first of all its a good phone.
as i m a new user of nokia 5500 some questions i have to ask u ppl.
can v change its casing without complications specially seal should not b affected.
plz write me a link from where i can get pcsuite,gmes,themes etc.
for me its 9,5/10
its not 10/10 coz im having a weird mms problem... sometimes he sends, sometimes he doesnt... but im not having the keypad problem.. it past 1.5years since i have this problem. and never went out, i never glued it.. this mobile ROCKS!! a MUST BUY for symbian s60v3 and small mobile lovers ( like me :D )
i repeat.. MUST BUY :)
i have 3 phone of the nokia 5500.
2 have a problem after sometime it got no signal at all.
you have to take off the battery for few day and plug in.
I bring to nokia and they return me a few day saying no problem,after a few day something similar happen again.
So beware of this product
wonder full phone 3 in 1 phone- music sport. and ever smolliest form nokia thanks .
this is the best phone I have ever had. it is splash resistant but don't put it in the washing machine, it won't work after that. Obviously a mistake and I am devastated about it. Definitely going to replace it with the same model.
Yo guys! I think this is da best and worst phone ever made! I hate da keypads. They faded after 1 month. But the sports option is very groovy!!! It has a good battery life and da camera is awesome. Overall rating out of ten? 7. something!!!!
Hey great phone overall with the worst keypad ever built. Using it for nearly 1.5 years now, had to change the keypad twice. Its got everything except WiFi.
I bought this phone in April08 and after 1 month keypad came out.I took this phone to nokia care center on 5th july but tll today 25th july they are not able to give phone back still they are asking time line till 8th Aug.This is really pathatic service from Nokia.
this is the worst nokia i have ever owned.functions to complicated,i wish i didnot drop my old 5140 out the window.
3D motion sensor is accelerometer sensor tilt and stuff like that go to symbian-freak.com U`ll find games and app using the accelerometer it can be used as gamepad for PC but I think only N95 is able to do this.
and search youtube for n95 accelerometer it can be used for scrolling thru the menu too changing songs etc,etc,etc
Carl, 29 Jun 2008can anyone tell me what the 3D motion sensor is for?3D motion sensor chip embedded in the phone mainly (only?) seem to be used for the excercise applications, like keeping track of how many steps you have taken so far during a day.
This sensor should also be very useful in certain games, assuming of course that there are appropriate APIs available for 3rd party developers.
I hope they release the next durable phone soon. I’m thinking about getting the SE C702
People have written below that nokia found a solution to the keypad problem and the new keypads dont peel off or anything...
Is it true. Where did nokia announce that they have a solution ?(paste link please)
This is so saddening.
Is there any permanent solution to the keypad problem ?
Its really irritating to give your phone for servicing every month.
But i really dont want a plastic cover for a phone thats water resistant also!
well, like i said, they replaced mine for free... but it peeled off again and just happened a few days after the warranty is over.
i just superglued it back on...
When i gave it they just glued it back and gave it.
It was free but still sad.
i wanted the peeling off paint on direction pad to be fixed too... :(
