023.002 Firmware for E72

Yes, to my surprise today my Ovi Suite prompted me that I have a new software for my phone! Yes….and now I am updating it as I write this blog.

This is my second attempt actually. The network is slow.

However when I checked the update using Nokia Software Updater via Nokia PC Suite, there is still no update for my phone. Only when using Ovi Suite I have the option to download it.

Update: Able to download the FW but failed to install into the phone. The phone keep on disconnecting & crashed. Too busy to find the solution.

E72: After 5 days

It is a poorly built phone!!

If I type fast, some character will be missed. I need to go back & enter the character. It was not there with E71. Some users reported the problem only limited with the keys on the numpad.

As mentioned in my previous post, E71 has a solid built. Not E72. The battery cover is loose. The keyboard especially the bottom part near the mic is also loose.

I taped my phone with gaffer tape to stop the ‘moving’ cover.

Bugs are everywhere. Especially in multimedia department. The gallery is slow, super slow & RealPlayer crashed many times & even reset my phone.

I wanna repair the loose part & tried to send it to Zitron (the distributor in Malaysia) & to my amazement, I can only send it during office hours where else those AP sets can be repaired even during weekends. So guys, instead of buying Zitron sets, just buy CSL or any AP sets. The warranty is longer & the repair is easy. The best part is, it is cheaper!

Many feel that the phone is disappointing. Me too. The E71 is a great phone. I bought the same phone again after I lost one in Medina in Dec 2008. So finally, after all these frustrations, should I keep my E72? Unfortunately the answer is YES. Because I still hope especially the ‘miss-character syndrome when typing’ will be gone with the new firmware. So Nokia please release the best firmware for this potentially great smartphone.

E71 yet another new firmware

It’s version 300.21.012 and I have updated mine. So far so good. You can download via your Garmin PC Suite or from here. But I did mine using the automatic procedure. Need to install the apps one by one.
