One of the worst phones ever. Crap battery life, about 50% of them came back with problems and it did pretty much nothing.
It was a classic more money then sense purchase. You'd be better off buying a Nokia 1661 or kicking old skool styles with a 510. At least they worked.

Well, I bought the 8800 Sirocco Black Arte on March 2007, loved it for 2 years and never had any problems with it, NEVER. But then I was getting bored with it so I bought the Gold Arte in March 2009, had it since then. It is Nov 11 2010 and I've been all around the world, everybody loved it and were very amazed to see a master-piece like this. My Gold Arte is still in Mint Condition.
I got a 8800 sirocco and after a week the earphone won't work!! I've asked around and everyone believes it's the flex and it would cost up to £70 to fix! I'm just gonna stick it on ebay!!
firstname.lastname@example.org, 05 Aug 2010how much is 60 and also in US i have problems with signal in some areas but other than that i ... moreHello! You wanted to know how much is 60€ in dollars? Around 75$. In my country if you know were to buy tha't how much you you pay for it.
Stefan, 24 May 2010To all people who might want one of this....luxury phones. In my country a second hand sir... morehow much is 60 and also in US i have problems with signal in some areas but other than that i say it is theniciest phone i ever had
Ok,since nowone is posting here but maybe some before buying the phone are reading opinions i will try to share the most important thing i believe are relevant for this phone. First of all it is a really beautiful phone. It is scratch resistent to a point of course. It really is a fingerprint magnet so you should have something to clean it(cotton t-shirt will do) on the black version finger marks are more visible. The screen is pretty small so if you have problemes with your eye sight this might not be the right phone for you. The slide of the phone is powered by some strong strings designer to last. The keypad of the phone is small and thin fingers are an advantage. Dont have eny expectations with the camera or using the net. Still it can open simple web pages but it takes forever. To download a song it takes around 5 minutes. The sound is not that loud but it's very clear. By the way i forgot i full casing in my country without the keypad is 70€. This phone is beautiful and i believe it's worth having one.
oj, 17 Jul 2010hello peeps.... kinda at a cross road... pls advice me... should i get the sirocco or the arte... moreThe 8800 arte appeared after the sirocco. The arte has over the sirocco a couple of advantages. A tad bigger OLED display compared to sirocco 's tft display, the bigger memory of 1GB compared to sirocco's 128mb, the arte has 3G sirocco does not, a better camera( still don't have high expectations from 8800 series camera) . I have sirocco it's a beautiful phone but what they say in the review is true you always have to carry a cleaning clooch with you. I had the opportunity to buy an arte so i was able to compare them. They both are gorgeous phones. I like very much my sirocco but i have to be objective . Go for the arte.
hello peeps.... kinda at a cross road... pls advice me... should i get the sirocco or the arte??? i have an option of these two from a nokia shop in my country...

I was talking about a hard reset because i was thinking that you have a bug. So try *#7370#. It should work on nokia. This will delete everything on your phone (songs,contacts and others) and hopelly the bug. Other than that i really don't hnow what is wrong with your phone. Did you bought it from the the black market? There are so many bastards in every country that sell fake chinese copies or damaged originals. By the way have you tried connecting it to nokia pc suite? Try to give it the the hard reset with the*#7370# maybe this will take care of your problem.

i went to one 2nd hand shop in Singapore..he checked for me says its an export set.but confirm real Nokia stuff.
but how to explain the memory wise in the phone?
Hinata65, 19 Jun 2010Have done both of that...all have...even the font changing is limited to colour..yes that legi... moreSome chinese copies answer to all the nokia codes but the chinese don't think can duplicate the specific ringtones and themes of sirocco with accuracy. Have you tried to format it? Maybe you have a bug or something in your phone. Maybe doing a reset is the solution. Try that and tell me the results.

but really wonder y the memory so little?
i can email u the pics of it if u can help..haha
Do let me know!

Some chinese copies answer to that code. Have you used the*#0000# to disply the software versions? And the fact that it sais made in finland is not an indicator. But i don't want to jump to conclusions. Maybe you installed more aplications(games,music or other things) then you might have thought .
Stefan, 16 Jun 2010What made you say that? On my sirocco the memory is 128 mb really...first i tought its a china product..(those fakes..) so i check the imei etc..where its made..all okay..its made in Finland.
but memory is definately not 128mb..pretty low..think combined around 20 odd mb?
