It's really cool. Its 1 of then phones that u would carry in ur hand all the time, total because tooo heavy. not as good the 8910i.
thats me who said for Life Timer, I remmeber after doin' a century of hours on my 6610i I reset the timer to 00:00 :-) So I think I'm right and its 107h, but any other information on this will be appreciated!
They should put up a link where people can post pics of themselves with their 8800's , at least then it *MIGHT* separate the people who ACTUALLY own one, from the people who CLAIM to own one.
Thx for the reply, i know that the different is in the band, thats what i said earlier. But i dont know why are the price difference between two phones are so high?? What do u mean by "lower frequency penetrate better reception inside buildings"?? Are you basically saying that 8801 (it has lower freq than 8800 rite) better than 8800 for the reception? But 8801 cost much2 less than 8800..I honestly hate 8801, its ugly! Even thou theres no different except the reception, lol..Thx
8801 covers different frequencies than the 8800. North America uses 850 & 1900 while 8800 only serves 900, 1800 and 1900 and the 8801 has 850, 1800 and 1900. Lower frequency can penatrate better reception inside buildings. Cheers!!!
I was gambling in the VIP room in Macau a couple of days ago (minimum bet $1,000 per hand).
There was a gambler who sat right next to me who happened to be using a Nokia 8800 (I took with me the NEC L1). I was surprised to find out he also encounter a lot of faults & different problems with his 8800. Although I had already gave up my 8800's because of all the trouble this phone model had given me; I still think that the look is quite elegant. But to my surprise, most of the PR ladies & gentleman who serve us in the VIP room said that the look of this 8800 to be quite ugly.....but most of them perfer the look & thiness of my NEC L1 design (my newest mobile toy). These PR people were so eager about the NEC L1 that I had so many questions answered.
[pls. note that these PR people always look at nice things from their VIP customers.... Vertu is a common thing there & nothing special to these people....even a lot of their customer's watch costing over US$100,000 is a common thing!]
Thx for the reply eH, yea thats helpful. What happen with Ty yesterday? He confessed, lol and that sounds funny, i mean not funny but it was good. Finally, he wants to go back to reality. Thx again Phil..
usually a handset will be given a different number or letter in or after the model number to indicate use on a particular network or area or branding, for example an 8800 in the UK may just be called a 8801 in america or an SE V800 (vodafone UK branded) in the uk is a Z800 on general release , hope this helps
Nice & elegant...sleek & seemless...It wraps up all my feeling towards this beauty...
I just bought it yesterday & this is my Precious...
Before this I had a 6230 which I feel is still one of the best phone to have at the moment...
Comments on 8800, well...besides the shorter talk time anything else seems perfect...
Anyway, does anybody have an idea to download a game named golf pro tour?
can somebody tell me what exactly the difference is between Nokia 8800 and 8801 except for the band? Why is the price is so much different? one is like 750 and 8800 is 1000.
I'm trying to find out re: Life Timer, Tho it would probably mean 10hrs 7mins 42secs, as 107hrs seems alot (I'd hate to see your phone bill :P)
Hi Kaz I gave this code *#92702689# on my 6610i, I got the Life Timer, could you tell me what is it? I think its the time I used on my phone in hours, the figure is 0107:42 it sound me like I used 107h:42mint then where is the sec portion?
Such teeny weeny buttons and I have such large fingers...... makes for difficult texting! Glad I didnt buy it, I love my Motorola V635 and just cause the 8800 looks nice from the outside doesnt mean its friendly on the inside.
Does anyone know if it's possible to install the Wayfinder software on the 8800? I want to be able to use the GPS module with the 8800.
BlueTooth is probably the easiest way of connecting your phone to the pc
yup, thats rite. But somehow i see the box and it says that the phone's made from UK. Anyway, is there any other way to connect it to computer wihtout having buy-new-bluetooth device way?
00 = it's from Finland
if you check on page 2 , I posted a msg all about this :)
Thx again for the reply kaz, i think im just gonna turn the vibrate off. I did check my iMei nuumber, it was made from "00" which i dont know where and the date is 0905, i think its last month. Later..
Can someone do me a favour and try putting in this code as I want to check other ppl's manufacture dates, as it seems i'm the only person here who's happy with his 8800
(This code will NOT damage your phone in any way)
You will get your Imei number , the actual manufacturing date and some other details..............
My Manufacturing Date is "102005", so I'm presuming 102005 = 10/2005 , as in October (This Month) Maybe they fixed some bugs in the meantime
I purchased it because of the nice looks, small size, and naturally due to the high price I assumed it to be better than the other Nokias. Unfortunately, It is not half as good as the 6600 that i use now. I have been a Nokia user and did not want to change becase of contact data transfer and because I am used to the commands. Once I purchsed the Samsung DHC 500 it was not user frindly as the Nokia, so gave it up. the 8800 is not user frindly like the 6600, the battery life is very poor (the phone heats up when you talk for 5 minute), the speaker is very weak, impossible to hear on the road even with the speaker on. Functions are not user friendly, more like the Samsung rather than the Nokias i am used to. Totally dissapointed. I continue to use the 6600 and will sell the 8800 even at half price.
