If you want Extended Battery, DO NOT USE Nokia. 4hours battery life in most of their phones, but 8 if you have Wifi, bluetooth, 3G etc etc turned off!! WHY BOTHER???
At least these designers have learnt that with Slide phones, you need space between the 1,2,3 keys and the bottom of the slide. Oh well, dont rush, one step at a time Nokia!!

Miguel, 01 Aug 2008It's just great it has got so many features; it's not only a phone, but you can also use it as... morekool kool,sounding good so far,hope it doesnt give any probs in tha future...think i deffinately gonna get it...
jj, 31 Jul 2008hey tell mi how tha e66 works out for yah....i feel im gona get maself now..thanx 4 referin tha siteIt's just great it has got so many features; it's not only a phone, but you can also use it as a navigation device, as an MP3 player, a means to check and send e-mail, browse the Internet, use it as a USB stick, take pictures and record little movies. And that in a nice, rather slim design. Battery life is halfway after a day playing with it, so well yes I'd prefer it do better, but well, it suffices. It's a real gadget. If you're someone who wants all those possibilities, but won't be Interneting all the time (will probably not even take a mobile Internet subscription, but rather only go online when you can use the free Wifi function), then I'm sure you won't regret the purchase.
Concerning all the boo stories;
- Reception is just perfect
- Battery life indeed isn't the best ever, but it suffices
- Sound is just fine as well, and when you put it 'on speakers' it can -imo- go far from 'not loud enough'. However, when just making a phone call, I can imagine some people would prefer the sound to be a bit louder.
Miguel, 31 Jul 2008Received my E66 today and gotta say I'm loving it so far!hey tell mi how tha e66 works out for yah....i feel im gona get maself now..thanx 4 referin tha site
im not a big fan of nokia, but strangely, i think this phone might change my mind, its quite nice and looks a bit sturdy!
i really like it in the white with the silver!
I have switch from Nokia to SE in 2004. It seems to be the best thing Ive done, compared to the OPINIONS posted here (and most of) regarding Nokia phones.
Also, it seems Nokia is making 10 billion phone models - just they all have the same function and looks pretty much the same.
If Nokia is the last remaining phone on this planet, I will rather go back to use smoke signals....
dml, 31 Jul 2008Just got the phone from a wholesaler here in New York. Gotta say that I am amazed with this ph... moreTO DML.
Your not getting a GPS signal how come?
Are you trying to get the signal indoor or outdoor.
build quality is NOT good. After using this phone for a week, the spring on the slider seems to have been broken. now when i slide the phone open it doesn't stay open as there is nothing holding it in place. Also camera is upside down and the phone automatically shuts off. DO NOT BUY
how's the chance, that the e66 gets a 1500mAh battery, like the e71? isn't it weird, that altough both mobiles are technically the same (except the keypad), the battery is different?
Anyone knows if the battery heats up quickly in a continuous call? I used to have a 6500 slide and it heated up like a hot pad within 10 min.
Just got the phone from a wholesaler here in New York. Gotta say that I am amazed with this phone. Only problems are that the camera is upside down and I cant seem to get a gps signal at all
So far I'm using this phone,great performance,good receptiont while 2G,3G,Wifi. No prblm untill today. I bought this phone RM1995 ori set...
Bo, 30 Jul 2008Looks like Motorola Z6Seriously, in what way does the E66 look like the motorola Z6 apart from the fact it are both slider phones?
Have purchased this phone in the UK from play.com at £299 unconnected, seems like the best price and avaliabilty right now! Switching from SE P1i.
Build quality is superb! (compared to other current Nokias).
No problems with Wifi or Camera reported by other users?? within last 48hrs.
Battery performance not great but much better with 3G and wifi switched off when not required.
Also no issues with call/reception quality or max ring/alarm volume.
So far very impressed with:-
Calendar,GPS, Synch options, mass of pre-installed software,
Less impressed with:-
Not much! New OS takes time to figure out, battery could be better.
A great phone so far, dont be put off giving it a try!!
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2008I am about to spend a lot of money buying the E66. The most important thing for my business is... moreHi Anonymous,
I had exactly the same feel after reading all these comments; I had my mind set on an E66 (and was really excited) but then started to doubt after reading this stuff. Anyway, I just made the order yesterday and should be receiving the phone tomorrow.
I read the review on http://www.smape.com/en/reviews/nokia/Nokia_E66-rev.html which was so positive (though this website does write good reviews) that I decided buying the phone couldn't be a bad decision. I think as long as you aren't browsing the Internet and using GPS all the time, battery life won't be too bad. And I think the reception will be not be the best Nokia phones come with, but since Nokia phones generally come with really great reception, that doesn't mean the E66 reception is bad.
