i've used N80 for 3 months, i found the reception is not good, the signal bar always not full. in some places it will become no network, but my friends(W810i) use the same sim card... the signal reception is much better than N80. although the function is well, the poor reception make it becomes worst.
n80 internet edition is a full phon it is not good in bloutoth it is v1.2 bloutoth
oh for the person who asked about the wlan (802.11b and 802.11g) u can google it, the facts i know so far is 802.11b is cheaper but slower (11mb per second plus it cannot be connected to 802.11g)
and with 802.11g it is much faster (54mb per second plus it connects to 802.11g and 802.11b, also 802.11g is more newer and more widely used now days)
so yeh both are just wlan its just that 802.11g is faster and more upto date
OMG how can u say the n80 is bad....its a mad phone...3mp camera, bluetooth, wireless lan (wifi), voice tag, office, a really good music player, video call(3G), radio.....there are so much features...just check out the specifications.... if u look at most phones they have like half the features of the n80, the n80 is a quality top of the reange business mobile....and just like most business mobiles it comes with so many features that are not included in most mobiles.
If ur considering getting a phone and ur not use to using all the features the n80 offers...than there is no point getting the n80.... the n80 is for ppl who are use to the symbian OS, i think for any one who is new...just stick with somethig like N70 or nokia 6288...
oh and for all those ppl who keep on saying things bout the battery life.....u should let it drain to the lowest possible then recharge...that way u get the most of ur battery...plus there are ways to save power
such as turning bluetooth off wen not in use, and also turning off wlan wen not in use, also u can adjust the screen brightness and put sleep mode on and also set the screen to turn off quicker (standby mode).....plus there is a program called "taskspy" where u can shut down programs that ur not using...coz leaving programs open wen ur not using them can drain ur battery quicker on any phone.
my phone usually lasts 2 and half days....and i usually listen to music for 3-4hours a day and also play games....
so battery life shouldnt be a problem.....coz i've seen phones which run out of battery in 1 day without even any use
well i hope my comments help people who are intending to buy the n80 and ppl who need tips on how make the phone work better for them
never buy n80
n80 has very very poor battery life..moreover we cabt see balance on our n80 by requesting..its a firmware problem..
n73 is 100% better then n80 in camera, sorroun sound, big screen , camera lens protector, better battery life,better looks..
go for n73 if u dont need wifi

I really need help!!
While updating my N80 (internet edition), the update was disrupted with a window that stated "Phone Recovery" and it stated for me to remove the battery and charger, then put it all back in and try and power on the phone. After this was done, it still didn't turn on.
What does this mean? Why did it happen? Now my phone won't power on or anything. When I hook up the wall charger to it, it won't even charge.
Nothing happens, it seems as though my phone is just dead. Can this be repaired? I did nothing to it while it was hooked up and randomly this happens, it just updated and then randomly the phone recovery window popped up. The update did not finish though, it was about 70% done. PLEASE, PLEASE HELP!!! I just bought this phone today.

My Would be Husband is going to gift this mobile to me..
I dont know the performance of this phone, but i still believe my husband, as he will get a good phone, so lets wait and see..
I look good, I look smart.. I look beautiful is what i feel...
the phone is simply amazing. Screen resolution is perfect, wifi is functional, and the camera is surprisingly crisp, all in all a great phone with great functions.
guys! what is the difference between Wi-Fi 802.11b and Wi-Fi 802.11g? thanks!
N80 is a great phone! The resolution and the sound quality is very good. Although the battery life is really the problem for this phone. But all in all, this is a great phone.
on N80 and K810:
If you want to have a very nice camera phone and excellent music, you should go for K810. It's cybershot which is actually a good brand for digicams.
But if you are a very techie person, go for N80. It has wifi, an above average cam, nice music, and you can easily install various applications.
I used to own K800 (which is not really far from K810). But when I got hold of my N80, I was overwhelmed by its various functionalities, from the most basic phone functions to complicated pda capabilities. I was able to download an office application that allows me to edit and create word and excel documents.
This phone is really good!
in order to make ur n80 shutter sound active, u should go to menu & choose imaging.
then click on "camera", after that click the "option" butter.
then click on "setting" & choose the related item u want.
anybody knows how to connect to a hot spot using wi fi or a "step by step" guide?
please sent me an email,
