I am starting this new feature where I will collect all the happenings in the world of mobile phones and post it here for you to read (ok this is because I am swamped with work!!!)
1. E71 gets a a firmware update:
Last night, the E71 just received a major update to the firmware. From the current version 110.07.127 to a new version 200.21.118 . A lot of fixes have been implemented. Remember to download the latest version of NSU (Nokia Software Updater) and fire it up after connecting you phone to your Windows operated systems as there is no support for other OS.

Another thing to remember, please take a back up of your data as E71 does not have UDP (User Data Prevention). In case you don’t back up, all your data could be wiped out. You can read the change-log here.
