Hello. I just wanted everyones opinion on this.
I have used a nokia 3250 for over a year, and i loved it to bits. i recently broke it and am thinking about buying another 3250 to replace it.
I am also thinking about a nokia 5700 but around here where I live in the states, a nokia 3250 costs $200 USD and the 5700 costs $400 USD.
which should I buy? I use it primarily for text messaging, over 200 per day and I also use it for an mp3 player and listen to it for about 2 or 3 hours out of my day.
Which should i choose?

hi there find what ur looking for here ...
see the memory functions section it says " Hot swappable microSD memory card slot for up to 4 GB of expanded memory " ... i hope that will help u ... good luck and tc ... need more help post here ...
Hey can somebody tell me where on the nokia site is it given that 5700 supports 4GB memory card. I am about to buy one and I wanna see for myself before I get the card. Thanks people.
I got my 5700 in less than a week yet and im so happy with. It's so fast! Sound and music is very good as well as the picture quality. The price is just enough for what you pay. I like it better than the N series particularly the n70 and n73 units. Its not so bulky and not so thin. The only problem i have is organizing the Gallery. I love taking pictures of myself and I usually group them thru folder but with this phone, I can not create a folder within a folder and once you placed it in a folder you can not transfer it anymore. Can anybody help me solve this problem?
Hi Friends, this is to Justin too.
Last week I bought Nokia N73 Music Edition with 2 GB card. This phone I bought after using Nokia N70.
When I got N73 ME in my hand, first thing I omplained to the dealer was the built quality. N70 had solid built, but N73 was like a toy.
When I pressed the keys the back cover on the camera optics shaked the hell out of the unit. So poor construction on USD 400 phone.
Shame on Nokia.
Then I read some reviews about Nokia 5700. High speed processor, 3G, New software etc etc, today I sold my Nokia N73 ME at loss of USD 40 and purchased Nokia 5700.
I made a right choice. Yes the sound is not deafining as Nokia N73 ME. Agreed, but apart from Camera ( which was not so mind blowing on N73 either )this phones wins 9 out of 10. i would rate Nokia N73 ME at 6 out of 10. It cost about USD 290 in Indonesia. But after a loss of USD 40 on N73 I still think I Saved USD 70. I am really happy for making this decission. Thanks to all friends who presented their thoughts about Nokia N73 and compared with Nokia 5700.
Now this is to you Justin, you asked howcome Nokia is selling at low price compared to Nokia N73 ME. The answer is as the time pass by technology gets smarter and price comes down. This can be due to various reasons like supply source ( China ), competition with other brands etc. Nokia has created an image of N series to be high end products and you pay high price to own a N Series product. Thats why, though Nokia N73 is already an old model, due to the image it carries and still people purchase this product not knowing a non N Series product like Nokia 5700 is far far better they pay to purchase this high price product. Nokia is not a fool to bring down price below Nokia 5700 to spoil the reputation N Series carry.
So got my point. Cheer up. Buy Nokia 5700 and be happy. Bye friends.
Gud day! This is Justin again!
Thank you for your reply last time! But I'm still curious about this mobile & I want to buy it! However I have many questions to ask about this phone! Although you have this unit, and also your brother has N73me, you can compare it better! Coz I have N73me too! And when I'm listening to mp3 at night with its stereo speakers not on the headset, volume 3-4 is enough for me!and at daytime I used 5-6 volume! Meaning its so loud! And it only depends on the mp3 file you've downloaded if its clear or not! But in your experience with this mobile, does this phone loud as N73me in those volumes I've said??! Eventhough its already set on what Farthans' equalizer settings to make it loud??!! And how about the loudness on the headset,is it good too??! And what is the truth of?Because I've read on nokia-review that this is with 3.5mm jack, but you've said that it is 2.5!What is the truth?? And how many messages does it contains on the INBOX? And is its reception on fm radio, and communication signal is good too??!!! Please help me!!! & Please don't tell only the positives of this phone ok!!! Coz why is this mobile sell in low prices now, if this has a very good features with chips and all that???!!! Please reply soon!!!Tnx!!! Coz I want to buy this phone!!! PLEASE!!! Thanks again in Advance!!! And for those who knows about this phone can help me too! Tnx also!!!
oh,sorry,i haven't used it.i just find out when i go to official nokia 5700 website..they says it can support 4GB..now i'm using 2GB an it enought for me,and the perfomance is really fast and great.
the sound quality is different from N73,i has compare with my little brother N73Me,5700 has quality and clear than n73me,but the only different is the loudness of the sound.althought n73me is more louder than 5700 at higher vol,the sound it produce is not clearly and has a lot of noises..i just can tell you,5700 sound mb not so loud as N73me or 6233,but it is fully with high quality.and most importantly,it is faster than N73me n 6233..oh ya,btw,you must sett the equalizer to make 5700 sound more loud,if you use default equalizer,the sound will not so loud.you can follow the equalizer setting that posted by Farhan in this forum.
Hi i found that there is a software upgrade for 5700 at nokia site. Has anybody installed the same. Pl let us know the good and the bad.
i bought dis phone 2 days back & found that phone is excellent, very fast as compared to N series phones. Sound is excellent, better than N73. Display is very good.
You can also install third party application, but only OS.3.1 upgraded softwares.
MRP of this phone in India is Rs. 11850/-
at dis price, it contains all feature, which we require in daily life.
Camera is also as far as 2MP is consered.
If u have any query please ask me.
Nokia has done great job with 5700
Keep It Up.
Nokia PC Suite is STILL pissing me off! Everytime I try to encode a movie with Nokia Video Manager, after 36 mins into the movie, the picture stops working and freezes, and only audio is available.
Also, with Nokia Music Manager, I am STILL unable to put album arts on my songs.
Any alternatives to the CRAPPY software that come with this phone?
how can you make this phone send applications to another phone through bluetooth, such as java games or .sis stuff? because every time i try to do that it sais "Unable to send protected object"
hey pple using this phone kindly let me know do u face ne audio prbs with it, can u guyz hear the person spking on the other end,,,, i wonder y m i facing this prbs with my fone with is jst 20 dayz old.. can sum1 suggest me sum thing. :-(
just got this phone the sound is loud and very clear through speakers, much better then ther n91 and i have yet to heare a phone with loudspeakers to sound like this
are u talking about in head fone sound? ciam asking about externel speakers are they have better sound than N73 or 6233? do thay have bass like 6233. i know it has audio chip so it produces good sound headfones. but here iam asking about external speakers.
That's just fine, gka.
By the way, is it really possible for 5700 to hold 8GB SDHC?
Other Nokia handsets can (like E90 and I forgot the other). Can 5700 be up to the task of storing up to 8GB? I heard that 8GB SDHC is now available here in the Philippines (unsure).
@ music master -
yes sorry for the mistake it does support 4 gb but the sales pakage wont come with a 4 gb .. but with a 512 mb / 1 gb
as for gka..
I would just like to correct your statement. Yeah, 5700 supports up to 4GB microSD but it doesn't come with one. Okay?
Typically the sales package would include either a 512MB or 1GB microSD (market dependent). It would be so generous of Nokia had they include a 4GB microSD.
4GB microSD's are to be purchased separately.
Now that makes sense.
