N96 victim, 25 May 2010music player can last for 14h.shame on you Nokia big lairs mine can just last for 2H when list... moreWe all had to face this problem. Still there are a couple of things that might help. The n96 uses the bl-5f 950 mah. But also you can use the bl-6f of the n95-8gb, it has1200 mah. The battery is bigger and it's a bit difficult to make it fit in the n96 but it can be done. A friend of mine whe works at a gsm service helped me with that. This battery lasts now longer. Second thing there is a code *#3370* that is supposed to increase battery life by deactivating the efr(enhanced full rate codec) . That means that the phone receives less signal network so less talk quality but gains 30% more life battery. Phone will restart automaticly after you dialled it. On my phone that did not work nothing happend when i dialled it maybe it will work on yours. Don't wory this code will not delete enything that you might have installed.
robin, 25 May 2010Thank you. Will upgrade my firmware and give my feedback.Forget to tell you.... There is another way dial*#0000# and the firmware that you have on the phone along with other things will appear. On le left side -options -check for updates and this then you will receive the results from the nokia software updater. Or this aplication can be downloaded from the nokia site i think i had it when i bought the phone so i don't the code. Hope this helps.
music player can last for 14h.shame on you Nokia big lairs mine can just last for 2H when listning to music.I use genuine battery & the version 30.033.

Probably nokia have service points in every country. It's called nokia care or something like that in some countryes. As for the tv problem i really don't hnow maybe the dvb-h format is not supported in your country. Enyway as i've said go to one of nokia service points for the firmware but don't expect lighning speed with this. Still the phone is faster and doesn't hang eny more.

Here we advice each other when somebody has a question in a polite and civilized maner. Even with the latest firmware that i have instored on my n96 it's speed is not as fast as n95 which i also have. Still altought n96 is considered by many as a failure for me it's a very good phone. If you have eny other comments express them in a appropiate maner! Keep that in mind !
What thhe hell do you mean N96 is dead slow??? Try upgrading to firmware 30.101 and you'll see lightning speed.
N96 Dual 264 Mhz don't fuck too much. Try upgrading otherwise then that sucks for you. Way better than N95.

It also depends on what you want from a phone. The n96 has greater storage capacity, larger screen , much better camera and video recording is clearly superior. Both e66 and e75 are much faster then n96. They have a 369 proccesor compared to 264 of n96. The arena is also a multimedia device so it comes down to these 2 .

sibu, 17 May 2010hey frens.......shud i buy dis oldie or somethin new ......actuly i need big screen , ok quali... moreN96 is about as good as it gets for your use i think, the 16gig internal memory is fantastic, and just add a microSD card to expand. Also as Stefan says, audio quality is good, or not bad anyway, but you need better than the original headset then. Mine sounded great even with the cheapest Sony, i think i paid only like 10 Singapore dollars for it one time i had a few hours to kill in Changi airport.
Battery life however is not that great for non-stop music.
Display is low resolution, and its 4:3 aspect ratio makes it somewhat unsuitable for watching widescreen video.
You could get a used 5800 for cheaper, but then at best with a 8gig memory card. 8gig is not too bad anyway, i never had that much music on a cellfone, but videos, yes... Then 8gig is like nothing. Then battery, last much longer on 5800 and its much better for watching video with its 640x360 widescreen display (N96 is only 320x240).
Disadvantage with 5800 (or 5530) is the camera, N96s cam is sooooo much better. Never mind the Carl Zeiss branding of lens on 5800, its not good no matter what name they give it. I think the antique N73 had better cam. But 5800/5530 takes acceptable photos, your girlfriend will still look like your girlfriend in the photos, so ok...
