Altaf, 22 Dec 2009Dear Nuwan,
Could you please tell me how to update firmware and from where.
You have men... more
About your question regarding "Bright light" our dear friend 'Nikko' has already answered so he is totally right... I don't have to say anything more...
To update your firmware you've got two options..
1) Through your phone (If your phone's internet connection is fast enough & stable enough)
2) Through your computer
Method 1)Go to Menu - Settings - Phone - Phone Management - Device Updates (That's all. But this method is only recommended if you have stable, fast wifi internet connection.)
Method 2) Do a search in Google "Nokia Software Updater" and then download so called application to your computer (Don't ever forget to download it from Original Nokia site... Not from anywhere else). Install it, run it and follow the instructions.
For more details search for "firmware" in this very site... (Use the search for comments box below all the comments...)
Hope this helps... Good luck friend...

I'm sorry for your inconvenience...
But according to your description, I feel this should be the first time you're using Nokia Symbian phone...
Because the crappy Nokia's gallery which mixes everything up (as you said) is very common freaky feature in all Nokia symbian phones (as far as I know... Correct me if I'm wrong) and I don't know who finds it useful.
So what you tell is true.. Nokia gallery totally sucks and when we concern about organizing things... It doesn't provide any sort of a easy way of doing so... If we have thousands of photos with hundreds of folders... Then this becomes worst and everything will be messed up in the gallery...!
But it's very strange Nokia still hasn't notified this big big mistake... (I think it's because there are people who only has few images in their phone and without searching everywhere they just want to see all of them in a one place...! That's gallery...)
However about your Music Problem... There are two solutions...
1) Free solution is,
Don't go to file manager to open mp3 files... Just open Music player... Then browse through the music player... If you want to select the Artist, Album etc... There are options... Or else you can even select all songs to play shuffle etc...
(But still you can't see the Folder structure in this default Nokia music player... That means you can't play a bunch of songs that you've put in to a single folder unless all the songs are belonged to the same album or artist..! That really weird... If you're a music lover I'm sure you'll understand what I'm saying)
2) However... There's a costly way to achieve above 'folder play' facility though... There's an application (unfortunately not free) called "Power MP3" and that allows you to play by folders... But personally I don't encourage those Non-Free software in any kind... So try to find cracked version of it... Do a little search and you'll have one... (Just like I did...!)
But above two solutions are for Music only... For Images... Organizing photos... I don't know when Nokia will introduce a proper solution...
Hello... Nokia... For your attention too...! (Though I'm sure you're deaf sometimes...!)

hi nikko i've visited the site zedge.net and i have downloaded the themes for my uni... more
Search for Nokia 5800 themes... As this phone is still very new to the field, searching for themes for this device will not give you a much result.
So search for 5800 themes and applications... Almost all of them are compatible with this phone as well.
Or else try N 97 applications...
Note : N 97, 5800 Xpress Music & 5530 Xpress Music all three phones have same operating system, same processor, same resolution screen...

download one of their themes there (.SIS) File Format. After that, copy and paste it in your "INSTALLS" Folder inside your phone's mass storage (Memory Card) then go to Menu - Applications - File Manager - Installed Files and after that you can install it in your memory card. :]

You can update your phone using Nokia Software Updater. First, you have to fully charge your battery and second, make a back up on your memory card before starting the update.
mobile-junkie, 22 Dec 2009 @Nuwan yes, dear Nuwan i have done this procedure of 3 full charging and discharging cycles... moreexactly how did you do it? im still confused. i've researched a bit and they say that it's bad to fully discharge the battery. so.. after buying, fully charge then what? i dont know what to do. :(
