my fone was okay now when i update the softaware from version 6.30 to 8.30. it works far better before it was updated, it never hangs and the sotware is okay, but still crucial care for my fone because its harware is not good enough as it seems.
Apparently it is not permitted to express here anywhere near my level of contempt to those who designed, manufactured, tested and decided to go forward with the production and selling of the phone despite its poor design, manufacturer defects, test results and failure to perform -- even though it would not be based upon race/ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, disability or religion, even though it would be based upon the intentional production of a HORRIBLE phone (who cares how it looks?). Though touted by T-Mobile as an "upgrade," it isn't. Don't buy it. Don't support Nokia. When I called Nokia, their call-center idiot (not based upon race/ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, disability or religion) told me to check their website for a software update to see if that would correct any of the problems. When I asked if there were any software updates, he said no. Without going into the specific problems I've experienced with its phone function, address book, text and messenger services, music player and camera feature, suffice it to say I'm glad Nokia doesn't manufacture pharmaceuticals -- the patients would be dead.
this is a gr888 phone, but i hate the camera sound and that it cant be turned off, plus that when you use the music slide and then press back, it will not return to the same place that you were in, like the SE...just
Once again Hi to all Nokia fans. You can read my comment on 1/9/09 regarding my experience w/ the 5610. I've gone thru hell & back trying to figure out the problem. A word of advice to all, DO NOT BUY FROM AUTHORIZED DEALERS, THEY ARE NOT T-MOBILE CORP. THEY ARE OWNED BY A PRIVATE CO. That's where I originally got the Nokia 5610 & wasn't aware that they were owned by a private co. & not T-Mobile. Anyway, after a long & tiresome dispute w/ T-mobile they came to the conclusion that this authorized dealer might have been selling refurbished phones! Please note that the Nokia 5610 was recalled a little over a year ago due to problems with the display...per T-Mobile, the problem was fixed & put back on the market. I've read your comments & hopefully I'm as lucky as some of you who really like the 5610. I just hope that with the new shipment that T-mobile is sending me(brand new phone from the manufacturer) the signal/coverage problem is fixed...I'll keep you posted! P.S. why I like Nokias over others? they get dropped & don't break!(well, at least not that easy...they are sturdy.)
my nokia 5610 is really awesome to be used.... you can simply get it when you need a sweet phone....
My 5610 was really awesome so far and the only lagging thing is the missing navigation buttons on headset. Hope Nokia will upgrade for the next models..
sam, 21 Dec 2008stupid slow phone. very fragile music button .broke the 3rd dayyou pressed too hard maybe?
I bought this phone (the blue) and had no problem. Looks like mine was recently manufactured, it came with the latest firmware. Maybe Nokia fixed the problems with this phone.
A friend of mine have this phone too (the red) and its still perfect. I saw him dropping his phone from 1,5m and didnt broke.
Good day to everybody!!! I have problem on my nokia 5610, before i can make online on yahoo thru my mobile, but i think i make some changes and now everytime i want to connect to messenger in yahoo thru my mobile it always ask me to "redirection" always asking to redirection to another server... Im very please and thanksful to those who can help me regarding my problem.
I've been using this phone for over a year now, and it never fails me...
I had the navi slides cracked and blank screen problem once after I dropped the phone, Nokia replaced the slider and fixed the screen and there has been no other problems so far..
This is the first time I use Nokia phone and it has been satisfactory so far! It's time for me to move on to a business phone now, but my next phone will be Nokia still...
For having hangs and restart problem, you may try to restore to factory setting or formatting it. After that updating to the latest firmware with the provided data cable and nokia software.
This should correct the problem.
I like this phone with the function i needed. This phone giving problem on the next day after i started to use it. The phone hang, when open music player it will updating it self untill it hangs, but i formatting it and updating it with the latest firmware and the problem are gone untill now.
I can said there was no perfect and problemless phone in the world.
B4 this i using n80 also giving me problem such as keypad and software problem. Sony ericsson phone also got problem when using it. With the price sold today, it is affordable to many people.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970it seems that many people are having problems with this model so they are trying to sell those to others for low prizes ... i dont recommend u buying a second hand set for the nokia 5610 instead i recommend u buying a brand new with the warrenty period of at least for one year ... otherwise if u really wanna go for second hand stuff go for some other model .
I have had around 5 different nokia phones up to date and I have experienced that too...sometimes names don't appear on text messsages. And mostly it is because i have numbers duplicated in the Contacts list, or it is store in the phone memory AND also stored in the SIM card. So make sure you either erase one out of the two or use only phone memory for contacts...that could be the issue
I have been reading all your comments & it seems that the majority have problems with this phone. I recently fell victim to this model. Three days ago I upgraded from an old Nokia to the Nokia 5610, I have had to exchange it three times! What's the problem? I strongly believe that this phone, with all its modern technological displays, it is so sensative that it seems to conflic to radio frequencies/waves disabling it from receiving the network coverage...I lose signal strength and coverage in my home an surrounding neighborhood. T-Mobile is my provider and it is also a factor that its signal is just too weak for this all powerful and pretty phone. Yes, its been a headache and I am extremely annoyed and have lost all trust in Nokia and T-Mobile. If anyone has had a similar experience I urge you to please let comment asap. thx.
This phone is beaaaaaautiful! I didnt experienced any of the problems these people below are talking about! Mine is the blue one, simple beaaaaaautiful!
I used to own a 5610. I was so excited when i bought it, but when i tried texting and received a message only fone number appeared. I thought it was just the settings but whatever i do only the number appears no contact name. Its like i bought it today and the next it was in a nokia service center. But they solved the problem just upgraded my fone's firmware. I thought that was it problem solved but later that night i experienced my fones 1st hang of many to come. Unfortunately after 6months of usage bad thing happened, it slipped right out of my pocket and lost it. But the good thing is i had a reason to buy a new one and happy to say i'm a proud owner of an n82. N82 rocks!
