to Jana or other E61 owners:
can the phone's volume up/down buttons (which are located on the left side) be function similar to a jog dial? eg. when viewing a long page, can press button vol down to scroll down, vol up to scroll up?
ppl do any body know where can i get software for E61 the last phone i had nokia 6600 most of the software i'm have for 6600 is useless for E61
i have one question to all you e61 users: what do you think of the new symbian 9.1 OS? The older ones get really slow over time and i was hoping that they finally sorted that out. Pleaz let me know
There are 3 ways to get e-mails onto E61.
1) Through PC Suite syncing -
2) Through GPRS -POP/IMAP Mails
3) Active Syncing with MS Exchange server through GPRS
You can only sync with exchange server if you have SP2 installed on your exchange server. Then configure your server for active sync. Then enter all server info onto E61 - The Exchange active sync (EAS) program. That's it.
One question to E61 users, is it possible to view and work with MS Outlook?? Please I need this information befor I buy the device.
Ok! I've been using for more than a week now.
The bad thing compared to 9300 is the email client. It does not have the option to set authentication for outgoing mail server.
Which means u must change to outgoing mail server according to ur connection, everytime u connect to different ISP, inorder to send mail
I wonder if nokia will come out with a firmware update for this. Cos it will be a pain if u travel around often, and business man do travel often. And they still call it a business phone. DUH! If they fix this it will be perfect.
Signal strength is not as good as 9300 too.
I'm currently using only GSM.
I notice phones with 3G, often signal is stronger for 3G and 2G.
But I'm very happy with the speed compared to 9300. I can finally open my excel files much more faster.
Instead of clearing your existing Gmail account, try setting up a new gmail account for your mobile phone and forward a copy of the email from your existing gmail account. You can set this up in Settings > Forwarding/POP in Gmail.
Hi BigBug - SG, i am also facing the same problem with the Phone book. Cant get the contacts to be sorted by "First name, Last name". were you able to resolve this problem.
Secondly I am unable to download all my mails from Gmail. It just stores around 300 messages starting from last, so even if I try to download new it will not do so. finally I had to delete all my old mails to have my new mails on the phone.
How do I configure to exchange server,is there a way to do so.
Can someone help me with connecting MS Exchange on my cell... I am unable to crack the same. I have GPRS installed and have tried all the tricks in the manual... else the phone is OK.
had the phone for just 1 week..
all that i wanna is there..for a smart phone..
however, there are some areas i would like to see as an improved..
a. jog dial..(very useful when i use the p910, bb..)
b. during sms..
i. t9 would be a nice to hv..
ii. entering sender no... (search should be that similar to treo650..)useful
iii. sms on chat mode. (same as treo..useful)
wlan.. tested ok.. both on voip..etc..need to check out the skype function(if any one hv tried).
cheer n hv fun.
ok thanks Jana,
found this in nokia E61 webpage:
"Sleek, stylish design – premium metal materials and thin construction."
to Jana: may i know where's the site that states this phone material is magnesium alloy? couldn't find the info in nokia website.
I enjoy using this phone. The magnesium alloy used to construct the phone looks so elite. The phone is really a business phone. It has every type of connectivity you can think of. Sound quality is amazing. Display and Battery life even more amazing. The phone is really fast. For that matter s60 3rd edition is faster than s60 v2. Push mail is fantastic. It is light and thin. So it fits in easily into the shirt pocket. Nokia has a winner.
Extremely light is the first impact upon touching the Nokia E61. Well rounded business phone, reliable, robust and solid. Good sound quality and excellent connectivity features (such as VoIP over WLAN - using SIP). Sadly the E61 does not cater for all Blackberry Connect packages. Check before you buy. Nokia website says "available soon". Not soon enough it would seem. Lack of camera does make it incomplete - sadly. 7/10.
For those people who want to know more 3G about this phone .3G ......? 3G....... Of cause this phone has 3G .I have this phone typing on it now. Even those this phone has 3G but i am not sure when can we start using it. Right now Cingular using the old 3G WCDMA 1900 but this has a newer 3G WCDMA 2100 so even if Cingular put 3G in your city as of right now it will be WCDMA 1900.
