Customer Reviews:

  • confused
    The phone has a good look, but it keeps rejecting my sim card. The on button is difficult to press and can't figure out how to get mms to work....more info
  • You never go wrong with Symbian OS
    First of all, Symbian OS is very stable and user friendly. Phone is super fast, and after installing 100s of applications it is still fast. Phone is great for both your business and for your entertainment. Its Exchange email support is great, and you can also use your phone with blackberry servers. Office support, PDF reader, ZIP support, and blue tooth printer support is just what you need for your business. Phone comes with Flash player, RealPlayer and Music player. You can even watch your favorite youtube videos.

    This phone doesn't have full keyboard nor GPS receiver. If you need full keyboard you should go with e61, or e62. If you need GPS so desperately then E series is not for you. You should consider buying N series phone. I hate people who rates this phone 1 just because they say phone doesn't have qwerty keyboard. it is in the specs, this phone has no qwerty keyboard nor gps.

    This phone is not supported by AT&T. In my case 3G is not working. I know there are some people who can use their e51 with AT&T 3G but it is very spotty and most of the times you only get edge. me on the other hand never seen my phone working with 3G. ...more info
  • Good phone
    I'm been using this phone for like 6 month and I'm satisfied with the purchase. The call quality is good (and it comes with headset). S60 is easy to use. You can view PDF, word, ppt... but the quality is not that good. You can also synchronize your calendar/contacts/.. from outlook through the PC Suite software (download the latest version from their website, the one in the box is old) with bluetooth. If you use wifi then there's a lot of applications available: Gmail, Google Maps, IM... I dont really use it to surf web cuz the screen is too small and it isn't easy to use a keyborad to navigate, but the browser does display real html pages as you see on your PC.

    1. Screen not big enough
    2. When I received the phone I found there's slim gap around the thing that covers the camera len. After a while my len is covered with dust and there's no way to clean it. I don't use the camera anyway. But I think Nokia should pay more attention to details like this. ...more info

  • Great LITTLE phone
    I had this phone for a couple of weeks before returning. It was great while I used it, but the screen was smaller than I expected and to be truthful it was a little more of a phone than I needed. I got it for the Wi-Fi and used it a few times. But, I was not aware of the higher internet access cost of using a phone like this. If I was willing to pay for the higher PDA type account I might have kept the phone....more info
  • Bought this phone for use overseas
    So far I really like this phone. The simple shape and size are perfect and the buttons are large enough to dial a number easily. I bought this unlocked phone to use in Europe and New Zealand. As of today I have not been overseas so I can't recommend it for that use. I did buy an ATT SIM card in an ATT store and put it in the camera. ATT and T-mobile are the only carriers I am aware of that use GSM, which is the universal (everywhere but the USA) cellphone technology. So far it has worked good in the USA. I was also able to take my long standing ATT phone number SIM card, that I've have for several years and use it in this Nokia E51 phone. I tried my Tracfone SIM card but it would not accept the Tracfone SIM. I don't know if Tracfone uses GSM. I plan on purchasing a SIM card for the country I visiting IF I plan on making lots of calls, locally. For the occasional call back to home I will turn on International roaming with ATT and anyone can reach me on my regular USA phone number. Problem is the cost is about $2.00 per minute. OK if you can't be bothered with an overseas phone number and only need to talk to home a couple times, briefly. I want the ease of being able to be reached from my regular cell phone number and be able to switch the SIM card to use the phone locally but cheaply. I also like the built in MP3 Player, FM radio and bluetooth of the Nokia. I only gave 4 stars for now since I have not proven its ability to works overseas. If you just want an unlocked phone and GoPhone prices from ATT this is better than any of the locked phones ATT offers with their GoPhone plans....more info
  • good but firmware needs to be updated before use
    The firmware loaded on the phone is buggy and several features, including VOIP and the Download! application, simply fail to work. Nokia has a firmware update application (PC only) on their website, which solves these problems. The list of fixes is extensive, so I wouldn't bother configuring the phone before flashing the phone to the updated firmware. You can back up your settings to a memory card or a PC if you already configured it, then restore the settings after you flash to the new firmware. Otherwise a lovely little phone....more info
