.need.to.know.basis., 13 Dec 2009i'm in need of useful/constructive replies though not urgent from you guys/gals smartphone gur... moreQuestion 1: yes, the "cleaner" the mobile phone prior to firmware update, the better the performance. this is based on several subjective observations by phone enthusiast. it's recommended that you do this the first time you get hand of the phone when you haven't loaded apps and other pieces of information.
Question 2: fumbly? the phone is meant to be one-handed. if you have large fingers, you'll appreciate the wide spaced number keys. If you're the type of person who types using two thumbs on a T9 keypad, that is also possible.
Well, have been using N96 for like 8months now. initially when i started using it. I got frustrated because it normally hangs and sometimes goes off. But after updating it to firmware 30.033 version...then i was able to see the different side of it....so far so good. it is the best phone i have ever used, when it come to entertainment there is no dull moment with this phone. In fact for maximum enjoyment. try to get an extra original Nokia battery. It is my best companion. kudos to N96. Merry Xmas to all
aj2009, 05 Nov 2009Can anyone help me? when i try to transfer my music from PC to my phone , it says " not enou... morehi the phone is set to store the incoming information on the phone memory change that in the bluetooth settings to mass memory and if you are going to use nokia pc suite then change the seetings to mass memory in the phone setting section
this is the worst phone ever - i have had it replaced 3 times and now this one has given up i will never buy another nokia after 15 years of nokia experience. nokia does care less either
Well i have n96 wich i simply love, i have iphone 3gs 32 gb and i have SE Satio too. I must say how practical Nokia is, i use it as mass storage, navigation, phone mail reader, pics are grate batery life well so so, screen is grate. Only thing i hate is the damn firmware,i conect the phone to pc and it delets my themes and slows down my phone, when i put thems on phone is 4 times slower then normal. But i am selling satio and iphone and nokia stays :)
Merry Christmas to Nokia N96 the king of phones. It is still unbeatable and has all the future technologies. It is a computer, digital camera, digital television and all about multimedia. I am proud to celebrate this Christmas with this extraordinary and expense phone in Ghana, wish Nokia all the best next year.
Merry Christmas to everyone and God be with as all.
Sounds good and easy for I just wonder if it has a No. screening for those unwanted callers?? Appreciate somebody's user's rep
Girlfriend has N96 and is having trouble sending text, is there a simple solution to this or is it another technical fault waiting for updates to resolve.
should be straight forward replying to a text sent but not so with this phone.
any help? kind regards O!.
Nokia N96 is the same price as the Nokia N97 in the Philippines? Wow! I cant decide if I were to buy a phone now but I have a Nokia N97. I will continue to daydream about this phone. I like to watchlve TVs on the go
Irshan, 11 Dec 2009Can anybody confirm me how will Video calling/front cam will be activated in N96??you have an option when u call normal call or video call
i'm in need of useful/constructive replies though not urgent from you guys/gals smartphone gurus specifically HAPPY N96 users if i may.while i've been part PC hardware/tweaks enthusiast,i can't really say i've been into smartphones that much due to my shall we say "suspicion" at the market prices' bang for buck ratio.call me conservative but only right till this year that i'm comfortable enough to see the recent fast tech developments in the area to justify these too close to notebook PC prices for smartphones.well that's a long intro so...
...i'm actually saving up for any newer 2010 android models like maybe the rumored nexus one (google phone) or the htc bravo.but recently a relly of mine rang and she's on a foreign assignment and saw a nice offer for an N96.she's getting 1 for me because she thought i might be interested to give a symbian phone top to bottom tweaks;ya know stuff like changing product codes,trying diff firmwares that sort of thing.granted that it's a way too old symbian version of a phone but hey it's free and on the usability aspect,i might just be able to delay my own target smartphone purchase if even for a short time.
so my questions are:-
1. i've been googling and lurking in forums.curiously almost all "1st time guides" recommends a thorough reformatting of the phone's memory + mass memory BEFORE the firmware update?is the default firmware that bad?how or why is this important on the efficiencies part?will future micro SD add-on i'm planning on bog down that effort for speed?
2. on a more practical day to day usage basis,how "fumbly" is this phone 1 or 2 handed?will it require heavy customizations to help either way?
that's all and thank you so much for bearing with me :)
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970n86 has a better overall performance + fm transmiter and charge via usb as compared to n96....but if ONLY u are interested in tv function go for n96....i have n86 its awesome
Nas, 10 Dec 2009can someone please tell me whether there is keypad lock security code on N96? thanksCan anybody confirm me how will Video calling/front cam will be activated in N96??
Nas, 10 Dec 2009can someone please tell me whether there is keypad lock security code on N96? thanksNot on keylock, but it does have an auto-lock feature after a specified number of minutes. Also, if you've upgraded the firmware, it allows remote locking by sms (you send a lock message to the phone from another phone, and your N96 will lock itself, and even send a sms back to you saying 'Phone locked'). Call me geeky, but that's cool!
