further to my earlier message. I have persevered with this phone and must admit I still think this phone is cr*p. The i-player is wi-fi only. So if you are at home you can watch tv (which is where I usually watch tv anyway) and if you are out you will have to knock on doors to get access keys to other peoples wlan. There is a leaflet in the box when you get the phone. It says "thank you for buying the N96. Your phone is loaded with production software and may freeze at times. Do not worry,this is normal. Just in on the website and download updates when they become available". So now instead of pre-sale trials,we are the guinea pigs. We do their testing for them -and pay highest price for the privilege. Makes of want to cry.
goku, 02 Oct 2008i heard N95-8GB is better then N96 what do u think guys ?i sold out N96 have many problems r there.Now using my N95 8gb
what about this video?
it's not looking good!
thanks in advance!
goku, 02 Oct 2008i heard N95-8GB is better then N96 what do u think guys ?lets just say that n95 8gb users have no reasons at all to upgrade to n96 knowing that n96 doesn't bring so much new features but dvb~h & 16gb only.
Have any uk users tried out the bbc iplayer yet?
I put it on my n95 today. It's pretty cool, but it's wifi only, streaming only (no download option) and no radio programmes.
Is it the same for you guys? Is yours the same beta version?
waited six months for this. what a waste of time. A lot of the features don't work. Or only work partialy. It looks nice though. But so would a bunch of flowers.
This is just an expensive paperweight.
The moral of this is : Go to a shop and try it first - REALLY TRY IT - NOT JUST HOLD IT AND BE SUCKERED IN BY THE HYPE AND SALESMEN. They are only there to make money, your hard earned cash.
I am putting my sim back in my N73.
read in symbian guru
n96's video recording (for now) maxes out at 352x288 at 15fps
is this true?
got phone today and its going back today the phone is not compatable with mac at all not even the bluetooth setting the flash is poor and the picture is nothing special.
the centre button is awkward and if you have big hands you will choosing the wrong options all the time.
the screen is good playback on video is good and its quite fast on the internet

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Nokia N95 has 8 Gb..and Nokia N96 has 16 Gb memory
there are HUGE differences between CECT phones (chinese cloned nokia phones) & GENUINE nokia phones MADE IN CHINA!!! the CECT phones (chinese cloned nokia phones) only copy the design of the GENUINE nokia phones made in china BUT NOT the features, that's why CECT phones (chinese cloned nokia phones) sell at a VERY MUCH LOWER price! ON THE OTHERHAND, there is NO DIFFERENCE in the quality of GENUINE nokia phones MADE IN CHINA or MADE IN FINLAND. the hardware, chips, software and all circuitries are JUST THE SAME! the only difference is from where they were assembled into finished products! if you live in asia, you notice that MADE IN FINLAND nokia phones are a LITTLE MORE EXPENSIVE than MADE IN CHINA nokia phones. it is because MADE IN FINLAND nokia phones have the SHIPMENT COST added to its price!
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2008AnonymousReport TO NOKIA: Im from Philippines and here in our country theres a lot of China ... morethe thing is ONLY CHINA has the capacity to make LARGE volume of production of nokia phones to accomodate equally LARGE consumer demands. no other countries in the world can do that that's why the largest nokia headquarter is based in china. if china will stop producing nokia phones, then supply of nokia phones will decrease dramatically, and nokia will lose profits and will eventually lose its market share as the number one mobile phone manufacturer!
Im from Philippines and here in our country theres a lot of China made Nokia imitation phones, so we think that even the original Nokia made in China is also a FAKE product, and I Love Nokia phones but many people here are afraid of buying Nokia phones now becoz of this, and sad to say most of original Nokia phones here are made in China…..so can we ask the Nokia company to stop making your phones in China!!! Your good reputation as a company is tainted by these Chinese imitation makers…… ....
