Is the Nokia E71x considered a smartphone if so I need to change my plan.
Yes it is.
It is a smartphone. It requires a data plan.
P.S. xpress mail is no longer supported.
My wife bought one of these and then 2 months later the email is not working, I went through the email form ATT that said how to change it, but I'm not seeing the same options on her phone
Xpress Mail was phased out, go to the AppCenter/Media Mall and get Mobile Mail, it's free.
