Now Nokia’s 5800 XpressMusic blower is out the bag we know it’s pretty darn good with music and movies. But it’s got some other nifty tricks up its sleeve too, letting you spend less time flicking through boring menus and more time staying in touch and in tune. Check out these top secret 5800 XpressMusic telephony tips.



Tap the clock to quickly access alarm functions

Sure, there are menus to set an alarm on the 5800, but by the time we’ve trawled though the endless alarm functions we’d already have fallen asleep. However, Nokia’s new touchscreen operating system means there are shortcuts everywhere. All you need to do is tap the clock for quick access to its alarm functions ready to jolt you from your slumber.

Tap the date to quickly access phone profiles or the calendar
As its name suggests, the 5800 XpressMusic is pretty handy at keeping you on your tapping toes but it’s also great for keeping you organized. Tap the date next to the clock and it’ll open your profile options as well as the calendar, which works brilliantly thanks to the 16:9 widescreen and generous array of drop down menus.

Quickly switch on Bluetooth or Wi-Fi
Getting the 5800 XpressMusic to be friends with your Bluetooth devices is quick and easy courtesy of some common sense from the Finnish call kings. Rather than scrolling though endless menus, simply tap above the date to switch Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on or off in an instant.

Add up to two RSS feeds to friends
Staying in touch doesn’t just mean calling or texting your pals. Did you know you could turn your mates’ Facebook, Flickr or YouTube feeds into RSS updates on your phone? Just tap them into the dedicated contacts bar and you’ll always see what they’ve been up to, alongside previous calls, texts and emails.

Flip silent
Fancy a bit of quiet time? The tuneful telephony device supports Nokia’s flip silent function, so that should the phone ring and you don’t want to take the call, simply turn it face down to silence it as if to say “talk to the hand”… or the table.

Send text messages the way you want to
Thanks to Nokia’s snazzy new operating system there’s a whole bunch of ways to send text messages to your chums. You can choose from tapping out texts via the on screen QWERTY keyboard with two hands, pull up a regular number pad for conventional messaging, or use the plectrum (see what they did there) that comes attached to the lanyard for knocking messages out on the mini keyboard.

There’s even a stylus slotted into the side of the 5800, and the phone will recognise handwriting too, instantly turning your scribbles into typed text messages.

    I wondered what secrets will be given there…But suddenly I thought maybe the nokia 5800 xm new update 40.0.005 will have some secrets i do not know…My alart functionality and answering to a call when my cell is locked was a bit hard to solve how!!! I never found it here but I got the answer by myself using sliding animation arrowing to left and right. Just sliding my finger as shown on animation does the trick. I replied to this thread to save someone’s precious time.

    As far as I know, you can only use the icon next to the battery meter to turn OFF Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and the shortest way to have Bluetooth enabled/disabled is to have it as one of your shortcuts on the standby screen.
