Need assistance with n97 classic.

Need assistance with n97 classic.

Hello. I recently got a used n97, and I am encountering a lot of problems with it...


first of all;

I tried updating the firmware to v30, but on nokia software updater it says that my v20 firmware is the latest.

then the speed. it's slow, and I encounter some wierd things like when on handy taskman, and I run vbag(which is a problem also, I can't configure it) I exited vbag already but the memory used still doesn't go back.

also on some games, like doodle jump and asphalt hd, there seems to be a problem with the sensor. In doodle jump (which is specifially made for n97 s60v5) when in portrait mode, the doodle swings violently to the right direction, but I am holding in a straight position, and when I tilt the n97 it doesnt seem to respond at all; when I go to portrait mode the motion sensors respond accurately, but when I am holding it in a still position it seems to move left automatically. same goes for asphalt hd. I'll try more games to see if the problems occur in other games.

when in music, I added almost 3000 songs (reduced kbps quality - around 2-3 mb each) When I refreshed my music library it took too long..


Is this normal, and do you also encounter the same/similar problems? I have tried resetting to factory settings, disabling the notifications on the menu screen, but in games its still a little slow.

I think Nokia made a mistake by just putting a 434mhz processor, they should have made it at least 600mhz, imo.


please help, if you can, thanks!


ps. I collect gadgets, I wanted an n96 and n97 since it was released but now is the only time I could afford them.I don't really use this as a phone, but I personalize them to the full extent.


sorry for my english, it's not my native language.


Thanks again!
