[deleted post]1.samsung monte not a smartphone its a feature phone so the apps only depend on java apps.
2.5800xm not the best touchphone out there but it have a complete features,more than samsung monte.
like tv-out,handwriting recognition,landscape qwerty virtual keyboard,free nav with ovimap,it can share connection via wifi to other phone or pc,full accelerometer not like monte,and capable to use with symbian apps and java apps.
the minus vs monte are :
-5800xm using resitive type screen
-it is lag but after v50 firmware it is a little bit better,or u can cook ur own firmware like mine.
-image gallery always populate the thumbnails so it is lag in here,but u can use other apps.
-it is hang quite sometimes before update it to v50
other than that 5800 is a better choice from monte.
if u buy it and upgrade the firmware to the lastest,it will be enjoyable.
almost everything u need can be solve by using other apps or CFW.
5800xm may not be the best smartphone and it is alot better out there but it is value for ur money.

Dont use PC Suite mode to copy files to phone - choose Mass Storage, Media or Image transfer. Good luck!
I want to ask anyone of you in this forum.
Why i cannot view my image or video in my handphone(gallery folder) after copying from laptop? Im copying these format. jpeg,gif,swf,mp4,3gp.
I only can view those files under 'application", then "file manager" and "memory card".
Do i have to do this everytime i wan view my files?
Help needed. Currently using ver50 .
I love this handphone so much, because its my 1st touch screen handphone.

[deleted post]Nokia 5800 is better than Samsung Corby Pro ..
This phone rocks ..
Had this phone for 6mths & can't wait for upgrade to get rid of it. Worst phone I've ever had (& I've had a motorola...) Internet is rubbish, it crashes all the time & I have to take the battery out to restart. + the phone crashes for no reason in call, in my pocket, whenever its feeling stroppy. And, if you take the battery out, it fails to keep time so I'm forever changing the time! Rant over, but if you are thinking of buying one of these, really really dont.
Why my 5800 xm says it has 192 MHz processor using X-plore ? guys please answer

blank code, 09 Jun 2010this hp does not support n-gage..why??because n gage only compatible with s60v5 with control keyboard n not support touch...
5800 can support n gage but u must hack your phone n use virtual wireless controller patch for second phone.
The camera is not at all bad to take photos during daytime. Even at night close range Photos are possible but they are griny. But like I said, if there is enough light (even indoors) the quality is good enough to print in normal size and more than enough to post on facebook.
