To add to the review, as I just got an E71-2 (US Version):
- The US version does not seem to have the 2GB MicroSD included
- Nor the nice Advanced Call Manager - I googled and found it at www.nokia-asia.com/A41163468
- Nokia maps GPS is slow - Google maps is much better! (Plus doesn't try to make you pay for simple directions)
- YouTube mobile works (Launches Realplayer, plays a 176x132 video) as well as full-site YouTube in the browser, but flash in Web is naturally more laggy.
- DON'T try to load up your 4 year old, 13,000+ msg IMAP mailbox! Even if it is just headers and a few hundred K, the messenger app can't handle it and completely bogs down. Thin it out to a few hundred first.
I love the headline for this review! "Messenger of steel"! It sounds like a Judas Priest song...!

hi! Does e71 display txt messages in a thread, just like IM, or like the one in palm smartphones?
Hi everybody, I have the e71 for almost two weeks, kindda disappointed with the GPS connection as it take some 10 to 15 minutes to get connected and sometimes not getting any fix at all even under the open field. Do anyone with this phone face the same problem? other then this, the smart dial shown on the review was nowhere to be found, does this happened outside asia market?
Thanking in advance for any pointer.
Bought the phone assuming that it would support BlackBerry services.
Feeling so disappointed now, since BlackBerry services can not be configured on E71.
The phone is so good looking and temping, I just didn't bother to check if, it does have BlackBerry support. My mistake.
If you are looking for BlackBerry compatible phone, it is not the one you should go for.
Or if you have some other ideas, do let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in Advance !
everything were great until I saw the on/off button. I freak out and thought that I received nokia-wannabe + made by nokia. I could not eat for whole night until i found the "in-depth" review... thanks!!
E71 users!! anyone figure out how to set a home network. you need it for email automatic retrieval

But I was hoping that nokia w... moreIronically, if you want multi-language support, the phone with the most complete language support, input methods, and the nicest fonts seems to be the iPhone. Your mileage may vary, and the new 2.0 software is buggy, but if Nokia doesn't get their act together and add GOOD unicode support, including FONTS, to the E-Series, they're going to be left in the dust in this market segment.
I, too, have felt the shame of having to call people because my E61 shows only empty boxes for an SMS or email message in another script. This "call of shame" alone is terrible negative marketing for Nokia.
Localized phones are nobody's friend; I need support for Japanese and Chinese, simultaneously, in my address book, SMS, web browser, and email. While I could (eventually) import an E71 from either of these markets, I still wouldn't get the universal support I need. Get with the game, Nokia!
Since i was using E61i also it was perfect, E71 comes to improve to everybody and specially for BalckBerry, stay away from the way of the GSM manufactring NOKIA concept.
Its amazing phone, fast , proformance , apperiance, all perfect
Tocca Tocca Hey Hey!
I read in your review that this E71 comes with a wrist strap. This makes me happy and I will buy the phone because of its looks and texting but also because a wrist strap makes the product secure in the hand to hold.
It beats me why them at The Nokia didn't put in a better camera to round of the deal for me and my photo antics.
I am going to get this and swap my 'i900 tocca' for the ipod phone too.
C Ya in and around Dacre Hill. East Posse!
Does this cell come with a pre install yahoo or msn messenger? If not where can you download it from??? I can buy this cell today but want to make my home work first then choose the best possible cell for me.

Well ok, how is the camera it is still greenish as in 61i or normal ?
My e61i gives out greenish that is because its original resolution is 640*320... And not 2mp.
I would like to know the e71 quality or whether its resolution too is 640*320 pixels....
You could also consider the: Samsung i780; 624mhz processor, 128mb ram, takes SD-HC cards, GPS, WiFi and 2 megapixels in a same Blackberry like package. Runs Windows Mobile Pro (= Office, Blackberry Connect, Garmin/TomTom, etc) I have a Samsung and it's perfect for me!
