lllllllllll, 19 Mar 2010hey nuwan bro!!!
whts up?? how u doing?? n yah its been like one month si... moreDear lllllllllll,
I'm sorry for the trouble brother... I can see how much you're frustrated...
Actually with the previous firmware versions (Previous Firmware version means any firmware which is lower than the latest one that is 20.0.80 if I remember it correctly...) the things you've described could happen... I used this mobile only for several days with the old firmware and it always hanged and automatically restarted during that time... (May be twice a day it happened...) In your case, you only faced it twice a month, that's because you're not a hard core user of the mobile.. You only use the mobile for listening music and watching videos except for calling and SMSing... But I did so many things so my mobile hanged often.. Then I installed newest firmware and now it's working fine for several months... So far so great... (Not to mention that I'm a hard core Music listener and I do so many experimental software installations risking everything and so far phone is working like a charm...!)
So as far as I can think, the problem is with the old firmware you have in your mobile... You better update the firmware as soon as possible...
(When this mobile switched off, sometimes all the recent data get deleted... Though it's weird, it happens sometimes because we sometimes have to remove the battery in order to make it start...) Sometimes it keeps the memory but sometimes it looses all the recent data.. (I don't think it has anything to do with firmware)
Your second paragraph is not really clear for me... Can you please describe it bit clearer...? You've asked 'y the way why do we need to upload softwares ??' but I didn't get what you meant... Do you mean why do we need to install applications...? Right..? If it's that what you meant then this is my very simple answer... "By installing 3rd party software, we can achieve numerous things and you'll not even believe how many things can be done using this small device... It'll be very like your Computer after you've installed software in it.."
Please have a look at below list of applications... And you decide whether they are not useful or useful...
Here is a MUST HAVE application list for Nokia 5530 Xpress Music.
1) Google Maps (Just like Google earth on your PC)
2) Y-Browser (File manager software, but way better than the default one... You can go in to hidden system files too)
3) PowerMP3 (Good Music player)
4) Resco Photo Viewer (Photo browsing, Photo editing software like ACDSee in your PC)
5) Photo browser (Photo browsing software with a very cool 3D like interface)
6) Quickoffice (Can Open, edit Office documents like Word, excel & power point.. Even Microsoft Office 2007 files can be edited using the new version of quickoffice mobile.)
7) Adobe PDF reader
8) Paint pad (Picture drawing tool)
9) Opera mobile (Very good web browser)
10) Youtube (You can view even high quality youtube videos directly from this software without any problem.)
11) Fring (VOIP calls, Video chat via Skype, Facebook, yahoo messenger, google talk etc chatting...)
12) Bright light (Use your mobile as a torch)
13) PhoNetinfo (Gives the System information of your mobile)
14) Kaspersky Anti Virus (Protect your mobile from virus, Spams etc.. Block unwanted calls, firewall also available)
15) JbakTaskman (Very good task manager like software)
16) RAMBlow (Memory cleanup tool)
17) Free i-SMS (Threaded SMS view just like in Apple i-phone)
18) SymSMB (You can connect to any network via Wifi and you can share a folder in your mobile as well..)
19) VMenu (Menu view just like in Apple i-Phone with kinetic scrolling..)
And much much more... (There are hundreds of them...) You will come to know if you really need your mobile to be a small wonder...! (Which will give your friends huge surprises...!)
If you want to see screen shots of above applications please click below links (which will direct you to my facebook account photo albums..) and you'll be surprised...! (And I bet you'll not leave me alone... I want this... and I want that etc...!)
OK.. as I said before you better thank the phone because it has worked fine for 1 month with the old firmware... (It's really strange why...) May be because you're not pushing the mobile to hard works as rest of us do... Whatever it is, I can definitely say, listening music or watching videos is not the cause for your trouble... It's the old firmware... Update your firmware and everything will be fine...
Good luck brother...

Nokia 5530 has speaker phone facility... Who told you it doesn't....?
It's up to you to decide whether to go for 5800 or for 5530 because it's totally depending upon your preference...
5800 is more feature rich but 5530 more stylish...
Go for what is more important to you...

