Naveet, 18 Oct 2010I am not able to make video call... can anyone help me? Video Call is supported or not...U hav 2 use headphone
what is better C5 or 5230? what r the differences? please tell me someone! i cannot decide which one to buy... thanks in advance
I saw many posts commenting that the sound quality is very bad.
Im afraid. Ive planned to buy this phone in India where i live.
Is that so.
I wanna listen to music.
Is it of very low quality?
Help me guys.
The sound output from the head phone is pathetic. Even at the max volume set it sucks. In addition when you listen to rock or jazz music there is a disturbance in the headset. A Krrrrr sound. The screwed up sound affects the video experience aswell, naturally. Why a touch phone if just for pics? For 7.5k its not worth. Has a series of problem which drives you crazy on your daily use, which infact makes the handset not so useful as one would expect it to be. Please do not buy this phone. Never a nokia 5230. Nokia screwed on this product.
You got a Message from Unknown number, U Opend it and found that messages says that he is your freind with name RAJ. You immediately saved that number in your Contacts.
Still the Message Header which there is Number has to show your friend Name, it doesnt show. It still Shows the Number only.
You got 2nd Message from that same Freind, now in your Inobx you can see the Name Now.
So It Doesnt show in Inbox your freinds Name for your Older SMS what he sent after you save his Number.
I have Bought on Oct 14th, 2010 my Birthday, Nokia 3G 5230 from PCH Hyderabad Store for Rs 7428. It has 2 GB External Micro SD Card given. As the Box behind it appears Red Panel Phone. But there are two Colours only Avaiable. One is White & One is Black Panel. I have taken Black.
Everything is good and cool.. I want to tell you about the Lagging Factors, Minus of this Mobile.
In Some of Nokia Models when you want to Delete SMS, there is MARK option, here in 5230 when you open inbox,
1st Step = you wil see Options in bottom left - Click it,
2nd Step = when you go to options Scroll Down for Mark/unmark
3rd Step = Click that again in that "Mark, Mark read, Mark all"
4th Step = you have to select then "MARK".
So TOTAL 4 Steps.
If u select Mark for that sms, the second sms also you have to do the Same Procedure, go to options and Mark it,.. so for each sms you have to go to Options, goto Mark/unmark, then click Mark...
Its better you delete each message separately, as in Options you wil get Delete option also while you go on Scrolling for to check for Marking.
So its not like that one message you mark it, when you scroll to next message in INBOX, Instead of Below Options, "Mark" button was there for Major NOKIA models, where you can easily go on marking Each fastly what ever you want.
2) Any contact already stored in your phone book, When you want to see the recent calls..if you want to tell the number to your freinds that some person has called you, you cannot see the Number of that recent caller, you can only see the Name, you cant see "View" of that caller Number. Major Nokia Phones have this option. For this you have to go to contacts and search the name.
Here in example Missed calls Example "ABHI" is appearing. Bottom left you have options, Right you have "BACK". So even you go to "Options" you can find options like "call, create message, open contacts, save to contacts, use number, delete.. etc" I am using Use Number -> where it have 2 more , EDIT, COPY. I am clicking Edit where i can see number.
Still I am Looking each options will get back to you.. about the NEGATIVE FACTS.

mujeev, 18 Oct 2010maybe Nokia is pushing for the 5235 model in India since they are generally the same.

But its still dere on the nokia India website. Moreover the back panel colors were updated on the specifications page only a week ago.
Dont kno......whether look for this phone at other dealers or buy some other phone. As the phone will be becoming past soon. :(

This is the best phone you can get for 8K price range with this much features in it. Nokia still retaining its nativity in a full touch tablet phone – simply awesome. The GPS device in it is so accurate – Good work. Browsing is seamless – loads all pages quickly. Even graphic/flash contents.
