I've had this phone for 2 months and had quite a few problems, mainly due to instability. In 2 months, i've had to hard reset the phone 3 times because it refused to turn on or hung. It's a great phone when it works, but was too unstable. I was ready to throw it away and get an iphone, but decided to wait for the new firmware. I updated to v20 a couple of days ago and it's breathed new life into the phone! Faster, more stable - it hasn't hung or frozen once since. This was the firmware that the phone should have been released with. I'm relieved i waited for the firmware. Very happy right now.
Don't change product code for v20 update, void warranty! Just wait!
don't hack with helloox 2, sign each apps individually instead, because rompatcher use much battery power
there is a good article in nokiausers.net forum about tweak your n97 to perfection if you are concerned about the battery power on n97!:)))

If your are interested in debranding, just google it and there are plenty of guides explaining how to do it for the n97.

REALLY REALLY DONT!!!!!!!!!!
I have been a Nokia fan since mobiles came out, I have always had one. I have had every flagship model over the last 6 years and almost every N series phone... the N80 back in the day was bad in the begining but the N97 takes the cake. The bugs are to long to go into here - but just google it and see.
The problem is, is it does not work as it should - plain and simple.
I know "some people" will like this phone, thats fine. But to all considering it.. My advice would be to stay away.
Sadly this will be the last Nokia I will buy untill they can release a stable handset from the get go.
Sad day for a longtime Nokia fan, Nokia you have brought it on yourself. You will take years to get to iphone\Blackberry stability if you ever do.
Your simple handsets are great... pity about your highend "so called flagships.

While receiving a call i have to unlock the phone first and then tap answer which i find irritating. In Nokia 5800 i could answer the call without unlocking ie I could take the call directly by tapping answer. I would like to know whether all N97 users are having the same problem.

Why does a phone with 32gb memory not give you the option to save contacts to the hard disk instead of the phone memory?!!?
To all those who tried helping me to get back my contacts, today i formatted the phone memory and reinstalled all contacts and everything is ok. I Love the n97. Best phone ever.

Am sorry but mayb u have a wrong n97. i bought mine in august, so i was among the first to get the n97 and its a very nice phone. And currently, after using the experia and the iphone, i say N97 IS THE BEST.