Anonymous, 19 Mar 2010Hello everyone-my relative recently got ths phone-and he says that the phone hangs a lot, keep... moreDear friend,
Tell your friend (who's sick and tired regarding often hangings...) to update the firmware of his mobile... Then everything will be just fine...
Now I'm using this mobile for few months with the latest firmware, and it very rarely hangs.. That also due to my own experimental software installations etc... very reliable phone... I love the experience with this so far... and have no idea of replacing it to a new one sooner... However this is my personal opinion... You better wait for bad comments too...
Hello everyone-my relative recently got ths phone-and he says that the phone hangs a lot, keeps ringing even after the caller has disconnected and in short has a lot of problems to the extent of which he's considering selling the phone.
I liked 5530 a lot in the very first look and am considering buying it.
could u please tell me if you guys have been having any problems with the model? or if u have heard anything?
Thanks a lot! :)
bastigutz, 17 Mar 2010Dear Nuwan,
Is it safe to update your firmware?
Cause im planning to.u can update firmware through mobile itself. press *#0000# then from option go to check for update. and install the update. i've done that yesterday and after update i've not find any problem yet.
i've tried to update through NSU using pc but after update my phone did not start at all and i'd to get replaced from Nokia Care. then i tried to update form mobile itself. there is update option on application menu but it did not work. then i tried this method using *#0000#. at first it says server error(something like that) but on second time it ask me to download the upload and it works fine. hope it will also help u.
mina, 18 Mar 2010nuwan,
which is the best antivirus for this fone?
thanks! Dear mina,
I only have tried Kaspersky Mobile Anti virus (version 8) and it works fine for me... I like it due to following matters.
1) Though it has real time protection, it doesn't slow down the mobile
2) Updates are regular and reliable
3) Built in firewall available and you can customize the strength of the firewall
4) Custom scan modes available (Full scan, memory scan etc..)
5) Anti Spam - Black list/white list of contacts.. (You can either block or allow calls)
6) Stealth SMS facility (if you lost your mobile, it can be locked and you can delete all your private data using a simple SMS)
7) SMS watch, SMS block, Parental control etc...
If you find above facts are reasonable enough, then you can go for Kaspersky mobile Anti Virus... (I have to admit that it's bit expensive for me... So I'm not using a paid version... I downloaded a cracked one from www.gsmarena.com and it works just fine...)
Ruben, 18 Mar 2010Can anyone tell me if i can change the ear phone contained in the nokia 5530 box (in pack) wit... moreDear Ruben,
Though I haven't tried it, I think it will support... (The headset coming with N97 or Nokia 5630 Xpress Mesic should work with this handset too...)
However I can't confirm this as I haven't really tried it.. Anyone who've tried it, please tell us whether it's compatible or not...
Can anyone tell me if i can change the ear phone contained in the nokia 5530 box (in pack) with the one having the next, previous, etc. function. Because the box contains simple ear phone and i want to change it. I love music so it is a must have facility for me. Will it be compatiable.

you r welcome brother. i have learnt a lot from u bro and it is a pleasure for me to help u.

mohsin rais, 18 Mar 2010hey to all..
i m using 5530.. big prob i am having is that my some of the applications r not ... moreDear mohsin rais,
Connect your mobile to the computer through the Data cable and use Nokia OVI application installer in order to install/uninstall applications... (It'll take time to load all the list of applications in your mobile.. If there are many..) Be patient and then you can uninstall what you want to remove...
One more way though... You can go to the menu and where ever the unnecessary application shortcut is located... And click 'options' and select 'Organize'. Now select the one you want to uninstall and click again 'options' then select 'remove'.
That's easier than to use the default application uninstaller... But in that way you can't remove applications which are not in the menu... (such as plugins, themes etc..) In order to remove those you should use OVI installer...
Good luck brother...
jihanna, 18 Mar 2010hi!since this is a 2g phone,does this phone can have a yahoo messenger or windows live messeng... moreDear jihanna,
This mobile has 2G... Further more, it has EDGE that is 2.5 G to 2.75 G... (Though it doesn't have 3G, the data rates are very close between 2.75 G and 3G)
Please refer following table.
Basic GSM (2G) – 14.4Kbps
GPRS (2.5G) - 48Kbps
EDGE (2.75G) - 236Kbps [64Kbps upstream]
UMTS (3G) - 384Kbps [64Kbps upstream]
HSPA (3.5G/3G+) –- 14.4Mbps [5.8Mbps upstream]
HSPA+ (3.5G/3G+) –- 42Mbps [22Mbps upstream]
So anybody can see there's no such big difference between 2.75G (which we have as EDGE Class 32) and 3G..
You will be able to connect with yahoo messenger and/or windows live messenger using Edge (2.5-2.75G) connection without any problem... Use the third party software (freeware) 'Nimbuzz' or 'Fring'... Using 'Fring' you can even make video calls via skype... (However, you can see the other person, but he/she can't see you...)
However compared to 3.5G internet connectivity EDGE is way too slow.. But compared to 3G, it's very close...
