Hello all i just bought 5800 yesterday...so far it has been an amazing experience...but my firmware version is 10. when i want to upgrade the firmware it searches for new upgrades and says no updates available??? What to do? How i can download version 11??can any one help me???
5800 has good features, but itseems the quality of camera and UI is not good. Can someone specify a phone with similar features of 5800, but without those problems? Urgent..need to buy a phone immediatly
Andy, 20 Jan 2009N96 and 5800 i think more better is 5800... because it more cheap then N96 and the function i... moreplease don't even think of buying 96. It's the biggest flop in the history of nokia. If u have the money to buy 96 then i would suggestu wait for couple of months more and buy a true technological marvel n97. If u can't wait tha long then u should go for 5800.or 85 or79. all of them zre way better tan 96.
Amar, 20 Jan 2009How do U download and its fine.Can any body else to instruct how to download - please help wit... morei have never had any kind of problem with downloading and installingthe fikes. I have downloaded all of them and installed them even if i dont need them. Just visit the download folder from your phone and update the view which the phone would prompt automatically. Then just click on the files u wanto download. After completion ofdownload u click a place to save in the memory card as it has alot of free spaces. And voalla u r ready to go. After the completion of installation the phone will automatically prompt u to start the program or not. And thzt's it as easy as that. If u still have a problem then take ur phone to nokia care and throw it on the heqd of the head of incharge there for selling u a problematic phone!
aqib, 20 Jan 2009go for n96 if money is not the matter and go for 5800 if u like touchscreens Since the battery life of N96 is one day and it doesn't have qwerty , I think I'll choose the 5800 . Thx for your answer .
N96 and 5800 i think more better is 5800...
because it more cheap then N96 and the function is complate...that just my opinion..
zaheed, 19 Jan 2009well u need to download those sftwares from donload button in ur nokia phone! i have download... moreHow do U download and its fine.Can any body else to instruct how to download - please help with this process
rk, 20 Jan 2009zaheed bro !! :) wats up ?? ur phone is made in hungary ??? d 5800 here is made in china !!... morehey man! Thanx for asking! Ya everything is going fine here! I am relly happy with the handset, its awesome. By the mercy of God i don't have anyproblem at all, i have seen the chinese one, i dont know if its me or not but it looked old. And alot of complains coming from the users of the chinese versions,it also creaks while typing. Now to the typing msg topic The set is a great asset to type in. Most of my writing in here is done by it. And typing wes the main reason i sold my 2months old perfectly ok n79 for it. The full qwerty is a blessing, and its one of the finest and fastest thumbboard available in market,its even better than iphone's by mobile-review . Com. ANd the handwriting is lso great. The abc is as like a normal phone but the mini qwerty is totaly useless! But who needs that when u have the full one. Its really easy and fast to type here. But u need to get used to it. I am also a first time user of touch phones and it took me half a day to get used to it. Infact i love typing with it so much that i frequently write notes and keep it as a daily journal! Mine one made in hungary as uhave guessed it by now, please don't but the chinese one. In our coumtry the difference of price was 100$ in between the two but i still opted for the costlier but better Hungarian one as i read the reviews of the users of the chinese ones! I hope it helps u and wish u best of luck in buying this piece of gem!
Should I go for 5800 or N96 . I need a quick answer please ; of course with some arguments . I'd go for 5800 but I heard a lot about the ear speaker issue :(
the fact is "the more you spend, the more you get".if you really want a touch screen phone then plz try to get HTC.if you can't spend then get the 5800
zaheed, 19 Jan 2009congrats man! but did u get bose or the bluetooth headset????i did`t get blue tooth head sets
I got mine a couple of weeks back and i am really happy with it. I am however facing an issue with download. Everytime i go download it gives me an unrecoverable error and shuts down the application. I am able to browse the internet just fine otherwise. I guess some hanging download has corrupted something. Does anyone has any idea on how to rectify it.

Just got the phone yesterday for PhP 19,190 here in the Philippines ($400). The phone is really, really great! I don't regret buying it.
It has minor flaws, though (got the firmware v10) but it can be fixed by a firmware upgrade (v11 - latest). That's understandable since it was just released recently. Most nokia smartphones started with buggy firmwares, anyway.. nothing new about it.
I have to agree that the camera's not good but it's understandable it was not intended to be built as CAMERA phone but a MUSIC phone thus the suffix "XpressMusic".
The 5800's speakers are very very good (for a phone). Great bass and volume.
Of the four input methods, I still prefer to use the alphanumeric since I can compose messages faster with it. The other methods are still great, though, but slower (for me).
The phone's touch UI is responsive. You just need know and get used to the right amount of pressure so that the phone will respond to your commands.
THINGS THAT YOU MIGHT WANT TO KNOW BEFORE BUYING THIS PHONE:
Landscape Mode / Autorotate DOES NOT work in Standby Screen
There are only few available symbian applications as of this date that are compatible with 5800 XM. The phone may allow you to install them but there is a big tendency that the symbian app will crash once you start using it.
You will need to install v11 firmware (or the latest) right away so that the phone won't indicate "Expired Certificate!" when you install some symbian applications.
got the phone today :-). Gave it to many people to try. Guess what!!! everyone liked it. Nobody complained about the touch screen responsiveness, it was great.
All my colleagues admired the 5800. Will updated my experience in the next 3-4 days.
