How to reformat Nokia N8

Hi,

 

My Nokia N8 was purchased 7 days ago. I love the phone.

 

Do have a few issues.

 

Sometimes applications will freeze when I try to open them up. Basically, I tap on the application icon and nothing will happen. I do a reboot and the application will open up.

 

Another thing is that sometimes when I view photos/images the image will be displayed upside down. The image will be displayed the correct way but 2 sec later on it will be upside down. Does not happen with all images (no, I do not hold the camera upside down).

 

Even the opera browser had issues, when holding the phone in a vertical position it would display the screen in a horizontal position.

 

I have a feeling that it might be software related and a reformat would sort it out.

 

What would the best way to go about this?

 

Any potential issues that has to be adressed before I reformat?

Nightmare about Nokia N8

G'day mate. If I were you, it won't make much difference. I come to realise after meeting up with other N8 users that it is happening to them too. Over the weekend I went to a few specialist shops and found out that of all the phones, HTC has the lowest complaints. I have resisted buying other brands aside from Sony Erricsson, Nokia and Siemens. After sitting down for hours amd toying with HTC Wildfire, Desire and Legend, I soon realised that these are vastly superior.

 

But don't take my word, go and try it and open many applications and watch videos at same time. I could not crash any of the HTC.

 

 

 

With respect to Nokia, I hope to see you people making sweeping changes and keep up with the times.
