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?

Do u knw how to disible cam sound ?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Its a software problem. Update your fone yourself. Or take it to nokia care. They will do it for free.
frenki, 12 Nov 2009in the case of now.. yap thats true.. coz nokia has not yet said that they will be create late... moreThis is the case with every firmware. Not all the product codes get the updates at the same time. This is done to control the traffic on the update sites. So the software is made available for specific product codes, one at a time.....but at the end, all users get to update.
sweety, 12 Nov 2009hey, v31 is available through OTA...it's not yet available through NSU. I'm happy I can now up... moreThat's great news, thank you. But it's still showing no updates available in my fone. just a matter of days i guess. :D
Anonymous, 10 Nov 2009hi, can anyone tell me which is better? this samsung preston, nokia 5800xm or nokia 5530xm?? ... moreHi. I just bought a brand new 5530xm, and it's quite worth the money. Well, this one has a slightly better camera ( with carl zeiss optics ), your battery will last longer than the 5530, this one has 3g technology (witch may prove practical) and it has maps.
I got the mobile a few days ago,and several times when i unlock the mobile,the screen goes un-usual for a few seconds then the home screen shows well!!
But that happens several times not always!
What's going on ?! =S
Something like that couldn't happen to a mobile that's bought a few days ago!
Plz tell me what's going on,and what shall I do ?! =S
Nokia 5800 its the coolest phone that your hand can take.!! One thing i like of thhis phone is the way u can access to every menu and so..
One question, can limewire be install in the phone? plis help
ppl, donot get confused btwn 5800 n N97. Both r way diff specs. 5800 is a xpress music n think thrice on wt u really need. U cant compare phones as such, every phone is distinct. Btwn I hold 5800 n i love it. Whether it gets kinetic scrolling r not i like it coz i was clear abt its specs while buying it n kinetic scrolling is least of my worries.
@mike, language is just for ammunication. N thr is nothing wrong if u r bad in english n tats how u wil learn it. Cheers pal.
Guys don't be confused and paranoid. v31 is available in India. Just go to Nokia Care and they will upgrade ur phone. Try to help out others instead of spreading rumours.Btw whoever you are, good english itself doesn't make good discussion. Remember English just one of the many global languages.
