@ Mr. Khan
Nokia 5230 hands down is the best phone at that price have called nokia sevice centre it has no software issues only thing the marketing strategy is flop and shop keepers are only faking Nokia 5233 no 3G is the same and advance than Nokia 5230
In fact 6 of us went to buy Nokia 5230 but its not availaible so we dint buy Nokia 5233 will never go for this one
Nokia should take note of this in fact Nokia 5230 was selling like hot cake in Indian market and has high demand
I stay in Malad(W) have searched for Nokia 5230 in Goregaon Kandivali even called many shops across mumbai many of them were saying its discontinued and 5233 is better than it(Bullshit)cant understand why Nokia is not marketing it in India when it available outside India
I am not going to buy Nokia 5233 as it has no 3G and GPS
also contacted NOkia Email:email@example.com
they are not replying
Any clue where its available in Mumbai and price with bill waranty
SHANKAR, 16 Feb 2010guys, iam from chennai. on 14-02-2010 (v-day), myself and my spouse have searched nearly 14 ... moreI am also from Chennai. I hav also searched in all the mobile shops, they say that Nokia 5230 has been stopped since it was a flop model. I don't know how true this is.
Samsung mobile cant run any 3rd party softwares ..
nokia provide Symbian platform which is very user friendly n run almost all.
N 1 mor this phone is in the range of 8000 Rs.........so compare it with star n corby not jet...
My review is for those guys who r sayin dat samsung phones r better than nokia............
compare both brands in battery, display resolution, GPRS speed then u'll know dat which brand is better Nokia or Samsung....
Guys dont read n send fake comments
this phone is superb Go for it
East or west Nokia is best
this phone is not a very good phone,
camera is very poor, slow processor, low quality screen, no 3g, no wifi.. the touch is not that sensitive..
for me the samsung jet is the best!
better check it before buying other phones..
AMOLED SCREEN with 800mhz processor, 5mp camera with dual led flash, 3g and wifi available.. this is the phone that have everything you need... so many good features..!!
I am using 5230 for last one week.. the experience is wonderful n its awesome value for money.. the features r also good. i bought at a price band of INR8100/-.its more user friendly.. thanks nokia,.
Nokia really s*cks now a days. Prove it by released this phone in the market.
I've just bought 5230 one day ago,
but sometimes my 5230 loading without any reason,
and that time I did not doing anything at my phone,
the loading message was "sending text message".
whats wrong with my phone?
can someone help me?
guys, iam from chennai.
on 14-02-2010 (v-day), myself and my spouse have searched nearly 14 shops within a radius of 5 kms for nokia 5230. the shops include poorvika, wavetel, npd, the mobile store, universal and sri-vasavi. nokia 5230 is not available (repeat) not available.
so i settled for nokia 5233.
i purchased it for 7299. the shop owner was kind enough to give (gift) me a 4 gb sd card for rs. 199 (instead of the travel bag).
my set includes a stylus which fits into the back compartment.
the phone is wonderful. the touch screen is very responsive. i have downloaded themes from net and the result is amazing. display in very rich.
sound quality through earphones is good
sound output through speakers is ok ( almost like 5310 or se k 790 i)
i have been using the phone for 48 hours now. shall update with more details.
people who are not much interested in 3g ( you bet it will take another 2 years for it to roll out in india) can take this phone.
100% value for money
U can update your frimware using OTA as i did for this you need active gprs or 3g and. If you want to update your 5230 go to application and select sw update an you will be promted to install new update
Has anyone tried to update firmware of 5230 using USB connection to PC suite ? I have read few post on other forums that once USB connection is lost during upgrade the phone switches off leaving the upgrade unfinished. Was this your experience ?
If yes how did upgrade the firmware.. over the air ?
My c memory is empty but in installed application list i have seen ovi map and nokia map. Should i remove one? i have installed python runtime can i remove it and in the list adobe flash lite 3.1 is installed to c memory and forgot to tell you this change happened after i updated my frimware from v11 to v12
