  13. Nokia 5530 is a HORRIBLE PHONE. I advise you get the LG alternative. I bought this phone in June off of and the first month, i was inlove wit the phone but after that, I have had problems after problems that drive me insane. I like to text a lot, and sometimes the phone keeps failing to send the text, the turning control sometimes doesnt work so I cant get to the QWERTY keyboard. The freezes at times. The biggest problem is when I put in earphones and then take it out, it does not recognise that I took it out so then the speakers dont work so I would have to turn it off then back on for the speakers to work and plus the battery is weak!.

  14. Hi i have this phone for 15 months now since jan 2010, and this phone is awesome, some of you guys may want to update the firmware,

  16. I do love the way you have presented this issue plus it really does provide me personally a lot of fodder for thought. On the other hand, coming from what I have witnessed, I just simply wish as other commentary pile on that people continue to be on point and not embark upon a tirade of some other news du jour. Still, thank you for this excellent point and even though I can not concur with this in totality, I regard your standpoint.

  17. Malfunction on Nokia 5530 Express Music screen – Screen completely gone blank / black suddenly (not working completely). Can you please tell me how to fix it. I even couldn’t connect the handset to my computer due to the screen gone black / blank (freezing). When I try to turn the handset on, there is a sign of vibrating but the screen still didn’t turn on. For this reason, I could not use my handset.

    Your help is highly appreciated.
