Had this phone for over a year and absolutely love it. I have no intention of upgrading as I can't see any other phone that comes close to it. It does everything I need and the camera is AMAZING. A recent holiday with videos of the evening entertainment come out superb on the 42" LCD TV via the built in HDMI to show family. MP3 player and FM transmitter are used daily in the car as is the email and internet for work and personal stuff.

Composite TV out stopped working on my N8 since the Anna update and still doesn't work with Belle either. I've tried what you suggested but the phone still goes into headset mode.
Doesn't really matter anyway because I only ever use the HDMI port.

Your N8 must be faulty because I've never experienced the problems you've described. The N8 is a pretty good mobile phone actually and is surprisingly powerful considering its slowish processor and low RAM count.
Maybe you should read the user guide to learn how to use it.
Guys, do you all know that N8 has 2 different kinds of TV Outs?
One is the HDMI that we all know, for HDTV's.
Second is the composite one for normal TVs, which most people fail to use due to incorrect instructions.
First Switch on the TV, set it to video mode, attach the cable to TV first. Then lastly, attach the N8 to the cable and TV out will start. Simple.
excellent if you get proper applications from adevelopers, you all can try this web for genuine and free app for n8 belle...
Frankly, N8 is the worst phone I have ever used. Till date I was a Nokia fan, but seems things have gotten too far for Nokia folks. The phone will just reboot or shut down. Though the processor is cliamed to be very fast, but believe me that even when I disconnect a call, I need to wait for 3-4 seconds to get out and be able to click the right button. If I happen to clieck it before, some other application gets clicked and after the call screen goes off that application would be staring you in the face. The call comes and if I click to end the call the phone is unlocked, but when I actually want to do the work, it is locked again !!!! All in all phone is utter confusion and I have been using it for close to 18 months, but honestly feel like a sufferrer althrough !. Switched over to Samsung now and feel much better :-)
Does anyone have any black spot on n8 screen which is visible only in grey background i have soo many pls help me it looks very ridiculus

Leopard, 17 May 2012Kindly tell me is N8 support Skype video call. if yes how? no,it doesn't support video call of skype application but you can use fring application
I realy believe this is one of the more honest smartphones available today. It isn´t too pricey, feature packed, AMAZING (and let me say that again: AMAZING) camera, good battery life (I do not know any other smartphone wich is better at this, charging is fast too), belle is a really nice OS, i wish Symbian had better support from nokia and from developers... I mean, I realy like Symbian, it is a shame how nokia is allowing it to go numb... The phone also has an impressive AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, it looks nice, 3g seems to work with all operators around the world, it is really a "world" smartphone. It also works like a charm as a 3g modem for my notebook! Wi-fi works perfectly with all home and commercial wireless networks i´ve tried so far, and is fast too, i have used my phone´s networking capabilities for audio and video streaming, downloading a diablo III demo for my PC... It works WELL. Also, the fact that it also works as a usb host (you can connect a flash drive or external hdd to it and copy data to and from it! The drive will appear a new drive letter in file managet, just like windows! ;-) is a really impressive feature. It is a simple thing, but very useful, this makes it an amazing feature. I hope now you get what i meant for "honest" smartphone. It DOES the job, it looks cool, works nice and it is USEFUL, not only a nice-looking gadget. I realy love this device, i bet it will still be useful for some time to come.
it is very very good i have it . its camera is very good and cpu is better
