i have too a 5310 since past 15 days. it's about time to nokia announce any information about 5310 problems and even make a recall as cars brand usually do. i've e-mail nokia and they told me to go to a service care, unfortunately service care doesn't have any kind of fix (hardware or firmaware). it's a shame to nokia. since five years my mobiles were sonyericsson and zero problems. lack of luck choosing this phone.
hey there is a update available for 5610 on nokia's official site,but not for 5310!!!
i wonder why :(
go to this link
you probably should also look at the Nokia 5610 whihc is a good phone. Cam's great 3.2MP and the sound is excellent. The E51 is another matter- its a very classy business phone. got most of what the 5610 has but the cam is not so good.Both are abt the same price with e51 being a tad cheaper.

Please GSMArena review this phone as as possible, please, I want to buy one here in Brazil.

Nokia Variant 00.00
following tests are done:
1. missed calls (with locked keypad/without)
2. playing .mp3 files whole day long
3. receiving sms while calling
4. getting calls while playing .mp3
5. camera, video
NO RESTARTING PROBLEM WHATSOEVER.
for all those who have complained about low ringtone volume issues ... i guess i could be of some use to you ...
pls chk for this feature in your "profiles"
you might have something called "outdoor" if you select your profile as outdoor you will have the loudest ringtone level ...
my 3110C had this issue & i fixed it like that ... :)
hope my info was useful to u all
and if you want to ask any further questions for solving the problem of freezing of 5310, feel free to contact me at:
whizvp at yahoo.co.in (replace at with @)
nd moreover i've also solved the mystery of the freezing due to a missed call...if ur keypad is unlocked and you get a missed call, the phone wont freeze. but if the keypad is locked, after the call gets missed, the phone gets freezed on the screen when the notification "keypad locked" is shown.....so all these are just software bugs, which i hope(sincerely do) that the nokia ppl will resolve when they release the next software update
hey ppl i've already posted solution to the hanging problem during music playback...its just a software bug...ther is a problem in the mp3 decoder plugin of the music player onboard 5310....if u play eAAC+ files then it'll play like a breeze.....i know cuz i'm using that format since last 2 weeks....i've loaded 180-200 songs on my mem card nd it works gr8....the sound output in headphones is excellent...tho i agree the loudspeaker is a bit on the lower side
there's a latest firmware version 3.63! but nokia updater can't detect my phone! wtf!
Actually this phone is nice, especially with the design and feature of this handset BUT there's one big issue- phone fReEzE during music playback. Several times in a day gosh! Although the music quality is good (If equipped with a good headphone) but can't really enjoy this feature due to the issue that mentioned above. Hope the latest firmware can solve this problem.
bought the phone, it started hanging. Nokia replaced it with a brand new one. The second one too is giving the same probs!
I want my money back!
Save yourself the headache don't buy this piece of crap!
HOTSWAP means you can remove the mem card when the phone is on. DAC 33 is a digital audio dedicated chip which nokia says it has on this phone.
Can not subscribe to previous opinions. I converted all mp3 files to acc and also into m4a (with only 94 bit). The phone still crashes and reboots whenever it likes: using mp3 files it rebooted almost after every second song, now with m4a files it reboots twice in an hour if not touched and only used for playing music. And by the way, some here recommand to install alternative player, the KD music player. Well I finally found one and could install it, it is very slow in reading in the music library, its menu is not good and not easy to understand, you cannot use Nokia s keys on the phone, only softkeys available, AND guess... it still crashes every hour 1 or 2 times!
I think Nokia has a serious problem there and I guess, they will not solve it by new firmware, instead of this, they will just bring out quickly the next not readily developed Nokia phone modell...
I have both, Sony-Ericssons W880i and the Nokia,I really love the Nokia coz it has a better menu and better keys and to use for emails is really fine compared to the SE, but the SE can play music... with no reboots, just play...
I read a statement of the general manager of Nokia, he would like to see the phone as a "music player with phone functionality and not only as phone with music player".
Well, sounds fine.
Nokia, I am aready satisfied with "just" a phone with music player, as long as it really can play music!
