Had the N97 about a week now and after seeing many poor reviews i cannot understand why.
I am a nokia fan and the N97 has not disappointed.
Only annoying things are;
1) new email alert sign sometimes does not turn off even when you have read the email.
2) Headphones supplied with the phone are poor and do not even work properly (had to use my ipod ones)
Battery life is good, i love the design and the way the screen flips out to reveal the key pad, the phone hasn't shut itself down yet and i have had no other bugs or glitches (touch wood).
All in all, very pleased with the N97 and glad i stayed with nokia
rockingads, 05 Oct 2009guyz i have this phone its been 2 months now...so here what i want to say to those who writes ... moreHi, I am guessing that your abuse in directd at me, dont come here to abuse people understand!
I was the 1 that named 3 things which I did not like and ur coming abusing me?
I myself love this phone and will not trade for any other phone but the things I said was a fact.
Sound quality is ok but not perfect, battery is ok but for 100s of texts per day and hours of chat not best but still I like it no complaints.
The only complaint I had was my head hurts whenever I use this for long which is strange for me, because 1, when I play my ps3 my head doesn't hurt, when I play psp head doesn't hurt, when I sit on my pc for hours no problems, then why in my n97.

guyz i have this phone its been 2 months now...so here what i want to say to those who writes crap abt this phone...i absolutely lve this phone...honestly my phone has never crashed not even once...its strong coz once it directly fell from my bunker bed in college to the marbled ground n not even a scratch...it never hangs unless n untill u charge it for quite a long time and to add upthe battery works for 1 and a half to two days so everyalternate night i charge...sounds quality is awesome...fuck those who says its not..its bullshit..this phone rockz...believe me..am not forcing u to buy this phone or change ur mind...am just stating the facts...
Since i got this phone i have an head-ache. The main reason to buy suh phone is 32GB memroy but that was in active and needs 8 days to repair!! AMAZING! Nokia MADE IN CHINA WILL NOT WORK IN THE MIDDLEAST MARKET.
I am going back to return this mobile but the showroom inchrage is asking to bring the technical report from the authorized service center which is again a next challange for me. however i will have to bring it inorder to get my money back. kinldy check the phone with all features before buying...ok...and thanks.
Flash 10.1 coming to symbian and Linux etc except for iphoneos
that means we can have desktop like web browsing on mobile phone , so n900 is not needed anymore. Go for n97 beatiful phone
Celine, 05 Oct 2009Why is there a light flashing under the menu key all the time???Celine that light flashing is a setting that is called 'Standby Brething light' but you can turn off. Basically it can notify you if you've got a missed event like messages and missed calls by flashing about 3 times or so.
For those who hate the spec of n97
128 ram, Firmwarr 2 will fix the multitasking problem in n97!!!!
434mhz. Normal standard nokia nseries phone speed, the speed is ok with me

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970i bet you could not name all the apps??,,next challenge download all 85,000 to your i-phone..Then go and boil your head..anyhows most of the apps will be repeats and who the hell has got the time to search thru that lot for something?? nice try but i dont care about apple but your nicly upping the score of n97..
Read a great deal of comments and seeing low RAM made me cringe due to memorys of my s/e p990i ..That fone even after numerous updates was crippled due to RAM ,,i could not go thru that ever again..What are nokia doing even then86 which i am getting has low RAM because it insists on installing stuff on tiny c-drive on fone,,why cant it go to mass memory???
Lik ok i was at skool and 1 of my best friend brings his mothers phone to skool and it was the n97. So like in class i was waiting for the period to finish and i asked him wat the time was and he pulled out his phone and he slided the phone open and a message was on the screen and it sayed
"Unable to connect to any network service,"
??I dont get that??
i really didnt care much about that so i like asked to use it a little bit cause lik i wanna know what it is lik, u know an upfrount use of it,
So i went into the menu cause i'm a smart dude,
It the just SHUT DOWN in my face,
i asked wat happened and he sayed that always happens.
That sounds really bad and i am not really sure of getting a phone that always crashes down.
I'm lik nokia's no.1 fan
I lov nokia but this really brings it down.
Plz reply to (stevii man 5) if u have any info on this or any experience or any help of this and if it could be stopped, plz reply, i want this phone but i wanna know more about it if i should get it.

Yes the n97 does come with a T9 dictioary they call it active predicition.
Yes u can use it will the qwerty keyboard as well.
I still have no regrets getting the N97, No I do not care abt the speed, its ok for me, and so far working fine. Its been abt a week I think since I got it.
But I have 3 things that aren't the best.
1. The battery life, need to charge it everyday, but I can live with that not a problem.
2.The voice quality isn't the best, but Its still ok.
3. The only thing that is bothering me, whenever I text a lot or chat, my head hurts, my head does not hurt when I am using my toshiba laptop or when I am using my other phone n82 or even when I am playing my ps3 or my psp, then why does this happen while using N97, is the color to strong? Cheaper screen quality?
Does anyone have this answer?
