In addition to someone's post regarding saving battery life, you can also save battery life by setting WLAN availability to "Never"
Tools>Settings>Connection>Wireless LAN>Show availability: set it to "Never"
hope this helps...
its giving me 3 days of battery life right now
what is your modem?
do you have the WEP (wireless security) enabled? try to disable it and see if it will work.

Can anyone tell me what the reception is like on this phone, very interested, but have had bad reception with Nokia products before.
go to Web. then press Options. then choose Settings. then in "access Point" select Always ask. then after that type a webpage then when it asks you to connect, choose Yes.
it will search for access points so just select "Search for WLAN". it should detect your wireless modem. then you can connect to it. enjoy!
first, make sure that your connection in Services or Web is "always ask".
then go to Services or Web. it will then ask you to connect. choose Yes. then it will scan for access points. then choose "search for WLAN". then it should find your wireless router or modem.

hello everybody.... i just want to know where i can get a free anti-virus for my n80? my email is firstname.lastname@example.org thanks!
Does anybody has call recording sosfyware for N80. Please respond. waiting......
Hi guys, need confirmation before i buy this phone.
I have about 3000 contacts in my Microsoft Outlook. Can N80 store 3000 contacts in it's phone book?.
i want to get this N80 but can i knw,theres somebody said the slide is bad...?
Say caller name might be cool for you but smartphone with window mobile 5 like palm treo 700w has that feature also. Organizer is pretty bad. One thing for sure. This aint business phone. This phone is dedicated to the ages of 20s and 35s people who are willing to play with their phones whenever they are free to do so. Why I said this aint a business phone ? Coz symbian organizer is nothing when it compares to windows mobile phone. I was on verizon and had this treo 700w. Say the name of the caller or the number whenever I got the call. Daily basic or weekly or monthly or yearly organizer is better than symbian's. Window mobile 5 even has a feature that will dial the extension number on its own (you just have to put "," which mean 1 sec between each number before it dials itself--that means if you put 2 "," it'll take 2 seconds before it dials the extension numbers. Cool huh ? ) And yea, sliding mechanism is pretty loose: so easy to get slide even with little force. Typing is not that comfortable. But the screen resolution is jst perfect. I had a SE w900i and I thought that phone has the best resolution until I have this n80. Flawless. Just awesome. So are the features. Phone size is small and not that bulky like othr people said. Wifi ability is one of the reasons why I bought the phone coz you aint gonna find a phone, yet, with this beautiful, small, best resolution and with wifi .. ? Damn. I didn't need a second thought on buying this phone.
unfortunately the umts will not work here in the us because the n80 uses the 2100 and the 3g market here uses the 1900 umts frequencie.
but hey, thats not a problem im still buying it this friday.
UMTS (3G) are also available in asian countries by the way and fast growing, and maybe some in US (im not sure).
if you will not use 3G, then just choose GSM for improved battery life.
One tip for you to improve battery life is to set the Network to GSM only instead of Dual Mode.
The phone is set to Dual Mode by default which means it will search for both GSM and UMTS. the UMTS signal is usually present in Europe and not yet really outspread in other countries. So if you have your phone in Dual Mode, the phone will keep on searching or will keep on hunting for UMTS signal which most probably it will not find any unless you're in Europe or in an area with UMTS.
selecting GSM only might also disable the ability to get 3G signal. so if you're not really going to use 3G, then just choose GSM instead of Dual Mode. this improved my battery consumption A LOT.
also, make sure bluetooth is not always enabled and your GPRS setting should be set to "when needed" instead of "when available" as it also drains battery fast.
i really need to know, can these phone do a fit to screen picture when i select it as wallpaper? like 6280? need answer, please!
this phone rocks in terms of usability but, battery life is so poor that you cant even talk for one hour continuously. the slider si crap tooo, it opens on its in your pocket. i love myn80 sound quality is coool, camera no complain but no where near K800i. It cannot be unlocked :(
to anyone have the N80 silver: wich minisd are in your phone the 64mb or 128mb?thnx
How to use wifi?
Go to a wifi spot (ur n80 should be able to detect it under the connection manager/available wlan).
Then under d standby mode go to MENU>select Services>press options>go to settings>select access point> set it to "always ask".
Try it! everytym you access the internet ur N80 should always ask you what to use (wlan, gprs,3g etc)
