I've got the phone back from the Nokia shop where they have reinstalled the software.
They have advised that it is not a problem with the battery and I'm currently charging the phone to see how long the charge will last. I'll leave it switched on, but offline, overnight and see what happens.
I'm not hopeful as I've loaded the energy profiler and it is showing 0.51W usage.
If the problem still exists then they have advised that it will have to be returned to Nokia for replacement.

I have traveled to that building where my Treo drained like crazy and I must say I was impressed. Not only did the E71 not drain it also had an excellent reception my Treo was not able to deliver. My E71 ran for 3+ days with moderate-high usage.
Mind that when using the Energy Profiler I am currently at 0.07W so the value for me to "hit" is 0.05-0.07W. Everything above is a "drainer". The Energy Profiler reaches this idle value only after a certain uninterrupted standyby time (the value moves from high->low over time). So, a load-unplug-check sequence is not enough. It needs to be load-unplug-wait-wait-wait-check.
Heinz, when you say you are at 0.05-0.07w exactly what is your phone doing, is that with it on standby with the screen off and no backlight on?
I recently downloaded the energy profiler and running Opera Mini viewing full webpages and energy profiler (only two programs on) my wattage can spike up to 1.8w or 1.9w using 3g (this is the live values and not average) but i imagine if i consistently surf the internet loading links to read, that the average would naturally rise after a certain amount of time to around 1.1-1.2w? Is this really high? Becuase compared to your 0.05-0.07W my values seem ridiculous. Thanks
