Thanks to all of you through this forum for your input on Nokia E61. It seems to be the perfect phone for me, but here's the prob... Can a phone novice such as me purchase this phone on the web and complete all required set-ups? Who can I call if I run into problems? What is an "unlocked" phone? Cingular does not offer this phone yet, but I need to stay with them. A dealer has indicated I can just insert my SIM card and it will work. Is it that easy? A local dealer has received a phone for me, but has not delivered due to problems "completing the downloads". If they cannot, what makes me think I can? Thank you all for your feedback. dwr317
Sure, why not. If you put your SIM card in from your current GSM phone or buy one from a GSM carrier - it will immediately work like a phone. As afr as using all of the other goodies, why not read the forum and gradually assimilate one feature a week. I never ask anyone a question, and I hate to have people holding my hand as well as holding someone else's. I just read the forums and if there is something that doesnt work - I skip it and come back to it later. With the instruction book, patience and some research over a 2 - 3 monthperiod you wont be a novice. I find I know more than the phone company tech's do anyway after a while.
Hahah I think everyone knows more the the cingular reps theyre like out sourced mexicans no offense, but every time i call i feel like im back in mexico and no one has a clue what im talkin about.
