I have the latest firmware 4.50. The phone is really wonderful if you use switcher regularly to close apps. No more problems!
got my 7710 2 weeks. Found pressing right lower button does not close all applications properly, but switcher does!
Hi all and WK/Castillo
Tbe number of positive responses on this forum gives us and all other N7710 users whether we did a good decision in buying it or not.
Of course as the number of features increases, the handling capacity of the phone takes a hit.
but this is not that bad as some of the negative talkers say, Anyways these are all personal opinions,,
WK and Castillo : both of you are doing a great job in educating many of the N7710 users out here.. cheers to you again

Bokia: You need to convert videos into the specific format that the software/phone wants. Are you using realplayer, smartmovie or something else? Smart move comes with a convertor to convert anything into its format and its easy enough to use. The phone's realplayer is not a standard version and will not play PC realplayer files and instead uses 3gp files.
Mame needs to be installed onto the Device and not all games work on it. Look at harmonicode website to see which games are compatible. I prefer picodrive myself, so no longer use Mame.
Jonathon: Do you have the phone or are you just anti what you have read or heard?
GSM: Whats with the new advertisments and the draconian censorship? I dont think you can have one working well with the other, so please decide what you want, more people or more revenue as I'm getting a mite sick of wondering if my posts are PC enough and to now wee them with advert links in sucks.
Witchking, or anyone who knows. How do i get videos to play on my phone. I would be making full use of it if i could watch videos or movies. i want to get a 1 GB memory card but it would b point less if i cant play videos. Then when i finally found a real player file only the sound worked.

The Nokia 7710 is most useless phone that i"ve ever come across with.It is slow, has low battery life and in fact big for nothing.
Display Mode: Enter Control Panel, click on Display Settings and reduce the Brightness to half. This is supposed to preserve a lot of battery life if you're concerned.
RDS is Radio Data System and is a means of transmitting limited data with the broadcast (such as the station's name). It can also be used to allow you to listen to the same station while travelling through a number of different coverage area.
Visual Radio however is a subscription based system which relies on a network connection to download text and images to you your phone which relate to the music station you're listening to. E.g. you could see a picture of the band playing, the lyrics of the track and a bit of history about the group. Like I say, you have to subscribe to this and it has to be avaialable in your area. I think Virgin FM do it in the UK, but that is all I think.
i'm switching to SE P910i,7710 is worderful but i'm not satisfied with the performance.7710 = too slow.tired of waiting.
all i'm losing is mpix camera and sound quality when switching to SE P910i.just my personal opinion.
hey thanks arun for the info. i need to upgrade as it is 3.04 version. were can i get some games stuff.
Joseph: I read all that nonsense about 2.5 hour battery life if used all the time before I got my phone and it nearly stopped me. The truth is, it is NOT TRUE. The one thing that does kill the battery is taking photos. If you take constant photos, then I doubt it will last more than 2.5 hours, but this is normal for a phone. However, if you take a few photos (say 40), play some games (couple of hours) and use the apps and make some calls, it will usually last you a couple of days, certainly one. I have used it constantly all day (listening to the radio, reading books and playing games) and have only used up two bars. It does not have a problem battery wise (camera aside).
The phone is comparitivley slow, but that is because it has the biggest screen of any phone to update. It is faster than any phone I have had so far (my last was a 6600) and I only have problems using the PDF viewer and slovoed. Its also slow to open a directory with 50+ photos in it to show as thumbnails, but then so is my PC. Its, not blisteringly fast, but its not a tortoise. Its just doing more than the average dumb phone. It is at its limit though playing Sonic the Hedgehog with sound. For me, the best thing is the large and touch sensitive screen and the camera. The lack of software is frustrating, but I have enough to be getting on with for now. You can also play flash and java games on this phone of which there are hundreds alongside the 100's of megadrive games and 600+ MAME Roms.
Nexus: The p910i is an old phone and is past it really. There are more apps for it, but if you want a media player, get the 7710. It's screen is lovely and playback quality is definitley good enough. You can fit 2gb SD cards into it and fit about 8 full length films on that (iirc). You can also fit loads of CD's (about 80) and you have the radio and book reader as back ups. I have also heard the 910i has its fair share of faults. Friend of mine got rid of his 910i for the 9500 which he says is far, far better (he was bored with the 910 after a week).
Hope this helps. Got to work now.
Sorry i think i gave you info on the phone's availability.
As for the firmware, check your curent version by typing *#0000# on the phone. If it is 4.01.0, it is fine.
else you need to visit the nearest Nokia service centre to get it upgraded Free of cost.
