40 great apps for the Nokia E71, or how to do cool things with your symbian phone

I really like my Nokia E71. And I am not the only one saying it. It has many fans around the world, so it is not surprising that it has more than 300 positive reviews on Amazon. It also comes with a nice price tag. The only problem I had was that I spent a lot of time searching for useful applications for this phone. This post is the result of my findings: 40 great applications that cover my needs(and hopefully yours) in many different areas.

The E71 is powered by Symbian OS, specifically S60 3rd edition. This version of the Symbian OS is currently the oldest one that can run most of the software that is out there, including applications developed with the new Nokia Qt SDK. This means that if you have a phone with a newer version of the Symbian OS (S60 5th edition or Symbian^3), you should be able to run all the applications that I am going to list here as well.

OK, here I present you 40 great apps for the Nokia E71:

  1. Y-Browser
    This is a file browser for your phone. The nice thing is that it shows you hidden directories and files, so it is better to use this one instead of the built in browser.
  2. JoikuSpot Light
    Share your phone’s internet connection via WiFi. Connect multiple devices (laptops, other WiFi enabled phones, etc) to your phone and browse the internet everywhere.
  3. SportsTracker
    If you do any type of outdoor exercises like jogging, walking, cycling, etc, download this app. It logs your position using GPS, and then uploads your exercises to an online server that shows your average speed, distance covered, map of the region, etc. It also can be connected to social networking sites such as facebook to encourage your work outs. Highly recommended.
  4. Nokia Maps
    The nice thing about Nokia Maps is that the maps data can be downloaded to the phone’s memory and then you can use it without any connection to the internet. Ideal when travelling abroad and you don’t have a local sim card or when you don’t want to pay for data plans. Also, it comes with turn by turn voice directions in many languages. And all of this for free, for ever.
  5. Google Maps
    Some times you may need extra information that is not available on Nokia Maps. On these rare occasions it is always handy to have the Googls Maps application installed. The good thing is that you can use the places that you saved on Nokia Maps (Favorites) in Google Maps (Starred Items). Note that this app does not come with turn by turn voice directions and it uses internet to get the maps.
  6. Metro
    This application tells you the shortest route from one station to another in your local metro (subway), as well as the one with fewest connections. It uses offline data, so no internet access is necessary. Cities from all over the world are supported. Highly recommended.
  7. cCalcPro
    This is a powerful yet easy to use scientific calculator. It contains many functions such as simple mathematical ones, as well as trigonometric,  financial and base functions. You could actually just use this calculator for every calculation you make, even for the simple ones since it is so easy to use, every key in the keyboard is mapped to a specific function, so it is like using a real calculator.
  8. MobiReader
    This app turns your phone into a nice e-book reader. For managing your e-books, and changing them to the format that this app understands, you can use Calibre, a great software for managing e-books on the PC.
  9. Photo Browser
    This app displays your photos in a nice grid gallery with an easy to use interface. It looks and works better than the built in photo viewer.
  10. Snapper
    If you want to make time-lapse movies, this is the app you should get. It allows you to take a picture every second, minute, hour, or any time interval that you need, up to one picture a day. It is simple to use and it works great. All the images are stored in a single folder. You can transfer that folder to the PC and then just drag and drop the first image into Avidemux and with a couple of clicks you can create a video out of them.
  11. ScreenSnap
    This is for taking screen-shots in your phone. It does the same thing as the Print Screen button on a PC.
  12. SmartCam
    This application allows you to use your phone as a web-cam. It can use Bluetooth or WiFi for connecting to the device.
  13. m3DCam
    Have you ever seen a 3D image using a Red and Cyan lens?, well this app lets you create those images. Take an photo, move the phone and take the second one. This app then creates the image that you can see with your lenses in 3D.
  14. BeatEd
    Do you play any instrument?, if you do, you should check this app out. It is a drum machine. Ideal for accompanying your training sessions. You can create your own rhythms with its 16 channel audio mixer. It is really easy to use and you can download many samples from the website to get you started.
  15. Chromatic Tuner
    If you need to tune your instrument, this is the app that you are looking for. Simply go to a quiet place, start the application and play a note on your guitar (or any other tunable instrument). It will tell you which note is being played.
  16. eBuddy
    Instant messenger. Chat with your friends from msn, yahoo, facebook, and many others in just one application.
  17. Opera Mobile
    A great mobile web browser, with support for tabs and many other features.
  18. Skype
    Call and chat worldwide with your friends, cheaper than using regular phones.
  19. Fring
    This application integrates all your contacts from your phone contacts, msn, yahoo, etc, and allows you to chat, call and video call them using internet as well as cellular calls. It could be used to replace the native contact list, as well as the log of the calls.
  20. Gmail
    Read your email everywhere.
  21. S60SpotOn
    Use your camera flash and the LCD screen to illuminate your surroundings. Nice to have when the lights go out.
  22. Compass
    This application uses the position of the sun and moon to indicate you where the north is. You only need to put the phone facing up, aligned with the shown diagram and you will know where the north is. Also, it gives you extra information such as sunrise, sunset and moon phase.
  23. Sideralis
    If you like to watch the stars, this app is for you. Once you configure it for your location, it will show you the stars that are in your view. You can freely navigate the 3D display of the stars to match the part of the sky you are looking at. Information about the stars is available as well as some astronomic terms explained.
  24. RemoteWitch
    Control your PC with your phone. Specially useful for presentations or media playback.
  25. PyS60
    This is the Python port to the S60 phones. Install it to add the ability to run python scripts on your phone. You need to install both, first PythonForS60_1_4_5_3rdEd.sis and then PythonScriptShell_1_4_5_3rdEd.SIS. Note that there is a newer version of PyS60 here that features Python 2.5, but some applications need the older version installed. Well, you can actually have both versions installed without problems.
  26. Ped
    This is a Python IDE as well as a general text editor. You need to install PyS60 first in order to install it. Also, you need to install it on the same place that you installed PyS60 (phone memory). It has many features, in particular auto completion. You can access the auto completion feature by holding the green button (call) and then pressing the enter button (center of d-pad). This app is also great for text editing in general.
  27. JBakTaskMan
    This is an advanced task manager. It has many nice features, such as launching applications by typing their name, among many others. A must have app for the power user.
  28. FreeTimeBox
    This is an awesome and simple application. It simply displays the current time at the menu bar, always. Now you will never need to go to the Home screen just for knowing the time when you are in the middle of something. You can configure it to disappear when certain applications are running (games for example), as well as the appearance and position. This app is a must.
  29. vHome 4.2
    If you want to change how the Home screen looks, you can install this app. It is a task manager that allows you to change the Home screen with many features. For example, if you need more than the normal 6 apps shortcuts, you can add up to 14 with this app. You can also add weather information or RSS feeds to your home screen. Recommended for the power user.
  30. GPFCe
    Nintendo emulator. This emulator supports sound. Re play your old NES games while you wait for the bus, or anywhere!.
  31. AntSnes
    Super Nintendo emulator. It does not support sound though, but the idea of having the ability to play your old Super NES games in your phone is awesome.
  32. DOSBox
    DOS emulator. This is the port of the DOSBox project to the S60 platform. With this, you can run DOS on your phone, so you can use all your old DOS programs in your phone. You can even run big applications such as Windows 98.
  33. Pamp
    Personal Apache MySQL PHP. Really. You can have a whole web-server on your phone, with databases,  and dynamic pages. You could be hosting a whole CMS or a forum from your pocket. You could for example show a live feed from the camera without needing any external services. The possibilities are endless.
  34. SICFTP
    This is an FTP client. Transfer files back and forth from any server.
  35. Putty
    Good ol’ Putty. Telnet and SSH client on your phone. Thanks to this you could be working on the bus ride to/from work.
  36. CpuMon
    This application displays the usage of CPU and Memory. Good for measuring performance of applications on real devices.
  37. Energy Profiler
    Nokia released this nice application which shows the energy consumed by the device. This can be useful to developers and normal users. Developers can use this app for measuring the energy used by their applications to try to minimize it. Normal users can see the effects of applications and usage of the phone for extending battery life.
  38. Device Status
    This app, developed by Nokia, shows you detailed information about the phone, such as the model, IMEI number, software version, memory available, installed applications, and network information, among other things.
  39. CellTrack
    This application shows you information about the cell that you are connected to, such as the cell id and signal strength, among others.
  40. FreeUnRar
    This application allows you to open rar files.

