Excerpt: there just is not enought info to do a proper rewiew, im sure when nokia has all its feed back on the 5230 cell phone will get another look at it. untill then lets take another look for a cell phone that have been on the market for a while.
Excerpt: I own this phone right now and I can honestly say that I have never hated a phone so much in my life. Now i will give it credit if what your looking for is a phone that wont die after a two hour phone call then this is the phone for you. But for those of us who use this phone all day the battery on it sucks! Not to mention the touch screen. I hate the touch screen because it is always causing a delay or makes my phone freeze up.
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.
Too many other great smart phone options out there to bother with this one.

Summary: This phone is not at all user friendly. It requires repetitive button pushing to do what you want it to do. Example: You have to confirm the text you are writing, and then send. There are too many extra steps that are totally unnecessary. It has very few features and the screen has a weird setup for a smart phone because it is so thin and tall. My daughter broke this phone and I wasn't even upset. It's inexpensive, but wasn't even worth that to me.
Total bust trying to use unlocked phone with T-Mobile
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. The screen went white very often and the phone also reset all by its self and then froze wen it TRIED to boot back up. Here is my opinion on the phone: if u look up the word crap in the dictionary, the picture of the phone will be right there.
