I had the phn for about 3 months now with no problem since I upgraded the phone 3.78v. I think most or all the people who are having issue are from Nokia 8800 not 8801v. That's very interesting!!!!
Agreed, battery life is not great and the voice quality is low (I have a slight hearing disability and I have to use the earphones to hear properly).
i had no problems at all with V3.78 firmware. maybe i am lucky to get a good one which doesnt crash and restart and have other problems as stated. bottom of the line is, if evryone elses 8800 is working perfectly like mine is, i dont think there many negative points bout it to be given. just a phone made by nokia, was a phone, been a phone and will still be a phone. not a camera or mp3 player...
The differences between 8800 and 8801:
8800: made in germany, 900/1800/1900
8801: made in korea, 850/1800/1900, only for us market
I have nokia 8801 and I don't have any software problem at all, the battery lasts more than one day. Just make sure at the first time you charge the battery, it should be at least 8 hours long.
I read all opinions about Nokia 8800. What can I tell? In my opinion is the most beatiful mobile phone in the market. About software problems I talk with customer service and I think the problems find a end. I have a Nokia 8800 and I have no problems
Anyone started to encounter this problem with their 8800?(although i have a lot of problems with this phone)
Had my phone for 4 months now(version 3.78),and it seems to be happening frequently now.When i dial out or receive a call,i can't hear anything at all. I've asked the people who ring me if they can hear me, and they can...but for me, silence.No real way to fix it,i just keep turning the phone off and on again,including taking the battery off until it eventually works.
The latest 8800 firmware is 3.78 from last October. Although some bugs are fixed others remain (the phone still crashes, the voice clarity is still low,etc).
The new firmware 3.78 in reality doesn't solve the major problems of this phone.
Nokia produced a faulty,joke phone and that is Nokia 8800.
Think carefully before buying this "phone".
I suggest that who had problems with their 8800 tell us what version of software the phone use. I read that the phone who use the "v 3.78" version, has no problem at all, only the old software version have problems
can anyone, please tell me what's the difernce between 8800 and 8801? (if there is any).
Hi everybody. I really love this phone. I want to buy it and I have the money for it, but I'm afraid to do that because the opinions I read. What the hell's happening? Half of you had serious problems with it, while the other half really enjoy this phone because it works very good. Is this a problem with the soft, or what. After I read about 20-30 opinions I start to belive that buying it, is just like a russian roulette. Can anyone (who has it), tell me what's the problem? THANKS
The phone is too good,sexy.BUt the price is very bad..it costs too much
I have no idea about this on I want to buy it not sure how good it is all I know it worth alot of money. with that said nokia has served me well in the past.
get the latest fireware.
thats your problem for it to switch off and on automatically
this phone is absolutely useless...reception is lousy...and the key pad is not very comfortable to use...my opinion...Nokia you screwed up on this one...
I have had my 8800 for four months now and am really pleased with it. I have had Samsung phones in the past among others but the 8800 wins it for me Easy to use and looks great. The scratch resistant suface works too! Personally I think that the 8800 is a good buy.
Ive driven to russia to get the black 8800 it goes well together with my black lada 110.
This phone is not capable even for the main purpose of its creation which is to make calls.From time to time is switching off by itself,so you have to be anxious when you have a phone call conversation or when you try to make a call.I wouldn't recommend this phone.
I don't know for you people but i wouldn't want to buy a faulty ,unreliable phone just because of its look.This phone is useless,not worthy phone and has nothing to show except high price.
i tried out my phone yesterday by calling a friend of mine for 90 minutes, and it still have 1 block of battery left. after finishing the 90 minutes chat, the phone was hot, and battry low warning start coming up, but that's after 90 MINs of calling. as for standby, simon ki, i had this phone to last for almost 55 hours before charging, with occasional calls. if u mean the phone cant standby for 8 hrs, i think you had a faulty phone or battery, because mine seems not to switch off by itself, neither the battery last only 8 hours. i always had the other spare battery on standby just incase the one in the phone flats out, but it seems the phone can last till i get home everyday and put it to charge.. just fanta-bulous...
