This phone used to suck.
But ever since it got the kinetic scrolling update it's become monumentally better.
Could use a bit more polishing up and it is still a bit slow.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2010mine is too, i think it's a software problemI think I found out what is the problem.
If you have a theme uninstall it and put the default theme back on. Then put the mp3 song on C:\ and be sure it is small in size...not more than 1.5mb.
Than change the ringtone. I think this will work..
For now it works on my N97.
And I have to say...I have no other problems with my beautiful N97 except the ringtone..which I consider as minor problem.
Love the N97...
It has been biggest diaster for Nokia China since release of N97. Silly bugs or hardware problems arise every other day, now its a gone legend of the E63 era.
ripping age old clients has been bad name.
todays restart mem card trick been used shame.
my battery seems to die in like a day and that realy sucks. any ideas on how to pro long battery life?

Chris_Skylock, 27 Feb 2010You sir/madam has a defective lens. Please have the time to get it replace. I am 5000% your... morethe whiteness on the side of the screen while taking a picture with a flash is not the lens i have had my entire lens recently replaced and it has that problem i believe it is because since the lens and flash light are recessed that the flash reflects off the plastic surrounding the lens and causes the white effect
My n97 got sliding prob. when i slide up, the right part is quite shaky tho... any idea how? n..... i wana know, when do we normally slide up? i think it's not necessary to do that? even when u call? sms? surfing the net maybe? lol.
Is there any application which can enable the N97 to be used as a web cam? if any one has used that, let me know.
