I had this phone for a year and it was great, it survived being run over by a bus so its really good for people who aren't really careful with phones. Only downfall is the phone is kinda bulky but not heavy.
i have been using this phone for close to 2years and really i love it,its a grate phone.
been using this fone for almost 2 yrs now... and i really pleased, sometimes the speakers suddenly does work but i just give it a shake or a slap and it works again hahaha... well im happy with its overall performance and lookinh to use it for another year before i change phones.
The most common problem about this phone is the speaker, after about a year having this phone, the speaker sometimes doesn't sound anymore, looks like the speaker contact lead misaligned or some kind of it. I heard that 5300 has the same problem too.
Second problem is the rubbery case seem too fast to get dirty, you need some kind of hand pocket to keep this phone out of dirt, I have red one and it gets almost dark red by now.
And the worst, is because the rubbery material used for the case, the rubber can get hard and cracked easily. I have this phone for 2 years now and the rubber case cracked everywhere...
This phone surely not for rough user like me...
I have had this phone for over 2 years now and its nothing but rubish! i get no reception under any sort of roof like shopping centers, cinemas, even my own room! battery dies everyday, the speaker is not working anymore so i just have to guess when someone is ringing me! im so sick of this phone...if i had the money to buy something better i would but in the mean time i just have to live with it...i have been doing it for the past 2 years!!! arrrgggghhh
am using this 5200 from past 1 yr
everything fine except the inbt memory
but its a great phone..................

I have a Nokia 5200 with AIRTEL sim card. Problem is, it received local sms's. But It has not received std sms's.
i love this phone i have been using it for 3 years now and it still has no problem. is this normal? its creeping me out. and i also learned that when u use this phone long enough it gets busted. its completely scary! weirdly scary!
Very nice mobile. Cheap but good for music lovers. Used it for more than one and half years. But finally, it's memory card IC stopped working. That's probably because I dropped it many times. Still, great value for money.
as i read all of your comments, i got nervous because my mom is abroad and she just ent me this nokia 5200 phone and on the way to our house now. i have been researching about the phone and found out that it hangs a lot. I think nokia should do something about this... it is about the customer's gurantee that this phone works good.
