AnonD-20890, 22 Jan 2013Ok. thanks. I will test in 3G mode and reply you. By the way a user Gisam has problem in hi... moreHey, you are welcome. I also wanted to tell you that a good signal area doesn't always mean that you have to have all the bars colored. So to say, i signd a new contract with a crap Carrier (i didn't knew that before signing:). So before i had O2,and my phones battery lasted a bit longer, not by much, but everything matters. Also, in O2 my 3g network was good and i always had less power consumption in standby then with the 2g. Which, after reading all mobile specs, looks normal. 3g should consume more power while talking and less while in standby. But now, let's say: i'm home and i have my phone in 3g network. Signal looks full. Someone calls, i peak it up and answer. After just a couple of seconds (maybe a minute) 3g drops to 2g and this is also not something to brag about. Now, my phone never drops calls but it shore strogles to maintain a good signal, which means: more power eating and a crappy Carrier. So even though i have full signal while not touching it, i also think this is because my phone uses a bit more battery to keep it full, after answering a call or accesing the net i can see clearly that is a weak signal (a crappy network) and that my battery goes down faster. On O2 i never saw this and never had this ”errors” eating up my battery. So, what i wanted to say hear is that you can get full signal from a crappy carrier but the thing is how the signal behaves when talking and when moving, when covering the lower part af the phone area. There you can see if it is a good coverage or a stinky one. A strenght signal or a lauzy one:). Like mine... What you said to the guy is good, of course:) you don't have to ask me that. It is good that i am not alone here:). The more opinions the better. The more we learn:)

Keep it pressed till ten secconds. If it's not then just plugin the charger and let it for 5 minutes to see if it starts charging. If not, then do what SUDHAKAR saied, cause you probably have a dead battery

You have to open the 2 screw (on the left bottom (sideways) and right bottom (side ways)) and remove the bottom cover by gently shaking left and right along with pulling power. Observe how the plastic lock is in the place. Then remove the plastic lock like thing. Pull the plastic film (that is sticked to the battery). Finally battery comes out.
There are batteries being sold in ebay.com (worldwide site) and in ebay.in (Indian site). Search under mobile accessories category.
Note that you have to avoid taking out the battery frequently because if any part of the panel breaks, then you have to buy FULL PANEL SET !!!.
Buy a good ORIGINAL BATTERY from Nokia. Then buy Nokia external battery pack model Nokia DC-16 and use it. To recharge the battery pack, you will need a seperate USB adapter (AC to USB) seperately which is not supplied with DC-16. Or you can then plug in the USB end in a PC and plug the other end to the battery pack. But charging via adapter will be better because you don't have to keep PC on for charging only.
Please help. My Nokia N8 died.. The battery drained to zero till it shut off itself then wow i try to charge it but there are no light indicating that its is charging. Can't charge can't turn on. My Nokia is out of warranty. Any solution..? Thanks.

No incoming / outgoing call and incoming / outgoing SMS occurred during the test period.
Is it normal?. I tested in strong (all network bars were visible in pure white colour) signal area only.
How is the AMOLED screen compared to the N9 AMOLED screen? I'm not talking about ppi/resolution, but more about the contrast, colours and the blacks. I found the N9 screen one of the best. But I'm still thinking about buying this phone too.
