I updated my firmware to v30 and I must say the improvement is noticeable. I also read that a lot of people are complaining about files going missing and sometimes the phone restarting itself. This is due to the Ram and CPU not being able to run/update the data on the storage chip or memory card quickly enough. The reboot or tempory (hidden) loss of data is actually a security measure. That’s what I have heard from an cellphone technician in South Africa and this increases the duration lifespan of your software from corrupt files and data damage!
Remember this is a phone, not a computer. As with any other phone, it has it's limitations but I do see that Nokia makes the effort to try and fix the bugs with the firmware updates. I also read other of the top10 phones’ comments about their individual phones and I must say those 5800 problems are minor, compared to the other top range phones. We are really getting value for money with the 5800 and not to mention the tons of software, games and apps downloads from Symbian.

shashank, 04 Sep 2009hi i have a query and thought if you could answer..... if i buy this phone now and it... moreYes it will make you update straight to v30 from v10 by skipping v20 and v21. Even if v31 comes out it may take a while to be available for your product code. so I suggest you do the update without waiting for v31. I'm still on v21 and still not even v30 is availabe for my product code.
pogi, 03 Sep 2009hehe.. The package here in the philippines is still complete.. But my brother's was from dubai... moreAh yea even I got the same error message on my E71 sometime back. I couldn't figure out the actual reason. I tried removing the application which were installed in the memory card as well as the installer files. Then installed everything again but didn't copy the installer files. The problem got solved. Try it and let me know mate.
My 5800 was bought in Australia and even I got all the content as well. It must be really disappointing for the newbes to see that their retail packages are empty...I'm surprised by this...
just wait for v184.108.40.206 to come out
hi i have a query and thought if you could answer.....
if i buy this phone now and it has v10 firmware then should i update it directly to v30...?
will that fix all the bugs that the previous updates fixed or do i update it one version at a time...?
The battery on the 5800 is outstanding. Since i charged this phone i have been playing around with it & making calls text messaging and it has lasted me 5 days without a single bar gone so far. Quite impressive.
Will I need to download Opera Mini onto the 5800? Or has it got something like that already? Has it got something like a flash player as well?
