A phone which gives alot of problems when I first purchase it. The in-built web browser doesn't do a good job as touted, it hangs, freezes and pops you out to the main menu of the phone when you try to reload pages or just simply to try and connect to particular websites. The latest firmware version (3.0617.0.6) is not of any good use. After upgrading (the nokia technican told me that the web browser problem will be resolved when I upgrade the firmware, as they are quite certain that it's the firmware problem) my keypad starts to "freeze", doesn't respond to any button pressing at all, the phone will "auto shutoff" by itself. I wouldn't advise user to upgrade the firmware, unless there's a better version out. I've been advised to send my phone in for further diagnosis. I'm pretty sure there's nothing much they can do about it. Using the Opera web browser is much better than the nokia version as it doesn't have any problems loading any websites. Other than these problems, this is a pretty handy phone, however with so many problems I wouldn't say it's value for money.
I have just ordered the N80 through 02 managed to get it free of charge which always makes me smile. Its on its way and should be delivered on monday. Just a quick question, is the wi-fi easy to use and is it free if you go to a wi-fi hotspot eg cafes etc?
Can any uk users provide any advice?
Really looking forward to getting my hands on it. It also says on the o2 website about it having tv output, anyone experimented with this?? is it any good?
OMG i got the nokia N80 today, its absolutely beautifull it works like a dream yes battery life is not the best but for a smart phone its not bad! this isnt a normal phone this is like a minature computer so if you compare what a notebooks battery life is to the N80 i think youd all just *hush* ITS OUT IN SOUTH AFRICA call nashua mobile or virgin mobile

Can someone help me? I want to buy this fone but unlocked. Does the WLAN works in an unlocked fone?
hey red, by home network i meant i had a wifi router at home so it was my "home network". I know there's another Home Network option under the connectivty menu so you might be confused. Your right, if you wanna surf using your wifi at home go to tools ->settings->connection-> access points-> new access point->use default. Then on the data bearer select wireless LAN. then under WLAN network name, select search for network. This lets the phone search for available wifi networks. just enter the other stuff and you're ready to surf!
hey marlon, i got my Nokia N80 from ebay! (where else??) You guys , if ur gona get the n80, IMHO get the silver one its sooo badass cool!!!
hey vince, im in the US too and on cingular too and planning to buy the n80 sometime. ive read some stuff about the wi fi, someone said before not to choose the home network, but the available...i dont know i cant remember, anyway, how do you check the firmware version?
just to say ive had both the n80 and the e900 both went back. n80 is a good phone but the battery life is not good at all. you must turn off everything including bluetooth otherwise it eats battery. wifi isnt the easiest to set up. the phone isnt that bulky in your hand but is in your pocket. it only has one alarm SE k800 has 4 i think.
orange are having allot of problems as their firmware is different to that of nokias ( orange have changed theirs ) so problems have been created from this. some programes are not working well at all. this is only on orange as fair as i am aware though. check nokia.com forums for details.
if you can put up with a big phone ( have big pockets or a bag to carry it round in ) and can put up with a crap battery this phone is quite good.
this did not however suit me and i didnt like having to turn off all the programes and extras just to get extra power.
also i forgot to add on the e900 post this phone is quite slow and takes along time just to turn on. this is when i had the phone brand new with nothing on it so i would hate ot imagine what it was like when i had more information/photo/programmes/message/etc stored on it to slow it down even more.
people coming on here telling us off about poor battery !! If nokia used a lerger battery or a lithium polymer type things would improve without to much agro.Samsung are as bad with there silly battery lifes,,they can make there fones as luxurious & thin as they like but you only get unreallistic real life battery times and there aimed at the buisness user???I think s/e use better tolerance electronics & lithium polymer batteries to get there good talktimes just why cany nokia do it?

omg! i got my nokia n80 silver yesterday! my first impression was its so small!!!! i cant believe that after lookion at its pictures on the internet this megapixel monster would come in a small package! it was like my baby..(i get emotional when i get a new phone!) i couldnt really believe i thought it was like a dummy toy! the slide and body is solid, i gues some people think its loose coz its so small and kinda fragile, but its really solid. and i got the latest firmware (v3.0617.0.6) preloaded i dont need to update! sweet!!! and i was impresed that the flash was powerful! it was like a real digital camera! and the pics are sooo awesome too! and the most amazing part is the wifi! it took me only a minute to config my phone to my home network and i surfed easily! no problems here! its an outsanding phone. by the way , im in the US and i use cingular. its reception is very good and clear! and to think that the fun would end, i was even surprised that the phone even says the caller's name! awesome!!!
Hi, biggzy would love a customer like u.. oh.. hhaa
Do u know what's a mobile phone? To be carried anywhere to make call and doing other stuffs too. Why don't u blame on Nokia. Have many ideas but cannot solve the most basic function, that is to have good battery life, instead of carrying charging around, and worrying battery will not last in 12 hours especially when u use bluetooth ear set, or transfer files..
What's the point if u cannot do such things when battery life will drain off so fast... Ask yourself then, any meaning of having this phone?
ppl who moan about the battary being to weak, u gota remember the n80 has hi res screen which uses more power, music is louder than previous nokias, louder music means more power consuption, wifi which obviously uses a lot of power, so after considering all the above i think 1 day usage is gud for a mobile of this technology! so stop ur moaning and go and buy a 3310 if u want long battary life!
