Anonymous, 07 Mar 2010its nt expandable to 16gb my friend tried 2 use 8gb card but it hanged like a hell Since you mentioned that putting a 8 gb card in 5130 got it running slow, i bet its firmware version is 6.94 or less. This happens because the media library is being updated. But in firmware 7.91, the mobile doesn't get slow when the media library is getting updated. You should check its response once the update is finished, i bet it will start running smoothly. The reason i am advising is because this exact same thing happened to me. Try it and let us know.
I have 5130 phone. It have good mp3 player but it work 3 or 3 1/2 hours only After bettry low and off the phone.
I want to know why?
The phone specification gives up to 20 hours mp3 player.
But it is not truth. Who can explain me what's wrong with my phone.
Please help me my email firstname.lastname@example.org

It used to be so with their mega bass feature... but all Walkmans they release these days dont have a mega bass feature.
Not sure abt W600.. is it a new or an old model?
BTW higher bass is not equal to better audio quality. Buy a decent headphone to get better bass.
At the end.. buy what you like most.
LG gm200 is another good music phone with good battery backup... but being a LG has its drawbacks like a immature java OS when compared with Nokias and SEs of its class.
Im using this set from past 1 week and i really like it sound is good, battery backup is around 2 to 3 days. i strongly recommend it for any1 having tight budget
Leo, 06 Mar 2010Hey again so this 5130 has the best battery between non touch screen phones? (i personally don... more5220 is good and have similar features to 5130 with a better battery life. But the audio quality is not as good as 5130 and also heard it has too many software issues.
6303 BTW is very good. got 3.2 cam with flash and auto focus... with decent audio quality + 3.5 mm jack.
blue prince o23, 07 Mar 2010 this is not a good phone , try 5310 :)I hope you are kidding..
Hi, I a 5130xm user. I don't have any experience with my battery. I use my phone for mp3s and even watching mtvs.
When I use this for mp3 (around 3-4hrs of continuous play), my battery would last even for 1 1/2 day.
Stand by mode is around 4-5 days.
I can also surf the net using opera.
By the way, I am using 2gig mmc.
Leo, 07 Mar 2010hey... in my country 5130 costs about 120 dollars i was thinking about SE because it has bette... moreIf you just want to ignore the capabilities of 5130 because of its battery backup then i have nothing to say about it. Since you already got a nokia so a change in taste is not bad. Go for it..... Anyways, i would like to point out a thing or two about sound quality. First, high bass reproduction does not signify sound quality, instead it signifies bad frequency response. This is the major difference between nokia and sony ericsson mobiles. Nokia prefers sound quality and clarity instead of self induced high bass. Now its not that nokia does not have bass at all, but it reproduces the sound exactly as its supposed to be. And this is what a good music player should do. I prefer sound quality over high bass so my choice is always nokia. I use an inear headphone with my nokia 5130 and its bass is so high that my ear drums feels like its going to explode. So my point here is that even if you go for 5130 you don't have to compromise with its bass response but you would need a good headphone for it. My email address is email@example.com. Do tell us about your purchage.
hey... in my country 5130 costs about 120 dollars i was thinking about SE because it has better camera, better bass (even though i never compared to 5130)and better battery than any low cost nokia . U see i already have a 6300 and it works fine but i want to change it for another because of the battery lifetime, i hate charging every night. At every store people tell me that i should buy 5130 because it has good sound 3.5mm but they never talk about good battery. U see i love 3.5 mm and a dedicated music chip but id also love a walkman because of the battery lifetime (was thinking about a w600 or some other walkman candy bar) NEED GOOD BATTERY PERFORMANCE!
TY ALL BY THE WAY!!!
Leo, 06 Mar 2010yh i think ill buy this phone but im scared about the battery should i maybe go for a sony eri... moreHi leo, i think you should forget about buying a sony ericsson. Its more expensive, no 3.5mm audio jack, bad screen, low memory support, minimal 3rd party software support(i am not talking about games). 5130 has got the features that a sony can never give for 90 dollars. 5130 would be the best choice for you for very low budget but you will have to compromise for its battery backup. It needs charging everyday.(Tip:charge at night, use at day). Remember that MWC (mobile world congress) chose 5130 as the best music phone under 120 dollars.

Leo, 06 Mar 2010Hey again so this 5130 has the best battery between non touch screen phones? (i personally don... moreIf your priority is music, go for Nokia 5130. It has the best audio in its class and can be compared to ipod too. If you also want a good camera, go for Nokia 6030. It has a 3.2mp with flash camera. The camera in 5130 is not as good; but good enough to view snaps in camera itself (and not on a PC or prints). I hope it helps you make the choice.
I had the same dilemma as you and I have finalised on Nokia 5130 and add a 4GB card to it. ;)
Hey again so this 5130 has the best battery between non touch screen phones? (i personally dont like touch because its toooo fragile and hard to handle)and thank u all for all replies since u guys say that it has a good sound. However i read reviews where 5220 has better battery lifetime than 5130. So which one do u recommend between a good music phone without touch screen and cheap? I was also thinking about 6030 anyways i j
