Hey guys... This is addressed to e72 owners out there.
Have you updated your firmware?
If you did, did you loose any data or apps?
I'm considering to buy this phone. I just want to know that if I update the firmware, will the "Quick Office" (that is licensed so that you can also create documents)still be there? Will all the other apps that the phone came with be saved? Will the contacts, messages and calendar notes be saved? Thanks.
Murali, 04 Jan 2010********** Potential Buyer Read This *************** Just bought an E72.Terribly disappointed... moreu could had taken other phone i tell u e72 is a classy model which is unmatchable to any business phones...
Bought E72 a week before...
Its a mindblowing piece of techno...
I never bought a Nokia earlier coz of my conception regarding nokia phones r slow n buggy...
But believe me this phone is the worthy successor of E71...
very zippy and a very fast processor...I can run around 6apps. at a time...and thats cool...
Its battery backup is rilly commendable...
Camera and sound are as expected OK...its more than enough, for what else a business phone can fetch into multimedia facilities...
Build quality is too good...
It feels so royal to hold this beauty in My hand...
Im rilly very impressed for what I got by spending a handsome amount of money...
Thanks to the Gsmarena.com team for the review dat turned me from N97mimi way to E72...;)
anyone have any idea how silent the camera shutter?it seems like there's no silent tone for the shutter...
Email software in E72 did not automatic synchronize with the server. I have to connect and synchro manually. Timed synchro also did not work. I set to synchro every 10 minutes but it doesnt work.
I tried to download and install email software from email.nokia.com but it said, latest version of email software has already installed in E72.
I wonder why geo tag was not a part of E72. I guess with next firmware update nokia will include all the missing things in this device. Till then I have a small solution for Geo tagging feature. Refer my blog.
********** Potential Buyer Read This ***************
Just bought an E72.Terribly disappointed with the bugs. What were the nokia engineers thinking when the phone was cleared for release. Such simple stuff has been overlooked, that it is very shocking. Looks like they shipped the prototyes without testing the product.
1. The New Contacts - via long key press doesnt work,
2. Bluetooth does not work well, keeps dropping the connections,
3. sometimes pressing the spacebar freezes the phone and have to reboot,
4. Internet radio & podcasting which was there in e-71 & E-63 is not available,
5. The biggest deal breaker - the built in nokia messaging client is a step backwards and takes forever to render html mails, this feature worked beautifully in E71 & e-63.
6. 2nd Deal breaker - Non of the 3rd party navigation software works well on E72.
Mails to nokia and posts in their discussion forums hv not been answered till date.
Just google and you will find 1000s of posts about this. Most of it can be rectified via a firmware update. Still how did nokia drop the ball on this one. All the goodwill earned with E71 & E-63 will be lost if nokia doesnt act now. For future buyers, it would augur well to wait for a firmware update to deal with this bugs.
dee, 02 Jan 2010is this phone worth to buy...??? advice pleaseof course, by all mean great multimedia in E series
amar, 29 Dec 2009i did the same thing as u said, with menu and sw but my e72 goes far ahead from e71Hmm, that's funny you know, I rebooted the device, I even deleted all files entered by me into it's memory. Still, the problem persists. Maybe, I'll go to Nokia Care. Thanks anyway Amar. It's food for thought if you haven't faced the same problem.

Give me a reason. E72 - 600Mhz and an E71 - 369Mhz. Keep both phones on the table and press the menu button. Menu screen on E72 appears about 3 seconds later than E71. Why? For all the rave reviews, can someone in gsmarena actually do it as I said and tell us whether it's worth it to add in your review (if I'm right, I mean). Same frustration goes in launching any software in it.
guys plz help me ,,which mobile to choose : n97 or n97 mini or n900 or e72
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2009this phone till now no buy in egypt but some of customer is need to buy it thanks and i ne... moreYou can find it in mobile shop and el serag stores ...and may be in other places but i found it there and its price between 2500 and 2200 as i remember
I just got this phone yesterday. What made me buy this is because of the well written review I read on this site. Before buying this one i was thinking of so many other options. But in the end it all boils down to functionality (the classy/elegant look is just a big plus).
I got the silver one. It feels like I'm holding an Aston Martin in my palm. really cool. There are some few light leaks but nothing to worry about. The qwerty keyboard is really easy to use. The Optical Navi Key on the other hand could be better. Blackberry still wins it with the navigation key. I also like the installed office applications especially the quick office (which by the way can open docx & xlsx documents). The battery life is really great too.
The 5 megapixel camera is ok. nothing really spectacular about it. It's what I expect from nokia phones. They are well contrasted in outdoor shots with really good lighting, but when it comes to night shots & indoor shots (w/o proper lighting) even with the LED flash it still comes out grainy. But it's not a biggie. I didn't buy this phone for the camera feature. Id rather buy a cheap digital camera instead. Its just an add-on feature anyway.
Internet is good & fast, but it could be better if the navi key was more intuitive. The IM feature is really nice too. i downloaded for free in Nokia Ovi the Nimbuzz application and its better than the pre-installed chat application that comes with the phone.
Overall, the phone is a great catch. For the longest time i have been a Nokia hater. But quite frankly, the Nokia E72 really is a good bargain. Its not that expensive considering the loads of features that comes with it. And its always nice to have a great & classy designed phone.
DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE YET IF YOU NEED IT FOR MAIL EXCHANGE:
