I have to disagree with you guys a little. The phone is anything but durbale: mines covered in knicks and scratches on thw white plastic. And the screen is a b*tch to clean, and I'm constantly doing so.
sony phones are for the kids nokia phones are for the smart people 5700 is really great phone.
can someone tell me if nokia 5700 has any gps application a how it works 10q
Sorry I put the wrong link, its this one:
Hi guys and girls.....I've created a special section here, only for 5700 user/lover/fans...please join here:
It'll be realy nice.....thanks...:)
I would like to tell you that I have Nokia 5700 for three weeks. I faced the restart issue when I bought it, but I made a software update to it after one week, it worked very well so far.
No sudden restart happened to me since then.
I believe that if you updated the software using Nokia PC Suite, you won't face this problem again.
Have a nice day you all :)
What a great phone isn't it?
I just cant wait to feel it with my own hands...
But i guess this is the best phone I've ever seen so far
and about sony ericsons walkman better pack it on its box, about bad reviews the letdowns disadvantages i guess its the users initiative to overcome and maximize the phones potentials... Symbian is the FUTURE!
i wanna ask some opinions from u guys...
btw which sound system is better??
nokia 5300 or 5700??
which is better? 5610 or 5700?
i hav the 5610 but i think i want the symbian 5700 more,
Regarding the restarts, upgrade to the latest fimware. This will solve the problem partly. The upcoming firmware is gonna bring huge (i mean huge) changes so wait for it guys. This phone is much faster than n73,n80,n70,n72,3250,and other older symbian phone. Technically this phone is as good as n81. And guys ngage2 asphalt 3 demo runs flawlessly in nokia 5700. Gr8 job nokia.
Hey guys, just a quick question regarding the T9 predictive txt on this phone... is there a quick way to insert smileys into an sms message? Like a Sony Ericsson phone would be to press the number 1 quickly 2-3 times in succession (or was it the number 0? I forget...I'm using a QWERTY you see...)
And does this phone have emoticons you can use? :) please reply, thanks in advance! :D
@ metal_kid -
i respect ur comments if they are true ...
but are u sure it restarts after listening to music for one hour that i cant agree with cuz i listen to music 5 hours some days during my 3dmax & maya class periods i listen to music till i go home i never turn it off ... but it never restarts it plays music very smoothly nothing happens like sudden restarts ...
of course it heats up on the back but not that much ... u cant boil eggs in it ... (this phone is like a pc with a processor and ram inside it ...) i see it in many phones ... but it never restarts due to that reason ... i dont mean it has never been restarted it had been restarted about two days out of two weeks its a symbian phone so restarts are common ...
im using the twisting base many times a day and its being almost more than 4 or 5 months since i brought this phone the twisting base never got loosen up ... its still working perfectly ...
i think the rubber cover for the charging port usb port etc. is a great invention it keeps the dust away from those ports ... and only the needed headset input can be seen outside ... nokia had done a good job on it ...
i think nokia had done a great job making this phone the thing nokia wanted is to provide a good quality fast & balanced music and symbian capability phone i think they have been successful in it ...
Hello,to all...well this is the second time i am writing in gsm...i have been in this very old problem using nokia 5700 for 1month now..but whenevr i try some good fast operation it just restarts.. plz trult to every1...who can read all dis n understand this plz can u help me out.. n other thing is nokia5610 gud phone..operation is no doubt gud..loudness though low.. but ppl..who have seen used both the phones.. can u plz suggest..i am into clarity,battery n sound...plz.plz.plz.ppl do answer me...n if u cud mail me its firstname.lastname@example.org
i had this phone for almost 6 months now and it doesnt satisfy me when it comes to listening to music but it when it comes to surfing the net or using 2 or more program\games at the same time it doesnt fail... this phone has its downs and ups...
the bad things are:
-it often restarts, when you listen to music for more than an hour, like i do, it starts to heat up (even less than an hour) and when it reaches the maximum temperature it restarts, using music player with other program also makes the phone very hot, not only that, after it restarts sometimes it cant read the sim card, the phone heats up also by using the bluetooth for a long time which also result to restating, and sometimes out of no reason it restart due to a very hot environment.
-after twisting the keyboard to much it became loose, of course one of the greatest feature of this phone is its twisting keypad, i enjoy twisting this phone because i can go to the music player or camera at just one twist but after a couple of months i can feel that it became loose, of course i know that i will happen but i didnt expect it to happen that fast
-of course as we all know the battery doesnt last too long that means we need to charge it more often that means opening the rubber cap, after almost four months of using this phone i noticed that the rubber cap is already deformed, i really thought that this rubber cap is a good idea because it makes the phone really clean by hiding the threee holes but after all its just better off without it
-the camera lens eats alot of dust, i mean the package doesnt contain anything to clean this phone and when the dusts starts to pile up in the camera lens its almost impossible to clean unlike other camera phone that you can easily clean the lens in case there are dust in it
the good things thou:
-very fast phone it process everything in just secs. plus opening different programs at the same time will never ever give problem coz this phone doesnt know how to slow down
-best browser ever, anyone who loves to surf the net will love this phone surely, its even better than other n-series phone
