You will have no problems installing there:).

I got it from N8 fan club and I've tried to install it 5 times (I built up courage), with the same result,of course. A box comes up saying it cannot recognize it. So I ended up installing one from the phone Nokia store which sounds out the notes. I HATE it, but better than nothing. The ones with the moving needle are so much more accurate and quicker. Well at least the practice helped me overcome the USB thing-a-ma-jig. Mods or widgets? I'll have to read up on those! Thanks again.
Stupid me, 05 Jul 2013Thanks for the offer. Will do. My next project will be transferring a downloaded app from a PC... moreUSB isn't really complicated, just go to Settigs - Connectivity - USB and choose "Mass Storage" as default. Drag/drop your app to "download" or "installed files" or anywhere. Disconnect, find your .sis file, click on it to install, then delete the .sis file as you don't need it any more. Install it to Mass memory. Only important apps go to Phone memory (because when you connect via Mass memory mode they stop working until you disconnect). I think that's it. I have two guitar tuners and both work. ;-) Since you're new, just don't install any mods or widgets until you are sure what you are doing.
ps. For songs, just copy/paste it to Music. Then you open the music player - Music library - refresh, and that's it. Put the music player widget on one of your home screens etc.

vish, 05 Jul 2013Can any 1 tell me. What's the procedure and cost of replacing into new Battery of this n8 ..The bottom cap has two screws, on the side. You will need a torx 4 or 5 screwdriver and a new battery. That's about it. Depending of the series you need this torx 4 or 5, mine, is torx 4, but was released with anna. I think older releases have torx 5. You can also look here to understand better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmEFldMNLkM

My next project will be transferring a downloaded app from a PC to the phone. I find that using the USB to transfer is a bit complicated. I struggled through transferring a song and I am more than shaky about transferring an app download, but I do want this guitar tuner app with the meter. Any ideas to offer about problems I may encounter before I take the plunge?

It was my dream phone (well, and the 808) and I was finally able to afford it after some saving and when the prices came down. The other day I just uninstalled F-Secure as I'm not going to be using it anyway, and if I needed something like that there are free options. Glad I didn't hide anything yet, haha. Enjoy, and if you need any more advice just drop by! ;-)
MdN, 05 Jul 2013Does it shut down when you hold the power button for 8 seconds?OMG! I can't believe it! I tried it again and it shut down. Then I tried turning it on and it came on. THANK YOU ever so much! I am exploring the phone as I got it 2 days ago for $50US or $300TT at a bMobile sale in T'dad. It is my dream come true as I can't afford one at the regular price. So, I am a beginner and was on the verge of tears. I won't be pressing any hide button again!!
MdN, 05 Jul 2013Does it shut down when you hold the power button for 8 seconds?No. It is not shutting down at all. I also called the number from another phone and I simply get call forwarded. So it seems the system has shut down except for two things at the top left and right of the phone. One in the battery indicator on the right..
Can anyone help me? I went into Anti theft (which said unprotected)and when leaving, instead of closing, I pressed "hide" and now my screen is blank and the phone is on and won't shut down. How can I get it back to normal???? I am in anguish.
