  Straight Talk Nokia E5

Here is a photo taken with the 5MegPixel camera..click 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.

Comment: 

Straight talk has clocked the internet radio function. When you download the app from Nokia it won't run.

Comment: 

can you tether Internet via bluetooth or USB with this phone?

Comment: 

how does the e5 compare to the e71? Are there Amy major differences?

Comment: 

how do you get to the screensavers on the nokia e5 from straight talk

Comment: 

Is this a good phone?

Comment: 

i like that phone

Comment: 

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

Comment: 

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.

Comment: 

I am disappointed that I can not up load pictures to facebook...
