is this phone really slow in 3g connection? please do agree or disagree with me. i am using this with smart sim card.. im from the philippines by the way... i have no problems with the phone except for 3g connection.. settings all fine and the area is good for 3g conenction... i have used a different phone for 3g and its doing ok.
hey guys, Im thinking about buying this phone or the n82. Im not very sure.
The most important is that i desire a large screen (minimum of 2.6 inch).
I know that the N82 has a smaller screen.
Can any of you advice me a good phone...(no htc)
I have had mine now for about three months, and messaging, which is my primary and cheapest form of communication (I'm a student), is now an absolute breeze!
Main problem for me is that the phone tends to be rather slow sometimes, I end up pressing the red button just to go back to the main menu again!
The other issue for me is that I have over 1300 images on my memory card, and unfortunately scrolling through them all isn't as easy as my previous N73 which had a brilliant album. So now I have had to name all my images and trace them that way. I mean, scrolling down from the top to image number 675 will take all day!
Last issue was the upgrade from the Nokia website - for some reason the Blackberry launcher placed on my memory card doesn't want to install, it spits out that problem everytime I restart my phone and slows me down tremendously, but last night I formatted my card, so problem fixed.
i brought this phone in the month of OCT 07 and it is working fine, i use it for a lot of stuff, like browsing,watching short movies extra and it is working fine i really love this phone...
I also have this phone and I have to say it's not slow...just cause the specs tell you a certain cpu speed, it doesnt mean its slow. The symbian platform is just amazing because its simple. I have friends taht use smartphones that run Windows Mobile OS, and they all have to reset their phone about once a week because it screws up. This is an amazing business phone, especially if you know how to use it. If you take the time to read the manual and listen to what people say on forums, you will get the maximum benefit. If you want msn, yahoo, or skype, you can download a program that lets you do use these...nimbuzz.com. And its totally free.
I do have a question for people though...are those who have this phone unable to open files that are from the MS Office? ie have the extra x at the end of the file name? If so is there anything to download to fix this?
i really like this phone i have not bought it yet can anyone tell me if this is a good choice to be made
i advice you to buy E61i because there are some features in this phone that is very important than the motoQ8 and Q9. P1i is a good phone, touchscreen and has a wifi also, but the screen is so small.
I had this phone (e61i) for a year now. I dropped it like 8 times already. I sleep with it beside me and usually woke up with it under my pillow. When I work and I work in a hospital where things can get chaotic, I put it in my breast pocket as a portable mp3 player to relax me. And i use it to watch Divx or 3gp formatted movies from time to time, usually porn stuff or wholesome ones.
It never let me down. The battery is freakin' awesome. Never experienced even once running out of power. The large 2.8" screen is simply glorious. I have downloaded a lot of pictures so I can browse it with this phone. You say it's large? It's only wide but it's surprisingly slim and sturdy. When you place it in your back pocket, it's practically invisible. When in the front pocket, it just looks like you have Ipod in your front pants.
Most of all, everytime i brought it out and fiddle with it in front of other people, they usually give this impression like you have a wierd phone or that you must be rich to own one.
It's not slow as long as you don't use the memory card to store all your messages. Use the phone's memory in storing your sms messages but use the memory card in storing your music and pictures.
'Till now, I still love this phone. The best phone I ever had. And I had a lot (n95, n82, 1100, k800i, w810i, n70, n73, n80, 5700 expressmusic -do i need to enumerate more?). I still own all these. But I never go out without my e61i. That's how much I like it.
I'm trying to connect the phone with the computer using the PC Suite but I can't. I'm using cable CA-53 but the probram can't recognize the phone. All the drivers and everything is installed but I don't know what is happenning. Can anyone help me with this?
i am not sure of this phone; however i wish to buy the same as i like the shape & purpose with internet usages , business features.
Tomas heres the answer to your question. You need to have BIS Blackberry Internet Service with Tmobile before you are able to receive emails onto your phone. So my recommendation is get the cheapest bis service with tmobile and than use your wifi where ever you are to download and read all your emails.
Just got one, awesome phone! Had the same problem, dropped phone once, this is where i got my replacement facet http://l8shop.net/products/Original-Nokia-E61-Front-Cover-Silver.aspx
It is not a slow machine.
i've had this phone for 8mos and it havent encountered any errors or hangs etc. Just store your pics, music, movies and applications on the memorycard.ü
Yes you may make video calls on this phone but unfortunately due to the lack of a camera infront your callers wont see you but instead they will see the view where you camera points so basically if you want your caller to see you just turn the camera around. Besides, its a business phone.ü
Yeh! tomas, I would like also to ask tio sby the same question just like you! How to make a video call by used the E61i. I am rather confuse on it..! Can anyother user out there share your tips, thanks in advance...!
People please tell me if i can change my phones body .....do we get spare cover to change as i dropped my phone on the street.
Maybe someone can help me out, I loved the 9300/9500 communicators for 2 reasons, the large qwerty keyboard and the fact that I could create text messages and have them sent out at a given time and date. In other words, I could create a text on monday and have it set up to send on tuesday at 11am. One of the great things about Symbian S80.
My question is, does the E61i do this?
Is there a program maybe for S60 that would allow for something like this to happen?
