Nokia 5800 problem

I've just got the nokia 5800 today, I have some strange problems with it. I've inserted my old sim card and it says theres no contacts in my contacts on the phone, yet when people text me it came up with there names, like it reckognized them? So far i've just been saving the contacts again...
Next problem is that I have a flashing message in the top right saying my sim is full. I can't find any sim card options what so ever and when I went into my message box options there was no ' sim messages ' option as described in a previous solution to this problem. Do I need to update my phone or something? can someone help.
Please help!

    Hello there.
    Thanks alot for replying!
    I went into the option of my phone of ' sim numbers ' and it says there is none there, and there is also none on my phone contacts aswell...I don't understand whats going on and how it's reckognizing numbers if they aren't on either the sim or the phone, I'm confussed!
    I've looked through my instruction book and it tells you how to insert the sim, create contacts ect, but it doesnt say anything about this.
    Also my contacts on my sim is nowhere near full, I hardly had any on there, not even 50 contacts, so it shouldn't be flashing saying the sim card is full.
    I'm going to try and look through the booklet again and check around online about this problem, but if you or anyone else can help? please help me! :)

This is not a problem...
the point if that the old phone which you used stored the contacts in the sim card a sim card can store up to 100-200 contacts (dont know the exact number)
So when you inserted the sim card into the New phone teh contacts got shifted to the new phone through the sim .
They are stored in teh sim so you might be getting the message no contacts in the phone as there arent any!!!!!!!!!
i do not know about the phone but the nokia 3600 could go to the sim and back by the direction keys
why dont you try that out???
or reffer the book which came with it for the contacts
but i am quite sure this is what has happened..
the blinking is because now you sim cannot hold anymore contacts it is full....
i will chech out the functionality of 5800 hundred and tell you about how to do it in some time

I have a nokia 5800 xpressMusic. Made in Korea. Imei is 352012042341890. I am not able to use it in Bangladesh. When i insert SIM card it says "INVALID SIM CARD" Please give me a solution.

Either your sim card is faulty, or more likely your handset is network locked.
You will need to either purchase a new sim card (if sim is problem) or obtain the network unlock code for your phone.

Bought Nokia 5800 today. Brill phone. Pressed the wrong button and now it is showing "off Line". When I try to set it back to general setting it ask me to insert Sim card whihc is already in the phone. Any...

It was the SIM card which caused the problem.The card needs to be correctly lined up when inserted, otherwise it can't connect with the phone. I used the Stylo to line it up.

My nokia 5800 won't recognise my sim card

Test your sim-card in another GSM device. If the other handset accepts the sim-card and will allow you to use the network, then you can determine that your problem is the Nokia 5800 itself. Otherwise, you might need to invest in another sim-card.
