Now I am interchanging the sim cards of my two phones, problem solved. This phone is just too good to let go.
Why dont hold on a little bit on your phone and wait for E72. It might be better
By far my favourite phone. I've been through every smartphone out there & this has to be my favourite. The Blackberry Bold cant compare, neither can the Omnia or ANY HTC phone.... thi sis the best phone out right now.
NM, 20 Jun 2009i read the specs on e71 and they are like way better than blackberry bold and curve 8900. howe... morepersonally i would prefer the nokia e71 because it is much more compact and pocket able also you dont hav to be on proprietary blackberry data plan any simple data works well with it . also differtent push email applications can be downloaded to make it work like a blackberry .
all said and done the email experience is not close to a bb . if you can live with that then this is the phone for you . i answer to mostly 5 to 10 mails a day and i am happy with my e71
oh and yeah that soled steel build quality makes it home . only if the rf was as solid as a bb
the camera is so bad when using in night time or even in day time in low light..lcd always blink while browsing images
i read the specs on e71 and they are like way better than blackberry bold and curve 8900. however do u think(personal opinion) that e71 is much better than both of the blackberry?
thanks in advance!

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 .

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 :(.....

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
