Nokia N91: The End

HI Everyone,

Well Ive made my choice Ive decide to move on from the Nokia N91.

And with that means no longer keeping this blog going.

In retrospect, this blog was simply an experiment mostly for me to see how many users out there were so interested in this phone who would bother to use this blog.
The Answer was very surpriseing,

Stats:

Over 64,000 hits since this site was started.
Best Day Ever: 605 views
Average View /Day 303 views

Posts total : 107
Comments :444
10 Sites linking to this Blog directly.

So its been interesting for Me, i never thought that id get such numbers when I first started.

The main reason I’m moving on to a new phone is mostly this ,
Size, As great as the phone is , the 4GB, the radio etc…etc…..etc….
the weight and size of the phone always bothered me a little so Ive decided to lay it to rest and move on with the Samsung D900.

I would like to thank all you for your support , comments on this site as in the end without you the reader this blog would not have had the numbers it has achieved today.

I will no longer post on this blog but for those that need the information ill leave it here to sit for a few months and in the end remove it.

Many thanks to all of you.

Nokia N91 Firmware update V2.10.013

Hi ,

Im sure most of you know this by now but a new software version has been released bring it to V 2.10.013 now.

I havnt seen much improvement yet but given time if i see anything worth while ill let you know right here.

Currently I’m wondering why Nokia doesnt release a list of the bug fixes and improvements with each new firmware that is released, would make it more easy to see the improvements.

If you find improvements over your old version of the Firmware then be sure to post here for others to see and support.

Nokia N91: Black & 8GB to go please!

N91 7gb

HI All!

Well i guess I couldnt stand by and not post about the news of the updated Nokia N91.
So what do we know so far???

Well first what Nokia Has to say….

“Music for the masses. Take control of your tunes with 8GB of pure high-quality stereo. Snap superior images with the 2 megapixel camera and enjoy a rich mobile internet experience. The Nokia N91 8GB with MP3 player capability is your new musical companion.”

Ok So what or how is it diffrent from the 4gb model??

Well not much really, what we do know is ….
It will be Black, have 8gb HDD and thats about it. NO support for Wireless Bluetooth stereo headsets have been added yet , but we always have the firmware updates!

I for one are not to pushed about this news , i dont use all of my 4gb as it is so having an extra 4 gb to play with is not that important to me really .
The phone coming inBlack is good ,and Id love if mine came in Black as well but i can live with it.

But there is more to this then a new Model of our fav Nokia phone,

If there is a new Model then it should mean that support for the phone should also improve as well, after all why release a new phone with these specs to take on the IPOD if you dont have the support behind it?? We have already seen it with the release of DIY Firmware updates on the web , so its reasonable to assume that Nokia is takeing it all very serious.

For those that are interested here is the link to Nokia N91 8gb product page its self

Nokia N91: “Hard Drive Unavailable” Possible fix

HI,

I recently had an email from Abhishek, who was receving this error message on his phone.

“Hard Drive Unavailable”

It didnt appear in the phone when He tried to access it  and this all started when he reformatted his phone.

The trick to fixing it as he had discovered was indeed simple.

*#7370#  this is a reset of the phone its self  and did the trick in this case.

Something i thought might help some folks out there.

Nokia N91: FOTA – Firmware update for N91 How to

Hi,

Jason ( AKA Death) sent me an email asking if I could post up the steps involved in performing the update to the Nokia N91.

So Jason i have simply reposted your comment.

As im sure Jason will agree , dont do this untill you backup your contacts and data on your phone FIRST!

Steps:
1. Go to http://www.nokia.co.uk/nokia/0,1522,,00.html?orig=/softwareupdate


2. Click on any PC updateable phone, I chose N70
3. Keep clicking NEXT until you are told to download the PC Nokia Firmware Update program
4. Download and install the program
5. Open it and connect your power cable and USB to the phone. Put it on PC Suite
6. Click Next and agree to the terms which are that all phone settings ect. will be erased. Everything thats on the Hard Drive will stay.
7. Click next and it will download the firmware package. It might take a while. I have 1.5 MB connection and it took about 10 mins to download
8. It will automatically Start installing the firmware. IT IS TOO LATE TO DO ANYTHING AT THIS POINT. do NOT disconnect to anything of that sort.
9. Watch your phone go on and off. Dont panic, it will come back on. It will say “Nokia N91 Test mode” and then you’re done. The phone will turn off.
10. Turn it on and re-do your settings and enjoy your new awsome phone, Lets see if it truly rocks as claimed eh?

Thanks Jason,

MacBuckley
