  Straight Talk Nokia E5

Here is a photo taken with the 5MegPixel here for full size

Out now!, the Nokia E5 from Straight Talk, this is the best phone that Straight Talk has ever offered! I has a great 5MP camera and fast 3G. There are some many more feature, you wont be disappointed.

The Nokia E5g is not a new technology it was released in late 2010,  technically it is the most powerful phone they have on offer, even though it lacks a touch screen it will still be the best one out there. The 3G will be on the AT&T network.

nokia e5 (refurbished)


I have a nokia e5 (refurbished) that I used for one day only. It does require a sim card which i do not include with it. It goes for $199 brand new from Wal-mart I would be willing to let mine go for $150 due to it being in great condition. Please let me know asap if you could because I need to pay our power bill. Thank you.

Great Phone


My wife has this phone and it does everything it is supposed to do. (I had to set up her facbeook account so she can MMS photos to it but other than that functionality is perfect). We just got back from a road trip, Navigation was excellent. We bought one refurbished for a family meber that lives with us, she loves the phone also. Great little Smartphone... and the refurbished price is amazing.

E% no longer available?


Entered my Orlando zip code and the E5 no longer shows up, but rather only reconditioned E71s. Has Straight Talk discontinued offering an ATT based smart phone? All the Androids are use the Sprint network...bummer.

According to the Straight Talk TOS it's against their TOS to tether or piggy back.
