I just got my new N97 - white (!) today after having th eblack fo rthe last 4 weeks, It is great - beautiful. Only problem after I worked all day on loading it - now I saw a NEW firmware number 12 is available....
I guess will do it tomorrow morning, and report to you - from Isreal...
I hate to have to re install all Apps !
I wonder if the Boingo still included in the "C" and the phone still keep freezing on answering a call with the Sweep ?!
Well I downloaded the new firmware & this is my experience & outcome:
So great news to all of us. Yet, Myself & I believe most of you will be waiting for a firmware with more features like Skype, & others, but for now, this solves many of the problems....
One more thing.... No More wrong CAPS using my phone while writing this.... coz previously I was stuck with it no matter what I do... finally....
LOL prince, there was an easy fix for CAPS before, in the reply select edit as html and you would have gotten your regular letters back. i have to face it also on my itouch and i have not tried my phone on nokia boards yet after the update but if that is the case, then it is very good news indeed.
I installed the patch on my Nokia RM-505 without any problems yesterday but it was not OTA (I too am in Australia).
I noticed that the slider lock is working better and a long pull usually results in 1-click to unlock screen. I have more memory available. Taskman is reporting 36.6 with 7-apps open; I previously had about 28+ with the same thing. The phone is operating smoother and the browser is working so well that I'm now thinking of removing Opera mini from the home screen and replacing it with the Nokia Web Browser icon (BTW, Nokia web browser has never crashed while Opera has a number of times).
Anyone wanting to remove Boingo from their phone should go to Symbian-Guru.com and read about How To: Remove Boingo IAP From Your Nokia N97. Boingo has released a patch to remove it the the access point that has been installed.This was posted on 15 august and is in Tips and Tricks.
