On the second day since i bought this phone it just suddenly started to freeze almost every 2 minutes and so i had take the battery out and insert it again. I tried to reset the phone and it still didnt work. On the way to taking the phone back i tried formatting the memory card and finally it stopped freezing. So if u have a similiar problem try what worked for me: remove the card- check if the phone still hangs- if it stopped format the card on a different phone(you could also restore factory settings to make sure). Since then the phone has had no problems.
I suggest u not to go for the mobile nokia 5310 coz this mobile sucks. It has been a defective set from the time its been lounged. It has all sorts of problems like restarting and all unwanted things. I took my mobile to nokia authorized service center but they too can’t help me with it. I m repending for buying that set. So please don’t buy that model of nokia 5310.
I got my phone less than a month ago and I have this problem where the phone reboots by itself whenever someone sends me an SMS and it is starting to annoy me. I took it to a Nokia Care Center and they told me they'll have to update the system and reformat the memory card. it was somewhat disappointing. . . for those planning to buy one, better think twice. aside from its poor features, its just like an iPod. go buy an iPod instead.
I got a Nokia 5310 a month ago and I have no bad experience about this phone. The only thing that I didn't like about this phone is that if you're using the speaker, it is very low. I am a music lover, that's why I bought this phone. But once you use the headset, I'm very satisfied with the sound quality. Specially, if you're going to use an expensive earphone. And you can customize also the sound settings on this phone.
Ohh man after read the latest part of the comments, i become more and more confuse whether i should purchase this phone, i really like the outlooks of this phone, the slimness and the colour as well... Some of them said it suxx ( sorry for that ) and some of them just rated excellent, any one can ensure me whether to buy or not?
i did bought my gf a 5310 but im not happy coz she told me that the phone was always restarting i did go to nokia care but still the problem exist.
I bought one five days ago and so far I've been very happy with it. The speaker's maximum volume is not as loud as my old 6230, but oh man the quality is from another planet! The sound quality is even much better than in my (now retired) 512MB mp3 player. The 3,5mm jack is nice to have because the earphones included in the sales package aren't that good. The usability in this new S40 has been surprisingly good (can do copy pasting etc.) For me the light weight and slimness were much more important than a good camera in the phone so I chose 5310 rather than 5610. Now I just need to buy a good sports headset to take it with me jogging, snowboarding and so on. About the battery life I can't tell much yet. It lasted 3 days with the 1st charge and lots of music playing but according to my experience the battery reaches it's full capacity only after a couple of charges and dischagres. Now it's the second day since the 2nd charge and the indicator still shows full batt.
the worst phone i hav evr used........
speaker volume is very low..
camera clarity is nt gud......
5700 is 1000times better than tis phone.......
i bought mine about a week ago. i should've considered reading all the comments in the forums. didnt have any bad experience so far, but i must say that the sound speaker of this fone is not as good as my nokia 5300. i dont know how i should handle the situation if my fone will restart often due to firmware problem etc. updating the fone's firmware (if already available) will result in loss of messages, contacts, files, etc. if you'll be buying this fone, it's recommended that you get the fone from a reliable store and SHOULD have a nokia care warranty so that they will have your fone fixed or replaced if there is any factory defect (like firmware problem). you might as well consider buying nokia 6300 instead. it's cheaper although both doesnt have good quality speakers. also, it doesnt have a headset with mic. the headset included only have a tuner (for radio). awww. but i have to like it. no choice :-(
Sleek model .... a real surprise fom Nokia, very light and overall a good handset....battery backup could have been better.
Is the 850 frequency available in Canada?? All the phones on ebay have the 900 band.. Is 850 available? Thanks!
this phone looks really nice...and its very handy...does any alarm manager or multi alarm application works on this phone? thanks!!!
this phone is getting stuck
1) when you gets a missed call and suddenly you unlock the phone
2) when switching between yahoo contacts list
Now smape.com has just published a very positive review of this phone. So all the three reliable sites (mobile-review, gsmarena, smape) are loving it.
On the other hand there are too many owners reporting problems (restarting, bad speaker) to be ignored.
So what's going on?
Have all the people with problems bought a fake (counterfeit)?
Or maybe the bad units are coming from a different Nokia factory than the good ones?
Is this phone coming out with the 850mhz banding as indicated originally? That band is a must have for me...unfortunately. Thanks!
Hi.I bought Nokia 5310 on 25th Dec'07.Its been a week and I found that it switches off in between application.Sometimes when I am on a call.Can anyone tell me if I can get a replacement from the company.The ringing sound is also very low.I am really disappointed. Earlier I was using Nokia 6600 which I purchased 3 years ago. With Nokia 5310 I went to Symbian 40 series merely to get rid of the hanging prob Symian 60 series has.But now I am repenting for buying this and not gone for Sony Ericson.
nokia 5310 is really a great music phone, the thing is, the camera is quite blurry... anyway, its still a great phone to have.... i love mine!
looks- sexy,attractive 'bomb'.(10/10)
camera-2 MP (7/10)
sound-speaker's sounds toooooooo lowwwwwww but earphones sound is like ur listening from an apple i-pod i.e excellent.It also have 3.5mm jack so u can put headphones of ur choice without adapter.
Screen-Its crystal clear...excellent....16 million TFT.
