I think you are asking for firmware update, right?? For that purpose you can download Nokia Software updater but maybe you won't be available to download an update. It depends of your phone, region and service provider. In my case I get stuck with the v3.27 because there aren't updates available yet but I can live with that, I'm not having so much reboots, only like 1 or 2 times per week. If you aren't able to find a newer version this way you can take your phone to a Nokia center.
I have found the same problem you mentioned about the adaptor. It stopped working a month after I purchased my 5700 so I take my adapter and headset to my provider and they replaced it because it was still under warranty. Now I'm not having problems anymore with this new one so maybe your adapter, like my previous one, was defective
@Everyone that owns this wonderful phone:
Thanks for all your support. I feel this site like my home, if I have a doubt about my 5700 I only need to enter it and one or two days later is resolved. I love to help people that have problems too and compare phones so I feel like we are a great team.
To adityia and vip_blast you are the best in this forum, I can't say one time when you let me down with no answer for my question ;) thanks for the lcg jukebox link, I'll install it right now and cheers for this all rounder 5700.
Can anybody here please tell me about the sound quality of 5700 through headphones and how it compares with that of the N95.
HoT ShOt Joy is right the site he metioned ig good not great but still good i foun some intersting softwares there check it if u want>>>>
hey i found the best site for nokia 5700 games , and app download .trust me it is the best . http://www.mobi11.com/
where can i get the new program for this phone cause my phone keeps shutting down on me for some reason i do not know so play tell me website i can find the newest program thank you
Yeah There is a problem in the handfree adapter of this set , mines one stop working no button press was showing any function, it is due to the reason, there is a cell in the adapter which becomes weak n weak atlast ends it can be replaced by the mobile workshops , thats it
When this phone came out i did not see what all the fuss was about. But after reading the gsmarena review and buying the phone, I can say that i too am the proud owner of the nokia 5700. This phone has to be one of the best all rounders ever created by nokia. Its build quality is superb, it doesnt freeze or hang, its quite fast for a smartphone, has symbian platform, is compatible with many programs, has beautiful music quality (though not much bass) and the best headphones ever to come with a mobile phone.
It may not have all the features in the world, but if it did, it may have been strong enough to dethrone nokia n95, n82 and e90 as the best heavyweight champions.
It shall be very hard for me to upgrade to another phone. The n78 has caught my eye. It is said to have music capabilities of the n81 or n91 plus the same 369 mhz processor and a carl zeiss camera (due out in may).
If i do get it, i wil stil keep this phone. It is worth every penny.
Is it possible to assign a ring tone (louder noise) for delivery report?
I too own 5700 & yes its brilliant phone but comparing it with N95 is like comparing oranges with mango.
Few things u missed in N95 are dual processor, with larger screen(2.6), 3d hardware accelaration, GPS, Open Gl Support.
they both have their place, but we cheers for 5700.
Here's a link for LCG Julebox, I found the app on my forum for you ^_^....
Thanks a lot aditya. Well I'm going to keep using more my hs-44, but the sennheiser produces more detailed sound. Only the bass is loosing compared to the Nokia branded philips hs-44.
I'm not using lcg jukebox because I can't find it for free
I got this phone 2 weeks ago and I am so glad I choose it over the nokia N73/ME. I was worried about the camera quality from the reviews that I read on the internet. The camera quality is brilliant in bright light but way below average in poor lighting conditions, that is so true. We compared the camera to the SE k800i cyber shot just to see how better the k800 camera is. We were shocked when a 2 mp camera won a 3.2 mp auto focus camera in a photo shoot out. But that was because the k800 screen was scratched up. Damit!!!
The video quality is excellent in full screen.
Sound quality is excellent, better than the SE W series. (I had a walkman) but when it comes to bass SE takes the win.
The full web browser is superb, I also use opera mini 4.0 which is faster.
The screen is great but I expected more from 16m colors. (Its brilliant)
The twisting keypad is solid but takes some time getting used to. I mastered it in a week.
The joystick, lol, that’s the main reason why I choose this phone over the nokia n73. I read too many reviews about the n73 joystick breaking off, even after two days, am so glad mine is still in place.
I compared the 5700 - n95. The 5700 has a faster processor, class 32 gprs, comes with 1gb card and a better battery life. The n95 has a 5 mp camera, 640*480 video at 30 fps, wifi and more internal memory. (The other features are about the same) Those 4 things are not enough for the huge price difference.
If you are thinking about buying this phone. Don’t wait any longer. Buy it. You wont regret it.

its not the usual s/w bug, you may have to replace the speaker or check the connecting wire which may need some experience in phone repair.
Go to some mobile shop, that is what I can suggest u.
