Hey Omegac - Good notes here!!
I've managed to get inbox on my "go to" button, and I currently am receiving my report deliveries ok - they seem to be working fine. Would this be a problem with network?? Funny thing is - I haven't got the voice mailbox option on my "go to" options - i've removed it and it has not reappeared...Strange that huh? Let's hope nokia comes out with an update soon then. Cheerio.
Hey Unnamed - a friend of mine has mini opera on his moby, 6233, and it seems to be a bit problematic. Somehow the built in browser seems to be dominant and wont budge in for others....
Ta for all
Has anyone here managed to get the phone working with opera mini on an Orange PAYG sim? The in built browser works fine, but opera doesn't connect.
This is a pretty buggy phone at the moment, compared to the rock solid 6230i
On my 6230 you could type a number in and go to options, which gave you the currency converter, in the 6233 you have to go to calculator
No option to set the Inbox as your up arrow option key
In a text message you can't edit a phone number in the address book before sending
Delivery reports are weird, timings are all over the place, sometimes several hours before the time of sending.
If I remove voicemail from the "go to" menu, switch the phone off and back on, it reappears....
Had 2 v 3.70 phones, and all the above are present in both.
Hello Friends! For the last 1 and half months I was reading views of 6131 users but here only I find that 6233 is also an option in comparison to 6131. And finally I hav to buy 6233 as it is a bit better than 6131 camera quality wise, 2 external speakers for gud sound quality 3 D sound effect, more battery life, easy maintenance, sturdy and 64 MB memory card included in sales package (India). These are the features which compelled me to buy 6233 instead of 6131, though a bit expensive than 6131 (Indian Rs 12000) and 6233 (Indian Rs 13800). These are Nokia priority dealer rates. Hope this will help others.
Thanks Roger put an Mp3 as my alarm tone it started off low then got louder and the network mode thing great too thanks again
Hey Raj, one more thing though - if you want to save battery - go to menu > settings > phone settings > network mode > change to gsm. This saved me a bit of juice. For some reason, when the phone is left on "dual mode" it drains my battery faster - maybe it keeps hunting for stronger network? don't know. But it helped.....Unless you need the dual mode option? Anyway - cheerio chief - rog.
Hi Raj, Ok, the vibrating thing is normal, this is nokia playing with us. I've searched the entire web for an answer and one couldn't be found. So, i guess we'll have to put up with it for now.
The network problem - The first time I switched the phone on, it tried to work on 3g. Then it went away, looking for a network. It managed to find orange after about 2 minutes. It is sluggish in getting locked onto a network, for some reason. Sometimes when i'm on the train coming home, it loses connection and even drops a call, and after a couple of mins ot finds orange and on it goes again. So, i think there is a slight, let's say, "problem" with the network sync on this phone, but nothing too major. However, if and when nokia releases an updated to the firmware, I think they'll try and review that little nag.
I did not need to restart my phone after losing connection - it came back on ok - just took a little while.
Anyway, keep an eye out - if it does loses connection too many times, then it would be an idea to get in touch with nokia and express our feelings. Maybe a whole bunch of us could do it at some time? That would make them rethink this, wouldnt it? cheerio, rog
Roger, Hi, ..just got my 6233, ..having a problem, ..it vibrates slightly each time i switch it on or switch it off. ..is there a problem with my phone, ..is it possible to deactivate this feature??
Also, I faced a network problem similar to you, ..the phone did not catch up on the network after coming out from a no-network zone. ..Tried manually searching the network, ..but didnt work, ..had to switch it of & on again to get back the network!
Sorry Dranz - typo there - guarantee should be the word.....not garantee....missing an U, but you got that anyway...Ta!! rog.
Hey Dranz - No probs with questions at all - keep them coming!
Ah, NO, the W810i is not as slow as the 6600. I had one for about 4 months, a long time ago, and that was a struggle! The W810i is definitely much better and much much quicker than that.
The battery on my brother's phone is lasting approx 2.5 days - but that's low usage on calls. He, however, uses a lot of gaming, a lot lot lot of MP3 playing and quite a bit of texting too. So i suppose for an average user, the battery should garantee you a couple of days' juice...no probs. Cheerio Dranz! rog.
Is it as slow as nokia 6600/7610?
also for the battery will it last for at least 2 days?
sorry for asking too many questions, you're the only one i can count on!
I'd give it a 8.5 - There's always room for improvement!
The version is 3.70 - I believe this is the only one out still.
Hey Dranz, The W810i is a good choice too. The menu is slow, but not that slooooow that you would fall asleep while typing a text message.... Oh, and the batteries are comparable to each other duration wise. Very good indeed.
Hey Dutch -You're right! I didn't see it because i removed my free memory card and inserted a new one I purchased - therefore missing the good freebies on the original card. Cheerio!!!! Roger
Hey surferguy - you've an email re. Mem card. Ta mate, roger.
Roger!! My man! haha! The size of my memory card is 64mb.. not a bad size. i would prefer bigger as i take alot of photo's!!! I think 30 quid is about 55-60 dollars aus.. anyway i might just take you up on that offer of you posting one out to me.. email me for more details :) Cheers P.S Rock on 6233!! love this phone!
Please can you evaluate this mobile of 10 ??
what's the last version number ??
does anyone know how to connect the phone to the computer? like a usb port? is the usb cable included?
No problem with the long response, you helped me a lot. thanks a bunch
anyway as for my decision, i think i'd pick w810i, i dont mind the slow menus, but when you mention slow, you dont mean THAT slow right?
And which battery will last longer?
On my 6233, the "wireless presenter" feature can be found on the 64mb memory card that came with the phone.
menu ==> applications ==> memory card ==> extra ==> predefcollection ==> presenter
I haven't tried it, but i understand that it's for powerpoint and other windows applications.
You need a blue tooth adapter on your PC / notebook, and you also have to install the Nokia Wireless Presenter PC component from the software disk that came with your phone.
I will try and help on a few points here. I am sure Surferguy and others here will also have a say to help out with your queries.
The body is mixed. the front is really solid and without creaks, the front outline is protected by a band of steel / chrome looking like material, very solid.
The back is a plastic leathery feel to touch, including the battery cover.
I haven't seen anything on the phone that presents itself as a wireless feature. Perhaps someone else has any ideas as to what this may be.
The feature you are talking about is called "Wallet". This phone was left out of this fine feature I am afraid.
The phone does not open word/excell files as it is not symbian - apparently only symbian operated phones actually provide that facility. I read somewhere that there is a software available that would enable you phone to perform such a task, however I have never tested/tried it at all.
The phone, when connected to a computer, appears as a phone, at least on my pc. You'll need the pc software package to enable it to see machine to machine.
Therefore you wouldn't be able to use your phone as an "external drive" as such.
I hope this has helped you. Apologies for not being able to answer all of your questions. Regards, roger
