I recently upgraded software of my E71. My Camera 'one-touch' key then re-allocated itself to a webb access 'Vlive' key and there is no way that I can re-allocate it back. Menu - Tools- Personalisation - One Touch = does not even give me an option to allocate for Camera as the manual and online guide says it will. I think Nokia is losing control of their operating systems and software as per this comment from another site: (Unfortunately I cannot recall the posters name now.)
Good luck with fixing that problem... It has nothing to do with a reset or duplicate entries. There is a bug in the Nokia E series firmware that prevents the phones from picking up the caller ID of an incoming call from your contacts list. I'm having a huge fight with Nokia about this and they have admitted to me in writing that it is a bug in the firmware.
If you store a contact with the number only and no international prefix the caller id will show up on an incoming call but you'll find your incoming messages will only show the number.
If you store a contact with the international prefix (eg +679) the caller id will NOT show up on an incoming call but you will find that your incoming messages will correctly show the sender ID.
Not all E series phones suffer from the problem but most do. We have about 10 of them in our office (E51, E65, E66, E71) and ALL of them have the same problem. Our network operator, Vodafone, has confirmed the problem lies in the phones.
Nokia has created this problem themselves... there are over 220 versions of the E66, each one setup for a different network and operator. Nokia is no longer able to keep the many thousands of firmware versions that exist on their smart phones straight.
The problem is only going to get worse as they bring out more and more smart phones.
Contrast that with Apple's iPhone. One version of software for the whole world regardless of who the network operator is.
So if I don't get this sorted out with Nokia my E66 is going to be the last Nokia I own.
Because I have just discovered that Nokia just doesn't care.
hey guys, can u help me?im thinking of buying e71 for me, but at d same time im interested to buy samsung i780..which one is better?can someone recommend for me
Using E71 for almost last one year. The best phone I ever had! Only shortcoming is the camera.

I am looking at getting a new phone and this one looks great, just a few questions... moreHello, Natalia,
U know, on the phone feature itself it doesn't have that so called "lock application" which enables users to lock certain apps likes messages, gallery, contacts and alot more.
but the good news is we have this software and currently using it.
the name of the software is webgate advance device lock.
i bought it just about more or less 15USD using paypal to their website.
yep. it has the phone lock option. but not on every folder tho :) a very nice phone indeed.

ethen, 17 Jul 2009Guys,I need help. I am using a nokia E71 in australia, and all this time i used to get my yaho... moreTry to reinstall / reconfigure your push email. I've the same problem with Nokia push email.
I purchased this for my wife. she was happy for the first few days, after the newness wore off she wants to return it and i dont blame her. Just to compose a text you have to go through three steps. Pulls a poor signal and the keys are not good at all. Sure it's capable but to much menu diving to carry out tasks. Go with a Blackberry, or PALM.
