Download the Nokia Software Updater application version 1.4.64 to update your phones.
Note:
As of this posting, my E71 is yet to be upgraded. According to Nokia’s Device Software Update page, “there is no software currently available for that product code (APAC 0560659) via the Nokia Software Update tool.”
I guess I just have to wait ’till Nokia’s server is updated…
Update: Apparently this firmware update for the E71 has no substantial changes :(  It’s more of a “preventive measure” to dis-allow hacking of the phone. What a pity! Not even a fix to the E71’s purplish tinge when taking pictures…… I may be skipping this update for now.
For the E66 owners, the upside-down camera is now fixed. Be aware though that it also prevents you from haking your phone – installing unsigned applications is curently impossible.
You’ve been warned!

    I do not find the newer / lates firmware of E66 has a positive impact on my E66. It is (still) slow and buggy. Sad.

    i just get my E71 grey today, i have one question, my firmware is: RM 343 110.07.127; i want to ask if the firmware update above got the predictive contact search.
    Second question: if i update to the latest software, will the software updater download the default application such as card reader and the language availability, since my e66 lost its card reader and mandarin language after i update it (but i can get it by changing its product code).

    Thanx.
