I went to my local AT&T store yesterday and the salesperson didn't know what phone I was talking about. They had them in the back and didn't have a display out!!!
Then he ran my info and told me it was $199 without a data plan (which I DON'T want). If I got a data plan, I would get $50 instant rebate to drop the price to $149 and I'd get a mail-in rebate for another $50. I left the store because everything I saw online stated it was $149 before the mail-in rebate. I checked the AT&T site last night and the phone seems to be $149 WITHOUT a data plan. So I guess I'll be ordering it online!
I am having difficulties setting ringtones and pictures to specific contacts. The only way I have gotten it to work is to delete the contact off of the sim card all together. Is there something I'm missing or a work-around?
The E71x is available from attwireless.com, but is it available from any retailers? I've been told that Best Buy will carry the phone at some point, but no one seems to know when. I'm not going to pay for the data plan (at least not at first) and I don't want to fool with a mail-in rebate. If you buy it at a retailer like Best Buy, Wal-Mart, etc, you normally get the after-rebate price up front. But do you know of any retailers already carrying the phone?
I've heard since this a unlocked phone that its only 15 bucks a month for unlimited internet instead of the 30 bucks a month that they would make you pay for a smart phone to have internet if anyone can let me know if this is true that would be great thanks.
I just bought an E71 from Best Buy Mobile today and I was wondering if there's anyway to lock the phone quicker then pressing the power button and pressing lock keypad. If someone can help me with that that would be great thanks.
Just purchased the E71 and have been very disappointed in the poor quality of the images on the web browser. Most pictures are displayed with hardly any color at all. Is there a setting that needs to be changed? Love the phone otherwise. Thanks!
I've got a friend talked into buying one. I see someone mentioned "Best Buy", and my local AT&T corp. store says 1st quarter. Where else are they ... ? She'd be a new customer, so I bet there's ways to get one cheap! I'm in SE Mich btw, thanks !
Is there a way to check how much batter life is left like you could on the the blackberry curves where it showed the percentage left of power left on the battery. If anyone knows that would be great thanks.
