to andy burgin,,we all have our favorite sites and get nuggets of information from them that we can share on the forum so if you can keep us up to date on any updates thats a big help..It does seem some rumours do end up being true and if their will be update to a music edition of the n95 then hooray..This is still the best fone ive had in the n series and millions of times better than the s/e p990i which sounds childish but thats how the p990i behaves !
I just wondering people i have the nokia n95 orange varient, and one thing i noticed is that my friends nokian95 generic version has moving icon's on his menu, they seem to jump up at you!!!
Dose anyone else have these funky icons??? mine are just still
Lets hope there will be some Black Fascia available to buy now from Nokia an some new firewall to upgrade to make the N95 like the Music Edition one supposed to be released soon by Nokia,they did this to the N73 an the N73 in Black was brilliant,theres supposed to a new firewall available now i have read on some webpages but i have tried but nothing yet so i will keep checking
people who say that this phone gives lots of problems they lie actually they just hear from somewhere all r rumers and rumers r not always correct right my friend used this phone trust its a very gud phone
I find the browser really really slow especially when using GPRS but even with 3G it still takes a lot longer to load a page than my other phones.Ha ha ha ha aha
yeah but symbian is the most basic of any operating system.RAM management of the os is woeful!I'm amazed people actually praise symbian and in the same breath mock windows mobile,xp,vista etc lol.Obviously developers aren't to keen on Nokia's chosen os as seen with the lack of quality 3rd party applications-still no core player!
I just downloaded maps for UK. The software didn't say whether it was loading it to my phone or to my hardrive. There's no browse to see & or select !
I then go to maps to try & run the sat nav but instead of running the GPS software it just tries to connnect to my WLAN !
All the owners manual talks about is maps in relation to sat nav.
So I go to maps on my phone & let it connect to my WLAN. Then I put in a location for it to calc the route. I go to look at route & it says 'no GPS position' so I go outside to get a GPS signal & it then says 'disconnected', presumably disconnected from my WLAN !
So how the heck can you get this to work ?
Then I look in 'applications' to see if the GPS/sat nav software application is there to select to try & run, but it's not there !!!!!!!!
WTF do Nokia make things so hard ?
They've made GPS a big selling point of the N956 but it seems they don't care of anyone can actually get it to run !
Any suggestions appreciated.
Can somebody manage to do skype calls on this phone( as E65 can do)? Please explain
The symbian aspect is essential. From multitasking to powerful file management within root directories to program installation and execution, symbian enables all of this. If you ever used a phone as a real tool (you know, for work?), you would understand how important it is.
When using WIFI or internet. HOw do type?..is there a letter recognition in the touch screen ??
I'm just wondering about the GPS, has anyone has experience about that? How to plan a route? how GPS work? When the phone outside it must picks up Satellite signal right? Thanks for any help. MInh
Can someone tell me if there is a way to make the phone end a call if I slide the phone down at the end of a call?
PS if you do update dont upgrade your maps app, the new one dosent do gps tracking and it's not on this firmware update as i think it's unofficial. please updat your map loader as this will install maps very quickly. the official firmware update will be the bomb, SE & iphone pfft this update puts the jewell back in the crown
I changed my code to euro1 using nss and upgraded firmware with nokia nsu and my n95 is like lightning and and and gps connects in 1 second on route 66 & nokia maps. I have a 4gb sandisk sdhc and i installed all my apps to card because it seems to mash up the phone if you store apps to phone. It's AMAZING, Im so happy LOL
If this new firmware can correct a few things that people are wanting and battery goes up a touch then this fone is perfect.Have had it good few weeks now and everything has worked spot on and using a 4 x aaa battery charger for support thruout the day..I think video is perfect for wat i need and wat i do is pop in a blank micro sd card (1gb )to take shots and video and on the 4gb have mp3s,,videos etc,,you definetly need the seperate card if your using full power video as mine on average sucks up 25mb per min of video recording which is normal and playback thru tele is unmatched to wat anything ive used before i.e. my d900 had cif at 15fps and that fiiled a normal def tele full screen but this (n95) improves vastly on that with smoother action and less graininess,,,i am using the 3 mp setting on cam thats good for wat i want and get enuf sound out the mp3 player with the dance music i listen too...im using mini opera now because nokias own mini-map browser is slow and that arrow curser sometimes does not point at links properly leaving you to go round and round till you pick up the link..The screen is really big wen you first get it but after a while wen i went back to my n80 you really,really appreciate the n95 screen size..Obviously their is loads more to explore and do but overall after having most smartfones this is the best in terms of stability & opertion..I cant get used to windows smarfones and each one ive had cant play many video formats and those it does stall after 30 seconds and refuse to play this n95 plays lots and you can also get divx down load to get more and if youre in 3g coverage if you go to video centre on n95 and d/load you tube vids it plays them,,and its blogs everything and timelines it,,and its got direct links to my space the list goes on so n95 is superb device,,try it,,you can always swap it under 14 refund/exchange policy at most reputable stores ,,bye.
i've crossed over from the titan.I must say the n95 is easier to use but has different qualities.If you need to use buisness applications then this phone is very limited.Basic functions such as copy and paste are a nightmare.
