I am an unfortunate owner of Nokia 5800. From the first day I was unsure about the claims of the salesman and I did the wrong decision to go for this phone instead of a HTC. It's really very slow at times, not reliable as I have to get the first handset replaced after a black out threw me out of work for almost three weeks. Thanks to the unfriendly and adament behaviour of Nokia customer care which never replaced the second handset after it started giving me problems in net connectivity due to a burnt USB port. No respite inspite of the money wasted in the extended warranty. I still curse the day when I purchased this handset and above that salesman who in order to make money gave me a headache for so long.
Never go for this troublesome piece of electronics If looking for a good touchscreen handset then I recommend HTC and in high range it's iphone.
a very nice phon....haz everythin nd iz best 4 teenagers lyk us....
Thanks for reply but dnt know ur name..anyway tnx again! Kind of start to like ds phone. So touchscreen unresponsve issues can be solve thru d latest firmware V50 right?

1. Yes, there are 2 programs that run Skype on 5800.
These is a skype app for 5800 that allows Voice calls
Even better than this is the Fring app. It allows you to use your Skype account to connect to other mobiles with Fring and to Skype accounts on Computers. It Provides both Voice and Videos Call. The video calls are pretty good actually. I use this daily to make cheap IDD calls. Sometimes I use the TV- out to plug the phone to the TV so that I can make Video calls on the big TV.
2. Touchscreen is very good, specially after firmware V20. V50 brings Kinetic scrolling thoughout the system so it is even better.
