I am using N8 i bought from the USA and i am using it in Ghana. I have not been able to upgrade to Anna. I get the message that new software is not available. What is the problem? How do i upgrade to Anna.
been using an N8 for months now and i'm starting to see this 'keep N8-ing' phrase. Can any care to explain what on earth it means?
Thanks in advance

To whoever is considering buying N8.I am using this phone for last 8 months.I have upgraded to anna now.With anna major improvements are,
No crashing or freezing of phone or apps
Better battery life(30-40%)
Email client has become very slick
Better browser speed.
New camera UI and major improvements in video quality.and lots more.You can check other improvements everywhere.
Now with Belle expected in November,no phone can beat N8's value for money,as belle promises to make the UI very good with increased battery life and many other goodies.
So N8 owners rejoice and prospective buyers,rush there is no substitute to N8 even after 1 year.Best Camera,free GPS,HDMI port,FM transmitter,awesome build quality,call quality,great battery performance.What else do you need in a smartphone with such price.
everyone who recommend to skip n8 i think are wrong,,,i juss luv n8!!!its features are awesome n covers are cool too!!!

hi guys for Nokia E7,N8,C7-00,C6-01,E6 users that belle os available from November. so you guys can update on November 2011.
I am consdidering to buy N8 and i want an N8ing user to inform/advice me about:
1) If symbian anna causes problems regarding the device and/or its functions-operations(freeze-hang-crash etc..)and the battery life
2) headache of purple tint. It has been resolved? can it be fixed or avoid it? Its software problem or screen problem?
Gitty, 03 Oct 2011If u download fring,u can but after restarting phn it ll open itself n ur phn ll hangI don't think so. I am using fring for long time. It never hangs. And from setting menu you can prevent from start itself while you restart your N8.
jude45, 04 Oct 2011all for d love of symbian anna and belle. pls i want to go for dis phone tomoro pls i need ur ... moreHi.
We have the same name. N8, as of the moment, is the best camera phone (with 12mpixels). Well, when it comes camera. I have N8 and have been using it for quite some time. I even upgraded it to symbian anna (you can check my old post) and I had not experienced any problem whatsoever. I'm planning to buy Nokia 701. It has much better specs than N8 (except for the camera). So, if you're planning to buy N8, I suggest you buy Nokia 701. Its the latest nokia smartphone. Personally, I don't like the 701 design but I love whats inside (features).
Hope this help you out. Think about it...
sg sabarish, 04 Oct 2011Please do not buy Symbian Its having some major issues . you can also go to alternate with xpe... moreHey, do you get paid from Sony or HTC for speaking ill of symbian and N8? N8 is the best smartphone to date...it's not eye candy, but you can do a lot of things with it which are impossible in htc and SE and samsung phones..I had an HTC dream long ago which I still regret buying...N8 is far better than xperia x10.
I am condidering to buy N8 and i want to ask
1) If symbian Anna causes problems (hangs or crashes or freeze or battery life)
2) What about the purple tint headache?
I'll aprecciate any suggestion/answer
george_k(nokia fun)and N8ing fun i hope
Hey um also bangladeshi.....i also use n8...and um 15 years old.....u have to see da product of n8 which were made in finland....u'll get good n8 if ur n8 is made in finland...and it wont discolour if made in finland product because made in finland n8 doesn't have any issue....so becareful when buying
[deleted post]I bought an N8 (Green) from Bangladesh on November 11, 2010 & used it for a long time without the back cover. Later I bought another N8 (Orange) on February 2011. I had to order for the orange one as it is not available in Bangladesh. Later I gave the Green one to my wife & am using the Orange one. Surprisingly, the Green one didn't have any problem with color (even when it was thoroughly put into a purse) but my orange one got discolored on the hinge on it's back camera (though I put it safely in my pocket). So, truely speaking, I got astonished when my N8 started to discolor. But software-wise it never showed any problem (a few times it DID restart, but got rid of it with the PR1.2 update). Now, though my N8 has some discolor in the back, I love it the same as when I bought it. Hope it gives you the idea that it is totally upon your luck (and a 50% of your usage) on ANY electronic devices of ANY company that the device will run smoothly.
