I just got this phone. I'm from indonesia and here the phone doesn't support reading/writing chinese (mandarin). So I used NSS to change the firmware code to Singapore unit, #0541679 which support English & Chinese (simplified).
After all was done. It worked fine reading & writing chinese. But there's a bug/weird thing.
When I write sms using chinese after I'm done and want to add recipient. now i can't write ABC to search for the name of the person. I could only enter chinese or numbers, not abc... So I have to switch the writing language back after writing chinese so i can add/search the phone numbers... It kinds of annoying if need to write several messages...
Anyone has idea/tips?
Mak, 16 Oct 2008 i have nokia e51 and i want to change my mobile with nokia e61i, is it ok Yes if you want qwerty and bigger screen + more internal memory...
No if you want more speed (faster).
I just upgraded from 5500 and thought that even e61i is slightly slower. Nsysinfo shows 500 as 235 while e61i as 202mhz... But I like the bigger screen, qwerty, and more internal memory.
I just changed from 5500 to e61i... e61i surprisingly is slightly slower than the 5500... But other than that the bigger screen and qwerty are welcomed along with the extra internal memory...
For switching from e51 to e61i i think it would be the same case as mine but with more noticeable speed difference.

thank you man for your honestcomments.despite being an e61i owner you clearly pointed out the shortcomings of the big E.
THANK YOU MAN
I am looking forward to buy E1i i wana know can i edit word, excle,ppt, pdf files which are created earlier. and hows the overall performance of the phone.
please reply to me
Nokia E61i is much better because of wide screen, comfortable keypad and good design than Nokia E71i. Nokia E71i is good for higher processor 128MB RAM and Flash Lite 3 support which Nokia E61i does not have but hope Nokia will soon add Flash lite 3 in new firmware version. I am quite satisfy with Nokia E61i and wait for new firmware version with addition Flash Lite 3. My second choice is Nokia E90i
Can Nokia Corp. have an ability to upgrade Symbian OS 9.1, Series 60 v3.0 UI to Symbian OS 9.1, Series 60 v3.1 UI? Can anyone help me how to install Flash Lite 3 in Nokia E61i?
