Surya Singh, 17 Feb 2010@ Everyone whos comparing this Phone to Samsung & LG .... haha ..... Let me tell you a lit... moreCorrection Bro :
5230 is NOT the cheapest SmartPhone. This crown belongs the its sibling, i.e. Nokia 5233.
And 5230 Does support xvid codec. I have watched around 8-10 movies on my 5230 encoded in the following format :
Video Coded : Xvid
Container : Mp4
Resolution : Varies from 624 x 352 to 640 x 360
Bitrate : Varies from 350 - 800
Audio format : LE AAC
Bitrate : 32-96
FPS : 23.98 to 25.00
No problem at all !
Recently read in news that Nokia 5230 Nuron going to be launched in US on 17th March not aware about India this is the answer to shops who are misguiding customers saying 5230 is not good some even go to extent of saying 3G is not there in 5230 and will hand you with 5233

@ Everyone whos comparing this Phone to Samsung & LG .... haha ..... Let me tell you a little SECRET.
"Samsung Corby & LG COOKIE are not Smart Phones" ...... SURPRISED Kya !!!!!
Nokia 5230 is clearly a SmartPhone ...... Errrrr!!! ....... Actually the CHEAPEST SmartPhone in the face of this planet. So if et all you wanna compare Nokia 5230, dont just compare it to corby n cookie because of the price point. But compare it to a real SMARTPHONE because of its Category & Features AND BELIEVE me when I say that Nokia 5230 can CLEARLY be compared to iPhone 1st Gen Phone. The only feature that it will FAIL in front of an iPhone is the SCREEN n I guess we all know the difference.
GARIBON Ka iPHONE :)
The CHOICE is all Yours.
@prasad @Tech lover @Khan & @Everyone who wants to buy a new Nokia 5230
Guys PLEASE Dont RUSH & PLEASE Dont listen to any of those STUPID Shopkeepers or anyone who says that this PHONE had a problem. They are only interested in SELLING You something if they dont have what you are asking for. JUST Show them your MIDDLE Finger.
Nokia 5230 is CLEARLY not available everywhere right now because Initially it was released only as a "PREVIEW Release" & now since the MOBILE CONGRESS has already happened so now Nokia 5230 will be mass produced accross the world by Mid-March. So dont RUSH in & buy 5233 only if you are not at all interested in 3G & GPS because 5233 lacks both.
Nokia5230 doesnt has any sought of problem, I have been using it for the PAST 3 Weeks.
Just wait till Mid March.
Baap, 16 Feb 2010JUST rubbish.samsung e1410 is far better than tis fone.cheapest fun mobile ever made

I would appreciate if anybody could let me know if they have successfully used USB method for updating firmware ? If yes, anything I need to take care of ?
Want to buy Nokia 5230 in mumbai anywhere it is availaible as many say its replaced by 5233 all bal*s
@ Mr. Khan
Nokia 5230 hands down is the best phone at that price have called nokia sevice centre it has no software issues only thing the marketing strategy is flop and shop keepers are only faking Nokia 5233 no 3G is the same and advance than Nokia 5230
In fact 6 of us went to buy Nokia 5230 but its not availaible so we dint buy Nokia 5233 will never go for this one
Nokia should take note of this in fact Nokia 5230 was selling like hot cake in Indian market and has high demand
I stay in Malad(W) have searched for Nokia 5230 in Goregaon Kandivali even called many shops across mumbai many of them were saying its discontinued and 5233 is better than it(Bullshit)cant understand why Nokia is not marketing it in India when it available outside India
I am not going to buy Nokia 5233 as it has no 3G and GPS
also contacted NOkia Email:email@example.com
they are not replying
Any clue where its available in Mumbai and price with bill waranty
