Not many people complained Nokia 5800 battery performance, because it already has great battery life! However you can still do some tips to make the battery life longer. Tzer2 wrote a great tutorial to maximize Nokia 5800 battery life at AAS site. Here some to do list that you can do:

- Fully charge the phone’s battery
- Do NOT switch the phone off!
- Shut down unnecessary applications
- Turn down the 5800’s screen brightness to the lowest acceptable level
- Switch off your 5800’s screen when not in use
- Use headphones instead of speakers
- Avoid using the camera flash unnecessarily
- Use 2G instead of 3G
- Try to get a good signal
- Use Offline Mode (aka Flight Mode)
- Switch off Bluetooth and/or Wi-Fi

Some of the tips might be an obvious point, but it’s a very important. And if you think “Do NOT switch the phone off!” tips is sounds crazy!

Go to “Settings” > “App. mgr.”
Select “Option” > “Configuration”.
Changed “Software installation” from “Signed only” to “All”.

Now when you try to install the application or the theme you will not see the “Certificate Error” message anymore. Also, for former version themes, you may meet “not compatible, continue anyway” pop-up, just proceed it. Theme is a passive content,it is safty and security(the pop-ups are from the former version theme creator tool not the theme self! All of our themes are proved and tested by our artists.
