I have installed Blackberry Connect on my E61i and configured my email key for my Blackberry account. When I press the email key to open up the Blackberry Application it launches the web browser and takes me to the Nokia Business Software Website,VERY STRANGE.I can only assume that this must be a software bug.
I have also noticed that the call quality from the earpiece speaker (not loudspeaker) is not as good as it was on my E61.It seems to have a harsh rasp sound to it. I guess Nokia must have used a different speaker in the E61i.
It is just perfectly ok for matured mind and it is also classic I just like every part of it.This is great job by Nokia
No Probs.. happy to help...
As this is my first s60 v3 phone i'm on a learning curve...
And i had a problem... i searched the net for freeware and wanted some games to install with extra applications etc.... came accross some great s60 v3 freeware lists.. but when i tried to install them it wouldn't let me... So again i went and searched for an answer.. lo and behold, my application manager was set to 'signed applications only'.. so i set it to 'allow all' and happy days... i was able to install a freeware Suduko game, and s-tris (tetris)... also installed other app's and it works great.
One thing i noticed about alot of app's available for s60v3 was that the e61i already had similar app's installed... like people who owned the e61 decided to install a better calulater app.. 'Calicum', so i installed it only to find that the e61i calulater was already superior. I'm so very very happy with the phone at the minute... and also i found a few extra battery saving options... now i've had my phone fully charged for 12hrs and it still say's 100%... i'll report back as to how long it will last with the best settings and moderate usage.
Take care all...
Please tell me how to configure Homail & YahooMail access in my E61i..Please give me indetail procedure.I am not that expert...Please tell how these mails will POP up in my E61i automatically.I have internet connection in my phone.
Thanks for the infos, Dave. Now I am verrry close to buying this phone, maybe I am just waiting for something to really convince me...I really don't even know what that could be.
email button.... you can fully customise the buttons to take you where ever you want. they prob set it up to send you there so you can download the right mail appllication.
RE: Skype & MSN.. use www.fring.com (honestly.. do your homework).
Currently this app reboots on fring/skype calls but chat is ok... this is a fring software problem they know about and are trying to fix... what can i say, it's the same with everything new.. takes a while to fully intergrate with everything and fix all the bugs.
RE: One Handed usage... you can use it one handed, but not as fast as a normal phone.. it's best to use both hands... i've just converted over from SE K750i which i used one handed all the time... and i'm more than happy using this 2 handed... the qwerty keyboard is much faster anyway.
RE: upgrade from 9300i.. you'll notice a big difference in the screen, it really is a beautiful screen, battery life is good too (so long as you don't abuse wifi)... the other option for you is the E90 coming out soon, i was going to wait for it, but then went for this.. and to be honest.. never looked back.
RE: Camera... the ONLY reason i wanted a camera is for 1. car crashes 2. little stupid pix that don't need to be high quality. === This is no substute for a real digital camera, and you can't expect it to be.. but it does the job it's suppose to.
RE: too wide? I find it's a comfy phone to use, i was a bit worried about it being too big for my pocket etc.. but i was wrong... it's so slim, and not that wide... I would say that for it's functionality.. it's a perfect size.
anyway i've taken up way too much room here... time for someone else to share...
Take care all, and good luck with what every choices you make.
When you press the key with the envelope symbol on it (email key)it launches the web browser and takes you to the Nokia Business Software Website.Surely this must be a bug.
The Notification Light doesn't blink when someone leaves you a voicemail message.
In the Notification Light settings it needs an option for voicemail messages so you can set it to blink.
NOKIA PLEASE TAKE NOTE.
Ali: yes, it is a little bit wide which can make one-handed operation difficult in some, but not many, circumstances. However, it needs to be wide to accommodate the brilliant, big screen. It's no fashion phone, but is an excellent high-end business phone.
Hi, Can anyone tell me how to use MSN messenger and SKYPE on this phone? Where to find the software?
For those people who own this Nokia E61i, I wanted to ask; is the phone too wide? I really like this phone but am concerned that it'll be too wide & uncomfortable to use it with only 1 hand (?). Please let me know.
dave please can u tell me shall i go for e61i or not , rite now i hav 9300i but it hasnt got a camera, tell me will it b an ok choice if i switch to e61i, i really like its shape. thank u, please reply soon.
Re: battery life..
Firstly i've had this phone now for a week, and i love a lot of things about it...
Everything worked perfectly.. push email, meadia player, bluetooth, battery life was excellent etc...
Except 1 problem i could only surf 1 or 2 pages on my wifi connection, then it would time out etc... So i googled it to see if anyone had any answers and i found that when i turned the wifi power saving option off the wifi worked perfectly, however my battery now only lasts 16-18hrs moderate use, and the phone feels hot, like it's squeezing every little bit of power out of the battery all the time.
So i'm switching the wifi back onto 'Power Saving mode' and hopefully it'll be back to normal.
Note: to get to power saving option
Menu>Tools>Settings>Connection>Wireless LAN>(left soft button) Advanced Settings>(turn auto config off)>powersaving
Hope that helps anyone with A: battery problem, or B: wifi problem.
Is E61i works on HSDPA???
please look at : http://www.nokia-asia.com/nokia/0,,82183,00.html?model=E62,E61i,N95&feature=100&status=new
If your battery isn't lasting you very long, try turning off WLAN scanning. I left mine on and the battery depleted faster than it does now that I have it off. Could be just my imagination though.
I got this phone 2 month back, and i got 2 problems:
1 - phone turns off by itself
2 - battery lasts me half a day
Could possibly be battery problem? phone turning off by itself maybe due to battery, and lasting me only half a day also. I am a moderate user, the usual, work blue tooth headset and SMS.
HELP advice please :)
i have posted pics taken with e61i and n95....they are at www.flickr.com/photos/hakeem
feel free to comment
Not a comment, but a question for the E61i users.
I have read all the technical info from the readers, thanks.
But! It's basic function is a phone, does it have a loud enough ringing volume?
Thanks for your responce, I left out grey area not clarified.
Firstly, are the applications for Nokia N80 which I presently use; compatable with the E61i ?
Secondly, while viewing video clips and browsing the net, do you get borders around the screen ?
Thridly, could you confirm if the E61i use 330hz proccessor. I'd very much like to know if you expirence any lag while switching menus. Does it frezee during usage ?
Lastly, is the back cover made of metal ?
Thanks in anticipation.
