It is the best xpressmusic ever it is xprandable up to 16gb and it has wifi it has an 8mp camera and it has a free 8gb meory card in the retail package and its audio quality is the best no xpressmusic can beat this one because this phone runs on symbian s80 6th edition and it has 3g;it has a proccesor:900mhz the proccesor is very fast its the only phone that has a proccesor that fast and the box of the phone is realy large you can fit there 10 boxes of nokia N97 and its also a touch screen screw the other phone because nokia 5130 xpressmusic is the most appealing phone of all and it has a very high quality flashlight brighter than the N97 no phone can beat it because all the other phones are bullshit especially the B21 Duo Myphone never by that stupid phone

i've been using this phone for bout 5 months and it's good.
basic phone for your daily lie, my friends love it and they say it's so cute. plus worth the price.

camera works well if there is light, slightly mediocre
video cam is not that good kinda blurred.
messaging is very good and user friendly i love to text with it.

but sometimes my phone is slow, maybe too much songs and themes downloaded.

i love it, a good companion, i always listen to music and use radio especially at night.

over all 9.5/10

Yep, there is flight mode under profiles. It will disable all connections when you activate it... it even displays an airplane icon on your home screen... :-)

HI everyone :)
i bought this fone 2 months ago its still working fine the camera is good but it could hve been better, music volume is quiet loud and quiet clear, ive got a 8gb memory card and it has no problems even though nokia said " max 2gb ", flight mode is under profiles, the video recoreding isnt that great, easy to txt with, browsing the web on this fone isnt fast due to the lack of it beenig 3g, overall a good fone for music lovers and very cheap for a xpress music fone..

The better option for u is to get 5130 Xpress Music only. I'm using that model since 4 months. I'm fully satisfied wit that model. In super nova the sound quality 'll not be as good as this. And also the camera is well equiped than the supernova edition.
My Best Wishes wit luv:-)

hunain, 11 Oct 2009hey guys plz help me i have got 5130 and its internal memor... moreThere's no chance of memory decreasing. May be some files would hav been added in ur gallery files. Check in ur gallery files especially in ur recieved files.
If no such thing is found then u hav to go to the option "RESTORE FACTORY SETTINGS". But be sure that u hav a back up for all ur data's before the restoration is done.
If it also does'nt go correct wit u, then ur mobile may hav some hidden data's which we cant see. For that we can delete that data's by using some software's like "FILE EXPLORER" which we can find in some websites like "".
My Best Wishes:-)
