this phone has to be taken off the market.it gives nokia a bad name.its battery is whack..music player hopeless..low memory...i advise to recall the phone..though its already too late.u'all already took our money.
the battery life of this phone really sucks...nokia pls can we all using this phone send it and get our mone back...cos i bought it very expensive price
this phone is very classy and sexy . so if u wanna show off infront of anyone u better use the 8800 sirocco.
I've had my Sirocco for bout 18months now and i've experienced all the probs that everyone has listed. The battery life is low, theres scratches on my "scratch resistant" screen, my fone turns off randomly, my charger broke, music player is crap, camera is crap, video is even worse. And last week the power on the phone completely went, after switchin on the fone the screen went blank and turns off again, so had to send it off to fix, costin me £45 and don't know when i'll get it back and if it will be working again, apparently it's got something to do with the software. If i'd known all this then i wud have never wasted my money in the first place. I'd say it's more for business use than anythin else, but i felt privlidged to own one
Good points: Looks sexy and i once stored 6,000 text msgs in my inbox! (",)
Overall, i wouldnt recommend buyin the phone, its overly priced and is all hype. It was hard to get one in the first place n then a couple of months later they release a gold one for nearly a grand!! From now on i'll prob stick to Sony Ericssons
I bought this phone when it was first released, and payed a ridiculous amount for it. After 2 months of using it, it stopped working!! (It would 'freeze' then switch itself of after the nokia logo and jingle). I was informed i would need to have it reflashed, apparantly quite a common problem occuring in these phones.
I had data which is invaluable to me, stored upon my phone, which i could not afford to lose. I am told if i reflash the phone all of the data shall be deleted! And there is no other way for me to save it, as unlike other phones, the Sirocco does NOT allow for data cable usage. (There is no port of connection, or cable available).
The only way to save data is via bluetooth, but as it freezes after the Nokia logo, i am unable to use this function!
So i recommend to anyone, do not buy this phone, if you do then do NOT store vital data upon it!!
other than that, it does look amazing!
my battery life so short...5 mins on the line and its already low bat. and i only got it for 3 day. is that normal?
I have used this phone for a year now and still love this phone, never seen one like it! This is one way is a smart business phone and also a classy phone which every one loves and would love having it (10/10 NOKIA)
For Lorraine B...this code thing appears when you try to connect to a phone right? If so..the thing is easy..when the phone asks for the code type in your PIN code..and then the other phone will ask for the same code..type your PIN there too..this is how the two devices are paired up and you have it in your Bluetooth devices list. Hope my advice was of help!
Can anyone help me with the Bluetooth. it keeps asking me for passcode, is there anyway I can get in to unlock a code that i never created in the first place. Cheers
P.S. have tried resetting Factory selection and 12345 code

Best phone i think iv ever had....it had everything i wanted and i had well over 3000messages, 100's of photos and about 30video clips!would be better with a flash and memory slot! but the cover protects the phone really well and is hard to get scratched and chipped and the accesories you get with the whole are ace...phone dock, leather case, cleaning cloth and a tiny bluetooth head-set!! such a shame my friend dropped it in her pint : (
