sachin tendulkar, 07 May 2010it wd b better if n97 is given to me as man of the match awardYou have to EARN the man of the match first !!
n97 sucks! as I have mentioned few months ago, this will be the worst phone ever made by nokia. Good thing i've waited for the N900. Too sad for you guys who own n97. Ebay is 1 click away anywayz. ^_^
Find that it freezes up if I try to use it too fast and/or have multiple apps opened. Phone requires patience!!!
Otherwise, it is a fantastic device. It carries ALL my music so I can listen to it wherever I am, takes great photos and uploads with one touch to my facebook page, GPS with the FREE naviagtion software is an awesome must have, hi speed internet, hard QWERTY keyboard a great and preferred option, and Nokia messaging is great for working when I'm out of the office. Just brilliant!!!! Not to mention all the high quality games that are available on it. So fun I'm addicted! lol
Overall, tech freaks prob wont dig this phone, but if you're a simple consumer like that wants an all in one device, this phone is perfect. Love it.
BTW check out my eBay page if you would like to purchase my ipod, digi cam, Navman gps or my old phone. I don't need these anymore, lol
seriously, i have this phone and the initial firmware was terrible.
so, after an update to the latest release the touch screen works 10 times better, the scrolling and calibration are tighter and more precise and many of the issues like charging, shutting on and off and loss of installed apps have gone away.
the videos play nicely, music is great. camera is ok for a cam phone but is trumped by sony's quality and features.
i had an iphone and this is just a more useful phone. i can do more with it, the keyboard is great and if you compare usefulness this phone is just a better all around. it doesn't have the eye-candy of an iphone but i got tired of that 3 weeks after having my iphone and was a bit annoyed with the limitations and lack of security.
seriously go with either a nokia from the company with the highest sales in cell phones or go for a sony ericsson who has the best innovations.
absolute rubbish phone.worst nokia ph ever and iv had plenty.selling mine getting an e52 instead its practical and fun.
Mido, 06 May 2010Please I need help
On the specification for this mobile RAM : 128 MB
But when i checked my ... more72.7mb is like the storage area.
There is a 50mb partition used as RAM.
Total of about 128mb.
My N97 is already loaded with 56mb of software data, leaving 16mb free.
You can always do a *#7780# to reset the phone memory cache (temporary memory space). But remember to backup your data before doing the above.
i love my nokia n97 but it sometimes stop working and i can't find a good aplication to download in ovi store like app store please help!!!!!!!!!
am so happy to learn that am not the only one going through these problems My N97 is just pure useless from bettery to screen every thing just freezes i dont know how many times the stupid thing froze while a call was coming through soooo imbarassing people think OMG she cant even answer the demn thing.....Nokia hambe wrongo this time
To be honest WORST PHONE IVE USED. Doesnt charge proply got that fixed then started turning off and then couldnt turn it back on. Took it to the repair shop twice now and is now currently at the repiar shop. Very slow, freezes quite frequantly and battery doesnt last for long. Only reason i like it is because of the keyboard.
hey, be warned of fonkong!!.
i have seen a nokia n97 with dual sim & tv.
the poor owner tried to install the gprs & intarnet settings but vodacom did not recognise the fone
some1, 10 May 2010i have the nokia n97 and its really gd but it keeps turning off!!! my freind bought it aswell... moreHow amazing...I thought there was something wrong with my phone only & that I was just unfortunate to get a faulty one. I have exactly the same problems with my phone & I just bought it last week. Charging is a problem & the screen would just lock, causing me to lose calls as well. But yeah! I still love the phone :) So I guess I wont be taking it back

Thabiso, 09 May 2010I have just recently upgraded the handset software to v 20.0.045. Im expiriencing a problem wh... moreI think you have 2 choices:1-try hard reseting youre device but remeber to copy all your important info like contacts and messages to Mass memory.then turn your device,open qwerty and press Shift + Space + Backspace + Turn on/off button at the same time untill you see Nokia Logo and phone turns on.then re-configure your device and install all youre programs.2-try re-updating your device. But i think hard reset will do and the problem will be solved.i shoulde mention the latest update for n97 is Ver.21
