I live in Cape Town - and need to say this - the GPS functionality experience is superb
For any one that wants a 100% idea what the experience will be on getting a phone - just read the official review.
I have had the phone for three days now - and I have never come across a reviews of a phone that is so correct - both on advantages and disadvantages.
I had SE P1 - so I know how a decent phone shoul handle - and this one rocks!
anion123, 12 Feb 2009I got my E71 yesterday!!!!!I'm so happy with the handset.Coming from a N70 Music Edition I hav... moreWhat type of poach do you want other than the one supplied? Surely that is sufficient?
I also live in Cape Town - received my phone two days ago - had SE P1i - which according to me is still one of the best ever smart phones available
The E71 is an extremely able phone - not doing that much more than the P1 - although it is a newer phone - thus doing some features slightly better.
If the P1i was 8 - this phone is 9,5
I am a very fussy person - and believe the P1i is a fantastic phone - thus for me to say this must mean the E71 is very competent indeed!
e71-3 this model is not suitable use in asia,after unlock,will become 3g no funtion....
Can a skype app. be loaded onto the phone to make calls where there is no cell signal? As in a VOIP call via wifi?
Please help me i live in nigeria i just got my e71 one week now any time i browse the internet the phone get too hot dat i cant hold it wit my hands again.please help me
I got my E71 yesterday!!!!!I'm so happy with the handset.Coming from a N70 Music Edition I have to say it's easy to adjust.Typing is still a bit slow,as I could type on my N70 without looking at my fingers, but I really wanted a QWERTY phone.The keys are just big enough for me as a female, but I'm sure some men might have difficulties with it. The camera is quite good and the music player as well. I love the fact that it came with a 2Gig memory card, so I'm set for memory.
I would advise anybody to get the phone, but just be ware that it really loves fingerprints!!! Apparently in South-Africa there is no pouch available yet, so I'm using the pouch supplied.
If anybody knows where I can get a cover/pouch for it in Cape Town,South Africa, I would appreciate it. What a great phone!!
Today i tried to down load the Bible on Mobile thru USB connection to PC. I saved the file under office.
but I cannot read the document. Can anyone help please.
Anonymous, 12 Feb 2009hello anyone what is the newest update software for u.s.? thanks200.21.118 dated 27-11-2008
in response to PG!
If u live in the UK go to the nokia website & then click on to customer care. Download the form for 'repairs' fill it out and post it for free to the address they've given! I know bcos i had a problem with my E71. I simply sent it off to nokia freepost & they promise to get back to you within 14 days. Just give an explanation on the form of the problem & as the E71 has a 2 year guarantee it won't cost you anything. I got mine back after 8 days. They sent me a new handset (ie. one with a new IMEI no.) & it had the latest software to.
& after getting it sorted i still think my phones brilliant!
I hope that helps!
viz, 11 Feb 2009Manufacturing defect. Get it replaced.Thanks Viz, the issue is that I have lost my guarantee on the phone. It was purchased 4 months ago & apparently it had a three month guarantee. I rarely used it then but when I started using it regularly I discovered the overheating & battery drainaige problem. Not sure if I can get it replaced. Any suggestions
A quality machine, from looks to the features its great. I had to choose between the Iphone, Curve, Onmia. In the end it was a no brainer the E71 was head and shoulders above the rest, good looking and easy to use.
I am not able to access my inotes with full features.
Can u anyone tell me how i can configure inotes on my E71 to work with full features
WINURA my friend you are so scarce these days.
I have in my possession an E71 for the day. I am still awaiting the delivery of my very own. I must say I'm impressed overall. The volume is loud...not sure if it's louder than the E61i as some people claim.
One of my concerns for any phone is the loudspeaker volume during calls and the E71 doesn't disappoint. It's not as loud as a Blackberry but loud enough to hear in basically any environment.
Winura, which firmware do you currently have ? Have you upgraded to the latest 200.xx.xx ?
To ALL you E71 owners:
First of all which firmware was the first firmware ? At first I was wondering about 100.07.06 being the first version but that was released August 6, 2008 and the E71 was released in July so there was an earlier firmware. If any you people purchased your E71 in July and haven't upgraded your firmware since, please check and tell me the version number.
Secondly, to who all you people who have used both the E71-1 (European model) and E71-2 (American model)...does the European E71 ringing volume, loudspeaker volume and overall audio volume seems louder than the American one ?
Thank you all.
