> In reply to Carol @ 2012-12-16 21:29 from L7eM - click to readMy phone works perfectly before update. I'm not a techie. So I not tried Phoenix. All other(format,full firmware reinstall, sim change,etc)methods are tried. Currently I'm using another sim card from another service provider, it's working perfectly but not showing 3.5G sign. Now it crashed only 2 times in 3 days. I think it's a bug in firmware.

I use only the maps. Open it, i wait for it to find my position, as i've said earlier. Now i search the address i'm looking for. press on that address hit navigate, select: drive here or walk here. ANd that's it. I'm on my way:)

> In reply to Gthm @ 2012-12-17 12:40 from w49R - click to readHey, you have probably used a old phone that stored messages in your sim card. Now, i don't know if 808 interface is change to much, and presuming that it isn't, try this path to delete your simcard messages. Or to copy them into phone memory and delete them afterwords. So go: messaging/ options (the right button from the screen)/ View folders/ options(again)/ SIM messages. There should be messages that you would probably don't need, delete them all, or a part of them until there is no notification anymore. This can maybe be a contacts full notification, though i doubt...
there is no setting that need to be enabled. Be shore that you have Nokia suite installed and also the phone plug-ins installed for the charge to work. Also if don't whant to install nokia suite you can go to: Settings/connectivity/USB/... there will be 4 options to select as default action for USB connector. Mass storage/ Media transfer/ Nokia suite and use phone as a modem. Just select mass storage and plug the phone in your pc. Will be recognized as a usb storage device and will charge to.

Go to settings/default applications/Browsing internet (change to opera). Now press options/advanced options/scroll down and change Open application xhtml+xml, to opera/ open text html to opera to. That is all that you can do. There is no other solution, that i know, If this doesn't work...

my 808 has the same problem of not showing 3.5G, but it rarely crashes when on 3G network. i have asked other friends from another site and they said it's only the icon problem and in fact it's already running on 3.5G speed. but i still feel that something is still wrong and should be fixed but i dont know how.

i try to buy this phone, although a lot of issue that post here, i really don't know maybe the phone itself or the user, maybe they don't know how to upgrade the or install the software.

> In reply to sam want new @ 2012-12-16 15:35 from s8hw - click to readDid you format the phone before update? Did the phone work before update? You can also try to do reinstall your firmware with phoenix if you are a bit skilled. You can also try to take out and plug back in the sim card. You can also try a sim card with a big golden chip. If none of this work, take it back but tell them that you've tried to reinstall the firmware with no success.

Heee was a guy with the same problem and he could not fix it with firmwere reinstall. You can try to reinstall your firmware, after you format you phone. If it's not working, you can take it back.
