    Unfortunately that's only going to directly affect the store.
    Fortunately (hopefully), that'll teach them about selling HMD stuff.

    No it wont, the phone would end up back at HMD who will have to reimburse the wholesale cost of the phone to the retailer, if the store paid £300 for it then they will still have made £200 out of me.

    The only person out of pocket would be HMD and if i am honest at the minute i couldn't give a toss about that.

    Hmm, I didn't know that that's how things roll in the retail chain, in that case I'll surely get rid of it, our law states that if they cannot get the item in proper condition within 15 (or 20, not sure) days they're forced to either refund the money or, if the customer agrees, to receive an item of at least equivalent parameters.
    Yeah, I'm sick of these horror games.

    in Turkey; if they can not solve the problem in 20 days, they must take the device and give money back or give you a new device

    Look at it this way, it isn't the stores fault the item has become faulty is it so why should they bare the cost of it? If the item is still in manufactures warranty then it will end up back with them.

  • Hardly any of the 3.1's have been updated to Pie and it's gone very quiet, I think Nokia have pulled all updates due to bugs.

    March is the worst month to update from HMD and since HMD plans to release more new phones, I don't expect it to improve.

    @jdan So I still haven't received any reply from HMD about 8.1 downgrade, it's been months now. You were saying, you're in contact with them. Care to share any contact/email? Thanks.

    If you have bookmarked the 'Nokia 8' section of this forum you might forget that another source for finding out which models have received the March update is https://community.phones.nokia.com/. Or just click at the top of this page on 'Home'.
    Under the discussions marked 'Announcements' you find the latest comments on all Nokia models. Great chance that somebody has started a discussion on the new March update of a specific model.
    The second model today:  Nokia 6.1

  • Nokia 8 to HMD seems to be same as Macbeth to an actor. What a shame.

    It's worth coming back late with bug fixes than in the hour alone with security enhancements

    @Roybsbu642 Sorry, but, you could be worked at HMD. The same words. "PLEASE WAIT".

    I can hear this no more. HMD had enough time to reapair it and rolls it out, so as the most of the others (Samsung and so on have it released for her flagships).
