noidea please when you get a solution to the wobbly back cover let me know mine is also killing me.
Also its annoying to see soe of your videos displayed under photos.
yeah mate there are deffo more + points than - ones.
I used the fm transmitter today for 3-4 hours in the car and it really is first class with a good strong signal.
My back cover is terrible though and i'm working on a solution to it myself for my own piece of mind because it is driving me crackers!

Dr Adedoyin, 16 Oct 2008I think in a roundabout way you have come to what am trying to say. Some networks won't allow ... morethe 'no gateway reply' problem is different with payment WiFi network
when you are on the hotspot which cost you to connect (payment WiFi)
Im sure you'll still get the signal & be shown the home layout of the WiFi server
then you have to enter the password you've bought before
but when it says 'no gateway reply'
I make sure that there is a mistake on the WiFi server
its not about your phone
dont be worry..
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970there are many reason I have to tell you why you have to choose N78
but the important thing is that N78 has WiFi,better OS,16m colour screen & 3,2mpx camera

buy 5610,5320 or wait for 5800

Nokia n78 or Nokia 6600 slide... i like both th... moreThe Nokia 6600 is an attractive well built feature which provides the ability to make calls, text, take photos, and listen to music. However, the N78 takes things to a whole new level integrating with the mobile web and incorporating more advanced software and hardware. The N78 is clearly the more advanced device to recommend. If all you want is a basic solid phone then just get a Nokia 6300 and save money. However, if you want advanced technology the N78 is highly recommended.
This is an amazing device which is a marvel at integrating different technologies to provide advancedc mobile computing. For anyone who purchases mobile devices on the basis of technological excellence as opposed to following a fad (such as a bizarre willingness to pay a 40% or so premium on a mobile purely because it is touchscreen although the 5800 XPress will change that) the N78 represents stunning value.
noidea, 15 Oct 2008Thats mean the server didnt allow you to enter the network
try another WiFi network to connectI think in a roundabout way you have come to what am trying to say. Some networks won't allow you unless your are a paying subscriber. In this case you need their configuration after subscribing. On my side of the world thats all i get and only one wi fi network. Maybe kim is in same situation as myself. In two weeks time, i'll be travelling out. Will see the difference in other areas.
i am little bit confused abt which set to buy? Nokia n78 or Nokia 6600 slide... i like both the phone, but now i would like to buy any one of them depending one which one's music system is better. can anyone help??
Can you use the gps when you are out running or walking and see how far and where you have runned?
Here's my +'s and -'s of the N78 after nearly 2 weeks of ownership. Bearing in mind i've also at some point owned the n95, n95 8gb, n70, n73 and n85.
screen is superb
music player is as good as i've had in a phone
radio reception is first class rds is a massive +
fm transmitter works very well
the whole phone looks really smart
loads of themes and games available for customizing
can take 8gb card which works very well
3.5mm earphone socket
battery life is really good
gimmicky navi wheel works rather well
Build quality is ZERO my back cover moves not only up and down but from side to side and in and out SHOCKING!!!!
keypad is fine but it creaks and groans like an oak tree in a hurricane
camera is not the best imo not as good as the n73
operating system is very slow in comparision to other Nseries phones i have owned it badly needs a firmware upgrade to speed it up
This could have been a massive phone for Nokia but is let down by shoddy build quality!!!! NOKIA WHAT ARE YOU PLAYING AT! there is no need for bad quality for such a high price.
for a few more weeks to see how it goes and see if the creaks and groans dissapear and i'll find a solution myself for the unforgiveably loose backplate. If it doesn't it's going to ebay and i'll get something else.
H E L P, 14 Oct 2008guys i want compatible themes for it about MUSIC where can i find them????You can find it on zedge.net

thanks Anonymous for informing. But i dont understand why it will lag while playing 3pg? how about mp4 or realmedia? im going to buy this phone soon so i would like to know that and comfirm everything. Does it sound quality good? and can it really plays n-gage games? how about the 3.2mp quality on this phone? how about the keypard also? and can you give me a conclusion? thanks!
Had my n78 for just over a week and here's what ive found do far
Music player is spot on
radio's reception is very very good
3.5mm audio jack
screen is first class
the phone itself looks cool
Build quality is totaly shit!!! no other word for it so make no apologies, my back cover not only moves up and down but bloody side to side and in and out. It creaks and groans when pushing the buttons on the front!!!! NOKIA WTF ARE YOU PLAYING AT!
camera is none to impressive.
i've had n95, n95 8gb, n82 and my trusty n73 and this no matter what anyone say is the slowest symbian phone i've ever had and that includes the n70!!!!
i really wanted to love this phone and do to a certain degree but it could have been so much more with a bit of thought and quality control.
WAKE UP NOKIA if you don't get a grip of the build quality you'll lose custom there's no need for such a poor build!
