sally, 26 Jan 2009y wud u want a phone thats tryin to be a blackberry. just get a blackberry!!this is a damn good phone but a blackberry will remain a blackberry... unbeatable
I have given up on this phone. I am using my old 6822 again.
The usability of this new OS is poor.
Searching names finds words ANYWHERE instead of just at the beginning. Every time it takes longer to get right person.
Anniversaries and birthdays do not display number of years anymore. This was good on old OS.
Backlight brightness comes and goes randomly. 6822 has an on/off button!
No countdown timer (I use the one in the 6822 for so many things).
Setting alarm sometimes sets for today, sometimes for tomorrow, always have to scroll down to check what it did.
Setting anniversaries sometimes sets the day before. Always have to edit to correct.
Probably other things I can't remember, but I couldn't be bothered with this anymore. Old Nokia OS was more mature.
LiT, 26 Jan 2009100.07.76 is my firmware and when i check nokia updater it says the same thing.... but no-one ... moreThe new firmwar is 200.something.
You need to download the new firmware installer from Nokia, and then run it on your PC with the phone connected over USB.
Your PC will need a fast internet connection, because even after you downloaded the installer, it still downloads a further 105MB for the firmware update.
100.07.76 is my firmware and when i check nokia updater it says the same thing.... but no-one else seems to have the same firmeware... im confused... any one know why that is??? .... ps. ive got most of the things from the new firmware such as the fn key phone locking... my phone hangs about once a week..
Everybody ia not a business man, nor a speciality except mails etc. Many buy being new model but its cam and call drop plus mini keypads are biggest flaws.
new pearl white cilor is horrible esp side rubber covers of usb and MC become dirty black within a week and cannot be cleaned even by petrol.Pity whole set looks dirty, any suggestions.
Hi guys,the E71 is the best ever Nokia phone i have ever had,apart from the camera,everything else is perfect from busines applications,web applications,entertainment pack,design and style,etc,Just perfect phone

Well I've answered a question or two which pertained to general E series. I have been around.
I must tell you that I have read everything comment since page one.
You know me, as soon as I get mines I will be resident.
I still want us to use VOIP one of these fine days.
Are you currently using any VOIP services now...I guess more than likely FRING...but how about SIP services...example a service which requires PROXY and REGISTRAR settings similar to Challenger Mobile etc.

Original_Jamaican, 26 Jan 2009Good to see you old pal. I'm getting this phone soon.ahoy there mate! how's it going? its good to see ya. when are you getting yours? hope to see you soon in this forum...
hi, how can u reset to the original firmware..i updated mine and keys are all messed up

I'd the same problem when i bought my new E71.But when i upgraded the firmware, i don't face any problems now. I suggest you do the same & upgrade your handset firmware to the latest one. I hope it works fine for you.
If u ask for 1 good reason to but this phone,It has 2 be the battery life.I have achieved 3 days with wifi & reasonable texting,e-mailing & video calls.
Although the camera quality is terrible (even with the latest firmware update promising 2 fix all that),especially in low light (where even my 2mp iphone beats it)
The browsing experience is not up 2 the mark,especially compared to my iphone & HTC diamond.Overall its a great buy,but only if u e-mail/text a lot.
anyone knows where and how to get the garmin gps on this phone?? thanks

I hope they have installed the new firmware.I gave it back to them because the phone was only three days old and under warrenty.i didn't want to fiddle about with it in case they made an issue over it. anyway, will see how it works out.
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2009do you think the firmware update will sort out the menu freezing issue? most probably it will sort out the problem for you. the purpose of releasing an update is to fix the bugs and to enhance user experience.
hansonh, 25 Jan 2009I heard that the e71 has signal problems because the attenna in at the bottom of the phone so ... moreYou are correct. Although the E71 is a great phone, it's one flaw is dropped calls, of which I have more than any prior phone. There is no solution other than as you say, placing the phone on a surface or in your pocket and using the speakerphone or a Bluetooth or wired headset. That's what I do and it improves things.
Hansanh, I had the exact same concern as yours before I ordered my E71. I had my E71 for almost 2 months now. I don't see any problem with the signal reception. Its signal strength is on par with my excellent N95. The 1st thing I did when I got my E71 is to check out the signal reception. I put my E71 and N95 side by side at underground parking and basement and they both turn out about same signal strength. I guess it only was during the first few production months that some E71s had reception problems. Chances are you will get an excellent E71 like mine if you order one now. Just relex and enjoy the E71.
