For an extensive review of the Nokia 5610 Music Express phone and a tutorial to use a GPS with it, visit my blog at http://sriraminhell.blogspot.com/2008/05/mega-review-nokia-5610-trekbuddy-and.html
Dear MaxG...nokia 6600 is also good looking as it seems...bt i dnt knw abt th performance...bt it is still suprising tht people complain abt nokia 5610...itz sch a nice phone wth sch gr8 picture quality!!!...when th pictures r put in th laptop it seems as if th pictures r taken in a digicam of 6 MP!!!...still nw only once my mobile hs restarted...video in MP4 format is good nd is sound is good as usual...moreover th style nd red colour is so nice...i doubt whether people get th original mobile bcz i hv seen fake nokia 5610 in th market which look 95% exactly as th original set!!!
dilip, not all sis needs to be signed, but most of them that NEEDS to be signed are freewares. RotateMe is one of them.
If you think music is important for you, get the 5610.
If you think camera lens quality and TV-out feature is important to you, get the 6500 slide.
Other than these, 5610 and 6500 slide are almost identical.
Of course, the looks of the phones are also different. I think 5610 (red color) looks more stylish.
me planning buy a cell phone... Can u please suggest me which one to buy as there is a confusion between 5610 n 6500 slide. Bothe seems to be compatible in terms of specifications but the review of 6500 is not great n even there are sum faults in 5610. Please guide me soon as i got to buy them in next few days.
is it for all sis files n sis games,
like for all sis files v hav 2 sign d files.
wat signin sites other than symbian singning .com
There's difference in recording no. starting 09######### and +639#########.. Why's that?
See I bought this phone and I had this problem.. When I receive a text message, the name I registered in my phonebook doesn't appear if the number I typed for that particular name starts with 09#########, but if I record it as +639#########, the name will appear in my phonebook but If that person calls, his/her name will not appear; it requires saving the number starting 09#########.
welcome back soumik!
There are a few new phones presented by Nokia last month but I think none of them can really beat 5610 yet :)
The two new XpressMusic phone, 5220 is a cheaper 5310 with funny shape and music lights, and 5320 is a larger 5310 with symbian and N-gage. But both have only 2" screen and 2MP camera. So 5610 is still the best XpressMusic!
6600 slide is interesting coz it looks almost like a rip-off from 5610, with smaller size on all dimensions, larger battery, and accelerometer. The rest of the specification are identical to 5610. I think this will also be a very successful phone like the 5610, but it is not as stylish as the 5610 casing (especially red 5610), and again many people complain it is not symbian (since the original 6600 was a popular smartphone in 2003)...
What do you think?
Because, when you install a new symbian software on a new phone, it will check the "digital signature" and compare with the new phone IMEI. If both matches, only the software will run. This is to prevent phone virus or hacker.
So, for every new phone, you need to sign it again with the new IMEI...
how is it possible,if i once signed,it will not work on other fones?
y is it like that?
Hi friends... i am back after long 45 days.... so hwz th phone going on wth u people...hope u r njyng th phone...enjoy...
dilip, you give me your old phone IMEI is no use. If you change phone, the new phone will have a new IMEI and any symbian software sign with your old IMEI will not work in your new phone or other phone...
Just follow the instructions. If you don't understand, ask someone else to help you. It is not difficult.
aLL i can say is..this phone is the best! especiaLly the sound quaLity..i think it's the best phone of it's kind.
at first i aLso hesitated in buyin this phone becuase of all the negative comments i've read but stiLL my instincts won over my doubts and i'm teLLing you guys this fone is one of the best.
you can use video call if your network provider supports it..
and yes you can still install lots of new software and games as long as it's in .jar format.
you can download softwares, games and themes from this site.
hope you enjoy it!
Relly bad quality mobile phone, for 350 euros unlocked in my country, after 2 weeks the slide key just falled, and the mobile was always handled carefully!!! This is a shame for nokia, for this price I could go for an iphone locked to my operator!!!
This phone is unable to run .sis files. There is no way to make it work those files on 5610 but you can always install java aplications.
About the videocall feature, it depends maunly on your service provider, if they support such function or maybe because you bought your phone factory unlocked this isn't able to work with that service because isn't configured with your service provider.
