I bought this last month from India and using for Internet connection with Airtel/Aircel which is running very great. This is my 1st Nokia since my favorite SE is costlier with similar features (almost double the cost).
Good: Network connectivity, 2MPcamera, sound, touch screen, lock, handwriting recognition (2 good), video quality far better
Bad: User interface is not so easy, need more practice.
In short - its worth buying for 3.2 screen used for internet.
Most of the Nokia use same processor. Hence no need to go for costlier phone if no features like camera and speakers are required.
i just have this phone for 5 months.
now i facing dead pixels on lcd.
speaker playing music having cracking noise and lock unlock scroll keep on jamming.
u decide 2 buy it or nt

in my opinion this phone has got all the good features to impress you. Only con is that the speaker is not loud enough,though nokia has releasd a music player update for this phone. Still the loudness is an issue.
[deleted post]wave525 is good with wifi and gps(no 3g) but 5230 has got a very powerfull os(symbian) and you will get free assisted gps for life with this phone.

Anonymous, 25 Dec 2010do you think 3G can give me free internet browsing?nope ! 3g is a type of internet connection. It is not free,rather it will cost you much more than normal gprs connection.
