Hi to all I own a 5130 and recently I had my firmware reinstalled.this was bcoz i had inserted a virus infested micro card into my 5130 accidently.I thought that my phone was gone and thought that i had to go to a nokia proirity dealer to get the software reinstalled.But my friend told me that we can reinstall the software from the phone itself.Its very simple go to settings>restore factory settings>Restore all.it will ask to enter 5 digit code just type 12345 and go u r done.BUT REMEMBER bfore this you shud make sure that all your data is safe for this you have create a backup of all the contents and should save it in your PC.Bcoz after restoration all your data will be lost.You need to get the backup file and restore all and you are done.I had this done and all data is safe and the phone is doing fine.For those who know already know just ignore this and for others it will be of great use whenever you got your 5130 bugged.
I have a nokia5130xpressmusic that needs decoding from swisscom network to Lberia Lonestar communication network
Erwin maulana, 29 Oct 2009Is it true?does u're system become slow?i want to try for 8gb card on my 5130.they say that th... moreYes that is true, 8GB also works fine, the good part is it support wmv format movies also..the initial loading of movie to player is bit slow once started it goes smoothly to the end of movie, fast forward when playing movies is fine also...the source movie file which you will convert to mp4 or wmv should be good for better smooth playback..

Nevin Joseph, 28 Oct 2009That's only because you haven't actually used a GM200. if you have, then you wouldn't have any... more@Nevin Joseph:
LG GM200 vs Nokia 5130 head to head:
LG GM200-176x220 pixels
2.gprs 'n edge:
GM200-up to 2gb
5130-up to 16gb
well,i think that's enough,no need to continue,because it will take u're GM200 into heavy defeat.
I speak here for anyone who have low budget (about $100) n wanna have superb phone,LG is great phone but not maximum spec,soner great also but their slow system n memory stick micro (expensive) is problem,samsung limit their application n game (max 3mb),motorola hard to handle (just usually phone).no offence!!

SAMSUNG B2100 now... moreSamsung B2100? Do u friends ever heard about nokia 5500 sport (junk product),i used 5500 for 2 years.B2100 is a product wanna-be or look-a-like for 5500.5500 win from B2100 (although launch more than 3 years ago,n they have same price range).5500 have symbian 8.1 system,display resolution 208x208,camera 2mp,motion sensor,shaking sensor,tapping sensor (i can say,5500 is the first phone for having this kind of three sensor),push to talk,accelorometer,etc.
No match for B2100,it nothing if u fight face to face with 5500.But,still 5500 is junk product,cause their keypad always be the real problem n the display actual size.if my keypad doesn't broke maybe now i still use 5500.i think B2100 will have same end like 5500,sport type never lasting long.i use 5130 now,i feel empty without symbian...hik..hik..

Nevin Joseph, 28 Oct 2009That's only because you haven't actually used a GM200. if you have, then you wouldn't have any... moreNo software support for Nokia is greater than SE.
LG has better battery backup simply becoz of its mediocre low resolution screen...remember that 5130 has 3 times more pixels than gm200.
And you always talks abt your LG GM200 + MDR-ED12LP beating 5130 + SHH9700. You never mentions the fact 5130 + SHH9700 beats gm200 + SHH9700 and 5130 + MDR-ED12LP beats gm200 + MDR-ED12LP.
The software probs...depends on how your friends use it...Its like windows, highly customizable and expandable using 3rd party software but it can get corrupted becoz of its flexibility. The less flexible you OS is more the stability. Software problems are there for SE phones.
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2009Nevin, you are paranoid about your crappy LG,... GO GET A LIFE KIDDOWhy these Nokia and Samsung ppl are so freaked up on me? They fight each other over 'mine is bigger' and whenever I come in, they suddenly join forces as if i'm a nazi...
Why does my words always go unheard? I don't make up things and brainwash other people. I jus tell all the new people here what you fail or ignore to tell them. And it has nothing to do with LG or me. I have seven friends and even my professor owns a 5130. I appreciate for this price it is actually a very good phone. But almost half of them now face software related problems and one of them had to reinstall the firmware as his phone was beatup beyond data recovery. Why does it happen so? Did it ever occur to you? It is a major flaw which you all tend to hide away. If i was in you position, I would rather give the phone back than spend 250rs on a firmware installation.
Still i'm the one who is paranoid na?
Nevin, you are paranoid about your crappy LG,... GO GET A LIFE KIDDO
Asad, 28 Oct 2009Nokia Phone option and network signal is too mush rich from LG or other brand. Nokia use first... moreThat's only because you haven't actually used a GM200. if you have, then you wouldn't have anything to say about. Signal strength? that is four years back mate... Now almost all phones have good reception and multiple band support. So that statement of yours is pointless. functionality wise, I would admit that Nokia might have a slight edge over LG but it is no way near SE phones which supports a million games and applications. For practical usage, LG is the best option. Great battery backup with a pretty decent music player and a superb camera that even beats 6233. My LG GM200 with my Sony MDR-ED12LP earphones beats you Nokia 5130 with even Philips SHH9700 expensive earphones. It is that much of a competition. Check out the pics in GM200 forum if you want to.
