I cant use this phone outdoor. Display is totally useless in sunlight or in outdoors. Is this phone is for Bats or for who leave in darkness like ghosts or insane people? Nokia please improve your display for outdoor use. Display is very important for touch phones because there are no buttons. I cant even read or write message when i am outdoor or see who is calling. This are basics things for which mobile are used. Even full brightness does not work but it will damage our eyes indoors and eats battery very fast. I have seen samsung touch phones display ,they are useable in sunlight in some angles and way better than nokia.please nokia do something .... Most of time i will be outside ...i am planning to change my mobile with 6303i which has very good display but i will miss multitasking , good browser and big display of 5233. But 6303i basically acts as phone which is very important.....

Just goto this site www.n5233.tk
Everything you need and all the instructions are given very clearly with pics to make sure you don't goof up. Download all the necessary files first and just follow the give instructions. You'll have you phone modded in no time with the latest V21 modded FW.
Yes this is a h a c k e d firmware so you can enjoy a lot of benefits.
The original fw consists of 8 seperate files which can be downloaded from the site. The modded fw consists of three of the files out of the eight original which can be downloaded seperately. All we do is replace the three original files with the modded ones and use a flashing tool to flash the new fw to the phone. The original files come in very handy as it can be used later to revert back to the default factory fw.
Hope everything's clear mate...

But with moderate usage, this can get you through two days... For touch screen smartphones, it is a necessity to charge it daily though it might give you 2 days of usage.

Nvn, 22 Jul 2010I purchas 5233. After 3 hr it becom waste. Its ph memry was end.Dude... to begin with 5233 is smartphone so you need to have a basic knowledge of what you can safely do and how to best manage the phone resources. It' just like maintaining a PC in good working condition. Do not install any kind of softwares in the phone memory. And also kill all unused apps to save memory and battery.
