here's how, go to settings>application manager>installed apps> highlight the app>tap options> choose suite settings>set on screen keyboard to OFF! i hope this one will help you
actually i'm craving for n5800 but i got n5233 instead, but im still quite satisfied with this phone. considering this is a S60 5th edition touch phone,its price is affordable and the features are awesome.. very responsive touch screen.the user interface is indeed intuitive, it's like from nokia's older non-touch symbian phones. the only downside and i hate to think much about this phone is that its sound volume when using the headphone is not as loud as my n7210 supernova, though the loudspeaker's sound quality is very okay. i love music, so superb sound quality is what im looking for on a phone. i installed opera mini 5 final build and set proxy settings for OM5, voila! internet on the go!
i have this little regeret after buying n5233 and after reading the specs of n5230 that i should have bought n5230 instead. with a little price difference i could have had a 3g and gps feature on my phone.
[deleted post]Then just give me a reason not to.... Your 5800 is still priced at 14k and the 5230 is priced at 7.5k. So that's a difference of 6.5k. For 6.5k, you can get a 5233. All have similar basic features. And for your info, 5233 had all the basic features like kinetic scrolling out of the box while you had to wait almost a year and two updates to get that. So 5230 and 5233 is indeed an improved variant of the 5800 though lacking in some features. 5800 is the first symbian touchscreen flagship of nokia and it has its shortcomings. Just think of your 5800 as a premium guinea pig which nokia used to improve upon the touch UI. All the improvements have later been ported directly to the subsequent devices that followed. My 5233 with its smoky grey metallic finish doesn't look cheap at all.. You paid a fortune to get your 5800 and a few months later nokia comes up with two damn cheap devices with almost similar specs. Yes i can understand your frusturation. Even i felt a bit envious when nokia suddenly dropped the prices of 5233 again to 6.4k. I paid 7.4k for it two months back. That doesn't make it a cheap phone. Yes it is cheap when it comes to price but when it comes to features it is as rich as the 5800.
i am planning to buy this in next 20 days. i am not sure about only one thing, as all those games which can only be played by specific key based phone, how i will play those in a touch phone.
plz reply its important as am gamer and software user i am sure about software but not for games.

to indieover, I'm gonna send you the Free INternet settings for 5230 (which walkman's phone can't handle Hahahahahahaha) via email. Enjoy free browsing and downloading with 3.5G connection in Smart.
walkman, 27 May 2010oh in case you dont know 5230 is not an xpress music phone thats why it sounds DULL even if yo... moreDon't be so ignorant mate.. just because this phone doesn't have the Xpress label doesn't make it a bad music phone. It is the insides that count. In case you are not aware, this phone uses the same toshiba DAC33 audio processor as the 5800. It does come with the same amplifier as the 5800 and it is also better tuned than 5800. Just check the audio test results of 5230 for proof. Its frequency response is almost flat throughout the entire audible range. The only other phone that manages to out perform is the iphone 3gs. It doesn't have the xpress music label because it doesn't come with expensive music accessories in order to bring the cost down. I do own a philips SHE9800. In case you are not aware, it is a premium fine tuned earphone with advanced acoustics. It is rated as the earphone with one of the best sound stages by audiophiles. It has a sound signature similar to full sized cans or headphones. Compared to my 5233 and my philips SHE9800, your expensive 5800 with its stock overhyped earphones are no match. Even the PMX200 that comes with it has a hard time catching up. I do agree that 5800 sounds a bit warm with EQ set to flat but 5230 is the more natural sounding among the two and the one with the better audio reproduction. You are just jealous because my 5233 is almost as good as your 5800. Apart from a few premium features and a bit of cosmetic changes, the 5230/5233 is in every way a 5800.
