Re: n97 Firmware 12 !

this is getting silly now. could do with the update to fix the messaging issue as i went to use it last night and in the process of setting it up it crashed and deleted the 2000+ messages I had on the handset with it, not impressed in the slightest

Re: n97 Firmware 12 !

v12 was the "placebo" firmware update...didn't really fix anything.  Just intended to pacify users until the real bug fix comes out.

 

v12 has many bugs still.

actually that is completely untrue, v12 brought a lot of stability and for the most part fixed the most annoying bugs like keylock and light stuff. so a jump from v10 to v12 is actually a significant jump in stability and improvement, fixed bugs and such. it does not get rid off all the bugs. geeez even firmwares as mature as v30.......have bugs in them. such is an evolution of the product. so if you have a chance to update at all please DO UPDATE YOUR PHONE WITH V 12

Re: n97 Firmware 12 !

Remember that the placebo effect is all in your mind....only having to work the slide unlock switch twice instead of three-to-five times is a major improvement!

 

Having to remove your battery to end a call because you used the swipe to answer instead of swipe to unlock first is a BUG.

Having GPS that lags 30 seconds or more behind your position or thinks you're doing 0 when you're doing 70 is a BUG. (or maybe its a DEFECT)

Having looping error messages caused by the homescreen widgets when you come out of Offline mode is a BUG.

Resetting your messaging store to C: drive when you do a Backup or USB operation is a BUG.

 

Nokia is losing a lot of long-time customers with this poorly designed (did I mention the slider/lens scratcher?) phone.  Do they really think that anyone will pre-order an N900 after this?

Re: n97 Firmware 12 !

i know what placebo effect is very well, my phone does not crash, widgets work great, keylock actually works like it should. so i am not sure what you are talking about but these things HAVE BEEN FIXED. perhaps you were under impression that it would do more than that. it fixed basic things, it was not a major update but it did the trick. if your phone is still behaving so badly after update and all recommended phone management then i suggest you either return it or take it to nokia care as this is not usual behavior. 

 

 

resetting your memory to e drive from c drvie afte you have connected your phone in MASS MEMORY mode is NOT a bug it is a normal phone behavior for any s60 phone.

Re: n97 Firmware 12 !

I agree that v12 brought some stability issues to the phone & better RAM utilization... I really expected more from it. However, I'm still waiting for the v20 firmware to see the difference.. But honestly I do not expect much.. the phone needs a lot of fixation & development.. The only good news is that firmware updates are released faster than before, although they're surprisingly late for some countries like UK maybe due to operators agreements & so on..
