oops i was hitting the shift key only once, not twice, after the fn key.. works a treat! thats gonna make life a lot easier rather than asking to borrow some ones phone just to look at their keypad..

Also i found this out. when u open your menu and its arranged as icons, you have 3 rows and 4 columns.. these icons correspond to the numbers on your keypad. For example if you want to open the folder or app thats on the top left, you'd press 1, for the folder/app on the top right you'd press *, for anything between those its either 2 or 3.. for the bottom right app/folder it'd be 0 etc.. do you get it?

for example if your menu in icon view looks like this:
A B C D
E F G H
I J K L
To open A you'd press 1, 2 for B, 3 for C, and * for D, 4 for E, 5 for F, yada yada..

Great tip! This works on my E71-1 for any phone number that has letter-mnemonics eg 13YARRA (I'm in Australia).

some Web shortcuts

1 - Bookmarks
2 - Find on page
5 - Tabs open windows (when more then one window is open, hitting 5 will show them tabbed at the top like firefox and you can switch between them using left and right buttons then you can either select that window, close it, or close all other windows)
* - Zoom In
# - Zoom Out
8 - Page Overview
9 - Go To
0 - Homepage
Backspace - Close current window (when more then one window open)

Also if your viewing full websites (not mobile sites) and notice how it kind of jerks/skips and is a little slow scrolling up and down and left and right try disabling the Mini Map under settings-general to speed things up a bit.

Thats all i could find out by experimenting.. anyone know anymore? Maybe theres a shortcut to reload or add to favorites?

hi.you probably already know this one but if you return to the homescreen from an application by pressing the red end call key you kill the application but if you press the menu key instead you will return to the homescreen without closing the application.when you press menu again a small circle by the application icon shows that its still open.

I'm glad a referred back to this because I've been using the long methods of doing this pretty regularly and I'm not sure how I missed your post the first time. I also turned off the mini map for a substantially smoother/better browsing experience. Thanks again for posting this and sorry for the belated props.

Has anyone found a way to mark/unmark images quickly? For instance on page one someone posted that fn + ret would mark/unmark emails but it doesn't seem to work on my E71-2 and when I'm marking many images to move or something it's a pain to select options and scroll to it on each one each time. A simple key press option would be nice.

E71 "#" key to toggle silent profile

I would like to use this feature but it doesn't work on my E71 either, I just end up with ######## on the display. Bummer

Although the * key does toggle the bluetooth on/off.

My handsets details are:
110.07.127
09-10-2008
RM-346
Nokia E71-1 (221.06)

Do you mean whilst in File manager? If so, and bear in mind that I no longer have an E71 to test with, I think that shift and middleDpad will select multiple of files won't it? That is, move the highlight over each file then press shift and middleDpad thus producing a Mark (tick/check) then when you've finished marking them all use Options to Move?

Yeah, I found that on another forum and forgot to post back. It's the shift and then center D pad button to mark them all.

Does anyone know how to get a new text message be the default thing opened when you press the mail key for a long period of time? Right now it seems that the default action is to open up a new email....

I can't see a setting to change the long press to new SMS, I just have a list of applications I can set to it. Shame, on the E51 new SMS could be saved to that key.
