its not a bad phone. i dont know why you people are complaining about the keypad. its easy and comfortable to use.[maybe u all have GIANT FINGERS AND THUNBS] the phone has also never failed me, never did shut off unecessarily like some of you have said. not the lightest phone, but still ok. and since some cant stand the "lousy camera", why dont the few of you buy a digi cam with 8megapixels. THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW EARLIER CAMERA PHONES BY NOKIA FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.
OMG! i got mine last yr, and the end of last yr it stuffed up with mulfunctioning real bad! i was so poohed bum'd and it was away 4 over a week, they gave me another phone and then march this yr it played up the pooh bum's again and was away 4 3 weeks! i was so over it, they gave me another phone. and then about 3 weeks ago it was stuffing up again, likre frexzzing, etc. and i am lilke sop pooh's tht i go to them and tell em, they tgold me to ring nokia this time, i rang em yessy afternoon and told em off, they were no help they just said get it fixed again! So this weekend i'm away i come bac on monday, i have the choice of taking it in an waiting 2 weeks risking not gewtting it back b4 i got away for 2 weeks and i'm worried. i'm wanting to get a new phone and sell mine, i'm thinking of geting it fixed and geting a new phone, and whn its fixed sell it, some how? 3200 is a mean phone, it does nothing but complain (STUFF UP) i'm over it. anyone with same problems tell me please, or atleast someone help me in wht to do.!! thku!
I hate this phone. The quality of the camera is awful, all you can see is little pixels and it is hard to make out the pictures..i have had so much trouble with it and countless bugs. I had to send it in three times i believe and each time it comes back with another bug. It was ok for a while there and does come with features but they really need to fix up the problems with what seems like 1 in 3. I would give it 4/10 overall. I guess i bought it at the wrong place...I would not reccomend to buy this phone to anyone.
I've had this phone for awhile. Some things suck about it like how the buttons are and things like that. But i have dropped mine and it has never been broken. I even dropped it into a pool of water and it has been working fine. I think it is virtually indestructable.
for quite a while now i have stuck up for this phone, saying it is only worth the money you pay so what do you expect?
well, if you plan to have this phone for a long time DON'T GET IT. I have had mine for 18 months now, and the battery has gone completely. I charge it up on an evening and the next morning I go to make a phone call and the battery dies. Never had this problem with any other nokias. This phone is great...but only if you plan to have it for a short amount of time.
Who know n3200 simcard block code ? (like this ... after typing the code, all tariff (like calling, sms, mms or anything) is stopped or say that FREE.)
ive had the fone 4 only a week and it has been turnin of 4 no purpose and wouldnt go bak on i had heep of mb but no i only hav 200kb of memory even though i hav neva downloaded or used any kb it is a hunk of s#|*
the phone suks it is worth about $20 the camera is bad it neeeds more features and better covers instead of wastin tome makin it yourself, if i could go bak in time i would get those $100 nokias cuzz i no its betta, i advize you 2 not get 1
I've owned a Nokia 3200 for a little over a year now, and it's a fabulous phone. It's my first cell phone and I've loved it. Some of my favorite features on it include: the radio, flashlight, camera, the *relatively* high-speed EDGE/GPRS (I'm in the USA) WAP internet, and the Infrared port. I also like how Nokia was able to pack so many cool features into a small candy-bar shaped package --- when I was looking at phones, I wanted a cameraphone that was small, compact, and not a flip-phone... Although the camera is of average quality, I've been able to take some nice photos with it. The editing feature is neat, too 'cos it allows me to edit pictures without uploading them to my computer. I also like how I can upload my own ringtones and wallpaper pix from my computer, especially since the ones offered from different places cost way too much for me. The radio is neat too since I can tune into a station if I'm bored with what's on my CD player or something; provided I have the headset with me -- it was a good thing Nokia threw one in for free, although I'd like to get one of the stereo headsets they offer. There are some things I don't like about my phone, but they're so miniscule that it doesn't really matter in the overall scale of things.
