    My e72 phone shows a message on the main screen asking to connect to the internet periodically which I cannot delete.

    Check for the applications which are trying to access internet every time. Press and Hold Home key, then you will see the list of active applications.

    Delete key doesn't work

    The ". del" key on the Numerick KeyPad will delete if you use the SHIFT key at the same time. It is easier to use the DEL key on the main keypad.

    Deleting files does not free up disk space

    Note that "deleted" items move from their location into the "Recycle Bin".

    So, "empty" the Recycle Bin, in order to reclaim the space.

    Or, when deleting:
    1. click ONCE to select a file/folder to be deleted
    2. hold the SHIFT key down
    3. click the DELETE key
    4. release the SHIFT key

    This will "permanently" delete the file/folder, immediately freeing-up the disk-space.

    How to delete video files from iriver e100 mp3

    The video files should be in the video folder instead of the music folder - use Windows Explorer to be sure. If they are not showing up, switch the device's mode to MTP mode and see if the video files show up as available for deletion.

    Deleting e-mails

    Hold down the "caps" key (bottom left-most or right-most key) and while holding down the key use the track-ball to move down or up selecting multiple emails ... then just delete as usual.
