THANK YOU for clarifying that and can I just add BEWARE because Amazon has a seller Bargain Cell selling a GTMax $1.99 mini-usb purportedly for the 5230...I know I know, too good to be true, but I had actually HEARD that it wouldn't charge through the usb but the picture is very deceiving.

Just called and they are mailing me an alternative no charge and said to keep the other. Fair enuf.

That's funny, because if you look up the 5230 device and areas that the pc suite supports it shows that it does infact charge via usb connectivity cable CA-101 but I too haven't had any luck in doing so!

oops... do you mean that I can't connect my 5230 to my PC to make any software updating, that I can't transfer any pictures from the phone to the PC via the cable 101 ? nor via PC suite nor via Ovi suite ?  thanks.

i purchased a bluetooth that uses the same size charge fitting thus i can charge the nokia 5230 by the usb hub.
