Got a few questions:
I've read in several reviews that when under direct sunlight or under intense light, the user can barely see the screen. How did you go about solving that problem?
Also, I'm just wondering if the 5530's touchscreen more sensitive than the 5800.

@Nuwan - About the Opera Mobile 10 Beta 2, how can i set it using WLAN connection only? I think Opera uses my GPRS connection instead of WLAN.

About the fonts. I applied one. You don't have to get your phone hacked. But there is only one available Font for 5530 XM.
Thanks for the help too. I really appreciated it. ^__^
Camry, 23 Dec 2009Seriously can't wait to get this phone! Will be getting it on my birthday.. =)
As for the o... more
About your language problem... I don't know whether it'll support Japanese... All I can say is, there are 5 or 6 languages by default and as far as I can identify Japanese is not among them... (However I'm not sure about it..) May be asking Nokia - Japan care center would be helpful.. Why don't you ask the seller whom you're going to buy the phone from...?
About your second quarry about accidental answering...
It's not an issue as there's a screen lock key (like keypad lock in normal phones...) at the right side of the phone and all you have to do is before you're putting the phone in your pocket just slide it downwards... And when you want to unlock the phone.. Just do the same...
However answering the phone call there's an option on the screen too... (Regardless of the fact it's locked or not...) It's like sweeping your finger right side or left side (Answer or cut the phone call). It's very very unlikely this could happen in your pocket... Because we should systematically sweep in order to answer... I really don't think it would happen by accident when the phone is in the pocket...
I'm using this phone since two weeks and always it's in my pocket when it rings...
Never happened such a thing so far...
Believe me... It's soooo unlikely..
Hope this'll help..
@sniper ive been using zedge.net to get free themes and i had no problem with it. just make sure though that you select the right phone model. u see that "no phone selected" in the top right corner of the homepage?just click on that. if u cant find nice themes for 5530 i suggest u try searching themes for 5800 and n97 if you get an error like "its not compatible with your phone" during installation,just go on with. trust me ive been doing that for 4months now and i dont see any problem with my phone so far. cheers. goodluck. and merry christmas.
Seriously can't wait to get this phone! Will be getting it on my birthday.. =)
As for the only complaint so far (battery) it isn't a problem for me, i have an extra spare battery from my 3120 Classic which uses the same BL-4U.
One thing though, does this read japanese fonts? Half of my music library is all jap and it'll be really annoying if all it shows is symbols.. can anyone address this?
Oh and, when the phone is ringing, can the call be accidentally answered while in the pocket?
Nikko, 23 Dec 2009@Nuwan - Sir, may I ask if 5530 can change fonts? If we can change it, where can i download it?
First of all don't call me 'Sir'. We all are human beings and I feel like being insulted when you call me sir... However I know you didn't mean to...
About your quarry regarding fonts... Yes.. I think there's a way. (As this is a symbian phone there should be a way)
Once I saw a comment on this very same review regarding changing fonts... (With the instructions how to do it...) But personally I did not want to try it as I'm satisfactory with default fonts..
I guess you'll have to hack your phone in order to change fonts... So probably there will be two processes both are being bit risky...
Dear brother... (or sister) I strongly suggest you to stick with the default fonts as they are very compatible with the phone's firmware...
There are several font types in this phone... (For messaging, Menu etc...) So changing fonts exactly matching your needs will not be that easy... On the other hand I don't think it will be as simple as windows where we can copy and paste any font to the fonts folder in control panel.
So be aware of what you're doing... If you still want to do this... Then search for the above said post in this site you'll find it... (No guarantee though...)
Good luck friend...
