Nokia is now focusing on marketing windows phones which still need a lot of improvements!! True that it lacks customization and very limited functionalities!!

Carol, 20 Mar 2013This is a strange issue. Can you plug your SIM card into another phone? If yes, then try to se... moreI know it is not normal and you are tech guru here (no bad feelings) but here is one issue with hard reset, probaby you may have not noticed: until you do not do hard reset, your cell will not ask for time and date settings even after you remove the battery for long period, but after hard reset, it will stast asking for the date and time setting every time you remove the battery from the phone and that is what I hate the most. It prolongs the boot up time. I've faced the issue with my former symbian belle devices.
meanwhile, thanks for the sim change idea but it has cut down to micro size, so I've to make arrangements to put the sim in other phone. will update you once I'll do the trick whether it worked or not.

Hi Carol and all guys:
I promised you all to write my first impressions about my new lovely Nokia 808 pureview and comparison between it and my Ex. lumia 800 so let's start
1-the first time to touch 808 pureview was the one I own now...looks very luxury and gorgeous at white color, heavy and makes me feels by the amazing build quality and the great feeling in the hand.
2-Then biggest and real threat for me was the nHD resolution, it was for me like what the heck...why nokia released this awesome camera phone with such sucking low resolutions and 184 ppi only, I watched millions of videos and asked such number of users on YouTube about the screen, most of them told me the RGB and clear black display was perfect...but you know I must try it to be convinced and don't forget a lot of reviewers are proud with macro mode of their DSLR'S so the 808 pureview screen looks very bad in most of videos beside this f**king bad TV flicker which always appears. I really thought it will be like DOS screen
BUT I REALLY SOCKED when I saw it for the first time ever...it's very beautiful, really very very beautiful, I can see some pixels upper the icons and they are not that sharp...but at all the screen is brilliant and very vivid and gives amazing experience so this is the best great surprise 808pureview gives me :) not to mention how this screen is brilliant at outdoors wow :D
3-The third thing which makes me afraid from pureview, my experience I got from my old N8 and my ex lumia which actually I sold it 4 days before 808...WP is like ice running on hot surface or butter so daring to go back to Symbian is very big risk, symbian Belle also was great and practical more than WP 7.8 but it's very slow and you know no support and no apps and games like IOS and android... just I remembered the browser...OMG I'll kill my self one day for this horrible web experience :)
-Nokia 808 pureview makes me really loved Symbian more and more....guys it's very smooth, I can't tell you my second happy shock when I scrolled the menus...OMG Symbian is just brilliant and colorful and every thing is buttery smooth like my lumia 800 so I will not suffer from my second major threat which is the OS BTW I loved the browser, I know it's weak but it satisfied me at my browsing and if I open the mobile version of any site it's smooth and lovely but it's very slow when opening site like phone arena at its full desktop version...I do love the belle on 808 pureview.
3-I'm a beginner photographer and I just bought this phone for it's camera so I will not take a lot about this innovation... enough that the verge website said this ((Astounding, breathtaking, stupefying)) so I can get depth of field at portrait photos far from the person 3 meters an this is a phone I put in my pocket...really only the geek will compare it to crap like HTC one (the medi core camera) like the verge said....my 5 mp is better than all the 8 mp from all other smartphones...enough said end of story
4- now comes to my ex lumia 800 what it really missed
-very poor camera algorithms the most shitty 8 mp I've ever seen. really terrific camera and video is out focused first 30 sec.
- Nokia 808 has stunning audio quality with 5.1 channel and Dolby plus. ((lumia 800 is crap at this and produces very low sounds))
-true multitasking, and file manager ((I can't attach any office file at the mail on WP, it gives you sky drive link and not real attach...if the receiver don't have sky drive so he need to throw himself from the window.
-FM transmitter ((lumia 800 tells you that he loves you :D ))
USB on the Go ((Lumia 800 tells you he loves you again :D))
-full Arabic support at web browsing and keyboard unlike lumia 800
-all the important apps on lumia are paid and the market is very poor for smartphone.
-Zune sucks all the way.
- I didn't get the Bluetooth app till I sold even after 7.8 update...808 do every thing at every thing.
the only thing the lumia 800 have over 808 pureview is the browser...the best I've ever seen so far, IE9 and IE 10 are the fastest and the most powerful browsers in my opinion in terms of speed and user friendly.
really Symbian is heaven comparing to WP 7.5 and 7.8
because they are useless.
at all the comparison between lumia 800 and 808 pureview is like comparing cute small bird with old and powerful Eagle.....I really regret buying lumia 800, N8 was more useful, and practical
but now I'm very happy with this magnificent piece of technology...and if you ask me after using android and WP, Symbian still very powerful and really can compete...shame on nokia kill such great software, shame on you Nokia...any way I'm sorry for this long article I just wrote only hints cause I wanna to sleep :D
ENJOY YOUR PUREVIEW :D XD

Normally after a factory reset everything should be deleted, even the updates... Anyway, you can flash your firmware with phoenix, is better with phoenix cause it will delete the remains and will install your firmware from scratch (ok, not from scratch, but kind of). Be careful, it can be tricky... here is a tutorial link: http://www.808fanclub.com/2012/08/flash-nokia-808-pureview-phoenix.html
Hi carol and everyone, i need a little help. i am from India and i didn't receive the official camera and gallery update, but I found the same on some website and installed it. However, it was mentioned to restart the phone after installation, but i just forgot to do the same. Now the upside is phone is updated & working fine, but sometimes the gallery doesn't work properly, it shows broken thumbnails and the kinetic scrolling lags. With camera also there is some problem with focusing, some pics are ok but some are not. this was not the case before update. i did factory reset but of no use. Can anyone please help me to fix this bug :( ??
