Just got my E61. Love it. But it seems to be quite buggy. Hung twice just on the first day of using it.
WLAN - fast n impressive.
Blackberry Connect - works perfectly. Installation and configuration was easy and fast. Within 15min i got my corp emails delivered onto my E61.
Agile Messenger beta - for MSN Messenger/Yahoo/ICQ etc works also. However need to get the .SiS file onto the phone first then install using App Mgr. Cant seem to install directly using web browser via my home WLAN
Supports Chinese Characters!!
Only 1 problem so far:
Phone book. Cant get the contacts to be sorted by "First name, Last name". BUG i think. cos it resets to "Last Name, First Name", eventhough i set it as "First Name, Last Name". Anyone has this problem?
It hass Push to talk
It has GPS sofware butneed a reciever
It does not have msn messenger
The browser is perfect, the wi-fi is fast
Got this phone in S'pore yesterday.
Support Chinese input through Pin Ying.
Great phone, with good features.
The only down side that I see and no one posted here before is that the package did not include a pouch or cover for this phone like BB does ..... and I can't find any one selling a suitable one here.
How is the battery life?Also can this E61 play video? 15 fps or 30 fps? Thanks
Hi, I had (it fell in the toilet last night and is now fried) a Blackberry 8700g and I am trying to decide whether to stick with Blackberry or switch to Nokia E61. A friend has one and he is raving about it but other reviews on the net aren't giving it high marks. For those of you who own it, do you suggest it over the bberry? Thanks!
To Tanat :
I finished my backup through USB.
I'm using PC Suite 6.80.22
The only error is it says it cannot include contacts in the backup, as it is not compatible with other phones.
Duh! I thought backup was for E61, who cares about transfering to other phone.
Its a very very good phone .. much faster than the Nokia 9500 & 9300 ..
it could be the best is there was just a 1mp camera on it ..
I also just got my phone. I was trying to use both USB cable and IrDA to backup my phone using Backup application coming with Nokia PC Suite.
When I start my backup, it runs for 1%, and said that the phone was disconnected, and please reconnect the phone. The problem is...the phone is really connected.
I have tried for many times, but still couldn't backup my phone.
Does anyone have idea?
By the way, just to check with you guys who have this phone.
My firmware is
Anyone has an earlier or later version?
Just post your version, so that we can find out more about our phones
I just got it today.
For Dr. Mendez : Yes its got Push to talk
For Dino : I'm not sure the difference, but my Bluetooth Rikaline 6033 GPS works.
This is THE phone to have.
It's got wireless-G, so surfing and downloading mails is fast.
I notice it opens up documents much faster than my old 9300.
One feature that surprise me is the "Say caller's name. When it rings, it also says out the name of the caller. Cool... no need to dig out of my pocket and look who's calling. Now I need to hear who's calling.
I do not know what processor it has, but it's sure much faster than 9300.
Email client is definitely best.
I think I can go on an on about it's good features.
But the only negative thing is the buttons, if you have a small hand and want to operate with one hand, make sure your thumb is as long as the width of the phone.
I like the feel of it too, simply just can't let go of it.
If there are so many people addicted to BlackBerry.
I think I'm addicted to E61.
I hope there will be more cool softwares to download for this phone.
GoodBye Windows Mobile.
beautiful phone! best in the market right now! really wanted radio in my phone, that was disappointing but got my headset with built in fm-radio so solved that problem!
does anyone know what the difference is between these navigation recievers?
>Nokia Navigation Pack LD-2
>Nokia Wireless GPS Module LD-3W
>Nokia Wireless GPS Module LD-1W
I wanna know because it's not clearly discribed on the nokia website. It says that the LD-2 is 2D and 3D graphics but i'm not what the other two look like.
Just got it and played with it. its an awsome phone but only down side is no cam which i really dont care since i have 8MP SOny cam. Performance is awsome, faster than 7710 and 9500. I love it ( i read something about phonebook problem but there isnt any problem.)
The Nokia E61 works great with BlackBerry connect. There are also other corporate email solutions such as ActiveSync, Seven and Good.
I think it is by far and away the best smartphone available:
just got this phone in new delhi 2 days ago. nokia has again prooved that they are the best.
where is the front camera ?how can i use 3gvideo call if it dont have front camera
Hello everyone. My question for anyone who has the phone or has knowledge of the phone. Does it have push to talk? As far as navigating through the screen is it just the joystick? No touch screen correct?
Thanks for your answer.
I didn't really like the downsides you statted, specially the ones regarding the phone book search conditions, the lack of options regaring the calendar...
The thing is though that here in Spain, almost nobody has the phone, so it may be quite hard to finf someonewho might give me an opinion...
Dond't know... I'll keep on looking for opinions...
żANY ONE ELSE CAN HELP ME OUT? ż9300i OR E61?
you can soom in and out while surfing...just press * (zoom in?) or # (zoom out)...
and don't press the end button just press the menu button (once to go to the menu, twice to go to the standby screen) and your applications will run in the background still....
holding the menu down for a couple seconds will show you all the apps you have running...
just in case you didn't know...
it has a full HTML browser which I like better than Opera IMO...
for those that don't have the e61, it also has a seperate WAP browser which i use for downloads etc....you can also set two different access points to each browser and run them simultaneously...
I had the same dilemma as u but I decided to try something different so I went with the E61. I have it for only two days so I’m not yet sure if I made the right choice or not.
Pro: vibration, great display, size and weight,e-mail client is a little bit superior to the one on 9300i,sepecial key for voice notes,it adds itself the voice tags for all default numbers and applications so u do not have to train it yourself(this is great),the active standby screen shows u meetings,shortcuts,even a part of the inbox,
Against: phone book search(only first or last name-this really sucks),keyboard smaller and the numeric keys are not separated, only one alarm and also without repeating,mini Sd,
Calendar appointments with very few options,no more zoom from keyboard,no more enter key,no more menu with file/edit and so on.,if u pres the end key u close the application(it won’t run in background),very few third party applications available yet.
I haven’t got the chance yet to test the music player , the 3G data transfer and the autonomy.
So far is hard to get adjusted to the new phone but I’m doing my best. If u really want an advice here’s one:go and see one E61,perhaps one of your friends has one and u can try it a bit.Only after make the decision
