  • Hello Folks. I'm not sure if this is the correct way of posting on the Nokia forums?
    I  received a Nokia 8 a few days ago. I am having issues with a jumping screen. It was doing this before all the updates were installed.
    It will jump from one screen to another without touching the phone. I have done a few factory resets but it has'nt helped.
    On youtube there was one reset that required the phone to be powered off then holding the volume up button while installing the usb. When I tried this version ,I cant power off the phone to begin with.
    Does anyone have any ideas or is the phone faulty and needs to be returned?
  • Anybody around here inform me as to when my UK spec Nokia 8 is going to receive the android pie update? This really is dragging out a bit and is getting embarrassing.
  • How to earn points? What is benefit of points?
  • Nokia 7 plus taking too long to charge upto three and a half hour. The retailers say it takes maximum one and a half hour.

    I especially recommend the section: "Forum Guide" and "Ranking System and Points"

  • Thanks HMD for releasing good phones with good build quality. 
    Pricing is good for India people. Kindly arrange tech support in community, so we can share minor bugs and discuss with same.

    @dangitUser6 I've never used an online forum where new users aren't asked to read the "getting started" guide, rules etc as the first thing they do. All forums have them AFAIK, but I would be very interested to see one where they don't exist so please share a link.

    You're right that a banner would be a good idea, and this is fairly common forum practice. I hope that this can be implemented with this Vanilla forum software (that's its name, not the fact that it's lacking in features!).

    Cheers :)
  • how do I create a new thread?
  • many thanks @madbilly I thought my account was older than 24 hours. I`ll wait longer I guess.

    @Sachin Indoria see my post above.
  • Hello Nokia! I recently bought Nokia 7.1 two months back! I have been having random freezing and operating system crash like twice a day. What is going on with my phone? I did not run any games till date! Just been using it for texting and call! Please resolve this issue! I thought you guys make good phones! Don't make me change that 😑
  • Took me forever to find this. So I have to wait 24h to start discussions. This is BAD!

    @HandsomeJussi so your question hasn't already been asked by someone else? Did you use the search function to check? If someone else already asked the question then did their solution work for you? If so post in the thread that it worked for you too. If not then post in the thread that you still need help.

    The 24h delay is there to stop the huge amount of spam-type topics that we got in November and December where literally thousands of people posted every day the same thing "when will my phone get pie". The forum is a much easier place to look for topics now, trust me.
  • Why my new phone Nokia 2 is automatically restart , so many times.....

    Is there any way you can make the rule about 24 hours be put right in the face of new members when they register? It appears that people still aren't reading all the intro posts you wrote properly.
    Cheers :)
  • 24 hr wait time has to be informed via email to all new users, once the account is created. Why nokia is not even doing a basic thing for a forum follower?
  • Did you ever find out how? This forum is nearly as bad as the phone I'm trying to get support for 🤣
