Nokia E71 Firmware update

Nokia E71 Grey

Nokia E71 Grey Steel

There was a firmware update for my Nokia E71. Remember to backup using PC Suite before doing an update, and restore your settings after. This has been my primary phone for just over an year and I must say its been great. Its fast and gets the job done. This was my first QWERTY phone and I can’t see myself not having a full keyboard anymore.

The most immediate change seems to be the addition of OVI contacts in the phone book.
