Ray, that's not a problem...
I don't like to brag, but I'm an expert and I will tell you what's the problem of not connecting to 3G.j
It always happens when you upgrade by a phone call.
They don't know N8 in USA t-mobile so they automatically give the casumers GPRS data instead of HSDPA.
So take it to t-mobile and let them understand that N8 is fully able of 3G access.
hello, 30 May 2011Ray, When I check the Log is it supposed to say GPRS?I don't understand because in the top left it says 3.5 G
but in the log it says GPRS !
hello, 30 May 2011my n8 uses GPRS (2.5G)
But I'm using Tmobile 3G....
How can I get it work on 3g? First tap on or near to the battery meter. A pop-up window should appear. Tap on the battery icon and check to see if power save mode is active.
If that don't work, make sure you have got the correct internet and mms settings from your operator then goto Settings > Connectivity > Admin. Settings > Packet data and make sure Access point is set to your service providers Access point name, and while your there set High Speed Packet Access to Enabled.

See that none of the gold part of the jack is visible
Over time the 3.5 mm jack will loosen up.

SUMEDH, 29 May 2011no security if lost
Yes, the N8 has security in the form of Remote phone locking, and phone locking when the SIM card is changed.
Also, there is an application called Phonelocator Periodic available for free from the Ovi Store http://store.ovi.com/content/25892?clickSource=search.
It also allows remote phone locking plus it lets you track your lost or stolen phone via GPS.

Don't get me wrong, I love N8, I own one.

I've had my n8 now from release date and i still would not swap it for any other phone but i do wish they had made the n8 with a better processor because it does suffer from lag a little but i am prepared to suffer that with the n8's great hardware features and i am also getting bored waiting for the symbian Anna update does anyone have any news when it might be coming out in the UK or anywhere else

Anonymous, 30 May 2011http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_s8530_wave_ii-3536.phpCompared Wave II with N8. Followings are the finding:
1. WII have +point on screen size & resolution (3.7 vs 3.5, 480x800 vs 360x640)
2. WII have h.writing recog. But do anyone uses that when you have swype?
3. Smart unlock can be available through 3rd party s/w
4. WII have DNSe, N8 have surround sound
5. WII have 2GB storage vs N8 have 16GB storage (internal)
6. GPRS-EDGE: class 10 vs class 33 (33 is better)
7. WII HSDPA 3.6MBPS vs N8 HSDPA 10.2MBPS

9. 5MP (WII) vs 12MP (N8)
10.WII have smile & blink detection, while N8 have none of them. Geo-tagging, Face detection, Image stabilization is available in both.
11.Video 720@30fps (WII) vs 720@25fps (N8) [note: all the movie camera uses 24fps and you don't complain while watching a movie. So why complain it here?]
