After 24 hours with Nokia E66 I returned to the dealer. The main reason: poor call qulity and loss of signal in a building that carries a GSM antenna of my carrier on the roof! (The shadow cone explanation does not work, my old 6233 works flawless in the verry same room!) Second thoughts: sound quality is inferior to 6233, (not as clear and not as loud), and ( IMHO) Symbian is a form of modern torture compared to windows mobile ! Any ideas about Nokia N82 signal and reception?
Karim, 24 Jul 2008I'm confused between E71 and E66. what are the major deferences other than the keyboard. The major difference between E66 and E71 is battery life. E 71 has seriously strong 1500 mah battery compare to E66
i should be taught all these tech vocabs, pardon my ignorance, but whats RDS? they always say it when referring to like FM radio function or somethin.
Really designed to impress specially the additonal features of flip phone face down to silence incoming calls and also the turn phone horizontally for landscape view.. terrific!
In what way is this phone an improvment to E51?
It doesn't support 850/2100 3G bands at the same time which enables you to get 3G in all continents and doesn't support blackberry connect either.
So it's just GPS which is kind of unneccessary with Google maps not to mention the added weight.

I've tested E66 vs E71. If you're using the headset both are about the same quality but if you're playing the music via the speaker I personally feel tat E71 music quality is better.
Nokia Website said E66 with A-GPS only but gsmarena.com said with GPS and A-GPS? which is correct one? please help...Thanks
VoIP free phonecalls, 14 Jul 2008Can I make phonecalls to a mobile free? I have VoIP in my office and home. So, if everyone has... moreTo make (or receive) a VoLP call, you must be connected to a WiFi access point. Some extra software may also be necessary in the AP. (to enhance Quality of Service)

Slider of the E66 is smooth jus like the one in 8800 arte, jus dat e66 is much define n of cos feature packed.
battery lifespan is pretty good, i can use this phone without charging plus usage, 2 days.
GPS is free for 3mths and a full license for guide of ur choice. ive yet to try my gps, will give comment after using it.
E71 n e66 is using the same platform of symbian OS and hardware.
E71 comes with Email word correction aka spell check in-built, Qwerty keyboard, able to edit documents in phone n a 2.3inch screen.
E66 supports screen rotate, turn to full screen view for images, tap to silent or turn over to silent calls, not able to edit documents in phone n a 2.4inch screen.
Camera wise, do not expect too much, jus take photos for fun will do. viewing from screen is much clearer than to view it from the PC. :)
the sound system for both the phone is the same, i find it nt as loud as my N95 8GB or 6110 Navigator. 6110 Navi, so far, is the loudest nokia phone, follow by N95/8Gb.
i must say that this phone is target on slick n neat rather than loud n bulky. this is how business phone should be, slick n neat. people dun wana carry too bulky things during business trip. they would love to travel lite.:) laptop not more than 5kg, phone nt bulky yet functionable n luggage as lite as possible. :)
personally ive tried E90 communicator, it serve its purpose well. except for one thing, it weigh my pocket down. other than dat, this phone is perfect for its class. :) full keyboard n 4inch screen. wat more can u ask more of a downsized communicator as compared to it's predecessors 9110, 9300i n 9500? smile if u agree. :)

Today i played with E66 , the menu is verry beautyfull (resembles the old Symbian S60 V 6.0, kinda nostalgic) , the phone has an accelerometer , like n82 , the camera is tipical for the E Serie (medium level), the finish is great , but prone to scrtaches .
My E66's camera / video record image is upside down! Is there a software update to fix this serious problem with E66.
