No, it's a genuine Nokia charger - the one I got with my phone.

In your opinion should I replace it?

Looks very interesting. I'm still very impressed with the battery life on my E71, even after a year.

A question that I hope isn't off the subject: why is it that sometimes when I charge my...

UKJeeper - I was referring to the reviewers comment that "as on the E71 and E63" the E72 also have the space bar torch light. I guess he was in error. Thanks for the clarification.

I don't think the very lastest version of Ovi Maps will work on the E71, but the previous version works great! I had some problems with it finding satellites, but since I upgraded the OS to version...

I agree about Ovi Maps. It takes about 10 minutes to find the satellites on my E71 if I'm driving and never finds them if I'm walking. I don't mind paying a few cents of data roaming charges when...

I wonder if with the upgrade it'll work in Walk mode. It takes 5 minutes or more to connect with GPS satellites when I'm driving, but never connects when I'm walking.

Just be careful if you decide to go with the basic version of the program. Two pdf files that I wanted to read on my E71 "can't be read" by this version.

I also just paid 10 euros for the driving navigation, but that's OK. Could be worse - there could be another 10 to pay in a year. My democratic nature is glad that it's now free for everyone.

Hello again

I just tried a soft reset and the GPS still doesn't work.

Can you suggest anything else? I'd rather not to a hard reset!

Thanks
