Anonymous, 29 Oct 2009How does firmware 2 perform on n97? Can you share with me?some say it's available but not yet for my N97, hopefully I won't have to wait as long as I did for V12 after it was released.
Why there is no mplayer or vlc for symbian v5
no one is interested in playing movies without conversion?

I send extremely long sms messages with not problem. I don't think it's an issue with the phone, but with your carrier. I'd suggest to call them and ask them.
Does anyone know how can I set up the message to be sent when longer than 160 characters? When I try to send longer message, it just stays as pending in the delivery report field. Pls help

I just got my n97 3 days ago and haven't been able to put it down. I'm new to this smartphone thing, so forgive me if this is a silly question, but when you go on ovi maps do you always need an internet connection for it to work? Will the gps be able to find your location without an internet connection? Thanks in advance.

You won't have that problem if you do, as it goes 'back' without reloading the pages again.
lelane, 29 Oct 2009where can I download filmwear v20?You have to download Nokia software updater to your computer and hook up via usb.Make sure your battery is full and put your phone in offline mode.
Or see if the store where you bought it can update for you!
You also have nokia software update on your n97 in applications which you can use thru data or wi fi, but i was told its not the safest way.

"cant use the phone during charging time" I just tried that now. You know what? It worked for me.
Version 12 solves the key lock and unlock issue
I dont have a problem with n97 touch screen,but i agree iphone capacitive screen is easier to use.
Number 6, i think if you press options and recently visited pages.
My n97 keeps getting stuck. I even had given it to nokia care for repairs but still I have the same problem :(
I love my N97 I don't have any problems with this device, technology is only made for those who know how to use it as for those who don't stop moaning and use your brain lol.
I have to say the mobile is really attractive, but I regret immediately when I got it. There are too many problems:
1) The maps cannot be open some time, the progress bar always stops at 30% or 90%.
2) The alarms delays 3~4 minutes, and sometimes doesn't ring!
3) When battery exhausted, if you charge the phone, the screen is light always, and it's never goes to normal mode. You can't use your phone during charging time!
4) The lock/unlock key doesn't work well some time.
5) The touch screen is not sensitive. I think IPhone's touch screen is much better!
6) If you visit many web pages, and want to go back, the old page has to be reload. This costs money!
This is such a beautiful device. specially now with the v20 update. i guess the only problem i'm still facing is coverage. The phone reception is really bad. I still wonder wether it is because the phone came straight from asia and I use it in toronto or it's just a general problem. Any ideas or feedbacks from someone who is going trought the same situation

If you did those things i mentioned earlier it should have worked. I guess the only thing left to do is take it back to the shop you bought it and ask them to fix or at least diagnose the problem. I haven't been able to get the update yet either. Don't worry, it will come. Apparently the update is only available for unlocked phones at the moment, so if you're with a carrier it might take some time. Just keep checking every week or so.
