FAQs

When will the phone be available and how much will it cost?
The phone is scheduled for the first quarter of 2006. The likely shipping date is late March / early April 2006, but it may be into late April before the phone become available in significant volumnes, and may take further time to be available via your operator. The unsubsidised cost of the phone is €500 Euros ($590 USD, £350 GBP). It is expected to be widely available in the EMEA market.

The FCC have approved a Cingular branded single band WCDMA 1900 version. However it is reported that Cingular are now unlikely to carry this phone initially. It seems likely it will follow a similar pattern to the N70 and N90 for the US market (only widely available some months after the European release).

Will it run Skype?
No official anouncements have been made, but Skype is coming to Symbian and it is likely that this phone will be one of the first to get a working Skype client.

What about other VOIP?
Yes it is likely it will run other VOIP software. Nokia are using the N80 in their UMA trials for example.

Where can I see the official specifications?
You can find them on the Nseries site.

PHONE SETTINGS

Firmware Version *#0000#
Serial No (IMEI) *#06#

Phone Reset - In both case, the phone will ask you a confirmation and you will have to enter a security code (12345 by default)
Files and applications stored on E: drive are not be affected by these sequences.

Normal Reset *#7780# : Restores ini files from rom but preserves user data (photos, 3rd party apps etc) to factory settings

Deep Reset *#7370# : This reformats completely the C: drive. All applications and files stored on this drive will be lost and clean default files will be rewritten.

For Symbian OS 7 and higher there is a third method: Turn phone off, press and hold the green (talk) key on the left + number 3 on the keypad + the * key and then turn the phone back on. The phone will start the formatting process without confirmation! Files and applications stored on E: drive are not be affected by this.

Bluetooth device address *#2820#
Delivery report on O2 - You have to enter *0# at the beginning of your text to receive a delivery report (remember to turn off the setting on the phone first)
