Go to Nokia.com and choose your country, then once your there, just click on "Support" along the blue navigation, then click "Software" and then go to "Phone Software Update (firmware)", select your phone model, then select which way you want to update your phone, over the air or by PC. Then just follow the flash wizard. If you choose update via PC you will have to download a 20MB file which you will have to install and then use to update your phone firmware. Hope it helps.
i have the same problem. my messages are really slow. what do i download for it and where do i get it from?
i have had the n80 for a while and i love it...but recently i have had trouble with messages taking a long time to send and my screen freezes for a short time after the message has sent. i know that i need to upgrade my software...but where do i do that and what exactly do i download??
please help me...
Hmmm well i dunno why everyone is having so much problems with the phone...maybe its a certain batch of them or something...Ive had one for a few days now...seems pretty good to me. I played with the camera and all the features when i first got it and it lasted about a day and a half for me which doesnt seem that bad to me. Only thing is that it takes long to start up, i never timed it but im guessing like 15secs maybe or somewhere around there...and camera takes like 5secs to start up, switching to video mode took abit longer, apart from that i havent had any other issues with the phone. Sending a SMS/TXT was pretty fast for me, about 1-2 secs and it was sent.
But then again there is no such thing as a perfect phone otherwise the phone companys wouldnt make much money if they made one phone with perfect specs which would probably rival their other models so the dont sell as much...I bet the N95 will have issues as well...and with battery life i guess thats Nokia's gimmick to make us buy extra batteries so they can get more cash out of us, because they do have the technology to do it but then they wouldnt make as much money im guessing...
Overall i give the phone 7 out of 10, i agree that a longer battery life would be nicer and maybe add more RAM or CPU power to speed up opening apps and stuff so there isnt any lagg.
Does anyone know if there is a download available for the N80 making it compatable with sky anytime as for some reason this phone is not on there handset list and their download just doesn't work ????
I have just bought one. Does anyone know if you can lock the memory card so to view whats on it, you need a password ?
what a great phone...shame about the problems...im on my third now...first two worked fine until i emptied my cache and deleted all my messages...my advise go for n73 as does not have the same problems somehow...and hence this has been recalled by nokia like th n91 lets hop the n95 doesnt suffer the same problems as i am dreaming of the day i can hold that baby in my hands!!!
This handset sux, I've only had mine for 3 months and it always freezes on me. it takes about 30 sec to a min for a txt to go through, so Im hanging there looking at the screen that says "Sending" for this amount of time. I dont like the stability of the slide action it pops up too easily and feels a bit loose, Very disapointing Im glad I got this thru insurance and not have to fork out a heap load of cash - I hope that the other high end N series preform a little better
I bought my N80 last year&ever since had problems,had to repair it few times although had it upgraded to latest firmware 4..something.This phone has great capabilities but with too many problems&always needs repairing, too bad cause Im really a Nokia fan but still had to put it aside as spare phone,too bad for money spent on it it is a piece of junk,may be just my luck like some other unfortunate users
I have an unbranded(sim free) n80 with the latest firmware and it is still so slow!All my 3rd party applications are stored on the memory card,no fancy themes installed,high quality card etc.My work colleague is using a sp5 and it's considerably faster,why?I'm at my wits end with this mobile!
LOL all the hate, and not in very good english.
The n80 is a GREAT phone. Wifi works well and fast. Camera takes good pics. Maybe not the best on the market but certainley near the top. If you take a pic and move your hand of course itll be blurry. Same thing will happen with any camera.
Batery life is a little low if you are playing with the phone , but simple calling and just leaving it alone. It is pretty good! A bigger battery would be nice for when you are using some of its features but that means a heavier/bulkier phone. You cant have it all. You have to have some trade offs.
Its a great phone that offers a lot for the price. You want the n95. (I do) but it costs considerably more money. THe n73 is also a nice choice, but the key pad is smaller and harder to use. It also lacks WIFI.
Its up to you to play with each phone and decide on what you want, but dont be afraid of the N80. its really a great phone.
how can i put a videoclip on my N80?????i can't or don't know how to put a clip on it,what format must it be? plssssss plsssssss someone tell me pretty plssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
This phone sucks, had it for a day before i returned it. Wifi sucks, phone freezes, camera is poor. T-Mobile DASH is soo much better.
Im having a slight problem ,
When I restart my phone it has almost 20MB Free RAM , but even if I dont run any application or anything , after 1 or 2 hours when I check , memory is around 7 8 mb free , even when there are no applications running , and I cant Run two programs at a time it says Low Memory , is there any soloution to this problem?
Hi , does anyone know the difference between n80 and the new n80 internet edition? thanks.
i love the phone it has everything .
watch out for temperature change if you are outside in the cold the phone will reset cuz of the cold .
i wrather have the n73 without the slide and wi-fi but the n80 is a solid slider phone compared to a samsung D600 or a chocolat n80 is solid .good job nokia ,
now waiting for the n95 like every one that had symbian , we know it s the most compleat symbian phone nokia made and will still be for a long time after the n80 !
hmmm well i think set is kinda KEWL am using it and and wi fi also WORKS !! . abt sets sliding mechanism hmmm gets bit loose not a gsm set for SMS lovers. plus camera is Fantastic but nite mode is bit lower then n70 ..cheers
Simply a great one have. Keypad is much better than N73. Wud surely feel great.
LMAO!What rubbish you guys write.So you think the n80 will pick up a wireless network from a distance of between 50-100m?Check out the poor chip before posting such nonsense.The usable RAM is a joke*another reason why this mobile is SLOW*Build quality is shocking,camera is ok but probably the poorest of the CMOS 3+mp cams out there.This phone was a 'tester' before the n95-I pity the people that have been conned into purchasing the n80!
