I am planning to purchase Nokia 5610, i want to know that is the D-pad keys are touch type or pressing type?
You play music from phone memory, but did you take the microSD card out? If still the same, maybe you can try a faster microSD card (class-4 or class-6) as it works great for me.
I don't recommend storing music in phone memory. Try to keep as much free space as possible. If your phone memory is almost full, the phone will be slow and unstable. For me, I always have around 10MB free in my phone memory and the phone is stable.
Store all your music in the microSD card. Try with small number first, maybe 10 songs or 20 songs. Then try 50 songs. Then increase to 100 songs (and so on). Try till your phone start to hang/restart, then you know your phone's limit. Maybe every 5610 have different limit on this?? (I dunno why, but some people have problem, some don't, that's why)
may be i am too lucky!
i am using 5610 from 4 months. i hanged 4 times till now.
every day i will listen to 2 - 3 hrs of music , atleast 1 hr continuously. it didn't hang after 30 min.
clarity of music is exceptional . but, when it hangs, we don't have any other option but to open the battery to restart.
that tik tik sound...i wish it was a normal one for a camera phone. i have been using camera phone for a long time, but havent seen/ heard such weired thing. Previously this 5610 has no such sound with camera, and all on a sudden it starts making such noise.
Ok, i tried your technique, i tried to play the songs from my phone memory. sorry to say...(as i already have said, my bad luck..) its hangs...yeah the good thing is it restarts and just like u said, it had to reload the play list.
My point was, why would i buy such a thing knowing that it performs well when its in "Normal" mode!
The 'tik tik tik' sound from the camera is normal. Don't worry. It is because this phone has a "real" mechanical shutter and autofocus lens. In fact since it makes all your photos better looking, it is a good thing :)
The phone hang/restart problem is sometimes because of the microSD card you use. I tried using a cheap and slow 2GB microSD and load it with 500+ songs, and it hangs/restarts almost everyday.
If I only store about 10-20 songs, or just completely remove the microSD card, it will NEVER hang/restart.
So now I bought a very good quality 4GB microSDHC from Adata (class-6 speed) and load the same 500+ songs. It never hang anymore but it still restarts by itself maybe once a week. Anyway I'm using a Flash-wallpaper (swf file) with animation now which makes the phone a bit busy and could be one of the factor also (it's too beautiful I'll just live with it).
When it restarts, it will stop playing music, go blank for 5 seconds and then back to normal, and update the music library all over again. Depend on how much music you have, it will take from a few seconds to a few minutes for the update to complete, and then you can start playing music again.
Some people say the phone will hang when you receive SMS while playing music, but I never have this problem. Try reducing the number of music you store insidde and use a better quality microSD card, hopefully it helps.
Conclusion, if you keep your phone nice and simple it will not hang/restart. But if you use a slow microSD, or load too many songs, or use animated wallpaper/screensaver, it might restart but quickly return to normal in 5 seconds...
For me, happening once or twice a week is not to bad considering how heavily I use it and truly enjoy it when it is "normal" :)
Hey ppl.. i have had my slider key problem fixed. It chipped off totally, i mean the entire portion around the slider key came off in my hands and the inside components were seen.. i took it to nokia care and they replaced the phone after having it for 15 days, then the same night it chipped off again. So i took it back and somehow managed to get another phone as a replacement.. so far so good.. hoping that im not gonna jinx it... but this new phone hangs on every menu.. feeling lil irritated with this factor but what to do.. ive learnt to live with this as i made the choice of purchasing it.... any new updates in the firmware will be much awaited.
Nokia 5610 hangs (so far i found) in the following situation:
1. WHile Listening to music player if any SMS comes, it hangs...compleet hang, even to option to restart...
2. If you are listening music for more then 30 mins at a time it hangs and restarted.
3. even the worse thing now i'm finding...it makes sound/nosie (not the music) 'tik tik tik' while operating camera....
even tho my 5610 has the warranty, but i have to take it to the NOKIA center several times and they could not fix the hang problem.
i'm really having BAD LUCK....others may not...
To dilip: I do not have N81 to compare. Please ask someone else, or go to a handphone shop and test it yourself.
(My phone is 5610 and my dad's is N73)
hello im goin to buy this but i heard u all saying this phone hang n restart itself izzit got this kind of problem???how it hang n restart>??
5610 hangs/restarts repeatedly. I took it to nokia care and they resolved one problem, but yet to solve the restart problem.
The main advantage of this phone is music. But my bad luck is, whenever i try to listen to music more then 30 mins it hangs. and for the information, i dont have any virus problem on my memory card.
good luck guys with ur 5610 luck. Hope yours one wont be like my one. :/
well guys,5610 is the best phone but only for this time, later or sooner nokia were going to lunch again another unit..so guys think wisely choose what is your most likely phone the phone that accurate to ur self and the phone u really like it..thakz.. 5610 is really good phone, the sound is so good aso the camera..
To Lynn - you think the 5610 has the same specs as the SE W910? The camera on the W910 is 2MP, on the 5610 its 3.2MP. The W910 has no autofocus and no flash - the 5610 has both. And the quality of the music on the 5610 is greater. The only advantage for the W910 is that it is thinner and lighter.
To Kristy - you want details of this phone? This forum is now 105 pages long, so I think thats already been covered many times over.
