Re: COMPATIBLE BLUETOOTH KEYBOARDS FOR E71?

I've successfully paired an Apple Bluetooth keyboard with the E71. Haven't really used it much apart from the fun factor of driving a small cellphone with a full size keyboard. I would guess that pretty much anything should work.

Re: COMPATIBLE BLUETOOTH KEYBOARDS FOR E71?

I have succeeded in connecting and using my old Palm Bluetooth keyboard with the E71x - I had been frustrated that they did not appear to connect until I figured out that I needed first to install the proper keyboard driver (available from Nokia in the link below, using the one for Symbian 3rd edition). To install, you have to go to App manager under Config in Settings and remove the online certificate check). Then do a search with both discoverable, enter a passcode on the Nokia, type it in on the keyboard followed by enter and they're paired! Under the Keyboard app, select US for the keyboard type in options and it works, with command key pulling up the menus and the direction keys going through all selections, it is easy to navigate and use for email and QuickOffice documents.
