I never used Whatsapp but I've seen apps called "Close Whatsapp" and "Whatsapp Scheduler" which turns it on/off at specific times of the day. Personally I hate that type of applications (always running, always connected to the internet) where the user doesn't have any control. Problem solved, then. :-)

Finally my N8's screen turns off automatically again. I found out whatsapp kept on running continuously and that caused problems, while I don't even use whatsapp on this phone.
So I deleted the app, and now the phone's screen does turn off from itself again.

Quick Office v7.1.18 - Eng Only+ License+ E/F Mod - Symbian S60v5 S^3 Anna Belle signed

Or look for this:

Quick Office 7.01(18)

It should be modded so you can install it on E or F and free some space on C.

The screen on my N8 doesn't turn off automatically anymore. It doesn't matter if I set the screen lock-time differently, it just doesn't turn off anymore, except if I use the lock switch. Anybody facing the same issue? Or what to do about it?

One of the best phone, if one talks about the durability, design, camera, voice and many more. NOKIA why don't u put the android in this. I used to have this phone, really loved this phone, but the software made me to change this phone.
Try to come up with upgraded andriod version, and if possible now with more speed (CPU, RAM) and last but not the least, big screen as well.
I hope that u will grow u sales by TONS!!!! Still ppl want to see NOKIA grow with such great phones like N8...........

Can't find decent nokia n8/ nokia n8 sellers (lmao). Tried looking at androids. The ones I can afford have measly internal memories and with Google's idiotic SD card restrictions with KITKAT version of their MODERN OS,I'm not looking forward to rooting just so I can install apps. On the memory card. Pfffft. Link2sd my behind.


What a dilemma.

Will sit out till next year.

Or just get abandoned kitkat devices if I can't help myself.



Haha. Abandoned KITKAT devices. Expensive devices at launch. I'm looking at you, SONY. Booohoooo.

> In reply to MdN8 @ 2014-12-16 01:52 from B}QL - click to readThe level of software configurability in Windows Phone leaves you no doubt - it is assumed you are too stupid to use a system with any advanced features so all these had been removed. They didn't stop on system options, they even removed some of the key software! Lumia 510 (I know it is not exactly in the same class of phones but is much newer) fresh out of the box - it obviously has bluetooth but you can't use it to eg. send contacts from your old phone as it has no Bluetooth software (nor SD cards slot).. I believe N8 was one of Nokias top achievements in their multitask phones lineup as it has everything it should have plus a lot more rare features like FM transmitter, HDMI Out, USB In and more. I personally loved N900 as well but it wasnt really handy in some situations. N8 for a change performs brilliant everywhere I take it. It required some mods done to the software to enable installation of custom applications but its done easily and gives you access to hundreds of Symbian applications available to download all over internet. Battery savers for example are one of these handy tools that effectively gives you extra day or two to current battery lifetime. I'm an old Symbian user and every time some cool 'new' app came out for Android you could always find something similar for Symbian (except for games but I play Sudoku-like stuff so can't say). N8 is my perfect phone, does everything current smartphones do (it also does what they stopped doing), looks nice, lasts longer, is reasonably durable and has a proper good camera. Lumia 510-likes compared to N8 being 4 years old still look as useful as 3510i (great phone though, in its times).
