I got my n86 on 26th June 2010.
The first feel of holding is awesome , its heavy but feels solid I personally like heavy cell phone.
First thing I did was to update its firmware it had V21 and now its has V30.009 ( I am in P.akistan )
it update smoothly via NSU ( nokia software updater ) but my N-gage was removed for which I installed N-gage .
I got My cert and Key file from internet also and I installed many softwares on it.
It has adobe acrobat ( V 1.5 ) and Quickoffice ( which doesn't let you edit files ) Well I Installed Adobe acrobat 2.5 and quickoffice 6 which allows editing .
Sound is clear and awesome , W-lan and bluetooth connectivity works flawlessly as well as Fm radio and its Radio transmitter.
Battery lasts 1 and half day for me I am heavy user ( Internet , games, Music .
Side Metal is fingerprint magnet.
I haven't faced any probs in software or anything.
Camera works excellent for pics and I am satisfied with it

how to downgrade to v20
pls this version sucks :-(
bad picture quality..lot and lot of errors :-(
Yes n0kia should release an update to fix and adjust the error we prefer the pic quality of v20 over this v30.
i think there is general problem with firmware ver 30.
as all these problem occurs after ver 30 released.
the old ver 20 is the most stable for now.
bad, bad, misery, filth, disaster and all the words that end in useless. do not recommend it, never.

Garmin also packed up after a week of usage (when gsm was not working anymore). At least I was able to take pictures and videos while on vacation (pretty good anyway) and use nokia maps travelling for 1600 km overseas. It was good not to carry around my digital camera, video camera and navigator.

Have used it for 6 months and it packed up last week, while I was on vacation, travelling on my car outside my country, using roaming and gps. All functions of the phone work except for gsm module and gps. It doesn't see any network. I disconnected the battery for a few hours and did several hard resets. Managed to start gps, but it works intermittently, sometimes hanging or not finding gps signal for hours. Now it's an expensive, poor navigator with player and camera.
Anybody had this situation?
m using ur m86 mobile.good respone in storage bt some times hanging problem suffered. thnks
A Solid n Smart phone...much more better design n look den its previous model n85..those prefer slide phone and want something all function in,this is the one not to be missed. battery life ok,external speakers not bad,design good only the battery cover part if uses a stainless back cover will be perfect..imo

Battery will drain too fast while using gps or wifi. As both are major power consumer. Also if you can manage go for power saving mode, with black theme. It will reduce power consumption by ~2 times. In my case white theme uses ~0.7 watt power while black with power saving mode consumes just 0.1-0.2 watt power.
If you listen to music, use your headphones instead of loudspeaker. It will consume ~4 times less power even at full volume.
Also check for unnecessary applications running in background using some task manager like Jbaktaskman.
My battery easily gives backup of 2 days with black theme, power saving mode enabled, very less or no wifi/gps use, some music over headphones and with normal calling.
