Unlocked N80 for U.S.

How can I purchase an unlocked N80 US version? I don't want the European version. I'm on Cingular's network and afraid that if I get the Euro version, it won't work properly and have bugs....

Thanks,

Difference between US and EURO version??

Hey, what is the difference between the US version and the Euro version OTHER than one is CDMA2100 and the other is 1900? is there software differences or something that would make me need to have the US version other than the EURO one? One huge thing for me is that the Nokia reps are stating that the US version is only going to have the bluetooth ver. 1.2 and the Euro version has 2.0 bluetooth?? If you look on cellularconcepts it is 2.0! What do i do or need or want more??

Looks like there is no umts 1900

Just noticed that the N80 is now available from the Nokia website, but they removed everything about it having umts 1900 and only have the one with 2100 on it. This really sucks, I wanted this phone really bad with umts 1900.

Finally bought the N80 with WCDMA 2100 - waiting for delivery

Well guys I've given up on playing the waiting game for Nokia to release the UMTS 1900 version. I figured 3G won't be available from Cingular until September here in the Kansas City, MO area anyway. Here is the plan I've got in mind. If and when the U.S. N80 phone is released, I'll just sell mine on Ebay. Granted, I'll be competing with WCDMA 1900 phones, but if I sell to Europeans they'd want the 2100 version anyway. I figure I'll be able to get a discounted N80 phone from Cingular since I'm not asking for my discount phone now. So in theory, I'm hoping the sale on Ebay and the cost of a subsidized phone from Cingular will come out to be a wash. Of course, I'm sure I'll loose a couple hundred selling it used if the N80 comes out in a...

N80 1900 WCDMA

Is the N80 1900 WCDMA version for the US market available for sale now? Has anyone been able to purchase the WCDMA 1900? I do not trust the claims by some online retailers.

Thanks

U.S. Version Status

Before 5,000 people ask... Wink

The latest and most reliable info I have is that Cingular is reconsidering whether to carry the N80.

Certainly the N80 was on Cingular's roadmap, and of course versions have been spotted with a Cingular logo. BUT... Cingular wants their 3G phones to have WCDMA 850, and it's not clear if Nokia is able to easily add WCDMA 850 using their current chipsets.

Cingular has told me flat-out that the 6282 is the only 3G phone they will ever carry without WCDMA 850, which would exclude the N80, unless Nokia can add WCDMA 850 to it.

At the Nseries event last week in Berlin, I overheard a Nokia U.S. person saying that Cingular was still figuring out whether to carry the N80.

Either way, I do expect Nokia...

Battery Question

I have read so many negative comments about the battery life of the Nokia N80. Is that something Nokia could easily correct with a different battery? Or is it not that simple? Also, I have only seen this phone on-line, has anyone held it? At over an inch thick, it seems awkwardly fat.

Just want to know what difference does it make if Cingular accepts or passes on this phone? If you want it, why not buy it unlocked and drop the SIM in?

Allow sim card to send message?

I just received my unlocked N80 and inserted my Cingular SIM card. I keep receiving a message "Allow SIM card to send message". I have allowed it to send a message twice and it is asking me again. Will this stop? Should I continue to allow the message to be sent. I know I am paranoid but this is my first unlocked phone and I am afraid they are gathering info on the phone and will disable it.

Any info will be appreciated. Look forward to giving my opion on the phone once I get to play with it more.
