Reading thru about the backlight faulty, I find that it could be truly a software bug. When the button is pressed, the whole screen flickers and jumped from one menu to another and it also auto dial stange numbers and charaters. Beep sound is heard continuously. Anyone out there could assist to resolve this malfunction? Please advice. Thanks.
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2008You have to change your Handset body Panel other no option is there.do you know that there is no panel available for e90, i think u should go n check ur nokia dealer and sorry to tell you that it is not nokia 1200 or some sort of cheap mobiles whose panels are available in the down market or south hall streets .........................................
I had bought my E90 from Dubai about six months back, now the paint is going out.Is there any way i can repair it or does the company provide any assistance.
1.People this Communicator isnt for anyone so think twice before sending comments filled with criticism for size and weight...Nokia dont need to learn from anyone for making slim phones..we already have S40 phones and who wanna slim phone then buy S40 phone not an E90.
2.The E90 now has flat keyboard and it DONT touch the inner screen.
3.Battery dont last for more than 2 days...yes..what u want more than that??
4. Nokia 9500 has the S80 UI which has more advanced software but the S60 used on E90 allow more 3rd party software compatibility.
5.Next Communicator will run on S60 FP3 which is not launched till now as rumors said...btw the FP3 should have USB and touch screen.
best phone ever.. i can find whatever i want in it.. but its only problem is it some times goes slow with no reason.. but overall BEST PHONE
this is the best handphone in this world !!!
i have the red colour nokia e90...
it is perfect to me ^^
excellent phone , much faster than my previous E61i , gps with garmin soft rox , good quality my best one so far
had it for 3 days only..the thing is as heavy as brick,so big that i wasn't sure if i was holding cellphone or the mini laptop.Buttons on the keyboard are widely spread,so i was chasing my fingers all around..Nokia gotta follow Ericsson a little and make smaller and slimmer phones..
The E90 is a fantastic phone but has the following problems as i have now owned it almost 1 year.
1. paint peeling of cover
2. battery NOT lasting more then 2nd day
3. Back battery cover hard to remove
4. Keyboard touches screen inside causing damage(scrathing)
5. The earpiece is know to cause noise whilst on calls or trying to make calls (very annoying)
6. Hinges become loose at times
7. usaual software updates need doing
8. No FAX software
9. Phone hangs at time (not that often but at times)
Apart from that its a TOP PHONE!!!
NOKIA please look into these problems as your service centre dont care! no matter how many times phone goes in for repair they say it not a common problem, please read these comments on the forum, we all have same issues, I have had hands on experience as i have used communicators since 1996 and would not use anything else unless i have to !!
im using the E90 for more than a yr now, and i have no problems at all with it :S its performance is perfect, fast, never hangs up, no mic problems, no inner keyboard scratches on the screen... the only problem i have is that the D-pad's chrome is peeling off thats all. and its no big deal really, although for a high end phone these minor things should not happen.
if ur having problems with the S/W update it to the newest version (v. 300.34.84) / for hardware issues well u need to c what version u have of the E90. there are couple of versions (v10 / v11 / v12 / v13 / v14) the newest one is V14 (with no hardware problems at all). even though u have the old version u can replace the inner LCD for the newer version / Keypad Frame / and the keyboard.
hope this helps...
I used the 9500 3 years now I use e90 in 1 years. I can say that 9500 better than E90
Anonymous, 16 Oct 2008I am thinking about getting this phone but not sure. I would hate it if after a few weeks of ... moreNokia seems to announce a new communicator every 2 years or so. This thing was released last year so maybe you will hear something in 2009. I read that Nokia is probably going to wait to slap the new symbian OS version in the next one, so maybe not until then. I also read they are going to announce a qwerty-style slider reg phone soon too.
I am thinking about getting this phone but not sure.
I would hate it if after a few weeks of getting it a new version came out. any news on a replacement?
KEVIN, 11 Oct 2008can i know more bout this phone how bout the device ,sistem,any prb so far?Is it has video editor like N70 and N95
Yaar same problem i have "sim insert card" I have given to Nokia Care Centre under warranty!
Randomly the phone hangs all of a sudden & says insert sim card.. how to get rid of this problem? anybody please help
still same, 06 Oct 2008Nokia have never realised the basic flaws, it should remove them n next IME productions.
Fron... moreE90 has following flaws:
1. Cannot search by Company search.
2. Existing search in OFFICE very very slow.Search was still ON after 10 min in a Contact list of 3000 entries.
3. Nokia search can be installed. It is futher slower.It works on other phones wonderfully.
4. When you edit CONTACTS, & if you recieve an SMS, phone freezes. You have to remove battery to recover.
5. No Fax support. Only ThinPrint support.
6. Screen touches the keypad making scratches/impressions over a period of time.
I was suprised to see its ratings all above 8.0 I dont beleive it.
I will not get rid of this phone and put someone else into trouble. Instead will used my old phone and use E90 as toy for games.
