after signing with tmobile, i guess this smartphone's 3g signal isn't compatible with them. it only provides the edge signal.
I asked a tmobile rep why??? the answer I got is because it isn't made for tmobile. Att's signal is better, providing a 3g signal for non att smartphones.
Now, will this smartphone's 3g signal ever be compatible with tmobile given the fact that the nokia 5230 or nuron is being release by tmobile???
I may have to go back to att so the full potential of the signal can be use.
Does anyone can help me to where can i find or tell me links to install a anti virus in my 5800 theres have been antivirus to my cellphone untill now i cant find ways to remove it??

It is good (though not excellent) Takes good snaps in daylight & average snaps in night/low light.(change to night mode) Takes great videos too in good lighting. what more do you expect?
Dont mix your phone needs & camera needs. Dont race for megapixels. look at the photo quality. MPs define only the printable size of photo, not the quality. quality depends on the image processing s/w, hardware/ lens etc. Even the best mobile camera cant match the dumbest digital camera bcoz mobile cam tecnology is totally diff from digicam in terms of their lenses & hardware like image stabilization/autofocus/scene detection etc.
curious, 09 Mar 2010So how does the majority thinks of N5800xp music?
A great buy ? Give some straight answers. T... moreIt is a gr8 buy. U need to bear with some freeze & hangs though. Feels a bit unstable to me (unlike typical nokias which well known for stability & reliablity). i havent seen many smart phones, but it is certainly better than my cousin's Asus windows phone which hangs for every day!. (this is better, in an average i can say it hangs once or twice in a week ;-) LOL). But its really an irritating problem. yiu have to pull out the battery & memory card then start the phone. push the mem card after it boots, wait for it to fix mem card, wiat until its ready for usage. totally its 10 mins job & when you are in hurry, it really sucks!.
but all other features are lovable. -
Battery life:- is excellent for any average usage. (new phone-1st charge should be 8Hrs & it needs 5-6 dis-re-charge cycles for the battery to come into rhythm.
Apps:- excellent apps avialable most of them free/ trial/ limited/ sponsored. but some of them are paid/to be subscribed. However, for me only free themes/wallpapers/apps are sufficent.
GPS Navigation- Good. Maps lifetime free. GPS nav i haven;t tried.
Music:- excellent!. capable media player. good sound quality on a good quality earphones. the nokia earphone supplied with phone is pure bul*sh*t; scrap it! & buy a good sony/ sennheiser/bose whatever ) on TV/Audi out, u can listen music on any speaker/tv.
Video- Good. but not so impressive as phone struggles with big files. u shud wait patiently , shud not load it with several clicks. i.e. dont open/close/back/ too many videos at a time & when video is played, dont open many apps. if done so guaranteed that phone hangs & sucks!, on TV out video is fairly enough for short clips. little blur, so watching full movie may lead to headache.
Phone: basic need is a cell phone & it does good in its job. However UI is not mature like iphone/samsung/htc etc. full of inconsitancies in the menus & UI. but manageable, not too ugly. Build quality is average. platicky & not rich looking. but for the cost, it is fine.
Touch screen sensitivity is good, though not the best in class.
Wifi :- gr8 job!. connecting is so easy. but the built in browser is not so mature. so is Opera mini (free download). Still in search of a good browser. sceen is too small for browsing. get pain in eyes after 10mins of browsing.
All in all - a middle class "value for money" phone. You will love it if you arent bothered by "not so stable" Symbian OS on it. Though it meets your need for now, its certainly not a phone for future. You can use it for couple of years & then change. since you will be bored then... bcoz smart phone industry is becomming focus of every mobile & computer mfgs. Lot of innovation & growth happening. things become obsolete so soon. so, go & grab now. Enjoy till you get bored or satisfied
