Hi if you are having problems with gmail on your symbian device saying “this program requires a working data connection”


change your access point eg using the E71 or E72, and I changed it by going through these steps:

Installations -> App. Mgr. -> Select Gmail -> Click Open -> Go to Access Point.

NOKIA E71 Turn Off Breathing Light

I have a E71 and the notification light is always on breathing light. I have no emails, sms, mms, misscalls or voice messages. I even turn off the notification light off for everything and is still breathing. It is kind of annoying not to know why is breathing.

It’s the “Breathing light” that you need to turn off, rather than any notification:

Tools –> Profiles –> General (or whichever profile you use) –> Personalise –> Breathing light –> Off

Try this and see if it helps.
