John, 06 Jun 2009hi all i have just bought original E66-1, but dissapoint me Soonly because of Keyboard li... moreIf the ambient light is bright the keypad back light disappears. It's supposed to do that. I don't think there's anyway you can switch this feature off.
Despite my previous comment on battery life I noticed something.
It lasts about 2 days with normal use if I'm somewhere really hot (like 30-35°C), and about 4 days if it's colder (15-20°C here now).
So don't keep it too close to your body or somewhere hot.
1. 1-3 long charges at first
2. after that just charge about half way through (if you have time)
3. full discharge and recharge every 2 weeks or so (if 2)
4. full discharge is when the sound notice plays (0-1 battery bar left), not when you can't turn the phone on again
i have just bought original E66-1, but dissapoint me Soonly
because of Keyboard light is disappear and comes after minutes my Question it's normal or setting problem plz tell me,
Thanks in advance
i have my E66 for 2 weeks loading gps signal more than 2 minutes
battery charger is not good for this phone
needs a 890 ma nokia travelers charger
unload 3g and vibration for best performance
let the phone run out of battery and then charge it
for one and a half hour or until it is full
the other charger did no good and went hot
battery lasts not more than 3 days but its worth it
you can charge it whenever you want with the old charger but with the new one better but slower
It's a shitty phone. The software crashed within 3 monthes of buying. It's been 2 months and the phone is still under repair

And you should also follow these instructions in order to get most out of your battery:
1. Charge your phone only when it has no charge at all or somewhere near that.
2. Charge it completely (till the battery is full). Do not take it off charging halfway through.
3. Empty the battery completely twice a week and charge the phone while it is off.
I get atleast 1 and a half days or 2 days by following these instructions and the others that i posted earlier.
I make about 3-5 calls ranging from 5-10 minutes.
Use WiFi for about half an hour with the charger plugged in.
I rarely use bluetooth.
Send around 20-15 SMSes.
ALSO! Check whether you have any resource eating app running in the background (press the home key for 3 seconds. Any unclosed app can also eat away your battery life.
My "notification light" (scroll light) keeps flashing even when there are no notifications, anyone know Why?
This may be contributiong to my low battery life, I have tried all the battery saving options, but no noticeable saving, maximum 24hrs at a push with little usage.
Zee, 29 May 2009So how much extra battery life did you manage to squeeze out switching these functions off?Well, right now I get around 1.5 to 2 days.
