Sorry, but I'll just reply here instead of emailing you directly. :-)
I must say that you have a good set of phones to choose from. Please note though that E71 is the only phone that I have among those, but I'll try to quickly compare those four phones as far as I know them.
E71 is my personal choice among the four. It's slim, fast, made of metal, has a lot of pre-installed software, and the best smartphone of its time (read: 2008). Probably, the main drawbacks of E71 are the very basic user interface, the 2.5mm audio jack (instead of the standard 3.5mm), and simply because the phone is an old model.
E63 is basically a cheaper version E71. The plastic design, lower camera resolution and no built-in document editor are the obvious trade-offs although there could be some more omissions of features that I'm not aware of. This was released only a few months after E71 so the two has the same Symbian and S60 versions. Take note that E63 has a few advantages over E71, namely, the 3.5mm audio jack and the shortcut for flashlight (the LED flash of the camera).
E5 is more modern than E71 and E63 so it has a newer OS version and hardware. For these reasons alone, E5 is the most recommended among the three. The only disadvantage on this phone that I can see against E71 is the slightly thicker and less metallic body. According to GSMArena's hands on, however, E5 doesn't feel cheap in the hands.
As for C3, just one caution: this is not a smartphone. I just like to note this because the others you mentioned are smartphones (Symbian). C3 runs on S40 which is used by Nokia's feature phones. However, I understand that this should still be considered because it has QWERTY keyboard and has WiFi (Yes!), but it has no multitasking of any sort (No!). We'll if you don't need a smartphone, this would be the best choice. I see that this is very popular in my country so I would say that this is fairly a good phone. This was released almost the same time as E5. Also, C3 could be the cheapest among the four.
If you need a smartphone, I would rank the following:
E5 > E71 > E63 > C3
Based on style:
E71 > E5 > C3 > E63
Based on what you can get from the phone against its price:
C3 > E5 > E71 > E63
But hey, these are just my personal thoughts in very short summaries. Please don't blame me for anything :-) Better yet, see GSMArena's reviews of each phone. You have very nice choices for QWERTY phones, by the way. Good luck!

E5 is newer than E71 so it has better hardware specs. This is the obvious recommendation because of that and because it has a more recent version of Symbian and S60.
E71 was released 2 years before E5 so has outdated hardware specs (although some might argue that E5 is outdated too) and OS version. This, however, is more stylish and robust because of its slim and metallic body. Also, this might not be available anymore, so please check your local stores first.
Lisa, 18 Nov 2011Do I have to have a memory card to download pictures onto my computer?@Lisa
No, you don't need a memory card to transfer pictures from E71 to your computer. There is a USB cable included in the E71 retail box which connects the phone to the computer. But if you have a lot of pictures/files, I suggest getting a microSD, because the in-built memory of E71 is a bit small.

I'm afraid the deleted messages and call logs cannot be retrieved.
dawnkenns, 16 Nov 2011can i use my e71 to play video on youtube@dawnkenns
Yes, you can play YouTube videos on E71. When you try to play videos directly from the browser, it will redirect you to RealPlayer, and the video will be played there. There's also a native YouTube app pre-installed in the phone, if that's your preference.

Please i have already tried but the network is still on edge mode.plzzzzzz any mor... more@pablo
Well, you can try 'UMTS' instead of 'Dual Mode' to explicitly choose 3G. In this case, it's either you will have 3G signal or none at all. If it's the latter, you might not have 3G signal available in your area. It's also possible that there's a problem with your phone's antenna. If this is the case, I suggest going to Nokia Care near your area.
