Looks like a good phone almost same as nokia 5800. and still has the gps nat sav too
#7
That price is for vodafone - i'm on O2 and that makes it +£20ish extra. I've looked online and see that its possible to get unlock codes for free - anyone know if they work??

All phones I've had from e2save have been unlocked. It's not a guarantee, but I don't know anyone who hasn't had an unlocked phone.

how does the free sat nav work? is it included free with maps or do you need acess to internet to download maps and get voice navigation
#12
was going to post this - just ordered one. Looks like a steal if only for the GPS

Plus there is a healthy modding comunity for these phones:

The Sat Nav is called Ovi Maps and is made by Nokia, it is updated via Ovi Suite which you install or a laptop or desktop computer, which has since been updated to be less buggy in updating the maps. You can choose many maps from all over the world and also voices. It works basically the same as a Tom Tom. The main thing for me that it lacks is comprehensive list of safety cameras, it has some but it misses SPECS cameras completely. However as a Sat Nav it's pretty decent and well featured. The phone has an inbuilt GPS and is backed up by A-GPS which works over the Internet. The Sat Nav also includes weather, events nearby, lonely planet, michelin guide, Qype (business finding service), Expedia, Time Out, Trip Adviser, Map Reporter (to correct mapping mistakes) and Bookatable. There's a Drive mode and a Walk mode which are self explanatory. The Sat Nav looks and works best in landscape mode in my opinion, you can also sweep your finger left or right on the display to get different views, e.g. 2D, 3D, text directional view.

The most annoying thing about this phone is that it lags, once you load it up with apps it lags even worse, the Symbian OS is clunky, slow and prone to nasty bugs, which mean things don't work as they should and often you need to spend time on the Internet trying to work out problems. Having said that it's a multitasking OS, with a lot of features and an app store called Ovi Store which has free and paid for apps. For £54 it must be the best smartphone at that price. Just wish I hadn't paid £99 for mine earlier this year from cack.phone.rob.house.

Facebook works well on the phone using the inbuilt app, I have email pushed to my phone for free and displayed on the homescreen, If the phone was a lot faster it would be a lot better to use. I also have Opera Mobile browser installed as it's better than the inbuilt browser and I have Skyfire browser installed so I can watch iplayer and flash videos (only really of any use if you're in a strong 3G/HSDPA covered area).

I just looked at overclocking the phone, I personally wouldn't go for 800MHz but around 600Mhz would be good as Nokia's flagship phones run ARM 11 cpus at 680MHz and are definitely faster than the 5230. The 5230 runs Symbian OS v9.4, Series 60 rel. 5, if some one can get Symbian^3 running on it I'd also update to it although I think that requires a dedicated GPU.

http://mobile.engadget.com/2010/09/22/nokia-5230-brutally-overclocked-to-800mhz/

Anyway I'm not sure that is even genuine. Overclocking would be high on my list of priorities for the phone as I often want to smash it in frustration.

Whats 'modding' please?

You can ask them to send an unlocked phone if you order over the phone.
I just had a call from them to say the Samsung Tocco I ordered last week for £40 is not available so they're sending me a brand new one for just a tenner more.

I paid more than this for one of these phones - well worth this price. Works fine for web (with Opera mini) and to track how far and fast you go on a run or ride (with a free ap). Built in maps (and Lonely Planet guide) aren't bad and you can also download google maps onto it. Speed doesn't seem that bad to me.

You'll need to budget about £1 for the stupid type of USB cable it needs to connect to a PC and you'll also need to buy a Micro SD card for it.
#22
real nice find.ordered.thanks
#23
just ordered one for number one daughter - however I also set up last weekend a tesco sim deal - £10 per month so the vodaphone £10 top up not needed. If I use that vodaphone sim it in the phone will it lock the phone to that provider? ie - should I avoid doing this?

Any help appreciated people!

Opera Mobile works on this phone and I'd recommend using that instead of Opera Mini.

Why is this deal SO hot? Three are doing the same phone refurbished like this for £59.99 but that includes £10 top-up (which lasts 90 days) and you get TCB of £12. This works out to be £49.99 (before the £10 top-up) and after cashback £37.99

See this deal on THREE

DO NOT click on the above link, rather go through Quidco or preferably TopCashBack (as no admin fee charges & they top-up your cashback by up to 10% additional)
#27
Also its been £59.99 for months @ Three. Note that the 5230 does NOT come with a USB data/sync cable (either brand new or refurbished) [see nokia website for further info on why they wanted to be such cheapskates!]
#28
Should get £7.50 Quidco from E2save and it's (almost certainly) unlocked. No idea what unlocking costs.

Paid £70 for mine (cheaper than Satnav with European mapping before my holiday) and it's well worth it.
#29
Great deal - ordered mine. Will be worth checking the firmware version when it arrives as there was an update from v12 to v20 a few months back that (apparently) improved GPS performance.
#30
Has anybody taken delivery of one of these yet and can confirm that they are unlocked?
#31
Nope - and won't be for a while at this rate - got an email a couple of hours after ordering saying that "due to UK stock levels" delivery will be delayed for around 7-14 days. Hope that really is delayed and not non-existent.
#32
got mine delivered this morning, brand new - just need to buy a memory card and cable now
#33
yep its unlocked - tested with orange and o2
nice phone and no scratches at all.
comes in a white box as expected with charger and manual

the white is also available on clearance for the same price if anyone interested.
#34
Great phone for the money. Bought 2 a month ago. Sat nav not as easy to use as a TomTom but OK for nothing. Also plenty of apps&games to download for free off the web to keep you happy!

GPS working but no maps on mine, do U have to download them?
#36
@ Dinger 42

Install Nokia Ovi Suite on your PC (click), connect your phone to the PC by blue-tooth or a micro-USB cable (there was a deal for a Blackberry one @ Amazon for 99p recently) and download the maps you want. Took me a few attempts to get it working but once it is you have a worldwide SatNav for £45. It's also worth getting an in-car charger (couple of quid off eBay) 'cos GPS drains the battery.
