Awful phone. Battery lasts half a day - less than that if you have a 1 hour call. The phone is too complicated for the memory to handle - this makes the page transition glitchy and time consuming. In the process of trying to get mine swapped for something else. Strongly advised you don't buy it!
To Orazio Rispo, you can go to this website and upgrade the firware. http://nokia.dogtoe.com/
does anyone know how to put a mpeg4 video on the n80 phone that is able to play or is there any converters to play mpeg4 on the phone? I can't seem to figure out how to put videos or movies on my phone. I heard it can be done.
PLEASE HELP. I live in new york and I own an n80. I bought it from plemix for a good price, and now im experiencing freezes, crashes, restarts, battery wont charge at times. My firnd has the same exact phone and he is experiencing the same thing. I called nokia US askin what to do they told me to call nokia uk, nokia uk wants like 40 pounds just to talk to me and i have to be a member of this club nokia thing that you cant join unless your from the uk. SO BASICALLY I CANT GET HELP FROM THEM. someone please help me out, i checked my firmware version and its like 5 months behind.
thanks for the update ben,,,My battery only took 30 minutes or so to charge which is why i thought it was a dud...ANYWAY this link below is to the new internet edition fone thats beeing launched but i cant understand because my n80 has all the sip function already built in etc but anyway its a smack in the face to us all to bring out a new edition after only a couple of months http://www.cellular-news.com/story/19104.php
anyone know yto setup wi-fi with home network? i just bought a new N80 ... ! can some 1 help pls? i take so long time to configure it.. ! but still cant to get connect to internet with home wi-fi !!
to raj,,,,,wi-fi should be backwards compatible with a& b types.....You have to plug in the headfones to allow the fm radio to work,,then go to settings to tune it in ,& because i only listen to 4 radio stations i manually tuned to exact station ...IF you are in uk only, O2 is just starting to roll out visual radio wich lets you interact with the staion to find out song playing or enter competitions etc !!....Shortly virgin will be bringing out proper tele using the lobster 700 model working off DAB network in uk...>>To person earlier i hav sim free black version but it purely a matter of taste their both the same inside..>>>im going to try to get to nokia center this week to upgrade to version 4 & ask how long does it take & if have to pay how much .,.,.thanx P.S.if you need to look at video or photo quality or specs of fones go to newmobile.com its a good site & earlier to day was looking at shots taken with lg"s new 5 megapixel unit & the video is very smooth.I am going off the track a bit but things seem to be going up another notch again in the mobile world lets hope the BATTERYS are heading in the same direction (PLEASE TAKE NOTE NOKIA ,,,SAMSUNG,,,OTHERS)
Yeah mine was pretty bad. It lasted about a day and a half to 2 days and that was with medium use if that. I have gone back to the original Nokia battery which I can get 3 days of use from, so yeah don't bother buying an 1000Mah battery. Mobilefun did not show the correct picture, god knows why. The battery that came was black, I think its the same battery thats being sold on other sites. It is ok for a backup battery I guess as mine only takes just over 30 mins to charge. I probably won't use it again though, going to stick with my nokia one as that takes 1 hour 10 mins to charge and gives me more stanby time etc. I just hope nokia release a better battery or have the N80 on the software update site very soon.
I have the latest software version in my phone
Nokia N80 (12)
It doesn't hang anymore, works really fast =P
Nokia better be allowing existing users to update theirs phones to this new "Internet Edition" or there will be strong words.... I bought the phone thinking that SIP/VoIP was going to work out the box (the option is the menu). Apart from that, amazing phone. Yes you can turn off Wi-Fi BTW.
wats the best color for the n80 fone?the one that wont scratch or fade easily... anser me pls
i cant operate my dictionary
it state some word data is not there when i try to use it how come ?
any 1 come across this problem pls help thks
I have question on Wi-Fi, its spec says 802 11g, so does that mean it won't work with a,b networks
and the FM radio, how does this work does need at kind of activation with service provider, any anwers for these q are welcome, thanx in advance
Nokia Oh Nokia ! I've waited so long for a masterpiece like this to be released. I can't really think of anything left out on this phone. I use it as my little baby / PDA.
And for the query; how can the N91's video rec. be better than this folk if N91's vid res. is half of N80 ? NAH - I don't think so !
whats the audio / mp3 player like on this phone is it as capable as the n91?? cos if you go for 2gb card that is plenty to store music instead of unnecessary 4gb hard drive
ive looked back at the forum and ben got his from mobile fun so theres only a report from him to see if theres is any better performance..Mine & victors were bought from different firms but both have on the front UP TO 1000MA so that could disguise a myriad of actual performances but bens does not have an actual picture on the site to compare the battery.THinking of getting n93 but its just money probs at moment.Going to get it not off internet this time & give it a good hammering to see if its any better cause its easier to return it as the stores is there its not in cyberspace
to ben & battery person,,,are you getting better results with 1000ma batt..mine is worse than original nokia battery & seems to go from 5 bars to 1 bar in 20 mins of mp3 playing or just switching it off & on?? Igot mine from datakits but i think its a dud battery are you gwetting any better results & where did you purchase your battery from
