The little red light on your Nokia 710 is in fact a light detector.
When you have your 'Brightness', check your 'Settings, set to automatic the light detector, the 'little red light', checks on surrounding light conditions and brightens your screen accordingly.
As for Bluetooth Microsoft have 'Broke' it, it does NOT work.
Hope this helps you my friend.
I don't understand this red light in the front,what is for,web cam or front camera? And can U please tell me how to update Bluetooth because it won't connect when sending or recieving??

srikandan, 02 Mar 2015how to install tamil font in lumia 710. and bluetooth is not wrkng..what to doHello brother, am having same mobile. How to have Tamil font. Did u got updated?
richieco, 03 Jul 2015How do l upgrade to wp 7.8You must check in the settings menu at settings>updates, the phone will search for an update, and will tell you when a new update is available.
Then connect your phone with the pc by using the data cable and the Zune software. You can perform updates through Zune.
My Lumia 710 still works great and performs well as it should. Very nice phone and good size, nice screen.
Battery isn't that good but at least it's removable. When using it as my daily driver I can get about a day of use from the battery with power saving mode on when it's below 20%.
Camera is average but it will do for day to day usage. One thing I miss which has nothing to do with the phone itself, is Skype being discontinued by MS for WP7.8 and it's a shame really. The rest is pretty good, very cheap phone with all the functions you need.
Even after a long time of use it is still smooth and fast with the OS.
have been using it for some time now drops a couple of times screen still intact and crisp good phone if u're careless like me
Nokia Lumia 710, this phone is worth a review
If you are looking for a phone which has all the basic features of smartphone and don't want all the complex applications of an android this is the phone. Period. The phone has been with me for almost four years now and it is still performing intact. In fact, today i am updating it to windows phone 7.8 just for fun.
The phone performs extremely well and is the phone which is used in my home as the daily driver. It has every major app that you are going to use on a smartphone like whatsapp, navigation etc. If you ask me, it is the perfect choice for people who look to buy smartphone without much further complication.
Talking about the camera quality and video quality, it is only average. The pics and videos taken from the phone is not bad at all in any comparison. You don't need to feel ashamed of that.
Another important feature to note when talking about this phone is the call quality. Even though there was some hiccups in connecting calls while i first brought this phone, it now performs smoothly without any problem and the call quality has been excellent.
For quite a period of time, i have put this phone under heavy test by streaming videos and browsing web and it never disappointed me and i am very happy with the performance of the phone
One thing i am disappointed in this phone is with the battery. The battery is not too great and you could just make it a day with average use.
One more hiccup with the phone is that if you want to transfer files or music from your computer, it's another story. That is why i said this phone is for the people who just needs a "Simple Smartphone".
So that's it guys....Thanks for reading
P.S: You may think i am mad writing review for a phone released in 2011 but since i am waiting the phone to get updated to windows phone 7.8 and has nothing better to do, i thought i might do this.
Less No of Apps But Great Hardware quality by nokia . throwed thrice towards wall still not breaken just some paint scratched love nokia
Shaurya1, 04 Dec 2012Helo friends can any one tell Nokia lumia 710 's battery is changable or not ? Thanks in advanceThe battery is re-chargeable and also easy to replace. When travelling I bring along a second battery to ensure I have full day use when I know I will being using its camera, WiFi, and/or Bluetooth. It only delivers 10 hours of standby on a full charge if it is on Standby with WiFi and Bluetooth turned off and minimal or no media playback.
