Awesome

Good to hear they didn't completely leave us all in the dark. I use my N900 now (and plan to get the N9) but the 5800 is a great backup, and an even better GPS than the N900.
Tried to update but nothing yet.

Opera mini?

How is the web browser on this phone? Would I be able to load Opera mini onto it?

ringtone assigned in contacts?

I am looking for some features, applications & general stuff about my phone. I have T-Mobile, not sure if that makes a difference with this Nuron 5230.
I'd like a count-down timer & stop watch but they don't seem to be part of the phone. Guess I'll just download an app.
I have read on a forum for the phone on the T-Mobile site that ringtones can be assigned to individual contacts, but I don't see an option for that.

I've had the phone about a week & like it - just need to learn to use it.

questions & info.

guess I'm trying to find out about the Nuron & thought it would be better to look & post here rather than call T-Mobile. This is my first "nice" phone - haven't had a new one in over 3 years & even then it was a free phone with no data, just began texting a year ago. I moved from AT&T, so now data & texts are affordable.

I'm behind the learning curve.
Current questions: can I calibrate the screen for the touch typing? Can I assign individual ringtones to contacts - can I record or download those ringtones?

I like the cheap data plan, the phone seems to navigate the web (though a bit small & clumsy) & have a decent GPS.

I also like (so far) T-Mobile's on-line website, much easier entering contacts there then on the phone (yeah, did...

T-mo vs ATT Data Plan

Any idea what AT&T would require for a data plan? $30 or $10?
T-Mobile for whatever reason is not requiring the smartphone rates for data on this device.
I am considering the Nokia 5230 directly from Nokia which as ATT 3G frequencies.

over in the "Nokia Nuron Available Starting March 24" discussion:

It's a mixed bag...

I have had some time to play around with a pre-release demo model of the Nuron, about three hours in total, and I find that it works very well for what it has been endowed with... although I will say that I wish they had put an improved camera (3.2 megapixel or better) with flash into this phone. Wifi with UMA support would have made this phone better as well. In all, this phone is a mixed bag; it has some good strengths, and some flaws as well.

Using the phone's resistive touchscreen without a stylus wasn't bad at all. Ovi maps was really fun to play with, and the browsing and downloading speed was decent (3.6 Mbps in theory). I find that S60 5th Edition, although nearly dead as an OS, is quite functional, and was very intuitive for ...

5230 Plain and Nuron

Nokia has two devices with the 5230 label. They look pretty much alike. The difference is in the 3G bands.

The Nuron has AWS band 3G. The 5230 has 850/1900 MHz WCDMA for 3G.

The Nuron has T-Mobile US 3G capability. The 5230 without the Nuron designation works on other 3G networks such as AT&T.

The 850/1900 version is available on the nokiausa.com web site. The Nuron, as of this moment, is not.

I kinda see what you were doing with the title

But it's still somewhat confusing. Losing your touch, Eric?

It's About Time!

It's been a long time since T-Mobile and Nokia came together to offer an S60 based device. It's a shame they didn't take the 5800 Xpressmusic and change the WCDMA frequencies to T-Mobile's AWS band.

Compared to the 5800 this has less user memory, less camera, no flash, no on-board stylus. Sad T-Mobile makes a significant step forward with the device but it could have been so much better with an AWS capable 5800 XpressMusic.
