I bought the N80 (not the IE) on ebay 2 months ago to use with Cingular. The screen is so sharp that you can read the tiniest font. One complaint I have is the battery life - you'll need to charge it every day. And yes, it is a little slow with some functions. Turning it on takes a while. Last night I was updating a few contacts and selecting "Edit" took a few seconds to open the contact. I also have had it reboot itself a few (maybe 3) times, but I haven't done any Nokia updates, though I know Nokia has made one available, and maybe an update would fix that.

I also have used the WiFi to connect to the Internet at home. I didn't use it much, so I don't remember the speed, but Web pages rendered very very well (much better than my Cingular 8525). It was easier to set up the WiFi on the 8525 than the N80.

I went from the 6230 to the N80 and the N80 interface was a little more complex, but it didn't take long to get used to it. Bluetooth setup was easier than the 8525.

Overall, I love the phone. I planned to sell it when I upgraded to the 8525, but the 8525 gets on my nerves so I might sell the 8525 instead! Smile
