Sharma P, 18 Dec 2009I am planning to buy Nokia N 97. My application is only usage of mail. Please give feed on... morelike another poster said, if email is very important to you, you might want to try out other phones on the market first. The native email client of the n97 is quite pathetic imo, nowhere near good enough for a flagship device. It's ugly, way too elementary. Just pick up an n97 and try out the email, you will see immediately what i mean. There are of course 3rd party email apps, but a smartphone these days should have a good email client out of the box imo.

Please give feed on... moreHi sharma. in my opinion, if email is the most important thing to you, then i wouldn't suggest the n97. the default mail client is rudimentary at best, and while Nokia Messaging (a free email app) works well it is very limited in that you can only access the last 3 days' email, and it uses phone memory. other popular mail clients like profimail and emoze work well but profimail isnt free and free version of emoze only has one email address. if you're happy to pay then fine. i would suggest trying out the phone first, as there are phones out there with better built in mail clients.
now to your questions.
a and b. sending and receiving mail speeds are fine. i use nokia messaging and receive mail immediately.
c. the latest firmware has stabilized the phone but there is still some occasional lagging or hanging. i updated to v20 a month ago and in that time my phone has hung 2 times. not too bad imo.
d. my phone has never overheated or felt too warm.
e. i have had the phone for two and a half months and my keyboard keys are as good as new. i have not really heard of any complaints or problems with durability of keyboard.
carlos, 18 Dec 2009my phone seams to be warmer then any other phone. it feels like there is a short somewhere is... morei don't think it's normal. it shouldn't get that hot. mine doesn't. as for the battery dropping a bar in 5 hours, it depends on how you use it. if you use it heavily during that time eg. wifi and online tasks, then i think that's quite normal. the battery is ok, but not fantastic. if you want, you can conserve battery by changing network mode to gsm and decreasing screen brightness. i have found that this has improved my battery.
I am planning to buy Nokia N 97. My application is only usage of mail.
Please give feed on the following

c. Is there hanging problem?
d. Is the Nokia N97 gets warms when we talk for 5 to
e. Is the letter is on key pad is durable?

Frustrated, 18 Dec 2009Its quite frustrating that this phone cannot be purchased in white from all service proivders ... moreI was JUST at MTN in Cape Town and they had the white N97 in stock. If you look I'm sure you will find. Or they can get you one at another branch.
Larry, 18 Dec 2009didn't mean to make you feel stupid, sorry if i did. Just trying to help. I only found out abo... moreWe all need help, sometimes, wether we know it or not so I appreciate you for reminding me what to do. The memory card trick really works but I do frequently change batteries as I dont like USB charging and Im using my Nokia E90 as my charger device.
Im going to write to Nokia about the OVI glitch or if it's possible my phone is a defect but it's over 2 weeks as I purchased it last Nov. 21, 2009. So the store cant replace it now. Whout would Nokia possibly do as I can re-flash my phone same way. I dont think replacing it will do the trick as other countries is doing. This is Philippines, COMPANIES WILL NOT REPLACE BROKEN PRODUCTS. Pfffttt.
Its quite frustrating that this phone cannot be purchased in white from all service proivders in south africa, i.e. MTN, Cell C, Vodacom. What a waste!
Beeso, 17 Dec 2009I have tried push email, it is not working,eventhough i have gmail account has anyone tried it??what email client are you using? I use nokia messaging and emails come through practically instantly. I have a (free) yahoo account and also a hotmail account. Both work perfectly.
1DRAKE1, 17 Dec 2009Hi. A friend of mine had a software upgrade on the n97 and now her home screen gets small and ... moreI don't understand what you mean by "the homescreen get small and then big again"? Yes, when you run your finger or stylus across the homescreen, the content does disappear and reappears if you run something across it again. Is this what you mean? This isn't something that's new to the v20 firmware update.
Chris_Skylock, 17 Dec 2009Im not stupid and I know the memory card trick but I do want to replace the batteries without ... moredidn't mean to make you feel stupid, sorry if i did. Just trying to help. I only found out about the memory card trick a couple of weeks ago myself. Out of curiosity, have you contacted nokia about the ovi problem? What did they say?
Beeso, 17 Dec 2009I have tried push email, it is not working,eventhough i have gmail account
has anyone tried it??I think push mail should be activated by the operator. Most operators put sort of a firewall to prevent access to mail servers, so that they can sell their blackberry service. Anyway, it doesen't work for me neither.
Is your pdf reader a trial version or the full version? Do you know of a free pdf reader?

Hi. A friend of mine had a software upgrade on the n97 and now her home screen gets small and then big again when she drags the stylist over it. The screen gets small and then comes back empty? I also had the upgrade but my phone won’t do it in the same way. Is there something that I should be setting up?
Shocked to see stylus short flat with string missing, to my suprise I got same IME no set 45 days late, had been waiting for price to reduce.
Not satisfied after reading everyday comments with performance and screen resolution. Slow as against the Hype created. This shows that N97 has become outdated, with intro of new processor and resolution plus software in market. Nokia farewell from my side. I would stick with this set for years. My hard earned money has been robbed,as 3rd day resale is half.
Hi guys. The N97 that I have has, a 14-day, trial version of the adobe reader. Is it the case for all the packages? Is there a free pdf reader on the net?
Larry , 17 Dec 2009That's very strange that only nokia's websites seem to be screwing up your phone. can you down... moreIm not offending you or anything but I want to tell you that I do research things before posting anything.
So far, it's normal when I downloaded facebook again. If I download anything from the Store or activate the Ovi share and mail, it will (possibly) kill my phone.
Im glad I got a back up copies of my files except for Fring. It got Yahoo! Messenger support and I need it badly.
I cant install Windows Live for some reason. sigh. but that's an option for me.

I dont have anything installed except for my back up OVI Store files downloaded.
I dont know if I can download anything from other websites but OVI really is a pain in the head and I have it now. Im forced to re-download Facebook again as it got errors.
