ankit, 18 Dec 2009hey hiiiiii n thanks c4rl ..bt tell me one thing which one is best NOKIA 5230 OR NOKIA E63..bo... moreWhen comparing those two it all depends on whether you like a touch phone or a full qwerty keypad... But if you ask me, I prefer 5230 for it's shape which is more pocket-friendly than the e63 and you can use either normal typing or full qwerty which I think is more flexible as you can type the 5230 with just one hand... All in all they're almost as good as the other and comes down to what you think you'll be more comfortable with...
hey hiiiiii n thanks c4rl ..bt tell me one thing which one is best NOKIA 5230 OR NOKIA E63..both price range is almst similar!1

This is how it looks like.
bought this phone for just 8000 peso...its so cheap..
the package i have is different it has a 4GB card but no changable back covers. it also has stylus..
JONY, 16 Dec 2009i want 2 buy this phone....but after reading the specifications i don't understand the music q... moreSound quality on the loudspeaker is mediocre not just mono and the volume is not high enough. Sound quality on good earphones (just about any earphones that are not bundled) is superb. If sound quality on earphones is not good enough, then it's the earphones limitation. Hope this helps.
This is a good replacement for my old nokia n73 but when is it avaible in South Africa samsung star / corby is avaible hope it will be less than R2000-00.
Difference between 2G and 3G...
Well they are all about data download speeds.
So if you use your phone for internet browsing over your network provider (and not Wi-Fi) the speed of data download will increase considerably provided :
1. Your network provider is 3G compliant
2. Your phone supports 3G
3. You have 3G activated on your mobile no.
The speeds of 3G are in the range of 384 kbps to 10 Mbps. 5230 support maximum 3.6 Mbps. But the speed you'll get will be determined by your network provider according to your 3G data plan.
3G speed are also high enough to support videocall i.e. if the person you want to talk to has the above three requisite and plus he/she has a secondary videocall camera on his/her phone (which by the way Diamond2's 3G version has) you will be able to talk to them by looking at him/her on your screen and he/she will be able to do the same.
Unfortunately 5230 doesn't has a secondary camera, so 3G will be limited to data downloads.
i want 2 buy this phone....but after reading the specifications i don't understand the music quality of this phone.....pls anyone tell me who's all ready got this phone....
AMEET, 15 Dec 2009i bought this phone today it seems great,but i could not install "sis" games and the music pla... moreNever had any problems installing sis files. Installed nUnlock, Quickoffice, Adobe reader, opera mini and mobile and a few games. Maybe you just need to update it's firmware. There's an equalizer in this phone you can even create your own presets.
btw, After upgrading the firmware the audio quality on earphones got better. The 5530's audio quality can't even compare to this phone (and yes, I used the same create ep-630's on the 5530).
i bought this phone today it seems great,but i could not install "sis" games and the music player dos not have equalizers but the phone works great!!!!and its UI is a lil tricky to use with fingers some times.This phone is for those who cant afford a XM5800 and it dos live up to its name :)
Hi Jacky, I have the same issue, and also when using GPS, its very hard to search for satellite, but after changing the SIM card, (another SIM card with only 2G package),it does not happen again, you must also upgrade to software version V11.0.079 using PC suite.
Is it true that this phone does not have stereo sound? The review says so.
enzo, 14 Dec 2009does this phone have a stylus?Yes this phone has a stylus.

when i first saw this phone in the mall it costs around PHP10k, i thought it was a complete waste of money, but after just two weeks the price went down to PHP7.7k, amazing..its cheaper than the wifiless samsung star and its a smartphone, i'll consider this mobile when the need to replace my phone comes up. wish there was a cameraless and gpsless version of this one, i really couldn't use the camera, or the gps, but i would make a good organizer and movie or music player.