Please let me know if you think there is a cool application for the E71 that is missing from this list.

  2. kenneth billy says

    i find the JoikuSpot Light very useful, tried it and it worked, thanks

  3. Cindy says

    Very extensive list although I am not impressed with the ability to retrieve info/programs after they have been del as I have with some other phones. My sis did something about a week after I got my phone ann now I can no longer access ovi or backup contacts. Other than that the phone does great . Joiku is an excellent program that I use since I don’t have the capability to just download anything, I have tried very few programs. Thanks again, eventually this list may come in handy.

  5. Rodney says

    I like Vlingo. Using voice rather than typing, I find it easier.

  6. Zahoor says

    Hi. Is there any way to run flv files on nokia e71?

  7. samontab says

    Sure, and you don’t need any extra software for doing it, the E71 comes with a flash player app. Just open the file manager app and navigate to your flv file. Open it and you will see the movie.

  8. nasru says

    what about the media…..

    Audio player
    Vedio player
    Divx،mp4,etc

  9. samontab says

    The E71 comes with native support for most media, like youtube videos, internet radio, flash (i.e. flv), real player, mp3 player, etc…
    You can also install an extra application for divx videos from divx.com

  10. Tom says

    I’d like to have a FIND MY PHONE APP in case it gets stolen so police can track it down.

  11. Adrian says

    How about a “Locate my phone” app, using GPS ?

  12. Jenny Kiernan says

    i’m looking for an internet radio app for ‘spreaker’ i’m having real problems trying to download any of them have you any suggestions?

  13. samontab says

    Not sure if I understood your question correctly, but here is my best shot.

    The E71 comes with two applications for radio, under the media menu.

    One of those application is called Radio, which allows you to receive radio signals using your headphones as an antenna. Instead of using your earphones, you can also connect a regular cable to connect your E71 to any set of speakers. It will use the cable as an antenna and the tuned radio will sound through your speakers. You cannot use the built in speaker of the phone while using this application since it uses the earphone cable as the antenna, and when anything is connected as an earphone, the built in speaker of the phone is muted.

    The other application is called Internet Radio, which allows you to connect to Internet streaming radios worldwide. With this application you don’t need to connect any cable so you can use your built in speaker, but you need Internet access. You can also connect your E71 to a set of speakers and it will sound through them.

  14. samontab says

    I haven’t seen any good application for this…
    You could make one :)

  15. samontab says

    If there are many users out there that need such an application for Symbian, I might just allocate some time and code it…

  16. Tiarz says

    I am unable to play flv(video/x-flv) file on e71.I have transferred the flv video file from my PC to e71.

  17. divine says

    i can’t download skype. it says it’s not available for my phone.

  18. samontab says

    Make sure that your phone really is compatible with Skype. I can assure you that the E71 is compatible.
    Go here and click on View Compatible Phones to make sure your phone is compatible. If it is, just follow the instructions and install it.

    Or, you can try downloading it from the Nokia Store

  19. divine says

    mine is Nokia E71.tsk

  20. samontab says

    Try with the Nokia Store download

  21. divine says

    ok finally.. the latter was very helpful,i now have skype on my cp.thanksss!! :)

  22. Martin says

    Hi. I just installed Joikusoft Premium on my phone but it will not work…. it allowed me to accept the terms and conditions but when I tried to start it after that it says “unable to start…” The user manual is not much help. Any ideas?
    Thanks.

  23. samontab says

    Close any other app that uses wifi, as stated here:

    http://www.joiku.com/help

    If you get ‘unable to start JoikuSpot’ you have another application in your phone reserving the WiFi for itself (e.g. Whatsapp, Fring, Boingo, Antivirus program, …). Release the WiFi for JoikuSpot to use.

    I hope it helps.

  24. Martin says

    Thanks. But I went to that help page and it says to use connection manager to check for anything else using the WLAN. Connection manager says “no active connections” …. so where does that leave me? Back at square one?

  25. samontab says

    My guess would be to close (or even uninstall) apps that reserve the wifi. Reserving wifi is different to using it, so even if you see no activity in the connection manager, there may be some applications that have wifi reserved for them.

