Jivara, everyone encounter the same problem you have... btw, the battery sucks & the phone hang pretty often!!!
It is not good phone I thought also before buying it but with in 15 day after I bought it the silver paint on the sides start removing
Hang yourselves... I love this phone.. Gr8 Looks.. I am not a serious user of vide.. Still i enjoy those zooms and close up shots.. Finally a manly Flip on Black.. Guys.. Dont listen to these critics.. All are nuts, expecting more than a mobile from a mobile!!
Im a guy who charges his phone everynight anyway..i dont ever use my phone as a camera...The simplified sympian is awesum....mine hasnt lagged.....i only use the phone to call n recieve calls coz txting is annoyng.....this must be one of the most classiest phones released..... even the 8800's dont come close in terms of looks and practicallity....so all u critics who dont really do their research b4 purchasing a new handset and seein if its suitable for u or not....u r truly among the smartest ppl.
It's such a bad phone......shame on you Nokia! The build quality is garbadge!!!
i had this phone since 2 weeks ago, it's good but not as much as that i thught!!!
Do you know that we can use internet since our mobile connect to pc and use internet?
am using this N76...its so cool man...by the way..where can i find the software which perfectly compatible with this N76 model???
Look is quite nice in black.
Plastic used is of low quality. Peel off problem is also a sign of low quality material & insufficent development testing.
Battery life terrible.
This phone is kind of big.
Clamshell not user friendly & is not Nokia's specialty(Motorola still make the best clamshell phones).
...But, Nokia does produce the best slider phone represented by the top lin 8600 LUNA(The slider so smooth & the phone so solidly well made)
1.Its a great phone when it comes to functionality as well as looks.
2.the 2MP camera is great if you redefine the settings for picture taking and whoa you'll get a good responsive camera.
3.The clamshell screen is good too & u can use the camera through it even without opening the clamshell.
4.Its is pretty light for a smartfone with Symbian OS 9.2 with zero lagging issues.
5.I have used many clamshell phones by motorola, and sony but none can beat n76 in functionality and looks.
**Battery life for n76 is best as compared to the other clamshell phones by other companies
6.Its a steal for its price.
7. 9/10 is what i'll rate it :)
**Only flaw is that the metal coating near the keypad may peel off after frequent use, but it is under warranty by nokia and you can get the handset replaced for any hardware issues.
Return phone and get another one just like it and the paint will peel off as well. They haven't fixed the problem. Nice looking accessory or paperweight but not practical or even functional. They might have claimed to fix the hanging problem with software updates, but doubtful. It's too much technology crammed into a small area.
The Peeling problem on the silver is in Warranty! All of you with peeling problems take them back and ask for replacement... free of charge!
Can someone PLEASE tell me how to get the bloody radio from starting on my N76 phone and how to get the damn thing off once it's on the outer screen? It's doing my head in... HELP!!!
i just got this phone with vodafone a little under a week ago and i have to say it is a very nice phone
as for comments on the pictures having a green tinge, this is quite normal for photos taken at night, my mate has the N80 and thats how his photos have always looked
i new before i bought this phone that the camera and battery life werent that great, but if any1 who is whinging about this didnt read an article about the phone before u got it, u truly are the only ones to blame
i find if u use the music player allot and text at the same time u will burn up the battery, but being an N series most have to be charged every second night anyway with its features being so battery hungry.
its true though, its hard to hear people when using this phone, its not so bad when u are in a place where there is moderate noise but when u go out i do have troubles hearing, i have to try really hard to understand the other person
overall i do like the phone, i jsut wish it wasnt awkward to talk on and the sound in covnos was better, but otherwise i would highly recommend it
it is very good in all except the silver paint around the numbers pads gone , and i could not find a spare part in any Nokia shops
this mobile is with me for only one month and the said silver plate has gone.
Absolutely NO problems with my new N76. I've had it for over 1 month now.
The silver started to peel off but when I took it to Nokia Service Center, they gladly replaced it under warranty with a new one which doesn't peel off.
Minor problem which was fixed/replaced with no hassle.
Mine doesn't hang but I was told by Nokia Service that if ever I do experience this, to simply bring it in for a FREE software upgrade which is also under warranty.
So I wonder what the big hoopla is here????.
If your unit has a problem then just bring it in for service!!!
Its a beautiful phone! :)
Vodafone UK have withdrawn ALL N76's due to a high returns rate, high levels of software faults have prompted this, we all know that with nokia this is a common grey area, so why this handset?? the N95 had so many faults... as did the N73... My guess is that the UK market doesnt really like Clam style phones anymore... With the others (N95 & N73) they returned them but wanted the same ones back. But this was not the case with the N76 nearly all of our customers wanted a different phone... The N76 was nokias real failure for our market and lets face it... it is a little on the large side as well!
GOOD NEWS !!!
If you are experiencing any hanging or re-starting problems with your N76
Are experiencing the silver coating peeling off your N76
....This is covered by Nokia Waranty.
Just take your N76 to any Nokia Service Centers worldwide with proof or purchase or warranty card.
I got the n76 for a month now and i have to say that i'm impressed :) i'm a nokia user but I had major freezing problems and very low battery life so i had to switch.. I got this phone as gift and i have to admit no more freezing but the battery life is still a problem.. i guess if you try to keep it on meeting and turn off the vibrate mode it would help the battery last longer thats all you can do.. but overall its one of the best n series phones :) but the camera doesn't measure up to the 2 mp standards
