This is an excellent phone, but it must run a proper installation of Symbian Belle FP2 to work flawlessly.
One of the last really good phones from Nokia.
I am not getting the keypad to type a new message or fill any other text boxes when i use the web or opera or any other thing. So i've downloaded Swype text and that works fine. How to fix this problem?? How to get my usual message keypad??
Front camera working in video calls only,but manually use it you can install front camera apps from n8fanclub.com its free or buy from nokia store

Yes, the issue is with the FP2 update for the NFC tag to be read but as of the time i bought it with Belle, it was reading it. I was trying to prove to SONIC BEAM that the phone supports NFC. Right now even if it doesn't read the tag on the manual, at least it can sense that it is an NFC tag, that is good enough. Also that one is able to transfer files is proof enough. Thanks
Hi guys,l just deleted and restored data on my nokia 701 cause the gallery was giving me probes,but now photo and video editing options are no longer available and l can't use a photo cause that option also doesn't pop up from an image,please help me how do l recover these editing options?
@kimbo,am using nokia 701 both the "FM TRANSMITTER & NFC" are working fine.i tested it with the nokia 603 and it worked(send&recieved pix)..but as for the tag on the manual i touched it,it popped up a msg;unable to read tag:invalid format..well i think it might be the fp2 update i installed recently..but it can share and receive file from any nokia enabled NFC mobile phone.
Sonic beam, 22 Mar 2013Dude this phone dosent support NFC@Sonic Beam. I assure you this phone support NFC. That is one of the reasons why i chose it over C7 and it is the first function i tested with the NFC tag on the short manual that comes with it in the pack to access Nokia store and it worked. Yours might not be working either because your phone has a hardware problem or because you did not activate it. It doesn't activate itself. You have to activate it manually just like Bluetooth or Wifi. If you activated it and it ain't working, then it is a hardware error but not all the Nokia 701s have the error. Mine is perfect.

Guys don't discourage others from buying the phone. Not all the problems you are facing are being faced by everyone who has this phone model. I have my Nokia 701 running on Nokia FP2. I bought it in March 2012 so ideally i have owned it for a year now and i have no regrets. I even prefer it to iphone because of its internal hardware advantages like radio, FM transmitter, NFC, TV OUT, USB On the go....e.t.c which iphone lacks and its advantage of using MACRO SIM. The only problem is after the update there is no front camera function but that is sorted by a third party application. After the most recent update, i have personally seen an improvement in the quality of photos taken compared to FP2 before the most recent update.
guys...plz don't buy this phone...it have so meny complint..automatic restarting and memory problem
Hi guys @ xlander l moved my images to dcim but l still get the same message from the gallery,it only shows images that l captured recently and they have no location info,resolution or size.When l edit an image it gets hidden in the phone somewhere l can't see it.
