Many thanks for answering, I really appreciate this! . . . but. . .
1) The phone shows that there is no memory card installed, so I can't find the format option. I have installed several memory cards (2, 4 and 8 GB), all are not working.
2) As far as I understood I will have Internet abroad. I only want to have the phone option (no 3G, UMTS, Internet, etc.) Maybe I'm a bit suspicious, but I don't want to receive a bill of hundreds of €'s because I was online abroad.
As far as I know I have to pay if I will make a phone call. If I'm not using the phone I will not have any costs.
Best regards, Jason.

Jason, 17 Dec 2008Dear all,
As said before I have this phone for a few days now and I'm quid impressed by it.... moreJason,
Go to profiles and choose OFFLINE mode which is equivalent to FLIGHT mode.
For formatting go to TOOLS -> SETTINGS -> MEMORY CARD and in the option you can find the correct tab.
Sorry cannot comment in 3G/Internet connections as I use internet through WIFI & GPRS. Besides, in my place 3G is not implemented.
Hope this helps :)
Max, 17 Dec 2008thanks original_jamaican...i have a next question for that though...i also saw the 24hr thing ... moreFor the battery it goes for 2 days for myself.
Although I work for a corporate company and my total call hours per day is around 1 - 2 hrs.
Although reducing the brightness gives some advantage as well. U can try! All the best.

As said before I have this phone for a few days now and I'm quid impressed by it. But as many will have in the beginning, also I have some questions. I would really appreciated if someone is willing to (and can) answer. In advance many thanks indeed!
1) Is there a flight modus on this phone?
2) How can I format my 8 GB card? I tried it on the PC, but that doesn't work. On the phone it says that there is no card installed, but there is actually. The original card doesn't change this, I still get the same message.
3) How can I close (disconnect) ALL Internet / 3G connections (at ones)? When I'm abroad I ONLY want the possibility to call, nothing more since you have to pay for Internet connection / 3G connection, even when you are not using it.
Many thanks for your answers! Best regards, Jason.
I am using this phone for last 4 months and the phone rocks. Only one thing depressed me is the battery which is not at all good even making the Brightness the lowest and swiching off the WLAN scanning. For skype/gtalk/msn calls use FRING from E71, absolutely no problem. The phone hangs sometimes and then u need to take out the battery. For this one, please clear up ur call resords and sent messages, it will help. You can also install the MSN where u can only chat but u will hv the feeling of using it in PC. The camera/mp3 player is really very poor ofcourse for myself its fine. If you wanna surf website download opera mini and enjoy.
If someone is aware of any YOUTUBE client info for E71, please let me know. Otherwise I can assist u in any other info you need for E71.
Overall, I swictched from SEP1 and I fully think I made the right decision. SEP1 was nice but the WIFI was horrible.
Max, 17 Dec 2008what is the proper way to go about the initial charging?...and for how many hours do i charge ... moreMAX, it's best to charge it in OFF mode and try not to use it any at all before the initial charge.
This may sound unecessary but a 24 hour charge will do it more good than harm. If 24 hour is too long a wait and you have no other phone to use in the meantime then charge it overnight for about 8 hours.
I have never had any problems with my Nokia batteries. Many times I get more talk time than what the company says I should get.
what is the proper way to go about the initial charging?...and for how many hours do i charge it?
Do i need to drain it first before charging?does it have to be turned off while making the initial charge?
I just bought this phone for 3 days, after using in for a while finally i appreciate for Nokia to build such a good phone even if i want to be honest, its not totally different with other Nokia Symbian Based Phone .
The main advantage are
- Very good of quality of the phone, its looked like luxurious phone...
- Very completed connectivity : Bluetooth v2.0, IR, WIFI, HSDPA, GPS Navigation, all in one handset..
- Slim phone for business oriented...
- Good display and nice sound
- Support up to 8GB Micro SD, mine is 4GB Kinston High Speed Micro SD and already have almost 100 games in it :)
- Camera is worse than my SE C702...
- Need adjustment to typing message
- Symbian........ i still love java oriented....
