My repaired 808 was delivered today :)
If you missed why my 808 was in repair, read this post:
I am now iPhone user (aka 5 words you hopefully will never read again on my blog)
My problem was described in there ;)
I was able to reproduce the 3G bug in 30sec - 2min before the repair, by going downstairs where 3G signal was only about 50%.
At the same location, I tested it again today and guess what... so far, no problem at all!!
(I downloaded about 20MB without any crashes)
What was fixedThe delivery note reveals some interesting facts. Sadly there is not too much technical detail on it and the description may be different from what your Care Center will write down (non standard form).
- Swap 808 PureView GLOBAL LIGHT
Serial Number: xxx
- CAMERA MOD Galileo Master
- Modul switch
The last entry "module switch" probably only refers to the first part (swap 808...), which means nothing more than they switched my main board.
I know that for sure, because I got a new IMEI.
While the "camera mod" is more interesting.
I never mentioned any camera issues to them and as you can see on my flickr-page, my camera was fine.
Maybe newer 808's got a silent camera fix?
Or did they just break my cam by accident and then had to repair it?
Really don't know, also"Galileo Master" says nothing to me... I will call them and ask about it next week (hotline is already closed for this weekend).
Whats interesting as well, is the signal strength itself.
I mentioned the location where I had about 50% coverage, in the same spot, I now have almost full signal!
Only speaking for my experience today, the connection got faster and way more stable (not counting the crashes itself).
I guess that proves that something was seriously wrong with my phone...
We will see how long it lasts, but so far its all good now.
I let you guys know if any problems come up or if I get any details about the repair itself.
I am really glad Nokia was finally able to repair this critical bug and I hope this posts helps some people with similar issues.
