I love this phone, talk time is good enough and its wifi connection is great, its like using a laptop. The only problem that Ive encountered on this phone is this hangups while changing or browsing applications. Oh well it doesn't matter as long as you can use it for calls and text messages. It would be advisable to use a leather case to avoid scratches on the casing.

Hey Edy, if expired certificate appears to the screen, set the phone date earlier than the application/software that you will be installing, (eg, application date 05/21/2003, set the phone date to 05/10/ 2001 etc. as long as it is earlier than the application) when the application/software had been intalled, you could now restore the correct date.
I have been using my E61 for more than a year now. I find it great and my best companion. I gave my laptop to my brother and have been using my E61 to get connected online in yahoo messenger, hotmail, multiply, Friendster and almost any sites that I want to browse. It connects quickly via wifi. But started only yesteray when it gets low batt, i recharge my E61 then when I tried to connect again, I cannot open the Web option..I dont know why or what was the cause..for one whole day I miss getting connectd until now am trying to trace/check what was problem.. anybody can help? many thanks in advance...
I have problem with ''expired certificate''. Is there anyone who can solve this problem....???
This phone is great. Trust me, I have it almost 2years. My Brother have 61i and it is same like this one exept camera... +100e for cam and d-pad? It's stupid. Ou, I bought e71 before month ago but I will sell it. So small screen. :(
E61/E61i it's your choice... Bouth are so good.

and, for best avi for phone quality, you don't need those 700mb file... around 100mb would be the best for a 100 minutes movie...
I have been using the phone for 1 week now
and I am satisfied with some progress in using the E61 and its features.
Wifi Is Fantastic!
Screen is superb!
I can tell you, It will only READ 2GB Card
Im using 2GB Micro SD and used a MINI SD converter
Works fine, but When I plug in the 4GB Micro SD into the Converter,
the phone reads, Memory currupted..
And so with the videos I want inside my phone
I converted VIDEOS to 3gp forma to fit in the 2GB
and it took me a while but I have saved 4 full length MOVIES!
To save more Memory,
I CONVERTED the videos from 320x240 to 160x120
and believe me
the movies still worked just fine and it still filled the sreen very well!
I love this phone!!!!!
Good luck guys and enjoy movies WIFI internet browsing and communicating with this phone!!
Raghu, 06 Mar 2009Thanks Newton for your detailed review... Quick Q - I know the max memory possible is 2GB... i... morei tried .avi before, it's not working :P. but 3gp is work very well but the quality of 3gp could make people who watch movies on E61 cry.. i'm watching all my videos all in mp4 format (be sure to convert them to fit the screen 240x320 pixels) each mp4 is about 27mb to 30mb size for 2hours' usual dvd movie. and the quality is superb both for fps and the sound. (tips: convert to 29.97 frame per second for best watching experience). oh btw, if u own this unit and wants to fit a wallpaper, the TRUE size of wallpaper fitted on the screen maximum should be 320X200 pixels landscape mode. hope this helps :)

