Ouch. Nokia’s not doing so
great with its new flagship
Lumia 800, even with a £20m
advertising budget. According to the
FT , the Lumia 800 didn’t even break
into the top ten phones sold in the
UK, and barely sold more than its
basic “Touch and Type ” phones —
those feature-class phones with a
touchscreen and numeric keypad.
I know the Lumia 800 was only Nokia’s
first attempt at a Windows Phone, and
that it has to rebuild brand
momentum; but it hasn’t exactly
turned into the company’s saviour
they hoped for, if it’s not even selling
enough to break into the top ten on
launch. For what it’s worth, it’s not a
bad little phone ; it just doesn’t cut
the mustard against some stiff
competition from the likes of the
iPhone 4S, Galaxy S II, Galaxy Nexus
and the plethora of other Android
Are you able to send SMS when 3g is on?
When sending SMS to multiple contacts does it go as an mms instead of SMS?
Flints, 08 Mar 2012Please guys, how can one use a synchronized music from the PC as a ringing tone instead of the... morehi you can't you the music on your phone directly as a ring tone... however you follow the steps listed on this page
if that doesn't help or sounds too tedious just download the free ringtone apps from the marketplace... they have plenty of options... hope this helps...
This phone looks great, but the spec is very worst under the hood, old amoled, no front camera, poor ram, poor battery live, too many restriction, lack of app, over priced. With that price I can buy quad core phone with SUPER AMOLED+ screnn & HD screen, also a bigger ram. My phone, my rules, my way.
Standard battery, Li-Ion 1450 mAh (BV-5JW)
Stand-by: Up to 265 h (2G) / Up to 335 h (3G)
Talk time: Up to 13 h (2G) / Up to 9 h 30 min (3G)
Music play: Up to 55 h
Would just like to say something regarding those "specifications" listed here, and that is that: they are total bulls*it!½. Every single time i charge my lumia 800 phone to full battery capacity, it will only last something like 17 hours.
Which is totally so bloody far away from those "numbers" listed above >:G
(and yes, i got latest updates on it)

Zizou, 08 Mar 2012Hi guys.. Would you suggest me which one to go.. Lumia 800 and n9 , m confused.. i wana watch ... moreForget the N9, the reality is that it's on a dead-end road. Go for the Lumia 800, or wait for the Lumia 900 with bigger screen. Windows is the future, and 7.5 is a great OS, been using it for a month now. I still have the N8 with upgraded Belle OS as the second phone. The more I use WP, the more I find Symbian slow and sluggish. Symbian used to be great, a few things still better than WP, but after using WP for a month, I can say WP beats Symbian as overall package.
dose this phone get the windows 8 update. i wanna buy it cus so beautiful and worth but i wanna know Microsoft gonna let this mobile have the windows 8 or no ? please answer fast
This is the worst Phonei have ever had. I have always been a huge fan of Nokia phones but this is just terrible. My main problems is the battery life. Constantly having to charge the phone. If battery dies it takes super human effort to re charge and then turn back on. Phone screen goes blank when making calls so can't hang up. Wish I hadn't been upside by phone shop. Very unhappy user
does anybody know how to get 3x4 numeric texting keyboard on this phone, i can only find 3 x 4 chinese keyboard
Hi guys.. Would you suggest me which one to go.. Lumia 800 and n9 , m confused.. i wana watch movie on the phone widout minimising the size of the movie
Hi Guys, how is it possible to use one of the synchronized music from the PC as one's ringing tone and message tone? Thanks
Lumia got good design aa well as best hardware, but nokia still cant provide us big screen and something new like new hardware feature.
I am using galaxy note (pocket tablet) it got big screen as well as very new hardware feature like barometer. .also serve as tablet (creative idea).
Nokia should be little bit more creative.
Please guys, how can one use a synchronized music from the PC as a ringing tone instead of the Nokia Tone? Thanks!!!
For the most, I am shocked! The PC synchronisation for contacts, tasks and calendar has been removed! Yes! You must now sync in the cloud via Google Mail or Windows live!
Whats more, no more modem! Bluetooth or USB!
This is devestating. I move away...
