To Graham and Kenny
Cheers for the posts..I have ordered a new long life battery which will hopefully cure the batt life problem. Not a heavy user, lot of texting, no mp3/surfing but the original battery lasts one day after having the phone 2 mths.
Went into my O2 shop today and they say the freezing issue could be a software problem which needs reloading. This is gonna take 1-2 weeks!!
Did go onto Nokia.com and found out that I have an old version of firmware. To find out, press '#0000# whilst in standby and it will display the current version loaded. Looking on here, the latest is version 4 whereas I have a version 3 from May.
Will let you know what happens after I get it back from O2 as Nokia cannot transfer the new Firmware remotely...they can for N70 but not the good ol N80..
furthermore about the post i just posted..
landscape photos taken at night suck as well. Like if you want to take a photo of the street lights or a photo in the city at night, the blackness is very VERY grainy and its annoying that i paid this much for the phone which cant provide such a simple camera function for me..
if im doing something wrong please inform me how to improve the black grainyness at night, if not, you know it sucks as well =]
Re: Davey Boy
I'm having same probs sending texts and freezing up, takes bout 4mins 2 send a text! and then bout half the time puts it in outbox 2 send later n 4gets bout it. I'm on Orange. Having spoken 2 them 3 times (when can get thro) they waiting 4 tech dept 2 ok a replacement. There is a VIRUS think celled "Golden Warrior"? I haven't got it but worth checking - from main screen hold * key down for a minute will tell u if its there.
Anyone who posts negative comments about this phone; obviously hasn't use it first hand. I've had this phone for 3 months now, and still nothing comes even close to what this phone can do. S603rd edition is the best, and available software keeps growing. N80 is truly ahead of it's time; and yet one more reason why NOKIA is #1.
I'm interested in purchasing the N80. My only concern is using the # pad to type in text applications (It's so slow using # keys). Is there a way around it?
n73: no wi-fi...pity. N80 took it all:-) btw can sum1 pls tell me if the n80 can browse files on another phone viA bluetooth ? Like samsungs. thanxx ;-)
BTW da n73 dusnt come near 2 da n80, vid res. on da 2 phones r da same. n73 has carl zeiss, but a fwend wit n90 said it doesnt m8 a recognisable diffs. wit carl zeiss optics. n73 scrn is slightly bigger, but scrn res. is lower than n80 which m8 da pixels BIG & mor visible.Also n73 scrn is 2 big 4 DA phone and theyv'e almost 4gotten about da keypad (wich's very small) squeezed in wit shitty joystic
Listen up all N80 fans/wanabees. I'm in SA. & i was wanting 2 upgrade now str8 2 the N80. But they told moa that the current release of the dreamphone (N80) has software problems & it freezes etc. So i was told 2 w8 4 the upgraded software/firmware version of the phone that won't hav these probs. This baby is goin 2 hav me w8ing 4 +- 2wks now - i hope i'll m8 it and i can't w8 2 get my hands on it
This phone is really amazing and right now i m using this one. Simply great
to davey boy ,,i get allsorts of crashes & another new one is web time out all the time,,then the gallery after ive just opened it it closes again & some times a java warning pops up after doing somthing.MY 1000 ma battery seemes no better even tho the graph on the site looks like it shud boost the talktime up to 5hrs..It is such a damn good fone it just needs a few things sorting & whether the new upgrade to this version 4 will do any better i dont know.I have tracked down my local service center but dont know whether i have to book an appointment its 1 hour away so not to bad,,but how long will it take.. TO SAM i downloaded it to my computor then transferred it to the fone using the nokia suite,,also wen it asks were to put the downloaded app i choose desktop so i can find it on my home screen..I have uninstalled hotspot finder even tho i paid for it for the month because it scanned for hotspots every 1 minute to 15 mins you choose & thought that was my battery problem but its not...My first charges of my 1000ma batty gave me two hours & the weird thing is that after playing the mp3 player for 90 mins it was on 5 bars but had to switch it off to go in a public place ,,as i switched it back on it was only 1 bar and lasted 25 mins before dying..I may have a faulty battery but thats awful.Now my original nokia batt is not good only giving me 5 hrs mp3 back to back playing wen it used to give me 9 hrs 40 mins,,have gone thru my settings & all is the same its as if the phiones short circuiting?? Dont know wat to do at moment as all was going fine a couple of weks ago
pliiiiiiiiiiiiz does N80 become slow like N70 or 7610 when the memory card or the shared memory begin full.thx
u lot buy a Extended Life battery which is 1000 mAh with Lithium Ion Technology. it must last longer and keep the other one with at all time.
hey all n80 users,
I wanna gt the fone bt i'm hesitatin due 2 al the bad comments!
I wanna know if there r problems with the slider and the sound quality (via earphones)?
I dn't expect it 2 b like n91 bt @least it should b like 3250 since they have the same player!
Plz help guys
Thanx in advance
my bad about the key lock.. the actual URL is:
ok listen up fools.
To those of u dissing the N80..majority of you probably havnt even seen the fone to recognize the amazing features it has.
You name me a phone which connects wirelessly to your network and to all computers, and can play,recieve and send to all those computers and to the phone. the phone is simply amazing.
- YES the battery life wont last you more than a day, but I dont blame it, the features and colour display and the best i've seen.
- The slider is used as a means of making the phone smaller when the keys r not needed, e.g playing music, games, etc.
- For those who are after the Handy Keylock, find it here: http://www.iphone-forum.org/showthread.php?t=108414&highlight=handy+keylock
- In my personal opinion, the video and camera quality is second to none, games and applications are also awesome, worms3d, duke nuken, 3d snake etc.
- probably the only thing that is a bit of a discomfort is the size. coming off a v3, it makes a difference, but i guess u need to get used to it, and trust me the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.
- Get a 2gb sd card and use it as an ipod as well... laughin..
if any1 else has queries, just email me.
And for those of you wanting to get an n80 but scared coz of all these comments, dont worry about it,take it from me, if u love functionality, you will love this phone.
