The magic key application doesnt work. I tried it got the app then signed it ,then installed it and followed your steps and nothing happened my phone still has the zooming problem and the zoom bar did not get dissabled!!!!
bought my phone in dec 2009 about 2mths ago it started zooming in & out automatically i took it into
a nokia care centre for repairs and was told 3 days later that i had removed parts from the phone, thats why it was not working and i would have to pay R188.00
to have my phone returned to me and that the warrenty had fallen away. i approached Nokia Africa about the problem and was told by them that they were not intrested in my problem.

Anybody had a problem with this phone to the likes of the phone keypad being locked but the phone can make calls but its keypad lock wont unlock. The phone could also not be turned off by the Power Button... Anyone else get this problem?
Can anyone comment on the sensitivity of the zoom option ecspecially when doing web browsing?

I haven’t done it jet as Nokia has my 6710 to fix the problem. They tell me this problem is very rare and are only aware of 1 & 2 other phones with this problem, can you believe these guys! When my phone is back an probably not fixed I will try magic keys myself.

If you use the Nokia 6710 Navigator, most probably you will be having the zooming problem unless you are one of the lucky few. The zoom bar registers keystrokes randomly even though you are not touching the zoom area at all. This causes key and phone lockup. When using applications that support the zoom bar, the application zooms in and out randomly and incessantly that it is impossible to use the application. Among the symptoms of the zoom bar acting up are:
• Constant and random zooming in and out while using Web browser, viewing pictures in Gallery, while using the Map, and while taking photos.
• Keys randomly do not respond due to the keystroke buffer filling up because of random zooming keystrokes.
• Phone randomly locks up for a while due to the zoom bar acting up.
• Zooming happens randomly when you press the menu key, the call key, or the left and right shortcut keys.
• Sometimes the call and menu keys do not respond.
All they need to do is just enable an option in the firmware to disable the zoom bar. Problem solved
All the zoom bar sensitive applications can still perform zoom in and out using the volume keys or other keys on the keypad anyway. So, how to solve this? Simple. Install MagicKey by Leftup and configure it to remap the keystrokes from the zoom bar to unsupported keys. Problem solved. Here are the steps to do it:
1. Download the MagicKey application, search it in Google and download from a forum where you have access.
2. If you do not have a developer certificate, apply one from OPDA. Register and apply for the certificate. Follow the instructions there.
3. Once you have the certificate, login and upload MagicKey. It will be signed. Download it.
4. Install MagicKey on your Nokia 6710. Better to install it on the Phone Memory instead of Memory Card so that it will always be there even if you remove the Memory Card.
5. Once installed, open MagicKey. It is in the Apps > Installat. folder.
6. In MagicKey, select Options. Then, select Start on Boot. If it is already Not Start On Boot, leave it.
7. Shut down your phone and then restart it.
8. Open MagicKey again and navigate to the KeyMap List tab.
9. Click on Default KeyMap.
10. Select Click to Add Key Pair.
11. In the Original key field, type 192 and then in Maps to, type 6.
12. Select OK.
13. Select Click to Add Key Pair again.
14. In the Original key field, type 193 this time. Then in Maps to, again, type 6.
15. Select OK.
16. Exit MagicKey and restart your phone.
That should do the trick. If you use Garmin Mobile XT, you may also want to create a specific keymap for it because in Garmin, the camera key also somehow registers keystrokes caused by the zoom bar. I do not know why but if you have that problem, do the following too:
I've been using the fone for about 8 months now. Initially everything went well which made me think I made a good choice after the N73 (I don't wanna say more!!). But then it started. Fully charged battery, goes into power saving mode... GPS will not connect on a strong signal... Loss of signal for no apparent reason.. Going into internet browser, don't want to disconnect, have to switch off and on again sometimes... Going into messaging, screen freezes...
I really hope I'm not the only one with these problems. This phone is going to have a date with a hammer real soon if it goes on like this!!!
