Its been 6 days since I have started using this phone 3 times the phone has visited nokia care center. In my first 2 visits I was told that the handset had a software problem as a virus would have got downloaded errorenously. I my todays visit I was told that the memory card has a defect. I the last 6 days I have started using the phone I have not been able to make out going calls by using the phone book. The software has got formattted twice and the problem still continues. The Care center has asked that they would review my case and get back after 15-20 days.Its been a very disappointing experience buying this phone as not only the handset but also The Nokia Call centre network and their Nokia Care outlets are a big let down.
I'll try to reclaim my Nokia E66 and try to get another phone. I don't want to bother about battery life each time I'll make a longer phonecall.
I bought this phone a month ago, but battery life is too poor, lasts a miximum of 36 hours.
why GSM areana no say nothing in their review about a bad Battery Life??
previosly i mentioned they battery life only can 1-2 days... is refer to NO CALL and LESS THEN 5 SMS and NO LISTENING TO MUSIC, if u call for minutes/ an hour listen to mp3...die less then 6 hours.....
u want use such a hp???? i would say byebye... somemore is a BISSNESS class model....
i think the manufacturer very cruel that push the error product to amrket which they know have big error in it!
E66 battery life is succccccccck! it is nothing to do with the battery but rather the hardware/chip have problem unsolved, if u dont beliv u can buy a new original battery to test it! battery will out in less then 2 days.
another problem HP is samsung i550w , the same battery issue...
Just bought this phone for 2 weeks & already have problem. Each time i want use the camera, it says "Camera : Feature not supported". Already bring it to Nokia Care but the proble still occured & Nokia people at Nokia Care not giving any solutions....
i just got this unit last wednesday and feel sorry for buying this instead of e71...the battery is really bad only 2days maximum life without charging...sigh
leolim, 04 Dec 2008Nokia E66 looks wise is excellent...beautiful looks, but battery is very very weak..... If i ... moreThe Battery Life is too poor. I charge and when I traveld fron Asia to USA then by the time I get to USA after 20 hours flight It has no power to use it. I had two and sold both and change to N85 and N79. The N85 did not like build cheap. Kept the N79 but no happy with too small push bottoms. Battery is fair.
marie, 29 Nov 2008which colour is betr in e66, white or black? Black looks Better
Nokia E66 looks wise is excellent...beautiful looks, but battery is very very weak.....
If i charge my phone at nught by morning its 1bar down already....it hardly lasts for 5-6hours...
Will the new firmware improve battery-life? I have FW 102.07.81, but can't update the firmware yet, because I have an operator version for which updates aren't available yet.
There is already a new firmware. Upgrade your E66
through the Nokia Website.
I now own the E66 for almost 2 weeks. Though the phone looks pretty nice ans the specs are great, THIS IS A WARNING NOT TO BUY THIS PHONE: It is absolutely useless, because you have to charge it almost every day. The maximum time without recharge was 2.5 days, but in that period I left the phone almost untouched, maybe only 30 minutes phonecalls, 3 text messages, WLAN/3G switched off.
This is no MOBILE phone.
The battery can last 12 hours only.. nowadays still got such lousy phone... i charge it 10pm and stand by until morning already 1 bar gone.. reach office at 9am another bar gone.. anwser few sec call another bar gone... play some game for 1 hour.. then at night 8pm battery flat
E66 battery life is very poor. About 40% worse than E51. I really don't know what Nokia engineers were thinking of... Of course it's not a multimedia phone but even used as a simple phone for calls only E66 battery will barely last 2,5 days.
