I got this phone a week ago. very very impressed with its features and responsiveness. got version 21 and updated to v31. Garmin works very well, only you have to set map details to normal. very quick sattelite receiving. But one day ago the problems showed up. for 2 hours my wife tried to call me but the phone didn't ring. When she told me, I restarted the phone and it showed no signal. After two more restarts is stopped working and didn't open at all. Turned into a brick. I tried everything, inluding flashing with Phoenix and v31 firmware but nothing. Still dead. Sent it to service today, and I'll come back with solution. Nokia was the best phone company but now is the last time I get a Nokia. Next time I'll get a HTC...

jae, 10 Dec 2009am from the Philippines. I also had the same problem on my 5800 XM re: SMS not being sent. It ... moreproblems about messages not being sent and stays in the outbox might be because of intermittent 3g signal.. turn off your 3g and just use gsm people.. specially from the philippines..
There is absolutely no problem with touch screen , the lag you see is bcos of the Op System and RAM memory which makes the touch unresponsive sometimes.
Tv out cable i bought it on ebay india for Rs.250/-
, Original and it worked well. (CA-75U)
I bought the Original Stand and Pouch for Rs.300/ in eBay india. (Nokia CP-305 Case & DT-29)
Yes, if you dont have that "Tv out mode not supported " in your box , then tv out will work for sure. Nokia company has played a game to swindle some money during sep 2009 period.
If you are not able to see your newly added music files even after refresh library. No need to format the memory card. Dump all the songs in main folder instead of folder wise. then do a refresh all songs will be detected. Nokia music player was not able to refresh tracks if they are stored in separate folders. ( not always but this issue may be seen often ).

jae, 10 Dec 2009am from the Philippines. I also had the same problem on my 5800 XM re: SMS not being sent. It ... moreits not a phone problem, its the network traffic, it happens to me also and im using n95 8gb.
Foofie, 10 Dec 2009should i choose Nokia 5800 Expressmusic or Samsung Star wifi? Which one is better? Go for the 5800XM - it's got GPS. That's not included in the Star 3G. But the touchscreen on the 5800 is resistive type - which means it's not very responsive. Other than that, both are good phones. I think the voice call clarity on Star 3G is better.
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2009Guys,is there any sportstracker app. available for this pione?i tried the 5th edition versino ... morehave you tried to install it to the memory card?

It ... moreoh, and btw, i got the complete package which includes the TV-out cable, the stand, extra stylus with the plectrum on a lanyard and the PC suite with the USB cable. but my phone doesn't sync with the PC suite so still, it is of no use.
am from the Philippines. I also had the same problem on my 5800 XM re: SMS not being sent. It only sits in my outbox and would try to resend it every now and then but would not send at all. The only solution to my problem: doing a hard reset. I lost all of my contacts, messages and almost everything on my phone! I had always loved Nokia but with this kind of issues, I might just get a different handset.

I am facing problem in viewing the youtube on my mobile after updating it ota.
The video stucks after 10 seconds whereas the timer keeps on moving.
if any 1 knows how to rectify the error kindly leave your message with the solution.
thanking in advance
Guys, for this of you who have trouble updating your phone to the latest firmware, you can download any firmware version and install on your phone.
Just such a Brilliant mobile to use ,the phones so simple to use, an this mobile as sold well,but i wish Nokia would have put a 5 mega-pixel camera on this mobile,The Speakers are the Best i have ever had on a mobile slighty better than my N95 8gb ones,also i have changed my Front an Back of my 5800 to Red an it looks Magic,the Front cover comes off so easily so having my mobile a Red an Black its Amazing,i wish Nokia would release the 5800 in different colours,so you do not have to change your front yourself,i prefer the 5800 to the N97 as the sliding keypad makes the N97 a bit Broader an heavier,hope we do get a Metal Version of the 5800 released as the PLastic cover is the only bad side of the 5800 making it scratch an mark easily,i bet loads of 5800 will bought for Xmas presents
