Nokia E71 Firmware Version 400.21.013 Released, Mostly Fixes & Improvements

Over the Thankgiving Day holiday weekend Nokia decided to release the new E71 firmware, version 400.21.013. The timing makes perfect sense because Thanksgiving is a North American holiday and the firmware wasn't released for the E71-2 which is the North American version. At least it's not showing up on my Nokia Software Updater screen. Maybe some of you are having better luck. Congrats to the rest of the E71 Fanatics around the world who are able to update.

Before You Ask...
NO! This update does not add Feature Pack 2 as found on the Nokia E72.

Backup Your Data
As always - be sure to backup your data before the update. You will lose all of your applications and settings so keep that in mind and give yourself some time to re-install all of your favorite applications & themes.
