Anonymous, 01 Nov 2008Can someone please tell me to use DVB-H if a tv sim is needed in South Africa.Yes A special sim is needed wich is called the USIM.......
What is a USIM?
In order to continue receiving the DVB-H trial signal, you will need to swap your current SIM card for a new USIM. A USIM will be provided free of charge to all trial recipients of the Sagem myMobileTV handset or you may Purchase one from MTN service stores near you.
USIM stands for Universal Subscriber Identity Module. A USIM looks exactly like a SIM and identifies a subscriber to the network in exactly the same way as a SIM does. However, a USIM has a higher data storage capacity and is better suited to more sophisticated mobile applications, such as DVB-H and 3G. In the DVB-H environment a USIM operates in much the same way as a DStv smartcard does in your decoder or PVR.
I dont knw how u get the Vodacom USIM ...im on MTN and planing 2 Get THe N96 next month

This new phone of nokia is very bad battery,all features become useless,here in norway nokia is starting going down

All in all a pretty pointless exercise but yes you are right the battery will last longer.
DANIEL, you are right!!! Maybe N96 is nothing to write home about, but it is a good phone and if one knows how to use it all is ok. For instance, I upgraded the software over the air and things DID improve!!! Better and quicker camera, improved battery life (3 days - 3G disabled). PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THEIR PHONE AND HOW TO USE IT, AND THEN TALK...

Whats worse is that he seems to do it every week. Or the dude who is a few posts below who said 'another childish nokia phone'. Thats just plain silly.
Yes, there are those nokia fanboys who go to other forums and simply bash the other manufacturers solution saying things like 'this phone sucks, nokia rocks' or 'what a waste' or 'Worst decision i have ever made-im sticking with my nokia'. That is simply senseless and disrespectful.
I agree that the voting process is really messed up these days and very few phones actually get evaluated properly. Those that gain the most attention like iphone are the rather unlucky due to their controversial nature. The phones which no one seems to notice seem evaluated better.
I guess the 5800xm is showing just how much people want a symbian touchscreen phone. Its quite shocking to see how popular its become (More than 8500 votes in a month). Personally, apart from the lack of a lens cover, i dont see anything wrong with it, at least according to the reviews and videos. It has received its fair share of bashing with statements like 'iphone copy' or 'its a test dummy-wait for the n-series version'. But i have to admit that the bashing there isnt as much as the n96 forum or other phone forums.
Im just encouraging guys to post useful statements. No bashing of any phone or manufacturer.
