andy burgin, 07 Apr 2009There is just one thing that i do not like about on the 5800 is searching the internet or O2 a... moreMaybe that is not the problem with nokia but with O2 service, maybe they have spyware to collect information's on clients activities, and it may slow things down!
==Formating Phone Question==
Does anyone know the hard reset code for the 5800 xpress? I tried the soft format code and it worked, but the hard format code tells me 12345 is wrong. Whats the best way to format the phone? hard format?
There is just one thing that i do not like about on the 5800 is searching the internet or O2 active,my N95 8gb was so quick an easy to do ,but with the 5800 express its that slow an annoying finding the right section,so Nokia as got some work to do to make it alot simplier an faster on there latest mobiles
hey, I work for a phone company one of the main reasons that the phone will freeze or do strange things like power itself off is because you are not powering off the phone!!(i find i just put this on silent the whole time!!) it sounds simple but this has a lot of software and new features on these new phones and you need to power the phone on and off (doesn't need a down time) about once a week to stop these problems...try it ya never know it may work!
I have had this phone for 3 weeks of everyday use as my business and personal phone. My use consists of about 20min/hr on voice calls, 5min/hr internet browsing, Nokia maps usage, heavy text and picture messaging, emails, picture taking and sending, some app usage, and very minor gaming.
-Easy to use after 2 days
-solid touch screen
-almost all screens and apps make use of the screen rotating
-perfect size for movies
-speakers are loud but too loud in my office so I have to set to lowest setting
-I have synced to my gmail, yahoo, work mail, and receive all with no problem
-Nokia Maps is up-to-date for the Houston, TX area
-Internet browsing is very fun and fast
-Pictures, while grainy at night are perfect in the day
-PCSuite software is fast to handle files and I have already uploaded hundreds of pics, wallpapers, themes, apps, etc to my phone.
-Picks up ATT's 3.5G connection never had a single dropped call
-Picks up WiFi seamlessly simple
-Screen lock is perfectly located and the phone can be used with one hand
-The dual flash can be turned on for shooting videos in low light
-TV-out quality, which I must say is superb for videos
-Using the stylus for handwriting and so much easier but can become a hassle if you have a lot to say.
-Multitasking is as simple as holding the main button down for 1 second and selecting your open apps and screens. Closing is as simple as holding down that app for 1 second and select close. I normally have at least 6 open at all times - Web, Log, fring, Menu, Home screen, email/txt.
-Slideshow home screen, select all the pics you want and have your home page slide through all of them, I have 85 images setup at intervals of 1 minute each. But I don't think you can use GIF images which sucks.
-I hate using apps as a reason to like a phone but JoikuSpot turns your 5800 into a WiFi hotspot for other phones and laptops, and fring allows you to use Yahoo, Google, MSN, AIM, Skype, etc all in 1 spot, both highly recommended. Fring is totally free, Joiku has a 2 day trial and several purchase options from 2 days to lifetime.
-As mentioned night pictures are grainy
-When taking a video it seems to start off zoomed out so you have to back up some.
-I never make use of the little quick launch button in the top right, its easy to go through the main screen.
-I clean the screen by using my thumb and rub across, in the long run I end up with residue on the edges on the screen which are not hard to clean but looks dirty.
-iPhone users become more smug when I am actually using my phone and they are simply holding it their phone wishing they had something more than an expensive accessory.
-Videocall can not be used because nobody else has a cool enough phone for the feature. :(
-The earpiece seems like a pit for dirt with no simple solution for cleaning out
-Battery usage, I have to recharge every night or it won't make it the next day. This is due heavy use, not sure how light use would pan out. After 10 hours I get the low battery note.
Sorry for such a long post but this a THE BEST phone I have ever used and Nokia has exceeded my expectations by far. Oh and you can hook this thing up to your HDTV and view movies, this phone owns all others I have ever own or seen in the US.
To all the expert users out there, does anyone know how I can get a very good anti-virus software for this phone?
Also, any ideas as to why Yahoo mail can't be setup on this phone, but Hotmail and Gmail do get setup? This is quite confusing and disappointing.
Prompt and good feedback is highly welcome.
I think this phone is the ultimate. There is a lot one can do with the phone apart from music, watching video/movies & the numerous games/applications that can be loaded & used on the phone.
