Today I will share some useful shortcuts or tricks that I use with my E71.
- Let the phone read your text messages
A long press of the left key, at the top left, will initiate your E71 to read any unread SMS messages that might be there in your Inbox.
- One touch mute
You can mute your phone by clicking the key between the up and down volume keys. Pressing the button again would unmute your conversation.
- See the time and date at any time
When the phone is in the locked state and the screen is blank, hit the Navi Button to display the time and date in a large font.
- Mark multiple messages or emails
Use the shift and Enter key to mark and unmark mails, SMS and Email messages. This shortcut also works for files in the file browser which is present in the office folder.
You can also use the shift and navi keys

- Dial 1-800 ANYTHING

To delete one character at a time after the cursor press the shit and the backspace button.
