Goodness!!! If you want a stereo mp3 player, buy an Ipod!!! Don't you think!?? I just bought my N3230 last weekend, and for me, it's the best fone for now at its price and over-all package! fm radio, mp3, 1.3mp, games, ptt, etc, and the stylish look. It's elegant, useful, and swabeh!!!! :)
Well I just bought the phone a few days ago, everything is great. Except for the fact that (I assume everyone is having the same problem), that the pictures are flattened a bit. And yes, as was suggested before, you will need to transfer to your PC and then resize it one by one. Which is of course a lot of hassle if you take a lot of pictures everyday, so I am disappointed by this fact.
Considering the previous models does not have this problem, I am starting to wonder if there is a fix to this? I think the resolution is too big 1280 x 960-something. In the past the resolution was only 1024x768, thus probably why the previous model doesn't "flatten" the image to fit the phone.
So I am still looking for threads on how to solve this issue, as I am a person who takes alot of pictures, I don't prefer to edit it one by one.
For those who wonder by how many pixels you would need to resize it, I have run through several tests, and I have found that 1200 x 960 something would be the "original" size.
Decrease the width by 80 pixels and you should get a roughly original picture. Of course I may be off by a few pixels, but you go give it a try. I used Adobe Photoshop 7.0 to play with it.
Goodluck, and oh, anyone knows how to fix this problem please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Does any one know how much 3230 and 6260 will cost in singapore ? if your not much in to megapixel cameras and EDGE .. which is the better preferance..specially in terms of easiness to use ?
Regarding the pics proportion compress problem on N3230, I've email Nokia HK, they said they're NOT aware this bug and suggest this is my particular phone problem. Quite disappointed to Nokia HK customer services. I've tested on five Nokia 3230 and can find this problem easily by bare eyes. (You can test it also, try to capture a round ball, then you will notice the pic saved in your phone will appear as a sphere) To recover to the normal round shape, you need to transfer the file to ur PC, and use a photo editor software to resize the image height, i.e. to stretch the image looks taller.
Overall speaking, N3230 is really a good phone, with comprehensive functions, and in a comfortable size.
One question, anyone try on Nokia PC Suite 6.5? What's the difference from the last ver 6.41?
In HongKong, N3230 is official selling at USD410 in Nokia shop, but we can buy at USD382 in some small local shops.
What's ur firmware version in other countries? In HongKong, they're V3.0512.0ch 23-03-05 RM-51.
P.S. To get this, you can type *#0000#
Copy of question from 08/04 applies to me also, as Nick put it so well, why change- I have just bought this phone on orange (uk) and am very satisfied with it, except for one drawback - the standby screen is somehow tailored to Orange - it has a strip down the left hand side of the screen with shortcuts to contacts, messages etc. Unfortunately these shortcuts are much more difficult to use than the normal nokia screen (for example, you can't hit left to start a new SMS).
Is it possible to change this so that when my phone turns on i get the normal nokia standby screen instead of this Orange rubbish? Can anyone help or even tell me they have the same problem?
Discovered that hold menu down & enter tel application will get rid of orange side menu but do anything & it's back again. Cheers in advance.
I bought the Nokia 3230 recently. Photos stunning and video is fine and for long time. Its very feature rich mobile with lot of video and photo editing utilities, Browsing experience is very rich. But both netfront / Opera is lacking. Buttons to be get adjusted over time. and removing Sim card or memory card is very tedious affair. delete and escape buttons are side by side.. to be careful until get adjusted. Very very good compared to my earlier Nokia 6600. it is good selection. Looks also good and sturdy.
i just want 2 ask where can i download the ADDITIONAL STYLES for the Video Editor, because its really fun, and i want to download some more styles, because i cant download through my mobile phone...
whats the website?
and is there any anti-virus that's compatible with 3230..??
thanks in advance...!
what kind of data are you referring to?
if it's contact number you can use infrared to transfer all your data from 8310 to 3230.
you have to send it one by one though.
but it's a lot better than typing them all over again.
This fone is available in Pakistan in just $380, pretty fair price. Despite the mp3, this fone is excellent, there is a software available called "pro equilizer" that will sharpen its mp3 playback just similar to 6230 but im still lookin for it:(
why this phone less than 6670.d500 is it poor although same camera and radio. i buy 6230i now
'anyone on earth'...? how rude.
yes, there IS a way.
pen and paper. Transfer all ur contacts from your 8310 using pen..and write it down on paper. Then, using the paper, transfer it all back to the 3230 by manually keying in the contacts' details.
Can anyone on earth tell me how do i transfer the data from 8310 to 3230 ? Is there a way ?
I'm looking for the sloution desperately.
To the lost one,
I'm afraid its pretty bad indeed, but thats looking at only one bad aspect of the phone. I advice you not to go for this one if you are a real mp3 fan and if you are not so particular about mp3 playback, this phone rocks and its soft on your pocket as well !!!!
how bad is the mono mp3 player?
why should i buy 3230 and not 6670? pls help
I got the phone 2 days back. My photos are coming out only in compressed format. I see no significant improvement from the 7610 i previously owned in the photo quality.