    Some of the more common apps that present this behaviour are Whatsapp, Fring, Boingo, and Antivirus programs, as stated in the help page of joikuspot.

    If that does not solve your problem, please contact joiku support for more information.

  26. Martin says

    OK thank you. I’ve been removing and replacing apps all morning and nothing has made the slightest bit of difference. I’ve contacted Joiku Support. If they solve the problem I will let you know.

  27. samontab says

    Sorry to hear that…
    I hope you can solve your problem.

  28. its barbie says

  31. Nicole says

    Does Nokia E71 have a signture for text messaging?

  32. pepx says

    i cant connect my phone through pc suit .. dont know how..
    somebody help me please..

  33. samontab says

    I would recommend you to download and install the latest Nokia Suite from here:
    http://www.comms.ovi.com/m/p/ovi/suite/English

    Also, make sure that you are using a USB cable to connect your phone, not Bluetooth. Once you establish the connection with your phone via USB cable you can then use it via Bluetooth.

  34. samontab says

    Maybe this app can help you:

  35. Kabir says

    Great stuff..really exciting..thank you !

  36. rajan says

    how about movie player?

  37. samontab says

    You don’t need any extra software for watching a movie, the E71 comes with a movie player app.
    Just open the file manager app and navigate to your movie file. Open it and it will start playing.

  38. Ramone says

    Just got this phone and love it, however I am “computer illiterate”. I downloaded three games from the ovi store which showed up initially under applications. Now I can’t find them as they appear to have disappeared. Please help. Also what’s the best wa to download from the ovi store? USB cable, bluetooth or text message?

  39. samontab says

    If all of them disappeared, I would guess that they are written in Java ME.
    Sometimes all the icons of the Jar apps just vanish from the phone.
    The solution is to run an app called MIDlet Restorer.
    You can get it from here:
    http://europe.nokia.com/support/product-support/nokia-e71/software
    Just install and run it. Your games should appear after that.

    The best way to download from the ovi store is basically what works best for you. I prefer downloading the app to the PC and then install it using bluetooth, but that’s just me.

  40. mohammed suhail says

    my nokia E71 is a personal assistant. i am satisfied wit d hevenly app afordable thrgh him……..

  41. Udit says

    I am having problems locating the app “S60SpotOn” on the Nokia Ovi Store, it says it does not exist. I checked for spelling error’s and all that but to no avail. Is there any other alternate app which can make the flash on my E71 work as a torch light?
    PS : Awesome job on the list man, really handy!

  42. samontab says

    S60SpotOn is the best torch app that I have found.
    The last version released was 0.0.7 around 2007.

    It is not available in the ovi store (the store did not exist in 2007), and it seems that the original page is no longer hosting it, so you need to download it from other hosting places.
    You can search for “S60SpotOn v0.07″ to get the latest version.

    To install it, just make sure that you go to the Application Manager, select Options-> Settings and set Software installation to All and Online certificate check to Off. Also, since this package was signed years ago, it will be expired. Just change the date of your phone to a previous year until it works, maybe around 2007. Once it is installed, you can change your date back to the present.

  43. Amber says

    Awesome list of apps. You just helped me decide to get this phone. It was either this one or the Nokia 6790 from straight talk. Now I am super excited to order this phone Friday when I get paid!

  44. samontab says

    Great!, E71 is an awesome value for the money… it is probably still one of the best phones non touch phones out there….

  45. robert dietz says

    i’v read alot on here i cant get the apps to work i tryed o download the mp4 whats the deal

    Try to state your problem in a more clear way and maybe someone will be able to help you.

  50. san says

    when i download mp4 video format unable to play in my E-71 phone pls tel me wat to do

  51. samontab says

    I think that you are referring to the PIN or PUK codes of your SIM card.
    If that is the case, you need to contact whoever sold you the SIM card.

  52. samontab says

    Try converting the video on a PC to another format.
    Here you can see the details on how to do it:

  54. Jonny says

    WOW AMAZING!! Anway i have a problem with java apps. I can’t use, install, or uninstall Java apps anymore and when i run the setup, the status bar for the installation stops near the end but never completes. I downloaded Midlet restorer to see if it worked but it didn’t. I have a few other java apps that i installed before this problem occurred and now i can’t open or uninstall them and their icons are still taking up space in my menu page.

  55. samontab says

    You may want to take your device to your local Nokia Care:
    http://www.nokia.com/global/support/
    They may be able to help you.

    If they don’t, then the only solution I can think of is just re flashing the entire device, which is basically re installing the OS, so make backups before you do that.

  56. Jonny says

    Thanks, I have been needing to update my OS anyway. This is really amazing what you’ve put here and i’ll admit i’m a teen interested in computer engineering and i’m really impressed by you and what you’ve done

  57. samontab says

    Thanks, I am glad you like it.

  58. syed.hasnat says

    thanks for skype

  59. Rico says

    Hello, I hope I’m saying this right? I’d like to have animated flash text messages(not just smileys) on my E71..any thoughts?

  60. Vikram says

    WhatsApp is a cool addition!

  61. samontab says

    Yeah, in fact I use that app daily on my E71 :)

  62. Ingrid says

    Hi, would you know of a bird-watching app which can be downloaded onto my E71? I have seen apps with pictures of birds and maps where they can be found, along with their voice/call. Thanks :-)

  63. Ingrid says

    PS… Australian birds is what I’m interested in….

  64. samontab says

    mmm, never heard of any app for Symbian like that, but I would like one for me too :)

  65. samontab says

    Nice… Australian birds are awesome. I really like the Ibis (the big white bird).

  66. Jonny says

    Hi, now i have fixed my java by reinstalling the firmware, but i just noticed my software is old and actually it is 100.07.76 according to my antivirus(netquin). I know it hasn’t been updated in at least 2 years(i got it used) and i just updated my nokia suite but it says i have the latest software and i don’t have the SW update software on my phone. Any ideas on how to fix this?

  67. samontab says

    mmm, the official way of updating your phone will be to just wait until it becomes available to your region/model/etc…
    Some locked phones depend on the provider to get the updates, as you can see here:
    http://discussions.nokia.com/t5/Software-Updates/E71-Update-from-Ver-100-07-76/td-p/498979

    But, if you are able to reinstall the firmware, an update is nothing more than that.
    You would just need to reinstall the latest firmware (510.21.009), not the 100.07.76 that you installed.
    Make sure that you know what you are doing because you can make your phone useless, void the warranty (if any), or end up with other language, or mapping of the keys.

