this phone has no battery backup. it gets switched off automatically regrdless battery down. suggest not to buy this model
Should i charge the battery for a good 8 hours? just got the phone today and i was told to charge it for 8hrs straight. So far so good when i explore the function while charging it. Prety fast and neat for v30+ firmware. Going to dl the v40 soon. Hope all is good.

I visited Nokia care, it took hardly 15 mins to update to version 40.0.005
i want to buy this phone. i simply love it pls tell if i should go with it or not. and pls tell me after upgrading its screen touch is improved or not & can we change the homescreen as that of 5230 or not. pls reply pls pls pls!!
5800 latest firmware v40 is not hackable which is plain boring especially if you're into tweaking your phone and installing tons of apps and applying cool patches.

Parth, 28 Jan 2010My product code is : 0575590. Is nokia going to release v40 firmware or not? anyone got any in... moreIs your 5800 the US version? Mine is. The new firmware isn't available in the US yet.
Nokia USA needs to move faster...always behind on releasing new firmwares.
v40 are now available but not to all regions but will available soon. Flash lite 3.1 still in the download after update to v40 and also other older application.
My product code is : 0575590. Is nokia going to release v40 firmware or not? anyone got any info about it? i m getting frustrated knowing other 5800's have been upgraded.................
when you updated your firmware to 40 and go to SW update is flash lite is still there?
people, firmware v40 not drain your battery but it dual mode problem.change it to gsm mode.why?when you are out of coverage area,the phone will scan any available line either 3g or gsm.if you change to gsm mode,it will scan only gsm and not 3g.tell me how many of you using 3g or video call?i think 99.9 percent never use it.why?because not all of us can pay such expensive video call rate.mine already update to v40 and can use it more than 3 days.i've already give the tips how to conserve your phone battery.here another tip for wifi.
setting>connectivity>wireless lan>options>setting>show wlan availability(never)>internet connectivity test(never run)>options>advanced settings(yes)>automatic configuration(disabled)>tx power level(10mW)>power saving(you can change to enable or disabled but if you are watching youtube from the phone,disable it for faster connection-and it drain a bit battery)
Anonymous, 28 Jan 2010about video recording: change video quality to TV so it has the same size as camera mode. also... moremy Video recording setting is always set to "TV" mode!!
i even tried "sharing" mode..infact all others. bt no luck for me :(
"TV" mode is worst mode bt "sharing" mode is slidely better. not same as "Image" capturing mode's frame area atall!! ...
My phone has this problem. dnt know if ur phone is a good one!!
and ... sound quality?! Loudeness is not a good quality... bt yah its a plus point. and i didnt mean loudness!!
Listen to several songs comparing with n86 or n96 ... i hope u will find the difference too!!
thanks for ur concern!
OMG, i dis phone is perfect for a music lover like me.Its unique design style and TFT screen touch, gives u a fast finger during messaging. Thnks to NOKIA CORPORATION.
Yasin Shapan, 27 Jan 2010i brought it few days ago..! This is an excellent piece!! I jst like almost everything abt the... moreabout video recording: change video quality to TV so it has the same size as camera mode. also my 5800 has fm v40 and it's still hacked as i hacked it previously. hack is not gone. it's music quality has been improved and now it has no opponents there. maybe you think better music quality means louder sound?
i brought it few days ago..! This is an excellent piece!! I jst like almost everything abt the ph specially after v40 upgrade.
bt... except few things which r given below:
1. There is no option like ”mark multiple”.i have checked other nokia phones where there is the option. U have to go through the option everytime to have Mark several files. Nokia can give this feature anytime they want! bt they dnt!! ...dnt know why!!
2. Video Recording!! Whenever i goto "video" recording mode,the camera frames goes zoomed!! Which cant b zoomed out bt only in. U have to go too far to capture ur desired object properly.bt u would see much more in the frame when u r in "image" capturng mode. Maybe i cant explain due to my bad english.
3. Hmm.. The v40's contact menu in home screen!! They could make lil smaller than the current size! This way it could look much better & attractive! I think its jst nt suiting the homescreen. So i changed it to my phone's previous look!!
4. They could have separate gallery(or whtever they want to call it) for captured photos, saved images and for videos and as well as for the ringtones and songs Though there is a video gallary!!
It does nt feel good to watch all captured photos & saved wallpapers in same place!!
And same for the ringtones & audio songs.
4. V40 upgrade makes my 5800 battery to drain quicker than previous firmware version.
5. Finally XpressMusic!..the sound quality is soooo good. I liked it. Bt whn i use n86 or n96... I see they have better audio quality which just amazed me!!
Why they would call 5800 "XpressMusic" if they dnt have better quality than other N-series? Even if they add dedicated audio chip for XM series those r nt tht good comparitively!! Yah... I knw n86 & n96 is costly & its supposed to b tht way! Bt its jst a question!
Guys pls dnt kill me for my comment.its jst my opinion. U guys may find those nt so bothering! Actually im nt so bothered too, im happy with my mobile. I jst felt like raising these points.
***Posting this Comment again bcz forgot to add my name!! :D and solving some mistakes of previos post.
oh someone remind me that its nt hackable in v40!
Yah ... thats another point. Bt i am not much bothered abt this point. Bcz i dnt know much abt a hacked 5800xm yet.
Goodluck with Our 5800XM(s)..!!
Thnx a lot NOKIA for V40 ... ;) hope nokia releases more upgrades!!
