Summary: Did anyone else buy this phone from Hong Kong? Pretty phone but cannot send text messages (even though message center was changed) and cannot access yahoo emails! Even cheap phones do this. WE hav spent over 10 hours with TMobile tech support, Nokia tech support etc. Has anyone found a solution to this problem??
The smart phone that feels like a brick in your pocket
11 February 2010
Summary: The Nokia N80 was the flagship model about 3 years ago - they still seem to hold there value well, perhaps I should put mine on ebay! I chose this phone at a contract renewal - it replaced my Sony Erricson K600i. I was initially impressed with the vast array of features - 3mp camera, bluetooth, wi-fi, internet and email capabilities and a nifty user interface. It was a great novelty item!
Pros: Lots of features - wifi, built-in-camera, great user interface
Summary: when i first got my n80 i thought it was the best thing since sliced bread but that was not to last. soon after using the phone i found the battery life useless, i would have to take a charger to work just so i could use it. the wi-fi stopped working after 2 months, im not sure what the problem was hardware or software but anyway i found web browsing slow and annoying.
Pros: camera, s60, picture quality, easy to use
Cons: batery, wi-fi, signal, software problems, web browser

The software was quite slow and quirky, crashing on a regular basis. Battery life was incredibly ...
Excerpt: "...change and received my first Nokia -the nokia N80- in February this year. It was an online deal from 3 on a price plan with only two phones to choose from - the Motorola Razr V3x or the N80. I'd heard so much bad press about the V3x that I decided to give the N80 a try. My first impression of the N80 was that it was a whole lot bulkier than I had expected. I'm a woman with average sized hands and found it somewhat uncomfortable to hold and slide ...
Pros: Music player, good screen, takes nice daylight photos
