>>> Well.. unlike you 2, I upgraded to 6233 from W810i
Upgrade? i dont think so... here in the Phils. SE w810i costs P15K while 6233 is P12K, both brand new. And one thing, the price of 6233 drops faster than than w810i.
tsk.tsk... you did a downgrade :-) peace
even if you upgrade to v4.52, which i believe is the latest as of now. That ringing/message tone problem will not be fixed, just dont set the tone to max. Or better just trade to a diff model if that tone prob annoys you :-)
well i have this mobile black colour (very graceful in this colour)for the past one month and it is really good no problems yet with software or funstions. sound quality is very goood gives sensational feeling when ever is put on the stereo speakers people near by do get amazed with muzic quality. one more thing the data trasfer through bluetooth or other sources is directly to card memory no restriction of 6 mb internal memory thats great. i uploaded 11mb of video from friends SE750 and no problems. its look is very very stylish specially black one.
I've had the phone for a few days now and really like it alot. Very nice to use and well made for a change. Only problem I have is the sms alert. When I preview the alert it's quite loud but when I receive a sms it's that quite that I can't hear it go off if it's in my pocket. Firmware version 3.70. Does the newer firmware fix this problem?
I bought Nokia 6233 5 days ago and ia still having problem the ringing tone when i make call is not loud and when someone answer my call his voice is also not loud. I have set up the volume to the max (10) but the problem is still there,
>> It's just a small number of faulty handset
Afraid not. None of the v3.70 can edit contacts before sending sms, can set the up arrow shortcut to inbox, can use currency converter from the home screen, can have the 6233 guess words like the 6230i, video calls contacts randomly instead of voicecalls, voicemail icons re-appears randomly in shortcut list.
I've had two, branded and un-branded, and both did all the above.
810 works faultlessly, is rock solid, and if there is any updates, I can do it OTA via the web from my home Pc :)
hey try changin ur theme on da fne it can make a difference to the firmaware. my music player doesnt shut dwn and my blutooth wrks fine.
Well.. unlike you 2, I upgraded to 6233 from W810i. Everything from the bigger screen, external speaker, price and cheaper memory card is beats SE's model. It's just a small number of faulty handset that's meddling, otherwise my 1 month old 6233 still work like a dream.
Had this phone, after less than a month, no signal!!! Phone repaired by nokia care phils, broken ic-crystal, they say. Lucky for me, warranty of 1 year. Updated version to 4.52. But still, when ringtone set to loudest, actual ring when called is rather soft for a few seconds then becomes louder. Very annoying, bug was not fixed. Try it with your units.
Decided to trade the fone before the value gets too low!!! Got the se w810i, which i am happy so far.
Btw, i noticed that nokia service center, packed with people having their fones repaired. Wat happened to nokia reliability, heared that its worse with the N series.
I'm back! Got my phone today from Carphonewarehouse. Surprise surprise - Nokia could not fix the bugs.
They claim to have reloaded the v3.70 firmware but it did no good - so they supplied me with a brand new phone, free of charge, of course.
HOWEVER, this one still sports the V3.70 firmware, and not the new one some of you seem to have.
Nevertheless, this is slightly better than my other 6233. The sound/voice output is louder, and it has kept the network in check, not dropping it like it was before. Also, It has not restarted itself at all yet. Bear in mind though, i've onl had it for 6 hours.
I am gonna play with it this weekend and see how it performs - I'll come back on monday with more insights of this new phone.
I wonder though, what is nokia gonna do with my old one, which was brand new anyway? Probably box it up and sell it on...hehe, mad people!
Take care for now,
still no problems with this little belter of a phone, i'm honestly amazed that nokia have now developed a phone that feels sturdy unlike those stupid interchangable cover versions. no software issue's what so ever with the 04.52v firmware
I truly love this phone! The calender is damn useful,i can like place a note under those notes and the notes can be seen below the calender box.. weee nice phone.. The quality of the sound is terrific! Crystal clear n much more louder than N series!
i think this is a best choice.it is very good and clever and simple.a moblie with every thing that you want to do with. waoooooooo
I am planning to buy this mobile ...
Can anyone tell me about the clarity of MP3 and battery backup.......
Waiting 4 ur reply.....
how many text messages can be stored in the inbox?
is there any option to store the messages on the memory card?
do the earphones produce a good sound quality?
thanks in advance
I just got this as an upgrade from a 6680. What a great phone this is. A lot smaller than my 6680 yet it can do the same thing. Although it does not have a front camera I didnt use the one on the 6680 anyway so it doesnt matter!
Carphonewarehouse's performance is out of this world. Apparently my phone is ready (has been for 2 days) and when I phoned today they said they were "about to call me" - yeah yeah. Anyway, I'll have it tomorrow and shall be able to let you all know if I got the new firmware installed + any other improvements...(if any)
