E71 Tricks!

- Hold down left soft key to read out new text messages
- Double press on the bottom left 'number shift' key locks it
- Page up and page down are Ctrl+Up and Ctrl+Down
- Press Fn Key + Return Key for quick Mark/Unmark of items like Msg. emails etc. for deletion or moving, BOTH AT THE SAME TIME!
- Press and Hold * key to activate or deactivate the bluetooth
- Press and Hold # key to switch between General and Silent profiles
- Press and Hold 0 (zero) key to goto bookmarks / browser
- Pressing Shift + Backspace = delete letters after cursor
- Shift+Chr jumps directly to language selection
- Use the 'Shift' Key to zoom in
- Use the 'Backspace' key to zoom out
- Use the 'Space' bar to go to current position
- When u open your menu and its arranged as icons, you have 3 rows and 4 columns.. these icons correspond to the numbers on your keypad. For example if you want to open the folder or app thats on the top left, you'd press 1, for the folder/app on the top right you'd press *, for anything between those its either 2 or 3.. for the bottom right app/folder it'd be 0 etc.. do you get it?
for example if your menu in icon view looks like this:
A B C D
E F G H
I J K L
To open A you'd press 1, 2 for B, 3 for C, and * for D, 4 for E, 5 for F, yada yada..
- 1 - Bookmarks
2 - Find on page
5 - Tabs open windows (when more then one window is open, hitting 5 will show them tabbed at the top like firefox and you can switch between them using left and right buttons then you can either select that window, close it, or close all other windows)
* - Zoom In
# - Zoom Out
8 - Page Overview
9 - Go To
0 - Homepage
Backspace - Close current window (when more then one window open)
- When in Gallery in images:
press Fn+* for fullscreen
press Fn+5 to zoom in
press Fn+0 to zoom out
press Fn+3 to rotate right
press Fn+1 to rotate left
When in Gallery in Videos:
press Fn+2 for fullscreen


Emails:
Pressing Shift + CTRL + B makes text BOLD
Pressing Shift + CTRL + I makes text ITALIC
Pressing Shift + CTRL + U makes text UNDERLINED

Re: E71 Tricks!

Hi andrybong -

Not sure why but holding down the # key to switch from general to silent does not work on my e71. I'm sure it is user error but either way I'm stuck. When I press the # key from the home screen it activates the search window and all I get is ##########. As far as I know the phone does not switch from general to silent. Can you help me?

Re: E71 Tricks!

Dave, it may just be a confidence thing. Hold the key down and close your eyes, yes you get ##### but also, suddenly, a message that you are in silent!

Re: E71 Tricks!

I'd love to know the trick that gets the E71 to show you the name of a known SMS sender rather than just their number... I've got duplicates in Outlook & presume when sync'd it cant decide which name to show me - unlike every Nokia phone and Windows Mobile device I've had in the past. Having to cut and paste the incoming number into 'Search' to find out who its from is a real pain - any shortcuts??

Re: E71 Tricks!

Hi Many thanks for this. One more information needed-- in the total call duration- if i have recieved calls for 50 hours and made calls also for 50 hours--- then instead of showing total duration as 100 hours it shows as 00 hours. i mean the counter after 99.99 hours again goes to 00. how do i rectify this.
or like in nokia e51-- there was an optoin of pressing *#92702689# and it gave the total duration. Any such trick for e71.

Re: E71 Tricks!

Thanks for the tips.

FYI - using # doesn't switch mine to silent either.

Re: E71 Tricks!

Thanks andrybong! This is very helpful.

Couple of questions:
1. Is there any easy way to lock the keyboard/phone?
2. This is little off topic but related to locking - in Security settings, max minutes before the phone can be locked is 20 - isn't that a very small number? I prefer something like 60 mins. Any way of doing this?

Re: E71 Tricks!

Hi Andrybong,

You seem very knowledgable re the E71.
My new E71 arrived yesterday and I bluetoothed all contacts across from my venerable N70.

However the Contact Groups did not migrate across,
as I have many contacts, Groups is now very important,
how can I bring the contacts across WITH THEIR ASSOCIATED GROUP INDEX?

Re: E71 Tricks!

Hi donny1, unfortunately It wasn't me, I found all these tricks in a forum, but I don't remember which one and that's why I did not put the link.

You have to sync all your contacts in your computer, but let me search more about this and I reply you.

Re: E71 Tricks: Browser:

Open in New Window: Fn Ctrl N doesn't work. But Good idea.

There are 3 really frustrating things about the browser:

- Can't open in new Tab/Window unless the page itself contains the code (ie IE6 behaviour)

- Can't select sections and then copy (nb Fn, Ctrl+V (Paste) does work)

- Can't read or copy address of current page

Anyone found a way round any of these?

Re: E71 Tricks: Browser:

None. Just download and install Opera Mobile. It has all the features you're looking for. It's free and available at Ovi.com.

 

You had to wait for more than two years for the solution. :smileyvery-happy:

I am sorry.
