    had one for about 3 month and cant fault it! upgraded from N96 to this and happy i did.

    if your gonna get one, do it through carphone warehouse as all there handsets come unlocked and unbranded so no silly operator software installed!

    sat nav is ace if you use Ovi Maps Beta and not nokia maps (ovi is the new nokia version of apple store by the way) and battery isnt too bad TBH (i have music player running all day when at work on a weekend along with the internet for maybe 2-3 hour and still leave after a 12 hour shift on 1/2 if not more!)

    best option is to go have a play with one in a shop or if you know anyone who has one, and if you like it go for it

    Actually they have the CPW product code not the generic Nokia UK product code.

    had mine 2 months, love it. when the next software update comes out next month it'll cure just about all the problems anyone has with it. not that they are problems of course, just things you'd like it to do better.

    the camera's spot on for a 5mp cameraphone. if you use the auto settings you won't see the potential of the lense, but have a play and it's awesome for a phone.

    apps-wise, ok there's not as many as the iPhone, but then again who needs 8 million different apps. if the phone is any good it won't need many add-ons at all there are a fair number being released though if that's what floats your boat - just google "symbian S60 v5 apps" and see how many results you get .

    overall, you won't regret getting it. especially once they've updated again.
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    correct, but there unlocked and unbranded. same as a vanilla uk model or euro1.

    v12 is latest an v20 wont hit til early next year as a major update, the smaller firmware upgrades are just bug fixes where as the major ones (v1 to v2 etc) usually add apps and performance increases.

    you on all about symbian forum scott?

    V.20 is meant to be released in Oct, but given how long it's taking Nokia UK to release V.12 ... a release next year wouldn't surprise me. Seems .24 was changed to .26 in the V.12 firmware, wonder if .24 had problems? I know the French pulled it.

    I'm on several forums yea, I like to keep up to date with stuff.

    yeah, been tracking the updates too, im still v11 and no issue's so not gonna bother with v12 and just hang back for v20. instead.

    you had a look at n900 yet? and they released n97 mini too now!
