I've been using this phone for almost 3 months now and the only annoying thing which i've been facing since day-1 is the sudden restart of phone [similar to blue screen of death in Window here it has white screen of death :-( ] it's really strange i've re-flashed the phone formatted my memory card but to no avail the problem remains the same. The problem initially was observed when i tried to send SMS to very large number of persons (50+ for example) and no sooner did i open the contact list in messaging application to edit recipients, phone gets restart showing white screen like if OS has crashed. Now the problem has shifted to sending SMS to large number of recipients and at times phone just restarts for a incoming message. I'm really annoyed as i do texting a lot and this problem is hindering me from that. Anybody facing the same problem or any suggestion to get around the problem??

P.S: Please don't suggest me to visit Service Centre as they'll only re-flash the phone and i've already done re-flashing twice :).

Thanks!

i bought this phone
i'm happy about it
first week thought it's a minus not having wifi and front camera, then i realized that i dont need video calls; and gprs is so cheap that i dont need wifi. with few dollars i buy 1gb of traffic and thats more than enough for youtube, emails and FB...

one thing that annoyed me was - i cant set an image for a group of contacts! when i try to do that it actually sets that image for each member of group. its ok first time, but when u change it, it asks u each time if u are sure u wanna replace it. for a group of 100 ppl i had to touch screen 100 times!
yes i am sure i wanna replace it, yes im sure, yes, yes, yes, yes!

Just compare it with 2 MP camera on some Samsung phones, for eg., if you don't agree. You will find sample pics in reviews online.

positives: good battery, dvd quality video, free gps, 3.5 mm jack for external speaker support, 3g.
negative: low audio, phone music player cannot play files from folders(need to create playlist).
overall: good phone for music lovers.

I had Nokia 5230 telephone for about 3 months.
I bought it as i had previously Nokia telephone and thought it would be easy to transfer all settings and data from previous model. 1st disappointment provided software didn't allowed that to be more precise software didn't work with new telephone at all. It was hanging every time I tried to connect telephone to computer. And reinstalling software didn't work at all. Had to install some soft manually(nokia maps.
In telephone soft is not so good also . Its operating system and its not so flexible You can not freely decide what element is visible and what short cut you have on main screen. Worse that its hard to recognize what application is running in the background draining your battery. You have to to to special sub window and turn off any application manually. System is hard to understand. Media browser is awful it place all media like pics or music into 1 big window so if you have lots of them they will be hard to organize. Camera switch is located badly so camera could be triggered on without noticing just by holding it.
Battery is fail maybe I had bad battery but once a week telephone went hot and battery was drained in 30 mins. Nokia service didn't replace battery just replaced in telephone soft erasing all my settings claiming that its my fault that battery is drained so quickly. But during that all applicators were off and telephone was on stand by. I don want to argue with them any more I don want to go trough all telephone set-up again and again I treasure my time so trashed this telephone. happy Nokia no more
