Just got one of these phones, I've wanted one for some time and the opportunity came to get one very cheaply. I've dispensed of my N-gage and Sony T610 to have one of these. They look SOOO cool. One problem I have though is with the Clock, it just doesn't keep time! It is very very slow. As a result I can't use the alarm which i rely on! Also the signal is very weird, it often goes from 4 bars to none and then back to 4 again when just sitting on the desk! It often goes when i open the slide and i have to wait for signal to come back before i can make a call! Anybody else had these problems??
Still a great little phone, Nate.
heh...I've owned this phone for 4 years now and it still so cool. I don't need any of the fancy colour screens, camera and stuff. A phone that lets you call people and receive calls, wow, those were the days.
My battery (original) still gives me 3-4 days standby and light use. So if yours is less, probably time to replace the battery.
Waiting to see what Nokia will produce next for the 88xx series before I want to give this up. Has to be small, stylish, and metallic.
it suites any time,place,class etc. can it be improved to accommodate features like mms,gprs,pic/video etc.
If you don't care about those colour screen,mms or whatsoever they call hi tech thing,this is the phone you looking for.I my self have used this phone 3 times and it really feel good to hold it and use it.It's really timeless design phone.
I have a Sony Ericsson k700i which i belive is 1 of the best phones in 2004 but when i got a 8850 i coulden't careless what functions the phone had, the looks were enough to draw me in. Now i have a $1300 Sony Ericsson sitting around. THE 8850 RoCkS
Great phone... sophisticated, elegant, chic with a touch of class kinda phone. Who cares about the features? the phone simply kiss A**
I like 8850 very much..
his model very simple but looks elegan
why nokia not continue 8850 to 8850i.
with some new feature, like colors lcd, poliphonics, and can mms :)

i have a set of nokia 8850 and believe me it hurts me to say that the signal recieving of this set is to much loose and no battery timing.its battery standby time is only 35 to 40 hours it disappoint me i have a lot of faith in ur company but this set broke my feelings
I have a 8850 phone for about 4 years now and it has never let me down. Best looking and working phone around. Surely it doesn't have a camera or other gadgets, which is perfect so nothing can break down. If you need to take pictures, buy a nice camera...
Pure classe !

too small and too light. it is more a fahsion mobile than a real work tool. more made to be seen and show richness tha anything else.it will never be a professionnal mobile phone.
