For example if you want to open the folder or app thats on the top left, you'd press 1, for the folder/app on the top right you'd press *, for anything between those its either 2 or 3.. for the bottom right app/folder it'd be 0 etc.. do you get it?
for example if your menu in icon view looks like this:

To open A you'd press 1, 2 for B, 3 for C, and * for D, 4 for E, 5 for F, yada yada..

1st thing: It the best symbian phone EVER!!! It ain't slow like those "wanna-b-iphone" interface, like the nokia N78.
2nd thing: i transferred some data by not using the nokia pc suit that came with the phone, instead i browsed the phone as a mass storage device, then after that my memory card showed repeated photos, the same photo with the same file name over 20 times in the phone. I had 2 format my memory card n only then i could solve the problem. Transferring without pc suit was a horrid experience. Using pc suit was better. I did solve the problem but i'm more keen 2 find out y was there a glitch, if there was one in the 1st place?

Not very sensible of u to make fun of others especially u know what he meant.
No, E71 doesn't connect to BBC. It has its own Push Email. Works fine For me so far. As for someone who asked about the keypad, its responsive enough.
Why all Symbian OS cant change default ringtone for unknown caller or unknown sender, while Windows Mobile can?!
Vishal, 06 Dec 2008Hi All,
i have been doing extensive research on the mobile (i am planning to buy 1)....still ... moreMan, how could you compare E71 with P1i?
I have it both, let me tell you if you want touchscreen and great camera go to P1i, otherwise E71!
for someone asking about BlackBerry connect, NO, E71 (or newer Nokia) doesn't support BB connect anymore 'cause Nokia is already have Nokia Mail Center. You can Push Email with this Wonderful, Amazing, Charming thing.

Although it looks similar t the blackberry no it is not in the blackberry family.

The price for this fine machinery will be for you . . . what currency? €, CNY, CAD, HRK, EEK, HUF, ISK, JPY, RON, ZAR, SEK, RUB, PHP, PLN, GBP, THB???
A bit more specific would be handy for persons to answer. Also you can check simple questions like these on Internet sites in your country.
