yeah.. you're right. it's available in philippines.. but in limited stores only.. i've seen one for only PHP 11,500.00. The first time i saw it, it's initial price was 13,500.00 and the second time i checked is about 3 weeks later. Surprising isn't it? The price did become lower in no time...

i recommend you go for the nokia 5530 coz i am about to buy it by next week. lol :) and i'm really excited because it's now available here in the philippines since last month!
@ Meeran...use the attachment folder in the Mem card to paste the songs...it wnt wrk otherwise...
I have been reading reviews on this fone for 2 mths nw...waitin 4 it 2 launch (mumbai). My wait ended last week, got it 4m alpha. To say the least,,,it is a gr8 phone much better than the 5800 as I have it as well...great size better scrolling better than its big bro n even a better camera...didnt expect this as it is no CZ lens!!!...wonderful package
The problems are..the loose battery that evr1 has mentioned, its evident only if u think abt it. I guess its fine and u can get a cover to fix it..the phone has a poor display in direct sunlight. Again its manageble considering its advantages.
The in-ear earphone are awesome..who wants the sennheiser with the 5800 when u get these!!!
I guess the phone is really wrth its price currently 12900 INR....its a steal...N for all others who are waiting...its not goin to be launched this month!!!
hi all i brought it last week i cant play sons wt music player except default sons only.my all songs in e/memorycard .the shop technician also doesnt know about it . if anybody aware pls let me know

I bought this phone and I still love its design, size etc. However, I have to bring it back to exchange for something else for the following reasons:
1) The back of the phone (battery cover panel) comes off very easily and is not fixed there firmly. It feels fragile as to come off any moment. The same is true for batery inside - once the back panel is removed, the battery basically falls out istself. Thus, the back panel and the battery - weak points.
2) For unknown reasons I could see only the callers phone number, but not ID from address book. I canged my SIM, checked for double entries, brough it to autorized service, where I was told that the issue is with the phone software, but they cannot replace because the necesary adapters for such a new model have not arived yet.
3) I make usually 4-5 calls a day, which usually stay within 5 minutes each. Rarely I would send an SMS, but that is usually all I do with it. Nevertheless, the battery dies within 20 hours. I have to charge it every day.
I will return this 5530 that I have had for few weeks and use my older phone till X6 arrives or find something else.

Menu -> Settings -> Connectivity -> Connection Mgr. It will show a list of the active connections. You can select the active connection and turn if Off. I guess this may be similar to 5530.
@rajeev. sorry for typo, the sites are:

(remove space from above links)
@AD 5800 as per specs talktime Up to 8 h 45 min and music playback 35hrs.
Things that consume most of the battery power are:
Screen (when backlight is On), Camera autofocus mechanism, Camer sensor, Vibrating alert and touch feedback vibration, Wi-Fi and ofcourse the GSM/3G connection.
I use 5800 phone less for calling. Mostly use for SMS, calendar, Todo, sometimes camera, image gallery, Applications and use Wi-Fi for ovi store. Avg usage is around 2 hrs a day, as the phone is new :-) Also I don't turn phone off at night. I have to recharge after 2-3 days when level goes below 50%. But charging after 2-3 days is more than satisfactory for me. My previous phone needed recharging alternate days.
Try the following:
Menu -> Settings -> Connectivity -> Network. In Network Mode, select "GSM" instead of "DUAL MODE".
Also goto Menu -> Settings -> Connectivity -> WLAN Wizard. Click Options, Settings. In "Show WLAN availability" select "Never".
Hope this helps.
Mangesh S, 16 Oct 2009@mani You can wait for some more time or buy 5800. If you are buying from singapore, ask you... morehi dear,
plz give feedback of ur battery backup.
i purchased this on last monday, i think itz battery is not gud enough. after first full charge, i got usage of only 12 hrs.(handling usage comes around 2-3 hrs only- here i took few pix, videos, watch vidoes, listen music, playing with mobile and very less talk).
yst.day i heard tht, few distributors change the original battery and put duplicate(it looks like original).
Any body knows hw to check 5800 battery, whether original battery or not? (i searched abt BL5J, but didnt get any details.)
