Nokla anyone?, 18 May 2010Agreed with * v0XT U shud use 3310 instead, Anonymous ROHAN & abraham lincoln - upda... moreThe Ovi maps that came with the N97 phone required me to pay a subscription to use the driving navigation. Since it was built in, I had no reason to download anything. It wasn't until later that I downloaded the updated version of Ovi maps that had the free navigation.
Se guys here i em playing music on big N97 it's awesome for home media music player!!!
Agreed with * v0XT
U shud use 3310 instead, Anonymous
ROHAN & abraham lincoln - update the software, dang...
STUNTMAN - have u ever hear about download? Download the ovi maps, its free.
Friendly advice for new user of N97.
If you bought a new 1 (not second hand) from Nokia centre, check out the software version of your phone. you can use this code *#0000#
Look at the list, IF the SOFTWARE VERSION IS NOT V21.0.045, pls update your software before you use the phone. The older software version get hang alottttt and very very slow.. thx.. yeehaaa..
omg just look at the spec of n8, another EPIC FAIL phone! Destined to be like n97! Because it has 600mhz while its competitor is enjoying on a 1Ghz power! Tsk, tsk, tsk.. I wont be a victim of this sheet again! I wont buy that phone just 1 YEAR LIFE CYCLE for evry phone and thats it?

The N97 is an awful waste of money - it's slow, unreliable, ugly, poorly and cheaply designed and organised, and overall lazy. In a manner of speaking, it's the iPhone's contortionate retard little brother, who wants to follow in his footsteps. All apps are overpriced, stupid, slow, glitchy, and mostly useless; the 'Ovi Store' is complete and udder rubbish, so horribly arranged that finding apps takes even longer than downloading them (a painfully long process, even in reception hotspots). The screen has complete glare in sunlight, the touch interface is very temperamental, the supposedly huge memory space is swamped up in seconds, and the moment you upload one song to the phone, its already dismal performance is halved in speed. The maps application has a mind of its own, and not a very good one; the predictive text function in alphanumeric is less comfortable and much messier than cheesegrating one's own Akille's tendon, and in qwerty function, much worse. The qwerty keyboard lights up in the dark SOMETIMES - less often, however, than one of the phone's various design faults cause a complete crash and restart. The internet browser is a total pain - to access options, there's this stupid semi-transparent arrow symbol THING somewhere, and once you can eventually get your thumb on it, then from there all the lag and crash issues begin. I often find myself restarting the phone because there's no way to close the floating pop-ups flashing "GIANT TITTIES HARDCORE ANAL PORN TITS" at me while I'm trying to show my seven-year-old cousin how to use google on a 'phone'. Won't load anything with flash player, and you can't download it. Movie playback is ... Oh, screw even mentioning that. The battery! The bloody battery! Complete turd, it lasts a few hours at best on full charge. The battery cover is a superthin plastic pop-in sheet, and if that comes off - which it will - the battery is long gone, because it's not secured by anything. Camera is dodgy usually. Video recordings suck, sound quality is vomitworthy. Phone calls, the primary function of a phone, have been shamefully ignored by whatever idiotic quality assurance team Nokia hired - the maximum volume of the reciever can't be distinguished over a nearby sparrow's fart, let alone city noise. The loudspeaker function screws up calls and chops reception somehow. Computer software! It's absolute junk! Slow, space-consuming, pointless, glitchy, and deleted from my computer many of the songs i tried to put onto this abyssmal excuse for a phone. Also, often the screen will lock and NEVER UNLOCK, until the battery is removed. In fact, this is just the first quarter of the list of faults i can name for this phone ... Ah, stuff it, i'm going to buy an iPhone and run this hideous soapbar-sized calculator over on my way home.
me dont use listening music and dont watch videos dont install ovi programs becos my phone will be off
i turned off geo tagging, or i never use the camera. i never use maps. i put away all the widgets. i rarely used the web. i turned off theme effects and use a simple theme, i turnwed off auto rotate. so my n97 runs smoothly!
i recently purchased the N97 MINI its a very very sylish and easyto use phone!!!!! i love it. it has fantastic features and is well set up...
Infact i still have a problem with my screentouch.is still not working.now,i wanted to buy a new one but i am afraid.becos the one i bought is not up to 5 months.
King, 17 May 2010I wanted asking if the nokia n97 has map application.The N97 does have a built-in Map application called Ovi Maps. The version that came with my phone required a fee for the driving navigational feature. The updated version of the application has free navigation. You should upgrade the mapping software right away. I discovered it too late and it costed me a few bucks.
My N97 has serious problems, my screen goes black out of the blue and if the screen shows by miracle then touch response is not working. i took it to vodacare Alberton and VodaWorld Midrand they said it cant be repaired, i just bought an LG KT610 instead, im a bit disappoint frm nokia ryt nw especially since it neva fell of water damage.
I always thought that the Samsung phone I tried out once was the worst cell phone ever until I got the N97 recently. I don't know what went wrong with this phone operating system while they developed it, but it hangs like the old XT computers from the early 90's. Please Nokia sort out the problems and give new software that we can down load. This phone really let you guys look like virgins in the industry. Yes it has nice features, but unfortunately you need the hole day to get something out of it. Do something quick. Capitalize on QUICK!!!
