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...

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.

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.
May I know if anyone has tried sync-ing the phone with MS Outlook? Does the calendar turn out well? Thanks
I really love this phone. Excellent built quality, so many features, very elegant and it works just fine. It's the best.
I heard that the e71 has signal problems because the attenna in at the bottom of the phone so when you hold it the signal goes down but it goes back up when you put int down. I was just wondering if its true because i just purchased it and im waiting for it to get to the shop

Anonymous, 25 Jan 2009Have you tried installing the new software version 200.21.118? Rexton advised me to do so but ... morethe firmware update is something you can do by yourself. all you have to do is just check in the site by giving out your product code to see whether the latest firmware is available for your phone. even if you give the phone to the place where you bought it they will do the same thing or just flash the phone and re-install the old firmware again and charge you money. well if you're getting it done for free its okay.
