I used this phone for 2 years and 3 months... Now it has gone dead! - Nokia N70 white screen problem! This is a very common problem. Any of you who wanna buy just google "Nokia White Screen" and check... I first got that problem after using it close to 2 years. Repairing cost is around 40USD (SL Rs 4500) coz they had to change the display. We Sri Lankans usually use phones for longer period than that.
I repaired it, and in 4-5 months , got it again! I also had a "display IC burnt issue" some time back.
From the v.begining I had an issue with the sliding back. It just didn't trigger the camera. As for my opinion, this is not a durable mobile. Not at all reliable.
I was a nokia fan before. Now I doubt I will ever buy or recommend anyone to buy a Nokia mobile again. These mobiles (in my opinion) are expensive, bulky and not durable.
to me this is by far the best basic with all the features,im a migg33 chatter and a miltikicker and
with my n70 bjust by opening 9 apps and set phone mode to gsm im able to kick a person out the chatroom
in n0 0.3 seconds,more or less faster than a pc kicker
now thats some top shit.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970E51 is newer and have Wi-Fi but on those small screen u can't see anything. N70 have much better camera, better music player and bigger screen but it's lil bit slower than e51. e51 have newer version of symbian and faster processor. Bouth of them are extremly good quality phones. I have n70 and I never had any problem with it.
I vote for N70.
PS My English is bad but i hope you can understand me. :)
It's great phone. I have it almost 2 years. Yes it's lil bit slow but everything else is yust perfect. I didn't have any problem in past 2 zears with this mobile. I also have 6120 classic and it's so bad quality. It's lil faster than n70 and have newer symbian version, but n70 is 100 times better pone. It's massive and strong, exelent quality symbian phone, maybe the best.
Morenike, 17 Mar 2009why is my phone always deducting my credit overnigth?u might have a subscription on ur numba, u need to call customer service(mtn,vodacom etc, which ever network u r with, u need to call them) and find out. they will b able to cancel it for u.
Morenike, 17 Mar 2009why is my phone always deducting my credit overnigth?try putting your phone in the offline mode for one night and then see if the credit is deducted.
make sure that all the apps are closed at all times. you can do this by pressing the menu key for 3-4 seconds or so. then follow the same "exit" procedure.
if that doesnt work then contact me again and then i will tell you some more tips!

Aryan.c.s, 12 Mar 2009Don't try this at home .DANGER. Trojanhorse destroy your phone Select sonyericsson xperia ,... moreSE xperia? Too expensive, better buy nokia E71. SE K810, w830,or w850 or I don't know = no operating system so the applications are similar to se K700, 12 main menus. Entertainment = Photo dj,video dj,etc boring.
Faj, 13 Mar 2009I've been using n 70 for the past 3yrs n i never found it dumb. Why do you guys find it dumb, ... morei think they think it's dumb cause they can't actually use it, for reason i have no idea why either that or they own phones that they really suits them...
i know how you feel, i've been using 6680 since 2003 and its already 2009 lol... mind you i never experienced any problems with my unit...
i'm glad you like n70, what i didn't like about it is...
it's quite heavy...
