In that case, I would definitely use the Nokia software updater (downloadable from the Nokia website), which will always be right on the question whether there is an update or not. Remember to back up your data before update though.

Due a simple copy and paste from your memory card and put your data into x(create new folder) in windows. You could try a hard reset without your sim and memory card inserted(if phone is not locked though)
If you're under contract or if your problem persist send the phone back and they should give you a new one or a refund.
Hope I was of any help, or someone else can give you a better advise.

Please soft reset your phone by typing, *#7370#. Or you can do a hard reset by switching off phone and pressing, multimedia key, power key, key 3 and star key all at the same time and then the phone will come on and give you a list of countries to set your location. That way you know the hard reset has worked. I had the same problem with version 11.049 then upgraded to 20 which works like a breeze. I know there is version 30 available but i dont want to upgrade coz i have read nothing but problems in ver 30. As of now, 20 works for me and am content.

Try a hard reset by typing *#7370# or by holding * 3 green(call button) and power while phone is off. I suggest you to format and derfrag your memory card aswell. You could reinstall your current firmware if you dare.
Sad really, I sold my n79 v11 recently and never faced major issues. I just didn't liked it.
I have an N82 now, and never looked back.
Hope I was of any help.

i think the fm transmiter is the best thing in this phone . you can on the radio and set to fm 100.00 on the radio and on your fm transmiter at mobile at the mp3 option and set to the same fm and play the mp3 . nice experince
The phone back light goes of to early....its max time is 90 sec and after that its all dark.....is there any procedure so that the back light can stay for long.....i think it just because of power saver mode...can some on help
