Anonymous, 01 Nov 2008Can someone please tell me to use DVB-H if a tv sim is needed in South Africa.Yes A special sim is needed wich is called the USIM.......
What is a USIM?
In order to continue receiving the DVB-H trial signal, you will need to swap your current SIM card for a new USIM. A USIM will be provided free of charge to all trial recipients of the Sagem myMobileTV handset or you may Purchase one from MTN service stores near you.
USIM stands for Universal Subscriber Identity Module. A USIM looks exactly like a SIM and identifies a subscriber to the network in exactly the same way as a SIM does. However, a USIM has a higher data storage capacity and is better suited to more sophisticated mobile applications, such as DVB-H and 3G. In the DVB-H environment a USIM operates in much the same way as a DStv smartcard does in your decoder or PVR.
I dont knw how u get the Vodacom USIM ...im on MTN and planing 2 Get THe N96 next month

This new phone of nokia is very bad battery,all features become useless,here in norway nokia is starting going down

All in all a pretty pointless exercise but yes you are right the battery will last longer.
DANIEL, you are right!!! Maybe N96 is nothing to write home about, but it is a good phone and if one knows how to use it all is ok. For instance, I upgraded the software over the air and things DID improve!!! Better and quicker camera, improved battery life (3 days - 3G disabled). PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THEIR PHONE AND HOW TO USE IT, AND THEN TALK...

Whats worse is that he seems to do it every week. Or the dude who is a few posts below who said 'another childish nokia phone'. Thats just plain silly.
Yes, there are those nokia fanboys who go to other forums and simply bash the other manufacturers solution saying things like 'this phone sucks, nokia rocks' or 'what a waste' or 'Worst decision i have ever made-im sticking with my nokia'. That is simply senseless and disrespectful.
I agree that the voting process is really messed up these days and very few phones actually get evaluated properly. Those that gain the most attention like iphone are the rather unlucky due to their controversial nature. The phones which no one seems to notice seem evaluated better.
I guess the 5800xm is showing just how much people want a symbian touchscreen phone. Its quite shocking to see how popular its become (More than 8500 votes in a month). Personally, apart from the lack of a lens cover, i dont see anything wrong with it, at least according to the reviews and videos. It has received its fair share of bashing with statements like 'iphone copy' or 'its a test dummy-wait for the n-series version'. But i have to admit that the bashing there isnt as much as the n96 forum or other phone forums.
Im just encouraging guys to post useful statements. No bashing of any phone or manufacturer.
I don't know what peoples problem is. It is a good phone. It is very loud, clear, good resolution and graphics, great media playing centre, very quick GPS...... - Ok it is not a huge upgrade from the n95i, but who cares, it is still the flagship of the nokia fleet!

hav u seen how innov8 bash her with envy, there like nuts, so desperate to gain attention
the buttom line is, why are they coming here to bash, to seek attention because they envy n96's attention big time
innov8 page is lucky because only owners visit that page and talk about it, nobody seem to care about that page except the owners
n96 is flooded with envious innov8 fanboys who cant accept the fact that their phone failed to get attention and failed to sell more than n96.
envy is the very reason
Another childish phone from Nokia. I'll buy one for my 12 yr old kid to start playing with electronics
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970n96 is a phone that everyone loves to talk but only few will actually buy. u know why people discuss about n96 here in this page? becos its n96. and not becos it has 5mp camera, nor, 16gb, nor dvb-h. people talk about this phone becos it carries the flagship title of nseries. innov8 doesnt need to be advertised here. look at the innov8 page. there seems to be more innov8 users here in gsmarena than n96 users.
I saw the samsung i900 an the innovo8. There are good phones too. They batery life is better. But the N96 wins on aplications and operating speeds. It`s also smaller and the display quality looks better. If you are not a specialized photographer, you won`t notice the difference between 5 and 8 mpx. N96 Start up faster. the sound quality its better too.
