Hello, based on my experience this is THE BEST & CHEAP mobile phone. It has one of the best audio quality to offer. I've just upgraded the firmware to 7.95 & it is working absolutely PERFECT. I did had Memory problems though. If anyone's having the same problem then they should use the software called "OXYCUBE", it'll definitely help you people with your memory problems. The reason for memory low is, when ever you apply the themes to your phone, the copy of that is stord in phones's memory which eventually eats up all the memory. Even when you delete the theme or restore the phone, the copy of these themes or video's or ETC. won't erase. It's is stored in a HIDDEN file folder in phone memory. But With OXYCUBE you can see all the hidden folders in the phone and can get rid of these copied files. It did work for me. Apart form the memory problem, my 5130 is working absolutely fine withou any hardware or software problems.
i am goining to buy nokia 5130 pls explore me main problums which helps me to buy that

By my the one and a half year existence of my phone i had already made the wisest decision for it- i didn't upgrade its firmware!
it's still 6.xx.xx and i thought the phone was working so smoothly that i actually never needed to upgrade it. then voila, the phone's still so great.
Buying 5130 is safe. just make sure you don't upgrade its firmware.

You can also go for SONY in-ear models.
Kratos, 08 Jul 2010Hi, can i use sony ericsson Headset Hpm 77 in my nokia 5130? or could you tell me what good he... moreYes you can use HPM-70, 72, 77, 80 etc can be used with Nokia 5130. If you are going to buy a new earphn then dont go for HPM series cos they usually come with a pin configuration and a remote that cannot be used with 5130, u can only use the part with the 3.5mm jack.
it is a nice phone,it has faster internet and java.but one problem,if you upgrade the phone software,it would be slower
it has software problem it cant be fix by a format...
so you should be aware of bluetooth...

If the firmware is not 7.xx then DON'T take it to NOKIA CARE for repair. They will flash it with 7.95/96 and new problems will start to arise. Ask a friend who has some knowledge in flashing phns to flash her phn with firmware 6.94.
GSM.Arena.Lover.Boy, 30 Jun 2010Shut up everyone! NOKIA 5130 Is Really Cool Phone! Everyone here is just freaking out wr... moreyup its truely agree with that.. The sound quality is really awesome and the internet connection is fast..
This is truely based in my own exp but I own a Nokia 5300 and my friend own a Nokia 5130 (this phone).. I was impressed by this phone coz it able to play video in background.. Well i used to use the phone by her permission.. At work i listen to music using the headset and the sound quality coming from this phone is greater than Nokia 5300.. Opera Mini 4.2 is installed and the internet connection is faster than my Nokia even though im using Opera Mini 5.0.. The music player can change skins and yeah my friend's phone is rocks than my own Nokia 5300.. But one day my friend say her Nokia 5130 got virus.. Well i think that impossible.. More over she don't even own a Micro Sd in her Nokia 5130.. I have a look at the phone and all the stuff in the phone memory are dissappear and empty.. At first she turn off the phone and remove the battery and all the stuff and then reinsert it.. She used restoring the setting and restore all too.. But it didnt help.. And the nokia 5130 cannot open music player,equalizer,opera mini,and default browser after the bug.. I told her to flash her phone.. Im not an expert anyway.. I was really impressed by this phone before and im thinking of buying it and replace my old Nokia 5300 but now im not gonna do that and im staying with this little Nokia 5300.. It never give me a bug though.. So peoples before you buy this phone please Google 'Nokia 5130 bug' and then think twice.. Im not against Nokia, imma Nokia user and i just want people to think wisely before buying this phone.. X)
