Not sure about the N91-5 confusion, in India people seem to have been informed but maybe its different where you are. If it makes you feel any better..I opted out of my 3G package three months ago because for me edge/gprs is plenty fast. WLAN - its cool but after you have surfed for a while...its more of a novelty to show your friends. Let me knwo some details and we can see if we can help you update to 2.10.
From what I hear the N91 5 was clearly stated as GSM only and No WLAN in India but not sure about the Phillipines. The issue syou describe are related to the old sw. You say you cannot upgrade too 2.10 - why? You can do it at home using NSU or take it to a care centre.
do u all facing a minor distraction when playing the song in pop equalizer.note that the distraction or noise only can be hear at the collus of thesong and requier extreme attension.can u guy try ur n91 bcause i have no friend using the phone and i can't compare it.and try the song at 192kbps it will be more obvious.thanks a lot
To Mangesh - If you are happy 2.00 then stay with it but simply install the sms accelerator. Also about Audio manager - it is not recommended

Aaron - The N91-5 was clearly stated at GSM only in India at least (see other posts). Im not sure in the Phillipines. The issues you describe are clearly related to the old 1.xx sw - you say you cannot upgrade the sw - why? You can do it over the internet or bring it to a sevice shop

oh my God!!! N91 is too big enough!!! and i wonder how can i video it has only one camera and "take note" it has no flash!! but 1 thing is gr8 in N91 aside to its 4GB and 8GB is a long life span in playing music even with the audio out in any speaker.
I recently used mp3 format with bitrate 128 kbps,i never used NOKIA AUDIO MANAGER for downloading the songs in my phone.is it aac format with bitrate 160 kbps is better than mp3 format?.I m trying to convert the format of the songs via nokia audio manager.but its not working.plz tell me how load the songs by changing the format via audio manager?.which audio format you are using as well?. thanks
Couple of things I don't like about my N91-5:
1.It neither has 3G nor Wi-Fi.
2.It freezes at least 5x a day since I've bought it.
3.Can't upgrade to the latest SW.
Well,it's such a big dismay and disappointment in my part to find out that the N91 has no 3G or Wi-Fi.Nokia didn't clarify in their website that they're to come up with 2 versions of N91 phone, one that has 3G and one that doesn't have, so I could've looked for and bought the one that has 3G. In the Philippines, all cellular network operators are competing with each other when it comes to 3G promotions. So, I won't be able to make faster downloads since my N91 is not 3G capable.. Nokia should've made clear in the nokia.com/nseries that there's 2 versions of this phone, N91-1 and N91-5. I've found out late already. When it comes to music, I think the Sony Ericsson Walkman phones are better. About the performance,,it's not that slow but it freezes too often. One time, my song files have gone out of the Music player and the icons of the installed have gone out also showing a message that the disk drive is corrupted (I installed HandySafe S60v3 OS9.1 and it wouldn't install.) I thought my HDD was corrupted, but my phone restarts itself and after that everything seemed all fine, the songs are back in the Music player and the icons appeared as they used to. My phone freezes everytime I use each of the 2 web browsers. Poor and slow connection since there's no Wi-Fi and 3G. Not a very good music player, could have been better in performance, not 100 percent satisaction guaranteed. I hope Nokia would get to read this message.. Thanks.

To bill,thanks for yar response.
But sorry dude I always do the Full Format,Not The Quick format
Congrats and welcome to the club. First off what sw do you have (type in *#0000#). If its 2.00.052 then you do not need to rush off and upgrade right away just install the sms accelerator and wait and see. Many people have not upgraded because they are happy with their device (it depends on how you use the device whether you will encounter
problems with older sw). If you software is of the 1.x vintage then i would suggest an upgrade.
Here are some good tips which will point you to the info
I just got my N91 and love it. But seems like I will upgrade the firmware to 2.x What should I do? I dont have any data on it. I just got it out right from the box. Shall I just go to format it or I need to do some preparation before the firmware upgrad? Thanks guys
I would say there is nothing wrong with the device so formatting HDs etc is not going to solve it. For some reason the Updater is not recognizing your device as the UK phone and saying that 2.10 is not there for you.
What exactly does you sticker say?
To korngear: Do full format of the drive - NOT quick format. This may fix your 400MB limitation.
Thank you so much, I was able to upgrade my N91 to 2.10.013. I got my fone in the philippines & nokia.asia.com finally has the over the air software upgrade on their site. it was a success & my N91 is workin' better than ever. I did notice that if you have your fone on the "general" profile the date is displayed under the service provider name . I wud advise everyone to urgrade to 2.10.
