All the guys who want to buy this phone, may please note.
After using the phone for more than two months, I would advise, this phone for all other purposes other than "EMAILING".
EMAIL is a DISASTER in this handset. I have had my software re-installed by NOKIA. Even then it does not work correctly.
Also it is slower in opening larger excel files compared to E63. (processor speed/RAM all the specs we have been fighting on the forums are futile.)
Nokia is betraying a potential customer if it projects this device as the best for emailing.
E63/E71 with nokia messaging service is FAR FAR better than E72.
So go ahead buy the phone for fancy specs. ( Shame I did the same thing).
I brought this phone about 2 months ago and the experience has been simply amazing.... Its been working superbly and very rigid phone as i ve dropped it twice and its working without any problems.

su-e72, 14 Feb 2010GPS is working nicely in UAE with E72su-e72,
My GPS has not worked even once. I live in Chennai, not a remote location. Is it that I have missed something while configuring the GPS.
Can you think of anything liable to be missed.
Rajesh, 13 Feb 2010I agree with you about the built quality and firmware issues. But my unit however works flawle... moreplease give me the settings because it never sends receives emails w/o a subscribed plan - i mean the send receive protocols. post them so i can put them in instead of once it configures when you use the wizard.

I've used the nokia e71 for the past 18 months and was happy. Monday I'll be getting the e72 and I can't wait. Why pay more money for Blackberry data plan? Just tell your carrier you want unlimited internet on an old model phone. Everybody has BB so be different!
I am using E72 for a few days now, am facing problems after problems. Try menu/Ctrl.panel/connectivity/conn.mgr and see whether the title is coming properly. I see this problem with many models. Also the phone is showing switched off once you start wlan or bloothooth syncor even when connecting to blue tooth car kit. Lots of bugs needs to be fixed.

svv, 13 Feb 2010this is crap, gps works irresecpective of where you are...those folks @ univercell are dumbo..... moreYou are right.
In the meanwhile I am attempting to upgrade the firmware to the latest version. But can not connect to the PC. PC Suite does not even recognise the cable connection. I am at my wit's end.
Anyone else with similar issue?
