Can someone please tell me if its ok for me to upgrade my phone? I don't seem to know what the problem is. It recently just from time to time simply closes any application i'm working on and its really getting on my nerves. Otherwise its a great phone. Please tell me if upgrading is the solution.
nokia should update this phone.but not like n96 and n86.those are high-end models.a mid range n-gage that would be on par with 5730 but with slide out numpad,not qwerty.this phone has a good appeal when closed,with that military olive.those music buttons are in the way,along with the ugly button design in general.maybe something closer to 5730.i think im basically suggesting a 5730 with numpad slideout.
Please can any one assist me with an answer, my nokia n81 8gb corrupt an sis and sisx file i try to install on it but accepts jar files.I dont really know if the problem is from my phone.
I had it for a year it was perfect!Good battery, Wi-fi, a lot of music and everything a phone should have.
gayan3000, 05 Jul 2009i have updated the firmware to the latest (V 21.0.010) it gives good performance and stability... moreV21.0.010 is hackable, with HelloOX1.3 ,mine has been on V21.0.010 for 4months now,and hacked it a month after getting V21, you need a certificate to install HelloOX though.
i have updated the firmware to the latest (V 21.0.010) it gives good performance and stability to the phone and few improvements with increased security , hacking tools such as binpda etc wont work with it anymore , and the menus work smoothly with a new random transaction popup animations which is very cool . i think everyone should upgrade but dont even think about hacking ur phone after that which means you cant install pirated stuff and hacked stuff on it , i guess its all ok for me to tune up for the latest firmware :-)
I've been using Nokia n81 for about 1 year. It fell and got wet many times and it's still working like when i bought it. It's not very good filming or fotographing (only good if it's to send video messages)but ITS BEST CELLPHONE FOR GAMES. The two keys on top of the screen alow you to play games (emulators for example) like if you had a PSP or a Game boy. I play Super Mario Bros. all the time, fast and with the graffics from the Gameboy advanced
you want a camera with high megapixel? go buy a digi cam! period! -Melon

This mobile is not promising as I thought.
In less than one year. I took it to the warranty twice to fix problems including disconnection from the network and keypad does not work properly.
Now after the warranty period finished by less than one month. the keypad does not work at all.

People listen up! Why are you so concern about upgrading the firmwares? To get more out of your phone? If your cell phone is working properly and nothing wrong with it, LEAVE IT ALONE! Half of the time if not most, UPGRADING IS NOT FOR THE BETTER. Remember, once you have upgraded, and problems start to surface, you are not able to restore the old one. So please people stop crying if your cell phone start acting up after upgrading. Also people please, when you post, do not make like you are texting here, use proper and the whole word. GSM Arena gives you unlimited space to post you opinions here. Thank you.
yup dats true....the colour of the phone fades very fast..but not only in N-81..also in d latest N-series phones...other than dat der r no problems wid N-81 8GB... and for the difference...N-81 has 2 MP camera while N-85 has 5 MP camera....
