I have had three freezes with this new upgrade. Initially I thought it was related to having a program open on the screen as it happened first time with calculator left open and the second time with Calendar left open.
But today, my phone was in the locked state. As I got into the car I plugged in the car charger, andwhen I tried to unlock the phone, it would not react at all. On/Off button was dead as well. I had to remove the battery to reset the phone.
Personally I think this is all linked to the changes that was made on the login module, which is **bleep** anyway - Why would you have to press "Unlock" followed by "Function" key followed by the unlock code???? The previous implementation was much better, more intuitive and definitely more stable!!!

I've noticed sometimes that answering an incoming call is making thhe phone hang. The battery needs to be removed to make switch off. This did not happen before the update.
I can confirm worsened Bluetooth performance.
Connection with Volvo bluetooth carkit (fw 05_05_R) wasn't great before in terms of functionality (phonebook) but now it is also very unstabl. Phone and car lose connection suddenly, phone thinks still connected, car cannot reconnect.

1) More frequent crashes/ reboots
2) GPS declares "(no satellite data available)" after some time searching for satellites; the bars never turn fully black.
3) Like somebody mentioned above, the backup-and-restore did not restore everything, left some applications invisible etc.
After updating, When I click the installation folder, It doesnt open the folder but directly open the GPS application. I dont have any way now to open any of my instllations....! Please suggest atleast some workaround for me to open my installations..!
Well, the only problem I have hit after updating to 200.x is a pretty blatant one -- if you go to the Web Browser's Settings for AP seleciton and you select Always Ask you get the list of AP to select from. User Defined actually sets the AP to 'Always Ask' -- the options are simply... swapped...
That's one of these low severity, high customer impact issues... How did this ever get past QA? Back when I was a QA Lead people used to get fired for stuff like this ;-]
How does one 'officially' report bugs to Nokia at all?

Change the positioning server to <supl.nokia.com> (without the < and >) instead of the junk put in after the firmware upgrade. THAT should fix the problem you are facing.
No need to "downgrade."
Hope this helps. It worked for me.
I'd appreciate your advice: would I be better off not updating my firmware (from 100') to this new 200' version?
I'm pretty happy with my E71 the way it is & I have a load of app's which I really wouldn't want to go through the bother of re-installing and tuning. The only benefit, as far as I can see, is better camera performance (how much better is it, really, in % terms?) and getting the new black & red themes.
Please let me know your opinions, thanks...
Thanks for the reply. The server was defined properly. Somehow i feel that the GPS performance was not as good as before? Do you feel so? Is there someone that can confirm, side-by-side on two phones with latest and the 121.x firmware? thanks.
--> If it's not broken, dont fix it!!! (I had to because the MSN Mobile thing didnt work on my old firmware!)
1. For a week i couldn't enter the phone menu. only the phone book was available. I've reboot the phone endlessly, and it wouldn't change.
2. All the themes that we're previously installedand the new themes as well - have the phonebook all black and you could see a contact only if you were on it
3. I wouldn't restore any backup i've done from my computer, only the backup done on the memory card
4. AND THE WORST PROBLEM: internet won't work at all
4a. it says "No internet connection available" whenever i try connecting through GPRS
4b. it detects the wireless networks, but whenever i select one, it openes the browser and than it says "No connection available"
So... tell me what to do! I'm so mad it won't work!
Is there a possibility for me to DOWNGRADE it?!?! I'm desperate... I don't want to dump this one and have to buy a new one!

One more thing that doesn't work:
Any calendar entry that is set for today won't be listed on main screen. It says "No calendar entries today".
Especially meetings that are most important.
It would show it the days before, but it won't show it on the screen today!
