Nokia N8 Firmware Bug(Sensor Setting)

Whenever I filp over my N8 on an incoming call it goes into silent mode even though the sensor setting is set to off.

I forced my friend to buy a N8 and this problem was also found in his N8 Grey.

 

Are nokia developers aware of this?

Mine does exactly the same thing (and I think everyone else's) on firmware PR1.2.

 

I am quite afraid I can lose incoming calls now.

NOKIA should definitely address this issue.

Re: Nokia N8 Firmware Bug(Sensor Setting)

I wonder why Nokia is still not aware of this issue and why not addressing the problem?

 

I'm expecting a device update for this otherwise I'm gonna have to sell off my N8. :smileysad:

 

I'm a biker and bcoz of this issue I cannot recognize an incoming call. :smileysad:

It happened to me again,:smileymad: but I managed to make it work again. It seems when you restart the phone this option stops working properly. So what I did to make it work again is:

1. I ticked the silence calls box, then

2. I restarted the phone,

3. With the ticked box tried calling to see if it worked – it did what it was supposed to do (it silences the calls when I turn the phone over), and

4. Then I un-ticked the box and it started to work properly i.e. it does not silence the calls.

From trial and error, I noticed that step 3 is important!

Good luck.
