Original_Jamaican, 13 Mar 2009AMIR,
The ONLY sound advice I can give you is that you can't go wrong with Nokia.got mine last week, and WOW!!! Strange thing is my nicely small ericsson now looks so large when i hold it. After 3 days, my hands feel as if it's been using e71 for ages, nice!
sleek, stylish, easy to use after some practice with the QWERTY and most of all, two hands are better than one in texting LOL
nice! nice! nice! My boss is now thinking of changing his touchscreen hehehe
apparently this phone has alot of bugs

To ALL the people who complains that their E71's battery run out too quickly:
Do you have GSM mode selected only OR you have both DUAL mode selected (GSM/3G) ? If you don't use 3G then there's no need to have it enabled. That decreases battery life.
Also, you can try setting your OPERATOR MODE to Manual instead of AUTOMATIC. When it's set to AUTOMATIC it scans for your network continously.
Also ensure that no programs are running in the background, not even contacts (smile).
Some 3rd party programs run in the background but doesn't show in the taskbar. Anti-virus and blacklist programs which block unwated calls. If you installed any programs like those beware.
Ensure that settings like WLAN AVAILABILITY is set to OFF as this scans for WLAN networks every second or so.
And as I mentioned in my last post...if you have a dedicated Wi-Fi router at work or home lower the TX POWER LEVEL to 4mW or even 10mW. ONLY use 100mW if you are picking up feeds on the road or from other homes in your neighbourhood while you are in YOUR house.
Other than the aforementioned, you can try discharging your battery completely until the phone cannot turn back on and charge it overnight. Repeat the process once or twice more thereafter.
If you all follow my steps I'm certain you will see improvement in your battery life.
For all those who wants more power from their E71's battery when using Wi-Fi please bear this in mind:
If you want a bit less power consumption you can change the Wi-Fi TX POWER LEVEL to 4mW or 10mW. It is set to 100mW by default.
The advantage is that the battery won't heat up as much when using Wi-fi...especially when you are on a VOIP call. The fact that the battery doesn't get hot when set to a lower transmission power level should obviously mean that less power is being used.
The disadvantage is that the reception is weaker and you are less likely to pick up a signal feed unless you have a Wi-Fi router at home or work.
Feeding from a Wi-Fi router while on the road will be unlikely to happen UNLESS the TX POWER LEVEL is set to 100mW. For example, from my bedroom I am able to connect with Wi-Fi routers from my neighbourhood when the TX is set to 100mW but if I lower the TX to 4mW I don't pick up at all and setting it to 10mW normally picks up the neighbour's signal but it's a weak one...so ONLY set it lower than 100mW if you have a dedicated Wi-Fi router at home or work.
If you have a Wi-FI router at home or work and set it to 4mW, you will see that the signal remains strong, you will even achieve connection speeds of 100% depending on how close you are to your Wi-Fi router. So 4mW is NOT bad at all BUT works best when you have a dedicated Wi-Fi router.
Experiment with the transmission power level settings and see which setting works best based on your situation. Playing around with the settings will yield different results depending on the distance range between you and a Wi-Fi router.
But remember, a lower TX POWER LEVEL means less battery consumption.

Forget everything else you said. The fact that you run Wi-Fi for 8 hours is impressive. Wi-Fi is a battery eater and you run it fot 8 hours so I would say that's mighty impressive.
So of course the answer is YES what you are experiencing is normal.
The average Wi-Fi phone would run out of power in about 4 hours.
Appreciate your battery power, it's mighty!!!
This fone is fantastic, although there are not gadgety fiddly hardware to play with, ther perhipherals are fantastic.
this dievice is like a small computer.
