I just upgraded the firmware to 12.043 via NSU and the performace is changed mindblowingly!! (at last I have the phone I expected to have in the forst place!)
PS> updating OTA (over the air) has not improved some of my folks' performance as a complete update has done mine.
me!!!!!!!!!!, 21 Dec 2008Why are other N96 made in China? What is the other diff besides that N96 made in China doesnt ... moreThere are no specsheet differences between the Chinese made models and others (i.e. Chinese made ones have all the features as others). However; I'd say the Chinese made models share some quality issues common with the Finnish ones (light leak from aound the screen and poorly sealed display, cheap plastic on keypad, etc.)
Why are other N96 made in China? What is the other diff besides that N96 made in China doesnt have gps and wifi? Is is still the same quality?
I just bought the Nokia n96 and I previously owned the N95. Can anyone tell me whether I need to overwrite the previous PC Suite that I installed that came with N95. If I install the cd of N96 will I lose the backups I already had?

hey guys i have been using this cell for more than 20days now, i have no problems with it at all, the battery last for 36hrs with moderate to heavy use which is totally fine for me. n the quality of dhtv is also superb. the sound is superb too, amazing vedio quality the only thing dats not working is the nav wheel, any1 can tell me how it works. i have upgraded to the new firware der is not much difference. n the phone doesnt lags i find it decently fast.
2 all u people who updated to 12.043 firmware is there a major difference 2 your phones that makes the n96 a gr8 phone? does n96 lag or have any more problems?is it worth buying it? please reply
Yay i finaly got the Device yestaday!!!!! and wow....!!!!
the only 2 things i dnt like its the dead pixel in midle of the screen...and the bad bettery life!!!!!!! the rest is awsome the sound quality is out of this world!!!!!! im loving the Transformers movie that came with the N96 coz its my favourate movie of all time!!!!!!
As 4 the mobile tV it works all i need is a USIM-card.
Oh how do i update the firmware without loosing any of my data like licenses and games
with the latest software the n96 works perfectly
I just updated my n96 from the last firmware v11.018 to v12.043. what happened?? my n96 works really great. its much faster now than before. but im still trying to test whats the difference from the previous version. i just noticed that there was a big change in the speed when you switched it on and when opening applications, photos, and music. also the battery life stay's longer. i charge my phone almost every night. but now, its been 2days and i havent charge it yet. so for those people using n96, update your phone firmware and see the difference. goodluck guys..

tz for coming out more and more HP with :
-slower cpu so that the HP nonstop acting hang, lag, slow
-lower batterylife so that battery out in 1-3 hours.
-good "outlook" design so that alot ppl will try to buy the outlook and days later gain the hang,lag,slow, die battery...
example hp to promote to all the world:
E66, N96, and pls come out moreeeeeee... plsssss!
thus, we will wish u the bestknown in the world!!
