I really like this phone but the only problem is that it's really easy to dent the back battery cover.
Some times you pay for the feature but some times for the looks and this is the time for the looks in N8800 case ;-)
does any1 know how much it cost to change my 8800 glass?it scratch a small scratch acctually almost invisible but a scratch make this fone ugly so i wan to change it..how much it cost in ebay?
Noikia people should think about improving the battery time of this phone.
We sell about 1400 phones per month and I think we've sold about 10 of these in the past SIX months!!! The phone works well enough. It's not better than a 200$ Nokia (nobody said it was) Fact is, the phone looks sharp, has better fit and finish than any other phone I've seen. As far as the price...The price is what keeps it out of the reach of most people and you're paying for exclusivity. You won't walk into a restaurant and see 25 other people with your phone, like when you're using, say, a RAZR.
discusting phone if u ask me nokia should wear a mask and striped jumper for the price of it
I got the 8800 phone on a upgrade, Looks great, feels great, opened the phone up and guess what it's basic.
Has to be one of the most basic phones i've ever used, It's definately not worth the money and nokia must be having a laugh.
I know Nokia can do better, if the 8810 had more features it could of been a phone killer.
Inside the actual handset is so basic it makes you want to place the phone on the floor and stamp on it a few times
If your after the looks on the phone and nothing else and you don't mind been ripped off go ahead it's your call.
Again it's just my opinion on the phone.
To chris you can buy a new keypad on ebay only place i can think of. they got keypad back cover front cover screeen all replaceable parts exactly like the original and some of it comes with tool and instruction on doing it yourself its very ez i bought a set 3weeks ago almsot a month fix'd it myself. but the replacable part are expensive i bought it for $134 usd came with tools instruction and the parts look in to it
io bought this nokia 8800 4 months ago.it si nice but the only problem,big problem nobody is fixin the phone in the usa.and one of the buttons broke down and nobady can fix it.big problem.and i paid 1000$.very stupid..please somebody knows where too fix it???
this phone is beautiful, if you want something thats sleek and classy, this is the one, dont complain about battery life and functionality, cause this phone wasnt made for that, if thats what you looking for buy a p910i or any other pda
so damn i go buy a 8800 and 8801
ill keep 8801(box) and keep 8800(phone) and put 8801(phone) in nokia 8801(box) and sell it back for full price.
The only difference between the 8800 (europe & Asia) and the 8801 (US & canada) is that the 8800 works on GSM 1900, 1800, and 900 and the 8801 works on GSM 1900 , 1800, and 850.. As for the difference in the prices of them both, i wasnt aware that there was a difference. If there is, its probably due to the different markets they're being sold in.. i'm just guessing here.. so who knows!!
just posted posting again so beside features is there something that tells u this is 8800 phone on the phone???
you responded to my other comment but for instinct if i buy a 8800 and a 8801 of corse 8800 mroe expensive then i jus dump the 8801 phone into 8800 box and sell the 8801 as 8800 price and keep 8800 and 8801 box like it matters just a box.... and i keep the better phone there nothing that said the origin of phone??
Totally agree with Kenny. I guess, those who cant afford it can go with another phone. Don't bad talk this phone.
Why is there so much talk about this phone?!.. this forum has so many posts and so many heated arguments.. what is it about this phone that brings out the primal beast in people! My God man!!.. is this phone THAT powerfull?! All of you that hate on this phone should ask yourslf that question!! Can a Rolls Royce go from 0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds.. no! Is it packed full of brightly lit LCD screens connected to DVD players... NO! Does it have a supercharged motor kicking out 500+ horses..no!!.. well so much for specs!! The same reason why we love the Rolls is the same reason why we love this phone.. it does what its supposed to do so much better than the rest, and does it with absolute undeniable style. To my fellow 8800 owners.. Cheers! .. to everyone else.. live a little and treat yourself to somethin nice... if the price turns you off, all that means is that you're not a Rolls Royce type of person.. nothin wrong with that. There's room in this world for u too! ;-)
.. the 8800 and the 8801 is the same phone!.. the 8801 is the name given to the models being sold in the US and Canada, 8800 is the name for the ones solf in europe and everywhere else.. all the same features and everything else exactly the same
