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?
dear all nokia users, may i have the code for hard reset? my phone getting unstable, press A but shows B. Or, sometimes, automatically open gallery as i answer a call. I need help.
1. Is is possible play Movies in e61?
2. Is it possible to play mp3 music in e61? How is sound volume?
Why did nokia implement Flash Lite 1.0 when 2.0 was available at the time of release?
Why Bluetooth 1.2 not 2.0?
Obviously the Bluetooth cant be upgraded via firmware, but has anyone managed to update their Flash Lite on the E61 to 2.0 for more compatibility on flash sites?
Getting the phone on Tuesday. I'm quite excited about the little toy. Any Mac OS X users out there? How is iSync with the phone? Will I have to download any addition drivers for a Mac? Also transfering old number from my 6680, I believe the software supplied is only PC, so any suggestions?
i have a question about the office applications. Does this also include acrabat reader? And what is it like to use this and word? I have bad experience with these applications on the nokia 6680 and what i want to know is if the quality has improved.
Thanks in advance
Did anybody notice horizontal lines on the display?
Sometimes i notice them and don't know if this is normal or not. They are tiny, you have to look carefully to see them.
I think they are caused by mini SD card slot, but am not sure.
And yesterday I noticed a thicker horizontal discoloration of the screen, but only with Nokia original theme.
To Change how many texts you store go to Messages > Options > Other > and then change the number of saved messages to the number you desire.
For the call log thing, I'm not too sure...I havent really needed it so I havent played around with it much.
For the third party software thing, Im sill looking myself. Not too much luck so far though...
Now for the phone in general:
This is quite possibly the best phone I have ever had. It does everything I need and then some. The WiFi is such a great feature so I dont always have to used EDGE data. The browser itself is better than the one I have on my iPaq. For me, the battery life is amazing! I'm on WiFi all day long with this phone and I use the MP3 player at times too and by the end of the day I've only lost maybe two bars of battery life. The lack of a camera doesnt really bug me. Unless you're getting a real camera, cameras on phones are really quite pointless. I have a W810i for that when I need it. The E61 is a great tool for my everyday uses as a student. I would suggest this phone over any Blackberry or moblie PDA device. The lack of software available may be an issue now, but I think 3rd parties will get on it here pretty soon, especially since the E62 is on Cingular now. The demand is out there.
Ok, moving past the nice talk, can someone advise me on how to get this unit to:
1. store all my sent text message and not delete them automatically after 20,
2. Create a call log with a full call details, time and duration,
3. recommend a site for 3rd party software for other functions like GPS (& not bluetooth that is not practical)
I've had my phone for about 2 weeks now.
It has been a joy to own so far with a few set backs...
I noticed that the battery life is ok, seems to go down to 2 bars fairly quick..must be my occasional WiFi usage?? Not sure what happened but I installed a .jar file that wasn't compatible with the phone and it kept going to the "installing" screen when i turned it on so I ended up formatting the card and resetting my phone. Anyone know other way to remedy this if it happens again?
Disconnecting/Connecting to an Ad hoc router will make the phone restart and it doesn't like wifi connections less than 54kbps.
I know that MS and Nokia are in the talking about some licensing agreement, hope that steaming asx/asf will be possible on this phone in the near future.
Will this phones capabilities work on T-mobiles GSM network?
i have been a loyal nokia fones user started with 9100,9200&now using 9300 but impressed by what i read about this fone e61 which my service provider advised to buy but i need an opinion from someone who has used 9300 and thinks the e61 will be a great buy.i use a lot of gprs for internet and i like the wide screen for ease of reading.should i stick to the 9300i or e61.please help.
to Vik, seems some version of E61 experience certain issues after updated the firmware.
i've updated the firmware in my E61 for quite some time. the phone still work normally.
Do NOT update your E61 phone software because inevitably the blue special characters (above the letters) on the keyboard will get totally switched around and Nokia won't be able to help.
Bro.. Check out the catalog function in da phone... Update it and it allows u to download app like zip manager , quickoffice , pdf app and world mate for free....
This phone is indeed cheap for a Wifi and 3G capabilities. This phone can use Skype* (I believe it still in a process to be finally released for symbian) though there are other VOIP providers compatible with this phone, like VOIPDiscount. And yes Yahoo Messenger works with this. There are other IM clients that will work wih Yahoo such as Agile Messenger, IM+...search for compatible clients.
