I just bought a new Nokia 5800 phone. I was really excited to get my photos online. But when i opened the share online application there was no option of uploading to flickr. The only available options were Vox and NokiaBlog. I tried the configuration file available at http://www.flickr.com/help/nokia/ , but when I try to install the settings the phone says, "File is corrupted."
How do I get uploading to flickr working on my phone?
i am in the same situation.
i have a new 5800 v20 and there is no way to upload photos on flickr.
i saw that it is possible, because of this video:
but how in the world could i achieve that???
If you are using a network locked version of the 5800 then the network may not allow you access to it. i have a vanillia 5800 on v 11 and it allows me to access flickr.
to do this clicked on the share online button, update service, then ovi, vox, and flickr became available
My 5800 isn't locked either. I bought it from a Nokia Prioroty Dealer too. Strangely even on Flickr Nokia page ( http://www.flickr.com/nokia ) there is no mention of support for 5800 or shave online v 4. All the information therein pertains to just N series and share online v 3
I dont use any of the other services, and since i've already paid for a flickr premium account, 5800's lack of support for flickr is real sad for me.
as you can see here, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etaWOZnbg5I
both 5800 and share online 4.0 support flickr, also there are a lot of users that have the plugin, but nobody knows why. **bleep** nokia!!!
I cannot get my 5800 to connect to Flickr.
Flickr does appear in the list as an available online service, but when I try to activate it, the browser gets stuck at a blank page after entering my username and password.
I am 100% certain that I have entered the username and password correctly.
Is this a problem with the 5800's browser, or Flickr's web site? I've tried several times over the last few days and just can't get it to work.
I just hit upon the same problem as you. So I did some minor tweaking to the confiiguration file and got it working for flickr on my nokia 5800 device. Please download the modified the flickr configuration file from the link below.
thank you for this, i managded to install the plugin with te help of a foreignsim card. also, i changed my phone back to an n82.
on my n82, the plugin didn't exist also, so i had to install it with the help of the foreign sim card.
This is the same problem I am having. And thanks for the solution. But now unfortunately we cannot download the config file you've posted because there was only a ten times limit. Could you upload it again, please? Or find some other way around.
This would be much appreciated.
