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!
wat bluetooth headsets are compatible to this phone??
thxs for ur time =]
I got my 8800 2 months back, and the handset just hangs in the middle while doing anything.
Be it calling..Smsing..
The care centeres tell me that its a high end phone so Software is not easily available and all crap.
Some one has a similar experience.
I better change my brand loyality to some other celll phone provider like SONY.
Hello to all current Nokia 8800 users:
Does anybody know how to get the Nokia 8800 Software via the internet (i.e. downloaded?). I recently bought the Nokia 8800, but after my young nephew went through the box, the software CD has been misplaced (thankfully, the phone is still with me).
I'm located in East Java - Indonesia. Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers to all, and greetings from Indonesia!
I can send stuff to the phone via bluetooth from my computer, but I can't seem to send stuff from my phone to my computer by bluetooth
what is the problem"?
this phone is the crappiest phone ever..ok, i admit it has a nice look & all but seriously, the fonctions are bad ! the battery life is very back, i have to charge it almost every 5hours ! and sometimes, it doesnt wanna charge. the camera is crappy ! for the price you pay, i think you can get better. also, the reception is bad. so this phone, i give it an 6/10
If looks is all your looking for, this phone plays its part. Its something everyone wants;and for those complaining about its functionality, they dont have one.
ive had the 8800, n90 and a few others. I found that the 8800 (as everyone may now know) a crappy battery life. It was probably one of the best phones i've had, so i've passed it onto by lil bro who really wanted it. now im using the 6233 which not only looks like half a 8800, but has kik ass features and the battery is still going!!!
but yeah, the 8800 is a sweet phone... many people were too cautious about using my phone, let alone touching it
This phone is wicked, Alright it has not got the memory, so what. when you got the looks memory does not matter. and the design of this phone is the best. A**********
Eric, for a start this phone is chunkier and bigger than a d600. I am sure people would prefer to buy a D600 for 150 quid, than a 8800 plus ipod for 700 quid; unless they have too much money and they dont know what to do with it, which is like handly noone. But i do admit ur rite in that nokia will get a few sales, from people who want to show that they have money. But considering how much money was spent by nokia to develop this phone, nokia have got it completely wrong, and infact have lost money bringing this phoneonto the market.
yeah the shop price is quite high indeed :) ... any suggestions or offers to get a new one a little cheaper :) could also be a Sirocco edition. thanks
Sayinthen (RGS)- Yeah you could do that, but this phone in gangster. . .
Buyign it for the sake of buying it, its just cool. . . Some tiems peopel get caught up in the features of thier phone. . .Then they buy an ipod n relaise they dont want a chunky phone to do a few extra things n jsut wnat a small good lookign phone that will keep its price and be gangsta...its way kooler to slide than a d600 And the fact that you could buy 3 d600 for the price of this one tells you anotehr thing
does anyone knows how can i get new themes for this phone? where can i download them? thanx!!
I work at a phone shop... both the 8800 and the sirocco are aimed at people who want to look good and they want people to know they have a lot of money.. as for the price... the rrp is waaay above cost price, it is VERY negotiable :d
This phone is a joke. It is seriously overpriced, and i swear my D600 both looks better and performs better than this phone. Noone in the right frame of mind would buy this phone! You could buy 3 top range phones, i.e D600, N80, E900, instead of buying this phone. It would be like a 100 times more worth it. What has this phone actually got that makes it very special?
