bullzeye, 14 Jan 2011so what you are saying is that i should get a temporary mtn sim and test everything on the N8 ... moreYes. Test it with a mtn sim for the 1st 7 days. Dont change sp's until the 1st 7 days are over. After that you can decide to port if you want. Mtn is great. I ported from voda like 4 years ago and i'm happy with them thus far. Dont take out the plastic covers until the 7 days are over. Including the back camera plastic. The photos may appear slightly blurry but not too bad though with the plastic on the lens. I guess you're getting the black/grey colour then? I got the silver/white on voda. I would have liked the blue (or orange!) but you know the drill....we always slow in getting everything here! Hey btw, i got my current phone for 2 months now and going really well. 4 other guys got this as well at work after seeing my one and theirs are working just fine too. Must have been my bad luck with the 1st 2 phones.
N8 PR 1.1 IS COMING FRIDAY.

I check this forum everyday because I have gotten a lot of useful information about the N8 here. You can post any question here for me. I spent a year in Jamaica. It's a beautiful country (lower Kingston can be difficult though).
Is it possible for you to post with a name, Jamaica Guy is ok if you don't want to give your real name.
Hey Trinidad guy who made post about Ovi Maps earlier-are you there? This is Jamaica guy. Need to ask you some questions about gps in the caribbean? Need contact info or answers on this page. You there?
Mac, 14 Jan 2011You would lose your warranty for swapping sims from one sp to another. I didnt care and just s... moreso what you are saying is that i should get a temporary mtn sim and test everything on the N8 for the first 7 days to see if i cant find anything that is wrong with the phone and then i can put in the voda sim?
i dont mind switching because there is the MTN number for life so i can keep my number even if i switch from sp's.
i also like MTN more, free facebook and nice service.

Just some info for those that use the fm transmitter. If you are transmitting music via the music player to a radio and prior to switching the transmitter on you had the music volume set to zero volume, mute or off; then when you switch the transmitter on without the volume on then the music doesnt play on the radio. If you switch the transmitter off and on it doesnt help. With the transmitter on it doesnt allow you to turn up the volume on the phone as displays 'use the volume on the radio' - something like that. Hence you have to turn the transmitter off. The music player will still be playing so turn up the volume and then now turn the transmitter back on. Hope this small info helps cos i panicked when my phone wasnt transmitting music.

If I understand your problem correctly, what you need to do is run run OVI maps once, press the update button and download a few Kilobytes of map data by pressing Add new maps. Then exit ovi maps and then install full map/s using ovi suite.
Once that's done you should be good to go.
If that didn't solve your problem, could you post back either here or at the Nokia support discussions web site with more specific details of your problem?

bullzeye, 14 Jan 2011i am currently on vodacom, but i am going to get the phone from my mothers MTN upgrade, i thin... moreYou would lose your warranty for swapping sims from one sp to another. I didnt care and just swapped anyway to mtn from my voda contract. Did that cos everyone has my mtn number at work and i have my work emails running on this phone cos the email client is better than my 5800xm. Love this phone but just a piece of advice. If you gonna swap sims to another sp, before doing so test everything solidly for the 1st 7 days. If alls good, then swap. I picked up glitches in my 1st 2 devices and had them replaced with no hassles. Got mine from nashua mobile. Just test everything like gps, hdmi, fm transmitter, usb otg etc.
can anyone help me get the navigation working on my N8
it went AWOL after i downloaded Ovi maps and i cannot get it back on. Tearing my hair out !! PLEASE !!
Dipto, 14 Jan 2011and by the way i never found u posting something useful u come trolling around here posting ur... moreI have been speaking at length today to the nokia press office , who simply said that they have a set standards how to release information. My post yesterday exposed ZEE as a liar. Nokia do not relaese anonymously. Why do would they release sensitive information to you. Nokia do not hint at relaese dates, at they have to co-ordinate logistics. So if it is from a person you have 4 elements and these are named person, date, information and location. ie who when where & info. So if you do not get all 4 its not from Nokia. selling Newpaper getting the scoop first is why the world is littered with people who claim to know information first.
everything you Zee adkane is made up. the sad part is
i spent time on the phone to get this. I already knew
your just bogus. you introduce element not in discussion . you lack the capacity for reasoned debate
asay a day and come back to this. what if any information have you posted that has been correct. all made up THE WORLD IS WATCHING. THE ONLY THING NOKIA KNOW ABOUT YOU IS YOUR GUARENTEE CARD. SEE IT HERE IF YOU CAN'T REPLY ATTACK MAKE IT PERSONAL.
so i guess you are now at the MWC NO
in short the idea that nokia even know or care about these people is laughable. any future post ask them for a source. even you can't put me off owing a N8
Believe me people there is a problem with this phone, it always hang-up.
