I’m not one to bitch about cell phones – unless there’s a big problem. HOWEVER, by charging the most for a phone (in their cell phone line), the LEAST they could do is to do a decent job of checking the cell phone’s software BEFORE it’s released!
One thing that I LOOK for in a phone is the ability to encrypt the contents of the memory stick – it’s nice to know that if one’s phone is stolen (or forgotten, like the Apple employee with the prototype iPhone 4G who forgot it in a bar bathroom) then the contents of the phone are not retrievable (without serious effort).
So, I stumbled across the settings for ENCRYPT (home/control panel/phone/encryption) – and decided I’d encrypt my memory stick.
I put in a password the first time.
Then, when I started to put the password in a second time, I decided I wanted to use a different password. So, I purposefully put in a different password in the CONFIRMATION FIELD.
SHOCKINGLY, the password was accepted! by the phone.
It proceeded to encrypt the memory stick.
After the encryption, my SMS messages were locked, and I was unable to create any new messages (I had purposefully chosen to save SMS files to the memory stick).
So, I decided to DECRYPT the memory stick.
It didn’t ask me for a password -oooops! minor security flaw.
It decrypted the memory stick, but in doing so, it corrupted all the files. Not fun.
So, when considering the Nokia e72, my review of it would be, take a pass until they can come up with better OS applications; namely, when the phone’s glitches aren’t so bad that you can feel safe using it.
