Arian, 19 Jun 2010Why should i hack my 5530XpressMusic?
Isn't it bad 4 the phone ?well... because you get to have most of the goodies (apps and games)without ever signing a single certificate. The "stock" unit doesn't have it all.. You have to Pimp your mobile to make it different from the rest. :)Never had to do a hard reset so far. The apps i've been enjoying so far:
SPB Mobile Shell 3.5.5
Fingerprint Scan Lock/Unlock
Mobile Suit (sort of the MSOffice Mobile Version)
Adobe Acrobat Reader
Full Symbian and Java Games
and lots more...
still waiting for the full version of Imelo Music Player and SPB Mobile Shell v5. (try checking out these apps and see what you've been missin')
Still thinking if HelloOx 2.03 mobile hack can handle it if I upgrade to firmware version 30.
Caila Ocampo, 19 Jun 2010how did my phone become fake if i bought it at the nokia store in glorietta.hi dear caila,
Maybe you should try first to update your firmware.
Sometimes it's a firmware thing that causes all your complaints.
5530's battery is really weak compared to 5800(a fact for the 5530's cheap price)
but try to put a plastic or paper fold in between the battery and the back cover.
also close any apps that are not in use. newest firmware offers up to 2 mb of free RAM
thanks to brother Nuwan for all this info.
Nuwan, 19 Jun 2010Dear igo, I checked my 5530 (Updated to the latest firmware V 30) for the 'So called Bugs' ... morewell i would agree with you, maybe yeah, but its realy annoying though, i just updated through my phone actually. :)))
Nuwan, 19 Jun 2010Dear Chester cheta, Honestly speaking Nokia 5800 Xpress Music volume is louder than Nokia 5... morehey nuwan well i care about the quality but i just the volume is good enough that i can hear it in street and stuff :) , so if a head phone will be good then i will go with the 5530 :) .,thanks very much dude :)
Chester cheta, 18 Jun 2010I heard the the nokia 5800 xpress music sound volume is low , so is the volue me of 5530 is lo... moreDear Chester cheta,
Honestly speaking Nokia 5800 Xpress Music volume is louder than Nokia 5530 Xpress Music volume... So if you think even 5800 volume is low, then 5530 volume will be lower to you...! So if you concern about sound volume rather than the Music Quality, then Nokia 5530 is not a very good choice for you... Try a mobile like Nokia 5220 which gives very very loud sound output through its 3.5 mm jack..
But, if you concern about Music Quality over volume, then Nokia 5530 rocks...! With a very good Headset you will be in heaven...! (you must buy one separately because default headset is not so good...)
Caila Ocampo, 18 Jun 2010note: personally i use "nokia 5530 xpressmusic"
ive been using this phone for abo... moreDear Caila Ocampo,
I am unable to agree with most of the problems you've mentioned... But still I do agree with 1st problem...! And the last problem also has a background... But the rest is unacceptable...
I think the course of all those problems (2, 3, 4, 5 & 6) is simple... You don't have the latest firmware in your mobile... If you update the firmware, then I bet you will regret of publishing above 5 problems...! (But problem No 1 will still be there...! and Problem 7 can be fixed by a piece of paper...!)
Please update your mobile and then comment...
igo, 18 Jun 2010i have found a bug in the latest SW actually.. when i type msgs, the phone wold suddenly eras... moreDear igo,
I checked my 5530 (Updated to the latest firmware V 30) for the 'So called Bugs' of yours... But didn't find any of them in my mobile...!
So I really can't agree with your comments... May be the problem is with your mobile... May be your mobile hasn't been updated properly.. may be updating procedure has been interrupted or something... Going to the Nearest Nokia care center will be the solution for you...
And still, V 30 Rocks for me... No problem at all... I'm waiting for my mobile to 'hang' or 'restart'....! Greatest firmware version ever...
hi nuwan, 18 Jun 2010i hav seem tat u hav ben a lot helpful to most of dem hea n also d readers// / /
cn u plz h... moreDear brother (who asked 'hi nuwan'),
1) If you're really new to the Symbian world, then 'hacking' would be complicated to you... I suggest you to read some more about Symbian (You can use mobile forums and of course 'Google' as always...) and then you may decide whether to hack or not.. (Hacking is simple.. But it needs your confidence and some knowledge about what you're doing... Otherwise you won't get anything I say even though I describe it here...)
2) No... I'm sorry to tell you.. You can't get Smileys in Nokia Symbian Smart phones.. It's very very strange why Nokia did such a thing for their expensive smart mobiles...! But I've tried every possible way but couldn't solve this matter so far... (There are partial solutions via 3rd party software... But none of them worked just the way I want...) So it's better you get used without smileys..
3) Updating 5530 to the newest is not available for every phone...! I know that is ridiculous but it's true... Actually I have given the answer to your question already... (to another friend..) Here is that answer...:
I'm sorry about the problem of yours... Nokia has country based restrictions when updating their firmware... What you've done it correct.. (Checking the no behind the battery and search for updates...) So if it's been mentioned that the newest firmware available for your mobile is V 20 then there's no easy way of installing V 30 in your mobile...
There is of course a difficult way...!
There are software which change the code of the phone software based.. and that will enable for you to update the firmware... But if you're OK with V 20 which is actually a fairly stable firmware version, I don't recommend you to use any software to change your phone's code and update to the latest... Because it MIGHT damage the phone.. (and I have never tried such a thing by myself... So I can not guarantee you its success anyway...) However few of my friends, who had the same problem of yours, and who were desperate to have the latest firmware, did try that way and were successful to do it without any problem...
Please google it and you'll come to know more about that...
i updated it now arabic not dissapear but becomes alittle slower thanx nokia for arabic
I've encountered some serious problems with my 5530. The application bar doesn't show on my home screen anymore. If you tap the space were it supposed to be it will be highlighted but no pop up comes up. Also, The dialer and contact buttons on the home screen don't work anymore. I don't know if an update to v30will fix the problem(because i still use the v11 firmware version). Please i need some advice pertaining to this issue.
Nuwan, 16 Jun 2010Dear Aji, Almost all the applications support to Nokia 5800 support to 5530 too... (There c... morePls help me... i herd that 5800 is having multiple problems like hang and auto restart.. is it true??
Confused, 19 Jun 2010I'm going to buy a new phone tomorrow. I still can't decide if I want the Nokia 5530 or the Sa... moreI was in similar situation a month ago and I went for 5530 because of it's Resolution and Smartphone features. Corby pro has 3g so, that should be a major factor but If you don't plan to use 3g in near future than 5530 is far better choice.
I'm going to buy a new phone tomorrow. I still can't decide if I want the Nokia 5530 or the Samsung Corby Pro. Grrr!
Samsung Corby Pro:
1. I love the qwerty pad.
2. Bigger screen to look at because of the qwerty pad.
3. Slim and handy.
4. Doesn't have a flash.
4. Slider phone.
5. Too bad the front camera doesn't take photo.
6. Expensive to get fixed.
1. Bigger screen than the Samsung Corby Pro.
2. User friendly.
3. Has a flash while Samsung Corby Pro doesn't.
4. Too bad the front camera doesn't take photo.
5. Cheaper to get fixed.
I just couldn't resist the temptation!i updated my phone's firmware. It's my first tym i updated mine so i've got lots of doubt but i'm super satisfied with the new firmware!!! thanks alot nokia!!!
