i am so disappointed about n8,i bought it since 1y from nokia in AL-AIN UAE and after 1y and 2month(after the guarantee finished),i had a serious non fixable problem in the board.suddenly,not accepting the SIM card .as long as there is SIM card,it,s not working .i went to nokia in EGYPT (where i am now) ,they told me it,s non fixable and if still the guarantee is available,u can exchange with another one.but unfortunately, it, s finished ,i have now dead phone and i lost 2100 DHS
phuck nokia. I bought this phone when it first came out. had to to take to their repair place 3 times in the course of a year because it was acting up. On the 3rd time they decided to give me a replacement. Brand new. 3 month later, that brand new phone can no longer detect a cell phone tower, from any carrier. TMOBILE ATT, nothing. Faulty phone. Nokia can no longer help me because it's out of warranty. The thrid party repair facility that they reccommeded can't fix the problem either. Nokia has only said too bad for me.
Is this sh!t legal?
joevy, 19 Jan 2012my n8 has not been updated since i bought it, i want to know if there are updates for me in Gh... morelol. No worries it 'll update anywhere. Just download the Nokia Pc suite (beta version even) connect your phone and it'll automatically let you know of any available updates. Kindly note that not all versions of the phone have the update available. Once you select the suite would via the internet download the update which in 2 parts and approx 85mbs. It usually take some time to install so be patient. Hope it all goes well. If you need any help let me know or seek out my teacher @Ray.
All the best.
Ps. Know lots of people in Ghana that upgraded to Anna.

To everibody, don't install antivirus programs, you don't need them. Especially they can cause problems with n8, phone want switch on, or reboot itself. After that you need to perform hard reset and everything and every app install again. I had problems when I installed antivirus, phone sometimes didn't switch on. After fifth hardreset I didn't install any antivirus and my N8 is now very healthy and works without any problem.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but, Belle is still scheduled for roll out in February and not next week. A mistake was posted on Twitter that said it would roll out next week and Nokia have officially announced it was posted in error.
Not to worry though as February is only a couple of weeks away anyway.
All the best.

Thanks Ray for your effort to check the codes.

Don't worry about your product code not appearing on the servers. The product code probably refers to a swap device which means the motherboard of the phone has been changed at some point. Have you had to have your phone repaired at some point? If so then it is genuine.
There are other ways to check if your phone is a genuine N8. Firstly, the look and feel of the phone. A real N8 is made from Aluminium (or Aluminum to satisfy the US spell checker) and if you run your finger over the Nokia Nseries label on the back, it will feel raised and a little rough. Second thing to test is to connect the phone to Nokia suite. If Nokia suite recognises the phone as an N8, then it is a genuine N8.
All the best.
