    Sure or not.
    You can adjust the volume of your e71 ring.
    e71 is very fast. Symbian 60 3rd ver.

    I set the volume to max already but as I said earlier the ringtone is very low.
    Defective unit?

    I might just get the e63, it is just a smaller version of a e61i, no HSDPA. Maybe it might look better in real life. I personally like the e71's functions, but I find the looks of it really bad, a finger print magnet cum mirror.

    Surprisingly, the E71's glossy stainless steel casing doesn't attract any fingerprints at all. This was my concern too until I held the phone in my hands. My fingerprints simply evaporate away the moment I lift my fingers off its surface. Regarding it looking like a mirror, not really. In my opinion, it is not reflective as the iPhone.

    The horizontal "volume" bar that you see on top of the screen display when you receive a call, is deceptive. You thought after setting this to maximum, why still so soft.
    Because there is another main over-riding control.
    By default, e71 (I think) is shipped with the main control set at the middle volume.
    e71 incoming ring tone signal can be very loud.
    This is how you do it.

    Press the house-like icon, actually called the home icon.
    It is the left most of the 4 icon keys.
    This brings up the MENU
    Look for TOOLs. The icon is a spanner. Most e71 zero in on that and all you have to do is press the big square key.
    This brings you to SETTINGS. The icon is a bigger spanner.
    Press the big square key.
    This brings up the GENERAL menu.
    The cursor is on the top bar called PERSONALISATION.
    The icon is a paint palette.
    Press the big square key.
    This goes into the Personalisation sub-menu.
    The cursor is on the top bar called Display.
    Do not choose that.
    Scroll down 2 steps to TONES.
    Press the big square key.
    The cursor is on the top bar called RINGING TONES.
    You can change this to [Nostalgia.acc] for a loud old-style phone ring.
    Then scroll down 4 steps to RINGING VOLUME
    Set this to maximum by clicking the D control to the right. You can see the red bars.

    You can also check the way it rings by scrolling up 1 step from RINGING VOLUME, to RINGING TYPE.
    Set this to RINGING.
    So that you do not get a signal that is very soft at first and then slowly becoming louder. That is called Ascending. (Do NOT choose Ascending, since you want a loud signal right from the start of your incoming call)
    Exit from the menu.


    Call your e71 handphone from another phone. It is loud.

    What Ricohflex said is correct. That volume setting is for voice , not ringtone.

    The ringtone of my E71 is as loud as my E61i.

    I did the exact thing on a friend's E71, and compared the same ringtone on my E61i with both phones set to max. Quite a world of difference. Perhaps there's an issue with certain sets.

    Nevertheless, the E61i is the first phone that has stayed in service with me for the longest period. I simply cannot find anything wrong with it.

    Both the e61i and the e71 have got HORRIBLE cameras.
    the e71 takes horrible grainy photos.
    Compared to the great CarlZeiss lenses of the N series.

    I think Nokia had to purposely cripple the e71 camera or else Nokia fears it may affect their N series sales. It is not a smart move.

    Sony came out with a 8.1 MP phone.
    Samsung has the Innov8.

    That part i know, but i never buy any phone for taking photos lah....

    Selling points for me:

    1) QWERTY keyboard
    2) Loud ringtone capability
    3) Long battery life (with normal use, mileage varies depending on what you do)
    4) Big screen with decent resolution
    5) Adequate size of keyboard buttons makes them easy to press
    6) The OS shows upcoming appointments etc on the main screen

    Both my E61i and E71 are used as phones and for emailing only. If I want to take photos, I use my Ricoh GR Digital.

    Strange.... As mentioned, both of mine sound the same.

    Nokia does has saving graces.

    One is the ability to selectively download maps of countries you are interested in. For example I have China, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore in my phone.

    Those who travel often to other countries like say, USA, Japan or Korea can load accordingly.

    This is free. Can you imagine how much it will cost if you want to buy similar mapping software from companies like KingMap. Mapking, etc....

    I even bought software in the past for Singapore map and it was by a subsidiary of Street Directory. You know what? They make you pay all over again after 1 year. The software stops working after 1 year.
    How ridiculous.

    The other thing I like about Nokia is their Notes and Active Notes. Both have their place and are useful. Nokia Notes syncs beautifully into my Outlook Notes.
