E6user, 01 Feb 2018You are welcome ;) I leave you with a extremely rare hint for those cases when you want to... moreThanks for the hint! Most likely I'll not install any apps, I'm only interested in maps and to get the WiFi to work properly (I have problem with this). By the way I bought another Nokia E6-00 (Belle!) and even managed to connect my wireless Bluetooth keyboard with both Nokias (Anna&Belle), it works just fine! :))
Anonymous, 31 Jan 2018Thank you very much! :)You are welcome ;)
I leave you with a extremely rare hint for those cases when you want to install some applications and when you get (almost always) "certificate expired":
1. Install all of your applications AFTER hard rest (*#7370#) and BEFORE putting your SIM card in the phone.
And 2. Set the date 2011 or 2012 or 2013 etc depending the application. In this way you will install applications like Shazam, AlwaysON, Smart Office, Quick Lock, Belle Extra Buttons (wich is a must, because with this app you will be able to close the screen with a swipe or get to a certain app with another swipe) and games like Angry Birds and Mau Mau.
In this consumer Era, especially in gadgets world, people buy what they wish, NOT way they NEED. The extremely good and aggressive marketing of the manufacturers works like a charm. But not with me, not any more.
And the final big tip: E6 has also TV-Out (with CA-75U) and you can put also (in the same time) a PC keyboard via USB-OTG or a mouse.
Nokia E6 is an extremely underestimated little phone.

You are not mad, you just know what is good for you!
I just bought one bra... moreHey there and thank you for your thoughts!
Big congratulations for going on a such great phone like little E6! Life is much richer and simpler wich such a device.
Opera store is a joke that Microsoft has over placed the original app store.
About the maps,
In all my E6's I have Nokia Belle OS, wich allows me to download maps straight from the phone via wifi. The maps are getting a little old now, because are from 2015 and for sure they won't get any updates. But for ME are still great for the next few years (at least).
I guess you have Nokia Anna OS version wich you can't update to Belle OS on PC ore via wifi beause, like Maps, suport for this phone is zero. In fact is not realy zero since you STILL can download maps for it.
The workaround is that you have to find a maniac with Nokia and Symbian (wich they still exist out there) that can help you out with Phoneix app for PC and other stuff. Personally i can't help you, but you go and ask Steve Litchfield wich is a maniac with Nokia/Symbian and is a very serious/professional person. He has youtube videos and www.allaboutsymbian.com
Or, get another E6 with Belle OS from the start - the problem is solved and you will have another battery and phone for backup.
Unfortunately, that's all the help I cand have for you.
Take care and keep me posted! Bye-bye
Lady tsunade, 15 Jan 2018Where can i buy this nokia e6 multitouch? I bought one brand new made in Mexico few days ago from eBay.co.uk
E6user, 10 Jan 2018Proud E6 power-user owner since 2012 and this is my storry:
Is my main phone, extremely rel... moreHello E6user,
You are not mad, you just know what is good for you!
I just bought one brand new Nokia E6 from ebay (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Nokia-E6-00-8GB-Black-SEE-WHOLE-DESCRIPTION-Smartphone/182501341397?epid=102311954&hash=item2a7ded78d5:g:ptcAAOSwhQhY1QCA) and I'm happy with it too. After trying several Android phones and few Nokia (Windows) phones before them, I finally decided to go back to the proven old Nokia's - last used model Nokia C5 (3.2MP).
However I have a problem finding Ovi maps since they shut down the server. Opera store didn't help much because I couldn't find maps there too, so could you please tell me where did you get the maps?
m also proud user of Nokia e6 , now I use this tiny for taking pics . Camera is amazing and produces natural colors . And I look at display and feel cherished . Also I listen to video , and playback gives amazing clarity , as display is amazing double pixel . Also with 8gb I store important pics and videos , as can't trust SD cards .
Proud E6 power-user owner since 2012 and this is my storry:
Is my main phone, extremely reliable but very underestimated little phone, nobody knows about it, everyone thinks is a Blackberry thing.
Very strong, Gorilla Glass, great little keyboard with shortcuts pc-like, very pocket friendly, very hand friendly, ALL the function I need (GPS with off-line navigation, Clear Black-display visible in the sun, notepad, TV-Out, 8GB+32GB, off-line dictionary, USB On-the-go, Wi-Fi, Opera Mini, Youtube downloader, extra buttons app, swipe to lock the screen, all data backup, etc etc). For me is almost perfect!
Facebook App, What's up App? Who needs that? :) Not me. Android apps? I have a Android Phone... as a tablet in my house, nice toy if you are toying in the bed... But when I am out, E6 is a more a PHONE than a toy.
And I don't have just one E6 (see below). :)
As I said, I use it from 2012. In 2014 I tried a Nokia Lumia. I've been "tortured" with it for about six months, i gave it a chance then in one night, at 3AM, I gave up and went back to my trusty E6. What a relief I felt next day.... At that time (2014) I realized I will use E6 for many-many ears. So I bought 3 E6 and about 5 original batteries. Hard to find batteries in 2014, impossible to find them now.
Wireless charging? Fast charging? USB Type-C, ultra-fast charging? Yes, my E6's got it all! I charge it in 1 (one!) minute! Just swap another battery!! :D By the way: you can use also BL-4D or BP-3L. Even BL-5K. 100% compatible and 100% safe if they are original. Also, use original chargers. A slow one (350mAh, Nokia AC-3E) if you want your Nokia battery to last forever. ;)
"They" say an old battery could not work properly, throw it away. Hm... My Nokia batteryes work just fine. :D Like new, actually!
RAM? What RAM?!, it's a Symbian!
In fact, Nokia E6 is a Nokia E7 with the same functions but in a smaller from-factor, a qwerty candy-bar.
In present I make a total backup data between all 3 of them, including settings (so I'm computer-free and if I lose it, I get another spare from the drawer right away lol) - this is the REAL cloud-buckup/drive backup/! :)
For anyone, the Nokia E6 is a junk, a Blackberry-Nokia thing, a tiny little something that refuses to die. BUT FOR ME IS GOLD! PURE GOLD! : D
I know is just me.. I know I'm mad. And I'm loving it! :D
See you around after few years, I will keep you posted! lol
my phone has problem so anytime i try to call the screen switch so wat will i do to retify it
Some specifications is what the Nokia N86 should have had. And no, a QWERTY keyboard or a horizontal screen isn't one of them.
The best phone I ever had. I had it for about 1.5 years and then it started freezing on me. The best qwerty on a phone. If they made the exact same phone with more memory, better CPU, and Android, I would pay top $ for it.
i have used this phone since am now waiting for Nokia 8 or Nokia E1
Anonymous, 01 Jul 2016hi dude .i also trying to get this phonehi dude. So where we can have this one?!
