I agree with you nokias products are going down the drain. As you rightly mentioned the 9210 is better than the 9500. Every subsequent Nokia phone I have bought has impressed me less and less....
My expectations from Nokia are high but they are not even meeting half of what I am looking at. Their technical specifications are slowly deteroiating...6210 - 13 Hrs talk time battery life new phones 3 - 4 talk time...technology is improving...nokia seems to be going backwards
One of the worst phones i ever bought,I do not advise anyone with this phone,Very Slow,Software gets stuck all the time,I used to have the nokia 9210i before this phone and it worked much better,SHAME ON YOU NOKIA!!
i bought this phone in dubai, thought it was too expensive in respect to utility aspect. howevever, i since i live in toronto and because of its wifi hotspots throughout the city, this phone is awesome tohave. only complaint is that recently i have been trying to download application such as MSN MESSENGER for symbian OS as well as some other accounting software, but does not install. ..... if someone could email me aboutt this, it would be great. other than that, the chinese people in this city go crazy everytime they see me use it at a cafe, usually theyare the ones with the best cars in toronto. but with this phone, i feel like im driving a lambo compared to their local phones. ....i intentionally sit in cafes crowded with asians....HAHA

I have recently purchased the 9500 needing a solution smaller than my laptop for the amount of data I receive / send.
I cannot recommend this phone enough - with the 1gb mmc installed acts not only as my "mini office" - but a great mp3 player ( although a little on the quiet side).
If you are in need of something with attitude (although rather large) and are serious about the work you do - this is the phone.
However my one complaint is when transfering data from the phone to PC Office 2003 just will not display the documents correctly,
Let me clarify that previous post.
When i say it can't be used as a Fax modem. i mean To send a fax from a Notebook or a Desktop PC using the Nokia 9500 as a fax
For those are planning to dish out AED 2700 to buy this phone please note.
Its a great phone if you are going to use this as a stand alone device.
After much research and forum searching over the past month I have discovered that the N9500 cannot do the following things.
a) The Nokia 9500 / 9300 does not allow Class 1 , 2, or 2.0 Fax support, which means you cannot use the Phone as a Fax modem to send and receive faxes.
b) The Nokia 9500 takes 70 minutes to open an Excel sheet with 50 rows and 6 columns of data. (Royghly 150kb). It first converts this file to epoc format. No there is no PC software provided by Nokia to do this on the PC before sending it to the Phone.
c) The same goes for Word documents.
Besides these MAJOR problems, yes The N9500 is a very expensive Phone that pretty much does very little for the price
i believe 9500 can only have 256mb for its MMC, if im wrong just upgrade your SW ver. to 5.22... Im using this one and haven't tried 512mb yet.. ths fon very useful
I have got this cell a month back. Its really a nice thing to keep.
The worst part is - It does *NOT* have the vibration feature. Many of the calls are missed just because of this lacking feature while I am riding on my bike :(
Rest is all fine till today :)
CHEERS for n9500 owners!

I am a Namibian and would like to know if the 9500 has a dictionary and a feature for spelling. My 6310i had both. A great phone, but could do with a better camera and can't use MP3 as ringtone. Please let me know. NAMIBIA LAND OF THE BRAVE.
