I see it available for download here:
I hope you can simply download and install it. The description says:
"Improve SMS sending reliability with multiple recipients. To get this update just fire up the Software Update application on your Symbian^3 smartphone. Please restart your device after the update installation. Do let us know if you find anything new in this update. Note: The availability of software updates are region specific, if you don’t have it already it should be available soon."
So, I'm not completely sure it will fix your problem, but you might try anyway. Judging by the last part, maybe it wasn't available for your region so I suppose installing it won't hurt. Good luck!

Any idea where I can get it at this time? This is the first problem I encountered with my N8, I've been using this for more than 3 years. Thank you for replying sir.

Hi all, just like to ask if there's anyone here having problems of not seeing the messages received and messages sent in the conversations view. I can't find anything in the settings menu that can help. What happens is that when I recieved a message there's a number and the date but no message, same goes when I send a text. Hope you can help me here, thanks guys.
Hi all n8 users....guys i just need a little help....the n8 didnt have send key like in android...or is there any keyboard in which send key option is available
sukh, 09 May 2014does it support temple run 2 No. Or Temple Run 1. Or Temple Run 0. Sorry.
Chshti, 09 May 2014How can I install android OS in N9?Maybe you should ask on the N9 page? ;-)
This phone i bought on july 2011 and still working properly without any problem and also i using Nokia N95 8GB tht i bought on August 2008 and still working it properly . so this both N series are the best phone ever and never want to sell it .
Belle Refresh and N8 are like match made in heaven. Both goes well together. We get the live widgets,pull-down notification tray,always-ON led clock,better system resource management etc. Beats the Windows Phone OS and iOS and almost on par with Android. There are apps like cutephone which adds customizable swipe gestures to symbian belle like the current gen mobile operating systems. One should also use apps like 'Periodic' which is a mobile tracker and security app for symbian. Other 'must-have' apps to get the most out of this device includes moodagent,swype keyboard,touchremote,dukto,batterymonitor,advancesms,facelock,smartoffice,healthbook etc.
AnonD-172944, 30 Apr 2014Cant we upgrade our OS for Nokia N8 from Symbian Belle into Android jus like our new sister ph... moreYou cant install other OS on N8, because of non-availability of bootloader. Besides Android is not resource-optimized like Symbian, so u will end up with a laggy under-featured device if N8 runs android. On Symbian its a monster with state-of-the-art features like otg,fm transmitter,xenon flash,dlna,dual tv out,offline maps etc. Symbian also allows lots of customizations to your device using 3rd party apps like spb shell. You can make it look like lumia phone,ios or android. However if u want Nokia and android, u can get a Nokia N9 and install android alongwith default Meego OS. Nokia X is only an entry level phone so not worth going for it just for android...

I will try to learn the system as fast as i can, and to find it's weaknesses. I played on this system many times but the phones were never mine, so i could not really work like a crazy with it:)). But as soon as i do something with it, i will tell you guy if is even worthy to go for next lumias to come....
Chickenlil, 07 May 2014this phone isnt bad, though it lacks everything android and apple have, i had it when it first... moreYep, the only problem is that android and ios have LOADS of apps, beside that, they pretty much lack everything this phone has. Quite everything. Another prove smartphone should never be judged by how many apps can be found in it's store;).

I hope i get it this week and after some mounts i will tell you guys everything you can do with it. At least, i hope so...
this phone isnt bad, though it lacks everything android and apple have, i had it when it first came out for about 2 months and switched to an android that lasted 3 months then went to apple.
Some good news: Shazam for Symbian is now free and unlimited.

Don't need it. It's Google. I know I would regret it. The only things I'm missing are LED flash and Skype videocalls but that's good because my love can't see when I'm not shaved. :-)))
I tried the iPhone 5C, surprisingly it feels like a nice phone, and I like it better than 5, but all those limitations... So I'm thinking similar to you, just something with Xenon, nice interface and basic functions, I like how WP looks with those new wallpapers and the new features sound promising. So yeah, let me know. :-) I'm especially worried about data control, with N8 I can do everything with 200 MB / month. Of course I have unlimited wifi at home. But I don't want something that wastes data as soon as I connect it to internet... Well I've read a lot of comparisons by Symbian users who switched to WP but I would appreciate your input too, so I hope you get that phone soon. :-)

There is an android app called EASY SMS (previously called as PANSI SMS) that overcomes that limitation some what. Is there any such app in windows phones?.
There is no option to enable / disable stabilization in windows phones :-(
