Hi Nuwan! I was kind of thinking whether to buy or not this Nokia 5530. I'm an uber music lover that's why i was thinking this phone would suit my taste. Now, i'm a bit wondering if this phone is hard to handle/use especially when it comes to touchscreen?
and if u can,, would you please tell me your views upon this phone, just to get a image about this phone. :]
thank you in advance :)
I installed google maps on my mobile(Nokia 5530 Xpress Music)
sometimes when open and click on my location it showing default UK location. and some times it shows the exact loaction where I am.
had any one faced this problem? if so please help me how to get out of this.
I downloaded the maps from the below link
Nuwan, 11 Mar 2010Dear terrence,
I'm sorry brother, yeah.. as you said that 'rapidshare thing' is not working... moreDear nuwan,
i guessed i hacked my phone. but the flipfont still having the same problem."this application is not support and cannot be install".
i tried many many times and even download the flipfont from other website, it still not works.
i on the both patch, check everythings, in the end still like that.
i'm kinda fed out already brother.
do you have any solution..?
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2010how do i delete or remove or uninstall the themes which i have downloaded to my fon? can someb... moreDear friend who asked about removing themes,
Go to menu - Settings - Application Manager - Installed apps
There scroll down and you'll see the themes you've installed... select the one you want to remove and click 'Options' and 'Uninstall/remove'
You might get the error message 'Low memory' or something... If so, connect the mobile to your computer through the data cable and use the OVI installer to remove the application/theme you want to remove... (That'll take sometimes to load if you've installed plenty of applications/themes... Don't worry about it...)
NANDA KISHORE, 11 Mar 2010And One MORE IMPORTANT THING:
The Battery Life is not Good. I used the phone Moderately like ... moreDear Nanda Kishore,
Oops... Your battery life is really terrible... Because for me it lasts more than that.. I did a test once in order to check my battery and the result was as follows... (As I recall...)
1) 2 hours of talking (calling)
2) 4 hours of Music
3) Half an hour of Wifi (internet browsing)
4) 20 SMS
With above usage, My phone remained 1 and half days... I personally think that's fair enough for a 1000 mAh battery in a 2.9" screen touch mobile...
So compared to my usage, your usage is really terrible... First check whether you have been given a Genuine Nokia battery... (I think you know how to check the 10 stars on the Nokia Sticker on the battery) and Reduce the screen brightness to a lower value.. (I've done so) Reduce the screen light on time... (mine is 15 seconds), Turn off wifi scanning (Search wifi manually when you want it...), Turn off bluetooth when you don't use it.., Turn off Touch screen vibration (If you don't want it..)
May be above simple tricks will be helpful...
NANDA KISHORE, 11 Mar 2010The LoudSpeaker Volume(For Music) is low when u Play the songs outside..Really very Low.Only u... moreDear Nanda Kishore,
I have to agree with your review... Though certain things have been exaggerated...!
Specially regarding camera, My feeling is, compared to the Apple iphone camera, 5530 camera is good enough... But compared to Sony Erricsson or Samsung mobile cameras Nokia cameras suck... That's true...
Second the In ear buds provided with the package is not so good as you said... I'm a music lover and I will not recommend these ear buds for any excellent Music experience... I'm telling you brother... You better buy a Senheizer (CX 500) or Creative (EP 830) (may be even sony) for listening to Real music in this mobile... You will never even turn to look at the default Nokia headset ever again...!
Nanda Kishore, 11 Mar 2010Nuwan Please Help me out!!! Please.......Dear Nanda Kishore,
I don't really know why you've turned off the incoming message alert... Because you want to know whether a message comes or not... But yet you've turned off the sound... What do you want it to do for you...?
When it's ringing showing some sort of an animation it's totally natural as during the ringing phone is having some alert... But message is something different.. It's just a one moment thing and when you turn off the sound alert there will not be anything more but the 'Menu Breathing light'
I'm sorry... First I don't understand what do you wish the phone to do when a message receives... Do you want it to jump up and down or something...? (No offense please...) And second as I don't think this mobile will do something more for you specially when you want the incoming message alert also turned off...
Faraz, 11 Mar 2010hi nuwan
i wanna ask u that does it make any difference if the nokia 5530 is made in china o... moreDear Faraz,
Honestly speaking I don't think there's such difference between Nokia china made and Finland or Hungary made mobiles... Actually there can't be such a difference as Nokia strictly follows it's standards each and every Nokia factories all over the world...
Regardless of the country they're being made, the fact that they're come out from Nokia factories I'm pretty sure they all are same...
I also searched in Nokia forums where some Nokia exports have expressed their ideas about it, and all of them have told very very clearly that, Nokia wouldn't do such a thing... Quality control of Nokia should be exactly same in each and every factory they owe all over the world...
