Wi-Fi perfomance worse after update

Now after having updated to firmware 400.21.013 my E71 wi-fi perfomance is worse. It seems to be less sensitive and not stable when scanning wireless networks. The number of wi-fi networks it found different at the the time at the same place. It's a pain that now I can not degrade to version 300.21.012 that was more stable.

NAM 400.21.013 is now available

I had tried last week and was in the process of changing my model number, when I went to another forum and someone posted that this just came out. Will post later if it fixed any of my issues.

It needs reengineering. My warning to others is beware -- if it isnt broke dont try and upgrade it - Nokia havnt got the inbuilt language issues sorted with thi firmware so dont be tempted to upgrade.
Hi unregistered,

Sadly, i just updated to the v400 firmware on my E71 as well. It seems that they must have switched our firmwares!!! I'm from the Philippines and the language on my phone is English and CHINESE!!! WTF?!

They must have incorrectly switched the firmwares for our countries!?

I'm really disappointed. The keymap for my phone is totally different!

The v400 is pretty good so far. Webpages load faster via the Nokia web browser. Speedier when scrolling around the phone and menus as well.
Hi Unregistered,

I believe this is not my case. My phone is a network operator (Globe Telecom) supplied phone. Yes, they have their own software and all that 3rd party stuff, but this is the 2nd time I updated. The first went fine but the update to v400 lost my local language (Tagalog) and included Chinese instead. It also screwed the keymap on my phone. The keys type different characters.

I think this one is clearly on nokia.

Updating firmware

Dear Nokia user/experts, recently I got nokia e71x, i didn't know that it is made for other region; US, so don't want some built in application (MediaMall, MediaNet.. etc) the very important is that it doesn't have Arabic language, any one knows if I could update it with firmware of nokia e71 or at least could add Arabic/Persian language? how and where, thanks for your help.

Exclamation e71 firmware

firstly my thanks to all the long suffering symbian sufferers out there who take the time and trouble to share their woes with the rest of us. Secondly my deep dissatisfaction with Nokia for continually churning out substandard phones on a global basis. I have suffered 9 nokias culminating in this e71 contraption. It will be my last. This to be echoed throughout my company within my company

OMG Nokia!

OK, so as a die hard E71 fan, I upgrade tot he latest version (400), thinking the whole experience will change, well 1st nothing changes, same bugs, second i lose half of my applications (wtf!?), 3rd none of my access points work!
It's my second day without internet on the go.
WTF!
I have wasted countless hours backingup, upgrading then restoring and now i am wasting even more hours figuring out how to make this work!
Not to mention I need email on my phone for work!!!!!

This will be my last Nokia phone.

total crash with update

I followed the procedure
1. Backup everything
2. Install update
3. Return the backup
Only... the connection gets lost during returning of settings and the phone crashes: Selftest failed. Contact supllier. (roughly translated from Dutch).

I couldn't find a way to resolve this through Nokia support, but on an australian blog I found out how to reboot back into factory settings (with v4): press and hold 3+*+(green key) and restart.

After fiddling around for hours I discovered that I can put evertything back from the backup except the 'settings'. And settings are always the hard part with my provider. I don't know how much time I spent on this the last time.

I love my electronic gadgets and phones but lately I have spent too many hours on forums, reading manuals and figuring out how to get things working, not even tweaking.

PJI,

yes it is safe, I did it on my E90.... just make sure you are using the right product code for your unit; note also that there are different product codes for the e71 series, they have different language packs... make sure you use the code for the languages you use.
