I have altered my review of this phone 3 times. Initially, i was disapointed with the buttons layout, lack of features and design flaws. However, this phone is EXTREMELY durable. I have dropped this phone 100s of times and provided it isnt on concrete no scratches appear. Even concrete 4 foot drops only scratch, do not dent. Last week, I drowned this phone in the bath, good 3 second soak. After sticking it on the radiator, the phone runs like new. Is this little gem utterly indestructable?
Does this phone works in Usa and Europe also? I am thinking to buy it over the net so i need to know. Thank you.
My friend has the 8801 and I have the 8800 and his phone doesn't fit in my desk charger when my phone fits in his, so I think the 8801 is a bit thicker than the 8800.
theres only luxury n nothin else. no memory slot, no camera flash n not even infrared
The network that cingular provide is 800/900/1800/1900. Will 8800 or 8801 work in these networks?
Please anybody can tell me that if i can use Nokia 8800 Siccorro battery in my 8800. I heard sicorro battery is very good....
nokia 8800 : GSM 900 1800 1900 and
nokia 8801 : GSM 850 1800 1900 .. find out what GSM network do you have in that in that aria and buy one of these phones .. another thing different is that the 8801 has 12h clock and 8800 24h clock :P so..i think thats all :)
Please can anyone tell me what's the difference between the Nokia 8800 & the 8801? Which one should i buy & why? Which one can be use in asia(Vietnam)??? Thx a lot, really appreciate peeps
This is a great phone! I have dropped it a few times and would like to know how to remove scratches. any ideas? Jeweler? does nayone know if the stainless is only on the surface or is it like a stainless elevator door that can be sanded and re-polished?

this fone is beautiful,but it sucks.picture is bad.and then its so exspensive.come on man
really elegant phone... otherwise, hopeless with its battery energy and the memory.. like a beautiful woman with a small capacity of brain.. know, wat i mean??
i believe that when u slide it, u also have to press speak...read it in the manuel
do you know if this phone nokia 8800 have a defect or not?? my ringtone dont work even tho i set it to ring.
can you tell me if this phone opens up with automatic opener or you have to slide it?
the difference between the 2 models are that 8801 is for north america 850mhz and the 8800 is 900mhz so more suitable for like other countries out of north america...like hong kong japan china indoneisia etc
Hey i just got this phone,and i have nothing bad to say against it,just the battery life is kinda dissapointing,hey,but thats why they`ve put in the box two batteries,just in case.Yeah its got the looks but,lets face it,this phone does not deserve its price tag.
I also have a n80,but i very dissapointed because it keeps ressetting all the time,but its brand new and when its not ressetting,its moving real slow,i took it back to the warranty and they flashed it with the latest software,it stopped ressetting,but its still a very slow phone.
I`ve been a nokia customer for some years now,but i'm dissapointed in they`re way of building these phones,they only seem to care on selling them,not on the quality that nokia used to give to they` phones
I've been considering to buy a Nokia 8800, to be used in between the following countries: (1) Australia, (2) Indonesia, (3) Malaysia, and (4) Singapore. The phone will be used for work purposes.
The other day, however, a work colleague in my offer offered to sell his Nokia 8801 (yes, not mistyped, a Nokia '8801': the North American Market version of the Nokia 8800), with a very appealing price tag that is considerably lower than the Nokia 8800.
The main difference is that the 8801 has no e-mail facility, and that it operates in the North American GSM Frequency of 850/1800/1900 rather than that of the GSM Frequency of 900/1800/1900 found outside of North America.
Will purchasing the Nokia 8801 over the Nokia 8800 (and saving a considerable amount of dollars) have any technical and operational downsides and abnormalities, when being used between (1) Australia, (2) Indonesia, (3) Malaysia, and (4) Singapore?
Any help in explaining and determining whether I should save some money and go for the Nokia 8801 over the Nokia 8800 - or going straight for the Nokia 8800 - would be greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to all your comments, cheers!
