Excuse for my English,I bought N76 2 weeks ago and notice that the life of battery is about 55 h.,without talking,is it possible?
Am i go to change the battery in guaranty?
Thanks for replay!
For those of you who say the battery life on this sucks, I have to disagree. I first bought this phone last September and on first getting it, I charged the handset for the full 16 hours. With minimal use, I only need to charge my battery every 3 days and on the occassions when I use it heavily, I need to charge every other day.
As for the problem when connecting to the PC, you need to chnage to profile to General, (it says so in the manual)
Also, having had my phone since Sept, my phone has hardly any peeling of the chrome!
Yeh, the camera is the lamest I've seen and the sound is poor.. But that's not the reason why I bought this phone. I bought it cus I wanted a slim flip smartphone and thats what I got.
Loving this phone!
Forgot to say .. all yo that are saying it a V3 ripoff.
What the hell. The V3 is 100% uglier than this phone, and its a malfunctioning piece of crap
My girlfriend has just bought the phone.
She loves it. I like it too. It is very stylish.
For those who complain about the camera ... do you think you bought an SLR camera ... sheesh.
As far as the menus go, its not limited to the N76. I have the N95 8G and it has the same menu system. Seems to be a Nokia standard design. I do agree they aren't very user friendly, not like the famous Nokia User Friendliness of past designs.
Shes dropped it a million times on concrete with only just visible scratches.
Connecting to the computer ... not one issue, if you have get your PC looked at, its never the phones no matter what brand.
Transmitting data to and from the phone - flawless
I actually never had an issue with any nokia
trust me..dont ever buy thiz fone..extremely poor and bad..the color easily to peel.bad camera n sound..
I had a Motorola V3X which I really liked but it was stolen. So when I read the features of the N76 it seemed like the next progression adding more functionality.
I wanted a better camera and was pleased to read that it could be operated without opening the fliptop. I like the idea of Office synchronization. It was when I started to use the phone that the frustration began. I am computer engineer and far from being a technophobe. I admire good design with intuitive menus. The Nokia N76 has one of the worst interfaces I have ever encountered.
One of the first big disappointments was the camera. It has too many settings that require working thru the nested menu system to set in order to achieve reasonable pictures in all but perfect conditions so the fact that you could shoot with out opening the flip top was redundant. The button to take the picture was recessed and not easy to use anyway.
I also found accessing the pictures you took cumbersome. I liked the rotational picture display but it was the only redeeming feature.
It seemed everything you want to do on the N76 takes multiple menu option selections. I tried to see about customizing the menu and making short cuts but it was not at all intuitive and I gave up.
Connecting to the PC was hit and miss. Should just work but sometimes it simply would not recognize the phone. Loading up music and clips was awkward and cumbersome. The phone comes with the CD’s of software but there was very little I found useful.
I only had the phone for two weeks before I swapped with the girl friend but I just remember one frustration after another. I was on the verge of breaking it so switching to the girl friends Sony Ericsson was the best option.
Her phone was a bit cumbersome as it included a full querty keyboard and touch screen. I quickly got used to these and it has changed my whole outlook on what I want in a phone.
The girl friend also hated the N76 and kept asking me when I would buy another and give her back hers. Today I purchased a Sony Ericsson P1i and so far I am loving it. It has all the features the N76 but its much more intuitive and just works. Connecting to the PC was easy and office synchronization works perfectly. I was able to easily customize the front menu to include direct links to the thinks I want (something I could not work out how to do with the N76) I have uploaded some MP3s but have yet to upload any video clips.
Since getting the N76 I have only met two other people with them and both are not really happy with the phone. I don’t recommend it to anyone.
By the way, for those who complain about the peeling and random shutoffs, you've been gipped. Those phones were manufactured in China and therefore less than the quality you'd expect. I can say from experience because I previously bought a Nokia 7370 Amour collection and it came from China - outerwear quickly wore off. My friend got the same phone in Hong Kong (manufactured in Taiwan) and she hasn't had any problem with it at all.
I love this phone because of its GREAT internal and external memory SD that comes with it. I can put music on it and the sound quality is awesome. The problem is you can't completely flip open the phone when you plug in the headphones because it'll get stuck with the earphones. Other than that, I didn't find the peeling a problem because I bought a hard case for it while I was in Asia. You can go onto the Nokia site to register its manufacture number so that it'll be covered by NokiaCare. Other than that, I absolutely love the phone and its resolution is quite superb.
hey.....can any suggest me plz that how can i increase the volume of the set...i did increased the volume to full but i dont think that such a gr8 mobile phone with equalizer has such a lame volume....CAN any bdy tell PLZ?
This is the most disappointing product from nokia, they could've done better
The phone is great I got it when it first came to the market and besides the silver paint thats peeling and the weak battery, everything else is great! I was searching for a stylish flip-phone with symbian OS and this phone came out like a dream :) It's great! I don't regret buying it and I will use it till it breaks down for sure ...
Can any1 please tel me if you can watch movies with htis phone like you do with the motorola Z8 and Nokia N95 because I am going to buy it real soon..... Please Help me quick
hey guys! good news for n76..i asked the lady in NOKIA and she said that they have addressed the peeling problem because nokia made sure that the paint won't peel anymore..just make sure that when you buy your n76 you make sure that the warranty is covered by NokiaCare..

i wantt diss phone....but people tell me not 22 by!!
The colors available for model N76 are only black and red. It must be available in pink, Gold, Full silver, Blue and cute levandor... All other Softwares must be supporting like freesms via bluetooth, fullscreencaler, spycall and others.
Silly me, I ignored the gsmarena.com opinion posts and got myself an N76. Everything said about the chrome coming off is true, This is great phone don’t get me wrong, but lets face it, a big part of mobiles these days is image, and it goes from looking great, to looking lame, very quickly. Avoid this handset if possible.
