yea, i ordered ZAGG also or my E71. installation was okay. it takes a lot to get a nice finish (smooth finish) the only trouble i have was with the screen and the one corner. you can always rip it off and redo it as long as you have the solution.

How is the Email functionality on the E71. I am looking for seamless email, which means that the emails should reflect on the E71 without any effort on my part to especially connect and then do too many clicks. I want this phone, but is the email feature as solid as a Blackberry ??
I love my new phone -the nokia E71.still getting used to it though.Polished look.Sleek design. Looks great works great.

Mr G, 07 Jan 2009Whats a charm hole?a charm hole is where crazy people like to attach all these silly little dangling things from their phone !
dRMick, 08 Jan 2009I have just received the E71, and it is my first experience with a smartphone. In the short ... moreI tried ZAGG myself, it was virtually impossible to get a smooth finish and hence reduced the quality finish the phone has. It also began to peel off at the edges as there is nothing to stop it doing that !
Just my opinion for what its worth, cheers
The browsing speed is really slow, even though with 3G connection using Opera Mini. Sometimes it just hangs and does nothing.
Does anybody else have an issue like this???
Will having more than 1000 SMSs in my inbox have an effect??
I have just received the E71, and it is my first experience with a smartphone. In the short time I have been using it I must say that I am very impressed with the features and capabilities of this device. The pictures of this phone do not do it justice. It really does have an outstanding build quality unlike any other phone at almost any price point. It feels solid and weighty in the hand, yet is very comfortable to use. It just feels like a quality piece of equipment.
I have only experienced the symbian OS in the lower range of Nokia "Dumb Phones" but my impressions of the S60 version are quite favourable. The phone does have a relatively intuitive feel to set up and navigation, though some of the features and applications are a little buried in sub menus and folders. Setting up email accounts is very easy if you use commercial webmail accounts like yahoo or gmail. There is a great range of customization to apply to the home screens and it is easy to set up a work/personal profile. This may be a little gimmicky to some users, however this can be switched off to return the phone to a much more basic "regular" phone state to keep things simple.
The multimedia features seem to work well, reading all of my music tracks off of my SD card was speedy and without issue. Web browsing was quick and accurate in rendering of web pages, using both Nokia browser and Opera Mini.
Connectivity options are excellent and work well. I have seamlessly paired my netbook with the E71 via USB and Bluetooth with no problems whatsoever. Installing and updating software is easy and quick.
The only cons I can think of with this device are really hardware based. The stainless steel casing is very attractive to me but really does give fingerprints an oily smudged look to the back case and top and bottom of the front. I hope to rectify this with a ZAGG invisible skin shortly, which will also offer increased scratch protection to the case and screen.
My last gripe is the inclusion of a 2.5mm headphone jack. This obviously makes it difficult to use a standard set of headphones and the idea of a 3.5mm to 2.5mm adaptor plug defeats the ease and overall styling of this phone. I can't justify the expense of bluetooth stereo headphones for occasional use.
Overall, an excellent piece of equipment. I will make no statements to the E71 being an "iPhone killer" or a "Blackberry contender" because these devices are suited to a particular user experience ie. multimedia or business power device. The E71 is a phone that can be used by everyone, and it does a great many things very well. It is a 'communicator' in the best sense of the word. If mobility, connectivity and "staying in touch" is important, then this device is worth serious consideration.
Mr G, 07 Jan 2009Whats a charm hole?Its where u hang a charm on your phone or lanyards.
Iyke, 07 Jan 2009The phone's nice, just bought it, but i noticed that it reboots frequently even when browsing.... morei agree on that if you brows on net using the E71 browser it automatically shut off and restart..
