Hi all,just bought the phone in Malaysia yesterday. I had 2 choices, O2 xphone IIm or nokia 3230. I decided on this one becos of the symbian OS.managed to find a 3230 with the v4.0526ch installed, so i took the plunge. So far, all the good & bad has been as per the comments & reviews. Good thing so far is that the phone hasnt shut down on me automatically. Verdict so far: if u dont use the phone to listen to music, I think its good value for $$$.(now to try to install some apps!)
Nokia 3230 is best!! It has all!!
Feel free to mail me if you want any information about this phone!
It is a grate phone, i've had it for two days now, and what disturbes me most is when i play a sound through the speaker. its scurry on the top tones. why i notice this is becaus my last phone (n3650)did not have this porblem... am i the onlyone with this quality of sound in the loudspeaker.?
Can anyone help me? thanks.
BTW! this is realy a grate site! ;)
More problmes with my phone.
My renewed love with this phone did not last long after upgrading firmware to 4.0526.2 when my phone speaker died the next day. I took it back to service center. They were quick to replace the speaker but it took only few minutes to die again. I had to return to the service cernter again. They tried couple of more speaker but with the same results. All of them died after few minutes. They took my phone for some more testing and told me to wait for two days. I will collect the phone today to see if they were able to fix it.

I reinstalled Video software but doesn’t work . Phone got very slow also. Pls pls pls HELP ME!
hello dear friends,I wanna tell you that if you are in doubt for choosing,I confidently suggest you for choosing 3230,I really love it,It is very nice,good camera,lovable games,
I love it,
If u only need a decent phone with nice music, K700i is ok. But the phone is quite limited in overall function. It doesn't support memory card and only has about what, 41mb?? The camera is just VGA??
If u were saying K750i or W800 may be there's a stronger comparison. K700i is at a lower class. Anyhow, be warned though that 3230 is kind of slow and it sound not as good if compare to SE phone. However, u get a ticket to tonnes of goodies from a wide range of symbian programs if u get 3230. Choice is up to u.
Sorry for my last post i was mistaken :D...
i am wantin to buy a mobile i have two options within my range :
k700i new packed or 3230 used under warranty.
any opinions which one is better ?
Firmware is only available at Nokia care centre. May be some mobile service centre also available. But definately not available openly and even if u really can get it, probably there's no use also coz u need special equipment to flash the EPROM I think.
Faisal, r u asking whether it has one or u r making a statement that it doesn't has one? Anyhow 3230 got infra red for sure. It is located at right hand side of the keypad.
Who says it has an infrared :@ ?
this site says so if it has one where is the infrared feature in 3230 ?
this phone is excellent good looks excellent camera excellent features.i own this phone and have no problems at all.........NISHANT
oh..there will be an even newer firmware comin out?? then i better wait a while more..hehe..thanks!
I went to Zitron (in KK Sabah). Hmm, went back for the upgrade and too bad the firmware was corrupted they said. No wonder the technician gave me the older 3.0515.0ch. The senior technician told me they will be getting another newer version (than 4.0526.2ch) by next week. Hmm, let's see what will happen next week la.
BTW, upgrade should be free for all warranty set. Even if after warranty, once a year u can get free upgrade when Nokia roadshow comes to town. :)
well, i guess new nokia 3230 should be at least v4..check b4 u buy it..type *#0000#
I m using n3230 for a week now. m satisfied till now. xcellent cam. mp3 output poor. My query - How do i find out what firmware version my cell is loaded with ?
