I couldn't agree more! I feel exactly the same way about mine (see the thread "N97 - Time to call it a day"). It's a real pleasure to use compared to the N97. As I've said before, for what I need and...

Yeah I noticed reception immediately but to be honest the N97 had the worst reception of any of my last 5 phones so it seems about on the same level. I couldn't agree more tho regarding finding...

Images only appear when they're in the /images folder in mass memory. It will scan any subdirectories within the images folder and include those images also.

I can take a screencap if you really want one but I can confirm my sim free UK spec N97 is running v11 fw. I did what many others have done and changed the product code to a euro one then updated.

Try PureWhite by pizero. It's a 3rd Ed theme but works fine on my N97. I also have PureBlack installed and we obviously think alike as I have a black N97. :)
