Why would u need a T9 dictionary when u have a full qwerty keyboard? The T9 is meant to facilitate faster typing in lieu of a full keyboard which this phone has. Its like you are asking for a bicycle ride from London to Moscow after you have just been given a LearJet!
For all those who whine about the E61i not having a radio please go to the nearest electronics shop and get a Hi-fi system!
The last time I checked this was called E61i PHONE! Not a radio or PC (whiners about editing documents/ppts). It is first and foremost a cell with other applications as technology is converging. The additional applications eat into battery performance then you d be moaning about that too!
When you but a product know that you are buying something that is not a JACK OF ALL TRADES! Besides if the companies made them so perfectly we would not change phones and they would soon be out of business in addition to that being a sign that their research and design dept is dormant.
So before u buy a phone and come to a forum like this to whine and gripe, ask your dealer, network etc about the pros and cons.
And when you are sharing your experiences do share the positives too!

Dear E61i users,
I love this phone and yes i spend a lot less time now in the office since i can virtually take all the files with me etc. Need some help, Since day one my phone hangs when either the other party i am calling is busy or when he/she rejects my calls. I check with firmware updator and its says i have the most update software. Can anybody help me here? Thank you so much.
I have both E90 and E61i. I am in love with both but I usualy work on E61i. I don't why but I find it more easy and handy to use. Typing is also awesome.
I have decided to keep E61i and leave my E90.
how can you say such lies . Tell me a manufacturer who produces microSD 7gb ? And by the way . Where i can 4 gb micro sd cards in holland/france/belgium/germany that work on this phone without lag.
Quick answer please !
Thank you in advance
when is its software gonna get upgraded from 1.0 to 2.0. yahoo go ask for that sw version for its installation.
Can e61i open large Word doc like 40-50 pages? I haf company reports that long. Or does it take a long time to open or will it hang? Anyone try that? Can it open 3GP video files? Do video files hang or lag? Anyone experience that? Thx
The phone e61i is one of the best sellers according me as it has got all the best.being a business man it does half of my jobs.in short its a business ready phone plus home as it has
a memory card slot,downloads are possible and the main thing it has got a very good quality camera inbuilt.
I have a question, I'm not sure how the wlan on phones work. I have a wireless modem at home which is connected with my laptop. can i connect the e61i to my wireless network home or do i need to have internet from t-mobile? thanks
If yo ph=slow or hangs,go 2 todo list in menu,type 'speed'+ mark it 'highpriority'. Then type 'quokie'+ mark it 'low priorty'...then execute both,'speed' 1st. Repeat if nec.Yo ph should be +-30-40% faster..works 4 symbian 3v..we tried it on n80,n70,n73,n93,etc +it wrks..n61i seems best equipt presly of all buss phs,re displayresl+screensize, procssr,battlife,apps,..camr cud've been 3.2mpix+zm..+if it can take 4 > 8gig m/crd + gps dwnload..just as gud,+even betr than e90...
Thanks Raul. Sandisk produces 4GB memory cards compatible with E61i. To Sef: to my knowledge, you can use E61i with any email protocol. Like Raul said, check the coprehensive review on the same website.
Anybody can tell me if this phone can use for eMAIL. Like MS Outlook... or can be connected thru POP3 MAIL.
I think the maximum limit for memory card is 2 GB....wished 4 GB was available on this phone myself
can any body pls help whether it support 4gb memory card?
Thanks in advance
I have both the E90 & the E61i, and in terms of office application, they are both the same. They both have the same symbian S60v3 and both have QuickOffice V4.5.
With all honesty, i preffer the E61i than the E90 because of mere price, size and convenience, and believe it or not, i type easier with the E61i.
BUT, the E90 is a MUCH better phone and i still use it primarily over the E61i. I face no prblems at all with the E90, EVERYTHING functions and works just great with me...
Main Difference between E61i & E90:
- 3.2MP Cam (E90)
- GPS built-in (E90)
- BarCode (E90)
- Very fast Internet and full screen (E90)
The E61i has a good camera, is GPS capable and has a relatively good screen, so if that is enough for you, the E61i is a safe bet for you!
It's great. At first look, it was not that much attractive but now while using i feel rich in communicaiton and control.
Oh my God! Here we go again: Yes can view and edit Word and Excel documents. As for PowerPoint documents, you can view them but you cannot edit them.
can it previow windows word and power point files ?
please let me know
both has good office applications
i guess e90 would only be better for typing since its like a laptop. and you have to pay extra for the camera, GPS, etc and all stuffs in E90.
but if you dont need all those, E61i is good enough
Don't buy from e-buy-global.com !
It's strange that they got mobile phones 70% cheaper, e.g. 8600 Luna - $150. It's that odd, that it doesn't even cover production expenses...
So, my advice: don't even write to them. They aren't really from Italy! Their host is somewhere in Israel! It might aswell be some kid playing around behind his PC, and getting his money off our backs.
When I asked for their company's registration number, business rate, or something like that, the director replied to me they haven't got it for anybody. 'Cause that's something that has to be made public, so anyone may verify it.
I got a serious problem to choose whether the e61i or the e90 ryt now. what am I looking for is merely the office application...
But, even if I require the office ap. only, which is better? e90 or the e61i (in the office ap)?
or maybe both of them had a same level in the office ap?
oh please help me guys, please... help... (cough2)... -.-
