Who wants a Wi-Fi Phone? Actually, I do!

Can I change my mind? Contraary to my last post, I think the issues with Wi-Fi handsets are well on the way to being solved.

What's happened to me? I've been using a Nokia E61. Now, I'd heard about the E-series, but remained sceptical. Having used it I found in practice it gives very good battery life in either Wi-Fi or cellular mode (leave them both on and the battery drains noticeably quicker than an ordinary phone). And the voip options for it, like Truphone, are actually useful.

Apart from anything else, the phone -- the first Nokia I've got to know properly for some time -- is well designed and does what it should do.

Thanks for mentioning us from (( truphone )). I have been using a Nokia E60 for several months on the (( truphone )) service. It has done wonders to my mobile bill. It has dropped from a level of £450 to £50, massive savings. I am now using (( truphone )) as a landline and mobile replacement. Once you overcome the installation problems with the help of Mobile VoIP Forum the service is wonderful. Great voice quality and serive uptime. And landline to most destination around the world are free until the end of the year.
