Hi I bought the N97 as a relplacement for my N82. Was allways a BIG nokia Fan and therefor wanted the best. I am now stuck in a 2 yr contract with an absolutely lousy phone, It froze like 10 time this month, its gps doesnt pick up streets even after ovi map updates and internet back up, it is so slow you cant believe and you have to waight for simple apps to open ??.. Its a large lump of old tec . I will now be going back to my N82 to use as I found this phone to be better than the n97. Sorry nokia youve lost a customer for ever
sorry forgot to put my name :) I am the one who asked pro's and contras in the previous post.
So N900 N97 or N97 mini? Or 5800xpressmusic??????
Hey all,I am urgently in need of some feedback. What are the pro's & contra's of the Nokia N900? I need a new mobile, and can't choose between Nokia N900, N97 mini and N97? My brother tells me to buy the old 5800 xpress because he has one and he loves it and never crashes,wifi is perfect,everything works just great plus it's way cheaper than N900 and N97.
I read in some reviews that N97mini includes however a bigger internal (phone) memory and an improved keyboard than the N97.
Important for me is; bluetooth, radio, normal picture quality, flash-light, wifi, 3G, low SAR, Radio, nice applications, good sound, good touchscreen, clear pixels.
A good battery quality is vip; I had the previous nokia and had to charge it almost every day!
It would be nice to be able to view Word and Pdf files or Document Viewer in the phone.
I am not much of a gamer, so duno if there is any difference for that in the mobile phones?
I also dont think I will need 32GB of memory, 8GB would be more than enough.
Crashes etc happen in all phones if you use too many appl at once so I am not relying on that.
Any suggestions from ppl using these phones?????
my best friend stole my n97 so bad he stole it on the day he was leaving the country
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2010Well my friend has this phone and I was also planning to buy this phone, but I was disappointe... moreThe N97 uses a resistive touch screen. I do find the touch screen is more suited to be used with a stylus than your fingers. I have no trouble selecting things with my finger tip, but when I have to do things like drag items or scroll, I end up using my finger nail.
Capacitive touch screens like on the iPhone I find are better suited for using your finger tip. Scrolling and dragging objects with capacitive touch screens is much easier when using your finger tip. You just cannot use a stylus or wear gloves.
my N97 is geting alle the time in facebook, is tis rigt? i like my phone i really a presiete it but let me tel you some thing. alle the phone is just westing the time. we found any kind of phone but non of them is beter. what we use in the fone?(pictuers,musique; phoning, Alarm Inthernet, and wtha hels? nothnig. how much we pey?you know the prise. but this is inbelivebel to live like this. you are making us pey the bigers facture and just keping the phone for 4 monts of the 4 monts its must have som ting wrong.
fring has been a great compliment to nokia users as it allow to access all address books and even brings them into one screen and it even works for skype:D
but i would like to know if there will ever be an app. for msn messenger direectly in the near future.
Another question: will nokia be releasing a 'S' series soon? There are some rumours about the S series being real high end, so im expecting something that would make me say OMG!!
I got this phone regardless of reading negative reviews on it and im glad i got it, as it has a lot of the features i want in a phone especially the large 32 G hard drive. Upgrading the firmware immediately is recommended to improve performance. Admittedly it does freeze on the odd occasion, but is rectified by simply restarting the phone. My only gripe is that an AV cable wasnt included in the box. The phone is easy to use, looks great and good for people who are tech savvy.
jeuff, 08 Jun 2010hey whats that hole on the top left side of n97? whats the use of that?thats for the stylus string thing. :)
Well my friend has this phone and I was also planning to buy this phone, but I was disappointed with the touch screen.
Probably itz best to add more money and go in for the IPhone.
hello.is there any dvd player software for n97.if yes then plz tell me the link to download it.plz tell me.if u've got it then plz send it to me at
i'll be grateful to u.plz reply fast
jeuff, 08 Jun 2010hey whats that hole on the top left side of n97? whats the use of that?It's the proximity sensor. When you're on a call, your head pressed up against the phone. This sensor detects that and locks the screen so you do not inadvertantly start pressing things, launching applications or hang up during your call.

rudy, 07 Jun 2010hi guys. i am planning to get a new phone and i have narrowed it down to e72, BB Bold 9700 and... moreThe latest firmware for the N97 is stable and smooth. You definitely need the latest firmware as I found that the N97 is annoyingly sluggish and unstable without it. Upgrading the firmware should be the first thing you do.
One thing you need to be aware of is that the email widget stopped working for me after I upgraded to the latest firmware. To get it working again, you need to download and install it again from the Ovi site. This was the only thing I actually needed to reinstall. None of my other apps were affected at all by the firmware upgrade.