    Also, you could try the nokia updater software:
    http://nds1.nokia.com/files/support/global/phones/software/NokiaSoftwareUpdaterSetup_EN.exe

  68. Bayern says

    Do you recommend installing apps on E71’s phone memory or the memory card?

  69. samontab says

    From what I remember, there are a couple of apps that need to be installed in the phone memory, and also some apps write into the phone memory, no matter where they were installed.
    Because of those reasons I normally use the memory card as default for installing all the applications, so that I will have enough space for these other apps.

  70. fred says

    nice job bro…..i have been trying to instal xplore to my fone bt its always saying ‘expired certificate or unable to install ” pls wat shuld i do?????

  71. samontab says

    Change your phone’s date to one year ago and try to install it. Repeat this process (going back 1 year at a time) until it installs, sometimes you may have to go a few years back.

  72. zineb says

    hey these are really great applications, i’m wondering if i can watch online movies on my nokia e71 , I mean in streaming

  73. samontab says

    The Real Player app should allow you to connect to an online streaming source.

  74. damian ekene says

    pls can i read ebooks on ma fone e71 and hw can i do such pls

  75. samontab says

    Hello Damian,

    As I said in this post, you can read ebooks on your E71 by installing MobiReader in your phone. You can install Calibre on your PC to convert ebooks into the mobi format so that you can read them in MobiReader in your E71.

  76. midhun says

    hello, im nt able to connect my e 71 to pc via usb. when we cnnct the usb, mode selection option is also comming. bt even if i select the mode the device is not connected

  77. samontab says

    Can you be a little more specific in what you want to do and what does not happen?

  78. Jonny says

    Sorry for the longtime to reply but i have successfully updated my phones firmware. One note i should make is that you need a valid sim card to update, since i was on vacation and tried to update. Also you should not try using bluetooth to update, that was actually the reason i couldn’t update. I luv the update except for the start-up takes at least 4minutes and before that time it is too slow to try and do anything. I was thinking that maybe i should reinstall the firmware to see if that fixes the start-up issue, what are your suggestions? One more note, while i was in vacation in america and tried to update while my sim card was invalid there the size of the update was about 110mb while in my current residence, ethiopia, the size of the update was about 49mb. Just a note to consider, and this was all within the past two months with nokia software updater you suggested. Thnx

  79. samontab says

    The slow boot may be because of your installed applications.
    Try uninstalling all of them and only install the ones you really use.
    Reinstalling the firmware may help solving the slow boot, or not :) Still, I think it is worth the try.
    Firmware updates must be done via the USB cable since they are really low level operations.

    Either way, I think the best is to just keep your phone up, and restart it only when something is wrong.

  80. midhun says

    i wnt 2 connect my e 71 with pc via usb. i am not able to connect. nothing happens when i select the mode. plz help me

  81. samontab says

    After you connect the phone you may try to manually open the Nokia Suite software.

  82. calaloo722 says

    I have downloaded skype to my E71, but when I try to login to skype, it fails, continually re-routing me back to the login screen. I’ve tried rebooting after installing skype and removing & reinstalling skype with no success. Any suggestions?

  83. samontab says

    Hi calaloo722, I recommend you to download skype from another source, for example the Nokia store:
    http://store.ovi.com/content/20924?clickSource=search&pos=1

  84. calaloo722 says

    I did download from the Nokia store. After reading the small print on one of the Skype support pages, it appears that Skype no longer supports video calls for Symbian phones. It should still support non-video calls, and should allow me to login, but I’m not holding my breath. I just wish the Nokia store would, in a timely manner, remove apps that are no longer supported.
    Just a big disappointment with no solution!

  85. samontab says

    That is weird, because I can use Skype on my E71 without problems…

  86. ibrash says

    plz mod, how can i install game that has ‘sis’ format, whenever i wana install them it shows ‘file format not supported’ although i normally install ‘sis’ app on nokia e71 but there some games/apps that has ‘sis format but cannot install them only shows ‘file format not supported’????? Or is their any way to convert ‘sis to sisx’?

  87. samontab says

    A sisx file is a signed sis file, so you can convert a sis file into a sisx by signing the sis file with a developer certificate.
    That process can be complicated, so the easiest solution is to just get the signed file from the original developer, or just download the file through Nokia Store.
    Also, you can always try to just rename it to sisx in case it is already signed.

  88. bidoson says

    i need 2 know how i can run window 98 on my HACK E71, though i have a dosbox on the phone, how can u help me, pls details in full

  89. samontab says

    Well bidoson, there are a couple of guides out there that you can get to by using google, but Win98 on the E71 via dosbox is really slow, so I don’t think it is really worth it.

  90. ibrash says

    Thank you samontab, but please can you specify me some site where i can sign the application because they are not in nokia store..
    And also enlighten me how i can i hack my phone easily…. As bodoson stated above i don’t understand how one can run window on symbian phone since is not OS belle/lumia, and i also heard nokia will stop producing symbian phone…… Thank you.

  91. Emin says

    Good listing, thanks.
    There is also a cool dropbox client for S60, Drops60 developed by Tomi Lehto.
    Maybe you will consider adding to your list.

  92. Doneli says

    pls i was updating my Nokia E71 software using my nokia Pcsuit on my PCs. my system shut down automatically when intalling the update, when i on it back, it can no long recongnised my phone again, i need help pls urgently.

  93. samontab says

    You should take your phone to the Nokia shop and ask them to repair it.
    Basically you will need to reflash your phone, which is for advanced users.

  94. BenJ_Adelaide says

    For those who are interested I recently I upgraded my E71 to the latest firmware and noticed that the battery didn’t last as long, I did some research online and found this is a common problem with the latest firmware so I decided to downgrade to version 500.21.009. Most people say this isn’t possibe and will break the phone but I got it working with JAF. I downloaded the firmware using navifirm and then flashed the phone with JAF. The first flash failed and the phone wouldn’t fully boot so I flashed it again this time using the ini option in JAF and it worked.

