After installing various software overlays like SPB mobile shell (which is great) I still use the symbian UI 99% of the time. Sure S3 may not be the best OS around but there are things that kind of pull you to it. Dont allow the rest of the world to make you discontented with your N8. Judge from your own experience. Curious to see what Anna will bring
uninstall from control panel... and install the drivers from Nokia site. I think they are called nokia connectivity drivers... something along them lines
dude7, 20 May 2011Yes, I have that problem too!!!
I think that is the windows problem...
How to uninstall all ... more@dude7.
Below is a solution taken from Nokia support discussions official website.
1. Disconnect your phone from your computer.
2. Go to Add/Remove programs in the Control Panel.
3. Remove Nokia Connectivity Cable Driver
Remove Nokia Ovi Suite
Remove PC Connectivity Solution
4. Download and run Nokia PC Suite Cleaner from
6. Download latest version of OVI Suite from
7. Turn off you AntiVirus/Spyware and Firewall(Including Windows Firewall if enabled) software before you start the install of OVI Suite- very important!!
8. Reboot after installation of OVi Suite
9. Do not start OVI Suite yet after reboot!
10. Make sure your AV Software/firewall is not turned on.
11. Connect your phone using your USB cable.
12. The drivers should install without any problems. Takes a minute or so.
13. Start OVI Suite after Windows reports that the installation was successful.
Everything should work now.
The credit should go to Vesperillo if it helps anyone solve their USB / Ovi suite problems.
All the best.
Love the N8, but by accident (in ignorance) deleted menu from screen an can't access menu now. What can I do to get it back?
Yes, I have that problem too!!!
I think that is the windows problem...
How to uninstall all the N8 usb drivers and reinstall them?
There is error of the USB..
This happens to lot of N8!!!
When I plug my N8 in my PC it connects it but when I want to put some videos or songs it stops responding....

i am also using n8 since janry 2011,it a good phone,and getting a wide battery backup.now i am waitting for new update ANNA OS
Also may get E6 when it comes out as my work smartphone..I just trust Nokia quality..
If i get this can i do the tranfers of data from an E72.What i mean is an app called switch,,you put both phones linked by bluetooth and it exchanges contacts/texts/MMS/calleder entrys and notes from old device to new,,Thanks.
Its such a nice smartphone in solid aluminium ive seen it a few times in store but just started taking note with summer coming up that 12MP camera will works wonders.I have a digital camera but only take it to special evenmts.I have missed some moments not having a decent cam,,also e72 is only 15FPS video record @VGA so this would be superb update.
Who says Nokia is dead is silly ,i think windows 7 will flop and Nokia will do series 40 for budget,,s60 for midrange and Meego for high end.
Meego is a linux powerhouse by the way..Anyhow i am still supporting Nokia.Just had sgs s2 but its too biggggggg...It went back..
wat up people just wanna know if d green n8 is defect free. I will b glad 4 ur info b4 i get. Long live nokia n d users all over d world.

The FM transmitter is disabled in some countries for legal reasons, such as in France.

AnonD-8867, 19 May 2011pls tell me.i want to go 4 nokia N8 but my friend says i shld go for BB torch. i dont kno much... moreGo for anything but the Torch, buddy. I will go for the N8 rather than that BB brick.
"The Torch seems sluggish, underpowered, and dated from a hardware design standpoint, and BlackBerry 6, despite its new features and polish, still feels woefully behind the curve. To call the Torch the "best BlackBerry ever" wouldn't be an understatement, but unfortunately for RIM and the faithful, their best isn't nearly good enough."
