is your phone shutting off? or is the screen just saving battery life by going dark?
If the latter of the two do this (not that you need to, because you can still download with screensaver mode)

menu=>tools=>settings=>general=>
personalization=>display
scroll down to power saver time-out and select.
change anywhere to a 5 sec to a 90sec timeout, which means, if you have your phone locked after say, 30 seconds, you phone will lock and you will have to unlock it to view your home screen. select ok and scroll down to light time-out for the light (screen saver). again, choose between 5 and 90 second of when you phone's light will dim. say okay.
that's it.

It has both the tracfone service and if you cannot access that, you can click a button on the main screen and it will automatically connect you to an unlocked wi-fi connection and browse on that instead. So, yes it has a hotspot wi-fi browser as well.

Question

Does UNlocked E71 NOT WORK with Straight Talk SIM Unlimited $45??

This has not been directly and clearly stated, though a couple seem to have said it but is not clear.

Yes, locked phone only works with carrier that locks it. Straight Talk phone locked for its own SIM; AT&T does same. and these would NOT work except with its own SIM card. Understood.

So, would an UNlocked E71 NOT be able to use Straight Talk SIM, just like an AT&T or ANY SIM? The SIM does NOT lock the phone; if phone is UNlocked, it goes wherever the SIM tells it, correct??

OK ... I think I know what you are asking. Will an unlocked E71 work with a regular AT&T sim, right? Well, the answer is a little complicated but I'll try to simplify it ... NO, the serial number has to be paired with the sim card IDN before you can use the phone. That means you will have to call ST and pair the two together (if they will) and once you do that, the phone WILL be locked into that sim IDN... so it's really a waste of time... You start off with an unlocked phone only to have it "locked" before you can use it... and as I stated, they may not even want to pair the two together... They might want to sell you an entirely new sim for the phone... or vice-versa... But I guess it's worth a try !!! GREAT question ...

From what I understand you have to have the person you are purchasing the phone off call straight talk and release the phone. When you initially enroll with straight talk they "lock" your information into the serial number of the phone. They can release it for you to sell it to someone else, but if it's not released you cannot re-register to someone else. Hope that helps!

You have to get the ST plan, It is cheap ($45/month UNLIMITED PLAN) and this particular phone(NOKIA E71) works off of the T-Moble and AT&T towers. You get the best of both worlds but with ST's $45/month Unlimited plan. You can't use the AT&T sim card on a ST phone, and even if it works, you're still on AT&T's plan, switching the sim card does NOT automatically put you on ST.

You have to buy the straight talk phone, these are a bit modified from the att version. It comes with a sim card in it for straight talk, which is much larger than the att sim card. I actually tried doing this when I first switched and it will tell you to input a sim card.

Just to be clear ... the price of a phone now-a-days really does not indicate better reception... The most likely reason you had better service on the R451 is because it used the CDMA network (Verizon) but the E71 uses the GSM network (AT&T)... I bet AT&T has bad service in your area ... I go up through Castlewood a lot (I live just down the road in Kingsport) and know for a fact that AT&T has problems in southwest Virginia ... but they both work fine here ... and YES, they do have a year card on their website...

I would like to just say that the more expensive the phone the better it works. My husband bought the cheapest flip phone and had all kinds of reception problems with it. He moved up to the slider phone and has better reception now. I have the E71 and I have excellent reception. So, I think it does make a difference.
