i wish i had held on to the 3230 but at that time i wasnt aware that the fw upgrade could fix the sound and i was completely taken aback by the horrible sound it had and couldnt stand it so changed to another model.......i feel that nokia could improve on these issues, they could hav had better QC and made the sound acceptable from the start it was released...as what i was looking for was not excellent sound, in fact i knew it was mono and i was just looking for acceptable mono sound from the 3230, but at that time it was far below my expectations. the mp3s had background noise, and some of the music when played had some sort of ssss noise to accompany it, in addition to not being clear. that time i was really shocked why nokia could release phones with such sound quality. luckily, the problems with these horrible sound dont exist anymore with newer firmware even though the mp3 can't become stereo.....and a gd thing nokia fixed the sound, otherwise 3230 would be known for its horrible sound quality and discourage pple from buying it.
i downloaded themes for my phones into the RS MMC, which is sis. format. But my memory card cant seem to read the files? is there anything wrong with the phone or the memory card?
Bad bad phone,
Too bad it has symbian too,
cant they make a better OS than it?
it must all the time so slow and buggy,
Nokia makes one platform (series 60) and use it to all their phones with slight changes :-(
Menu is very slow, the phones jams all the time, it cant support new 3D Java games and the NES emulator runs too slow,
on the top of that dust penetrates through the screen and has horrible effects on display, i ve been to Nokia for this problem and they said the guarantee wont cover it.
Well the rumours about Nokia's reability are just rumours...
Josie: With Version 4+ of the firmware MP3 playback is very good, but is not in stereo. There is nothing you can do to make it stereo, except listen to the radio (which is stereo). So if you want a good stereo MP3 player you should get one separately or consider another phone.
I am planning to get this phone soon.. but i heard some bad feedbacks like it will lag and the mp3 sound is not good..issit really that bad?

First of all I wouldn't suggest you to change 7610 into 3230 because the difference is only FM Radio.
You can just store your sms massages on computer using Bluetooth/USB cable and Nokia PC Suite.
SmartMovie or DVDplayer can play AVI files in full screen. And Smart Movie Converter from any video file can make a 176x208 AVI file supportable by above mentioned symbian programs. So you can enjoy your favorite video clip or movie in your mobile phone with surprising quality. I hope I understood your question in a right way.

To people wanting to have STEREO sound coming out of ur Nokia 3230:
1. Upgrade yr 3230 firmware to v4.0537.0ch at Nokia Care only.
2. Go to www.dotsis.com/vb/ to download and install PowerMp3 v1.01 into your phone.
3. Music files can be played with wonderful STEREO sound!!
And if you would like to take a risk, you can hack yr Nokia headset to modify and attach yr own personal headphones. Refer to "http://cellphones.hackaday.com/entry/1234000220054587/" for instructions to do so.
At the end of the day, you will have yr 3230's music player playing music at top quality STEREO sound with thumping BASS! Like that?
