808 Belle FP2 Email New Arrival Widget acting up.

I recently wiped my 808.

 

I noticed that now the homescreen email new arrival notification widget will randomly notify me there is a new email arrived even if there is no new email.  I take a look and it goes away. Minutes later same thing can randomly happen. Not all the time but it does happen

 

Fresh clean install with standard gmail setup with low frequency of emails received in the day.

Re: 808 Belle FP2 Email New Arrival Widget acting up.

hi mate,

AFAIK not much can be done about this. Symbian was left in a state where it couldn't even use the notification lights on certain devices to let users know of impending emails, and the same happens with the email sync. As Symbian is now in maintenance mode, the likelihood of futher firmware updates (bar the 808), is extremely slim.

Re: 808 Belle FP2 Email New Arrival Widget acting up.

I bought the 808 less than a year ago as a premium device. I expect the shiitty focus problem, text notification tardness and this acting up email notification widget fixed. I don't give a **bleep** what the company is going through. If they want to sell a premium a $600 device they have the obligation to support it too regarldess of where it sits in their roadmap.

Re: 808 Belle FP2 Email New Arrival Widget acting up.

i empathise with your frustrations, but as this is primarily a user to user forum only, your best bet is to leave feedback directly with Nokia via clicking the Nokia Support link at the bottom of this page.

Re: 808 Belle FP2 Email New Arrival Widget acting up.

This forum is for users to convey problems they are having with Nokia products. This creates awareness and visibility of the issues that exist for other customers and potential customers.

 

If Nokia wants to ignore the activity on their forums that is their business choice.

 

But when someone is interested in purchasing a Nokia product they will be better informed as to the choice they are about to make.

Re: 808 Belle FP2 Email New Arrival Widget acting up.

ps. If you look at the support links there are only really 3 options.

 

1. Software updates/Downloads   (Nothing exists to update or download to fix the problems)

 

2. Forum discussion (which apparently is not the right place to discuss problems)

 

3. Repairs and a FAQ (which offer no answers to new questions  and only helps if your phone is bricked/defective)

 

 

So tell me where is the correct place and method to discuss and correct bugs in their product?

Re: 808 Belle FP2 Email New Arrival Widget acting up.

don't u have a Contact Us section and when you click on that, it says that you can Phone Us? if not, then Google or check your local telephone directory for Nokia's phone number in your country.

There is honestly nothing more we can do for you here mate.
