its battery life is to be said dead!!! so short even after keeping the brightness on2. mind u give it a 20X zoom on its camera & your battery goes down. Software needs to be updated as prepaid sim wil not show onscreen balance. music is average. not at all loud as expected. phone sucks.
Hi GABB!!! Transfer all your files to the memory card, including your contacts and text messages then REFORMAT your PHONE, that should do the trick. It happend to my phone before, I brought it to a Nokia Care Center and after 10 minutes, it's working wonderfully. Of course once in a while, if you encounter the same problem again, all you have to do is reformat your phone. New version for N80 software is not our yet. GOODLUCK and ENJOY ur N80!
a lot of people complain about short battery life. maybe you should turn off the screensaver and the wallpaper, that helps a lot you know. those two features are simply for design purposes and it ate up a lot of the battery life.
this is one expensive phone although most 3G phone are expensive. but in fairness, the black colored version of this phone is awesome. if only i have the money and if most of my friend or contacts have 3g phone which all does not have yet cause it still relatively new and as i mentioned earlier, the phones are expensive. there are chaeper one like samsung z510 or sony ericson K-something but i think the features are surely limited not like this one.
its exellent,, im using it and theres no problem in it!! it is the king of all phones.. its battery consumption is not so bad as evry1 are saying. i listen muzik, attend calls,sms alot but still the battery after 2 dayz can still work!! and at most its 3dayzz.the video in low light is not bad nor exellent but its very good!!! da low lite and short battery life are all rumorzz..!! and one thing more,, the sound quality is exellent,, da wifi works at its best ever on a mobile phone... its just the BEST
for using wireless lan u need to be at a hot spot i.e a place that has wireless lan.
after that just search for the network and connect to it
Guys i need help!!! Why does my n80 hang for at least 30 seconds everytime i send a text message? Anyone experiencing the same problem? I close all applications before i send but it still happens. Any theories? Thanks!
I think no matter the battery might be bad its still a excellent phone
What kind of softwares are supported? Tell me where u can download softwares for the N80.
Does anyone know, is the phone very lagggy?? My friend had N70 and whenever he open or reply a msg he will have to wait quite a few seconds. Does it happen to this phone too??
hey whats up guys ,
this is a question for the ppl that own an n80 handset is it quick , coz i work at an optus dealer and i find the n70 and n91 a lil slow when configuring customers handsets
the battery is very suck...
i hate to recharge my batt everyday...
Hrm... August now for Australia eh, whats one more month i spose, hopefully the start of august! :D and silver only? :( I wanted the black...
Got mine from HK couple of day ago,such a nice 3G phone and affordable(HKD4500.00=USD555.00),only drawback is just the batterry life but to cover it I'd paid another HKD120.00 for a second battery and a desktop charger,mine is Black,personally I like te Black one better than the Silver coz it looks good and feels smaller and different with the old N70.Overall it's a best 3G around for that sort of money,remember it's a phone not a PC so don't expect too much from it(it gives us more than enough anyway).For the Oz folks,the phone will be available in August-06 and the stiker will be AUD995.00(available in Silver only).
yeah, good phone indeed, if only u can leave its battery... i mean, what's the use of all this feature without proper battery???? can you do wifi, pnp, radio, use 3mp camera, browsing using minimap browser, email, etc, etc, when your battery flat in a day or less?? eslecially since many of you mention about wifi, od you know that the n80 battery will be flat after usage of wifi less then 3-4 hours? sigh...
Great phone with a lot of features! Navigating the web can be hard since there is no touch screen function, the battery life is very short, and the multi-directional key is hard to use which always causes you to hit the keys arround.
I got the N80 like a few months ago now. Oh dear.. it keeps turning off without reason when switching between camera and video, closing programs too fast, switching mp3's, or doing any multi-tasking, etc.. sliders getting shitty along with the battery life, navigation getting slow. i loved the phone when i first got it but reliability just like most other nokia smart phones is terrible. I'd never have anything similar from nokia again.
