I am using my new 5800XM for two weeks now. I have subscribed to a GPRS data subscription from my carrier. I have opted to pay a flat rate instead of billed on usage. Yesterday I downloaded the Google Maps. It is working great. One thing which is confusing me is that it also shows me "My Position" which is very precise. I am surprised because I have not subscribed to any GPS service here, rather there is no GPS service provider in my country. But the GPS information is very very precise. It connects to many satellites (at times up to 9 or even 10), and then as I move it keeps on updating the position almost instantly!!!. I am confused that from where it is getting this real good GPS information???? Esp when I have neither subscribed to any or even more confusing that there is no GPS service provider around. Can someone help me with this riddle. I just dont want to receive a good big bill one day from somewhere :).

This is REALLY an outstanding phone,everything about it is impressive... there is one issue though that threw me for a complete loop,the bluetooth chip within the phone is complete garbage,one can barely make out what it says back to you when you're trying to call via blue tooth! I had a 4 year old RAZR and it blew this Nokia 5800 away for clarity, no comparison at all.
I expected a lot more from a company like Nokia when it comes to blue tooth technology, and they sure disappointed me . The text to speech that comes with this phone gets 1 out of 10 from me!
Also, it has major issues recognizing names in your contact list and 9 out of 10 will tell you "contact not found" and dials someone else's number.
Here in Toronto it is now law to use hands free blue tooth while driving, so this is pretty important feature for me; the one most important feature I was counting on that completely let me down.
I have taken these concerns about this phone with my service provider and they finally agreed to replace this phone with another identical unit, and also told me that if I am not completely satisfied with the new model they will offer me a choice of any other phone, including any Blackberry they carry at no cost to me.
This Nokia is not exactly a cheap phone, offers a huge array of features that all work amazingly well, but when it comes to it's "voice recognition technology" it's a complete fail!!!
Anonymous, 11 Nov 2009Update our phone software to v31. If ur phone now under warranty, give to nokia care, for updateI don't think thats possible coz I'm in the Philippines and I heard that v31 is not availbale yet in our country. Would suggest me to update my phone to v21 instead so I'll be able to use the photo editor?
Im confused. Why do they sell it to people if the photo editor or other applications wont work properly?
