it is a good phone but hangs sometimes and low speed in Galery and my phones radio is weak
i've used this n79 for almost a year...i think this is the best phone in it's class...almost everything i got on this phone... :) i never facing any major problems with this phone...i love my NOKIA N79.. (^^,)
Maureen 77, 28 Nov 2010is there any way that i can switch off the camera sound??..i've been using this phone for the ... morego to tones setting and switch off the warning tone.
Settings-general-person.-tones-warning tone-off. Thats all . This is d best phone of nokia.
[deleted post]i just bought n79 a month ago...
i believe n82 is still the best camera phone ever produced by nokia
i used e51 before...
phone response of n79 is slower than my e51...
n79 camera is decent when compared with other nokia devices...(don't compare with sony or samsung they'll be better)only n82,n86,n95,6700,6220c will be better than n79...there r better camera phones than n79...but its acceptable.
i'm not that satisfied with design...keypad is not the best...D-pad is hard(however there is navi wheel)
the one annoying aspect i found is its phone memory..its only 50MB
so when u browse,u've to clear ur cache everytime...or else u'll find "memory full close some applns"
overall i find n79 to be good...
hi...i don't know how to use sms timer app...i read the help,it said its like normal sms,in normal messaging type the text then select options,it will list the scheduling options...but when i did so i didn't see any scheduling options...help
is there any way that i can switch off the camera sound??..i've been using this phone for the last 6 months,everything is just fine,but i could not find this option only.i see u can change the camera sound,there r 4 types of sound in it,but no "switching off" option.. anybody,an user of N79, who can help me??
[deleted post]N79 had FM transmitter, good key pad n good battery life. but have not xenon flash lamp (meaning dual led lamp only).
N82 had dual processor, xenon flash lamp. But have not FM transmitter, have bad battery life n bad keypad to usage.
I think N79 is the TOP DOG of PAST. But still ok to usage now.
If n85 n n86 is not a slide phone model. May be i will choose them. Actually every slide model are easy broken or damage for heavy duty.
FM transmitter not working after updating my fom with latest firmware
what to do?????????????
This phone is an absolute bag of rubbish and I will NEVER BUY ANYTHING from NOKIA again!!
The phone has all sorts of software issues including rebooting when a call is received, changing themes, random restarts, even lost ALL my text messages one morning for no reason at all?? And this is with the latest firmware...The user interface is slow and the actual user-experience is totally frustrating in both hardware AND software terms...I've had three replacements and they've all been the same, utter rubbish and wait until you check out NOKIA OVI Suite. Expect to hit CTRL ALT DEL quite often... absolutely rubbish from NOKIA...
If you want a phone that will completely annoy you, lose all your data, cost money, and is what feels like an untested product then get one. Its a swiss army knife that will irritate you every single day that you own it.

Imran, 17 Nov 2010Hello guys!Please help me decdie which phone should I buy? Nokia N79 or 6700 or X6 16 Gb . I wuld suggest u n79 than x6 dude..
Piku, 30 Oct 2010Don’t buy this phone in this price; I am using this about 8months, more than 100 times it hang... moreYou need to hard reset it. Google it. If not, Try to connect in bluetooth mode, backup ur data and contacts etc, and via NSU (Nokia software updater, reinstall its firmware.
I have same problem, but only specific to the shortcut silver key, where it hanged alot n becomes extremely slow. I used Phoenix for flashing, if u know some person who knew it, ur work will be easy.

n79 is amzing, the memory, the speed, 5migapixel like iphone but not touch screen, but accident i droped to the flor then after i use usb and remove memory it takes 5 min to take it nornal then after that its ok, but i dropped the phone acidentaly the floor so thats hapeen but the n79 is good nice, the pdf, word, fit to my mood, powerpoint, mpeg4, music, mp3, i think if n79 is touch screen its like iphone4, and its too cheaper than any phone there, look at the inside of the phone the features and u will know wat i mean, tnx Godbless:-)
