Anonymous, 15 May 2010ok then in settings what is the use of internet settings which includes connections ; offline ... moreI dont know the case with 5230. But i bet you my reputation that my 5233 can work 100% offline without the need for a data connection. I have already transferred the map of India onto my phone using the ovi suite. So i can access the whole map of India offline without havin to download a single kb of data. And yes the data connection is only used to download map files and for syncing map data with your ovi account. Note that it is not mandatory for you to be logged in to access maps atleast in the case of 5233. In offline mode, the phone works without a data connection and uses the stored map files. Hope this clears things up...
lovely phone from nokia.very nice features in this price.its the master piece i already use 5800 and 5530 both are poor camera and both are hangssss too much but 5230 is mindblowing.buy it
kk, 15 May 2010wow! what a great phone.i never expected such a phone from nokia.the internet works at tremend... moreThe world has changed a lot since Jan 2010... or Nov 2009 when Nuron was launched. Check out Samsung's Monte... There's a WinMo 6.5.3 phone with free voice nav in English and Hindi from Garmin Asus, 3.5" WVGA screen in 19k.
20k will fetch you far better than what it would have in Jan. Nuron was good in Jan, not now... Do you know N97 mini with full QWERTY, 5 MP autofocus camera is now in 19k.
LG Arena is 12k. Read about it in the conclusion part of Monte's review. You will realize there, that Nuron is not even in competition with it. Apart from Arena, there are scores of WinMo and Android phones to choose from in the same price.
For Nuron, the charm of a Symbian smart phone with free voice navigation is still there but the drawbacks are a lot and alternatives are tempting.

S60v5 f0nes can install themes, games, apps, and other supp0rted stuffs outthere. Just be sure th0se stuffs that ur installing is c0mpatible. (For example, themes for 5230 sh0uld be .sis and n0t .thm)
Okay, for 3rd party apps? Ofc0urse u can install them. But s0me of 'em arent free just like adobe reader for example. But there are s0me that's free, but still u need to sign them so u can install it without any err0rs. U need to sign th0se 3rd party apps with ur IMEI number and etc.
N0w, about hacking? Its actually so helpful. U can install various supp0rted apps whether unsigned or n0t. There w0uldnt be any error msgs that u wil enc0unter, so it wil be hassle free. And aside fr0m that, u can cust0mize ur f0ne with it. U can change its f0nt, u can disable the camera's shutter sound, u can change b0otscreen, u can do other stuffs that an ordinary unhacked f0ne cant do.
Unfortunately, if there's an advantage, there is a disadvantage t0o. Bec0z ur f0ne is hacked and its hackable. Its pr0ne to viruses or malwares (if there's any). And u might erase s0me imp0rtant files that were hidden at first. Hacked f0n's hidden files are n0w exp0sed. So "do things with ur own risk" is str0ngly rec0mmended.
Hope this helps. For m0re info, try symbiantalk.net for querries and clarificati0ns on hacking. give ur f0ne a freed0m. Learn to enjoy. Ü

@blacky you cannot download all themes.very few will work.you can download games for s60 devices.widget applications doesnt work.beware of virus attacks
I have a question... I was planing to buy this phone, but I have to know something first... Can this mobile accept 3rd party apps? Can I install other themes and programs such as word or any document viewer, games, video players, internet browser and stuff like that? I read that this phone is hackable. Do i need to hack to install these things, because I don't want to do that :( my brother has a nokia symbian S60 and he can't install a simple theme, not to speak of any kind of program. What to do because I would really like to install a bunch of stuff XD sorry if this is a stupid question, but I'm not a mobile know-it-all :)
wow! what a great phone.i never expected such a phone from nokia.the internet works at tremendous speeds.there are numerous features in this.if you want to buy a better phone than this,you need to spend more than 20,000 rupees.ULTIMATE PHONE.JUST FEELING LUCKY TO POSSESS THIS.THANK YOU NOKIA

Buddy, 15 May 2010You don't have to pay for GPS if u have an unlimited data plan...although 5230 has A-GPS which... moreBuddy you are partly wrong there. By network based positioning it simply means access to a network tower and not exactly data connectivity. Even 5233 with map files loaded onto the device from the computer can work offline without the need for internet connectivity. For google maps though, both 5230 and 5233 have the same data usage for downloading maps and other relavent information. Even 5230 is not a stand alone gps device. It still requires access to a network tower for locking it's position. That is why it is called assisted gps or a-gps. Stand alone gps comes only in premium devices with powerful hardware. In short, 5233 is almost the same as 5230 in terms of daa usage and both can work offline without internet connectivity but never without access to a network provider. The only advantage i see with 5230 is real time positioning with better accuracy and additional info like voice navigation and speed calculation.
it does not play wmv video format, as it plays on the music of it while there is no display simultaneusly can anybody answer this
is there any way to get different color battery cover seperately from somewhere in delhi because they are not providing same in sales package here.
