nokia 5233 user, 19 Aug 2010SidewindeR, you are actually a Nokia employee set for this forum. You will never ever tell the... moreHey mate i never said this phone is perfect. Infact no phone available today is perfect in every respect. But the thing you have to take into consideration is the fact that Nokia is giving us a true smartphone with almost all the features of a high end phone at the price of a feature phone. So you should be willing to make some compromises and sacrifices. i can confidently say that there is no other phone in this price range that offers so much features as the 5233. Infact I challenge you. If you can suggest me a better phone in this price range with all the features of 5233, then I'll gladly stop commenting in this board. If you cannot, what will you be willing to do?

For some strange reason though the EP-630 is really good, I somehow like the sound signature of the SHE9550. I think the philips sounds a bit more natural and balanced to my ears. I'd love to hear your opinions as well.
Amalinda Gamage, 19 Aug 2010Thank you a lot for the feed back sidewinder.
1. Also can you let me know whats the normal ... moreWell Nokia 5233 supports class 32 EDGE so the maximum attainable download speed using class 32 EDGE is 296kbps or roughly 37kBps. Using Airtel EDGE in India I get around 25-30kBps download speeds during less traffic hours. My previous LG phone which is a class 12 EDGE phone could only manage to get 15-20kBps in comparison. So the EDGE speed is appreciably good. This kind of speed allows me to stream live tv programs though at normal quality and I've also managed to do voice chat using fring though there was some sort of stuttering and loss of audio here and there but it is possible to do so.
And yes EDGE is the fastest connection you can get with 5233. If budget is not a constraint, I advice you to get 5230 which has HSDPA @ 3.6mbps. SO this will very well suit your needs or you can get the latest C6 or 5800. Both have 3G and wifi and also has a front facing cam which allows you to do video chat as well. In addition, they allso have wifi so connectivity is fully covered in the case of the latter two.

Regarding certificate prob, try doing the following, though i havent actually tried it. Change the date of phone to some past value and then try install the s/w. when u last attempted to install could u see the details of certificate in the initial installation screen? the certificate has some validity from and to date. Set phone date to somewhere in between. try this.

hack, 19 Aug 2010how did u hack this phone, pls tell.Im not a hacker, but a normal user.
For normal user the earphone provided ny nokia in 5233 retail package is more than enough. There is no noise and there is clarity.
Speakerfone is loud enough if you want to listen in the silent enviroment of your house. If you want to listen in train or noisy places i bet you wont use speakerphone but earphone in any case.
Web browser is very good. Better than most other nokia phones. Good phone for web browsing using edge connection.
Touch sensitivity is very good after recent firmware update over the air.
Durable. Its fallen many times but still working.
No serious bugs.
Runs s60v5 apps. Available throughout the internet.
Specially camera is too good for 2mp.

Persistently sticking to his/her thought that are arguably wrong. I my self uses affordable earphone such as Philips SHE9550/9551 and creative EP630 and their good and it is my choice to use that and not the crappy earphone included in the package.
