Worst battery life on any phone ever me and about 10 friends have this phone and we need to charge it at least twice a day useless peice of garbage
Are they still offering free BP-6X battery? I just called the customer care, n' they said they'll call me in 48hours. Where can I find the cheapest BP-6X battery? someone pls.. email me
If u want to recognize wich is the sirocco and wich is the 8800, u can understand from the camera and the internal memory.
8800 : Camera SVGA, 800x600 pixels
Memory 64 MB internal
Sirocco : Camera 2 MP, 1600x1200 pixels
Memory 128 MB internal
So I think its not difficult to recognize it if u make a search on the settings of the phone...
Just to further add to the enforcement of switrching batteries to the bp-6x. I have all the battery problems mentioned here until I switched to the new battery. Interesting for me I out my 8800 in for a firmware upgrade and had a general winge at nokia about the battery, nokia replaced the bl-5x with the bp-6x no charge. Intesrting they ( nokia ) did not replace with bl-5x. At present getting 4 - 5 days elapsed with various usage patterns. If your serious about keeping the 8800 long tern then switching ti a bp-6x battery is a must.
I was wondering, do any owners of this phone have problems such as the phone reseting by its self or blocking? I'm thinking of buying it but this problem keeps coming up in every review I read. I'm from Serbia and though maybe its a problem with the phones that are bought in this region. Any advice would be helpful. thanks....
Do somebody know if I cud instal on my nokia 8800 a software "epitools". This software is requiring a windos qapplication on the mobile??
It is possibile to instal such a soft on this nokia model ??
How can you tell if the nokia 8800 sirocco is fake and its not the real mobile ? for example if someone changed the face from the normal nokia 8800.....
it seems that nobody is reading my opinions....
i have used a bp-6x (sirocco) battery in my 8800.
it fits fine, it works fine, talk time is 4 hours
standby time is 3 to 4 days (depends on use)
no trouble at all.....
been using it for more than 6 months now and no more battery problem
i think nokia will never do it...... thats why i posted many time here but always getting same problem...
c'mon guys switch battery and use bp-6x.... and no more complaints
can anyone tell me whether sirocco 8800's battery (BL-6X) can be used in 8800's (BL-5X) phone? as far as i know, the BL-6X battery is thicker than BL-5X.
I bought this phone in anticipation of owning the best phone on the market (with the price and everything). However, I was extremely dissapointed. The battery last for lest than a day. Talk time was about 1 hour. Every so often, the phone would freeze or restart all by itself. No expandable memory card slot. POOR camera option. For the price and phone feature, it would be like paying for a Lorenzo and getting a Toyota. Worst PHONE I had ever own. But I'm still sticking with NOKIA. I now have the N91. Let's see how it goes with this one.
I just bought a Black Nokia 8800. I always have short battery life. But knowing this fact prior to my purchase it really isn't a issue. But heres the thing every time I am holding my phone when its charging, the touch pad (the thing that controls the mouse on a laptop) wouldn't work. Could it be that there something wrong with this OEM charger that I bought from a local phone store?
NOKIA really dissapointed me; i hav this phone about 3mts and tawt the battery was faulty but after checkin this site and readin the comments they jus screwed up wit the battery,this phone is jus for 'S H O W' nevertheless i'm STAYIN WITH NOKIA...wati'll do before buyin any phones that any NOKIA phones is to check this site FIRST cheers
your totally right. whats the point having a phone that lasts for an hour. anyone who says this phone is good is just trying to justify the amount of money they spent on an awful phone.
if you wat a piece of metal that allows you to talk for maybe an hour, then buy this..nokia had great intentions with this phone, but the result is the total opposite. Buy it if your not going to call anyone or use the phone, its just for looks.
i have this phone for more than a year. I always love and apppreciate it. Although not as functional as other cheaper models, I have it because my intention is to use only for voice call, mms and sms. Thats all I need. If I want more function I would buy N series instead. Charging the phone everynight is not a big issue to me, I`ve got time to do that..
How many times i have to say this?
If you like a phone packed with feature, this phone is not for you.
Dont you even know what you're buying?
At least read what are the phone feature before you buy it.
Not buy it, use it, then complain that it has no feature!
i have a nokia 8800 for 2 weeks now and am so frustrated with it. its battery life is shocking and has no features worth talking about. im going back to my sony ericsson w810i which i should have stayed with in the first place. avoid 8800 at all costs.
Many of my others phone have that problem, when you wiggle the cord, it starts charging, which is another symptom indicate that the problem is from the charging port in the phone.
So just wait for the charger to come and try it, just to be sure, then if it is not working, they just bring it to nokia, they just have to replace the port, nothing big so it shouldnt cost much
