I have a European version of E71. I downloaded the Nokia Software Updater (I'm a MAC user) but it kept telling me the file wasn't compressed...then I read from NOKIA's FAQ section that the Nokia Software Updater is not supported for MAC & only for Windows XP/Vista. WTF?!!
Is there a way to compress the file to enable use for MAC? Pls. help.
Thanks in advance.
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2009China language improvements??? Why would I need that in the European firmware?Hi,
I have nokia E61i Indonesian version, and it can't display chinese character in web browser, SMS client. I fix this by changing the product code from Indonesia to ASPAC with NSS (nokia software service).
So my wild guess on the chinese language improvement on europe firmware would be you can browse chinese language web site on the internet with web browser (and/or SMS).
That my wild guess....
I think they also added a really nice new email notification sound! In fact this is the best thing about the update!

How can you be pissed off that gsmarena provided a change log for an E71 firmware update?, yet the E71 is Nokia’s most popular business/email oriented phone. It has a large following that will benefit form the news. Like I said before you need to engage your brains before typing, that way you can spare yourself the embarrassment of making comments that are pathetic to say the least.
You continually go on and on about how gsmarena is biased towards Nokia without substantiating your thoughts. However, no one is holding a gun to your head forcing you to visit gsmarena, after all there are numerous competitor websites to gsmarena. Or better yet, why don’t you start your own website that will carry all the Samsung and Sony Erricson news that your are craving for, seeing domain names are now as cheap as $15…………
Please show me one LG, Samsung or SE phone with update, which improves camera quality, fixes many bugs and adds new software. ONE!!! Or... may be you can find one, hard... Then - show me second. I challenge you.
I told you once why GSMArena wrote this article and pointed you a link to SE update news. What evidence you need more?!
Next thing - to all who WANT LINK TO UPDATE - THERE IS NO LINK AND NO UPDATE IN INTERNET. YOU CONNECT YOUR PHONE TO YOUR PC, RUN SOFTWARE NOKIA UPDATER AND IT WILL FINISH THE REST. OK?
Guys, where do I get the updates from ???
Flames, 13 Jan 2009You indeed wouldn't know the truth if it shook your hand. How many times do Samsung and SE off... morei am not a nokia-hater. i even have a nokia phone myself! nokia N82 that is.. but that's not the point here. i'm just telling the truth. what's the point of publishing this pathetic article? they always make nokia phones "special" or is it really that special?lolz. gsmarena's a nokia fan site and that's an honest truth.
@Vacca. i don't hate nokia. i oh so LOVE nokia. that's why i have an N82 with me and i'm lovin it. however, this article is so biased that you would guess that gsmarena is a die-hard nokia fan site. you're the one who needs to grow up and move on. you're also bias.. a die-hard nokia fan. lolz
new E71 is a white?or black?v200.21.118
or no diffrent?
i just installed it, the updates are sweeet... camera quality has been improveddd !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi all ! what address should i link to update the firmware ? Anybody show me .
should improve on the alarm clock to be able to customise multiple alarms easily like samsung i.e. can select individual days and not just one day or week or daily.
I love fanboyz
Bravo Nokia! E71 is the most complete all in one mobile phone in the world at the moment so far. It almost perfect n everything just inside a very slim stainless steel thin body. I love it very much!

My cousin wanted to change som Apple stuff he has to other brands, but then he realized that he had to change or convert so many only Apple locked software and things that he gave up and is now "stuck" with Apple for better or worse, and he now calls it gagdet prison. They are so scared that people will leave them that they lock up everything you use connected to a Mac to Apple so no other company or software can be compatible. You might as well have a iphone, walk in a Apple jacket, Apple shoes and use Apple underwear, cause if one things turns Apple then they will find a way Apple anything that you might wanna add to home, it's actually kinda sick.

I was not bashing Nokia, I like them, but I am allowed to express my opinion and there is no need to say nasty things, as I'm not tryng to start a flame war, just help Nokia. Anyway, I have a Mac, and there is no software updater software - at least, there was not when I bought my E71. Have a beer on me!
Wonderkid, 13 Jan 2009Although I love my E71, the fact it is almost impossible (correction, totally impossible) to f... moreWhy are you such a n00b? Use the Software updater, hell they more often than not are found with the Nseries CDs or search google? Noob to the internet too? But there is one thing I will agree, the update wiping the entire device where as when you update the iphone it saves all your contacts and programs unless you're a n00b and didn't jailbreak your iphone where you will lose cydia and jailbroken stuff, but wonderkid probably knew that because he knows so much about Nokia and other phones in general. Nah I am kidding, he's a goof. By the way Wonderkid, get the nseries software and do a backup of your device, you can also copy contacts over, then update and copy the stuff back... better google it, noob. You're my least favorite person on here ever.
Does not have flight mode?
the best handset i've ever used, nokia got it spot on with everything on this handset and thanks gsm arena for the info about the update which im going to do now.
