Re: Why no updates for n95-3

Well with them rolling out the v20 n95-2 firmware this week I can pray that Nokia might grace us Americans with a firmware update. You know those of us who have shelled out $600+ for a phone you apparantly have no intention of supporting.

Re: Why no updates for n95-3

It is a disappointment of epic proportions how Nokia is treating its US S60 users. I love my N95, but I am so disappointed in Nokia's ability to give us the software updates we all could use.

I'm thinking of contacting the BBB and Nokia's corporate offices, because this has gotten out of hand.

Here's to hoping for updates when we deserve them. (At the same time as the rest of the world?)

Re: Why no updates for n95-3

I agree completely. I emailed the consumerist.com yesterday to let them know how we are getting shafted by Nokia. Hopefully they will put a post on consumerist.com to keep others from buying an unsupported phone and ending up in the same boat as us.

Re: Why no updates for n95-3

Yes.

There are updates for version 1 and 2.

I spent a lot of money for my N95-3 , and I didn´t receive any update for it from Nokia. For me it tastes bitter.

What are the results? Easy, a friend of mine asked me for a phone, and I suggest her to buy the I-Phone, because she won´t receive any support from Nokia in case she choses the N95.

Re: Why no updates for n95-3

Found some morebugs over the weekend when my sd card got full. Experienced weird behavior and one lockup when trying to switch from video mode to camera mode when my sd card was full and I picked internal memory when the phone prompted me. Have to maybe look into this further?

Re: Why no updates for n95-3

Do you think Nokia might be getting a clue about the fact that if you treat your consumers like **bleep** they will quit buying your products? You think that maybe this is the reason the number of handsets Nokia sold in the USA last quarter dropped 45% from the previous year, and this is the second straight quater they have lost market share in the US? Maybe Nokia just doesn't care and is giving up on this market, who knows? Nokia if you plan on staying around in the US market you might want to start thinking about treating us consumers in the USA on par with your consumers in Europe, mainly by giving us regular firmware updates like you release for your European targeted phones.

Re: Why no updates for n95-3

I sent an email to their board of directors complaining about the lack of updates. I included my address & phone number. Will be interesting to see if they send any response.

I think that this ia a joke. a software update is not related to a local representative.

There are not precedents of that behavoir to any Nokia model.

Pls, be responsible of this situation and solve it. That is all we want.

Sincerely yours

Suppouse that you have a Honda Accord and the brakes have a manufacturing problem. The solution is really easy. Honda recognize the situation , and they will solve the problem or replace the unit.

That´s the way.

Re: Why no updates for n95-3

Anyone else with an n95-3 should be careful not to fill up their built in flash memory. I was at a one of the kids ball games and taking pictures and my sd card got full, switched to internal memory when prompted and continued taking pictures. Filled up internal memory and from what it looked like I got a phone call with memory full. Phone locked up. Powered off and back one and was unable to get into call history anymore. Noticed the next day also that messaging would not open anymore either. Had to do a hard reset on my phone to get those two programs working again. Don't know if maybe files got corrupted since internal memory was full? Anyways n95-3 users be carefull about filling up internal flash memory since Nokia isn't going to try and fix any issues with our phones.

Re: Why no updates for n95-3

So, if I must change my N95-3, what are the options?

Is Nokia a trusted provider?

Re: Why no updates for n95-3

I think the problem here with NokiaUSA is that they dont follow whats happening with Nokia Europe/ASIA and the support they are providing to their users. Why cant NokiaUSA do the same and make their users feel more welcome to use Nokia Products???

Plus the N95-3 was released because of the WCDMA 850/1900 issue and the battery/ram problems in the N95-1, so i don't understand why nokia isnt updating the n95-3 when everyone is complaining about it?? afterall isnt it a user-driven economy now???

I understand that the N95-3 is a different device, thus the same updates from n95-1 wont apply for the N95-3, buts its obvious that they are adding/correcting features with the newer software updates if you go through their update news.

The recent features like flashlite 3, ASR, DVFS and demand-paging is missing! (correct me if im wrong) we payed the same amount for the N95-3 not knowing that there's going to be different/discriminated support! which i think is really unfair.

I just bought this yesterday and now im planning to sell this right away because im a power user like most of you and i want value for money!

Well, I'm from Argentina and I have an N95...
I've sent letters to both Nokia Argentina and Nokia USA about this subject and still no reply...
It's a shame no one from Nokia has ever paid us attention...
