You keep reporting odd issues, that background-cursor effect is once again something I haven't seen on the E72 after 4 days of heavy usage (heven after HelloOx and lots of fishy installs). Something is wrong so I suggest you perform a full reset and also reformat your memory card. My firmware version is 021.024, custom version 021.024.C00.01 17-Oct-2009 but I think that is the only version available.
The cheapest I have found the E72 here in the Philippines is P19,400 (approx US$412) from Nokia dealer in Marquee mall, Pampanga, going to buy one today for my girlfriend.
sheriff, 01 Dec 2009ok a little more about nokia e72...i ll say randomly. about the light leak in other colours... moreThanks Sheriff for updates.. one question... how is the audio quality during calls without earphone?.. pls tell... thank you.
wow e series, 01 Dec 2009i have both e52 and e72, but base on my experience, e52 much better than e72.
Yes if e72 has ... moreHi,
In your opinion, it is the E52 or E72 that has louder maximum ringing volume?
Is the difference significant?
My major concern is whether the ringing volume can be heard in noisy environment.
Thanks in advance =)

@Spifo - You may think I am dumb and have not read the manual or something. But I have been using E61i and then later on E63 for my mails, for the past two and a half years. You may be right the unit might be messed up.
I bought this phone only for sake of a better e-mail client over my E63.
One more new thing. When I compose a mail then press options, the options open up. But I cant move the cursor on the different options. Instead the cursor moves in the background in the message body and the receipts. I cant send mails. It doesn't allow to press send. I tried with the D pad and optical navi function both.
KKK, 30 Nov 2009still more sadness.
It doesnt manually pull mails, if you put it on auto retrevail.
Meaning,... more3K Dude, your unit must be messed up. You select full body and get headers only? And mine checks email by itself on auto, every 10 minutes. I just let it sit and hear the sound of incoming emails.
I see dumb people. Who can't type. Or read; Especially instruction manuals.
I like the E71's build quality but people have to get over it and admit that the E72 is a step forward. I don't know about chassis build quality but other than that everything is better on the E72, there are many, many advantages. Worth upgrading and paying a lot? Probably not. Worth buying by someone who does not have a 71? You bet.
I've had one for 4 days and used it extensively (already hacked with HelloOx 2.3). It is a fine terminal, excellent build quality and I haven't had a single crash or reboot even after installing loads of stuff. Navi key works great and I love it, it just needs to be a bit faster, right now it's a bit for-dummies-only.
I have zero complaints so far... audio quality on calls is average only tho, definitely not better than my old tank 6630.. but it works ok.
It also feels fast, keyboard is excellent, audio quality with audiophile headphones is impressive. Only thing missing is an FM transmitter and 30 fps video recording (shame, it has the memory and cpu to do it)
ok a little more about nokia e72...i ll say randomly.
about the light leak in other colours....i dunno abt it cause in bangalore as for now only black is available.
and the cost is rs.21830.
the audio output through the speaker is very very low ...which in turn makes the text to speech option useless. but i expect with a firmware upgrade..this will be improved.
the audio quality through headphones is impressive and satisfying.
the display is a big turn off. this is the only arera where blackberry thrashes e72.
and the much hyped navi key...is cool but still needs to be refined a lot. its not worth using everywhere and i turn it on and off frequently.
and the os is awesome and fp2 transitions are eye catchy.....these graphics increase ur hunger for a bigger screen and u curse nokia everytime for this.
and the sexiest feature is the battery and not much to say abt it.
and i felt that while plugging ur earphones in the jack...it was not smoothly done. did any one feel the same???
and the short cut buttons work fine.
the switching between modes takes about 8 seconds.
the flashlight takes another 6-7 to switch on.
camera ok...very very basic...nothing much to brag about...just better than e71...thats it.
the overall build quality is fantastic..and i did not face the problem of a shaky loose battery cover even after removing it an umpteen times.
ask any questions guys...i ll be more tah happy to help.
today i ll set an email account and keep uall posted.
i have both e52 and e72, but base on my experience, e52 much better than e72.
Yes if e72 has qwerty key but its too small key so too difficult to use it.
Antenna receiver at fm radio in e72 is not stable. All application feels so slower run than e52,
Not getting this at moment,,its no were near complete with complaints but e71 is much better more stable and better built..I am sticking with 5730,,n86 and 6630 for now..
KKK, 30 Nov 2009still more sadness. It doesnt manually pull mails, if you put it on auto retrevail. Meaning,... moreYou have to sign up to nokia messaging service to get your lifetime push email service, its feel like having a blackberry with bes, different is you'll get it free without monthly payment. Just go to email.nokia.com
Grow up people, we all scream for 600mhz processor, just like jesus phone 3gs. After one firmware upgrade, you will never regret buying this phone, dont be so outdated
one more thing, volume rock and power button is metal. Its feel very cold in my hand this morning
I am dispointed because Nokia Maps couldnt find satelites but Google maps can find. Backdoor in not good applied.
If you are gonna buy this phone.. you should think twice..too many software issues and bugs... i am going for E 71 after waiting this long.. it aint worth it..go read http://www.techgiraffe.com/nokia-e72-claim
Question to all the E72 owners does the light leakage is only a certian colours or all i would like feedback from all the ppl that have bought Black, Sliver, And Topaz do all of them leak light or just one colour....and to be honest i waited for this fone so long and i hear so many problems Nokia has let down in quality, price, and software wise i mean u guys r the biggest cell maker u already charged 500+ for this fone y could u makeit glass metal, Carl Zeises Lens Which does make a huge differnce, and better video recording the complaines have let me down and im very disappointed from them
ah..got my e72 at last ....dint disappoint me...screen is a big big turn off...and ya the key board at the left side is not properly aligned and hence light leakage..it looks as a manufacturing defect....battery is very very very good...fpt graphics are awesome...i have played with it for 4 hrs so am feeling sleepy....will be posting tomo morn...gud nite all.
KKK, 30 Nov 2009This is the worst e-mail client.
The worst that Nokia has ever given.
It only looks good, bu... morestill more sadness.
It doesnt manually pull mails, if you put it on auto retrevail.
Meaning, if you want to pull it in between or out of the retrevial hours, you just stare at the screen and nothing happens. To hell with the build and all. EMAIL IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS DAMN DEVICE.
E-72 has arrived in Bangalore on 30-Nov and I got a call from the Nokia Store. I pre-booked and paid an advance of Rs. 3000/-.(The one in Brigade Road.
But I purchased E-71 instead of E-72.!!!
When I went to take E-72, somehow, I did not like its look and feel compared to E-71. It did not look as rich as E-72. I pre-booked for a black hand-set.
The black is not actually complete black. The frame is in steel color. The back-plate is no complete black like in E-71. It is in steel color. I did not quite like the power and side volume control buttons. They should have been black plastic instead of silver color. Over-all I liked black-E71 a lot than E-72. So, bought the E-71
