I never really spend over $300 for a phone, but two days ago I spent over four hundred dollars for the Nokia E71. I can tell you this, it a nice phone, very good features to make any first time buyer like myself to buy one from looking at clips on youtube.
Iím going keep it short. If you coming from a Black Berry 8300 curve series, and use the nokia E71 for the first time, you may want to switch back to Black Berry or look for the Bold 9000. I use to own a Black Berry curve and I love it, but want to try something new like the Nokia E71 and still have it. I believe the Bold 9000 going to kill the Nokia E71 because of BB messenger and if you know what Iím taking about you going to agree with me, and also easy settings for emailing. Donít get me wrong, the Nokia E71 is fast and have great features for a sleek phone and I believe that the best slim phone ever from Nokia, but it would had been a prefect phone if Nokia E71 can work with BlackBerry messenger, but Iím going to keep the Nokia E 71.

tan, 14 Aug 2008Can someone tell me how to use secondary camera on E71? I can't find how to start it.Hey TAN,
This secondary camera may be just given for 3G network for Video Call and I think that when you try to call by Video Call at that time this camera will start showing its controls.
Just check if you have 3G support from operator and try to call someone from your mobile to check if the controls are displayed om screen or not.

That's what you get when you buy from a carrier.
If I were you, I'd spend some money and get an unbranded one.
Believe me, it is worth it.
Especially because of the firmware updates - the unbranded phones' new firmware always come months ahead.
And this phone really needs "some adjustments" in terms of signal and camera.
Hey, I'm really bad with technology, but recently bought this phone and was charged over 900$ cad for using the internet, I thought i was connected through wifi, but i wasn't. I know i sound dumb, but does anyone know how to connect with wifi? or know any websites?>
