Even though I am quite impressed with features of 9500 still i would like to know that whether it can support 2GB MMC (like 9300i) or higher or not. Secondly, I read it somewhere that there is possibility of its software instability. Another doubt that bothers me is can it play heavy mpeg 4 files like 300 mb or above or not or just simple music video files of 40-50 mb. I will be really thankful if i get some info/clarity on the above mentioned doubts.
Hi jose =)
as far as i know, there's no message counter.
But it does store your sent messages and you can check it from there on how many messages you've sent. so to speak, i can say it plays a message counter.
If you're talking about just a simple application that counts the messages uve sent, there's probably a java application you cna install to do that.
Hi Richards =)
which light are you talking about?
the light on the keyboard? or the external number pad?
if its the keyboard, it doesnt have any light.
if its the external numer pad, have it checked. it should always light whenever you're using the keypad.
does this phone have a message counter?like in 3220 because i want to monitor my text.thanks
how do i use the fax feature on the 9500 communicator. the lights also do not come on at night , what should i do.
people who always complain about nokia's popular phone are just jealous cuz its either they cant afford one or they simply don't know how to use it. lets face it homos... nokia still has the bigger piece of the pie in global market.
as for me im happy with my 9500 and n70. they both make a good statement to the public and made my mobile life easy and convenient. eat your heart out homos...
Hi Jinggoy =)
first of all, let me tell you a simple difference between 9300, 9300i, and 9500.
9500 has wi-fi and has camera
9300i has wi-fi but no camera
9300 has no wi-fi and no camera
...the rest of the features are the same.
now, you mentioned you're a student. if you dont really need wi-fi to access wireless internet in any hotspots in your area, then might as well get 9300. its smaller compared to 9500 so at least you can slide it on your jeans pocket or your bag pocket or something.
if you want wi-fi and not into camera-phones, then get the 9300i. if you're the type of person that has all the gadgets, then for sure you have a good digital camera. so 9300i is best for you. 9500 camera is just for quick snapshots and video capture which you can then send or email right away using its built-in email client. the camera isnt that of high quality image but not really bad.
now if you want both wi-fi and camera in one phone and you dont really mind the low quality of the camera, big size of the phone, and you have enough budget to spend: then get 9500. this phone has bigger widescreen compared to 9300 and 9300i.
my suggestion, get 9300i. its smaller and more compact. EDGE data transfer for 9300i is Class 10 that runs upto 236.8 kbps, compared to 9500's Class 6 which runs upto 177.6 kbps only. another thing is that Nokia 9300i's wi-fi is 802.11g which has fastest maximum speed and supports more simulatenous users. unlike in Nokia 9500 which has 802.11b and has slowest maximum speed and supports fewer simultaneous users.
but then again, it all depends on you. i suggest you go to the nearest Nokia shop and try both 9500 and 9300i to check which one you like better. im just giving my own opinion and i dont want you to get disappointed as you have your own free will =)
hi!i want to buy a new cellphone and i was wondering which one is better the 9300i or the 9500?i'm just a college student but i really like to have a communicator because it can be very useful to me.please explain to me why you choose the phone for me.thank you very much
this phone is HUGE! i was playing around with it today in a nokia retail store, and it is probably the biggest cell phone i have ever held, i could only imagine how uncomfortable the phone would feel in my pocket. i really like the phone alot, it has alot of great features and its a really good phone. but if you want to get it i sugest you get the 9300 or 9300i....the only difference is that there is no camera( but the camera on the 9500 isnt that good anyway, and that the 9300 is smaller which is better, and it is much cheaper. so i sugest the 9300 for people who want this phone
Is there any way we can get the market share figures for Smart phones. I am sure Nokia is dropping in this segment like crazy
well, thats what Nokia is known for: releasing phones that doesnt have everything =)
there's always something missing. I dont know with the N series.
Im just wondering about the next communicator they will produce: 3G? megapixel cam? internal HardDrive? touchscreen capability? but no bluetooth... haha.. kidding! =)
The Reason I am upset with Nokia for not including the vibrator mode , T9 , qwerty keyboard that is not back lit and a better camera in the 9500 is that I am a loyal Nokia customer and would like to buy only nokia communicators but the goof up on small but very essential inclusions has let me to look at and buy other brands.
Every high end phone however sophisticated it may be must have all the basic features to make it a true success.
It is like a rolls royce with no air conditioning....for god sake Nokia wake up and get your house in order with your communicators. Right now I think Palm / O2 / SE have far better smart phones that dont comprimise on the basics
Hi Sebyshoru =)
if you're talking about the keypads outside where you dial a number, there's no option to turn it off or on (as far as i know). its supposed to turn on once you press a key (unless its locked). if your outside keypad still doesnt light even if its active, then you have to have your phone checked or repaired. there must be something wrong with it.
if you're talking about the complete keyboard inside with all the letters, it has no lights at all. there's nothing to turn on there =)
True, Nokia should stay in competition and offer products that are equal or better than its competitors..
what i was trying to say is: if the phone is not enough for you, then dont buy it.
some people will get it anyway because its the latest and they're excited about it and want to be the first one to have it even if they're aware its lacking some features. then after the hype and all, they'll realize its not good enough for them.
Im not against Nokia or SE or Samsung or Panasonic, etc... ive tried all these brands with some features lacking in it but i bought them anyway and didnt complain. why? because im aware of those missing features and i wont be needing them the time i bought it, and i read the specification before i buy it. i dont let my excitement or my impulse to just buy it without getting myself familiar with whats in it.
so, when can you complain?
like when the product for example has a vibrate function then its not working. thats when you complain.
but if the product catalog says that it has no vibrate function then you still bought it and you'll complain it doesnt have one, then why did you purchased it in the first place? get what i mean? =) PEACE!
hello guys, plssss tell me how tu turn on the fron keyboard lights on, pls I am desperat becose i can't figure out ow to do this plsssss hep me :((
Can one load T9 on the 9500 so when I use the number pad i can send sms's with T9
The explanation given for no vibrator / poor camera qualty in the 9500 is sad to say the least ...
Nokia competitors (Sony Erric.. , Palm , Samsung) all offer smart pones with a full qwerty keyboard . In addition they have a vibrator and a good camera.
In this day and age if Nokia cannot produce a relaible smart phone with a vibrator it might as well quit this market .... its competitors will eat it alive....So either Nokia offers the market a great product with all options or market forces will ensure it becomes extint
