Hi Everyone,


I received a phone back yesterday which was sent away for servicing. It's a Nokia E71-3 phone. This has come back with version 300 firmware!


The rest of the phones which we have all have 100 version firmware which is slightly different and less desirable after reading about the changes in 200 and 300's firmware.


My question is has anyone found a working NSU code to use for the E71-3 model which I can use to flash the latest firmware down to the phone. I've found plenty of codes for the E71-1 and some for E71-2, however not for our model here in NZ!


Any comments welcomed, thanks in advance.

Hey this is a bit unrelated but my Vodafone mate has offered me his E71-2. I'm wondering if you know if that will work on Telecom XT?

Best E71 for Vodafone is E71-1

It will work, however not on both "bands" that Telecom use. I think you'll miss out on the 2100 band (without checking, I'm guessing here).

I have used my Vodafone SIM in my E71-1 before and it's worked just fine, so you should be fine.. Just note that it might not work as well in all areas of NZ as a actual E71-1 would.

Here are the details of the bands which the variants of the E71 work on. Someone else who's familiar with the network bands could tell you a little more about what Telecom XT use here in NZ.

E71-1 RM-346 = GSM 850/900/1800/1900; WCDMA 900/2100

E71-2 RM-357 = GSM 850/900/1800/1900; WCDMA 850/1900 Este es el que usamos

E71-3 RM-407 = GSM 850/900/1800/1900; WCDMA 850/2100

Actually after looking at the E71-2, I'm not even sure that it would work on Telecom XT as both WCDMA bands are different!
