Re: N8 freeze all the time after using it for some hours !!!!

Hello djd22,

 

thank you for using the forum.

 

Did you try to update your phone with Nokia Belle to fix your problem?

You can try it with this link for support.

 

We hope it will help.

PS : if you choose to update your phone to Nokia Belle, you won't be able to downgrade to Anna.

Re: N8 freeze all the time after using it for some hours !!!!

Hello,

 

had some problems AFTER I UPDATED to mVPN45.0.3 on my C7 and N8.

 

If you use mVPN 45.0.3 please try to delete and install mVPN44.1.3 this works fine on my handsets.

 

hope it helps.

 

bye

Re: N8 freeze all the time after using it for some hours !!!!

Hi Jean-Denis,

Try removing the SIM and the memory card, then test in offline mode for some hours.

Next insert only the SIM and test for some hours.

Next insert only the memory card and test for some hours.

Only if it fails without SIM and memory card, then it is probably a phone hardware failure.

Replace SIM or memory card if it fails when either one is inserted.

 

This is what I would do, if or when my N8 becomes unstable.

hi Hans,

 

thanks for the reply if you see in my first post you will see that have already done the offline test and dont use memory card  I think also its the hardware which is faulty...have tried to re-install Bell again today. just after the new installation phone was perfect and after 1 hr it freezes again...

before thinking to through it away was trying to see if there is another solution...
