The N97 let me down, I rushed to buy the phone, to my surprise the battery wouldn't last more than 10hours. I also noticed how easy is it to turn on the camera while the phone is your pocket and the camera cover is closed.
I regret buying the Nokia N97.
Would someone advice me how to solve this problem and how i can use the phone safely for a year, atleast to enjoy my money i spent on it.
WTF... my nokia n97 camera lens start to scratch by the lens cover....
Chris_Skylock, 19 Dec 2009FM transmitter is not working if I put it on the radio and someone said it's supposed to by 1 ... moreif you look in the help section of fm transmitter, it does say that it's supposed to work from a distance of up to 2metres. i have tried it from 2metres and it's not fantastic because there's interference but it works fine up to about 1.5metres. it sounds like there's something wrong with your phone, unless it's the stereo.
pls can someone use this phone to trade forex i mean downloading a platform on the phone can is support the application ........
can somebody tell me how to identify a genuine nokia phone by the 7th and 8th digits in IMEI...And in which country is it manufactrd if the numbrz are 03?? im kinda confused...what do you guys have there?? thanxxxnys
FM transmitter is not working if I put it on the radio and someone said it's supposed to by 1 meter or 2. I wonder what's happening to my phone? is it broken?
It'll not boot if I download something from Ovi Services.
Im going to write to Nokia about these problems right now.
Hi, I've previously owned the N79 and now N97. Well the screen is bigger but CPU is very slow don't try to lay a game etc. Symbian is chunky for a phone too insufficient to be an OS.
why some phones have 'made by nokia' printed in the box? Are those phones bad?? Answer soon..Thanx in advance..
Sharma P, 18 Dec 2009I am planning to buy Nokia N 97. My application is only usage of mail. Please give feed on... morelike another poster said, if email is very important to you, you might want to try out other phones on the market first. The native email client of the n97 is quite pathetic imo, nowhere near good enough for a flagship device. It's ugly, way too elementary. Just pick up an n97 and try out the email, you will see immediately what i mean. There are of course 3rd party email apps, but a smartphone these days should have a good email client out of the box imo.

Please give feed on... moreHi sharma. in my opinion, if email is the most important thing to you, then i wouldn't suggest the n97. the default mail client is rudimentary at best, and while Nokia Messaging (a free email app) works well it is very limited in that you can only access the last 3 days' email, and it uses phone memory. other popular mail clients like profimail and emoze work well but profimail isnt free and free version of emoze only has one email address. if you're happy to pay then fine. i would suggest trying out the phone first, as there are phones out there with better built in mail clients.
now to your questions.
a and b. sending and receiving mail speeds are fine. i use nokia messaging and receive mail immediately.
c. the latest firmware has stabilized the phone but there is still some occasional lagging or hanging. i updated to v20 a month ago and in that time my phone has hung 2 times. not too bad imo.
d. my phone has never overheated or felt too warm.
e. i have had the phone for two and a half months and my keyboard keys are as good as new. i have not really heard of any complaints or problems with durability of keyboard.
carlos, 18 Dec 2009my phone seams to be warmer then any other phone. it feels like there is a short somewhere is... morei don't think it's normal. it shouldn't get that hot. mine doesn't. as for the battery dropping a bar in 5 hours, it depends on how you use it. if you use it heavily during that time eg. wifi and online tasks, then i think that's quite normal. the battery is ok, but not fantastic. if you want, you can conserve battery by changing network mode to gsm and decreasing screen brightness. i have found that this has improved my battery.
I am planning to buy Nokia N 97. My application is only usage of mail.
Please give feed on the following
a. Speed of receiving mail is faster?
b. Is the sending mail is faster?
c. Is there hanging problem?
d. Is the Nokia N97 gets warms when we talk for 5 to
e. Is the letter is on key pad is durable?
my phone seams to be warmer then any other phone.

my mxit reads connection error even my mig. only facebook works. any advice? never changed any connection settings!!!
Frustrated, 18 Dec 2009Its quite frustrating that this phone cannot be purchased in white from all service proivders ... moreI was JUST at MTN in Cape Town and they had the white N97 in stock. If you look I'm sure you will find. Or they can get you one at another branch.
Larry, 18 Dec 2009didn't mean to make you feel stupid, sorry if i did. Just trying to help. I only found out abo... moreWe all need help, sometimes, wether we know it or not so I appreciate you for reminding me what to do. The memory card trick really works but I do frequently change batteries as I dont like USB charging and Im using my Nokia E90 as my charger device.
Im going to write to Nokia about the OVI glitch or if it's possible my phone is a defect but it's over 2 weeks as I purchased it last Nov. 21, 2009. So the store cant replace it now. Whout would Nokia possibly do as I can re-flash my phone same way. I dont think replacing it will do the trick as other countries is doing. This is Philippines, COMPANIES WILL NOT REPLACE BROKEN PRODUCTS. Pfffttt.
Its quite frustrating that this phone cannot be purchased in white from all service proivders in south africa, i.e. MTN, Cell C, Vodacom. What a waste!
Beeso, 17 Dec 2009I have tried push email, it is not working,eventhough i have gmail account has anyone tried it??what email client are you using? I use nokia messaging and emails come through practically instantly. I have a (free) yahoo account and also a hotmail account. Both work perfectly.
1DRAKE1, 17 Dec 2009Hi. A friend of mine had a software upgrade on the n97 and now her home screen gets small and ... moreI don't understand what you mean by "the homescreen get small and then big again"? Yes, when you run your finger or stylus across the homescreen, the content does disappear and reappears if you run something across it again. Is this what you mean? This isn't something that's new to the v20 firmware update.
