I was very quickly disappointed on its reliability.
I had to change phones twice.
first for some reason the microphone stoped working after 3 days. 2nd it would not recognise my chip card after 2 days.
I decided to take another mobile phone wiht my provider.
got this phone goin in a month now.(Black)Great phone real nice features,i upgraded to a 1Gb memcard. Camera quality good,no problems with Keypad(Knock on wood). the only thing is, Dispite its said to be bump Proof,It fell once and got an ugly Dent on the Metal frame(so called Stainless steel) in front,got real dissapointed.and i got a freeze error, and restarted it and works like a charm.the Music player is loud. and the best part i like is its Size- really small and neat.i give it a 4/5
I have it from 6months.to many problems-is not waterproof,shokproof and what else they say.front pannel and buttons is made ow rubber who after 1monts is clue out from body-I try several times to clue but result is same.at the back side of the phone cover for battery and sim crd too was broken-i stich it whit skoth tape.this model is extremly fragile.the camera is bad at low lite,video is bad too.simbian 9.1 is ok,but display is to small and is inposible to enjoi to use like a video player.I"ll buy new cover complette and will sell them/gues how much cost 30$/.MADPANAS
The 5500 is faster than the N70 or N72 because the 5500 uses Symbian S60 3rd Edition. N70 and N72 use the older 2nd Edition.
hey got this phone recently,its a great phone ya,keypad peeling off issue did not affect though,but the screen is small~wish the screen could have been alot bigger
All u guys r crazy...this is the best phone u can get in this price....this is the fastest symbian i have ever seen...just use it for 1 week u will never leave it......also display is so clear ....even n70 and 72 does not catch up with 5500....pls stop guys...if u dont like this phone...then u have to spend 25k+...bye
i think the designer of this model sucks.. specially the keypad.... how come they just put glue to stick the keypad with the body.. even though you replace the new keypad, when the glue gets hot, the glue will melt and unstick the keypad again, then you have to replace the keypad over and over again. i just trade-in my nokia 5500 to other phone model this morning.. so disappointed
im thinking of buying this phone or the Sony Ericsson W710i.. The only thing keeping me with the W710i is the many users having problems with the keypad. Is it that bad? Is there anyway of preventing it? Or fixing it by yourself?
NOkia 5500 has been publically explored to be a poor quality mobile by China Central TV in 15th March, 2007. In it's show, Nokia's aftersales services is quite poor, at least we could discribe it as dissatisfactory. Why Nokia always releases a lots poor designed mobile, such as 3250,5500,etc.?
This Phone's keypad is too bad and gets peeled off.The battery backup is too low. Not Worth 2 buy it...But really good in it's features
THIS nokia 5500 sport is so real....
the only problem is that it does not have a cd player built in, nor does it have a minidisc player, come on nokia......
It night be better if it had a 10mega pix camera and night vision and infra red vision, also a dvd recorder just for the movies, lol.
its only a phone, lol @ some peoples minds, blah blah blah.
and as for low signal well thats your operators fault not the phone.
I have5500 from 6month.camera and video is good at day lite,at nigth-better dont make a pictures.the loudspeaker is good,audio player too.for video is better to instal some avi player.BAD side of the5500 is that his panel is broken day by day on my eyes-the rubber must be clue evry wheek .this is shame for nokia-waterproof,shokproof-helou nokia the phone for 6mths is damaged totaly.I never see at my life so weak cover,panel like this.this was my first and my last nokia in my live.the services here in europe is fool of reklamation of this phone.If somebody of smart ass from finland read this I"ll say hem "minnula rappuli nokia"-it means I have womit from nokia.
>nice cam for outdoor shots... but no flash for indoor shots... grrrr.....!!!!
>they shouldve integrated a better camera.. a 3.2MP cam could be better...
>bad idea for keypad.... it strips off!!!and absorbs dust...making the white print grey waaaaaaaa....
>low battery performance... since they intergrated an MP3 player, nokia shouldve thought of a high-performance battery too.. tsk tsk!!
>i installed a free game from the web... it worked...but whenever im done playing, the display of the phone is affected. kinda scratchy and slow response to my commands...
>very weak in getting a signal... this should be an outdoor phone!!! nokia, why like this?
i saved so get this phone and now... i wish i got somthin else instead...
i wouldve saved more and got a k800i
think twice before getting one...
Just got this for the sports bit really. I wouldn't use this on full time, I shall stick with my S.E. K800i which is far better. Keys are a bit stiff, but I like the demos and the tutorial bits as well. Cute fone though.
i had this phone 4 a munth key pad still fine
not peeling but the only problems are 1 batery life about a day (i sms alot about 250 a day)but a charg can fix that 2 the the hands free set is junk to listen music or make phone calls with it. ps i will get an mp3 player soon use my phones hand free set but the phone is still gr8 no big problems with it but i love it cos it is gr8 phone cos it small light good looks hard core featcher and strong as a brick use a nokia N70 soft were
I have had MY NOKIA 5500 SPORT since 04 october 2006, and my buttons are not falling OFF.
sO YUO ARE WRONG dey, I WONT BE CRYING, rather laughing @ U.
Hi. I'm not sure by what you said receiving programs from other phones. But it can receive and install program (receive *.sis, or *.jar) from other phones. I've been using this phone since September last year. Other than the keypad peeled off two months after I got it, I have no problem at all. I got the keypad replaced for free recently (mid February) and so far so good. =)
