that nokia 3230 user is copying my nick - i didn't post those posts...
Hey PhotoRite SP 5.2.1 is out!
And Camera FX Pro 2.5 is out too and finally this one can support 3230.
Better, yes. Much better, may be not. Well I think 6600 firmware is quite stable by now compare to 3230.
Generally speaking 6630 is consider a higher class phone than 3230. It's running OS8 instead of OS7. Its processor's speed is almost doubled. So it's a much faster phone. It has variable zoom up to 6x for the camera unlike 3230 which is having step-zoom. I heard it has stereo sound. Sound level is much higher. But really depend on what u want actually. Coz 6630 is bigger and looks bulky. No infrared and no radio. And no joy-stick! (Hehe)
RS-MMC and RS-DV-MMC -- the DV stands for dual voltage. It means it can run at 3V or 1.8V. Newer phones like 6630 6680 6681 only support 1.8V so they can only accept RS-DV-MMC. The other 60 series phone can use both types.
Thanks for everything and I will do according to your instruction, copy and paste. If any problems, I will ask again.
I'm a phone addict and frequently change phones and after tried siemens and motorola phone, I appreciates more on nokia (so user friendly and yet so good). My last phone was sonyericsson K750i which I upgraded from 6230i. I assume the phone k750i should be very good but I used it for only a week and decided to go back this beautiful 3230.
Though the review of K750i is good but to me it just a better camera phone and nothing else, depends what you want. For me, 3230 has everything although is does not have stereo output but at least all the features are there. The K750i interface very similar to the old phones like K700, S700, etc.. nothing much to explore. (boring)
3230 got all the latest entertaining softwares like photo editor, dictionary, video editor, 3D java games, etc.. and the built quality-quite heavy but solid. The keypad are little tight that it make to last.
6230i are not too bad but about the same price as 3230, so it is better to get this 3230. Why? the 6230i screen is small, camera though 1.3mp but not very sharp when u upload to the PC (I tried). Sms had its limitation, after a while, need to delete some (3230 unlimited-phone or card memory can be choose).
For the casing, 3230 can be change but it's good to change original housing. I have a friend who change his phone housing to a compatible and need to force it to close and it crack the LCD display (wty void). Not worth it to save a few dollars.
Thanks for reading as I just love my 3230...
hi Nokia 3230 user and TC,
im using N6600 and i've an idea to change the mobile.. So, i tought to buy 3230... pls advise me, 3230 is much better than 6600 ???
Is 3230 better or 6630 better? what is the difference between RS-MMC and RS-DV-MMC?
For those who are deciding between 3230 and 6630, remember the 6630 has a faster processor, newer OS and 3G capability. It'll be better on the long run but if you change your mobiles often then this one does the job, plus Radio.
I just hate the fact that the 3230's battery is 760 not 900mAh.
hoy you guyz...........
could anyone tell me which is good between 6630 and 3230????/
i have now a nokia 6630 nut i'm still planning to change it with this phone.
could you help me????? just email me... thnak you.
My query to the experts here is whether there is any software which is capable of changing theme every one hour or so, I would be very greatful if you could send in a positive Reply...
I'd like to congratulate all of you who have kept this forum up and kicking with excitement as well as valuble information since the day it has started... It is no mean feat to have completed over a 100 pages of discussion without much repatition, which to my knowledge no other phone including 6600 has achieved!!! So keep up the good work and flaunt your 3230 with pride...
Nokia 3230 User:
Wow u r such a great fan of 3230 huh?
Anyway about the stuff in ur DV-RS-MMC, just put it in the card reader, copy everything into ur harddisk. Then switch to ur new card and copy everything in.
Err.. just make sure u have selected all files. Hmm, ok let me just be a bit more detail for the benefit of others who not sure what i'm talking about.
1. Create a folder at the pc
2. Browse ur RS-MMC using card reader using explorer (not the nokia phone browser and not using bluetooth or usb cable coz u can't see system files with that)
3. Press Ctrl + A to select all files
4. Click or select COPY
5. At the folder u created. Click or select PASTE
6. Switch to new RS-MMC
7. At the folder u created. Press Ctrl + A again to select all files.
4. Click or select COPY
8. At ur RS-MMC, click or select PASTE
It's good to keep a copy of everything in ur pc so anytime u can go back to initial stage. :)
I think it's one of the best phone I have so far. I used 7610, 6670, 6681, 6680, etc.. all those does not have infrared and radio. The 3D games for 3230 is marvellous, I took out the mmc card and developed 3R & 4R and the photos are surprisingly good.
I have also used 6230i and k750i, 6230i and k750i are just a normal phone with nothing much on them except camera.
I should said this 3230 is cheap and very good. I had it for S$578 + S$18 Mcard from M1 shop (some interest free for 6 mths citibank visa) and difference of S$200 to sign 2 yrs contract is not worth it at all.
For those, who had not decided whether to buy which phone but want a phone with everything-this is the one (Nokia 3230).
I am looking forward buying another red color 32320 for my wife, to me it's a good practical phone.
Lastly, anyone can advise on how to transfer all the softwares from the default 32mb rs-mmc to a new maybe 256mb mmc as I don't want to miss out all the softwares burn into the default card (so useful). I am quite puzzled why Nokia supplied only 32mb instead of 64mb (normal 64mb to other models).
Thanks and I love my nokia 3230!!!!!!
beginner: just to let you know, if you have a card reader, simply dump the ultramp3 application into your eg. Others folder - then proceed to Tools > File Mgr > Select Memory card memory > Others > simply open that ultramp3 application and follow the steps to complete installation :)
iamlica: yes there is - if you're going for Nokia Original casing it would cost you an approx amount of $35 - $70 it depends actually - fake casing are cheaper though :) contact a professional to do the changing of casing for you :)
VIkas: i would greatly recommend 3230 between those 2 models since my ex-handphone was a Nokia 6600 :) but in terms of stability, 6600 is far superior plus a better OS - and - in terms of functions, 3230 is the superior one.
Hi Nokia 3230 users,
I am confused between 6600 and 3230.. which one should I go for and why.
Please help me decide.
is it posible to change this phone's casing? what if it gets scratched? then you'll have to live with it forever? is there a way to change the case of the phone?
Everyone pls help!!!
im a new user for symbian phone. im currently bought this phone n need to install some software into the phone but dunno how to do it...
for example me already download 'ultramp3' from internet to my pc. after that i extract it from 'winzip' to 'nokia application installer file' (the folder got 4 boxes wan). then after that what should i do so dat the application can install in my phone???
ps: i got card reader n already install 'nokia pc suite' n just dunno how to move the file to phone only...
i would very appreciate anyone who help me solve the problem. thanks...
tom: checkout at http://www.visualradio.com/ to see if your country supports it and etc, the required information should be listed down there.
TC: hmm... my friend have it as 3.0510.2ch but i don't see a point to update it as certain features which i wants it to be fixed have yet to be fixed - so no point upgrading it :)
MAy: to your dismay - the cable does NOT included in the package - the package only contains the following items: Charger, Handset, Battery, RS-MMC 32mb, Manual. that's it :)
My frens all are having this phone.. they say its great.. I had seen it myself and i agree that this phone is great..
But one question in my mind is: Does this phone model come with a data cable? Cause in Singapore, My frens say don have.. But from some ppl comment in here, They had the data cable thingy in their package. CAn tell mi what is suppose to be in the package??
