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.

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

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.

hi i am using nokia n8 and i experienced dat this phone is awsome and its functions and features are too good thanx to nokia for inventing this type of phones
I would like to ask about upgrading from Symbian 3. To my knowledge the only official upgrade available so far is Symbian Anna. I want someone to tell me if i proceede in this upgrade:
1) if the battery life is influenced for the worse.
2) if the phone "hangs-crashes" or if it becomes slower in any operation.
I also would like someone to explain me what is happening with the Purple tint problem. It has been resolved or remains a headache?
I would appreciate any advice from any N8ing fan
