llllllll, 18 Feb 2010thx nuwan bro
i m new here so thx once again... bt i have another question bro. i... moreDear llllllll,
You can of course check whether charging is complete or not..
First it gives a message telling something like 'Charging complete, please remove the charger'. (I don't really remember what's it exactly.) But it's more likely you'll miss this message as it disappears in a moment...
Second you can assure that charging is complete by just looking at your charging indicator... When it's plugged in to the charger & when it's charging the indicator shows the animation of charging... When charging is completed, that animation stops automatically even the charger is connected. (This is the most convenient and easiest way...)
However charging for 3 hours is pretty strange... As I remember it can be fully charged by 2 hours... (Somebody correct me if I'm wrong..) I suppose you've not removed the charger even after the charging is complete because you thought it's still charging... Right..?
Anyway, the battery in this mobile (1000 mAh) would have been a very good battery for a normal mobile phone... But for a touch screen mobile with a 2.9" screen, this battery is very poor I have to admit... So if you complain the battery won't last as you expect it to be, then yeah... It's pretty normal... (I also complain Nokia about this weakness of this mobile...)
However you can significantly increase your battery life by following the steps described by our friend 'Haku' in his post... I think you've already read it...
One more thing... This phone is too sexy to hold.. So... During the first days with it, you will not be able to get rid of it... Without even your notice you will be using the hand set more than the normal, average usage of you... There's no wonder that the battery will drain faster than usual... However with time, when you used to it, you'll not use it as much as the first most days... Resulting few more hours by a single charge... (Exactly the same thing happened to me..)

nagla eme, 17 Feb 2010pls i want help there was many pepole advice me dont buy all family of nokia begining with &qu... moreDear nagla eme,
I don't know why a person (who ever he is) advised you not to buy any nokia which begins from 5...! Because all the Music Xpress series phones of Nokia belongs to 5XXX family and they are among the best selling Nokia phones ever...! For an example Nokia 5800 has a record among the best selling mobiles all time...! So ask your friend, 'what is wrong with you...?' I'm sure, he is someone who doesn't know anything about Nokia...
So now with clear mind about 5XXX family, you compare 5530 with 6600 if you want... But if you so much concern about Music Quality and the outer look more than any other feature of a mobile, the you must go for 5530 Xpress Music... Because you won't regret...
N, 17 Feb 2010NUWAN, i have bought this set on saturday. it is a good phone but my battery drains so fast... moreIt is normal, 5530 has an average battery life. I just bought mine too and since I keep using the applications all the time, it drains a lot. Just set the brightness low enough to see, turn off the touch screen tone and vibration off and lower the volume to save you some energy. :)
I own a 5530 and i'm very happy with it, I know it isn't a great phone, but is very cheap... i just don't like the battery life time.... with the wifi on it just last for like one day.. and besides it is kinda slow.. it is just what I expected for that price
Can anyone help me fix the wifi problem with my phone..everytime im gonna use the wifi, "No gateway reply" alwayz shows up..can anybody tell me how to configure the wifi settings of this phone..thank u very much..
pls i want help there was many pepole advice me dont buy all family of nokia begining with "5" like 5310 5530... so on but advice me buy family of nokia begining with " 6" so now i compare with 5530 & 6600i

This is a grate designed phone but why released this phone in market be coz it has no 3G connection??????????? NOKIA must resized 5533XM 2ND version with 3G option & Carl Zeiss optics lance with 3.2MP & GPS Supported.
Great phone! Got mine jan. The prolem however is that it freezes all the time. Especially when im using operamini 5
eklipes, 12 Feb 2010hi guys, my time and date on my phone changes whenever i switch off my phone, but when i take ... moreDear eklipes, I have written the same case , when I tried in a NPD in India. Even in two sets it was the same. So I did not purchased it.
I have tried two sets of 5530 with BSNL sim. But these two showed same result- the clock time changed whenever you off and again on it. As it was tried in a NPD the setting was ok i.e. auto update was off, GMT set at +5.30. I dont know why? Then I dont buy it.
yanget, 17 Feb 2010how was the touch screen, do i have to touch it really hard?Dear yanget,
Hei... You don't have to press harder man... This touch screen mobile is so sensitive and you only have to press a tiny bit... that's all... (Don't break the phone by pressing too hard..!)
But on the other hand it's not that sensitive as Apple iphone if you want to compare the touch screen.. Iphone has 'capacitive touch screen' which doesn't require any pressure while Nokia 5530 has 'resistive touch screen' which require a tiny little press to response...
That's all... See by your self... (I had never used a touch screen before I bought this one, so first most days I was really in trouble because the touch sensitivity was too much...! I always had to take care of accidental finger taps...)
lllllllllll, 17 Feb 2010hey guys do we need to put any plastic cover on its screen????? in my opinion it already have ... moreDear lllllllllll,
Any Nokia mobile has the plastic cover on top of its original screen... And it also has a protective sticker... So 5530 is the same...
BUT... That doesn't say you can use it without care just because you can replace the cover so easily... Yeah.. You can replace the cover, but as you can see, 5530 has that cover attached to it's casing... So you'll have to replace all the casing in order to have a new cover screen... That's of course costly...!
So, my advice is 'Keep the Protective Sticker' as long as possible... But I also have to admit that the original Protective sticker of 5530 isn't so good... It easily get scratches on it so you better replace it with another sticker that you can purchase even from ebay... It's very cheap... (You can get 4 stickers for about 8 US Dollars... That mean one sticker costs only 2 US Dollars...)
These stickers don't last very long.. But I guess you can use one at least 4 months without any problem...
So my recommendation is, buy protective stickers and apply them on top of the screen cover... You don't need any additional plastic cover what so ever... (it's so ugly too... Don't insult this beauty by putting it in ugly plastic containers...!)
Please note that the screen of the Nokia 5530 is not scratch resistive like Apple iphone... So don't use it without protective stickers on it... That's an advice...
