Straight Talk Nokia E71 Cell Phone Review
The new Nokia E71 from Straight talk
This new Nokia E71 Straight Talk 3G GSM Phone From Straight Talk will satisfy many users of Straight Talk & convert a lot of others that are paying expensive plans.
This phone is by far the best phone Straight Talk has offered, and this could be very well the phone that makes Straight Talk a family name. The phone feels amazing, it is strong has a nice metal backing. The model we tested was black and gray chrome in appearance. When after I activated the phone it took about 5 hours for the 3G and other data connections to come online, that was the only thing that I was annoyed about.
That aside, I went straight to Youtube to see if the thing would watch video... I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it load a video, with next to nothing buffer time. I was like these guys really got this phone right. The operating system on the phone is Nokia's Symbian OS, which is super easy to use, cause Nokia never strayed far from the the orginal OS.

If you are getting the Nokia E71, you must buy the $45 plan. All other phones, you can switch.
How do I pay my bill each month?
Either you can buy the next month at Walmart or online at straighttalk.com. There are 3,6 & 12 months plans, but you don't save any money by doing this. Also you can add a credit card to have it automaticly pay every month.
How do I connect phone to computer?
You will need to buy the correct mini usb cable since it doesn't come with one. Then download the Nokia Ovi Suite from Nokia's website. To sync your calendar, you must have at least Outlook 2002 or Windows Calendar for Windows Vista or 7. For pictures, videos, or mp3s, you can tell it what folders you want to monitor on your computer. The program will also sync the GPS system too. (This depends if straight talk has blocked features on the phone)
