a7chenko, 01 Jan 2010is it worth to change from 5530 to 5230? what does the package include?not really man both are same phones. 5530 lacks GPS and 5230 lacks Wifi.
bill, 01 Jan 2010i am experiencing a problem with this phone, but there is a high possibility that the fault is... moreBattery full capacity will be reached after several charges. You didnt need to format it, therefore if you unplugged the phone after 2 hrs, when it said baterry charged, you did fine.
However the problem with the fast loss of battery:
- see if you have 3G activated too. If you have it, and not only GSM, and you live in an area where it cant find the signal, it will continue looking for it, and will deplete your battery very fast. Try switching to GSM only for a few days and see how it goes.
- another issue could be with your operator and the software of the phone. This problem has been found before with Samsung S5230 and operator Cosmote (the greek operator, being present in more european countries): samsung 5230 & cosmote were not compatibile, due to the band in which cosmote operates, and result was that battery was depleted completely in less than 2 days, while with Vodafone it lasted up to 7 days. Problem was solved in the end with a software update. Therefore, if you can, please try a SIM from another operator and see if it does the same.
5230 baterry should last around 4 days without any problem, on normal usage.

Sometimes the backup increases after completing a few battery cycles too . .
no need to be alarmed.

i am experiencing a problem with this phone, but there is a high possibility that the fault is completely mine! i bought this phone 4 days ago as a present to myself...i read on reviews that the battery could actually last aproximately up to 3.5 - 4 days with normal usage. I read the manual before using the phone, and said that the first charge should be enough when the phone indicates that the battery is fully charged! As far as i know the first charge should last about 10 - 12 hours. When i started charging the phone it showed that it was fully charged at about 2 hours!! So i stopped charging it. The phone now can barely last 48 hours with less than normal usage!! The first 24 hours the battery indication shows that it is full (7 out of 7 bars) but then in the next 12 - 15 hours is slowly runs completely out of battery!!!!!...is it normal that it runs out so quickly ( perhaps coz the battery needs some time to reach its full capacity) or is it completely my fault?

nokia 5230 is a worthy phone
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Its available at annanagar-Fone city.I have bought it.
supeeeeeeeeer phone 5230 touch phone for 3g,wrold 1st symbian software in low cost pohne on only nokia. i'ts good.9626969696
Please note.... This phone has 3G, but that is restricted to internet access. NOT for video calling. I spent a couple of days running around all Nokia priority stores in Pune, India, but all said exactly the same. None could show me the Video Calling feature. I was made to understand that the HSDPA connection was purely for data....
Finally purchased the 5800.... Which in any case is an excellent phone....
BTW.. i installed lot of stuff from OVI ..but it installed everything on Phone memory without asking for install location (have 1GB memory card)....
anyone ..how to change the default installation location??
Thanks in adv..
I was waiting for release in India, it was available in black market (Mumbai) for 10300/- so i decided to wait...
Had a tie between Samsung and this one...being a Symbian friend since 6630..i decided to wait for a month and that has paid off quite well..
The features are really good..and most imp is my apps installed on E71 works here too (this was main reason to wait for Symbian).... The touch screen is quite responsive..compared to older releases of Nokia...
This squares off the difference between capacitive and resistive screens (again matter of choice!) but for me ..my apps are more imp and the being at home feel (like using Windows, u would hardly like to move to other os..)
the default Roller game is just too good...
Got it for Rs.8200 in Chandigarh , got an 8GB card fr Rs.800 , total Rs.9000 .
Now I am ready to kick the crap out of any smartphone . . .
And those who are concerned about a good camera , buy an SLR for God sake . Cell phones are not meant for that !!
I don't know why do people make a fuss about the phone not charging off micro USB port?
Its actually good, because we usually donot connect the phone to the desktop. When connected to the laptop its good that the phone doesn't drain the laptops battery.
It already has a good battery. Keep it charged.
Is Nokia Maps (Ovi Maps) installed?
How good and comprehensive are the maps?
Does it cover the whole of India?
Is there any trial period available with it for voice navigation?
Does it comes with Opera Mobile 10 pre installed?
What are other apps or games that are pre installed?
