Yes, i will be proud when i will owe it:)). Just cause here, is like a ghost makes it more unique then any other phone from the market. I can say that 80% of people here don't even know of it's existence. They are all samsung or iphone blinded. Real technology lovers cannot skip this phone just because is Symbian and doesn't have 4 cores and 700 torch apps, 2000 social apps and so on! This phone is pure innovation. It is just madness, a collection unit. Definitely a buy. (for me at least:D). Especially now, when is reduced. Here is from 420 euros to 480... from 0 to 200 euros with contract (depending on what contract).

I have updated OS on 7th Dec. the update process went through fine but the camera ha... moreHey, is this the only problem you have? Normally this comes from a not so successful update. You can try this... i've copy paste this from an earlier post of mine:
What ever problem you have after updating you can "repair" it very easy. Just format your mass storage and bring your phone to factory settings then reinstall the system. That's it!
If you don't know how:
1. First backup mass memory important personal files, then: Enter Files/long press Mass Mem. hit format.
2. Now hit *#7370#, will ask for security code (if you have one) give your security code. Accept everything, then the phone will restart and will remain to just "NOKIA" for a couple of minutes (in this period the phone is formatting and rewriting the original apps). In the meantime, delete the folder containing your firmware (if you updated via nokia suite) in your pc presuming you have win7 the files are ex: C:\Users\Ray\AppData\Local\Nokia\NSU3\NOSSU2\variants\Products\rm-807
or this C:\ProgramData\Nokia\Nokia Suite\NOSSU2\variants\Products\rm-807
This are hidden paths, so you need to activate "show hidden files, folders and drives" from folder option/view
After all is done, phone restarted and everything is formatted, plug the phone into usb, open Nokia suite and hit reinstall firmware. See if this problems are persisting. Remember to backup first the important files. Never backup apps or settings. i usually update only contacts and messages.
AnonD-65020, 10 Dec 2012hi,carol,whr r u frm i mean which country...i ha ve one doubt is it good to retain pv in long ... moreHey, i don't support piracy, so the safest way is through Nokia store. But i never had problems with "other" type of downloads. Also, no problem hacking my device... i use N8, not 808, but they are quite the same... only that 808 has (way) better camera and is faster. Also 808 will be my next phone 100%. I really don't care so much about 300.000 apps and as long as works perfect i will hold it until it dies (if it ever will:)). I use Nokia-Symbian since 2003-2004 and was never about the apps, was about the things it could do and about quality that Nokia provided with their smartphones in front of other phones. Signal, sound and build, BEST QUALITY. No Nokia smartphone died on my but only the n70 (once, when i tried to plug some defective headphones it cracked the jack). Second n70 lasted 4 years, and then my brother lost it:)). So it was still not dead. I love technology but i don't like wasting money. Nokia is a good long term buy, with, or without upgrades and one "zezilion" apps:). Lumia's are good phones to, but i would have prefer that Nokia would have not abandoned Symbian. Oh well, there is still 808 there that waits for me to buy it. There is no rush upgrading. I'm in no useless fight that sounds like: hey i have bigger screen slimmer body and 8 cores and a tone of ram... and my phone can cook pizza's. What 808 can do is more then any user needs. Even a tech fanatic like me feeds his appetite with the n8 (which is quite a superior phone, while
others think only about quadcores:)) So, 808? Will be a 4 years superb technology without any feeling that you are behind. Minding the fact that it's camera will be surpassed in 20 years. This day to day fight between smartphones is coming to an age of ridiculousness! Where manufacturers make a sh*tload of money from people that don't think for them selves and buy every 2 mounts a new phone that will never satisfy them cause after the next two mounts comes a 6 core with 0,5 cm bigger screen and with that one, they are "not" up to date anymore... most of this guys are looking for 5 points more in benchmark and to be on top of the... NOTHING:). The others are just going with the herd. I' m from Germany, by the way... and i usually talk to much.
I have updated OS on 7th Dec. the update process went through fine but the camera hangs 9 out of 10 times I try to use it. any suggestions?? Regards sachin

AnonD-65020, 07 Dec 2012friend,if u have doubt on orignality of nokia 808 then visit nokia care with your imei number ... moreThanks for your advise. Glad that you're finally made a right choice,enjoy your 808 PV, the best Cameraphone and a Great Smartphone too (All in One phone - you have all functionalities that you need in one phone).
i hope that the next update will increase the pixel density of the phone and it can support live wallpaper.. And also a lot better browser.. Other than that it's perfect.. I love it.
I hope software developers out there will make some more hd games for this phone especially gameloft and ea..:))

AnonD-65020, 09 Dec 2012hi,carol.tnx 4ur reply ya i kno but if u take android phones have ads but if u switch off data... moreHey, no problem, good to help. You can take games from other sites if you don't afford to pay them in store (i don't thinks this is an issue for you:). Android has some that work without internet, but has some that need internet. Like Nokia... let's say "fruit ninja". Requires internet but is not necessary. I always play without internet:). But yes indeed, there are allot of crappy games that require internet. I never downloaded them:).. Good choice you made with pv. This is already a legend:).

[deleted post]cause you need to pay them if you want to have them without internet, nothing comes free. There are games that are free. But because of this, they have adds(they need internet, but not all of them). Also there are games\apps that don't work but only with adds (these are rare) And there are games that you can buy so you won't have adds;).
Anonymous, 08 Dec 2012I have got one from Finland but now the factory in Salo is closed down.sadlyi didnt knew it, glad to hear that there pureview davices made in Finland, but sad also for the closing factory. However thanks for the info.
Don't download always on Java games. These require for you to be connected to the Internet in order for you to play them.
the reason why i love the phone is because of the camera,this phone is extra ordinary.
Hi friends please help me I'm using this handset but I'm not able to capture images of running objects whether I also tried sports mode but images aren't good. Can anyone suggest me what should I do.
