DO'NT PURCHASE. THIS IS MOST POOR CREATION BY NOKIA
i purchase this phone on 21-1-09 from my friend who owned a mobile shop he give me in Rs19000/- he also told that dealer price is 18850/-. but if u want to buy drop this idea because day after purchase i was at nokia service center for serious problem that it not auto update date and time every time i restart phone. service also unabel to solve problem by upgrading its software now that is in replacement process and till today i not get that. i notice one more problem that its connectivity with computer is also very bad beause before giving it to service center a want to take phone book backup sevral times but not get sucsess.
Dude always try to buy Finland made nokias. And make sure to play with the phone before buying. @ charith. Where did u buy ur 5800?
I bought this from Colombo, Sri Lanka 3 days ago. Didnt find any issue with the ear piece or the headset/handsfree. They work perfectly.
Everything is fine except this terrible issue of stucking the keyboard. When the keyboard is activated (either one, fully qwerty, mini qwerty or hand writing) most of the occasions, the phone stucks. Nothing works beyond that point untill i remove the battery. No way to reset by pressing anything. This is very annoying.
I will be taking the device back to the retailer today and seek a solution. I wonder that i didnt came across anything related to such issue on anywhere on the web.
Does anyone has any idea?
The phone is made in China though.

N85 is with OLED screen and it will not survive long time as TFT screens!
Nazia, 27 Jan 2009Mr. Mahmud here in dubai the price for 5800 is about 1250 dhs onlyin bangladesh it is 23000 bd taka
i bought this recently and swapped it for the n85
it is very difficult to use and takes time to get to grips with. touch sounds great in theory to me but after using it a few days the novelty wore off
touch is good but slow for texting and bringing up contacts to make a call
not for me
i am now a proud owner of an n85..my best investment
