Hi, in my opinion, nokia done well by releasing this phone before K800i which supposed to be the only phone that can beat n80.Sony Ericsson should release thier W950 and K800 as soon as possible.
I have read that TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) have chosen Nokia N80 as "Best Mobile Imaging Device 2006" and this is the result of being very slow in releasing your products "sony ericsson".
iv never got the nokia IM app working on any fone, im using xmessenger at the mo on n80, its a jar file, alsn eMSN and quickMSN r ok and work on n80!
John from the States. You'll want to wait until Nokia finishes adding the 850 mhz bans of the high spped bands. Nokia sent a model without the 850 band (high speed band, not regular GSM) Once Cingulat adds it to the phone, Cingulat will start selling it in the states. Any N80 you buy from anyone today, doesn't have that band available, and it's noy something you just update the firmware to get. The guts of the phone itself has to be changed.
If you go to Nokia USA, and to the N80 page, the first small print exlains all this.
Ombe again we in the states get the I don't carem I don't care from our service providers. They'd be out of budiness within months in just about any other country.
The states akways have, and always will get crappy phones for their networks, and a few steps befing in technology.
"GEEK HEADS UNITE TO TREAT THE US LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLS......AT LEAST.
hOW CAN YOU TAKE THE NUMBER ONE MARKET IN THE WORLD, AND YEAR AFTER YEAR, THROW IT AWAY?
I was only afraid of N80's battery. Having used hard the phone for about 6 days in a row (switching it off only 2 nights) I still have 3 out of 7 bars of battery left. So the battery is perfect, DONT hear what people say here. Most of them havent even seen the N80 yet with their eyes!
In reply to some posts re: When r 3 in the UK getting the n80. Was told by a sales assistant in the 3 shop that they r expecting delivery of them this week. Keep an eye out or on the website. www.three.co.uk/
Hi, has anyone successfully used the IM application in the N80 to link with MSN messenger? How do you set it up? I've been having problem with it. tks.
Muahaha stainless steel has come back into stock and guess what! Yep it carries a cheaper price tag than the pearl black version! A far cry from the initial release where the silver version cost $130 in excessof the black version.
Trust me pearl black looks nicer. Silver just looks too darn heavy and yellowish.
some say that black is better than the silver one. why?? doesn't the silver on look sophisticated and the black looks cheap don't you think? well if black is really better, i'll probably get it.
That's a good point. It seems most people with the phone reside in other countries. Those that are in the US don't seem to be very vocal about their location.
I'm going to wait for there to be a US release before getting the phone with the hopes that the price will be lower. And a few more reviews. However, everything (excluding A2DP) seems to be great. I'd expect the video quality to be less than steller in 1) low light and 2) zoomed in. Some negative comments on here just seem like trolling more than actuall recounts of bad experiences.
If you want this on 3, buy it sim free and put in your existing 3 sim, if you havent got one then buy one or get another 3 contract
can anyone tell me.. where to get n80 softwares and themes ? i couldnt install any software or themes to this phone... please teach me.. thanks
Does anybody that lives in the US have this phone? I'm confused if alot of you are from the US or not. I wanted to know how well the n80 works with cingular service and what problems anyone has run into. Also, I wondered what the level of service, if any, one can expect with this phone
ive had this phone for about 2 weeks now and im happy with the handset but im concerded about the battery seems to run down rather fast..from not doing very much, is there a bigger battery you can get for this phone or nething like that?
within 2 days, i realised that there is a serious problem with my set.
when i set the network to 3G, i couldn't make or receive calls and smses. but i can when its in the gsm mode.
so i urge all those who have yet to used the upgraded 3G simcard, to quickly check if your set faces the same problem.
i've set mine back to Nokia Care and they're replacing the motherboard of the n80.
M still loyal to Nokia but such occurences are part of consumer's risk.
enjoy the phone! (i only got to use it like..less than 24 hours, sob sob)
which is better MP3 sound speaker N80 or SE K800?
does N80 can compete it? or does N80 have a stereo speaker sound?
Does anyone know what this fault is that has delayed its launch on O2?
Does anyone know if the Black version will be available on O2?
