Just been to O2 store...they wont have it until 14th June..and only in Silver..but the guy was unsure..he said they wouldnt know until they turn up..!
Fed up, went to Carphone Warehouse...they have it in black and offered it to me for £49.99 with a tariff (on O2) thats v similiar in price that I pay to O2 direct..and you can keep your number..
All you need is your PAC code...and you have to call O2 for that..
And they won't give it to you over the phone, they'll text you within 48 hrs after they've bent your ear about "how great they are, why are you changing, we're testing the phones, and we'll have it next week bla bla bla" They even said they're always the last company to get new phones.."always, always, always" Great customer service..eh?
But must say, the black is better than the silver..the silver would be nice if it was all silver but black definitely looks heaps better
Two ways to lock the keypad:
1, Press the power button & select 'lock keypad'
2, Slide the phone open & then close it & it will ask if you want to lock the keypad.
As for Firmware I have been trying to track down the lasted version, None of the Nokia service centers in my area have the latest version, i suggest checking your local service center. You can do it yourself but it invalidates the warranty, Up to you!
Let me know if you find a Nokia service center with the latest version & post it for me, Cheers!
I spoke to O2 this morning and they told me to ring back in the afternoon when their systems have been updated. Just rang back now and they advised it was due in today but has been put back yet again to the 15th June! They reckon it's Nokia that keep putting the dates back- but how can they when it's already out on O2 in other shops and out on other networks? I reckon they are just trying to keep us keen and they knew all along it was available on the 15th! I'm getting quite impatient and I think I might go with Vodaphone through phones 4 u. they offered me a good deal although it wasn't better than O2's. Phones 4 u offered max tarriff half price for 6 months and the handset for 50 quid! Good bye O2!!!
for me..N80 is the best..i just bought this phone..and it's damn cool..the price?is not that expensive..Nokia N80 & Accessories Price: US $200.00
I just got it today. The pearl black.
It's very nice.So many functions compared to my K750. Many said that the slide is loosed. But mine is not.And the keypads are okae. No problem at all.Very easy to type message. I love it.
Though, I have one question do any of you know how to keypad lock it. And where can we download the udpate firmware. That's all i need to say.Though the secondary camera is baadd.
I spoke to o2 direct today. And the guy said that they are out today in o2 stores but may not be available to order online/direct till later today/tomorrow as the system needs updating.
Hope that helps everyone!!
Spoke with O2 Select Customer Service yday..they are expecting it either 15th or 16th (vague I know) and only in Silver..
When I asked the guy about the black version, he said that the initial batch will be silver only but thats not to say they won't get them in Black at a later date
He also said that the O2 stores normally have them in a couple of days before the online release date and that you can upgrade there.
I'm tempted to go to Carphone Warehouse and get it there and maybe keep with O2 like some other guy did on here...waited too long for O2 to get it for contract customers..
Vote with your wallet!
For anyone who's interested...
I've just put a 'ScanDisk Ultra II Mini SD 2GB' card in my N80 & it appears to be working fine, although i have not tried to put anything on it yet, Nokia say it only supports 1GB cards.

-Open winAVI Mp4 conerter
-Choose your video file

-Change your video bitrate to 160000
-change audio sample rate to 24000 and audio bitrate to 96000.

Hey Its a universal fighter that can give a punch in ur pocket when it come to buying the phone. overall a good phone great cam the fimware is buggy but then no issue, with firmware update i guess it will get solved over time. its small believe me, i have heard many of then saying that it's big but it isn't it fits in the plam with ease.
Mp3 is very loud,very loud u can blast it to full and can be heard in a distance. when u put the headset have nothing to say but tell u that u can't ear anything but music when u are riding or driving volume controls is on the headset one good thing abt it. it has a new function when ever u recieve a call it can say the caller name by itself but for that to happen u need to activate the option from the profile.the new web is amazing u got to see it to believe it. video recording is good but i felt the n70 records better video then n80 but then n80 doen't record that bad either.It has a radio which is not that strong it basically loses frequency very often in closed space. The flash is strong and the night mode is good within its distance of flash otherwise the pic comes granny still cannot compete against the digital cam being such and expensive phone the day mode can be compared to digital cam.
I would give 8.5 out of 10 for its function and the camp. the battery life u need to have charger in ur pocket belive me very bad especially when using the cam very often. it open word doc with ease no probs like other nokia phone.i would say if ur technology freak then its a good deal to buy these phone is going to be uncommon one from nokia coz its expensive other wise wouldn't recommend to buy it plus its a slider which people r not fashioned off with, they like candy bar in their hands with everthing. it really show of its pixel in the main display when u are viewing the pic it look more clearer and sharper then pc screen what else to say abt the phone a black pearl in hand nokia great.
I got my N80 and sold it after 1 week. The features are quite good and price is reasonable. The problem why i sold it is because it shut off by itself at least 3 to 5 times a day and the key pads are quite difficult to press especially when doing text messages.
Hi guys thanks for your answers.
But i have already tried a number of encoder especially winavi n imTOO. i guess the problem is in the settings of the mp4?
