Hi nokia 6233, I too have encounter the restart problem twice..1st after playing the Rally game / 2nd when playing MP3 thru speaker. Somedays back, someone mentioned this may due to RAM problem & I assume it is.
To omegac: Thnx for reply (for rest as well) but what did u meant with K00i??
Random dude...I have heard that the SE K800 can hold over 1000 sms.
I have one, but don't have that many SMS on it (thankfully!)
Can anyone recommend any good smartphones out there? any brands will do.
i heard that only smartphones can hold more than 1000 sms's, im in dire need of that kind of phone
and i wanna know if this phone nokia 6233 can hold more than 1000 sms's?
Bought one impressed by the features upon charging the batteries the phone got extremely hot so much so the scratch guards on the lens & screens wrinkeled & came off have since retuned to the dealer. who debited me Indian Rs.2500 (approx USD 50)
But you must know first how is the performance between 2 models. If they are similar than:
I think if you need smartphone than choose E50 but if you don't need that than choose 6233.
I bought it from the Singapore market to use it in the US and have been very disappointed. I was waiting for this phone ever since I saw the spec and was very excited when I first saw it. I just love the phone and the features and the screen but the reception sucks and thats mainly because Cingular uses 1900 band only as a backup and T-mobile coverage sucks in general. I have changed service providers(from Cingular to T-mobile) to just keep this phone but ultimateley decided to ditch it because of the coverage. I wish this phone had the 850 band. Why does Nokia ignore the US market for these phones??
Andrew....If this is a big purchase for you, I would seriously consider the SE K00i, Nokia have really let us down with this one, we are beta testing it for them...Really disappointed in what must be my tenth Nokia in as many years.
A great dilemma, donno for what to go, either for Nokia 6233 or Nokia E50! Features ar similar (camera I dont care), + for E50 - it reads MS Office docs and has PDF suport and price for it here in Latvia is the same as for 6233!
What to do?
P.S. Not going to buy a cell so soon, had an unexpected pay-out! Just want to hear your opinions!
Thnx in advance! ;)
bought dis fne 2day. tranfered video but whn i played it it restarts any answers plzz??
Hey Mr wongso,
Yeah, if you can get the phone with an extended 128mb memory card for free, then go for it, it certainly helps having a little more mem space for your loved pics and mp3 / vids. Have you familiarised yourself with the features of this phone yet? Have a read at our endless posting here, loads of people have shared loads of info here and it is certainly useful to be armed with info before making your decision.
I now have just under 200 texts. So for all your people that asked me before, Yes, you can store more than 100 texts in your inbox/sent items simultaneously.
guys, i have a plan to buy this phone, cause in Jakarta, u can get mms 128 for free (not 64mb), i need a sugestion for u folks, thanks.
The phone itself, having just 6mb internal memory, cannot hold much - about 2-3 songs...?!
The phone is supplied with a 64mb card, thus making it a far better option for storing music.
However, memory cards are extremelly cheap, some going for under 30 british pounds for a 1gb card. This card will let you have about 6-8 complete albuns, and still have a little left over for pics you might want to take.

Apparently they also deliver internationally!!
Sorry for missing your entry here. Apologies.
Anyway, here we go:
If you meant like a shortcut to a single picture, I don't think you can. What can be done is, once you're on your card, go to pictures > options> type of view > grid. This facilitates the viewing process. However this changes the way you see the entire menu of pics/vids in your mem card. Give it a try, you'll see what i mean. It makes for a faster scrolling though, that is certain!
About US, yeah, you'll need a different charger there, but if you can, pop in to a shop in your local area and look for a US adapter. If not, you can easily get them at the airport foyer.
The 6233 is triband, so it'll deifinitely work on american soil. However, keep an eye out for roaming charges. I know they cost a blooming fortune, i've been down that road. Depending on how long you're staying over, it would pay you to get yourself a pay-as-you-go sim card overthere (vodafone or whatever) so that you can make local calls and receive international one without paying through the nose for it. Know what i mean? In the UK, when travelling abroad, we even pay to receive voice calls/text messages!! It's extortionate but this is how they make money. Have a think about it and study your options well before making a decision. If you decide to go with your own sim card, from your home nation, then speak to your service provider so that they can lift the roaming bar for you, thus enabling you to make/receive calls.
Hope this helps you.
Take a look at this site, may help you a little too - http://www.t-mobile.com/shop/p...ancategory=4
Can you provide me with some help on my previous posts..
does anyone know how many songs the 6233 can hold ?? can you let me know asap please
I've called Nokia (0845 045 5555) and they have sent me to a Nokia shops (carphonewarehouse) to check out my phone. The problems are - calls dropped, slow to pick up a network, and very low volume when on a call. Sometimes I can barely hear the caller. This is not all the time, but definitely something irritating me now.
Anyway, i shall be taking my phone in this weekend. I'll let you know when it comes back and see what happens. Nokia says hey have no idea when a firmware will be out. Goblers.
I reckon you got a nice site from Surferguy - cheers!
Yeah, removing the card resets profiles? Strange, i haven't had that - there must be a little bug with your set. Have you had time to check it out, like, send it off to Nokia?
Yeah, the concrete thing was nothing. I am gonna be adding my thoughts on the latest prob with the phone below.
The mp3 mms thing - that's weird too, i tried sending something the other day - and i could only send it bia bluetooth - Maybe mms isn't that developed to accept a large mms file through the network yet? Very weird indeed.
Hey Original Jamaican lad!
Well, my phone is always on while on charge - it takes about an hour and 10 mins. The charger output is 5V. To be honest i hadn't noticed it took so little time to do it. I am gonna charge it turned off next time and will let you know, all right? Cheerio.
RIGHT THEN, everyone.
Ya'll know I have nothing but praised this phone. People ask me for suggestions, and I always say...Go for the 6233.
Well, not any more.
Yesterday - I'm on the train. The reception bar slowly goes down from 4, to 3, to 2, then I get cut off. I'm still showing 1 bar.
I'm looking at the phone waiting for my caller to call again. All I get is a text from Orange "you have a miss call, this person called but left no message, time 22:00". Ok, I thought.
The train moves along. I get another bar - up to 2 now!
I am looking at my phone. It screams again, text! Same message from orange - but 2 bars? It did not ring, how come I got a miss call???
Anyway, 3 bars and I am laughing. My caller gets through. I asked what he was getting, he said "straight to your voice mail". WHAT? I'm looking at the phone! It did not ring! Why voicemail, then message of missed call?
I called orange. They can't help. Call nokia? What are they gonna say?
This is absolutely not good. I say, I love this phone, but if nokia does not sort out the network issue soon, I'll be moving on to another phone. That's definite.
Remember in the beginning, when people were complaining of weak network reception? I thought that had all stopped, probably as the phone is so good, maybe it was just a phase...I don't know. It is not good, is it? I love every bit of it, MP3 player, Radio, Camera, etc - but a phone is a phone and is there for phone calls, huh?
Anyway, I'm gonna be looking very closely at my phone, if it behaves badly in any way, it'll be forced to take a long long walk.
Hope this helps you guys. Let's get nokia to sort out this issues!!
Ta for all
