Recently bought the N80, being a convert from SE P900, and thought the N80 is a great phone. However to my great disappointment, the N80 cannot fully sync with Outlook contact (notes field). The contact notes field is truncated after certain number of characters (approx. 256 letters/spaces). It seems that the N80's contact (notes field) cannot handle too many characters. This is terrible for such an expensive phone!

Any one have the same problem?

that has always been my concern with Nokia's S60 phones. Sure it can sync with Outlook but it does it with a very terrible way. With Nokia's contact, you can add as many fields as you please, but not all these fields are properly mapped to Outlook.

That's why I moved from Nokia 3650 to Imate Smartphone2 about 2 years ago, was a great move though I miss some Nokia's feature...

These days, I would want to get N80 just for its bigger screen resolution and its ability to support WMA audio too other than that, other features are cool... then again, I hardly use my Smartphone2 as DAP either... so who knows, I might just get another Imate.

As long as they're 3G...
