i bought this phone 2day as an upgrade on my nokia n95 8gb
the n96 is a good phone...i like the 16gb memory and the feel on it in my hand is just right
but for some reason it is slower then my n95
ans i still prefer my n95 as i find it easier to use and more appealing 2
n96 is still a good phone tho.
i bought the n96 last 2 week.. it is excellent..good performance...so dun trust the comment say that hw bad is it...that is cheating....
smiffy48, 27 Mar 2009I owned a Nokia N96 for 3 months, this was the most unreliable Nokia phone I have ever owned. ... moreWere you on contract? If so how did you get out of it or change your handset? I have a N96 its crap never works i pay £55.00 a month for things i can't even use.
Honestly i have to say i've never had so many problems with one handset before. It's slow, constantly crashes, doesn't allow me to make phone calls when i need to, doesn't allow me to use my unlimited internet i pay for, it changes my ring tone for me ??? It's awful. Very disappointed.
Can anyone help me...
I have downloaded some animated themes for my N96 but its showing an still image in those themes i mean its not flashing or animating... what'd be the problem? Pls help i'll be grateful.
Someone said that the software version was 12.3.456 however the software updater tells me mine is 11.018 and also that this 11.018 is the latest version!
The cell keeps self resetting itself besides hangs up too!
again, all of you who own a N96..why did you buy this when it is more expensive than an innov8, which has more features?
Thabo, 26 Mar 2009Hi guys, please help me with the memory of this phone?It keeps on saying that memory is low an... moreHi u are probably using the phone memory instead of the mas memory. To change that, go into messaging, then options, scroll down to settings, then scroll down to other, and scroll down to memory in use and change that to mass memory.
I do believe however that once you finish your file transfers u might need to change back to phone memory as that's where the phone performs better...I stand corrected though. But that's where i believe your problem is

I owned a Nokia N96 for 3 months, this was the most unreliable Nokia phone I have ever owned. Rather than being an all-singing-all-dancing SMARTphone it simply did not work effectively i.e. constantly crashing, poor battery life, abyssmal reception and very slow.
Come on Nokia, at least get the basics right!
I have since changed to a Nokia E51 which is fantastic.
