Unfortunately even the german version (made in Hungary) 5800 I bought is not immune to the ear piece problem. I bought my 5800 5 days ago and the ear piece stopped working as expected. Fixed it in 5 mins , video on how to fix it is available on youtube, you don't even need any instruments, just need to bend two contacts which have come loose.

I just downloaded the Google Maps in my 5800. Though it gave a warning of incompatibility I continued to install it and it works nice as described in the gsmarena review.
I have launched google maps and using the GPS and it successfully locked to GPS satellites . The only thing that bothers me is that it pulls the map information from the internet on the fly. So you need to have internet to update the map image on the screen when you go left, right, up or down.
Do you guys know how to download the complete google map of a city first and then move around the city with GPS without requiring the internet? Any idea is highly appreciated.
