    I found the above on another website, as i've not got it working using wireless, as i only have a wifi enabled laptop. However when you first open the browser if you push the left shoulder button to bring up the options menu, then navigate to settings you should see access point as the first option. if you set that to always ask it should ask you what connection you want to use when browsing, then if you've defined you network as a wlan connection you should be able to see it and use it to browse the internet.

    Lucky for me my housemate is a comp science guy - specialising in networks an that so he had no problems setting it up on our wireless lan at uni :D
    Can now login to my uni network from my bed - no need to even turn on the pc :p ... along with any other website i may choose :cool:
    Amazingly simple once it's all setup !

    Vodafone haven't really branded it. There's no Vodafone logo on the outside of the phone and the only thing they've changed is that they've put a Vodafone live icon as the right soft-key, and even that can be changed in the prefrences.

    Anyone have an idea as to whether a programme could make the flash turn on permanently - much like the k750i leds can be used as a torch (my mate does :p) ?
    As i can't find any way of turning it on other than using it as a flash - it seems quite a darn powerful light too !

    I wanted to upgrade my K750i to one of these. Until I walked into Phones4U yesterday just to see what they looked like in the flesh. I won't be buying one now that's for sure! They look like a house brick, and the flip up section just looks tacked on at the last minute. Shocking Nokia, shocking.

    Not that i could find, you do realise there isnt much if anything out there for the N80 software wise, another reason why i dumped it in favour of the W810i.
    It will take the software developers a bit of time before anything decent turns up on the n80, seeing as its newest edition of the series60 operating system.

    On other websites ive seen a good number of games already available.

    They seem to be coming out at a very healthy rate. The pics look great too

    i was due an upgrade on voda 3 months ago but i was waiting for the n80, so i asked them on saturday how much to upgrade and they said £350!!! :confused:

    my bill is between £40 and £90 per month, but i guess they dont want my business anymore.

    they say, if i get a new contract which is exactly the same (but new number) then i could have the phone for free. :/ madness.

    So your 2gig miniSD works fine ? it would seem that good quality is needed :p
    I'm happy with the 1gig card in there for now though - will wait for prices to lower on the better quality cards *or* for a firmware update which might allow my card to function properly :)

    Oranges firmware is enough to put me off getting an N80 from them!
