overpriced piece of junk.
scratch resistant glass? gimmie a break, Sony Ericssons in general have tougher screens that the 8800, no glass is scratch resistant.
anyways, too overpriced, heavy and dodgy tiny keypad.
a friend of mine already needs to take insurance out on it - junk.
just got this phne today for 500 off a m8. and it is fantastic!!!!! i love it!! wt do u guys think
Does anyone know which theme is used in all of Nokia's marketing? the one thats mainly blue with all the white lines through it. I cant find it on the phone at all?
What is the current software version for this phone? Nokia's website says 05.21 but when i check my phone version (*#0000#) it comes up as v06.40 dated 10-03-08
Does that mean i have a version nokia havent updated to there site yet or has it gone back to version 5 for some reason?
Since I brought my 2nd 8800 Arte from my service provider, they will exchange mine with another new one ... just hope that this time I have better luck! I should have my new one by the end of this week! By the way, I ordered one 8800 Sapphire Arte as a present for my mom's birthday ... hope she will like it as she is still using her old 8800(silver color one)!
i used to have a 8800 and thought nice phone, but battery life was really bad, i had to charge it everyday. What is the battery on the arte like?
some people here just because they can't hold on to this beautifuly designed handset,they just moaning about,get a grip.......
does the phone coem with headphones?? or is there a headphone jack or something....or does it use the headset it comes with?
I have had issues with quality on mine too. First one had dust behind the screen out of the box and the backing of slider not glued down and scratching against the power button. So took it back and got another one. No dust this time but the backing of the slider is still not glued properly. I'm taking this one back too.
I'm on my 2nd 8800 Arte which I brought yesterday.
My 1st one had problem with the slider...
My new one had more problems....1.- I can't change the font color! 2.- I had the slide animation turned on; but there is no sound except picture! 3.- I tried to restore the factory setting a couple of times, but even after waiting for over 15 minutes, the phone show "restore setting failed"!
My conclusion is that recent Nokia product do not have proper QC(quality control)!
Almost everything about this 8800 Arte is nice, except those tiny fonts & icons which are always difficult for user starting from around age 40 onwards to read easily/comfortably!!!
Really starting to wonder what is the target age of any recent 8 series product???!!!
Pure Class... glad to have an 8*** series phone again after selling my first 8800(basic silver).
Its well made, feels great and has beauty that will surely stand its test in time. It doesnt attempt to compete with any other phone out there, its a phone, that does everything you need a phone to do - very well(plus theyve finally given it a decent camera!!!) Havent quite worked out the tap-to-see-clock thing yet, dont quite see the reasoning there, but its still a fabulous phone.
Get it, Insure it, Flaunt it!!!
Does anyone know how to get the settings for email and multimedia messaging for the 8800 Arte? I have At&t. i live in the states. i can't seem to get the settings any where. Thanks
well, i just bough an arte, it is very very comfortable when you are working with it, and everything in that is so good, i love it ;)
