I am very disappointed in this phone. The zooming feature is unbearable..not about getting use to it.It zooms on its own and the typing stalls after each letter.The camera is awesome....but hey...nowadays we want a multitasking handset.

This week they called and said need to wait another 2 weeks for them to change the motherboard..
Considering writing complaint letter of some sort...
just got this phone and it really does live up to expectation. brilliant brilliant brilliant.
Hey quick question,
does this phone have the ability to read sms's for you and tell you whos calling (audio voice)?
ian, 10 Nov 2009thanks for advice. it works!Can anyone tell me how to turn off the position settings in gPS.. I mean i dont want any position (the circle red color) in the map.. Coz its easier to get GPS signal without the last lock in postion..
Gogo, 09 Nov 2009How did you do that?
Can u explain your settings on GPS..
ThanksMy last post got cut in half.
For my GPS settings, I used to have it as default, now I have A-GPS, Network based and Bluetooth GPS off, with only Integrated GPS ticked, under the settings for Positioning Methods.
Gogo, 09 Nov 2009How did you do that? Can u explain your settings on GPS.. ThanksWhen I first got it, I just left the settings at default. Now I've done this Settings
Had my 6710 for 10 days and it died on me. Unable to power up and no indication that it charges. Sent it to the local Nokia agent for repairs - 15 days later, still no reply or indication as to when I'm getting the phone back. Is there a factory fault with this phone?
I think some of you guys need to get your devices checked. The GPS either works or it doesn't. If it picks up signal in your home country there is no logical reason why it will not pick up satellites anywhere else. If it doesn't then that probably means the signal were you are is poor. This things works beautifully, with A-GPS, without A-GPS and without sim card inserted, at least for me.
@Justin Simmons - The search method can get quite tedious.

i tried before but fail.. it needs 3G to operate or to get signal coverage from satellite, unlike garmin which u can use without sim card inside the phone..
My friend using garmin at the same time outside the country, he get the signal, but my 6710 Navi shows no signal at all..
What a waste...
The GPS is terrible. I cannot find any streets when searching by "city name". It only works with the postal code or suburb name. What on earth do you do when you dont have a postal code or suburb name??? I can see the street on the map, then i do a search for the same street with the exact city name and it cant find it...

At home I restarted the device, then tried again with only Integrated GPS and it took just under a minute. It normally takes 15-20 seconds with A-GPS.
Can I ask how long it normally takes (with A-GPS), maybe you are giving up to soon? From my little test it's 4 times slower without A-GPS so maybe you must just be a bit more patient.

@bv In SA the phone comes with a 2GB car... morehere, i explain to you my situation...
Ok, i'm from Malaysia using my M'sia simcard which have 3g... So far in Malaysia i dont have any problem using GPS because my sim provider support the 3G, and for the first time, i have to use A-GPS to lock in my position using 3G.. After the first lock in, in 30 km radius area, it automatically detect the satellite and no need fer me to use A-GPS, but, but if i'm outside the 30km radius area from my first lock in, i have to activate my A-GPS again to lock in my position..
Ok, in my case, in Malaysia, i dont have to worry about A-GPS bcoz my sim provider support the 3G, and yesterday i go to Bangkok, Thailand, i cant lock in my position without A-GPS, bcoz my sim provider doesnt provide me the 3G services outside Malaysia, it does provide with me the 3G but with high cost... and i dont use it and i felt i have wasted my money to buy this phone to travel oversea..
Any my last question is, how can u use the GPS without A-GPS?????? and pls try not to use it within 30km or more radius area from your last lock in position, and try it without A-GPS...

@bv In SA the phone comes with a 2GB card, then with all the maps and voice files loaded it's a little over 1.3GB, annoying since in Europe they get a 4GB card apparently.
@Amr Sound quality is excellent as is the volume. It really comes into it's own when using Ovi Maps. I drive a loud car, and even with music on, I can hear phone calls, messages and of course the GPS voice
@Kaká, Brazil 6710 has 120 MB RAM (according to LCG X-plore and Handy Taskman)
@slacam You can get it from here http://labs.divx.com/MobileDownload
To all the people asking, GPS doesn't need internet, the GPS function is sim-free.
so far so good apart from the fact that the web browser is much slower than my old n95 and that pictures do not open automatically after downloading. In the manual there is apparently a setting for this but the phone does not give nd this option. This is frustrating-frustrating.
