Use Nokia PC suite and nokia software updater. Make sure u have latest versions of both. Back up ur data... U must have stable internet connection. Follow the instructions.
just updated the new firmware somehow the fota could not identify the new firmware but you can updated the new firmware via pc. overall, it's snappier and touch response improved... still fiddling with it
i have waited so long for this phone until when i got to Optus, the seller warned me not to buy it. He said that its very laggy, and freezes, and of cos many other HIS personal point of view on the phone (which i don care) its either iphone 3Gs or N97. i want N97 so badly but only to see so many telling me its bad. my friend got it for only a week and is on her way to selling it because it freezes so much.
i used to love nokia so much until sony got me, and now i am stuck again.
i really should go into optus and asked if they do a replacement with a DIFFERENT phone if N97 plays up on me.... hummm...
Can somebody please tell me how to update the software, ive tried using the Nokia software updater, ive tried on the phones device update, ive rung Nokia, they were no use, ive rung Phones4u and they couldnt help me either. I have 2 days left to decide if i want to keep the phone or not but i would like to update the software first, can anyone help?
I just got my N97 on the weekend, I did the software update straight away, took me 4 days to work out how to answer the thing and I couldnt see that covered in the manual, I just hope that they do more updates for it as I think it needs it, cant seem to get the quick office to work it just keeps freezing. not that I would use that app much but why have it on there if you can use it?
Overall I am pretty happy with it!!
Ya this cell phone is crap ,it seems as if nokia is throwing same kind a cellphones with different casings....
Why would HTC and Android be listed as tags for this post?? Anyways N97 is a rip off, you get slightly better hardware (and it is slightly, the 4**MHz processor is a joke, the upcoming E72 has a 6**MHz processor and that doesn't even have to deal with the complex touch UI, and the battery is the same as the E71?? Shouldn't a top of the line Nserise with such a premium price innovate instead of just bringing re-heated leftovers, i mean the camera module is 2years old!!)for almost twice the initial price of the 5800 and no innovation. I love the Nserise, i have an N95 8gb and i remember when i first bought it 3years back, back then Nserise meant something now all that comes to mind is Oh how the mighty are fallen...
I'm sorry but this phone was pure garbage. Waste of my money and time. And already almost half the price on craigslist.
Unfortunately Nokia become a looser company because of: they are not creative enough, MOST of the NOKIA handset always comes with defective software or hardware since 2006 up till date and regards to all Nokia research lots of peoples says that Not right!!!!! Nokia make test for one mobile phone of every 1000, so do u think the factory staff are free to test every phone, that’s why NOKIA quality is terrible,
Samsung and LG is way better folks try them and you be impressed by the results
Will Nokia release a second version of this phone like they did for the N95 but with 256 ram? if they did I would buy it in an instant.
Also, can anyone confirm if the phone is compatible with a bluetooth mouse? (for tv web navigation)

Read on about the "best phone" :)
At the SyScan security conference being held in Singapore this week, Macintosh security expert Charlie Miller has outlined an SMS-based vulnerability in the Apple iPhone that could let attackers listen in on calls, access the GPS unit to locate the phone, execute arbitrary programs, and even let the phone participate in distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attacks against other Internet sites via the Internet.
@ ahmed, im myself an on and off nokia user for past 5 years... and no im not takin iphones side... just increasingly beginnin to hate both companies for takin their customers for granted... zats all.
I am pleased with the new firmware as the phone is working much faster now and its such an easy phone to use.
@beta release... comon man... atleast nokia do somwthing to fix the bugs without getting you returing to your retailer.. an't u aware of the new iphone HEATING UP issues...
HOW TO UPDATE THE FIRMWARE..
you will have to do it via PC... go to nokia.com, install the software updater from there. Launch it, and it will guide you further.
Not a very lenghty process.
the update firmware is good, smoother and quick than before... the touch effect has improved too..
