Nokia :: N97 - Touchscreen Qwerty Keyboard
I have used only Nokias all my life. The one time I ventured away was to use the iPhone. It's landscape qwerty keyboard is so amazing. I think Nokia is still the best, but do you think in the near future we can get a phone with landscape touchscreen qwerty keyboard? It could be on a new version of the N97 because I think the tilting screen is really awesome too, but I'd think having both would be neat, leaving it upto the consumer to decide whether they want to use the slide or not. Actually maybe putting it on the N900 sounds better but it's edged are not very flattering. Makes it look incredibly like a masculine phone. I know I am going a bit off topic too, but a few more color choices would be nice to steer away from black and white for the N97. I would appreciate red.

Nokia Nseries :: Getting The Contacts From A 5800 Without A Touchscreen
my phone fell down and the touchscreen is broken. I figured out, that the contacts are not saved on my sim-card nor on the sd-card, but internally. I want to sync it with nokia suite, but I need to activate the connection with the phone first, as I suppose. Is there another way to, maybe bypass the connection-selection-screen on the phone or automatically setting up a connection?

Nokia :: 5800 / Automatic Key Lock Not Working
For some time now the auto key lock won't lock the screen and keys. The key lock button on the side of the phone works fine. I’ve tried what I could think of: disable and enable auto key lock, restart phone (with auto key lock on and off).I use software version 21.0.025.246.06.I recently installed Nokia Maps 3.0 and Google Maps, but I'm not sure if the problems began when I installed them, only that I only became aware of the problem after the installation.

Nokia :: 5800 - Automatic Contact Search
I have an important (and I think not too difficult) feature request:
My previous phone - e66 - had the feature that you could, after sliding it open, just start pressing buttons. There was a search routine in place that autmatically started searching you addressbook for the matching key-combinations. This was the easiest and fasted way ever to find a contact!Implement this feature into the great 5800, it would make (business) life (going in the car, walking an the street.and looking for a contact) so much easier!

Nokia :: 5800 Email Automatic Retrieval
I am trying to set up my email so that they are retrieved automatically every 2 hours. The problem is that it works only when I set my home connection on the email account and not the default option. That means that when I am home it works fine but when I leave home and go to somewhere else with an open wifi or another known wifi it cant update, not even manually! It says it cant find the WLAN.
This is not very convinient since I move around alot and so the only way to work with my email is to have default option for the mail account wifi connection and retrieve them manually.
Is there something I am doing wrong? I have also set up most of my wifi connections from the destinations menu "use access point:automatically".

Nokia :: 5800 Sound Recording Automatic Pauses?
Whenever I try to record audio during some of my office meetings, the recording is automatically getting paused after 3 - 4 minutes. I need to click on "record" to cotinue again. If i try to record a session of 45 minutes..probably 7 to 8 times i need to check my mobile to see whether it is recording or already paused and if already paused i need to click on record to continue. Do i need to modify any settings so that the recording will continue without automatically pausing.

Nokia :: 5800 - Latest Update / Touchscreen Sensitivity Increased
I got the latest software (v50) for my phone and have had a few annoyances. Firstly my text when writing a text sometimes randomly starts deleting itself as though the delete has got a mind of its own and has locked or something, meaning I helplessly watch my text get deleted. Secondly, when browsing, occasionally if I bring up the back and option buttons (coming out of full screen mode) they just wont appear and I cannot do anything unless I close and reload the page. Thirdly when touching an icon, it may not realise for a while and I have to keep pressing it other times I accidently press something once and it opens it. The new features are great, but the problems are annoying and is it possible the sensitivity can still be increased as its almost perfect in terms of touch sensivity from a finger. I end up using my nail to help it along sometimes.

Nokia :: 5800 Calendar Alarms Can't Be Dismissed (40.0.005) By Touchscreen Buttons
I updated the 5800xm to the new firmware v40.0.005. Everything seems to work, except for a small irritation. There are some entries in my calendar and reminders are set.When a reminder is due, a window pops-up with audible alarm for the calendar entry.
To dismiss the reminder, I have to unlock the touchscreen and select from the 2 options (don't remember the exact names).But, after unlocking, the buttons don't respond.. The touch/tapping seems to be registered, but the alarm still persists.The only button that seems to be active is the Red one, which puts the alarm in 'snooze'.. and the alarm repeats every 5 minutes.
After the alarm is 'snoozed', the keyguard again goes to 'locked' state. Further unlocking and working on the phone works ok, except on the calendar reminder option..

