"pretty but dumb"2.5 starson by msn2002
Pros: great looks, great web and calls
Cons: big con: dumb email. have gmail on it that does not show latest mail. connects then disconnects in 2 seconds, always two-three days late, even skipped all mails till 2007! for a biz phone, this smartphone is dumb. worse, nokia does not respond.
Summary: i loved this for the size and the looks. as well as for the smooth web interface. but no one these days can let an hour pass without access to email. esp for business. touted as a smart business phone, Nokia E75 is an absolute hell, the advertising completely false. i could not get my latest mail, i always seem to be at least a day behind. and today was the last straw. it skipped all mail from last night to 2007! this is my third Nokia phone and i always had problems. this is definitely the last time i am buying Nokia. a pity becuase the style is simply great. and i like the fact that its price makes the phone not so common. my husband is on his third Blackberry and he is tickled silly about how dumb Nokia is, and how dumb i am for sticking to Nokia still. well, this is the end of the road for me with Nokia. if its email feature cannot deliver email, then what good is it as a supposed smartphone? CNET, do not be cursory about your review. do some research, check Nokia and other forums about products you review. you will see how horrendous this email feature is especially for so many. vanity sure got me again, by going for looks over substance.just an update on this phone and its dumb email feature: an acknowleddgment that it is indeed dumb and that nokia knew about this and still touted this as a smart phone:

Thanks for providing so much feedback about this Google Sync situation, we appreciate it! Unfortunately, Google Sync is not supported on the Mail for Exchange client. We are able to get Google Sync working on some Nokia devices via Mail for Exchange, but we are certainly aware that it doesn't work on the E75. We struggled long and hard to come up with a way to get Google Sync working on the E75, but we couldn't come up with a workaround for the problem. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
