you do realized that by not using the US version of the E70, you are losing out on half of the GSM network, which would improve your signal. You are missing the 850."
I wanted the phone as soon as it came out and now I'm suffering! Any suggestions on what I should do?
Has anyone use E70 for audio and video streaming successfully? How do you do it?
in which models of nokia i can have bluetooth NAP Services like available in SonyEricsson K510i
When first bought this phone ,i had to send it to authotized service and upgrade the soft.
I had the same problem with battery life ,every evening had to charge it.
I spoke with the guys from the service and they
tested the batery and reprogramed it.In word I cannot translate what they did ,but they explained me that the put a soch of electricity in the battery ....
When I got it back first charge 2 and half days .Now only 1 charghe goes for 2/half or 3 days .I am using it on wifi ,gprs ,photos ,etc.
So I sugest a soft upgrade ,and a battery test.
Any way ,the phone should work great after this upgrade.
Keep in touch
only bt 2.0 devices supports stereo over bt. If 1.2 can, great, currently E70 can't. sucks :(

Yes, the reception for this phone is not great. I live in NYC and have the asian version. Many times I'm in places where everyone else has reception and I don't. In addition many times the reception comes in and out for no reason. A couple of days ago I change the phone settings to gsm only and that seems to have helped a little...
Does the speed of the mini-sd matter much ? I did ask for a fast speed mini-sd...but the card only says "High speed" ?!?
Does that affect the open/close flip latency ? coz someone says it should less than a second, and I counted more than 1 second.
Using newest firmware on RM-10.
what do you mean that the battery life surprises you?
Does anyone get more than 2 days from 1 charge? maybe mine is faulty but I have to charge it every other evening.
New firmware for E70-2 (US)!!!
I'm happy to report that as of at least yesterday, new firmware is available for the E70-2. It's installed on my phone and working fine.
switch between portrait and landscape seems quicker, and it's possible the browser memory problem has been fixed, as i was able to sucessfully load the entire page of cnn.com w/o errors.
Guys,this phone rocks,the best business fone ever made.i bought mine 3 month ago ,every day amazes me with something new.the wifi,betery,etc.are great .u want regret it ,i am posting this from my phone,with my wifi.
I've been waiting for this phone to be released in Ireland since it was announced in Oct 05! I've got the trusty old 6310i and its serves me well but its a bit battered from being bounced around pavements etc ;-]
Based on the reviews I thought the E70 would solve all my problems and give me all extra the functions of a pda in my phone. I need office applications particularly but have held off getting a pda to wait for the E70.
I'm getting frustrated with the delay. The recent reviews show the E70 has serious bugs in using office applications and you'd need to be a programmer to get the phone to work properly. Then the indoor reception is poor.
I've no option now but to change soon - the on/off button on my 6310 broke in its last fall and I have to keep it charged because its almost impossible to get it restarted.
Should I wait for the E70 (they now say it will be out before Christmas!)or should I replace my 6310 with a newer model and a pda until all the bugs are sorted in the E70?
Sounds great and this will be far superior over existing 9300. But where to buy in Singapore, as I read with interest. Unfolded keyboard will be hanging in mid air, at least 1 half of keyboard. May not be able to use it like the 9300 with all fingers as it will topple, why qwerty then?
FYI, The US model (e70-2) does not come with a miniSD card at all.
So smartblond, you aren't missing anything.
harryc - Thank you!
Great idea, took me 5 minutes and it worked. Yes, it was the WIDCOMM (unsigned!) driver :)
The OS on the E70 looks and feels fine, I was using some 2003 Windows Mobile on HP PocketPC before and Symbian just beats it, it seems even faster(!) And now with Skype for Symbian coming soon... fantastic.
smartblond - Yes, your phone will work just fine without the card. However, I strongly recommend buying one - at least 1GB, to actually enjoy the phone's RICH features. The one from the box was only 64MB, I didn't even touch it :) I can sell it to you for 5 bucks :D, that's all it's worth.
So don't cry, go buy!
KZ - the reception is in fact a bit poorer then on my old 6310i, but that would not be the reason to get rid of it.
BTW, THAT was a classic Mercedes Benz of the mobiles.... :) Remember 7-days or more between charges?
I just bought this phone from buy.com and it was missing the mini SD card. Is it still possible to make this phone work or do I have to return it.
