After successfully altering my E61 back in the day, I’ve had no success in switching product codes on my 3UK E71. Does NSS support the E71? Is the switching process straightforward?

Will 3UK update the E71 Firmware to the latest version soon, word is all the networks were given the new firmware to test and make their own changes to it. The BIG BIG problem is was 3UK happy with the changes they could make?

Harry, yes, if you’re on 3UK, they’ve not released an updated firmware since the very first v100

Some of my friends have reported issues with outgoing calls after applying this patch. Has anyone else faced the same problem?

is it possible to restore the previous firmware? (from v300 to v210 for example)

this latest firmware is giving me PROBLEMS.

7 07 2009
gerrymoth

Its not possible to revert back the way with Firmware, well there is no easy way.

What problems you having, I updated last night and have my phone back to full working order, can’t see much difference with v210 so can’t say this new v300 has made any great difference to me or the operation of my E71!

8 07 2009

now that my e71-1 | RM-346 has been updated to v300… (my fault for not checking)… is there a possibility that i can restore it to previous version since one of the problem (and the greatest) is not being able to connect to the internet.

9 07 2009

My e71 encounter slowness problem after updated to v300, especially when press “Menu” button from home screen, it take several seconds loading before it response. Anyone encounter similar issue?

15 07 2009

Sounds like you tried to restore some apps from backup. I’ve found that after an update its better to reinstall than to restore. Restore seems to only work well for media and contacts. Hope this helps.
Anyone know when the v300 update will be back up?

15 07 2009

I upgraded fine, seems more stable but the battery life is no way as good as on the first firmware. any ideas why?

Ah, not sure on this one, just checked with my E71 v300 and the biggest number I can put in is 999 to be saved.

cybette

the 999 is max number of saved *sent* messages. i don’t think there’s a setting for inbox, right now i have around 2000+ in my inbox…

21 07 2009

Anybody notice the poor battery life with the new firmware?

I have updated my E71 simfree to the new software v 300. All updated fine however, its now prompting for a Lock Code.. I have entered 12345 which is default, however no luck..

I have never changed any default Lock Codes or any other PINs on the phone yet experience this.. really annoyed..

read on some forum that if you enter 112 (as if you are making an emergency call) and press the green button but then hurridly press the red button.. it make the lock code thing go away..

but its annoying, anyone know how to fix this ?

the 999 is max number of saved *sent* messages. i don’t think there’s a setting for inbox, right now i have around 2000+ in my inbox…

i was about to update firmware, but the comments here made me keep away from making any change to the old good firmware.

Well from reading different posts when you update to version 300, you should:
1. Uninstall “Nokia Internet Services” (affects Contacts)
2. Uninstall “Live Messenger” (affects Contacts, Menu)
3. DO NOT restore backup. Manually reinstall all apps and contacts.
(slows down response performance when pushing buttons)
4. Make sure your phone is NOT keypad locked, remote lock disabled, phone lock disabled and not on offline mode.

that’s all.

The update is only available to download to PC and needs a PC to run. Any way of upgrading if I’m a Mac user?
