rain, 19 Jun 2009yup i just had this unit 2 days ago, i notice the sudden drop in signal strength if i hold it ... morethe antenna is at the bottom of the phone behind the chrome bezel , this is indeed a very awkward placement of the rf antenna because this is where the phone is supposed to be held while texting or using anyway
when held by both hands my e71 looses most of its signal bars and i am down to zero network or just one bar where it looses on even the edge network and continuing chat through im is a pain . the only workaround to this problem seems to hold the phone in a different manner but then typing on the qwerty keypad is not so comfortable .
i am tending to rethink my decision of buying this e71 . all the features are perfect and just what i need but if i dont find the solution to my problem i might have to let go off this wonderful phone . after all what use is a phone if you can not use its basic functions
@vinay , no it iz the general network signal strength i am talking about the data goes down with it aswell
Jhon doe, 19 Jun 2009Great phone . But off late since i shifted my house the reception has not been great . Maybe i... moreyup i just had this unit 2 days ago, i notice the sudden drop in signal strength if i hold it then back to full signal bar after placing it back in my desk. That might have somethin to do with the antenna.
Btw, where is the antenna of this phone?
I've bought this phone today. The problem is, whenever someone calls me neither the name or the number shows on the screen. Can anyone tell me why? Also I've loaded music into the memory stick, but it's not reading anything :(.....
Wanna use wifi on e71 install opera and then browse.Its faster and better
All those who can wait for couple of months can wait n go for E72 rather than E71.If I were you i would do that.

Phone freezes. Returned to supplier three times in six weeks. Know of others who are experiencing same problem. Battery life and camera quality not good.
Great phone . But off late since i shifted my house the reception has not been great . Maybe it is because of the weird antenna placement , whenever i hold the phone to text someone or reply to emails the reception goes off and it is getting really annoying .
Anyone else also having the same problem

AMIRCO, 18 Jun 2009guys,,,, someone help me out here please... i'm ordering my e71 today,, and when i called the ... moreAs far as i know E-71 comes with 3G.There was an option for me for bluetooth.It was like Box without bluetooth and with bluetooth.I opted with Bluetooth for a good deal.
I use Airtel in India.The Mobile office is Slow on PC but slightly better on Phone.
I wish affordable 3G services start in INDIA then can appreciate the internet surfing on phone.
All in all a good phone at a good price.
This Phone would have sent sleepless nights to RIM :-)
Just see the comparison between E-72 and Blackberry TOUR 9630 u will find yourself whose is the next generation buisness phone manufacturer.
Marvelous piece.Been using since october-08 -dropped once -got it wet in rain once-(infact remeber wiping of water behind the battery n all).Dried it for a day :-| Switched on everything fine.
Noteven a single dissapointing day so far.One thing for sure none of us digged all the options thru manual and still we come and comment here.
i use ebuddy sportstracker mp3 player videos cam fm office image viewer everything is fine
One issue is sometimes cannot get into MENU screen as it would be hanged i just retart the phone it would all be fine.(the frequency of this problem is 3-5 times in a month)
guys,,,, someone help me out here please... i'm ordering my e71 today,, and when i called the guy, he asked me if i want the One without 3g or the one with 3g,, because the one with 3g is more expensive.. Now,,, as far as i know,, e71's all come with 3g,, its not like its optional?? Or am i wrong? Please give me your advice...
