D mate there is no point of buying this fone because its a waste of money plus the features are rubbish trust me have got one and i regret the day i first bought it
I'm planning to buy 2nd hand 8800 gold edition for about 300 us dollars. Still in really good condition, is that too expensive? What should i do in terms of checking the quality of the phone? Need advise a.s.a.p, Cheers!
i got a nokia 8800 last year and it's not that user friendly plus the navigation is only limited. mp3's are only limited for a number of 4 or 5, then if you will load songs at the same time, there won't be enough memory space for the pictures and videos. unlike the other nokia models, you have to carefully choose the tone pattern or else you will just waste your time uploading it. plus, i'm having a hard time hearing from it and when i turn on the loudspeaker it's just the same as a standard volume. the battery is such crap that you have to plug-it in if you want to talk for long. for pairing bluetooth devices it drains the battery right away. it is really fancy and classy style, but i will never buy this kind of phone again. it's just sleek and easy to put inside the pocket but aside from that functionality is really low. i've dropped it for how many times the housing now got dented, i looked for the new housing and it costs me half of its price.
Hi i am having a 8800 set and could you pls tell me how can i increase the memory of my phone and one more thing its battery is also very week after charging almost for 2 hours it is getting discharged with in 15,20 mints.
i have a 8800 and iam facing a problem regarding its camera(operation failed)!!can anyone tell me how to get out of this problem??
i have Nokia 8800 but am having problem
with the volume.sometimes am not hearing when some one is talking to me.Is there any
solution or suggestion?
the best ever!! just buy a BP-6X battery w/c is the Sirocco Edition's battery, and your battery problems will be solve!! Pretty sleek phone indeed!
Nokia 8800 is the best mobile phone ever made!!! Just put battery from sirocco and you wont have any problem...
you should buy the BP-6X battery(Sircco's Battery), it last longer, mine it last for 2 1/2 days. Try it!
my god the battery is unbelievably crap! so i got a new one- which is even worse!! It won't last for a whole day, even without using it for calls, which is impossible without being plugged into the wall. And the sound is shot, i have to have it on loudspeaker as its all crackly and tinny otherwise. oh and the scratch-proof glass has two big scratches on it.
No wonder they were selling it on ebay- thanks for the total dud Nokia!
This phone is the equivalent of stapling e800's to your forehead and dancing around singing 'I'm rich and have no taste'
I was wondering if anyone had a problem with setting the ringtone of the phone. I would set it with a tone, and a few hours later it would go back to the default Nokia tune? Could this be a software/firmware problem?
8800 phone would last for years!! never out of style.. in the near future it would be a classic like old classic ferraris, value remains at high price. =)
5300 is a nice phone but i think 8800 is far more better than it. Let say I drop my 8800 on 4th floor building and your 5300 on a 3rd floor building, who do you think has the greater damage? For us, the most priority for a phone must have is the capability of call and text and most especially its durability for everyday AOL. Features are just secondary mainly because, it is not the main thing why you buy a phone...
Sorry o! this fone is COOL like that! i have it and have been on it for 9mths now, just got the 5300...and this phone that is way cheaper than the 8800 has alot more fascinating features..even with all its features its battery life is much stronger than that of the 8800..i am still amazed at how that is...8800 is just slick/ fancy on the outside..period!!
thank you very much for your reply. btw, i have a plan to change the case of my nokia 8801 into a sirocco case. i asked a seller in ebay and replied it will directly fit to nokia 8800 but to nokia 8801, it will need an antenna. Is it true that sirocco casing will fit to an nokia 8801? also, where will the antenna be putted? help plz. thanks...
this is the coolest phone ever made.. so you gealous people who can't affort it.. shut the f*** up!!!
8800 is different from 8801, it differs from there MHZ, like in the US they use the 8801 instead of the 8800 different frequency in different countries. Maybe that the reason why your signal goes to zero. Or maybe go to Nokia Service Center and have it check.
About the pouch for the 8800, i just recently bought a Original Nokia Pouch the CP-153 color brown. Google it to see what it looks like.
