Nokia E63 is good value for money so for all the people wanting to buy the phone and contemplating....dont THINK TWICE...JUST BUY!!!....For all those contemplating to buy the E71 instead think again...
E71 is a great phone but E63 is exactly identical in terms of functionality for about Rs7-8000/- less
For a layman
1. Camera is 2Mp compared to E71 (3Mp) however the camera quality is exactly the same. Anyweays the camera lens provided on both the models is pretty mediocare.
2. E71 has GPS while E63 supports A-GPS. E71 GPS functionalyt comes with only a 3 month subsciption after which you need to purchase a subscription which is expensive so your GPS is useless. However on the E63 you cvan use the google maps appl to show your location via cell site location and is accurate while moving as well
3. E71 is slimmer and has a metal body which gives it an elegant look compared to the E63 however flip side to it is that it contains the same weight battery thus because of the slimmer design the phone appears to be a little heavier than the E71. Also there are high chances the E71 might get hot while talking as the batter heat might transmit to the metal body. Remember metal is good conductor of heat
3. Because of the metal body the chances of it getting damaged on fall are far greater as metal is much brittle than a fiber body as in the E63. E63 is at around 12500 however the E71 is quotted at 19000....Please save money....and if you have unlimited money to splurge then might as well buy the I-Phone (3g or 3gS)or the Nokia N97
HI, The nokia E63 is a treat to have. I have popped an 8 GB card and the phone still manages to run fast.
This is for all the people who want to install all kinds of applications on the phone provided the applications are Symbian S60 3rd edition compatrible or JAR or JAD files
1. If you get error "Certficate Error" go to Installations Folder > Application manager > Options > Settings > Software Installation- change this to "ALL" from default signed only
2. If you get error "Certificate Expired" go to time and date settings and change the year to one year nehind. e.g if we are in 2009 then change it to 2008. Try installing it. If it does not work then back date the year one or 2 more times. If combinations from 2009- 2006 dont work...buddy you were never made to install that software/ theme
Aniruddha, 13 Aug 2009Hi guys.Got my E63 yesterday evening.Not as yet started using it with the SIM but am ompressed... moreHI,
This is a long procedure if you dont have the right set up. If u do then it should be done quickly.
If u were a Sony Ericcson user then you have installed the Sony PC Suite on your PC. There is a Sync option within that. When you sync your contacts they get stored in MS Outlook on your PC under the contacts option.
When you get your Nokia phone install the nokia PC suite- go to sync option- Advanced setting- Select update in both directions
Start the syncing.....Voila all your contacts from oputlook will get updated on your nokia. You can choose them=n to move the contacts to memory card on your E63
Leon, 12 Aug 2009What colour looks the best on this phone? I'm getting mine soon and cant decide on a colour.i think red color is best suited

So you want to hack into your school network. Please do not. It is illegal and can land you in trouble.
Jaiku and all other SW can find WiFi networks for you but they too do not believing in hacking passwords.
pensioner, 13 Aug 2009thankyou all u guys for all the info on the nokia e63!!i had to deside on nokia 2700,6303,supe... moreHello Pensioner,
Glad to meet you. So am I a pensioner. Going to be 63 in November. And if I can use and feel at home with an E71, I am sure you will be fine with your E63. And congrats for it and welcome to the E63 forum. What am I doing here? Well I owned a E63 sometime back but my som saw it and took it away. So I decided to go in for E71 as I wanted a GPS. But I still like E63. There is nothing difficult about it. All you have to do is to hold the phone in one hand and the User Guide in the other. Read the book and relate to the phone. An hour or two at the max is enough to start advising on this forum. Also, when you get it and it becomes operational, do contact us for downloading SW on your phone for additional facilities.
Mahesh, 13 Aug 2009Vinay, I'm using loop mobile's wap service.

Took me some time but when I woke up the file was on my phone. However, there is no SW, for mobiles, to my knowledge that can pause the download and can connect up later on. If you find some, do let us know.
Aniruddha, 13 Aug 2009Hi guys.Got my E63 yesterday evening.Not as yet started using it with the SIM but am ompressed... moreTry using MS Outlook as an intermediary. I dont say it will work but all phones do have some sort of backup link to Outlook. If not all fields of contacts at least most of them will be transferred.
Is there any way to resume downloading from the point it has interrepted like sony ericsson phones have such option or you can suggest any other operator which gives fast browsing & downloading speed with unlimited gprs plan on daily or monthly basis.
Vinay, I'm using loop mobile's wap service. The browsing speed is good though but i'm not able to download full song from songs.pk or you can say big size file. While downloading it shows 'unable to download'.
Hi guys.Got my E63 yesterday evening.Not as yet started using it with the SIM but am ompressed with whatever OFFLINE things i checked out.Just had one concern.How can i transfer my contacts from my SE W950 to this one?Please dont tell me to do it by cpoying it to the SIM and then ransferring it and copying it on the phone.I have a database of 750 contacts.My SIM wont support all of them.Please help......

Hi bought this phone, very cool. I'm new to this wifi arena so I went to wifi and scanned I found my school network but the admin doesn't want to give me the pre-shared key any software that can help me find it and connect via my school's wifi which is super fast. 1TB or so? Help appreciated (preferably a mobile S60 software) I know Joiku spot pls help
its a good phone, but a phone without GPS is quite incomplete, though other functions serves well.
many people want Nokia E63 without camera will be there E63 none camera ?
The blue looks the best to me....getting mine by the end of the week.cant wait
VinayT, 12 Aug 2009Akki, If you are so serious about buying it (you should) the go thru the reviews of this mode... moreI hav read the review dude .. was confused as it was written in the specs dat camera supports video calling .. thnx anyways ..
Akki, 12 Aug 2009@ VinayT
Kindly reply to my ques. Thank You in advance.Akki,
If you are so serious about buying it (you should) the go thru the reviews of this model. NO, there is nothing wrong with it, but I feel that before you spend your money you should know fully about it so that you know what to expect and what not. Revie is available on this very page, just below the pic of E63, saying "Nokia E63 review : E for Economy".

With a rear camera you can show yourself but cant see the called party. I suppose, as I have never tried it out due to lack of 3G everywhere.
