" Hey,

 

I got this phone 3 days ago and I am having a serious problem. Sometimes when the phone battery is full (according to the batery indicator) the phone shuts down and won't turn on until I plug it into the charger. When I plug it into the charger and take the charger out, suddenly the phone has only 1 bar for the battery even though it had 5 bars before it shut down. This happened twice already. The first time it happened on the same day I recharged the phone and the second time it was a day after. I only talked on the phone for about 10 minutes each time. 

 

Should I send it back?"

 

 

Make sure the initial charging should be 4 hours regardless if it is already prompting you that the battery is already full.  If issue persists, have it check by Nokia Care Center for further diagnosis and repair.

Bugs:

 

1. Cannot shut down alarm when phone is locked. On screen appears "stop" or "snooze", but neither of both works. The only button that works, is the red phone - button. Alarm goes in snooze. To shut down the alarm, i have to go to the alarm-menu and remove it.

2. When someone calls, I cannot answer unless i unlock the phone and accept the call. Doesn't it has to be possible to answer immediately by pressing the green phone-button???

 

Can someone confirm these bugs being general or not? Thank you!

 

 

Greetz,

 

Julien.

Re: Nokia 5530 bugs and lacks

You need to slide your finger on the screen. Follow the "stop" or "snooze", according to your wish ! Likewise for answering calls when locked. Regards

Re: Nokia 5530 bugs and lacks

Or you can just turn around your phone to snooze the alarm, this work also when your phone is ringing, when u turn your phone it will silence the call. This is inconvenience also as it is only snooze, we have to manual remove the alarm...

 

I just found another new problem on hardware side... first day i notice my camera got some particle inside. I thought it is some dust on the glass, but when i try to clean it, it is still there...since it is not so noticible, so I leave it there... but i found that it become worst and worst... the particle become many... it is not scratch of the screen... it is dust.. how come the dust will enter inside the lens? It affect my picture quality...

I think the dust you are referring to is like a black foam sorrounding the lens of the camera.  I tought it was a dust at first.  The main lens of my 5530 is clear.  Check it again, if there is really a particle inside, have it check by Nokia Care Center.   Also, remove the plastic screen protector on lens if it is still in there.

Re: Nokia 5530 bugs and lacks

unfortunately, it is at the center of the lens.... it is not at the black foam area.. Although when u capture image it is not so noticible, but I feel some how very unconfortable.. I wish to send it to NCC , but i lazy to wait for few week for self collect again.. I think I'll leave it first...

Re: Nokia 5530 bugs and lacks

Yes mines have a slight loose back cover so I put it a clear silicon case to protect the phone and for the back cover to be stable.   Frequent Software Update will be helpfull for issues.  For hardware issues contact Nokia Care Centers near you.  Most of the bugs have been fix by updating to v11.0.054 and now mines is not restarting, locking up, or any major issues..but I notice some of the same device still have same issues even after updating.. Lets hope Nokia will post a new update soon.

Are you using the default browser or third party browser such as Opera Mini?  Opera Mini 5 could lockup upon running on 5530.   If you are using these browser uninstall it look for a compatible browser.  If you find one, please let us know..

Thanks for reply, I'm using the default one.  It seemed to be ok this morning, but purposely did what I needed too quickly.

Re: Nokia 5530 bugs and lacks

Hi.

Are there some bugs left after fw upgrade? 

I am thinking about changing my e51 which hangs when someone calls to 5530xm. 

Is it worth to change? I hate when phone hangs. 

 

Peace

Re: Nokia 5530 bugs and lacks

When I was looking into this phone, mentioned 5hrs standby on battery.  Mine was fully charged yesterday morning, didn't charge it last night, probably had1 or 2 calls on it, and get 3 bars left :smileysad:
