please i love this phone and i want to buy it like 20 please can you send like 2 to me to test them?
I have read through some of this reviews and all i can do it agree. I am glad that some people phones are working fine, but the rest of us is facing extreme frustration. No only the zooming issue or the loud speaker that sucks but my issue is with the modem. its very random, downloading emails have never suck this much. It also prefers EDGE over 3G, where my previous LG was constant 3G and stable.
I hate to say it but this phone is design to test human nature.
Mine is still going on fine without any problems. Am sorry to hear that it is a nightmare phone for some. Nokia should do the right thing by either giving the money back, or replacing it with either a E71 or E72.
Vex, 25 Feb 2010Hi P1 how do we downlosd the softwareYou can update software go to settings then SW Update. There was 3 updates and after them there is no problem with zoom at all, averything run smooth...so far.
I got this phone on a contract, let me tell you i've never had any problems with any of my other nokia phones. The 6710 Navigator is a @&¤ nightmare. I returned my 1st one with zooming problems and the keypad freezed. I got the second one, the phoned freezed and switched off by itself. I got the 3rd phone, it freezed and didnt want to switch off. I demande a different phone on the same contract. I got the E71 and it's a dream phone. I have the E75 and the E71 is even better. I will stick to the E series. Nokia wont admit it, but the 6710 Navigator really give problems. There might be 1 or 2 phones that is working properly, but really... And if you have to update the software before the phone is working fine then its not the best phone x
This is best phone ever, after soft update there is no zoom problem at all, everything work perfect. Opera run flawlessly, few software installed work perfect just garmin gps keep freezing, hope after new version it will be fixed. Very happy with phone. Nokia well done.
I have one, its the best phone ive ever owned, no problems at all.... Just downloaded the world maps provided by nokia its free and i am very happy with it.... Battery is excellent, i use bluetooth handfree ear piece and still the battery doesnt gets low.
This fone is a pure nightmare, i returned 1 on saturday got a new one and the things keeps going on a data connection on its own.
I made certain that i had nothing running. Even pulled out the battery and put it back on again.
Im taking it back and because the store doesnot have any other nice phones and this is a contract upgrade i will have to settle for something i dont like...LIKE HELL!!! Mtn and nokia havent dealt with me yet.
anoynomous, 22 Feb 2010 Hey Errol, did you investigate if the the problem was really to replace some circuitry to sor... moreI got the brown one with the zooming problem so it is not just the titanium ones.
If you haven't yet posted to Nokia support forums, please do it. Nokia has to repair the phones or return our money
Errol, 14 Feb 2010I have just got one - 7 February 2010, so the phone is still available from Vodacom. However, ... more Hey Errol, did you investigate if the the problem was really to replace some circuitry to sort the zooming problem out???
to show the compass if you updated the maps. just click on number 5 and it will appear :)
ofcourse u then have to calibrate it by shaking the phone or swinging it as if u r writing number 8 with it
Got my new phone 1.the answer key does not work 2.the phone freezes 3.in the gallery pictures auto zoom and select and dis-select 4.GPS Auto zoom. took it back second phone same problem. took it back said they awaiting fresh stock that dont have all these problem
Hey I got my 6710 since dec 2009 and had nothing but problems with it. When on the web or in my photo gallery, it zooms in and out doing it's own thing. When typing a text message it frozes, you still type but nothing happens. Been to a nokia tech and got the latest software update but still the problem persist. And the best is that the service provider was sooo quick and efficient to upgrade and now I get nowhere with anyone. This sucks!
Thanks jc, the accelerometer is now working fine. I am shocked and saddened that so many people are facing major issues with this phone, especially, when working well, this phone is a real pleasure to own.
I suspect that the defective phones were made by a fly -by-night company which the main manufacturing company in China must have sub-contracted to on the cheap.
The following method is a suggestion that might.
1) Are all the defective phones the titanium ones ? If so request for a different color phone. If not go to #2)
2) Download new maps from Ovi, and upgrade the firmware to the latest available. Still not working ? Go to # 3.
3)Borrow a branded micro SD card and try the phone with this. Still not working ? Go to # 4.
4)Go to the store where you bought the phone and try a 6710 Navigator which is not tied up to a carrier. If this works fine, you can buy the phone outright - but there is always the $$$ to consider. If you cannot afford to buy it outright, then go for another contract with a phone from SE, LG or Samsung !!

After setting the sensor switch to on as you suggested all the problems disappeared. Thanks for the great tip. (When using the screen zooming method be sure to be very gentle ... move your finger only millimeters at a time.
Had the phone now for two months. No zooming issues with GPS, but bad shielding from signal when making phone calls makes it more or less unusable.Just got it back from Nokia SA and the problem persists. Latest Ovi Maps update (3.3) also does not make use of digital compass anymore. Here is sample of what I hear when making a call: http://drop.io/h5yq3r8/asset/j...1-58-121-amr

It's done nothing but wonders to me. I even reckon that it's better than the e71. I could never ask for a more perfect phone to carry with me.
I even have the same thoughts as you thinking that it has no accelerometer--well we're wrong. On my third day of testing and just checking out the phone I saw the setting that activates the ACCELEROMETER. Just go like this:
SETTINGS > General > Sensor settings > ON!
Voila! Accelerometer activated!
And I would like to tell you that YES :) The CAMERA on this phone is SUPERB.
Already using it for more than 2 months now. I have the Chestnut Brown one. Pity to those who have the Titanium one.
I got this phone on a contract upgrade yesterday afternoon. This morning i returned it! The blasted thing just restarts on its own. Nice features yes, but value for money is important too. No use owning a car and it got no steering wheel, so no use owning a smart phone that doesnot work!
