How to transfer video files into Nokia 5800

I have download some videos from video website such as Youtube, Google video. But I can't watch these videos in my phone. Nokia 5800 can't play such videos.

Then I got to know Nidesoft Nokia Video Converter that seems professional for Nokia phone, I free download its trial version and tried it, and it works very well. Below are what I do:

You may free download its trial version to try it in this way:

1. Make sure your computer and phone are both switched on. Also make sure your 5800 have a memory card in its slot.

2. Plug the small end of the microUSB cable into the phone's USB socket, which s under a plastic flap in the top left corner.

3. Plug the larger end of the microUSB cable into a USB port on your computer.

Some useful tips to make the Nokia 5800's battery last as long as possible

Sometimes you may have to stop talking with your friend or watching videos with your phone as low power of your battery. It is more inconvenient if you are in travel and have no alternative battery. Here are some tips to make your phone battery last as long as possible when using telephone.

Do not switch the phone off. As switching a phone on uses far more battery power than simply leaving the phone on.

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 when listening to music or watching movies.

Avoid using the camera flash unnecessarily.

Use 2G instead of 3G.

Switch off Bluetooth and/or Wi-Fi.
