It changes color based on what time of the day. Read more about your phone on the net before going to your dealer and have it replaced for the nth time!!!

Anonymous, 04 Jan 2009Before you say E71 is first for anything, i suggest you upgrade to E61i first. Office editing ... moreA co-worker of mine have the E61i. I'm NOT impressed with it. In fact, it's too broad which makes holding in the hand feel uncomfortable in no time. That's why Nokia created the E71 to make the experience a better one.
I currently have a E51. It basically doubles the internal memory, RAM and CPU of the E61i. The E61i is slow compared to the E51 and the E71 is said to be the fastest E series phone right now...so why would I want a E61i ? The only good thing about the E61i is the ringing volume, it's really loud. However, all the official editorial reviewers say the E71 is louder and I have used the E71 as well as heard the E71 volume. I played an MP3 file and the entire building could hear it which is good for a real tones phone because I have been disappointed with most phones since the monophonic era seeing that the monophonic phones were the loudest. Anybody remember the CITY BIRD ringtone on Nokia 3310 and Nokia 5120. Now that was loud!
As I said the way I see it now, the E71 is the best choice for me.
I love Nokia phones so if I was to get a free Nokia 5800 Xpress Music, I would be happy too. Take care my friends (smile).

Just don't like it. It's agood phone though. I'm not using it right now. I think will stick to N81.
Hey, It is official launched in Malaysia and I just bought it with RM 1699, with 8g card as mentioned in the GSM Arena. I need to get to use to it as this is the first touch screen phone for Nokia. Honesty speaking, initially you will find it quite not user friendly but later on, you will love it for the interface. One thing I really don't understand, it can not directly go the musice playing interface, who can teach me how to do it?
