Well, just make sure this ohone is what you want. I must admit I did a mistake not doing research as I assumed I would not have problems finding chm reader for it. As it turns out, that's MS property and I would require Windows mobile based mobile for it. My mistake. But apart from that everything seems to be in order with this phone.
Right, E60, here i come! Any last complaints u want to make before i plunge 160 quid on it?
Note: Pls no camera comments.
My impression is that my battery will need to be charged again after 6 days, but this time I did use it more than before. I do use WiFi on daily basis to update TravelMate information (can be downloaded from Nokia site) and check email from bed. Number of calls and text messages is like you describe. Before, with such usage I would have it 4 days running.
VICIOUS!!! If u can do a week on standby that would be insane! What abt with ocassional use (ie 10 minutes call and 15 sms a day)
Btw, how has the wifi battery life improve. Is the new firmware more stable incidentally. Sorry for thenosy questions, but have been eyeing the E60 for a while and the only thing it needed was a better wifi battery life for me to buy it.
With no use prior to update it was 6 days for me. Now with moderate usage is more, but can't say how long as I still didn't charge it after fw update.
So how long does the battery life lasts now on average? On GSM and 3G mode. Would it hit 5 days if no use at all? What about heavy use? Can it talk straight for 5 hours?
No radio, but you have real player so I believe you could use that to listen to net stations.
After upgrade of fw I must say that battery life seems to be much much longer. No idea what they did, but kudos to Nokia engineering for fixing this.
Hi nokia e60 really super handset and camera also very good.Downloading speed is very good
Yup, as Goran says (pozdrav :) you must be online. This is because updater will then download fw and install it for you.
You have to BE CONECTED on net before you start upgrade program, else it says NO NEW VERSION.
I am in Australia and just bought a E60. When I tried to install the software updater, it says there is no latest update for my phone. The firmware that is currently on my phone is 1.0610.02.15 12-04-06.
It requires phone to be connected to power supply and you must do backup as all your data will be wiped out.
After upgrade *#0000# shows:
Restore brought back data as expected.
Whole upgrade procedure is:
1. Download updater from Nokia site 15MB
2. Installation takes some 10-12 minutes
I could not find document saying what changes/fixes does this fw do, but I did upgrade anyway.
As far as I can see Nokia has posted E series fw upgrade. I will check it out this evening when back home from the desk.
More to say about the phone: the more I use it the more I love it. Sure the camera may have been a nice addition, but this is a strict business phone, and its designed to be strictly business (ie. no camera). If you want the same phone with a camera, go for the E70.
For all still confused about Topram memory: the part number on the memory card itself is: "MC2GH01GDMCA-SA" and after a quick search on google i got this address: http://www.netcomponents.com/results.htm?t=f&r=1&d=1&pn1=mc2gh01gdmca%2dsa&ckirfsh=1
so if you're unsure whether a card off of ebay is DV or not, email the seller and ask for the number off of the card.
And for the questions about the case: I got one with my phone when I got it off of ebay, I'm sure that you can get a third party case for it. All the holes on my case fit perfectly, there's even enough room to slide the phone in with a wired headset attached to the pop-port without having to take it off.
I don't know why people are so afraid of ebay. I bought the phone and two accessories for it and so far have had 0 problems. Save money, use ebay! :)

Sign up and goto the forums. There is a dedicated Series 60 3rd edition forum with many many posts about sip/voip.
I for one have Sipgate working via wifi with no problems whatsover.
I expected more from this phone. When BT and Wifi are on, batterylive is one day. When you change location, you need to tevboot the phone to get access to the wifi network again. There is little explanation on how to get the get the phone registred to a sip provider. The syntax is very important but no explanation is in the book. When the phone can't register to SIP, there is no further explanation why it didn't and how you should solve this.
