I can't relate to all of you guys because all my music files stored in my N91 are downloaded from the internet, the files ranging from 2MB - 10MB in size. I don't do anything to compress or edit preferences of the MP3's. I just download them all, transfer to the phone and listen to them that's why there's a quite noticeable variations and difference in the audio quality of the songs but overall it's pretty nice. I guess if I use a different headphone the sound will be much better. Do you guys use the web browser in surfing the net? I have used it several times. The problem is that I will close or kill the Music application to free more RAM, and the available RAM will reach up to 14MB. But when I start the "Web" browser and start the browsing session, some 7MB of RAM is hit so half of available RAM is already used. And as I go on browsing I notice that the application eats more RAM until my phone hangs and I will have to resort to remove the battery and reinsert it again to get the phone back to normal. Well, I installed Handy Taskman to monitor the RAM for that. One more thing is, I downloaded a zipped file of the SMS accelerator from other site and the zipped file contains SMS accelerator apps for different Nseries phones. I accidentally installed the one that should be for N93 and it worked okay. That's all. Thank you..
as i told you i installed sw 2.10 succesfully from the internet cafe.but after upgradation i faced some new good as well as little bit truobleing things which i never face before.Fs caller is working well after update instead of that its not work proparely before the upgrade its also same to fs clock.Some application is working proparly now,but lot of themes are says not compatible for ur device,i m wondering i used all those themes and applications finely before update my phone.why its not working now?. As well i faced a new problem when i m going to deactivate the running applications by pressing the menu button for a while my phone is going to hanging badely,this problem is occured after the upgradation.plz tell me what will i do to solve all those problems paramanately. thanks.
To Aaron: You can doiy via a dial up although I suspect it will take a while. When you do the upgrade you will lose the data on the phone and It is recommeneed that you format the HDD to clean out any applications that end up being "half installed" when you reflash (see the tips link I posted) As for themes just remember do not install them on the HDD and use them. Finally an n91-5 can never be made into 3G or WLAN since the chips are not on the device.
To Mangesh - Good stuff and welcome to 2.10
Rusty - You may lose the stuff that came on the phone but if the DRM rights were not backed up via pC suite before you ran the updat ethey wont play anyway (also Live 8!? cmon thats old stuff I deleted that 4 montsh ago :)). Note from PC suite I believe you can just disconnect since it uses OBEX (?)
To Nitin - The changes from 2.00 to 2.10 that I know of are sms accelerator is no longer needed to stop the sms slow down bug that creeps up over time, also there was a compatibility problem with 2.00 for some 3rd party apps that was fixed in 2.10.
To Nick : about email - I have no ised since I use web email.
pappy, your posts have been very helpfull, thank you for your input.
I have one question relative to N91 e-mail settings: I read on some forum that "automatic header retrieval" option has to be enabled. Why is this important? I tried to keep it enabled, but the phone always disables it when I exit "messages" folder. And the phone always prompts that "enabling automatic header retrieval may increase your phone bill"?!
Im from AUS. I heard from many many forums and reviews saying that N91 users aint able to upgrade the firmware to the latest one. As far as I know, there might be the case where your phone courier restrict the upgrade.
By the way, I would like to ask if I need to erform any action to diconnect the phone from PC suit. Okay, I know I need to click the Safyly remove the hardware if I connect the phone as the HDD in Windows. Do I need to do anything before disconnecting it from Nokia PC suit?
Please recommend a web or wapsite where I can download themes compatible with the N91,176 x 208 resolution.. There are a lot of S60 3rd edition themes in mobile9.com but I guess they're more suitable in the 240 x 320 pixels resolution like that of the N73.. Thanks...
rusty are you from the uk, as i tried to update mine but they say mine is the latest and i have the old version 1.10, do i have to go on a different country to get the 2 version

Hi Pappy and others,
I checked my firmware and it was v1.10.030, which was a pretty old one. I immendiately upgrade it to 2.10.013 via Nokia Software Update. Just a few things I wanna ask here. I am sorry if they have been discussed before. I tried and couldn't find an stright answers.
I have this new N91 and saw the Real Players and some other songs for me to play. I guess they all come with the phone. So, if I format the HDD, will all these default stuff be erased as well?
I am thinking to do a full format since I dont have much stored in the phone. Will it improve the performance?
If I format it and after that, do I need to do the software upgarde again?
And the backup from the PC suits only backup the things which would be erased when formatting or upgrading.
The thing I concern here is:
Do I need to format the HDD to improve the performance?
Will the default stuff, such as Real Payer etc, be earsed after formatting?
Make your own equailzer namely "low bass"
Keep at these levels (counting the lowest as 0)
6, 5.5, 5, 4.75, 4.75 ,5 ,5.5 ,5.75
This is just a rough idea of my equaliser.
Keep stereo widening ON always ,when listening thru headset ,when loudspeaker is used turn it off .
By the way ,do you know about this loudness option and its effect.
I installed a latest sw version 2.10 now.After hitting *#0000#,it shows,
My friend showed me N91 8GB prototype with Nokai AD-42W bt stereo gateway. He hooked it up to home stereo and played music over bluetooth. Guys, you have to hear it to believe it. I thought no way quility would be that great. I'm really impressed! 8Gig of music and play it on your stereo no wires this is cool!!! When it is coming out?????
I'll install a new sw 2.10 tomorrow,is this a good move to go for 2.10from 2.00?.any compulsion to format the whole hdd?.
I have user nokia n91 with latest firmware v2.10.013. i have about 1000 songs mp3(128kb) and i listen about 5-6 hours music per day with headset. what equalizer is the best in your opinion? must option "Stereo WIDENING" be on or off? what is this?
I listened for about 1 month with "Stereo WIDENING" and equalizer at rock and now i think that my headset isn't how it was at begining. are nokia headset soo bad? which is the best combination between nokia headset and equalizer and audio settings?
pappy can u help me?
I've got a couple of questions.
1. I'm afraid to upgrade my phone's SW version on my own 'cos I might make a mistake and the consequence could be fatal..Can I upgrade the SW using dial-up internet connection?
2.If I upgrade the SW,will all the data and files be lost in the phone memory and HDD?
3.And if I upgrade my N91-5 to rhe latest SW, will it have 3G and/or Wi-Fi?
Please answer.. Thanks..
Not sure about the N91-5 confusion, in India people seem to have been informed but maybe its different where you are. If it makes you feel any better..I opted out of my 3G package three months ago because for me edge/gprs is plenty fast. WLAN - its cool but after you have surfed for a while...its more of a novelty to show your friends. Let me knwo some details and we can see if we can help you update to 2.10.
From what I hear the N91 5 was clearly stated as GSM only and No WLAN in India but not sure about the Phillipines. The issue syou describe are related to the old sw. You say you cannot upgrade too 2.10 - why? You can do it at home using NSU or take it to a care centre.
