Unless they fixed the stupid sms messaging i would not recommend the phone, unless of course you don't text. Don't get me wrong i absolutely think its one of the best fully qwerty business style phones out there, but the problem with the text messaging is just too major to overlook, c'mon nokia get real. I had an E61 and the text messaging just slowed down after awhile, formatting, restarting and clearing the message boxes did not help the situation and i've read in many forums that the problem is still present in the E61i and that the nokia sms accelerator does not solve the problem. Anyone got rid of the sms problem yet?
I disagree. If you have video call feature in the phone, then it should be proper and usable!
I don't use it though, so i don't care.
If you flip the phone around to use the 2MP cam for the video call you can additionally place a mirror near the screen so that you can see the caller as well as the caller seeing you. Mind you it would have been easier if Nokia had made the usual two cams available. I guess they felt that business people rarely make video calls!
Does anyone know af a GPS-datalogger? Right now I use Nikia Sports Tracker which allows me to enerate a KML-file so I can see my route in Google Earth. But I would like a program that's stricktly about the GPS-data. And maybe, if possible, usable while using Tomtom.
I have the phone for just over a week and I am in love with it, I had the 6680 before I got the E61i.
Must admit the OS is so much better, faster more responsive.
Anyone looking for a smart phone this is most certainly a stunning phone.
The best bit been able to get on my WLAN and use DSL on my phone, awsome
I've had the E61 literally since the day it came out until now.. looking into getting the E61i simply because i cant use any other sort of phone now.. I just thought i'd give it a few months see what people think about it.. so? should i do the swap?
Sam, so how am i supposed to use the video call feature of my phone?
Raul and all, there is no Flash Lite 3 for Symbian. There is for Windows though.
Miko, you cannot watch regular YouTube on your phone (yet).
Rhei, your phone does not have a front-facing camera! No wonder your friend sees whatever is caught from the other end of the phone!
The chrome on the d pad does not peel off, but with time it gets scratched (with one's fingernails) revealing an unsightly golden yellow color. You wait and see tengborleng :)
I'm waiting for my phone which is five months old to wear a bit more before buying a new housing.
I like this phone although my friends kid me that it can be mistaken for a coaster. I have a question, though. I tried using the video call feature but it seems that my friend on the other line could not see me. He said he could see whatever is caught from the other end of the phone. I could see him perfectly though. Can anyone help me with this video call feature? Thanks
the chrome on the d pad doesnt peel off!! really cool phone.. must have =)
