Larry, 04 Jan 2010wow...congrats on being able to reboot successfully! so it just fixed itself aye...unfortunate... morei got a problem with my n97 if i install enything i gives me na error mxit facebook if someone will please help me thanks
Why I pick N97 rather than N900: (i hope some users share theirs too)
N900 is already available and shipping when i bought my n97 for the reasons being:
-The Symbian OS= i know its a bit aged and lots of laggy and crashing moments, but really, i got the hang of it. and Maemo is just new to me, totally no idea.
-availablity of apps= new OS means more improvements, and more pending apps (if we could install SIS apps in maemo that'll be great)
-N-GAGE!!!!= one of the best reasons why i have a smartphone are GAMES!!!! BUT! no n-gage for n900 and upcoming 2010 phones :(. i know N-Gage is goin to close, but still, i can play the games i download and post scores, and OVI store will be the new GAME store (i hope the games dont need the N-GAGE app to play it)
-the phone itself= i never used an internet/data tablet before (well at least i can try)
-dimensions= n900 is too bulky for me to be a phone (i already have that problem in my n97)
-other aspects are the battery and hardware (sure the 1320mah battery lasts long in a 5800xm but the apps and processor of the n900 will be the exception).
NOTE: buying n97 doesn't mean i wont get n900 or other maemo phones LOL!!!
Alex, 04 Jan 2010I instaled a theme in my N97 & it hanged,then I turn it off & it didnt turn on again !
S.one ... morehere are some options and tips:
-turn on your phone again. if it doesn't work, do the following:
1. remove the battery, sim card and memory card
2. attach the battery (w/o the sim and mmc) then switch on your device.
3. if successfully turned on, uninstall the theme you just installed (in the case that youinstalled the theme in the phone memory or mass memory)
4. if you installed the theme on the memory card, you can try to delete the theme by connecting it on a computer, if not, you might need to reformat.
5. if non of these solves the problem, perform the MEMORY CARD TRICK (which is already mentioned on the previous post) or a hard reset.
NOTE: if worst happens, nokia care must help you
for those who owns n97 for months now, does the print on keyboard buttons absolute? i mean if they cannot be erased? coz sum of the print on rubber keypads of other phones are deleted with the length of use.

supa tash, 04 Jan 2010i had mine a few months now all was ok.. then last night while on web my batt died, so obvious... moretry to remove the memory card and then turn the phone on without it. you might need to try it a few times. i have a reboot problem, and i often need to try the memory card trick several times for about 30minutes before it reboots. but i get to avoid a hard reset so it's worth it. if you don't have a memory card, put one in and it might reboot. if these don't work, i'm afraid you will need to hard reset (just google it). if you need to do this, you will unfortunately lose all your data that is on phone memory (eg. contacts, calendar entries) but your e drive should be fine. does nokia not have adequate options for backup for macs? shame..and quite unacceptable!
there is one tough competitor for this phone, its the iphone 3GS, see this video -
zak, 04 Jan 2010can some owner of this phone please advice about the sensitivity of the touch screen ?? compar... moreThe screen sensitivity is not quite like the iphone's. iphone uses capacitive touchscreen, while n97 uses resistive. by nature, capacitive is more sensitive. it is heat sensored and slightest touch will affect screen. with the n97's screen, you do need to apply a bit of pressure to affect the screen, and it is easier if you use a nail also (you can of course use a stylus - or any object really - to affect the screen of resistive phones).
its music has so much clarity than others & t.scrn is like experiencing d apple i ph.. all users wht i suggest u go 2 nokia cre & update ur ph. Wid latest soft.ver. Problems will always go awaY From ur gadget.bye .akash
can some owner of this phone please advice about the sensitivity of the touch screen ?? comparable to what ??

i want to buy this phone,but i am having confusion about his speaker sound loudness.can anyone tell me compare to which phone its speaker sound is similar.
can sum1 tell me how to tranfer a movie from a computer into this phone , coz when i do i does not show on my phone plz
supa tash, 04 Jan 2010i had mine a few months now all was ok.. then last night while on web my batt died, so obvious... moreI suggest you do the memory card trick or the MODIFIED MEMORY CARD TRICK - whichever is the best. you can stlll use it if you manage to hack* thru
*doing the memory card trick
i had mine a few months now all was ok.. then last night while on web my batt died, so obviously i charged it, but it wont come back on, gets as far as poering on screen displaying NOKIA and thats it??? im gutted do u reckon iv lost all data on it? numbers ect. im a mac user hence why i hadnt been able to back up my stuff.
Shame on Nokia after updating to 20.0.027 dtd 30.10.09
latest has worsened its software, esp boot freeze problem, mem card trick is silly, what are they doing to there flagship product. The Chinese shift has destroyed its fame. Give us immediately new update,where is the fly brains of nokia engineers R&D team gone.
