I have heard some good and some bad opinions, but finally do you all recommend me to buy this phone or not? Please reply.
Nokia 5800 has everything you could possibly want from a phone. I have my handset for 11 months now. Unfortunatley i am having endless problems with the phone. To list a few
1. cannot respond to sms at times ( keypad not responsive)
2. The phone hangs and needs to be rebooted ( I reboot 10 times a day)
3. the pictures are horrible compared to other phones
4. You cannot switch between applications at times.
4. I got a line which keeps coming and going on my display.
I think you get the picture. If the phone was more reliable it wil be perfect value for money phone....
Maybe i am just unlucky with the version i have... By the way updating with new frimware made no difference

venus-bangalore, 15 Mar 2010guys, plses smebody help me - how to resolve "menu: memory full.. please close some appli... moreI had the same problem,happens when you install too much of apps on phone memory or mem.card. There is a software named "batch uninstall" in Ovi store, free app. Download it , install and put it as a shortcut on the homescreen. Then you can uninstall unwanted apps from that with ease (can remove many @ once). Then use the normal app manager and remove other unwanted stuff. The 5800 is a good mobile, it's processor is underclocked to 192 mhz inorder to save battery power, though it can run upto 434 mhz. That's the reason, so only install useful apps. Good luck with your 5800 and enjoy it. Mine is perfect after that procedure. :D
for me,this is the best phone i ever had!in 5800,u have camera,video and internet access!what i love most about it is when you are using it as a web browser u just nid to click what u want to click unlike using other phones u will get bored pin pointing what you want to click by using nav.keys! You can also view it in a full screen view as if you are browsing your pc! The only problem is the stock memory card that comes in the package when u buy it is always corrupted!u stil nid to go to nokia care to replace it! And its battery? It only stays 1day when u always use it and 3days when standby mode. I just dont know how to soft/hard reset it! And when is the best time to do it?

1) Yes, it'll jus promt you that do you want to connect to wifi during offline mode
2) Yes, again but require 3rd party software like open office to do so and they usually cost but u can hack it with helloOX or somthn to get it for absolutely free
N5800 bro, much better than the e72
I am interested in buying the 5800, but I need someone to help on following to decide
1. Would the WiFi connection work for browsing internet like a normal PDA even if the SIM is non operational (i.e just in case I was out of station without roaming facility on my phone)
2. Can the user open and read (and work on) attachments such as Word, Powerpoint or Excel files
I would be grateful if someone could take the time and answer the above for me asap. THANK YOU!!!

guys, plses smebody help me - how to resolve "menu: memory full.. please close some applications..." problem.
i am frustrated!. it does show the messsage when i try to open apps even if i'm not running any aps. then, if i restart, sure to see a "white screen of death". no other way than removing battery & memory crd.
till yesterday i was recommending this phone to the people who ask. but now i recommend not to buy this crap. no use of hell lot of apps & features when phone itself doesnt work.
it really tortures!
notification to all v4****5 up-graders... your handset will require you to slide on screen to unlock the handset when answering calls and responding to alarms... the firmware is similar to the Nokia N97 except for home screen tilting, advanced home screen widgets and kinetic scrolling in main menus...
