So who actually has one?

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.

N97 Worth it? or Not?

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!!

Build quality issues. Anybody else have this?

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 ...

Waited for new firmware and price drop

It pays to be patient..

Just got mine from Dell for $559 (after 20% off coupon) and loaded the new. No problems and I don't miss the iPhones I signed contracts for a week or so ago and sold for stupid money.

Something is happening?

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?

Did Nokia fix the reboot problem

My N95 reboots by itself every couple of days even after sending it to Nokia for software upgrade. Does anyone know if the 97 has this problem?

featured items

I bet when they were making the short synopsis of this phone that it took awhile to decide what should be a featured items. It seems a little short, but it could have been shorter.

"The N97 a GSm 3G phone from Nokia. Features items are everything."

Thats my summary :-)

Mine Is On The Way

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
