note: personally i use "nokia 5530 xpressmusic"
ive been using this phone for about 6 months now, to be honest with you there are many problems that ive encountered.
1.) battery is bad specially if you use wifi every time.
2.) when there are calls the phone automatically turns off, thats why you wont be answering calls without your earphone plugged. (because of the proximity sensor)
3.) related to number "2" you should use ear phone to answer the call
4.) always hang
5.) turns off & on by itself automatically.
6.) when using the internet and ovi store sometimes the internet closes by itself
7.) loose battery. you can hear your battery moving and when you remove battery cover battery falls easily
but of course there are also good things that i like about this phone:
1.) can watch youtube videos, no need to wait for buffering.
2.) can use wifi anytime anywhere
3.) sound and camera quality absolutely great
4.) many nice and usefull downloadable applications and games from (jetjar & ovi store)
5.) nice design
6.) cheap price
7.) symbian device
soon im planning to buy samsung corby wifi (s3650w/s3653w).
Ddr, 17 Jun 2010hi guyz m frm india n i juz bought a phone frm us . . . i updated ma s/w bt it is vV20.0.080... moreenter in telephone : *#0000# then press options then check for updates !! and it will automatically update!!!
It's stupid to ask but I can't change songs with my earphone button so anyone who can help me,Any one facing same problem?
i have found a bug in the latest SW actually.. when i type msgs, the phone wold suddenly erase the message i m typing.. Not quit annoying.. Really annoying. And when i browse the net, and scroll own to navigate webpage, it would keep going down, even whn i put the page up, after releasing touch. It would still keep going down.. And lastly, web pages would suddenly close while web browing. Ang touch response got slower whwn txting.. So annoying.. My little sistee got annoyed too becos when my aino arrives, my 5530 will be givwn to her. So sad :p and another one sometimes, when i use apps like blackboard , i see green lines ang they will suddnly disappear.. Like dead pixels.. hmm.. It will be gone on my hands soon anyway :D
Ive been wondering wether the video player can play mp4(h.264)??
I know that the flash player can handle it but its only used when on the internet.
The problem is that nearly all the videos that you can donload( not stream as those are not acailable or are of vry poor quality) are in that format.
I tried to use other players which support ,mkv,etc but not one could play the videos corectly.
If its just a matter of software, why nokia didnt implemnt it??

thanks a lot for d reply buddy . . .
i first downloaded NSU n den connected ma phone ... moreDear ddr,
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...
GS, 17 Jun 2010Hi Nuwan, i would like to know your opinion about the 5530's battery performance and how often... moreDear GS,
Being honest brother, one thing I hate about Nokia 5530 is, its battery performance... It's really really weak... With my excessive usage of Music Listening, it can't hold on more than a day...! So I have to charge it each and every day... (Normally I bring my charger almost everywhere I travel... Just in case...!)
It is OK to charge it even though battery is not completely finished... But I've read some people say, it's good to wait until it drains to the last and then charge it.. For lithium Iron batteries it's said that if we do such a charging cycle at least once a month then that's very good for the maintenance of the battery... But I don't know whether it has that much of a difference... Because Nokia manual doesn't say something like that..
Yeah.. Of course you can use it while charging.... I do that often...
To long last the battery...! What can I say...? Well.. Very briefly you can do the followings to increase the battery life...
1) Always turn off bluetooth when you don't use it
2) Turn off 'Wifi network scaning' when you don't use it (Wifi eats the battery...! If you use wifi often, please remember that...)
3) Reduce the Screen brightness to a minimum value
4) Close application at the background (that means 'Exit' them) if you don't use them anymore
5) Keep the Free RAM amount as large as possible (Use a software like 'RAMBlow' in order to increase the free RAM Space of your 5530)
6) Use a simple theme (sophisticated themes takes much battery)
7) Minimize the usage of 3rd party applications which drain battery faster (some sophisticated 3rd party software take large amount of RAM and would cause the battery to drain faster... For an example using '360ting' Music player I can only listen to 6 hours of Music started with full battery... But with default Nokia Music player I can go more than to 12 hours normally..)
8) Reduce the screen auto off time to a minimum
9) Remove key pad vibration
10) Remove notification light alerts of at least reduce the blinking time period
That is all I can remember at the moment... Hope this will help...
Nuwan, 14 Jun 2010Dear friends,
I'm sorry for the long delay, it's because I've got some problem with my inte... moreDear brother,
Thanks that ur back now!
So finally we got a new firmware n overall it is a nice one,and it is possible that the hacked is still there after updating.How about if my HeloOx2 is installed in the phone memory,is it still ok?I just found out recently that i installed it in phone memory while the rom patcher is in memory card.
Can i uninstall it and then install it again in the memory card?
How to back up the files before updating,what are the things that really need to be backed up?And i saw a back up thing in the memory card,can i use that also brother?
Thanking you in advance...

Hi Nuwan, i would like to know your opinion about the 5530's battery performance and how often you charge your 5530. Is it a good idea to charge it even though the battery's not completely finished?? Can it be used while charging? Please let me know the ways of making the battery last for as long as possible and what shortens the battery life. Thanks a lot! Also, keep up the good work in answering people's questions!
