As a music solution this handset is very acceptable, however it is weaker than Walkman-solutions in terms of interface convenience, detailed adjustments, but in terms of sound quality it is on their level, and when we’re speaking about loudspeaker mode – it has no competitors on the market at all (stereo speakers play their role in that). - MOBILE-REVIEW.COM
I love it. I got the silver one through O2 and was worried it wouldn't look as good as the black or white versions, but it looks very classy, feels solid, and is as fast at everything as the 6230i was (after having a series 60 phone for a short time, series 40 rocks).
My only issue is with Nokia PC suite. I can't get it to work at all. I can use the phone in data storage mode no problems to move data around, but every time I try to backup the phone I get an error. This always happened with the 6230, too, though, so I may have a dodgy cable. I'll try the bluetooth.
Does the movie player play mpeg2? I haven't found any that will play on it. Do they need to be the right resolution?
I got a 1 gig card, and have no problems with speed of data access etc.
I bought this phone and the screen has a burnt pixel. Nokia wont repair it cause they suppose that a screen must have 3 burnt pixels to be replaced. This is very irritating. Apart from that it is a very good phone
Probably you have to change your sms center number (or something similar). You can do it in messages setting. Good luck.
I really need help if anyone knows the answer.
I just bought this phone from France and I am using it in the US with T-mobil as my sevice provider. For some reason I cannot send text messages, I can recieve and send multi media messages but not text messages. Please help with any suggestions.

Thanks everyone for all the helpful info.
Could anyone andwer the following:
1. Can this phone be set to automatically answer itself with the earphones in (like my old 6610)? I.e., ringing in the earphones then the phone answers itself without me having to press any buttons whatsoever.
2. How is the MP3/music organised? Can you view and play music by album, artist, playlist etc?
Many thanks, Tangoman.

Tim, there are a few of here with v4.52 firmware, so v3.70 is not the latest. I have v4.52 and am in Australia, but am not with "3". I bought the phone in early August from Optus.
mobileguru, my D-pad is not creaky, but it does satisfy my aesthetics.
I have been using this phone for 2 weeks and quite satisfied with its overall functions. My only complaint is about its D-Pad, which does not seem to work well when pressed upwards. Plus it is creaky and does not satisfy your aesthetics. Please tell me if I am the only one having this problem or any of you guys have also experienced this problem with the D-Pad. Thanks
Its a very good fone. I love it.
A few questions friends, if you can answer them;
Will the 1Gb micro sd card slow down the fone or create any other problems? I am using the 64mb one provided with the fone. So deciding whether to buy 1Gb card or 512mb.
My 6233 tends to heat up a bit while playing around/ scanning around with the fone. Any other 6233 users having the same prob? .
thank you in advance
Firstly, thanx to this site for helping me in deciding to get a Nokia 6233 for myself.
The 6233 is a very nice piece. I love it. Its got a lovely soft feel to it. Wish it had a flash for the camera.
One thing thats bothering me is that with about 15 mins of playing around with the fone, it tends to heat up a bit. Do any of the other users experience such a prob? What could be the reason?
Will a conectivity cable CA 42 work?
One IMPORTANT Suggestion from U guys\gals:
Do I get a 1 GB micro SD or 512mb for my 6233? The only thing is that the fone should not have any problems or become too slow.
Pls post ur experiences friends
Thanks in advance.
BTW The fone does have a Calculator, check the ORGANISER in the Menu.
Can I record video in megapixel mode? pls. answer honestly....
I really want to find out..pls??
Thought I would answer some of the questions asked throughout this forum. The Nokia 6233 has a hot-swappable MICRO SD card slot located on the side of the phone. I have a 1GB card and I have setup the phone to store all media directly to the card. The difference between a micro and mini SD card is that the micro is smaller - the micro was designed specifically for mobile devices. You can only use the micro SD card in the phone.
The available options for the camera are as follows:
Image Quality (High, Normal and Basic)
Image Size (5 sizes: 160x120 to 1600x1200)
Video Quality (High, Normal and Basic)
Video Res (4 sizes: 128x96 to 640x480)
You can record video directly to your Micro SD card so with 1GB you could record for a while!
You should be able to find a calc application for your phone on the internet and use a connectivity cable and Nokia pc suite to install it.
As far as I’m aware there has not been an update of the firmware. The latest version being 3.70 (RM-145) - to find out what version you have enter *#0000# into your phone. I have heard of people getting firmware version 4.52 but I was unable to confirm - it may just be a specific firmware for the 3 mobile carrier in Australia?
You can not fast forward or rewind during play of video clips.
