I got an n96 as an upgrade today from O2. I connect the charger to it and a message comes up saying "not charging" and it refuses to charge. i put in the battery out of my old N95 and got the same message. Used a different charger and still wouldnt charge and finally put the N96 battery into my n95 and it charged fine. Have i got a screwed phone or am i missing a trick?/

yeah



there goes your warranty then. change the product code back whilst you can and hope they don't notice when you return it.

i did think as much.

On another note - are u selling your n95?

How much you want when you get your N96 fixed?

Original Poster

You'll be lucky! Take it to the shop - they may be more helpful if you kick off and give you one from the shop. Jus tell em summat like ur goin on hol in next few days. Don't take no for an answer and they may swap it there and then for you!

Surely worth a go - at the end of the day they are both O2. You can upgrade in the shop if you bought online so.... who knows!

agreed, got rid of mine battery was lucky to last a day with any kind of decent use and too plasticy

would be ok if we could get dvbt like oz but we cant so

swapped mine for a sony x1 and i love it decent build quality easy to use blah blah
