Roger & Dutch,
Thanks for your detailed response. You guys are doing better than manufacturer in explaining the product & features.
Roger definetly deserves credit for all his effort in answering the queries.
It seems 6233 is competing with 810i. Any comments / comparison ?
Sorry for the late reply - YES, the MPŁ / Radio, when used in loudspeaker mode, are played using both sided speakers. Gets quite loud too - nice!
Some operations are still available when using MP3/Radio. However, I found out that if i want to check my emails - my MP3 stops working - then when emailing is done, the MP3 is back on. Same is with voice calls, obviously. But texting is fine, and so is updating phone book or looking at photos. Uploading your music onto the transflash card couldn't be easier - it's drag n' drop. This is how i do it, connected via a memory card reader / usb to laptop. I haven't had much play with connecting phone > pc yet, however i'm told this is also very simple to do.
I got something like that too - but mine's not too bad, i suppose.
(the flickering, i mean!)
How's things? My phone crashed on me, when i was playing a video I recorded at a park. The vid was 14.5mb in size and when i went to play it, the phone rebooted.
After that, it worked fine. Strange, no?
hey, based on this review and comments here, im seriously thinking of getting on of these baby's. can someone tell me though,m when listening to mp3/radio, can you still use the phone? like can you still send txt messages, update contacts e.t.c. or can u only do one at a time? also, wih putting the SD card into your pc or plugging into your u=USB port, can you just 'drag and drop' mp3's in or do you need to do it some special way?
Thanks Surferguy for your reply.
I hope my battery is getting better too.
About the flickering thing, hopefully Nokia could give solution to that in the future.
Hey Julianto. Yeah i have experianced this with my handset too... photo's taken during the day are fantastic.. however on night mode there is some flickering, which sucks but we can live with it.. as for the batt life, after 3 or so charges the life is great.. no complaints with this phone after 2 weeks of usage! long live nokia!
I've noticed that Roger has been helping us a lot with his kind replies. Thanks Roger!
Anyway, I have just bought Nokia 6233 last week and I like it very much. Simple, fast, and very convenient to use.
The only thing that made me worry was the battery life. However after reading most of Roger/ Surferguy replies, i am less concerned about it now. The battery life span is about 60 hours for my hp.
However, i do find that the quality of the photos taken during day time are much better than photos taken during night time. I also noticed the flickering motions on the screen during night time, and it get more obvious if the video function was activated.
Have any of you guys experienced this?
i compared 6280,3250 n 6233
comparing the 3G,2 MP cam,radio,music n video player,connection,sound,memory,and symbian/non, and almost similar in pricing.all around $350 in indon.
finally i choose 6233
the 2MP cam is terrible
swift system (i bet that its complicated 2 take a pic,i've try it)
2 MP cam gr8
cashing bad (easy to scratch)
sliding system not longger its getting broke
cant install aplication (limited)
2MP cam gr8
only one piece (nokia specialize in it)
cant instal aplication (limited,but better than 6280)
no cable data transfer in buying pack
the design r so-so
nokia is not good in sliding,swift,flip system,they r good in one piece,my friends has a problem w/ the sliding systen.the cable that connect key pad and screen are off cuz slide it often.symbian r not my priority anymore (coz,im looking 4 black list,bedd chat n games)
btw,anyone can tell me can i install black list in 6233?
From specifications: Nokia 6233 has more features than SE K610i (push to talk,FM radio,infra red and double speaker) while SE K610i has dual camera and more polyphonic.
For quality from camera and speaker (I'm sorry) we wait review from user that have used both of them.
If you need goed camera and music player, don't you want to see also walkman series from SE?
-media (music) 3250
-camera/video camera=same video=6233
-in general 3250 with symbian but no35 while 6233 s40 with 3g
decide urself which features u need most
This looks like BenQ-Siemens S88. Very unoriginal. And it's buggy too. Not good.
which one is better in terms in these points:
3250 or 6233???
pls compare, specially the music part...
In loudspeaker mode ,the mp3 files are heard throught to the both speakers???
where can we get themes for 6233?in my cell some iges don't work.does anyone know the reason for it?
Do you think that the W810i have an unlimited amount of messages stored in its inbox as long as we have sufficient space in our memory card?
Someone said that the 6233 can do that, so i might pick 6233 if Ericsson doesn't have that feature. Im a big messaging fan, and i hate to delete my messages...
Again, sorry to bother you
Im bought from Kuwait
i called the agency here in Kuwait they told me fir this soft ware ( 3.70 ) the sound dhould appear, but maybe for the coming versions they'll fix it.
Just thought of something - where did you get your phone from? sometimes dealers like vodafone/orange/O2 load up their own tampered with version of firmware. In this case, sometimes, it is better to have a wee look at your user manual, maybe they have moved or changed the way your menu is supposed to be working - give it a try. Sorry for not being able to be precise, but this is most unusual!
Hey Sama, no, my phone also sports firmware V3.70 - strange that.
On menu, can you find anything remotely close to settings for your media (like mp3 player, camera, radio, and so on?)
No there is nothing here called camera sound in camera's setting !
by the way my version is 3.70
maybe the version is different !
