When then phone rings while it is lock, notice a green bar moving from left to right.It is actual an arrow. Swipe the arrow in that direction.Left to right. That is the only way to answer the phone when it is lock.When you hang up, the phone remain lock! I´m sure you will love this feature once you learn to use it.

Is there anyone who has not experienced camera lens scratch or if the lens scratch is avoidable by true maintenance or not? Does Nokia fix the scratch? What about removing lens cover totally or partly?

Format mass storage then hardnreset phone !
after months of thinking, i bought N97 white last night despite of negative reviews. I think it depends on how you take care of your phone. I have N82, N95 8GB, N85 and 5800. All I can say is.... thumbs up! I have read lots of bad reviews with those phones but I never experienced those problems. Just waiting for my phone to be delivered next week.
What people like about n97 are
tilt design and qwerty and touch screen
what people hate about n97 are
128ram ( it is apparently working fine with music playing, web browser running and nimbuzz running at the same time, why open so many apps? Tips are install apps like Swiss maanger pro /handy taskman to kills all open apps with one click, don't put widget on homescreen, my suggestion is to put two icon shortcut bars, music player, two/one contact bar, avoid running apps in the background) close app the right way! Buy mugen 1800mah battery which last you 17hours for heavy users
434mhz CPU( so what, as long as it is not painfully slow)
the real issues is the camera Len and gps, but it is recognized by nokia, it mean that you can have it replaced for free!
Anonymous, 21 Nov 2009I think that the Htc Touch Pro 2 is much better than this phone... I don't think so. Nokia phones have far better build quality. Pro2 will break with extended usage. Very weak slider.
