Are you a Mac user? Do you need to get your E71 and Mac working together perfectly? Check out some of these solutions which include multimedia, contacts and messaging, and tethering your E71 data connection with a Mac.
Transfer iTunes, iPhoto, Applications, Themes, & Games
I personally don't have a Mac so I don't have first hand experience with this but I got an email the other day from a reader (thanks Vic) about the Nokia Multimedia Transfer Tool. The lastest version (v1.3) supports the Nokia E71 allowing you to keep your Mac and smartphone in sync.
From the email,
I've been reading your blog after recently getting my own E71, and you're doing a great job. I don't know if you use a mac but I just downloaded the new updated version of Nokia Media Transfer v1.3 and it supports the E71. You have the possibility to sync your bookmarks with safari, add photo's to iphoto and even create your own play list in itunes. I think this is a giant step in the right direction for Nokia when it comes to integrating their products with Apple. Until now you had to use the Nokia pc suite if you wanted to get music onto a phone, or transfer the files through blue tooth. Both methods became tiring and tedious.
The Nokia Media Transfer suite could definitely change things for mac users out there as it's as smooth as it gets.
One thing to bear in mind, when transferring a heavy load of music or data is use a usb cable as it can take a hella long time through bluetooth.
Basically this tool allows you to transfer to and from iPhoto, iTunes, and add games and applications.

Sync Your E71 Contacts And Calendar with iSync
From Nokia's iSync page,
Get organized with iSync. If you've got a compatible Nokia phone and a Mac, iSync helps you synchronize your data. Take the hassle out of managing data across devices by downloading changes and updating your phone or Mac when required.

Tether Your E71's Data Connection To Your Mac
If you ever have your Macbook on the road and need a quick data connection you can tether the E71's data connection to your laptop. I do this once in awhile with my $15 unlimited data plan with AT&T and have never got in trouble. Just don't spend all day doing it and download huge files. I just use it for blogging or internet browsing. *Use at your own risk.
