if i wasnt mistakin ur problem with the screen is because of teh memo card.. i once used a 2 gig memo card and the phones screen kept going white and stuck till i changed my card.. so good luck with that...
The lag experienced whenever you send out messages had been rectified years ago with the SMS Accelerator made by Nokia and can be downloaded from both the NSeries web and wapsites. You also get the SMS Accelerator and the APServer when you install fring on your N80.
About those asking of the N80's video and photo qualities versus the N70, the N80 may take better pictures but the N70 still takes better video what with a dedicated chip to support its camera module and is something the N80 does not have.
If you want to test whether your N80 is having a Flex Cable (ribbon) problem, try sliding the top part up or down very slowly. When the screen turns white halfway, then you got a problem (even if everything goes back to normal later). Other symptoms include having a faulty 2nd camera, inaudible keypad tones (even when set to the highest setting), and a faulty earpiece.
Hope those things help.
when I saw this phone on the advertisement.
I really got fascinated...I like its shape and love the whole features of it.I bought it with out any hesitation.But after using it for a few months I started to have problem.especially when sending text messages.It takes time before it will sent.Even in calling its always stuck.So after having it for 18months I decided to swap it to another unit.
if some one having bettery problem and mobile is being stuck, i can solve it. here is ur problem.
2-things are causing this.
(1) don,t charge the mobile more than 2 hours or don,t leave (sleep)while the mobile is in charge
(2) stop buting songs,video,games....etc in ur mobile every time(day) this causes virus and bettrey problem.
i have this phone for a year and didn't have problem lately, but i have a problem regarding the display screen cause can't lit up and but on and off for few seconds then off all the time.
u can change the casing but u need *Star type* screw driver to change the case. If battery facing problem after change new one, Try buy original battery because the BR-05 battery recently facing problem like unable to charge to full or drain so fast or full but only can stand 5min after that empty. but n80 also drain battery kinda fast(1day+). This Phone still perfect for me even me change phone every 1 week+, by the way, 10 over 9(FLIP, TWIsT,Slide) phone having ribbon problem, already normal.
I have this phone 1 year ago. I'm very happy with the feature for this phone. But i always facing the skrin problem because of ribbon. I already changing 4 times my ribbon with rm150 each. Also i can't changing the casing itself. The batery also got problem where the original batery already broken. So, as a conclution form out of 10, i choose 7 for this phone.
Gayanath if me not mistaken u having problem with the ribbon, me look around alot forum, mostly they have same problem because the ribbon. Try Less Use the slide, try unlock by power button, and save all contact, so can less damages the ribbon on it. but the ribbon cause quite cheap around MYR50.
i have this phone for 2 years but its really a good phone,but the only problem is the ribbon on it.
I have a small problem with my Nokia N80. That is sometimes it gives a error message mentioning "System Error" and then the phone gets stuck. The screen also goes white and I have to remove the battery to switch off the phone. I appriciate your valuable comments on this matter...
Me using third day including today, not big problem, first need master reset because the color run off(if u having green line or color run off than try master reset), 2nd meet battery life(Br-5 battery, so what u think? ), third is unlock keypad keep appear but i think it respon to my Pouch(magnet on it) tat why. but it great phone, nice camera, so small n quite slim if u compare with another pHone(dun compare with slimer). afterall nice phone, love it.....
I have this phone for almost 2 years now. It's a good phone. It almost have everything that a cell phone can offer. Only the 'loading-time' takes forever when you switch on.
hi! Some time ago, i took my fone to be fixed and when it came back, it had totally different settings. When i switch it off and on again, it always requests for date and time. How do you get it to have an auto update so i don't punch in those things everytime i switch it on?
i have hand my nokia N80 for a year now. i dont use all of the features like wlan and internet browsing.i personaly think that it is a multimediea brick !!
the 3mp camera is very gd because the auto focus,zoom and the fact that it can automatically adjust how much light is needed in the picture.the sound is ok and the clarity is also quite gd. i think that the memory is of low capacity and even with my 128 mb mini sd card i have only got around 20 odd tracks but i do have alot of pics on it. the batery life only lasts for about 3 days and that is when i leave it on a shelve.! i can get about 3 hours of consant music play back when fully charged.
on the oher hand the n80 has blutooth and an infered port. this phone is good for a buisness man/woman as it has quick office,a secondary camera which i think would be gd for a 2 person confrence lol. the charge time is fairly fast.and finally you can create presentations and send emails but i don't really use those features much as i am only thirteen. i would rate this phone 6-7/10
i hope you find this unfortionatly long and boring comment useful when buying this phone
Also, another con I forgot to mention - THE BATTERY SUCKS!!! Terrible for even an average user. If you are going anywhere but your house for the night, don't forget to bring a charger =)
I have been using Nokia N80 for the past 1.5 years. It has worked well, and been through everything with me :) However, it is NOT THE BEST phone.
Good resolution screen
THE cable connecting the phone to the computer does is wobbly. I nearly bricked a phone because I moved the phone from one position to another when updating the firmware.
HUGE in pocket
THE cover is wably
SMALL keys, especially the D-pad
Slow when loaded up with themes and other stuff
MANY useless features for the average user
All in all, this phone is good for the corporate people that really need the email, internet, and other corporate-oriented features of this phone.
As an average user, I regret spending so much money on a phone, whose features I barely used.
I just got myself Nokia 6300 and it has everything I need without excess and for a good price. So, if you are a corporate guy, if you are constantly on the move and need all of the features offered by N80, get it. Otherwise, don't waste your money.
almost all slider, clamshell, and swivel phones suffer from this ribbon thing resulting into white screen.
with that in mind i still went with this phone because of all the features packed into it.
6500 slide might be faster than this one but specs wise, i think this phone still wins.
