my parents has this phone, my dad have the black one while my mom have the silver one... nice to look at though...
Crap phone for an expensive price, hwo ever has the 8800 are complete mugs
And guess what, the gold versions out which makes the silver 8800 look like a piece of tin.
owners of the 8800 have been ripped off and hope u slide breaks
I still love it 100%. Great battery life, recharge only require a maximum of 1 hour........unlike other phones which takes 2.5 to 3.5 hrs. for a complete charge.
The 8800 looks quite good but I strongly advise people to keep well away.
I've had nothing but problems with this 8800 handset.
The slide always breaks and low voice so when your talking tro somebody u can't hardly hear them unless they are shouting at you
I really dislike the phone, the phone was meant to be waterproof do I went swimming with my 8800 and it stopped working.
It is not waterproof and it also isn't scratchproof neither
Azad from Phones 4u told me this handset was waterproof and it has 3g
I soon found out this isn't true so I sent my handset back.
They wouldnt take it back because they said it was wet due to misinformation given to me
It's a very dissapointing handset and it makes me want to puke, please keep well away from the 8800 it's a true ripoff
Koureas my apologies, i've just read your post and I fully 100% agree with you there.
8800 is overpriced and is getting very old, the design aint that good niether it looks old
Koureas you really need to read peoples comments properly then you may have a true understanding on what people are trying to say.
Most of the people on here including myself have owned a Nokia 8800 that's why they are making there feelings clear of the ladies basic handset that's well overpriced.
So please be clear Koureas or maybe you need to learn more English before making actual comments and learn to read properly.
Nokia 8800 is a overpriced handset with basic functions and it's getting old and boring now so please keep away from the handset there's loads of handsets out there that laugh at the basic 8800
I still love it 100%. Although I also encounter the same short battery life(still last me a full day with a lot of business calls), but a full recharge only require a maximum of 1 hour........unlike other phones which takes 2.5 to 3.5 hrs. for a complete charge.
In regard to some previous posts about the design and style of 8800 equal the price of it,this thought can't be more wrong.
Expensiveness is not always synonym with design,style or quality.
Nokia 8800 is an overpriced product without a reason.This phone has nothing to show or you have nothing to expect from it.
If you want a bibelot or something to show off this phone is for you.
If you want a decent, reliable or good featured phone this Nokia 8800 is not for you.
In market there are better alternatives.Simple as that.
Nokia 8800 is an expensive and not worthy phone.Nokia should be ashamed for this rip off.
I bought this phone from the first day of its release, expecting that this Nokia 8800 as an upgrade would be better from the previous 8-series models but i was wrong .(Even 8910 is better and classic than this).
I used both versions 3.60 and 3.78 and none of them work properly. Surely this "phone" has low battery life,functionality,performance and many software problems. It's an expensive and not worthy phone.I wouldn't have a problem if it was a decent,reliable expensive phone.
I agree with the most negative reviews on this phone.
As for the fanatics owners of this phone they should be real,see 8800 problems and not praise or defend this phone without a reason to do so,saying again and again the same cheap excuse that people is jealous and can't afford it.
This phone was a waste of money and time.Believe it or not.
I have brought a total of nine(9) 8800 in the past year, I am very happy with my very last one(3.78v) because it is absolutely faultless(unlike those other seven which I did encounter different small problems. The other one was a present for my mother; nine months ago.....she is very happy & still using it).
I dropped mine on the ground(cement) on a rainy day 3 days ago & the four corners of the metal case was all damaged. I am waiting for my 10th 8800 to arrive next week.
I buy mobile phones all the time just for fun
I have tried so many of them, but to me; this 8800 from Nokia is still the best!
First of all, this phone is made from steel.
Secondly, this phone is delicate but tough......,so Nokia did not say if this phone is meant for male or female. It's none of your business who it's meant for.........it's just not for jealous people like you!
So your are one of those poor mobile phone repairer who can never afford a 8800!........I am so sorry for you!
This is still the best looking, best design & best build quality phone around........for ladies & gentleman who can afford it!!!!!!!!!

It`s steel not titanium....maybe, you havn`t seen the phone, but keep posting bad opinions....
I`m happy with mine...100%
Best regards to all 8800 users...
Have to disagree with you there, The nokia 8800 is a basic phone, all you are paying for is the titanium case.
Open the nokia up and it's basic, so really Nokia made a titanium case placed a very cheap handset inside it and
Been out too long and there's too many handsets out there which laugh at the 8800
The features are horrible on the 8800.
For those who disagree all you have to do is read all the negative feedback on the 8800 tin phone there's loads i've been having a right laugh.
8800 is for those who like to be truly ripped off, handset was intended for the rich but the handset is basic
I've had friends who had these handsets mainly girls.
The buttons are small so the real man out there would keep well clear from the 8800.
Handset is a womens phone
Doesn't matter how wealthy you are, the 8800 is a ladies phone with small buttons that is overpriced.
The cheaper phones out there are worth more than the Nokia 8800
The Nokia 8800 aint worth it
The 8800 is a ripoff and definately not worth the price
Inside the 8800 is a basic cheap phone, open it up, u be thinking to yourself why did I buy this basic phone
To Ben 2006-05-30 15:05 RNFL ,
You can buy & use the other cheap phones, cheap cars etc. This phone is definately not for you!
Thankyou for your Austrilian comment which made me understand the mentality of your people!
Over priced or not really depend on who you are talking to!!!
I am wealthy enough, so to me the price of this phone is cheap!
To the normal people who is jealous of the wealthy who own this phone........too bad!
Anyway, this phone "powerful" is made for the rich & famous!!! It does not suit & not meant for the cheap people!!!
