OK. I'm tackling Belle now. I just backed up EVERYTHING on Nokia Suite. Wil... moreOk, from the beginning. I already told you, you really have to stop worry. All you can do is to destroy your files, which i presume, you backed up.
1. That memory that is shown in windows a 0, it is the ROM which is locked. Locked memory cannot be written by windows and therefore it will show you it's full. Meaning you are not able to write something on it. So to say, put a closed (closed means you cannot write any files further on it, the burner closed it even though, maybe still has some free space left) dvd inside your pc and see how much space is left. That will be 0 bytes. Hope you understood the theory.
Now, what windows says does not matter so much. Nokia suite is pretty much able to do more the you think. And that means, to rewrite your system. SO STOP THINKING. Nokia will not release a tool that can destroy your device;).
NOW. Do a backup of important files and rename it with what ever name you want (don't let the default name) tell you later why.
now factory reset the damn thing. dial *#7370# and follow the instructions (this will format your mass mem, so if it came with apps on it, they are gone). The format will take from 3 to 10 minutes depending on the memory. So let it do it's job until start's up and asks for PIN (if you have one, which i recommend deactivating during the update, just deactivate to spare some seconds and to much THINKING:)) continue with setting up your country and clock and so on. Set the time and date and go on with the start up (set the time and date good, don't pass them (not required, but for safety in case of a phantom or something:)). Now after starts and while loads the widgets. Let it do it's job, just let it 1 or 2 minutes to load all the crap it needs to load. Then open Nokia Suite then plug the phone in USB. Let Nokia suite install it's plugins. This will take something like 30 seconds. No big of a deal. Now (again just to avoid any possible problems, minding you are scared as hell) unplug your device and restart it, let it load to the full, just let it after restart to be secured has loaded everything. Meanwhile, restart your pc to and let that rig load it's system till goes crazy, by the way, you will need to remember what i've said cause we're not gonna open anything besides Nokia suite. After everything is loaded, finally open Nokia Suite and after is fully loaded, plug your n8 in USB and FINALY Hit software update. Follow the instructions, nokia will make an automatic backup of NOTHING, cause your phone is empty, so that is why your original backup has a name of your own so you won't get confused while manually restore. Let Nokia suite do it's job, your phone will go blank and windows will say several times that your device was plugged unplugged trying to install it. Ignore everything what windows says and just follow what Nokia Suite says. Don't touch your device during the update. Don't set anything until Nokia Suite says it has finished (only if you have set the PIN code i told you to deactivate), and installs additional and so on, when Nokia says you can use it. The you can unplug and you can use it. There you go, you are up and done Belle Refresh is in your device:). As addition, Don't install Microsoft office update, they will eat to much of your memory. Update i think are useless and never installed: Colorizeit, Microsoft Apps, New Social, Nokia Music, upload to skydrive. Stop your negative thinking and go ahead.:)
Stupid me, 29 Jul 2013MdN & Carol OK. I'm tackling Belle now. I just backed up EVERYTHING on Nokia Suite. Wil... moreOkay I haven't done this myself as Belle was already there, but I think the phone manager is correct, memory space sounds right. The update is said to be small, I think 40 MB so it should be enough, and some space might be cleared in the process too as system files get replaced by new ones. Just do the automatic update stuff on Suite, and when it's done see if you lost anything, so if the backup isn't done automatically you can restore it manually with the backups you made.
I have my nokia n8 since July-2011 till date it working and used it as my primary phone, Isuperb camera and maps navigator, also used other phone. As secondary I also hacked using norton hack foind in n8 fanclub.com mostly my apps I download there also in nokia store 25.7mb left in C: installed Launcher n8 and qoobattery its cool, I feel lyk its new again. Abt lamination they have also here Shield in mall they laminate whole body but mine I make only screen. I love my nokia N8 silver

OK. I'm tackling Belle now. I just backed up EVERYTHING on Nokia Suite. Will that be problematic? Like, will I end up with double of nearly everything when I restore, with them using up all my memory?
Here's what I saw! My PC is showing:
Phone Memory - 0 bytes free of 251 megabytes and
Mass Memory, 14GB free.
The File Manager on the phone however, is showing: Phone Memory - 109.3 MB free and
Mass Memory - 14 GB free.
I don't understand the discrepancy. Is there enough space on the phone to take Belle (seeing that the PC is saying O free bytes). I'm a little confused. All I have to do is click on "Install" and I'm still hesitating!!!! :-) Gee! This is torture!
AnonD-131418, 28 Jul 2013how about in night condition??i see the specification of sensor camera is big..It had the biggest sensor in a phone when it was introduced. Today it's still 2nd or 3rd biggest. It is really good in low light, better than any other phone I tried (but I didn't try Lumia). When the sun goes down I take a photo of some trees outside and it shows more details than my eyes can see. That's without flash, the only problem is keeping your hands steady because the exposure can be long, up to 1/8 or 1/5 of a second. If you use flash it's no problem until maybe 3 meter distance, and exposure is short so you can take photos of moving objects too.
AnonD-131418, 28 Jul 2013does n8 have auto-focus camera?? what phone is better in camera nokia n8 or xperia sp,l,p??Yes it has autofocus and it is better than Sony. It was even better when they compared it to Xperia Z.
AnonD-129768, 28 Jul 2013Looks Like Every One Is Leaving Symbian...!!!Yes, but I think they maybe had problems because of too much illegal stuff.
