some irritations with using the 5800 so far - early annoyances

a few issues! Album art doesnt display, even though I used WMP11 to synch. Its really annoying - I don't see that I'm doing anything wrong.

Also all these annoying alerts about secure connections that constantly appear when I use Opera Mini and GMail, whats with that!?

Also can't seem to change iPlayer to use Wifi, it just defaults to t-mobile internet and then says I have to use wifi when I try to watch any programmes!

if you have an iplayer .sis or .sisx can you attach it to a post !!! can't seem to get on mine

Opera mini is a java application (is gmail ?). There are loads more security checks. You can turn these off in the java settins but it is dangerous. this would be the same for any phone you used.

all versions of nokia music player have issues with album art.
its because theres no 'get art' option
unless you manually get the artwork (grab from amazon) and add it to the album

oddly iTunes purchases allways work perfectly
(and presumably nokia music store.)

To be honest the only thing particularly getting my goat is with respect to certain things only being in one orientation (home screen, Nokia Maps and the full virtual keyboard being the major offenders). Would also be nice to have more than four quick launch icons on the home screen. Surely there is enough space for a 2nd row of icons?

Displays album art in AAC's no problem. Will only display album art in mp3's if the artwrok's tag is set to 3 (front cover). See my post on http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/forum...ad.php?t=82694

I use Nokia Music Manager to transfer mp3's without converting to AAC, it has an option to add .jpg, .png or .bmp files as album art - seems to work ok.
