This phone lacks the GPS hardware and depends on Network based positioning. So the accuracy of your position is subject to the proximity of the cell towers within the phone's range. So the closer the cell tower, the tighter the range of your location.
But do note that only some network towers and providers share the cell id position data with the device. A typical eg is that Airtel in my city supports location based positioning while my Reliance GSm sim does not. That means even if I have GPRS activated on my Reliance SIM it won't be able to display my current location. But everything else works just fine like map browsing and other maps services.
I've also noticed that Google maps has a better accuracy of pin pointing location than Nokia maps. Also Nokia maps takes a bit more time to update location than Gmaps. It might be because much of the computation is done on the phone itself instead of the cloud.

Philips SHE9700, cost < 25 USD

cedric, 29 Oct 2010how?what are the things or steps to dowith your phone browser go to m.google.com.Then click on 'more' in that page.You will get a list of google mobile services.From that select maps.You now get a link to download google maps mobile app. Download it to your phone and enjoy. It can work with or without gps. As 5233 lacks gps chip ,you will get your approximate location based on your mobile tower.

hi, guys,in my 5233 phone there is a delay in opening the Install .apps folder(about 5 seconds).what is the probable reason ? In contrast the phone is oversensitive to touches when the application SPB shell is used.How to reduce it? How can i lock a new folder as a whole wih a password so that the files in it should not appear in mediaplayer ? My phone memory decreases slowly without any reason.As per the information got from this forum,i am daily deleting cache memory(xplore app).But not getting a complete solution . Waiting for the masters...........
