just got e71 a week ago, love the build, after following gsmarena, and suggestions from you guys .. very solid phone.
i wish there are more US oriented software/icons (where you click and launch the app/site) available for US consumers, like weather.com, wsj.com, ft.com
i) i read about good battery life about e71 in this forum, but battery on my e71 last about only 2 days, well i do some web surfing and occasional gps. i turned off the wifi scanning, and turned it on when needed. i was wondering if there is other options that i need to turn off to slow down the drained on the battery. I heard the 3G sucks up lots of battery power, any idea of to turn it off ? i looked, cant find it.
ii) is there a push email functionality for Lotus Notes ? or manual synchronizing functionality with Lotus Notes.
iii) any suggestions on free symbian app ? i am looking for a better dictionary.
any suggestions will be appreciated. thanks

Lot of Software problems with this phone...
1)This phone is a pleasure for typing emails n Messages but Please refrain from buying from the Middle East market as the phone comes with the English/Arabic keyboard which makes typing HELL !!!As the English letters are in Blue, recognizing them is quite a strain on the eyes.
2)Please dont upgrade to version 110.07.127 dated 09-10-2008 which is available on Nokia website...
It has lots of bugs mainly making your Memory card useless...
a)U will not be able to refresh music from the music player.
b)U cannot set ringtones or calender tones to your loaded music files on the memory card/phone except from file manager.
c)Gallery does not open anymore.
3)Very few free Themes available which are suitable for E71
The Build quality of the phone is Superb although and you can even play songs while talking to any1..Both parties can hear the song..Quite cool...
If I buy E71 Nokia US version, will it have any difference with Nokia Asia Pacific version? Will any of the feature will not be able to use in Asia for E71 US version? Someone please advise!!
This phone rocks... I love the e71's keyboard, battery life, style and size.
This phone is one of the best phone that i'v used. i love it. More than the stupid Iphone i had. Qwerty Keys on this thing works like a charm. simple but packs a lot of bang for your buck. trust me. Symbian OS is the best OS for phones. Love Nokia!!

Phone is amazing but camera is hopeless... i had nokia E61i earlier, which had better camera than this one with 3.2MP
just got the phone and i'm still figureing things out, but can't seem to find a way to configure the email key (envelope key) so that when i tap it to go in Messaging and not mailing.... pls help.thank u in advance
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.

Hey everyone, need advice from an existing user on audio functionality. Can u fast froward tracks on the music player? If so, how as I cnnot see the icon for this on the screen?
This is a critcal factor for me to know before buying. Thanks in advance for your help.
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 ??
