i updated the phone firmware and now its doing wonders and its faster, i strongly recommend it.
@ mujtaba -
i tried both " *#06# " displays my serial number and " *#0000# " displays my firmware (os) version and other important info ... if u have installed any applications that checks phone memory or other phone info i suggest u uninstall or remove em and try again ... also don't forget u can always do a master reset to ur phone ...
@ xan -

I think the man who have Nokia5700 not only lucky but also smart and clever
the mobile contian every thing net,radio,high music,flash,...andsmart shape
Nokia Care provides free software update, as per Nokia Care Ali Mall Cubao here in Quezon City.
Still, version 3.83.1 is the latest as of to date. By the way, anybody here who knows what the update did to 5700? I only noticed one improvement so far. It doesn't restart or lag since I've had mine updated last November.
So far, it's the most enjoyable mobile that I've had ever. I've been using it since June 2007.
Some of my comments
-still image camera is good only in outdoors.
-camcorder is satisfactory.
-videos from youtube play seamlessly and retain their stereo sound.
-music player is so easy to use (I wish it had an 8-band equalizer). albumart support, shuffle and playlists are must-haves.
-volume is not that loud but sound quality is clear and bass is somehow evident.
-twisting base doesn't get loose.
-in my case, it's dust-resistant. some of my past phones tend to have white stuff in their screen after some time.
-2.5 av port is so upsetting, you still need to use the adapter. I find it inconvenient whenever i use my own headphones and speakers.
-surfing the net is satisfactory. the phone's browser is responsive and is fast whenever i download files. a 4MB music file is saved in the gallery in less than a minute.
-screen resolution is unbeatable.
-calls are great.
-texting is hassle-free. the keypad work was great.
-awesome default themes. I downloaded other great themes from mosh.nokia.mobi.
-the phone's glossy white part has no scratches (again, I've been using this since June).
Well website shows 3.27 for my version also. I went at Nokia care two days back and they people updated it to latest version. You can also try same thing as when I contacted nokia customer care they told me that websites may not be updated.
may i know your product code? cause mine still stuck at v03.27 when i checked at nokia website.
thanks in advance
@Xan & 5700 XM
You can download nokia software updater form any nokia site. It may show you that your version is latest even if you have 3.27 version.(It may not be updated for your region just like mine, I am in India)
If it says that 3.27 is latest Go to Nokia care and ask them to update firmware with 3.83.1 do remember to confirm it when you receive your phone with *#0000#.
I bought this phone last saturday and is the best.I really love it.The only problem I have found is that I can't find the quickoffice for this phone. And I need it!!! Does anyone know were can I find it??
You are lucky to have ppl exchange the headset for you on warranty. Here where i stay, nobody listen to you when you mention warranty. We buy and hope all things will be ok. Any faulty product and you are on your own.
As for the bluetooth headset, i have nokia BH-330. its not stereo but it works well for the phone with calls and music (poor mono sound). No, you cannot use bluetooth headset for this phone with FM radio. One enhancement is connected at a time and you need the wired headset as antennae.
@ 5700 XM -
u need a faster internet connection (not 56 kpbs dialup) a pc with a usb port & a usb data cable ... u need to download nokia software updater from the link and install it then follow the on screen instructions ...
@ @ Dr Adedoyin -
thx for the help adedoyin u were right it has nothing to do with the phone its the headset that have been giving trouble ...
all the people at nokia care here in srilanka (colombo 4) have been very nice to me they said they dont have new nokia 5700 xm headsets at the moment but they will get some in 2 weeks time ... till then they gave me a nokia 5610xm handfree set to be used ... they said at once they get new nokia 5700xm headsets they will call me so that they will replace my older headset with a new one ... the funny thing is i took the warranty card to show em but they even didn't ask for it i just said i have a warranty card thats all ... but they didn't even looked at it lol ...
