I have been using the device since about 2.5 months. It met my expectations on almost all fronts. I would like to share the following 2 points
1) Firmware - Smart Search was not working. Nokia care center told me not available in the present firmware. Nokia PC suite did not return any upgraded firmware available. My firmware version is 100.07.76
2) Performance - The phone would freeze once about 2-3 days. Message SCAN on the memory card did not work and had to be cancelled. The memory in USE for messages could not be set to the memory card. Finally, the phone crashed and it erased all my messages. I decided to do a memory format. Most of the applications were erased including Sports Tracker, Games, IM, Yahoo GO, etc. But since then the above reported problems were ALL gone! No more phone freezes, I am able to get a memory SCAN output and the message memory in use is the memory card.
Appreciate useful experiences related to mine above by anyone.
