Sir, with regards to your network setting, if you have only GSM network, much better for you to set it to GSM only, as setting it in dual mode will only cause your battery to consume more power as at this setting, your phone will still look for 3G signal in dual mode and page your network if it has 3G and thus consumes more power.
previous post gone too long..!!!
> network mode
> dual mode/UMTS/GSM
what diff does the 3 options make??
mine is 'dual mode' (default), our network is not 3G, i dnt use GPRS.
is it ok?
me frm India, using N6233 for abt 3wks now. no serious problem !!
> camera sound can be put OFF.
>not freezed/hanged even once!!
>pretty comfortable n soft keypad.
>500 contacts r too much for a coll stud.
>hear a lot music, so req daily recharging of batt.
>however, vedio forwarding option is available(min 10sec), but cant use!!
my major DOUBTS:
mem. card :
64mb, but can use only abt 57mb, rest(abt 7mb, almost 10%) is shown as 'free mem' but cant use it in any way. uploading data thru bluetooth, moving frm internal mem, none of ths ths is possible. for saving images/vedio frm camera, get msg 'unable to save file' .
camera: dead pixels
in bright light conditions pict ar too good.
but in normal condition(indoor) red,blue n white spots are visible at fixed places on the screen (hence also in photos taken). ths are prominent in NIGHT MODE.
on covering the cam lens these spots are clearly seen on the black screen.with lens covered ,use full zoom, the screen is full with ths red n blue spots.
VEDIO REC :
when capturing untill last BIT of memory(*wit abv mem crd prob) , the vedio is not saved whn mem is full, i get the msg 'UNABLE TO SAVE FILE' and captured vedio is lost!!!
IS THS NORMAL WITH MEM CARD N CAMERA?
I bet this comments bellow are posted by some angry SE fans, which have heard the 6233 speakers on the phone of their's best friends and got totally freaked... Shame on your envy!
Well, for me, n6233 suits my needs, since most the games and some applications are already in .jar files. Sound is nice also, though like bit inferior with K800. Firmware that I have is v.4.91 and never experience poor reception nor restarts up till now. I just want to day also to those lousy people giving lousy comments, shut the f@@k up! - Mabuhay Philippines!!
Hey people with bad comments regarding reception and build quality. Try checking your network first before judging this phone. Sometimes, you always blame the phone if you cannot good reception. Such stu@@ity! Also, if you don't like the build quality and such that it doesn't have a front camera for video call, what the heck, GSM is still much better than 3G. It is still funny nowadays that you talking in front of your phone rather than place it beside your ear as normal calls can be done. If you don't like this phone, then go buy another one that suits your needs. Don't blame it to the phone that it cannot do what you need from them. Probably you're just st@@id enough just to buy this phone and expect it to function like an N70 or even a P990. Bakero!!
The 6233 is balls, by far one of the most over priced handsets on the irish market. It has an average camera & even with 3g turned off it has reception issues. Nokia in general are falling behind other brands. Also please note Mike has no willy!!! Sorry for my english... i'm IRISH!!!
hi to all 6233 users..
could anyone can tell ma how can i activate my PUSH TO TALK, MULTIMEDIA and EMAIL?????
pls... help me to activate my PUSH TO TALK, MULTIMEDIA and EMAIL..... god bless....
I have no problem with reception or other thinks..If u upgrade with the latest firmware, you will not have any problem with the phone. I have 2 GB memory card and I see no lag... Is the best phone I ever had (I had D900, D600, 6230i..etc.)
Sorry 4 my english..I'm foreign.
I read about 50 comments of this site and also checked almost all of the comments on mobile-phones-uk.org.uk. i'm not sure about buying 6233, cause it seems that it has some problems with reception, and it resets many times in a week. is the firmware updated? does it still has the problems? sorry for the language, i'm a foreigner.
Personally, i think phones with symbian os offer better features. And i think its easier to make application for symbian phones.
What's good about the 6233 is the price. Its like getting a symbian phone for less the price. That, I THINK, is what's making it the phone of choice.. well.. that's aside from its speakers. =p
> 6233 has video call function
> I have never had a problem with reception that i caused by the unit.
> I only turn on to 3G mode if i need to. Most of the time i'm on GSM mode.
Whenever you are gona post a phrase or words that was written or posted somewhere else, i suggest you "quote" them. Meaning, include the url or the name of the origin/author.

DeadPixels on 6233 says:
The 6233/6234 is a 3G phone designed with mass market appeal. It lacks a video calling function, which is a strange and surprising ommission in a 3G phone. Reception is not always that great - a common problem with 3G phones, but the 6233 seems particularly prone to this, which makes us suspect a hardware/firmware issue, and it's a phone that displays an annoying tendency to freeze, reset or randomly shut down. For these reasons,I cannot really recommend it.How many people sold their 6233?How mAny?
NOW COMPARE TO WHAT mobile-phones-uk.org.uk says in their review of 6233:

SO DEAD PIXELS of 6233 is just copying this critical review and paste it here. And in fact this is the most critical review of 6233 in the internet givin onli 3/5 stars.
The average user reviews in THE SAME SITE are giving 4/5 stars to nokia 6233!!!
So what do you think? Here is the link:
I think it is not correct to copy paste a review and than to lie it is your opinion. Well I can also copy paste several review which says how perfect is 6233 in terms of reception and software. It seems that all depends on your software version as SOME of the first 6233s has known firmware problems...
Fine fine..just say all you want.
6233 is not good nor bad.It is just my personal opinion about it and from others experience about the 6233.Hope this clears.
For the beginer "Dead Pixels on 6233":
6233 DOESN'T lack video call future. You can have a video call on this phone. The REAL MINUS is that it doesn't have the frontal camera..so the other person can see what the back camera see. GOT IT??
P.S. Sorry 4 my english..I'm foreign.
About 6233 it's a wonderful mob but should have flash option for photo so that photos are clear even in dark.
hi...i want to take a nokia 6233...she`s a good phone ?can help me someone?!!! thanks & sorry for my english...
