I recently bought a second-hand 5800 XM with product code 0574326 and decoded to RM-356 MENA_D BLUE. I have the latest software 50.0.005 but the problem is I can't connect on UMTS network. I use the phone in Romania and RM-356 I think it should work here. Can anybody give me some advices ?
I logged on to the work wifi with my 5800 some time ago.Ever since I've had the phone I've struggled to get the Nokia browser to automatically connect to the Orange Internet (3G) access point.Instead it always prompts"Select Connection" and I have the options "Search for WLAN", "Internet" or "Uncategorised".Internet always used to be "Orange Internet" but now the default is "Internet - <my work> wifi".
This would be fine if I only used the phone for internet at work, but obviously I do not.Can anyone tell me how to put it back to having "Orange Internet" as the default, and ideally connecting automatically without the prompt.I've found under settings>general>accesspoint you can set it to either "Always ask" "Internet" or Uncategorised" but as "Internet" is currently set as my work wifi, this isn't an option.
I have updated my Nokia 5800 and ever since when I try to go on the internet via Orange it won't let me. I can't even use or set up Wi-fi. When I go into settings and connectivity there is no option to select or search for WLAN. When I try to add new access point it tells me that my network destination needs to be set first.Any ideas what I need to do please?
I lost network coverage signal 3 days back, the sim well working in other mobile. I did soft/hard reset etc but no success. Upaded latest software even. Went to Nokia Care centre, they were also not able to repair it.
I have a network problem with my nokia 5800 XM , i get no signal at all ..i go to settings - connection - network , and tried to choose network manualy (instead automaticly) but it cant, there is always the same message - no access..i bought this cellphone 6 months ago and i like it very much , so i want to continiue with using it..
I have a Nokia 5800, just updated firmware to 40 and map to the free v3.04. I don't have a data plan so a free GPS feature is a plus for me. I played around with it and finally got it to work. However, I checked my data usage just to be sure that I was offline. The bill showed that my phone was constantly checking with AT&T network during this time. The data usage was between 6k to 8k every few minutes when GPS was active. Does free GPS and map include turn by turn navigation? Is that what the phone was doing, getting turn by turn instruction from the network?
Hopefully someone can help me here. I have just received a brand new nokia 5800 chrome edition from T-Mobile. From what I can tell I think it's running version 31.0.101 firmware. One of the 1st apps I want to install is the BBC iplayer one. I browsed to www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer on the phone which prompted me to download the software. Downloaded and installed fine.
Now when I go to open the app it pops up with "Allow connection to network" message. I click ok it instantly connects via T-Mobile internet. As the iplayer only allows steaming via wifi (for t-mobile anyway) obviously this connection method is no good.
I have ready that RealPlayer basically controls the back-end of iplayer so I have turned the default connection in their to my wifi connection. Still does exactly the same thing (tries to connect via T-Mobile). I have also put the wifi as the deafult connection in settings>connectivity>destinations and it Still automatically tries to connect to T-Mobile internet with no other options.
I've unistalled and re-installed the app many times. I've also moved my WAP connections to their own seperate folder and just left the wifi as the main option, but still it tries to automatically connect using the T-Mobile WAP.
I've also tried putting the phone in offline mode and then opening the app but it just says connection unavailable in offline mode in an endless loop that is impossible to stop without turning the phone off.
This is really frustrating. All in all it seems like a great little phone, just a shame I'm having such trouble with the 1st app I decide to put on it!
If anyone can offer any help I would be most grateful.
I have Nokia 5800 since 1 year. It was working fine and battery life time was 2 to 3 days. Before 3 days, I was outside when my phone switched off due to battery run out. After 5 hours arrived my home and plugged in the charger and switched on the phone immediately.I was surprised when I found that the time is 5 hours back, it should be correct in new phones.Any way, since that time when I am trying to call any number, I am getting connection error and No network coverage alarms although I have a strong signal bar and 3G is persists.I had to restart my phone and I could make a call until it stopped again.Also I noticed that the battery is running out after 6 hours only.I tried many things until I solved the connection problem by changing the network mode from Dual to GSM and it worked fine but still the battery life time is around only 6 hours.Actually, I don't know what the problem is. Is it a hardware or software problem? I read many topics that soft and hard reset has no use. I upgraded Firmware to V 30 .0.011 since 7 months without any problem.No I am trying to recalibrate the battery and adjust its pins hopefully it will work.
i'm using a Nokia 5800 XM with the last firmware. i'm experiencing a problem, since nearly two months from now: when i go in Settings > Connection > Network Destinations and I click on "Internet", it won't open and it remains in the Network Destinations menu. I can open all the other items, but Internet won't open. I can only see that there are 17 destinations (I think most of them are Wi-Fi hotspots I used before).
My Nokia 5800 can't establish connection with WPA-protected home Ad-Hoc network.
I created such network based on my laptop wireless adapter and configured a WPA2-encryption for it. Then I found this network available via Nokia 5800 wlan-menu and tried to connect - this caused an error "System failure: function is not supported". So that Nokia smartphones support only open and wep-encrypted Ad-Hoc networks. WPA/WPA2 is enabled only for infrastructure mode. (But my laptop wireless adapter only supports managed mode, ad-hoc and monitor mode, so I can use only ad-hoc mode to set up home access-point. And I am sure I should use only WPA encryption for it, because WEP is vulnerable)
Maybe I can edit some configuration file in my Nokia device to enable WPA-encryption for Ad-Hoc?
