Need Help:dead N80

UPDATE: I got my phone back today from CbCharlie(thanks alot man). and it is how it used to be. AWESOME JOB. Thanks man. Superior customer service and fast and great customer service.

TWO THUMBS UP.


--------------------------------------------------------
Hi all,

I just tried to flash my N80 with NSU and it went 90% and went failed on me.

NOW my phone is dead.. Blank screen, does NOT power on, and etc.

I've read you can save the DEAD N80 with Phoenix 2007 software.

IF anyone has this software that they could send to me.. I would greatly appreciate it.

PM me.

Thanks for all the help.

I do not know where you are located. I can tell you that I had the same problem and I found CbCharlie. Trust me, he will fix it. He is also a great guy, he is in NY though. If you can get it to him, he will fix it. He also returned mine with the updated software. He is a genius.

You should be hearing from him soon, he is very responsive. I think the fee is $25.00 but I included a few extra $ for return shipping. For me it was worth it as it was my first experience with a Symbian phone and I really wanted to learn this system.
I had bought the phone in New York but since it was an European model, Nokia USA would not touch it. My options would have been to wait till I go to Italy in September. I was too impatient.
If there is a Nokia service center in Atlanta and you have a USA code then they would do for free if still under warranty.

Trust me, if it can be fixed, Charlie will fix it. Let me know how it works out. I am getting a bluetooth adapter today, so hopefully I won't have to bother with this pop port again. This is a big problem for all Nokia phones using the pop port.

The guy is good. Nokia should be paying him for helping people due to their badly designed phones. If possible try to get a bluetooth adapter so you can do all the syncing etc. Try to avoid that pop port as much as possible.
Maybe we can exchange ideas and problems in the future. I am so happy for you.

sounds good man. I already had the Bluetooth adaptor on my phone prior to my phone messing up.. stupid me just decided to go with the USB cable thinking that it will be more reliable and faster. I'm NEVER EVER USING USB CABLE AGAIN....

If it was an Ebay I would have left A++++++++++++++ feedback. Charlie gave life to my phone and I'm never using that bloody cable to update firmware.

Thanks heaps man
