seriously.. this is the best phone ever made by nokia.. with its cost and functions
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2011True, but we can't ignore the fact that Nokia sometimes is just slow. Take N8 and symbian Anna... moreanother effect also is different types of models and versions for each region.
example: nokia usa took a very long to update the firmware of the n95-3 (us version), while the n95-1, n95-2 and n95 8gb received it faster.
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2011True, but we can't ignore the fact that Nokia sometimes is just slow. Take N8 and symbian Anna... morei would say it has something to do with fcc approval and cel phone carriers approval, rather than nokia not accepting new ideas and not making decisions.
some devices that are available in europe and asia are not available in the US market. each region has different variants. nokia is doing its best to accomodate all variants.
Ah, shoot! I forgot (again!!!) to put my name in the previous commnt. LOL
therock, 16 Jul 2011nokia can't roll out firmware updates all at once due to different regions.True, but we can't ignore the fact that Nokia sometimes is just slow. Take N8 and symbian Anna case for example. N8 is (or rather was) their flagship device. It deserves more attention, yet we see that phones like E6 and X7 have Anna already while they haven't released Anna for N8. I'm not saying that because of this, E6 or X7 shouldn't have Anna pre-installed. No, I'm saying they should be more careful with this kinda decisions. One could argue the reason for they releasing new phones with Anna and not updating their previous ones is a thechnical move to encourage people to buy their new devices. While I won't completely disagree with this, but I could be true. I think Nokia is also slow at accepting new ideas. But they made (are making) a big move in parternship with microsoft. We must sit and see what becomes of our beloved 5800's manufacturer.
best of wishes for them and also for us
vicky, 16 Jul 2011i try to update firmware, but is show msg there is no update , my firmware vr.is 40.05. and ne... morewhat's the RM or IMEI of your phone???
The firmware varies in region. Some region may take a while to release firmware updates, while some region may not release one at all.
The latest firmware will be release to ALL 5800's. Just be patient and wait.

Try some alternative way for updating (use NSU for example) see if it works.

They don't roll the update for all the product codes at once. There is also a possible chance that your carrier is at blame cause they simply too lazy to release the updates (considering you have a locked phone.) Anyway, if your phone isn't locked, there is a way to update it but you must do it manually. Search something like 'updating 5800 with jaf' or 'updating 5800 via phoenix' and you'll find lots of guides to do it easily. I have done this myself lots of times and at the last time even cooked my own firmware. My device was unlocked and it was stock at version 50. I don't know whether this method works with locked phones or not. I HIGHLY suggest using google. He's your best friend.
best of wishes

smack, 14 Jul 2011This is the best phone in nokia as far as it is,cost to value.. it provides all the necessary ... moreHi, I have some recomendations up my sleeve. ;)
If you like symbian, I highly suggest N8. But it may be a little too expensive, but don't worry, there is also C7 which is cheaper and has lots of kool features of N8. There is also C6-01 which is the cheapest of all symbian^3. There is also E7 which is too expensive and has a full QWERT keaboard. And newly released X7.
Alternatively you could wait for N9, but it will feature Meego as OS, and should be costly.
If you want a change of OS, I recommend Android. If you are on a budget, I'd say take a look at these phones: Samsung Galaxy S, Xperia X10, HTC Desire and it varients. These are one year old phones which are good. I thing Xperia X10 is the cheapest among them.
Now if you want to buy something new and powerful, you should really consider Samsung Galaxy S II, HTC Sensation. These two has dual core CPUes.
Well, hope it's been helpful.
