To add to CHHIMBAL's post, switching to Macro Mode is also necessary for the Barcode Reader app. to work if you have it.
To toncezs: Nokia phones used to have that software included in the cd wherein you could put in a username and password, but that was only if you were to use your phone as the modem. It doesn't seem necessary nowadays as a N-series phone is by itself a capable multimedia device. I think you know that as far as connection settings are concerned, the phone only asks for your WLAN key.
The difference between the N80 and the N80IE lies only in added features. The N80IE has more in terms of applications for searching and connecting to WLAN signals and using the N80 as an internet phone through VOIP (voice-over-internet protocol).
To xelibry: No, the N80 does not support DVB-H. It does not have the hardware nor the software for DVB-H, but it still is capable of streaming videos through GPRS, 3G and even WLAN. Fortunately, some of its N-series siblings support DVB-H so you can stay within the same phone family.

Go to nseries.com and download SMS accelerator. it is a freeware and counts 3kb in size so you can even install it via email attachment lol. the application is invisible after installation. believe me this little thing will boost sending sms.
N73 and N80 have the same Music Player BUT the N73-ME has the N95/N81 Music Player.
i LOVE this phone. N80 has good front camera and i like that cuz i also use it as a mirror. but, i also disappointed. the battery is bad ! i must bring charger everywhere i go. thats so terrible.
I don't know how to reformat the N80, but after re-install or upgrade de flash memory, it is back to factory settings with working original apps.
I did this when the wifi failed to build a new connection. Make sure to backup you phonebook and calendar data and the applications you installed in the internal memory and remove the SD card.
More on reformatting the N80, there is something that is called a "hard reset" that can be done by pressing a combination of keys simultaneously. This is in contrast to a "soft reset" where you leave the phone idle with the battery out for some time. Reading old posts would tell what those keys are. I have never tried doing a "hard reset" before, and as such I could not tell how effective it could be.
The internet carries vast amount of information on how to reformat the N80. There are some that would claim it as a D-I-Y, although personally I'd rather hand my phone over to the pros.
The N80 and N73 both have the same music player and equalizer setup. There isn't any difference in sound quality when using heaphones (although some claim that the N73 ME has a better audio quality than the regular N73).
Be that as it may, the difference lies in the speakers those two phones have.
The ribbon refers to the flex cable which (basically) connects the bottom half to the top half of the phone, and it is something that slider and flip (or folding) phones can't do without.
Flex cables are prone to tearing.
The bar code reader application can be downloaded free from the Nokia N-Series web/wap site. Since the N80 does not have an autofocus camera lens, you have to switch to macro mode to make the reader work.
