I agree with the opinion below on making the usb (mini) the charger too.... will be environmentally friendly.
Nokia step up to it...
Sandy, 29 Oct 2008Is there any anti virus software available for E71. One more thing my phone handgs a lot and s... moreyou should be able to upgrade the software. i encountered the same problem when I purchased the phone. got the software updated from nokia.
Im interested in getting the E71 or N78... any advice on which one is better.
The thing that is really irritating is nokias cheap attitude in not making the usb the charger also..... Their sales of chargers is high and environmentaly unfriendly as you have to only buy a nokia charger every time. Motorola and samsung have moved to mini usb.... Saves plastic as any usb input can be used.
short story: wasn't reading sd memory card when sim card was in and they replaced it.
long boring story:
last week i received my E71 and it wasn't recognizing the memory card. i tried another sd card but the same. both sd cards were working fine on my pc btw.
i performed a hard reset before sending it back but it didn't help.
next day they called to tell me my phone was ok, it's reading the memory card. i went there personally to get it so i can check that everything was ok. it was recognizing the memory card, they told me they did nothing, i took the phone home, put in my sim card ....and the memory card wasn't recognized. i sent it back again and told them that the problem occurs when sim is in.
they sent it back next day after they opened my new phone and did soldering etc ..and it was working.....for 10 minutes. then it started giving me messages "card installed" ...then ..."press ok and remove the card"....all the time.
i sent it again back and i told them i dodn't want it. it was new, i didn't even use the phone, it has a hardware problem and it's not my fault. even if they manage to fix it they should sell it as refurbished to someone looking for a refurbished phone for a lower price. They sent me a new one :). didn't have the chance to try it yet cause i left for a business trip before it arrived.

Anonymous, 28 Oct 2008Does any one know if the notes in Outlook sync with E71 ,same as contacts, calendar, emails, ...???Yes, Outlook notes sync with the e71
After using the phone for about a month my comment is good phone however the screen and key pad is too small.
If your E71 battery is weak, don't worry I have solution, you can try this method:
1. Boil a glass of water /aqua (200cc), add salt (1 tea spoon) and stir it.
2. Release the battery, and steam it (don't boil it) about 3 minutes.
3. After dry, insert to the phone.
Now, you don't have weak battery anymore!
Is there any anti virus software available for E71. One more thing my phone handgs a lot and shut down automatically is this a virus problem.
buy e71 if your classy. Buy n82 if you wanna look average. E71 certainly has more looks and functions.
As per the batter, E71 has a great battery life. Remember to give it a full charge when u buy it. dont go using gpd bluetooth straight away. you need to give it a full charge.
rest all, nokia pwns iphone and other over rated phones!!
Get nokia E71, end of story.
