An old phone now been passed by by better models it is a very basic phone but this is not reflected in the phones original price but today you can pick up one in your local trader papers for around £50 to £70 and the lack of memory storage and the lack of memory in the phone itself has put many off this phone and the phone is no real use to men with large fingers as it will be easy to press other keys when texting etc and the sliding front makes this phone not very practical in everyday use and is under the metal case just another nokia from the origins of the series 40 range from a few years ago but the reported battery life of 190 hours is more like 3 days but even then it may go flat on you so spend your cash on better models and in todays credit crunch they are many to select from and prices are coming down every day so why not look at what you need from a phone first but if you want to make out you smoke cigars then this phone will do this for you as it does resemble a cigar case the standard nokia 6300 costing far far less does the same task as this but offers more for far less i class this phone as a nokia inovation from bits of other phones so i must assume they have x fiat workers employed there now

Anonymous, 24 May 2008hey........this phone doesnt have any usb so how do u transfer stuff from the phone to the com... moreI have this phone. It has software for PC and Mac. I use it on a Mac. It has very fast bluetooth transfer. Click the program and it sees all contents in the phone. Drag and drop. If you erase what is seen on the computer...it erases it from the phone; visa versa. Works like a charm.
I've had my 8801 (USA version) for over a year. No problems. Battery lasts much longer than I've read about. Some people must be flipping it open and close every five-seconds.
Sound quality is better than my Sony or Motorola. Camera is not so good. But, it's, generally, faster then my D600. All-in-all a good phone. I purchase it again.
One complaint: The "Performance" opinions on this site are worthless. The 8801 performs better than most phones I've uses.
hey........this phone doesnt have any usb so how do u transfer stuff from the phone to the computer......answers are much appreciated....thanks
Very beautiful phone with class the only problem with the phone is that the battery does'nt long enough.
i bought my phone last jan of 2007. flex damge as well as the LCD slide. if you want your phone to be repaired the best ways ever,,
go to Ayala Town Center (Alabang) 3rd floor. just find Nokia store. You'll find all original parts. In my case, they have to ship the parts from I think finland or US. not more that 10k. I find it absolutely best for Nokia_hiGh-eNd_N-sEriES for phone like 8800..
on what web page can i buy the flex for my phone, some stupid technician ruined it and now i cant find it at any store, but i want one that doesnt need no heat gun to install... thanx
please note that,the current phone goes off in the middle of sending a message or the battries goes off after a short period.
kindly advice on the way forward to avoid disposing the phone off.
i have a 8800 which has a horrible battery and to top it my camera does not work what is the solution please help me.....should i reinstall the software and the 6x sirroco battery are a good option or not
