The n95 8gb is actually 400.00 right now on a 3 year vision plan with rogers. You have to pay for the extra stuff vision gives you!
Just to clear up the GPS questions.
NO. You don't need a subscription, or even a sim card!
GPS is just a stand alone receiver unit built into the phone.
Paying a subscription would be the same as paying to listen to your FM radio!
The signals are sent from the orbiting satellites (you need to receive at least 3 for a good position fix), and the time it takes for the signal to reach your receiver is calculated for each signal received.
So in summary - no subscription needed - no internet needed - not even a sim card is needed for GPS use (SIM needed for A-GPS).
This is the primary reason that I've bought the phone (updating from N73, N82 screen too small).
BTW - price is $580 USD in Cambodia from the official Nokia showroom in Phnom Penh.
What's the best way to clear water damage from it?
I believe it's under the slider - doesn't effect it greatly, but it does stuff up the screen at times.
No, no I don't speak English and clearly I don't understand it
You actually READ manuals? I didn't think anyone did... Which is why no one knows how to use a phone they pay so much for. I would think that maybe that is the reason your battery lasts so long if you did indeed read the manual and followed instructions, perhaps a poll would furthur confirm this.
However I don't think anyone else has ever bothered to read manuals and least of all follow instructions.
yah right? do you speak nor understand english? i said im lucky because my battery lasts that long..
its like buying a new car, not everyone can attain its topspeed in same model/engine, it depends on how they "break it in".. when i bought my phone i charge it the way it use to as the manual said..
now, im enjoying my phone for how many days without worries about the battery life..
hope you get the point..
i bet the people who bought the 8gb long time ago are happy realizing that others can buy its at rogers for like 250-300 with contract. let the price slope begin.
i have had this phone for 6 months now and i hav had now prolems at all
it is absolutely brilliant
i dont care what people say about the sat nav built into this phone, its a good sat nav
went for a drive today, weather was very cloudy and raining heavily but the sat nav was working fine
the features are amazing
camera quality is great
mp3 player on this phone is the best in terms of sound quality it allows you to use any headfones in the 3.5mm jack
abit chunky but the black and silver just looks sexy
all my mates love my phone and think its great
I planin o n getting this phone but i just dont know one thing does it reach the maps anywhere or u have to be at a router range???
Simply best phone today! But a se k530 user said that his one is super-hit w/ illogical comparison. Really drive me mad!!!!
Seems to be getting worse and worse; perhaps I bought a dud.
Was a fantastic phone for me for about the first 3 months, thats when the problems started to occur.
First the secondary camera stopped working. No biggy, I never use 3g and the primary camera is my camera of choice.
Next, the hand-set mode of speaking on the phone ceases to work. Not too much of a hassle, although constantly using loud-speaker proves a hassle when I want privacy.
And just recently, the screen has been starting to screw up. Every time I "close" the phone, or switch the viewing perspective, the screen shuts off and re-opens. It works, eventually, but it's a real pain.
Probably won't be buying another Nokia any time soon.
N95 is not just a phone. It is more than a phone. Because it is already a computer. Besides those powerful hardware features like 5MP camera, 128MB RAM, 8GB memory, dual processor, 3D graphics accelerator, accelerometer, GSM/GPRS/EDGE/HSDPA chips, WLAN, Bluetooth, 3.5mm audio/video out, it's even got the most powerful mobile software, S60, running on Symbian OS that makes the whole difference and sets it apart from many other phones including the SE's. This S60 software on Symbian OS extends the capabilities of the N95, just like a real PC!
I'm an owner of a cellphone store. I compared all the phones from iphones to windows mobile phones. They all served different purpose. But I want you guys to admit this. This phone raises the bar.. "Feature-wise" this is the best phone right now. I know you want new interface because you're used nokia but admit it guys. This is the phone right now. But you know what I sold mine,.
In most dedicated camcorders/cameras they have screens of 120,000 pixels or more.The qvga of 80% of most mobiles is 76800 pixels and thats why photos look better and crisper on the lcd screens of dedicated devices but why??,,i looked up specs of my dads cannon camcorder because the lifelikeness of photos at only 0.8 megapixel and wondered WHY? but the specs said 2 inch screen, 12 bit polysilicon 120,000 pixel lcd display so even the colours are only 4096 colour?? So it must be the pixel count,,we want more denser screens please not more colours...
ehhhH !! it iz da best yet :p

Tho the K850 still takes video in crappy QVGA resolution! SE need to learn.
The N95 8gig is a fantastic device so stop your fanboy ranting and deal with it!!
guys let me put the arguement to an end.
k850i is better than n95 - and yes were not supposed to compare both because theyre made for different purposes. But let me tell you why k850i is better than n95.
k850i at least does one feature in superior than any other phone - the camera
the n95? even the 8gb? it tries to accomodate everything but each feature available in it were no superior at all.
camera? obviously not.crap stability, flash
8gb memory - duh expandable for others
size - as big as my old grannys wallet
battery life. sssshhhiiiiiiiiittttt
build quality. cheap nokia plastic
OS. symbian my ass
k850i is technically considered as camera as its bearing the cybershot logo and thats what the handset is intended to be and people recognise that.
whereas N95? ok N95 8GB? called a computer?????? are you kidding me? computer? WTFFFFF.... whats the basis? symbian?? wifi???
you can download call recorder for recording calls, look into www.nokiasoftwares.net
Sorry 'Pepsi' but I also think the battery on this is good. Mine usually lasts a little over a week, 2 days more than my k800. I use it regularly and altough I do not pertinaciously attempt to wear down the battery, I am a frequent user of the internet, camera and music facilities embeded in what I believe to be a terrific mobile.
