Very Terrible!

JackIsOG, CNET

  • Pros: The ovi Store, which has a series of free apps, most of the call functions.
  • Cons: Most of the phone system, even though this phone was free, I thought, that this phone was going to be my best phone, after recording videos, i couldn't watch the video and was really annoyed with this problem

This is not worth your money. It malfunctions and causes many problems.

  • Summary: I bought the Nuron two years ago. I bought it for texting and calling. Here's what I've found. Pros: The camera is pretty good for a phone this cheap. It offers apps.. Call quality is fairly good. However, I've found this phone to be very VERY problematic. Cons: It freezes. I've never used the web nor downloaded any apps, but it freezes just about every day. When I'm texting and I receive a call, it buzzes and won't let me push any buttons, not even power off the phone.

Total bust trying to use unlocked phone with T-Mobile

Amazon Customer, Amazon
13 May 2011
  • Summary: I bought this phone here because at the time it was $30 cheaper than what T-Mobile wanted non-contract. When I got it, I put my SIM card in. Calling worked fine, but I couldn't get the data service to work. After talking to many different people at T-Mobile (with several different answers), I concluded that the right answer was that the unlocked phone wasn't allowed by the network to use the data services (at least not 3G services).

  • Excerpt: I have had this phone for 3 months, or well i have had 7 of these phones in 3 months bc each one had the same problems.

  • Pros: Nice camera, Responsive Keyboard
  • Cons: NO WIFI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!​!!!!!!!!!, GLITCHES!!!!!!!!!!!, FREEZES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, SCREEN GOES WHITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, SLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, SCROLLING IS HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, +others

  • Excerpt: the phone is slow and laggy. programs r very poorly constructed, have the worst aim software ever. have to go through a lot of commands just to make a simple call. if it wasnt for it is able to go onto the internet id stick with a regular cell phone from 10 years ago rather than this one. with aim left on your battery only last about 2 hours at most.

Review on Nokia 5230 Nuron

Kelsey, Phone Arena
27 January 2011
  • Excerpt: It's easy to work with but the quality of the phone just sucks. The phone has so many problems with it. I haven't dropped it once nor put it near water or anything like that. I only have had for about 4 months and I already hate it. Everything about this phone sucks. Do NOT waste your money on it.
  • Pros: Easy to work.
  • Cons: Turns off Randomly, Wont answer calls, Camera doesnt work, Freezes

Nice gadget, disastrous phone

Fawles Rowke, Phone Arena
30 November 2010
  • Excerpt: I might have a defective phone (but I doubt that Nokia will honor its warranty) or Nokia admits that it made a mistake when it put the phone on the market. I am convinced that this model represents a design failure. I have owned the phone for six months, and I feel that either there is something wrong with my phone or Nokia's decision to put this model on the market was a grave mistake.

No 3G on Tmobile

E. Onal, Amazon
15 October 2010
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this phone. The dealbreaker is that it doesn't support 3G on Tmobile network. It is roughly 3 times slower compared to an TM506 when downloading. On the product page if you look carefully, it does show that 3G is not supported on Tmobile. This should be emphasized more -- here in the US you basically have two options AT&T and Tmobile, and if you have Tmobile you are pretty much out of luck.
