Yo roger!! Memba that problem i had with the msg settings?? Well its still happening... Still asks me to verify a msg centre no after every 10 sms's or so i send?? Maybe i should take back to supplier and get a new one?? What u think?? Thanks mate!!
I have a 6233 for more than 2 weeks now.
This phone has a serious problem of rebooting. It reboots itself frequently.
You cannot transfer yr phone book to the memory card. the phone book can take only 500 Nos.
Further with an bluetooth it dials itself to random nos. as all the nos. have a voice tag.
Looks like my earlier 7250i was better.
6233 has good looks and a good screen. But if it does not function as required what's the use. Looks like i have got stuck with this instrument. Nokia Care centres in Mumbai cannot rectify the problem as the set is new & they do not have the softwares.
i'm thinking of buying between, 6233, 6630 and n70. i've heard that 6630 is the best of them all aside that it's the cheapest of the three. 6233 is it a 3G phone? can i see whom i speaking with when the other line is using a cp with a dual cam? i've also red in reviews here that 6630's cam is better than n70, how is that? pls help me..thanks
Everything is okay..has problem with Music Player mostly, first of all if played on loud speaker and still in the music player mode and not wallpaper mode, it will shut off randomly and restart in random amounts of time. If using wallpaper it takes longer for it to reboot. Does not normally reboot if headset is used. Im guess it has something to do with the internal Ram running out? or some sort of battery safety? because it does the reboot much sooner at low battery (1 bar)
Any updates yet?
Purchased 3 weeks ago, I love it to peices!!! Screen is amazing like all S40v3 Phones and Pretty much what you see on the viewfinder is what you record! Sound Qual. via Speakers Lovely. Transfer Rates from my v2 Bluetooth Dongle so much faster than v1. Java games addictive, cant get enough of spiderman! Lastly im not a fan of chrome but that chrome metal strip around the phone is sex, the phone feels so solid! all thats missing is Wifi and for those 2gig sd cards to become avaliable. A+
I have a usb cable does any1 know how to transfer videos 2 this phone pc suite doesnt seem to be able to do it and adobe wont let me any sugesstions?
Just bought the 6233 and put an Ultra II scan microSD 1gb. It is absolutely fantastic and quick. The video and photos are remarkable when stored in the memory card. Try this memory card. It is worth the money buying for.

Is this happening to anyone else?
AVI - Yes, this is normal..
Friends, we need someone like Roger, who will share his objective personally experience.
To another who don't agree with his review, please, we must give respect each other.
The moment you change the theme the ring tone and the message alert tone reverts back to the nokia tune and the standard alert.

Is this happening to anyone else?
From K750 to 6233:
3G,EDGE,stereospeaker and PTT.
I don't know:
Quality of music via headset (I mean K750 with megabass) and battery life?
For those concerned about network branded or sim free phones, both my T-Mobile PAYG 6233 and the sim free one I returned previously, have the same problems. So it seems to be a Nokia problem, not a network branding issue.
Spoke to a couple of service centres, and no software updates as yet, v 3.70 is still the latest.
Been using this fone for almost a month, sold my N70 for this as I need a weekend phone, got a O2 mini for work. Overall, no regrets considered one of the best fone in terms of looks, size, function. Only one thing bothering me, can anyone teach me to create a playlist for mp3 player function??
The easiest way to transfer photos to your pc is via a card reader. This is quicker and so much better. The USB lead does not come included, and would cause a lot of aggravation anyway. You can get a USB lead on ebay or other shops, I think even Nokia has it too. I much prefer a good old card reader, so much quicker.
Thanks a ton Roger, the reset of the phone seems to have solved the sleep and power mode issues.
Cheers...will keep troubling you... ;-))
Does this phone come with a USB lead or hw do you transfer photos on to your pc ?
THe sony ericsson k750 comes with a USB lead, and that was the phone i had, but thinking on upgrading to this one.
thanks for your input...no, 10-20 emails is not gonna make me change my mind. Let them play, I just read it and bin it. The rant was a bit over the top, sorry for using this space for that.
Apologies all round. Ta ta and have a great weekend.
I hope that rude email incident is not gonna change your helping attitude? That would be a huge lost for us. I maybe stay quiet but read all your words. Peace
No, unfortunately this phone does not support such applications.
first, yes, you can, provided that you have the right software to convert the dvd into mpg4, then a massive massive memory card. A normal DVD can take up to 4.75GB of space.
Second, Push to talk - PTT, this is similar to the old Walkie Talkie, but on nokias this has to be set up in a way that you use it to speak to people, using the network. Basically, you call your provider, ask to set up PTT, then add your contacts. If you want to talk to someone, press that PTT button and voila! However, some companies are giving minutes inclusive on price plans, some charge per call. It is useful in a building site, i suppose.
The PTT button on the nokia 6233 cannot be set to work on anything else. So if you dont use PTT, that button is of no use to you in any way. Waste of space.
Bass is quite good, but there is no allowed setting on the player mode settings options. Just Normal, Pop, Rock, Jazz, Classical and Set 1 and Set 2. I presume you can set the latter 2 as you wish.
The battery glitch is normal. This happens on the first/second attemps, perfectly ok. mine did the same, and now is as good as gold.
The image as Wallpaper. This should not affect anything on your sleep mode / power save mode. Try removing the image, setting up your sleep/power save modes, then adding the image on again.
Also, if this fails, a nice little resert of the phone is always welcomed. This helped me get rid of some annoying things, all is fine now. Give it a try, if not, let us know and we check it out again ok?
This is something new. Have you tried resetting your phone? Maybe that'll help. sorry I can't be more specific.
I'm in the UK, so not very clued up on issues with network receptions in US. However, this phone is triband, accepting automatically any network in 3-4 continents. There should be no reason why you cannot get this phone to perform well using cingular. I would suggest popping into a shop/dealer and having it investigated further? Sorry I cannot be of further assistance.
To the emailer
Thanks for your rude email.
i do not work for Nokia, and I am not a samaritan. This junk about me trying to look good on GSM is also all garbage. If i wanted people to praise me, I'd put myself up to new challenges. This GSM arena thing is something very useful to me and to many others. In the past, i made a decision to buy a phone using information found here, posted by people like the ones that are asking questions today. I am not a guru that knows it all. I have this 6233 and happen to play with it a lot and investigate its little issues. Then i can share that with other people that may or may not decide to purchase it. This has no bearing on what nokia / gsm sells.
I am in no way gaining anything out of it, other than satisfaction, for being able to help out now. I was helped in the past with other phones' issues and this time is my turn to return the favour.
If this looks like something out of ordinary to you, then I should remind you that no human was born super intelligent, everyone has a little learning curve. Everyone needs assistance, and everyone is capable of being nice to one another. Even yourself. Give it a try, it is a real buzz. Get help for things you need, then help your neighbour when he/she needs it. Nothing wrong with that, is there?
Hope you are well, sorry for the rant above, had to get it out of my chest.
