    Nokia 5800: Stylus Issues?

    Has anyone had/got a stylus, and has / is having problems with the stylus?

    Ive had the 5800 since June 19th, and I've already bought and lost a replacement stylus, as the slot where it is stored seems to be very loose and the stylus keeping falling out?

    Jut wanted to know if it was just me, of if it was a known problem with the Nokia 5800, and whether or not i have grounds to swap the handset (june was the start of my 18month contract?!)

    I've got the same problem. Solved it by gluing it in...

    i cant use the stylus. Its very tacky too init?
    Not sure if you could swap it but you may as well try.
    I have brought a samsung stylus pen that attaches to where you would put a wrist strap ofr charm.

    i have my phone in a case so stylus never falls out, but when its out of the case, it never fell out

    This where ours is from. They are just over 3 quid but you wont lose so will cost much less in long run. Easier to use to

    yes my stylus very loose too. Also, does anyone find when replying to a txt it seems to take ages? I also hate it that when you sending a text (at that precise moment) that you cant open the inbox - you have to wait til its sent. Sooooo annoying

    does the samsung strap fit where the nokia strap/pelctrum is currently?

    That's the problem when you shove it up there so often....

    the pelctrum? its rubbish its to rounded so you cant tap the letters/numbers you really want :x

    the pen attaches to where you would attach a wrist strap. you open phone and slot it in.

    or just buy 4 nokia ones for !.69 delivered

    on the bay - number 150364083352

    vodafone are saying the back cover should have 3 clips to keep it in place? If anyone has a nokia 5800 (with stylus!) can you check how many clips you have. they have said its 2 side, and 1 top.

    :thumbsup:

    I have just lost my stylus, so annoying! anyone bought the ebay ones? What are they like?

    Yes mine has two on teh outer adge on the side and one tiny location pip at the top that locates on the tip of the stylus, just after the tapered bit - if that makes sense!

    yes its londonmagicstore, £1.89 for 4. However, they are not great. They dont all fit peroply (2 out of 4 dont fit properly) and they feel really flimsy - no where near as strong as the proper ones do
