    One odd thing abt 5800xm is that to go to the Main Menu you have to press the centre white button. There is no straight forward way to access the main menu thru Touch Screen.
    There is one work around for this. You can give a shortcut for "Menu" on the Home Screen . Now you can directly access the main menu by simply tapping the Menu Shortcut on the Home Sceen .

    for those who don't know where to set shortcuts,
    go to Menu>Settings>Personal>Home Screen> ShortCuts
    Then for one of the 4 Shortcuts select "Applications" > "Menu" .
    Make sure you have the Home Screen Theme set to Shortcuts in
    Menu>Settings>Personal>Home Screen>Home Screen Theme

    NOKIA 5800XM EARPIECE PROBLEM FIXED (Taken from youtube)
    ===============================
    NOTEO AT YOUR OWN RISK....THIS MAY VOID YOUR WARRANTY IF DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT REPAIRING
    VIDEO
    =====
    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2veHZcKCEPE[/youtube]
    """"Fixing the problem with the earpiece which causes the volume to dramatically vary from high to low and the other way around during a phone call.
    Again first of all you have to know that this could Void your phone Warranty. I don't know, I couldn't stand it so I've fixed it anyways lol.
    note:- the last and most important part is not shown very clearly in the video because my camera's focus can't be adjusted so I can shoot the small parts I'm working on , so I'll try my best explaining it in words (please note that English is not my first language,Arabic is so bear with me here =P). After removing the earpiece as it's shown on the video , you will need to gently using a pretty thin tweezers or screwdriver to pull up (the two metal parts shown at the last pictures in the Video) pull them just a little bit till' you see that there is a gap between them and the Earpiece( The Picture I've taken is after fixing the earpiece .so That is how the piece should look like after fixing it = ) its important that you do it gently because you might end up breaking it. Now you are done all you need to do is to put back the Earpiece back to its place ( the letters and numbers at the bottom of the earpiece should be facing upside down just like the letters and numbers that are printed on where the earpiece will be attached (earpiece slot? I dunno)
    Good luck and if you are having second thoughts you might as well take it to your local Nokia Care Center.
    By the way this is my first Tutorial Video lol *that explains it =P """
    NOTE: THIS IS NOT MY TUTORIAL ....BUT I TESTED AND ITS WORKED 100%-max_online32(Hem)

    1. Always turn off wireless scanning, Bluetooth when not in use

    3. Less Display Light
    a. Setting -> Phone -> Display -> light sensor (move the slider to the left)
    b. Setting -> Phone -> Display -> Light Time-Out (lesser time to save battery but annoying if too short while you are playing games)
    4. Always terminate the application properly that is not using by using Option ->Exit. It might be running background and consuming battery which you don’t know.
    Thanks for these and all the other tips & tricks, they're higly appreciated

    I would like to add one tip on the list above:

    IMO, battery can be saved when turning the vibration to the lowest level (1) or off completely

    Both the vibration alarm and touchscreen vibration can be modifyed (vibration alarm only on or off but touch alarm has option No and levels 1, 2 or 3)

    If you would like to try this method, just go to Settings - Personal Settings - Profiles - General - Modify

    I hope my tip is usefull to someone

    Great tips! I did the battery saving and my phone lasts about 3 and 1/2 days. The shortcut key below the front camera was new to me. Thanks!
