Summary: The bad: The C drive (phone memory) on this phone is too small. Just downloading the recommended software updates, it filled up in less than a year.... and now the phone no longer functions. In order to make more room for memory hungry updates it then asks you to delete contacts or your personal messages etc etc.. I think the only way to fix it is to do a factory reset.
Summary: I purchased this phone as I needed an unlocked phone to take overseas, since, of course, ATT won't unlock an phone for use while traveling. I received this phone, upgraded it to Belle, seemed to have everything running and then got ready for my trip. The thing that no one will tell you about this phone is that it actually operates off of a C:\ drive, which only has 256mb of storage. Even basic MS Exchange email usage will eat up that memory and render the phone useless.
Summary: this phone does not send text messages with AT@T, NOKIA does not have a fix, their "fix" is temporary. BUT if you want great pictures, awesome video, and super clear calling feature, i would have given it a 5 star!!. but i do need to text and that was the deal breaker..
Summary: This phone is great i have nothing bad to say about this phone but the customer service lacks in every category that makes this phone a 1 star. First of all NokiaUSA is just a bunch of idiots they do not fix nothing, they will return your broken phone to you even if is still under warranty and they do not care that you spent 400$ for a cell. Compared to Apple customer service is like night and day Apple will swap any phone or ipad broken screen or not.
My experience with Nokia - Consider reading before you buy.

Summary: You've probably read enough about the phones features here or in other reviews, I won't be discussing these too much since it seems rather redundant. I'd rather share my current experience since I've had the phone. * This phone or the more recent production batches of them seem to have a display issue in which the screens black levels look purple (magenta). This coloration doesn't seem to affect 100% blacks or at least is impossible for the eye to tell.
Summary: "worst phone ever i used till date ... other than the camera and hdmi .. its a peice of shit ...dead slow .. touch really sucks .. many times hanged up and i had to unscrew and remove the battery to reset .. afte this i used android and felt far better than n8 i strongly recommend only if you use camera much prefer this .. other than that it really not worth .... i got irritated so many times using this phone ..
Summary: So I constantly buy products from Amazon. I happened to buy several units of the Nokia N8. Turns out that some units work perfectly, no problems at all. But some others, well, they hang up, lag... etc. Some even arrived DEAD. Wont even turn on. If you receive a dead phone, is better to send it back right away, don't do what I did and make a hard reset. I discovered that a hard reset would bring back to live to one of my DEAD N8. But the joy didn't last.
