beat, 12 May 2010thanks friend , can u tell me how many seconds 5233 takes 2 play youtube videos ? thanksI use airtel EDGE with my 5233. Even with EDGE speeds, pages load up fairly quickly. The video loads and starts playing as soon as the other page content finish loading. Ant this typically takes around 1 minute. The contents other than the video itself amounts to morethan 1mb.
indieover, 12 May 2010i am not sure if 5230 has usb and memory card included in the philippines. i will ask about it... moreMate.. who told you that? 5233 does have 8x zoom in both image as well as video mode. It can even zoom while recording.
[deleted post]the corby has small screen. i don't like it. i saw it in the store. and based on the reviews here, 5233 seems a bit better than corby.
DrivingThrough., 11 May 2010okay. sorry bout dude. coz corby here in rp just costs 5999. i suggest you go to 6303 classic.... morein what store that sell corby that cheap, maybe 5230 is cheap also there, cause in wellcom stores in Robinson Manila or even in SM manila, corby is 7,353 pesos and 5230 is 7650. maybe it is cheaper in the store where you saw that price. so i can check the price there. what about the tiangges stand inside the malls. where they sell used cellphones and even brand new original cellphones, i asked in one tiangge inside the Robinson manila, the 5230 is 7,200 pesos with 2 GB memory card. how do we check if the nokia is original and not fake.

It is just limited by the amount of interna... morei am not sure if 5230 has usb and memory card included in the philippines. i will ask about it. but if not, then i will just buy the 5233. what about your 5230, does it come with usb and card.
does 5230 camera has zoom in function in taking picture. i know that 5233 does not have zoom in. as i like the zoom in feature also in a camera.
i like 5230's 3g, but 1000 difference is quite big amount also and i am not sure if i will use the internet of the phone often as i have internet already at home with my pc. as i was thinking that i may only enjoy it at first then won't use it that often after some time. is the internet very useful for you also. is GPRS too slow to connect to internet for 5233.
and GPS. i don't think i will be that interested to use it anyways,
One disappointment is unable to receive/make video calls, Apart from that my new 3.5G BSNL working greatly nice speeds than my sis... I love this phone.
Rishi, 12 May 2010does the mobile application locker work normally or does the nokia 5230 have to be hacked for ... moreOh you don't need to hack your phone for this app to work. It doesn't even require registeration. All it does is prompt for a pin number that you set for the services you wish to lock. So each time you try to access a service like meaasging, the software automatcally starts up and asks the pin to start the particular service. The advantage is that this app can lock any service that the phone runs including system services.

The 5233 is also available in Australia.
I have a catalogue from a local shop advertising the unit for $199 Australian dollars.
Please understand the 5233 is not just for the Indian market. It is definitely not exclusive to India.
