I have a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. Last week I installed Nokia Suite on my PC for the first time.
When I connected my 5800 PC Suite told me I needed to update my phone software. So OK I followed the instructions and updated my software.
That is when the fun started. I went to the Menu screen and tapped on Applications. The Applications icon went grey and the phone just sat there. After a few minutes the grey went away I tried it again and it worked.
Then I went to the Menu screen and tapped on Gallery. The Gallery icon went grey and the phone just sat there. After a few minutes the grey went away and I was able to go to Gallery.
Another time I went to the Menu Screen and tapped on Applications. All of the icons, except for the last row disappeared. A few minutes later the icons came back and I was able to go to Applications.
When an Menu Screen icon goes grey and the phone stops, I can sometimes select a different icon and that icon will work, sometimes the newly selected icon will grey out and the phone sits.
I've used Nokia Chat Support for two times taking more than four hours. The best they could suggest is for me to back up the phone, and do the factory reset. Needless to say the factory reset didn't work, and I am stuck setting up most of my personalization all over again, for a phone that has lost its mind.
This is clearly a known Nokia problem. There are similar posts out there with thousands of reads. Someone, somewhere knows how to fix this. Any ideas?
How did you reset? Here's what should have happened, If this does not resolve the issue visit a Nokia Care Point.
