I use a 1gb mem card on my phone, and I must say, this is actually better than the 64mb Nokia supplied me with. Very fast indeed. So no problems there.
1- No, the CD does not include wallpapers/themes as this cd is software for your pc only.
2- Notes....As much as the internal memory can acommodate, i suppose. I haven't got many, abotu 80, and i am still able to include more if i need. so I think it takes quite a few.
3- Sorry but I don't know about java, as i only use it very seldomly. I suppose it cannot be bigger than internal memory? Perhaps java appl are not that large anyway - not too sure.
4- Check out this site, this is where i got mine from - http://mobymemory.com/proddeta...SDSDQ%2D1024
1gb card is under 30 pounds sterling. This is in the UK.
Maybe you are right. I haven't tried bluetoothing in anything larger than the internal memory - But i have managed to send a 10mb file out the other day, to another phone, and it went fine.
No question here. I once had a K700i. The nokia 6233 is much better in all aspects, including the sound - MP3, rings, voice, etc.
Any luck with the text message setting?
To all users,
HAS anyone read/heard/seen/known about the new firmware out yet?? I've heard things, but nothing concrete and nowhere to check is accuracy. Anyone got any news??
Cheerio everyone, - Roger.
i have read so much about this phone but i want to know about voice quality of mp3 and fm radio comparing with SE W700i.
can anyone tell me which phone is best in mp3 listening.
Hi i got this fone a weak ago and i m gona fan of this fan every day passes. It has great display good camera memory card and lots of things to say.
But this techonology which amaze me is that if u try to transfer a file having size more then ur fone memory it directly copies to ur memory card, which is great advancement of new os. And this feature ius not mention in the review how the review the cell it questionable bcoz i feel that lot i=of things remain undiscover the reviews on gsmarena and also mobile-review sites
Hi, I'm thinking of buying this phone after I saw it last week. However, I've a few ques to ask.
1) Does the CD includes additional wallpapers and ringtones. Somehow, I felt that the polyphonic ringtones and sms tones are rather limited compare to SE and Samsung. I prefer polyphonic sounds rather than mp3 as my tones.
2) How many notes can this phone store?
3) Is there any limitation on the size of java application that the phone can take?
4) How much does a 512Mb Micro SD Card cost? If I buy this phone, I may want to expand its external memory.
I read in N73 forum that they use greater memory card and the HP become slower. Have you used greater memory card in your 6233?
Because I hear many times that Nokia has problem with that. Is that true?
I ever read that SE has no problem if you use greater memory card, I never read about motorola or samsung or any other.
this phone is great i have it but people say it looks ugly it doesnt in real ppl out there it better than the 6230i alot better
At the moment there is no program in which you would install on your computer so that you could do a firmware update. This is normally done by Nokia, or via one of the dealers. This is not expensive to do and normally gets done very quickly.
The latest firmware is V3.70 - This is the first and only one ou so far. I am sure Nokia will put another one out soon to cure simple little nags. But this has not been announced, as far as I know.
Ok, there are all memory cards, right?
MicroSD is the mini version of SD (secure digital)
MicroSD is what they ar calling the tiny mini secure digital. Other shops call it transflash.
MMC is multimedia card. Nokia 6230/6230i uses this type of memory.
Transflash - is the new mem card - used on nokia 6233. Very tiny, very similar to MicroSD.
Check out this website, in UK, you'll see what i mean: http://mobymemory.com/SanDisk_...ry_Cards.asp
Hey Osama Bin Laden,
What would you like me to do? Nokia decided that they will have different memory cards for different phones. If I worked for nokia, i'd make sure i'd sort it out and get them to stick with one card. But they seem to believe people like a change, and something new to go with their new gadget. Was this simple enough, mr Laden?
Not too sure what you mean...the transflash/MicroSD is really tiny, really really small, what can I say?
And everyone is calling MicroSD a Transflash and vice versa. This is not me making it up. Why would I spend time in front of this screen to say things i am not sure of??
Well, i looked into it a bit. Not much idea what this is, but have you actually got the settings in the right order? Try this:
go to menu > messaging > message settings > text messages > message centres > SIM message centre1 > save.
Obviously, you can create one (on the option below) then save that as your option for text messaging. My message centre number starts with +44... - So you'd have to know the exact number off of Vodafone.
Give it a try, if no good, then email and we look closer into it ok?
As i know 6233 is a 3G phone, so how exactly do you make a video call since there's no 'front camera lense'? does it play MPEG4/MP4 format video clips like SE or any other phones?
previously i had a nokia6630, on nokia's official website it mentioned that 6630 supports MPEG4, but it didn't instead it supports 3GPP with either H263 or MP4 codec, not entirely an MP4 format right?
Thanks, from Malaysia.
i read your answered and i got basic information about 6233 i have 2 questions to know 1. how can we upgrade its firmware ourself 2. what is the latest firmware of it.
plz reply in detail. THANKS
could u please explain me the following and put me away from my misery. im planning to buy the nokia 6233 but i need to know what the following means before i go ahead....
