Disappointed

aegunes, Amazon
14 February 2012
  • Summary: Phone came in an open AT&T box, not in an original Nokia box. It also has a AT&T logo on it. No warranty or registration paperwork in the box. Very disappointed that this deal was not advertised with these facts (AT&T phone, not an original Nokia equipment).

Just out of warranty phone borke

brudgers, Amazon
25 July 2011
  • Summary: I purchased a Nokia because of their reputation for quality. Overall, the E71 operated well and allowed me flexibility when selecting carriers. Unfortunately, less than 90 days out of warranty, the handset function of the phone ceased working and I can only communicate using speakerphone - which not...

Not a Good Business Phone

Daniel M., Newegg
13 April 2011
  • Summary: If you're like me, a middle age business person(I'm a Recruiter, so I'm always on the phone), you'll have major problems seeing the little numbers and letters on this phone! Especially at dusk and beyond! I bought this phone because I had used a Nokia N63!
  • Pros: Solid Build, not a cheap plastic phone, quality parallels the IPhone.
  • Cons: For anyone who calls companies for a living and has wants to use the companies dial by last name directory, this phone is a nightmare! There is no straight forward way to change from numbers to letters, and by thetime you go through the steps, the company phone systems ask you to start over! If y...

Dated....

KeepNTouch, Phone Scoop
13 January 2010
  • Excerpt: I have 30 days to decide to stay with my current carrier or leave. Based on the review of this phone, I thought I would be migrating to ATT. Not so. Call Quality was as if I was talking in a tin can.

terrible imap

Anonymous, Newegg
16 July 2009
  • Summary: For a business phone, the email issue is VERY important. The reason that I have a data plan and a smart phone is so that I can react and respond immediately to important emails no matter where I am. The IMAP client should have been one of the easiest, most important things for Nokia to do well.
  • Pros: solid hardware construction, especially the keyboard all the right capabilities: gps, 3.5g, wifi, bluetooth out-of-the-box tethering with ubuntu 9.04 + AT&T
  • Cons: IMAP client is the worst I've ever seen. Constantly crashes and needs a phone reboot to fix. Drops/hangs IMAP connections (no longer updates email = no new email notifications) without telling you. This means that you cannot trust the phone to tell you whether you have any new email or not

No longer a Fan

AVANESS, Phone Scoop
9 June 2009
  • Excerpt: I was really exited when I found out that ATT was going to start carrying this phone. I have always been with T Mobile, but my wife wanted the Iphone and I did not. First impression was great. It looked good. But try keyboard is not easy to get used to.

  • Summary: "One of the most difficult phones to use. To send text you have to hold a key to get numbers, the battery also dies without warning. Altogether not a good phone."

no firwmware love from Nokia

Anonymous, Newegg
25 January 2009
  • Summary: Look online, no one seems to know why we can't get a firmware update like the other e71s, or when one will be available.
  • Pros: good keyboard, solidly built, good connection speeds
  • Cons: messaging client is buggy, drops IMAP connections. All other E71s have a new firmware version available, which is supposed to fix a lot of problems and speed a lot of things up, but not these.

Linux User.

mark s., Newegg
6 January 2009
  • Summary: Linux Users: Xgnokii and/or gnokii where helpful in transferring data/contacts etc. I should have waited for a Linux Cellphone. Hopefully non Nokia firmware will become available.
  • Pros: Nice Hardware.
  • Cons: FOTA (firmware over the air) DOES NOT EXIST. To upgrade the firmware you MUST have a Windows XP or Vista PC, absolutely useless for a Linux User like myself. All of the Nokia software feels almost good but seems not to be quite finished. Luckily there are many good free alternatives to be downloa...

Not a Blackberry replacement

Yuval Z., Newegg
15 October 2008
  • Summary: Not worth the money. Get a carrier subsidized, locked, Blackberry Curve and be more productive. Spent long days trying to customize the E71 to work for me. Still, did not work as well as my old Blackberry 8700g for email.
  • Pros: Great construction quality, GPS (when using Google Maps), excellent voice quality, decent browser, connectivity to Ovi/Flickr
  • Cons: Bad connectivity to Microsoft Exchange: the email client is immature, editing email is painful - especially if you use a Blackberry. The camera is plain dreadful - just look on Flickr or share.ovi.com for E71 sample. The OS in general is sluggish. Most Nokia software is beta quality and slow at b...
