MdN, 17 Jul 2013Hah, when it got released here it was 4500kn (almost $800) but that was around 2010. But it's ... moreOh dear! Well it's gone somewhere. It was on the main menu and now, there is a space. Shucks! It looks like a missing tooth. "Root folder"=main menu? I can't stop laughing at my ignorance :-) Well, wherever it is, it will have to stay there because I already spent too much time searching for "Root folder" :-). Bottom line - this phone isn't exactly user friendly but I love it anyhow.
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2013Yes, I think you got yourself a great phone. I tried the camera yesterday and took out a video... moreHah, when it got released here it was 4500kn (almost $800) but that was around 2010. But it's a good thing they are well made so even a used one works perfectly, and a lot of the Androids at that price are now outdated and unsupported.
"Root folder" is the main menu actually, what you get when you press the bottom-left icon. If the app is there and not somewhere else it shouldn't be hard to find it. :-)

I never installed this apps cause i know they are not needed by me.:). Among them are, new social and colorize it...

It's hypocritical at best, when they firstly abandon Symbian, then bring pseudo updates, which are only for the interest of MS, Nokia, Skydrive, privacy thieves, but nowhere in the interest of customers.

You should read about it before downloading. Nobody is forcing you to buy from store. Is not like is an ios on it, and you need 300 devices to copy o freaquing song into it's memory... As for microsoft apps, maybe there are people that use it. I don't... but nokia did a nice job putting them gratis on symbian. Symbian is one of the most free will OS. You can really do allot with it, even more then with an android... Much more.
Awez, 16 Jul 2013Hello Carol MDN is there is any way I can surf my Pc's Internet on Nokia N8 through USB or Blu... moreSorry, but as fae as i know, you cannot do that. But don't you have wifi at your home? Just buy a proper router (if you can) and you are all set to use you n8 on internet.
i just installed microsoft apps and nokia music on my n8 as an update and they seem the worst and most useless apps i've ever seen in my life, especially music is only for buying bullsht songs for £1-2 each, omg, pure robbery, i wouldn't buy one zillion of those craps for a penny, and the worst part, it can not be uninstalled, now i have to format the phone, it seems nokia is trying to monetize actual customers in the absence of ability of making new ones, their wp is also a fully monetizing os, good luck nokia, i got an android, i don't need to pay you though, now you're just some phone brand that i used to know...
Hello Carol MDN is there is any way I can surf my Pc's Internet on Nokia N8 through USB or Bluetooth...??????
MdN, 16 Jul 2013A total insult. I had to pay almost four times more for a used one, and even now the prices ha... moreYes, I think you got yourself a great phone. I tried the camera yesterday and took out a video of my parrots. I was absolutely impressed. The pictures were sharp and the colors real true-to-life...really beautiful! You think your prices are high? Be consoled! The ridiculous pre-sale price here was about $700US! With that kind of profit, they can afford to give away some!!!
Now, I put a useless app into the "Root folder" by mistake and want to retrieve it. The problem is I don't know where to find that folder. Can you advise? I want to put the app in the "Xtras" folder. Is it possible to make that switch?
Stupid me, 16 Jul 2013And they were going to the dogs in mine - $50US brand new. You had to join a long line to get ... moreA total insult. I had to pay almost four times more for a used one, and even now the prices haven't dropped. Lucky you. :-) Even phones like Sony Ericsson Satio go for at least $150-200, used, it's also a 12 megapixel Symbian but hardly any app works on it. But then, I still got the best phone for the money.
MdN, 16 Jul 2013That's true, they hold their value quite well. It took me 6 months to find it for a good price... moreAnd they were going to the dogs in mine - $50US brand new. You had to join a long line to get one though. Imagine, the N8 & Asha 302 were priced the same and were the cheapest on the list of phones that they were selling off. That was an insult to the N8 - putting other basic, entry level smart phones ahead of the N8. Glad I got one though!
dennis, 15 Jul 2013the phone is nice but price is kind high for other peoples to afford itThat's true, they hold their value quite well. It took me 6 months to find it for a good price in my country. Some people were even asking almost the price of a new one just because it says "Made in Finland" on it!
Anonymous, 15 Jul 2013DOes anybody know where I can get this brown full cover? I`m greatful for any tip!What brown cover? Like the one on 1020? I don't think it exists for N8 but it would look really good.
DOes anybody know where I can get this brown full cover? I`m greatful for any tip!

the phone is nice but price is kind high for other peoples to afford it

It's cool because it shows more than the built-in task manager. So you can just quickly check out if you left something running that you don't need any more.
