N8 Issues - listed!

Got my N8 about a week ago. So far i've had to reset it twice! These are the problems that have occured:

 

1. Cant add new shortcut on startdisplay. Get error message: "App was removed". Then some apps on all start screens dissapears and when i tried to put them back i got the same message and some more dissapeared. Called Nokia n8 support and they told me to reset the phone, which I did! Have'nt occured since.

 

2. Writing sms, keyboard stucks! Happened twice today, never seen it before. After writing a few letters i noticed the letters didn't come up on the screen. I could still "push" them but nothing happened. Had to restart since no buttons at all worked except the one changing from capital letters and back.

 

3. Ovi suite sais "change to Ovi suite on phone" even though it is allready in Ovi suite mode! Thus, I cant synchronize anything!

 

4. Starting Ovi store: Since this morning, everytime I start Ovi store it takes me to the "download ovi store client" website only to after one second redirect me to the real Ovi store. (bringing it up on full screen and starts loading Ovi store).,

 

5. Sometimes when i change from screen to screen, it wont load the app icons. Have to restart the phone to make this work again.

 

If anyone knows how to fix any of this please help me!

 

More to come! (hopefully not)!

Try resetting your phone to factory settings - you lose settings and anything in memory but it sorted out the problems on mine.

Choose settings, phone, phone management etc.

Think 1000 times before buying it, Nokia have not yet released any update for it.

That's got to be one of the least helpful posts I've seen on here in a while.  if you can't come up with something useful or productive, why bother posting such trash?

 

I would also suggest try to reset your settings, but don't perform the three-finger reset.  You'll likely end up suffering more for that at the moment.  If the factory reset doesn't work, try contacting your retailer for advice or even your local Nokia Care Point.

Problem is, I've all ready reseted it to factory settings twice. Getting tired of it! It has been working for 2 days now without any problems! Truly, after all complaints that we've seen, nokia has to be working with some software updates? It would be a shame otherwise!

Try reinstalling the firmware, see if that irons out any gremlins.

I'm sure they are. I love my new n8. The best nokia I've had in a long time. I also had to reset due to an issue with a free app I installed but now it's fine. Classy, sophisticated and for such an advanced device user friendly.
I'm a 56 yr old none tech savvy female - so the n8 isn't that bad.

View the message as a conversation and the message should be there as sending. Hit the trashcan bt the bottom to remote the thread and it'll be gone. Had to do it myself today when in London due to a network fault with o2.

Re: N8 Issues - listed!

I think Nokia should really get rid of their unremovable battery thinggy because this is Symbian not iOS. Most of the Ovi Suite unable to sync with your phone issue can be fix with removing the battery for 3 minutes and restart it. The computer will redetect the device thus reinstall the driver.

That's what the long power button press simulates. Hole it down for about 8 seconds until the phone vibrates and that indicates a power cycle, ie battery removal.

Re: N8 Issues - listed!

I have tried the battery removal by holding down the power button for 8 or so seconds and then leaving the phone turned off for about 6 minutes, before turning back on and I am still having the issue of it not syncing.
