Do you have "Close all apps" installed so you can stop it before it turns off again?

@MdM - you're right. It IS folder and as well, it is widgets, not icon :-) Seems I'll be quite occupied for a while! By the time I go through all those widgets, my trash will get fuller and my apps menu screen will look rather sparse. I'll put on the App Stop as soon as I figure out which of the 3 options to use to sign into Nokia. Sigh! I don't know why they had to make life hard. Also, I'm going to look for a decent app for news and weather.

@Stupid Me. You cannot delete pre-installed weather app only if you get an update... install it then uninstall the whole app. An update i haven't seen for years now:).

You mean "move to folder" right? You can create folders in your menu (long press on an empty space) and many people make one called "Rarely Used" and put all the unneeded apps inside. I guess it's the Nokia weather widget you got with your phone so it can't be uninstalled. You can just put it in a folder where it doesn't bother you.
Maybe you should get "App Stop" from Nokia Store (it's free) and see if "weather" is still running. When you boot your phone it starts with the phone but you don't see it in the task manager, I just kill it because I'm not using it. The only real problem I ever had with the N8 was from installing some stupid weather widget that wasn't fully compatible or something.
MdN, 09 Jul 2013Depends on what you need. N8 has the best camera + Xenon flash and 16GB memory. C7 has simil... moreOh dear! You really think the N8 looks masculine???!!! Well, I'll have to get some sparklers and pretty junk to decorate mine! There is a weather app (green cloud and sun)on my phone that I would like to get rid of because it does not work here. When I press and hold, only "move to file" comes up. What file are they talking about? Why am I not getting an option to uninstall? I went to applications manager and got the uninstall option which I pressed. It disappeared from there BUT the icon remains on the apps menu to annoy me.

Edd25, 05 Jul 2013I can't find my current position in gps..plz someone suggest me.If your n8 can't get a GPS fix, try these things:
1. Make sure your phone is in "3G" and not just GSM
2. Under App settings - Positioning - Positioning Methods, check "assisted GPS", "integrated gps", "wifi-network" and also "network-based".
check bluetooth too if you have an appropriate device.
If it still can't get a fix, then try going online (either via wifi or via your data plan).
Sometimes it takes a little while to get a fix, but eventually it does for me even without having an internet connection (3g and integrated GPS only).
vish, 05 Jul 2013Can any 1 tell me. What's the procedure and cost of replacing into new Battery of this n8 ..Your question about how to change the N8 battery could be easily answered by searching "how to change battery on nokia n8" in youtube search.
I did it after watching 2 videos, and while it is hard to push the parts back in exactly right so it looks as good as new (I have a bit of a lip on mine now), but as long as you can find the right screwdriver, and you watch 2-3 videos where others show you how to do it, it's no big deal.
