Not on every phone, but apparently the issue has been so prevailing that in buying a 5530, you have to gamble with about a  chance of getting a faulty phone. It seems to be firmware trouble which may be fixed by a reset or firmware reinstallation though,.

If you buy in India then you have local warranty.

Then you do not have warranty and 3G will not work.

I gotta 5530.  Works fine with the sensors n all that.  Like the phone too.

 

But dude, if you're so worried about warranty, then get the phone in INDIA.  Why?  Because the phone maybe damaged during postals and then your warranty doesnt matter anyway.

 

Seriously man, if you wanna go the safe n sound way, buy it in India.

Dude if your phone is unlocked then dont worry.  Its unlocked to all networks.  But it may be branded.  Thats a whole different thing and it doesnt matter which network you use.

 

A phone can be branded but unlocked. 

 

Now hit the kudos for all of us who've helped you with your 'import questions' :smileywink:

You can browse through the 3G internet provided by your network, All phones nowadays can do that. Even those without 3G and wifi can browse the internet through the GPRS networking.

 

3G is simply a faster mobile connection that GPRS.

Re: Suggest me Which is Better Nokia 5800 or 5530

hahaha Dear Ramkrishna13, i dont believe this thread is still going on :smileyvery-happy:  Now you seem to have confused yourself with another two more phones.

 

Dude, you better check out the prices of browsing with a network provider in india first.  I dont really know the prices but I think its quite expensive right?  If it is the case, you might want to save your money and buy a simpler phone.

 

What happen to the 5530 idea anyway?  Changed your mind?

So maybe as espressobreak said you should go for another, simpler phone or maybe stick with the 5530 which is not a bad phone at all (I've lost it),  it's a great phone. But if you want to buy it (i know it's more expensive), just do it in india due to warranty and that may be branded or such a lot of a list of another problems you could just have because you bought it in the US.

Why would you need an anti-virus program as there are no viruses for s60v5 phones?
