I bought my E71 with Nokia Care Warranty about a month ago. It is just the confirmation of my firm conviction that there is no PERFECT PHONE in the market.

It is indeed a big relief after my N95 which embarrassed me a lot due to battery suddenly failing. E 71 has good battery with very respectable talk time. For a user like me, two hours on a single charge is perfect.

The GPS on this device takes a lot of time in locking onto the satellites, and surely N95 leads in this regard.

I like to install a lot of software and that ran me into problems. It is really bad for a phone with exceptional specs. My advice would be to keep on backing up your data every week. It has happened to me several times that the applications simply disappear after installation, and you are left with no option but to go for dreaded *#7370# option for a master reset. The Symbian 60 3rd edition is also an impediment in use of software available on GetJar website.
Within one month of use, I have updated the firmware, and used the master reset option three times.

It would be nice to get some advice from friends in this forum about how to use this phone optimally. Since I dont come to this forum often, I would appreciate email on

Thank you and my best wishes to all.

I m using this phone for 1 month. It started to hang (5-10 times a day) just after 1 day of purchase. I sent it to Nokia care, they said that they solved it by installing latest software. But, the problem appeared just after I got my phone back from them. One new problem started in addition to the previous one. That is, at times (8-10 times/ day) the menu/ home button don't work. When they are pressed, a small blue thing comes, and nothing else. For both the problem, only solution I've found is 'reset'.
Can anyone suggest me how to get rid of the problem?
Its really urgent.

I live in Bangladesh. I want to buy an E71 from here so that I can use it in US (including 3G). Since US and European models differ in 3G frequency, how can I make sure I am buying the right version (NAM vs European)?

i had this phone. great specs and all but not really friendly when it comes to text messaging. you really need to focus pressing and all else doesnt exist when your using it. too bad i had to sell it after a month use. and now im left using my old n95. a very sad story, the phone cost so much.

Hi Would like to know if the E71 heats up fast. Use some of Nokia phone which has metal casing. Gets very hot if talk for short while. Nokia customer service commented that it's because of the metal casing. Appreciate your reply. Toying between E63 and E71. Advice appreciated. Thanks.

Hi guys. Through the past years, I've used almost all mobile brands (Siemens, Samsung, SE, Moto) except for Nokia.
I'm thinking now of getting Nokia for the first time. The E 71 seems really a great device after what I read and heard.

Does anyone know where I can get the black version? I've seen it un-boxed on the following website:­e71-black/

Best cellphone on the market!
No responding lag, perfect battery life, full qwerty key board, full functionalities of a smart phone(ie. email, web, calendar, im, mp3, video, game, office).
Camera is doable, but no serious photographing.

love it!

everything is good in this but there is one major drawback and thats the inside LCD gets dust which will kill all the impression of this phone.