Nokia ::5800 Xpressmusic - If The Earpiece - Is The Dreaded LCD - Touchscreen Cause After Some Time
I have been a nokia fanboy since the days of the old 3310. I currently have a 5700 and i would like to switch to the awesome 5800.
1. I would like to know if the earpiece issue has been fixed in models manufactured from feb 09. I am from India and they have the models manufactured in feb 09 over here. Any issues? If any guys who bought the same would comment. it would be real nice.
2. Is the Dreaded LCD Problem also fixed? I am talkin about the fuzzy lines when unlocking the phone with the side-lock. Its a hardware issue right? has it been fixed yet? Again, any comments from ppl who bought this from india would be nice.(I am talkin about the feb 09 manufactured models)
3. Does the touchscreen cause problems after some time, i.e cease to work after 6 months or so?. I saw a few cases on the net and wanted to know if it was common.

Nokia Nseries :: 5800 Touchscreen Does Not Respond On Incoming Call
Just bought a Nokia 5800XM blue yesterday. A weird problem I have with this phone, that is, the touch screen doesn't seems to respond or working during an incoming call. That makes me have to answer the call by pressing the green button instead of the answering button appears in the screen. also, the screen doesn't seems to response whatever icons I touch when making outgoing calls. I remember I did answered a call by just touching the screen answering icon on the 1st day I bought the hp. Is this a common bug to all the firmware of v21?

Nokia :: 5800 - Automatic Time Update / Jumped Ahead One Hour
I've had a nokia 5800 for about 6 or 7 months now. when I got the phone I turned on the automatic time update and it kept time really well. Then it got to about november last year and suddenly it jumped ahead 1 hour. Now every morning I have to turn on auto update (since the phone wont keep time without it), let the time update, change the time back one hour and tell it I havn't changed time zones. I live in Perth Western Australia and we dont use daylight savings so I dont know what is going on with it.

HTC :: How To Cope With A Software / Touchscreen Keyboard?
I've had an HTC Touch for about 8 days now (Sprint model, with the additional RAM) and I really like this phone. Call quality is excellent, is snappier than other WM6 phones (manufacturers: WM6 is a memory hog, give it the RAM it needs!) and the TouchFlo is really useful.However, as a long-time Treo user (and email/IM/text message fiend), I really cannot adjust to the software/touchscreen keyboard. The default keyboard was awful (who the hell types effectively on a keyboard that looks like a regular phone keyboard, where you need to repeateadly press the same keys to get to the desired letter), the alternatives weren't much better (currently trying both SPB Full Screen Keyboard and the Calligrapher 8.5), though the SPB fullscreen keyboard currently gets the most use out of me.
With a touchscreen keyboard, there's not tactile feedback, so you NEED to look at the keyboard while typing, and even regular sized fingers stumble on the wrong letter. Also, the auto-correction wreaks havoc when trying to type in multiple languages and the added hassle of having to turn it on and off is just one more reason for me to believe, IMO, that soft keyboards are useless.With that said, I do love my HTC Touch and will try to get used to its keyboard for the next couple of weeks. However, if I can't, I might have to go with a Palm 755p or 700w (wx?).

