I just got the E71 last Saturday. Although I was 100% keen on getting a Windows OS PDA phone, but because of all the positive comments here, I decided to try the E71.
I have to say the small screen is a major bummer (especially comparing it to my trustee old 3.5" screen PDA phone), but you just can't not be impressed with all the stuff that Nokia put into this beautiful little thing.
Can't say much so far for the performance yet, as on the second day the memory card suddenly got corrupted (while retrieving files from my Nokia 6120c - major dissapointment). So I'm waiting for the service centre to call me once they have a new one for me. Hope there's no more glitches.
jaypee, 11 Aug 2008Hey guyz, can anyone suggest a great site that offers FREE 3rd Party Applications, games and t... moreTry this one:
It's in Italian and you need to register, but it's free.
It has themes from some of the best in the world, like Giambi, Babi (she has her own FREE download site http://www.babinokia.com/ ...
On the left side Menu, go to Contenuti Condivisi. There you can get free themes, apps and ringtones.
Another of my favourite choices for themes, wallpapers and ringtones is http://www.zedge.net/ (they don't have specific E71 contents yet, but E61 will do and some of the others will too).
Again, you need to register, but it's free and a really nice community.
Hope you enjoy your E71 - I've been playing with my mum's phone and it's awesome.

Hey guyz, can anyone suggest a great site that offers FREE 3rd Party Applications, games and themes for Nokia E71?
Arif suggested www.imserba.com, i would like to know if there are other sites aside from the one Arif mentioned.
This is a excellent phone, I ever got it has all possible features to support my daily office activity. It has excellent battery backup also. This is the best phone to depend on.
risto_, 10 Aug 2008i've had the phone 2-3 weeks by now. there is a serious firmfare bug - the Nokia Maps applicat... moreSorry to hear that u are facing such problems. The only application I've installed is the push email from Nokia.
Maybe u'll like to use the Google Map 2.2 for the time being. But it is a very data intensive application. Hope u have a unlimited plan.
Meantime, do send an email to Nokia & hope they can solve your problem.
well, I'm now just between HTC Touch Cruise and E71. I've had E50 and loved it, but now I'm using HTC S620. Win Mobile sure gives more, but Nokia E series are very user firendly. Question to the users of both. Does it worth sacrifying Touch screen and FLO to E71, and will it meet my needs like, a on u go MP3 player, messaging through Outlook and MSN, game playing, internet surfing, and for attaching files to messages and for Office 2003 applications.
Simply compare the two devices if u really know wat they're like.
i've had the phone 2-3 weeks by now. there is a serious firmfare bug - the Nokia Maps application stops working after some time or after you have installed some other applications into the phone (it hasn't happen only to me). You cannot fix this because the Nokia Maps is part of firmware (fm). and currently there is no fm available to install new soft and fix the problem (current fm is not downloadable). maybe resetting the phone will help, but don't know. haven't tried yet. So the GPS is useless now. Well i can see my coordinates but what's the point if i cannot see the map and my location. NOKIA PLEASE FIX THE BUG.
Call records- Detailed, max 30 days? Please explain.
I don,t find entries more than 20 in missed call log, dialled calls log or received calls log. How can we check log of last 30 days?

Can you elaborate about the quality of music of E71. I mean it doesn't have 3.5mm then how can it beat N82? What kind of Headphone are you using? Is the 2.5mm audio jack so good that it even come close to N82?
I am really amazed by the features and design of this phone. But being a music buff, kinda confused if it'd serve my appetite for quality music experience.
Please advice. Thanks in advance.

i got the phone few days ago.earlier i thought that it cant replace e61i coz it has small screen but lo and behold..
its amazing phone , clear screen, vivid colors , very good audio quality (and i mean it, used a shru headphone and it beats my n82 easily)
it also got dictionary app which is a welcome change.
overall i rate this phone highly ..it cant replace N82 coz of n82 has better camera and video recording quality but ya its better than n81, e61i and other n series phones.
ps if u like to ask any question feel free
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2008which is better gps? e71 vs 6210?E71 has Nokia maps 1.0 whereas 6210 is Maps 2.0 with google earth pictures as navigation background to give much better feel in hybrd mode
For camera, The front screen is just a view finder and thus it doent show a true picture of photo taken. Once pic is transfered to PC, it give s good quality image of 3MP cam.
hi this is rajesh from chennai avadi i got this e71 its veryuseful to me its very good phone for me thank you

Screen color quality is just 65K. u always need styls all time as fingures are not practical to use in HTC TYTN2. By far, this phone is best business phone made so far.
