of course it failed.. if it doesn't fail it's not a nokia.

  • Fred

Huge disappointment. Loudspeaker bearly possible to hear, loud noise from speakers beacuse you have to set volume to max to hear anything.

Outdated menus, I am returning this. Thats my last Nokia ever, they always fail in some way.

So far as I know a lot Nokia E66 users report that they all have Camera problem when inserted a Sim card and connected to network. Camera will be very slow loading and camera image on screen is upside down. Once take out the Sim card, Camera go back to normal, loading very fast and no upside down problem. It might be firmware problem, hope Nokia will have some update soon.

I have no idea what happen to my Brand new NOkia E66 camera, the display for camera is upside down when my Sim card is inserted, but with sim card removed the camera back to normal. Anyone got same problem. Please help

  • Andrija

I bet the camera is as bad as on e65, just with more pixels.
Everything else seems great though, finally something to look forward to :)

  • Arcanires

I just got a E66, everything is so good. But the default setting of my camera is showing upside down, Someone please help me set it back to normal

  • Winura

Guys, I would like to know how good the build quality of this phone is. Can someone give a proper description about it? I would really appreciate if an actual user can be bothered to answer my question. thanks in advance.

VOIP - Voice over Internet Protocol ;)

  • Andy

I have a E65 and use the VoIP feature all the time. I only wish the WiFi signal strength was better. If I am not very close to the AP I get no reception. I also have an iPOD touch and it always gets much better reception. Is the WiFi reception better on the E66? Can anyone confirm this?

Dima, 10 Jul 2008This forum is useless. Nobody answer my question. I just wanted ... moreHi Dima, The speaker grill is at the rear bottom corner..you can see in picture.

I jsut bought my E66 few hours ago from Nokia Shop in Bangkok. It is great looking phone and it seems like Nokia has made few changes on menu which look great. I have already E51 but the New E66 look better and easier to use. Great Phone.

  • Micho

is $518 a fair price for this model because e71 cost $599 so do u think the price will go down or what? if yes what do u expect the fair price will be feedback please

H2O, 15 Jul 2008Nokia Websit said E66 with A-GPS only but gsmarena.com said with... morentroduction to Assisted-GPS (A-GPS)

The original meaning of A-GPS was different than today's

When the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 1996 ordered that cellular phone carriers had to route 911 calls to a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) with Automatic Location Identification (ALI), it recognized that, at that time, technology did not exist that could provide detailed caller-location information.

Handsets with a GPS receiver incorporated seemed excluded, because
- after launching a 911 emergency call it would take the receiver several minutes to establish a fix (cold start) and being able to output the callerís location co-ordinates
- GPS would have a very poor performance in too many situations (indoors, under dense foliage, in (urban) canyons, etc).
- a GPS receiver would drain too much power from the handset
- incorporating a GPS receiver in the handset would be far too expensive and too bulky.
Invention of A-GPS

Even before the 1996 FCC ruling about 911 emergency calls, Giovanni Vannucci of the Wireless Communication Research Department of Lucent Technologyís Bell Labs had begun thinking about the problem. He realized that it was possible to use GPS satellites to pinpoint wireless telephones making calls. Up till then GPS was considered unsuitable for wireless 911 applications (see Introduction).

Vannucci teamed up with Bob Richton of the Wireless Technology Laboratory to find a way to circumvent these problems. They came up with the W.A.G. (Wireless Assisted GPS) method, which makes use of a mobile phone with a scaled-down GPS receiver. The mobile receiver picks up signals from some of the GPS satellites that are simultaneously seen by a reference GPS receiver, connected to the wireless network.

The network sends GPS information it has picked up to the mobile handset, which uses this information to detect GPS signals from the satellites. The mobile handset then returns data about the signals it received to the network, where it is used to compute the handsetís location. Since the calculation of the exact position is done within the network, the handset doesnít need to be complex and expensive.
Hybrid Technology

Hybrid location technology combines A-GPS with other location positioning (see above) in a way that allows the strengths of one to compensate for the weaknesses of the other to provide a more reliable and robust location solution. Common hybrids are: A-FLT/A-GPS, E-OTD/A-GPS and Cell ID/A-GPS.

The most straight-forward implementation of Hybrid technology for GSM, GPRS and UMTS networks is to combine A-GPS with Cell ID. This improves yield in areas where A-GPS cannot produce position information and provides the accuracy of A-GPS in all other cases. A-GPS coverage and accuracy is typically excellent just about anywhere a subscriber can go, degrading only deep inside buildings or in dense urban areas where Cell ID may still be able to produce a position.

Typically, these are areas where cell density is high, so Cell ID will be at the more desirable end of its accuracy range, though it will not be as accurate as A-GPS.

A-GPS requires precise time to perform satellite signal processing. It can utilize precise time from a synchronized network (which provides optimized TTFF and sensitivity), or derive it on either a synchronized or an asynchronous network from aiding data received from the Location Server. A-GPS operates on any air interface network, synchronized or not, without requiring any costly equipment to derive time, and will operate with enhanced efficiency and performance on precisely synchronized networks.

VoIP free phonecalls, 14 Jul 2008Can I make phonecalls to a mobile free? I have VoIP in my office... moreyou can make free calls but your company must be paying for that....
by the way its rather cheaper call than any other phone calls.

This features enables you to make cheap internet calls...either using wifi internet access point or GPRS/EDGE/HSDPA.
