Mia, 21 Jan 2010Hi,
I was just wondering if the phone could still play youtube videos since it doesn't have 3... moreDear Mia,
What is the connection between 3G and youtube...?
3G is a connectivity facility and youtube is an online video streaming method.
I connect to the internet using wifi and no problem with playing youtube files...
Either you can download the youtube application or you can use default browser to play youtube files...
Among 3rd party software applications, skyfire is the best so far which could play youtube videos that smoothly...
I think you're connecting to the internet using 3G or 3.5G connectivity... As this phone doesn't support 3G you have to be satisfactory with 2G or 2.5G (Edge).
But besides 5530 has wifi after all... I never use Edge to browse internet when I have wifi...!
Please anyone comment here, whether it's possible to view streaming videos (youtube) through a good Edge connection... (That information is for Mia...)

You don't have to do anything....
Youtube is enabled default... Just visit www.youtube.com and check it out by yourself...!
I was just wondering if the phone could still play youtube videos since it doesn't have 3G.
Thanks in advance.
Been using this phone since a long time, except from the slow OS and a bit average camera this phone is great in this price. Definitely worth every penny. I also posted a review here

Hi dude how r u .thanx fr ur info yar.nd should v enable da flash in the skyfire r it is enable by default
Dear all friends,
After a long waiting period, now firefox has come to our mobile...! (Mozilla firefox... the best PC internet browser ever... It'll be the best in mobiles too... I wish that...)
Skyfire for S60V5 (Symbian touch screen phones) beta version has been released... It's wonderful... Just installed it and enjoying it very much...
Type above link in default browser in your 5530 and get the application...
Or else download the application to your computer and install using PC suit. here's the link.
The features you get from skyfire,
** Kinetic scrolling support
** Very fast and easy browsing
** Flash and silverlight support
** facebook games (farmwill etc) support
What else do you want from a mobile browser...?

Someone has commented about a 5 minutes of start up which is ridiculous... I also had the same trouble few weeks ago and I had to format may memory card and hard reset my phone in order to get the proper condition back...
This very slow start up is a result of so many garbage software in your phone... We always try so many different different applications all the time and sometimes we don't even know what do they do... We just want to check them out and if we're not satisfactory we just remove them...
Some of them have start up features which adds some underneath processes to the phones start up... (Just like in your computer...) Some of these start up processes are required (for an example anti virus real time process) but most of them are not really essential... They just exist and slow down the whole start up procedure of the mobile even without giving us any chance to know what are they... (Specially with patched and cracked versions of software has that weakness and we have to be careful with these..)
Sometimes even we remove the program, the start up entry could be still there slowing down the overall performance.. So actually there's no way of making sure what program has caused the slow down.. May be one, may be two or more...
So if you don't want any bandage solutions and if you want complete fix, then you MUST hard reset your Nokia and format your memory card...
Then install the software that you really trust and you really want checking each of them one by one restarting the phone...

Your question "can't see the files in memory card in 5530" is not that clear to me but I think you've saved your files in a folder which can't be accessed by the default 'file manager'. (I think you know how to use default file manager... Right...? It's in menu - applications - file manager)
If you can't see the folders and files you've stored in your memory card using the above file manager then you should install "Y - browser" a free, 3rd party file manager... Using this applications you can see almost all the hidden files and folders in phone memory as well as memory card... Check whether now you can access your files...
luisito, 20 Jan 2010 my friend nuwan!! I sent you 2 video players to your email well theres not only a single pl... moreDear luisito,
Thank you very much for your reply... I tried all three applications in my mobile and two of them worked but the 'Mobitubia' player didn't open at all... (Though it installed well.)
I hadn't tried none of these applications that you've sent, however I've heard about 'coreplayer' as a powerful player for mobile devices.
But as to my disappointment, even 'coreplayer' couldn't handle high quality video files and it only gave me the sounds... It was clear to me that 'coreplayer' doesn't use hardware acceleration because the video file the real player can play without any lag, couldn't be played using coreplayer properly. Delays, breaks, no video at all... And it didn't even recognize flv files that in built flv player could play easily.
I would say "Smartmovie" is a better player than 'coreplayer' because it at least showed me the video out put and was not that slow as coreplayer... But still it doesn't use 'hardware acceleration' as the default real player... (I will send a copy of 'Smartmovie' to your email address...)
The installer program gave me some two trial applications that made me angry about it..! (It's kind of a shareware right..?) I can't say anything about the other player as I couldn't make it work for me...
Anyway, many thanks for your kindness my dear friend luisito...
please send me a mail describing the procedure to hack yhe phone along with hello ox2

3 things to deal
you assure me about nokia start sound thanx not worr... moreDear Tarek,
I'm sorry for your troubles... I think for the first and second problems of yours will be solved by a hard reset of the phone... I think you know how to hard reset a Nokia and it's very simple... I've described the full procedure in a previous post, please follow it...
For the 3rd question of yours,
I'm sorry... As far as I know you can't do that..
You can't use your phones wifi internet connection for the internet requirement of the computer... If you connect the mobile through PC suit it will use the Edge internet facility instead of wifi...!
That's what I know (from online and from personal experience)
But... If that capability is available, it would have been great...
If there's anybody knows how to do it... Please share with us... I'm wondering aren't there any 3rd party software which can do the above...
please can anyone tell me how to access things on the memory card on the 5530 i cant find things like photos that are on the memory card .thankyou
Nuwan, 20 Jan 2010Dear luisito, about that ttpod mini player I've already commented on my review about Music ... more my friend nuwan!! I sent you 2 video players to your email well theres not only a single player can play all video formats but collect them and with 5 of them more or less you can play almost all formats. btw have you tried handwritten calculator? nimbuzz photobrowser, and paint pad, hey I cant installed a gdesk for n97 or htc etc. always tell me imposible to open file not admited(in spanish of course, remember my phone is in spanish thats I cant get clear the messages in read me tutorials :S take care ;)
I got it and was soooo happy but then i started to dowmload applications and u see they are saved onto ur memory card and then when u start it up it freezes on the nokia screen so to turn it on u have to remove the memory card and then start it up then once its on put it back in and then it takes like 5 mins to start up.....
