The unit's low memory makes it unideal for games and music. This just makes the unit as a basic mobile PHONE.
I have this phone. All features are fine except the so stupid 12MB memory limit with no memory slot for expansion. The battery on my phone is fine can last upto 2 days without recharge, just enable the sleep feature.
Can play many 240x320 java games like needforspeed carbon and others.
DOWNSIDE atleast nokia makes it 32MB atleast so it would make the user happy enough, most Digicam now comes atleast 32MB of free memory storage.
I think nokia 5000 is cheap between more nokia type . But it's have problem , don't have external memory it can be danger if buyer is a who people like downloadable people .
I have a problem with the nokia 5000 everytime i download games it say java/long/out of memory and i find it disapointing as it does not allocate sufficient memory to java applications,please help me
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2009has anybody had problems trying to set a new ringtone? Just purchased this phone and whenever ... moreI have the same problem. I can change the ringtone if I save it to one of the personal profiles but the phone keeps losing it's configuration. Not very happy.
i intend 2 buy this, its cheap n got all i need in a phone : camera, bluetooth, mp3 player.
should i ?
A nice little phone, camera not bad , the usual nokia nav system which is ok. the only down side is the battery life which is pretty crap... i have to charge it up every 3/4 days but on the whole it does what it says on the box !! the radio is quite nifty..
This is a BASIC phone, if you want more, like
- customizing (BIG CLOCK!!!)
- Themes (swf!!!)
than buy nokia 5310
check my link!!!
am,, itS vEry bEautifUl...
weLl.. i want 2 buy..
i like it so much..
Oh my gosh. Honestly, I have to laugh - Nokia have stitched their customers up good and proper with this one. ONE song! ONE SONG and it's described as a "music phone"..? Today I had to delete my Inbox of text messages just so I could save ONE MORE PHONE NUMBER in my contacts. And I cant delete the 6 or 7 pointless 02 tel.no's pre-saved to the phone - the 6 or 7 I will never use in my lifetime.. I bought the phone on a budget and it did the trick, short-term (VERY short-term) but at the end of the day its a waste - its not money-saving at all because you'll get so frustrated at the lack of memory you'll probably smash it to pieces in a fit of rage when it tells you 'Memory full' while you're taking someones number in a club or something. Then you'll not only have to by a new (proper) phone, you'll get fined for being disorderly and causing criminal damage. When you do, blame Nokia.
my friend has this phone. it looks nice and all but she had to delete all the games on it just to get extra memory. she has to consistently delete texts and after she uploads pictures shes taken she has to delete them off the phone and all just to get extra memory since there is no memory card slot. bad phone. don't get it.
well I bought the phone a while a ago and first and foremost I'm a teen so this phone is exactly what I want, some of you are older or listen to more songs that are long so don't buy the phone... I'am not sitting on a gold mine and I needed a phone to use so this is great. It's easy to use and has radio, camera and bluetooth. And for every person out there wanting better specifications then buy a 5130 or a express music...........sheesh
first of all,,, nokia didnt say this is a music phone.., u people should not be disappoint with this unit.. nokia made this unit for people who cant afford high price phone that has a 1.3megapixel and qvga display,, if you dont like this phone then you should buy 5310. if you dont like this phone then probably this phone doesnt like you too...
I really think that the company should of made this nokia with memory slot or gave it a bit more user memory.what a waste.
