Well come back to forum, we miss u a lot for your comments.
Recentely i had gone through a discussion topics posted on Nokia site regarding comparison of OVI MAPs and Google Maps.
I am in little bit confused whether to go with Google Maps ( In India)or not? Can you put some light on it ?

Hey Dude, been away from the online world for sometime now, been busy wid ma real life stuff but then you put ma name up there requesting a reply so I thought I better do.
So..... regarding your phone getting stuck at Nokia Logo problem. Seriously believe me there is nothing wrong with your Phone as in (Hardware). This Problem is rather infamously known as 40-Applications Error, which means that if you have installed more than 40 applications your nokia will start showing such signs. On the other hand its also about incompatible startup applications .... say for example you installed some app & it needs to auto start when the phone starts but then due to some incompatibility the Symbian OS wont load the app & will get stuck at the nokia logo startup. Mostly this issue has to do with the Symbian 9.4 OS .... some glitches there!!!! So dont worry.
Personally even I faced the problem when I crossed 90+ Applications at one time. So the best solution would be to try n recall the last application that you installed & then uninstall it. Also try n uninstall all those unwanted themes, apps n games that u installed just like that. Remember music, video & Image files dont cause this problem. I am sure it will fix your Problem.
PS: In some cases it might happen if the Phones Memory gets too low & doesnt even have enough memory for the basic phone operations. But in that case removing the memory card wont help in any way n then the only solution will be a Factory Reset.
@SR Hey Pal, Whats up?? Did you get your new 5230??
Chalo then :) Its 3:40 am - Gotta Sleep
Will meet everyone around this forum after a month or so.
Amazing phone for the price and features. I bought this phone almost 3 months ago for 185 euros!! It has not disappointed me. It is loaded with features and 3g works very well. Its attractive too but i wish the design was a bit more creative. It resembles the 5800 too much. I have owned Nokia phones all my life (with the exception of 1 Motorola which i hated after 3 months lol)and so i am a huge fan. navigation and ease of use were very easy for me. Although at times i wish the menu was a bit more simple. You have to into several sub menu to find things sometimes. Otherwise i love this phone and i will keep it for a long time. I high recommend this phone.
This is really ausom.I bought it two months before and it is giving a good responce.Touchscreen gives a sensitive reply and battery is good enough for seven to eight talktime hours and for music.And I recommend all of to buy one.

Even i noticed that the phone gets stuck at the nokia logo and i have to remove the silicon case then remove the battery which is a HUGE pain in the arse for me
Can anyone tell me why this happens it has happened twice to me
the first time it didnt know what to do so i had to hard reset the phone and the second time i just removed the memory card while restarting the phone and then hot swapped it after which it worked fine.
I again tried to see if the restart works fine and it did work fine.
Can anyone tell me whats the problem and why does it happen most often???
And after that problem i mean removing the battery..and restarting... it starts working fine
