I am using N97 for the last one month and I dont see any issues so far. It only hanged once which I am ok as even my laptop hangs some times. I had to take out the battery and it again started working. I have installed many applcations and games which includes cracked Garmin and avtar games. Since many of my previous phones were from Samsung, the biggest difference I see is that we can install many apps without any issues where as in Samsung, we need to hack the phone or have to use codes etc
Hey guys I got my N97 a while ago now and I had no problems with it at all so far. I want to ask you if I didn't update my software from ver 11.xxx to this new ver 20.xxx, would it make differance? The phone is simply perfect for a sumbian with all its wicked gadgets to have fun with!Just make sure that you don't come near its phone memory cause that would kill it!
Also I've heard of N97s that have been freezing and stuff, just *#7370# and choose the country lebanon with the english language and have fun guys, cause none and assure you that no one has had this problem here in Lebanon, including me! Not being a marketier for my country! Just trying to help you guys
reply plz to my comment considering the software ver update!

willy, 05 Jan 2010My phone hanged last night,when i want to turn it on,the screen gets white with nokia on it,it... moreturn on your device again, when that situation still happens, remove the battery without switching of the device. that will do the trick
Manual Hard Reset (Shift, Space, Delete + Power Key) and restore a back-up. All my settings (Except BT and some apps.

Apple today announced that users have now downloaded over three billion iPhone and iPod touch applications from the company's App Store since its July 2008 launch.
"Three billion applications downloaded in less than 18 months -- this is like nothing we've ever seen before," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "The revolutionary App Store offers iPhone and iPod touch users an experience unlike anything else available on other mobile devices, and we see no signs of the competition catching up anytime soon."
With the App Store having reached two billion downloads just over three months ago, the new milestone represents continued acceleration of growth for the store as Apple's handheld devices continue to attract significant numbers of customers. The App Store continues to be available to customers in 77 countries, offering applications in 20 categories.
When you flip the keyboard, you have to apply more force just to do it. Also when I flipped the keyboard out, my finger was caught on it. I couldn't use my finger for a whole day. Kinda sad cause I was a avid supporter of Nokia mobiles. :(

sipho, 04 Jan 2010can sum1 tell me how to tranfer a movie from a computer into this phone , coz when i do i does... moreYour movie format isn't supported by N97. You should encode it to supported format 3GP etc.
In N97 I don't like that when you slide your finger looking for icon of program you need it slides step by step.
I had a Nokia N97. Bought it a month ago but sold it last week. And now, I bought a Nokia N97 Mini. And I could honestly say the N97 Mini is a lot better than the original N97. The size, the looks, it's just a lot better. N97 Mini looks so classy in mocha brown whereas my previous black N97 looked so cheap. N97 mini's screen is also noticeably brighter and the colors are more vibrant and picture quality is sharper than the original N97. I don't mind its screen shrunk to 3.2 inches. It's still large anyway. N97 Mini only has 8GB built-in mass memory in contrast to N97 with 32GB but the phone memory is doubled to 256MB. So I don't have problems installing many apps and themes on N97 mini. I could say that I'm happy with my transition from N97 to N97 mini. The user experience is much better on N97 mini even though the original N97 boasts better specs on paper.
I noticed that my Nokia N97 is now booting from 25 seconds to 31 seconds. 41 seconds seems a bit longer but I am happy that my Nokia N97 is now on its tip-top shape again aside from the scratched lens.
I just remove the battery without turning the phone off, that might be the reason why it fixed itself.
Im going to have the lens replaced and my Nokia N97 will be my Ultimate phone.
gabby131, 04 Jan 2010Why I pick N97 rather than N900: (i hope some users share theirs too) N900 is already avail... morei too chose to get the n97 instead of the n900 and am very happy with my phone. for me, i enjoy apps (had an iphone 3g before) and there simply aren't enough around yet for the new maemo os. the other main reason was that the n900 is a niche phone, which is most suitable for 'tech geeks'. nokia themselves admit that it probably won't have mass appeal. i think it's too powerful for my needs..why do i need to run 15apps at one time? i do think that nokia need to rehaul the outdated symbian os and give it a fresher feel, but i'd rather not use a new os just yet either. maybe in a year or two when maemo is more developed, i will make the switch. but until then, i'm more than satisfied with my n97.
