You need to get it unlocked. Take it to any cell phone repair shop OR you can ask your providers to assist. If your provider is willing to get it unlocked for you they may or may not charge you. They may ease you up by not charging you seeing that you plan to go with their network.
Let me know the outcome of things. Good luck.
a friend of mine who lives in france has given me an NOKIA N97 but it doesn't work here in my country. When i insert the sim card the fone shown "sim card not recognized" ; i've tried with the two operators of my country wich is CAMEROON and the same way is shown. i want to know what i'm supposed to do to solve that problem please help, me! the operators of my country are ORANGE and MTN
I just made a switch to the n97 from my iphone 3g, and i'm pleasantly surprised so far. I thought i wouldn't like the resistive screen that much, but it's very responsive and i like being able to use my fingernail. The only thing i miss is multi-touch. I've had no problems with the phone so far and i've had it for 2 weeks..no lagging, no freezing, no bugs. The web browsing experience is a bit better on my old iphone, but the n97 has flash and it loads youtube vids very fast. I like being able to change my screen, and after using the keyboard i think it'll be hard to go back to a phone without one - typing is so much faster. I'm very happy with this phone.
Firmware 2.0 is not far away now:))))
smartmovie play 700mb avi file smoothly, hope coreplayer release their touch version very soon
if the firmware 2 live up to expectation, my n97 is not far away! N900 is nicer but not my type of form:(
say the latest smartmovie by lcg
support the unconverted avi movie files

jibsonmine, 22 Oct 2009A word of warning... Don't get your hopes up too high. In the "Firmware Update... moreThanks for that. Personally, I don't mind waiting a little longer for the firmware if it means nokia are doing all they can to ensure it'll be a great product. I just hope that doesn't mean that it will be the last firmware update for the n97. I'm running v12 and I'm having no problems with it.
sam, 22 Oct 2009hey i cant download no games and i have only guitar pro how to download or put games in this.....Where are you trying to download the games from? From the ovi store? What exactly is the problem - is it not installing or not downloading at all?
A word of warning...
Don't get your hopes up too high.
In the "Firmware Updates in the UK - Campaign for Equality" thread we have had a visit from someone with a "nokia" icon next to his name (yes, there was a chorus from the celestual choir!).
Anyway, he said, and I quote
"I am not sure about the origin of the above but what I can say is that the schedule is incorrect.
We are for sure putting the N97 PR2.0 out for public download as soon as possible. PR2.0 will be a major overhaul of the PR1.x baseline. In fact, there is so much new stuff included that we will first introduce PR2.0 via NSU. The schedule for PR2.0 is still not verified, but I'd expect to find the open market versions being distributed by the end of this month (this is not a promise). You will be notified of the new SW availability via myNokia (are you a member yet?) and the in-built SW update application on your N97, which will notifiy you about new firmware releases in NSU and/or FOTA as well as core application updates such as Maps etc.
FOTA updates to PR2.0 will follow in due course.
I know that there is a lot of anticipation for this release and therefore we are putting an extra effort to ensure that your update experience will make it worth the waiting.
In addition to the above, next week we are introducing the latest version of the NSU client so be aware that you will have to update your currently installed version. The main changes in the new client include support for the N900 product as well as some minor improvements."

This is due to virus only....bcoz
n97 is very good mobile
I am very much disappointed with my newly purchased N97 handset that I have purchased just 3 days ago. I purchased a new N97 handset from Nokia authorized Shop,Indira Nagar, Lucknow on 16.10.09. Just after one hour from the time of purchase I found that my handset was getting OFF on its own and was rebooting. When I faced this problem after every 15 min, I contacted the Nokia dealer and got my handset changed. I faced the same problem with that N97 handset also. I took that handset to Nokia Service Centre and got its software reinstalled, but the problem continued. So, the dealer gave me another new N97 handset, but I am facing the same problem with my this new handset as well. I changed my SIM card, but the handset is giving problem with my other SIM card as well...so, this problem is definitely not related to SIM card. I feel strongly that Nokia is no more quality conscious and I as a customer is not at all happy with your product (N97 handset).
i'm OK with my new N97 so far. The reason people are complaining is probably because they have chosen the wrong type of phone for their type of application...
hey i cant download no games and i have only guitar pro how to download or put games in this.....
Wht dont nokia add another slot in their fones to accept a ram chip so we can just order a bigger ram chip like you can upgrade storage card,,,the s/e p990,n95 and on and on all were ram crippled..It would be superb and solve so many problems wouldnt it..Why is there such a small amount of ram on these powerful devices its stupid it just ruins the device,,ram is expensive but so are the fones if they cant work properly cause been stingy on ram..
Audio of microphone is poor, handfree does not work ...bugs a lot...software is very slow...unhappy my choice!!! :(
Jay, 22 Oct 2009Hi Mohammed, i think it should be a serious Nokia problem, coz i cnt understand why the contac... moreI had a similiar incident but solved it.I did a phone switch from my n95 for my contacts and they came up but the next day were gone until i did another phone switch back to my n97. Now everything is fine. Even though you cant see your contacts,do a phone switch to another phone if you have one or to a friends phone.Then put them in manually back to your n97. Phone switch on n97,settings,connectivety,data transfer,phone switch. Or try phone switch back to your n97.Has to be another Nokia. Hope this helps!
mohammed imran, 21 Oct 2009Hi jay, Nokia itself is confused tht where these contacts go save still working out on this.. ... moreHi Mohammed, i think it should be a serious Nokia problem, coz i cnt understand why the contacts do not display n it says no contacts while they are there in the phone memory. Nokia should have a serious look at it.
