And this phone has T9 numeric virtual keypad... which has alot of space . I wouldn't use the fullsize keyboard tho... i think that needs TONS of practice cause it's so small.
But of course don't expect you can be texting like your on a blackberry but expect to text like ur on a regular phone
I Have Tried Out This Phone And I Have Found That To Text On It Isn't Exactly Difficult But It Takes A Bit Of Time, In Comparison To Having Normal Buttons.
After Using It For A While Does This Become Easier Or Not? As I Text A Lot And I'm Thinking Of Getting This Phone Or The Samsung S8300 UltraTouch When It Comes Out.
Valy, 26 Feb 2009Hi everybody... I'm very interested in buying a nokia 5800 express music but till now i can't ... morered is really hot colour & blue is the worst colour in all nokia sets.i m using 5800 red colour.enjoy
Updating the firmware to v20.0.012 sorts out many of the issues.
- Geotagging information now available in Camera.
- Dictionary application added, with support for multiple languages.
- App. update application added - this is used to update individual Nokia applications outside of firmware updates.
- General operation seems smoother, better performance in various applications, including Gallery, plus screen rotations are faster.
- Playing back Flash/FLV videos had less hiccups, especially on YouTube.
- ‘Search’ on the standby screen now searches phone content as well as on the internet.
- Cosmetic effects added, especially in Gallery when switching orientation.
- The usual small bug fixes.

Hey, Im interested in buying the 5800, can anyone advise me on a few things first:can you really download as many songs from Nokia for the first year and how does this work if I am on T-mobile? Also is there any way of having a track id service on this phone and, does the web browser have a flash player so can watch live feeds such as sport?
Thanks for your help

wayne, 26 Feb 2009do you think this phone is durable? especially its case. because it looks very fragile and bre... moreHonestly wayne, most phones are fragile. Most phones won't "break" when you drop them. But it would get scratched up with dents. Durability? well it depends on how long you intend to use it for. Everytime i buy a new phone i told myself omg this phone is so nice (and expensive) i think i'll use this forever ... but ends up buying another one a year later. So if a phone is problem-free that year... God blessed!
Most phones are plastic anyways... and this is touch screen so don't expect this to be a smooth flat rock!
but i do love it. it's rigid in phone standards. and i think Nokia has done alot of research on making phones more durable... against normal wear and tear...
My previoius nokia classic 6500. i poured wine on the keypads. Still works! I think it was luck but honestly this is a good phone. It's touchscreen so u have to be more careful than the other ones.
Think about it. This phone is rather cheap compare to most decent touch screen smart phones. U are left with 2 options really. get this phone or get the iphone 3g which every other kid has. Remember also the iphone is already "old news" since it was launched last summer. If you really want an iphone i suggest you wait for the next one. (Steve Jobs ALWAYS have new stuff every year) Or get this phone if you really need one now. Yes there are a bunch of new better touchscreen smartphones announced and came out recently but honestly they are not gonna be in our hands until at least the end of the year. (and they are very expensive to start). Most of them probably 2x the price of this phone.... so u don't have many choices.
how 2 upgrade 2 tht v20 version...??
i tried nokia upgrade and i even tried it through my phone, but of no use...it shows, no update available....
my phone shows v11 version...plzzzz help

I can talk for 5 hours nonstop on this PHONE, your IPHONE can't.
Iphone? let's talk for 1 hour and if it hangs up wait two hours because u need to charge it. They can't have replacement batteries remember? So if ur planning to take your phone out the whole day you better not touch that touch screen much cause then u'll drain it all. Oh yeah the iphone has a million things to do, but you are allow to do all these PLUGGED lolz
Something the iPhone can do that this can't do.
I can take my iPhone to Europe OR America and use 3G in both places, the 5800 can't it's one or the other, depending on the model.
So this definately can't do everything the iPhone can do.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2009i've got the phone...yeah mxit for the N95 8gig works fine.......Cool man. You have any problems using MXIT on it? How's is it in terms of ease of use and typing etc in terms of using MXIT on it or any other instant messaging apps for that matter?
