Regarding the firmware - if you've loaded the software that came with the phone, then plug the micro usb lead in and your computer should instantly pick up the fact that the firmware is out of date and upload the latest. version. Just follow the instructions on the screen.
To Kabir - this forum is already full of opinions of this phone - that's what it's for. I suggest you read previous pages to get an idea of what other people think. One persons opinion is not enough, you need to read them all.
To Mytes - I've read that other people have suffered the slider button falling off. It maybe a weak point, although I've not suffered this. However, the plastic surrounding the slider has cracked sadly.
Regarding the lights around the slider, they flash to indicate a missed call or unread text, and also flash when the music player is working. You can turn this off under "settings" and "lights".
ho guys .i bought nokia 5610 in 2nd week of feb..the cell is wrking fine but there is som problem in the cell automatically it restarts & i dont know the reason why ..so plz let me know how should i resolve tht problme
Ive purchased my 5610 in January as a second fone, I have a 6288 that i use everyday. Now my fone is in prestine condition - never dropped. Last nite i switched it on after say 4 weeks and it said sim card registration failed, i could not understand why as the fone worked perfect when i used it the last time, anyway i put the off and on again and it was perfect, ive done so 10times again and its fine ever since, could it be just a freak occurence. I did have the fone stored in a colder than room temperature enviroment, could that have possibly been the cause?? Please let me know if anyone experienced such or if you could shed some light on this problem, Apart from this fone is problem free and awesum.
And where do u get the latest firmware? My phone has got 4.20 but someone has mentioned 4.83 to be latest? where will i find this?
Hi All, Im a great fan of GSMARENA and their forum proved worth it. After doing a search for the call duration display (while on a call) in this forum, i found that its absolutely not possible to get that activated. Battery life was also one of the other searches i made, and changed it to GSM. Still nothing improved. Im thinking of draining the battery completely and then charging it fully as someone have mentioned in the forum. Lemme give the updates after doing so...
I have two quick queries here (not sure how to search it here):
1. my phone's mini slider (for music player and radio) came off. I mean the black color plastic portion of it. I tried to just insert it and it got fit but not sure when this will fall down again and it would be really hard to track it as well.
2. the lights next to the mini slider glows on its own randomly. Not sure how to deactivate it as it really annoys while u keep the phone in dark place.

To Kabir - all we can do is give our opinions on the phone, which is what everyone has done here already. We can't tell you whether to buy it or not - only you can know that.
planning to get 5610 but read about so much negative comment. got to think twice.
we comment so much in forum...not only this forum, many other forum are also complaining about 5610 but the most important point is, DO NOKIA KNOWS~!

hey guys please tell whether should i buy this mobile phone or not? i m really confused after reading some of the negative comments. please reply if u hav this phone.
I don't know why the previous poster was saying the bass isn't good - I've found it very good if you change the equaliser settings accordingly, so I WOULD recommend it if you are a bass addict.
I've done a search online and apparently it IS still avaiable on Vodafone??
And naija boi - I don't know how your disgusting comments got past the admin!
its amazing, i love it...music lover out there, u'll love this fon.
Plz suggest me a phn with really cool camera quality and great sound... And I am a Bass Adicted guy.
Please suggest ... coz I am REALLY CONFUSED.
guys...i was a big fan of 5610 since i bought it 2 months ago..everything was goin fine..but i got shocked while i saw the dedicated music key came out from the phone..i found it was very sophisticated, attached to its screws..the plastic broke inside..i am very upset..
I just bought this phone last week and I just noticed that there was a body defect. Ita working nicely but its irritating to clean the LCD always. overall the fone is great no problems watsoever
Hi... I just wanted to know whats the max resolution of video i can make with this phone?
176*144 or bigger like 640*480???
> "JABS" - Do you have any proof that Vodafone UK have dropped the phone? Please don't post any so-called facts without backing them up first
Got a question about the Nokia 5610?
Use the SEARCH BOX at the bottom of the page before you post your question as it may have already been already answered. :)
I am looking forward to buy this phone. I am not a hightech cell user nor interested to install any software. I'm only concerned about durability, originality, extended memory card, good quality music and net surfing. Would you guys please recommend me whether I wud but 5610 or not. What other options there may be at this price range?
