If I'm not wrong they invested close to 10 billion USD in securing rights. That's huge. That's one of the main reason why i didn't go for 5230. Besides i already got a decent unlimited broadband at home and usually break the 100GB/month barrier.

The network providers have already invested a fortune on for securing spectrum. So naturally the tariff's will be based on data usage or unlimited data plans will be too expensive for the ordinary users. It may be good for casual browsing and the occassional video calls. Other than that I don't think any provider will be daring enough to come up with an unlimited plan especially with those speeds on offer. Even a 10GB cap is a no go for me as with such speeds on offer, that's like 2 or three days of usage for me.
Gues EDGE is still the cheapest and most reliable means of connecting to the internet for hardcore downloaders like me.

For me swype didn't work out too well so i was back to my good old qwerty which I think is the fastest input option for me. I could type atleast three times faster than I could swype. The problem with swype is that I cannot use prediction to type my regional language in english when texting. The default keyboard has no such problem and the keys are spaced enough not to get in in my way.

It's cheaper unlimited plans that matter. 3G is useless with a limited data plan. And for that to happen we need tough competition between private players. Lets see how things play out during the next 6 months, anyways I don't expect a decent unlimited plan before 2012(I hope I'm wrong).

Few months ago I bought this set(5months actually).Was v happy with s60v5 os and large touch screen.But I was disappointed as I couldn't install any third party appz to utilize it's power.so i did search for solutions over the net and one day i got myself to a website "n5233.tk".I found everything there abt this phone and finally flashed my phone with a cfw.The guy there "Arun",helped me a lot.Im grateful to him.Now though i don't get enuf time to go through my phone,i often remember about it and I wish that guy a very good life.
Most people bought 5233 four or six months before .Then it was a bit costlier than today. Nowadays the prices have came down that most of the people can now afford a 5230. As 3g is started to come with most of the networks ,it is now good to buy a 5230 than 5233. But it is worth mention that video call is not possible with 5230.But i think it is good to wait for sometime before changing your phone to have a look at the 3g data plans .I think it will take an year or two to become the 3g data plans so cheap.Till then,it is good idea for people like me to stick to their 5233. Am i right ?

Or maybe they get more profit out of selling 5233s. Whatever may be the case, i can guarantee you that they have almost no knowledge about the latest firmwares. They just comment based on what they hear from their customers. You should give more priority to what users say about a particular device. Forums like this exists solely for that purpose.

haayy, 13 Nov 2010Seriously guys..
For all you people planning to get this phone, buy Nokia 5230 instead...
... moreHi there. Its the obvious truth that nokia 5230 is better than this phone. But there is no point in doing any debate to decide which phone is better because each of these phone is meant for different end users. Its not that nokia made 5233 by mistake or maybe they ran out of 3g and gps electronic parts, lol. But if both these phones were manufactured by different companies and were priced exactly the same then 5230 is an obvious winner. People who are buying or are about to buy 5233 instead of a 5230 are not being cheated or something by nokia cause they are getting to pay far less money. Although its true that your comment hold ground for people who go on a blind buying spree. Looking at the numbering, anyone can be fooled. Your comment will also be true for people who has the necessary money to get hold of a 5230 but are planning to get a 5233 as they don't know that 5230 actually exists.
And another thing, don't you ever think that you being a 5230 user don't have the right to ask questions here. We are always ready to help no matter what mobile you have (although it should be symbian). So, feel free to ask anything if you encounter any problems in your 5230. Anyways, happy exploring with your device. See ya.....
