I'm surprised - it was quite well received a few years ago.

Not the latest version of their OS (its only S60 2nd Edition) but perfectly usable - screen doesn't compare well with more current models (half the resolution) but it has a decent 2MP camera and more onboard memory than most Symbian phones. It has 3G support and a decent music player that can support showing Album Covers if you tweak the ID3 headers. Takes up to 1GB RS-MMC cards without issue (some of the 2GB onces can be problematic).

Its slower to start up than an S40 device would be but not bad for a smartphone.

It has bluetooth V2 but lacks WiFi and Infrared if that is an issue for you.

I'm very happy with mine - this looks like a very fair price for a smartphone.

Rep added and voted hot.

I had this phone for about 6 months and it's terrible. The buttons are horribly small and when texting I would quite often hit the cancel button and I would have to start the text again. I've got a few friends that had this phone and said exactly the same thing, they couldn't wait untill their contract ran out to get a new one.

Excellent phone for the price .. voted hot

I know this is a really dumb question but how do you get to the battery and SIM card? My instructions state "Swing open the SIM card holder etc" but how do you remove the silver cover?

Also my memory card sticks out of the side too far to close it's cover. Is there a knack to it?

To access the battery, flip the phone over, hold it with the pop-port facing up, push the little recessed button below the slider for the camera and push up - slider and the cover below it should slip off - you can lever gently against the pop-port if its a bit tricky to shift. The battery then just pops out and there's a little silver metal cover that flips over to give access to the SIM.

If your memory card is sticking too far out of the cover for it to close, are you sure its an RS-MMC? If it is, have you unclipped the adapter that allows it to fit in a full-size MMC slot?

The side cover will close if you use the card in its "small" configuration (inserted with the contacts facing up and the "corner notch" towards the phone) but a full size MMC or a card with an adapter fitted will stick too far out of the slot.

Turn the memory card over

To deal with the memory card first, THANK YOU! It certainly worked OK when I put it in the right way (I was trying upside down).

I still can't remove the cover though. With the cover slid to the top, I pushed the black button (at the other end of the back) and held it in . I then slid the cover down as far as the button with my finger on it would allow but I still can't get it off (wailing in the background). What am I doing wrong? Lord knows I'm not a bad person. I do my best in life. I help little old ladies to cross the road. I even stand the occasional round of drinks. I don't deserve all these problems. All this stress can't be good for me. I just want to use my phone.............:cry:

Try having the phone upside-down - the cover comes off much more easily if you are pushing up towards the connector at the same time you have the little button pushed in with your thumb... (also your fingers naturally curve across below the bottom of the keypad which gives you more leverage)

I agree - its an awful phone - I had to endure it for 18 months- it looks like its made of metal but most of it is actually plastic and the coating started to come off within months, and it looked really naff for about a year!

Also its incredibily slow, from pressing the "on" button to it being ready to make a call is about 30-35 seconds- not good if you are in a hurry

Why would I ever turn it off you might ask - because the battery life is also rubbish - needs recharging every 2 days.

And - it crashes loads.

Also its full of digital right management controls- you can't forward much stuff on to your friends.

I just replaced it for a Sony Ericsson K800i - similar features but does everything faster and has less DRM restrictions.

I would avoid the N70 at all costs.
#19
Sorry, but I'm still stuck. Should I continue to slide the cover in the direction of the arrow, or do I need to lift it? In either case, doesn't my thumb thats holding the button down get in the way?

Keep the camera cover closed.

Slide the piece below the camera cover upwards as indicated by your arrow, pushing against this part of the cover and on the button with your thumb (try to keep your fingers tight against the front of the phone and push up with the thumb) - this is the easiest way I've found to do it on mine!
#21
Yay, I did it! Many thanks and Rep added to both Misterel and Sockpuppetuk.
#22
Yep. Its always harder to do when the phone is new, but it will losen off a bit over time, mine has :)
#23
I'm tempted by this as an upgrade to my 6630... but would I notice the difference?
#24

I think it depends what you are looking for in a phone - if you are used to a decent Series 40 "dumbphone", its going to seem a bit slow, especially at startup and you may find you don't need the ability to run Symbian apps.

If you want to run something more complicated such as SatNav (only up to TomTom Mobile 5), games that aren't only Java based, alternative media players, PDF and Office file viewers etc then having what amounts to a small, simple computer seems more attractive (the startup time maybe slower than a dumbphone, but is nothing like the same ballpark as Windows or even Linux).

[FONT="Book Antiqua"][SIZE="3"][COLOR="Purple"]have the phone for 5 months. camera started to wear off. it turns of in the middle of taking pictures or freezes or does whatever. the battery needs charging every 1.5-2 days. sometimes it's really slow. but it's not too bad. better than some older ones :giggle:
thinking of changing. but the sound is good. always take it to the shower to listen to the radio... and installed oxford dictionary is helpful :) not tooooooo bad :thumbsup: [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
