I have this phone since october 2007 and never really had a problem with it. Only the battery does not last long, but that is almost part my fault for not charging it. Furthermore, I find that this phone was technologically advanced for when it came out and it still can compete with many of the newer phones today. I give it a 8 out of 10. Its a great phone.

You may never recover your deleted files back. If you eventually discover how, better get in touch with every investigating organization in the world because they'll surely want you to work for them.
bachelor, 14 Aug 2008how can i use the internet connection of my n80? need wifi?? are all n80 is internet edition??With the N80, you can surf the web thru two built-in browsers; Services and Web (which is found within the My Own folder). You can connect via GPRS (WAP), EDGE, UMTS (3G) and WiFi (WLAN).
As I just said several posts below, there are two versions of the N80 (N80 normal and IE)... Well, three if you count the one for the American market (UMTS 1900 instead of 2100).
Hi, I have had my N80 for years and the screen has started to go (white screening) I have also deleted files pictures and txts in error and need to know how these can be recovered. I have tralled endlessly through web sites trying to find links downloadable software etc and really need a step-by-step guide on recovering deleted files for for instance cache or what have you (confused), please can you help or advise on best course of action or point me in the right direction. Sad really, but my N80 is giving up the ghost!

Scricy, 12 Aug 2008can anyone tell me what's the difference between the simple n80 and n80 internet edition pls??... moreI've answered this question before.
The N80 has been around since 2006, so I believe that the phone should be one of the cheapest Nseries with WLAN (WiFi).
The 2 versions of the N80, the normal and the IE have lots of things in common. The only difference is that the IE has additional applications for VOIP (internet calls) not found on the normal one. Even so, some N80 normal users claimed to have upgraded their phones' firmware to the IE's. And if you're not bothered to do the same, there are 3rd party applications for VOIP (like fring, for example) that works on both normal and IE versions.
Both versions are available in gray and black. I actually own the normal version in gray. The main flaw of the N80 and all slider phones and even folding phones is that they are structurally dependent on one component that is bound to break even with normal use. What you read about issues and problems with what is called the flex cable are true.
If you consider yourself a real fan and won't mind having your phone fixed in a year or two, then by all means get the N80. Otherwise, get a different phone in bar form. It'll be more durable.

Have the earpiece checked, and the flex cable as well. But I'm betting more on the flex cable on this.

Kel, 20 Jul 2008Hey there?Is is worth selling off my N80 ? I've been really annoyed by it. One minute the msg ... moreMy friend has that kind of problem but was quickly fixed. Some kind of a part was replaced. Just take it to a service center.
I remember when N80 was my dream phone 2 years ago. I loved the fact of a 3mpx camera (in that time it was the best we could get) and Wi-Fi, if I'm not wrong it was between the first S60s with Wi-Fi included. I'm still thinking that I would like to have this phone even if I'm thinking to buy a N78
I bought this cell in 2006 still have it in a box. I might fix it the cell opens but the screen is blank white screen.
