Carol, 11 Jul 2013:)). I called mine Trash before, now it's Rubble.
@Stupid Me. You cannot delete pre-install... moreI like "trash", so I now have a new trash folder. 3 buttons method? Don't even start explaining, puleease! That will make my eyes roll madly in their sockets! They are already rolling with the threads about hacking.
@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:). There is another way to get read off all C: pre-installed apps. But i won't recommend that to anybody:). Formatting with 3 buttons method...
MdN, 10 Jul 2013Well I hacked it anyway :-) I used MobileCleaner and RscCleaner, no idea if the phone needed ... moreYeah, that is something elese:). I hacked it mostly for mod's...which now aren't to many sadly:(.
Stupid me, 10 Jul 2013Oh dear! You really think the N8 looks masculine???!!! Well, I'll have to get some sparklers a... moreFrom a certain angle and at a certain light it does look like something from Star Wars or Star Trek, haha. But hey, there's a pink version too. :-)
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.
Carol, 10 Jul 2013You don't need to hack it to clear memory in c: . You just need x-plore. :). And now it's free to.Well I hacked it anyway :-) I used MobileCleaner and RscCleaner, no idea if the phone needed to be hacked to use them. Xplore is here too, the other day I found how to delete the crash reports. Still learning. :-) Also I do some theme modifying for my own use so it's easier if I don't have to sign them every time I change something.
MdN, 09 Jul 2013Exactly. Even if it's not for installing unsigned apps, it's still good to hack it for easy cl... moreYou don't need to hack it to clear memory in c: . You just need x-plore. :). And now it's free to.
AnonD-141616, 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.
djm, 09 Jul 2013if u use n8 very and fast u need to hack it.by 2 sis soft norton and rompacher plusExactly. Even if it's not for installing unsigned apps, it's still good to hack it for easy cleaning of some memory space on C drive.
Maks, 09 Jul 2013Can anybody tell which one is better n8, c7, 701
or if possible any other phone of this rangeDepends on what you need. N8 has the best camera + Xenon flash and 16GB memory.
C7 has similar specs as N8, but it has a fixed focus camera and 8GB, and has LED flash (can be used as a flashlight) and easily removable battery.
701 is the same as C7 but with better/faster processor and display.
N8 looks like a man's phone while C7 and 701 have a softer design.
So... Your choice. ;-)

MdN, 09 Jul 2013It's one of those "always online" apps. Viber is similar, even when I logged out it ... moreAfter reading your explanation about Whatsapp, I promptly un-installed it. Since then, I've been toying with the idea of installing Viber. With this new info, I won't bother because it won't be worth my while.
Stupid me, 08 Jul 2013Oh heck! I thought it was a bug or something that was preventing it from closing. It's one of those "always online" apps. Viber is similar, even when I logged out it kept asking for internet connection. I uninstalled both of them as I don't have unlimited data and rarely needed them.

Have you activate the mobile data in the notification bar? Do you have more then one configuration for internet? Did you installed more the one sim lately?
HEY GUYS, ALL OF YOU WHO WANT TO INSTALL UNSIGNED APPS PLEASE DO UNDERSTAND THAT YOU CANNOT DO THAT WITHOUT PHONE HACKING, YOU CANNOT DO THAT EVEN IF YOU SIGN IT WITH SOME CRAPPY APPS. Belle refresh is more secured then othher versions of symbian. Look for a proper hack of belle refresh (if you have it installed in your device, of corse). In the proper hack should tell you to rename the ”installer.exe" to ynstaller.exe and to copy it in a proper folder. Then use rompatcher to activate the hacked installer. This is the only way to hack and to install unsigned apps...
what is the best firmware for N8....
