I upgraded to the N80 in July 2006 seemed to all be going well until late Aug 2006 when the battery power would fail within 4hrs and the message "Sim Registration Failed" would appear Orange replaced it next day. All again goes well until Early December exactly the same problem!!! That makes it my 3rd N80 in five months and Orange will not replace the phone but seem to have withdrawn it from Sale (So have Vodafone) The Phone is not fit for Purpose. Dont EVER BUY !!!

I’ve had My N80 for 8 Months now and I have had absolutely no problems. As far as battery life goes, from a full charge to dead it takes between 36-48 hrs. and I’m running numerous programs in the background, my Bluetooth is always connected and on, I have auto wifi search every 5minutes I watch at least 1 DVD movie daily as well as play numerous games and emulators on it and I average about 45min. a day in talk time…
Therefore its my personal belief that most complaints derive from a failure to read the user manual before operation; and all others because some people choose not to make well informed decisions about their purchases,(I mean what do you expect when you buy from any old dealer over the internet)…
Here’s a few suggestions, first make sure the phone is Factory Unlocked and not Branded or carrier unlocked ask these questions in an email so there is written proof in case your dealer tries to swindle you, Also see if you can find one that was manufactured in Asia preferably China, your chances of receiving a reliable phone are greatly increased…
2nd its really not a problem but sometimes after you’ve had the phone a while you might want to install the SMS Accelerator after that your good from then on unless you want to update you firmware but it really wouldn’t be necessary…
3rd, if anyone would like detailed instructions on how to repair or tighten the slider just email me…
it is not good. ı think try another model of nokia. maybe you can wait N95...
a RAR file is like a ZIP file. its a compressed file format.
you have to open it in your computer to extract the SIS file compressed inside it. then you can transfer the extracted SIS file to your phone after.
if you dont have a program to open RAR files, you can install WinRAR in your computer first so that you can extract RAR files.
aside from WinRAR, there are other applications for extracting a RAR file. just search the internet and see which program you'll like.
Hi guys...I tried to download softwarees from series60v3.com...some of them r of rar type which is not recognised by mobile as it supports sis or jar type..can anybody help me what to do.....??
I think the N80 gets messed up when they have it branded by a network provider because they install they're own firmware.
when you buy it alone without any network package (unlocked phone) and with the latest official Nokia firmware, you wont have a problem with it.
been using it for more then 6months and no problem at all.
Eight months so far!! not one single problem!! perfect phone...i love it!!
Orange stopped selling it now o2 and no doubt vodafone will be next.I suffered a loss of nearly £200 pounds when I sold mine on ebay.I wonder how much the networksl have shelled out!And just to add the n80 I bought didn't have any operator software installed as it was sim free.Nokia should be sued for selling faulty goods.
sorry,that should have read think carefully before buying a n80 if it's from vodafone
My mate works in the vodafone shop and he showed me a pile of n80 return's plus a massive list of e-mail complaints.Think carefully before buying the n80.
i currently have a o2 contract 6280, i've got 3 months to go and really want to get the N80, but o2 dont do it anymore and i dont want to go with another network or use the carphone warehouse/ phones 4u as they are 2 expensive pls help!
Hey, I've had this phone for 2 months now and already the slider is quite slack & shakey. I admit i dropped it twice, but before that happened the slider wasn't as firm as say a samsung phone a buddy of mine has. Is there anyway I can fix this? Otherwise it's an awesome phone, I use windows live mobile all the time. (check http://www.series60v3.com/ for software, games themes etc!)
some of u are asking too much from nokia~ they give u this u want it better.... asking u to pay more u wouldn't.... some of u said it's the worst phone ever from nokia..... most of u have problems with the slider.... so just becareful with it.... battery wouldn't last days? wats ur charger for????it'd like to know one thing.... most of u having problems like hang or slow response would it be due to the external memory card size ur using???(query) 3mp and 2mp cameras does not show the quality of the picture but the size of the picture so do not use the megapixel as a standard for quality but it's for size of the picture.... and xenon flash is definitely ebtter than led light flash... and carl zeiss lens is better. which all these features does not feature in n80:) updating firmware would solve some of ur phone bug.... so do try that...... we could get AP phones so nokia center isn't my place to visit~ cheers happy holidays and merry christmas
The battery life can be alrite if you know what your doing I'm a power user and I get 1.5 days out of mine you guys do know that you can even use the opera browser on this phone and other brilliant programs like handyzip some other stuff too nokia do a lot of market research and they knew that many nokia users wanted the n80 power up to nokia
It's a smartphone with symbian os Not a laptop or top end pda/phone and as such should not have such high expectations.The n80 is a reasonable product.
