Or your SIM might just be in less than excellent condition.

I am 35 but cannot type an sms becuz too small and fedup ad uncomfortable bought pearl white 420$ when E63 is launched but hopless to use. It is smart but not pratical fate will be same as E61, much better but too broad to hold.

Plus the 'O' is in the wrong place - over to the right, looks almost impossible to dial a number, particularly international number with '+' which is only thing prevent me from buying this phone right now
bayt, 23 Jan 2009where can i download the latest software for it?? as my phone sometimes tends to freeze on me... morego to nokia.com, find the phone e71 and download the nokia software updater, its a program that will download the latest version and install in on your phone.... important: make a copy of your phone with nokia pc suit, because otherwise you will lose all your contats, sms, email, settings, ect... its easy to make a copy and then getting all the data back, but its so f* annoying to lose everything....
Searching for name from telephone no. is possible from Search: Internet and my content.
Though it doesnt give accurate info.

as my phone sometimes tends to freeze on me and i took it back and changed it for a new one and its doing the same problem i read someone wrote you have to update the software
Thanks a lot for your input guys. I'm not really into listening music on the phone, I have my ipod for that. And the E71's screen is big enaugh for my needs, but I still have a question about playing videos. I read somewhere that the E71 lacks HW grafic accelerator (I hope that the right term) hence the video playback is not that good. Do programs like SmartMovie (which support .avi format)work on this phone? Thanks.
giorgio, 21 Jan 2009I would like to buy a new phone and I narrowed down my choices to E71 and 5800. Which one woul... moreGiorgio, that depend of what do you need. In case you need phone to entertain you and if you don't mind touch screen, go for 5800!
But if you want something serious and more sofisticated go for E71.
Neha, 22 Jan 2009Can i find out a contact person Name by typing the number in contacts? NEHAYes, you can, it's called smart search, it so easy to use and to find any contact you need!
I don't think that screen is to small 2.3 inch is more than enough, also you can't compare Nokia 5800 which is touch screen model with E71.
I do own this phone for the last couple of weeks,fast interface, one of the fastest ever symbian model (I did own N95, N73, Nokia 6600 (one of the first symbian models))many features to keep you busy. And one of my favorite things about E71 is that battery last at least 3-4 days with regular use, for example sending 30-50 messages a day, 10 calls a day for about 5 min talk or longer, browsing for 30 min a day...playing games while traveling in underground...all in all great performer.
In case you don't want to spend so much money on E71, there is alternative, buy E66!
