I find my audio quality is pretty good. It comes with a halfway decent headset so that helps as well.
So no real need to purchase any extra buds?
Also does the phone have a software equaliser?
Depends what you prefer. I personally find the buds that sit just in your lobes from any manufacturer hurt my ears after five minutes. I use Sennheiser CX300II in-ear buds and they're brilliant.
Bit of help again please
Trying to get email to work, seems a very tricky thing to do and should be easy!!!!
Have a gmail account I want to use via my phone, I go to 'messaging', create new mailbox, pick the 'gmail' icon, enter my email address "firstname.lastname@example.org", push ok and it comes back with "unable to connect with info provided" doesnt get to stage of asking for password. Have tried hotmail, same problem, made sure was connected to internet first, same problem.
Getting anything sorted on this phone is such a real pain! The options and settings are just all over the place - not happy Jan!!
I am sure I am doing something wrong, but cannot figure out what it is.
Finally found the answer!
Seems if I have message memory set to use the memory card, then the email setup won't work! That makes sense
Changed to use phone memory instead, bingo, set up and works perfectly
Only taken me a few months to figure out, was driving me crazy!!
Agreed! and they aren't all that expensive either
So through the 3.5mm jack is it any better?
My mum's dog chewed my stylus, cause it fell out of the phone. I've lost/misplaced the spare one too. Need to get some more off ebay i guess.
I'm probably going to buy before anyone replies to this, but just wondering if anyone has bought a replacement stylus/s from somewhere, or from a perticular ebay seller that they can recommend? Doesn't have to be original nokia stylus because the copies that i've seen look the same, and even have the nokia logo on it. But obviously i want something that is a perfect fit in my stylus bay.
I'd like to get a 3 pack.
I lost both mine (through drunken incidents) on the same weekend. Fingers are working fine so far though it'd be nice to have the option again. I tried the guitar pick and it was ridiculously clunky.
What are the different methods to update the firmware?
I have tryed the *#0000# method and It cant connect to the internet.
I cant find my USB cable.
What else can I do? Is there an install file I can place on the miniSD and then place in the phone and install the firmware?
Buy a new microUSB cable from DSE for $10
You don't need to buy one from Dick Smith for $10, if you've already got one for some other device.
I've got at least 1/2 dozen Mini USB laying around:
- Old digital camera
- Old portable hard drive enclosure
- New portable hard drive enclosure
- Desktop external hard drive
- Old mobile phone
- Other digital camera
- Divoom iTour10 portable speaker charger (still mini usb, will work for data i think)
Regarding the replacement stylus for the 5800; i bought some from ebay last night (well 3am this morning actually). I did a lot of searching for the best price and the best quality.
Here is what i bought:
5 x Stylus for only $3.30 delivered:
Or you can get 3 x stylus for only $2.20 delivered.
I thought an extra 2 stylus' was worth $1.10 more. In case i lose some.
I went through a lot of the feedback for this seller, and the quality appears to be really good, and also the seller in general. This seller has red & blue tinted, or black.
There are some others which are completely black, with no grey tip, which i don't like. Then there are ones with no Nokia logo on them. These ones i bought appear to be a pretty good replica, even though it says "original" i assume that they're not "original nokia".
Ahh, but the 5800 XpressMusic has a microUSB, which is different, as per http://img176.imageshack.us/i/razr2tourimg0847605sg8.jpg/
Most people nabbing these off the net and getting them delivered?
If I found someone selling them reasonably cheaply in Adelaide I'd probably go grab one today....
Oh yeah i forgot
Don't use usb with my 5800 that often.
Yeah, I got mine from Sydney when I was still in Adelaide
V40 software's nice, the way it automatically swaps text input methods when you rotate it is good, scrolling's much better too. Swipe to turn off alarm's neat.
Where from and how much if you don't mind me asking?
The software updater is only updating to v31, how do I get it to do v40?
You need to debrand your phone.
Network providers brand the firmware on the handsets they sell, and then when Nokia release a new firmware. Your telco has to get nokia to create the branded firmware for them, so there is a big delay from the time Nokia releases the new firmware, to the time new firmware is release for your branded handset.
What telco did you buy from?
Debranding your phone involves changing the product code of your phone to the generic Nokia firmware. Then when you connect to Software Updater you will get the latest firmware. Changing your phones product code will void your warranty. However, i believe it is worth it, and if you can change your product code back to it's original before you take the handset in for repair. Hopefully Nokia or your telco doesn't notice that you've got the latest firmware on your handset (which isn't avaiable for your original product code).
The process for changing your product code; i can't remember off hand. I or someone else may inform you.
