i think the n-gage games DO work on the 6630! i used to have a 6600 they worked on that one!(you have to edit some things with some programs) i just bought the 6630 i didn't have time to try it out yet, but as soon as i do i'll let you guys know!(and ps the f-ing phone isn't ugly dude! check out the other 3g's!)
Does anyone knows what fixes that are included in the new 6630 firmware?
I have 2.39.xxx now, and currently have the following problems:
1. Whistleing high-pitch sound when doing voice only 3g calls (problem not noticeable when using the hands-free, noise come from phone only). Some other guy that had the same problem said this only was the case on 3g networks, not on 2g. I haven´t tried this though.
2. Reboots once in a while. Everyone seems to have this problem. Any better now?
3. Standby time always less than 34 hours even when not touching the phone (regardless of 2g, 3g, offline, without sim, signal strength). This may be a hw defect in my phone though.
Are any of these specific problems solved?
i took the phone to nokia for service. they were unable to fix it. and they gave me a new phone. but very soon, the same problem recurred. i got back to report the case to them. nothing can be done. hope they will be tackling it seriously and have a solution very soon.
For those guys who have been thinking that getting EDGE activated will help u get broadband speeds while browsing on ur handset - prepare to be disappointed . I got EDGE activated and was surprised to find that that I was still getting only around 50kbps. But all the operators in India have advertised about broadband speeds on handset for browsing and streaming . But the EDGE speeds are only for streaming it seems . the problem is this . I sent a mail about this to Nokia and this is what I got in reply -
Dear Mr. Ram,
Thank you for your email to Nokia Care.
With regards to your enquiry, please note that, currently in India there is no network service provider who provides internet access service EDGE modem but they currently provide service for online video streaming. The internet access that you currently have is GPRS service.
So u can get only GPRS (50kbps) browsing speeds .....on ur handset/pc ....EDGE speeds are available only for streaming
sometimes when im taking pictures or accessing messages, it says memory card not found, will now use phone memory. but, clearly, the card is in FIRMLY. either i have to reboot the phone (without removing and replacing the card) which proves the electronics are okay, or i have to remove and replace the card for the phone to realise its in there.
secondly, the much-praised camera quality is well...crap. There is ALWAYS noise in the pictures day or night (hideous amounts of noise indoors), so you need something to remove it later. something like adobe photoshop. the image is ALWAYS a little blurred, no matter what resolution you use. you will NEVER get a truly beautiful shot (ie one that you can print) from this. the d500 kicks ass over the 6630 in this respect, despite the fact it uses more jpeg compression. the d500 delivers better pictures with a smaller file size.
anywho, i got this phone for 20 quid from orange 3G retail on 30 pound a month. i get 200 anytime x net rollover for 1 month, 1000 anytime texts, 50MB data usage, 60 mins anytime x net video calling inclusive. 380 quid for the whole year. they knocked 50 quid off because i got introduced by a friend and 50 quid tradein for my 3310. the 1000 txts are because im a student!!
Hi, all, I intend to buy this phone. It's appearance is not important to me. I am more into its features, hardware and software reliability. I see more of software problems in this forum such as reboot etc... can NOKIA 6630 advise me? THANKS
this fone is probably the best atm. it looks cool and 1.3 megapixel! and its clearer than the s65 camera. it is a symbian fone and has everything for a multimedia fone. the only thing is porbably the weight of it.
this phone is the best!!!!!!!.....i already had all kinds of phones like 3650,6600,and 7610, but this is the best!!!!..nokia made a breakthrough!!!!!!!
As I have buy 6630 yesterday for 365 euros in full pack and Im get rid of my 6600 it is a geat phone for a little value.After all it is same like 6600 but much faster,mp3 support great camera etc.I have payed for 6600 a year ago 400 euros now one year later I have buy a much better phone for 365 euros.For smart people it is enough.
PS Dont compare any other rubbish with Nokia :)
Hi, im from the philippines. I am just quite curious about the the quickoffice, that is installed in the phone. Will it be able to support files from the Microsoft Office 2003? Can it be opened through transfering the file from the computer into the rs-MMC? Lastly, which would you recommend purchasing, the 6630 or the upcoming 3230, its really quite hard. Thanks a lot! ü
i have done more tests of the phone. findings:
the problem i have, with saving files from "messaging" to "gallery", the process of which stalls forever, has nothing to do with bluetooth. i sent an MMS to myself and the process of saving the picture from "messaging" to either the phone memory or card memory still stalls.
it's fine to save images and mp3 and vidoe clips from the 3G browser to the memory.
i gather there's a bug between the "messaging" program and the "gallery".
i bought the phone the first day it's available in hong kong, right b4 xmas.
the version info:
i encounter problems with saving files recieved via bluetooth.
a file received via bluetooth are kept in the inbox as an incoming message. as i open it, i can read the file, an image or an mp3 file.
but when i try to save it to either phone memory or card memory, the process stalls. it never stops itself. the longest time i let it go is 30 minutes.
interestingly if i leave it there (without exit), get back to the menu to open the gallery program to open any image or video clip, and then reenter the mail program, the process immediately gets completed.
nokia and my service provider here in hong kong cannot fix the programe and they give us a new phone replacement yesterday.
they test the phone with me and it saved files received via bluetooth perfectly. i thought the problem had gone. but it's not the end.
hours ago, i found the same problem returned. not only with the files i newly sent to the phone via bluetooth. but also with the files still in the inbox which were successfully tested. i was unable to re-save them like they were smoothfully saved when the phone was tested.
thus it seems something i did to the phone may have trigger some bugs.
what i did:
- customising different profiles
- setting language, time, and things like that
- writng and sending SMS
- downloading and saving files from my 3G service provider (these files are always saved fine)
i dont think it's the problem with the memory card. as i have tried going through the file-saving process without the memory card, i.e. saving the file to the phone memory, but the process still stalls.
any idea fo comments from friends here?
tks a lot, indeed.
i just purchased the N6630 two days ago... it was awesome!!! but i got disappointed with the light thing that "Customer" mentioned... but other than that its cool!!! i love it... but can somebody help me why i cant personalize the go to function??
Issue of 6630:
1st issue, the palette colour isn't changing. 2nd issue -low RAM. 3rd, the phone resets once in a while.....1. The light sensor was perhaps a bad idea - the screen sometimes just loses the intensity ....at the wrong time ....and sometimes its unecessarrily bright.
2. Nokia should have have darkened the keypad markings a bit more ....it already looks like its faded - despite this not being the case.
3. Obvious thing is the low ram and only 64mb RSMMC currently available coz of that DV thing .....
I agree with "mrdjape" (Unknown, 2004-12-28 21:04:56). He is absolutely right. They are just playing with the pockets of the buyers.
I have read many many opinions regarding the 6630 before I purchased on December 23rd. I have read complaint, reviews that are coloured by owners previous phones and I have read warnings against buying because a new model with 2 cameras might appear in January. Not once have I read that the 6630 is an excellent phone. That's what is is, a mobile phone. And the extras are wonderful. The camera, the video recording time, the Symbian interface (I still can't install applications but I love trying) and overall it is a very pleasing phone. Yes, Phone! And as a phone, it works brilliantly. Oh tes, there is another thing, the mmc is a reduced voltage small mmc and there are no 512 or higher cards available to buy as of today. Those of you who say there are, are incorrect.
So stop picking faults with the extras on the machine and consider that it is a phone that does so many other things really well. If it were perfect, we would all get bored withit really soon.
cait : there is no comparison .... 6630 is way better ... it is a smarphone and it is fantastic.... the s700 is good but comeon .... it is HUGE.
