I use the 8gb card and find it to be more that adequate, I would stick with what the OS supports. As far as OVI maps, that is true, when I upgraded to 8gb card, had to reinstall OVI maps and the applications, ringtones etc I had on the old card. You can use the PC Nokia Suite with a Bluetootch connection for that, although the map files are large and may require the USB cable which you can buy through Amazon for just a few bucks. You could also download the files from the OVI store using a Wifi connection as it most likely would not allow using the GSM Cellular Network.

Download the Google Search application for your phone. You will have to do that through their m.google.com site as otherwise you will get the link and not the application. The application will use your phone GPS to determine your location and if you type in Weather, parks, restaurants, etc. It will provide you a listing that relates to your current location.

The Nokia E71 runs on the Symbian version 3 9.2 Operating System and any applications need to be compatible with it. Android and iPhone are separate Operating Systems.

No. This phone uses the Symbian S60 operating system. Unless there is a Symbian or Java version of the app you want, you can't use it. If the apps you are looking for don't have a version that is compatible with this phone. You can download apps from the Nokia Store for this phone that might work similarly.

This phone runs on the AT&T towers... I think AT&T and T-mobile are merging, so, service will only get better.

Technically yes, but it's extremely rare compared to how often a PC gets a virus. I have never gotten a virus on any smartphone I have owned, all of which have run either the same operating system as this phone (Symbian S60) or Android.
answered 2 years, 6 months ago
By

answer 2
Yes. Usually they are designed as a program that you have to install. As long as you only install programs with certificates and don't download unknow sources on the web you are probably OK.
A virus is like an intruder, if you keep your doors locked on your house you are safe. Open them up and invite others in and your systems (or house) is compromised. All you have to do is know who you are letting in the door and your safe.

Those are for comparative reasons only. No phone battery actually lasts as long as the manufacturer or distributor says. I did use this phone almost constantly with GPS and wifi turned on most of the time and the battery lasted 3 days though, which is the best I've ever gotten out of a smartphone.

I cannot speak to the 17 day standby claim (as I routinely charge it each day); however, the talk time does exceed 10 hours. The battery is exhausted only when using the phone as a hotspot with the (free!) joiku software without having the phone plugged in. I routinely use the hotspot while charging the phone.
