i am sure nokia is a very good brand name. so i agree there are some bugs with the 5230, in fact i hace a problem quit similar to the one discribed here. i will do the recipe described here, i have tried the setting reset, i will do now the soft and hard reset if needed.
why? becasue my mp3 files does not play, when i want to create a new profile, it does not work and also the screen turns black and then it restablishes. also (it was my fault) because i have a mix with my folders, because once i change the language from my nokia spanish to english, and then i have the spanish folders and the english folders, aaaaaaaaaa very unconfortable.
hope very soon, nokia will help us to get a release or a new firmware to solve those some invonvenients.
Hey guys i am in the family. But i have few restarts and the msg editing is done automatically like one backspace leads to clear all the text.
Changing theme restarts the phone with the companies memory card. and overheating when i keep my phone in pocket / listing to music more than 30mins i think it needs fresh air or AC or finland environment.
My firmware is V20 and the available is V21 and now i am thinking whether to update my version or stick to this. Reply guys anybody updated to newer version ?
