Last time I used Nokia phone was in 2007, and after that, I was quite happy with the brands I was using. However, once again I decided to join the Nokia following bargain so I am back on Nokia now. For last one month and a half, I am using Nokia 5230. A nice phone and good to have it but I am not much satisfied. Well contradiction is there in my last statement but yes, I have to accept it is a nice phone but I am not satisfied because it is missing some certain features for which I bought it.

It is easy to use, and the touch panel works well hence it is bit slow. It has a wide screen so it’s fun to watch videos on it, its music player and radio are also cool but there is a certain feature which is annoying as any SMS dropped in while music, video of radio is on the ring tone spoiled the fun. It is something I am not much familiar with as in my last phone there was only vibration no sound in such case.

Nokia do not allow transferring Music from PC to Phone via blue tooth using pc suite. I got 2 GB memory card with it so far it is enough for me however; it can be extended up to 8 GB card. Writing SMS is not as cool as it used to be on other key oriented phone this might be the reason because I am not used to touch phones.

One thing I must mention here is its voice during the call is quite low, and sometimes it is hard to understand what other person is saying. It can be connected to any speaker using the stereo pin and one can enjoy music with louder voice.

Using internet is an interesting feature on it as being touch oriented phone its really cool to scroll and click on the desired links or pictures. The writing panel that appears while you are writing something e.g. SMS, Email, Text, Web Links, etc is quite user friendly and it changes itself to full key board from conventional keys of phone just by flipping it to the horizontal view. I have noticed that it turns into the landscape mode easily but it take time to sense when it is supposed to resume to the tower view.

Ufone has been a great service, at least for me and people using Ufone I know.

Whether its service or their advertising campaign, from top to bottom it has been amazing, their ideas of advertisement… mind blowing… every other day we see new ad and doesn’t we enjoy them? After all they are cute and hilarious. Aren’t they ;)?

Ufone is the first GPRS provider, not only that… Ufone has always been introducing new and unique services like Call blocking, Song catcher, Incoming call bonus and Smart code for balance recharge.

For me, it has never given me any problem… till now 😀

Now you must be thinking after so much of Ufone praise what is she going to tell us? Don’t worry there is nothing serious… I guess every network must be having this issue.

Balance inquiry, does it rings a bell? Lol I know they are charging nowadays to check balance, but how much? Does anyone have confirmed rate?

For me once it deduct 10 paisa, other day 50 paisa, and as of yet it’s completely random.

Secondly, when you call their helpline, they just take forever to pick up your call 😦 and you drain your balance while waiting for a representative. What do you say? I haven’t complained about balance inquiry charges issue yet… nor I will… after all I love my balance *grins*

But let me tell you something, some months ago a moron was harassing us on landline by his Ufone number, after so much of harassment, I called their helpline they asked me about number from which calls were coming, our landline number, time of calls receiving and helpline assistant promised me that within 24 hours we will stop getting those calls. And if I want to know who owns that number then I should call after 24 hours, calls were stopped and I forgot to call them back, who cares? I just wanted to get rid of harassment and they did it 🙂
