I've just bought a s/h E61 about a week ago and it's really a wicked phone. I wish it had cameras for video calls but I can live without that. A bigger letdown for me is the lack of A2DP stereo bluetooth - its mono only through my stereo bluetooth headphones :( - but everthing else about the phone is brilliant - its 3G (though I do miss HSPDA - but umts is ok), its wifi (brilliant), Its infra-red which allowed me to transfer data from an old infra-red phone and its brilliant keyboard. I actually prefer it to an E71, as being diabetic myself, the huge screen and wide keyboard is great - that bit of extra width makes a big difference given my poor vision because of the diabetes. I love that it can view/edit my Word documents etc. I'm surprised by the lack of FM radio - but in all other respects - including battery life - this phone rocks. I give 9.75 out of 10.0 and it is almost the perfect mobile.

The E61 inspite the absence of a camera is fun to use especially when surfing the net through wifi. I have an E90 but the wide screen of the E61 makes it far better to use.
may i know how much memory can e61 hold? maximum size of sd card. please?

NEETU, 15 May 2009i am facing a problem with messg. i am not able to send and receive message with my phone noki... moreHi NEETU,
First of all you have to know about the about the message centre number of your network service provider,normally it is as +12digits, then;
Follow the instructions
go to messanging_options_setting_Text message_Message Centres_Option_New msg.centre_Message Centre (type the name as per your choice may be your service provider name)_OK_Msg.centre number(type the msg.centre number, then press ok
now you will find a new message centre number in the list, you have to select that msg.centre number in the msg.centre in use field.
hopeful it will solve your problem.
Umar, 09 May 2009I wnt 2 buy dis phone but i dnt know hw 2 buy dis phone &what is d prize plz convey me for umar......... i have one for sale...
THIS IS THE BENCHMARK FOR ALL INTERNET PHONES. Though there are new models out there, this phone could still stand up to those in performance. It has great Wifi, OS, and the possibilities of how the phone could be use is endless. I use min for the office, for internet gaming, and intertainment. There are countless of office programs that works for the phone, there are a lot of internet games i can play (MMO, MMORPG like travian, kingsage. etc). there are thousands of mobile games that works well with it. And the music player and movie player works well too esp while travelling long distances (pls. dont use it while flying)- you just need a decent headset like a SKULLCANDY-BOSE-ETC and an adaptor.
The only thing missing is the camera, and it make sense because this is originally created as a business phone. And that's why i love it, i can use it in the office without posing any danger to office security and policy.
This phone rocks, my E61 is almost 3 years old, i got it as soon as it hit the market, and it still is running good as new. Its a hard phone to beat, even by those touch-screen phones which are so inconvenient.
shsj, 13 May 2009how can i activate the wi fi features?just find a wifi hot spot, the phone could detect that automatically. If the wifi connection if free then you can surf using the wifi as the connection option. But if there is a charge, like the ones at starbucks (boo...) then you'd pay.
My phone keeps on turning off whenever I make a call... I have replaced the battery but still keeps doing the same thing.... can anybody advise me on what to do next? Any advice is higly appreciated:-)
