    I noticed it very much when installing new programs and dealing with settings such as Profiles.

    Tips and help to:

  3. How can you install new firmware?? NokiaUpdtaer does'nt detect my E65!!

  4. It did detect mine. It always does. Try going to Nokia PC Suite, Help --> Reinstall PC Suite Support on your phone. Continue on the phone. Maybe it helps.

  6. "Improved interoperability with BMW Bluetooth carkit"

    I don't see any improvement! Still can't access the addressbook through the BMW iDrive interface!

  7. This is a big bug with new firmware on E65. Before i installed the new firmware, my wifi connection working well. The browser, Fring, GMAIL are all well via WIFI.

    I have updated my E65 firmware to version 2.0633.65.01. There is a problem connecting fring & browser via wifi (It Fails to connect, not a chance at all). However, fring works fine when i connecting via 3G.

    WHat is the problem? Should it be the settings? Please advise.

  8. I think maybe there was an error in your updating the new firmware. Definitely not a firmware fault as my WIFI works fine after the update

  15. Just some responses to some readers..

    Markr - probably a faulty antenna or a faulty network. E would probably mean that there is no signal available.

    John Chin - you are probably installing the wrong type of software. You need to install Symbian 60 3rd Edition software.

  16. My phone has just had a problem where on calling & recieving call my voice cannot be heard by the other end. It isn't on mute and my microphone still works as voice recorder is ok. Any ideas??
