Sorry for the late reply. Some guys were pulling our legs so for those hear this, no one can do flashing without having guidence from some place or other. I too had to follow guides to do the flashing but that doesn't meant that i didn't know what i was doing. Some people here just come and ask about flashing and after getting the steps, flash their phones. If lucky, the flashing might be successful but if something happens during the procedure and the guide had nothing written about it then the person is lost. Neither can he cancel the process resulting in dead phones nor can he continue as he has no knowledge about how things work. Before i did my first flashing, i followed each and every guide available on the popular forums on web, just to make sure i didn't miss a thing. And after one month or so i finally had the guts to flash. This was when i had my nokia 5130 about a year ago. And there was one person who personally voluntered and guided me further by giving me instructions through gmail. Its UTK here. And i am still grateful for his help. So my point is, first you guys who want to flash get the knowledge from web then we will provide the minor details or instructions that will help solve your confusions. Rahul here already said that he wanted to follow some guides on the web first and then think about flashing. This is a better idea. As he will know much more than what he would have if we gave a short guide on flashing. Trying to figure out things on ones own gives you the opportunity to discover new things. And these new informations give you a unique knowledge about that subject hence giving you unique ways of flashing (in this case).And please don't call us experts. We are just newbies, like you all, who are sharing our discoveries with you guys. Still we take every effort to provide perfect suggestions. So, when rahul here says that he is ready for flashing, we will help him get through the process, hence giving him the confidence to continue as we will be backing him up from here.
Rahul, 11 Nov 2010Hi guys ,bought a 5233 yesterday. Good phone indeed. I want to flash it but not right now. Wa... morewhy do you want to hack your phone? if nokia have made the best hardware for this phone then the software must be the best. why you people want to take such a risk that can harm your phone & its warranty? if damaging the phone is your hobby then buy 20 cheap china phones instead. and if money is no matter for you then go for a mobile-repairing course & then mess with such things. those custom firmwares are nothing but modified copy of the original. those guys who discuss here about flashing are proper experts & have proper knowledge. rest of the people are happy with the original. BE ORIGINAL,BE SAFE. BE EXPERT,DO FLASHING.

The three key method is used as a last resort when the phone refuses to boot up normally.

Anonymous, 12 Nov 2010i dont have 5233,bt in few dayz i will buy it,
pls tell me its good 4 me or not 2 buy it.
Or... more5233--6400INR,no 3g,no wi-fi,no gps.
5530--9500INR,no 3g,has wi-fi.
5230--7500INR,has 3g,no video call.
all the other features are SAME. its upon you to decide according to your need. but there are some software related issues with 5230. camera quality is best in 5233. music quality is best in 5530. production of 5800 has stopped. i would suggest you to buy 5233,with sony mdr-e818lp headphones & sandisk 4gb. it will cost you total 6400+390+400=7190INR & you will get the BEST 2G TOUCHSCREEN SMARTPHONE IN INDIA.

nokia 5233, 12 Nov 2010which is better of all sou said ? the faster internet browser?best-- opera mobile 10--fastest,flash animation,best for multi-tab browsing & multiple download,but 5mb in size
better-- mini symbian--fast,less than 1mb but no flash animation,slow download,not so good for multi-tab browsing & multiple downloading
avoid-- mini jar
verdict-- if you want speed & have space in memory card go for opera mobile10.
but if you can compromise speed & want to save space go for mini symbian 5 beta.
philippines., 11 Nov 2010how to have a security card when you unlock this phone?please answer my query.thanksIn your phone,open settings >phone management >security >phone and sim card . There select' phone auto lock period '. Sett it to' user defined '.Now you will see 'lock after minutes '. Enter the time in minutes after which you want to lock your phone. The phone will now ask for the lock code. The default code is 12345. Now its done. The phone will automatically lock after the time you selected.
If you want to change the lock code,select'lock code' in the above page.The default code is 12345.Enter it and then enter the new lock code
.Enter the new lock code once more to verify it.
Hope it helped.
