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!

Nokia should have a serious look at it.

I have had no major problems with my phone and I'm very happy with it, but Nokia do need to give Symbian an overhaul. The user interface definitely needs a makeover, as it looks practically the same as on Nokia phones from 5 years ago! It does need to look a bit more modern and fresh, and they need to improve their transition effects. I also don't think that it makes the smoothest of transitions to touchscreen, and could be a bit more intuitive (eg. sometimes it takes one or two more presses than necessary to perform functions). Nokia is playing catch-up in the touchscreen market.
Lauren, 21 Oct 2009Thanks for the replies! Where can I the latest v12 version to update my firmware?The easiest way to upate is going into applications on your phone, then click software update. You need internet connection. It should come up with a list of available software updates (from game software to firmware). For the latest firmware choose 'phone software' then start the update. Make sure you back up your phone first, just in case something goes wrong and you lose everything! Alternatively, you can update via your pc with nokia software updater, which you can get on the nokia website. NB: if it can't find the latest firmware, it might be because your region doesn't have it available yet. Just keep checking every week or so, you will eventually get it. Hope this helps!

i am a big nokia fan,nokia phones are great. the n97 rocks but man... symbian os is an old story now when there are winmo, android, iphone os and others. symbian is old now!!!
Harry, 20 Oct 2009Lauren, try to update your firmware to the latest v12 version. It's very stable, and is a mass... moreI find V12 more sluggish than V11, it hangs up too much when texting or answering calls. I'm getting fed up waiting for V20 which was supposed to be out last week.
mohammed imran: You might have the phone looking for contacts on the phone itself. If you go in to settings, you can choose where the phone looks for contacts. I am guessing they are on your sim... Hope this helps.
