i think this phone is just perfect for internet performance such as chatting, browsing, download, email, etc. its features support everything you need in computer. it's just good
i have this phone rest al is cool but if i open a picture on the web and wish to save the same i am not able to do that if the option for save picture is not highlighted
i can save the attachments in the mails but not the .jpg's which are opened in a web page need help
the phones good. No doubt. Can anyone let me know if T9 text input is possible, so messaging can be used faster whithout opening the phone.
I now have the phone. I really like it, lots of great features. Many great apps, the browser is much better than any I've seen in PDAs.
I just bought a BT headset and think I wasted my money since the 9500 doesn't have voice tags. Kinda defeats the purpose, never really hands free operation as the ads sugguest.
1) NO voice tags
2) camera quality, they have good cameras in other models. 1.3mpx
3) NO vibrate. Why would you leave this out. In silent mode, you had better have the phone sitting in front of you to see it flashing.
4) Speed Speed Speed, why is it so darn slow?
5) backlit keyboard would be nice.
6) Stereo headphone jack is needed since they advetise stereo capeability.
7) heck, why not put in 802.11G while ther're at it. I had to switch my accesspoing from g only to both b and g.
8) would touch screen be that hard to add?
I really like using the phone, I just hope they do better with the next model.
Oh come on, if u wan ur phone to have a megapixel camera, why dun u buy a digital camera? handphones are phones not camera, do u hear ppl callin it "handcamera"? childish thinking... wat most important things handphones should have?
-ABLE TO MAKE A CALL
it is the best in gprs and large internal memory 80Mb and special wide screen
If you want a megapixel, get a real camera. Smartphones are not for taking printable pictures, at least at this time.
Just Now I Used This Phone" The NOKIA 9500 Communicator "Because so like This Phone!! But i think's is to bad the Camera Not 1 MegaPixel!!
It's a big phone. It's a heavy phone. It's an UGLY phone. And I wouldn't trade it for anything else. It does everything I need it to, and a whole lot more besides. Quite simply the best phone on the planet, IMHO.
What would I change if I could? A touch-screen would make websites a little easier to navigate. The web page rendering could be a whole lot faster. Voice commands and voice dialing are important - can't understand why Nokia left those out!
But for now, I'm happy.
Gosh, this phone is huge. In this era of miniaturization, why does Nokia insist on a very heavy bricky phone. To think that it doesnt offer much functionality over the much smaller SE P910. The 9300 should have been perfect with a camera. That is the phone I would buy only if it had a camera even a VGA one, which is useful for taking pictures of often forgettable contacts.
Nokia used to be king but they are in trouble. For a long time, they refused to make a flip phone, which is the trend nowadays, the result they lost a considerable market share to Samsung. They introduced so many forgettable models, which only differs in their faceplates but not features. Now they decide to offer a smart phone. Albeit a big, bricky remote like. I wouldnt be caught dead heaving this kind of gadget near my head. I would easily look like a dork.
My suggestion to Nokia is that make a smartphone with weight less than 200gms. Not much bigger than a cigarette case and not much thicker than an inch. Features are OK which Nokia has a lot of, but what good are these if you can't use it more often because of the awkwardness of size. One hour talking in this phone without a head set will cause arm muscle strain, I can assure you that.
Now what are the alternatives? Imate has a couple and they have the venerable Microsoft OS. Hard to beat for stability and functionality not to mention, familiarity and user friendliness. If you must have symbian, The SE P910 is still the king of all smartphones due to its balance of everything: design, features, prices and stability of OS. The screen of the SE is way better and brighter. I have compared them both in the store and there really is no contest. Nokias are known to have crappy, dim displays and this Nokia is no exception. Everyone is forking out 256 displays and they are still making phones with 65K display. Even ease of use is no longer an exclusive nokia trait. Other new phones are more user friendly. Nokia phones are only user friendly to repeat customers, but for new ones, they have a very illogical way of designing their interfaces.
As they say in the business community, Nokias are for "dumb" people. For tech-savvy ones, there's always the Sony Ericsson, Imate and Samsung alternative.
One thing makes this phone better then the rest for me; built in fax. Saved my butt a number of times. Highly recommend Powerdesk by Symbianware to be used as a desktop replacement. I wish there was a backlit keyboard and a vibrate function but other then that its great.
I'm sorry I do not have a 9500. I have a 9290. It is big as cell phones go. But it is VERY small compared to a laptop. It is the best PDA I have ever used. I had a palm pilot. I sold it on ebay.
it's very slow the program such as zip manager and often bollix
Great phone if you have right software like PowerDesk to help manage your task/calender etc.Opens multiple POP/IMAp email which is great too. For Arabic, go to philoc, they have a software..it may be a slow phone but for me it works great & I love the WIFI..saves me $$ on GPRS.Good Cam resolution as well.
I cannot understand why such a great phone lack of the VIBRATION mode, and always slow and do not support chiense language in view of the china and asia market, since the 9210 day,many years ago, I hope Nokia can take the feedback seriouly and improve this good phone to a better phone SOON, FOR the USERS.
