Great to hear, many thanks!

This is the first time that we hear from Nokia that you will take action to fix it - so far the only information was that the issue was forwarded to R&D.

This is highly appreciated, by myself for sure and by the entire community, I think!

Looking forward to your solution.

Re: Nokia E6 doesn’t have notification light

What about the little message problem from the v22.014 update?

 

It so freaks me out! Is that going to be targeted to???

 

When can we expect an update!

 

Just as info, one month, two?

Re: Nokia E6 doesn’t have notification light

Sorry, I don't have a schedule info but I'll post more info when it's available.

I'm working at Nokia, but all my posts represent my own views and these should not be mixed up with Official NOKIA statements.

Re: Nokia E6 doesn’t have notification light

@4Cu2: I forgot to mention: hopefully Nokia is not only working on a solution for notification light being barely visible, but also on allowing a notification to be set for email (rather than for sms and missed calls only). I firmly believe that both issues belong together, to enhance usability of the phone significantly!  Works perfectly well on an E72. And just fixing one of the two issues would not change a lot. Thanks.

Re: Nokia E6 doesn’t have notification light

Yes, fixing the notification also for email is a must-have indeed. Crazy that this isn't working by default.

My Nokia history:
2110 => 6110 => 8110 => 6310 => 2300 => 2600 => 6070 => E71 => N97 Mini => E72 => C7 => E7 => E6 => 700

Re: Nokia E6 doesn’t have notification light

Can it be related also to this also?

 

One thing thats must be fixed by Nokia is the screenlight and keyboardlight settings.

 

The facts:

 

1. We have 5 steps to choose from, from minimum to maximum.

2. The step you choose will affect the light settings for the screen and the keyboard equally.

 

I think most people thinks that step 3 is very good in daylight, maybe step 4 if it is very sunny outdoors but, but for gods sake, why will then the keyboard light shine bright for the birds in the sky light?

No one needs keyboard light if it very bright. Get it?

 

In the night it is probably quiet enough for most people to have settings to number 2 or even minimum cause the screen is so good, but: then you can´t see the keyboard cause the light is not there. Stupidity!

 

Settings must be variable for each of the keyboard and screen or go divert directions from each other.

 

I think this is a major flaw and if the keyboard light is shining bright during the day (for what use again) then the impact of the battery take a hit.

 

I personally have it put on 2 of 5 all the time now but the keyboard light just isnt there when it is dark outside.

I even think that minimum is quiet enough in the night for my eyes, but then I can´t use the keyboard.

 

These kind of things make me actually rather mad now.

Re: Nokia E6 doesn’t have notification light

Hello Aimes1,

I also have the white Nokia E6 and found it very frustrating that the light was too dim. However, that was until I read Ayush3090 post (who is also a contributor on this site). The recommendation was a app called "Remind Me" --- it is posted on this blog: http://ne6t.wordpress.com/2011/08/16/remindme-app/

 

The creator (Ayush3090) has also offered to provide a pin code to get the full working version of the app for free! Normally, it's $6.99 on Ovi Store. I have downloaded the app and absolutely love it and swear by it. As someone mentioned here b4, "indicator 2" is probably the best notification option...it lights up all 6 keys surounding the D-Pad. Even with my white phone, the lights are super bright and noticeable.

 

Hope this helps!

Re: Nokia E6 doesn’t have notification light

I think we all will get another phone until Nokia fixes these issues.

 

So there's no reason hopping.

 

If it was a major interest for them, the problem would have bin solved 2 months ago!

 

But they just don't care.

Re: Nokia E6 doesn’t have notification light

The Notification light has its own LED power which can be increased with a firmware update.

 

Very Low Vibration Alert issue can be done the same way.

 

Hopefully Nokia is ready all the comments and fix the mentioned above issues as well as battery life that has been decreased by installing version 22.014 (ANNA) on E6. Also the battery heats up alot before update , now it gets hot whenever using it for listening songs or browsing web and my most concerned issue is the battery life.

Re: Nokia E6 doesn’t have notification light

[ Edited ]

I have been monitoring this thread since June and I am extremely disappointed with Nokia's reaction time. Three months later and R&D have no solution? Really?

 

Instead we get R&D speaking to us by proxy of other Nokia employees. This is terrible, broken communication.

 

I was really interested in buying an E6, especially because of the supposed battery life, but in the real world it sounds like no one has been able to experience 744 hours of standby time. Then this unexpected notification light issue came up and the keypad lights are needlessly turned on all the time wasting precious battery life. I am not encouraged by the lack of responses from R&D.

 

No official fixes + no update support + no communication = no purchase. Sorry. I will take my business to another vendor instead.

Re: Nokia E6 doesn’t have notification light

At least you have monitored and done your research.  Unfortunately for the most of us, we found out the substandard E6 the hard way - including a much lighter pocket!

Re: Nokia E6 doesn’t have notification light

After reading this discussions, I tried to get in to nokia store nearby and try the device myself. **bleep**, same problems same case.

I've asked the store to contact me when all the problems is fixed so i can buy the phone. Hope the fix will not be too long, well until a better alternative comes up (read: business class touch and type).
