This is to acknowledge your response to my post regarding Nokia Search v.4.00. And thanks a lot for that.
I'm just really itching to get that app since it is very useful just like the ones I've experienced with N81 and N95-2. Looking for a particular file is just a breeze with the Search version 4.00.
For the rest, again, my issue is that I can't get to install Nokia Search version 4.00, and my 5700 tells me to remove the current version of Search from App Manager. Removing Search v.2.27 can't be done since it doesn't show up in App Manager.
I have firmware v.3.83 and I think this should not be an issue.
Is 4.21 really the latest firmware version for 5700? Will somebody kindly explain it to me? I'm here in the Philippines and I ask if this is available here?
Thanks a million.
not very good results with this camera.
though its got a flash, not really worthy.
disappointed by the pic result.
does anybody know how to make the video ring tones appear when message is received. i just only hear the sound, but i cant see the video even if i am on standby screen and somebody texted me.
Help me. Thanks!!!
yo guys there is a new version of this phone its with 3mp camera and better pros... go chek it out. and its nokia 5710.
The loudest phones manufactured by Nokia are 6233, N95 and N73.
But I entirely recommend you this phone.
VS 6233: the most obvious reason is that 5700 has S60 9.2 alike 6233 that has s40 (much inferior platform), 5700 is newer, has ini usb port and 2.5mm jack with 3.5mm adaptor instead pop port and has a more attractive body with rotating keypad. The price is higher but or all the things you get it's definitely worth it.
VS N95: 5700 is much cheaper, in my country (Mexico) it cost the half of the N95, has the same OS so you can install almost the same aplcations that you would have in a N95, 5700 is a newer model, is lighter, has better battery and a smaller but brilliant screen. The Wi-fi and 5mp camera doesn't worth to pay te twice of this great phone.
VS N73: I think that this is the best option if you don't pick the 5700 because is almost at the sam price tag, has bigger screen, a slghtly more powerful speakers but aren't as clear as 5700, the battery life is good in both models but I think 5700 is better in music because has mini usb port and 2.5mm jack (the adaptor to 3.5mm is very cheap like 1 usd, and the retail package has one included with remote control)vs the obsolete pop port, and a newer OS with 60 minute voice recording vs 1 minute on n73, repeated alarm, etc. Think it for a while and pick your best option but I think 5700 is the best you can get for the money and great clear sound.
hi.. how did you upgrade to 4.21? did you use the software updater? im still stock with the 3.27 :(
Hi Sanju, I am listening to my 5700 with the power of 4gb card. In fact 5700 has reduced my listening to my main hi-fi as well as my ipod since I have bought this phone.
Secondly kudos to you for updating to 4.21. How did you do that - put in details here. I have found a post in an ORKUT 5700 forum detailing how to update to 4.21 but I am afraid that the process appears not very staright forward.
Meantime, please let us know the benefits of 4.21 over 3.27.
By the way I am not getting your mails. Is it that I have mis-typed my mail address.
I am putting it once again. Just check it
Thnx man i found it......but it was not working....nehw thnx a lot
@ sanju -
looks like some of us are going to be the owners of this great handset after all lol ...

To all the users of 5700 from INDIA-- Frnds , dont waste ur time by trying to update ur handsets firmware via nokia software updater. Even i wasted my time by doing this from the past one month , but in vain. Instead , do one thing . Just go to ur nearest nokia care centre , and get ur handset updated. And guess what ? Even i did the same thing , and finally i got my firmware updated today from 3.27 to 4.21. Cheers !
To Partha-- Hi partha. How are you ? Its been many days , since i saw ur postings on this forum. What happened ? Busy listening to high quality songs through stereo loudspeakers on ur 5700 ? Hmm....understandable ! Anyways , hoping to see u soon on this forum. And hey , guess what ? I updated my firmware from 3.27 to 4.21 today ! I have sent u a mail also. So , hoping to see ur reply soon. Cheers !
To Vanadess-- Do u want to know why 5700 was stopped ? Well the reason is very simple. When 5700 was released , no one knew that the handset was so good. But , slow and steadily , it gained popularity , and even nokia people spent a very very few bucks ( nokia had spent a whole lot of money for promoting other handsets , but not for 5700 )for commercial ads. And when people got to know about the handset's features , the demand increased. Then , nokia people got huge orders from the dealers , for 5700. After that nokia started manufacturing 5700 rapidly. But , the demand was high and the supply was less. So , day by day , the demand for 5700 got so much , that nokia people were not able to produce that many models and finally they decided to stop producing 5700 !!! Cheers to nokia 5700 xm ! 5700 rocks !
A big ' HI ' to one and all. Well guys , after trying thousand times to update my firmware through nokia software updater , i was not able to update. I was being shown that i was on the latest firmware. So , finally , toady i went to my nearest nokia care centre and got it updated . And guess what ? The latest firmware version is not 3.83. But , it is v.4.21. And i know that many of you are waiting to know what are the changes that has taken place after upadating the firmware from 3.27 to 4.21. Well , here they are--
1.There has been an addition of an application called ' 3D ORGANISER ' . Basically , it is an application , which contains details about islamic religion , prayer timings and other things. You can even set the prayer timings according to ur country. This application can be found as follows-- MENU >> APPLICATIONS >> MY OWN >> 3D ORGANISER. This app comes along with the v.4.21 firmware update.
2.And regarding music playback , music player has been a bit stabilised. I mean to say , bass has been improved a bit and even loudness has been increased by a margin ( only very little ). The loudness has not been increased considerably , but the songs sounds much more vibrant and clear and loud . I played nearly 100 songs , and i found out that , the songs come out quite well , in the 4.21 firmware version , when compared to 3.27 version. Even though the music playback is nowhere near 6233 / n73me , the playback is good when compared to v.3.27. So , dont expect any sort of miracles. Because , the bass and the loudness has been increased very very little. But still , it can be found out by an average user. So , on whole , the music playback is good.
3. No more restarts / hangs. Even if you open a number of applications or websites ( while browsing the internet )simultaneousy , the handset does not lag anymore.
And i havent found anymore positive changes after the firmware update. But , i have found one negative change after the firmware update. The thing is , when u play mp4 videos in fullscreen , after a few seconds , it stucks. But , when it lags , the screen goes completely blank for a second ! In v.3.27 , when the video used to stuck/lag , the playback continued normally after it got stuck after a few seconds. But after the firmware update , when i played the same vide , after a few seconds , it not only got stuck , but the screen went blank for a second , and then the video resumed. And this happens for every 15 / 20 /.. seconds , depending on ur video...But this is really disappointing as it spoils the pleasure of watching videos. But this is not a big problem , as this problem can be solved by using a 3rd party app for watching videos.
Apart from that , there is no more significant changes. So , in v.4.27 , the handset works really smooth and without any lag. On the whole , handset works absolutely fine.
Cheers to 5700 !

@The Nerd ,
You can't nerd. Thats the simple truth. 240*320 wallpaper will not work and fill the screen of these phones. The top and bottom areas are not covered by wallpaper.
If you like your 240*320 wallpaper so much and you want it to cover your screen, then turn it into a theme by using DIY Theme software on your phone or visit ownskin.com and use your wallpaper to make theme at the site.
