> In reply to Carol @ 2014-07-24 22:25 from J5Cm - click to readThanks Carol for taking your time to reply to my query.
I think flashing the belle refresh with Phoneix would make my N8 out of box condition, like you said. So this is the way. I've got a BL-4D battery without the Nokia hologram and I doubt its originality but I will try it.
1. By the way, do you have the Colorizit app preinstalled?

2. When my N8 is connected to PC via USB, touching the metal frame around the display, results in getting a little electric shock. Anyone got shocked?

Why aren't they going when you do a factory rese? This is a tricky question, symbian has a funny way to remember some apps and data and some others not. So to explain better: If you flash official belle update with phoenix there will be installed everything in your device. From wallpapers to all factory apps that comes bundled. However, if you unistall them and delete the default wallpapers, you most probabli won,t get them back when doing a factory reset. While keeping them, a factory reset can take it to the out of the box condition. And that is why you have all black wallpapers. Cause you have no wallpapers saved. As for the battery...3 hours of browsing with an 4 years old device is good:). You can try buying a new one but keep in mind that: Liion batteries degrade even while not in use. So if Nokia would still manufacture batteries for n8 (thing that i doubt) you can get some more life out of your device. If not, even if there are new ones selling on-line you can risk to buy one that will not help you much. Though, could be better then yours, but not good enough. Still, if you find a new cheap one, why not?

Hi.
1. My Nokia N8 has ColorizIt and Shazam app pre installed and even after deleting data and restoring in factory settings option, those apps don't uninstall, however a delete option pops up when pressed and held on any of these two apps. Are these two apps system applications?

2. Also, my Nokia N8 doesn't have any default wallpapers. When performed a ''delete data and restore'' in factory settings and once it is done and the phone boots up, all the homescreen have a blank wallpaper (Totally black wallpaper). Do anyone face this issue?
3. My battery is barely lasting for 3 hours on a continous internet browsing. Think it's time to change the battery?

I bought nokia n8 since June 2013 (secondhand one) , so its batterry is not strongh enough for browsing internet but for calling and listening is very good as it has active noice cancellation function. .
what's i still like the most is its 12 mega pixels camera that always brings me nice & beautifull pictures.
phone has Li - Ion battery so its charging time is not long ( better than Li - Po battery) , the problem is : its battery is non- removeable .
i still use nokia n8 everyday as my primary phone (because many people use at least two phones nowadays
some has more. .). it is solid build.
i dont use internet with this device : first because of my old battery and second : it does not support my
language too.
