First of all make sure that you choose your preferred language for the voice guidance under Tools -> Regional settings, and that your phone is not in the `silent` or `meeting` modes. Then you should make sure that the "Warning tones" are turned on in your phone`s settings.

Dallas, TX - June 15, 2009 - Quickoffice, Inc., the leading global provider of mobile office productivity software, today announced it will be offering free upgrades to the latest version of Quickoffice for users on certain Nokia Eseries phones. Currently this program includes the Nokia E51, E52, E55, E63, E66, E71 (excluding AT&T E71x model), E72, E75 and E90 devices.
Starting today, users of the above devices can download Quickoffice 6 as a free upgrade via Quickmanager®, Quickoffice’s secure on-device, e-commerce portal. Quickoffice 6 includes more advanced document viewing and editing functionality of Microsoft Office 2007 documents, ZIP file support, password-protected file handling, Excel 2007 chart viewing and multiple usability enhancements. Subsequent software updates released by Quickoffice for these select devices will also be available on a continual basis, including PowerPoint 2007 format support. Quickoffice 6 will initially only be available in English and a fully localized update will follow in the near future.
"Through our long-running partnership with Nokia, most S60 users have already benefited by receiving Quickoffice on their devices as part of their phone’s initial firmware, providing users with essential viewing and editing functionality of Office documents," Gregg Fiddes, VP of sales and strategic partnerships for Quickoffice. "Recently, we’ve been working with Nokia to provide these S60 users with an easy and reliable way to update their Quickoffice software. Now, through Quickmanager, they can easily access the latest version and begin utilizing these new enhancements and feature improvements we’ve developed."

I don't know about you but even with a QWERTY keyboard, I still have apprehensions with having to type antidisestablishmentarianism on the Nokia E63. Today while playing with the phone, I suddenly (re)discovered the predictive text feature.
In notes, Create SMS, email or whatever, press the left selection key and go to Input Options --> Predictive text --> On. As you type a word, the phone will try to guess what you are trying to type. To accept the suggestion, just press spacebar. If not, keep typing and the phone will continue to try guess the rest of your word. It's quite nifty, especially if the phone is learning words as you go along. Does it? not sure. Anyway.. try out this feature and next time you need to use a 21 character word, you'll smile to yourself as you save heaps of time
This is when it is important to have a Nokia E63 and above. The new Nokia Maps, now called Ovi Maps 3.0 is available only to the following devices:
- S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 (E63, E66, E71, E90 Communicator, N81, N81 8GB, N82, N95, N95 8GB)
- S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 (E55, E75, N78, N79, N85, N86 8MP, N96, 5320 XpressMusic, 5630 XpressMusic, 5730 XpressMusic, 6210 Navigator, 6220 Classic, 6650, 6710 Navigator, 6720 Classic)
- S60 5th Edition (5800 XpressMusic & N97)

- Calls: Around 15 calls made and about 3 calls received, with almost 40 minutes call duration in total.
- Data: 726kb data sent and 3.96mb downloaded
- WIFI: About 20 minutes of WIFI use
- Applications: Use of Skype and Gmail application as well as a bit of Nokia Maps and Google Maps
The battery eventually gave up after 2 more hourse of standby. The Nokia website says the following about the Nokia E63 battery:
- BP-4L 1500 mAh Li-Po standard battery
- Talk time (maximum): GSM up to 11 hours; WCDMA up to 4h 40 min
- Standby time (maximum): GSM up to 18 days; WCDMA up to 20 days;WLAN idle up to 170 hours
If you are wanting to make comparisons with the Nokia E71 battery life, this is what the Nokia website claims for the Nokia E71. The Nokia E63 and E71 both use the same battery - BP-4L 1500 mAh Li-Po battery but E71 is slightly more demanding on the battery life.
- Talk time:- GSM up to 10 h 30 min- WCDMA up to 4 h 30 min
- Standby time:- GSM up to 17 days- WCDMA up to 20 days- WLAN idle up to 166 hours
If you are willing to help, maybe you can do the same experiment for your Nokia E63. Use the call logs and the data counter under "Connectivity" and measure how long your Nokia E63 battery lasts with "normal" usage. Report your findings in the comments below and someone just as curious as you googling battery life E63 will also benefit from your efforts.
Your mobile habits may not be as demanding as me but I hope this helped you in your battery life calculations for the Nokia E63.
To charge a battery from empty to full, it took 2 hours and 40 minutes.

Many people wonder, what do you do next?
Plug the phone into the charger and leave it connected as long as you can. Ignore the user guide (not advisable but it happens). Insert sim card and battery. Try calling and SMS another phone. It worked. Turn off the key tones (don't know why people have them on). Try out the internet connection, worked well. Register for My3 website. Didn't work and spent 1 hour with 3 customer care whilst:
- Transfer Contacts and calendar from the old Nokia E65 via Tools -> Transfer -> Bluetooth.
- Connect the phone via bluetooth to Nokia PC suite
- Install Google Maps. Change internet connection to WIFI. Test GPS dongle. Works well.
- Install GMail application. Login and check mail.
- Install Australia Maps via PC suite to Nokia Maps (now called Ovi Maps?)
- Check phone firmware is up to date. The latest firmware for the Nokia E63 is up to date
Firmware date 14/11/08
Firmware version 100.21.110
To check firmware version, enter *#0000#
- Test Skype, worked very well.
I've also emailled the IMEI number to myself as well as the documentation for the phone and contract. This way, I can have it electronically available.
Call settings -> Show Call duration on, Summary after call on, Call Waiting on, Caller ID yes.
What were your first steps?

Everyone asks, what's the difference? Here are some comparisons between Nokia E63 and Nokia E71. First of all, in Australia the Nokia E71 retails at about $200 more than the Nokia E63.
* The E63 has a plastic casing and the E71 has a metal casing. The metal casing attracts fingerprints.
* Size E63 = E71 except for the depth where E63 is around 1.5 times fatter
* The E63 has a normal 3.5mm jack on top versus the E71’s 2.5mm jack on the side.
* Keyboard layout, E63 adds a ‘/’ button next to the space bar.
* Screen size The E63 has a slightly smaller dimension screen but resolution = E71 @ 320x240 pixels.
* The E63 has no GPS, HSDPA data (internet is slower) and no side buttons for volume
* The E63 has a 2MP camera versus the E71’s 3.2MP and has a fixed focus.
* The E63 adds a flashlight function that allows the camera’s LED flash to be used as a torch which the E71 doesn't do.
The Nokia E71 also comes with the following, which don't come with the E63.
* An additional memory card
* Leather slip case
* Micro-usb cable
What about you? Leave a comment. Why does the E63 make the E71 look overrated? Or maybe you are proud of your shiny E71 and the fact that it knows where it is without assistance. Or are you sitting on the fence at the moment?
