Please read the product description carefully for all unlocked cell phones.

Some unlocked cell phones sold by Newegg may have previously been locked to a specific carrier. A carrier-locked cell phone may often have carrier-specific applications and branding. Some of these applications cannot be unlocked and/or may not function with a different carrier. Also, applications requiring a data plan may result in data usage charges from the original carrier.

In addition, the cell phone box may arrive unsealed and the cell phone may appear previously handled. The unlocking procedure requires unsealing the box and manually handling the cell phone. In this case, the cell phone should not be considered “tampered with” or “defective”.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good Product

Pros: I do not use internet over the phone. So for me this product was for its phone functions, camera, music player, calender, etc. All fine for the price I paid. Did not yet notice any failure on any of its functions, and hopefully it stay that way for a 3-4 years or so.

Cons: None i can think of

1 out of 5 eggslove the hardware, hate the software

Pros: 12 mp camera, loud speaker, nice looking, light weight, FM transmitter

Cons: slippery, not a lot of apps, buggy, nokia customer care is helpless, keeps rebooting and freezing, have it's mood when it comes to installing apps ( most of the time it takes up to a week of trying to install anything), no google apps, youtube videos are played in a weird way(unless using opera), really bad social networking apps ( no chat, dont get notifications, cant watch videos and no facebook games at all).

Other Thoughts: i've was really excited about this phone, i had owned in the past several nokia phones, starting from the 3310 till the n95 8gb, had a few other s60s before and loved them.
Nokia knows how to make amazing hardware but have no idea of what to do when it comes to OS. i have been waiting 2 months for the anna update but it never came (only in the US). It seems like the PR 1.2 is still on beta stage.

My advice to NOT buy this phone unless you are willing to suffer.

4 out of 5 eggsI love this phone!

Pros: 12mp camera, offline GPS navigation on many countries with free lifetime map updates

Cons: Currently when using the builtin browser, the desktop version of youtube does not work. I get a flash icon instead of the video. The workaround is to view the mobile version of youtube ( or download the youtube app. But still I would love to view the desktop version of youtube to work on the builtin browser.

Other Thoughts: Symbian is not for everybody. When I first got the phone I had to tinker it for a month before it suited my taste.

Pros: none...infact I had zero help with this defective phone from Nokia as well.

Cons: Defective and Newegg won't refund. Sent phone back after numerious updates/hard resets/soft resets/power downs...etc. Called Nokia for troubleshooting...they are no help at all.
Let me lightly say Neweggs escallations dept represented by a foul person named "Lan" is completely disapointing. She was so rude and refused to refund. 30 days past on cellular puchases with no budge. I TOOK 30 days to go through the defective process. AGrr... so irritated, newegg definatly lost this customer and I will tell 10 ppl.

2 out of 5 eggsBad reliability

Pros: Good specifications, camera, GPS, battery life

Cons: few applications; hardware stability.

It died suddenly one day, no dropping down, no water, nothing, simply died. Googled around, found that it's a common problem.

Other Thoughts: Nokia really needs to address the issue.

2 out of 5 eggsSymbian will be the Death of Nokia

Pros: - Form Factor
- Camera
- Good battery life

Cons: - Symbian ^3
- non user replaceable battery
- touch screen

Other Thoughts: Symbian ^3 is not only the death of this phone but will be the death of Nokia. If the N8 ran Android or do I dare say it...Windows mobile 7 this would have been a much better phone. I had to run SPB mobile shell to not have to throw this phone out. This phone is so sluggish and laggy that it makes this phone really unenjoyable.

The screen could be brighter and the touchscreen could be more accurate and more responsive.

I found the GPS to be buggy often taking a very long time to never finding my current position without wifi enabled (most likely a short coming of the dedicated GPS chip).

I also found Nokia to be slow in updates and patches which doesn't help matters much

I should have bought an Android phone like my gut told me to do

4 out of 5 eggsA perfect camera phone

Pros: - 12mp camera
- Free GPS
- Long battery life
- Easy sync with Outlook
- Easy data transfer with a PC
- Come with HDMI

Cons: - Very limited applications
- Poor UI (looking forward to Anna)
- Slow CPU
- Slow web browser

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a smartphone that can replace a stand alone camera and GPS. And the Nokia N8 serve that purpose quite well. Picture quality is the best of all smartphone. I have no problem leave my compact camera at home. However, it is still not as good as a better compact camera given its huge sensor. GPS is very fast and accurate with 3G connection. But routing is quite disappointed. Overall, it meets my needs quite well even though it is neither perfect on either performance.
