Ashiq, 14 Jan 2016Hey,friend,Nokia,230 support WhatsApp .go to WhatsApp website and goto downloads there is s40 ... moreThink your getting confused with the Nokia Asha 230 my friend released in 2014. It amazes me people still get confused with the (Microsoft) nokia branded phones and the fact they used phones with no asha branding. There are no plans to use s40 or s60 just the crap s30+ its not very good software to be honest. Asha was always different than just the plainnold
Nokia xxx type phone. Now people get confused with Nokia and Microsoft. All these phones are Microsoft phones using Nokia branding! Also Microsoft did not buy Nokia it only bought the phones division and right to use the name
The best selling mobile phone of all time is a Nokia phone...
It was the revolutionary Nokia 1100!
Nokia is always very good and trustworthy in this kind of phones!
230 is better than 225 because of better build quality and also having two cameras both with led flash.

Nokia always leaves footprints in our eyes and in our hearts with such beautifully designed phones.The white 230 is extremely beautiful!
True strength exists in the spirit and creativity,not in muscles.I like Nokia mobiles and moreover i like the design of 230...Simply unmatched by any other phone!
vico, 11 Jan 2016My cheap android smartphone supports whatsapp and has everything I need. (wifi, autofocus, no ... moreThere are still people who want these phones. People who just want a non-frills phone with basic connectivity options. Nigeria, India are still part of the world where people will be more than content with such products.
It is true that the product is overpriced a bit but the design doesn't suck like the other feature phones it is competing with.
Atleast this phone should be made on S60 platform with multitusking. Don't know why nokia or microsoft hide S60 platform and continuously releases phones on S30 or S40 platforms which are more useless in these smartphone era.If they bring these phones with S60 platform, there will be a tough competetion between low budget androids and nokia. Now what Nokia/Microsoft thinks is totally uncontemporary.

This is not a smartphone.This is a feature phone and it is a very good phone.
No 4g, even 2G!...
When Nokia completely left planet EARTH, we'll have it as better than before.
This phone would have been a better small, smart and luxury phone if Nokia had allow it to support the JAVA Apps (MIDP).
230 is only a brother of 215, 220, 225. It doesn't support any downloadable app. It hasn't Whattsapp. Internet capability, very limited, 2G network, only browsing on some sites, no email. Can't read any document. Some phones have problems with microphone and/or speaker, voice leakeage. This phone is really good only for calls, sms, pictures (only 2 mp camera...). The OS of the phone is S30+, which is garbage, worst than S40 of precedent (and real) Nokia phones. There are many feature phones available on market with better specs than S30+ phones from Nokia/Microsoft.
is this good for using fb messenger? using only mobile data and is viber available?
also can somebody share their opinion about buying this unit thanks.
