I have this phone for about 4 months and it's absolutely brilliant. it has all what I ever wanted. Best mobile phone ever!!!
Update from V21 to V30 has no such difference as expected.
1.Icons in call register fixed
2.Music quality is slightly changed,volume can be operated on screen without using volume keys.
3.A transparent sticker appears about the playing song,while music player is minimized & working with other application.I really love this new interface.
4.After OTA update no data is lost,even phonebook remains as before.
1.Its a small update about 4.6mb,i think this patch is only for some minor changes in music player.
2.No update to play avi,divx or H264 videos on real player,what everyone is eagerly waiting for.Smartmovie is not so smooth.
Its my own experience.I'll update this information later after using more.I really miss smartmovie,divx,coreplayer applications in this handset.Mp4 is good but they are not available online as avi.Nokia really has to do something about it.
I am using this handset for 8 months no such major problems i found on it.Sometimes screen is white and restarts,but its manageable,after all its typically nokia.
Fraz, 21 Aug 2009hi guys i just bought it yesterday. it hangs while using can any body help in this regardsTry not having too many programs open at once (holding the middle button displays what's open). Also, update your firmware if you can.

Hi guys.....i have this phone and there is something i want to know...i'm unable to get the updates of the software...i have the V20, but i have download an application from the nokia page to my PC and it seems that with it i can update my phone (i haven't try to do it). What i want to know is:
1) do i need to save the info of the memory of the phone before doing it???
2)If something happen, can i reset the phone version and get the V20 again??? If that can be done, how can i do it??
Thats everything, thanks
Fraz, 21 Aug 2009hi guys i just bought it yesterday. it hangs while using can any body help in this regardsNobody can help you. Thats just the way the 5800 is. Pulling the battery will fix the problem. The more often you use the phone, especially while moving and it performs handoffs or you use the net, the more often you will have to pull the battery. I've never had to do it more than three times in a ten hour period though. I sent it back to Nokia. We'll see if they can help. The phone works poorly on the V20 and V21 software, and they won't release V30 to U.S., probably another bad writing. I'm hoping the Sony Ericsson Rachael comes to U.S. and has good programming. Im done with Nokia.

I bought this phone 5 days. Great n amazing phone. Used to have E50 n E51, since E52 is out of stock, I grabbed XM 5800. Overall, it's great phone, but needs to have one touch access for messaging.. Like the access for multimedia, clock, calender n profile.. But overall its great n fun...

i bought 5800 yesterday from hotspot from rs 15010 but in retail pacage it was return nokia 5800 black nm1 and was written tv out is not compatible with this model, and didnt got carrying case extra stylus and mobile stand and in box it was also not written, has nokia stop giving them with 5800 or wat but touchscreen is great now but in audio my 5130 beats hell out of it.
I Am Definitely Gonna Buy This One
Please answer these questions
1. Is the touchscreen and UI really that bad?
2. Is the camera good?
3. how is the battery life?
4. Does it have Predictive text Input?
5. Should i wait for... perhaps the 5900 Xpress Music being Rumored?
I am just LOVING DROOLING over the POSITIVE REVIEWS this device is getting :)..... i don't care what anyone else thinks... this is definitely the best
