I have this problem where my 5610 was working all the way until when I was getting ready to go to bed. The screen just went crazy with all these weird colours as though the graphic adapter was put out. I have to bring it for repair soon, so if anybody has any idea, please e-mail me! (and save me a loads of repair money)
The battery life reported by nokia is, as far as my experience can say, an awful lie! 8hrs of music playback drains most of the battery. I read here that it gets a little better with age, but still haven't confirmed it.
Yeah, might help if you take it to nokia, but... did you try what... someone... said earlier? About having the same number assigned to two different contacts?
As of overall opinion, I'm loving this phone. Great camera, great sound (crystal clear, as people has been saying) and about the loudness, I have no complains: I can't possibly stand having the volume at it's highest with my earplugs. The screen is ridiculously beautiful.
My only complain is the battery and the lack of multitasking. You can have the music player in the background and do other stuff meanwhile, but you can't use the forward, play/pause buttons or control the media player in any way without closing the aplication you're running first. Huge flaw, if you ask me, but nothing I can't cope with.
The slider key is beautiful, by the way, and the radio gets good reception with the handsfree set.
About the phone's reception, I haven't had a single problem with it so far, but my service provider has wonderful coverage so I haven't had the chance to actually test it in troublesome conditions.
The media buttons, although not dedicated (except for the camera and volume, of course, which is now customary), are quite good. Easy to press thru my jeans (I usually keep the phone in my pocket and press the buttons without taking it out). The numeric keypad is just the ultimate messaging experience. The feedback is so pleasing that you might end up with a huge sms bill just for the pleasure of it. Only problem is I have big fingers so the top keys, 1,2,3, are slightly blocked by the slider. No biggie, you just have to get used to it.
Overall, great phone, but next time I might consider a SE just for the battery life and multitasking. Although my only SE phone was a Z series, which excell in nothing in particular, but the life battery was so great that I usually lost the charger from time to time on account of not using it too often and the multitasking made things a little easier. Only problem is that 5610's equivalency on SE, that is, w580 or w850 (or the likes), don't have the same specs (usually no Edge, bad camera, no flash, loose slider mechanism and whatnot) and are just as expensive; so you get less from your money.
Wasn't this a long one... hope it helps you make up your mind.
To Bobby - The details you want have been posted in this forum many, many times already!
And to Confused - yes some say its great, some say its not so great. Thats the thing with opinions - there's no right or wrong, just what's right or wrong for the individual person. You might like it, or you might hate it, but only you will know this - nobody else can tell you, so you've got to try it for yourself and form your own opinion.

2. Though camera was my priority 3.2 is good but there is no front camera like N series one.
3. Audio supports MP3 but not Video.

to Ash -
The problem with your game is that its requirements are too much for the processor to handle at times. The message not enough memory is not talking about the spare memory you have available on the phone, but the RAM memory in the phone which is used when running applications. If your appliacation requires too much RAM and the phone can not supply it then the game will end giving you the message you see.
Overall this phone is good. Infact i love it.
I ve had this phone for about two months now and i realised it has some negative points, like the battery, with normal usage lasts for around 3 days ( normal standby for other nokia phones is around 5 days). It froze a couple of times before i updated the software but now it seems ok. The camera is not one of the best (so dont buy it if you want very high quality pictures) its not bad either.
The sound is very clear but the volume is not so high but if you use the head phones this should not be an issue. Viewing viedos on the phone is also very good as the picture is crystal clear
All in all I would reccomend this phone, but if your still unsure i would wait for a couple of weeks before buying it mabe in the meantime the issues i mentioned above would be solved by that time.
im really confused! im searching for a new phone here, and i'm supposed to rely on your opinions. but i guess its not very helpful.. some say this phone rocks their world! others say this phone sucks becuase of this and that! now that i read them all, i really don't know if buying this phone would be the right thing for me to do.. :(
hei people, a lil help here.. over-all rating please! is this phone ok or not?
Are you using the software supplied with the mobile phone to convert you MP4 so that they are fully compatible with the phone. i had the same problem but now im using this sowtware and the videos are crystal clear and it plays somoothly both sound and picture.
To Ansari - you can't change the folder for files that are transferred using Bluetooth - its a standard function of the phone to put everything into the "received files" folder. You can of course trasfer to the memory card afterwards.

To Martin - this forum is full of opinions about the sound quality/loudness of the 5610. There are currently 61 pages so why not go back and check them.
That goes for 99% of the questions being asked here, including the camera quality too!
Hi, I bought Nokia 5610 recently and when you play a mp4 video, the video does not stream smoothly, it breaks very often, but the sound is OK. Does anyone have an idea on how to resolve this.
It's camera is far better than those mobiles having 2MP cam....speaker volume is loud enough and sound quality is excellent...
