Well, I must say that I have always liked Nokia XpressMusic phones. Well, today I went to a phone shop and saw Nokia 5220 XpressMusic. I asked my aprents and they said if I did well in the year-end examinations, they would buy it for me. I am excited and hope that I can do well.

Certainly the main difference is the audio qu... moreu r right.5130 is cheaper than 5220.in my country(india) 5130 costs Rs5400 and 5220 costs Rs7800-900.both this phones have almost same features.audio quality of 5130 is slightly better(i haven't tested it.but iam telling this after reading the review of 5130 by gsmarena).but because of its price nokia5130 is big hit.

I have changed it into every known format and I still have the same problem.

i bought a nokia 5220 2 months back and now i really repent buying it...every time i listen to music and remove the earphones and if i receive a call the phone keeps ringing for 15-20 minutes..iam unable to receive the call...none of the keys works at that time..finally i have to switch off the cell and restart it again to get it to normal....even the music its not that load...pls suggest me how to fix the problem
devi01, 24 Aug 2009I only want to know if I am the only one with this problems...
I got my Xpressmusic 4 month... moreHi,
update your phone to the latest firmware(if you dont knw how to, then ask your dealer to do it for you)...this shd solve most of your freez and hang problem.
Dont know why but its taking nokia long time to fix the hang and restart problem in 5220...they solved it with the very first firmware update on 5130.
abt videos not playing...
only two types of file formats will work, ie mp4 and 3gp...so make sure that the files you upload are in this format..else you will have to convert them using a video converter...
choose mp4 format for conversion...
also resolution shd be 320X240 or less...
preferable video codec is xvid and video bitrate around 250-300kbps...
Its like you said you can change the font color of date and time and that of service provider....for changing font color of time you will have to change theme or edit a current theme in S40 theme creator or carbide UI...
Your phn can also become slow if the memory card is too fragmented...defragment MMC or copy all file to pc, format card and then copy them back.
Hope this helps
