You said in this forum that you have maps for Europe. I'm trying to find some, but they will either not working or my Nokia, or will show that the file is corrupted. Even Steve's maps sims to have some problems on my devices, so my only hope is you! Do you mind to share some of the maps for Europe either here or via e-mail or you name it!

After this company was bought by Microsoft, all the services started to close one by one on a symbian phone even the email configuration won`t work anymore to connect its server! And now they started again to make phones only to use its name via a Chinese company... Beware and never trust this company anymore!
Bad news, unfortunately... It looks like maps for offline GPS navigation are no longer available for download. In fact, I expected that this moment will come much sunner, but I quess Nokia (not Microsoft) was respectful enough to keep the servers running until this month. But now, finally, they pulled the plug.
Luckily for me is not a very big issue since my all E6's have my maps in them, plus I have a memory card with full Europe, so I can use them with no worries at least 3 more years. :D, maybe 5 years, who knows... :P
But, if there is a E6 lover (like me) out there who wants to backup he's maps, there is a workaround...
Until next time, have a great summer, everyone!
Becuse I am not a whatsapp user I can't tell you for 100%, but I am pretty sure that E6 does NOT support whatsapp. It's obsolete, it's a Symbian and it's from 2011. Also, E6 was born dead. :) But my E6 works for me like a charm. :)
yully, 26 Mar 2018does this phone support whatsAppthat was the first thing that came into my mind. If Whatsapp is supported I am so buying this phone!!
thank you guys for the answers (for flickering).
i think it is related to the overlays (that means, it is related to the Open... programming layer), with Belle Refresh and with automatic brightness control. This is indeed with 100% brightness.
I initially thought that maybe some electrolytes are going bad but in this case the problem would not be related to transparent grey overlays (like in the Messaging app in the right side).
Anyways, I really enjoy having this phone for calls, SMS and e-mails. It is possible to use Facebook but without Facebook account it is easier to live ;)

Don't worry about you English language, I'm not British too! :))

But is really not a problem, because it can be seen very hard and only indoors, and if you have maximum brightness indoors, it can hurt your eyes. Speaking of eyes, I think your brightness settings are too low. Or maybe is just me... But, don't forget that you have a very small screen, with big resolution. Personally, I use my phones with level 4 of 5 in brightness all the time, font size is on normal and I use a default dark theme.
If I'm in a very dark room, I use brightness control with Extra Buttons app or I use a app called "Brightness", if I want more lower brightness...
About the screen, sometimes I want to never turn off the screen (for example when I connect my E6 with my tv + keyboard), so I use a app called "AlwaysOn". Also, this app turns off my phone lock code. So, when I'm at my home and I use my phone alot, I use this app to open my phone quickly and I lock the screen with a simple swipe with the help of brilliant brilliant Belle Extra Buttons app.
PS. Sorry for my poor english.

Also, I can see it only indoors in front of a big light, or if I turn the screen at full brightness manually, but it's hard to see it.
Personally it doesn't bother me at all because this scenario it's extremely rare indoors.
does anyone have a slight flicker when full brightness. For example, with standard theme, in the standard messaging app, the gray areas are slightly flickering (barely, but still).
For example, in Opera when you open menus, the gray areas may flicker a bit.
I have two E6-00's (original are both), both are having this behaviour. The flickering is just slight, but still, I would like to know if this is common.
I have Belle Refresh installed on both devices.
BTW - if you are looking for grey E6-00 with scandinavian keyboard then I can sell.

Thanks for the battery advise, my batteries usually last long, so I don't have to charge them often - once eventually twice a week!

PS. One more thing about the battery: avoid charging it when is hot/cold/big humidity. For example, when is winter and you came home, wait at least 2 hours before charging it...

Initially i tried to install it without changing the date, but it didn't work, so I had to do it the other way, may be I was lucky! :)
I know about the 'slider - torch function', but I really don't like it! They should have use simple button to turn ON and OFF the phone and for the torch - app or extra button, like all new GSM's have!
Where do I find this torch app?

As far as I know, all apps are compatible between Anna and Belle.
Good to have Extra Buttons, congratulations - is a must-have app for E6! Very intresting the steps you took to install it, but I think you was lucky, I tried myself to install it with your method a minute ago with one of my E6's, but it didn't worked...
Anyway, about the torch, personally I use a little app called "BelleTorch". Open it, then press the select button - that's the fatest way to use this app.
About the slider, I guess you knew that you can activate the torch even when the phone is locked. ;)
