As I rightly guessed, the whole options work and I have now connected my 7710 to my PC !!!
All you need to do right away is to download the latest version of PC Suite from the Nokia site.
It works !!!! I am glad...and I am sure it wil make you happy as well :)
I am sure it is not the OS, so dont waste time in re installing the OS
It is all due to the PC suite. It needs to have the "USB" option under the "connection type" tab. Current version 6.4.x shows only the serail ports (com1,2,3 etc) under connection tab, which seems to be exactly the reason for what we have been seeing.
I am downloading the latest version (6.6) of PC Suite from Nokia site,I shall install it and then let you guys know of the result.
I am hopeful it would help.
Meanwhile lets see if WK or any of the others help us
Hey Sid & Arun
Even I have the same problem as you guys do! Well, I bought a new PC a couple of days ago. Win XP Professional SP2.Intel Chipset. I get an error message "no supported phone selected" even though the PC recognizes N7710 & gives a message “found new hardware” as soon as the N7710-USB cable is connected to the PC. And it would give you the hardware installation wizard & ask you to install the s/w. Even though you follow the procedure to do the same it will repeatedly ask you to do the same in a loop. I’ve re-installed the PC Suite s/w, re-installed USB drivers, tried to upgrade the drivers without any joy because it’ the latest one. I’ve just re-installed my Win XP without any joy in sheer desperation. This is really becoming very interesting. I’m still struggling to find a solution . It was working fine with my old PC. I cannot do any R & D because I’ve already sold the same. I’m really concerned about it because I don’t get time for all these in weekdays. I shall be grateful to anyone of you guys if you have a resolution for this problem. My expectation is very high on “witchking“& “castillo_corp”. My e-mail ID: email@example.com
Yeah the Firmware is 4.01.
I purchased it on 5th Aug
If you contact the Nokia local service centre, I am sure they would be able to upgrade it for you.
As of now other things are fine except for the data transfer between the PC and phone
I am hoping that Witchking gives me (and you) a solution for that...
A very slow phone. Hangs up every now then to software load and slow processor. Restarts only when the battery is taken out and placed back. Sometimes it restarts on its own when you middle of doing some thing (it did once a few moments ago and i had rewrite the review from scrach). Camera is very slow gives good results in day only. Excel sheet application: I have noticed that some complex formulas give results so its unreliable. Web browser: Small fonts are difficult to read. Being a new phone there arnt many applications available. Overall the phone is disappointing.
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
This phone plays both wav and mp3's, so buy it?
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 :)
