also taking your phone to nokia care might not be a bad idea since the phone is so new it is under warratny. they might be able to assist you for free if they determine that it might have been a hardware build issue.

The 5530 can be unlocked by pluging in some headphones. Probably the 5800 can too.

Brilliant solution to a physically broken keyguard switch!

I can now turn off automatic keyguard lock and use the phone.

Menu-->Settings-->Phone-->Phone Management-->Auto Keyguard and set the time.. This will automatically lock the display after non-use for the set period...

If you are with the latest Firmware.. just press the Menu (middle) key and the 'Swipe to Unlock' feature will get activated. Swipe your finger on the moving band from Right to Left and the display will get Unlocked ...
