would i book my phone into a nokia service center to upgrade to newer firmware & is it free thank you
my wife got this phone...bright screen but the camera nothing to compere with sony k800
Nokia N80 (11)
is that the newest firmware?
How could any1 possibly carry a 134gram fone around all day?! It's 2 bloody heavy, ur pants will drop off if u put it in pocket!
Can some1 tell nokia designers 2 STOP making bricks?!
They shld focus on making compact-sized lightweight fones.
My 6280, weighing @ 115gram is already a tad 2 heavy 2 b kept in my pants' pocket.
Can anyone tell me plz where to download the latest firmware version for the N80. it keeps telling me memorey full, evrytime I use it, though, the misi SD is empty, please help.. it's so annoying...
Thanks in advance .
thanx for the advice,i must go to specsavers. it was just a bit awkward doin 90 on the m6 and txting at the same time. no more worries anyway , thankfully the n80 was a free upgrade . so i took my sim out of it this morn and chucked the n80 onto the middle lane of the m5 . a scania lorry done the business on it. happy days
Please I just got this phone and would love to know how to get its full potential. It cost me a lot of money.
@Coco stop saying lies to people you are confusing them.
the n73 its quadbad EDGE and 3G
n80 metal frame will not fade after 1 month
the n73 its faster than n80
in benchmarks the n73 was around 3000 and the n80 2200
Had my phone over 1 month and its still as black in paint as ever...
first,n73 is lower than old n70.is the same phone ,but phone memory at n73 is smaller than n70.n73 is very low than n80.warning!!!n80 black is bad because the paint of metal frame around the lcd fade out in one months!!! even if you are very careful.don't put it in the jeans pocket!!!! terrible.nokia make bad mistakes like this often at very expansive mobiles.
And another, the N73 is a triband fone, it DOESNT have WIFI. So that sucs, because all the connectivity tools are in the N80. I guess nokia's engineers tried tweaking the Simbian Os since they knew that this is a powerfull phone.. and ofcourse when the Nokia n83 will be relesed next year, the real great Nseries phones will arive! So just hold on tight, you know how nokia makes a big deal on their ad campaigns, like its the next story, but it really isnt...
I tried transfering a sample N90 video to the n80, and it worked, the n93 video doesnt seem to work at the n80. My theory is that the quality of the video recorder may be adjusted to the n90's, but ofcours, the result will be far beter because the lense of the camera is a 3 mega pixel. all we need now it a good video recorder application, and a fix on the mp4 compression format since the n80 is capable of doing such. I think that the n80 is a great fone and one of the best since it has all the great features in it. Not to mention that it is a QUAD BAND Phone. All you need to do is add a 1 gig mini sd card, (like me) and find a good application/s for it. It is even a great Mp3 player for me. with reguards to the battaery life, just buy a spare one, it wouldent hurt you know... By the way, the phone works how you want it to work, and if your good at maximizing its usage, it could do wonders... If you ca do this, then that means, you are a POWER USER...
i have never used my flash player. what's this all about? where can i download anything to play on it? please help =)
Well guys, I have just take my N80 from Nokia Shop.... After they update the firmware to 4.0623.0.41: PROBLEM...after I turn off my phone and the on again the phone lost it's date and time that I have set previously!!! every time I turn off my phone I must set the date and time again and again and again....

This is probably the best all in one mobilephone i've ever own.I really disagree if anyone says that this phone got lots of problem.Best of the Best if to compare with other phones.....
Which colour is nicer? Silver or Black? I haven't seen the black one in real life. I want my phone to be rather attractive (I'm purchasing it from a friend overseas).
Please share your opinions.
