It would be nice if Nokia would create firmware versions with different languages. During my holiday in France this year mij N95 died so I had to buy a new one in France. Now I can't choose Dutch as language. You've to go to a Nokia carepoint and as far as I'm informed the languagepach is lost during an update. Why is this so difficult. Why can't I as user install a language pack. Even in a huge OS like Windows 7 it is possible to change the language without installing another OS. So come on Nokia it can't be so difficult. And why is your filesystem and directory structure so difficult to understand. It would be nice if for example the folder for SMS messages would be named the same. I lost a lot of messages on my N95 because I can not access the folders from my Computer ( it is still accessible bij USB )

I confirm that RDS is only working if you switch bluetooth on (On my phone at least). This is a plain bug as of course the RDS infomation does not come through bluetooth.
Thanks for the tip.
Anyone from the USA? I tried to update my Nokia 5800XM but it gives me the error that my carrier might not support the latest update.... Is there a way to bypass this?
About RDS.... i hardreset, reinstalled firmware and hardreset again... yep... Bluetooth needs to be on for RDS to work ... that is the weirdest bug i've seen on a firmware update... how it is possible that the RDS malfunctions since v30 and no one has fixed it.... maybe worse... the fact that before v30 it worked fine...
I had done FOTA update to v51 and screen rotation detection was working properly (you didn't had to 'untilt' the phone to 90º for it to detect rotation ... after the resinstall went back to what it was...
Another thing i just noticed... after the hardreset - reintall - hardreset - sync contacts - install updates (except for Exchange) ... my mobile phone reboots randomly (not quite a reboot ... is more like interface restarts closing all apps - or none if there isn't a thing open - and restart homescreen)... quite epic... i don't even need to touch it... sometimes is within a few secs, others from hours to hours .... ... v51 is the worst update so far.... even the bugs introduced with v30 were not so critical... yes ... phone looks snappier... but speed and instability are rarely productive....
** Warning - massive rant ahead **
Yep... that's it ... i'll leave my 5800 at home till a new and proper firmware comes out... if ever ... instead i'll just grab my old dumbphone that is actually more reliable, even if battery only lasts a day... Nokia got into a new low with these firmwares (and by these i mean N97 and 5530 as well)... i wonder if they actually do extensive tests on real hardware for release versions...
I can't understand how can it be possible to mess up a phone so well... What were firmware developers thinking?
Ever since i saw a E65 fail in a epic way (and was not mine) when was supposed to be a reliable enterprise phone, i started to doubt Nokia ability for making good phones ... even so i brought 5800 thinking that it would be a good phone ... now... well... if i knew it, i would just keep my money... no more Nokia phones ever.... no matter what... and given how segmentation of mobile phones is... hmmm ... no more mobile phones for me whatsoever ... wanna talk to me and it's an emergency? Use email or a land line ... better yet... read the manual and solve the problem yourself (the CD tray is not a cup holder, OK?)...
Just updated and my findings:
1. Radio hangs frequently after update. Had to re-boot to get the radio working again!!! RDS still flaky.
2. Web browser does not re-flow anymore in magnified view when you change phone orientation.
These changes are regressive… not acceptable from a world-class company.
Anybody having these issues?
1 good feature i noticed:
when using headphones, n a sms comes- the tome has an "ascending" nature. useful!!
but i've been having a strange problem. everytime i connect my phone to pc, the battery gets drained rapidly n d set becomes hot- even if the connection is for 1 minute only!
dnt knw tho whether its related to d firmware....
