I bought refurbished nokia 5800 xpress music in ebay. All features are working but wifi option i cannot find any where. I bought this phone for wifi only. Please help anybody.I could wait for your reply.
There are some remarks and advices after using this device for 6 years :) :
The camera is awesome.
FM radio bug (hanging when zapping from the last to the first radio station and you need to retart the phone).
GPS not disconnecting immediately especially when used for geo tagging.
Cannot disable data connection especially when using whatsapp, until activating offline mode (problem of discharging battery ) or installing a third part app (NetQin).
Video recording in H263 (poor quality in low light condition).
always turn off (exit) the camera to avoid the battery discharging (the battery becomes very hot and the phone is suddently turned off).
Resistive Touch Screen (hard to answer calls when the phone is locked).
All nokia symbian phones are very best gadget forever. But creating apps for symbian phones were welded continued.Like xodo,facebook messenger,whatsapp,instagram,twitter.They become old.

Also tried to find fw from Cellomania with no luck. And Phoenix etc. are quite useless without firmware file....
