Through Nokia Updater it will be more than 50MB.
Directly by mobile it is less than 10 MB.
During the update don't remove the USB cable & keep the PC ON if the update is stopped in middle it may damage your mobile.
Easy way go to a Nokia Care they will do the update.

As for changing the font size it can be done. Go into 'settings' then go in 'display' and click on 'font'
Although, 'large' font still isn't large enough i assume.

hi guys, are there any popular nokia forums where we can further discuss diff topics on this phone, share contents, etc?
I have this phone for 4 months now and I love it...except one thing...THE 4 CONTACTS BAR...this is just stupid..5800 has a wide screen and there are only 4 favorite contacts with only their pic...and the nokia 5630 XM wich has a smaller screen has more than 5-6 favorite contacts and with their name under the pic...why NOKIA didn't make the same for the 5800 XM ???? this is just stupid...I hope the future firmware updates will include this feature...really !!!!

Leonardo, 23 May 2009Why not buy it?
First of all, I am a hard user, I do explore all available resources and po... moreIf you can name me one phone in the market right now that can do the following that the 5800 xm can do for the price that you can get the 5800, then you have yourself a valid argument:
wifi, gps (garmin), touch screen, proper internet surfing, 8 gb memory, loud (very) speaker.
I am just mentioning the main plus points. Because no one will take the time to read long nonsensical posts. Just realize that it is a best seller for a reason. Simple formula, cheap price, tons of features. If you really need to whine, then go ahead jump on the iphone bandwagon or spend a fortune and go for the idou (but it is still using s60v5)
my 5800 software version is: V 11.0.009
is there a newer version ? and how to update please ?

Plese revert back for any more clarifications.. thnx..
Hey guys.. any idea what is the size of the update for this fone ? and does it affect the fone ? i mean all the options and everything i edited on my 5800 , does the update format it ?
Is the nokia ovi map beta available for 5800???
I checked the site but it says only s60v3 fp1 & fp2. No s60v5. Its so weird coz it says that the beta version is introduced as a preview of the nokia maps3 preloaded on the n97. Yet its not available for 5800.
I m confused.
To those who complain about having PHOTOS and VIDEOS in the SAME FOLDER, follow these steps....
1. Download & install 'photo browser' from nokia betalabs.
2. Go to menu-options-organise, then drag your gallery folder and put it in applictn folder.
3. Now go to application folder and drag the 'photo browser' icon and the 'video center' icon in the root folder.
BANG!!! Now whenever you open your menu, you will have photo browser icon for fotos and video center icon for videos. Who needs the gallery anyways, you will need it only for editing/transfering your fotos/videos.
And the foto browsing software has some HEAVY graphics. You all will love it. Learn to customise your fone. After all symbian is all about customising your stuff.
