I bought N79 more than a year ago.
i faced only two problems.

1. Sometimes it hangs and menu doesn't work.
2. Recorded video hangs continuously.

Hi., I'm using Nokia N79 I find lot of problem
1. If i capture any video mean while that time handset hanging and restarting.
I contacted to Nokia Care Center 10 times. 2 times went Head office but no proper result.
2. If i install any application means it was affected OS.
3. Some times profile not creating....

Have been using N79 since past 18months... excellent phone... great features...
the only problem which i faced of late was that the screen color kept changing again n again within 2-3 seconds.
Finally that also was sorted out by cleaning the sensor on the express on back cover with a soft cloth.
