Nokia Tips and Tricks e71

The E71 weighs 126 g and it's very skinny (114 mm x 57 mm x 10 mm). It's noticeably smaller than the E61i it replaces, which is generally a good thing as it's simply easier to carry, except for that it also affects the size of its screen (down from 2.8" to 2.36") and keyboard. But as (IMHO) both still stay within tolerable range, it's not really something I'd complain about too much. Instead I'd rather praise that the E71 is finally a true world phone with full quadband (GSM/EGSM 850/900/1800/1900) and also all WCDMA frequencies (850/2100, 900/2100, 850/1900), which is something really important in this quickly shrinking world.

Home screen

From the home screen, you can promptly gain access of the features you use the most, and see at instance an any missed calls or new messages. You can define two separate home screens for different purposes, such as one screen to show your business e-mail and notifications, and another to show your personal e-mail.

To access the home screen, press the home key briefly. To change from one home screen to another, scroll to Switch mode and press the scroll key.
