Think about it, forget everything else, Nokia have given up on Symbian & MeeGo. So why would they build another Symbian Flagship? My dear friend, those are rumors. Nokia is not going to put any camera more than 8MP (fixed or auto focus) for a while, let alone 12MP. So be sure that N8 will not be re-make. But, I think (not sure), there was a PINK version of N8, launched in USA & Finland only (I found it in Nokia's USA & Finland site only, not even in UK), was with a 32GB memory built-in & supported 32GB card. That N8 might have the name N8-01, instead of regular N8-00. I'm not sure & can't recheck, as the search with N8-01 results some rumor phones.

Then you'd know whether there is a virus for N8 or not. FYI, "CBH Trojan Horse" was the one causing this problem. I'd be happy to infect your N8 to prove it to you, but I won't as I love N8 (any N8) so much to make it go through any trouble.

How exactly does this method help you to install unsigned SIS files? Please r... moreRay,
If you'd check the other options, I'm sure, a tech-geek like you would understand it clear. But even then, I'm trying to clear it for you.
You have two options under Software Installation: All & Signed only. When you select All, then the phone will not hold back the SW that is unsigned.
You have three options under Online certificate check: Must be passed, On & Off. If you choose the first one, then your new SW will NOT be installed unless your phone connects to the net & the certificate passes the criteria. If you choose On, then it'll check online, give you a warning if it is not passed, but let you install the SW (if the SW installation is set to All) or hold it back (if the SW installation is set to Signed only). If the option is set to Off, then it will not hold the SW installation back. It'll work without anything, just giving you a fair warning before the installation.
I'm very disappointed that you couldn't understand that, Mr. (H)ipkiss.

I finally upgraded my N8 to Symbian Belle and I must say that it's much better than Anna..except the notification bar, I didn't find any other similarities between Belle and Android (I don't know about Gingerbread and others,I used android 1.6 only ). Flashing wasn't so difficult, had to download a few softwares and then I just followed the instructions.
Belle is awesome, but N8 should've had it long ago.

I have tried deleting all the memory and restore the phone but it hasn't helped. I guess that I will have to live without GPS until Nokia decides to put out another update to correct this problem. I am so disappointed in Nokia right now. My N8 was working until this 'so-called update.'
Do you have problem with Nokia maps update, because after update when I try to start maps there is some compatibility error and it crash.Problem is, it is official nokia update from nokia suite. I have Sym. Anna.

First you need to update your phone to Anna, then visit the Nokia beta labs website and download and install the camera update application.
Next Symbian os name is starting with "C"?,
which will be coming with new N8 updated version,& may be support 480*800, screen resolution.

You can store your songs to the inbuilt 16 GB memory but the phone will slow down if you fill it up too much. The same is true for an external SD card, so it's best to leave a few Gigabytes free.
You will only be able to update your phone once the update has been released for the USA because the updates are tied to the phones product code which are country specific.
I'm not sure how long you have had your phone but if you buy an N8 from one country to be used in another you actually lose your warranty. If you need to have the phone repaired under warranty you will have to take it back to the USA.
