Just finished setting up my phone back. 15 minutes update and 3 hour setting up the damn thing. But it’s well worth it, I feel those improvements they said especially in call handling and general feel.

I am shocked there is a new update, I am here in the USA and still have v200 working on my phone. We haven’t gotten v300 and now there is v400. I need to update mine to v400. does anyone have an idea how I can do it?

Did the update yesterday. Besides for a few missing apps the backup->upgrade->restore process worked surprisingly well…

I wonder when they are going to make the fm radio player have the ability to play straight to speakers without having the headset pluged in and then have the option.

(I stil have not upgraded yet to find out, Will do so in weekend, but won’t be supprised if that option is still not available)

The FM Radio on the E71 needs the headset plugged in as this is the aerial to allow you to tune into stations

Phone is faster. Ovi Store does not work. Error Message I get is Store :feature not supported. Facebook app from the Ovi Store site does not install since Error MEssage I get says “Your Phone N95 8 GB is not supported”

More Updates as I use the phone.

Hi gerrymoth. I upgraded my firmware to version 400 and restored my backup as usual. I now have a bit of a problem. If I try to go into ‘modes’ within the tools menu, the phone resets. I’ve never experienced this before and it’s quite a crucial bit of the phone as controls my on screen shortcuts and email notifications. I tried a different restore, both times without restoring phone settings to no avail. Any thoughts on how I can fix this?

I’ve never trusted the phone backup on any of my Nokia’s. I always sync and install everything

Wow, so many duplicates… It’s seems as if they wanted to beef up the changes list!

Well, i’m still stuck with ver. 200 (although i can update to 210).

I always change my product code to get the latest firmware. Checkout http://themoth.wordpress.com

Yeah, i know it’s possible, but i need hebrew support and i don’t think it will be installed that way.

It’s all up to the local Orange company to make up a localized version.
They have skipped ver.300, hope they will make it for ver. 400 in time…

Hey Elad,

Another Hebrew talker here… Should we change the product code, are you sure we will lose hebrew support?

I’m going nutz with this version… I can’t wait changing it….

G’Day.
I just installed the E71 ver 4 update (via OVI Suite), and now find all my phone settings have been deleted. Suite SAID it was creating a backup, however it doesn’t seem to have done ‘everything’ just selected OVI Suite stuff (which is useless, because all that was already synced).

Can anyone tell me how to RESTORE the ‘missing’ stuff (like Notes, Phone Settings, Ringtone) etc etc please ?

Thanks, Greg.

Hi all,

I’m in the same position as Greg Hudson: upgraded my E71 to version 4.00.21.013 with the new fancy-looking ovi suite software. I backed-up and restored as part of the process but now none of my settings or self-installed software are there; the language is wrong, the internet access points list misses a few items and a bunch of apps aren’t there.

I’ve upgraded the firmware 4 times previously and the backup-restore process brought everything back – settings, apps, everything.

Most annoyingly, I can’t work out how in ovi suite to re-restore the backup it (hopefully) took before the upgrade!

Can anyone help?

Cheers,
Chris

Hi, has anyone encountered after the upgrade that their HOME button does not work?

In all my previous firmware updates on Nokia E71, as well as E51, my calendar entries were never restored properly.

Any idea if this issue has been fixed here? I cannot afford to lose my Calendar appointments, anniversaries and memos!

For those who have upgraded, does the new MFE (Mail for Exchange) now include support for subfolders?

Just updated the updater, backed up, updated firmware to v400. All smooth except the Gravity app didn’t reinstall. Otherwise, sweet.

Shitty update… Removed Ovi from Main Menu & restored old Download function which allows me to… download new Ovi, which is already installed in Installations folder… FCUK! I lost my calendar entries, apps & themes. I’ve never had so crappy upgrade before. I was Nokia fan for a years but this time it’s going too far.

I’ve been on v400 for a month now . Overall the phone does consume more battery now .

actually the battery life is improved for calls and sms – I now get 7-8 days instead of 6 on a light week with a few calls and messages.

But the GPS and the WIFI consume much more battery than before – with v300 I used to get 5 days with some GPS and WIFI , now same usage gets me 4 or even 3 which is just not nice . The GPS seems slightly better but nothing major , it was alright , and i cant find anything new with the WIFI connection , it was good and still is , and the weaker signals are still not picked..

I can’t feel any speed improvements except for the boot time , and the GSM signal is actually a bit worse , and the only issue i found annoying is still there (the phone freezes for 10+ seconds when canceling a call before the other end answers) . I never noticed any other real bugs with v300.

I feel the legendary battery life is now gone – If you have a really strong signal around and you’re looking to somehow improve your GPS signal if its too weak to be usable , then you should upgrade.

I would’ve stayed on v300 for general use knowing this , be wise .
