All the N97 owners go onto Symbian-Freak an theres a good video about the Gprs on the N97 an how to sort the signal strength out,it unbeliavable how the maker repairs the signal an shows Nokia that they have not fitted the correct parts or something,an shows you how to fix the gprs problem
Had the white nam for about 2 weeks now.The pictures look amazing.Zooming the pics are crystal clear.I also have photo browser from beta labs and its cool with its magnifying glass and face zoom.
The video recording is fantastic because the screen res is very good, especially better then that ju*k iphone3gs. I have 2 forms of navigation.Garmin for free and nokia 3 months free voice guided nav.
My co workers who have the iphone 3g are in love with my N97 and its performance,especially since it doesnt overheat like their iphone 3g. Love the handwriting recognition and the ability to take notes while on a call without disturbing the other person.
I will be getting skype on my n97 soon and will be able to see the other person cause of the secondary camera,unlike the st*pid iphone 3gs.
Oh and the widgets are great as well.
I guess the iphones dont have widgets.Hmm.Too bad.
My battery lasts me the whole day with fm transmitting,wi fi ,phone calls and so on.
By 8:00 at night its only down a couple of bars.The iphone 3gs would be dead by 2:00pm.
My co worker cant even use his iphone 3g for his new internet business.He got a blackberry 8900 curve for 100 on an upgrade.He can run his whole business from the 8900,but not at all from his iphone3g.
well i had a n97 from lst 7 days...good specs but i am not satisfied according to price and its touch.. first off all its touch is not as good as i phone.. secondly same symbian OS problems as in early handsets...obviously same internet browsing experiance (browsing experiance is not smooth as iphone) like cant open big flash files..or cant watch movie online...on other hand iphone less camera pixels but good UI smooth to us.
AnoN, 12 Aug 2009Does anyone know of the Nokia N97C? A client came in to the store today with the N97C. If anyo... moreHahah. nokia n97 c is same shaped phone as n97 but its chinese and thats not made of nokia.. its fullname is n97c (c for chinese).. you can see here http://www.dualsimmobileshop.co.uk/n97c-black-qwerty-keyboard-analog-tv-p-111.html?zenid=bt945o34ljcageptoi7ip6e921
This cell is doomed, even after update to 11 screen lock botton need twice presses to onn,dito copy of 5800 software, when you peel the protector sharpness not as clear, even double click age old mouse concept on desk top present. Price above 600 $ obnoctious?
when phone mem on start up 40 mb even changing all apps on phone it goes down to 20 and cannot find in apps manager where there are. Whats the use of 32GB.
Nokia should now rename its products to CNOKIA Made in China may be only labelled rest chinese made, as other chinese cells are worth 100$ max with same features even E52 N98 models avail with wifi blutooth and 8GB cards avail, then why Finnish only known by the brand are fading away in chinese territory.
you feel the roughness in finish and african latin far eastern region available n market. God save CNOKIA
Nokia is ditching Symbian OS for Maemo and Winmo after all. So for those still planning to get the N97, you may want to do some hard thinking.
Nokia admitted that the symbian os is not good enough to keep up with Apple's OSX, RIM, Palm OS and Android. So there Nokia fanboys. Don't you wish you bought the iphone 3gs instead? Hahahahahaha.
Anyone wanting to buy this phone i would recommend agaist it this is my 2nd n97 i only got my last n97 yesterday or is it ment to be a phone a day, drains all your pay?

hanoi, 12 Aug 2009Hi all.please help me...
I just bought N97 in Vietnam.but there are few problem with message ... moreOf course those doesn't work in vietnam...unless you have a monthly data usage plan instead of the vietnamese phone card you pay to just call and receive calls/messages when you run out of minutes.
Vietnam doesn't offer the data/internet/gps package plans like those of Europe, America, and other developed countries....
I have had my N97 for 4 days now. On taking delivery of it it seemed like a gd handset. Buti feel v disapointed now. The handset seems to lock up my laptop when i connect the handset via USB, keep gettin message of 'Found New hardware, MTP Device'.
I have tried to find out how to adjust the volume of a track when using the Music player. I have tried to use the obvious volume key on the side of the handset, treid running my finger/thumb ova the screen but still can adjust it. I gonna return the handset back to Vodafone as they offer a 7 day returns policy. I am very very disapointed with the N97. I have had a N95 for 2+ yrs and it has been a gd handset to me.
