That’s how you upgrade your Nokia mobile phone’s firmware. Let me know in the
comments if you have any question.
Take it to Nokia Care and get the firmware re-installed. Alternatively, If it comes on, (I personally would not recommend) connect it to a PC connected to the net and update the firmware yourself. It is a risky operation as I lost my E61i but was lucky to get E63 in lieu as E61i was under warranty. Choice is yours.
I too did the same thing with my E61i and lost the phone. Luckily it was in warranty period, so I got a new E63 instead.
Samething has happened to your E71. That is why I always advise people to get their phones upgraded thru Nokia Care as they do it with their computers and not via the internet, which is always dicey.
I hope your phone was under warranty. If yes then tell Nokia Care immediately and have it replaced. You may still be replaced with E71 as it is still under production. All the best.
hey friends..i just sent my nokia e61i which had its firmware failure during the updation process,,the problem is that its integrated circuit or I.C..is short circuited or what something like that..so the best option is to sent the phone to a nokia service center..i hav just sent mine..hope to get it back in a month...
