One more question
After I updated my phn with v21 , i m nt able 2 play music files that were already in d phn whn i purchased it. what seems to be the prblm and is there a solution????
I guess my previous post got deleted.
Please can someone please answer my question, on enabling the screen lock code.
How can i activate the lock code.
I have this phone for like a week now and i would like to share some facts here, specially with those who are planning to by it
Note that i am on the V20 firmware, because i think it is not wise to just update the firmware after buying the device. I am not going to go into detail of that.
It's a great phone, nice and handy
Display is very clear but under direct sun light it is almost impossible to view
Display Resolution is VGA good for web browsing & watching media
Poor indoor immage capture quality, very noisy. My old N73 used to capture much better images with the same 3.2MP
Macro/Close Up mode is just OK
Video capture is nice. There is an indoor mode which reduces the noise. There is a video light feature which is kind of useless unless you want to capture in a complete dark room. Overall it is very good.
If you are into playing games on your phone, i just have 3 words for you
Dont Buy It..and Wait for N97
Overall processing speed is good for the applications. Fast startup even with many 3rd part apps insalled. 128 RAM is around 50MB free after a boot. It is nice for a symbian phone to have 50MB ram free. N958GB also has the same RAM but 5800XM is much faster. The new OS uses the RAM effeciently
I advice all of you to install a Task Management 3rd party app for better ram management.
Web browsing is good. Youtube works well. Scrolling is a bit sluggish on a heavy page with losts of flash animations but it does well overall
Standard pages like Yahoo Desktop version gives you a feel like you are on a PC.
There is no Kinetic Scrolling like the iphone & HTC
n97 is going to fill that gap

Hi, I'm using this mobile since a week..It is an excellent mobile and awesome output while playing music..It has a wide screen and easily accessible touch pad..But it would be taking a long time to open the music player..Hence it depends on the size of files which you are feded in to the music library..!
It's finally a gud mobile..!

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, is an amazing phone i really like it to the MAX...it has all the features needed by end users.
I recommend this phone to everyone wants to enjoy the usage of his mobile phone....
Last Night I've successfully updated software Version V21 Over the air. NOKIA has done brilliant job there. Touch Screen is now working smoothly and got some new applications all together its BOSS:D:D:....anyone can update anytime through AIR but you must need high speed internet connection in mobile.
this hand set is too cool man :d.nice option created by nokia corporation .
Takumi, 18 May 2009excuse me...but how do you put a cell phone strap on this phone?? i've been trying to do it... moreYou will see the strap hole in the leftside bottom open the back cover then put inside the strap rope on it... sorry for my english...
I have my 5800 for 1 week now, its great, the sound is excellent, good camera, menu's are easy to use. But i just dont like texting coz the touch keyboard cant keep up, u also cant play mpeg/avi/divx files, only MP4 plays!! Those are the few things I dont like, but I'd choose this fone again :)
Great phone and the only thing i dun like is the unavailability of software and stuff for it
