URGENT MESSAGE: nigel is offering help to anyone with a problem with this phone...so i know yall got problems with this phone especially opening the back cover..so ask me!
haha.. 5 days to open the back cover, took me 5 seconds to do it!:P kiddin' too!
what, you want payback(EF81) for solving problems?
how many do i get from Club-Siemens member then?!
yeah, i knew that, it's just i didn't explained the details like you do.
thanks for clarifying though!;-)
There are only two colors for this phone:
The so called "light silver" is some pre-serial production demo model with unfinished coating, which never was produced for final sales. There are only some odd samples of non-finished dark silver units that just because of lack of final coating look like "lite silver"...
SO THERE"S NO SUCH THING AS LIGHT SILVER VERSION OD E71
I now feel like im a patron of this place...people please..if anyone has a problem with the phone or just holla at me(say your problems to me). to the gsmarena crew this is the deal...if I solve like 50 problems...you get me a new phone..oh..and i'll pick the EF81
i have the dark silver. i like the idea of the light silver colour..it sounds like it can reflect one's image like a mirror in short. btw..how long did it take u to learn how to open the back?...it took me 5 days..jus' kiddin'
that's why i said it's a long long story, the news is all there in Club-Siemens.
yes, the dark silver is fingerprint resistant, the member of Club-Siemens who has it said it work, at least it's not pick up dirt so easily.
what colour you have?
mine is onyx black.
surprisingly, there's a light silver version, but somehow they're not release it.
about the benefits of joining, haha.. no you're not gonna get new phone, unless you're lucky like i do!;-)
for sure you'll get a good Siemens community there, where they willing to help you on the problems you might have.
btw, you don't have to join to read everything there.
alright..Master/Mister Paeijho..then why dont they just find another HQ for BenQ-Siemens? anywayz..i heard that the dark silver colour of this phone is finger-print resistant. well so far i think that is just a fat lie..what do you think?
LOL, i'm a Mr not Miss!haha..!
well, your question is a bit long to tell here,let me tell the big part only.
actually it's not sell seperately.
it's just Siemens mobile HQ was in Germany and BenQ is in Taiwan, merging them into one isn't that easy considering how far they seperated and they can't just fire all the workers in Germany.
so, Siemens based phones is produce there and BenQ based phones produced in China, that's basicaly why.
more information you can find at www.club-siemens.net/forum.
sorry, coz i didn't see a name at your last post before this!;-)
To Miss Paeijho..since u know quite a lot about this phone i have a question. if there is benq-siemens..why do they keep selling benq phones and siemens phones separately?
sorry, forgot to answer the question.
i have E71 as a gift from very generous member of Club-Siemens forum.
well, yes i live in Indonesia and it's not here yet, DGE said it'll be here around this month or next along with S81, M81 and EF71, i asked them.
lets hope it will!
glad i can help you out!;)
dear Mr Paeijho,
I heard that you lived in Indonesia. i wonder where did you get the E71 as DGE in Butik Ponsel SCBD haven't got any of it. I really want to change my M65 into E71. Perhaps you could help me?.... tx in advance....
good to know it's at a good shape.
btw, i'm Mr.;)
my previous phone was C75 and it SHOWN(remember, SHOWN) full signal reception almost all the times.
but no different from my E71 for the signal quality.
maybe you live in a low range signal area?
well, i'm not a hard user, my C75 lasted up to 6 days with minimum use, 3 days with hard use.
while my E71 lasted about 5 days with low usage and 2-3 days with hard use, that was running FW 32.
just updated the FW to 41, lets see if there's any differences.
Please one answer more.. Paeijho haw many days E71 working at normal use after battery charge?
Thank you Paeijho. I had a problem with c75, network signal was poor. Maybe could you compare E71 to c75 ?
Well now at the moment i dont have a single problem with the phone. Thank you so much. Mr/Mrs/Miss.Paejhio. ur a life saver.
you can download all the neccesary software(MPM> Mobile Phone Manager) you need for the phone at the official site, just choose support and download area.
yes, it 20 seconds max only.
if you want to keep it lit just press any buttons, it'll stay lit.
at first, i thought it's weak at recieving signal, coz it's shows only two or three bars.
but after i use it for awhile, i didn't notice any different for calls and battery life, so it's not a problem at all.
press "option" then "more..", you'll find the option to copy or move to the phone memory there.
if you want to copy or move multiple contacts, mark them first.
hope your questions answered!;)
