crown, 18 Sep 2008I just bought a Nokia E71 this week Monday, kindly enlighten me on the correct Blackberry conn... moreBlackberry Connect on E71- Nokia announced in late July/early August they have dropped their relationship with BB; so no BB Connect available on any of the new devices (inc E71). Look for a software/firmware update- they have just announced new/improved connectivity to mail apps.
Can any user tell us whether speed typing is possible on this phone? Are the keys tactile and responsive? Texting is a major reason for a QWERTY.
Furthermore spell check for SMS, e-mail and internet posts is important. Nokia should do some serious work on this, especially if the device is to be used by professionals.
The browser should have an option that allows for copying and pasting sections to other folders.
If Nokia is to implement video recording in a classy phone like this one, they better make it VGA @ 30fps. Anything less cheapens the phone. I was disappointed to see Nokia have downgraded the spec. Look, I would rather have a slightly thicker phone-eg 14mm- with 30fps than a biscuit thin phone with third rate 15fps!!
As for screens I think the elder brother E90 has the best screen in the mobile phone market. The 4 inch diagonal allows the whole width of a web page to be viewed without scrolling. Thus the E71 and most others become an exercise in managing what you have.
Has anybody tried Nokia's own e-mail solution for E71? If so, is it any good?? I understand that the E71 does not support Blackberry Connect.
The choice I have to make is between Blackberry Bold, E90, E71 and HTC Touch Pro. It's a tough one!
irfan, 18 Sep 2008please can some one let me know the difference between made in FINLAND nokia e71 and made by n... morehi irfan,
i too had the same query before buying this phone , and learned that the nokia e -71 and e- 66 are made in china and korea, hence the korean one is the one you should be looking for as it is manufactured under the fin guidance and the same is mentioned on the box as well. so you will not see a made in finland nokia for these two models.
the other thing being that in india you will not get the korean one, if you want you can contact some one in dubai for the same , i did the same in my case. all the best.
loved this fone.ive been browsing on the net with this device & its pretty good.my only small problem is connecting direct through email.so far....e-71 is good.thumbs up for nokia.
Has anyone attempted to insert a 16gb MicroSD card into this device?
i just bought this phone and i think im starting to fell in love with it. actually this is the first time i bought a phone with wifi and im really enjoying it. the speaker is also very clear. i would agree that the camera is not that good compared to others with 5mp. but if you really want good quality pics, dont buy a phone, buy a digicam. hehe! this phone is great!
please can some one let me know the difference between made in FINLAND nokia e71 and made by nokia which is made in CHINA i wanna by FINLAND one can please some one tell me hwere can i get the FINLAND one in MUMBAI and is it worth bying the FINLAND one (WANNA KNOW HERE CAN I GET ONE IN MUMBAI WHICH IS MADE IN FINLAND)please mail me back on firstname.lastname@example.org

I just bought a Nokia E71 this week Monday, kindly enlighten me on the correct Blackberry connect software to install in it since none is defined for this handset in
The phone is a masterpiece
I've had the nokia e71 for a couple of weeks now and it's definitely an amazing phone.
Things I like:
-Can setup internet telephone calling
-business vs. personal phone mode
Room for improvement:
-Camera (it's not terrible but it's nothing to write home about either)
-Headphone jack (your regular earbud headphones won't fit)

Hoping to get a E71 by this week but don't know whether to buy the white or grey one.Will the white one get dirty and become yellowish easily especially the QWERTY keyboard?Anyone any opinions as in which colour to choose?
i have a problem with my e-mails.i can get into my hotmail account but when i try to open my inbox it gives a screen that says to enable cookies and i do it but stil nothing.i must update the browser for internet? can anyone help me? thanks!!!
hey all e71 users!
I simply fell in love with this phone when I first saw it, really thinking of getting one.
Can anyone share what's the downside of using symbian rather than microsoft mobile? this is my biggest dilemma.
Also, can anyone share whether their quick office files are compatible with microsoft word and excel in regular computer? Do we need special software to convert the files, or it it compatible in nature?
Thanks all, please share your experiences!
