Since my upgrade in middle May '10, my phone went back 3 times to date!!! Main reason is that it came supplied with firmware and maps that are not compatible with life-long GPS support. Web-site downloads are not possible since the handset's product code does not allow for downloads/upgrades until it was sent to NOKIA service centre. How they managed despite the product code, I do not know. NOKIA blames the service provider and vice-versa and I, the customer, is slap-bang in the middle.
Now, even after their firmware upgrade, the latest maps were STILL unavailable and GPS connection was only possible by connection to the internet (at huge expense)and not by inegrated GPS, also with no stereo radio and VERY difficult RDS reception if at all!!!! An INTERNAL ERROR (I suppose the hanset)and talking to at least 7 advisors at NOKIA Care Centre, I was advised by the last person to send it back AGAIN. 3 times in 2 months when every time I loose about 2-3 weeks return time!
Worst handset I have had by far in my 15 years of cell phone experience.

I had n86 white as almost the same time with Dr. Bidhan. The color did not fade, nor it turned yellow. Its perfect as it is and what i have to keep it safe is a cloth pouch and that's it. Not a scratch, keypad and slide is in perfect condition... All is still great...

does this phone has a air update
How many serial n... moreyes it does come with built in dictionary, over the air update. It comes with 1 ngage serial, but with latest fw ngage is removed from n86 as nokia no longer supports it.
Despite of numerous positives LIKE SUPERB BUILD QUALITY, some common negatives are: loudspeaker is tinny, some(and not all) have slider wobbling problem and some software bugs (whose correction is upon nokias grace).
Rest everything is perfect.

Sunil , 19 Jul 2010Hi I am planning to one here in Delhi, India. However, I visited 4-5 Nokia stores to purchase ... moreAt this moment i am deciding whether to buy another one for 2 reasons
1) This seems to be the last product of its kind so buying another one will make me have a spare if my n86 breaks..
2)I really want the white model and i can get one sim free brand new from nokia store/shop online for 299GBP..
So thats one answer to your question it depends where you are cause i am in uk and we have online second hand shops that are good value and 12 month gaurantee..
Hi I am planning to one here in Delhi, India. However, I visited 4-5 Nokia stores to purchase it... but they also say that Nokia has discontinued this product. Does this product have any manufacturing defects. If no, is there still a way I can get a new one?
Hey, its really nice phone, worth buying.. but only thing is, the buttons are not comfortable in the front.. the num keypad is quite good.. :-)
