5800 XM Tips and Tricks
1) To bring out the Shortcuts on your Screen/Desktop-> Settings/Personal/Home Screen/Home Screen Theme and select Shortcut bar, you can then select which shortcut to display if goto "Shortcuts". This will also bring out the "Track" playing being displayed when you open the Music Player.
2) Tap the Clock to bring out the Clock menu and make your alarm, alarm repeat is now built-in.
3) Tap the "General" or Date (the set Profile besides the clock) and the Profile selection menu pops out, almost similar to pressing the "Power" button in all S60, but here the Remove memory is not shown, but "Calendar" shortcut is included and the other profiles as well.
4) If you are on the Numeric Keypad, pressing the [#] key alternately will toggle the General and Silent Profiles, same as before, which means long press on zero  will bring out bookmarks for the Web.
5) Tapping on the displayed To do or Calendar entry will bring you immediately to that particular item.
6) Tapping the Active Icon on the Top Left (near the battery indicator) will give you shortcuts for any of the active icons.
7) Long press on the Green Call Button will still activate the Voice Command Prompt
8) Long press on the center button is similar to the Long press on the "Menu" key (the yin-yang key on most S60) which will bring out the menu for all the active applications.
9) Go to Applications/File Manager and setup "Backup" for automated backup schedule of your phone data.
10) Get the Red one and partner it with the Red Nokia BH-503 Bluetooth Stereo Headset for an awesome sonic experience!

This phone is not yet available in the US market, however, I've seen two cellphone store so far that has this model. The J&R store in NYC has this one on display. I've looked through its menu. I really like this phone. I want one, just that it's a bit pricey. Another store was in NJ. I was actually browsing through it yesterday.

Made by Mokia=Made in China. Some quality issues may arise!
No Made in Finland Period! When I said Made by Mokia, I used that term explicitly to signify the quality of the phone! I found some Made in Hungary at one of the stores. Tested it. The menu is cool, responsive, not that responsive, maybe because of my fingers. Using a stylus: taking it out, putting it back-can be painful. The materials used do look a little bit cheap! No offence please, but it is nowhere near Nokia Black N95 8GB. Speakers are good! Overall, a cool phone, first touch-phone from Nokia! The price is high, though-400 USD. My suggestion-go ahead and buy it. Will not regret it!

lol, I dont understand this discussion where the phone is made.... Most of the electronics is made in China. I wonder where the Iphone is made. Well pretty sure that it is made in China....
Mushin. The proximity sensor recognises when the phone is put against your skin (ear). When doing so the sensor shuts down the display and deacivates the touch screen. No extra foils/stickers on top of the sensor.
can any one tell were can i find divix player or core player which is comapatiable with nokia 5800 or any other similar player which can play .avi format file
chinese industry are much verry important than the hungary one so dont hesitate and buy the chinese one there s no problem with it
Hi i am a promoter for this phone at one of the shopping malls in dubai and i had my training at nokia's office in dubai so what they told me is that this model comes only made in china and if u found some in the market made in finland then the salesmen lied to u what they do is they just put a sticker on the box made in finland but the pnone is still made in china so its ur decision to buy it in the market like nasr square or in authorized dealers.
