Oh well... I have tried using the phone only for two weeks, and now im back on track to my N95 8gb after not being satisfed in 2wks... I think, 5800 is a great phone everyone wants to have in their hands "IF" you'll use it as an audio device, mp3, etc. (anything that has something to do with audio) "BUT" if you are looking for a phone that has a good Photo Quality, this isn't for you! This is just as good as other low-end mobile phones. But not GREAT!!! If you send text very often, and only one-hand is free while on the run, not possible to send message faster than normal... And if you're a clumsy-type of person, NEVER EVER have in mind of buying this one...This isn't made of titanium, stainless, brass,etc... It's one hell of a plastic crap! Most of the phones made by Nokia are plastic-made... But the quality of plastic they used in this phone is really cheap... Aside from that, the camera of the phone, as suggested by most of the phone owner, can only be used at day time... I'll leave the rest of the features of the phone be commented by others.

> In reply to Anonymous @ from HHHH - click to readHmmm, I see your attempt is quiet emotional, you almost take it all, it seem to be traditional for your kind of guy you are, amazing isn't it, even I'm trying to keep my privacy!:-(

As for nokia or ovi company, they are not my concern, and they are not dependent on me, but if they are, than they shall come personally out to me with adequate business contract paper, so i can bee payed for my work and wasting my time, but I know I em not their favorite for that mater!

u can try to encode the movie file first into mp4 using any of the video convertor and then try to play it. I m sure it will work like a charm.

Since i've got the new software V20

i ve tried to load a real player movie in my 5800 its for 280 MB its duration is 1:45 min. and it s the only thing i have on the memory card the rest is empty, but when im trying to play this movie it is not working properly

it gives me like shot by shot like pictures on row not a movie, it gives me a shot and freze on it for like 5 seconds and then give me another shot and freeze on it etc. (and it gives me like pixels squares)

so should i have something like a codec or whatever to resolve this issue, or to change the extension of the movie or somthing ?!!!!!
or this issue happening with all 5800 XM ?!!!!!!

♣Thanks very much

those who have security code problems or any other problem after updating to latest firmware v20 are required to just hard reset the phone....
hold down green key,red key and camera key simultaneously and while holding them together switch on the phone...don't release any of the keys until the phone is fully powered up and shows resetting.release the keys when phone asks for time and date to set. now phone will be reset and default code will be 12345. please make sure to backup all your data in the phone memory because after hard resetting all of your data in the phone memory would be erased.

** GOOD NEWS **
1. Firmware update to 20 fixes the SCREEN HUE CHANGING Issue. I used to get the error 10-20 times a day. Have not got even once in 3 days after update.

2. Firmware update to 20 also makes a changes in proximity sensor behaviour. Now the screen touch locks but the light does not go off when the sensor is covered.

BATTERY LIFE : The battery life is poor for 3-4 charge cycles. Please make it a point to have the battery fully discharged before recharging to Full. This will lead to a better battery performance.
