hey guys my lumia 800 was wrkin fine for 2 weeks but dono wat suddenly the data connection has lost i can connect to wifi but cant access net plzzz help
I don't know how this OS can be "far better than Android or iOS" when it has so many restrictions!!
I'm offended that you suggest I didn't do my research before buying the phone!! Nokia's own web site specifications for the Lumia 710 state that it is equipped with Bluetooth Stereo Audio & Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR. It doesn't mention anything about a RESTRICTED version of bluetooth due to OS! If you ask me, that equates to misleading advertising!!
My girlfriend just got new phone... Lumia 800 with "the latest" all solving version 1600.2487.8107.12072
In general it is good phone but, besides already mentioned problems there are few that are really annoying:
1. Incoming call ring phone still first second or two rings at full volume (30/30) then changes to set volume.
2. There is no possibility to swish everything off on incoming calls. It is possible to switch off sound, but You can not switch off vibration.
3. Different sound profiles on "oldschool" Nokias were quite useful such as Silent mode, Meeting, Outside, Vibro only. - is it so difficult to get it back in windows?
4. Why a heck phone offers Phonebook, Event, Calendar etc. info getting from old phone and does it via Bluetooth, if Bluetooth is valid only for audio devices??? If there is data transfer program/tool/widget - why it offers NOT WORKING connection way?
And some ideas - isn't it bad idea to give a possibility to change colors for different usage squares - now - one color for all... A bit annoying.
Just got the 710 as I was looking for a basic phone and it was pretty well they only phone I could get without needing to get a data plan. All I want is to be able to talk and send the occasional text message.
Problem: Everyone says it sounds TINNY like you are in a tin can or bathroom while talking to them.
Is anyone else getting this? Did I jsut get a **bleep** phone? Not very happy and feeling rather stuck since I had to go into a contract and well here in Canada we are quite limited in providers etc and now I am stuck with a phone people cannot hear me on. is there anything that can be done for this?

In countries with frequent power disruption , we prefer to switch off the mobiles in night to save the battery for next day .Hence the phone should not automatically switch on during charging. In fact this also the very reason why the alarm should function even if mobiles are switched off to conserve power overnight.
sadly these limitations will make people choose other manufacturers like i phone ect instead of Nokia this is not great advertisement,the whole reason Nokia joined up with microsoft was to become stronger and more competative in this ever changing market
I have the same problem. My phone company discovered that #123# (Check Balance) could not be used on the Lumia 710 because of the Windows operating system. Microsoft has no intention of fixing the problem either.
I took a nokia lumia 710 (OS mango 7.5)recently..but as i started palying with it i thought 15K k was not at all worth for it...considering the global market and specially a country like india where people desperately want gud features in a phone worth 15k....this model is a flop in every aspect....here are most common features that the lumia 710 doesnt have(seriosly needed for a common man)
1.Messages cannot be stored and old ones cannot be searched
2.Blueetooth(the application part not the hardware) which is one of the most common means to transfer files these days is missin
3.Saving mp3 as ringtonges(not with zune)
4.contacts to be stored in phone and sim
May b i have miss sum but these are the basic ones which this phone seriosly needs an update of ....without these nokia phones(especially with the windows OS). has no ways to rise in the market.
So plz guys make sure that the next update of this OS has all atleast these basic features ...nokia is known for its perfection and reliability...so plz dont let people down.....
Even I am facing same issues. not able to dial any service numbers like *111#...
any update on this?
This lumia 710 is a bloody F%&$#@ phone. i will never buy nokia again
Why its showing i cant update software if phone is bought before june/ july.
Request to all friends. dont even think of this phone its a real S%&#@ from nokia to fool us.
strange enough that it is so restrictive but please explain why even Nokia phones (mine is C7-00) are not supported??? What phones are supported?
Nokia was always reliable and easy going but now it lost his few good old values! why Samsung, Sony, HTC etc. can do the simple things and Nokia make things complicated! Don`t tell me I`ve to read all little notes when I switch from Nokia to Nokia!
struggling to transfer my contacts via Bluetooth or any functional and not fancy software (Zune) I brought all my 1103 contacts to the new lve.com account and transferred to Lumia 800... What a dilemma!!! Many contacts were just empty or numbers just missing!!! I went to every single contacts (4 days long!!!) to dedicate "phone numbers" to "Mobile"," Home", "Work" etc... done that, still many numbers missing! Checked again and Lumia is supporting just one mobile numbers!!! What the hell is that?? You can have to FAX numbers (who is still using 2 faxes???) but only one mobile number... I went through the indicated contacts (386) and assigned the 2nd number to either home or work! And by the way, I found just 17 fax numbers in my 1103 contacts!!
Nokia must come with user friendly software and get rid of all this hanky panky stuff if they want to avoid their end!
I give you another 6 month to solve these things and if not I throw this thing and switch to Samsung top S3 which I can get for free. This would be a switch after being 15 years loyal with Nokia!
Please give an update what we can expect in the near future (2 -6 month) to change this Windows thing to a Nokia phone!
