Delete Messages on E71-2

Is there anyway to mass delete sms messages in inbox and outbox other then going in options and marking all of them and then going back into options and pressing delete? Thanks in advance.
I assume you already know how to speed select items with the shift key (2nd key from the left at the bottom). Then after you have marked them all you can use the backspace key to delete them.

That's the key with an x on it inside an arrow pointing...
Once you delete messages from the inbox, are they gone for good or do they go to a trash box or somewhere else that I would need to delete them from?

Nokia E71x Cases

Just wondering if anyone has gotten a case for their Nokia E71x and how it's worked out? I'm debating on whether to get the rubberized ones or a hard case....? Input appreciated.
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 the E71x, which doesn't come with threaded messaging. but a buddy of mine hooked me up with it as a dowloadable application. so there is a way to get it.

1 before every phone number

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 have the same problem as you. did you ever get this fixed?

Facebook app for E71x

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.
Viewing the actual web page works fine for me.

Infrared time out

Is there a way to increase the time before the infrared connection times out? Often times I will be in the middle of typing a text message in PC Suite and it times out before I am finished.

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. ☚ī¸

Here's PC Suite's info:

Just upgraded to Vista SP2 today, but still have the issue. đŸ˜ĸ
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 ...
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've got PC Suite installed on my Vista/64 (Ultimate) SP1 system. I've been able to connect my E71x but it's been intermittent. Sometimes it'll sync, other times it won't.

I recently installed Ovi Suite and so far it's been work...

e71 and data plan

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.
As far as I know AT&T's system won't know you are using an unlocked smartphone on their system. Since the E71 is not a phone they sell it won't list in their system as a smartphone.

I myself am using the $15/month unlimited media net package for i...

Message icon flashing on the home screen

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...

Internet compatability = Internet obligation?


If I buy the e71, do I have the option of not paying for internet service which thereby prevents me from surfing the internet, sending e-mail,etc?
I am on AT&T myself. You are NOT required to get a data plan just because the phone can get on the internet. Compared to the Iphone which IS required to get a data plan.

BUT pay per use internet will probably get added on. There is no monthly cha...

E71X Alarm Sound

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?

Nokia E71 Keyboard

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. ☚ī¸
Sounds like your phone has the wrong language pack installed on it. Or perhaps someone replaced the keyboard with a different one.

The one suggestion you could try would be to reflash the firmware on the phone to see if that fixes the language pro...

Date and time bar in standby/locked mode

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?

Gmail APp on E71x?

I just attempted to download the Gmail APP for my E71x and got the following message from Google:

"Sorry, the Gmail application does not work on your E71. However, you can access Gmail on the go by using the web version."

WTF?!?! 😲 😲 😲 đŸ‘ŋ đŸ‘ŋ đŸ‘ŋ

I've not seen anyone, anywhere say anything about having trouble with this. All comments I've seen on the subject indicate that the app works fine on the E71x. Anybody have any ideas here??? 😕
