i have this fone and i really love it even without wifi i can have my free internet 24/7. i love the responsive touchscreen,even if its 2mp but the camera is very good and the sound is very clear.i have no problems with this fone.its the best fone i ever had.the quality is very good for the cheap price.tanx nokia...
I have this phone for almost 1 year already.this phone totally great at performance. although the camera just 2 megapixel out of nothing.(no geo tagging or autofocus, flash etc.) it came great for me to take some picture.the quality picture is excellent that make your forget that it's just 2 megapixel. overoll is nice for those who need 'basic' touch screen with 3G and GPS.
By the way those who don't know, there's a new update for Music player for this model and 5800 and X6.
the updates features embedded lyric lyrics of the song playing on your device.isn't it nice right?
After updating,then click on Options menu of Now Playing view to enable this feature when lyrics are available.Make sure that songs that playing included with lyric. To update, go to Menu > Applications > SW Update

Ramesh Shah, 20 Dec 2010Please tell whether this (nokia 5230) phone's GPS would work in offline mode (without sim card... morehi ramesh i ve a similar query. cud u find the answer pl. thanx for ur help
i mean i pay 0.25dollars for 25MB of 3g data for a day. thats pretty much as good as free.. but unlike wifi, its everywhere..
letsjustsay the last thing am doing is complaining...
i c guys here saying bad fone bad fone... check out the specs of the 5800, aside from wifi, sec. camera and 3.2mp wit flash its the EXACT same fone... but how much r u payin? nearly half..
plus, unless u r a waiter at a cafe wit wifi, its pointless to talk about the fone not having it.. 3g is much more applicable n widespread.. and if ur not too into photographing and more keen on video rec, its the fone for u. PERIOD. 640x480 at 30fps is the kind of thing u only c on N series..
only thing i certainly wouldnt mind is a videocall camera. that would complete the fone.
one of the reasons y this fone is so cheap is coz nokia didnt spend much in research and dev't coz ther was already 5800 and 5530 on the market..
BLIV ME, ITS THE BARGAIN OF THE YEAR.... END OF DISCUSSION
Its very good phone.30fps video recording gives high quality videos.the sound is better

5230 good phone. Is entry level smartphone cost is good better than samsung galexy3,5
It's a great phone, with great sound, great screen, a very sensitive touchscreen, great signal almost in any place. I think that the 70Mb of internal memory is an outdated spec, because my phone comes with 320Mb of free memory and a lot of content preinstalled like the OviMaps with the maps of my country, some videos and songs, apps and games. Maybe WiFi and be the perfect phone... anyway, I just love my 5320!!!
