  • Excerpt: I have this phone now for 1 jear. I dont like the fact that you can't custimize it like android. One thing I like is the battary life. I can do 3 or 4 days with it. Overall, a phone for the user who wants a bit more than only a phone call. It's not worth the 214 dollars on this site. I get it for...

  • Excerpt: Nokia / T-mobile do not include an operator's manual with the Nuron 5230.  Without exception they refer to a pdf download for instructions.  I do not always have acess to a computer when I have a question about how to operate the phone.  There suggestion is to print out the 180+/- page document and carry it around with me.  What a joke!!!

okay as an inexpensive solution for your touchscreen needs

  • Excerpt: I purchased the Motorola Backflip the day it was released, but after about 4 months, I changed my service provider.  Because I have been experiencing financial difficulty, I opted to get a special internet package from T-Mobile which included 2 free Nokia Nuron phones with a family plan.  I hated it from the time I opened the box!  It looks like an old Nintendo game controller.  It has no screen protection - it doesn't flip or slide or anything.

It's not an IPhone, but it's not bad

  • Excerpt: I have had the Nokia 5230 for about 6 months now.  We changed carriers and so I had to get a new phone and I chose this one.  I owned a touch screen before and I liked it so I decided to get another one.  The 5230 was really my only choice for a touchscreen with our new cell phone provider.  I would get an Iphone if I had the choice but unfortunately AT&T does not have service where I live.  They have coverage here you just can't sign up for a plan.

Satisfactory phone

  • Excerpt: If you are looking for a basic smartphone, then you may want to consider this one. It is a touch phone and has a touch qwerty keypad. Many online websites state that this phone has free GPS, but I think that it is only free if you have a  data plan. That it a main drawback for me. Another drawback is the "lock". I sometimes forget to lock the phone,and the internet browser pops up and I get charged for the data used.

Nokia Nuron just a basic smartphone

  • Excerpt: This is an entry level touch screen smartphone. It could be so much better, but it is not, unfortunately. User interface is okay - not a steep learning curve, but there is one. Good stuff: great choice of apps from OviStore, free and paid ones, battery lasts a good while, speaker volume is good For some reason, calls to Mexico are extremely difficult to make with this phone. for some reason the calls just don't go through.

  • Excerpt: My sister owns this phone She is very hard on phones, usually going through one every 3 months if that. She has had this phone for a little over 6 months now. She has dropped it many of times. Some of the places include: tub, snow, mud, and sink. The phone is still fully functional. The only problem she has is it will freeze up. When she is online is when it usually freezes up or after a long phone conversation.

OK BACKUP SMART PHONE

GUEST, Mwave.com
4 January 2012
  • Summary: I bought mine refurb locked no-contract directly from provider and only paid a small fraction of the cost listed here, so i cant complain.
  • Pros: If you dont have any expectations and dont compare it to android or even 5800 this is an ok phone. Its loud, takes sd card, limited customization, some cool symbian apps available for it.
  • Cons: dumbed down version of 5800, underpowered, slower, only one speaker, laggy. I ran both nokia maps and Garmin xt when i had this phone. Its nothing amazing but for me Garmin worked better than Nokia maps.
