Updating Firmware means upgrading / updating the software inside your mobile phone to the latest version. Something like "Upgrading from Window XP to Window Vista". You can upgrade your Firmware by bringing your phone to the Nokia care centre.
thx man, but plz can u tell me what do u mena by " update firmware " ? i'm sorry :)
People, once and for all, get use to read what was written before!!! Update your firmware and reboots will be solved. This has been said 1 milion and 1 times now....
i also bought this mob. and have the same right key problem... every time i try 2 set it it reboots !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
bought this phone today, coz I needed a cheap phone as back up coz my phone bills are skyrocketing way too high.. so.. i needed to save.
anyway, i cant help noticing how small and light it is. if you've got big hands, this isn't the right one for you. the keypad is great too, soft and nice to press. i also noticed that there aren't any hard to reach parts in it, so you can like clean it coz it won't be so hard.
for calls. i tried calling my husband with it before i paid. he said it's loud and clear.
for text messaging. it holds three lines, and texting is a breeze, even in one hand. i had a hard time coz I got so used with sony ericsson (this is my first nokia in about a year). there are also features like: send to many, send to list, and send later. i believe it also has screened/blocked message option, so.. if someone keeps bugging you you can add them on there. there is no delete-all option though.
games. never tried the games. never really liked games anyway.
flashlight. you can add this on the right key selections so you won't have to go through all the menus.
tones. it has, i believe, a composer. pretty much like the old nokia phones (3310 and 3210). it allows more than 2 composed ringtones (sorry i can't be more detailed, i just browsed it a bit).
overall. a good phone for a cheap price. if all you want is a backup phone for texting and calling (cutting bills?), then you should go get this one. it's lightweight, looks nice, and is cheap. it's really a phone.
I just bought this phone today. It's very light, small, and pretty stylish looking.
The N1208 is being underrated due to an initial reboot bug.By now if you had read users' comments here it is easily solved by updating your firmware to V4.00 & above.The real flaw left is the poor keypad design - not suited for big fingers or fast texters. Hope this is useful.
I and my 2 friends bought N1208 3days ago. This has programming flaws... big time. You can only choose the right selection key once. If you try to edit it, it reboots automatically. You have to reset it to factory settings to edit the right key selection. My friends' unit was worse, if he selects a feature on the "Go to" selection, it reboots... has anyone reported this to nokia already? Recalls?
I bought my nokia 3530 5 years ago, and it still works far more better than this. I only had to change the battery after 5 years. Now, its reliable again for calls. Hope they make this n1208 at least realiable for call and txt as it should be.. It's a cute fone though.
The problem with my phone is that when i press the right soft key twice ... it resets ... if someone knows an answer to this problem ... pls mail me... THX
Thanks for the prompt reply, I think I shall go in for this phone. Only one more question thats worring is people talk of bugs in phone and if there are can this be debugged by Nokia dealer as I plan to but it from a Nokia Priority Dealer in mumbai. Would appreciate a sincere reply.
Yeah. This phone sucks great. The sms software was not properly installed and a month after I bought it, I can nolonger send any sms. I had the phone reprogrammed but a month later the same thing happened. This sucks great. A bad record for nokia. I'm a die hard nokia fan until I bought this phone. I think I'm buying a different brand this time. The Indian calendar pretty useless. Can't use it.
It is one of the best phones I've ever seen for its price.convenient with good dimensions and very resistant.Go for it
Yes it has auto key-guard with possibility of changing time lag to guarding.
Yes it has both digital and analogue screen saver
i think this phone has some bug. it resets sometimes. but it's good. limited SMS about a hundred more or less
I wish to purchase this phone. Question does this phone have a analog & digital screensaver? Howmany SMS can it store? Pl. Reply immediately as I have to gift it to someone.
