The day i saw this phone i couldnt stop raving about it. The features depicted on the website were awesome. 4GB was the feature which caught my eye. Then the 2 MP camera / Symbian latest O.S version. Everything seemed perfect. Then came the day when my friend gathered money and courage to buy it( Well i
was the one who insisted ). I’d say it was a beauty to look at. My friend used it for a week started cribbing about the phone. I was using an SE810i. I told him dat if he didnt like it y duznt he lemme use it. He agreed coz he had always liked my SE810i. Then came the D-Day when v exchanged phones n i put my sim in the phone. Damn ! Everybody who looked at it wanted it until i quoted the price. Everything was perfect until i properly started using the phone. It was a nightmare. I was over excited n stuffed the phone with music. Well by stuffing i mean i just used about 2 GB of its memory. Music player is gud the headphones arent. The headphones are pathetic. I relaized that when i borrowed the headphones from sonyericsson. Then started the most talked about distater with the phone " The Hanging". Man it hung for a few seconds after i courageously typed a message. Well i am coming to the keypad later. It froze as soon as i sent the mesasge for a couple of seconds. The music application in the O.S is always open apart from the phone’s base application. Play a game Freeze !! Browse through the music and a call comes in FREEZE !! Middle of a game, call comes in Freeze !! Damn it just needed a situation and occasion to Freeze !! And now the most dificult aspect of the phone. Typing a message. The keys are so horribly small dat its a nightmare to even think of typing a message. Well i used to be a message spammer. My friends are still thanking N91 which just changed me. Well used it for a few days n returned it bak to my friend. The Climax of the story, I went with my friend n we happily sold the phone together for a HUGE loss. But atleast i hav peace of mind now. By the way he is using a IMATE JAMiN now.
So guys please think twice err thrice .. ummm ... well buy it if u hate messaging n u wanna carry ur music around. I’d rather buy an iPod 30 Gb Video.
Overall a BAD BUY !!
I have N91 but have not really ventured into it. The 1st set i got was thrash as the HDD was corrupted. The nokia personnel was kind enough to provide me another set. The phone is Great! I like the Weight and its Make! I have been reading about "OUT OF MEMORY" and how we can solve it is by clearing "POWER CYCLE THE DEVICE, CLEAN UP RAM", how do i do that? Thanks
i bought a new nokia n91 its funtioning well and good.tell where to get windows os word,powerpoint and excel software to enable in the noiia n91 symbian os
Is it possible for this N91 to upgrade to a a2dp profile ? like the n91 8giga version? cheers
I used to own a Nokia N91 with the old firmware...
i used to put my mp3`s on it using mass storage mode...
they were also put on with a bitrate of 320kbps, i never went lower than that, i like top quality!
but even after having 4 of these damm phones, they all started to play each track and then suddenly pause sometimes, i would then have to manually restart it again with the play button.. does anyone know why this kept happening?
i now have the N80 and its rubbish for listening to music..
very low output volume, poor quality with headphones.. no way in the same league as the N91 for playing music on..
02 Online network wouldnt give me a NEW N91 because apparently they had discontinued it due to problems... then again, i went through 4 of them!
Brilliant phone. HAd it for a few days now. The hdd also has sensors like the acceleration sensor so if u drop it from higher than 1m, it switches the hdd off to prevent some degree of damamge. So far only one hitch but that was cos i didnt disconnect the phone properly from the pc. A simple restart sorted that out. Scores a comfortable 9/10. My only gripe is the location of the menu button. I find it cumbersome using one hand to operate the button as i have a lateent fear of droppping it!
I m proud to have N91 it is very uncommon phone
, its sound makes me wild when i listen to my heart touching trance songs. it has real sound effects on.
Regarding hanging up etc - Please see my message entitled User Advice below.
(Can also search for User Advice in search bar below)
N91 is a good phone but it gets restarted at times and also has Hard disk problems which i faced
N91-8Gb spec sheet from Nokia.com
(Google and Yahoo is amazing )
BT stereo etc. Also I heard rumors it will also support plug-n-play UPNP. Hey if my holiday bonus comes through I may buy one :)
To the person with the SCR issue (which ia actually n audio issue)
1) I did a yahoo on "Nokia USA N91" and here it is http://www.nokiausa.com/phones/N91/0,7747,,00.html
So the receptionist was obviosuly wrong.
As for a sound flicker --never heard of it however I did read that the N91 has a 10 or 12 Mbyte buffer in memory to avoid skipping That usually holds 2 songs (ave song according to APPLE is 4.5 Mbytes which is 192 Kbps samplng, high quality MP3). So the song playing and the next song in the cue are in RAM so you are never playing off the HDD - IPOD does the same thing) I would guess that if she had very high sampled MP3s that were larger than the buffer it may skip? one a really bumpy road...just a Guess. I assume she is listening using the headset? Could be a headset connection issue.
Here is what I was able to find out
a) 8GB storage
b) Black color
c) Bluetooth Stereo (AD2P is BT stereo)
The HDD "reliability" should start off where N91 SW 2.00 is and be better (later SW). For people complaining about the HDD - see my advice and update the sw. Most people from what I can tell have not had a problem In the end the HDDs have had no problem its been the sw (3rd party apps are the worst) that screw up their databases and cant see the HDD etc (they do the ame for MMCs). The 2.00SW has made it tougher for these apps to "not see" or screw up the N91 (ie grab the HDD by leaving some files open) so we see "HDD unavailabe".
See the N91 USer Advice and update :)
Wonder if the NEW N91 8gb Phone will be more reliable than the existing N91?
will it be a better quality hard drive that actually lasts more than a few months?
or will it become corrupted etc etc
any info on this?
To all you N91 users out there, you're not gonna like this.
Nokia has launched a full black version of the N91 with a 8gb hard disk!
Check out the following link:
As for the ones, who've been wanting to buy one....WOW, is all I can say!
the n91 music edition is on its way with 8gb storage just to keep up with samsung but both still not released
Thanks for the reply, but actually it is not a screen issue, but a sound issue.
Sorry about that,... (its not actually my phone, but someone I know)
Acco to the 3rd person, the sound "flickers" when the phone is being used on the highway specially when there is a bump of something.
Also, can you provide the contact info for nokia n91 warranty issues?
I have called nokia.com, but, like I said the receptionist would not help since the n91 is not U.S. market phone, they said I have to call Europe and it's not a toll free # either.
Weird. Sound slike the sw got screwed up Look at User Advice may need to try the hard reset section.
To jay2x - read my User advice about Out of memory or Memory full. Its the RAM not the HDD or the N91 but the APPs. You may have alot of APPs hogging RAm memory even after they are closed. Power cycling is what clears up the RAM.
my n91 just went mad.just went to back it up and....no menu,no hard drive.not even the butons worked.please help,lost my video,s of my boy takin his first steps.
