The Nokia N96 had a recent firmware update, hot on the heels of the N97, with the release of its version 30.033 (18-06-09) with this new firmware there was NOT a lot of noticeable new features, apart from the usual software fixes,
which should make your phone run a little faster, but one of the features caught my eye, the slide open & slide close function were you can replace the sound made, each time you slide open or close the phone it will make that sound…
To change the Sounds that the slide open and slide close makes.
Menu > Tools > Settings > General > Personalisation > Themes > Audio Themes > Phone Handling Events
in this section you will be presented with -> Open Slide & Close Slide;
select the sound files from the listings, and that’s you…
Here’s what im currently using, the Star War’s Lightsabre open and close sounds
If you need to find out how you can update your firmware, have a watch at the video below, this will outline the steps to take in order for you to Update Over the Air, this is using the built-in Wifi, or 3G connection to download, (one good thing is the progessive download -Ã‚Â you wont loose your place when it stops or looses connection)

While the good news is that the software update preserves your personal data and applications, you should always make a safety backup of your device content before updating the software. Please also connect your device to a charger during the update.
