im having a problem with this phone! if im on face book or navigating it always zoom in and out by itself. its irritating!!!!!!!!!>>>>>>
from the start right until present my nokia is giving me many problems , every month it keeps on going in for repairs and i am not enjoying the full use of it.
regret for taking this make phone
do not buy this phone unless to want to waste time and money
worst phone i have ever had
had my contract for 4 months and it has been away on repairs for 44 days of that 4 months
do not buy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The zooming problem on the 6710Navigator is not a major problem. There is a small flex modification that can be done and the unit works very well after that.
Ya, i too hold this 6710 navigator. were i found, zooming as a big problem fr me. It automatically getting zooms in n out during shoot n view of images n during navigation..
this is d worst phone nokia ever produced ranging from the zooming problem to the stress it gives in picking calls...most times, the keys freezes. i cant advice any body to go for this phone..its a pece of sh****t
Craig, 24 Apr 2010Mtn Tygervalley (cape town, south africa) says last month's batch was faulty, or something, bu... moreAmazing as I received my Nokia from there as well and it has been send back 3 times already?
I am not sure they know what tell the customers anymore
Amazing, I have been in contact with both companies where I got my phone from and sadly they are not willing to take blame knowing the problem of the phone and they still sell it to market out there.
My phone has gone in for the 3rd time. Does not matter how many times I tell them it cannot be fixed as per this website.
I will take both companies to Argus Action if they do not come up with a plan as this is absolutely disgusting. Never mind the service you get from this well known companies.
I think it is time we stand up and expose this issue
i hate my nokia 6710, its a nightmare.....for Gods sake,,,,,would you guys damn be more responsible for your damn stupid fd up stuff.....i hate my cell right now...its just useless

I am sitting in the same boat, my phone is in for the second time and has been at nokia for a month and half.
They seem to be sending it in all the time even when I told them to go onto this website where it states the phone cannot be fixed.
What was the end result of yours?
I managed to fix the zoom issue!
its zoom is the only fault with this handset, the cpu beats most hands down, the memory lets it down a bit though.
my zoom issue has been ongoing, following several handset replacements, and several occasions without the phone for weeks at a time, i found that the handset is reacting to heat, when its warm the zoom is uncontrollable, (warm == about body temp) any movement near the screen (ie whilst typing sms, etc) would result in zooming in and out randomly,
i tried hoovering the handset to clean it, blowing it to clean it, cooling using hairdryer, all to no success...
I took DRASTIC action, and YES, THIS WILL VOID WARRANTY! but im at the stage where i no longer care, i just want a functioning usefull phone!
so out comes the tool kit
(yes i am an electronics bench engineer, no im not nokia trained, but i can surface work on pcb's so i felt this was not a major task)
do not try this at home!
step one, remove the two screws on the rear of the slide and carefully unclip the front
step two, remove the slide sensor from the front panel and break the flex lead
step three, carefully trim the flex lead so it doesnt short on the chassis
step four, replace the keypad
step five, replace the front panel from the bottom and clip up the sides and screw in the two screws
enjoy the 6710 as it was designed to be used...
no more zooming in and out uncontrollably
(you've all had it happen!)
no more predictive text issues
(choices no longer get picked at random when scrolling through word selections using the '*' key during message creation)
no more none responsive keys whilst texting, dialing numbers, emails, web addresses, postcodes or addresses in maps, etc
(caused by the buffer filling up with zoom commands)
the ONLY downside is you cant zoom in and out using the zoom bar! :-P
I am now happy with my 6710!
well, except i bought it in october 09 and bought it due to the lifetime licence to maps,
for nokia to then give away the licence for free to everyone weeks later!.... that gutted me!
if you dont want to resolve to such drastic action yourselves, you can only wait until nokia adds an option to the firmware that disables the zoom bar!
Does anyone have problems with loud speaker as mine is not loud at all and sounds tinny

I am from South Africa, and got my 6710 Navigator on a MTN contract in October last year. It had the zooming problems from the start, and keys not responding. Since then, my phone was given to Nokia TWICE for getting it fixed, but after the 2nd time, its as bad as ever. Ive got the very latest SW update on my phone. What is NOKIA in South Africa doing abt this very very annoying problem. I sometime feel like throwing this phone against the wall!!!!!!!!

major zooming problem, across the board, across the world.
This site seems to have a fix: http://blog.syafril.com/?p=186 using MagicKeys to get around the zoom bar
In regards to sticking keys during SMS writing, I found this was only occurring when the messages were being stored on the SD card, rather than on the phone itself.
