Anonymous, 28 Dec 2009i've bought it few days earlier. Today after receiving a call it got hanged. I have tried seve... moreI bought my phone two months ago. It already broke down once. Took it to Nokia, service was good but still didn't expect it to break down in one month. Was fine for a month and now it hanged on me. The bad thing is even if I take the battery out and put it back in and switch it on, it still hangs. Can't use it at all. Will have to take it to Nokia again. Problem is I didn't buy it in the country where I am staying in right now. Can be quite annoying. Have been a Nokia user since the 5110 days. Up to 8210, 6600, 6630, n90, n80, n95, n95 8gig and now n97. This might be my last Nokia.
in support to my last post, i got a problem when receiving a call, its not unlocking automatically, what i did is to unlock by sliding the side lock quickly before answering a call, and i already got the hang of it,
no problems in messaging (i havent try e-mails though)
no problems in n-gage (its perfect!!!)
no problems in charging through wall or USB
-i havent drop the phone yet, maybe i still dont have that routine
-3G not yet supported in my current location (though n97 is already in the market in some provinces)
-most of the problems are in my web/default browser, always snaps me back in the main screen after minutes of using.
WHOA???!!! so many problems after being gone for a week, well, i'm a week close to have a monthsary with my n97, so far, i dont have problems, (except for crashing apps, its normal for s60 though),
here are some info of my n97, and what i do with it after i got it, so far. hope this will help:
-product code: 0586199 (v12.0.026, no updates yet)
-RM-505 (i dont know why i posted that)
-i bought it from U.S. through online
-hard reset and factory reset before using the phone
-input country, city, etc.
-charge phone for 6hrs after battery drains
after few days:
-hard reset (due to OVI failing)
-uninstall ovi and Facebook widget
-removed all updates (after hard reset though)
-wi-fi to the maximum
-music play at max volume (my mom almost killed me)
-downloaded widgets (web based OVI)
-super multi-task (web, music etc...)
-took almost 130 images and 5 videos of 1 hour max
after 2 weeks:
-installed/update apps (adobe and quick office)
-got frustrated on pre-installed apps that i cant remove
-hard reset (OVI app is starting when i browse OVI store through web browser)
-installed Opera Mobile 10
-system crashed (opera moblie 10 ate 32mb of RAM)
-updated software (except OVI and Nokia Messaging)
-installed Opera Mobile 10(2)
-synced phone to p.c suite
-installed sw updater
-no updates yet
-walking with phone for -23 degrees Celsius (its in the pocket of my winter jacket)
I think thats it!!!!!
i've bought it few days earlier. Today after receiving a call it got hanged. I have tried several ways to restart the phone but all went in vein. Finally i had to remove the battery. Does any one ever face this kind of problem? What is the solution? One more thing which i have noticed is the camera quality is really poor compare to N73. It looks pale while taking picz using flash. Found no improvement while switching off flash. Appreciate if any one let me know the process of taking picz using n97.
