to DiO: many thanks for the reply. I have tried adjusting the main ringer setting...it makes the ring-tone louder but the SMS alert is still quieter than heaven on a Saturday night (to coin a phrase) !
If only this was a symbian phone with a video conference camera, it would have been the ultimate King of all the Phones, I hope Nokia takes a note and comes up with a symbian version of this phone, of course the 2nd camera is essential if you have 3G.
no, doesnt come with usb data cable,.
hey, u sure? mine can, maybe u should have asked for assistance.
who said u can ff and rw videos in v 4.91 its wrong i have upgraded and it doesnt.
@rkhi: you can't set the sms tone sound level seperately, change the maing ringing sound level in tone settings, call and sms message receiving sound levels will change...
if your using the normal view(not the fullscreen, the left and right, if ur using the fullscreen, tilted to the left, the up and down buttons.
Can anybody help with this...I can't get the "message (sms/text) alert" sound to a loud enough level to be able to hear it when I receive a message. There is no option to adjust the level in "tone settings". Otherwise, seems a great phone. Any help/advice gratefully received.

YES i am sure. just go to a nokia care center. free if within the warranty period. but in philippines not. costs around 10 us dollars
r u sure that v4.91 can rewinding and fast forwarding the video? if it can plz know how u upgrade ur firmware. thanx
Once u upgrade to v4.91 rewinding and fasforwarding of vids is available. so dont blame Nokia or 6233, blame yourselves for not doing so.
hi ALL, after i upgraded the firmware of my phone to v4.91 all the problems (like restarting while playing music) was gone! i payed 10 bucks in the Nokia Svc Centre because warranty is already expired. it shouldve been free. im very happy with this phone now. to ALL, u wont regret buying this phone. mine is a silver one, its much nicer than the black because this one looks classy and professional. planning to buy 2GB of microSD card this month hopefully theres already available here in the Phils.
this phone rocks!
There's one thing missing on the SPECS page and that is the phone is capable of playing WMA files! Although it seems that it doesn't read WMA tags properly.
This can be used as a Mass Storage Device, and boy thank you Nokia for letting us do so. Also to anyone thinking between this and the 3250, go with the 3250 if you can't live without the S60 OS. Otherwise, you'd be better off spending the price difference on this plus a 2GB MicroSD and a 3.5mm audio adapter remote so you can use REAL ear/head phones.
Don't you guys forget, this also is only one of a few phones that can record video at 640 by 480 and has a resolution of 320 by 240, that has a price like it does right now.
The S40v3 series has got to be one of the fastest and easiest interfaces Nokia has launched. Quite a HUGE leap from 6230(i). It's pretty stable too. I have 4.52 as my firmware, and haven't had any restarts so far.
Another nice addition that I've recently noticed is that my Nokia 6233 can go up to 2-3 days now. The only time you'll really suck the battery dry is if you use the excellent speakers a lot. You can't fault the phone with the kind of power the speakers perform at.
I'm glad a lot of people are liking this phone. It's like a sleeper-hit. :)
Dear Nokia, This phone is an unattractive brick reminiscent of the old 3310. It is uncomfortable to hold with fiddly navigation and overcomplicated menu's. The best phone you ever made by a long stretch is still the 6230. Why have you stopped making it? The 6230i wasn't bad, apart from some software issues but still wasn't as good, and this 6233 seems to be even further away. I thought technology was supposed to improve things for the better? I will not be upgrading my phone with you this year. Sorry Nokia.
I jus got mine this week (monday) V4.91....and i can't complain. i jus love this phone (black). Speakers and video are awesome. I took a video at my work party last nite and everyone was amazed at the clarity of the video. My god i love this phone. Everything works fine no problems, no restarting. Gonna buy a 2GB card next week.
