Ok, my first shock with Nokia N9.
I just installed Foursquare for Meego and restarted my Nokia. Now it's not booting and just showing black screen with Nokia Logo.. written "NOKIA".
I tried turning off and turning on again.... seems like it's "DEAD" and need NOKIA CARE to Fix it.
IRONIC!! I called Nokia Care Line and they guy with nice accent told me, "Sir, please remove your battery from N9 and put it again, and restart the phone.
Still unable to figure what to do Next!!
Have you tried keeping power button depressed for 8 seconds until 3 vibrations felt which is synonymous with removing battery if feasible?
Yes Buddy, I have tried all the possible ways and googling since I am stuck with it - no solution till now. Going to take it to Nokia Care Center tomorrow morning.
seems like I have found mates here..
Dead Device: Well, I just left it to Nokia, they said it requires high level repair and returned me today after 2 days telling that SW is updated. But another f ing problem has come, in Nokia Care it didn't detected my Sim, Nokia Care people used their sim and that worked, I bought a new replacement sim card and inserted and it worked for few hours. Now phone says... No Sim Card. I have 5 holidays ahead and everything is closed here in middle east. You can imagine my anger!! I am actually **bleep** off and thinking to sue them on the first working day next week if they are not returning my money or replacing the device. Consumer courts here are pretty good.
Flashier is not an easy part for people like me, I tried doing it but since the actual N9 flasher is not availble, I couldn't do it. Other methods are bit tricky for me.
Vibration/Battery LED issue:
Yes, this problem is with me, If i press my botton for 8s, it doesn't vibrate 3 times but turns off. Another issue you may have noticed, the charging light doesn't blink and doesn't lit up after fully charge, I have to check it throught settings if my battery is charged.
What bother me a lot, I bought 64GB Black Version on the first day of release by paying CASH, even they were not accepting the credit card... i choosed it over Glaxy, iPhone etc. but extremely disappointed.
Nokia shouldn't have released a device which is faulty, or at least fixed it for us. The people who used to come and see my N9, now come to laugh at me!!!
Probalby you are right but disappointment comes with every new faulty device, regardless how much I was previously happy with Nokia.
I miss my N8 which I had gifted to my younger brother... earlier I had iPhone which I gifted to someone else too. After N8, I was extremely impressed with Nokia and became loyal customer and yes, I was thinking to buy Lumia 800 too.
Just got my N9 back... looks like refurbished with huge scratches on sim jacket!!
They have changed the whole inside stuff of the mobile and kept the body same... IMEI number is different now.
I WILL NEVER EVER BUY A MOBILE ON THE FIRST DAY OF RELEASE FROM NOKIA!!
it is out side of the jacket at the lower edge if phone face you, I tried getting the photos but couldn't camera blurs when the object is very near and if I took it far, the scratches are not visible.
Yes, I believe Nokia may have strictly instructed the factory people to take utmost care of the body, but even though I got these scratches, fortunately hidden due to cover.
I requested the Nokia Care people to change the jacket with another one, they said it will take again 3 days to replace the jacket since it has to be sent back to main Nokia Care.
Another issue which I am facing now is warranty - it comes with 24 months warranty but Nokia Care record shows 15 months. I have contacted Nokia warranty and those stupid people asked me which store I bought and they lady was not aware of any Nokia Store in my area and kept asking for shop name...and later said, please scan your receipt and send it to us for proper warranty claim, which I will do now. HEADACHE!!
Anyway, I love the phone and live with it, and will buy Lumia 800 once the prices are stable.
