Emir, 02 May 2010Did u guys ever heard about better earphones?!? Everyone is repeating same thing! Sound is low... moreI totally agree with Emir....
Ppl here complain about sound quality issues by using the default headset which is crap by the way..
Even a entry level earphone from sony or philips costing just above 300rs gives you way better audio quality and double the output. So I request each and every one of you to get better earphones and just give it a try. You'll be amazed at the clarity this phone delivers. there is no excuse for your complains as nokia has generously given us a 3.5mm jack to plug in what ever we want. Just wake your senses and try to get a bigger picture by investing in a good pair of earphones. And mind you this is one of the best music phones produced by nokia. It just so happens that all that potential is capped by the lowsy earphones provided by nokia. The better earphones you get the better will be the audio output and quality.
I say this because I get almost audiophile like music quality with my philips she9800 which is my preferred pair of earphones.
Shash, 02 May 2010My 5233 shows "Not Allowed" when I try and make a conference between two calls I hav... moreConference calling is not usually available on pay as you go. If you're on a contract then your network might need to activate the feature on your account
Nokia 5233 is a Smart phone at low budget. Samsung corby series and Monte can't even match its performance. Multimedia,Multitasking,Internet,16k Display in all aspects it is way better than Samsung phones. Speaker[Mono] is bit low in volume and the resistive display had no issues at all. It lacks attractive looks but scores high as a convergent device.
Its upto the buyer if he wants style or substance?
My 5233 shows "Not Allowed" when I try and make a conference between two calls I have made..?..Is this feature not available on this phone or am I doing sth wrong..?..Calling Party A and then Party B and then after B picks up go to options and select conference..Right..?

listen up ppl.
for those thinking of buying this phone, plz do.
its symbain based (u can install loads of wonderful applications n full touch screen games, etc)
the sound i admit is on the lower syd but buy any other earphone than nokia n u get almost double the volm. fr 7000bucks its a sweet deal.
cam quality is good in lighted aread, even video in lighted condtn is damn good. u also have assisted gps (i use google maps software on myn n nw whn i go places m not lost or cheated by taxis ;) )
battery backup entirely depends upon hw much u use what. it does not have free adobe reader or office bt u can either buy it or... ;)
fr those who say volm is low, use sofwares to boost volm bfr putting it in the phone.
i'd say go for it, u wont b disappointed
