planning to but this fone coz i'm greatly attracted by it's design. the red one looks so appealing. but as far as my researches and readings on nokia phones, i discovered that it's great design will soon be fading, not to mention its chrome coatings... For now, i'd rather have an N80 or N81 perhaps. N80 because of its wide-range functionalities(3.15MP camera, stereo music player and visiual radio.Plus, its built-in WI-FI/ Wireless LAN for unlimited internet browsing)... N81 because of its dynamic design and a lot of features that other phones do not have... It's really great! Seriously speaking... Only that it has only a 2MP camera, but i guess 2MP is good enough. high resolution though.
As a bottom line, N76 is really good but be careful in handling this phone. It's design and menu settings are by far very unique.
to mr i just bought,
to protect your phone from chrome peeling off, just put a crystal case just like i did, but i gues you will never feel at ease and at comfort thinking that one day, aaaah my beautiful phone will shed off and metamorphosize to an ugly creature... the reason i sold my unit a week after i used while the chrome is still intact. some nokia store covers them under waranty but you have 2 w8 until stocks arrive, acrding 2 my friend who encounterd this prblm hyperbolicaly speaking you have 2 w8 until your waranty lapses... hahaha! are they realy wiling 2 replace it?!?
i do not thionk so,this is very nice and good phone whith beutiful construction,it red color is so exciting,all in all elegant and smart
From my past experiences, it is useless to take your phone for repair at any repair centre, as none of them do a good repair job!
I'll always sell my phone whenever I find any problem ...never count on repair!
i just bought this phone, and after reading these comments im scared to get it, i ordered it. can anyone give useful tips to stop chrome peeling cause i want my phone to look good for at least a year...ive had problems with nokia before. i boughta nokia 5300 and i never had receptions buttons wouldn't work, applications where self deleting, major freezing and right now it getting repaired for the second time under my one year contract....and things get lose and DONT CHANGE THE HOUSING BY YOURSELF< GET SOMEONE TO DO IT WHO WORKS FOR NOKIA OR YOUR CARRIER..haha...
so i understand nokia phones are fragile and i want to take care of this one so it wont be visiting the repair center, should i buy a protective case or what???
I do not understand you people you see and read all the time about N76 that "phone freeze up a lot and the paint peel off" but you guys considering buying it. I had one same problem then i trade it in for another phone Do Not Do Not buy this phone. Asham to Nokia making phone like this.
Kind of like the look of this phone the first time I saw the real thing in black from a distance. The only problem is when you get close to it, you will notice the cheap plastic they use!
It must be true that this phone freeze up a lot and the paint peel off as all sales from operator to electronic shop advise me to back off from this model because of the aforementioned problems!
I do not have the slightest clue as to weather these problems had been retified. I do hope so as I'm considering getting one since the price has dropped to a resonable level. I noticed there is a new color (matellic pearl white)on sale. This color may not look as sharp as the black one; cause you don't get as big a contrast as black with silver. On the other hand, the palstic in pearl white matellic does not look cheap anymore & they will hardly show finger prints!
Recent Nokia phones' platform(S40/S60) font size are small but are shown big enough for comfortable reading because of the large 2.4" screen!
ok obviously we get the point that the chrome peels u gimps dont have to make 100 posts saying the same thing
i have this phone, its the same 2mp camera in most nokias and when used in night mode they all get a greenish tinge with the photo! the video however is far far superior to my mates N80
if u want a flip phone and a nokia get this as it barely every hangs up and if it does for some of u i can only imagine what u are putting onto to make it do that as from the factory this phone has barely any problems
great looking phone, as mentioned the battery life is a bit poor but if u do ure research u would already know that
Hey, I'm planning to buy this phone but I was wondering if it has realplayer.
Great phone. More tha 2 months and no peeling yet. It has freeze just twice in 2 months (is normal in any phone when too much things are done at the same time). Excelent external sound. Good radio signal just happens that it can be heard just when it´s plugged. No complaints at all.
Ive had this phone for less than two months..i saved up and this phone...but only after one month the paint has started to chip! As days go by, the paint chips off more and more...its looks so bad..DONT GET THIS PHONE..its a waste of money..and has a crappy camera!
tis phone let us so dissapoited..evrtime jam and Langging..tht camera gt problem aso..jz tht design is classic..stupid jz go 2 buy tis phone..lolx
this phone is just awesome!!!! superb and worth it!!!! nice looks,camera,memory, everything!! everything is just perfect!
I got my original N76 back from Nokia original repairing center. They replace new housings and update the software. 'Free of charge' as my phone is with Nokia Care agreement.
About the new housings, no problems yet after 2 weeks of use.
Software version was the same what I was using before repairing so no change to software problems.
I notice that V30.0.015 software was released some days ago so I made an update to that and notice that there is also some unpleasant features on that. After pin code input, if you close the flip once phone is still starting, the whole system will be jammed and there is no any other way than take a battery out from the phone and restart that again.
It is so funny to read these stories here about the how nice and good this phone is. Internet is full of pictures and comments from disappointed users how bad this product actually is. Use 5 minutes your time for this kind of study and you can realize how big mistake you are going to make if you buy this phone.
I can send you a photos and video clips by an email from software bugs what I have found until now from this unit as well as hardware problems what this phone is having.
argh..just thinkin' bout this phone...but after all those comments...ahh~
can anybody guide me how to install the softwares with SIS extention. Most of the mobilephone softwares come with SIS extention i.e filename.sis. its camera is bit greenish and silver coated parts are peeled.
Ok guys ! what i can see ,many people experienced problems with this phone but well, i used the N76 since one month,there's no problem till now,no chrome peeling, no software error,i think that it depends on the way you use it coz this phone has not been made for sporty teenagers and careless users,and you must buy an original unit made in finland witch comes with a better casing to avoid chrome peeling coz nowadays we can even get nokia made in china but its not printed on, don't trust those on which you can read "MADE BY NOKIA" and don't buy units that cost half and sometimes a quater the price of an original one,the N76 actually on the market worth around 400USD
