I have the same problem on mine. GPS worked fine on my previous N95, but since I replaced the handset I can't get a lock at all. Yours sounds slightly different though, as mine does seem to find...

I agree...

bartmanekul - that would be a very useful service. Possibly one way you could 'insure' is to take credit card details? I don't know much about it but isn't that what they do with car rentals? So if...

It's not so much that the menus are hard to understand, more that they're badly organised. One example off the top of my head - Wifi options are in 3 different places - WLAN...

Ah, the copy paste argument ;)

Just kidding, I know exactly what you mean. The customisability of the N95 (and all Symbians) is their best feature. You can change virtually everything on the...
