Temporary Fix for Nokia N97 (Firmware Upgrade)

After the launch of the flagship model N 97 by mobile giant Nokia. It is now facing some problems with its software. We all know that Nokia N 97 works on Symbian OS which is a new entrant in the touch screen phones market and has long way to travel.

Eventually, I also upgraded my phone to N 97 model and also facing the problem like:

  • Sluggish OS
  • Unresponsive Keys
  • No response while unlocking keypad ( back light illumination when unlocking lock-key).
  • User interface problem
  • Complete operating system (OS Symbian) Crash and many more.

After repeated attempts of repairing at my end by deleting songs, files and other things from the phone still, I was facing the above mentioned errors. But few days later, Nokia has released a firmware upgrade for Nokia N 97 with an attempt to fix the above mentioned errors. Again my luck has nothing good in it. It is still not available for Indian mobile handsets.

So called Nokia care, They gave me a remedy for the time being. They said to stop key lock software and change memory in use settings. You can find the details below

To disable key-lock software

  • From Main Menu
  • Go to “Applications”
  • After applications look for application named “key lock”
  • After entering key lock main menu click on options button.
  • In options look for status
  • And change the status to “disable”.

To change “memory in use” settings.

  • From Main Menu.
  • Go to messages.
  • Click on options and look for settings.
  • Under settings menu look for option named “other”.
  • After entering other menu look for “memory in use”.
  • And change that memory from phone memory to Mass memory.

After doing the above mentioned changes and re-booting the phone. I saw that the phone is slightly faster and more responsive than before and once the update is available for Indian users I will go for firmware upgrade (V11.0.021)

Note: It seems that in India service providers are yet to approve the new firmware once it is thru we will be able to download the latest software

Tip: In order to keep your mobile phone fast. Kill all applications which are not necessary. Nokia has a facility to show which applications are running on phone. It places a small round icon at the top of application present phone, It will go only if you close that application.
