How do I know if my Nokia E71 is v300. Would it make a difference not to upgrade it? And the link the other person posted doesn't work to upgrade to v300.
This handset is fantastic!!!!. The Symbian S60 series software runs extremly well on the handset.
The overall performance is very gosod the handset runs very smoothly and very rarely come across errors, and repeated crashing.
The Camera is good considering this more of a business handset it does the job well. The ability to setup email is great i setup my hotmail account in 3 clicks plus 3rd party like MSN Messanger and Facebook can be installed as well.
The only issue i have found with this device is the keypad, its takes some getting used to as the buttons are raised in the centre.
All in All i would give this handset 7/10 for design an 8/10 for features and a 10/10 for performance
Dare, 26 Aug 2009How can i upgrade my phone's software to v300please find the link below to update your nokia e71 to version 300.
First download the software and then install it on your desktop. Then click on the icon created on the desktop it will point to upgrade software. I have done it and it works fine. Phone hanging issue is now resolved.
This phone has the functionality for SMS's to be read to you while driving for example. It however does not have the functionality for emails to be read aloud to you. Is there software available for this? The Nokia N75 has this functionality though!
Just updated my E71 to 300.21.012 using 0560657 as the product code as the v300 wasn't available for my original product code. Haven't noticed any major changes on the phone apart from the camera quality which is now a little bit better than it used to be. Must see whether the new firmware affect the battery life in anyway...people who're using v300 please share their experiences... :-)
amazing phone ....blackberry killer I MUST SAYY !!! love this phone 90 times better than blackberry
I saw someone carrying a Nokia phone very, or almost similar to the Nokia E71, but the colour is that of chrome/copper finish. I see that for the E71, it does not have this colour so I was wondering if anyone knows which Nokia model carries it? Thanks.
Puri, 25 Aug 2009I have had very bad experience with this phone. I bought this phone thrice and it had same pro... moreI had the same problem with 3 E-models: E51 (3 phones), E63 (1 phone) and E71(1 phone). The problem can be solved with software update. Since I made the software update, the problem never appeared on E51, but on E63 and E71 I made the soft update only 3 days ago.
I have had very bad experience with this phone. I bought this phone thrice and it had same problem, the menu did not open and then I had switch off the phone and then restarted it. Has anyone else also faced this problem.
