Stupid me, 31 Dec 2013Happy New Year everyone! Here is wishing only wonderful things for you in 2014. May all your w... moreWow. :-) I just went to the window... Light rain, firecrackers, rather cold, but hell didn't freeze over and yet you upgraded your firmware. Wow again. Now I'm thinking everything and anything is possible, you made my day! :-)
Well, some day you might feel like playing with your N8 again. The way things are going, phones like the N8 will be a prized possession, something to go back to and remember the good days when phones were interesting, charismatic, had personality and attitude and you were able to tell them apart... Don't worry, I had mine for a couple of weeks before I was finally sure of what I was doing, then I inserted my SIM card and it stayed inside ever since. ;-) Just take it easy.
Have a great 2014, and if you ever need any advice, you know where to go. See you! :-)
Carol, if you're reading, all the best to you too, man! :-)
Happy New Year everyone! Here is wishing only wonderful things for you in 2014. May all your wishes come true and may you enjoy good health, happiness and a vibrant spirit throughout 2014.
Just dropping by express the above sentiments and to let you know that I have finally installed Belle after much indecision and fear. Special thanks to Carol and MdN8 :-))) for their assistance, patience and encouragement. I followed Carol's instructions to a T. Can't say that I am raving about it yet :-D. Where I'll go from here? I am not sure. My poor N8 spent most of its life parked up in a drawer. Maybe it will be back to the drawer. Blessings to all.

I have been using it but it has not shown the android type shortcut menu where the wifi, silent, and other menu top of the phone. How to set the default setting?
Anyone wants some presents?

hello friends, since many months, i am facing issues while logging in skype. Till i insert my username & password, it is ok, but just as i click log in, it haults for sometime & returns to menu. Plz give me any solution for this.
My phone's firmware version is
is it upgradeable?? If yes tell me the procedure
Aadrian, 23 Dec 2013Thanks, I'm going to try out some apps to see which one I prefer. I kinda liked the stock app,... moreLet me know if you find something. I tried AccuWeather, it's not too pretty but it works. Though, I'm trying to find something where I can enter my city manually and refresh it on demand, without the need for constant connection or GPS data.
The stupid thing about Weather is that, use it or not, it starts when you boot your phone. I use App Stop to close it, and save a little battery life.
Off-topic... My friend has an iPhone 4S and a few months ago he was trying to impress me with iOS7. Not too bad. Yesterday I met him and his screen is cracked - and he just dropped it on the floor. That's not too impressive. :-s
Greg Nokia N8, 22 Dec 2013Hello everyone.
I recently bought a Nokia N8 online from China. After updating the operating ... moreHi,
I did a little research and it seems that this happens if the FM transmitter isn't allowed (legal) in some countries and you updated the firmware to a version for one of those countries. You can try to re-install the software via Nokia Suite, but if that doesn't help I suppose you'd have to get a software for another region, or maybe a custom firmware such as Delight...
I found this on Nokia Support Discussions:
"The usual explanation for this is that your phone is a grey import originaly destined for a market where the FM transmitter is banned,
The dealers who import these phones usually flash them with the local firmware varient which enables the fm transmitter functionality, but when the user updates the phone reverts to it's 'native' regional firmware and the transmitter stops working
If this is the case the only solution is to take the phone to a nokia care point and ask them nicely to reflash with the generic firmware and pay to have this done"
MdN8, 23 Dec 2013I just bookmarked the yr.no (it's a Norwegian weather forecast site with hourly forecasts, jus... moreThanks, I'm going to try out some apps to see which one I prefer. I kinda liked the stock app, so I will look for something similar I think. I downloaded one app, but it can only refresh the weather forecast one time, then I have to start my phone again in order to refresh it for the second time, and so on. Not very nice lol.
