i bought this phone i.e nokia 5230 last week, the phone is disgusting as
1. The touch screen without navigation key makes it very hard for earlier n series users like me
2.very slow egprs(edge) on all networks in india, samsung i550 gives data download speed of 25kBps apporimately at all times where as nokia 5230 gives only 9kBps apporimately all times
3.camera may be 2MP but is very poor imager
4.last but not the least, this phone has very poor loud speaker quality compareable to other nokia s60v5 sets but the sound in headphone is great.
My advice for Indians who are thinking of buying Nokia 5230..........dont waste 8000 bucks for this worthless phone instead beg/borrow/steal/earn 5000 bucks more and buy nokia 5800 for 13000 bucks which is a great phone which i m going to buy right now thank you for reading so patiently

But really want to know whether I would get the free extra back cover if I buy it through a friend from UK. I've kind of already ordered it. Just checking whether I'll have to buy it seperately in different colour.
Anybody who bought the 5230 from UK pls reply..

1. I lost the email notification bar on the home screen in 5 days
2.lower the brightness and see how it restarts
Value for money challenge....
It's been about a month since i've purchased my Nokia 5233. I thought of going for the 5230 but had to be content with this as it's no where to be found im my home city. Another reason being paying 8.5k for 3G and GPS seemed a bit moot as neither is a big deal for me.
All in all, the best phone I've ever owned. Touch screen is super responsive, phone is zippy compared to its java siblings...
Camera is surprisingly good for a 2mp fixed focus camera.
Music quality is unbeatable and the best I've heard so far (my advice is to pay a bit extra n get the philips she9700 premium earphones).
Themes are superb and the customisation possibilities are endless. It looks very good on the 16M clour display.
And then there is the world of apps that you can play with. Symbian apps are 100 times better than java apps.
All in all, very satisfied with the phone.
Suddenly I realize that no other phone in this price range comes even close to the 5233 in terms of functionality and expandability. The same goes for 5230. I am so confident that I challenge anyone who can come up with a better phone in this price range with all the above mentioned features.
I bet you'll have a hard time coming up with one.
