Even though tmobile decided not to update the 710 to wp 7.8. It's actually not a problem with Nokia, it's tmobile decision. However, I upgraded three 710 to 7.8 successfully via a program called seveneighter. It's a very handy phone, it's has many shortcomings, but it has many good things to offer too. I am stuck with Nokia because of Nokia Drive, a GPS app which you can use offline worldwide without any data plan. And I think nokia has more pentaband phones than others, including this 710. With later 7.5 and 7.8 upgrades, you can use tethering, Internet sharing directly with the 710. As for apps, the ones in the App Store is more than enough for me already, why do you need so many useless apps. On the on side, 710 cannot do Bluetooth transfer, a major drawback to me. And window phone cannot do VPN tunneling, a showstopper for them to be useful in the business world. 3.7inches screen is a bit too small, but tolerable.
Dont ever go for this phone. am suffering since from 6 months from the day of purchase. plz plz dont go for it. Go for any other smart phone except NOKIA
This phone is terrible; it was ok at first, but it has been forgotten. I am still running 7.5 Mango and updates are slow to get to t-mobile, there are little to no apps available. If you are to buy a Windows phone be sure to get one with Windows 8 the OS is a lot better and there are more apps and compatibility
i bought the phone from canada and brought it to ghana. i inserted the sim and it requesting for a pin, what should i do,any help please.

Shame on U Nokia...Phone have only demerits which are as follows..
1.No front camera
2.No micro SD card
4.No file share via Bluetooth(useless)
5.No flash player
6.Not support third party content..so U can't download anything from Internet..
7.Have to download anything from market place only,that also have limited application(Of course not free)
8.Headset sucks Nokia's D*** during call..frnd sound is so rough & distorting during call that you prefer not use your headset again.
9.Ringtone Volume and music & radio volume are same,when you reduce music volume your Ringtone volume also reduce..+ vibration is very poor (So U definately going to miss ur call)
10.Battery quite ok but suck while using 3G internet and playing games..(so avoid these thing while on travel,which is the only medium of entertainment)
11.Friends price is near 15k (India)
12.Friends many other technical fault in this products but I can't type more because my fingers have start pain....
should have ban on this product ha ha...
and those who still want to purchase rply me....
utouh, 08 Jan 2013very bad mobile, the menu is not there is a empty space in the right, when i show it to my fri... moreThe menu layout exactly as you said, it's windows phone mate. If you don't like it you could buy android or ios. We as the proud of Lumia 710 owner don't care about your small problems. If you want multitasking just hold the back button. You should explore the full features before you comment. The phone is innocent.
very bad mobile, the menu is not there is a empty space in the right, when i show it to my friends they say that the screen menu is not fully fit in the screen, it a boring screen menu, i regret the time i have it,
dont buy this wp phone, limited apps to be installed, 4gig internal memory is very small and no card slot, wp has NO multitasking, wp is not good OS.
