The problem was the glue that was used on the first phone. Since then they have improved the glue used. I also had one of the phones from the first batch and took it to Nokia to have it fixed its been fine ever since. Keypad has never come close to coming off its been wet and muddy more times than it been dry. Now I have faith in it again. Hope this helps
Sorry people, but this phone is tragic. The lag i'm experiencing on it is more than annoying, no sms accelerators help (and why should such apps are available officialy by nokia? they should fix it in a software upgrade, not by installing some applications that consume memory).. Looks and feels good, nice set of features too, but it's reliability is so poor.. Don't know about others, but mine is rubbish..
Well i belong to a lower class and i bought this mobile after a great saving of my 8 months of pocket money and salary and other savings but now i came to know that there is a very big problem of keypad can u plz plz plz tell me how could i fix it permanently without having any prolem or i have to sell this cell back having a deduction from market of about 2 to 3 thousand rupees... .as u know the resale value of this set.And how can i upgrade my sets firmware to latest version? Is it free? And Registerd ? ??
Plz do reply me back at ur earliest on my email address i.e. email@example.com and save me from this loss as i love this cell very much ...
Waiting for ur reply ..!!
you can check your phones firmware.
Press *#0000# on your Nokia 5500
ok people.. this is a nice phone.. BUT do NOT buy it coz its keypad will come out gradually while using it..and it become annoying
I have bought the N 5500 Sport Express, and it is a very reliable telephone.
To answer one of the questions, yes it is GPS compatible, but you need to buy the GPS module wich is not very expensive.
The camera makes magnificent pictures, and once you download them on your PC you can see the quality.
The sound are of good quality.
I bought the phone with the data cable included wich really is a very positive thing in my perspective.
The 3D motion sensor is a very cool thing esspecially if you are an active person.
I hope some of you agree with mystatement and for those who want to buy it, good luck, the phone is worth, in my oppinion.
Hi,for use GPS must have a portable module gps like ld-3w,price is around 110 usd,and also must have navigation program,is free to download from Nokia,names Smart2go,or also a free.is Nav4all,for problem whit keypad ruber also i buy a silicon case for nokia 3220,i make some holes for led light,microfon,for joystik,for earssound,and i put the phone in that siliconcase
I just heard that Nokia plan to launch the 6550 in November as there latest durable phone.
GSMARENA - Is it true that the 5500 is GPS capable? Could you verify this and update its features?
i want to buy 5500 sport will i buy i have 3230 plz tell me abt. that which is better..?
whether 3230 or 5500 ........?
i want to buy for following reasons :-
1)small in size
4)good sound quality
5)good internal memory
7)battery life according to nokia.....
plz. suggest that where i move to other or 5500 is best
the phone is quite nice but there is a great problem with the keypad being made my rubber. it came out very soon and i don't find the keypad available everywhere.........that's the greatest thing. others are fine i must say. i suggest the manufacturer to increase the screen size and the change in keypad.....
Battery life is a joke. The one I have lasts 22 hours on standby with no usage. What it would be like if I talk I really dont know.
Should have stuck with the 5140
some positives for the phone after having it since day 1 (about oct)
- keypad broke twice, last time was january. its been fine since
- loudspeaker broke about may. but i use it practically every day, listen to podcasts and music. its damn loud, by far the loudest i have ever heard on a phone and its great
- symbian apps
- walking metre. just so you know how far you walk when your out with your g/f
- durable. dropped it a couple of times (in splashes of water no drama)
my favourite phone. i can't imagine going back to a fragile flip, slide or a normal candybar. im waiting for the next one, as much as i want wifi, 3.2 mpx with autofocus, hsdpa ect, well they are secondary
