    haven't tried that to be honest.
    however, i've found a fix in the meantime:







    1. make a backup of your information on the phone with PC Suite.

    2. If your firmware is already the latest version, format the phone by typing in *#7370#. Notice that this will remove ALL settings and data from the phone. The default for the code the phone will ask you next is 12345.

    3. Check if SMS is working before you return any of the backupped data.

    4. If the SMS fails to work after you return backup, reformat and try if the SMS continues to work if you only return parts of the backup.


    Because of some unexplained reason my PC Suite couldn't return any of the Notes I had on my phone so I recommend you backup any of the really valuable data on paper by hand.

    I had to omit returning the settings i have saved during backup, otherwise sms would not wor again. without the restored settings it seems to work like a charm!

Sending message fails


Guyz i have got the solution, just update your firmware of Nokia 5800 XpressMusic to the latest version by connecting your phone to PC with data cable (PC Suite must be installed on your PC from the CD you have got in your Nokia box)

Simply run Nokia Software Updater and let it do its work. after completing update just restart your phone and try to send SMS.

I have solved my problem this way. Hay SOX thanx a lot for your kind concern BTW.

Sending and Replying messages


You should download the patch from the Nokia Europe website for SMS for the E61. This is recommended for all users, as it will significantly increase the speed of sending messages. Vir

Sms messaging


Install SMS Accelerator in your phone. This will boosts up your phone.


All over the Internet, complaints can be found from users of Nokia's E61, N73, and N80 phones who all share the "SMS Problem".

Symptoms of this issue include a phone taking up to 10 minutes to send a text message and then hanging until this process is over.

Despite complains even on Nokia's consumer site, there has been feedback from Nokia until early two weeks ago when they quietly rolled out a patch called the Nokia SMS Accelerator.
Nokia's support site say the application 'accelerates the sending of SMS messaging", but its more of a bug fix which hopeful will find its way into future firmware versions.

"The only solution prior to this patch was a system reformat, in fact I was about to reformat my phone when I found out about the patch last night. I've installed it and it has corrected my problem."

The patch can be downloaded from Nokia's Support Site: E61 | N80 | N73 .
Hope this will solve your problem.

Good Luck
