Hello Pappy and everyone. I've just bought a new Nokia N91. It's a standard 4GB. The model number is N91-5. The SW version is 1.10. The color is light blue chrome. I'm wondering why it doesn't have ambient light detector in the upper right part of it just above the display, unlike the dark version of N91 I used to see in pictures. But my main concern is that I doubt if my N91 unit has 3G support. How will I know if my N91 is really 3G capable? There is no 3G indicator shown in the display, only the GPRS indicator, though my network supports 3G already. My N91 has an online support in the manual, www.nokia-asia.com/support. I suspect it is China or Asia made because the languages in the phone besides English are Filipino, Malaysian and Bahasa Indonesia. And the user guide wasn't able to mention a single 3G or WCDMA or UMTS word. Is my N91 not 3G capable because it's China or Asia made? Please help me know. Thank you all..
Thanks for the info Pappy,
I always kept the internet connected when I tried to update the sw.
The Nokia updater "searchs for updates" and at the end says: "Unable to read the software update package. Please try again later"
Later the same appears.
I am not sure what is a "CE" mark, if it is a operator mark, the phone does not have one.
It is a weird case, I tried like all kinds of ways to update the sw, with formating the HD and the phone memo, without formating, the same message appeares.
Thanks a lot Pappy!
The 19 TIPS really helped a lot. From that, i thought, to end my misery i need to update my firmware. After updating it was true that everything went fine even that pesky "hard drive is being used...." was fixed right there and then. It was after-all an uninstalled lifeblog software that can't be installed nor removed in my hard drive having the original firmware. With the updated firmware, it automatically installed it without a hitch.
thanks again for helping us.
Mangesh are you using your N91 as the Modem to go get the new NSU and updater to program?
That wont work because the N91 cant be the modem connected to the internet AND be updated at the same time (it would be trying to overwrite itself while it had the connection to the internet)
You need to use another way to connect to the internet (use broadband). If you do not have this at home then try a Intrnet Cafe or something.

So the boys over at uk discussion came back - 0535747 is the generic UK country version so you should be able to load this up no problem. Also you realize that yo must leave your PC connected to the internet when looking for the SW. Some people have made themistake of just downloading the NSU program on their computer, installing it then disconnecting (thinking they had loaded all the sw for the phone at th esame time).
What exactly is NSU saying when you try? Also does you devive have a "CE" mark?
Hi this is a sick phone maaan but when you slide it up its so big but its your choice boys its not about the size its about the quallity and it has great quallaty!!!! i suggest you buy it ITS CHEAP!!!
I downloaded the latest sw version 2.10.xx yesterday using the nokia software updater 1.30 (U should first download the NSU from this site,www.uk.nokia.com
where did you get your N91 firmware upgraded? Did you get it done at a Nokia service centre or did you download it over the air via the nokia website?
Does anyone know what firmware version you can download from the nokia website (ie over the air)theses days? I was wondering if version 2.10 is available via over the air
Well here is the conclusion for people who want to buy a Music phone. This is the best phone for music.. Poeople who complain it hangs need to update their firmware..
This firmware is 100% stable no more slow messaging (no need for SMS Accelerator). Music player features updated supports AAC+/eAAC+ without music skipping n giving wrong time length.
Anybody who wants a cheap music phone then get the N91 with wi-fi n u can download music for free using 3rd party application such as Symtorrent, symella (P2P) u can even download Need for speed carbon lol.. 4GB HD!. the N91 4GB is going get very cheap in December time due to the release of N91 8GB which is going to have a better screen resolution & battery life.
no point going for SE w950i it aint got a camera at all lol. at least N91 got camera :)
I have N91-5(GSM version without 3G and WiFi).It is a great phone .Music through ear/head phones via 3.5mm jack is excellent.
Camera gives good results in daytime even indoors. Video is shooted smoothly at 15 frames /second at 352X288 which can be viewed on PC as MP4 file.
Main problems and soluions:-
1.Works slow ,solution :-keep atleast 300 MB free out of 4 GB ,use filemanager instead of gallery.
2.Often Hangs ,solution :-when it is slow ,do not press anymore keys untill task is completed ,moreover type messages /text a bit slow.
If it hangs ,try to hear the hard disk near the camera ,if u cannot ,remove the battery and restart.
3.Menu key positioned strangely ,solution :-use right thumb to press it ,it requires practice
hi everybody i am interested in this phone is there anybody had any problems with it and what are they
is it possible to upgrade n91 software to a2dp profile ? when it's released of course. thanks
On windows media player 10 my Nokia n91 is never found after i install tne n91 mtp.help, thanks
ianor - Make sure your active theme is not one that was installed on the HDD. If that doesn work see the 19tips that are now on the internet (its amazing who world spreads)
Craig; There was a little file that came on the CDROM (and was originally on the HDD) called i think N91MTP.INI. Copy it to your PC and theh right click install. Also ensure you are selecting the right mode on the N91 when connecting
Kris - I'll see what they say on the UK board
On windows media player 10 my Nokia n91 is never found! if ne 1 can help do so cheers
Everytime I hook my phone to a computer and I choose either mass storage or media player it won't continue and it say "hard drive being used in another application". What does it mean and how can I fix it?
