Came out recently to rectify a whole series of faults found on n79. I wonder if they had a faulty batch or the white phone is made somewhere different from gray one? It could be that the white ones are prob free and the gray ones arnt? Dont know? What colour is urs? Where was it made?
can anyone tell me how the music output sounds through the speakers in comparison to n95 8gb

This firmwar file is very new and sounds like it should render your phone to where it should have been from the very begining. Fit for purpose! Perfect!! Let me know if you have done this

The list of faults is staggering!! Nokia have just bought out a new firmware file, version 11.049 to rectify faults. But it sounds like your n79 is fine! I dont undestand? Can some phones be a nightmare to use yet others be a dream? Like urs obviously is! Can you tell me where you got urs from and where was it made? Thanks
Roger, 09 Jan 2009Awesome phone, have had alsorts including Sony Ericsson C905, which was seriously flawed! But... moreNice to hear your comments on n79. I want to get one but shops are not selling them so i cant test keypad first. I have normal size thumbs and dont do THAT much texting. Can you tell me, did you just take a chance and buy ur phone over the net, and where from? or are you lucky enough to live near a Nokia shop? They are selling for £299. Ebay £250, As you prob know!? Is ur phone made in Finland or elsewhere?

It is a massive 'bug fixing' file. Let me know asap if you have and has it sorted your phones probs?
Regarding the N79. I cannot experience 'hands on' cos I cant find anyone selling it where i live in Norwich. The nearest Nokia shop is in Reading. (A long way!) Some reviewers say the handset is "solid" "Well made" others say different!! Is it the case that the White model is made in Finland (Well made) and the seal gray is made in Hongkong? Or, are only the prototypes made in Finland? In fact, are any Nokia phones made in Finland? Lastly, has the new firmware update, version 11.049 really and truely rendered the n79 to perfection? or are there still bugs lurking? I want to buy this phone but not if its a headache to use!