If Nokia can enable this function in later versions of firmware?
I also will be very grateful if you recommend some symbian-applications which can enlarge wlan-functionality in my phone.
Having owned the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic for a couple of months or so, I must say that I really like the phone and it has great functionality.My main concerns/issues however are outlined below:
1. Facebook for Nokia app is slow, does not show all of the functions that m.facebook.com shows and isn't a homescreen widget (e.g. push notifications)
2. Communities app is even slower and again does not have the functionality of m.facebook.com and doesn't show notifications at all!
3. The Nokia Messaging app insists on connecting to 3G all the time, rather than a wifi connection when available. I've also experienced intermittent issues when trying to connect (sometimes it stays offline and even selecting 'Go online' doesn't wake the program up).
4. Default web browser keeps crashing and doesn't support larger websites (I experience intermittent crashes as well as memory issues). I do not receive such issues in Opera Mobile. I also dislike the defaulting to full screen mode all the time. If you turn full screen off, as soon as you navigate to a different page it goes back to full screen again, therefore increasing the activity on the phone and it takes longer to load the page before you can scroll or click another link.
I think I've covered all of my main concerns but in essence this device really needs better app support and social networking integration.I would be grateful if I could be given an update on if/when we can expect to receive such support.If anyone else agrees, please indicate below along with any additional feature requests relating to this topic.
I have touch screen issue with my Nokia 5800 after installing new 51.0.006 version.After instaling new FW system screen frequently goes black and strats again after 7-10 seconds. Ussually it happens when accessing my TXT messages or writing. I also formated memory card and cleard memory of the phone and installed new FW again but problem remains. When problem occures my phone screen goes black and comes back quickly. Network signal is also lost in the process. Phone has't been dropped when issue occured nor badly used. On my old FW 30 everything was working fine and I did not have this issue?
When I try to connect my 5800 XM with USB cable, PC Suite mode, to my MacBookPro with Nokia Multimedia transfer 1.4.2 (8184) the device is not recognized. In Mass Archive mode it works.It worked before updating the 5800 firmware to version 40.
I have a NOKIA 5800 XpressMusic device and it keeps connect to WAP and gps every hour automatic time update is is set to off. I have no email configured and no application is running (what you can see in menu/options/Show open apps.) here is a list of WAP activity from bill call details list (VFL = Vodafone Live):
I often use wireless, but sometimes it has poor signal and is impossible to use so I also use simple mobile internet. Usually the phone using opera mini asks if you want to use mobile internet (not wireless) but now it almost never does, so I get the connection error message as there is no wireless, but I also cannot use my mobile internet. Just today it gave me problems because of that. So bassicly, I cannot use internet, unless I have good wireless signal. And I have mobile internet as priority number 1 in my settings. So is there something else to do? This problem is appearing and dissapearing. Thought could be from bad wireless, it kinda locks itself on it or something, but turning off the phone doesn't help.
when trying to connect to the web, the screen appears to begin opening the web browser and then instantly closes, sending me back to the menu screen. I have used the browser extensively in the past and this issue only appeared today. i have tried restoring factory settings but this doesnt seem to have fixed the issue, im still unable to connect to the web.
my PC was able to connect to the internet with my 5800 via a USB cable. Now, I can no longer connect to the internet with the 5800 via a USB cable. I had never tried connecting the computer to the internet with the 5800 via Bluetooth prior to this incident, so I tried that. Strangely, it works. My question is how come I can no longer use the 5800 via USB as a modem, but how come the 5800 via Bluetooth still works as a working modem? Sorry, if my sentences are confusing. I have a terrible headache at the moment. While the Bluetooth connection works, I just feel better using the USB connection and knowing that my 5800 has a clean bill of health. BTW, my PC is on Windows 7 Professional at the moment. I've tried uninstalling the Ovi Suite and reinstalling it, but that didn't work. I've also tried using PC suite instead of the Ovi Suite but that didn't work either. What other options do I have, beside hard resetting the phone? Edit: BTW, the message shown when I tried to connect to the internet with the 5800 USB modem was "failed to establish a network connection".
I have problem as some application install on my nokia 5800 (or may be symbian) is connecting to internet without my knowledge. I would like to identify it as it making same unwanted connection which are cost for my. For now I have walk around and enforce my phone to ask for password before each connection but it make using Nokia 5800 a little bit annoying. What is more I have checked task manger and I have no application there so it may be or MFC either some other nokia native application (but it is my supposed only).
I am unable to connect my laptop and my phone (5800 XpressMusic) through Bluetooth. When I run 'Nokia PC suite', it detects the phone, it also asks for the pairing code and then I get a message (on my laptop) - "Cannot authenticate the phone".
I have an xpressmusic 5800 and have been using wireless through my home router (and others access points) with no problems for months. I cleared my page history a few days ago and since then (not sure if it related or not) I have been unable to connect to the internet either through my home router, a friends router or O2 active.
The phone crashed several times, shutting down and empyting the battery in the process, and after searching support forums I moved some files around to increase my phones memory space to 65MB. This appears to have stopped the crashing but I am still unable to connect. When I click on the internet symbol the screen goes black for up to 1 minute, then the connecting bar appears but nothing else happens, if left it just stays on that screen. I have my home router set as priority 1 in the connectivity > destinations list.