  95. himanshu says

    can you suggest an app which wil help me control my e63 via pc.similar to the one in your list.

  96. frankchuks says

    dear,i want am application that will change my voice call to a female or kid voice,at incoming ang out going call.

  97. samontab says

    Frankchuks, I think that may not be possible with Java ME.

  98. samontab says

    You want to control your phone from your PC?, I don’t think that is possible with Java ME.

  99. samontab says

    Thanks BenJ_Adelaide. I have been using the latest firmware without a problem though.

    am using E-71 and since today morning am having problems with the memory card, it does not show the entire music files or video files, like some files r missing. And yesterday I downloaded Whatsapp and compass. Any suggestions coz I have a lot of important info on the card and don’t wanna loose it.

  104. Smile.. says

    Pls is there an app that changes wallpaper automatically for e71? Nice blog too.

  105. ibrash says

    hello house, its been a month i have been looking for another software for my E71 camera flash light, although am currently using S60SpotOn and Nicelight software as phone touch light but both are low as indicator light, too dull… Plz is there anyone in the house that can prescribe the brighter ones……thanks

  106. samontab says

    ibrash, S60SpotOn allows you to turn on the lcd screen, as well as the led from the camera. If you turn them both on, you will have the brightest light that the e71 can emit. No other software will be better than that, since the hardware is at its maximum.

  107. Pedro says

    Using Joiku Premium and trying to get my Lenovo A1 tablet to access it for internet access. Supposedly my Tablet is an andorid and hence does not connect to Ad Hoc Networks. Is there a workaround for this?

    I have connected many different devices to joiku free edition. You do not need the adhoc network, just the regular one

    2=how can need/use video chat? By what web?

  111. Mahmud mussa says

    please back me answer???

  112. samontab says

    Hi Mahmud mussa, I recommend you to download skype from another source, for example the Nokia store:
    http://store.ovi.com/content/20924?clickSource=search&pos=1

    If that does not help, contact Skype support pages:
    https://support.skype.com/en-us/

    Skype works very good on the E71, so you should not need other app

  113. samontab says

    For amharic language:
    I have not tried it, but this may help you:
    http://code.google.com/p/amharic-bible/

    Donwload and install this zip file, the one for sending SMS and email in amharic (follow its instructions to install it):
    http://code.google.com/p/amharic-bible/downloads/detail?name=Amharic%20sender_signed%20v2.2%20s60v3.zip&can=2&q=

    For video chat:
    You should be able to video chat with Skype.

  114. samontab says

    I just answered you.

  115. nkbhashani says

    can u tell me , is there any 3rd party application for the nokia e71 , for use the front cam for web chat and my second qsn is – is there application for we can use the yahoo chat room like , becuse waht the yahoo massanger application available tht only allow chat what u have already frnd , not using the chat roon like we use on the laptop ,

  116. samontab says

    Hi, nkbhashani

    About the frontal camera, it is mainly used for video calls.

    I think that fring allows you to have video calls with the frontal camera.
    http://store.ovi.com/content/9356?cid=ovistore-fw-bac-ftr-acq-na-fringsite-g0-na-1

    If you are a developer, you can access it easily with Java. Take a look here:
    http://www.developer.nokia.com/Community/Discussion/showthread.php?150923-How-to-use-Front-Camera

    About the second question, I don’t know.

    can u pls help me how to mute camera sound…

  118. SAIKUMAR says

    I WANT A SPY CAM APPLICATION THAT RECORDES WITH IN MY E71 ITSELF WITH OUT BLUETOOTH OR WI FI

  119. samontab says

    I do not know of any application that allows you to do that SAIKUMAR. Even if you had one, it is probably illegal to do that, so I do not recommend you doing it anyway.

  120. samontab says

    Hello karthik,

    You can try with this app:
    http://www.samontab.com/web/2011/01/how-to-easily-sign-a-nokia-s60-unsigned-application/

    But it seems that the signing process has changed, so maybe it will not work.

    Can help me how to update using device mgr…..

  122. samontab says

    Kheir, I do not understand what you want to do…

  123. kheir says

    e71 have device manager right??
    I want update sw using device manager…..need to difine server 1st….i dont know how to use it…can u teach me???

  124. hani says

    i m looking 4 textlater software….
    wer culd i get it??

  125. samontab says

    Kheir, I think that the app manager only allows you to uninstall the installed software, it does not allow you to update the software as far as I am concerned.

  126. samontab says

    Hani, I do not know what you mean by texlater software. It kinda sounds like Latex, so if that’s the case, I do not know of any tex compiler, but you can just use any text editor, like the one I show on this post to edit your tex files.

  127. kheir says

    Device Manager…..not app manager…..

  128. jessica says

    nokia….the best

  129. samontab says

    Ah ok. I still do not think that it can allow you to update your apps. Maybe you can update the operating system but not the apps. If it can do that, I do not know how to do it sorry

  130. kheir says

    anyway tq…
    I read website it can use it to update version…
    if u know let me know ok….

  131. Glendzz says

    Hello! Good day.. I just want to ask how to restore factory seetings on my E71 as if it is brand new? Thanks.

  132. samontab says

    I read about it and as I thought, it is for updating the phone’s firmware, not the apps.
    You can read more details here:
    http://discussions.nokia.com/t5/Phone-Applications/I-want-to-set-the-device-manager-to-phone-Nokia-E71/td-p/793569

  133. samontab says

    Hello Glendzz,
    You can go to the Menu -> Tools -> Settings -> General -> and there you can find Factory Settings

  134. kheir says

    i want ask 1 more thing….
    Can i upgrade my flash player??

  135. QWESTER says

    Need an E71 app to take periodic photos, minute by minute and download gps data for each still photo. Phone will be flying under an Radio Controlled plane of sufficient lift ability. Apps could run sequentially since there will be significant overlap in the view area. Could be a combination of your SportsTracker & Snapper apps. I’m a retired Mechanical Engineer with little coding experience.

  136. samontab says

    Hi Qwester,

    You could run snapper and sports tracker at the same time, and then combine the results with a script. Look at this app that allows you to geotag photos:
    http://www.locr.com/downloads

    Also, take a look at this app:
    http://www.afischer-online.de/sos/celltrack/
    It is for tracking cell tower ID instead of GPS, which saves a lot of battery.

