I used to have a Nokia 9210i for one year then switched to the Sony Ericsson P900 because it had Bluetooth, a camera and great sound (as all Sony Ericsson phones). Two P900's after, i switched to its successor, the P910i since it boasted to have a screen with 262k color resolution, Office applications, and some welcome improvements over the P900.
I only used the P910i as my phone and mp3 player because it's camera was not good and even having the 262k screen failed to impress (the 9500 Communicator's 65k internal display is so much better). It's Office applications are merely viewers and yet don't serve well.
I have been really frustrated so I had to get the Nokia 9500.
I've been a happy and contented user of the 9500 ever since I got it. The version of my communicator's software is 5.22 and really works fine.
This device, compared to normal PDA's, Smartphones, and Pocket PC's, is a stand-alone device. You can create, edit or simply view Office documents with ease. I for one have read Dan Brown's books in Microsoft Word format on my 9500. I also have Viking's DVD Player installed and have downloaded several AVI movie clips from DivX which always makes people's jaw drop when I show them the clarity and quality of viewing clips on full screen with my Communicator. My mp3 collection sound great on Nokia stereo earphones -this definitely gets me going all day.
This really is still the ultimate phone/multimedia/business tool, however, Nokia should soon release the improved version which supports 3G, has a better camera with perhaps at least a 2 megapixel just like the popular N series phones and even just a VGA on the communicator interface for video calls. The next communicator should also have a TV out just like Samsung's D600 and a 3.5mm jack to replace Nokia's Pop Port, just like what could be found on the upcoming N91, a better sounding speaker similar to the Nokia 6630's. The outer display should host at least a 262k screen and the main screen should have 16 million colors just like on the upcoming N92.
Nokia knows how to make the ultimate communicator, I'm sure of this, but of course, for business intentions, they might not give us everything so we'll have a reason to buy the next one.
Let us just hope that their philosophy changes.
Please offer us a device we can use for the current technology (you knew 3G was around yet the 9500 does not support it -we could have been making most out of the Communicator's fantastic display). Most of us need an all-in-one device. We don't want to buy several devices just because a particular feature can be found on this one and can't on the other.
The features I mentioned are all existing technologies so there's no reason the suggestions above can't be considered.
The Nokia Communicator line up is always the most expensive so give the top class the finest and latest you could give.
With all these said, I still strongly suggest the 9500 to the people wanting the best. It may not have 3G yet but it still is the best!

hey guys n9500 is not that glamorous nor classy phone. My cousin who's in 1st year highschool has one for taking notes and doing stuff (porn clips), my driver even has n9500 he got it from blackmarket, it cost half the price in cellshops around the Philippines. As for me my second phone is 9500 because its bulky and i use it for taking notes in class and watching movies while waiting for my ride. for those who are so proud about the phone's price or bragging in the forum for having this phone... forget it! this phone is cheap! It has "CHEAP" written all over it.
WEP Key lengths. There are to my knowledge only two standardized WEP key length. 40 bit and 104 bit. For some unknown reason these are sometimes to referred to as 64 and 128.
You can also choose to input your key as an ASCII string or a Hex string.
Hex characters are represented by 4 bits ASCII characters are represented by 8 bits. Therefore
WEP key length = 40(64)bits String = 10 Hex Chars or 5 ASCII
WEP key length = 104(128) bits String = 26 Hex Chars or 13 ASCII. The other to be careful of when inputting your string is CASE.
If you have this sorted and are sure they match your wireless access point. Then once you initiate a WEB session then go to TOOLS and select Conn.manager. Ensure your connection is there. The Wireless symbol W should be enclosed. If you now go to menu and select TOOLS followed by IP address ensure that you have a valid IP address ie within the DHCP range of your WiFi kit. If you see 169.x.x.x then the DHCP is either disabled or failed. 169.x.x.x is an automated response.
Check to ensure your have DHCP enabled. From Control panel select the Internet option and then select your access point then select edit. Click on Advanced. Is Auto retrieve IP set = YES. If it is, again does the IP information shown match that of your access point.
Hope this helps.
I just came back from one of hte South east asian country. I found out that some high school student bring N9500. I don't don't know how, or what for, but I asked them , they said they use this as their main phone.
don't ask me why? maybe it looks cool.....
4 dos who think n9500 is somethin new for asians "90% of N phones manufectured in asia" so better think b4 u spk or even comment
my dad gave this phone to me cuz he cant understand how to use the features and troubleshooting some minor errors. overall its a great phone for the guys with an attitude towards functionality and mobility. great for my projects at school! although processor is abit slow but still its good for me. I used to own several nokias but this, my 38th phone, is definetly something...
I agree with you nokias products are going down the drain. As you rightly mentioned the 9210 is better than the 9500. Every subsequent Nokia phone I have bought has impressed me less and less....
My expectations from Nokia are high but they are not even meeting half of what I am looking at. Their technical specifications are slowly deteroiating...6210 - 13 Hrs talk time battery life new phones 3 - 4 talk time...technology is improving...nokia seems to be going backwards
One of the worst phones i ever bought,I do not advise anyone with this phone,Very Slow,Software gets stuck all the time,I used to have the nokia 9210i before this phone and it worked much better,SHAME ON YOU NOKIA!!
hey iwanna buy nokia 9500 the new one for AU$700 dollar is that cheap???
i bought this phone in dubai, thought it was too expensive in respect to utility aspect. howevever, i since i live in toronto and because of its wifi hotspots throughout the city, this phone is awesome tohave. only complaint is that recently i have been trying to download application such as MSN MESSENGER for symbian OS as well as some other accounting software, but does not install. ..... if someone could email me aboutt this, it would be great. other than that, the chinese people in this city go crazy everytime they see me use it at a cafe, usually theyare the ones with the best cars in toronto. but with this phone, i feel like im driving a lambo compared to their local phones. ....i intentionally sit in cafes crowded with asians....HAHA
