Thumbs up Firmware v20.0.012 available (UK generic BLUE phone)

I just checked for the 11.0.0.9 update on my blue 5800, and it said v.20.0.012

I've just updated... now looking for changes.

One thing... the phone will ask you for the lock code when it turns on (mine did anyway) - the stupid thing sets itself to text input, so you have to HOOOOLD the keys down to get the numbers of your lock code!

+ new icon for "media" folder
+ new icon for "download" application
+ You can now edit what gets shown on the "Shorcuts bar" home screen. i.e should it show search, music player, calendar, radio etc. Sadly not yet available in the "contacts" view :(
+ Search on the home screen is now "search internet and my content
+ Camera seems to process images faster. Initial impressions on image quality are: it's the same
? Messaging seems less likely to crash when retrieving emails (if set to auto-retrieval, when you previously double clicked on an email to actually download it, Messaging would crash 9 times out of 10 unless you previously had connected to the mailbox)
- Blasted "screen randomly changing hue" bug is back. I saw this in V10 but it was ok in V11. What happens is the buttons, images, basically everything on the screen takes on a purple / green / red tinge, like there's a screen malfunction, except the network and battery indicators remain perfectly white. It comes and goes on its own... damned annoying! :( :( :(
+ Top menu bar (in messaging / bluetooth etc.) has now been changed to ONLY show 3 icons (tabs), which scroll left / right as you click on them. There's no arrows though, so this is a tad confusing at first (no indication of extra tabs available)
+ New icon for applications running in the background
- Lock code has randomly changed (not Nokia default, not previously user-set)

Maybe that's just cause of the security settings I have on mine then...

I just did the update over the air. I had changed my lock code to 12077 but after the update this did no longer work. So I decided to try the default 12345, which didn't do anything either. Now I'm stuck here, what can I do? Any other things I could try?

-stuclarck, like with all nokia phones you can hold # to go into number modus which means you don't have to hold every key.

- YES, if you *know* it's gone back to text mode...

I bet your lock code is still the same as it was (mine was) but the phone is thinking you're typing it as text...

Search = system error

So when I hit the new search button, I get "system error" and only the option to press OK and go back to main screen.

Ideas?

thanks,
steve

i hope this helps, how i solve my 5800 v20 problems

Hi all,

new to this forum thing but some stuff hear helped me so... wat goes around comes around .

Anywho i installed the v20 update and i had a few problems.

1. Asked me for my unlock code, i typed my one in but it would not accept it.

2. The search feature in home menu was giving me an error message when i tried to access it.

3. I didn't have the app.update thing or the dictionary applications.

To resolve (for me anyway!!!)

1. reinstall the update
2. hard reset your phone using *#7370*

What happened.

1. my unlock code reset to 12345
2. all updated stuff listed appeared and works
3. the search feature works.

I hope this helps and works for you guys.

Glad I am not the only one, I have had this on my v11 phone since day one. Like a good boy I reported it to Nokia "Advanced Support Team" who did the classic call-centre "Oh! That's something new, never heard of that ever ever Sir!"

Checked the forums here and didn't see anything either. Partly glad to know it's a general prob and not my hardware.

Nokia either have a major manufacturing issue on their hands, or this is a major bug!

I've had 2 handsets that do this now, so with yours that's at least 3... and I know my two came from different production batches, so they can't even blame a simple "batch issue"

I'm wondering, why is there an option to add birthdays to your contacts if they don't automatically show up in the calendar?

Also, the 'add anniversary' option in the calendar does not really offer an alternative, since it does not tell me how old the person in question is. Any workarounds?

After the firmware update my 5800 doesn't dimm the screen anymore when I'm calling someone and the phone is near my ear. I loved this feature as it saved a lot of power for callaholics like me

I just came across a new feature! Upon changing the writing language (e.g. when using the full qwerty keyboard) the keyboard layout changes giving you e.g. a full qwertz german leyboard layout. Way to go Nokia!
