I have been using this phone for 2 months already and i do not have any problem using it, so I can say that it is really a good phone . It has the same features with 5800 (except the camera, wlan, 3g), but despite the lack of the said features it is really worth the cash, especially to those people who dosen't have the cash to buy higher end smartphones. And to those people who are saying negative comments about this phone, just shut up!! If you want 3g, WI-FI and some others stuff then just buy 5800 or whatever phone that has dis kind of features as simply as that.
i have 5233. i have been experiencing time lag with messages. it take time to open messages. does anybody else experience the same ?

Better to buy 5230 as it is 3G enabled phone and have cost difference of only Rs. 500.Must check for 5230
STRICTLY SAY NOT WORTH TO PAY FOR 5233

Beat, 11 Jun 2010Hello mate , i was asking my ?s 2 get ur help in 5230 fourm and u helped me 2 buy a good phone... moreYeah you can go for HellOx 2.4 but it doesn't work with the newer firmware version. Nokia seem to have figured that out. Hakin using Hellox is quite safe but it doesn't always gurantee success. The other thing to do would be to flash your phone with another firmware version which is kind of risky, tedious and definitely not recommended for first timers.

Maybe your battery is defective or it is not authentic. Where did you buy your unit? Consult Nokia Care abt. your problem or go to Nokia site for support.
Waxx, 11 Jun 2010if you want high tech touchscreens you need to look at the 5800, n900, n97, or the x6n 900

How many people need and use the TV out functionality of the 5800? I mean DVD players with USB ports and can play avis, divxs, etc are a dime a dozen nowadays. The reason why a mobile phone is called that-mobile- is because you are not supposed to stick it to a non-mobile device because the use of both would defeat the purpose.
Personally, If I have the money for a higher end phone like the 5800, I'd rather spend it on a 5233 and an Ipod touch. the difference is just a little over thousand bucks.

Nokia is customer oriented and sensitive to the needs of its customers. The growing Nokia Care Centers in our country is a proof of their good service. I had few experiences visiting Nokia Care here in our place and their service was quite satisfactory.
