Kaz! I just totally agree with you. Thats rite. At first, i was in dilemma to. Whether to pick all features phone or best design ever. Im so confused what to choose but after long thinking that maybe this beatifully design phone is not so good at all but i bought it because this phone is so sexy and all! And now, im not disappointed at all! Its actually perfect, just love it so much!
To assign ringtones to different ppl we have to create groups which suppose to be in the menu --> contacts --> and groups. Then create groups with different ringtones then you have to assign ur friend into these different groups, hope that'll help..
Hey C-me, how are you?
What do you mean exactly by assigning a tone for sms group?
I have a different tone for sms messages
a different tone for Mms messages
then diff tones for Ringing and caller groups (i.e friends)Though I don't think I really understood your question :/
I'm very much agree with Kaz as he described the camera features coz I believe as I've iPod nano for music so I don't need memory card in 8800, as I've DSC-F828 for pic so I don't need high resolution camera in 8800.
Kaz could you tell me plz if I can assign different ring/tone for SMS groups as we are able to do it with caller groups?
At the end of the day it all boils down to just one thing... "CHOICE"
Do you have to buy the 8800? No..
Are there cheaper phones with more features? Yes..
Knowing that this phone has certain faults, would you still consider buying it? Yes/No/Maybe...
See... it's about Choice and what you choose to buy or not buy as the case maybe. I chose to buy the 8800 and i'm glad I did as i'm very happy with it and was willing to part with my cash knowing that there are possible faults. Nokia probably realise that with or without faults people still buy it. So I guess people like me are to blame, as we accept that things may or not always work how we want them to, but buy them nonetheless
This looks really sleek and nice, is made of expensive titanium etc etc....but at the end of the day, Nokia seem to be relying on that to carry a phone where the features really aren't that special compared to a lot of other phones out there. Every Nokia I've ever had has had faults with it - turning itself off when you try to do certain things, rejecting the SIM card for no reason at all, battery life becoming really rubbish when you've had the phone coming up for a year. I'll be sticking with a nice reliable Sony Ericsson instead of spending money on what is, after all, a bog standard Nokia in a nice case.
I know what you mean about the 8800's ringtones, they are ummmm a bit much, so I just downloaded songs onto mine, and chose different ones for Ringing/Group Caller/Sms.
It's probably best to look for a normal ringtone online, and then send it to your phone via Bluetooth, or if you know someone with a different model Nokia, they usually have normal ringtones, ask them to send it to you by Bluetooth
When in "MENU" press the "Options" button....
will open another option "Main Menu View"...
click on this option....
Then it will show
now you can choose whichever you prefer.
I just got my 8800 yesterday and really like. however, can someone please tell me how to change the menu display to a grid from a list i cannot figure this out. (i assume you can...) and also where to find a "ring ring" tone for this phone, the others are nice but a bit embarressing on a crowded train in the morning!! thanks
Basically the camera on the 8800 is 0.6 megapixel, which is not very good considering you can buy phones with 2.0 megapixel for 1/4 of the price of an 8800, having said that, the camera on the 8800 was better than I was expecting it to be.
I guess what i'm trying to say is...
If you want to buy a phone which looks amazing, but camera isn't all that brilliant, then pick the 8800, However if you don't really care much about the look of the phone, and plan on using the phone to capture pix of your kids doin funny stuff, which you cherish forver, then you might wanna look elsewhere, and choose a 2.0 megapixel phone.
If you read the 8800 review here, there are pics that were taken using an 8800, so you can decide for yourself :)
Hope this helps.
i thought 0.5 megapixels means its not as good? like phones now such as samsung d500 among others have brought out cameras with 2.0 megapixels which is meant to reproduce better quality in pictures,i just like this phone and am thinking of getting it but i use my camera quite a lot taking pictures when out with kids etc wud like a decent camera on phone so can put pics on my computer. anyone who can tell me more about the camera or c-me if u could explain more about it then id b happy buying this phone
HS-12W is still pre-order on couple of web sites, I believe its not yet launched in any part of the world.
can anyone tell me what the camera on this phone is like??? i have a 6680 at the moment but i read this phone (8800) only has a VGA camera which is about 0.3 megapixels or so i believe. I dont really know much about specs of phones but on my 6680 the front camera is a VGA and the quality of it is not that good so if anyone can tell me if VGA means that the camera wil b same quality on 8800 or not it wud b much appreciated.
i think it's the coolest phone nokia relased in the last 2 years...and before it was the 8910i,and before it was the 8910..and before that..the 8850...
theese were just fashion phones...real phones...why do we really nead a phone except for talking...if u want photos and videos..buy a camcorder...if u want mp3 bui an ipod,or a psp,if u want symbian...bui a palm...whatever u'r phones qualityes would be...remeber that theese nokias will always be better...
I think he doesnt understand that we're talking about him. Or he likes to be the subject of ppl and it makes him even more "fantasized". So i think the best way for us to handle this unrealistic person is by ignoring him. The more we complain about him, the more he talks BS..Cheers for all
Ty will you PLEASE PLEASE stop posting all your rubbish here, we are ppl who want to talk about serious phone releated stuff, NOT how Beautiful your make belief life is. Dude, do me a favour and go back to "Fantasy Island"
I received instructions from Nokia on how to activate the digital signature feature on the 8800. I was able to make several purchases - very cool!
Also revised the docking station for the 8800 in my Beemer so that it automatically folds into the center counsol when I park the car. (A necessary feature for open air parking - my friends are amazed!)
Finally, took my beautiful wife to the movies at the local mall and spotted a pre-teen girl with a 8800 - and I thought I was the only father to spoil their daughter!
