lorinser, 17 Mar 2010hi. i need help my phone turns off when i answer a call ????Dear lorinser,
If this happens once in a while I think it's because you're still having the old firmware in your mobile... You'll have to update your firmware in this case...
If this happens always (or often) when you are answering a phone call... Then the problem should be with your battery contacts... I mean battery has been loosened and the contact between the battery and the phone's battery connectors might be not that good...
You can use small pieces of papers where ever you think loosening occurs.. And put some folded paper in between the battery and the battery cover... (Because battery cover in this mobile is bit loose...)
Hope this will help...

When using Sis Signer, you'll need 2 files which are particular to your mobile and your mobile only...
1) certificate file (Extension: *.cer)
2) Key file (Extension: *.key)
I'm pretty sure it won't ask a 'pass word' or something similar... I think you've misinterpreted this 'key' file as a 'pass word' file... Haven't you..?
Anyway, you will have to go to the following web site and register there...
And then you should upload your IMIE no to that web site and after 48 hours you can download your own Key file and certificate file...
You must do this procedure if you want your phone hacked...
Don't worry... It's not harmful because I've done it for several phones and not only me, thousands of people out there do this in order to hack their mobiles...

just a quick question but completely out of the blue my ovi store isn't working, it just says unable to connect to server, yet browsing other web pages works fine, I havent tried it again yet today, but has anyone else experienced this?
bastigutz, 17 Mar 2010Dear Nuwan,
Is it safe to update your firmware?
Cause im planning to.Dear bastigutz,
As to my personal experience 'Yeah... it's safe'
But there are people who've got bad experience in updating firmware... (problems like mobile never starts again..! I know that is weird...) But personally I haven't had such a problem with any mobile so far...
I guess you have the warranty for your 5530... Then you can take the risk and do the thing... Right...? My Nokia 5530 doesn't even have the warranty... But I went through the firmware update thing.. Nothing bad happened...
Anyway, you better back up all your private data before the update procedure... If you search in previous posts in this GSMarena site, you'll find a detailed set of instructions posted by me, in order to follow when updating the firmware...
Good luck brother..

I think you still have the old firmware in your mobile.. (The old firmware has plenty of bugs and specially restarting problems always...) Please update your firmware to the newest version... (That is 20.0.80 as I remember)
If you're afraid to do so by yourself, go to the nearest Nokia care center and they'll do it for you...
Anonymous, 16 Mar 2010are you sure about third party software won't void the warranty? when your phone ["symbia... moreDear Anonymous friend..,
As I told you even earlier my dear friend, I'm not a Nokia representative... So I really can't say exactly they will do this or that... But for me, if something happens due to a 3rd party application then it's only a Software issue... Nokia will not hold the responsibility for your private data or the applications you've installed... but it'll always recover Nokia software and they are of course supposed to do so...! If they don't, that's ridiculous...!
For an example, I've got licensed Windows Vista in my laptop... and several times I screwed the things with it just due to installations of 3rd party applications... (I do lots of experiments to select the best out of everything...) But it didn't void my Windows license... I could again reinstall my OS and they accepted as it's genuine right away...!
So... if Nokia doesn't do that.. That's a big problem.. That's just like telling like this...
'Hei.. We're giving you a smart mobile and you can install 3rd party software in it and take the maximum use of it for the price you pay... BUT... we are not responsible of repairing your mobile after you've done so...! In other words, though you have a smart phone, we don't encourage you to use its full capabilities...'
Why Nokia will say something like above...? Don't you really think that's ridiculous...?
Anybody from Nokia... Please clarify this for us...

No friend... I'm afraid You can't fast forward or Rewind using the home screen mini player... Even when you have the latest firmware... May be Nokia will fix this issue in their next firmware...
snicker (philippines, 16 Mar 2010hi to nuwan,
i have read a lot of comments coming from you... i can say that you really are... moreDear Snicker from Philippines,
Frankly speaking I haven't used 5800 much in order to tell you regarding its freezing problems... But I've used it more than enough to discover its features and all... (In order to comment on things like freezing you have to use a mobile at least for a month with heavy usage... Right...?)
I also have seen lots of posts in internet that 5800 has such problems but my very honest idea is bit different on this.. As a best selling mobile 5800 has proven its popularity and in the mean time it's an obvious thing that it gets lots of user complaints as well... I don't thing all those people who bought that mobile has those complains... Only few do... But as the phone is very popular those complains would also spread easily... Right...?
On the other hand if a mobile doesn't have so many complains it doesn't mean that it really doesn't have trouble... It also means that that particular mobile is not that popular among people...! Get what I'm saying...?
So I don't honestly think Nokia 5800 has much more freezing troubles etc compared to 5530 because both mobiles has same OS, same resolution, same processor, same RAM which are all about performance...
However 5530 has got different hardware for its touch screen layers so you'll feel a difference in touch response... But this is not relevant to what you've asked...
Of course I'm a very happy user of Nokia 5530 and even now if I have to choose between Nokia 5800 and Nokia 5530, I will definitely go with Nokia 5530 because I really love its design (shape & size) and the overall build quality.. However as everybody knows Nokia 5800 has more features..
When it comes to a Symbian phone, you have to understand that it's a smart mobile... (just like a mini computer) so freezing troubles are somewhat common... it's common for any smart mobile not only for 5800... So if you that much care about that issue and you really don't mind to trad 'Smart capabilities' for a 'Not hanging/freezing' mobile then... it's your choice... Because I've used Nokia 1100 (which is a very basic phone) and it never hanged...!
Regarding 5530... Hanging also depends on your usage actually... For me, I am a hard core user of my mobile and it rarely hangs... And I'm sure if I was an ordinary user who only uses the default software and do the default stuff... then this mobile would never have hanged...!
