to nick and SE supporter
if you want to compare btw W800 and N90, pls don't do it here. Just say the opinion about N90 and thats about it. Even my fren who used to be nokia freak complaining about the size "its sooo HUUGGE" thats wat she said.
no hard feelings, just an opinion.
Wobuffet, I would like to hereby clarify your doubts over the network confusion which you are experiencing at the current moment.
Firstly, do check if your N90 is in dual mode. If it's in single mode either for UMTS or GSM selection, there won't be any signal detected at all if you experience blind spots respectively.
The reason why your phone has been displaying GPRS is most probably due to your home network not supporting UMTS in that specific location that you are in currently.
At the same time, many people really have the misconception that 3G is different from GPRS. I would like to say that 3G makes use of the present GPRS module, only that higher speeds are used.
As such, when connected to GPRS, you would see the standard "=" sign below the signal display.
Only when UMTS is detected, there would be an additional 3G display above that "=" sign.
Putting your phone in dual mode would mean that the phone would adapt to and from the two different detected signals.
Hope I've been of help to you.
In any case, do post your queries at my blog, www.kel88.blogspot as I check in there more frequently.
to saviour ,,, that web site u told us about is fake ,,,the have based and copied www.chumbo.com you can compare them and u will see for your self ..
that site www.your-mobile-..... is a site that probably just want credit card numbers its not a real site
To Saviour: I checked that website out and i clicked buy it now on the N90 where it asks for your credit card information.. I looked at the bottom of the page and there was no "SSL 128-bit"(secure website)Icon. So I believe this website is real but you may be risking something by transferring your personal information on a non-secure website.
There are phones with 3MP cameras on them, and they cost half as much. I don't get why this phone is so expensive.
As you can browse TV, can you please post me your settings for the wap portal. Even if you aren't Vodafone I could compare your settings to mine and find if there is an error
Thanks for your post.
Actually I don't know if the problem is with the network or with the phone.
I dialled Vodafone customer care and I said that I set the phone with the settings pre-installed by Nokia.Those ones are the same settings suggested by Vodafone website for the 6680 model as the software menu is practically the same.
The operator told me that the problem should be with their network, which doesn't recognise yet N90(as it is a new model) for the acces to 3G services.
After the experience of setting the e-mail on my previous phone I don't trust very much Vodafone operators (I called them about 30 times and only one of them had been able to help me...)
Which is your opinion about my problem?
Answer me, plzzzzzzzzzz, thanks!
You're making me confuse.. So bout the portal thingy. The problem lies on your network or the phone itself? Does it mean other networks will be in GPRS version too?
To SE Supporter,
W800 do not stand a chance in compare with N90.W800's video quality suck,it records in old 3gp mode instead of N90's mp4.It also need a video call stand to do video calls.W800's camera only has 4x instead of N90's 20x.And finaly,the most important,W800 is Not a smartphone. N90 has a symbian 8.1
I think you misunderstood the problem.
The phone is 3G, it works well with 3G network and performs also videocall very well.The problem is that the wap portal of the network, if browsed with this phone is in GPRS version (no tv and songs in the Vodafone homepage)
I'd like to know if I should wait, as Vodafone said me, for the network settings upload, or if it's only a problem with the settings of the phone.
Please, help me if you can, thanks.
N90 is really wonderful.
It has so many options that I think it is more similar to a PC than to a phone.
It took one day to get used to its menu.
Now I've set everything, only one thing is very strange: the wap portal is in gprs version and not umts one.(no music, no mobile tv).
Vodafone said it is a metter of their network, which hasn't still the settings for recognising N90 compatibility with those services.
Have you got other suggestions?
Please answer me. I have waited for the phone, I don't want to wait also for the network upload (and maybe the problem will be with the settings of the phone and not with the network).
Please answer me.
Thank you very much!
yes this is y w800 wins n90 not in price but in camera n weight n others.. w800 got torch while nokia phones dun have.. and n90 memory card i think for now max = 512mb.. while SE already got a 2gb to fight it..
I've just gotten hold of the new Nokia N90 in Singapore for SGD$1188 (approx USD$700), and I must say, the video quality is bloody brilliant. Really a far cry from N6630 and N6680's pixelated graphics. Look no further if you need a good video-camera-phone.
Still, it's a shame that photo images which are taken indoors with low lighting tend to turn out yellowish, making anyone's face in the photos look a tad pale and sickly... Lolz. Does anybody out there know how to eradicate or at least minimize the chances of this problem occurring?
Yes, the camera does do auto brightness and contrast. It's great!
Isn't the font size same as any other series 60? By the way I would like to know whether the camera does auto brightness or contrast just like the Nokia 6101, I got a 6630 & a 6101 but the 6101's picture seem to be a better quality in terms of clearity..
