Nokia E62 / E61
Awesome All-IN-ONE phone
This is one of the best all-around phone I have ever used. I have always been a fan of Nokia produts because of their quality and reliability. This is the first PDA style phone of theirs that I have used and I am extremely pleased!
-Excellent build quality
-Great audio quality
-Beautiful backlite keyboard
-E-mail Clients are awesome (Blackberry, Xpress mail, Goodlink etc.)
-Best web browser I have ever seen on a phone
-Huge colorful display
-Loud speakerphone/MP3 player
- No Camera
- A little bulky but well worth it
I recently brought the E62 from Cingular and I absolutely love it! It's a wonderful phone. I'm a big fan of web browsing , instant messaging , and text messaging so this phone is absolutely perfect for me. Some people make a big deal about the phone not having Wifi. I live in North Carolina and the city that I live in , there are only a few Wifi points such as Starbucks , Barnes and Nobles Bookstore , etc. I don't find myself in these places very often so the phone not having Wifi doesn't bother me as much as it may bother others.
The screen is absolutely gorgeous
There are tons of features
Call quality is nice
Speakerphone is loud
Full web browsing works wonderfully
No camera! I'm not a real big camera user anyway but the fact that this nice little device doesn't have a camera really urks me for some reason.
Overall , it's a nice phone. I highly recommend it.
Loved it when i owned it
i give it a 4.5 just straight because of the battery life, always was dying, but not that bad,
the phone was nokias blackberry, totally one of the best emailing devices compared to the 9500 by them I had once owned.
Sadly, the newer one is more expensive :(
I currently have the Samsung Intensity
Incredible phone/great price!
Three very small things that I dislike about this phone:
1) The inability to turn off the stupid "record" button on the left side - fire the engineer responsible for that oversight!
2) When a text message is received there is no "Message from: Craig" info, just tells you there is a message.
3) Phone menu performance is sluggish at times - very annoying!
Everything else about the phone is superb. Email support is perfect! Great screen size and resolution. GPS option, MP3 support, no useless camera, and the keyboard is a joy to use. I was planning on picking up a Blackberry curve (when the price drops) but I may just hand onto this baby for a while.
Great Phone Until It Died Suddenly
I really loved this phone. Simple and intuitive interface, great sound. I enjoyed the E62 for 14
months. It died suddenly. One morning the phone did not power up. I took it back to the store. The rep said a few negative things about the Symbian(?) operating system. Since it was out of warranty, the only choice I had was to purchase another phone, a Blackberry this time. I had been happy with Nokia until now, having used nothing but Nokia for the last 9 years.
This is a very good phone
Let's just say it sucks
I bought this phone thinking it would be good. Boy oh boy was I wrong. The phone sucked in every aspect. The only thing it is good for is using it as a hammer or batting practice. The menus suck, the keypad sucks, thw screen sucks, the whole thing sucks sucks sucks sucks. I wouldnt call 911 on this phone if I was bleeding out of my eye sockets. I would rather wrap it in duck tape and throw it into the bottom of the ocean, followed by a stick of dynamite to make sure I KILLED IT.
Yes, I am being harsh
CONS: DO YOU HAVE ALL YEAR
This is a great phone! I used it off and on throughout the summer with my T-Mobile SIM, although I'm now giving it to my sister on at&t.
>nice keyboard. Some people don't like the shape of the keys, but i think it's nice. I also prefer the joystick over a standard d-pad.
>solid, sturdy design. The back of it feels like it could survive a drop from the Taipei 101.
>S60. One of the easiest mobile operating systems out there.
>WIFI! Such a plus! I'd get this phone for that reason alone!
>Web browser isn't too shabby, either.
>call quality, though I did not call on it much, was good.
>odd shape, but not too bad.
>I wish it had a camera, but now there's the E61i.
I would recommend this phone for a mobile web surfer or a text addict. It's thin, it has a good keyboard, wifi, and a simple UI. There isn't much more that crowd could ask for in a phone.

iam looking for some gud phone without cam..
i have finally decided E61 & 9300i,so u guy help me out...i have buy it very soon....
The Nokia E62 is a great phone for people who need e-mail on the go. It definately isn't a blackberry but it sure does come close. I love the Symbian OS, I have had 4 previous smartphones before (all Windows Mobile 5.0) and none of the were document editing capable just viewing, if you wanted a document editor you would have had to get a Pocket PC which almost always comes with touchscreens, and I absolutely hate touch screen, so this this was a definate positive for me. The music player, the infared, bluetooth, the printing software, and etc. were definate pluses very good video and picture Quality. The Symbian OS runs sort of like Mac OS, similar interfaces. However the phone is freakishly slow, it has, I believe, a 230 Mhz processor, which is definately not enough, so multiple applications at once,..... Forget About It....!! So come on Nokia!! The U.S. version also does not come with wifi, this is a major, no no. So now I will sum it all up for you.
1) Mini USB port (E61 comes with pop port)
2) 2.5 mm dedicated Music Jack
3) Many connectivity options (infared, bluetooth, Modem, etc., all of which are amazingly quick to send files or pictures!)
4) Themes Changer (change themes easily)
5) Very Slim, and sleek (14mm in width)
6) Long Battery Life, so far (not sure, new phone so I really am not sure)
7) Comfortable Qwerty Keyboard
8) Awesome OS, attractive (Symbian OS 9.1, S60 3rd edition)
1) Slow (230 Mhz. Processor)
2) Joystick (really uncomfortable, E61i fixes this problem)
3) No integrated Wi-Fi :(
4) No 3G
5) Only Cingular offers this phone, and I believe cingular needs to be destroyed, horrible customer service!!
Overall: The goods definately outweigh the bad, however one can't help but forget the exclusion of Wi-Fi, the speed at which it processes information and the annoying joystick that I want to break!! Overall worth the $160 I paid from Ebay!
