Between the two you mentioned, I feel that E71 is a better phone unless you are intending to use it for business purposes. In that case BB would be good as the company would be paying for BB services. If you want to pay (through your nose) for these services then it is fine, otherwise E71 is cheap to run and has all the facilities that BB provides (at those exorbitant rates).
Dear All, OLet me know how to install third party app. and themes in E-71 because it shows some cer. prob.
[deleted post]E71 for aesthetical reason. Very nice and give me satisfaction every time I hold E71. Also for presence of GPS.
E63 for economical reason. If u don't care about look. In short, E71 smart inside and out. E63 function over look.
Blackberry is efficient for corporate usage. E71 is efficient for personal usage also it's okay for corporate.
If you sweat a lot, forget this phone. Twice at the gym I answered the call and the phone started mal functioning immediately. The sweat enters the internal keypad and rust's the contact points. Not as rough and tough as the e51 or 6300.Apart from that excellent phone.

Do not go by all the rumours. If I hang my phone with the charging cable or twist it out of shape, naturally it will break. Just leave it loose. Do not wrap it around the charger. And do not leave it plugged in all the time whether the phone is connected or not. Anyway, a new charger costs just $2 in India. usable everywhere with 100 -220 volts range.
i own this phone and though the overall is ok, there are imho some flaws at the os level, the cut and paste function is not implemented homogeneically on apps which may benefit of it, sometimes i find annoying copying and pasting from a sms to a note, schedule entry or phonebook, not to mention mail formating is not very pleasant and integration with exchange is buggy, the device keeps asking my password and having problems connecting to service, this phone was a blackberry replacement and let me tell you sometimes id like to go back. Its sad to see great design and hardware eclipsed by an aging OS like symbian is, my next phone will likely be an android, rim or webos.
VinayT , 13 May 2010yes it can play 3gp and mp4 files.
i would like to ask you about the charger. is it durable and long lasting? i've heard that the charger easily breaks down as it has a thin cord. my charger works perfectly fine but i just want to know. thanks a lot again!

Gunjan, 11 May 2010Hi Vinay and others,
My E71 is continiously showing that wifi is on with wifi sybol alongwi... morehi gunjan!
well you have got good knowledge of wifi symbols, well..since if it shows you that your phone is connected then it is!!!it is actually beacause of some process ran by some recently installedd application, that uses internet in general, but the problem arises when the process keeps running even after u have closed the application! you might be seeing a connection active in the connection manager, and even after ending it it may reconnecct again...or you may not be seeing any such thing in the conn. manager but the reason is this.
all you need to do is to calculate the time since it is happening nad to uninstall the application you have installed in that meantime...
if this is not the problem !!
make a backup of your essentials and try a restore!!
same thing happened to my e71 wen i installed an application by nokia to uplaod your photos...may b because of incompatibility it happnd but it got fine , soon after the uninstallation.
Abi, 13 May 2010Is it true that 3gp video format can't play on E71? Thanks.in some cases it does play like an audio file(like shoot from some other phone)...but it plays std 3gp files normally(sply the converted ones)!!!
blazing-ice, 12 May 2010pls is there any application out there that i can use to rotate the screen of my nokia e71?
a... morehi dear!
if you have not filled it with important data or your data doesnt matter to you , then you can format it..!!
all you need to do is..just ewitch the phone off and take SIM card and MMC out and press '*' key , '3' key , dial key along with the switch on/off key to switch on...got it??
all the four keys together..for around 20 secs or till you hear nokia tune or see the light on...your device will be formatted..making it absoulutely new again...with none of your old user files left..!!
ya before it you would like to try this...
-enter your phones 15 digit imei no
-click on generate
it willgive you a 10 digit code you try placing it at the window where it is asking you the lock code..
ok..now try '99999' as code or default code '12345'...surely any one will..if not then format it if you can afford to loose your data...bu dont forget to remove SIM an MMC cards and begin from 'the phone in switch off state'..
i need to set a weekly schedule for Monday & Wed throughout the year, where do I go on my settings? I've tried bit I'm missing something.
my phone is agift from my uncle but he took the memory card so i used mine which aleardy contain music files however when i looked for it i did not find although memory data says its present .please help me!!!!
