Just because it is a new released model, doesn't mean it has all the features. This is a basic phone with basic camera. It was never designed to be top of the line. it was designed to be a regular phone. possibly a secondary phone to most users. Don't call it crap just because it doesn't meet your needs. Its very inexpensive. I gave one to my 9 year old sister because she didn't want a large memory phone. She just wanted to be able to use the bluetooth and camera. For less than $100, do you expect to get High-Tech features!? Please think before you post. It makes you sound like you don't know what you're talking about.
It's a really cool phone...I got mines yesterday and it's awsome...I'm trying to go through everything like all the features and things i paid $800 in my country for it. It's really nice!! You'll really enjoy using it.
this phone is a peice of crap. phones 3 yrs older hav more memory then this thing.
yea mates this phone is crap it looks good but crap u cant get memz card in it cya mates
cant believe i wasted £50 on this crap phone for my daughters xmas present no memory only holds 2 songs great for a teenager that loves music do yourself a favour DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE!!!!!
Why this model doesn't have extended memory?, even though it has all other features?
Its easy to use but doesn't have extended memory, Otherwise the Nokia 5000 is excellent
Anonymous, 23 Dec 2008Why is it the time on my message is delay? How can i set the time in the message?Isn't your phone's time delayed but the comunication manufacturer, i mean probably they have an -6 time and your country is an -5 timeif that isnot the fact probably you have set the time wrong, kind of 5-10 Min earlier or later... i have the same problem but i can live with that xD
I think it's a nice phone.
Shame about it not having a memory card slot and a usb port
now i cant listen to music how rubbish.
I have this phone and it's great but the downside of it is that the memory slot isn't very good =( I only had 2 songs on it and it's already full. Any suggestions??

i got Nokia 5000 last night and it looks pretty nice and workable. but i got 2 problems. 1... moreJust press the call disconnect or on/off button once and then teh time will be displayed for 2 seconds even if the phone is on lock mode.
Time I have no solution, just realied i am having the same problem.
I just need to know on the log there is this option of positioning.. what is it and how it is used.
this pjone is the best phone i have had im 12 years old and this phone is cool it has everything i need and is really easy to handle (buy this phone)
Why is it the time on my message is delay? How can i set the time in the message?
If you guys wanted to store your music in your phone.. you shouldn't even consider this model because of the memory.
Its sooo kool because im sick of all those other fansy phones. I just need a stylish new easy to use phones im only 12 so all i need it is to call pplz wen i need to. And i got it in purple so its really kool they didnt hav it in green or blue but i like wat i got... so thanx for who eva made this phone its so kool!!! :)
this handset is a great one... been using it for 3 days already and so far no problem. considering the price, we really can't demand for a memory expansion slot. if you want, buy the nokia 3110classic just shell out more money for that, but you'll have to give up this phone's style (thin and great screen!).
the screen has a small problem if you're using dark themes... there's a glaring effect... you feel like you're reading texts immediately after waking up from a long sleep hahaha. brighter themes (no black background) are suggested to solve the problem.
battery is also good compared to nokia 2630. the operating system allows you to send sms quickly as this phone allows you to type the first few letters of the person and click "match" using the navikey (like the Symbian OS 60 of Nokia)... its a great help compared to lower model units that would require you to choose from favorite/recently used/call register etc.
all in all, i would give this phone an 8/10 rating. go for this if you want a basic call and text phone with style and basic features. =)
