Nokia 5800 Dialer and Contact Button Not Working

Before i updated the phone software, i avoid it by using the contacts bar home screen theme; the contact button and dialer seem to work only in that layout, which i didn't mind. But now, after the update, and since there no other way to access the dialer im kinda screwed...$300 phone with no that can't dial how embarrassing

If anyone know the cause or cure for this problem plz help

Re: Nokia 5800 Dialer and Contact Button Not Working

I had this same issue with one of my friend's Nokia 5800XM ..

 

The only is to ..

 

Hard Reset, just press and hold GREEN call button + RED end button + CAMERA button and switch on the phone from off state and wait until the nokia logo comes out.

 

Re-prepare ure lost applications, however the memory card data intacts, remember to do a contacts backup using Nokia file manager and restore it later on.

 

TQ

Re: Nokia 5800 Dialer and Contact Button Not Working

I got the same problem as well. I hope nokia technicans really focus on this serious problem that exist long time ago right now instead of doing those fancy things in every update. Reflashing is not the solution. A phone that has no dialer? So i bought a phone but i cant dial! What a joke.

Its not the hardware / fone device fault, its the user's fault :smileyhappy: my friend has the same issue, this is due to application clashes. Thats all, solved by resetting the fone :smileyhappy:

I got the same problem! This is very serious! These buttons do not work in any mode of the main screen! And also the shortcuts do not work in my case the icons do not appear. I hope nokia will solve the problem quickly, I had left a good feedback about the software updater!

 

I tried hard-reset but does not work! Does nothing! Help me!

I have had a similar but different problem with the new software. I can't stop an alarm with the touchscreen buttons. Very annoying! Anyone got any ideas?

Further to my previous post - it appearsthe problem only occurs with calendar entries which have been first entered in Outlook with a reminder and then are synchronised to the calendar on my phone. If I make a calendar entry with a reminder directly on the phone the reminder looks completely different and I can cancel it OK.

Only for statistics, the same thing happened to me, changing the theme to "sound waves". Hard reset worked for me.

The hard reset worked for me as suggested by Xploitmachine.
You need to back it up first as it really does get rid of EVERYTHING!
