he, 20 Jan 2011MUST READ I AM GIVING SOLUTION TO N8 USER TO SOLVE UR PROBLEM N8 PROBLEM: 1. Phone h... more 1.remove ur mem. card and format or delete all system foldrs with ur pc... 2. corrupt ur mass memory 3. Format ur phone 4. Reformat ur mas mem. 5. Put ur sd back into ur fon... Done...
The headphone jack is not stable. It keeps coming off, every time it comes off the music pauses. I tried to use it at gym. I mean the phone has some major issues but this one takes the cake. Seriously dissapointed. Would sell it if I wasn't making a big loss in doing so.
Messaging also u have to click on several times to get to a page. I am going back to my bb where it has all the functions and music player with a headphone jack that fits.
If the phone hits ur cheek while talking then the line gets cut or put on hold.
OVI sync of FB/Twitter into one page is very unnecessary and browser doesnt work fast like a BB.
Phone dial pad gets stuck most of time. So calling isn't easy.
No redial function.Seriously.
Some form of instructions have to be given on how to use it with Mac and sync with itunes if they want to get in on music player market, At least a CD rom with instructions or downloads. I had to scram through net and various posts to get certain things figured out.
Once you activate email download regularly it drains the battery fast.
Two months I tried using without much success.

Anonymous, 20 Jan 2011Does anyone knows if the N8 support wifi tethering? yes, just download a software named joikuspot. And unlike other androids you'll not be stopped by the operator on this one. Hail n8
The Nokia N8 is a great phone. It has an amazing camera, Symbian isn't too bad, and it's powerful enough to do pretty much anything you'd like it too.
If you get one that works.
Nokia's quality control is awful. I work in a phone store and we order twice as many N8's as we think we need, as 90% invariably come back as ELF/DOA. It is the N97 all over again, but worse, as there's so much more hype.
Our warehouse (which sends phones to every store in my state) had to open each N8 they had in stock and try to turn it on to make sure faulty ones weren't filtering through to us. Even with them doing this we still have so many faulty ones!
They are a terrible phone, so if you get one be prepared to spend plenty of time at your local phone store getting it replaced!
latest n8 mods v4.00 bring up ui
responsiveness, camera quality
increased, hd recording at 30fps,
video autofoucs and many features.
