my opinion, overall ok... but the speaker is a bit low. U can't do the video call as it's only got 1 camera. Camera is quite good. The video camera is also not bad.

I tried as you suggested, I selected starting point as my home and destination is Hotel pratap plaza (around 600 meters, which is availabe in data base)
I tried in offline mode in my II floor open space, I got the GPS Signal very good about 6 to 7 points and I found blue flag in origin point and dotted flag in destination point
but still it shows me "calculating the route"and i tried it for half an hour.
I got the doubt whether I should move toward the direction.

nokia 5230 is a superb full futured phone except wi-fi.
and it's very cheaper with these futures.
can i change it's casing besides the battery-cover?
so that i can choose when to use black or white (full housing)?? many thanks..
I want to buy this phone.
Can any one provide me the address of retailer in mumbai where this phone is available?
I tried my best but most of retailers including Nokia priority told me that nokia has discontinued the production of this mobile. So it's N/A.
What's the truth?
Jeniverre, 23 Feb 2010Ive been using this 5230 for m0re than 2 weeks n0w, and im on the net for several hourz. So fa... moreRed and Back for me then. Silicone case with screen protector. I might be rough, but I'm not stupid (well that's a lie actually:)
Ive been using this 5230 for m0re than 2 weeks n0w, and im on the net for several hourz. So far i dnt hav any issues with its web br0wser. It may be slow at firzt time loading the c0ntent, but after that its faster so its ok with me. But m0st of the time i am using operamini5.0 that is a l0t m0re faster.
I have mine with white and dark pink back cover. I think white color is m0re decent. if ur a male, u can ch0ose white and red or white and silver. If ur a r0ugh guy, ch0ose black and red. Ü
I rec0mmend this ph0ne to people who l0ves socializing in ind0orz, or just in office and malls. Sp0rty people sh0uld avoid this because u might scratch and br0ke this delicate baby hehe.
5230's video cam is awes0me for party occassi0ns and etc. Especially in daylight. When ur inside s0mewhere, and the place isnt that bright, then use night m0de and u wil see that this ph0ne has really a talent.
Music is great thr0ugh 3rd party headph0nes. And about its loudspeaker, its n0t sterio but its alm0st like it. U w0uldnt kn0w at first until ul read its specs only "m0no".
Overall ratings? 10/10 for performance, 9/10 for its design, and 9/10 for its features.
tharun, 23 Feb 2010any software problemsand any defects in this mobileYes the Nokia web browser is slow and full of bugs. The rest of the phone such as the audio quality texting GPS sat nav, are all great. The camera had a quality lens the video is full vga at 30fps. The handwriting recognition software also works very well.

This is my first smart phone after 2 S40 phones (5200 and 6233) and i can say that this is at par in performance(if not better) with any other S40 phones or smartphones. UI is fluid, smooth and kinetic scrolling does makes a big difference. I was proud of all my previous phones, and i am glad to say that Nokia 5230 is in the same league as well !
it isn't available now in bangalore atleast . checked with many stores. all of them are pushing 5233 . this is bad ....
I want to know that wats about its sound & camera quality.......is its 2MP camera is better then 5130XM.........and its sound clearity & quality.compare to XP phones........please tell me.........anybody.....
Hi to all 5230/5233 users as well as readers. I just want to share my view on these models.
Both the models are better performers. But the thing is, NOKIA pulling back/holding the 5230.I have read most of the posts in this section for the past 3 weeks and concluded to buy 5230, bcoz of GPS & 3G were my preferences. But I found hardly few 5230's available and are of gr8 demand. Finally got it for 8000INR+4GB (450/-) and a Sony E11LP earphones (490/-) for better music.
I guess NOKIA had made a cool move in keeping 5230 on HOLD (i guess).Because at a price tag of 8000INR, with GPS & 3G 5230 is a DEAL. Which may effect the sales of 5800Ex Music & 5530Ex Music. If iam not wrong, max Indian market is targeted on the hand sets within a 10K price tag. So 5230 is a clean swipe in that price range. So in order to avoid this sales deflection, 5233 is been introduced as a substitute for 5230 without 3G and GPS. So people who want either 3G/GPS will switch to other higher end models.
In my view 5230 would be a good competitor with other brands Touch Screen handsets with in same price tag and could be a competer in NOKIA itself.
So people Hurry up and get 5230 ASAP. Or hope NOKIA Re-release 5230 later (iam not sure Nokia would do this).A carry pouch and extra stylus would be a added benefit if it comes along with the sale pack.
Stock ear phones are ideal for making calls and to listen radio, up to some extent. But for music lovers, better opt for other head/earphones like Philips/Sony/Creative……etc.
is nokia 5230 back in india after the supply stopped?...........
though i won't be buying it till april ... still i'd like to know .... and did d price change or not?
