I love this phone! It's very compact and very robust. This phone will give you more fun if you have a free WLAN access or internet flatrate.
- Email work best with this phone. I have an gmail account and sync the email with IMAP. Everytime I come home, the WLAN connects automatically and new mails can be read immediately.
- You can watch youtube with this phone!
- Sometimes the phone's web browser cannot handle complex web pages.
- No internal GPS receiver.
There has been rumours about an upcoming E71i which is an upgraded version of E61i with QWERTY keyboard and GPS. Anyone knows anything about it?
go to getjar.com and they have a free IM messanger for yahoo google and aim msn. and games for free. as far games get a nintendo emulador for symbian phones and works great on my e61i and you pay 15 bucks for the emulator and theres a trillion websites with free games like mario 1 and 3 punch out etc etc. and people complain about the slow browser get opera mini 4 and your phone its worth gold. opera work trillion times faster with wifi. people need to make research and stop been lazy free software dont come from the sky if you dont look for it so come on
Hi all! Kindly share your knowledge and information with us, who does not have much access to latest informations of the ever-happening world of cellphone!
To be honest, I cann't remove the upcoming nokia E71 liam from my mind. Have plans to grab it when it ll come to the stores, of course, after verifying users opinion on it.
Does anyone have any idea about it? Except that boygenius report on 4/5th january,08, I have not heard of it! If you knowledgable guys have any more information on its QUALITY and FEATURES and Price, please, please let us know! When it is coming to market?
These informations will help me to cherish on my next cellphone !
Thanks a lot to all in advance,
With regards to all,
I think you can go buy pop corn if you can't use Email functionality of this device.
It is the best cell phone that i ever have. the key to make it runs well is don't ever install any untrust software even from nokia mosh, or any other software support. To make it running well, U must let half of phone memory card empty, use no more than 2 giga external memory, charge it when it says baterai is low for the first time, always turn off the bluetooth devices, for transfering data much better if u use nokia pc suite, don't ever use card reader, or bluetooth for transfer data unless u confident enough to transfer it to ur trusty friend, never make unuse folder in it, just use the default folder, for wlan connection, never use connection that u doubt its secure, use one of the safest connection, for themes never add any themes from website's software applications but use only from original nokia website or u will find that u never can delete it cause ull not find it in app manager unless u reformat the external memory, install only one anti virus with update options work properly, (i suggested u use f-secure or net qin) and use automatic lock for ur security. if u need any information just email me, firstname.lastname@example.org.

For anyone thinking of buying the E61i, here's some useful information:
1. It is a sleek business phone for three good reasons:
(1)Full Qwerty keyboard (don't waste time making typos and correcting),
(2)Large screen but very slim and sleek (fits into pockets easily and looks smart with no unsightly bulge)
(3)Can browse, have push mail, chat, and maintain organizer.
Good (and FREE) software to use on the phone:
(1) Fring (for voice chat over google/msn/yahoo; www.fring.com)
(2) mig33 (for text chat over google/msn/yahoo; www.mig33.com)
(3) emoze (for push mail with gmail; www.emoze.com)
You can have all 3 programs running in background for a constant "LIVE" experience.
Bad things about the phone (but still not bad enough to change my mind about buying it):
1. It's a little too WIDE for comfort. Better to use a bluetooth headset for long voice calls.
2. Quickly runs out of memory when browsing large webpages.
3. Takes a *while* to restart.
4. WLAN can be tricky at times; but you'll get the hang of it if you're patient enough.
"For its price, the Nokia E61i is an extremely good bargain for business executives who like to spend time on their mobile devices for serious work as well as serious fun. It is what a business phone should look and feel like; and its performance is nothing below Nokia standard. However, for non-business users, it is NOT a good choice at all; After all! They don't call it an E-Series for nuthin!"
We are using this ph in our office. We can't seem to browse the Internet via WLAN it keeps defaulting to 3G.
We have managed to get the phone's email working via WLAN.
Anyone know how to set it up? Thanks.
I need help. Each time I try reading a website (even newspapers / mags on the web), I am told "memory full, close some applications". What do I need to close down? I hardly have any extra applications on my E61i. Yes, I do have a 1MB software installed for a push mail facility on my mobile set courtesy my network, which runs continually, but that shouldn't be coming in the way of using the web, should it?
Would someone please show how to come around tthis problem! I'd be very grateful! Please!!!
I am going to buy this phone next week. I wanted to ask is its video player quality good and is it full screen?
For those asking what software to get in order to have IM / Messenger.
(just google it)
Its been working great on mine
A lot of people have asked about the IM/Messenger functionalities of the E61i or what programs can be downloaded for use and I aint seen a response. Could someone who has an idea please respond?
I have had the E61i since July 07 and I love it to bits. Before it I changed phones every 3-5 months, now cant seem to find a good replacement but I d love to use more functionalities.
Thanks in advance

can Skype be unloaded on this phone? If yes, how can I do it
TKS in advance
2 smart_boy:well i guess gprs is not that important factor as data connection. i use wlan for the internet purpose which is kinda fast too. but if u r into gprs and using ur mobile as a modem to ur lapi then e51 acts much more good faster than e61i...as i have tested class 32 gprs in my lapi(5310)...
and about the camera....it takes very nice picture at good light condition(16M colors)....but at bad light(dimmed),it takes blurr images(absence of flash and autofocus).but i don't think that camera is that imortant to u.
best business phone by nokia (symbian) till date in my opinion is E90...
and if u r into windows mobile then u can wait for x1(SE.WM6.1)...or can go for TYTN(HTC.WM6).
The HTC shift can be called a complete laptop substition which is quite possible now a days as it is running on vista and 1 gigs of ram...sounds great but will cost heavily to ur pocket.
as i am nokia fan and had been using nokia from school itself(3310-1100-ngage-6600-N70-E61i)..thats why i am not into another brand and i don't how these phones perform which i have told u above(SE and HTC)...and if u r nokia fan too then go for E90>E61i>E51>E51(without cam).
