can someone (ovi user) please answer me this?
does "free" Ovi mean no internet connection fees? or no network fees of any kind? im in the philippines and we use prepaid mostly, im interested but i wanna avoid hidden load-eaters
Look.. Guys and gals the mud slinging can stop nw..
1stly im frm south africa, in economic terms a 3rd world country.
If here's some statistics that'l make you think a lil b4 making badmouthing brands or services.
In RSA there is les then 4 million landlines compared to more than 30million cellphne users.
Its quite simple y we dont use fxd line broadband, ova mobile internet even 4 email.
Its because its CHEAPER .
Fixed line data charges is over U$30 for 1Gb data cap wit a 384k line.
Gmail also dnt charge 4 their service. Your service provider in my case vodacom charges only 4 the internet connection.

It's straight after you set the timezone, time and date.
Then there's the license agreement that pops up the first time you use maps, after that you get the 'Go online on start up' Yes, No, Always Ask dialogue.
Maybe you got a fake Chinese one that doesn't have the real Nokia software.
I hope OVI doesn't start charging or speading user info for their own $ gain. Ovi can try to combine facebook+gmail in order to gain footing.

Anonymous, 12 Aug 2009Uh, that didnt pop up when i turned on my n97 for the first time.I took it right out of the box.Was the box sealed in plastic?
I sold an N97 this morning the first thing that came up was all this stuff about accepting the Nokia services agreement, if you accept it an SMS comes from Nokia.
You get the same thing on the E71 and E75.

You ever heard of Gmail?
Apple & MobileMe, except you pay for that one but it does a lot more.
hey guys i saw some have said that ovi is only free apart from the data charges applied by the service provider . may i ask you if its nokias fault that your service provider asks for data charges . dont be fools . reaching one million is still a big deal . cuz other so called mobile companies doesnt provide these kind of services to there valuble customers instead they try to suck the blood out of em by selling there so called products . if u hate nokia keep it that way cuz we all know nokia fans dont give a dam .
I use the Nokia messaging sevice or Nokia push email. It is very good and I only pay the gprs that is less then using BIS of BB since I only need to receive and answer some emails. I don't want to make OVI mail since I already use Yahoo and Gmail.
all nokia haters just chill, i don't no other brands at number 1 and support email nokia sells the most handsets like it or not.
I think it will take Ovi a while to come anywhere near Gmail as Ovi service is still raw and requires a lot of improvement.
Don't you need an internet plan added on your phone to access Ovi mail?

Only a million?
Seeing as the first thing that pops up when you turn on a new Nokia is do you want to join "Yes", "No", that's a lot of people clicking no, it comes up even before the settings wizard.
A "free" service?
Free apart from network data charges that is.
[deleted post]Ok that's a good point. But why a million people use Ovi if they have their computers. Must be something else....hmmm.
How about ... teenagers !
Or ... people who can't hang around all day at home and like to keep in touch and don't get access to computers.
Or... during work or class chat and mail.
Come on. You can think of more. Just try :)
[deleted post]You got me!! Just doing it for kicks!! But tell you what, I got more responses than I though I would... all from a single comment! I'ts just so funny seeing how people defend in any way possible, what they identify with... in this case, Nokia!
