I have had to replace my first N80 with a new N80 from Nokia for the reasons below. Now the replacement phone needs to be replaced as well. I have had so much trouble with it, it just wont work properly. I am thinking to upgrade firmware at a Nokia Service Centre but if I do it will void the replacement warranty. I am sure it’s only a software problem but what if the upgrade doesn’t hold? Please read the problems I’ve encountered and let me know, thanks
When camera was on the phone would not take a picture with the camera button and said System Fault then it took pictures with the centre select button, then when looking at the new pictures in the gallery the,
•did not adjust pixel clarity, sometimes it does adjust clarity, sometimes not
•showed same picture as I tried to scroll to the next one
•froze picture and took me to the grid menu has happened twice now
When you press and hold the Media Key to activate the shortcut to the music player, the phone says General: System Fault and then will NOT play any audio tracks. Phone will also do the same as above if you select the Music Player icon from the menu

Hi ive had this phone since is was first released in the uk, and i must say its my fav and ive had alot of phones. eveything about the phone is class, what i would recommend is getting the fireware upgraded i was on 3 something and i had probs with it, i went to my nokia service center but they only had the same version that was on the phone so i upgraded it my self using the standard usb cable that came with the phone.

The sms really su*ks! Can someone help here? i just got my firmware upgraded in the Nokia centre one month ago, it was great for a while then the sms' started to get really slow again... please help cos i'm really getting fed-up with this phone.
Good phone, but iam sad that it couldn't take pics like SE k800i.Moreover the Sony Ericsson p990i has a better symbian with an easy to use touchscreen.THe p990i looks way more hotter and expensive.Other than that , I think it's a good phone.
does any1 have the same prob as me ? my fone still sorta hangs when sendin msg even aft the.23 update. any1 knows how to solve tis ?
FALSHING LIGHT PROBLEM
Turn the sleep mode off. This means the display stays on dimly with the clock moving about so presumably uses more power. Its in settings>phone>display then 3rd option down.
Hey there. Can anyoNe with experience tell me if the N80 sound quality is better or the same than the SoNyEricsSoN W800i ? Please.
*To the one wandering* You should KEEP your N80 instead and rather NOT go for the N73 as it is NOT a better phone than N80 at ALL ! N73 ONLY has got a bigger screen but the resolution is much POORER. And the "carl zeiss" on N73 does not make a difference in a way that u will notice it. N73 also has NO Wi-Fi & it is not a slider - so it's BORING and straight forward. The N80 has pretty much everything a phone can have and it won't get 'outdated' easily. It will be hard for any other phone to compete with this state-of-the-art mobile ! And as far as I know, every single Nokia that I had over the years had to be charged about once a day on regular usage. To the conclusion that this phone makes no exception - so it won't bother me @ all !...
Icould not decide to buy which mobile phone, Nokia N80 or Sonny Ericsson PP990i , P990i does not have WLAN, EDGE and 3.2 mega pixsel camera, But N80 is full in terms of these features. But the major problem is battery for N80, Pls inform me about battery duration and is it possible to find 1100mAh battery for N80
dani - i forgot,the slider is not locked or spring loaded and so will open by itself if knocked or squeezed
dani - the slider is good, and even takes a drop when its open well (phew!)
however it is chunky and heavy if you are used to phones like the 6230, 8310 days.
also you will notice it in a pocket
I'm about to give my N80 for N73,do you think i am doing the right thing??
guys i need youre help in this,i know N80 got better things than N73 but i hear the N73 got new crazy things + its loud speakers.
anybody help please & tell me if i just give my for the N73 or keep it.
is the black one made in a different location outside of europe and inferior to the silver one?? can anyone else confirm this?????
