Free Nokia lifetime navigation software available for this version. v40 available in india via nokia care. Just tell them that ur phone is slow and hangs, they will update the firmware for free to v40 :)
Wassup everyone, I have been using this phone for quite some time now and I have to admit, this is one gem of a phone. Sound quality rocks, its really awesome, throw away the cheap and useless Nokia bundled earphone and invest in something good and substantial to see the result, its mind boggling. Camera is decent but not great, a bit letdown considering that it was supposed to be a multimedia giant. Phone does hang sometimes, however, it has been a hereditary disease for every Nokia phone; so nothing unexpected over there as well. Watching videos on this cell phone is an eternal bliss. Its unbelievably great, if you are looking for a great multimedia phone and not allergic to touch screen functionality, your search ends here. Right now, this phone is dirt cheap in all parts of the world and the software that are available for Symbian os v5 are increasing by day. Go ahead and buy this baby, trust me you wont be disappointed.
I have a problem with the phone - NO -. You are a problem and see if you can solve before and not blame the phone.
For all those who know nothing of the phone and give their opinion about them - quiet -. And do not install all the weeds in the phone.

i am thinking of getting 5800 but the feedback is almost all negative, is that true?? i need to know whether to get it or think of another one..
This phone is by far the most awesome phone ever developed... I've been using this phone for 11 months now, and have experienced absolutely no problems. With the new firmware available, the phone gives an amazing experience that even I hadn't experienced with this very phone. A must buy I must say... This is coming from first hand experience... I'm simply in love with it.
