Question Nokia 5530 - N00b questions about Nokia Messaging, Ovi Store, Ovi Suite, and PC Suite


Got a Nokia 5530 a few days ago. It's my first "smartphone", although I've owned other Nokia regular handsets before.

I got Nokia Messaging working, but it was cumbersome. I thought Nokia Messaging would show up as an application, but it's kind of hidden when you set it up. At least, if you display e-mail on the home screen, you have access to your e-mail.

I also downloaded (from the 5530's interface) and installed some Ovi Store applications, but now, every time I try downloading one, I get "download failed."

I installed Nokia PC Suite and Ovi Suite. They both appear to be able to sync data, but only PC Suite appears to install applications to the 5530. What else is Ovi Suite good for, other than syncing? Also, how can I install Ovi Store applications from the PC? Is this possible somehow? When I access the Ovi Store on the Web, I can only send a text to my phone.

Should I just restore factory settings on my 5530 and start over?

Sorry for so many questions! I figure I have a better shot here than on Nokia's Discussion Forums.
