Rob, 05 Oct 2011Thanks Ray. Would wait for the update. But do you know the reasons why update for the USA mark... moreHi Rob.
As far as I know, Nokia are waiting for local approval from the USA, even for SIM free unlocked phones. Approval still needs to be given for the update to ensure full compliance and compatibility with the networks. It's also well known that the USA is notoriously slow when it comes to approving firmware updates, even for Android phones as well.
All the best.

This is not a critical bug. it's something Nokia removed from the logs.
A critical bug would be bad coding causing the OS to crash repeatedly.
Ray Hipkiss, 05 Oct 2011@Rob You will not be able to upgrade to Anna until the update has been approved in the USA... moreThanks Ray. Would wait for the update. But do you know the reasons why update for the USA market is not up yet?

You will not be able to upgrade to Anna until the update has been approved in the USA.
Also, I don't know how long you have had your N8 but if it is still new, you don't have a warranty either. The warranty for your N8 is applicable in the USA only.
Buying an N8 from one country to use in another is a risky thing to do when you consider the manufacturing defects that have been known to plague the N8, from faulty screens to faulty motherboards.
Anyway, the best of luck to you but don't be too anxious to get the Anna update, it's nothing special. A minor UI change, split screen text input, a re-designed browser (which is still laggy and slow) and a few minor bug fixes.
All the best.

jake, 04 Oct 2011hi George its a nice phone,but hangs with symbian^3not with anna its a good choicestrange, N8's symbian is one of the most stable phone OS available. In addition, it's price is keep falling. If it continues, will definitely get it.
who ever wrote below lines are 1000 times true
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.
N8?, 05 Oct 2011still no official anna update in USA! It's a shame! No anna update for the wealthiest coun... morehahaha USA wealthiest country ? when where how ? Nokia sells higher mobiles in India so we got ANNA asap same day when it launched :)but N8 is just awesome set.
I want this phone. I love playing HD games on it I've downloaded from http://www.afflicks.com
Anna has a critical bug. Log application doesn't show any packet data and wifi connections. Nokia should fix this cr@p
pls help, my screen locks after just 10 secs of inactivity. I've set it to lock after 60 secs but still locks after 10 secs. Any other way to keep it open for a longer period?
george_k, 04 Oct 2011I am consdidering to buy N8 and i want an N8ing user to inform/advice me about:
1) If symbian... moreAs far as I know (after using N8 from the very beginning), Anna removed all the SW problems. Mind you, N8 has the least amount of RAM (256MB) of the four Symbian^3 phones (N8, C6-01, C7 & E7). So, the users who just press the 'menu' button to exit the programs will find their phone hang as the RAM will be quickly filled up. I always press & hold menu for the running programs & remove which I don't use at the moment. Second, my Orange N8 had purple tint in PR1.2, but went away after the Anna update. My wife's Green N8 didn't have purple tint in PR1.1, had it in PR1.2 & it went away in Anna update. So from that I can guaranty that the purple tint is NOT a HW problem. It will be gone when you update to Anna. One more thing, to knm, pls don't exaggerate about something you love so much, don't screw it up with lie. You said N8 has CBD (Clear Black Display), but it doesn't. Only C6-01 & E7 (among N8, C6-01, C7 & E7) has CBD. Please, know the device before describing it to someone else, don't mislead others.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2011been using an N8 for months now and i'm starting to see this 'keep N8-ing' phrase. Can any car... moreUse your imagination, man, use your imagination. This is a creative phrase line. When you eat continuously - you are eating, when you sleep continuously - you are sleeping, when you smile continuously - you are smiling. Same way, when you use N8 continuously - you are N8-ing. Understood? Sorry bro, but you disappointed me. Anyway, take care.
Becool, 04 Oct 2011Guys N8 has proved to be the best smartfone ever...no fone even cmes close..now iam using bell... moreGood for you, you already have symbian belle on your N8. I'm waiting for the official release of symbian belle. My N8 got its anna update a month ago. It just got better. And if symbian belle can do more, that will be awesome. I can't wait for the symbian belle.
