    • Adnan

      Ji bhai,I have checked.

      • hashi

        Not supported

  • dissappointed

    btw whats the difference b/w E63 and C3?

    • Adnan

      E63 is SYmbian.C3 is flash.

      • iFadey

        E63 is Symbian 60 Series and C3 is Symbian 40 Series.
        I don’t know why people call S40 JAVA or FLASH :S

        • Symbian is far better than s40. Best feature in symbian is that you can do multi tasking and also there are lots of softwares available for symbian which is also called s60.

    SALAAM readers….
    I was deeply impressed by NOKIA when Nokia “announced” this cell phone…
    Then i started checking Local shops frequently, to get the big news :)
    Now, the cell is easily available in the market in 12k
    My main purpose to buy this WIFI enabled phone is to use it a Voice Messenger and save my spendings on International calls
    I was about tot buy this cell phone, but when i checked the specs, it came out to be S40 Phone. Skype,msn,yahoo and google havent yet released apps for Voice Chat for S40 phones…
    Since this is a S40 based phone, I have questions regarding this cellphone….
    Does this cell phone support the following :-
    1) SKYPE
    2) YAHOO “Voice Chat”
    3) MSN Live “Voice Chat”

    Last but not the Least
    4) Google “Voice Chat”
    Jis kisi kay paas bhi authentic information ho, woh plz reply karay……

    • Adnan

      Bhai,yeh phone Java applications support karta hai.Mujhay nahi lagta k koi application hogi is k liye.
      BTW aap nimbus use kar saktay ho woh S40 v bhi support karta application.Usi main sab clients ajatay hain.

    • Few days back I was about to buy this phone, Bcoz I was inspired by its features & price but when I came to know that this is built on S40 platform, I changed my mind & bought E63 instead of this.

      I would recommend E63 over C3 Bcoz of the following reasons,

      E63 is built on S60 platform and support multi-tasking,
      you can install bundle of application available online, and in Nokia Ovi Store.
      I hv tried Skype as well, it works fine…

      Right now U’ll not be able to install any of the applications u mentioned above in C3, thats sure.

      Bro go for any Symbian S60 phone, If u r looking for a good smart phone.

  • Nabeel | Create Your First Website

    Well one main difference is that E63 is S60 series (Symbian) while C3 is just S40 Series.

  • Nabeel | Create Your First Website

    One difference is that E63 is S60 series (Symbian) while C3 is just S40 Series.

  • Zinnia

  • arty

    It just looks like Blackberry. Hard to find any difference if there were no company names!

  • I was waiting for this model. Currently I have E-63 which is exactly like C3 in design.

    • Shakeel

      Bro what r the differences b/w e66 and c3. Plz reply

  • Ahmer

    I have C5 and its awesome phone……..C3 is not an (Symbian) phone.

  • Asad Khan

    • Assalamwalaikum,

      Skype is available for 5530 (s60v5) and YES you can make voice calls through it :).

    Finally, Nokia has realised and launched a model with wifi and other features. Yesterday, I visited the market and here are my comments:
    1. Probably 1st model in Nokia with wifi
    2. Very rightly priced and good affordable price
    3. I like bar phones so its to good to have full keypad in bar phone

    1. C3 looks like a blackberry copy
    2. Though its rightly priced but if you compare it with BB then it does not seem worth buying.
    3. Nokia suppose to lead in all categories but now if they start copying it like this…I have seriuos doubts.

    In smart phone category I think BB & Iphone are much ahead by Nokia even samsung and LG are doing good. I am surprised why till now nokia is not realising this. I am sure in a months time they will launch C5 or C3i with 1 or 2 enhanced features just like earlier models. I think nokia should re-think their marketing policy and they should stop fooling the consumers. They have already lost the market share pretty drastically and if they never put a stop to it, they will lose it more.

    I hope Nokia will realise soon enough that China will take over their low end, samsung & LG whereas BB, Iphone & Antroid already leading in highend (where the profits are). I wish NOkia best for luck for reviving and survival. (If any nokia team member is reading this kindly take it positively and work for betterment)
