I took delivery of a Nokia E70-1 yesterday; my 5th or 6th Nokia 'phone. I installed PC Suite Version 6.8.1, and find it to be a complete nightmare. I am using an HP Pentium 4 desktop with stacks of available memory and HD, running Windows XP Professional SPII patched to date. I have only tried connecting using the supplied Nokia CA-53 USB cable; and so far have only been trying (about 12 hours to date)to get my contacts transferred. In the first instance I tried to synchronise with Outlook Express, but the program kept crashing & on restarting creating duplicate entries on the 'phone. When it runs it is very slow, so slow that initially I thought that it had locked up once or twice when it was simply running as fast as a snail. I then tried to transfer contacts (about 800 in all) from my Nokia 6810 RM2, firstly using bluetooth, and later by copying via the SIM. I finished up with about 1,300 entries on the E70 as contacts, lot of duplicates.... I am now trying to delete the duplicates using PC Suite but it continually locks up. I have uninstalled all the PC Suite software, and reinstalled it - result it won't run at all. I have run the PC Suite repair program which also locks up. The 'phone itself is very "slow", it take an age to "boot", and to disconnect after making a call. Unless I can get a quick solution I shall reject the 'phone, as unfit, and with regret move to another supplier. Final point - this BBS software is VERY poor. I had nicely formatted this posting into sensible paragraphs, but it appears as a single "slab" of text.
