i conclude that this is the worst phone i have ever had. it keeps reseting itself, and loosing its signal. i would recommend that no one should ever buy this phone. i was talking to a guy in a phone shop today and he told me that it had failed all the network tests for that network they would not be stocking it for the foreseeable future. i would strongly recommend that if you are thinking about getting this phone, don't.
i have had the N97 for about a month now. i had it in-replacement to my blackberry bold after 2 of them went wrong on me. i was told by my carrier that it would support push email. so i went ahead and got the phone. when i got the phone i rang my carrier to setup my email. i was given instructions to follow which did not work. i have had several conversations with my carrier and was told that i needed to download Mail for Exchange from Nokia. this application is not available for the n97. i rang my carrier again and was told that the N97 DOES NOT support Push Email.
eric d gadget freak, 22 Aug 2009i have a nokia n97 and an ipod touch 1st gen. from experience:
if you want to use finger sole... moreHi
I understand you have an experience with both N97 and iPhone 3G.
Have used iPhone 3Gs yet?
I'm having trouble deciding which to buy, iPhone 3Gs or N97.
Which one you like the most?
it's just too late for me to buy this phone 'cuz I already bought iPhone 3G...but if Nokia releases after couple of months a New Device like N97 it will definitelly be Mine, maybe N98 can be, and I hope it will have Capacitive screen and new OS Maemo 5, this new Os is just amazing like Android and more stylish..
I hope that for e next sumer nokia will release a new device same as N97 to be perfect and I'm sure that I will buy it...cuz with this Iphone 3G I even don't have bluetooth transfer, copy paste, landscape keyboard, rubbish camera, no Fm Radio, ...etc
Nice Job Nokia...
The N97 is an amazing phone, it just needs a little work, like installing a decent office app and file browser and finally transitions which make the n97 amazing.
One more thing about this mobile is the fact that it can store and display many pictures easily. i have 700 pictures on my phone and when using beta picture viewer from Nokia i can find any picture i want within seconds. and the same thing with music. one more thing is the number of touchscreen and fullscreen compatible games, i have about 30 games all touchscreen and fullscreen at the same time and all worth playing.
BTW all those people that are talking about glitches and bugs are wrong. i might have found 3 bugs in the phone with v10 before i updated to v12.
Bottom line the phone just needs some work the first day or two.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Is that the Carl Zeiss lens causing the horrible pictures?
After seeing the 5800 photos I'm sure that guy is nothing but a scammer who rips Nokia customers off with shoddy lenses.
Terrible quality, especially with the flash.
does N97 support fax......if not !! its non sense to find all these features without fax recieving option!!
