You should turn it ON only when you need it just like Bluetooth or FM Radio. You can turn it on when you need navigational help or want to trace your journey.

Hi, farhan, emir and other people on this blog. friends after reading ur reviews i wanted to buy nokia 5230 but i m not getting it in stores at present. i searched in few nokia prio, the mobile store, one mobile but its not der. by the way i stay in mumbai- kandivali. I hav few questions. 1. which stores r nokia priority as der r many with nokia written on board. how is THE MOBILE STORE with their attractive schemes. wht about ONE MOBILE shop. 2. what do u get on purchase of mobile as a warranty. is it warranty card or just bill? 3. after long search, in one nokia store he is having 5230 but saying its just used for 1 day by customer but wants to replace now. he is ready to give with bill and warranty & may be somewhat less price. but price is not the issue. should i take risk for it & take it. pls guide. 4. or should i take 5233 instead from THE MOBILE STORE as they r giving philips headphone free with it. mobile price 8000/- there. 5. OR should i opt for samsung star or corbys finally. PLS GUIDE. thanx in advance.
comprehensive cell phone in a affordable price available in Pakistan with all the basics and advance features. I like it..........
Will any cheap USB bluetooth dongle work for connecting to 5230 via PC suite or it has to be of particular brand and specification ?
@SR, I have a question ... If I activate GPS, will it consume battery continually? If so, if wise to keep it turned off, only to turn on as & when needed? Thanx.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Hi Rose My suggestion for you is to go for 5230
If you don't use Wifi and video calling then surely go for 5230. If you wnat Wifi and video calling go for 5800.
Although I have used 4 new pieces of 5800, I found same problem in all phones, Problem with screen display. when Startin up phone the display dances in colours and when some times the phone is unlocked and specially when you are using 64K old sim card.
It's a hardware failure which is fixed in 5230. I have tested 5230 and now am using this.
You dont get a 8GB memory card and data cable with 5230 thats it
gggg, 10 Feb 2010can we download themes for 5230?plz help100 Nokia theames for 5230 & 5800...
Most of the theams work without sign or hack so enjoy and there are more stuff for mobile
i started using it yesterday but the only draw back is that you have to buy the memory card and it's affecting my choice cause i really like it...............
just bought this cell yesterday n was a bit confused abt it but after reading peoples opinion now m feeling high :) n in love with my 5230 :)
Suryasmanipal, 10 Feb 2010Thank you for your valuable answer.I have one more question to ask that is - as i am a student... moreYes, you can. The office software will work with both text and picture elements of a file. It'll be same as you see the file in your PC, though on a small screen.

SR, 10 Feb 2010Hi, Suryasmanipal. I presume that you are from India (as I am). Here's a link for the official... moreThank you for your valuable answer.I have one more question to ask that is - as i am a student i used to read notes in.doc,.pdf,.ppt formets in notebooks.can i view similarly(ie. word with pictures and graphs) in nokia 5233 by installing quick office or Adobe reader software?
Thanks in Advance.
I bought this phone a few days ago.The phone is awesome,everything is soo great,the camera result is even better than that of 5800,sound in speakers is low but in headphones its awesome.touch is response is too good!!gr8 work nokia!
iam using nokia 5233,overall the set is good but the only drawback is the ring tone its too low to hear inspite of the volume set at max level.
Suryasmanipal, 10 Feb 2010Hi SR,I am willing to buy nokia 5233 tommarrow(11-2-10).Please answer to my following question... moreHi, Suryasmanipal. I presume that you are from India (as I am). Here's a link for the official (Nokia, India) specs of Nokia 5233 : http://www.nokia.co.in/find-pr...age=inthebox
It has no mention of GPS. 5233 doesn't has GPS in it (confirmed) but still you can ask you retailer about it.
GPS basically is a hardware chipset, or antenna you can say, coupled with a software. This antenna communicates with GPS satellites orbiting our planet and gets us our exact position on a map/software. It doesn't require GPRS/3G connectivity as a necessity.
A-GPS is a part of "GPS software" that help you get GPS data quickly over the internet through GPRS/3G.
Tchnically, without GPS A-GPS has no worth. I am saying this because 5233 is a Symbian based phone, just like 5230 or 5800 (that has GPS antenna built-in in them) so you can get GPS software along with A-GPS installed on it but it'll not work with out GPS antenna.
Also point to note that you can get an external GPS antenna that'll work with a non-GPS phone (like 5233) with bluetooth and get you your exact location on the map/software.
Nokia has such external GPS antennas or GPS modules that you can buy. You can check them out here : http://www.nokia.co.in/find-pr...module-ld-4w
Remember that this device works with your phone and that your phone should have a GPS software/map installed on it.
Now about GPS software/map : Nokia Ovi Maps is one such software. You can download and save it in your phone itself and there is no need for continuous download over the air through GPRS/3G. But if you have GPRS, it'll certainly help as it'll support A-GPS and other features of Ovi Maps that need data connection.
Ovi map also comes with Voice Navigation but I'm not sure if there is one available for 5233 as there is no GPS in it.
Whether you can use the one for 5230 should be confirmed from Nokia care ( http://www.nokia.co.in/get-sup...kia-careline )
Most camera phones has CMOS sensor. There is not much difference from CCD. CMOS is not a chinese technology. What is actually bad is that its not auto focus, its fixed focus. Its an average camera. Video Recording is good though, VGA resolution @ 30 frames per second.
