i find this phone very slow. it hangs all the time and some of my messages go to the Drafts folder even when i thought that the message had already been sent! i think a software upgrade is needed at once :(
now i know..my 3230 supports stereo..sounds excellent..my mother has a 6630..ive compared the sound w/ my 3230...its the same...also the camera
i have noticed that in o2 they have a refurbished 3230, and on the back it says 1.3 not 1.2 megapixils. Maybe in the refurbished one they have got rid of some of the problems. What do you think?
I am very interested in having msn messenger and irc in my 3230. The problem is that I don't have any idea where I can get these programs. Could someone help me? I am desperate.
Feel free to email me or post your answer here. Thank you!
Hi to all friends
I buy nokia 3230 smart phone since 1 month later.
People always compare nokia 3230 and nokia 7610 and they did not decide which phone is better to buy. But I think that nokia 3230 is better than nokia 7610.Those who love to take best picture they have to by 3230 not 7610.
1. N3230 screen display and pixel are sharper and brighter than 7610.
2. It has 1.3 MP cam 7610 cam is only MP.
3. When we take picture on 7610 it seems a VGA cam picture like 6600, only differ is that its take in 1152*864 pixels.
4. Also 3230 take videos with (QCIF).but 7610 cannot.
5. The sounds of 3230 and 7610 are nearly equal
6. 3230 have a smart IRD port but not available in 7610.
7. There is a visual and FM radio but not in 7610.
8. People like 7610 because of only they like there interesting look and design.
1. N7610 sound is little bit louder than 3230 but we can loud 3230 sound by updating firmware.
2. N7610 design is pretty.
3. There is 64 MB card and data cable included in 7610 but 3230 come with only with 32 MB.
You will free from some problems in N3230 if you update firmware.
Therefore 3230 display is clear than SE K750.it is amazing. My brother have SE k750 when I see on his mobile (K750) display it is not look better then 3230 display.
Over all Performance escpecially its EDGe is superb the only worry.. hw can i improve mp3 sound .. how to make it stereo... shall i upgrade it by using third party players .. please help
hey..all 3230 users..listen carefully:i had bought this phone 1 month ago..i support that this is the worse symbian phone made by nokia since 7650 released.
1.very bad sound
2.worse mp3 player(terrible)
3.it says 1.2 pixels but camera performance is not even closer to 7610 or 6670.
4.worse casing(sensitive and easily scratchable)
5.beep before ringer makes u crazy.its let u think that if the beep is still there..then what is the need of ringer tones:(
6.old symbian version in new model
7.1000 times bad than 6630..or more:)
suggestion for users:
dont buy it..plz
if u want to consider which 1 u buy..then go for 6630 without wait.
with around $350 u shouldnt buy this mistake released phone.
at last u can ask what about my 3230? well i sale it with $300 (only 11 days used). then bought 6630 phone..and i am verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyy pleasedddddddddddddddddddddddd..
thnx guys.hopes my experience about 3230 helps u a lot.
one of the worst phones nokia have made. the symbian series have caused nothing but problems for so many users, and the speaker on this phone is terrible. Go for the nokia 6230i, same features, MUCH better speaker, and operates on the original nokia operating system.
By downloading can i fix other screensavers and animated wallpapers on my nokia3232?plz any body help me to do this.
I think 6260 also do not provide saving of sms to memory card by nature. But there is a 3rd party software which allow this and has been discussed many round here. msdrivee or something i think.
Came across another feature...
When you send a file to the phone via Bluetooth or Infrared, the file appears as an SMS in any Series 60 phone. By default, the Messaging applet stores everything in the phone memory and not the memory card.
Most Series 60 phones come with an option to store files directly on the memory card, but the Nokia 3230 isn't one of them.
Due to this missing option, even though you can put a 256MB RSMMC card into the phone, you can only receive files that are under 4.5MB, assuming that you don't have anything else stored in the phone memory. ( 1.5 mb for contacts )
I bought nokia 3230, problem is the speaker sound is not so good as compared to sony k700i is there any way to improve the speaker sound,can i download an mp3 player to improve the sound,can i put a 256 mb memory card,i hpoe this will not hang
Ok for the sack of some newbies, there's a search opinions function at the bottom of the page. Do a search on dotsis or symbianx and u'll see 2 of the best place for symbian phone owner like us. Register at those place for free and start grabbing all the goodies.
Here, try the one at this site
very very simple program.
Sorry to tell u that there's no built-in auto keylock function for 3230.
However, there's a lot of 3rd party auto keylock software out there. Try search for it at some of the symbian phone forums.
Get Symbianware's Power Dictaphone. Very cool program. Once I tried a 20mins recording and took me only less than 800kb i think.
Don ask me where to get it. Just read all the posting and look for places where u can get some FREE software if u know what i mean ;)
This set is a very good set,
having superb clearity of its camera,
radio is top class,
talk time is minimum,
has a good mp3 player but poor voice
should had been with stereo phonic sound,
also low internal memory.
top class show,glossy look and is a cool set
One more thing.. SOund is not sharp at all, my bro has N9500 communicator and the sound is great. I transfered some ring tones from his phone into my N3230, pretty much disappointed .. .. I have FW 3.0505.2 RM-51 in my N3230.. Is there any way to enhance sound quality????
TC and Vince,