Overall, the Nokia 3200 is a great phone and Nokias seem to be the most user friendly phones out there, I think --- especially since you can easily unlock them for use in other countries...and the OS is simple to understand. That's a good thing 'cos if you're going to have fancy features on a phone, the OS has to be easy to use.
I have this fone and i think the cutout cover idea is really good. ok the camera is a bit bad but if u send it 2 a pc it comes out really good! the radio is kool and u can voice record for a min
I hate this phone with a passion. The buttons are awful, the case is cheap and tacky, the memory is non existant and the camera is at best average. Its aimed at the teen market and thats fine but for me days with one of these was more than enough.
this set is very sensitive to any down load may be GPRS/cable dont go for it is very undesirerable so be away thinking about it
A few more things.
I will admit, for colour screen phones, the norm these days are 65,536 or higher BUT when the 3200 was released, the average colour screen was 4096 colours and higher-end phones had 65,536 colours. Despite that, in comparison to other 4096 colour screen phones, the Nokia 3200 does a better job at picture clarity and higher colour depth. For example, comparing the Siemens MC-60 to the Nokia 3200, the Siemens screen looks terrible compared to the 3200. As another post said, regardless of the 4096 colours, "the colour is INDISTINGUISHABLE".
To me it's very colourful for a 4096 and clear for a CSTN screen.
In regards to malfunctioning. I can only remember my 3200 malfunctioning 2 or 3 times and it wasn't anything serious. The problem was that everything became louder. Keypad touches were much louder and when a call was received the recipient was autmatically on loudspeaker and there was no way to switch it from loudspeaker to handset mode, but that only happened 2 or 3 times and a simple turn off & back on fixed it.
I have had this phone for 7 months and loving it. No regrets whatsoever.
The Nokia 3200 is the BEST phone I ever owned. Previously I had a SE-T310, my first colour screen phone and it was ok for the most part. The only problem was the memory, it came with 511KB free out of the box, out of 1MB give or take a few bytes. The Nokia 3200 also has 1MB give or take a few bytes BUT it came with 775KB out the box and to add to that, the 3200 doesn't require a lot of KB for photos like the SE-T310. I used a photo to compare the difference between both phones, the 3200 quality was more vibrant and clearer of course because of it's higher resolution and higher colour screen (4096c 128x128 opposed to SE-T310 256c 101x80). In addition to displaying photos more clearly, the 3200 uses less memory for photos. A particular photo that takes up 11KB on the SE-T310 only takes up 5KB on the Nokia 3200, which is less than 1/2.
Nokia 3200 good point: good file compression.
Now to comment about what MOST of you people critize:
The Nokia's display is good. The trick is NOT to resize your photos to 128x128. If you downloaded a photo with a resolution of 400x500, leave it as is and send it to the phone, you will be amazed at the clarity.
The battery life is more than ok for me. Last week I charged it and started using it on Monday morning and it lasted me all week. It didn't run empty until Saturday. I received quite a few calls and made a few. I also received text messages. However, I didn't play any games nor surfed the internet. The fact is that I used it right throughout the week and it lasted for a week.
I don't know what you people are complaining about. I find the keys quite easy and comfortable to use. I have never pressed a key and pressed both the top and bottom at the same time. Those who complain about that must have some GIANT fingers. It took me less than a week to get used to the keypad. The only drawback is that using it for long hours can hurt your thumb a bit but that’s nothing to complain about.
WEIGHT and SIZE:
Whoever complains about the weight and size is crazy. This is probably the lightest 3series Nokia. Previously I owned a 3310 and 3410. They were both BIGGER and HEAVIER than the 3200. The 3310 weighs 133g, 3410 weighs 114g and the Nokia 3200 weighs 90g. You do the math. The size is indeed compact. It barely shows in my pocket. If you put the 3200 on top of a 3310 or 3410 you will see that the 3200 is not as wide or tall as those other phones.
I'm NOT saying it doesn't have it's BAD POINTS because like every phone it does BUT the good certainly OUTWEIGHS the BAD. NUFF SAID.
My post may be long BUT I'm SURE it was WORTH the read. Love you all.