At last, did you ever think, why would such a reputed company as Nokia do such a thing...? Knowing that it'll reduce the demand for their own mobiles why Nokia would maintain such a quality difference...? For me, it's totally ridiculous idea and I'm pretty sure Nokia china made phones are as good as Finland made ones...
However when it comes to Market, China made Nokias are priced lower than the Finland made ones... You know why?
1) In china you can get high skilled labors for cheap salaries... For an example high skilled mobile technician you may get for 250-300 USD monthly salary in China... But in Finland you will have to pay for the same skilled labor more than 10 times as that...!
2) In order to promote foreign invests in China, government has reduced costs of so many things... Taxes, Electricity and all other facilities are very very cheaper in China compared to western countries like Finland..
3) Material wise... The same quality high standard material you'll get in Finland will not cost you 1/5 of the cost in China...
(above 3 reasons clearly shows why western companies like Nokia loves to go to countries like china for their investments...!)
4) There's one more reason for Nokia china made phones are sold cheaper than Finland made... Among people, there's a feeling that China Made mobiles are not that OK and Finland made ones are perfect.. This may be just a feeling without any facts or reasons behind... But this 'JUST FEELING' has a market value...! That has ultimate made a high demand for Finland phones and low demand for China made phones..
Now I think you understand what is the situation and why... If I were you I will not worry about going with Chinese made Nokia if I'm so sure it's Genuine Nokia... Specially when there's a huge price difference between two, Why wouldn't I take the advantage of that...?
Hope this will help...
Love this phone.... thanks to buddy Nuwan!
he helped a lot in making my mind.. now im going for 5530 instead of 5800 :D !!! cant wait to have my 5530.. salamat pare!

how do i delete or remove or uninstall the themes which i have downloaded to my fon? can somebody please help me about these prob?
the looks are really cohl but its also true that it has some disadvantages like it doesnt have loud voice in loudspeaker mode but it has excellent voice quality in headphone.....if we put message tone off we are really unable to know if message comes or not cause only menu light flashes.....also have medium photo quality.....neither too bad nor too good photo quality is dere.....display is awesome and really affordable price is dere,memory is also expandable upto 4 GB,,,,,what else you need in such low price!
According to me Though it has some disadvantages , overall Nokia 5530 Xpress Music is awesome!
And One MORE IMPORTANT THING:
The Battery Life is not Good. I used the phone Moderately like listening 4-5 songs through Earphones, 2 songs Through Loudspeaker,transferred Data B/W PC and Mobile for about 30Minutes and then did normal use like opening the menu , etc and setting the options etc, and talked on the phone for around 3 minutes, and thats it the Battery Showed Low Battery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whatz happening with me!!! Please some one help me out!
NUWAN HELP!!! THANKS IN ADVANCE.
Even i did FUll CHARGE on the day i bought the phone!
NUWAN... Please Help Me regarding the SMS Problem...Plzzzzzzz....Thanks in ADVANCE!!
The LoudSpeaker Volume(For Music) is low when u Play the songs outside..Really very Low.Only u can listen that too is there is no Noise beside U. But The Ringtones is Ok.
The Vibration Alert is Moderate , not that much good.!
The camera Quality Really Sucks!!! looks Like a VGA Camera or a CHINA MOBILE PIECE!!! The Video quality is some what ok!
Cost is really High.
1)Good Retail package with 4GB Memory Card, DATA CABLE,Good IN-EAR PHONES(But with a Small DATA CABLE,,Funny thing!LOL)
2)Audio Quality is Excellent through the Ear-phones Provided in the BOX
3)Nice Looks!!! Sexy Looks
4)Touch Sensitivity is Really AWSOME!!! Rocks!!
(I Thought it will have Multi Touch Imput like IPhone,but not there! :(
5)Nice Build Quality
6)Nice Screen Resolution and Display Quality
1)Main Disadvantage is the PRICE. (It cost me 11,800Rs in HYDERABAD in INDIA)
2)Poor Camera Quality
3)Low Volume Through the speakers
4)few Bugs are there which are really annoying(Dont know whether it is really a bug or not,related to sms retrieval, i posted about this before this post)
5)Small Screen When compared to 5233/5230/5800.
when i recieve a message the display is not lightning up &is not showing any info until i unlock the phone using the lock/unlock switch..When i receive a message jus t the menu key is lightning..If we put the message tone off, then it is impossible to know whether a message came or no!!!
Please tell me what i can do to come out of this problem.
Even Nokia 5800 is also behaving like this.
(When i recieve a call it is lightning and showing the info like whu is calling..but not showing any info while receiving a message!! Please Help me out!)
