@koko Yes you can install msn and skype on the phone. In fact i installed it myself. There are alot of applications for this phone. All you need is to look for symbian os s60 3rd edition applications. They've been out for months since the n81 as well as the n95-3 is a s60 3rd edition too. Download and install via pc suite that is offered with the phone.

and it should say the device software. Mine is v.10.0.046 i tried updating it but nokia says they haven't released any updates yet. Don't be expecting any soon until the n82 black comes out. Might be a n82-2.
I just got the n82 last week. Awesome phone. But battery tends to die out pretty quickly if you're using wifi and gps alot. Recommend you getting a second battery.
Battery life usage (10hour span):
-woke up using the alarm (5mins)
-went to school listening to music (1 hour)
-surfed on wifi during class (3hours)
-(listened more music after class while waiting for the bus to a hockey game (2hours)
-called my friend to see if he would come (30mins)
-recorded (20 min video of the first period)
-took 10 pictures with xenon flash on
-called my friends about the game (1hour)
-listening to music dozed off on the bus and got lost (1 hour)
-used gps to find my way home because buses stop running after midnight(30mins)
-still listening to music and then battery died (30 mins later)
Not bad battery life. Although a 1200mah battery would make things alot better.
Also i found out that if you left bluetooth and wifi on for 4hours straight your battery would run out too. Good phone overall. Not quite liking the style but its a good phone. I was going to wait for the black n82 but they delayed that till april. So might as well wait for the n82-3 =).
What is the latest version of this phone and where can I check that on this mobile? please advise me with detail instructions if anyone knows. Thanks
greedings to you guys! I will get this phone tommorow so I'll need some help. can I install Skype, or MSN or is there an upgrade(some new features) available? please write.
i want to know why the n82 keypad does not light when the phone rings. very difficult to pickup a call at night. if you know the setting pls mail me.
Nokia n82 is powerful mobile phone. I am using about one week, very good performance and gps good too, camera and music also very good quality .my phone version is v11.0.117 some time when I input the earphone jack its take restart , I thing next update will solve the problem . Overall this is a very good handset. Thanks.
i just bought from ebay...i love this phone>>>best phone in market NOW...http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MESEX:IT&item=220201866162&_trksid=p3984.cSELL.m315.lVI
in my opinion n82 is way better. it has the same features as the n95 and besides it has a xenon flash, twice as RAM memory which makes it faster and ngage gaming. besides its cheaper. i definitely believe n82 is the way to go. i just bought mine 2 weeks ago! i can honestly tell you it's the best phone i've ever had and it's probably the best phone on the market right now.
hey, n82 in pangasinan is much cheaper. its cost 19,750.00 at the nokia center.
thank you guys..i'll definitely buy n82 tomorrow....I'm from the Philippines...Anyways,it's around 20,300 pesos(5th Avenue),20,500 pesos(Adi Telecom)22,400 pesos(Mega Exchange) right now in Cyberzone 4th floor SM Megamall..or even cheaper in Greehills....oh..I just saw yesterday SE W960i..omg it's 24,500 pesos in Adi Telecom(also in Cyberzone SM Megamall),more expensive than n82...maybe it's has just been released...
Mmmm... the Black N82 is so sleek.. Looks much better than the pearl white one.. Anyway, its hard to say what or which phone is the best as each has different functions and looks.. Anyway, this phone is definitely in my shopping list.. =)
For me my N82 is by far a better device than any other one on the market right now, even better than the new N96 and the Crappy XPERIA X1 of SE with no xenon flash and only 64K screen color...
N82 is the phone of the year!!!
Is N82'S keypad good to press ? it seems like small...i worry if its hard to press...can anyone tell me ?!?!?!?!
hello?? samsung G810 is nowhere near to be looked like NOKIA. even on paper you can see the build quality G810, unlike...you know what..
I think the only reason people think the g810 is better is because it looks like a nokia!!!!! Nokia will always win in my books and this phone is rather smart in my opinion
