From one prob. to the next.Connection,apps,functions all keep stuffing up.And when you think you've repaired it NO! NEVER,NEVER,NEVER!!!!! buy nokia.And when you are told this model had probs and the new will be better.LIES!!!!!Nokia has no idea.Pissssed off,ripped off,and scammed.DO NOT BUY NOKIA!!!!

Article by: Nancy C... more"Nokia Lumia 900 has become available just recently and exclusively (for now) for AT&T in the USA. Unfortunately, some users reported inability to establish or loss of data connection. Often those people were cut off from the LTE network completely.
Nokia’s response came rather quickly – the issue is said to be software-related and the fix is already in the works. The firmware update to resolve it will become available on Monday, April 16.
In case you own a troubled Lumia 900, but don’t want to wait for another week, you are welcome to switch your unit for a new and updated one at the AT&T’s stores immediately.
As an apology for the inconvenience Nokia is giving $100 credit to the AT&T’s bill to everyone, who bought or plans on buying the Lumia 900 until April 21.
Nokia Lumia 900 is available only (for a limited time) on AT&T and costs $100 with a 2-year contract. And if you get one until April 21 you’ll get that $100 back. Now seems like the right time to buy one, isn’t it?"
How's that 4 customer care? Nokia did better than offering a refund, they are giving you a refund and letting you keep the phone. Apple takes back the device and gives you your money without actually solving the issue. Instead they say they are not @ fault because it works in the US. Nokia gives you back you money, fixes the problem and lets you keep the phone. I think you owa Nokia an apology -_-"

Nokia fones are so ruff-tuff can hacked easily
belle fp1 is ready for install to 603;700and701...
Check updates for n8 or c7 it may avaleble for these sets..
my nokia n8 accidentally fell from my table 2.5 feet from the concrete ground. at my amazement it still works, am i expecting bad performance for the next few days?
I have had terrible experiences in using my Nokia N8 device. This bad experience is a combination of faulty device & very poor repairing capability of Nokia care. I bought this device in April 2011 reading good reviews, i personally love the features of this mobile i think its one of the best mobile handset of its generation, but GOD BLESS YOU if you experience any fault with it.
Nokia customer care center (i have tried more than 1) is poor in capability & quality when it comes to repairing high end device. I have suffered recurring issues of auto rebooting of my N8 device right from the 1st month of usage & have submitted the device 4 times at Nokia care center. Each time they have returned the device by reinstalling the software & falsely convincing me that the device is repaired. This time i tried to ensure that the device is picked up by the Delhi Nokia HQ office team from the local Nokia care so that they personally inspect the device, for the same i had spoken to the tele officer before depositing my device at the Vile Parle (fones4u) nokia care center & i was assured that it would be picked up & inspected by the Delhi Nokia team.
However one the 3rd day of depositing i got a call from the Local Nokia care center stating that they did not find any fault with the device & that i need to have it collected from them, i immediately called the Nokia care customer service number and discussed the issue & to my surprise they too suggested me to collect the device & to continue using the device. Despite of me repeatedly asking them to have the device inspected by the Delhi team as the local nokia care center was in capable to identifying the issue i was unheard.
I am extremely disappointed at this unprofessional behavior of Nokia people. I shall NEVER recommend nokia to any one from hereon.
I hope there is at least 1 person from nokia reading our posts.
I agree with some people here that the least Nokia can do is to develop a feature pack specifically for N8, E7 and X7. Camera update must be included. The out-of-the-box camera software (with ^3 or anna) is better than camera update for belle.
A feature pack that will include all the functionalities in Anna plus, of course, with Belle's.
I already made a decision to buy N808 pureview but since with my experience in belle, I'm having second thoughts. This phone comes with Symbian belle with Feature Pack 1 (FP1). Belle had proven its unworthiness to me. So, it will be double jeopardy if I buy it.

