is there a difference on where its made? i asked a seller where the phone was made he said china.. but the one on this site says hungary.. lol.. does it matter?
GT, 02 Mar 2009After exactly 30 days of use, my 5800's screen has gone blank. Took it to the nokia repair sho... moreMy phone has just had exactly the same problem though I can still access the phone through the PC
Good News! the 5800 NAM is back on the flagship store shelves in NYC & Chi-town.
One newspaper in HK received over 20 complaints of 5800 with unstable ear piece volume problem,
7 other cases involved phones got hung up to the point they couldn't be switched off.
2 other cases involved phone could not make or receive call
2 cases involved auto adjustment of the screen...either totally white or totally dark
The almighty brand refused to quote the number of complaints, repaire, or exchanged involved (for the city)
And of course the company "cares" about the customers so much to the point it wanted to ensure all customers should use their handsets as much as possible, hence a "total recall" was out of the question.
Kyuubi, 08 Mar 2009Lol it's really weird up in canada for phone but i saw your iphones and there a rip off too XD... more3G is up to 384kb/s
3.5G is 1.8Mb/s and up why don't you check your facts.
The faster the speed, the quicker the battery drains an inescapable fact of phone networks.

btw macfixit.com offers a do it yourself battery replacement kit with tools and instructions for $50.

rogers go's all out
rogers is the only company in N.A that has the full 3g and 3.5g 27 companies do it in the world
and for all the phones that support 3.5g
NAM automatically change to 3.5g speed

Yeah, and what are you going to do when that battery no longer holds a charge? Crack open your iphone (and risk damaging it) or pay the fee and let Apple replace it for you?

so half of canada is using just Data on there iphone cause it's too expensive to own both voice and data"
No, you're wrong 'bro'. I thought I was clear in my previous post, but perhaps not. I am in the US. In the US AT&T requires that you get the data plan with the 3G iphone. There is no way around that. It's no longer 'optional' like it was with the 2G iphone. So while you guys (and gals) up in Canada my have the option, we here do not.

i dont have a screenshot application, so i cant upload the image of the 2 buttons. also, where shud i post?? all i can say that they are both of the same size.
can you tell me whether your proximity sensor is working as before. mine gets active only if the person on the other side picks up the call. also the screen takes time to switch off when i take my hand close to the sensor. it was working fine in v11. :(

btw i have that silence button too.. but only a single silence button on the screen!
if u cant see a reject button on screen go to settings-calling-call-reject call with a message - select this to NO!
hey can u post a pic or something if u can of your two calling buttons! i tried everything in vain! my active loudspeaker button is bigger than the other.. looks damn weird!
AK, 07 Mar 2009hey can u confirm this..
the secondary camera on 5800 gives a mirror image of the snapshot
... more1. actually, its the reverse. when you switch on the camera, it shows the mirror image, and when you take a snap, it captures the real image.
2. While calling both those buttons(in my unit) are of the same size. but i have a strange problem now. When i receive a call, there used to be a reject button on screen(in v11). now(in v20) there is a silence button, moreover it's inactive. Not a great deal as there already is a dedicated reject button(and one more silence button on screen which is active), but its a bit annoying.
Also, the font of the virtual keypad has increased and it looks dirty now. But there are some nice animations on the tags.

So it's a lot more than just a battery.
The standard iPhone supports sending a SMS to unlimited contacts, you don't need to do anything just keep adding them.
