Dwane, 16 Oct 2010sorry to have to report this but despite the phone being really good and better than any other... moreI'm sorry to hear about that dwane. I suggest you return that immediately, if the same thing ever happen to me i might throw the thing out of the window. But luckily, as i've said, i don't pre-order.
And i suggest you update the firmware. I guess that's where the main problem lies. Now if nothing changed. Return it. Ask for refund.

Anonymous, 17 Oct 2010http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/t5/Nseries-and-S60-Smartphones/Nokia-N8-00-keeps-turning-o... moreThat's why i don't prefer pre-ordering. Before buying, i test the unit first, retail stores allow me to do everything that i can do with it, swipe this, swipe that, and if it hangs, or crash, or if it simply fails to impress... No deal!! I value my money.
It has something to do with luck i guess. Since, basing on the comments about nokia hanging, and crashing, i can only suspect they have poor quality control. Cause none of my previous nokias gave me any headaches. While my friend's nokia phone do sometimes. I wonder.

I'm in USA...I've had the N8 for a few days and tonight found out the headphones do not work....they sound like crap! It's not the music either, the videos pre-installed sound the same way. The buttons do not work on the phone either.
Tried to use ovi suite and the n8 kept locking up.
My stomach hurts....can't believe I paid 600 USD for this. I'm returning it for a full refund.
Sorry guys...not sure I can get an exchange. My N8 was made in China. I'm not dogging China, just stating a fact.
[deleted post]Hey I had that app on my 5800 ! For which I paid 3 times less to what Iphone costs
Anonymous, 17 Oct 2010one g8 thing: 8millions of iph4 sold and countingiphone4 is crap compared to even the old Nokia 6600, not to mention N95 8GB which bwnz it, and now N8 completely destroyed it... xD
N9 soon to murder Apple company.. lolly xD
[deleted post]it has radio!!!
mab u must search on the space to find a better mobile phone
Rams, 16 Oct 2010Og GSMArena! Has Nokia stopped paying you? You boasted N95 8GB was the best in the market evad... moreand yes Symbian^4 is on the way soon. N9 will soon release soon to as a phone with MeeGo OS on it.
I think that the WM7 Phone from Microsoft is just another Android kind of thing. It will be marketed like the iPhone and it will be priced expensive the same as iPhone aswell. But it will just be badged as a Microsoft.
Nokia is still the best.
Rams, 16 Oct 2010Og GSMArena! Has Nokia stopped paying you? You boasted N95 8GB was the best in the market evad... moreYou haven't mentioned that has Nokia has Maemo 5, That's in use in the N900.
Nokia also has development of the MeeGo OS.
Ovi Services are now excellent.
Has Apple, Samsung, Motorola got a phone as good as the N900? No they haven't
rahulNEWN8, 16 Oct 2010plzz...tell me the way to hard reset the phone to factory settings..... symbian3 sucks!!!!!... moreYou are not a N8 user. Why you are posting like this what you wanted to say to world. If you want a vireos grade you can get it from OVI store. I think you have haver use OVI store. If you don't like N8 why don't go for a any other phone. Are you jellies about N8 populerity.
Yes, people get paid to troll. Why would someone tell you not to buy this phone? Why? Because they love you so much and don't want you to make a mistake by buying a multimedia powerhouse? Or because you will not be able to buy 'insert brand/model here' for awhile after you spend the money on the N8 and that my hit market shares big time. A phone purchase is a 1-2 year commitment. And for crying out loud this phone has been talked to death already, it has its faults and yet someone(corporation) is still scared/intimidated by its popularity. So, trolls are sent to antagonize it by saying things like 'the camera is really bad' while every credible source had it reviewed and the camera is clearly not bad, its actually the best in the market ATM. They say the CPU is old, that it has low RAM bla bla bla I'm reading this for months now and guess what: WE KNOW ALL OF IT! This phone is my next purchase and nothing anybody says will ever change that. Also, being this popular you know the firmwares will keep coming and Nokia will replace the bad browser, improve battery life, introduce swype and even overclock the CPU if needed. My N82 got its v35 firmware Dec 2009, thats three years after release! But hey, I'm not trying to say this phone is the best...its not...It's just the best for me. (ps- to fight off trolls I'll just repost this now and then cuz it might get deleted ^_^)
