napster, 20 Oct 2009throw your phone its useless.Tanks bt i still like it despite all. can anyone else help?
The phone is terrible, I had it just for two days. It has almost no usefull aplications for downloading, the GPS has an intermitent signal what makes it barely useless and the battery lasts just one day. The phone is far away from its specifications.
Has anyone in canada on the fido network been able to connect to 3G on their N97? I have the RM-505 model (asia version) & whenever I try to connect to 3G, it fails & connects to EDGE (which blows).

It's very stable, and is a massive improvement from the original firmware the phone was released with. Also, as someone else has said, maybe you think that the phone is locked, but only the backlight has dimmed, so when you slide the unlock button on the side you actually lock it, then have to slide it again to unlock it. I know I've made that mistake a few times! Press the silver button on the bottom left corner first, and if the phone is indeed locked it will tell you to use the side button.

HI Friends.Iwant to know how can i get msn messenger for this phone.
Any expert here
1..if I get the cert from opda site, and sign the unsigned apps, will the signed apps I signed with the cert expire after some period of time?
2...Signed app with my own cert will work with other n97 phone?
Must have apps for n97
garmin mobile xt
quickoffice & adobe PDF reader
and some decent 2d games like catch'em
thanks, would we still need more apps? I would say NO
N97 os is the mini/symbian version of maemo5 or maemo 6!
Features like panonamic desktop and dash board! Mini fennec on symbian:)
This phone has the great form factor and excellent design
btw nokia annouced the camera Len design fault and poor gps reception problem
you can take yr phone to nokia servcice center for repair for free
don't care about the lack of 3d, cause ibdony have much time for gaming
don't care 128 of ram, cause some users claims that it work well with music player, web browsing and nimbuzz running together!
Don't care a bout 434mhz, it is higher the one in than e71
don't care about the euro 449 now, iPhone 3gs 32g unlocked sell for double the price of n97

Lauren, 20 Oct 2009Hi, I got a N97 a few weeks ago. The phone is great, but sometimes when I unlocked the phone, ... moreLauren, another explanation may be related to the backlight time-out. The maximum setting is 60 sec. It may happen that when you pick the phone up to use it, you think it is locked but in fact it is just the backlight that has dimmed. To activate the screen backlight, press the silver menu hardware key once. But if you push the slide lock key, the phone will lock but not activate the backlight and it will seem as if the phone is not responding to the lock key.
It is one of my frustartions with the lock key design - you should be able to determine at a glance if the phone is locked or just dimmed, but you can't. And it is made worse by the fact that the maximum backlight time is 60 sec. Hope this helps.
