I have used this phone now for about 1 year now and find it works extremly well.
It is connected to Telstra Next G in Australia and streams You tube almost instantaneously.
Foxtel is brilliant on it.
Battery needs to be charged every 2 days with moderate to high use but as expected when tethered to my laptop it decreases substantially.
Only problem i have experienced is that gmail drops out about 2 - 3 times daily but not sure if its a network or phone problem, no problems starting up again though (power down not necessary).
Phonebook syncs up with Parrot Carkit OK
Things I miss having:- (features present in past Nokia's)
* LED flash doesnt functions a flashlight
* USB cable does not charge the phone
* Only 1 snooze button, any other button cancels alarm. I have run late so many times because of this. My previous Nokias had 1 alarm cancel button and any other button pressed is snooze.
* Cant set profiles to time out to default when changed (feature of 8310). Good for Meetings and sleep etc.

E71 it's a good phone; it's handy, cam is good,sound quality is better; but I want to know why price is so high? If price is little bit reasonable in south Asia it's gonna be awesome; the phone captured the market and bit the others brand!!!
Thanks nokia for giving E71
I have the White Steel version and it's amazing. Clearly the Nokia phone to date and best overall phone of all the brands.
E71 is a good mobile.. but i think E63 is a nokias real value for money
the best mobile e71 for internet browsing i 've ever seen yet, but if the front Cam worked for video recording and image cuptuering.

it is because the ovi chat application is compatible with nokia E 71. you download Ebuddy mobile messenger , or sh messenger or nimbus from www.getjar.com. Sh messenger is the best. if you install any of the above you can chat in any network like yahoo, gtk, or msn
wish you a wonderful time
just go to www.keepvid.com or www.youddl.com to download videos from youtube, just copy the youtube URL and paste to 1 of the 2 mentioned sites. Enjoy downloading!
