I love the 8801 it's sheik phone,BUT the battery doesn't last.NOKIA your phone is hot but work on your battery!
For those who owns Nokia 8801 or 8800 Nokia told me that they have the new firmware version for the phone which is 4.0v. All you have to do is to give them a call a they would give you a replacement phone within 2 days. I hope this help.
A very elegant phone at the same time, its cool. Juat got it a few weeks ago and the girls are already flipping when they see it. The only draw back is, it keeps turning off and on as it likes. I guess the Nokia guy wasn't lying when he said it was the software problem, cause I can see that alot of other people also have the same problem with the 8800. cheers, Arthur.
You know what? All new phones, if you use it for the first time, it will surely malfunctioning coz it is new, right? Like my 6630 and n90, when I first turned it on, after a few hours, they restart suddenly, and the ringtones (built-in) are cut and cannot be played whole. But after a day, they come to normal. well, as a matter of fact... your phone is in good condition. Just wait for the phone to be opened in such environment first (using your phone)
the coolest phone i ever had,
the best of the best,
it has camera , bluetooth, radio, mp3, and lots more you've image,
you wont regret when you buy this magnificent celfone..
Hello!i bought this phone one month ago and i have a problem.it turns off and on whenever it likes...the club nokia told me that it is a problem with software and they are waiting a new software without problems..i hope that's true because it costs a lot of money!!
i have observed that most nokia flip or sliding phones frequently turns on off because it has a ribbon based flex
No memory card slot?WTF .so xpensive and no card slot .
WORK HARDER ,MR Nokia
i've had this phone for about a month, not impressed! it keeps going off n coming back on as it feels like! gotten so bad i've even switched phones, since it has become a nuisance..
do i have a virus or something?
pls someone tell me!
starting to feel it was a waste of money!!
This is a fanstastic phone. Girls love it. I got it mine from www.mobile-world-inc.com for $455 and I'm very proud. This is the sexiest phone ever.
I have two Nokia 8800 and both of them have serius problems. They turn off as you speak (when fully charged)When i press the bottom arrow and it goes to the picture mode it gets blocked. I own a Vertu and it runs on a nokia program and I never had any problems. The thing is do we have to spend over 6000 euro to get a proper phone? Also before the Nokia 8800 I had the Motorola RAZ the silver and the black the same problems. Finaly I think we should not send the phones for repair I think that the Companies should fully refund their clients in 30 days if they have problems!

Dear members !!
i want to buy the nokia 88XX series phone, but why do some people say the 8801 is a cheaper less functional phone then the 8800 ? I would like to buy biy the 8801, but not after they said that….
So what's the difference between 8800 and 8801?
I thought the only difference was the band.
Can anyone tell me the difference?
