Thank you. Thank you for your ongoing contribution to all of us !!! BTW I any ideas where to get an AD 41. It is not in the current Nokia catalogue as far as I could make out.
hey does any one know how to set up stmp and gmail properly ? ive been having a very hard time with it
Boy i used 9500,9300i,m600i(short period) and many blackberry phones all those phones not good enough for me but e61 is perfect for me. it has wifi(nicely works)one touch email and a good browser so what we need either(now dont say a camera itz not necssary for business phone.
I am basing my answers to you from my experience and facts related to this phone. 1.) I do get that "No Gateway Reply" when I connect to open foriegn connections, and the problem is , that connection is supposed to open a "Log In" on the browser (i.e. T-Mobile Hotspot @ Starbucks) this is the same thing as a WEP only, you connect everytime you log on. But the log in screen doesnt appear on the Nokia E61, making it impossible to get connection, with that, sometimes I find, that my Nokia E61 restarts when connecting to these connections, but only on T-mobile Hotspots.
And for the video, just put it this way. The phone was made to support MPEG-4, and has RealPlayer installed, so make use of it. Instead of buying a 3rd party application to make videos work, try to see if the embedded application works first. For me Super Video works excellent, I now have 4 Movies and 150 songs on my 2GB MiniSD, and still has 300MB left.
And GMail works flawlessly, you just need to set up the POP settings and the SMTP.
Thanks for the tip but I have been using the conn mgr to find the wifi hotspot but sometimes i find an open wifi that is strong and still can't connect. I get the "web: no gateway reply" usually. Do you have this problem as well?
Also, for the video I find that using the smartmovie converter w divx codec, you get very smooth video and good sound compared to super but that would use much more memory. so that's the trade off i guess.
I believe you need a gmail account to setup the email for this phone.
Thanks for the feedback guys!!! :)
To Saad and others:
For Super Video Converter use:
iPod + MPEG4 + AAC + 44100khz 128kpbs @ 15fps 192kpbs this makes watchable low file movie.
iPod + MPEG4 + AAC + 44100khz 128kpbs @ 25fps 336kpbs this makes excellent big file movie.
Make sure you click "Use Direct Show", and leave the "High Quality" option checked.

After the HotSpot trial, just use the regular Search For WLAN, and you should be ok.
Just try to clean your temp, and unsused data, using a file explorer. Yahoo does not support forwarding e-mails or POP3, so yahoo cannot work, unless your paying for it.
I love my phone. I could not update my anti-virus because not enough space. Any suggstions. Tried to delete music for mb but it was not successful. Anyone know the yahoo stmp? I got my gmail on my email but want to get my yahoo. Any tips.
i don't have a WM phone to compare the E61(which i'm using to type this post) but i seem to have trouble getting wifi when it is avail hotspot sometimes. i've used the birdstep software that comes with the phone but it is only a trial. It seems to work ok but that defaets the purpose of free WiFi. Anyone in the same situation as myself?
Could you please let me know what website can I download this "Super Video Converter" as I also owned this unit.
Thanks for your reply.
The AD-46 has volume functions but does not have Music buttons. I suggest the AD-41
I believe the AD-46 will work and produce excellent sound, but last time I checked the AD-46 doesnt have volume support*, I on the other hand use the AD-41, which has music functions and the volume control. By default, the Nokia E61 will reset the preset to "default" settings when listening to music, but if you have any of the adaptors, it will stay to the preset that you chose. I also use iPod like headphones, that has built in Subwoofers to balance out the sound, and so far, it is okay. And no the volume does not drop, but although I find the output much better after a hard reset and/or taking the adaptor in and out.
I have an HTC 8125 by Cingular, and an i-Mate JasJar, the main differences are they are touchscreens. When I compare my windows phone to my E61, I notice a great difference on how the windows phone renders the page, it is awful, with the Nokia, it views much better. Now for the WiFi, the only thing that I seemed to see was that Nokia E61 has more battery juice after 2hrs of using the net. The windows phones dies out quick. And no, it IS very responsive, and very stable. Trust me, the windows phones take more time into processing applications and slower. Although I noticed that playing video on the windows phone has less lags between switching from regular screen to fullscreen.
to Kannan, i don't have a window mobile phone nor other wifi enable phones to compare. but for me, E61 speed is acceptable. and if u r going to get a window mobile phone with 3G enable, the prize will be much higher than E61.
I want to buy Nokia e61, for the reason it has wi-fi & 3G.
My frined say e61 is very slow in operation, and wi-fi is not as good as windows mobile 5.0.
E61 Users, please give your suggestion 1) is e61 process speed really slow 2) is wi-fi & 3G working upto good standards?
Can i buy Nokia e61 considering wi-fi & 3G as main criteria? or should i buy windows mobile 5.0 phone for wi-fi + 3G?
Anyone using the Nokia audio adapter AD 46 on the E61 with a stereo headset of their choice ? Any experiences with lower audio levels ? Does the volume level drop when using the adapter ?
I am looking for a high quality stereo headset with boom microphone - that one could comfortable wear all day :)
The Nokia E61 is able to play movies at excellent quality, for this I use "Super Video Converter" on iPod, MPEG-4, AAC, settings. And as for MP3 playing, it is good quality. Just get an AD-41 adaptor and use your favorite headphones, because the HS-20 that the AD-41 comes with is really weak.
Yes, Group SMS is easy on this phone.

btw, have you updated your firmware? maybe re-update the firm ware (yeah, update the firmware with the same version) with nokia software updater will help?
