I thought N97 FW2.0 was supposed to free up phone memory!?

So how come since installing it, my available phone memory has gone DOWN from about 24MB to 15MB??

 

Jesus...

Many folks had problems once installing V2 FW, i had a minor blip and i did a *#7370# and was sorted. Just remember to do a backup.

Now i have C: 50MB & F: 29.5

It really is kinda crazy that people are not resetting their phones after a FW upgrade.  It is even more nuts that Nokia said you don't have to either.

 

CLEARLY - a Hard reset is making a World of difference for everyone who is doing it.

 

 I like the old N95 way - when you upgrade that come with a complimentary flashing.  That worked really well.  This new system is not delivering the expected results.  Shocked that the QA team missed this, unless of course they were not really using their phones in real world situations.

I love my purple screen, 1/2 day battery, sketchy touch screen and $800 price tag - I call it my Lumia 900

I'll try a hard reset. I'm hoping that it will fix my problems connecting to AccuWeather too, then!

 

To clarify, a hard reset will only clear the phone memory wont it? I don't want my mass storage formatted!!

The thing that really bugs me about restoring after a reset is that it dumps all your apps and games back in the root applications folder, even if you've set up custom folders and stuff. Always takes me ages to put everything back where it belongs!!

Thanks guys, that reset did the trick. For my phone memory at least. Still not got AccuWeather working, but I suppose I can always just look out the window.

Glad thats sorted but as for AccuWeather mine started script error not long after i installed v12 FW and even after v2.0 FW it still errors.

 

AccuWeather  i unistalled-installed etc etc etc and nothing so your not alone.

Formatting the Mass Memory before hard reset seems a good idea - I read a post somewhere here and it made good sense.

Maybe so, but loading over 20GB of music back on to it is a bit of a pain in the **bleep**...

 

There are a few other little niggles since updating. My Gravity client, which I set as a widget on the home screen has started using a slightly bigger font on the tweet updates on the homescreen. A minor niggle I know, but it makes it look ugly, and means you can read less of the tweet without opening the client itself. There are no settings to change this. It's odd.
