Just wanted to see how many people actually have one of these now. I ordered mine from Amazon and they told me I have to wait until the first week of July. This phone has stirred up a lot of people. I can't wait to finally get to use it.
I have a Nokia E90 right now. It is def the best phone I have ever had in my life. Its perfect for everything I need it for. For some reason though, I'm stuck on the N97. The only thing holding me back is that I hear it's having problems with the OS and it tends to freeze on the facebook app and stuff. any advice?? Should I stick with the E90? Or should I try out the N97? For that much money, I don't want a faulty phone. HELP!!
Just got mine in yesterday and have been playing around with it non stop, but it looks like it's going back for another one.
Hey, I just got my N97 in from Amazon. It's the NAM version, RM-507. I was very disappointed to see it has the made in China label, since my opinion of Chinese made products has never been a good one. Upon inspecting the phone, I happen to notice a few things.
1) The SIM card makes noise for some reason when I shake the phone, sounds like something is knocking around. The second I take the card out of the tray, and shake the phone, there is no noise at all. It's not loud, but you can definitely hear it.
2) The phone doesn't quite sit completely flat when the slide is closed. The side with the speakers on it ... (continues)
This just seems like a giant stale device from Nokia. They once had the most advanced smartphone platform in existence, and now I'd rank them 4th.. or even 5th. I mean c'mon, how does such a crappy UI even get green lit? They didn't even try.
I don't see too many people plunking down $700.00 for a device that gets burned by a $100.00 iPhone.
I've had the N97 for about a week and a half, and I think I'd agree with Eric's overall thoughts on it. After the first weekend, I REALLY liked it. I still do but my enthusiasm has been tempered a little bit.
I'm not quite as frustrated with some of the things that Eric is. For example, I have no problem with the touchscreen being resistive because it might be the best resistive touchscreen I've ever used. I'm also a little bit surprised with his complaints about the body. It's disappointing that the N-Series development team has not found a way to equal the products created by its E-Series counterparts but I can't go as far as to say that I think the N97 feels cheap (other than maybe the battery cover).
When checking my order at the Nokia website (3rd time today-yes I know I have a problem)where the phone and the blue tooth headset were listed as back ordered, this last time the headset was listed as "in progress." Does this mean good things are going to happen?
i have verizon at the moment and i was wondering if there is anyway i can egt this phone to work on their network? if not wat company can the phone work for because i also do like sprint. thanks for any information
why cant the cell phone manufacturer ever make a cool phone that runs on umts 1700 im mean really i would love to buy this phone if it rann on tmobiles 3 service i dont know how long i can wait for the touch pro 2 to hit tomible and this is killing me i would love to get ecited for this phone but i cant becasue i cant enjoy the phone.
Hi everyone, I have been wanting this phone since it was first talked about a long time ago but was going to settle for the blah- blah iphone. But to my surprise when I checked my e-mail on May 8th I read about a discount on the Nokia page saving $244.65. Wow,with a bluetooth headset included. Thank you Nokia. I have checked 3 times LOL with order support and my order did go through. Now with that being said, I have never bought an unlocked phone before and I am hoping that I can get it set up with all the stuff like voicemail, mms, and especially the web. Does anyone think this will be a problem with our friends at AT&T? Thank you in advance.
Also, order support told me that the ship date is about 2 weeks or maybe sooner
