It's your right not to believe mine and generally all the negative comments on this phone but how can you explain the majority of these indignated,unsatisfied,disappointed people reviews?
Don't give as an answer that excuse again that people can't afford it and is jealous.We have heard this excuse many-many times and it gets boring.
Maybe you are in the minority of happy and satisfied Nokia 8800 people but this is Nokia 8800 - user opinions and reviews board and not a board for people that actually want or like this phone.I only speak with facts and through my experiences.
Maybe the truth hurts and some people don't want to see it.
If you like to waste your money or want to show off that's your problem,but don't mislead people who thinking of buying this phone with that excuse again.As for me i try to help and inform people for Nokia 8800 major problems as an ex-owner and user of this phone.
If some people want so desperately to purchase it,this decision is at their own risk.So,people thinking of buying Nokia 8800 beware.In market there are better alternatives.Simple as that.
Like i said this 8800 "phone" is a waste of money and time.If you want a good looking casing more than £550 and not at least a decent,reliable phone go for it.This phone is a good looking expensive bibelot and nothing else.
P.S:As for the fanatics owners or people who likes this phone they should be real,see 8800 problems and not praise this phone without a reason to do so.
You can't criticize others because you like this phone or you don't want to see the major problems of this phone saying as an excuse that they can't afford it or is jealous.Jealous of what.Knowing that this phone has major software problems ,ie:switching off by itself and not only, definitely i wouldn't want to buy a faulty phone just because of its look.
PLEASE HELP ME! I think every one knows my opinion about 8800 but my friend bought one in spite of my recommendations not to do it. And the phone broke down in two weeks i think it is a software issue. The problem is the screen doesn't work, it shows only white color, yet the phone is 100% functional. PLEASE HELP US! He bought it in Hong-Kong so it is a little problem to give it back...
If you can write me a mail to ceo.at.qixen-p.com i think we need some kind of a reset code...
Again and again and again, how many times I will post this message for those people who are jealous and do nothing but envy people who owns the nokia 8800.
For the last time people "If you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen!" Again, this phone is hot, sexy, very functional, extremely good looking phone, got all the features I need and I don't have any negative comments for it...
How many people will dream to have this phone and ended up talking sh!t about it because they cannot afford it. People wake up! This phone will never go down from its thrown and listen to those people who are jealous. If you have the money for crying out loud "Buy it!" Don't leave false feedback here.
So far I bought the jx10 jabra bluetooth for my nokia 8800 and not only I have the coolest phone, I also have the coolest looking bluetooth that works great! Come on now! I saw your head turned and I can read your mind you wish you have what I have. It's alright to envy me and get jealous... really its alright...
Great phone. Unique. Hope it doesn't drop in price as i paid so much for it.
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.
Definitely i wouldn't recommend this phone.Think carefully and wisely before buying this phone.
P.S:I try not to convince anybody not to purchase this phone but to give usefull information as an ex-owner and user of this phone.
Quote:"if u truly know how to use the phone to its max ability"
I strongly disagree with this statement.This phone has low battery life,poor features,functionality,poor performance even inexistent.This is a fact.So where is the max ability of this phone? There is nothing you can do to improve this phone situation.
If you have a certain guideline to the above statement say it to us.
i am coooooooooool
because i own 8800 + Dior Homme
but i dont have money for food,,,wanna sell it soon, only month old
u are wrong bro, if u truly know how to use the phone to its max ability all phones are good phones, as for rusty>> fyi its made of stainless steel if u have learn ur science better its says won't rust.
no useful functions except call,sms.. poor camera, poorly built.. will be rusty
GSM uses 900mhz/1800mhz >> Asia
Triband > 900mhz/1800mhz/1900mhz >> Asia
3G > wcdma >> Asia + japan + korea
What does GSM means? Does that means that it can be use Globably? How about in Southeast Asia?
ok this phone is all about the design. if you want one which is a sophisticated, and unique looking phone, that has the "bare essential" features on it, this is for you. you will also need to pay a high price for it, as at the moment it's the most expensive phone on the uk market. i should know... i sell them! however, in my opinion you can buy a phone for a lot less (free on pay monthly), and you will still have a unique, and upto-date design eg. se. w900i etc. plus you'll get more value for money. things like -option to extend memory, better camera, and mp3 player. to sum up, you may aswell go for something that you can afford, has a great design and has better features.
no problems with my phone.
it does everything i need.
to the people who moan about the poor battery life i suggest this:
next time do your research before spending a lot of money on an expensive phone. the small battery in the 8800 is well known, hence why there are two supplied with the phone. if you did your research and knew the facts then you wouldnt be surprised and wouldnt feel the need to keep posting the same old messages about poor battery life ...YAWN ....
I feel this handset has no end of problems. For those of you who have paid alot of money for the phone, i feel sorry, as you may well be tied into a contract and stuck with it for 12/18 months. Every one i know who has had this phone have had no end of software issues and yes, the battery if rubbish. the only positive thing i can say is it looks good, and this is possibly the only reason people want the phone because it certainly not for it overwhelming features!
In Malaysia, the Nokia 8800 is 99% original Nokia warranty. The ones that are not under Nokia are called AP imports and to be honest are better !!!
Maybe you have the problem not others.
All Nokia 8800 is the same faulty phones either is under Nokia guaranty or not,and yes this phone is overpriced.
you know why these people kept on returning their 8800??because they are dumb to buy the non nokia guaratee the 1 under nokia guarantee i bought 5 of them for cousin all under nokia guarantee all of them have no problem and i think the price is just right
I have just returned my third 8800 (2 replacements) and got my money back. Don't buy one.
We have two of the 8800 mobile phones in which are used in our company. Both have been in the service center more than with the owners. Everytime we take them for servcie, always can see tens of these phones are there for repair. Software problem, hang up on calls at the middle of talk. not charging and etc.. to be honest it does not worth the high price at all. Better off getting a lower version and done with it. The only thing that nevers goes to service center is the good looking box for the 8800.
I've been having the phone since August 2005. Problems are quite serious, but I can live with them, once I couldn't live without the 8800. Among them, the battery consumption is high, and the battery meter, unstable, inacurate and unproportional. By "high" I mean, I don't talk much, after unpugling the phone after a overnight charge, on the morning of day one, I better be home by night on day two, otherwise I'll run out of battery on the street. Since a I like to discharge batteries before charging, this has been a serious problem for me, even though the phone has 2 batteries, one lasts 30% more then the other (the "2 days" is the best one). Other software problems includes the usual turning off for no reason, abnormal behavior. And I have to say, the 8910i was way much more confortable to carry around, and to talk on. The 8800 is a fashion statement, an exclusivity, loving it is like loving your drug addicted son, wich happens to be a model, you know you should fix him, but there is not much you can do about it.