  137. iqu says

    hey how can i use security code in my E71?

    How can i use my flash camera as a light?

    Is there any software which works without internet connection for locking my message?

  138. samontab says

    Iqu,

    About the security code, I do not know.
    About the flash as light, just use S60SpotOn.
    About locking your messages without internet connection, I do not know.

  139. hassan mustapha says

    hellow frnd, i tryn to play flv files on my phone but still don’t play and i did wht u sayn.. So is there any other way?

  140. samontab says

    Hi hassan mustapha,

    You can try opening the real player app, and then opening the flv from there. As a last resort, you can upload the flv to youtube, and then watch it with the included youtube app.

  141. WizKhalifa says

    Sir can I download and install some apps via Symbian?

  142. samontab says

    Dear WizKhalifa,

    You are allowed to download and install some apps via Symbian.
    I suggest you use Nokia Store app for searching and installing them since that is the easiest way of doing it.

  143. jithin says

    ttpod a best audio player for e71

  144. SymbianWizard says

    My Phone is not Showing in my pc Via USB Cable i tried everything It does not Show
    Any Ideas !?

  145. samontab says

    Hello SymbianWizard,

    You can try the following:
    – Install and use the latest Nokia Suite
    – Install and use the older Nokia PC Suite
    – Use the USB cable instead of Bluetooth (at least the first time you need to connect the phone with the cable)
    – Try connecting the phone to a different USB port.
    – Make sure that on the phone you select Nokia PC suite or a similar option when connecting.
    – Try with Bluetooth if everything else fails.
    – What phone do you have?, remember that for newer models, like the Lumias, you need to use Zune instead.

  146. samontab says

    Hello jithin,

    I haven’t heard about ttpod. I searched for it and found that it is only available for S60v5/S^3, but not for S60v3 which is what the E71 is running (i.e. the E71 is not a touch phone).

  147. SymbianWizard says

    Ok My phone Model is Nokia E71 Freshly Installed ,Newest Firmwire .
    When i connect the Pc Suit Cable To My pc it show in the phone like this
    1.Pc Suit
    2.Mass Storage
    ETC …..
    But in the laptop it doesent any thing when i plug ,I have tried pluging into a different USB port. but still no Help .& My laptop is old it doesent support Blutooth,
    Before it used to work Correctly .Also when u click Pc Suit icon on the laptop it shows “connect phone ” And PC Suit Latest Version =(

  148. samontab says

    SymbianWizard,

    Just to make sure, do you select PC SUITE on your phone? You need to select it.
    If the phone is not recognized on your laptop, maybe there is a problem with your USB controller. Try updating the drivers for the USB controller on your laptop.
    Have you tried with both, the Nokia PC Suite (older), and with the newer Nokia Suite?, they are two different programs. Maybe it will work with one and not with the other. Also, try reinstalling the software as well.

  149. SymbianWizard says

    I Everytime use Pc Suite On the phone .but there it does not work at all. USB Ports all updated I tried using a Pendrive to the ports it works fine .But the pc suit cable doesn’t work
    Tried with other Phone It works Don know wats the Problem .There is no problem with the USB Ports . Even Tried Older Versions of Pc Suit as well Stil no hope
    If u want other infomation ill tell Thanks

  150. samontab says

    SymbianWizard,

    It should work. I do not know why it is not working.
    You said that the phone works in other PC, and that other phones work on your laptop. That seems very strange.

  151. tanu says

    xplore, nimbuzz, core player
    U forgot these apps..

  152. samontab says

    Hello Tanu.
    Thanks for your comment. I know xplore and nimbuzz, but decided to not put them on the list because I already mentioned similar apps: Y-Browser, and Fring respectively. I did not know core player, but it seems to be a commercial software, and I am listing only free apps here.

  153. prumzy says

    my E71 is also not connecting wit my pc via usb.i’ve downloaded the latest nokia pc suite,still not connecting.any help pls?

  154. samontab says

    Hello Prumzy,

    Please follow the same steps that I showed to SymbianWizard. If you still cannot connect it using them, then please go to your local Nokia Support.

  155. Tanya says

    I am looking for app that will allow me to download free mp3 directly to my E71 is there an app.

  156. samontab says

    Hello Tanya,

    I think spotify is still available for the e71. Just go here and install it:
    http://m.spotify.com/int/?group=symbian_landscape
    If that does not work, you can use your mp3 files that you have in your computer and transfer them to your phone.

  157. Gaurav jain says

    are all the above apps available in the ovi store…
    I tried for S60SpotOn..but no such application waz found..i downloaded the file from other sites but it said-the certificate has expired etc…

  158. Gaurav jain says

    or plz suggest some similar ap which uses the camera flashlight as a torch…

  159. samontab says

    Hello Gaurav.

    No, actually only a few of them are available in the ovi store (now called Nokia Store), because at the moment of publication the store did not even exist. Some of the most current and popular ones are indeed available from the store, like Skype for example. This is actually the main point of this post, to let you know about cool apps that are not available easily.

    About the expired certificate, you just need to change your phone’s date to a couple of years before.

    Take a look at my previous comments on this post, since I answered exactly the same question before. My answer starts with “S60SpotOn is the best torch app that I have found”.

  160. samontab says

    As I said before, S60SpotOn is the best torch app that I have found for the E71, but you can always search the store and try a few others for yourself.

  161. AkhileshSingla says

    Hello. I want to play .avi files. Previously I was using divx player app for that. But with the new year it has been showing ‘expired certificate’ and a suggestion to go to mobile.divx.com. I have went to mobile.divx.com but nothing came in hand as neither the recent version divx 1.0 nor infamous divx 0.95 was running. Both of them showed expired ceritificate. For that, I have temporarily fixed it by changing time back to 2012 whenever I use divx player. But then if I use internet with it then it shows again and again to seek permission for sending a certificate because the time is not correct. I have tried another apps like coreplayer, smartmovie and powermovie players. Coreplayer is a mess. Smartmovie is paid and I tried every available method on the internet of hacking it. Powermovie is good and easily hacked but not upto like divx player. Please can you let me know how can I fix divx player’s expired certificate for nokia e71 without changing time again and again? Divx is an important app for me because I watch movies on it. Or I would not mind using smartmovie player if I can use it without paying.
    Between, thanks for answering all those questions of other people from many years. It is really an appreciable job you have been doing. A job which Nokia should have done.

