My friend who also uses 5800xm charges his phone turned off. I've been doing the same thing for 2 weeks now. Is it okay to turn on your cellphone while charging? Is it okay to use your cellphone (i.e. texting, gaming, watching vids) while charging?
Great phone! Bought mine from a doctor who used it for 2 months, been using it for 2 weeks already. The price was 8700php + another 300php for openline. Got problem with battery life which only lasts for 2 days, solved it by changing network mode to GSM, now it lasts longer. Took me 2 1/2 days to finally locate the radio >_< Nice for watching movies and videos. Not that good in browsing photos specially when you have so many photos because you can't view them by folders.

Those days, phones were using ni-mh cells (nickel-metal hydrate) batteries and those batteries needed to be charged 6 to 8 hrs for the 1st usage. nowdays, we all use lithium Ion (LI), so u do not need to charge that long. once teh battery is full, ur done. only difference is u need to charge it few times (3-4 cycles charge) before the optimum life span of ur battery is achieved.
Hope tis helps:-)

i have a small stupid question, when i bought my 5800 i searched again and again the safety book for anything say that i should leave the phone off on the charger for couple of hours or something '4hours' before starting it and i didn't find any thing....so i connected it to the charger for about 30 min. Then opened the phone.
Did i do wrong by this?and what are the effects of such action??
Is a very powerfull device. But never underestimate the power of a 5 directions scroll like in SE P900. It allows to move along the screen without touching it. Very usefull when looking for contacts numbers and plenty off other stuffs.
Harpunit, 22 Mar 2010Hello guyz.....
I am planning to switch on to 5800 from N72...
But am quite confused refe... moreDude let me clarify your doubts-
-software of the phone is very stable, it doesnt hangs as the people quote, but it does, when-
-you install s60v3 softwares, they create some instability in the operating system, yes they do run most of the times, but along with that they do leave some mark, whether its an instability issue, battery draining issue, or phone hangs and restarts automatically.
Technically, it receives some exception which cant be handled and thus phone shuts down and restarts.
(reason many application sites from where we people download cracked software/applications are generally for s60v3 as there are very less s/ws for s60v5, so site admins test them on s60v5 if successful they say it can run on s60v5, but most of the time they are incompatible)
-while browsing yes browser hangs when ram space is less or when heavy flash website is accessed, but very few times browser shuts down on its own...
-Memory card problem is arised nowdays only with very few people, but I must say you can consider it as a problem.
- Resistive touch is great, if you update to new version of firmware.
-other positives include its rough and tough and have good battery life.
Negatives in my case is no divx/xvid/avi support till now.
No, usb charging.
Still pictures are mediocre but video recording is above average.
(this all is based on my personal experiences rest I feel phone is very good according to its price)

I am not very sure why should the application misbehave this way. However, I had si... moreThanks again for your advice Pavan! I suppose i'll have to delete the service provider connection. A pity though that the 5800xm does not give you an option to choose between connection options like the E51 does. Perhaps a firmware upgrade is necessary.
No, I have not fiddled with Service provider specific GPRS services as this would affect MMS, etc.

5630 XpressMusic doesn't has GPS.
It seems you're not concerned about these features.
You seem to be concerned about camera and Nokia brand.
Also price obviously will be in picture.
Check out : Nokia 5230 Nuron, 6303 classic, E63.
If camera is very important than 6303 is your phone.

Which generally makes the home screen button irresponsive.
What you need to do is a Hard Reset by typing *#7370#
Switch off your mobile now press RED key, GREEN key, CAMERA button key and by holding it switch on your mobile and the Hard Reset follows.
(do remember to backup your phone data before doing either of the process)
After that your problem is solved.
I am having difficulty with the 'dialer' and 'end call'keys on the phone, they do not work. For me to dial I have to press 'menu' key then press the dial key in order to make a call. Further, the shortcuts on the home screen do not show up and the 'dialer' and 'contacts' on the home screen do not work either. I have installed and reinstalled the latest device software and phone software updates etc and nothing has changed. What else can I do?
