    I have just got my Nokia 5800 recently and i worked fine for a while. but then suddenly it would not turn on. i mean by that i can hear the nokia starting tone, but nothing appears on the screen?

    Are there any solutions do this? or do i need to buy/return it?

    Thank to your post now I know about calibration.
    I am using Remote Desktop software SymRDP for S60 5th on my Nokia N97 phone. After calibration it works even more smooth now!

    The step by step to calibration is great and I think that would solve my problem of touching one key and keys to the right responding (ie press 1 and 3 gets selected instead) – but my touchscreen is so bad I can’t get as far as selecting Settings, as that icon is to the left of my screen – I just keep getting Applications! Any ideas how to get to the touch input screen another way?!
