for whoever is having a problem with the battery life....GET A FREAKIN CAR CHARGER!!!
I use a 6X on my Nokia 8800, it works fine. Go ahead and buy it, no risks taken.
Can anyone help me out please. I went to Nokia store yesterday trying to buy the BP-6X battery for my 8800 but the Nokia sales manager discouraged me. She said it is not compatible with the 8800 since the BP-6X is for sirroco. They had a case where in someone bought the BP-6X batt and used it for 8800 but it did'nt work. Could'nt charge the batt after it was drained. The BP-6X battery they are selling is made in china (is there any difference where the battery is made?)Shyould I go on and risk buying it anyway? Please advise. Thanks
Nice phone, classics.
You can increase battery working time, by mounting sciroco model battery.
nice phone but battery time always disturb me do any one know how to increase battery timing.
I had been looking at this phone for a few years now, before it was even introduced to the US. I always dreamed of owning it. Finally, my phone died a month ago and it was time for a new one. I checked this one out and read about the horrible battery life problem. Yet I was optimistic and went ahead and got a barely used one off of ebay. Well, it's true. The battery life SUCKS. And for me that's a huge problem because battery life is extremely important. And the battery meter on the side of the main screen would go from full to one bar without anything in between. My batteries only lasted about 30 minutes talking, and half a day on stand by. I realize that this might be because it is a used phone, but I doubt it. So I went ahead and bought two new batteries on ebay. One was a "longer life" aftermarket battery. It was just as bad. Then yesterday my battery from Hong Kong arrived. I heard that the BP-6X battery for the Luna worked so I tried it out. It is a fairly large improvement, but the battery life still is nowhere near what I hoped it would be. the problem with the battery meter on the side also seems to be fixed with the BP-6X.
All in all, I would highly caution anyone looking to buy this phone. It's definitely not meant to be a primary phone. Unless you plan on charging it throughout the day, this is not the phone for you. It's beautiful, but barely functional.
Yeah the battery life is awful on this and the camera isn't great either. But I still prefer it to my old Motorola V3.
I have had three 8801's within the past year. All were covered under the two year warranty but all still had the same problem, including the one I currently own. I can hear my callers but they can't hear me. I need to press many buttons to trigger the mic to work again. Such a pain, I've given up on this 8801 Sirroco and just bought the 8600 Luna. I pray that the 8600 won't share those problems similar to the 8801. They are both good looking phones and because I am a loyal Nokia owner, no matter what happens, I will always buy another Nokia.
Yeah, you're right! I've got sirocco battery. It says bp 6x on the battery. Woohoo....i love this thing!!!
D, You must be so lucky to get that long battery life!! It's kind of imposslibe. You might have got the Sirocco Battery.
Hi lads, just got my 8800 and love it! It seems that i got the good one. Battery last 2 1/2 day with heavy use. Would you guys share tips and tricks? Cheers maaate....!!
The problem you're having is same as mine, There's something wrong withe the speaker.
You must have it fixed by Nokia. I had to do
It myself and now it's working properly.
regarding the 8800 does anyone know how to solve the volume problem?... people can hear me but cant hear clearly ..even on loud speaker. please advise .
i have da exact same comment as the perso below. can you provide a link to the one you bought so i dont buy a bad one too? have you try testing to see how long it last?
Anyone know who on ebay sells real bp-6x's, i see some that say genuine, bought one and looks fake, the hologram only is red, doesnt go green to red, and the nokia and bp-6x text is skinnier than my bl-5x text
