Can u confirm this is a hardware bug so I can proceed with Nokia Care to replace my 808...
Or should I wait for a fix from Nokia via update... I also read that this is related to Micro Sim & its holder...

I'm a technician instead. I work more with pc's. Smartphones and pc's look alike. I will be an 808 user soon, i hope:). And no problem scares me:)). Unfortunately i will never ensure anybody to buy something. I can talk from my experience but still not ensure him that he will get a great device. Maybe he get's a faulty one... i'm not sticking my hands on that! Overall this device is better then my N8... At least for me. So i'm waiting for my money to grow bigger so to purchase it. Even though i know there is not a very big difference between them, only the camera (which is a very huge difference) a bit of processor and ram improvement, i'm still gonna buy it! And symbian is symbian, so if you have a good "in deep" experience with one, you know them all:)

But i think that will come a fix in near future, you can still take it back if you want to... also some things nokia costumer support said: "Our Nokia Support Discussions Community recommends to set the network selection to manual. Have you tried that option already? Thanks!"
Another one is saying:
I apologise for not contributing more to this thread recently. I have been out of the office and away from the internet for 3 weeks (doesn't happen often).
I understand we have identified an issue and have a solution in testing, so yes, I can confirm that Nokia is still working on this issue.
I will communicate more to this thread when I have more information.
this is what somebody from the web experienced...
I have the same bug and this is what I found after testing 3 micro sim cards providers here in Kuwait. The problem is related to the size of the golden chip that is on your micro sim card. If the size of that golden chip is thin and a little short or tall then you will have the problem when turning mobile data on as tried both of them from 2 diffrent providers and got the problems of hanging evertime I'm using mobile data for internet.
As for the 3rd provider VIVA, the golden chip is almost square and filling almost 97% of the micro sim card and it worked perfectly without having any troubles using high speed internet, 3.5G netowrk, and using MicroSD card 32Gb class 10, and since then my nokia 808 never got any hanging or crashes issues. and this is what I'm using right now and I have no issues or troubles anymore.
When I turned back to the other micro sims (Zain and Wataniya) the problem started again.
In conclusion, after a lot of tests through formating and using different micro sim cards, I found out it is the micro sim card reading that keeps making the problem.
Please do confirm if somthing helped!

Same thing happened again, now I think I can't use HSPA in this phone, I 'm pretty sure that it's a hardware bug... If I will give it to replace Nokia Care will take around a month to do the same...cos it's India...

I can only say that I love my 808, had an N8 before that I also loved. People of today is guided much of the inch or cores. Many can not believe how fast my 808 having a single core. The creators of games and not have to sideline symbian. No need to confuse old and mature, as in many things symbian handles better than android. My 808 has everything I need, that punishment is not the success it deserves. Windows Phone does not convince me yet and would not know whether to buy symbian dies. Excuse my English use a translator
there is no doubt that pureview is a great phone.but there is a problem with the social even with 3g photos will not open.even some time they open no option for zooming and downloading the photos.
Any ideas forthe improvement of the social on this phone.
Nokia 808 PV or Nokia N9 or Nokia Lumia 920 or Samsung Galaxy Note or Samsung Galaxy S3?

I change my mobiles often. As for as 808 is concerned, I found it one of the best mobile phones. I am surprised as mostly people think that its only android or Iphones which can handle your social activities like face book, linked in, yahoo messanger, e mail accounts etc but believe you me this set has all the features in it. In my opinion its really worth having nokia 808. Its the only set which has the best cam, fm transmitter and sexy looks. Once you use the fm transmitter you will start loving your 808.
