Hi can enyone help me i have an issue with my messeges. A lot of times when i send something it would say "Messege Editor! Already in use!" what the hell is that!! Its pissing me off and i feel like throwing the phone against the wall. Do you guys experience the same thing and if so how did u fix it? Please help...as this issue is getting very annoying.
This is a very good phone overall.
Build quality is good, it's stable, has good camera(useless at night though), very good battery life.
My only gripe with the phone is that music player freezes while skipping songs. Unplugging the headphone usually brings it back to normal, weird.
"Transitions" slows the phone down, so I recommend disabling theme animations.
All in all, it's a solid and nice looking candybar phone.
Highly recommend it.
be prepared this phone is slow. cant keep up with your fingers so if you're one whos impatient i wouldnt recommend it.
the music player freezes as you fast forward / skipping songs. (i read some reviews saying it freezes the phone itself and they had to literally remove the battery to get it working again, mine's not as bad, only crashed the music player but it still runs at the background, there's no way to stop or exit, if you're reading this and know how to close it please let me know cheers.)
apart from these two problems if you are ok with, its a good phone afterall. although keypads' a lil stiff (cant type at full speed!). but i love the fact that it has 3interchangeable covers. tried taking afew shots with the 5MP and the pictures are really refined, great quality.
I just need your help. I want to but N79 and planning to sell N73 Music Edition. Which phone would you recommend. If you have any suggestion then please email me on : firstname.lastname@example.org. Or else i can try to visit this webpage.
I would be happy if you tell me the right thk.
Waiting for your replies....
My impressions of the phone after a 3+ months of usage:
Reception-Call quality; very good, no droped calls, signal issues etc.
Build quality: overall sturdy, no creaks or signs of peeling off keys etc.
Keypad: slightly flat keys but good, upper buttons are somewhat cramped(especially menu & delete keys. Took me one week to get used to it.
OS-UI Responsivness: The phone is overall very stable and responsive."Transitions" slows down the phone considerable, turn off themes animations and voila!
Music player-sound quality: sound through earphones is quite good but volume could be higher(its good for me), stereo speakers lacks bass and volume is good/average(got spoiled by my brothers ageing N73!)
Connectivity: all works, gps is good, wifi works like a charm, no complains etc.
Camera: good, can take quite good pics with favorable conditions but has some noise issues.Night shoots are mostly useless. Video recording is good aswell.
Battery: very good, with moderate usage can last 3 days. It can stand heavy usage for 1 to 1.1/2 days(this is on 3g only)
Conclusion: This is a true all arounder phone.
If photography is your main concern, then look somewhere else, this is only a good "cameraphone"
There's no perfect phone in my opinion, and this is a great candy bar-non touch mobile phone.
Hope this helps an sorry for my english.
I got my N79 on Friday, and all I can so is that this is the best phone ever! it's awesome and does everything, and does it all very well!
It looks amazing.
I love the keypad, easy to press and no clicking sounds, the navi wheel works well although the dpad itself is a bit stiff.
My last phone was a 6220 classic and was great apart from the case which creaked horribly and buttons were flimsy.
I know it's not the newest phone out there but it looks stunning and works perfectly.
Really happy and couldn't recommend it enough :)
Really i'm baffled @ some of the comments i see here about the nokia n79.pls for those that just bought the phone,use it 4 a little while longer 2 relish it first.i bought mine in january 2009 & it hasnt failed me til date.comparin it wit n82 its definitely smaller & better.camera is very kool & sharp especialy wen taken outside(compared it wit some digicams of 7.2 mp & it was beta)though pics are yellow @ times @ nite(just off flash if dia is extanal lite source,it helps).i also compared some of its features wit dat of n96.apart from n96 screen size & large memory,n79 has a lot more.beta battery life dan n96,has a navi wheel & fm transmitter(not in n96),geotags its piktures,sensitiv & kool self flip screen,comes wit 2 oda covers,& has some other funktions seen on the E series,also u can watch internet tv & more.yeah button is kinda funny but aside that, wat more do u want in a relatively cheap fone?i stand to be corrected though.
I bought it for my wife. She absolutely loved it except for she says that it more of E series(which i use) and it is slow like some else has also mentioned but over all if little slow speed is not a big issue i would recommend it . i too secretly want to take it back from my wife :)
keypads are even hard to press!!!! very very dissapointed, fm transmitter is cool but thats it, i shoulnt have changed from my n82
Very very very disappointed with this phone!!!! i sold my n82 to nuy this phone and ive been using it for 4 days now and i hate it!!! very slow, very very poor camera, wrong move!!!! it has some cool features but over all, hate it!!!!

Anonymous, 26 Jul 2009if nokia n 79 is a gud phone?????? i want to buy.. please my friends suggest...I just bought it and trust me its a good phone! The phone feels very well built and it looks absolutely amazing. I use it as my primary music device as I have no mp3 player and I think its sound quality should be good enough for most people. The camera feels the same as my old N78 in terms of picture quality. The only downside is the keypad, which needs some getting used to..this is the best candybar phone out there