I agree. Though functionality of the phone is smoother and a little bit faster, there are some basic features in Anna OS that are NOT PRESENT in Belle. For example, in Anna, you can view anytime you wish how much of battery life is left. In belle, only when you power off you can see the battery status, and sometimes this status doe NOT show up when you power down.
My N8 now hangs sometimes in Belle. Whereas before with Anna OS, my phone NEVER hanged.
In short, Symbian Belle is a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT to us who upgraded.
I fully regret why did I ever upgraded. And on top of that, I waited for a long time because I believed Belle is a promising OS with better functions and experience. But it turned the other way around.
As a whole, Anna is better than Belle.
N8 on belle is a downgrade. I recently bought an n8 with pre-installed belle os. While there has been improvements in the browser and works somewhat smoother, the camera doesn't produce pictures just as good as in s^3 and anna and the music player is quite horrible. Not only is the sound too soft, it is also the worst i have ever got from a nokia phone. My c6-01 and e6 which i haven't upgraded to belle has brighter pictures and a whole lot better sound..

I am stuck with pre pr1.0, belle and delight belle. It is very leghty process for pr 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, anna and you have to download software in Gb not in Mb. I have to keep my phone some time on ventilator. Ha ha.... What a fun by nokia.

I also have PR1.1 (original factory setting) and its working very well, no need to update, in my opinion.
Apple will refund Australian customers over the new iPad 4G capabilities
Article by: Nancy Clayson
Apple has announced that will refund Australian customers who felt misled about the 4G capabilities of the new iPad.
The country’s consumer watchdog has taken Apple to court for false advertising because the tablet computer does not work on Australia’s 4G network.
Apple’s lawyers said they were willing to publish a clarification.
However, Appler the company does not accept that it misled customers.
Australia’s Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) said on Tuesday “that Apple’s recent promotion of the new is misleading because it represents to Australian consumers that the product can, with a Sim card, connect to a 4G mobile data network in Australia, when this is not the case“.
Apple has announced that will refund Australian customers who felt misled about the 4G capabilities of the new iPad
The watchdog then lodged a complaint at the Federal Court in Melbourne.
At a preliminary hearing, Apple lawyer Paul Anastassiou said Apple had never claimed the device would work fully on the current 4G network operated by Telstra.
Apple says the new iPad works on what is globally accepted to be a 4G network.
The matter could go to full trial after the Easter break.
The Apple iPad’s third version went on sale earlier this month, with Australia the first country where it was available.
Shoppers lined up by the hundreds at Apple stores on opening day and the company said it had been its strongest iPad launch to date.
The ACCC said it was seeking an injunction on sales as well as a financial penalty against Apple, corrective advertising and refunds to consumers.
On its website, Apple does state that 4G LTE is only supported on selected networks in the US and Canada.
What I want to say nokia, this is the customer service. It is not like you left millions of customers with belle crying. You have to do something to keep in the market. Either give a link to revert to anna 25.007 or make belle fully functional with feature pack or otherwise any means. Otherwise you have to pay heavy price for that in future. Who will trust you ?
I was running to catch up the transport suddenly something fill out of my sweater pocket and bounced away from my location.. It was my N8... wiped the dust and moved on.. nothing happened to the mobile !... 10/10 device i assure you it
i atleast drop my phone twice a week and it still functings perfectly,something that an iphone can't do.
I must say best phone i've ever had, please vote 10/10
This belle makes us doctor. Whenever, we are trying to downgrade, it becomes dead. Then we have to put it on dialysis. It start breathing again. But we bought this phone for use. Now nokia is enforcing us to use phoenix, navifirm and cooker like stuff. This is very bad nokia. It looks daya are not far when, there would be lock on nokia. Try to give belle feature pack or give a link to revert to anna. Whenever you fixed belle let us know, we will upgrade it. But the phone should be fully functional. You are unnecessary harrassing us. This phone was a king, but due to your bad strategy, you made it sick. Now we are sick. Tit for tat. Nokia you have to become sick now. Ha ha ha. Whatever you will sow, so shall you reap.
