Rapture_110, 23 Apr 2010Hi,
I Just bought this phone 2 days ago, actually i was using nokia 5233 before. So after c... moreThere shouldn't be any speed difference in GPRS/EDGE speed. Both have same GPRS/EDGE class technology. Probably, it might be due to network congestion.
BTW, I would say its your wise decision to opt for 5530. 5530 has much better sound and image quality compared to 5233 plus you get Wi-Fi in 5530.

I Just bought this phone 2 days ago, actually i was using nokia 5233 before. So after checking comments and features here on GSM Arena i decided to go for Nokia 5530 (Black and Red). I would like to ask Nuwan and Cyber shot i am a bit confused like have i downgraded from 5233 to 5530 because 5233 has bigger display and white light background. And also i am noticing slow surfing and downloading speed. I have v20 version on Nokia 5530. Also any suggestions what needs to be done with GPRS Speed..? Thanks in Advance Bro..

[deleted post]WOOO! ! ! the omnia lite, before buying my 5530. . I wanted to buy this baby. . . t runs winMo 6.5 plus it has a fester processor. . . 600mhz as opposed to 434 mhz. . . and most of all it's an Omnia (I am interested with Omnia's before due to the success it has bring) But I chose the 5530 (or faith has brought me into this) because the 5530 was way more compact , (Due to history of big and bulky phones 5700,n76 and k800 that left me baggy shorts and pants whatever no questioning) it had larger resolution, and it was s60. . as you can see both of my phones were symbian s60, I loved them easy to use ,fun to play with too. So I took the 5530. . . and one more thing the 5530 has the PINK variety my fave color! ! !
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2010What are SIS Applications??SIS applications are files that are used in symbian based products for example the s60 or even the symbian UIQ uses this type of application. . .
will i regret buying this phone?why?answer please.give me reasons why i should buy this.

So can I know... moreok ok 1st go to your setting folder then go to phone=>phone mgmt(management)=>then click device update=>click options=>then click "check for updates" (before you do this that you should be sure that your carrier supplies gprs or any internet connection like 3G, price depends on the carrier.Wi-fi can also be used here)=> then follow the instructions=> don't turn off your phone while it's updating it can damage your phone=> your good to go enjoy your latest firmware. . another method you can update it via computer just go to this link "http://www.nokia.com.ph/support/download-software/device-software-update" choose your phone model, download then install follow the instructions. . . then there. . .
to know if your device supports new firmware go to this other link "http://www.nokia.com.ph/support/download-software/device-software-update/can-i-update" then follow instructions then your done. . .

Contact your carrier or Nokia Care for replacement. Touch responsiveness is never a issue with this phone neither a malfunctioning of touch embedded buttons.
Worst phone I ever had! I've had it for 4 months and buttons already malfunction. Screen sometimes goes black, and the lock/unlock button is useless in this case. But the thing that bothers me the most is the touchscreen's responsiveness. It often fails to react to any input, like when I want to put it on mute, I press and press but nothing happens. It's sluggish as hell.
One thing I can't complain about is battery life, for a touchscreen phone, I usually get 5 or 6 days without charging.
Most phones I've had were from Nokia, and this one was a HUGE dissapointment.

So can I know how to acctually update the firmware.
[deleted post]hmm the w705. . I really love Sony Ericsson due to great phones that I have owned k800 and the G700. . the w705 a walkman slider, well I also love the 5530 due to the gorgeous 2.9 inch screen and the 3.5 mm jack plus I miss owning a Symbian s60 device (I used to have the 5700 and the n76). . while the w705 has the fast port rather than 3.5 mm audio jack , which I think is not a better option. . .(my SE device nightmare) Fast ports accessories like earphone adapters are not that durable. . . But as a music player I think that w705 is a better choice (put aside the fast port) but the w705 is now equipped with features like Shake control ,mega bass preset and the cool visual look of the player making it a great choice for musicians. . As a browser 5530 is better, the rule is bigger is better. The bigger screen and resolution is a big help (but browser makes web browsing so poor, due to crashes and bugs. But you can download the new opera browser or the cool new formware). .
Camera performance well both phones are equipped with 3.15 megapixel sensor. . . the 5530 wins in favor 'IF' you like close up shots. . but the w705 wins in favor 'IF' we talk about image quality. .
As a phone both phones are fine but 5530 wins in a slight margin due to the QWERTY keyboard. . but that's nothing to brag about. . the keypad of the w705 seems natural for me to use
