I've been using the phone for 1.5 yrs...the joystick or '5-way scroll key' as Nokia so proudly calls is giving me quite a lot of problems...it only moves up smoothly doesn't move in any other direction smoothly my thumb and fingers have become bruised by it!!! Anyway to fix it????
I just had one purchased for a client who is blind & we had a hard time locating one as well.
We tried a few online retailers.
Yea there are some on ebay n theres a really good offer for Canada customers. check it out
I live in Toronto, and I just received mine from eBay last week. Right now, there are 5 auctions for E70s, and new ones appear all the time. Make sure you're looking at ebay.com, not ebay.ca.
phZJ, I've had my E70 for about a week, and it came used, so I don't know the age of my battery.
From a full charge, I clock in about 18 hours standby with wi-fi on + email checking every 5 minutes, plus 2 hours of talk time, plus 2 hours of heavy wi-fi usage before the low-battery indicator appears.
From the low battery indicator appearing, it takes about 20 minutes of talk-time until the phone shuts off.
If you can't charge the phone every night, then turning off background apps and wi-fi scanning will probably give you an extra day, although I haven't tested that.
So...this looks like an amazing phone--but where can I find one? I live in Canada and most of what I've heard implies that it's big overseas but near-impossible to locate here. Ebay doesn't even have a single one.
My phone is just over 1 year old. Battery life +/- 3 days, with about 7 calls a day, avg call time: around 3 minutes.
If your battry runs out too soon, press and hold menu button for more than 3 seconds to which apps are running.Ensure Bluetooth and infrared are switched off
No autolock keypad? Better try this. Go to tools>setting>security>phone and sim>autolock period. You can set to how many minutes before the keypad will lock.
hi everyone. Could you share your experencie aboutyour E70 battery capabilities? My E70 original battery drains in 24h. I bought new battery but its the same
tactile feedback is very good! i used 6800, i still use 6820 as secondary phone wich isn't as good as u also said... but e70 qwerty is very good! pity that i broke it minutes ago!
i wanted to do the firmware update on my e70 but the phone disconected itself during the proces... now it doesn't work no more... what do i do?
All hail DEV! Thanx bud u are a life saver and great help! Thank you so much!!!! You just saved my alot of money by helping me dial numbers without knowing it! Again thank u so much! Your a saint!
I have same question as David.
I had the 6800 and 6822. Yes there was difference. 6800 very good, nice clicks, feel good under thumbs. 6822 not so good, not good feel when clicked because it has very bad tactileness.
Does E70 have good feel when click buttons?
Please let me know. I want to buy but only if keys good and feel good.
i sorry for my english. it choppy but I learning.
I am currently using a Nokia 6120 classic but am looking for something with a qwerty keypad.
I thought of purchasing a Nokia E61 and the Nokia E90 but they are much too big.
I am now thinking about the E70 because it looks very nice. My question is, how is the tactile feedback of the qwerty keypad?
I use to have the Nokia 6800 and loved it. I only replaced it when the Nokia 6822 came out but surprisingly, I hated that one.
There was a very large difference in the two devices and immediately changed back to the 6800 until I bought the 6120 classic about 5 months ago.
I do not wish to repeat that mistake with the E70 and will be glad to read any messages about the qwerty keyboard.
Please let me know what you all think of it and it's tactile feedback.
You are seems to be over excited writing on some blog space, think twice & not in hurry,
I have been using this phone well before you bought it, the locking you mentioned is a manual locking only and not Autolock,
'Gogtjopper' has clearly asked for AUTO LOCK and no MANUAL LOCK, dont write nonsence without thinking.
The guy asking you $749 is ripping you off, the retail value of the phone is between $300 - $ 360.
The other guy, who is selling for $349, is selling for the right price, but you will not get any warranty from Nokia USA, if it is Chinese version.
Hope this helps!
Don't listen to DEV, because he doesn't know about Nokia E70. To lock you phone:
Press the 'left selection key'and then 'Asterisk' (Also known as Star Key or '*')
Do the same as above.
There is no Autokey pad locking software built-in inside Nokia OS.
You have to install Free Auto Keypad locking software after downloading from the net.
Search the net and you will get one.
Frankly phone is very good but Nokia made it very difficult to get the phone, then to get the spares and support.
