I think the differance between the Amazon phone problems and the Nokia version lack there of was purely a coicidence. There is no perfect phone out there. I think you have 30 days to return the phone at Amazon??? After 7 days at Nokia you can only exchange it. I miss the qwerty pad. but I love the video quality and the nice camera. The camera seems to work quicker than the N95 8 gig. I the iphone had a built in video camera I may have went that direction. However the iphone forces you into paying for the monthly 3g fees. I use the N96 with the wifi now and may or may not get the internet later. Freedom of choice.

I purchased the n96 from Amazon. I was good. But I noticed the battery was short lived; even with wifi etc off. The reason I sent it back was the voice command would shut of the phone and restart by itself when I used the voice command with certain names. It would do it consistantly with certain names. I called Nokia to see if there was a firmware update and they suggested that I get a phone from them since I wanted one "Made in Finland". So I returned the one to Amazon because I only owned it for 4 days and it already had software issues. The phone from Nokia also stated, "Made in China". He bullshit me. However the Voice Command problem was gone. I have gotten this N96 to lockup a few times. Sometimes I'm finding that it is still trying to do something that takes time and if I just wait to give it another command it seems to do it less. Of course the jury is still out on that. By the way to verify if the phone is indeed a Nokia authorized phone, just look at the imei # under the battery and call Nokia. Nokia will verify the number for you. Today was my last day to return the phone for a full refund to Nokia. I decided to keep it. The main reason is having the good quality video in it. While it is not as good as a regular video camera it is by far better than the majority of phones out there. And you can record a sizeable video also. My friends N95 8Gig did not playback on analog or HD tvs very well, but plays back excellent on the phones screen itself. THE BATTERY

rich, 02 Dec 2008why did I make the biggest mistake and get this phone??!!!?? keeps freezing and battery is sho... moreDude take your nokia n96 to a nokia care centre tell them what is happening and Im sure they will fix it.
I took my nokia n96 to a nokia care centre and they fixed the proplem though I did'nt have that sourt of problem with mine, are you sure you aint running to many applications to find out if you are press the menue key for about a second and if the are applications running you should exit them by pressing the c key,
if it is a branded nokia n96 say from vodafone take it to a nokia care centre to take it off I got mine off and have no more trouble with it,
ps: the vodafone software caused all the trouble for me.
hope this helps regards josh
Garvin tobago, 03 Dec 2008I touch one today and play with it in the store and i hate it.i will wait for the n97 or n98.n... moreTobago, what was your peeve with the n96 , did the mobile TV work? I wantre to hey one but after I read the reviews I'm getting a n95 8g instead
hey guys !!!! i heard that ый of nokia n96 is absolutely the same as noia n96 ....is it realy or no???? describe okease sound quality via good head phones with comparison to nokia n91-I mean base volume level dinamic range clearity and others.
thanks a lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today I got the new Version of N96 and belive me there is no hangups or poor battery Life etc .
Its a great phone so ask ur vender for the new latest N96 not the old one .
why 950 mAh battery!!! it should be 1200 or 1350!! to me it is a big mistake, and disadvantage.
I bought one few days ago. All is well, but the battery is criminally bad - using an N96 as a plain phone is possible, but using any of the fancy possibilities it has drains the battery rapidly.
I bought an N96 NAM from Best Buy two days ago for $700 and I'm taking it back.
I absolutely love the damn thing, but I hate the keyboard. I'm a huge texter, and the keypad just sucks.
I think the N95 has the best alphanumeric keypad for texting, ever. The T-Mobile Wing has the best QWERTY that I've used, but there are a lot out there that I haven't.
I'll wait for the N97, I guess.
iam gonna buy The N96 Monday..,like i said before iam real Nokia fan And in this last 2 Weeks i have been using a iPhonie 2G the way iam curious so so My N97 is waiting for me next year 09 yes i love space in monster this is for my collection.
iam not English
I dont know why, NOKIA always making phone very FAT..The n95 was FAT BOY, and this one N96 same as n95..I dont like this phone, because IPHONE IS THE BEST
