I am having the same experience with my only one week old N97. It hangs after receiving a call and cant be switched off until it has to be rebooted- by removing and replacing the battery. I had a P1i. Does Nokia have any advice for sorting out this problem?

N97 is causing me big stress right now.

Trying to load music - succeeded first time when loading <4GB then deleted entire library from phone because i couldnt stop it using 1 particular album cover as a default for all albums with no artwork. My idea was to delete all traces of the 1 particular ubiquitous album cover from my laptop and try reuploading the original files, plus another 4GB of music. So far I havent been able to transfer any files. And it would seem that the more music I add to Nokia Music Player, the more it grinds to a holt. I deleted 2GB bringing back to approx 8GB and it started functioning again, albeit slowly.
Ive gone over my phone and laptop settings many times, trying new settings. Ive transfered the file storage location from My Music on my laptop, to my external hard drive. Ive copied a few files into that HD folder but they wont transfer to the phone either.

When I connect the phone to the usb port it acknowledges it but doesnt transfer any data. Ive tried changing the auto-transfer settings to no avail.

Also the phone wouldnt play (b4 I deleted all music from phone) a 16 bit WMA file I just bought, even though Nokia music player will play it.

Any ideas guys?

hi, i was having the same "connect to server " problems, its your internet settings what need changing, make your wap your no1 priority settings and then go to your real player settings and do the exact same there ( your mobile tv streams through real player ) and this should solve your problems.

Hi there, I just got an n97. Did you figure out how to download music from your laptop to the phone. It has been annoying me so much. Thought it would be relatively simple.
If you have found out how can you please let me know.

My NOKIA N97 keeps presenting me with a message stating that it has a 'Software Failure' and that the memory is full. When i go into the apps to check how much memory is left it says it has 29GB free. I have deleted all my music, all my pictures and all my messages. Also when i try and text someone the keypad automatically sets itself to type the symbols in blue with the letters and even after pressing the 'Sym' button and the 'Shift' button it STILL types only in symbols.
Fed up and going to exchange it if i cannot fix it.

Can anyone help?

to the guy wanting to transfer music from his laptop, you need to connect your phone to the laptop using mass memory mode. open up yourmusic file on the laptop use the send to option and send it to drive f which should be mass storage(or e on the phone). once the file is sent go into my computer and open up drive f ,you should see your file under all the other folder(like videos,music,maps etc) all you need to do now is drag and drop your folder into the music folder. it will now be on the phone.close all the applications and use the safely remove hardware icon on the bottom tool bar.(i asume your using vista).go into your music application on your phone and go into options look for the update library option go into that,once its updated you can ten use your music .enjoy hope this helps.

I have a number of problems with this phone, including the following:

a) The CD provided with the phone cannot be installed on my Mac computer (this might just be a problem in Australia though)

b) There seems to be no way, if just using the phone/computer cable, to transfer files onto the phone, presumably without the software from a). Sure, you can click and drag, say, a music file onto the phone, but firstly, there's no folder called 'music' on the phone, and it appears nowhere on the phone's music player, or in any other discernible location. The only way it can be done is through Bluetooth file transferring, which is obviously extremely slow and time-consuming.

c) Consequently, I have transferred only 49 songs onto the phone via blutooth, and now it says that the memory is full. At approximately 3 MB each song, that obviously doesn't equate to the advertised 32GB.

What am I doing wrong here??????

if its getting stuck on the nokia screen take the battery out and put it back in, before u turn it on put the charger in and wait for the little black charging symbol to come up.then turn it on and wait. mine did this too and it takes a while at first but then it fixed itself eventually. hope im not too late

make sure the sim card is inside the phone, take out the battery and put the battery back inside the phone, open the keyboard press these keys space, back delete, shift and power switch together and hold these keys for 30sec.give the phone time to reset, this should reset the phone, you will loose all your previous setting though.
