Hey guys, I got rid of this because it was too much trouble. It deleted 70 pictures and it pissed me off. I took it for an exchange but they kept it for 2 days and said that there was nothing wrong with it. They said it was me!! That I didn't put the pictured on the external memory! So f* them. I got a blackberry and am fully satisfied. So far. I miss the fm transmitter and obviously the cam (5 mpx vs 2 mpx) but I'll let it pass as long as it keeps me happy. Hope no one else has problems with theirs. If so, then hopefully you'll get a better customer service. Bye, N85 forum.

But i doubt if the problem would be fixed, seems like its a bug in the firmware. Any body has any thoughts on the same.

After starting the fm transmitter you have to tune your nearest fm reciever to the frequency at which you tune the transmitter and then play the music via the music player it gets played on the device which you tune the fm

Suhanoo, 05 Nov 2009Dear all, I was reading the comments by you. I own one of the N85 since March 2009. There wer... moreHi Suhanoo! I have a question, see, my N85 has been with me for like 2 weeks and 3 days and on the 3rd day I noticed my ringtone (mp3) and 5 mp3 songs had been erased from my memory card. So I made a back up of my pictures through mass storage and reformatted the card. I thought it was because of a theme I had installed. So put everything but my themes. Then, 4 days later(begining of week 2)more songs were gone (from 21 to 17) and then I pressed refresh gallery and then only 12 songs were left. So Nokia Care told me to reformat my card and reinstall the firmware. Which I had done previously so I did it again, they answered 3 days after that which was day 3 of my second week with it. So then I just added my pics and only 1 song to use as a ringtone and to play through the media player. So far that one song hasn't been erased nor have my pictures. Should it be safe to assume that all is well or should I just send it back and see if they will give me a new card? Hope you can answer me through here :)
I was reading the comments by you. I own one of the N85 since March 2009. There were ups and downs with my phone. I would like to share them with you.
1. Within the second month, my N85 was cracked in between the "menu" & "c" keys.
2. It never "froze", as some of you commented. N-E-V-E-R.
3. Comparing to N95 is a bull shxt. N85 was "the king" (as they put it) in that era. But now, N85 has better options than that.
4. The camera is NOT the best among the 5 MPs, but is good enough for personal use (not professional).
5. After you upgrade your firmware, some of the problems are gone:
a. Phone becomes faster
b. Can recognise up to 16GB memory card
c. Camera performance became better (even the flash is now better)
d. N-gage games were not deleted
e. Web browsing is faster & Wi-Fi is also faster (searching the Wi-Fi)
f. I also updated to the latest version (30.101). Some claimed that it will make the phone recognise till 32GB card. I couldn't try because I couldn't find a 32GB card in my area.
g. The gallery is faster (specially the zooming)
h. Video recording is also better (better graphics)
i. After the update, you will be able to set your phone's lock code up to 32 digit (yes, it is true) & not only that, it can be alpha-numeric (alphabet, number mixed). You don't have to set boring old 5 digit numeric phone code. Please note, the password is case sensative.
j. I don't have the youtube viewing problem (flash works fine).
Some of the things you should know (some of you):
N85 is a smart phone, not all SE are. I am not telling that SE is bad. It is only the matter of preference. I like Nokia because of the Symbian OS. It gives me 30 days call log (including sms, mms, gprs use etc), extra ordinary phone book, detailed calender, syncronise with PC option etc.
If you want to buy a SE, that is good. But you will NOT get a 30 days log, extra ordinary phone book. The sound quality in SE is better than Nokia, I agree. But SE is a company which has various business (SE camera, SE walkman etc) which they can merge into their phone. I like the camera & music in a SE, but don't like the OS. If you buy a low-end phone of SE & a high-end phone of SE, the OS is all the same (how's that).
The FM Transmitter is a good tool, specially when you are driving a car with your friends/family. You just put the music on the go & everyone can hear it through your car radio.
N85 doesn't have many problems as other Nokia phones. On that area, SE is better as it NEVER gets freeze (the reason is simple, the OS of SE is java).
Anyway, my comment is turning into a review, which I don't want. So please feel free to knock me up if you have any queries: firstname.lastname@example.org
i had a nokia n85 for the last almost 5 months . The only drawback is the quality of the front screen, which is really very sensitive to everything. It is easily scratched and finger smudges are very common. Other that this it is really a must have phone. Quality of the screen is unbelievable except viewing it on bright sunlight (Outdoor).
tim, 03 Nov 2009Can someone help when someone rings what do i have 2 do to have their name displayed on my screenTim: it should come up automatically if you have them added to your contacts (if not, it should come up as a mobile number). if all numbers show as private number calling then you have to call your phone provider and get them to turn on caller id for you.

Not my pictures though. Nokia told me to reformat the card and reinstall the phones SW. I was going to send it in for repairs but so far its been 3 days and my song hasn't been erased. I only put one to be sure that it's missing when and if it deletes. If that one song disappeares then I'll send it back. Until then, everything is great.
