Santosh, 15 Feb 2010Can you tell me why the company had stipped the production whether there is any problem with it?@Santosh
The Company never actually STOPPED the Production of Nokia 5230.... It was just waiting for the Official Release Worldwide & Now Since the Mobile CONGRESS is happening right now so Nokia 5230 should be officially available worldwide by Mid March. The Initial Release was just a Preview Release & hence its not available in Market right now.
And NO there is nothing WRONG with Nokia 5230 ....... SO RELAX !!!

Please STOP the NONSENSE of Creating More n More CONFUSION. Nokia 5230 has a 256 MB RAM ever since it has been Released ........ I Repeat EverSince the First day. Making a MOBILE is not a Kids Game that Nokia will keep adding & removing Stuff every now and then. It takes More then a YEAR for the whole PROCESS of Planning, Designing & Mass Producing a Mobile Phone.
Even the MRP of Nokia 5230 is Rs 9389/- ever since it was launched in INDIA. Its Printed on the BOX. The only thing is that People in different parts of INDIA get it for a different Price Point depending on TAXES.
You can certainly WAIT all that you want but dont expect any changes. Nokia 5230 is going to be as it is n as it was in the ORIGINAL Format.
Today it was already the First Day of "Mobile CONGRESS" n 5230 is Nokias New Muscle Power so everyone in India can now expect Nokia 5230 by Mid march if et all the Big Mobile companies like TATA, Reliance Airtel or Virgin let it PASS.
PLEASE STOP CONFUSING PEOPLE.

Hey Rohit, You are answering your own question & the answer being the CLEAR Difference in Technology. 3G is the latest Tech that the Mobile Internet World has to offer while using a Modem is Pity Much OLD School.
Firstly I am assuming that you are located somewhere where 3G Internet is available (US, UK,...) Now whats happening is your mobile obviously detects the 3G and you must be able to use the Full 3G Broadband Speed when using Internet on ur Mobile ..... so no probs thr But the way in which u are trying to access Internet on ur Computer using ur Mobile as a MODEM is degrading the SPEED.
There is CLEARLY a HUGE Difference in both the ways in which you are trying to connect & access Internet. Your service provider might have created an access point in ur mobile phone so every time when u try to connect to the internet from ur PC ...... ur PC connects to the Mobile modem while the modem dials out using that access point.
PC > Modem > Access Point (which automaticaly converts ur 3G to Dialup connection)
So CLEARLY and Legally there is NO way to connect to ur 3G Broadband on ur PC. Buttttt........ there is something that you can do
1st thing: If WiFi would have been present in Nokia5230 then you would have been able to use it as a 3G WiFi Router & would have easily connected to it over your wireless device. But since 5230 lacks WiFi you'll have to go shopping for a WiFi Antenna for ur Mobile (Its available in US, UK ) and you would be able to connect to ur 3G BB on ur PC wirelessly.
2nd Thing: Bluetooth - WiFi Bridge...... Now through this device you will directly be able to connect to the device over Bluetooth and the Bridge cum Router will connect to ur PC through wires or wirelessly. So You should be able to gget the 3G Internet on ur PC.
But yes I do understand its pity much a very advanced configuration. But we cant HELP it I guess.
There was a software route though but seems like Nokia has taken care of it in their latest device lineup.... so it aint working anymore. You can search for it though on GOOGLE and Give it a SHOT Yourself. I cant explain the software route in here cause its very lengthy and includes SCREWING Your Mobile here n there & Mostly in the end its NOT gonna work.
I bought an 5230, good phone, as being my secondary phone. I noted that the lock/unlock key ie a little "loose", If I shake the phone I can hear it boucing, it remembers me my 1st generation N97... anyone else has noted this?

I understand you are looking for GPS signal in offline mode but then what exactly are you doing or not doing to get it. Now how does anyone here know what exactly are you looking for and how is everyone supposed to HELP You. So a Bit more detail would always be appreciated.
Anyways ---- First things First try for a GPS signal only when you are outside because indoors either the signal will be too weak or just not be there.
Try This: GoTo Menu > Applications > Location > GPS Data
Select Options > Satellite Status
Then Just wait for sometime while the Satellites Show up as Bars & Your Mobiles Location is Locked.
Just reply back with your results.
Sandeep, 15 Feb 2010Hey sahil i totally agree with you nokia had again started the production of this phone in ind... moreAnother BAKWAAS & New Confusion ever since Akshay Talked on the FORUM
Nokia 5230 ever since it was released had a 256 MB RAM in it. The One that I bought around 3 weeks back also has a 256 MB RAM. The only problem is that you guys talk n just talk without understanding the TERMINOLOGY & TECHNICALITY.
The Memory Cum Storage that Nokia 5230 has is called 256MB NAND FLASH -- Now understand this,
256 MB NAND = 128 (SDRAM) + 128 FLASH (STORAGE)
Now the 128 MB SDRAM is used by 5230 exactly the way
our computers use Memory ...... Right ????
The other 128MB FLASH Memory is used for File STORAGE purposes exactly the way our Computers have a HARD DISK ...... Right ????
Now the 128 MB FLASH Memory is divided in to 3 partitions A: C: E: where by A: is used to install the Symbian OS of the mobile phone .... E: is used to install the Nokia Apps & Games and C: (70 MB) is the Partition that we get to install or save our Files (Messages, themes, ...etc)
NOTE: A: (ROM) & E:(SYSTEM) are hidden System Partitions so no one would see them.
Now about the Price --- Ever Since Nokia 5230 is available in India its MRP is Rs 9389/- thats printed on the BOX. But the thing is that its the Max Retail Price so obviously you might be charged a lot less then that depending on your location in India & the kind of TAX that your local Retailers have to pay. We in Bombay have to pay a lot of taxes so here the price is on higher end. One very important TIP --- Please just dont buy the CELL from somewhere where the Price is the CHEAPEST because there is a very HIGH Chaance that you might end up buying a "BLACK MARKET" Phone so then dont expect any sought of HELP from NOKIAs End because they can make out your "BLACK MARKET" Phone using the IMEI Number. So Take Care on that FRONT.
Planning, Designing & Mass Producing a Mobile Phone is not a Kids Backyard Game the way you guys are TALKING About. Its Looks like such a JOKE to you all that Nokia would add & remove stuff from a Mobile Phone every now and then. HUUHhh!!!!!
It Takes More then a Year before a particular Model or any Modification Enters the Mass Market. GOD Only knows what is it that you guys are THINKING.
"PLEASE THINK BEFORE YOU TALK & DONT CREATE MORE CONFUSIONS""
Hey sahil i totally agree with you nokia had again started the production of this phone in india and they have do even certain changes in it like memory raise to 250 mb and even the price has been raise to 9230 and there has been much more chance of stereo speakers
this time and after its release it would become again of rs.8000 because nokia downs its product price very frequently
