have someone used the e61 phone with microsoft outlook? is the phone compatable with outlook and how easy is the synchronisation?
I am thinking of getting E61 and particularly interested in the wifi feature but wonder how easy it is to use.
Has anyone found it useful for Skype etc.
Is it easy to set up.
Do you have to type in the wep key in order to connect broadband each time
Assume the new E62 has no wifi.
Any help or suggestions. Thanks
Yeah, I'm not WiFi saavy to figure out all the advanced WLAN steup options for this phone. Are there settings to give the phone a better chance of a connection with outside WiFi hotspots?
Try turning off Auto Bookmarking. And I suggest getting a file explorer, to clean out the cookies, cache, temp and etc..
Yes a 2MP is nice as well as other multimedia functions. But you have to understand that there are reasons why Nokia disabled these. Until a work around, we should just enjoy this nice device.
i have the e61, its an excellent phone, especially for business
a 2mp cam would be nice and touchscreen, and an FM adio too.
can anyone tell me what is the purpose the that small white light in the very top left corner that comes in when ur turn the phone on. lmk guys thanks
Many thanks for the info guys.
Unfortunately, my problem is that I do not have access to the routers. I travel and want to connect to hotel, cafe, bar etc Wifi spots. Obviously, they will not let me near their setups!!
So, if any other ideas, please shoot them through. Also, does anyone have an email for the tech support at Nokia.
Anyone know how to delete history list of web sites and links viewed? Tried marking all bookmarks and deleting but I still get a list of the previously viewed sites when I go to type in a new web site address....

sry forgot to mention 1 more step in password protected wifi setup. i need to define the connection and save it first. goto menu Tools/Settings/Connection/Access points-Options-New access point. set everything there. i use static ip for password protected wifi.
Finally bought this phone.
It is ok. could be a lot lighter and less bulky like the Motorala "Q".
Suggestion to Nokia for their new communicator - Pls add a stylus as also a camera.
In regards to :
"No Gateway Reply"
To make it more clear, this message only happens if the phone does not receive a proper login window that the server needs for you to access the internet. This usually happens with private hotspots, such as T-Mobile, College grounds, etc.. Now If you try to connect a laptop to a T-Mobile HotSpot, you will get this log in screen, to input your account, and verify you have a subscription with the service. But in the Nokia's browser, it doesnt interact with that window, so this can be the reason why. Do you guys get it?
No, it cannot be done. Windows phones are specifically made to have compatible hardwares, so as Symbian phones, but they do not share the same compatibility. Now if you were able to somehow swap the Windows approved hardware to a Nokia E61, and run your own custom BIOS..etc..OS.. then you might be able to make it work. So if you are not able to access that kind of technology, then you cant change it.
To restore Master Key Lock,
without formatting your phone. Try this http://nfader.z-host.ru/
Might or might not work.
All E-Mail servers should work except those who restricts POP forwarding, just make sure you have your settings.
WIFI on Windows vs. Symbian
As far as I can compare, all I have to say is, its just how you use your phones. My Nokia E61 picks up WLAN signals perfect. So does my Windows phones. My Nokia justs lasts longer on wifi than the Windows.
Any other questions, just post them up. Hopefully my answers get through to you guys and make sense.
To Tassie, rx, and any other concerned E61 owner:
I just want to know a few things. Why is it difficult for this phone to access a WiFi hot spot without getting the "NO Gateway Reply" or "WLAN not found" message. I don't have a laptop but from what I understand it seems easier to access these WiFi hotspots using one. It's nice to carry this phone instead of a laptop but I guess there are limitation to the phone.
Also, does anyone know if Windows OS smartphones have less WiFi issues than symbian based? Don't have one either.
Thanks for your reply re my e61.
I assume you mean the router Wifi. As faar as I know, they are public and have no password protection (My Dell laptop has no problems connescting to them)
Any other ideas please guys?
You need a gmail account or something like it to use the email function for this phone.
But you can access hotmail through the web with this phone.
True, torrents are sometimes slow. I was just planning to use WiFi to grab songs on the go. It would take forever to d/l movies on this phone!!!
please i need the reply very soon .. could u tell me if i can check hotmail form fone ... i mean that how can i get alerts on fone that i have a new message on hotmail.... please let me know .. very soon :D:D:D appreciated :D
ok guys i am gonna get this fone very soon .. could be tommorow... please.. tell me is it really worth or should i wait for sumthing like the new imates??? .. users i need ur feedback
to madeline, the keypad is not hard to type. i don't know for those with big fingers. top of the buttons are coated with some kind of rubber, not slippery. the back of the casing is made of magnesium allow, sturdy. averall casing built is great.
i bought a krusell (www.kursell.se) case, type classic, red label. it's the only case that protects the keypad that i can find. but with the case, it's rather difficult to type. no choice :(
hi ppl with E61!
any problems with typing sms?
are the buttons too small to type?
