    Will they fix the critical microphone and date bugs described here:

  2. 2 Todd October 17, 2008 at 12:57 pm

    Too bad they wont fix the damn blue images on the e71

  3. 3 Dave October 17, 2008 at 6:00 pm

    In the US. Just tried. Nothing for me yet.

  4. 4 Andrew October 17, 2008 at 10:46 pm

    I wonder if they can “fix” the speaker phone “issue”. On the E61, I could call someone and then immediately put it on speakerphone but now, on the E71, I have to wait for the connection to be made and the ringing to start before I can switch it to speakerphone.

  5. 5 Miguel October 18, 2008 at 5:46 am

    Same in europe , Finland. Nothing yet.

  6. 6 fred October 18, 2008 at 7:50 am

    Hong kong,as well

  7. 7 jer October 18, 2008 at 7:51 pm

    Seeing the same in Singapore

  8. 8 grippa October 18, 2008 at 8:22 pm

    i downloaded and updated through phoenix, not much of a difference except the mentioned in the update.

    however, you cannot use the ‘installserver.ex’e hack on this firmware.

  9. 9 simon October 19, 2008 at 11:47 am

    grippa, “through phoenix”? What is that?

    One problem I have with my firmware, probably the most important to me, is the inability to use norwegian characters. I bought the phone in another country, so just want a firmware for Scandinavia. Any possibility of getting this firmware, even without waiting for the NEW firmware?

  10. 10 SE123 October 19, 2008 at 3:02 pm

    Phoenix is a phone flashing application. You need to acquire firmware rom to flash your phone. I would be better just to wait till the offical update is available.

    Phoenix isn’t very user friendly.

  11. 11 dajazzz October 20, 2008 at 6:52 am


    here in Finland it works.
    downloading now….

  12. 12 Kimmo October 20, 2008 at 9:17 am

    @dajazzz: That’s weird, I’ve been trying it the whole morning (NSU + the website) and there’s no firmware available for my Finnish E71-1 yet.

  13. 13 gado October 20, 2008 at 2:29 pm


    Germany -> No Update 😦

  14. 14 Miguel October 20, 2008 at 3:23 pm

    Once again… No updates in Finland. I would say whole europe.

  15. 15 SE123 October 20, 2008 at 4:23 pm

    @ dajazzz

    What is the product code on your phone?

  16. 16 AprilCherrie October 21, 2008 at 3:38 am

    how about Malaysia?? is there any update for malaysia? wish that the latest update can fix the contact search on home screen feature.. phew

  17. 17 HK October 21, 2008 at 6:10 am

    No update for HK users at the moment!!

  18. 18 AprilCherrie October 21, 2008 at 10:22 am

    i just check.. there’s no update for Malaysia users as well.. hmm

  19. 19 dajazzz October 21, 2008 at 11:18 am

    sorry i got confused with the nokia suite. that wanted to install a update before i could use the SWU.

  20. 20 Kimmo October 22, 2008 at 8:16 am

    Well, one thing is good about the firmware not being published yet: they have time to refresh that changelog. To me, it doesn’t really fix anything major. The only things that I care about in the log are: “Camera, BT and browser improvements”.

    No word about the FP2, or improvements to the overall UI (e.g. more font size options). People have reported a lot more desired changes than that and that changelog manages to avoid almost 90% of them.

    I do understand though that some people have requested such overhauls of the whole OS that Nokia is going to have to come up with “Feature Pack 3” to fully please their crowd.

  21. 21 PawanJ October 25, 2008 at 5:17 am

    Hey guys!! I am facing a unique problem with my e71. First the blue tooth stopped working – I could not switch the BT on. and now the mail for exchange has stopped working. Tried running software update-it says vital components missing. Am at a loss what to do. Can any one help?

  22. 22 gado October 25, 2008 at 10:00 pm

    Hard Reset:


  23. 23 tester October 26, 2008 at 8:09 pm

  25. 25 Sander October 27, 2008 at 9:34 am

    In The Netherlands nothing yet……..

  26. 26 Chris October 27, 2008 at 10:37 am

    Nothing in Australia yet either.

  27. 27 Marcelo Barros October 28, 2008 at 11:52 pm

    Even in Brazil … No donuts for us !

  28. 28 Dan October 29, 2008 at 7:01 pm

    doubt you see FP2 or major update until the E63 comes out, should be out around nov-december 08.

  29. 29 ath007 October 30, 2008 at 9:08 am

  33. 33 John November 6, 2008 at 8:33 pm

    Can someone tell me the commands to determine your exsiting firmware version?

    TIA! (NOOB here!)

  34. 34 phalguna November 7, 2008 at 10:41 am

    To see the current version of firmware on Nokia E71, press *#0000#
    Currently in India the software(firmware) upgrade is available at Nokia Care centers. The latest version for E71-1 is 110.07.127 (09-10-2008). Best of Luck!

  35. 35 Ammar November 8, 2008 at 7:36 pm

    Are you sure, since I walked into the Nokia Care Centre and they said there is no Firmware Upgrade available.

    Moreover, whatever changes / improvements mentioned have been icorporated.. What do you find different

  36. 36 jandings November 10, 2008 at 6:50 pm

    Still nothing in Germany, I checked half a dozen of product codes and there is nothing available at all…

  37. 37 ds November 10, 2008 at 6:56 pm

    According to Nokia the latest firmware was released for E71 today on NSU. Unfortunately the E71-2 (RM-357 0559585) still does not show an available update. I really hope Nokia doesn’t take their time releasing a NA version of the software. I really don’t understand why it seems to be so hard to release updates for ALL hardware revisions at the same time.

