Ok, got this phone a week ago... and it's perfect. Really. No bluetooth problem, camera is a 1.3, so you get a 1.3photo, nothing more. The biggest problem I heard about is battery. Well, 50% display lighting, no pro-slide & key tone, auto key lock, average use per day (30min calls, 15sms), switch off at night and it lasts 3 days. That's my phone setting.
Ah, I heard about auto switching off problems. My fw is version 12 Variant A101, no problem.
The only cons I have found are memory (you *have* to buy a Micro-Sd, 16mb are really nothing) and keypad, 1-2-3 are difficult to push for me.
That's all, enjoy your el71!
I'm wanting to buy this phone for xmas
I would like to know 3 things:
1: I've been reading it is difficult to send things via bluetooth with other phones is this true ?
2: Does this phone have speakerphone
3:The problem with the battery life- if you turn the settings down to 30% or whatever- how many days can you get out of it-assuming you switch it off at night.
how do I get the battery to last longer than one day? Does anybody have some inside information on this matter?
hi there i got this phone the EL71 yesterday its wickid still waiting to get the USB lead to listen to music,in all i think it is wicked i dont like the camera though its not clear enough but in all again its good

Hi i got the Benq-Siemens EL71 for my birthday and it is great! Its got most things you need on it but when i am trying to get music from my m8z using bluetooth i acept it but then it says operation aborted. This is very annoying and someone please tell me why this is not working. Also i can not send or retrive MMS. Why NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Brought this phone in august loved at first a great screen and very good camera for the money, MP3 player and sound a very good. The battery is not great but by turning down the screen to 10% and turning off the screensaver you should get about 3-4days out of a single charge. "BUT" maybe i had a bad one but since the begining of october i have had my phone for "3 DAYS" first it was repaired for a faulty flash unit (camera) had it back for couple of days and then the internal speaker when faulty, still waiting for it to be returned/repaired (carphonewarehouse UK). It is now the 4th of december the phone has been in for repair for 50% of the time i have owned it!!
If you buy this phone you will not be dissappointed as long as you get a good one. Also I dont think the carphonewarehouse sells them any-more and maybe there's a good reason if they keep going wrong?
i just got this phone today, i dont know why it's automatic turned off without any reason, Mp3 and camera is wonderful, anyway, can any one there help me, plsease help me, thanks you very much....

Just update software to vers 31 and no bugs at all. Battery lasts for 2-3 days without switching off. Tested for two weeks and nothing to fault. Very well built except for the battery cover. I recommand Benq-Siemens to supply an Aluminium battery cover to elimeinate this small problem. On the whole a perfect phone.
