i am also having same prob.u got firmware 4.01? when did u purchased? its not available in delhi.mine is 3.26.do u like the phone?
Hi WK (my best pal on this site) and other friends !!
At last I have owned a 7710 now.
I have been doing all sorts of jugglery on the phone. One thing thats not letting me proceed is the Nokia PC suite software.It doesnt 'see' the phone at all.It says "no supported phone selected"
However, the PC has recognized the N7710 and I installed the necessary USB cable driver too,
But on the connection manager - connection settings, i dont get the option to choose USB at all However I chose the COM4 for the phone, but it still doesnt recognize.
Please can you help me resolve the issue?
the phone's firmware is 4.01 and the PC Suite is 6.4.8
kindly anyone suggest me to buy N7710 or not
is 7710 play mp3 or wave tone as a ring tone and alaram tone.
plz anyone tell me i am confused to buy or not.
The Phone is very big to be used as a normal phone for making or recieving calls. The best thing is that it comes with a free headset but still i prefer a Bluetooth headset.Camera is disgustingly slow. But still takes quality pictures in day light.the PDA funtion is very good. Although there are not many applications available right now. Few of these are available on www.my-symbian.com
It comes with a free leather case but in the case protection the phone becomes more bulkier so i prefer i without it but then scrathes could be a major issue which could be resolved by a good quality screen protector. So far average.
But as you go to its AMAZING MUSIC PLAYER you become its slave. It has very good sound quality. The songs could be browsed easily but they hang if you upload many songs in one folder so i suggest to have organised your sound files.
Images and wallpapers are good enough to buy this phone.The resolution is great. The biggest ever in any mobile phone.
At the end of the Day if you are buying this phone only for basic funtion i:e making or receving calls or smsing then this one is not for you. But if you are a technocrat and could do pay anything for a great Gadzet then go ahead this one is for you and could satisfy you for your entertaintment urges.
The Browsing feature which could open any site even one of those which an internet explorer of older version can not. It has an inbuil opera browser and also a Flash 6 player.
The major problems, occured before, at the first stage of the firmware, but now the newest firmware elliminates known problems. Firmware upgrades are available at your nearest Nokia Care Center.

You should be careful next time with High-End Phones.
I love this phone the best BUT after a small drop (my phone was in the lether case when i drop it), my phone is DEATH. Is this phone that easy to get damages? I'm now looking for someone who can fix my phone b/c i'm live in US. I know i can get this phone fix ez in Asia. Other than that, this phone is awesome.
i am think to buy this phone,but my frined keeping saying that the phone has a lot of problem as the softeware go down a lot and also its tooooooo slow,
please i need to know is it true? and what the phone real problem specially that the phone price not cheap.thanks
Motorola A780, E680i, Sony Ericsson P910i, and Nokia 7710, has many features but the most you should look at is, Motorola E680i, and Nokia 7710.
The A780...well, that's just garbage, and the P910i, is expensive for an outdated phone.
Motorola has Linux, and the newest C5 firmware, which allows the phone to read .txt files via Virtual Recognition and make your phone talk, Motorola E680i actually has a faster processor than a Nokia 7710 at about 303MHz. In other hand, the Nokia 7710, takes MultiMedia Portability on top. Featuring a 1.3MP(Recent Firmware) and EDGE. Processor at about 145-150MHz.
I have both phones, and you can't get enough out of the two. For more info, contact me.
EDGE, is another feature, it activates automatically, when coverage is near, you don't necessarily need 3G, becuase other features about this phone, evens it out.
great phone, but 3g is here now so dont waste yr money, gprs is a slow way to browse online
hi all, im bit confused as to what phone i should get.whether its the N7710, motorola E680i, motorola A780, or the P910i. i just want to have a pda like cellfone which i can use at any given time. Is N7710 better thatn all ive mentioned? tnx.
TO "Plzz Help"
Even I live in B'lore.I've purchased my N7710 just about a couple of weeks ago.You actually get the latest version of firmware installed by default when you buy a new N7710.In fact the firmware updation date I've got in my N7710 is 23-05-05.But I would suggest to you to confirm the same when you buy your N7710 with your Nokia Dealer.
I was referring to it not being possible with the 7710, not all phones, but thanks.
It is possible - but not sure with 7710. Earlier had Sony Ericsson P800 and opera browser for that used to automatically detect the PC connection if available and I was able to browse thru bluetooth! no GPRS was needed!!!!
So may be one fine day opera comes out with solution for 7710
You cannot currently use your PC's Internet connection to browse using your phone. Not really sure why people would want to, but there is "supposed" to be moves underway to enable this to be possible. Apparently it will connect to the PC via bluetooth. BUT this software does not exist yet. It may remain vapourware.
Web surfing wise, its about the best 2G phone there is for it. It has EDGE support so is faster than most and the larger and clear screen makes it actually enjoyable to do, as does the touch screen. I still prefer surfing on my PC though as its broadband with a 20" TFT screen :)
I am planning to buy a 7710. I wanted to know whether i can connect it to the PC and browse on the PC. BTW how is the browsing experience on this mobile? If anybody who is already using it can help me, i'll be very greatful to him. u can mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
No current updates from this phone is supported in the US, however, there are ways to, i.e. send it to one of the major Nokia Care Center in the Eastern Region, or send it to relatives from other countries, and have them do it.
A firmware is the electronic heart of a receiver(in this case Nokia 7710), where coded instructions relating to receiver function, and sometimes data processing algorithms, are embedded as integral portions of the internal circuitry.
You tell the T.V. to change channels by using the remote.
The firmware upgrades are new datas that improves efficient running of the phone.
WK, you got work and still manage to help, I just replied your e-mail.

You're in luck as I also live in Bristol (also recently, but not such a long journey). The nearest Nokia Care Centre in Bristol are:
Unit 20 Lower Level,
2a New Broadmead,
0117 927 3892
7 The Mall,
0117 946 7441
Ring one of them up and confirm they have the firmware and can upgrade it.
