hey guys instead of worrying with chrome peeling of issue. why dont G-MASK it?! I think its the best way to protect your phone BEAUTIFULLY from peeling off... if you dont what g-mask is, search the web hehehe! anyway g-mask is somehow like a plastic material with difrnt designs to choose from, it is thin but very durable and protecive, i dont know if its gona work with n76, but it really did with my n92.
I bough my N76 in May 2007 (after waiting for six months for its release here in SA) as a substitute for my Razor, which was really outdated at that time but still good...to my dismay the N76 is KAK to say the least! For starters the built quality is questionable, the fake chrome finish on my N76 is pealing faster than CCX!!! And there are no skins for sale yet here in SA(08/11/07). Lastly I still can not get over the fact that it does not charge when coupled to a USB....lazy Nokia designers!!!!!!
I ve had this phone for two months and i tell you there is NO peeling. This is by far the best phone ive had.
i m a phone sales and i was just reading ur opinions of this phone and some suggestions and questions...many or all of them can be solved with some common sense...
firstly, ppl who buys this phone purely buy it for the look of it and it's 'sort of' alternative for motorola style phone but under the nokia brand. it's for those customers who likes flip phones and nokias and wanna stay away from motorolas. it's not meant to beat N95's, N80's or other phones for the features, if u want features, why don't you get those phone instead???
yes the chrome chips, but don't all colors come off when you put them in your pocket with the keys and coins?
1. don't put in ur pocket in the first place, no contact, no scrach, no peeling off, no damage
2. put a crystal cover on it, it may look crap but at least the phone will be mostly untouched. accessory is just an accessory, it suppose to either enhance, beautify, or protect, who cares if the case breaks/scratches?
3. put in a phone sock. this will probably be the best solution as the material of the sock will act double as a finger print wiper. since the material of the N76 is very prone to finger prints, much like on the navigator, the phone sock will easily compliment this flaw
i have purchased n76 and its a big mistake by me .three time it got repaired and still sucks .my sister have razr 2 v8 and working superbly .and camera is better than n76
For those who do not believe to this chrome peeling, please check these sites
Being an ardent Nokia user I was quite intrigued by the N76
I had this phone for almost 2 months and it left me with me a feeling that buying the N76 was the biggest mistake of my life.
Where do i start? This is a phone that has an amazing design, great features BUT dismal performance. Some of the issues you will face with the handset for sure are
1] Peeling of the housing
2] Unstable software which leads to constant rebooting (Its like the phone has a mind of its own). A call to the Nokia contact centre will only result in advice to do a master reset or book it for repair.
3] The music player is pretty good but quite often you will hear a weird buzzing sound and then the phone does what its best known for; Reboot.
4]It refuses to play any videos without rebooting (Sigh...here we go again)
These are issues that i have identified with other N76 users as well. So it cannot be termed as a one off case.
All in all from my experience I feel this handset is a waste, both monetarily and in terms of customer satisfaction. I managed to recover only 44% of the original market price.
I have now moved onto Sony Ericsson and believe me I am happy.
So if any of you are even thinking of buying this handset, BANISH THE THOUGHT!!!!
Does anyone have this phone in America? I might be buying my friend's N76 and it's from Asia I believe - I saw a Nokia Asia registration card in there. I want to know how easy it would be to set up all the necessary EDGE settings so I could use this w/ a data plan w/ Tmobile. If Ibought an american version of this phone, all that stuff would probably be built in right?
Also, could I tether with this phone and my MacBook Pro laptop?
