Hi guys,myself Victor. I wanted to whether it has "NIGHT MODE" Option in Camera. If it doesn't hv this then taking pictures and doing video recording at nite time would give a very very poor result. Plz give me a feedback
hey! I am a proud owner of nokia 5230. I have bought it around 3 months ago and stil its stil running smooth. This phones sensitivity of the screen is almost upto N 97..yes its much better than 5800..i have used that as wel also. This phone can open up to 6 applications at once without stucking. All i could find that time was 6,maybe it can open more.yes applictions for this phone is hard to find but you can visit www.mobile9.com or www.zedge.com for some applications.and also get the applications for 5800 and instal.answer continue in the setup where it says this software i not comptible with your phone.also check waptrick.com and wapkig.com from your phone.if your a gamer and wantx some games go to waptrack.com and select what you want.eg- ubisoft games,gameloft games.sometimes Gps uses gprs to download the map.you could manualy download your countries map and install it to your phone.you can get your countries map from nokia ovi maps. Or you can install google maps and get gps directions. Remember to upgrade your phone to get beter reaults.. If you have more questions write to me firstname.lastname@example.org.. I will try to reply..overall nokia 5230 is the best affordable phone..

Oh!one thing forgot 2 say!the next 5230 models wil b available wid 256mb inbuilt memory instead of 70mb nd the price wil b 9389 rupees.
Hey guys! i just mailed to nokia yesterday!today they replied me.they r sayin that 5230 will b available within some days.as this mobile is under production....So, in my opinion,dnt go for 5233.just wait for a few tym.it will be available .THANKS:-)
Never ever imagined NOKIA would release such a smart phone at such affordable price..!!!! 3G rocks!!!!
Here is my review of Nokia 5230 of after about a week of usage.
I bought the phone for Rs 8200/- at Savitri Market Noida along with scratch guard (Rs. 200/-) and 4 Gb SanDisk SDHC card (Rs 500/-). It came with a plectrum and stylus both.
So far I am pretty happy with the phone as it does quite well what I require most i.e. making and receiving calls.
Though I occasionally used it for listening to radio and music as well. I am not an audiophile so I found the sound quality ok. I have tried the GPS function with voice guidance and it really 'rocked'. I got rather exited and today morning I tried while sitting in a manually driven rickshaw in Noida. Though the phone had to recalculate the route every now as the rickshaw puller used his one navigation system :-) . I have also discovered that a rickshaw travels at fairy respectable speed of 15 km/h. (Did you know that ?)
Here are the pro and cons according to me.
1. Fairly good sized screen.
2. Pretty ok touch screen response.
3. Quite cool GPS function.
4. Easy to type messages with QWERTY keyboard in landscape orientation.
5. Good battery life and fast charging.
1. Difficult to read display in daylight (for e.g. walking on road) but not in shade (for e.g. in car)
2. Slightly low speaker volume so I have to keep the volume at maximum.
3. Difficult to find free applications for Symbian S60v5 for e.g. pdf/ebook reader (I might be wrong about this. I love to know if there any available).
And finally thanks to all the nice folks on this forum who answered my questions as well as others for reviewing it.
