    I'll post reviews once I sign up for the service. I've been asking a lot of questions on here the past few weeks. I actually have another two weeks on my Verizon contract then I'll be going over to AT&T for the Nokia. Pretty excited.

    I read around and it seems like it's exactly what I need.

    It only has 3G connectivity on 850, no 1900 but even if I can't get that all the time I've never had a smart phone with internet so I won't know any better. It doesn't flip or slide both ways or anything fancy, but I wasn't sure I needed all that yet. It has everything I would use built in other than GPS, but I would use my Garmin before I ever used my cell phone for that.

    My question is about the radio. Is it a transmitter for playing songs through the radio, or is it an actual radio tuner you can listen to?

    steveeD, what do I need? Mini opera and Google Maps?

    i have the nokia e71 and it doesn't have an actual radio tuner you can listen to, it's just a transmitter... so i don't know about e51 but since they're the e-series they are probably the same

    I'm sure they are. With the live.fm and mobbler that takes care of that though. Can't wait to get it.

    Alright, so I love the phone. To clarify on above, it actually has a radio tuner. I don't know if it has a transmitter or not...haven't figured that out yet.

    I also can't figure out how to get Last.fm to work either. I have Mobbler installed now, but I can't seem to play any of the songs/artists I have saved using Last.fm on my computer. Am I missing something?

    Also, does anyone know where I can find the settings to set up the Instant Messaing?
