I had the 9500 for three weeks, and while the size issues have been talked about before, the functionality was almost perfect. I say almost, because I found a fairly big issue.
I have 1400 contacts, and sync with my computer, sync finally worked OK, although via Bluetooth isn't the fastest around. However, wanting to send ANY message, SMS, MMS, or email, resulted in a three minute wait time for the system to open the contacts address book. Now I know 1400 is a lot, but surely busy business people must have more than that. Nokia offered no help and said I should reduce contacts ....this is their flagship business phone and that was the advice. Shame really .....
Swapped out and bought a Palm One Treo 650, and althoughWi-Fi is missed, the ability to send an email in under four minutes is a greater benefit, plus the Treo is much smaller and lighter.
I still loved the 9500 but could not live with those delays. 1400 contacts took up 537k of space in the 80M memory, and nothing else on there. A real shame, but the Treo is simply fantastic
Can we have a phone that supports 2 sim cards
1 sim for business and number given to everyone
2nd sim private no only for family and friends
Hi there guys, I've got to tell you Nokia 9500 is a great phone but not really the best. To use this phone to its fullest extent, the owner needs to have at least a little bit of background in IT. Nokia 9300, it's mainly for the business execs. I've had not much problems connecting to Internet via Wifi and it is only impossible to connect to a router when the signal is LOW. regarding the absence of vibration, it would be better to get a Bluetooth headset with vibration or any other accessories. There cannot be a PERFECT product other wise it'll be too expensive and sales will go down badly for Nokia. Wait for another couple of years... Then the perfect phone may be there.
I was given a 9500 and when I turn it on it says Nokia. After a few seconds it disappears and the screen goes blank and just remains lit. Why is this and what can I do to get this thing working?
Idea for Nokia,
To match both the desire to have handwriting input and key board inputs make a cell phone with features from a tablet PC ---Swivel screen
does the screen take a while to warm up as nokia says 30secs before it lights up
Nokia..pls launch a new communicator fast not Just a 9500i .... we need something radically better
i've bought the 9500 last 2 days..huraaayyy...!!! at last !!! awesome..it is awesome..the best phone ever..
i love nokia phones generally but for dis 9500 i am dying to have one it, pity me i cannot afford
The nokia 9500 is very good and it nice to have touch-scree for the phone . it will be add more value and user frindly. i love my nokia 9500 comunicater.
The claim to be hands free is not true, no voice tag. Add voice tag and I'll buy it again. Once I got it home and discovered no voice tag, I returned it and got the 7610, what a let down.
this is a perfect phone for everyone, because it's features so excited..so i can take my office everywhere and everytime.. And this phone supported ergonomic QWERTY keyboard, not like PDA's keyboard, so small and not comfortable. i think this is a very very very smart phone..I love it!!!!!!!
my best phone ever
so lot of application, games
i love this phone
just e-mail me if you want some of them

and nokia 6230i,6630,currently havin nokia 6681 and nokia 9300....
NOKIA'S BUSINESS PHONE THAT LETS DOWN THE BUSINESS MAN. No HID profile so it cannot be used with these funky new portable fold up bluetooth keyboards - not even their own! Don't Nokia realise that people are going to want to use such ad-on's or do they think we all have miniture fingers and can still touch type on a keyboard the size of a cigarette packet! Get your act together Nokia or you're going to fall even further behind the competition, the 9500 doesn't even have a spell check to pick up the mistyping caused by the keyboard being so small, why not it's predecessor did? I give up!
Hi all.I've been using 9500 for 3 months.Recently been using P900,P910,9210,7650,7610,6600,3650,sgh-v200,v3688+, and a lot more including PDAs like compaq 5150 coz i'm a phone freak guy.In my experience,I dont think P900 and P910 is very good tho.The battery cant last for a day and the memory stick is really expensive.Just the sound it produces is nice.In terms of software,i think are the same as other symbian products.So far,i like my 9500 and make full use of it including wi-fi with agile messenger.The battery also last longer than my 9210.The keyboard is not too small like O2 IIs or Treo 600.The only problem is when i play games too much (i like playing golf pro tour);sometimes it restarts automatically and a bit bulky.It's not a problem to me.Maybe the built in RAM (cache)or whatsoever is low so it restart.And so far,this is the best phone i had that never fails me in terms of flexibility,reliable and very user friendly.I never overcharged my phone anymore using the desktop charger with sync button.I used desktop charger since my nokia 3210 in 1999.Only a few models dont have desktop chargers that sometimes i have to remember to unplug.So much functions and runs with no problem.To solve slow refresh rate problem like slow in opening message,try to decrease total sms in your inbox and stop using large size of mmc/sd.I recommend largest for a mobile is 512MB and if can, use lower like 256MB.If not,buy extra mmc/sd for other purposes (video clips and mp3s).Just my opinion.Sorry if hurt anyone feelings.Thanks...
