Two great things about it, the shape of the thing means trying to balance it for the cameras self timer is impossible and secondly the way the power and headphone sockets are at the top, ideal for water to run into when its raining (yes in some parts of the world it does rain and some people will make calls in the rain)
I heard this phone gets hanged like crazy at times ! is that true ?!! im plannin to buy this....but i really aint a fan of phones gettin hanged every other day!
Is this model made in China? In Saudi Arabia, you can't find a unit which is made in Finland.

i agree with all the things you said except for one, regarding the incoming call...when someone is calling me, i can see his/her contact details (name or mobile number) wether my unit is locked or not. it has caller ID and is working really fine so i don't know why your unit does not do the same. i suggest you bring it to nokia service center so they can check what's the problem...regards...

There you can see the name and number of your caller.. mabuhay IKC = Iphone killer clan...

I bought by 5800XM 5days ago. But there are some problems in it. When I listen Music in built-in music player, at the end of each track, I hear a cracking noise for about 1 second, then a pause for 1 second and finally the next track begins. These MP3 and M4A songs are quite normal in N95 with the same memory card. It occours in case of both handset and headset. Another problem is with video player. When I play a video, sometimes it freezes for 1-2 seconds than play again.These also play well in my N95. Can anyone tell me what occurs in your case? How can I solve this? Is it possible to make a group or playlist in video player or gallery which we can do in N95? Thanks in advance.
Xenon, 25 Jan 2009After using for about a week..i am gonna comment on dis. For me dis is not da perfect set! ye... moreHi! may i ask if someone texted you in 5800 did there name appear on the screen or just a plain text message received? tnx!

hxs, 25 Jan 2009hi.. i m thinking of buying a touch phone... but i m confused if i shld buy the i-phone or 580... moreIm telling you right now get the 5800 if you dont want to pay 100 a month for your bill because if you get the iphone 3g lagemenetly than your gonna get it from att but you can still get it from t mobile but the experience is not as good so get the 5800 and u can customize it ur way
I have been using the phone for a few days....no doubt it is a good phone but some snags are always always there....there would be no 100% perfect phones I ever met...
What I found in 5800 Xpress Music is that the phone doesn't blink and display the incoming call numbers...the screen is just in black and if u wish to pick up, u just need to press the green button on left bottom side....which I don't like it very much because I can't see who is calling....I guess Nokia should have corrected this in the batch of production, I hope...
The screen colour is very very nice....I like it very much...no doubt it has 16M colour... touch screen pad is very responsive, probably it can beat IpHone also in this manner...
Writing SMS is easy also after a few days of used and become familiar....u can even type with one hand too!...but please don't type SMS while driving...ha ha..
Anyone who loves Nokia phone, may be they can opt for this one for his next change!!!!
hxs, 25 Jan 2009hi.. i m thinking of buying a touch phone... but i m confused if i shld buy the i-phone or 580... moreuhm, the choice really boils down to ya, if yu like txting sidewise with a qwerty keypad...yu'd be better off with 5800, otherwise juz go wth the iphone...with camera quality 5800 beats iphone...5800 also beats iphone with connectivity and memory capacity with an expandable memory upto 16gb or maybe even 32gb...iphone beats 5800 for UI quality and also for the thousands of apps available for it...then both of them perform good with multimedia...so yeah..its your choice..
i hope that was able to help yer decision
I was given a demo from nokia on the phone. one word... brilliant! I want one.
