Just now I bought this, sound and battery back is good but while making a call you have to reduce volume otherwise people listen. one bad thing is it is difficult to open back cover.
Does this phone supports USB connection with PC? GsmArena made a mistake when saying that nokia 1200 doesn't have USB port but i bought phone and i clearly saw that ih has. So i am just hoping that they made another mistake...did they? PLEASE respond...
I have this phone since a wk now- my experiences-
Keypad is a negative-hard to press,can't sms fast,mostly more than a key gets pressed. pressing with fingernail tips makes them ache after sometime. using pulp of finger -produces errors with more than 1 key presses.
another negative is back cover- very hard to remove even with good finger nails. first time i removed it i was scared i would break it.
Rest of the features is just fine for a basic phone.
Radio is very good and clear.
Signal reception and call clarity very good
Battery backup very good.
How i wish If the key pad was softer....it could have been a perfect basic phone. Now its upto u to decide to buy it or not. but if u decide to buy it, surely take a trial of keypresses with the real phone before buying it.
just bought it, but the keypad it's not so hard as they say,the speaker is so loud and clear, but while in a conversation you have to put the volume almost to minimum because other people can hear what the other people is talking to you, weird stuff..i love how the radio starts on a press of a button :x and also the red-black design is great
i feel this phone is best for elders who have less habits of sending sms's. the keypad's are too hard, but one way its better as water will never get inside it easily. the battery backup is too good
hiiiiiiiiii wonderful phone the radio is superb with built in anteena nokia is king company
tejash, 01 Sep 2009I am going to buy nokia 5030 . I want your suggetion gays May I take this?Well Tejash it is a good phone i have just purchased one the radio without attaching earphones is cool, sound is too nice and bettery life is superb but i felt little bit hard when typing on the keypad overall it is a nice phone to buy in the range.
I finally got hold of this phone.
FM Radio, Loudspeaker, good battery life, good call sound.
Hard keypad, back cover is hard to open.
After all, it's good as a low-end phone.

negatives of this phone- cannot send sms fast u will have to use a pen to press it. very low ring tone, you will need to download tones to have louder ringtone. opening the back cover is very very difficutlt.
This phone is phone for ppl who listen to radio more. Texting( sms) is very very difficult. If you dont u dont send sms and listen radio and make calls buy this else dont buy it.
Hi, I aslo bought Nokia 5030, reviews are:
Plus points: Big screen, Radio sound quality, supports many languages
Weak points: Low ringtone volume, hard keypad, catch bit poor signal for radio.
keypad very poor.i already bought one.sound is better than others model.
I would say this is a value for money phone. Plus points r-good size and feel to hold, good signal reception, good sound,very good battery life. bad r-very hard keypad and difficult to avoid typing errors and difficult to message fast, quite heavy.Please dont say no camera,bluetooth,IR r bad points as nokia never claimed that this set has all those and buyers r aware of this before buying.
