dear vu5f...most problem your n80s problem is the flex a sort of spring when you slide the phone to open or close......just to be sure you should go to an official nokia store and have it checked....
as far as flex...it costs about $25 to fix here in the Phils.
i haven't realy tried that but it should last around 1day if you do that. Im surfing the net constantly on my N80 in GSM mode (3G And WiFi turned off) and it lasts quite a long time. Im not sure what the firmware number is of the latest firmware.
Ive got fw version: V4.0623.0.42
and its very stable.
@ Tsepz n80 IE
thanks 4 ur reply. If i use music 2hr, 40 capture pic, 20 min video, 30min talking/GSM (without using wifi,3G.) , It can stay 1day ?? Plz give me upgrade firmware version number.
The N80 is great,you can listen to music for more than 3hours, its speaker is louder and clearer than N70. The Silver one is Metal at the front ive got the Silver one. The difference between normal and Internet Edition is mainly just that the Internet Edition has the Internet folder with Download manager and more stable firmware.
Rather get N80, the N91 is great but it has a VERY poor display, and camera aint that great also its texting buttons are realy small. The N91 has much better Sound Quality than N80 but N80's sound quality is not that bad at all,its actualy pretty good,and the screen is just TOO dam good you will love it,its a little monster, WiFi works great and pretty fast when on the net :-) and the rotating gallery is a great feature also the Camera pics arent that bad at all,its a great ALLROUND Multimedia device im loving mine a lot right now! Only let down is the battery life but it aint too bad.
i have this phone for nearly 2 yrs and maybe i can help you. the phone does take a while to start. you have the white screen when you start it and the reason it it takes time to boot the OS. updated firmware should i hope sort this out, but ive been looking and there is no updated firmware yet.
to vu5F about memory card." the max size is 2gb, that the one i am using on my phone and it works brilliantly.
my advise is too stick to the n80. the n80 design is honeslty really poor(it doesnt match the n81) but as far as other features (camera,mp3 player and office and 3rd party application) are concerned,it is really good.
my phone fell over the stairs and the opening system was a bit loose and i had the same problem as you. i fix it with a little piece of toilet paper just at the end of the sliding canal. it is not really a highly technical way to fix this, but nearly one and a half year later, it is still holding. no loose problem anymore.
the battery life of this phone is really good. (as far as the one i have which is the original). the battery life is much better than the n95. but it does not match SE phone like the P1i.
i am not a super technical guy and i am a true user of the n80, anymore question are welcome
i got this fonw yesterday and it already wont work
i turn it on and it gos to a white screen with the backlight urning on and off dos anyone know how to fix this
im sorry for askin this cuz i know it musteve been asked before ..many times..anywayzz..whts the max size of the memcard we can put in the n80?1gb 2gb?any feedback plz..cuz the 128 mb card is simply not enuff
What I should get? This baby with brilliant display and 3mp and rotating gallery, or should I get the music heavy N91 whith poor display and 2mp and no rotating gallery.
The N80 audio quality through headphones is good or N91 is really the king of musicphones? If not, the quality is closer to N91?
I have a chance to buy both phones at the same price and don't offer me N73 because it lacks wi-fi.
bought this fone today. working great........but there is a little lateral twisting movement between the upper and lower parts of the fone........is it normal? someone pls answer........i'm worried abt my new fone........and its my 1st sliding fone...tnx in advance.
In Bulgaria I think Nokia N80 Internet Edition is Number 1! The price is perfekt, full package of functions! In use Standby of battery is environ 2 days!
Have a nice day at everybody! :)
dont buy asurion insurance it's so not worth it!!!! i bought asurion insurance for this phone (n80), and when my phone broke they want to exchange it with a sidekick and tmobile cheap phones....it was so frustrating!
I was planing to buy this phone also, but i'm very unhappy with reviews of other users who have this phone. According to their posts it seems that you can't use the battery more than one day, with hard using (listening mp3, browsing the internet thru wireless, taking pictures, watching video clips...)maybe less then one day, battery capacity is 820 mAh with 192 h stand by time and only 3 hours talk time. I think that SE P1 is much better solution for that money.
i m going to buy this ph tommorow .does its battery is so much weak ??
can i enjoy music more than 2 hr,1.5 hr talking,capture few video & picture in all days ?? which way u used ph . plz advice me! to main 20 hr stand by is perfect. plz replay me.
I don't understand the point with the battery life, how can Nokia made such a mistake with telephone like this, with all those options and capabylities and no power background to use them.
However, my question is can this phone support another battery with higher capacity. If somebody had experience with this please send my e-mail or post your opinion here.
Thanx, c u
@ Tsepz n80

The N80 is great,ive had mine for 4months now and im loving it. Three of my friends have N73s so i have used both phones.
If you dont need WiFi or a high resolution screen then get the N73-Music Edition,it has a better battery, better Music player and bigger screen or otherwise get a N81-8GB
this fone sux. it has been with me for almost 5 months and i hate it!!!although it has the best screen.the reception is tooo bad.this is for people that want a multimedia device rather than a fone.im goin for d900i or se k800.
Any user plz help me. which is the better.n73 or n80.

many application can install but with small RAM size? haha.. with slower processor? with smaller screen size but biggeer resolution? touchscreen is better to navigate, D-pad is harder to navigate application.. keypad also harder to navigate, small screen keyboard is better n faster in typing sms.. I've experienced all this.. my n80 is broke down because of the slider..