  38. 38 phalguna November 11, 2008 at 7:14 am

    Yes the latest (at this point of time) firmware for E71-1 in India is available at Nokia Care centers (not sure if Nokia Care all have), I got my firmware upgraded to 110.07.127 at Ameerpet, Hyderabad, India. I sent a mail to Nokia support, and got the reply, and after that only I visited the Nokia Center. Please try sending mail to nokia support (

  39. 39 ks November 18, 2008 at 2:52 am

    Got my phone back from Nokia Care centre yesterday evening. Software was updated to 110.07.127, dated 09-10-2008, RM-346, E71-1(26).

    Still trying to figure out what has changed. Camera a little less purple?? Or maybe it’s my imagination.

    Had to send it in because the keypad was malfunctioning. Would get multiple characters when pressing “w”, “s”, “x”, “o”, “l” or “.” keys. The D-pad “down” key was also generating a weird combination of controls and characters. The Service Report states: ASIP 10-CH LCD FILTER W/ESD BGA24. Unfortunately, the key pad has some play in the top left menu key now. Well, I guess perfection is hard to come by. It is still a great phone though. Found out how useful it was when I had to live without it for 5 days…

  40. 40 Adi November 18, 2008 at 8:42 am

    version 110.07.127 available in romania via nokia software updater, doing the update right now, will let know…

  41. 42 Mike November 21, 2008 at 3:09 pm

    Can confirm, nothing in Canada.

  42. 43 tom December 2, 2008 at 1:20 pm

    Does the E71 really have a FOTA? How does it work. Software update is available in the Philippines.

  43. 44 dragosdn December 2, 2008 at 1:47 pm

    Updated but want to roll back to previous firmware because of unsigned application installation denial, even with “install all aplications” selected. Be aware of that prior to update.

  44. 45 Mike December 3, 2008 at 12:03 am

    Still no update in Canada.

  45. 46 Raj December 6, 2008 at 4:42 am

    Mike, you can get an update to the latest firmware on a Nokia E71-2 in Canada by changing the product code – I’ve described this procedure on my website at – cheers!

  46. 47 smorrissey December 6, 2008 at 7:30 am

    Still no update for Mexico.

  47. 48 nokiae71user December 10, 2008 at 6:28 pm

    whats wrong with these nokia guys… after updating my e71… the performance has got degraded…. i hear some kind of strange sound with the beeps, bluetooth transfer rate is decreased(almost 60%), browser suddenly closes off while browsing and many more problems…. is updating meant to solve problems are create problems… why is this happening?? i’m pissed of using this phone after updating….

  48. 49 smorrissey December 14, 2008 at 4:38 am

    Nothing for Mexico yet and i bet that will never be one….

    FU#$# Telcel and Carlos Fatty Slim.

  49. 50 Balu V January 3, 2009 at 9:49 am

    I can assure u, my previous E61 worked beautifully, but not the new E71.
    after completing a call, the phone just hangs up on me, with a hazy
    screen. i need to unplug the battery and reboot to start functioning.
    very frustrating. Hope the software upgrade rectifies this. any help
    on this……………

  50. 51 Ali Reza January 15, 2009 at 1:57 am

  51. 52 smorrissey January 17, 2009 at 5:52 am

    Oh no Ali Reza another shitty update. Thanks Nokia.

  52. 53 Ilkham January 21, 2009 at 4:40 pm

    Hey guys,

    Trying to update my E71, but after the update starts, the phone switches of (blank screen) and then switches on again. A few minutes later, it says that the contact with the phone has been lost and can’t proceed blah blah blah. Has anyone come across this? How do I fix it???

  53. 54 Edvin January 30, 2009 at 5:33 am

    Hey! New firmware look really great but one point after finished upgrading i cant access internet through WIFI, Anyone go across this problem? how can i fix it ???

  54. 55 Blue1k January 31, 2009 at 3:53 am

    I updated as well and I can say DON’T DO it!

    Sure it has added some nice new features but it has made my phone buggy and it has destroyed the ability to install the Nokia Push email app. I also had to re-install the firmware because the first time through it left the phone in an unusable state. When I pressed the headset to dial the phone would reboot, and if I could get it to dial it would freeze and give memory errors.

    I am almost at the point of just getting rid of this phone and finding something else. Almost the same experience as I had with the P1i-awesome phone but crap software.

    Seriously, how can Nokia expect business people to use this thing??

  55. 56 smorrissey February 2, 2009 at 10:43 pm

    Stupid Nokia this is the first and the last phone that i buy you.

  56. 57 Chuck Faraci March 1, 2009 at 3:11 am

  64. 65 Steve June 8, 2009 at 11:12 am

    I just moved over to an E71 from 6300.

    Im really dissapointed with the software in general.
    Here are my key findings:

    The phone locks itself after only a few moments. This means you have to go in and unlock it everytime and pressing the centre key doesnt illuminate the screen enought to see the promt you to unlock.

    I like to set up the centre key so i can access what i want. So up for log, down for contacts, right for new sms etc. However, with homescreen on that feature is redundant coz it just moves the cursor around.. so i cant use the home screen feature.

    There is no ‘recently used contacts’ option when sending sms.

    When the alarm is set, the icon is a small bell … but placed on compleltey the opposite side from the clock! WHY!? I want it to be next to the time! And i want it big. And why cant i have a big clock so I can see the time properly, and why does PM float under the time? The analogue clock is uselss too.

    There is no option for adjusting the ‘snooze’ period.

    Why does the centre key breathe ALL the time. I need to have my phone facing down at night or in the case.

    I understand new phones have a learning curve, but
    If there is no consistency between products then how can they expect to retain customers. I may as well learn a new phone from scratch and try something more intuative.

    I think this is one of the best looking smart phones on the market, but the software is just so weird and crap, i think i should have got a blackberry.

  65. 67 AHmad January 3, 2010 at 3:59 am
