e71 sucks. it often times error sending messages.problem always 'memory full'
The E71 was one of the very best handsets to come out of Nokia factories in 2008 and still is. So it is only right that we utilise its functionality to the absolute hilt and try and make the E71 even more efficient.
Here is a long list of must know tips and tricks for the E71 which you will not find anywhere. You might already know a few but if you are new to S60 and the E71 in particular, I’m sure this will make for a happy start to the E71.
STICKY FUNCTION KEY – A quick double press on the bottom left ‘function’ key locks it. This is helpful in situations when you need to press a combination of keys or in applications like Gmail which can be controlled via the keypad.
1-800-WHATEVER – To dial 1-800-WHATEVER: type 1800, hit Fn, then Shift twice, type WHATEVER, and press the Call/Green key to dial. (The idea is to type in the alphabet mode in CAPITAL letters ONLY). The alphabets will automatically be converted to numbers.
ONE TOUCH MUTE – You can simply mute a call by press the button between the volume keys present on the right hand side of the phone. Press it again to cancel the mute.
REMAP THE KEYS – There are times when you feel certain keys on the E71 are being wasted when they could have come in very handy. For example, the volume keys would work wonderfully with the web browser to scroll pages or in your music player and the mute key could work as select. Make that happen.
TIME & DATE – When the phone is in the locked state and the screen is blank, hit the Navi Button to display the time and date in a large font.
TEXT MESSAGES – When in the standby mode, hold down left soft key to read out new text messages.
ASSIGN SHORTCUTS - If you have a lot of applications installed on your E71, you might want to assign additional shortcuts to different applications by definying a set of keypresses with an application called Cute Keys.
As a follow up to the above tips, here are a few shortcuts that you should enjoy. I have highlighted some of the lesser known ones.
To get to a symbol or number hold down its key.
Shift + Backspace deletes letters after the cursor, thus imitating the behavior of the ‘Delete’ key on the computer.

Nokia e71 is the best
This is a good messaging device: Please find below its pros and cons:
* Good messaging (Even while ur dictionary is on, still you can type in english for a tamil or other language word) - Applies to Mail and SMS
* Active Sync is good, but at times for corporate MS Exchange mail accounts, it will force to Password Protect, you can bypass it though.
* Battery is good while on call/standby/music.
* Very slim and gives the best business look. You can configure your desktop as the way you want (No. of applications, shortcuts)
* It has Office Applications (Excel is good, WORD, PDF and others), bar code reader also bundled.
* The new releases are bundled with IBM Lotus Notes Travel mate application for active Sync.
CONS: (No big issues, still this is a great mobile and worth the price. you will really like it)
* For no reason, there is no direct way to insert smiley's., Since they have branded this as a business phone, they have removed the smileys too?
* The contact image which you can set for your contacts wont show up in full screen while incoming calls? Its of no use to give the provisions for contact image in this case :(
* By default, the active key is set to the first application short cut., i.e., for ex., if you have got 3 missed calls, then you cant directly read them in a single key press :( as the active key wiu ll be in the application shortcut bar, you need to key down and navigate to the missed calls popup to see them. (Requires 2-3 key press to see the alerts (missed calls, new msgs)
have had this phone for two years now, along with many others like the "famous" E72, E52, E55, E66, E63, N96, N97, etc....
It's simply the BEST!
So, if you want to stay with Nokia, DO GET ONE E71!
You'll never regret!

Confused buyer, 09 Sep 2010can anyone tell me which is better? NOKIA E71 or NOKIA E72... I cant decide between these two. Both phone are excellent, but I will choose E72
One of the best phones u can rely on in terms of everything be it music,camera,internet games & other applications...... Hmmmm E71 will definately meet all ur requirements however if u hav 5000 more to shell out from ur pocket for a 5 megapixel phone move on to E72.
i bought nokia e72 3months ago..and my sister is using nokia e71 9 for months.. i must let you know and aware that please think twice to buy this phone e72.. its really a beautiful phone..but e71 is better..promise.
price of nokia e72 as of september 2010 here in the philippines is 16,500. and the nokia e71 is 12,500..i decided to buy e72 because i thought it is better because its more expensive.but no no no....keypad is not good,it also always hang,yes, im sure that my e72 is original,with ntc,warranty.etc..logo..but it still hang,im suffering now,i want e71 its better..
the upper keypad of e72 is ''kawang kawangan'' style.i thought its better.i want more expensive to be sosyal. reason why i neglected e71..but no i cant believe this.i want to commit suicide now.oh my god.please buy nokia e71 instead of e72..its the reality.infairness to e72 maybe its because of its program.but thats not an excuse.when i will have 16,000 again..i want to cry..harhahaharharaha..
