Love the phone. Got it cheap too (AU$350!), however I'm having a little problem. Can't seem to edit pictures. When I select an editing option it just returns to the preview of the picture. Any one else have this problem?

In reply to the guy that cannot send sms. I think what you should do is got to settings->personal->profiles->then select general. Hope that helps. The problem that I'm having with my 5800xm is that when I save mp3s/songs on the phone. some of them just DONT WORK! It really is frustrating. Will be very appreciated if someone could help me
hey winura,i just got the nokia 5800. Didnt have any problem for now. But if it does,i will ask you. Do you have an email address or something? its hard for me to get in to gsm everyday.. By the way, i am from UK.

First try contacting your operator and then if it still doesn't make an improvement go ahead and claim warranty.
Just try going to your text message settings and check whether your message center number is properly saved.

Just to let you know, your comments and suggestions are the reasons why Im getting this mobile.
I have my N95 for almost 2 years now, It's one of the best mobile I ever had (less the battery life, but it's partlyh my fault), and later tonight, I'll get a 5800XM.
I really really hope that I will be satisfied with this mobile. I know and have already accepted that the camera (of course) isn't any better. I personally want to have a touchscreen mobile, after weeks of hanging out at GSMarena, I decided to get this one. And the ONLY reason why I chose this over the S8000, S8300, Arena etc. is because of the battery life. A very simple fact but is most important to me. ^_^
So maybe after a week or two, I'll tell you guys how I feel about the 5800. And I am really hoping to write a review on how satisfied I am.
KceeGee, 20 Jul 2009Just a few questions, Ive been reading the posts but haven't read any tips about this...
An... moreYes the initial charge does matter. you should drain the stock charge before you do the initial charging. First it should be charged for 8 hours straight with the phone switched off, use the phone until the battery is completely dead, give it another 4 hour charge with the phone switched off, use the phone till the battery is dead, charge it again with the phone switched off for 4 hours.
You shouldn't charge the battery while the battery is half full and also you shouldn't leave the phone plugged in all night. The battery will be fully charged in less than 2 hours and just unplug it soon after that.
Using too much of brightness on the display is also a reason for poor battery life experience...
Just a few questions, Ive been reading the posts but haven't read any tips about this...
Anywho, MOST said that their battery life lasts about 3 days... and some said 1-1.5 days... and a few said just 1 day. Im just curious, maybe this is an issue with the initial charge?
I just MIGHT be getting a 5800XM later (can't wait to get off work!!)
So just to ask, do you have any charging tips for the initial charge? Like how long should it be? should I drain the "stock" charge for charging? or any battery-care tips?
My N95 gets charge everyday because I think did not care for the battery properly.. >_< I dont want that to happen again.
5800 user, 20 Jul 2009wrong info. it does not have LED flash.Yes not single LED it has a DUAL LED flasher.

But why would anyone possibly want to buy a 2G phone? Coz its cheaper? To save a few bucks? The bugs in the firmware will eventually be fixed with the updates.
from my experience... great value for your money. the only thing is that the camera is not that good at dim or dark places... Nokia should get a better technology of their cameras.
