Angry V2x can't come soon enough

Just answered a call on my N97... after the call was finished I couldn't hang up. The screen still showed Answer --> and <-- Unlock.

After pressing the red end call button a few times I evetually went for the power button and got the white Nokia screen. Then it took 2 attempts at a restart to get the phone going again.

This is on v12 firmware. I haven't had this much trouble with basic functions on a phone since the early SonyEricsson P900.

(Sorry for the 'negativity' but I just had to vent my frustration)

Funny, v12 has been a lot better for me. Sure its not perfect, but its quite good. But I echo your thoughts, roll on version 20...

Mine was fine up until today. I can't remember the last time before this that a Nokia phone in my possession crashed during or after a call.

Let's hope it was just a one off.

Get back to polishing the scratches out of that lens... you can do mine when you're finished!

...and when you've done his, you can bring your lens polishing scratch removal kit round to my yard...

Its the screen lock that really doing my head, up until a few days ago, it fine, one slide down to lock and one slide down to unlock, hey presto - worked like magic. Well, actually, it only worked like it was supposed to.

And here was me reading about these poor souls having trouble with their lock key and thought, that can't be,mine works fine.

The last few days, the lock key is totally out of control. Stays up late, answers back, doesn't do it chores around the house etc.

Have to press it at least twice, sometimes three, and occasionally, even more just to unlock the phone. How the phone hasn't been chucked out of the window, is only a testament to my saintly character. Otherwise, it'd be a goner.

I want v20 to have a feature whereby the acceleration sensors will detect if you're shaking the phone vigorously and violently--and hang up the current call**.

This will be an improvement over having to remove the battery to end a call.

This is SOOOOOO embarrassing---phone was ringing in my pocket, when I pulled it out, I accidentally did the answer call slide (big mistake!) so when the call was over I had to remove the battery to hang up.

**it would be a good outlet for our aggression about having scratched lenses, frequent needs to reboot, GPS sync losses, too late turn-by-turn navigation, pixelated video zooms and no working e-book readers!

I still find the simple task of answering a call confusing.

I know how some of you are feeling now. Had to hard reset my phone a few days ago. Just got everything sorted on it now except I haven't got my MMS settings quite right yet. Fingers crossed it'll stay stable until v20 comes.

V2x is make or break for me. If it still isn't right then I will be looking at the N900, or even a different brand of phone all together. Symbian is really dead now IMO, its old and tired. My official upgrade is in March, so maybe something better will be on the horizon ...

Yes, I'm in the v2x is make or break camp as well. If it's not up to scratch after that, I'll get what I can for my N97 and move on. And it definitely won't be another Nokia (and especially one that has been recently released), once bitten, twice shy and all that.

Can consolidate and start a new section for your new phone Dave.

I DO like Nokias way of doing things though. I swore I would never move away from them again (had T68i and V3i before) every time I do I don't like the phone. It won't be Motorola, LG or Samsung though. So that really leaves Apple (hahahahahahahaha) SE or HTC.

Nokia PC Suite is probably the best phone manager software out there IMO.