"miniSD, Micro SD, MMC, Transflash"
Can You Use Simple English. Your Word Complex Just Like Grandma Story. This Handphone Nokia 6233 Is Unique I Never Heard Nokia Use MicroSD As It Memory Card. Only MMC, MiniSD.
To Guru roger
The Transflash is, at the moment, stuck at 1GB. No roger It Call MicroSD Not Transflash. See Your Self At Memory Card (MicroSD) Not Transflash. To Roger You Need Glasess To See Memory Card.
I know i am an idiot and i will always be..
but i will give 1 spd.. i will try and try because i like PINK...--:)
Hey roger, bit of a hard one for you... Sometimes when i go to send a sms msg it tells me that i have no service number.. i put the number in (it adds it automaticly coz its vodafone msg centre) then a day or so later it asks me to put the msg centre number in again!! What up with that?? Is it the phone? Or my service provider?? Many thanks :)
I think Nokia meant to say the phone accepts up to 2GB mem card. The Transflash is, at the moment, stuck at 1GB. the 2GB is under development. Should be with us by Xmas!
I noticed that a lot of people got a phone from the bad batch. Your's must be one of them. I would suggest getting hold of Nokia, or Carphonewarehouse if you are in the UK, and get them to sort it out for you. Ultimately you can contact the provider that gave/sold you the phone and get them to fix it.
When you get yours back, would you mind telling us what firmware you got installed? That would enlighten our little minds as to what Nokia is playing at.
Hope you're all good!
has anyone had a problem with the battery charging? i bought my nokia 6233 last night, and the battery was hot to the touch. when i went to sleep, i charged the battery and this morning, the battery was full, but it was so hot i couldn't hold the phone in my hand. after 30 minutes of unplugging the charger, the battery was almost drained.
- : Card slot microSD (TransFlash), up to 2GB, 64 MB card included
MMMMMM ? What MicroSD 2GB You Must Be Dreaming. Their No Sell MicroSD 2GB In Market I Use Yahoo Google Zip No MicroSD 2GB.
I had the same problems wit my nokia 6233.
I bought it like 2 weeks ago and on day 3rd software problems started showing up.
It wouldn't get signal or it would reboot many times when i was exploring its menu and whenever i selected some mp3 for ringtone while customizing my profile it wouldn't play the one i selected but it would ring back nokia tune over and over
Another thing is that screensaver stopped working so i returned it back and its been a week and i'm still expecting for my 6233 to get fixed. they told me they will install a newer version of software and it will be good as new.. I dont know about that
thanks for that. I'm just sharing what i'm learning with this phone - it' cool to be able to help out. Who knows, maybe tomorrow it'll be me asking all the questions here...knowing my luck, I'll be here asking questions in no time!
Anyway, as i previously mentioned, i had a W810i for a couple of months. Then i gave that to my brother and bought myself the 6233. I had quite a good time with w810i, and loved every aspect of it, the only thing that nagged at me all the time was the speed of the menu interface. Other than that, everything was as cool as a cucumber!
The 6233 is better than the w810i in many aspects, for me anyway. However, the camera on w810i has flash and autofocus - something i miss out on by having a nokia 6233.
Also, the nokia is great for normal texting. I could nover get used to having the space bar on w810i located where the # (hash) button is. On the nokias, it is on the 0 (zero) button, which makes for a faster text message keying. Maybe this is just me, but i used to get annoyed because of that. Silly though, isn't it?
However, it is the little things that make or break a passion for a phone, wouldn't you all agree?
If a certain phone has something another hasn't, then that enough for us to look further into it; whether or not we need the so called "extra feature" - know what i mean???
My nokia 6233 is not perfect. It sometimes loses connection, then finds it again - network problem??? I don't know.
My 6233 rebooted itself a couple of times when playing a video or mp3. Firmware bugs or just me being too quick at the menu? i don't know.
More and more people are having the 6233 and it is inevitable, we are gonna see loads and loads of unhappy owners here. People are gonna slag off this little diamond. Some others are gonna trust their whole bank accounts on its success.
I believe the sony ericsson w810i is a great contender. These are great phones. However, it is pretty much what we are more used to, than just what they offer. I am a big fan of nokia series 40 menu; i don;t thnk i could live with a smartphone. I once had a orange SPV 5000 phone, Windows powered. Perfect, i thought, I can sync my music with this little beauty in a few clicks. But i hated the sluggish menu, and the ever so boring "windows" way of existing.
The more natural, simpler menu that Nokia offers is just what i look for in a phone.
This little beauty, my 6233, is just what i need for now. Loads of us are falling in love with it. I think that after a firmware update, the other phone will have a long way to reach its position in the sales rank..
Anyway lads, the w810i is great....but I'm such a nokia lad i couldn't begin to think having to "learn" another phone.
I hope this helps, a little, at least.
Have a good time lads!
