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.

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.
shall, 30 Nov 2008I like the looks of e66 than e71 but im bothered about the post regarding a bug in recording m... morethe e-66 that i have is stylish, but the problem is that i has a speaker problem and that irritates me a lot as much as it is light and fun to have.
Although i have incoming or outgoing calls from different areas of my contacts (mobile,office.home),
in the call list they all appear with the same sign
on the side(mobile sign).This is really bad because it
is important for my job to know exactly where do I
get the call from.
claire, 29 Nov 2008E66 User, Thanks for your kind reply. Now I prefer E71 and would have it this December 10.... moreI´m pretty sure it is not possible to assign any kind of ringtone to an "unknown caller", but what you could do is assign ringtone#1 to all contacts (manually of course) or assign ringtone to a group contact and set the default ringtone to ringtone#2. See what I mean? I know it is a lot of work...but I guess it´s the only way...
I like the looks of e66 than e71 but im bothered about the post regarding a bug in recording mode. Is it true on all e66 phones or one unlucky dude bought a defective phone?
