I live in israel and have nokia 701 with Feature Pack 1 .
1. When talking with people, they often tell me they cant hear me. All of their descriptions of what happens are the same: As if i'm becoming far far away from them . It happns alot, especiialy, so i believe, after i switch from speaker to phone (or vice versa). a friend of mine had a nokia C7 and when i spoke with her , i also felt what my friends tell me they feel. Could this be a known bug with the microphone? C7 and 701 are very similar in design.
2. when i speak, the screen goes out, and thats good, because of the proximity sensor. When i get it far from my head though, it sometimes remains black for a too many seconds (approximately 3 seconds more than it should, before it turns on), which makes it obviously hard to use it if i wanna write a number on the keypad during a call or switch to speaker. It should be said, it doesnt happen most of the times, but it happens too many times. And despite the fact the screen remains black for those extra 3 seconds, if i touch the right place, for expample, speaker button, the phone reacts. Meaning the screen DOES go active, just forgets to show it
My questions about (1) and (2) , are basically: i am still in the one year warranty, so does nokia (or better yet Eurocom, the company that represents Nokia in Israel) HAVE TO REPAIR THIS? is it even fixable?
Lumias are available now officially in Israel, and so Nokia rushed quickly and released the never-available maps for israel, but only on Windows Phone.
WHEN will they, if at all , be available to symbian? I mean, if it exists for the fancy lumia, the data is there. It just has to be made available for the symbian platform. Any info on that?
4) BTW another question, does it make sense that new OS updates (FP1 & 2, and Refresh), are not and NEVER GONNA BE available on the Nokia Suite? and Over the air either? At least here.
We have to go to the Eurocom center and install it. And after the one year warreny, updates will cost approximately 10$. (Talking about OS versions)

1) and 2) should be fixed under warranty, although you could have saved time by asking them direct.
