Just to clarify, the N8 can do GPS without connecting to a network and just rely on satellites. However, it does take a long time for the N8 to get a fix on the satellites so utilizing Assisted GPS ( connecting to network ) gives you a faster fix.
The other great thing about Ovi maps is the ability to download full maps to the phone to be used in Offline mode before you set off on your journey.
All the best.
Dj, 20 May 2011What exactly does ROM do ? @Dj.
ROM stands for Read Only Memory, which stores the Symbian Operating System and other System files.
It can't be used by the user for storing any other data, unless of course you're into hacking and want to flash it with a custom firmware using Phoenix.
Two major Changes on symbian that are very bad.
1. You cant access some folders, no matter the file application u will use. With my late s60v2, i can access every folder using simple file app.
2. You have to sign apps before u install. You have to apply for your own certificate. Due to this whenever u format your phone, most apps on memory card cant be reinstalled. With my s60v2, i can install every app. U dont have to sign it.
You can by pass this changes if u hack your phone, but most nokia latest phones are not hackable.
Why did they make these changes? It is beneficial?

Are you also a noob? Why should I correct my knowledge when I got the right one. Can you review your comment before posting it here? Or do you understand what I just posted a while ago?
i bought mine N8 orange feb 2011its 3 mos nw, it works fine only purple tint on clock upper part during standby lock. I used SPB MOBILE SHELL, OPERA MOBILE VER 11 fast, zoom in & out, and I also downloaded pleNTY free apps Ovi store. I always read opinions here. Can u giv some oder apps and links, to make it more powerful & enjoyable to use. Tnx
I got N8 for about 6 months but it disappointed me very much. It disconnected automatically during the call. I have sent my N8 to Nokia service center to reload the software about 2 months ago, there is some improvement but the same old problem still exits. Apart from this problem, After photo shooting, I cannot exit the camera mode and I've no choice but just shut down the phone.
Is there any suggest to rectify these problems?
Please people I have nokia n8 but its not giving that stunning pictures somebody would expect from 12 megapixel camera. Any suggestions plzzz?
[deleted post]Mr. savage466! Actually your comments make me laught. Navigation is possible without network, GPS goes't need network for navigation,please correct your knowledge. Thanks
they could make faster CPU,but all else is great.this is the best symbian phone i ever used,with right set of apps u can download and install,it can do anything u want.hardware part,casing and touchscreen are also great.
Hey comparing this with the LG P500, specifically for the GPS: P500 can do GPS without the cell network at all. Can the N8 do this? Thanks.
My Nate recently went swimming with me. After it dried out it worked fine. This is one of the reasons I buy Nokia.
Hey guys read all the views kindly suggest should i go in for the N8 or the HTC desireZ
Also whats the difference between the Android OS, v2.2 (Froyo) and the Symbian^3 OS.
Would be obliged if you reverted.
help, 20 May 2011When I plug my N8 in my PC it connects it but when I want to put some videos or songs it stops... morenokia n8 nice phone i have it the problem is ths browser is not fast y i love nokia
Hi, it sounds like the N8 is either brilliant or problematic... My network provider doesnt offer an I-ph as an option, so its either a BB Torch or the N8 or N72, could anyone offer some advice on which to go with???? thanks
After installing various software overlays like SPB mobile shell (which is great) I still use the symbian UI 99% of the time. Sure S3 may not be the best OS around but there are things that kind of pull you to it. Dont allow the rest of the world to make you discontented with your N8. Judge from your own experience. Curious to see what Anna will bring
uninstall from control panel... and install the drivers from Nokia site. I think they are called nokia connectivity drivers... something along them lines
dude7, 20 May 2011Yes, I have that problem too!!!
I think that is the windows problem...
How to uninstall all ... more@dude7.
Below is a solution taken from Nokia support discussions official website.
1. Disconnect your phone from your computer.
2. Go to Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel.
3. Remove Nokia Connectivity Cable Driver
Remove Nokia Ovi Suite
Remove PC Connectivity Solution
4. Download and run Nokia PC Suite Cleaner from
6. Download latest version of OVI Suite from
7. Turn off you AntiVirus/Spyware and Firewall(Including Windows Firewall if enabled) software before you start the install of OVI Suite- very important!!
8. Reboot after installation of OVi Suite
9. Do not start OVI Suite yet after reboot!
10. Make sure your AV Software/firewall is not turned on.
11. Connect your phone using your USB cable.
12. The drivers should install without any problems. Takes a minute or so.
13. Start OVI Suite after Windows reports that the installation was successful.
Everything should work now.
The credit should go to Vesperillo if it helps anyone solve their USB / Ovi suite problems.
All the best.