Nokia :: 5800 - Random Numbers Appearing At Top
Two days ago, I purchased a Nokia 5800. I think it is an excellent phone, but I'm quite irked that I've already encountered a problem.
When I access the Menu, a random number fluctuates at the top right-hand corner of the screen somewhere between 0.7 and 16.38.
After doing some independent research, I have concluded that it is the doing of a faulty application. However, I have not downloaded an application that has not been endorced by the Ovi Store/does not have a license and is not trusted. Just in case, I have uninstalled a few applications that I find useless, so here are the applications that remain on my 5800:
Blackboard (downloaded from Ovi)
eBuddy (licensed and trusted by many people)
Elements (downloaded from Ovi: my sister is a Chemistry teacher, therefore she needs it)
Facebook (downloaded from Ovi)
Google Maps (same as eBuddy)
Guitar Rock Tour
Mail for Exchange
Midomi (downloaded from Ovi)
Nimbuzz (downloaded from Ovi)
PhoneTorch ('' Ovi)
QuickOffice ('' Ovi)
Skype (same as eBuddy)

BB Torch 9800 :: Better Keyboard Phone W/ Touchscreen?
I have been keeping recommending iPhone 4 to my girlfriend, who is going to get her Master degree from Columbia Univ and step into business world. And she said, "wow, it looks wonderful but too naive/childish for me".
And then I bought her the iPod Touch, just for casual use. (I would make Torch a great surprise since she always wants a Blackberry. Samsung sucks btw, we have had 3 Samsung phones and they are all crap - hardware-wise).
I love iPhone, but I could not live without a keyboard phone. Sorry Droid and iPhone fanboys, touchscreen just sucks for business users/ users mainly do texing and little cell-photo-taking.
If you are not a college boy, and you are a real businessman, I bet you would be as busy as me so 40% of your time is for emails/texting/notepad/calendar, 30% for phone calls, 20% or less for web browsing, and 10% for enjoying music when driving (or on subways while reading newspapers) and other multimedia functions.
And seriously, I only use my phone to take pictures of notes on whiteboard or product labels when I don't have a camera at hand. And if you really like taking photos, DSLR would do you good.
Do you really need a 800x600 display for texting?phone calls?. And how much do you rely on web browsing by cell phone? It's just for checking some information when you are outside.
Let's see what Torch does best from all kinds of reviews: Gizmo, Engadget, BGR, Crackberry....
1). Top notch keyboard - good for 40% of time texting/emails/notepad/calendar
2). Great call quality - good for another 30% of time, and no drop calls/death grips
3). WebKit Browser - enough for 20% of time web browsing - after all we all own laptops (you don't have one?)
4). Improved media experience - I am ok with just listening to music. I seldom watch videos on handheld devices - only nerds do it often.
Hence, the bottom line: is there any other good keyboard phone out there? (with a touch screen and not as ugly/huge as Droid)?
=) CPU is fine, Screen resolution is fine (I am really ok with texting and managing my business life with Bold's screen resolution).
After all, do you really spend 80% of your time on cell phone while you have friends and can do all the things on a computer?

Samsung :: Tmo Memoir / T929 Touchscreen Keyboard Hacking?
The only thing that bothers me. which is gettin pretty major is the the touchscreen keyboard. I find that there are some keys in there that could be done w/o and free up some keysize issues. I wish I could get rid of the key that puts you back into the keypad mode, loose the T9 word selector key, move the "?" key in its place and make the space button longer to the right...is there any such thing?

Nokia :: 5800 - Can't View Missed - Received - Dialled Numbers
I'm a user of a Nokia 5800 XM. I've been experiencing problems with my phone. Firstly, there is this problem when I open "Log". Its like, I can't view my missed calls/received calls/dialled numbers packet data or call duration. When I try click on them, nothing happens and the page remains the same. And the page would then hang. When I try to look at my dialled numbers by pressing the green button, it shows "retrieving data", but nothing will come out of it. From there, I tried looking at my missed calls and received calls too, but nothing is displayed and the page hangs too. I believed this happened after I clicked on "clear counters".
Secondly, I was chatting on the phone just now, and out of a sudden, all I could heard from the phone was this weird sound. My friend heard it too. And it happened for quite a few times, thus preventing both parties from speaking.

Nokia Nseries :: Block Certains Numbers/callers On 5800?
As per title, I have the (red) Nokia 5800 with software version 11.0.009 - I have checked on NSU, and this is the latest version currently available for my phone.Anyway, I just want to block a particular number from calling me. I tried using a silent.mp3, which is obviously just silent - but the phone still vibrates anyway.Any tips on how to do this, without having to pay £10,20... for a simple piece of software?