  162. AkhileshSingla says

    Also, can you update your list with new links to download those files. It is getting hard to google them and downloading them from different sources as most of them is saying ‘certificate error’.

  163. samontab says

    Hello Akhilesh,

    I do not know a solution for the problem that you state. Changing your date to 2012 works?, if that is the case, then there is your solution, change the date when you use the app, and when you are finished, change the date again.
    From what you say, I think there are two options: You can continue using the free apps with the annoyances that they have, or you could pay for using software that works better for you. I do not see the problem of paying for the time of someone else when it saves your time.

    You are welcome.

  164. samontab says

    Hello Akhilesh,

    If you (or anyone else) give me the correct links I will happily update the post.

  165. Tom says

    Hello All, I’ve just installed Skype on my Nokia E71 downloading it onto my phone from the Ovi Store. It took a very long time to download and install. Unfortunately when I enter my username and password it just keeps connecting but a connection is never established. Does anyone else have the same problem and how did you fix it???
    Kind Regards
    Tom

  166. samontab says

    Hello Tom,

    I have never had that issue, but I recommend you to check your username and password in a regular PC first.
    After you check that, try connecting in your phone using a WiFi connection. VOIP services like Skype use a lot of data, so if you have a slow connection like EDGE or GPRS, you may not be able to connect. Always use WiFi, or at worst 3G connectivity. Anything slower will not work very well.

  167. Tom says

    Hi samontab, thank you for your prompt and descriptive reply! When I enter my username and password on my PC Skype starts up and works fine. However when I do the same on my E71 it just does not establish a connection. When it is trying to connect I get an E double arrow symbol on the top left in the display on the phone. The user guide description of this is
    the EGPRS packet data connection is active. I guess that this means that the connection is too slow and I will need to find a location that offers a WiFi connection or a location where a 3G signal is available.(Where I live I get a GSM signal) >> Bugger
    Many Thanks
    Tom

  168. samontab says

    Yes Tom, that is exactly the problem.

    If you are going to be using Skype from your home, I recommend you to buy a cheap wireless router so that you can have WiFi at home.

  169. steve says

    I have been searching for hrs to find if google voice can be used with the E71 to place calls. I can txt and use voice mail, but not place calls. My doid has and app for it. But I still like using the E71 the majority of the time Best reception of any phone I have owned. And i would like to place calls that show my google voice number. Thanks for the list of apps

  170. manish says

    hey
    My camera constantly gives me a problem..
    Sometimes it opens with a black screen and if i click on capture..it doesnt work.. And sometimes without opening ..it just shows the error ‘camera feature not supported’ ..
    Any ideas what is happening ??

  171. samontab says

    Hello Manish,

    If you are using a 3rd part app, that may be the problem. Use the included camera app.
    If the problem is with the included camera app, then maybe there is a hardware problem with the camera, or with the firmware. Take it to a local Nokia Support store, or if you want to void the warranty, and try to solve it yourself, try reinstalling the firmware, or try a newer firmware.
    Note that updating the firmware is for advanced users and you can turn your phone into a useless piece of hardware, and you will void the warranty. So, you should contact Nokia Care.

  172. kayvee says

    how about a music mixer…i mean dj sort of thing..??

  173. samontab says

    Hi kayvee,

    I do not know of any software for the E71 for doing that. But I guess it would be uncomfortable to DJ with the E71… I suggest you just use a laptop, PC, ipad, or at least a touch phone for that.

  174. Stacy says

    hi, I would really appreciate your kind assistance on problems I have been having with syncing my emails on my nokia E71.

    Sometimes the emails appears to be in sync (or once I get it to sync by switching off the phone or changing internet connection) a couple mins later the inbox on my phone is empty, i.e., it is blank! Somehow all folders are updated except the inbox folder.

    Sometime ago I deleted all accounts on https://email.nokia.com and and added them again on my phone, and reset the data but it only worked for a short time.

    I even tried reinstalling the original (latest) update 501.21.001 (and also other backups) and nothing worked. (I know the most recent update is 510.21.009 but the software is saying the first one is the latest available)

    Looking at the connection info and viewing the log I see “Error Memory allocation failed (Error code: -4).). Error occurred in EaPlugin while creating request

    This has been happening for some months.

    Two days ago I reinstalled the update (once again) and my inbox was in sync for a couple hours. right now it is not syncing and the error message I am getting is saying “no connection or bad connectivity (Error code -7010). error occured in Eaplugin while waiting for response from server)

    Can you please, please, please help me?

    Thank-you

    You are welcome Vimal J Soni

  177. Stacy says

    Can you please help me?

  178. samontab says

    Sorry, but I am not sure how to solve your problem Stacy.
    I think the problem may be in the synchronization, not in the firmware.

    Maybe try re setting your accounts in the device again.

  183. jack2swag says

    pls help me GOD BLESS U

  184. samontab says

    Hello jack2swag,
    3D games on an old cellphone is not a good combination. Many of them will not run in the E71, but maybe there are a few that will.
    Regarding the game brother, I have never heard of it, so I do not know if python not being installed is the problem. I suggest you to install python and that way you will know for sure if that was the problem.

    is there any app for checking the battery life ???

    Sure Dav4o99,

    I always used iON BatteryTimer lite, which was free and very useful.
    Now on the Nokia store I only found the paid premium version:

    The lite version may still be somewhere else in the web though.

  197. samontab says

    Jammy, I am not sure how to help. Try using the nokia store instead.
    If it fails, you should go to your local nokia care center, or if you are feeling adventurous you may try re flashing the device (which may void your warranty).

  198. samontab says

    Steve, maybe you could try installing apps from the nokia store.

  207. Yuppie says

    Jammy.. To hard format ur nokia E71,step1. switch off ur phone. after switching off, press the keys (alt * 3 green key powerbutton) at thesame time.
    Hold unto all those keys until after the nokia hands have joined.

    This will format your nokia E71. If it doesn’t work the first time, retry it carefully again and make sure all those keys are pressed down together at d same time.

  209. Boss says

    Hi,
    Pls i installed joikuspot and ran it successfully only dat i couldnt get other wifi devices to connect to it. One gadget dat was able to see it and connect to it couldnt browse either. Pls what do i do?

