Chris, the Nokia 9500 is a "general purpose" computing and communications device. That means it is universally programmable with software that can be written for it that WILL work. The fact that you have Mac and can't supposedly open files, and even the fact that you're having difficulties, is no reflection on this lovely phone. There are your difficulties, and you should learn to be more patient with a brand new product! No offense intended. I've done everything you said it couldn't.... deleting contacts, opening "PC" files, etc etc. I've had absolutely no problems at all. Give it a chance! Read the manuals! Look around on the net! It's a complex device deserved of study and practice.
Hello! i have a nokia 7710 and im planning to switch to the Nokia 9500. Based from experience, i find it very difficult to input text with a stylus, so im considering to buy this phone with a keyboard.
Thanks Buddy. Good that you shared your views on the contacts part. It is a hassle and Nokia Should do some thing about it. 9500 is a Cool Phone and to maintain its lead Nokia should invest and solve this problem. I although own a 9300, it also has this limitation. Nokia! are you hearing!!!
i love the phone so much and i even want to buy one for my self and my mum
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
i like it
nokia 9500 is a very good and beautiful.mobile.i like it.
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!!!!!!!
does this phone vibrates?
my best phone ever
so lot of application, games
i love this phone
just e-mail me if you want some of them
