This is for theloneamerican
Well Im an american as well...
And Well of course YES!! you will be able to use the full function of the phone.. with the exeption of the 3G UMTS that we don't about..
The WLAN is a different story.. Don't you worry about that..
What i was sayin is.. CINGULAR was suppose to get this phone..
They backed out.. due to the WLAN being able to call for free..
They want it off the phone in order to get it with their CINGULAR service.. but no worries feel free to get it unlocked.. you have limited warranty with Nokia USA anyways.. for the 1st time right? hehehe...
sorry but i'm a little confused here. the phone is quadband, so if it is a factory unlocked phone, it can be used with a t-mobile or cingular SIM card, right? i'm american and have used both a 6230i and d600 in the states on t-mobile no problem. so, i'm just wondering if the phone is WCDMA 2100 (and that isn't supported here as we all know), can i still use the wifi component? basically, i'm asking if i buy this phone (european/asian/whatever version), can i still use it in its full capacity with the exception of 3G/WCDMA-related capabilities? i'm thinking yes, obviously, but i would like some confirmation. thanks!
We know that Jo..
There are alot of WiFi Phones out there now.. And Pocket PC's..
The only thing is Provider don't support it.. they are not in favor of it..
You guys ever heard of Skype?
You can make free internet calls.. if you have WiFi on your phone.. you wouldn't need your provider..
That is why they like the N80 as a phone but take the WLAN out!
Hehehehe.. Funny!! HELL NO!!
We are favor of WiFi!!
I've just notified (grassed up) Verisign that the "http://www.mobileworld-inc.com/" people may be dodgy, and let them deal with it - I hate scammers!!
hey, there are wifi phones in the US, nokia 9500 =) and probably some others too
A lot of people seem to be asking about this mobile world inc. As i said a few days ago it is a scam. There have been complaints from people that they dont send products after payment. And the payment method- you guessed it, the old ebay scammers favourite western union.
lol there's no way they're gona take out wifi :P are you saying that in the US they have no wlan phones? If they took out the wifi in this phone i think people would go for the N92 instead. But with wifi this phone is definitly better than n92 even though it doesn't have dvb tv broadcasting. You can get TV on this phone if ur on vodafone live
yeah http://www.mobileworld-inc.com is one big scam. They got fake verisign certificates and stuff. They change their domain every few weeks cos it keeps getting shutdown. It's probably the same people who are scamming on ebay...
This is for Mario..
hehehe.. Your right man..
I don't think US providers would appreciate it if your making a free internet call on your phone using wifi WLAN..
Yupz I highly doubt it.. Cingular is not goin to buy tht phone unless they take out the WLAN.
Especially here in NYC whoa.. WIFI signals everywhere..
Actually i think it is, i done a "whois" check on the domain, and it turns out it has only been setup a few days ago, even though it says on the bottom of the website, copyright since 1998! Also the international buyers have to send the money via western union... bit dodgey
Hey guys, i found a website which was a sponserd link in google, they are selling the nokia n80 for 500USD with free dilivery, however i dont think the company is real, it might be a scam??
Apparantly Carphone warehouse say they are releasing the N80 on the 26th Jan. Also another guy saw the T3 mag info that the N80 would be released before the end of january.
Check out some of the programs you should be able to get for the N80:
Some of them are cool
All the latest nokia (unreleased) phones on eBay are scams.
If the person selling has a high feedback then their account has been hacked and the scammers are using it to place their ads.
You will notice all the people advertising the phones say to Contact them at their own email address and not through ebay. They will then ask you to use western union to transfer the money. They say they are in the UK or US when they are more likely from Germany or Romania. If you try to buy your n80 off these people, say goodbye to your money!
I suggest people to start bidding on ebay only after the phone is effectively released. It reduces the risk of being hi-jacked by cams. Be excited but be smart. This phone sure look gorgeous...tell me about it, but it's not worth being ripped off....lololol
Look with good or bad specs you will probably want to have n80 because this phone its just beautiful and have all of those toys in it that the others don't!
N80 will rock the whole world in soon!!
Check out this site:
Its got a priview of n80. A hint abt the pic quality. The reviewer didnt post a pic taken from it and is waiting for the final version, which means the pic was not that good. Other wise he would have posted the pic then and there.. :)
First of all, i read that the phone is having a nagging when u switch between menus.Thats the same reason y i preferred Nokia n70 over Sony's W800. If n80 is having the same problem, i shud better stick with n70.
Secondly, if N80 has Carl Zeisis cam, it is gonna be lot expensive than a similar class phone.
Lastly, the one i saw on eBay was a cheat who was claiming to sell this phone. I read out the review of the seller.
Well, we will wait and see how the prices are. Hope Nokia wont compromise on the quality of the OS :)
I remember, Cingular should have released the N80 on the 18th of this month. They did not want Nokia to implement the wifi thou because of fears of people using Skype to place phone calls over local wifi hot-spots (N80 is using the S60 OS which has a Skype terminal!) Nokia refused to disable the WIFI in order to protect compatibility and the Name brand. That in turn led to the phone's cancellation by Cingular :-( . So yes a worldwide, late January release is possible.
T3 Magazine (UK) seem to reckon that the N80 is set to be released at the end of January in the UK...I'll check with my local CFW (Edinbuegh) as I also hae me doots!
This is for bob..
You wanna know something.. Ebay is an unpredictable place.. It can be true and could be a scam..
You have to read the fine prints..
And yeah this could be legit.. and you can have this phone in a week.. it might have a problem.. why would a seller sell something like that.. if i get my hands on these right now.. the only price i can give you is $5,000 take it or leave it.. remember its an hot item..
So you gotta think of does.. you have to open your mind through all these options that can happen..
Bottom line is! Use your common sense!!
