Dear Brother Paeijho, thanks for your quick help, I appriciate that. But unfortunately I am not yet satisfied! I have understood about the FW and saw what you told me to dial, I saw 35, but I what I don't know yet is that where to go to from the website you gave me, is it in my computer then download it in to my mobile or I write the website into my mobile browser then download it straight from my mobile internet into to my mobile? Please tell me how to bring the latest firm ware into my mobile!
Besides, I have a lot of mobile repair centres in my country Kenya, but I think you haven't got my first problem, I said; my code got blocked, it is not that I forgot it but the code got locked after I dialed wrong number in it, so now it is blocked and can't be used anymore, I don't know if you have that problem too, thank you my brother, I really appriciate for your help, I would love if you gave a contact address like your number or email address, bye! Mohamed.
hai Mohamed, glad you like my country.;)
bad luck about the phone got locked, perhaps you still have the service centres in your country?
if yes, ask them for the phone code, it's should be free of charge, but it depends.
firmware is the software that operate the phone, it's like the brain.
you can check your phone FW version by typing *#06# and move to the next tab, look for it there.
the newest FW would be 45, find it at www.gsm-multifund.de
for further questions, you can go to www.club-siemens.net/forum or www.siemensplanet.com/forum, you'll find me and other helpfull members there.
Please help me it is me Mohamed, my E71 has two problems, the phone code has locked itself after I tried to insert the wrong code for three attempts. I still don't have phone code, do you know how to unlock it please!
My other problem is I don't know what Firm Ware is and what it does for a phone! Please preifly explain to me what it is and how it helps a phone.
I THINK PAEJHO IS THE MASTER HERE, PLEASE HELP ME MY BROTHER! I LOVE INDONESIA, THE WORLD'S HIGHEST MUSLIM POPULATED NATION! MY EMAIL ADDRESS IS firstname.lastname@example.org and my cellphone number is +254724832489
ok, what makes you said that?
have you tried the phone for real?
this is indeed one good multimedia phone, one of the best in it's class!
if you compare it with smartphone or PDA then yes it's useless.:P
read the specs here, you'll see.
E71 is one Java phone, not Symbian like Nokia.
but still you'll find alot of Java apps.
get one, magnificent phone!
hi! i am interested with E71,
-may i know what video & music format/file extension supported for this phone.
-can it download software like nokia - symbian phone.
you mean the icons in the preview?
well it's just a preview, in the real world you can't change the icons by changing themes.
Hi guys, yeah I tried to connect to other devices, 1 laptop (worked), 2 mobiles (worked), it's probably only my Asus A8JN that E71 doesn't want to connect to. Pity, well, I've got a cable so I will probably have to live with it. As for most recent posts, here's a Czech website with FW downloads: http://siemensmania.cz/, it's pretty simple, in the left menu, under Services, click on Firmware and there you go.
One more thing, I tried to apply various themes to E71 but when there are redecorated icons, my icons remain still the samy, any idea why this is? Thanx a lot, L
did you already check the phone memory?
maybe it's full, the phone wont accept it when it's full.
about the site, use google translate to read it in English.
hi the website u gave for downloading firmware is in german. how about 1 in english?
i have tried to get friends to send me songs in mp3 form via bluetooth only my phone keeps aborting. apparently it doen not support audio files? does anyone know what i should do about this?
Any one have some advise. Tried to update my firmware from 37 to 41 and now the phone will not turn on at all. Of course I have tried pulling the battery and the sim card. Please please help
soryy i don't know about the bluetooth issue, but have you tried to connect with other device?
about the FW update, download it at http://gsm-multifund.de/board/downloads.php?do=cat&id=178 (need to register first) and then coneect your phone to the computer and run the updater file, it'll tell you what to do, easy.
Hi there, yesterday I also became the lucky owner of E71, however, when I tried to connect it to my Asus A8JN laptop via Bluetooth, it didn't work and I still cannot make it working. Guys do you have any idea, what the problem could be? One more question, where and how can I update the firmware of the phone? Thx L
just did a firmware update to the newest firmware (version 45) and still no luck :-(
can't believe I am saying this, but I will have to sell the phone if I can not solve this problem, because I sms a lot and eveytime receiving that warning is not what I like, so I really don't know what to do?
Come on guys help me out here
hai Cihanski, you know me from somewhere i suppose.
did you recieve the cable already?
re-installing FW probably will solve it.
I am also a lucky owner of the E71, but I have a BIG problem:
my E71 saves my SMS messages on my SIMcard (20 messages memory) instead of the phone memory (100 messages memory) so when I get 20 messages, my phone warns me that my inbox is full and I should empty my inbox. I also won't get an alert tone with new incoming messages (no tone and vibration) this is so annoying because I have memory left in my phone memory, but my phone will not save my messages there in the first place...
Can someone please help me ?
Thanks in advance
the MicroSD slot is under the battery, like the simcard slot.
it's at the upper right.
to transfer the photos and anything else, do it over bluetooth, just press "options" then "send.." "via bluetooth".
what do you mean by no internet?
have you set up the connection profiles?
you can ask your provider to get the settings for it.
