Don't worry, mate. Already found out how to upgrade the software. Didn't find what's the newest version, tho.
@anand: i've taken into consideration also 6300 and i realized that 6233's battery lasts longer. besides this, they're almost the same... as far as i compared them.
>>>Your welcome,i made 2 recent posts but i can't see them anyway i have firmware v5.10 and i have no problem with this firmware, the latest version is v5.43 but they claim that this might be for Europe. If you want to learn more about nokia 6233 i suggest you visit this link http://migs.wordpress.com/mobile/
>>>About upgrading your firmware you need to have:
1.nokia pc suite
2.nokia software updater
3.internet connection (DSL recommended)
4.more than 256MB RAM
5.cable for connecting your mobile to PC
1.Back up your data or remove the memory card when you start your update.
2.NEVER! NEVER! disconnect your phone while updating cause it will damage your unit.
3.Make sure your phone's battery is fully charge.

i really like this phone but as always i am still a little uncertain about buying it. i was also thinking of nokia e50, as it has a feature that 6233 doesnt: document viewer. i see that 6233 has a messaging feature called 'email' but does this mean that i can use outlook on it or outlook is just for the ones that have document viewer? if anyone can help me in deciding which phone to pick, i look forward to your comments. thanks
what's the difference between 6233 and 6234? :-/ except the way they look :P

Vergel, thank you :).
How could I upgrade my firmware if I need to?
And how does your firmware work? Any bugs or anything? Oh, and which is the newest version on this phone so far?
Sorry for all these questions, but I want to know :).
>>>dial *#0000# to know the firmware version of your phone, i have v5.10 firmware
Superb and Vergel,
Thank you for your information :).
I'm looking at this phone for quite a long time now, and I'm collecting all the info that's interest me :).
Mine doesn't have any lags at all. My fone is more than a year old and with firmware V4.91.
If I were you , grab this fone! U'll never ever regret having one. It's the best fone ever in its class. Performance is superb.
>>>yes there's a lag but it's occassional and tolerable, not quite a BIG deal. i experience it sometimes when i exit an application but as i say it's tolerable and i think it lags for about 1-3 seconds (do you consider 1-3 seconds a lag?) anyway i suggest you grab this phone, it's d'best and it ROCKS!
This phone is a very good phone....it has every feature what u look in a phone....finally a phone very affordable and sexy features.

hello.taken picture are very nice and alost the video clips have best quality that you cant beleive it.i tink 6233 is the best phone among all of s40 and java phones.
Hello, since I'm thinking about getting one of these thingies, I would like to ask some of you guys, who own this cell, is there any lag in it? I mean, when you go through menu, all options etc. etc. Can you notice a slight lag?
Thanks in advance :).
>>>yes, they can see you if you face the rear camera or if you want face the mirror so that you can also see the one you're calling :)
just wanted to know if it's really possible for the person you're speaking to- through the video calling option to see you.
