I have been using this phone for a few months. I havent experienced any of the problems being described here. No restarts or hangups whatsoever. I've been using it with all the firmware versions since 4.0 (except for the latest one which isnt available in my region). Its UI seems to be slightly faster than 5310xm. The battery life and camera are better as well. Its a joy to handle. I highly recommend it.

Anonymous, 27 May 2009wats v.6..?wat is ths 6.51 thngy? how cn i get it uploaded?? help plz!
battery backup is not upto the mark.call drops are a wee bit high.
i bouhgt this 5220 1300 307 937 on april 5 2009 somewhere he re in manila, it worked good for 3 days, then suddenly it hanged.
i brought it to nokia care center, i've waited for 5 long weeks for them to fix it.
Finally my lovely 5220 is shining back on my hand, after 24 hours of recharging the battery, it is not fully charged and died after 2 hours in idle mode. i brought it back to nokia..... after 2 weeks it is still not fixed...
this phone is just a crap..
it is not working well, it always malfunction.. it is a waste of money, I am from a poor country and buying handset like this needs a month hard work.
but nokia doens't care about it, they dont want to replace it and i don't know why.
I will never buy nokia phone anymore...
Hey guys, I just updated to v6.51 and it rocks! The best in audio quality since v4.00. No m0re bugs, re-starts or wat so ever. I love dis f0ne! Rock\m/awN!
I purchased this phone based on the appealing looks and mindblowing features. this little beauty was brought on september 12th 2008 and she disappointed my like never before, started facing problems right from the 2nd month of its purchase.
1) 2month of Purchase:- The speakers of the phone are damamged when it is basically used only for my rintones to be audiable and not for hearing any songs stored in the phone.
2) 2months 7 days :- The phone automatically switches off and restarts by itself and the settings are converted to factory settings.
3) 4th Month:- The phone starts hanging like its drunk the day.
4) 5th month:- unable to receive calls (very often) as the call receiving button does not work, and end up missing the call.
5) 6th month :- the Phone starts vibrating when I am still conversing over the phone when there is any msg received or call waiting ( which makes no sense)
6) 6 months 4weeks:- the Phone battery doesn't even last for 5 hrs.
7) 7th month and so on :- she has become a scrap to me :(
every 2 months I get her a visit to a repair store and pained myself within seeing her dismantled but unfortunately the very next week she is again back to her stubborn malfunctions.
but she is not the one to be discarded, I have requested for a replacement. But in vain I have lost trust on her functions....
I have also discussed with many of my collegues who have purchased the same model and face multiple other problems apart from the above mentioned....
I still would suggest for ppl who go by looks and not maoney value :(
i got it 3 months ago and i only had 1 problem with the sim but i got it fixed and now it is working. There is only one thing i hate bout it doesnt have flash wen u taking a picture

Check out this 5220-designed silicon-protection. Fits like a glove - I use it myself. With that wrapped around your phone its likely to survive even more punishment. ;-) The link leads to a swedish website, but you can e-mail them in english. The protection is branded "Capdase".
