I am really happy to say this:

Also you should see E61 Blog (StmcGill) which has been 34 and is ften on the list, it’s a really good one!

Again, Thank You!

Another Accomplishment (Updated: 10/02/2006): TECHMUNDO 2.0 has awarded me a Gold Medal” of a kind. All I can say is Thanks! 🙂

About me

I have a Nokia E61 and use it (almost) to its fullest. And I know more about it than I could post in Comments of other great Nokia E61 blogs, so I decided to make my own. I use my E61 for PIM (Cal, Notes…), Games, watching videos, writing word docs (cause I don’t own a laptop – don’t need one), IMing, and especially surfing the web and reading/writing my GMAIL email…

The purpose of writing this blog is to tell you (the reader) about everything that I do (and you can too) with the new Nokia E61 and/or E62 and to link you to other blogs with useful info about the E61, I will try my best to post only the Best links so that you get the best possible info to be found on the internet.

A little bit about me:
I’m from Finland and so is Nokia.
My interests are [Nokia] smartphones, other technology, and cars.

And here is a list of almost all the phones I’ve owned
Nokia 5110, Nokia 3310, (moved to USA) Nokia 1265, Nokia 3600, SE t616, Nokia 7710, and now Nokia E61…

    Nokia 1265 CDMA was just announced. I think you probably made a typo!

  5. jake61 Says:

    Aalaap, Yeah I guess I made a type… I just can’t remember the model number. I know it was 12xx and has a 6 in it.

    I’ll update the name if i find the correct one somewhere online but thanks for the comment because in a couple of years I would of had incorrect data (though it may mean nothing now it could later especially if someone noticed that I was not saying the truth, though it is an accident)
    Thanks anyway!!

    Some info about the app that you can find useful:

    CallGuard application allows you to manage and to control your incoming calls. The application has both black list functionality for rejecting calls, and whitelist functionality to accept-only list of numbers. CallGuard mutes, rejects your incoming calls and sends the SMS message to the contact number, who was calling you. Now there is no need to mute the phone, if you have a meeting and are waiting for the important call. You need to create the white list and all the calls except the listed one will be muted or rejected according to your settings.

    Key features:

    – The two types of lists can be created: Blacklists and Whitelists;
    – The number of lists is unlimited;
    – There are a few types of the rejected actions;
    – Action ‘Busy’ can be defined when one of the numbers from list is calling
    – Mute ringing is available;
    – The software can reject the incoming calls and send the SMS message to the contact number.
    – The Lists are activated according to your Schedule.
