck to all people withe the same oriblem.
