Sadly I still get the same message. Everytime I pick the profile it won't go to general and says insert SIM card.

Also, the SIM card should click into place and click out of the slot but it doesn't.

Thing is I have the phone in green from the Nokia shop on T-Mobile and I don't want to lose that.

Yep I've stopped using the mail client as it was hanging my 'pre-commercial' software N8
so i put it down to that - been using web based gmail instead. which is sadly a quite crude 'wap'compared to the android/iPhone gmail mobile web interface.

Still I just installed the awesome JoikuSpot and its shiny new interface....

LoubieLou, you can take the battery out but you'll need a torx driver


You could reset it tho... probably easiest from your PoV though to just return.

That is no good at all. My first N8 was a donkey but thank God they sent me a second as the second is working much better. I do miss being able to take the battery out though.

Did you ask for one or did they just send it?

I agree about doing a hard reset if possible.

Whoa whoa... don't go getting the screwdriver out just yet!!

All you have to do is hold the power key down for 7 seconds and it does an immediate reset, just like removing the battery. When it happens you'll get 3 buzzes out of the buzzer. You can then restart with the power key again.

[edit] it's done in HW so works no matter what state the SW has got itself into.

What really annoys me is that I can't write in a text box such as this via the browser on the N8. I find that incredibly annoying and when I do write stuff it won't show up on here! Makes me miss my N95, 6600 and N70!!

N8

Only had the N8 for 2-3 hours an just switch contacts to my N8 an the phone as now Frozen an just shows the Clock Screen Saver,an can"t switch the N8 off at all,you used to able to remove batteries on mobiles an switch it back on ,but the N8 as a non-removable battery,so now got to send the N8 back to get Repaired,thats the only disadvantage with the Design of the N8,an now might cancel the N8 off tesco mobile an get the C7 instead,as at least you can remove the battery on this mobile

No no no. I already said You don't need to take the back off the phone to reset it. It has a hardware reset which you trigger by holding the power button down for 7 seconds. It'll buzz 3 times when it's about to turn off.

If the screen lock is on, it might tell you to press the onscreen button to unlock it but just ignore it and keep holding the power button down until the buzzing starts.

It's done in hardware so there's no way you can fail to turn it off unless the hardware is broken somehow.

The captive battery really only has one disadvantage - you can't swap it for a pre-charged spare easily. The HW reset takes care of all the other cases when you might want to pull the battery.
