Review: Nokia E71

Form Basics Extras Video Wrap-Up Comments  4  

Menus Calls/Contacts Messaging  

Hitting the green send button brings up a bulk list of all your calls. Scrolling to the left or right through some tabs lets you sort by Dialed, Received, etc. When in the calls list, pressing the left soft key opens up a list of options for each number. When in a call, the options menu lets you mute the call, switch to speakerphone and so on. You can also jump into your contacts and messaging applications.

The E71 also has PTT functionality, though it is incompatible with AT&T's PTT service. The E71 is capable of using the Wi-Fi radio for VoIP-based Internet calls. This service is something that also needs to be added and paid for separately, perhaps by a business that provides the E71 to its employees.

Managing contacts is a snap. You can use Nokia's software to quickly transfer your contact database from your PC to the E71. Once there, it is easy to search through your lists for the person you want to contact. Simply start typing in a name in the seach box, and the E71 will automatically search for that name as you type. With a contact highlighted, there is a little arrow key pointing to the right, pressing the D-pad to the right opens up a drop-down menu. This menu lets you quickly choose to call, send a SMS, email or audio message to that contact without having to open the contact up first. This is a nice little shortcut.

The contacts application can be reached via the dedicated shortcut button on the front of the phone.
