e71guy, 10 Aug 2009i wan know wad is hack? i read bout it.. they said b4 u update yr firmware, u gonna becareful.... moreLet me tell you the flip side of updating. I agree that one should always be current in SW and all that. BUT, there is a slight problem there. THe problem is the internet. Nokia allows you to update the phones via the internet. I used to have a E61i till end March 09. When I decided to update it thru the net. I connected and read the updating procedure and started off. After about 5 minutes the unwanted happened. The PC gave a msg about phone going dead and not to panic and all that nonsense. I tried the procedure n number of times. But no go was no go. I went to Nokia Care the next day as the phone was still under warranty for two more months. They said half an hour. Fine. after two hours they told me that they were unable and wanted to send the phone to their higher repair centre. Fine again as I had no choice. After 15 days they gave a new E63 in lieu. (I still miss E61i). Fine again. A week later my son saw it and took it away. Thats how I landed up in E71 forum as I bought E71. Am very happy. But have been advising all not to update themselves. Instead, bo to Nokia Care as they use a box between the phone and the PC. The box downloads the update and only if it is correct then updates the phone with no internet involved. Much safer. So I still advise you to be careful with the update. As the American saying goes "dont fix a thing unless its broke". If your phone is working well, let it work well.
Another bit of info for the forum. The new E63 that I got was actually a refurbished one. The Sales and Service departments do not have any connection. They dont mix up their phones. The service people remove good working parts from the likes of my E61i and produce a newish device. Actually I am the looser at the end of it all.

chubbycat, 10 Aug 2009Thanks Vinay, btw, is there any free application for call record? ;)Chubbycat and all others,
Please do not waste you time asking for sites for SW for your phone. Bookmark www.getjar.com on your browsers. And happy surfing.
I'm still using the 200.21.118 firmware as neither 210 or 300 is yet available for my phone. Are there any other australians here who has the same problem?

Specially cheap electronics. And then there is nothing you can do about it except to throw it in the garbage can.Money is always hard earned, so spend it wisely.

I'm thinking about the yesbestbuy one though. But as Vinaty said, I should not go ahead and trust that site. The other thing is though they offer tracking numbers from previous customers. I don't know how legit it is though. I can't afford to loose that kind of money because I am a student..

China makes all types of products. From the fakes to most genuine. Depends on the company that has hired them. The Quality Control. Cheap means that it is that much untrustworthy. Chinese are the ones who started making imitation phones with no IMEI numbers. Now being banned everywhere.

If you use it extensively, then also it will last a long time compared to others. All depends on usage. I have to charge very often as I have four progs running in the background using internet. Hence the load on the battery continues.