  210. samontab says

    Hello Boss, try restarting the phone after installation.
    If that does not work, close any other app that uses wifi, as stated here:

    http://www.joiku.com/help

    If you get ‘unable to start JoikuSpot’ you have another application in your phone reserving the WiFi for itself (e.g. Whatsapp, Fring, Boingo, Antivirus program, …). Release the WiFi for JoikuSpot to use.

  211. Shazia says

    Hi Dats a great list buddy. i’m unable to use whatsapp messenger on my nokia e 71. Earlier it used to work bt not working now. Error that i found was this…
    Setup.py(197): error in method_exist from engine\ui\progress.py (47) in__call__ : SymbianError :[Errno -3] KErrCancel.

    Can u pls help.
    Much appreciated ! Thanks in advance

  212. samontab says

    That is weird Shazia. All I can suggest is to try removing it and re installing. That may solve the problem. If the problem persists, go to their forums.

  217. Daniel says

    Hi! Great job you’re doing here…Pls, seriously need your advice on this: I have not been able to type,send or read received messages on my Nokia E71. Seriously need a way out. Thanks in advance.

  218. samontab says

    Hi Daniel,

    That is mostly related to your own service provider. Usually you need to setup your phone to be able to send and receive SMS. Just go to your local store and they should be able to help you.

  219. samontab says

    Hi Ritesh, you should contact your local operator to see if they can help you with that.

  220. Chris says

    hi, i’d like to try the gmail app on my nokia e71. however, i don’t know which software version i need!

    the choice is:
    ios
    blackberry
    windows phone
    web app

    it’s the first app i’ve tried to download – any advice?
    thanks
    chris

  221. samontab says

    Well Chris, it is not any of those choices, so maybe they discontinued it.
    You can try searching for an older version.

    i am having problem with keypad when i just type A it writes 4 to 5 time A and other keypads i read ur whole conversation but didnt get any answer or quesstion about this problem …need ur help sir …

  223. samontab says

    Hello ALI RAZA,

    It seems to me that it is a hardware issue. You should take your phone to Nokia Care, and get it fixed.

    How to track a other mobile number using gps

  225. amtul says

    hi …i cudnt install watssapp on nokia e71 as i had an NetQin antivirus in it..which is stopping watssapp to download..and m anable to remove that antivirus app from my handset..what can i do..

  226. samontab says

    Hi amtul,

    You could try re flashing your device. This might void your warranty, so take your phone to Nokia care if you do not know what you are doing.

  227. samontab says

    Hi Akshay,

    That’s probably illegal if you do not own the phone.
    If you own the phone, you could just install any GPS tracker software on it, and it should work fine.

  228. khia says

    hi admin my phone is nokia E71-1 it was made in 2008 in finland now it works but after few minutes it marks that there is no sim card inserted yet it is inserted what can you advise me to do?

  229. SymbianWizard says

    Hi Again
    Great to see your helpfull comments.I would like to ask, Is there any other latest Firmware for Nokia e71.I heard about some hacked ones which are faster and are modded.If so how do you install these.My phone is already Hacked anyways Thanks

  230. samontab says

    Hello Khia,

    I think that may be a hardware fault, maybe the sim card socket is a bit loose. Take it to a technician.

  231. samontab says

    Hello SymbianWizard,

    I haven’t checked for a long time about firmware updates for the E71. In any case, since you are a Symbian Wizard and have an already hacked phone, you should be able to flash the firmware version that you find. Remember that you void the warranty, and you are on your own. Happy hacking.

  232. mahi says

    hi… M searching for image editor… M not getting it any wher… i got some n showinng certificate xpired.. Plzz i m fed up… Help

  233. SymbianWizard says

    Lol K I”ll Check it Out.Also do u know Tutorials how to do flashing Any Links.Thanks a Lot in advance :).
    Btw is there any wasy We could change the Menu View other Than The Default List and Grid.I saw there Many more Menu Views.Thanks

  234. samontab says

    Hello mahi,

    Try changing the date of your device before installing. The certificate was valid at some point, so if you go back, year by year, it should work eventually.

  235. samontab says

    You can try vHome, it changes the default home screen.

  237. jithin says

  238. samontab says

    Just google them. They are very old so maybe you will not find some of them.

  239. Michael says

    please,i try to download xplore and any other application inorder to hack my e71 but when i tried to install it,i recieve a notification saying:”Expired certificate”………. what can i do because i have download many apps and still recieve the same thing?

  240. samontab says

    Hi Michael,

    Change the date of your phone to one year in the past and try again. Repeat this process until it installs correctly. You may need to try many times before it works because some applications certificates are really old.

  241. Prince says

    Hi there sir ,i have aprob when i open my message it always take it back to its icon pls help me with this :(tq

  242. Prince says

    I just clear what i was to say,its the messaging part only if i open “send message and the inbox”only it take back to the “list of menu in mssgng” itself.

  243. samontab says

    Hello Prince.

    I do not know the answer that you are looking for.
    Take your phone to your local Nokia Care Centre and they may be able to help you.

  244. jomin says

    helo, is there any app flash transfer(fastest blutooth file transfer) for nokia E71, i saw android flash transfer for android it works fantastic… But i need nokia E71 flash transfer app, please help me …. Thanks

  247. samontab says

    Hello angad,

    It seems that the version of the application is not built for your phone. Try another application.

  248. samontab says

    Hello Basher,

    If you want to send files using bluetooth, just use Y-Browser.

  249. Pato says

    Even it’s old, this telephone is still popular. Very great job Samontab.
    Question: I don’t understand how works the installation of GPFCe. Where is the installation file please ?

  250. samontab says

    Thanks Pato,

    Most of these apps are really old, so you will have to search for the sis files if the links are broken.

  253. aliahmad says

    hi there is a problem with my cell, when im downloading any app it show the certificate expire n this problem is with every site where from im downloading the apps plzz hlp

  254. samontab says

    I think you can access it using skype, but it does not have good quality at all.

  255. samontab says

    Hi aliahmad,
    It is because the certificate is expired, as it says.
    Change the date on your device a few years back until it works. Try going back one year at a time. It will eventually work. After you install it, you can change the date back again.

  256. Johnhardex says

    Hi pis can mobile tv work on e71?
