i wonder how can i plug the memory card to my computer or any way to tranfer photos from my E71 TO coputer plz help !!!
sorry, can't help you out on this one, i hardly haven't do anything with my phone, i even didn't buy a MicroSD for it yet!
why don't you try to put your question at the forums i mentioned down here, i'm sure plenty of others will respond.
Hi there,Paeiijho thank you for your answer,I've downloaded some cool themes from that site.I have a question about video playback.According to the specification of the phone, it has to play videos in MPEG4 format, in other words those with extension AVI.Am I right, 'couse when I tried to play music video in this format-the answer was -There is no application to open this file...Have you really try to play such a clip or this format is not supported.Thank you for your cooperation.
yeah, the site is closed down due to the situation that i wrote down here, so it's a bad news for users that seek for official updates and else.:(
same as you, currently i'm running FW 41 and i'm pretty satisfied with it, even though not many changes compared to the FW 32 i've got for the first time, but obviously the speed is upped.
i can live with few un-anoying bugs, no phone is perfect anyway.;)
i have FW 42(the latest) fortunately, downloaded it just before the site going to be closed.
i haven't installed it yet coz i have asked for other users about it and i don't see any reasons to do it.
but unfortunately i can't send it via e-mail coz it's too large, 21.5 MB, while Yahoo Mail can handle only 10 MB.
about themes, i find it awful too.
yes, you can install new ones and you can get lots of it at http://themes.modopo.com/ , loads of cool ones!
@ E71 fan,
hmm.. that's weird, it supposed to be saved directly to the phone memory not to the SIM, unless the phone memory(100) is full.
try to master reset the phone, you can find it under settings option.
if the problem still persist, it might need a FW update, which the official ones isn't availabe on the net for now, maybe it will be back in the future.
the service center can do it for you, if you have any that reachable.
and to all of you, including people that read this, without forgetting GSMArena, this forums are the best to share and solve the problems you might have.
hope it'll solve the problems, good luck!;)
all that I can say about the e71 are good things. this phone is really good. it is very nice and it has the best screen i have ever seen on a phone!
But I have a problem:
Can someone tell me where is the option in the menu to save the incoming sms automatically to the phone memory and not to the sim card memory? I tell this because my sim card has only a capacity of 20 sms and the phone memory has a capacity of 100 (I am talking about the phone memory of 100 sms and not to the archive memory of 0,99 mb).
Hi there.I've bought my E71 just a week ago and I think it's great.In spite of its small bugs and errors, the phone is very good for its price.I wanted to download the latest firmware for E71 and was very surprised when I realized that they have closed the web site.I'm running FW 41 and I hope that someone can help and send me the latest FW by e-mail.(May be Paeiijho would help,he seems to be an expert in the field.)And one more question -Is it possible to istall new themes on this phone,'couse I think the available themes are awful. Thanks in advance.
Hi there, i'll try to answer the best i can alright!
1. if you heard the news about the things that's been going on lately, you must know the answer.
but if you don't i'll tell you.
BenQ is decided to close the German division that produce phones that designed purely by Siemens(such as E71,EL71, EF81 and so on) because of the inevitable loss they suffered.
the insolvency team failed to get the qualified investor to save the division, so it's already closed by the end of january this year.
as the result, no more phones from there anymore including the phones i mentioned above, but i believe that they have enough stocks to sell.
2. IMO it's not slow at all, but not so flashy either, acceptable for me.
it's drained quite amount of battery life when i played the pre-installed games.
3. i don't know this one.
4. my E71 was a gift from the generous senior member at Club-Siemens forum, so i get it for free, i only pay the taxes in my country(Indonesia).
the phone itself is built in the already closed factory in Germany.
to check for the availability and price go here: http://www.germanmobilephone.com/
the shop is reliable, my fellow countryman have bought some SXG75 from there with no problem.
conclusion, i'm very satisfied with this phone, even though it's come with some minor drawbacks.
there's no such a perfect phone anyway.;)
if you a Siemens fan like me, you've got my recommendation to get this beauty.
hope this help you to decide.:-)
The features of this phone seems great! This model also seems to have got around some typical Siemens problems. Would love to buy this phone sometime. Can anyone please let me know the following?
1. Is this set still in production?
2. How is the operating speed of this phone? I have CX75 and it is awfully slow for Java apps. Programs take really long to load. How does it score in this area?
3. What processor does it use? What's the clock speed?
4. From which country did you buy it and how much did you pay for it?
If you don't have the answers to all the questions that is fine; please let me know the answer you know. Thanks!
well, sorry for that, but i NEVER experienced such things.
be patience, maybe all you need is firmware upgrade.
unfortunately the download site isn't available anymore for now, could come back later.
but if you want, i can send the latest FW to your e-mail.
or you can do it at the service centre for free, it's still in guarantee right?!
what FW are you running now?
i'v used this fon for 3months. it is USELESS! it always hangs,camera fails,goes of occasionaly!GOSH!i advise u NOT to buy this handset,for your own good.
Beautiful phone, very good for work and entertainment. Large display, addressbook, organiser. Super sound. And possible to improve details by patches :-)
Phone is quick and stable.
I'm sad that Siemens era is over. If they have produced phone like this allways, they would never have problems.
what FW are you running now?
i have no problem with the internet.
could be the sofware(FW/FirmWare) issue/bug.
the newest FW on the official site is FW 42, upgrade your phone might solve the problem.
to take out the SIM card?
simply by sliding it out from the slot.
i find it hard to do it too, use your nail to lift and pull it out.
me again with more problems. Nigel, how do i remove my SIM card? and the fingerprint issue on the dark silver version? fake. it collects fingerprints. but i have to admit. its still a beautiful phone
i have the e71 wonderful phone. i just cannot be able to access internet on it and i have all the settings in place. can anyone help? the website isnt.
To be able to use FM Radio you have to connect the headphones, because the cable of the headphones acts like an FM antenna.
No antenna - no radio, same as in all other mobile phones...
well, there's a lot of online shops that sells this beauty, www.germanmobilephone.com is one of them, you can even get lower price if you search for other shops.
where do you live anyway?
Hey guys, in spite of all that happened with Benq-Siemens... my fingers still can't give in to any other manufacturer's device. can't find any E71 at any shop...
so tell me guys...(those who are blissed of having it)... how's going with you?!
