I have had this phone now for 2.5 months, but for 4 weeks I did not have access to it as it was being foxed by both Nokia and the ISP. When I did eventually get it back, the problems returned. I was told the problem might be data related and so had to do without much of my data (where is the antivirus). I gate it a chance and when I got it back, I charged it.
When it was fully charged I went my way, but this time I decided I will my spare phone and use this sparinglyb. Well, after 5 or so hours of standby time, the phone was dead. When I got home, I recharged it but after two hours it had not fully recharged. Went to sleep, and disconnected the phone from the charger. Well, 6 hours later at about 3am, the phone demanded to be charged again. When I picked it up to recharge it, it was simply hot (not warm), extremely so. Now, I am getting used to the phone burning up, and seems to get cold only when charging.
I have had enough. I lived without Nokia for 5 years and though I have the Navigator, no more Nokia Smartphones for me, ever.
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2009How can they equip the flagship model wit a 434mhz processor, and give E52, E55... a 600mhz.th... morewhy haven't they used the 600Mhz chip on the N97? they used it on lower end models like the E52 and the E55.. Im really scratching my head on this one....

Anonymous, 21 Sep 2009Thinking of getting this phone, just wondering if it has a slot for the cell phone accessories.What do you mean by "Slot for accessories"? Well it does have a 3.5mm pin for your earphones and a MicroUSB port for the charger and using the USB cable for connecting to a computer.
G.I., 21 Sep 2009Hi, im interested in buying this phone and i would like to aske you something since you alread... moreWell yeah, you've hit the nail on the head. When you receive a message, you only see "1 new message", you can't see who is it so you're actually forced to view the message to see the sender. Totally not cool but not a big deal to me.
My battery cover latch broke this morning is so annoying ,,i give up with this thing totally..
just got this phone last week its amazeing loads of cool features just like haveing a laptop

The Guy, 21 Sep 2009I see most current owners aren't really impressed with the N97 just as I am.

Anonymous, 17 Sep 2009does this phone work with skyp n yaho mesengerYou can use fring on this phone, go to www.fring.com for more info.
so do you think that the price of the n97 will drop when the n900 is released and if so what might be the price of the n97 afterwords?
I believe The Samsung i8000 Omnia II is the N97 strongest competitor. It might be better dan the N97 too. Don't yall think so?
It's a crying shame that Nokia still providing only a 5 Mega Pixel Camera. It's No different then N95 or N96 really! The competitors have taken over Nokia once again. The N95 was the king of the phones when it came out but now N97 is lagging behind in the dark ages compared to models from Apple, Samsung and Sony Erickson. Come on Nokia, please keep up with the race with this flagship model, your customers desires better.....................
I see most current owners aren't really impressed with the N97 just as I am. After having this phone for more than a week I find this phone great with the features that are on board! The phone has great multitasking capabilities and the web browser is really cool. 1 thing I found weird with the browser is that when I browsed on gsmarena.com where they talked about the new firmwares for the N97 and Omnia HD, the videos did not appear! I don't know what went wrong... Other than that I'll have to wait till next month when Nokia has release their new Firmware before I can decide what to do to my N97.
The phone has a nice design but horrible hardware and buggy software!! And the camera cover scratches the lens. Better wait for the X2 or the Satio which I heard are really awesome phones!! And the designs are awesome!
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2009as you probably all aware this phone sucks
n95, 5800, e71 are all better phones with no problemsReplying to the comment below:
i have the N95 actually and it "kind off sucks" to be honest. It is a good phone with a lot of features, but it's slow and can't really compare to the N97.
