I had both a hard, clear plastic case, which broke. And now I have a rubber case on the phone. I like the rubber one better. The phone is slick enough as-is with the metal back. The rubber gives it a better grip.
this is a really quick and simple question. I am looking into the new smartphones and one of my REQUIREMENTS after having a BB and a Treo 680 is threaded text messaging. I text way too much to have to open every message individually. Does the E71x have threads? What about the Samsung Jack?? Anyone know which other smartphones nowadays do threads?? Please let me know ASAP.
I have an issue with my phone where every incoming number has a '1' in front of it as if it were long distance. This wouldn't be an issue, but Nokia's computer software doesn't recognize the incoming number as a contact. This issue was fixed by adding the '1' to my contacts, however, many of my contacts have multiple phone numbers and when I try to set a number as a default for the contact, the phonebook applcation crashes and I can't set the default. This doesn't happen when I have the standard 10 digit number saved without the leading '1'. Does anyone know of a fix?
I have trouble explaining things so sorry if this doesn't make any sense. If you need clarification, just ask.
I was wondering if there is an facebook app for the E71x through AT&T. I noticed a few other Nokia phones have a face book app. If for chance is does not have the facebook app for the phone, is viewing quality of the website good or not so great? Thanks for any info.
E71x not recognized by Vista x64 when connected USB
Whenever I try to connect the E71x to Vista with the USB cable, it always shows up as an "Unknown Device" - even after I installed the PC Suite. I've tried all 4 USB modes on the phone: PC Suite, Mass storage, Image transfer, Media transfer.
So I have 2 questions:
#1 If anyone has been able to get the E71x recognized by 64bit Vista, how?
#2 Are there drivers for this phone that I can download?
I've tried both Nokia's and AT&T's tech support, but neither were able to answer. ☹️
Here's PC Suite's info:
PC Connectivity Solution: Version 188.8.131.52
Nokia Connectivity Cable Driver: Version 184.108.40.206
Operating system: Microsoft Windows Vista 64-bit Edition, Service Pack 1
Language: English Language for non-Unicode pro... (continues)
Well, in case anyone besides me is searching for a solution to this: I just tried it out on Windows 7 RC1 x64, build 7100 today. Still doesn't work, even after installing all the latest software available.
This definitely seems like a driver issue ... (continues)
The only problem I had on my Vista machine was not having the default USB mode on the phone set to PC Suite. I also set it to always ask which mode I want. When you set it to PC Suite, does the PC Suite software recognize it?
i BELIEVE THAT NOKIA PC SUITE DOES NOT SUPPORT 64 BIT OS. I HAVE WINDOWS 32 BIT VISTA ULTIMATE AND RUNS GREAT. I DO NOT THINK THERE IS ANY SOFTWARE THAT IS 64 BIT. MY MOM HAS DELL WITH 64 BIT PROCESSOR FOR FUTURE SOFTWARE. I SETUP FOR 32 BIT VISTA ULT... (continues)
I wish to purchase this phone direct from Nokia. I asked the ATT rep at a local Corp store if I could do so without contract penalty or renewal and it is no problem. However, the ATT rep claims I MUST have the $30 data plan even though I am not purchasing the phone from them. He quoted the new Smartphone Sept 1st rule. Is this true? I don't want data, only the Wifi feature.
Yeah, i currently have it set up so i wake up to the Boondock Saints Theme song. go into your clock application. the left quick key will be, options. click it, then scroll down to settings. click it. then the fourth option from the bottom will say "Cl... (continues)
I just got the E71x yesterday, and I really like it. But there's a message icon flashing on the bottom of the home screen. I don't have any unopened text messages and I don't get emails on my phone at all. Any idea what the icon is and how to turn it off?
You have messages on your sim that have to be removed. You can do this by going to Menu>Messaging>Messages>Options>SIM Messages. Then delete all messages. You can always copy them to your inbox if you wish to keep them. At&t swapped my phone out 4... (continues)
When the alarm goes off on my phone, the alarm sound doesn't play - "clock alarm" and the time flashes on the screen, and I can stop it or snooze, but there isn't any sound. The phone is set to the "Normal" profile, not silent or vibrate. The alarm tone is set, and I can hear that sound, when I set it. Any suggestions?
Does anyone know how to change the keyboard configuration, the keys don't represent the letter or symbol shown on the phone sometimes. I've tried changing writing language and phone language, but didn't work. ☹️
I am confused on what triggers this bar to actually be lit up once in awhile. I am talking about the that comes up a few seconds after you press the D pad when the key pad is locked. Usually there is no back light, and it is hard to read. Once in awhile it IS lit up, which is very handy. Can anyone tell me what triggers this?
