I see you mention about the poor battery life of your Nokia E66. Are you aware that when a battery is new it needs about 4 or 5 charges to completely reach its potential operating levels. If you've just very recently purchased this handset, the problems you are experiencing with poor battery life are perfectly normal. You should find the battery life improves after a few more charges. Try to charge overnight with the handset off. This enables the handset to charge uninterrupted and to maximum capacity. Remember too that unlike Ni Cad or Nickel Metal Hydride batteries, Lithium batteries don't like to be completely drained to empty and have no memory effect. To ensure longetivity of your battery(s) ensure you recharge them before they drain too low - say 20% or "one bar" minimum. Nokia is an excellent manufacturer and the E66 looks to be an awesome handset. May it give you great enjoyment and may my input have helped alleviate any concerns you may have held.

What bussiness phone emails office docs which are avail on most nseries too. FP1 stil nothing special but made n china too esp metallic color. face lift awkward. must sell for 200$ by dec
It looks like my samsung E250...But Samsung is more original with their designs...
What a handset, one of the best ever from Nokia.
The only thing that lets it down, is the battery life, but I'm sure that's something that Nokia will resolve shortly.

Design of... moreI own this phone. conserning the battery life its ok but nothing phenominal as any phone, if you use it alot (wifi, camera etc) the battery drains pretty quickly. My only complaints about it are 1. the web browser (i was using an Iphone before so i got used to good standards). 2.the camera is complete rubbish
Yeah, i've read all your opinions & i'm still confused, so i wanna ask you should i buy E66 or N73
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2008This phone sound is very low, does any one know a well sound , well battery phonehhmm the sound of my E66 is loud. You might want to bring yours to Nokia center? Not sure what firmware you got.
E71's battery life is longer than E66. I'm using Internet Radio and WLAN connfection is always on, E71's battery lasted 3 days while E66 is 2 days.

E66 is far better than N70. I have N70, N73, 6288, E71 and E66 right now and I like E66 more than the other phones. Battery life is acceptable. You can change the settings of applications to avoid unnecessary battery usage. Yes, E66 got speaker phone also.

Though this phone has all the latest features but few problems like low battery life, quality of image taken by camera is poor compare to N73 as both are having 3.2 megapixel. Also the sound frequency emitting during call leaves disturbing impacts on mind. Any measures taken to improve the above constraints.
i agree with all the guys that it have a poor battery and not that beautiful sound...in the other hand its very usefull,pretty,easy to use...and most of all its vary handfull foe the business

That's how I did for my P1i to E66 and that's the only way to do it.... No other way so far as I know off...
