My 5800 touch screen is not responding well like any touch screen should. Compared with my friend's phone and he said there is definite problem with touch. Now is this rectifiable? Or better to go for an exchange? I dont trust Nokia Care because my e72 is still with them for some error which they are not explaning properly. Poor customer service.
I can not seem to find a setting on the phone to change the hangup tone. When I am on the phone and the other caller hangs up I hear a bunch of beeping tones. This is especially annoying when wearing a bluetooth headset.
I just bought the new Nokia 5233 phone.Whenever the phone is locked and I set a alarm. There is no way i can stop the alaram other than to reset the alarm manually by alarms-> edit.
There will be two touch buttons that apper on the otuch screen. One to stop and other to snooze the alarm. Even If press them, it wont work. The alaram keeps ringing. I even tried clicking on the green button and the menu botton at the bottom. Still no use. I cant even unlock the phone. Only thing i can do is press the red button at the end, which will snooze the alarm. After this, I have to manually change the alarm time.
The same thing happens even with phone calls. I cannot use the touch button that apper on the touch screen. I have to use the green and red button at the bottom.These problem come into picture only if the phone is locked. Otherwise it works fine.
As title suggests, there are two new software releases from beta labs, a new release for Nokia bots URL...And a new app for Video collection management and access, looks interesting URL...I find most Beta labs releases quite useful and at least worth giving a try
My 5230 has had the startup freeze problem twice. The first time, I figured it was a problem with the memory card or a specific program, so I did a phone reset and started over. The second time, I did some Googling and found I was not alone. I found people with all the S60v5 phones (5800, 5530, 5230, X6, N97, N97 Mini, etc) have the same problem: the phone will refuse to boot. It will freeze on the Nokia logo, before the handshake. Most users can work around the problem temporarily by ejecting the memory card before booting, but X6 users don't have that option, the poor souls.
It makes me mad to see the problem "solved" on forums by people reformatting their memory cards as if the problem was card corruption. That's not the problem. The problem, or problems, really, seem to be Nokia's.
The problem can definitely be triggered by: -Setting Nokia Messaging to store SMS/email data on the memory card. -Having more than about 40 apps/widgets on your memory card (exact limit unknown)
The problem has also been reported to be the result of: -Having apps on the memory card run at startup (Fring, etc) -Having shortcuts to apps on the memory card on the home screen
I have seen suggestions like, "just install everything onto the internal memory," but that is of course unrealistic, because if you have 40 apps on the card, there's no way they'd all fit on the internal memory. By the time I have my phone configured to my satisfaction, and I've carefully installed EVERYTHING to the memory card, I usually have only 10-15MB free on the internal memory.
The most realistic compromise, perhaps, is to do your best to: -remove apps you don't use -install small apps to the internal memory, large apps to the card -install home screen shortcut apps to the phone memory -install apps that startup on boot to the phone memory (Fring, Google Voice Search, etc)
Ultimately, this is too much of a burden for users, though, and Nokia really needs to fix this ASAP! Especially as the Ovi Store takes off and more people install more apps. I for one hope the problem becomes even more widespread, just so it embarrasses Nokia into doing something.
I hope this post helps someone, and hopefully it ties together the various pieces of information I've seen elsewhere, including other posts in this forum.
Any more specific tips would be helpful, such as: -how to tell which programs run at startup (in case they are not obvious like Fring) -a list of such known programs, besides Fring and Google Voice Search
I had bought nokia 5230 recently. I have a problem in setting ring tone and message tone.When i trying to set ringing tone or message alert tone in the Profiles(General) it showing an error message as "Not enough memory to show all ringing tones. only tones in read only memory will be displayed". But my phone memory has 50.1 MB free space and My memory card has 1.2 GB memory space.
Got the Torch today only to find that the duration of the touch tone transmitted after call connection is incredible short. You hear the tone for the duration that you press the button (soft or hard keyboard) but the transmitted duration is only a few tenths of a second. AT&T says that RIM sez that the transmitted duration should be as long as you hold the button and to return the phone for another one but I am skeptical. With the short duration I am unable to control a remote access system. how to increase the transmitter tone duration?
Right i have had my 5800 for around 3 months now and yesterday i came across a problem,i can recives texts fine but i get no notification, no tone, no vibrate not even the little message icon on the top of the screen,the blinking white light still flashes and i can go into my inbox and see them.
I'm a 1st time owner of a brand new 5800, this is my first experience with a touch screen phone and I was wondering since the screen is plastic and I absolutely hate scratches on my phones anywhere but especially on my screen, is there a way to put a screen protector on the screenof the phone and have the touch screen still work, will it be less sensitive or will it work at all?
