My E6-00 has just arrived back from Nokia after a microphone problem repair and a version update. I originally asked them to remove the service provider's videos played when the phone starts up or shuts down, but I got a completely upgraded OS in general.
I'm pretty happy with it, except I cannot seem to find some basic features that were there on the previous OS. What I'd like to ask is, can I still apply and use them ? Here's what I'm talking about ...
1. Notification area on homescreen has completely disappeared.
2. Messaging application no longer lets me choose which memory to use to store messages (???). Message icon (a while envelope) is blinking at the bar on the top of the screen, which (as far as the manual goes) tells me I'm out of space for messages (!?).
3. Next to the blinking envelope icon, I also have some kind of a 3/4 square next to it. Anybody knows what it means ? I did look up the manual at Nokia.com but didn't find anything.
4. Since there probably are differences between the Belle and the previous operating systems, is there a manual especially for the Belle version ? The manual I just downloaded from Nokia refers me to a notification area on the homepage, which doesn't exist in my phone as mentioned.
That's about it so far. All in all I'm very happy with the new OS and I have to say I do feel it's faster.
Thank you very much
Notification area is now a pull down from top of screen and push up on three line horizontal bar icon at base of screen to disappear.
Blinking envelope usually indicates a SIM message for deletion. Unfortunately no option to specify where SMS are stored now.

The icon still blinks even though I re-installed the SIM message settings (that were sent to me upon launching the fresh phone from repair). Is there anything else it might indicate ?
The manual I received with my phone isn't for the Belle version, as well as the manual I found on Nokia's website. Couldn't find one on Google as well.

I Googled the blinking envelope issue and figured "SIM message" means a message that is probably stored on the SIM or something like that. It's not the operator or setting messages as I'd previously thought.
To go to SIM messages one have to go to ...
Messaging > View Folders > Options > SIM messages
... and delete all messages from there.
I didn't have anything unread (obviously) but it still helped, strange.
There's that square-like icon on the notification bar I don't know its indication. Any help welcome.
I am sorry you were forced into the Belle "upgrade". My E6-00 currently is in the trash can behind me in pieces. This is a result of the Belle debacle. Since I upgraded to Belle, I have seen my phone go from a useful tool to a brick. Battery life went from several days to less than a day; I was able to overcome this by downloading App Stop and running it periodically. The phone restarts randomly and if it goes unnoticed, several QT apps start and drain the battery. The only way to stop them is with App Stop or something similar. With Belle, I also had problems with connection; most of the time if I lost signal, I would have to restart the phone 1 or 2 times before it would reconnect. Places where I had fair connection with Anna, had no connection on Belle. The phone went from being responsive with Anna to sluggish with Belle. I was a diehard Nokia fan prior to this E6 experience but I will never buy another Nokia again.

I just waked up in the morning using the E6's clock alarm.
You can turn if off only by touch screen -- which I couldn't do because for some reason, it was (once again) locked and refused to respond !!! I was stuck with a ringing phone waking up my other roommates ...
Not the most clever thing by Nokia letting you turn it off only by touchscreen -- considering you're not very sharp when waking up .... plus, a touchscreen that stops working every now and then is a two edged sword ...
