I have been using this phone for about 7 years now (bought it in 2010 I think) and the battery just died today. I am sure that if I could find another one, this phone would live up 7 more years. The AZERTY keyboard is just what I prefer (I don't like the tactile screens of nowadays: when you got cold fingers or that it is rainy, it's a real pain to type anything).
My E71 went through everything: shocks, water spills, staying in the bathroom was I was having a shower, falling from 1.66 meters, being accidentally thrown over the room when I tripped over my feet, falling on the gravels (just minor scratches) from 1.66 meters.
Seriously Nokia/HMD Global, you should definitely give another shot at this phone, because we are in serious need of phones meant to live for decades, not just for 2-3ish years. We need it, and the shortage of natural resources, as well as the protection of Earth should be enough incentive to do it.
morko44, 01 Apr 2017brags around shouting your distcontinued but refurbished nokia e71 phone work like a charm ? W... moreWith all due respect, you are obviously an amateur when it comes to technology. I had the opportunity to use this phone and it is a very good one. People are buying smartphones at such an expensive price when they won't even use all its functionalities.
I got this phone recently (yes, in 2017) and it rocks! Unbelievable voice quality and battery life. Much better than my Motorola G4 Plus.

Amal Prabhakaran, 06 Mar 2017Will it support WhatsApp ?No , whatsapp stop service for nokia s40, s60/ symbian. If you want to use whatsapp for longer time please choose : android smartphone (at least that can run android kitkat), apple smartphone (at least that can run IOS 9).

what should I do coz I doesn't recognize the simcard,it just stays in the offline mode

WhatsApp has extended their S60 support until the end of June 2017. So WhatsApp should work on Nokia E71 until next summer at least. I no longer get the annoying reminder on my E71 when I open WhatsApp.
E71 since 2008 and still going strong!
Does the E71 have a stopwatch on it? an if so how do you get to it? cheers
Google search "Opera Mobile Web Store" or "Ovi Store" on Internet and open the Opera Mobile Store Page. Search "Opera Mini" in the search box and download it. After downloading, it will be in your "Applications" folder. Open it and you then will have the free dom to go to YouTube and many other websites.

Hey guys. I have had this E71 phone for 5 years now, and I have a lot of notes ('notes'' symbol is two yellow sheets of paper, in the 'office' section) in it, but I don't know how to get them out of the phone, so that I have it on my computer. It's very important, and I'm afraid this device will one day (soon) die, so I must find a solution to get my writings before it happens. Thank you. I can just tell you I know it's not in the Micro SD data because I can still see the notes when I take it out of the phone, so it's must be in the internal memory. I once managed to extract some notes by mailing them to myself, but it doesn't work anymore and it's long, and neither bluetooth works. Please help me !
