Maybe not so promising...

Unfortunately there is too much UMTS around here ;-) so I'll have to wait until I get out in the sticks before I can test GPRS and EDGE some more...

OK I can now browse on GPRS and EDGE with native browser or Opera Mini (X-Series Silver Tarrif) however:

* Real Audio streaming seems to be blocked (Not a problem really)
* Nokia Email (final beta) will not work

So I still have no email on GPRS or EDGE.

Any thoughts/suggestions?

I could download the latest FINAL Nokia Email (Now renamed Nokia Messenger I think) or Profimail or am I on to a hiding to nothing?

(Suffice to say that my T-Mobile Blackberry - which I want to get rid of - works great for email on GPRS/EDGE)

Cheers,
Stef

I've just switched my e71 to gsm only and I can't stream with real player either, cant try it with nokia messaging as I no longer have it installed. Tried profimail, pop accounts work fine but I cant get gmail imap to work. Mail for Exchange works fine for emal, calendar and contact sync.

Thanks very much for this I'll give Profimail a go...

If it works on GPRS wiith multiple POP then its bye bye Blackberry...

Smile Very happy with E71 (Bye-bye Blackberry!)

Just thought I would give you all an update:

E71 works well on "3" (Uk) with "X-Series Silver" package. Browsing and email works well on most (but not all) GPRS and EDGE only base stations. Profimail is a fantastic product (It does what it says on the tin!). I just shut my T-Mobile/Blackberry account after five years!

The Nokia S60 3.x is a great platform...

Thanks for your help,
Stef
