i have been using e71 for almost an year...this was my first ever heavy budget phone....was disappointed with the perfomrance for first 6 months with problems like hanging, not able to see the images. dint have much time to read reviews and all to rectify the problem...also was afraid to give it to nokia care worried about data and the time for repair...finally got rid of the hanging problem after updating the phone sftware...also recently got to know many new things this phone has but never used....a very nice phone overall...
Talat , 25 May 2010which one to purchase E71 or E72...going to the market after 2 days...please help someone!Camera is better on e72 also for music listener as it has dedicated 3.5 mm jack. In term of look and built quality, i still prefer e71. E71 is cheaper too plus firmware is more stable

I do not remember the code off hand, but I got it from the Nokia Care. It gives you the total time the phone has been used. And is fool proof. Please find time to visit them. As regards the country of origin, I think that also is with the Nokia Care. Scandinavian Nokias are the best.
Waiting for a newer model sounds very exciting, but once you get a proven item, just go for it.
How do I solve the problem og having my E71 failing to receive MMS and GPRS settings read and saved on the set. My E71 fails to read the aforementioned setting everytime I try to save on it. It popsup the following message " Unable to open. Message type not supported." I gtried the settings several times after I restored it from my laptop. I even tried factory settings and all heve failed.Any help.

As regards a new... moreVinay, very interesting to know that we can check the usage hours of phone. do you know the code to get these details? Is it applicable for only Nokia or all the brands. also, how to check country of manufactuing. Is it based on details mentioned on battery or any other method. Just let me know, which country make E71 (or other E series phone) are better. Lastly, tell me, is it worth to wait for new launch E5 & C6 Nokia phones or E71 is better to go ahead.Thanks in advance for your advice.

Thanks for having such a high opinion of me which I do not deserve.
As regards a new phone, all brands pay a very small amount as profit to the dealers as all the brands have their own service centers. earlier the dealer used to bear the cost of warranty which is being borne by the company these days. Hence the low profit per piece. So, if you find a difference of over Rs 1000/-, it should raise the doubt antenna. There has to be something wrong. May be the country of manufacture is different. And that makes the difference. So, I would recommend that go to both the dealers and ask them to dial the code to find the usage of the phone. This code gives the number of hours that the phone has worked. Should give you the hint. Rs 13000 one is recommended. Rs 1000 will not matter much if the phone turns out to be the right piece. Of course, you cant guarantee anything in electronics.
Hope this is helpful to you. But let me assure you that E71 is the perfect choice.

Should i go for E71 or wait for new Nokia phone like C6 & E5. E71 is avialble in Bangalore National market at Rs 12500 & in reputed stores at Rs 13500. Should i go for Rs 12500?

Yes I agree but the virtual memory goes low when the phone storage is used above a certain level. So, always keep away from the phone memory as far as possible.
