Nokia E50faulty handset e50!


Ref: handset model - e50 (Purchased on 16th jan'07 from a local gurgaon (India) dealer " hot spot". Other details are-code: 0544637, imei: 351895/01/69764/4, fcc id: pdnrm-170, ic: 661r-rm170.

I had purchased the nokia handset e50 on 16th feb'07, after lot of comparison analysis. The problem with my handset is that it automatically goes to loudspeaker mode, when the call receiving button is pressed and gets hanged. This happens on approx. One call in every 10 calls received. I have visited the nokia care center and they reloaded the software, but still the problem persists. Now they are asking me to leave the hand-set for repair, and I cannot do the same, as my major part of job is on phone. They are not ready to give a stand-by also.

    I face the exact problem too!!

    I bought an E50 a couple weeks ago and encountered a peculiar problem - while sometimes answering an incoming call, the speakerphone gets activated automatically and then all functions and keys freeze up! Then the only way to restore the phone is to taking the battery out and replacing it. Nokia replaced the faulty phone with a brand new one but the problem still persists!

    My Nokia e50 hangs on call receive

    Just bought a new nokia e50 smart phone, with the firmware version V 24-10-2006, RM-170. The problem is – every few days the phone hangs on call receive. When I receive a call using the green button, the call immediately goes to the loudspeaker, and all buttons freeze. I have to remove the battery to get the phone operational again.

    Any clues on how to resolve this irritating problem?

    Upgrade to latest firmware released last week and it'll solve all your issues.

    My e50'd loudspeaker doesn't work AT ALL. When i checked the settings, nothing was mis configured. A week after that, i couldn't receive calls, make outgoing calls came next. Phone book wouldn't work. If i dialed manually it would call but if i call from the phone book, it wouldn't call. Now my incoming text messages won't come in. Switched sim cards and got "continue using phone in offline mode?"

    I select "no" and it still has the same problem. Reset the e50 to original settings and i got the error "unable to deactivate offline mode". I set the mode manually to general and the problem is still there.

    Bad idea buying an e50. Too much of a headache.

    Application Manager:

    When installing games/themes on the phone, the manger is unable to delete themes that are stored on the memory card; it also does not list all the applications that are stored on the phone, which means you cannot delete other items already installed to free memory.

    I am also facing the same problem while picking the call.It goes to speaker phone and hangs and doesnt resume back until I remove the battery.The firmware been updated by the Nokia Care centre and its repeated even after the update.The current firmware is v RM170.
    Even after addressing this known issue to Nokia, they are cheating the customers by selling the same model with out solving the issue.

    I face the same problem. The screen just freezes with an incoming call.

    Now the whole phone is frozen. Just cant do anything. Took it to the service center... he returned it after a few days saying, it cant be repaired. Later when it went back to claim a replacement he says it phone has been physically damaged pointing to the rubber power on button on top.

    Very bad idea to buy this phone... but even worse is the service centers attitude (Guys be warned of going to the Nokia Care - Univercell Service centre in Chennai).

    My nokia e50 hangs then switches off on its own and will not start.It only starts on few occassions after the battery is removed and put back. In some cases it does not start up at all even after the battery is removed and put back .I have flashed it on several occassions and the problem is still there.
