Just got an N80 last week. It has a great display, is a good music player (even though the headphone volume is low) and has a fantastic browser. However, the battery life is pathetic (today it lasted less than 12 hours with 30 mins of MP3 and otherwise low usage) and the keys do not stay locked in my pocket because the slider moves slightly and this automatically takes the keylock off. Good job it was free otherwise I'd be disappointed.
Hi all, anyone knows where can i get firmware update for Nokia N80?
i've been trying to find out from 3 the release date for the n80,they wont tell me as they are trying to fob me off with a 6280,the call centre in india keeps telling me they have no plans to release it,but other people are telling me otherwise, just no dates
Just 30 days after launch dudes r flashing selling ad fed up of N80 theTopper socalled.I hav never needed to flash or update SE ,SAM mobiles so as u people.Nokia luck is running out only to lag behind auto focus cam flash xeon video resolution 640x480.Firmware is bugged and better life a day max.Carrying a Brick n pocket or Hand is foolish.N83 would definately be released n 4th qtr to our amazment,800$ a pcs cell would be sold per KG.---------?

Well I'm back again with an update for you all! In my first review I said I was so far impressed with the phone but it had it's glitches and I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up having 6 of these in the first year! I WAS RIGHT!!! After only 22 days, I couldn't get on the WAP, my gallery photo's had all vanished of thier own accord, it had frozen up 4 times, I lost count of how many times it rebooted itself, and the final nail in it's coffin was when the red phone key decided it didn't want to work anymore, meaning I couldn't hang up on any phone calls!! I rang Orange and I received N80 number 2 the same day (last Friday) great service from them and no complaints at all! Now for the good bit (yes really, there is one!). I took this phone with me to see Bon Jovi at Milton Keynes on Saturday, and it was the only recording equipment I took. I can honestly say I was blown away by it's performance!!!! On the 128 memory card, I got nearly 70 pictures at 3mp resolution, and about 20 mins of video! Sure, the video isn't dvd quality, but I never expected it to be and I'm more than happy with the results, which I've safely transferred to my pc. The photo's have come out amazingly well, even the ones taken on maximum zoom, and when I've printed these off, I can only knock it for losing some colour quality and looking a little (honestly!) blurry, but like I said, they were on maximum zoom, so I still have no complaints! This little phone did the job brilliantly and I honestly wouldn't swap it for anything else available right now. Yes, the N93 will have optical zoom which is fabulous, but it will also be a lot bigger. If I end up having to claim a replacement every month for the next year, I am of the opinion that I don't care! For what it can do, it's worth it to me! I will be upgrading the memory card to either a 1 or 2 gb card, but other than that, I won't be tampering with it in any way. The Orange software can stay for all I care, I find Orange as a company incredibly friendly and helpful and I wouldn't leave them! Well, I've said my bit (and what a big bit it was!)now it's up to you to make up your own minds!
I got my n80 last Friday and overall great phone only complaint is that the battery is CRAP, seriously thinking about sending phone back.
Guys!!stop saying the cam is crap. First, check the photo size option to the highest. Next, make sure ur cam is not in macro mode!!!which mean switch the button near the camera lens away from the "flower" sign!
People on O2, I rang O2 direct this morning asking for my pac code and they told me the phone won't be available until end of June now. Even though you can order the phone online apparently O2 direct are still testing the phones and they said the phones you order online are not tested! What a load of B******! I'm now switching to Orange!
Calm down dude. IMO, N80 = Camera - AF - Optical Zoom + PDA - Touchscreen + Phone, which is an 'all-in-one' phone. Try to get those three and see if it's as small OR as cheap as the N80 is.
N80 is the most terrible blunder i hav done n buying one.It is only a cell but the price against gadgets incld is fluke. I can buy seprate nikon 5 MP cam with 1GB storage,a 2 MP mobile K750i Se extra 1GB card mem and still save some money to shop around.We r getng hypnotized by new models every day instead even same sofware slight cosmetic change same dito design for JUST A CELL.If we hav PATIENCE same N80 upgraded get cheaper after 3 months.Heavens is not going to fall u can still get call from existing sets.PLS think all of u on forum BRATS
the blue light blinking was nothing to do with ur bluetooth, its actually indicate ur phone under 'Sleep Mode' but its powered on, purpose is to save battery power.
to deactivate the indication(blue light blinking)-> goto 'Tools', 'Settings', 'Phone', 'Display', 'Sleep Mode', select 'Off'
Has anyone been having issues with the signal strength on this phone...cause I just bought it, havent faces any issues other than.. the signal being too weak or non existant many times..
1)hey, is really dificult to write a mensage?
2)are really the top keys hard to use, you know the number 1,2,3. or the menu key?
3)the cellphone can get open in your poket if you are walking, running or something like that?
4)what do you say, buy this phone, or wait for another???
sorry, i know there are too many cuestions, but i need some help :):):):)
if ur music isnt very loud then open equalizer and make a new preset, put all 5 bands near the top (play around till u get gud loud sound) and then select back then activate, u gotta use gud quality mp3s tho coz will sound distorted!
I am using one rite now, it's quite impressive.
It's just a bit thick but the overall size is smaller than N70 or so...it's ok for me.
