[deleted post]It's a great phone. I really love it. BUT the battery life is rubbish and I had trouble finding a spare battery (in South Africa, so check your region). If you do get this phone, make sure you have a portable charger. I would charge my phone at night, make 1 or 2 phone calls, use facebook and twitter, and by 4pm the battery would be dead.
That said, even though I've killed my N97mini with water damage, I'm looking to buy the same phone again. I love it that much.

1. download the freesigner application. you can google it.
2. you need to get the certificate and key files. how to get it? you can google the keyword OPDA and you will find the site right away.
3. when you get those 3 files, now you can sign the free-isms application and install into your phone without anymore problem.
but if you are willing to pay some money (USD12 to be exact), you can get the latest version, iSMS v1.09 which has a lot more nice features compared to its predecessors including receiving MMS.
Hope it helps.

on the other topic, I've installed 3 apps into my mini namely, swype, nokia notifications and free-isms. These 3 apps combined are giving me new exciting experience dealing with messaging in nokia n97 mini. great apps.

looks really cool on landscape though on portrait it looks very small and narrow.
A downside of this application is i can only use the english language, it cant recognize my own language.
another downside is that it really doesnt suit well on a resistive touchscreen phone like on my n97 mini. it works great on my brother's X6 because of it's capacitive screen.
I use to have a sony ericsson k800i, after that a nokia 6210 navigater. I now have a n97mini which is the worst phone i ever had.
ice, 20 Sep 2010i already installed the swype settings, how do i activate/ use it? thankswhen typing a message or service command, normally when you press the screen, normal touch keyboard button appear. after swype is installed (and phone restarted) the touch qwerty keyboard will appear.