Quick Q - I know the max memory possible is 2GB... is it possible to store ".avi" files in it and watch on the phone?... most movies are in the 700-900MB range, so I was wondering if these can be watched....
This is my review in 2008, just for a reminder.. hope this could helps people who wants to own this phone in future.
+ superb voice clarity during calls
+ very good signal reception everywhere
+ great comfortable thin design
+ good full-fuctional qwerty keyboard
+ good & realible phonebook
+ useful 64mb internal memory with around 46,5mb ram always available in standby
+ fast writing speed in message or notes, no lag
+ great display quality
+ software compitability with other Nokia official themes of Eseries & Nseries making the phone's menu interface always look new (this is a very good mark, by the way)
+ fast menu interface of the symbian OS
+ complete kinds of feature & connection such pop-portUSB, IrDa, Bluetooth, GPRS, EDGE, 3G, Wlan, Modem, PTT (the last one is totally useless)
+ great internet browser plus wifi
+ nice and user-friendly mp3 player
+ very good music quality using original Nokia HS-23 handsfree set (found in-box with N80 or others)
+ editable equaliser for optimal good sound experience
+ remakable speed even using 2gb card (I'm using original Nokia miniSD)
+ great build quality, steel bodyparts/ cover. NOT PLASTIC like ordinary phone.
+ very good battery life.
- no camera (yes - business needs camera)
- so sadly, no radio with RDS
- slow java (.jar games / application)
- slow message reading ..IF.. using memory card as the default sms storage
- joystick, not as friendly as Dpad
- only one minute voice recording available as default (don't talk about 3rd party software-this still a loss)
- not even standard repeat alarm available
- keyboard needs to be improved for maximum ease of use (straight example; while driving - even it's so unsafe using ANY phone, actually)
- disastrous & unrecognisable sound / ringtone / music quality when using maximum volume via loudspeaker (this one is a serious drawback of otherwise good phone)
- pop-port connector, not miniUSB
- no standard 3,5mm audio jack (oh well, at least 2,5mm will do!)
- not ergonomic sim card bed (this issue may only occur for people who changes their simcards often, it's not really matters actually)
- miniSD access possible only if you remove the battery cover first.
Now the thing is about this, the Eseries born kind of 'all-business' thing, so they were meant to keep most secret valueable datas of the user very carefull, that means the storage (memory card) are designed to be located hidden under battery cover for maximum protection. But still, if you own this unit of E serie and if you keep confidental data on it, will you ever let anyone touch your phone from the first place? If anyone really wants your data they will just go (steal) for the phone, instead of the memory card only.
1. I don't miss a secondary videocall camera, but adding it will make it compelete of course.
2. I know some of the above-mentioned cons are covered with the update model of E61i, but some things are just stand for itself. Like this unit, i just won't exchange it for E61i just because of minor issues above. Hope u get what i mean.
cheers folks :)
buy E61. u will love it. i'm using it from early 2006. no other device come close to this unit. it is a lovely smart monster. it can swallow almost any program sis/ jar applications/ games that available everywhere. and wifi? WELL.. THE WLAN IS THE BEST FEATURE FROM E61.. then next best thing is the quality display. (no point talk about cam here as u know wat i mean :D)
Sara, 09 Oct 2008How would u compare e61 & BB8820 and why. Hi Sara... I have the same Q.. i didnt c anyone respond.. which is a better buy, the Nokia E61, or the BB 8800?.. the Ne61 has a limit of 2GB memory card, i a bulkier phone than the sleek BB.. but the BB8800 does not have a Wi-fi....... THe way I see it is that if a consumer is looking for a Business phone with focus on office emails, etc and not much of "consumer-related fun elements" in the phone (read videos, multimedia, games etc) .... then nothing comes close to the stability of a BB...but a Nokia will give a good feel of all the fun-related elements with the Business features as the extra feature (it can also have BB connectivity)....... trust this helps.... I think I will go buy the e61 from eBay.....
it cannot support 4gb micro sdhc. i tried with adapter (microsd to minisd) but the phone simply cannot read the card. then i tried the memeory card to n82 and it work seamlessly. so this unit support up to 2gb only. and i'm using it right now from ori nokia card 2gb. it's not enough though
I am using this phone for last 2years. But no firmware upgrade in 2007/8. There are some issues to resolve them like EDGE connectivity, Memory card response, Low RAM etc.............
this is ugly phone dont try this, see no camera at all as in absolutely ewwww ewwww :(
Now update and refresh e61 catalogs and download nokia internet radio apps
Farooq A. Khwaja, 14 Feb 2009Hi guys. I'm using e61 its amazing. My question is that I want my cellphone to ring a remin... moreI have a different Nokia phone, but I setup multiple reminders through the calendar function. One calendar note for each time period needed, then tell calendar to repeat the event.I had a hard time keeping track of my grandkids school times, gymnastics, and other schedules. (They live with me.) My calendar allows you to copy events from one day to another day. I entered all the events on Monday, told calendar to repeat every Monday, then copied these events to the other days of the week. You can also put scheduled events in your to-do list with an alarm. These can then be copied to the calendar, from your to-do list. Hope this helps. Best wishes and good luck. Robb
