AnonD-217261, 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"

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.

I don't really need it visible all the time. I tried only QooWeather, it was quite well made, for example it had a "wifi only" option and several widget styles, customizable with backgrounds and transparency, but one or more Qoo-apps was messing up my task manager (last opened app wouldn't close) so I uninstalled most of them and just kept QooSystem and QooCalendar, both older versions before they became integrated with each other and everything else. :-) I wish someone made an app for yr.no but that's not very likely to happen.

No updates since a week, and today the app is completely out of use. I did use the app cause I found it very nice. Now that the app is not upodating anymore, is kinda sad really.
What weather app do you use btw?
This is the no.1 mobile in the world,it's battery backup in 2g or 3g network is owsome,camara quality,operating system,signal strength & on the go usb features are very very very excellent than presents android or windows mobile,and no one any problem in my nokia n8 last 2.5 years.so i give 10/10 point to this phone.
I recently bought a Nokia N8 online from China. After updating the operating system the FM transmit feature stopped working. Anyone knows how to fix this?
If your Nokia Weather stopped updating - it's officially discontinued. I wasn't using it, I just go to yr.no to check the forecast, but anyway, I know some people did. Thanks for nothing, Nokia.
Here is a list of alternatives you can use instead:

muhammad shafqat, 16 Dec 2013i want to ask about the nokia n8 is not supporting video call on skype. have any slaution for ... moreIt has been told so many times i can not even count. Skype does not support Symbian video-calling. Apparently Microsoft didn't want this to happen for symbian. We all know why. For video-calling you can use fring. The first video calling app for smartphones that used skype an yahoo and others to. Skype killed it's permision to use the service, i don't wander why. Now fring uses just it's own calling system. And, unfortunately, there are not to many users of it. But you can ask your friends to install it if you really wanna do a video-call. It is available on all platforms. I don't know if wp has it, though.
