    Nokia e71 3g

    Advertisement



    Hello everyone, I sold my bold and was looking around on the market for a new smart phone. So I got myself the e71 and love it. So many things I can do. But the only problem is that its not connecting on 3g but edge. I'm on rogers and I'm not too sure if its compatible, I bought the phone unbranded and unlocked.

    Any info would help. Thank you

    E71 3G working on Rogers would depend on which version of the phone you have.
    3 Models are sold in the world.
    E71-1 (EU) Quad-band EGSM 850/900/1800/1900, WCDMA 900/2100 HSDPA
    E71-2 (NAM) Quad-band EGSM 850/900/1800/1900, WCDMA 850/1900 HSDPA
    E71-3 Quad-band EGSM 850/900/1800/1900, WCDMA 850/2100 HSDPA

    Based on this website:
    Canadian GSM Coverage
    Rogers seems to provide 850/1900 3G coverage which means the
    E71-2 (NAM) is the compatible model which should be used.

    Look for
    Type: RM-357
    Model: E71-2

    under the battery on your phone.
    If you find it different, you just might be out of luck.

    Also, it wouldn't hurt to check that your account has been
    properly provisioned for the 3G data coverage with Rogers.

    Unfortunately, with the version of the phone you have, it doesn't have the correct radio for 3G in Canada.
    As always, just my opinion...

    Sad, but true.
    Unless you are still within the 15/30 day return/exchange policy period??

    Rumors are that the E71 is actually coming to Rogers anyway!!
    Check this piece of news out->
    Confirmed: Nokia E71 officially coming to Rogers

    Oh. I don't know why you decide to say good bye to BB. Actually, E71 is not as good as Blackberry 8320 or 8900, even Bold.

    My friends in singapore, most of them say good bye to E71 and back to BB.

    I agree... The only thing a good nokia phone lacks is BBM.. But other than that, they are really solid phones.
