6233 is supposed to be part of the nokia classic series - i heard - thats why it looks a bit more retro than usual. But on the whole its quite packed with features etc.
I don't mind 'DISAPPOINTED' posting his dislike about the 500 contact storage in the 6233. When I heard of the 6280's ability to only store 500 contacts, seeing that it uses the same OS (s40 v3), I said to myself that if the 6233 comes with the same 500 contacts limit I wouldn't be getting it. I currently own a 6230 and it stores 1,000 contact so why should I upgrade to a downgrade, if you know what I mean. The fact that 6233 is a update to 6230 & 6230i then it should follow the trend of having a capacity of 1,000 contacts. Nokia should have went head over heels and upgraded it to 2,000 contacts if you ask me seeing that the 6233 is the MAJOR update to 6230. Even the blasted 6131 is able to store 1,000 and that is a lower-end model to the 6233. The way I see it, the only phone that hasn't lacked in any area worth mentioning is the 6230. I think I will just stick to it and continue seeing it as PRECISION and ENJOY IT as Nokia's official site boasted. The 6230 still dominates !!!
How does 6233 mp3 files sound as a RIIINGTOOONE.. Is it loud and clear even from the beginning??? OR is it lower??
I received my new 6233 this week and am thus far very happy with the purchase. The excellent keypad, clear interface and good reception mean that this is a great phone for texting, which is what I primarily use it for.
I do have a couple of questions though, and would be very greatful for any answers:
i) The tech spec of the phone on the Nokia website refers to "3d sound effects". Is there a setting on the phone for this somewhere, or is the phrase just marketing speak for stereo speakers?
ii) I keep trying to remove "voice mail" from the left go to context sensitive button off the main menu, but it keeps reappearing... any thoughts as to why?
iii) Finally, when I try sending a text message via a bluetooth connection using Nokia PC Suite (v6.7, the one that came with the phone), the message is sent fine, but it does not appear in the "Sent items" folder. Is there any way I can make this happen?
Thanks for any assistance, if there are any questions I can answer please feel free to ask.
Hey guys, can you all double check on the specs of this phone, mind you, it has got stereo speakers! (2.. Dual) Sound produce is better than w800i, k750i and w810i. i'm not making any false statement cos i do own w810i with me now! Though with headset on, w810i's sound is very good but in terms of external reproductions 6233 can beat them hands down. Well let me also state that sound produced from 6233's headset is pretty good too!
2nd, i don't experience 'heating' issues! My phone calls are on the average 1hour and phone doesn't behaved anything unusual.
I do agree that phone's in general will have problems cos they're eletronic device afterall.. Not just 6233 but any phones will tend to have manufacturing faults! BUT THEY DO NOT REPRESENT THE MAJORITY! (at least for me cos till now mine works like a dream!)
Can you guys post more 'intellectual' comments or questions that are still not answered cos most of the necessary 'doubts' or 'questions' had been answered! Make that effort to go through previous posting yeah?
(My 2 cents worth and personal comments)
@disappointed, are there really 999 takeaways where you live? Surely you can delete afew......lol
And that's the problem? Come on man... Write somethink about real problems, something more importat like this heating issue. Regards
I just bought this phone and very disappointed i am. With the 1000 contacts storage in 3230, I cant even move them into 6233 with only limited 500 contacts storage. Therefore, if you are serious people with lots of contacts, think thrice on this model. Why does Nokia always comes out with shortcoming on every model!!!
When you use mp3 as a ringtone, does it sound loud and well????
Better than k750i and w800i ????
I just bought this phone. Haven't got it yet (tomorrow) I keep reading the unconfirmed rumours too about the phone getting hot. I hope not. I don't want to have to deal with the return process and having to find a "better" phone for that price range!!

how is the photo quality at night as it does not have flash. can photos be taken at night.
With about 2 hours of Radio/MP3 playback, 30 mins of calls and 10sms'es per day I managed to squeezed 3 full days before it when compeletely dry! I don't off my phone at night, used it as alarm clock and events reminder too. Standby time like this, it's excellent! But for all new user, do remember to charge it for at least 12 hours on the first charge and run this cycle for the next few charges too..
Nope. All new nokia mobile phones from late last year (starting from 6101) onwards all uses the smaller 2mm pin charger.
