The good: The Nokia 5230 Nuron has free maps and voice-guide navigation via Ovi Maps, 3G, and excellent call quality, all at an affordable price. It's also the first Nokia smartphone with a U.S. carrier to offer access to the Ovi Store.
The bad: The Nuron lacks Wi-Fi and a document viewer. Its user interface is clunky and confusing, and we wish it had a capacitive touch screen. No flash for the camera.
The bottom line: The Nokia 5230 Nuron for T-Mobile isn't the most advanced or fastest smartphone on the market, but budget-conscious customers will find an incredible deal here.
Does what any basic touch screen can

Pros: Good resistant touch screen, text input ok, music playback great, free gps with voice works flawlessly, durable build, light weight, widgets & internet work fine.
Cons: screen reflective in sunlight, 2 mp with flash.

Summary: I "tested" this phone by getting it for my gf´s 10 yr-old daughter. Been a year and still going strong! In fact I got 2 more for each of my own kids ages 18 & 20 and they love it too. Facebook widget & other apps work well. So if you´re a parent on a budget this phone will please the kids for some time or until it gets dropped into the toilet or pool. Anyway, I highly recommend the nokia 5230.

Pros: Bought for £70.00 on prepaid. Great feature especially GPS. Easy to use, I've not had a Symbian device for a few years. Music player is very good and free GPS with turn by turn is superb.
Cons: Sybian S60 is a bit inconsistant will input, but then that's no different from other S60 devices. No Wi-Fi, although at this price point something has to give. No USB cable included in box.
Summary: There are some things missing from the spec most notably Wi-Fi, but compared with other phones at this price point the addition of GPS with the turn by turn more ...
Summary: There are some things missing from the spec most notably Wi-Fi, but compared with other phones at this price point the addition of GPS with the turn by turn more than makes up for it. Fully functioning GPS for £70 that also works as a phone too.
>>ALL<< smartphone features BROKEN on prepaid!
by gvdgvdgvd on July 21, 2010
Pros: It doesn't cost five million dollars.
Cons: ALL (>>ALL<<) smart-phone features are COMPLETELY INOPERABLE on prepaid! You want visual voicemail? TOO BAD! You want to download free apps? TOO BAD! You want to do points of interest in Ovi Maps? TOO BAD! Phone software updates? NOPE.
Summary: Buying this phone for prepaid you would do better to take $170 and LIGHT IT ON FIRE. NONE of the features that make this phone a "smart" phone ACTUALLY FUNCTION ...
Summary: Buying this phone for prepaid you would do better to take $170 and LIGHT IT ON FIRE. NONE of the features that make this phone a "smart" phone ACTUALLY FUNCTION when this phone is prepaid on t-mobile.
So if ALL of the smartphone features are INTENTIONALLY BROKEN, then why buy this phone? You can't get new apps for it. You can't update the software for it. You can't get points of interest for the mapping software. You can't even do visual voicemail with it!
So why bother? You'd be much (MUCH!) better off with one of t-mobiles garbage phones that come for free in a bag of Doritos than to buy this phone that's had its legs, arms, and head chopped off by its abysmally bad carrier.
Such a promising phone, and a complete WASTE of money. NONE of it works on prepaid. It's going back in the box and back to costco; this is fraud!
