Guys i have heard that the new update is out that is said to tripple the battery life of lumia 800, so how is the new battery life now ??? Does it last one full day ??? Looking forwad to buy this phone. Currently using iPhone 4S 16 GB and thinking of buying lumia 800 as a second phone to try out windows 7.5
blurr, 27 Mar 2012hello..i just bought my nokia lumia 800..
and please please tell me how do i set my ringtone ... more
Nokia Priority Partner can set whatever u require and help out to train on this, it's a best handset, as a known fact the hardware of this phone is very excellent, that no phone is having in any brand... i hope NOKIA is trying to put more good functions with the help of some good softwares...
i have been trying to make some use of this phone for the last 4 months. it is very restrictive. Seems Microsoft is using this phone just to increase hits on their hotmail site.
2 glaring issues which should be immediately be addressed if nokia wants people to buy their phone-
1. Make a contact sync program to sync contacts with outlook;
2. nokia drive should route travel without the need for a data connection.
(Incidentally i bought the phone for its nokia drive programs).
So disappointed that this model phone doesn't allow me to use it as a modem to hook to PC to watch drama series as it doesn't have the internet sharing function like the IP phones or samsung phones. Kindly advise when can we have this function?
its better a "WP LUMIA" with a 4inch screen & dual core cpu,also a better resolution;IT WILL COME!
My first smartphone. I specifically chose for the Windows operating system. It is easy to synchronise with Windows 7. The inly downside is that you need Zune, just like Apple uses Itunes. I didn't want an Iphone partly because of the Itunes programme.
Another downside is that custom-made ringtones have to be cut down to 40 second clips with an audi enhancing programme on the PC and imported into Zune categorised as 'ringtone.'
I do however like the phone a lot. It is very easy to use, has a clear display and the touchscreen is very responsive. You cannot tap it with your nails however.
I never had any problems with the operating system. It is very fast and easy to use.
The camera is also very nice and the Zeiss lens provides crystal clear images comparable to my standard digital camera. The menus on the phone are very neatly organised and quick to access. Battery life is about one day. The latch for the charging cable is a bit sensitive and it easily breaks when charging, so be careful with it.
The phone looks nice, works perfectly and is really recommendable, especially when you are a trusted Nokia customer or when looking for a reliable Windows phone.
Hey guys i own a lumia 800 and just wondering that will nokia ever solve the problems regarding bluetooth, ringtones etc. maybe appollo update can change d8. what do u guys think????
instead of force pushing several lumia handsets which is not accepted freely by public,
Nokia should made 64gb MEEGO n9 version available all over the world including India for company double profits.
coz, million customers are genuinely interested only on meego+ ICS OS dual platforms fone.

blurr, 27 Mar 2012hello..i just bought my nokia lumia 800..
and please please tell me how do i set my ringtone ... moreZune is needed, first make the track less than 40 seconds long, then rename the genre of the track to "Ringtone", and then copy it to the phone with Zune (Zune for PC, Windows Phone Connector for Mac).
The Microsoft link below introduces it in more details:
lucifer, 26 Mar 2012thanks for the feedback
so there's no way we can work around the bluetooth thing as u know it... moreJust like iphones, some carriers involved in the development of Windows phones, so it's no doubt that the phones' structure is being made to benefit the carriers greatly by encouraging(forcing) customers to online much more frequently. Bluetooth transmission obiviously is an obstacle to their profiting approach, abandoning it seems to be unavoidable.
If you're not bound to use the phone, I think there's no responsibility to feed the telephone companies.
hello..i just bought my nokia lumia 800..
and please please tell me how do i set my ringtone to a song ? err..i mean..such as i like 'party rock anthem' song, so i want to create it as my ringtone..how ??
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2012my Bluetooth does not recognize other Bluetooth but the phone works fine!!!! please helpWindows phone does not allows you to transfer files via bluetooth just like iPhone. You have to sync from pc if you want to load songs.
how does one load music from my computer loaded music.The phone requies software that is not available in the package.
my Bluetooth does not recognize other Bluetooth but the phone works fine!!!! please help
I bought this phone as i work offshore so SKYDRIVE is NOT AN OPTION,and my company has a data restriction clause on classified material so no data can be transfered by a unauthourised third party.
so again Skydrive is NOT AN OPTION.
my PC does not see the phone as an external component so file transfers are NOT AN OPTION.
The Blue tooth function is resticted to such an extent that I can't even connect to my car, other phones unless its another lumia, so BLUE TOOTH is NOT AN OPTION.
When I saw this phone came with MS OFFICE I thought great well the only thing that i can do with this is use it a day to day diary but that means putting it in manually every time and as a spread sheet for my expenses oh and making a note. As I don't game well from a business point of view its not at all flexible
anyone want a phone!
thanks for the feedback
so there's no way we can work around the bluetooth thing as u know its one of the integral part of using a cell?
lucifer, 26 Mar 2012i have been doing some R&D on this phone.i like the way nokia has presented windows mango ... moreI've used a lumia 800 for about a month, base on what I know..
1. Basically yes, we can't. The lumia 800's bluetooth only support for transferring contacts between cells and conecting some peripheral devices like headphones. However we could still transfer musics and photos cell-to-laptop via USB cables(only musics and photos, no USB massive storage mode). Other documents like Words and Excels need to be tranferred through the Skydrive service(alternatively, it's a bit trouble in transferring the documents)
2. It does heat up slightly when charging and playing games like Spinter Cell, but acceptable, not serious.
3. Seems not bad in web browsing, it provides Desktop view and Mobile view for us to choose. However, it lacks Flash and Silverlight support. So games on Facebook couldn't be played in the browser;
just like the homepage of the Gears Of Wars 3, http://gearsofwar.xbox.com/ , it's no problem in viewing the HTML version page (Mobile view) but the Silverlight version page (Desktop view) couldn't be played;
in viewing the Fish IE Tank page, http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Performance/FishIETank/Default.html , it gets 4x fps in Mobile view, 2x fps in Desktop view.
4. Seems no different with Iphone.
5. A similar question has already been posted to Nokia's discussion forum months ago, but nobody answered (rumors said can't).
6. Although there's an option called 'theme' in the setting menu, it just provide 11 colors (magenta, purple, teal, lime, brown, pink, mango, blue, red, green and nokia blue, no custom color) for us to change the tiles' accent and 2 colors for backgrounds (black and white, no custom background). It couldn't be compared with android's. However the picture gallery app would randomly choose one of stored photos as its background when opening it.
Hope that helps. It''s always better to experience it detaily in the shops before buying one, the sales won't show the whole picture.
