after having lost my original Nokia 5230 I had no hesitation in choosing the same modle again. I find it easy to use and understand excellent value for money.

Good points:
Unfortunately, I have just returned from with my third Nokia 5230 as the previous 2 were faulty. There fore I have no good points on this phone.
Bad points:
The first phone I purchased became faulty within 7 days. The first phone's camera broke and was unresponsive displaying only a black screen.The first phone I purchased became faulty within 7 days. The first phone's camera broke and was unresponsive displaying only a black screen.

The second phone which I was given by O2 also was faulty. Within 5 minutes of purchasing the device I noticed 2 faults. Whilst typing messages the phone jams on delete and will delete your entire message and will continue to jam for approx 30 secs not allowing you to retype your message. Secondly I was unable to make calls from my contacts as the any of the call buttons on the touch screen or the actual physical call button were broken.

Generally I find the phone weak. The touchscreen is not responsive enough and when rotating the phone or changing pages it WHITE SCREENS a lot.It is generally very slow.

It doesn't come with a USB Cable or Wifi. Memory card space is very small.

I can not get a refund or exchange for another phone so I am forced to exchange for a third Nokia 5230. Lets hope this one lasts a bit longer. I have been very disappointed with the customer service I have received and most defiantly feel that was customer service rights have been ignored.

I would not recommend this phone and I am considering leaving the service provider.

Good points:
It comes with a really cool guitar pick thingy. So you can tap the screen with?
Bad points:
Pretty much everything. It's slow, it freezes, there's not much point in that really cool guitar pick thingy, because the P.O.S. touch screen sometimes doesn't even work. It has no unique features. If you load it up with any programs, it REALLY doesn't like it. Don't bother, you can get a way better phone for the price.
