N97 Home Screen


What do you have on your home screen? Mine above has the usual clock, date and profile. Underneath this a batch of frequently used contacts (also known as favourites), originally I selected a really bad picture of each person for this, Donna’s is too bad to not censor out. The picture of Hannababe is the exception which proves the rule as I only had good ones of her. Grr.

App wise we have new message, browser, Google maps, Mobbler, contacts, BBC Iplayer, Gallery (which I don’t like), and Dabr.

Any recommendations?

I am currently working on sporting up the background A LOT!

Let me know.

    Instead of photos, use Nokia Photo Browser. It should be in the Ovi Store (free of course)

    Instead of one wallpaper, use a bunch. My N97 cycles thru 40 images.

    Widgets I use:
    calendar, shortcuts, shortcuts2, email, music player

    Hey Al,

    Playing with Photo Browser now, there is no menu system… ?

    I’m struggling to decide upon one background image, 40 would take weeks to decide upon :S

    Cheers pal 🙂

    Hey Colin is this a new phone upgrade?

    Just wondering what made you opt for a Nokia again? You may remember I had the N95. In terms of usability and hardware specs I find Nokia’s to be great, although they do have a tendency to break for no reason.

    When I upgrade I am hoping to go the iPhone route rather than for a Nokia this time. I usually opt for a phone with the best resolution camera (hence owning the N95) but this time I will be looking for a phone that allows me to browse the web, so I wondered what was in that influenced you to get the N97?

    Hey Luke,

    Yeah relatively new, around a month now.

    I am a Nokia addict, I understand how they work, why they work and what they can do. In the confort zone you could say…

    I did consider the Iphone, as one of my housemates has one, but it would be a little too faddy for me. The web browsing on the N97 is good! Would definitely recommend that you try it out instore before going to Iphone mate.

    The Nokia N97 is one of the best phones that i have ever owned. It is classy but feature packed. ‘
