I am answering ur qn coz i too got the phone only on diwali. Sentimental point...
I faced all those problems..
Answwer is simple.. all are software problems..
1. Install all ur software ONLY in mem card.
2. Remove mem card and start.
3. And for shortcuts and dialer missing on front screen (temp soln: u can get them by pressing the green button on any screen other than start screen)
u need to hack ur phone using helloox.sis and u need to access to your C:\private folder in the phone. There are softwares that cando tht... (I have done it 4 5 times now.. simple) Just google it.
4. To install all these software, u need to sign them urself. Get your own developer certificate giving ur imei at some forums... Again google search on how to sign apps.
I hav only shown u the direction... its upto u to search for solution if u really WANT to know ur phone more.
FOR ME, THIS PHONE HAS NEVER LEFT ME BORED, EVEN AFTER 2 MONTHS, which is VERY GOOD. For all my previous phones, everything becomes familiar and boring after 3 DAYS!!!!!!!!
after reading opinions from 5800 users, i'll just buy the n97mini instead

OMG I hate Nokia to the bones.
I am not an apple Fanboy, you can look at my previous post on this thread. The first two weeks I had used the 5800. I loved it before. Really loved it, but it did not love back.
I hope Nokia will do a much better job on the rumored new symbian OS or MAEMO but until then... I will not go back to Nokia.

Other than that, Nokia wasted my money.
I have been a Nokia Nseries fanatic for a long time. I had the N90, N93, N80, N73 ME and N95. N95 suited me fine for 1.5 years. Then I thought of changing my phone because even if the N95 is good, I felt left out the "New Gen" mobiles.
I thought of getting another N series mobile, by that time N96 was on top. But when I saw its UI, it's basically an N95 with a different cover on. Searching the Net and GSMArena, I felt that touchscreen are now the "in" thing. So I looke at a lot of options from Samsung, LG and Nokia. Mind you, I didnt even looked at the iPhone because I was disgusted by it's high price and mediocre functionality. So I settled with a Nokia 5800 XM (Nokia Fanboy all the way), It was good the first two weeks... I downloaded appls and games, installed music and videos. Then it crashed, deleting all apps and messing with my Music. So I thought hey, maybe a minor thing. After that, it crashed 5 more times. I had to do all sort of things just to be able to use as intended. Then after awhile the battery life drained down from 2days to 1 day. So hell? then the UI is acting crazy slowing down and all, cant even text smoothly. So i said Sh*t, touchscreen UI s*cks shouldve stayed with my N95.
Then, I saw my friends iPod Touch, and saw TONS of application there. He explained how the functionalities are being compromised by the APPS. and hell, It was a hell lot of apps compared to the 5800s (and the 5800 apps mostly don't work or fugly as hell). So I gave my away my N5800XM and got myself an iPhone.
Getting an iPhone is a decision I will never regret it is really one best mobiles out there. And I can see why it had started a TouchScreen revolution. It's not perfect but it's close.
