How are you buddy?
As I said I'm waiting till December for me to buy this phone. as ofcourse a special gift for my self but i guess im getting this one in no time at all.
im really-really excited to go get my phone.
anyway, my question is this.
What should i check in the phone before buying it. i mean how will i know im getting the right firmware.(and what does it look like in the screen to be exact?) one more thing what is the latest or the best if not the latest firmware available?
is there a way that i will know the manufacturing date of the phone?or it doesn't matter if the phone is made this year or even if it's form last year's?
hear from you soon.
Sad to know that somebody is using your name for his own satisfaction...

I will be happy if you can take me through a step by step process for the soft reset etc so that I can try those...hope you dont mind...Thanks

Yes... 5230 has a better battery (1320 mAh) than 5530 (1000 mAh)... (Obviously battery life should be better in 5230...)
5530 doesn't have a heating problem brother...! For an example I took two continuous calls, first one 1 & 1/2 hours and Second one 45 minutes.. (Similar to a 2 & 1/4 hours call...) But I didn't experience such a heating problem... (However I use my headset for long conversations...)
I will definitely suggest you to go for 5530 Xpress Music... However that's my personal opinion... I will recommend you to do this... Go to the nearest phone shop and hold the both phones in your hand... If you do this... then you will decide on the spot that you better go with 5530... Because 5530 looks so sexy... Build quality also way better than 5230.. Please read the comment of our friend "NANDA KISHORE". I totally agree with him regarding the look and feel of the Nokia 5530 Xpress Music...
Good luck brother...

Glad to know that most of your problems have been solved after the hard reset... However the problem regarding the Camera, I still don't understand why it happens.. And I don't get how a video recording for 30 minutes could eat battery that much...! That's really strange but I don't see any solution honestly speaking...
Why don't you go to a Nokia care center and show them the problem...? Most of the time, they will provide you a brand new replacement...

I think you better try a soft reset your mobile first and then if it doesn't work, try a hard reset... Please back up all your private data (only private data.. Not the settings and things like that...) and format the memory card before the hard reset..
Immediately after the hard reset before you install any third party application, update your firmware to the latest version... (If you're afraid to do so, you can always go to a Nokia care center for that...) Then I think your problem will be solved...
Millions people were waiting for this phone to release in india but only hundreds were purchased becoz its cost is higher to 4000rs compare to samsung and lg which has more feature then this mobile samsung lindy 8000rs wifi 3.2 cam and 3g dual cam,lg pep 6000rs 3.2 cam xlnt widget,Nokia wake up drop its price or you will have to drop these mobiles in indian ocean,
Can anybody help me with this problem with my NokiaXpress 5530 Please!!!
I am having difficulty with the 'dialer' and 'end call' keys on the phone, they do not work. For me to dial I have to press 'menu' key then press the dial key in order to get the dialer to make a call. Further, the shortcuts on the home screen do not show up and the 'dialer' and 'contacts' on the home screen do not work either. I press them and nothing happens. I have installed and reinstalled the latest device software and phone software updates etc and nothing has changed. What else can I do?
Nuwan, 22 Mar 2010Dear FlatlandGeek,
No... As far as I can think this is not a factory defect... I can think ... moreDear Nuwan,
What I mean about my firmware is when i bought it the firmware is already V20.0.080.But I've try a hard reset and formatting the memory yesterday. The Sound of the games are now working but still when it comes to camera and video it still hangs but doesn't restart anymore.the video and camera still go all black and after reseting,it will go back to normal again.But there's something fishy i've noticed in my phone whenever my camera or video mode hangs and reset it, I've notice the battery status bar are lessened ex:my battery is fully charged (7bars) and I use my camera or video for about 30mins. After i saved the videos and try using my video mode again, the screen will all go to black and I need to restart it to go back to normal, and when i look on the battery bars it lessened to 5 or 4 bars. I think the battery and hanging of my phone is related coz it never hangs when my battery is fully charged. Thank You Again Nuwan. Hard Reset really helps me esp.about the game sounds.but there's still a problem about the video and camera.

Thankx nuwan and cyber shot..for ur valuable suggestions.plz tell which one 5530 or 5230 has a good battery life?and i have also heard that 5530 have heating problem??phone's get hot in long usage is that true? I m getting both the handsets at same price in india..which one should i go for?plz suggest.
After Holding 5530 and 5800, what i felt is 5530 had a great Build Quality while holding, and also the Touch Screen and Touch Responsive is Really Much Better in 5530 than 5800(with firmware V40).
Except than 5800 has some more features like 3G,GPS,Front Camera,3.2" Screen, a longer Battery Life; 5530 really Wins over 5800 in design and Build Quality.
I Thought to exchange my new 5530 for 5800, but after holding 5800, i felt i was really Wrong.
Nokia 5530 Really ROCKS!!!
Because of the High Resolution, u even wont notice that much difference while watching videos on 5530 despite of its 2.9"Screen
does anybody know how i can use my 5530XM as a webcam? is there an app out there that can do that.
thanks for the support and answers.

thanks, i guess both suites are really the same, the only difference is the ovi store in the ovi suite. the rest are all the same features.
i agree with nuwan, based on your requirements, just go for a 5530XM. go to a mobile store, and hold both the 5530XM and 5230 in your hands. you will immediately notice the difference in finish, the stainless steel finish of the 5530 is a winner. and since your a heavy internet user, the 5530 has wifi.
