Replacing the battery for the Nokia N8 is quite simple.
open the 2 screws on both bottom sides of the mobile.
pull the bottom end straight, be careful is holds your GSM antennae and then there is a flap that holds the battery in place, lift it and then pull the plastic tongue straight in the downward motion and replace the battery. its a BL series battery. make sure that the plastic tongue is stuck onto the new battery, so its easy to remove the battery the next time over..
I have Nokia N8,is it advisable to update phone software to Nokia Belle?.Has anyone upgraded his/her phone?.Thanks for your feedback.

Then go to my folders (in messaging area) and check each subfulder for any unread messages. Then mark them read. Restart the phone. It should go.
This usually happens when I synchronize my main symbian phone with other 2 (not simultaneously) other synbian phones using the SWITCH feature (not available in the belle o/s).

Study the original position of all the parts before removing and during the removal process.
Play the battery replacement video in the laptop or PC in full screen mode and pause it after every step for you to perform the action. Since it is not that easy to replace the battery, better buy NOKIA ORIGINAL battery with warranty from Nokia and fix it. It is normal for any rechargeable battery to give less standby time when it crosses year by year (even if it is original or not). If it is original, you may get long battery life for more days compared to the duplicate ones. Thats the difference.

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.

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.
