When i see this phone, i found that this phone got 2 speaker! Because i love to listen mp3!Wow...the sound is very good, and the phone very solid! I must get it Nokia 6233!
i bought this phone last week, it very friendly user and got many futures. The video camera is very outstanding.. i like it..
Hey Roger, thanks for the helpful hint!! Much appreciated. But i think i will stick to having no screen saver as my battery life is not the best atm. Do u know if it gets better over time, like after a few charges or something? Ta!
This is my 3rd nokia phone (after 6280 and n70) that tells my "sim card rejected" from time to time. I have to turn off the phone every time it does that. Somebody tell me, is this a problem of soft? From Romania - RESPECT!!
will someone please clarify whether this phone has been withdrawn from the market by nokia ??????????????????????????
Hey guys. Got this phone a couple of weeks ago. Everything is brilliant. All nice and good. I also got a 1gb mem card for it (cheap on mobymemory) - loaded it up with 900mb of songs, and 100mb free for pics. Phones does not crash, and works perfectly well with it. Also, i had a few problems when the phone was out of range, not picking up network, (i'm on orange) then it'd find it only to restart on its own. It has not done so for over a week now. It only happened a couple of times, i guess it was some sort of network issue? I've also turned off the UMTS option to 1800/1900 network only, and this seems to be saving me battery. Currently i am charging my phone every 3 days, having used it for about 3 hours of calls, games, browsing and quite a bit of music playing. I think this is ok. Not too bad, i only hope it stays like this! cheerio lads and lasses, rog.
Hey Surferguy, This is because you've got your phone set to powersave. Go to seetings > display settings > power save > off. Then back to display settings > sleep mode > off. That should do it. However, this will drain your battery slightly quicker....one of the downsides of this feature. Cheerio!!!! roger
hey, just got my 6233. So far fantastic phone!! But have one prob.. I have set the screensaver to digital clock. the screensaver works for like 5 min then its just a blank screen?? does anyone know the cause of this problem or how to fix it??
I've been using the 6233 for a week now and it's a lot like my old 6230i but loaded with many extras.
The 6233 is small compared to many other 3G phones, very comfortable in the hand and easy-to-use.
Compared to the 6230i, the 6233 has a design that is more robust. It also provides faster access to the menus, has better camera and video functions and comes with a set of nice speakers.
Setting up Nokia's PC Suite with infrared and bluetooth connectivity was a breeze. Similarly, the free blue tooth headset that came with the phone was also easy to setup.
I have, however, spotted a few things that in my opinion could have been better: -
1. battery life - This is (at best) average. I need to charge the phone every 2 to 2.5 days depending on usage (even though the phone's power saver and sleep modes are on).
2. font size - The "large" font is very small compared to the "large" font in the 6230i.
3. Headphone sound - This is a lot softer compared to the 6230i. I need to set it to level 7 or 8 compared to 5 previously to achieve the same loudness.
4. Standard SMS alert - While still audible, it is a lot softer than the 6230i's alert (perhaps too soft).
5. Ring tone level - Ring tone level 4 is too soft, while level 5 is very loud. This should be more balanced.
WILL SOMEONE PLEASE CLARIFY WHETHER THIS PHONE HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN FROM THE MARKET BY NOKIA ??? as stated in this comment( I HAVE COPY PASTED IT HERE FROM -- EmailMark 2006-07-17 10:29 nEG5 )
---- Have had this on T-Mobile for 2 weeks but the software has crashed and it wont dial out. T-Mobile were going to courier an exchange to me but i got a phone call this morning saying they could not now do so. The reason being that Nokia have recalled the phone due to the number of complaints and faults on the phone. This is a shame as it is a nice phone. Best avoid though until Nokia sort it out.
at first when it came out i thought that this phone looks awful but since i was on a budget and needed a phone quick i got it and GLAD to say it is really reliable. the pictures are quite hazy when you download it to the lap top although its a 2MP phone and of cuz there is no camera in the front for video calls. other than that, its sturdy! its really well designed and not so plastic like some other nokia models (6280) the key pad is easy to use and the mini sd card can be upgraded to a 1mb. so if u were on a tight budget n need a good 3g nokia phone, this is it! can get you by.. and oh yeah i got a free blue tooth headset along with it for the price i paid... its a steal! thanks nokia!
The phone looks ugly in pics but in realty looks v nice, any1 know how to stop this phone vibrating when i turn it on and off it`s sooooo annoying.
hey guys i wanna ask some questions about this phone.
1. which screen is bigger? nokia 6233 or nokia 6280? it seems that nokia6280 has a bigger screen. i saw nokia 6233's screen and i think its not that big like 6280.
2. how can i transfer large files like 20mb into my phone. i want to send movies from my friend's phone, and i was thinking of my phone's internal memory which is only 6mb. im having doubt to send it because it might crash. can i send this 20mb file to my phone? thanks.
Bought this one from OPTUS (Australia) last week. It is OK phone but be aware - although purchased through OPTUS in OPTUS store, no live TV via 3G. Supposingly OPTUS is working on it but so far no luck - "Your phone does not support live TV" message when you try. Sucks. Also, I went to check the 6234 in Vodafone store and it is about 3mm thinner, I thought they were supposed to be the same.
There is a website that contain pictures from a review signed by gsmarena but on a different website...!How come?
being a big Nokia fan, I must say that I am blown away with the features, battery time and call quality also the loudspeaker is excellent, having just upgraded from a nokia N70 its all good news and views.
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??
Before considering any remarks make sure it's first verify. Nokia's new series 40 OS unlike the older ones found in phone like 6230, 6230i or even symbian ones like 6600, 7610 or N70 is able to utilise external memory (memory card) completely!
Meaning it actually blends in with the internal mamory in such a way that incoming files if it's larger than what internal memory can accept will be saved at memory card instead.
That's what i do when transfering my converted mpeg4 anime video inside phone via bluetooth. Mind you, file size is about 40mb.
Reason, too lazy to take out memory card..
Who cares even if other brands have larger internal memory!
Take for instant motorola, it has bigger internal memory, expandable too.. but if you want to use any mp3 as ringtones, you have to save it into internal memory lamb!
Sony ericsson w800i, try accessing folders with loads of pictures or had too many contacts and your phone will lag like nobody business..
Samsung's latest P750 3.2 megapixel phone.. Big deal, my friend's phone can't even access external momory most of the time even when the icon (that shows external memory is inserted) is there.
No phone is perfect, but when it comes to having a daily practical phone that visually had everything with:
Stable software - The usual speedy, user friendly software! (notice so far no one complain much on 6233 compared to previous or even other latest nokia phones..)
Music and video (try total video converter, videos converted to mpeg4 is sharper than even symbian's smart movie with loud and clear sound)
Fantastic external speaker (so far the phone with such good external speaker is none other than w550i ONLY)
Unrivaled built - Made of high quality stainless steel. Unless you're talking about 8800.. if not this phone's built is so far the best in nokia's history.
Quality screen - Right size with ability to change font size in message, contacts and web browsing.
Good battery life - Hey, it's using 9300i's battery, what do you expect!!
Comfortable button.. responsive and good feel.
3G's Video calls available - Finally i got something that i can see the caller but he can't see me.. quite fun. Though you can occasionally face to back camera to allow caller to see you. Cute :-)
Last but not least, the right dimension - Not too big or small.. perfect for young executives..
No phone is perfect but being a tech geek, personally, this is the best among so many phones changed these 2 years.
