I got a short amazing story…
I want to get the new Nokia n8, if you read this blog you know it by now.
I, being in Canada can not order one via the Nokia online store. The Canada Nokia website has.. well.. nothing there, only what the cellphone providers have, which for me, means nothing!, I can’t call any Nokia stores in the USA and place an order cause there are none, both(NYC, Boston) got closed.
I asked a dear friend of mine to place the order for me, since she lives in the USA and I asked her to ship it via the website to a different address, close to Seattle to a another friend so I could easily ride down there from Vancouver and get it.
That was last week and two days ago, she got an email from Nokia store that the order has been canceled!, no reason why, just did.
“Weird”.. I thought… okay, have no fear, I have a friend who works with me, she still has her USA visa card and an American billing address, she was kind enough to help out (thnX K’).
I was sitting with K’ yesterday in her office while she is making the order for a brand new Nokia N8 for me .. woohoo… I feel it in my hand already… wait, “unknown error has occurred”.. hmm… weird, we tried two more times and got the same error in the online store, I told K’ “thnX, lets just try again tomorrow”.
This morning, I came by K’ office and she tells me “I’m with Nokia on the phone already, on waiting for 20min’, my card was preApproved 3 times !!”…
Yes, the order did go through, however we got an error, we kept on waiting with customers service and when she answered K’ got the answer she wanted “your card will not be processed, and defiantly not 3 times”, we asked to talk to sales, kept on waiting for a long time, after talking to sales we understood the error, well, not really.
apparently, the shipping address I gave K’ and my precious friend to ship the N8 too was “invalid” as Nokia is concerned (although its a USA shipping address), have no idea why, not only that, I can not use this address or any other info I gave (like credit card number, names, billing address Etc’…) for another 5 business days!, it needs to be cleared from Nokia online sales system so they claim, what the..%$^# ?!?.
I get the feeling I will not have the N8 in my hand anytime soon after all.
Nokia, Thank you for creating a great phone with high demand (45min’ waiting time on phone, I hope its all cause of the N8) and thank you for making it imposable to get in Canada!, I’ll give up for now, what a shame!, I thought you wanted to sell phones… trust me I asked a lot of people to help out in getting it…wow, who knew it will be that hard.
I love Nokia, truly am, but this is just annoying, VERY !.
Okay apparently there are no more flagship stores in the USA (good luck in trying to get the Americas attention)
The USA online store will not accept Canadian credit cards. How us, the Canadians, can get our hands on the N8 or another new devices you release…
And of course, there is no point of even check Nokia.ca website, only Canadians cellphone providers stuff there (branded phones, which I do not like).
Think about that !!!
Hi there dear Nokia.
We, the people of Canada would LOVE to see the N8 on the Nokia.ca website, really, ordering it from the USA and pick it up there, some where from some one we barely know is kind of a stretch for us (well, at least for me)
I hope Nokia.ca will be improved soon, can’t find anything there, just what on sale with the cellphone providers…
Hi, now that Nokia sport tracker moved to Sport tracker technologies the “Polar Bluetooth WearLink heart rate belt” is now available at the new sport tracker website.
If you remember I was writing before that I was looking all over the web and just could not fine one, this is great news to people like me who love to work out
Here are the details of the plan I took with “Wind Mobile Canada“:
In voice plans I took “Chat“, 1st’ 6 months are half price
In Data I took unlimited “Infinite Mobile ”
And added unlimited text for Canada & the USA.
So, each month will be $55CAN (after the 6 months of half price voice plan, that is), that’s is not a bad deal to include unlimited data!.
So I was away for a while in a nice sunny place, was fun
On my way back I went through Heathrow, London airport and enjoyed the Nokia Flagship store there, It was great, I love that I could see some of their high end devices and some low end as well.
Here are some short not interesting videos of from the store…
All I want is: “Polar Bluetooth WearLink heart rate belt”, or just to get the Nokia N79 Active.
Really, can’t find it anywhere, could it be that its just gone ?.
Hooo.. One more thing, why there is still no support from Nokia Sports tracker to N900 ?
N900 users still work out you know and I do not want to use eCoach cause I already have a Nokia Sports tracker account, which I love!.
That’s it, just ranting today…
