the bad thing i found with mi nokia 5230 is that i use wireless lan so but i love mi phone
nokia 5230 is a magnificent phone but its poor in battery consumption..
perfect phone to use, one of the best model i ever used,easy to perform multitasking, fast to access net features:-)
one of the best phones of nokia...which has 3g that 5233 lacks and the rest of the specs are decent for this handset in its price range..
Only prblm is it has a low ram and verry little internal memory....which makes multi tasking bit slow
I've had this phone for more than a year n i love it..
NM, 14 Sep 2012I think you might perhaps have selected the wrong video codec. I use 'Any Video Converter' sof... moreOkay I just checked videos with max 30fps are supported on Nokia 5230. Hey & 1 more thing, when I wrote 'mpeg4' video codec, I meant video codecs 'x264 & xvid' are not supported. So maybe the video that you transferred in your phone might be of 'x264 or xvid' codec. Hope this helps :)
amit, 02 Sep 2012I dont know why no Mp4 video is playing on my 5230 3G version... Someone help plz...Hey Amit, I too have this phone I don't have any issues while playing big movies in .mp4 format.
I use 'Any Video Converter' Free Software on my PC to convert videos & then transfer them to my phone.
Check the following:-
1) Select the 'mpeg4' video codec but not 'x264/xvid' codecs.
2) Set video resolution to '640x360' but not greater than that.
3) Set audio codec to 'mp3/aac/wma'.
4) Set fps i.e., Frames per second to 25 or whatever the original video has, I think 5230 runs videos with max 30fps though I'm not sure about 30fps.
In my phone videos with 25fps-28fps run amazingly fine in Real Player.
5) Transfer the converted video to your phone & You're done! ; Hope this helps :)
I've not tried using Nokia's Video Manager in PC Suite Software but I think it works fine too.
jadav rohit, 02 Sep 2012hi dear ,,,there are no songs sown in muisic player,,, after refreshing (0)file add sowing'''a... moreRohit, Try updating your phone's firmware as well as download the updates from 'Software Update', it will resolve the problems. I think you might be having a higher capacity microsd card eg. 8gb, 16gb. When I inserted 8gb card on my phone some of the songs were not showing in the music library but after installing the music player update & firmware updates the problem was resolved.
But specifically in YOUR CASE, I think you should 1st take full backup of your phone on your PC, then do a complete reset including formatting the memory card & hard resetting the phone. Ater doing all that, Restore the backup data to your phone, install the updates & you're done! hope this helps :)
razz, 08 Sep 2012why this model not suppot 'mp4(360p)' ?I think you might perhaps have selected the wrong video codec. I use 'Any Video Converter' software to convert videos on my PC & then tranfer them to my phone. I select the codec 'mpeg4' & Video resolution as '640x360'. also check the frames per second 'fps' In my Nokia 5230, videos with 25-28fps run just fine. I'm not very sure of videos with higher fps. But, I think videos with 30fps run fine too. Also, check your Audio codec 'wma,mp3,aac' are nicely supported. I prefer 'mp3/wma' audio codec.
