Best phone ever.... i would't trade this phone for nothing,not even a vertu phone
Even thought the 8800 and 8801 are the same the only difference it that the US version have 850 Mhz instead of 900 Mhz it still an iternational phone. Because if you go to GSM Association they use all 4 Freq. Like the 850,900,1800,1900, and UTMS 2100 for 3G.
As for the other question, even thought this phone is expensive I see this phone to be a classic design among any other phone out there. For me I like classic phone because it would never get out style and they live on forever. like a black and white tuxedo.
8800 is better right i read that the 8800 is more expensive and when its more expensive it is better but also 8800 is international phone you can use it in other country and the 8801 is US only i have i am correct from what i read please correct me if i am wrong thank for helping.
tombow i read your opinion about the phone and i think u right.well u dont know me and i too dont know u.but i understood ur opinion.i have used nokia 6600,6630,7610and samsung d500 but now i am using 8800.it is very nice and cool and the best thing about it is that it is scarch proof and the only drawback is that it is very costly compared to other nokia phones.
I just wanted to add that It's working the way it should be NO PROBLEM!!!!!!
In many ways this would be my phone for next 3 years until they come up with a version of the phone with the same quality. Beisdes that I would stick with this phone for a while. Plus, I still have 2 years warranty for the phone which makes it much better than any nokia phone warranty out there.
I just recieved my Nokia 8801 replacement today . They shipped it over night and it was great. The firmware version that I have was 3.60v now it's 3.78v. I tried to duplicate the problem on this latest firmware and it's works great!!!!
Mine is 3.28, i know its old version but i never see my phone turned off just like that by itself. Never find any problem with it..
i'll buy the phone when the lot with the improved firmware will hit the streets. i am not buying a phone that's a piece of junk that restarts when it wants to. probably 3-4 months in the future. till then , i'll stick to my 6060 and will not pull it from my pocket very often due to the shame that i have a 100 pounds worth of a phone...
i agree with that. By the way, im not experiencing any bugs or problems whatsoever with the phone. Using it for months now and it never turned off by itself. *Love my 8800 so much*
Althought the Nokia 8800 Series have minor bugs that couldn't be fixed. I still believe it's one of the most elegant phone out there and classic as best. I have tried many different phones this year and I think this is still the best one out there.
They won't upgrade the firmware and return the phone to you. They would just replace it and send you a brand new or recondition phone with the updated firmware.
You should get th replacement in 2 days with return box for your phone. I hope this help!!!!
ive had this phone since september. the one major issue with this is the battery life, it has to be charged daily with talking for about an hour, hour and half. aside from that and the ludicrous sim insertion, this has proven to be a great little phone. i have no scratches on the screen, the keys are as new, the ejection,retraction mechanism works as new, the ONLY scratch on the casing is a lil mark from when i dropped it. the mark is about 1/2 of a mm and is practically invisible. the casing really is high quality. i dont use a case for this but i dont usually carry any metallic objects in the same place with it.
all in all, bar the battery life being quite poor, no problems with it at all.
gouchboy, replacement phone?? so they're not gonna upgrade it? they'll replace it right away? for real?
Owh thx Tombow. But what if i want to upgrade the firmware? What sites do i have to visit? I know nothing on such things like this. Thx again..
To find out the Firmware on your phone.
dial *#0000# on the main screen. This trick applies to all GSM models since the Nokia 6110.
i bought mine for 925 euros. i am so dissapointed. i have to charge it at least 3-4 times on average, per working day. nothing fancy, except the looks are no doubt superior. lacks many basic functions.i have been trying to down load something even with the bluetooth, but it takes ages.over all it was my 2nd nokia phone after years of using sony erricsson. i am selling it for 500euro & buying S700 i.
