I got my N80 the other day and have since updated the Firmware to version 3.0617.0.6 and it seems to run really well now. I used to have problems with the WLAN, but now its fine. To check your firmware type *#0000# and look at the top lines last number (mine was 3 before) To upgrade the firmware either take it to a local Nokia service centre or do it yourself using the USB cable that came with your phone - For more help goto http://nokia.dogtoe.com - This site has the firmware to download and full intructions. I choose V08 language pack (you will know what I mean when you goto the site) When you follow the instructions - the one thing I wouldnt follow is updating the phone in offline mode, i.e. without sim card, I tried and failed that way, so I put the sim card in and tried again - It worked perfectly. Another thing it sorted was the memory full problem I was having before.
I just got my N80 a couple of days ago and im wondering if there is an option in the alarm to make it repeatable daily or not?!
Annoyed - when you pay top dollar for a 3MP phone only to have the cheaper 2MP N70 outperform it on video recording quality, you can't help but feel a little 'annoyed'!!!!!
I bought the N80 in Hk ( 5300 HKD) yesterday and i am very satisfied with it.
I just have two questions :
1) Why is there only 22 MB free on the 128 MB SD card. I tried to analyse the card but there is no file more than 1MB. I have put any files on it yet. Should it format the card ?
2) I have a wireless connection at home and each time i connect from my computer, i have to put internet provider user name and password. My N80 has found the WLAN but it doesn't ask me user name and password. How to solve that ? I looked through the user manual yesterday but in vain....
Thanks for help
Hi there people. I just got the n80 yesterday. But i think its abit dissapointing coz i hated 2 things about it.(1. u know when u scroll the phone book n press call the green button it hanged(more like nothing happen but after i restarted it was back to normal) 2. the gallery.it mixes everything up the pics n the videos. not like the old phones where u can go to yr own folders n stuff(bit more privacy) well i havent test out everything yet. But of course i am a newbie with this phone so it could be my mistake. Please someone help me out with some friendly advice. And also i am hoping that the phone can be upgraded(err like firmware?) can anyone tell me how to do it?
To DRU_MP4 HELP
Not sure of the settings but you might want to do a search for "smart movie player" It is a pretty nice app that plays movies on the phone (has a much nicer FF and RW) and also comes with a converter to install on your PC. There are free trial versions so you can give it a test run and I think you can purchase it for around 20 US if you look around a bit. Also, it is compatable with the N80s Symbian 9.1 OS.
To Mike and others wondering about battery life
As several others have also said. I have had no problems with the battery. I changed my nework mode to GSM only instead of auto select. Also, I ran the battery down until the phone gave batt low messages the first time I used it. Since then I have not been able to use more than a bar or two over the course of a day.
I am in the US as well and I ended up buying mine off of ebay. The person I purchased mine from was rose528400. He was good to work with and I did receive my phone as described. The only catch was since it came from singapore the charger wouldnt plug into the wall :) Radio Shack had a universal charger for about $10 so it wasnt a problem.
hi there i still dont have the phone but iam getting it really soon.. iam confused because some nokia n80 say camera 3 mp and some say 3.2.. whats the different can someone tell me please.. thanks
Now I am getting this error: "WLAN: Unable to connect: WLAN Network not found."
What should I do now??? And yes, the router is ON and signal strength is Excellent!
Is there such thing like software update in this phone?
In SE they have software update.
Anyone here can answer this.
By the way WLAN seeker where you from?
Another reason why it didn't ask you which connection you will use maybe because you do not have any other access point to use.
here's my iM' email@example.com
hope to know you.
Re: WLAN Seeker.
If you have a router there there will be no problem. Ok try this.
Go to tools---settings---connection---Wireless LAN.
In the Show Availability, change it to
Another option will appear (Scan for networks) the option is your's whether to scan for WLAN per minutes.
The router must be on.
I tried as per ur instructions however, when i try to connect it doesn't ask for whih one I want to use. it just says WLAN: WLAn Network Not Found.
Thanks to the guy with the advise on changing to gsm mode to increase battery life it worked a treat, batt has lasted ages. Its good to see some useful info on this site. I have had the phone 2weeks and it is brilliant, no probs,happy to be back with Nokia. Pete from NZ.
with the shxt video quality and easy to loose slide, this phone is really over priced
You can buy it at http://www.mobilebee.com/PhoneDetailsID777.html , the store is in NY
OMG - annoyed - Your well wrong. sorry but people bought the N80 for the camera, which is 3MP. which ov course means high qualitity pictures. people also thought that because of good pcitures it must have good videos. theres somthing difently wrong with the video wether its firmware or the cam, i hope its firmware so i can update it. OMG the video on this phone is CRAP
I can't find the way to change the last name to fisrt name in address book in the n80, in the contact/options menu it not apears settings or something like that. please help me
After reading all of the review. I really love this phone and plan to get it but I see so many people didnt like the N80 battery and the slide getting loose.. So you guy think it worth to buy it?? Thanks
I still havent the N80.. but i will buy it..
Well you say about the Video quality.... yes that is a mobil.. but some people say that the video of the N70 is better?
so that is because in the N80 can put well the seetings of the camera? or is that need a new firmware?
