Im with Virgin Mobile in the UK, for some reason the phone will not update to the new version of firmware V51 either through the phone or while connected to the computer
They have sent me out a new phone incase it was a problem, but even the new one wont update...Im having problems with the phone deleting the characters from a sms message which is really frustrating and also on the web browser it wont let me enter anything into a field to put a user name or password in...
Ive read this entire thread and tbh im getting upset with Nokia not allowing me to update the phone!!
If anyone can help me in the mean time to get this updated before Virgin call me back to say they will send me out another phone then great...if not then im going to go back to a Blackberry as I never had one problem

can anyone help me , i have nokia 5800 and version installed 30 and 51 is now available but my phone is not showing any update or version 51 only showing 30 version that was already installed in my phone ,help me out how to update ........
Reasons why a phone cannot update:
1. It is a country variant - country variants often get the updates later, or have updates skipped altogether. A Turkish country variant product code for example, skipped v40 and updated from v31 straight to v50.
2. It is network branded - phones acquired from network providers or these providers' stores SIM free are branded, and will not get updates until the networks approve and modify the updates to their liking.
3. Special editions - These special editions are chartered editions and may never get updates unless taken to a Nokia Care center.
I believe that the solution that was in the v50 firmware that was described as
-Workaround for Niagara (SMD) display module for DFS52.50 based products
that corrected the display problem with some 5800 devices is not present in the v51
The problem has reappeared for me the day I updated.
Any one notices the same thing?
I reside in spain. mobile operator service orange. i contracted my 5800xm in sep'09.
i regularly check for updates but it have'nt showed any firmware update after v21.0.025, where as v30, v40, v50, v51 are already out (one of my co-worker has already updated). i checked on nokia website entering the product code, it says v21.0.... is the latest updated firmware available for my phone.
strange i can't understand, i thought it would have been the country, where the update was'nt available yet, but i was wrong it might be operator now, not sure.
I would be thankful if any body can update me on these.
i have already tried these things - reset, hard reset, reinstalling software through pc with latest nokia ovi suite. my wifi connections are working perfectly. *·#0000# and update it connects and shows no update available, checked updating through ovi suite, same no updates available.
finally, if i get no solution I will give up nokia and look ahead for black berry, i guess.
My problem after updating is with the dialer during a call (I needed to enter a number option). When I press dialer it shows for a split second and then black screen. When I use the side unlock slider the screen shows again for a split second and again black screen. I can still carry on with the call but can't get back to the screen to end it! I have to switch off the phone!

This is a feature. The buttons were taking up too much of the browser's screen area, so now they disappear whenever possible. However, you should see a double-headed-diagonal-arrow symbol overlaid on the bottom right of the web page; touch that, and the browser controls will reappear for a while.
You have Ovi Maps 3.03 in ROM -- it's part of the image you flashed. That isn't (and can't be) selectively replaced when you install Maps 3.04 as a download. The new version goes into your C: drive, which is a separate area from the firmware (AKA the Z: drive). However, subsequent updates won't result in more copies; after the first, each update will replace the previous version on the C: drive.
So there isn't a backup of the original that you can delete; the original is simply a permanent part of the ROM image. It's the new version that's consuming space on your C: drive, not a backup of the old one. If you want, you can uninstall the version on C: and recover the space; the original version will still be available from the ROM.
