By the way, you could use RoadSync as an ActiveSync client for push email. It's supported on the N95 - but it does cost $50.00!

How are people finding the N95 now that you've had it a few weeks?


Honestly, not as good as i got it. The phone seems to be getting worse, its odd:

GPS locks are taking much longer to lock.
The camera has got worse every day since i got it (latest picture: http://www.gladdy.co.uk/pink2.jpg)
Various bugs are really annoying: The 'cancelling a connection attempt crashes the phone' bug, and the 'gallary web settings (flickr/vox) are buggy' bugs are annoying.

I'm gunna go to t-mobile tomorrow and ask them to replace it, its 3 weeks old, so they might fob me off to nokia, i'm hoping not... Still, its a really good phone, bugs are just getting me down.

It's a fabulous phone. Camera is great, and I haven't experienced any serious bugs at all.

Highly recommended!

siksik6, are you on T-Mobile? I'm wondering if RazorD's problems are in any way to do with the T-Mobile firmware.

I'm on Tmobile yeah. With a phone like the N95, you really need unlimited data, it's pretty much essential to make the most of it.

For those debating whether to go with Orange or T-Mobile, don't forget the N95 is severely crippled on Orange - Vodafone too for that matter.

For one large thing (for some) straight away, kiss bye bye straight away to VOIP.

See the el reg article for more info, and click the video link on that page, to see the difference between a none crippled phone, and the crippled one.

Reg article:

Bear in mind that I am ASSUMING the firmware is complete and not crippled on T-Mobile, but as I don't have one, someone else will have to confirm if it has the Internet Telephony settings in the menu on a T-Mobile handset. It is believed to have though.

I'm very Glad I read that, as I have now gone with T Mobile. Good riddance to Orange. So the guy in the T Mobile Shop gave me Flext 35 with Web N Walk and a free N95 ;) So with insurance I think it's £46.50 a month

Only too pleased to be able to help, as I UTTERLY detest operators who severely alter or amend the firmware. A little customisation in terms of branding, that's understandable and fair enough...

But this kind of thing... nah, that's just not cricket in my opinion!
