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 ?
N3230 is around 17k-19k. but if u apply for a globe plan 1800, its free. hehe . like mine. :)
hi guys, i juz wanna ask if the latest n3230 manufactured cellphones are already equipped with the latest firmware? oh and one more thing, to those guys who are from the philippines, how much is n3230 nowadays?
The handset reset problem is gone once the OS is upgraded 4.0526. As per earlier opinion there is also improvement in sound quality, but there following problems which Nokia says cannot be improved upon.
1) The handset doen't diplay regional language SMS.ie Hindi atleast.
2) The volume control of the MP3 player gets set to maximum level if any phone or miss calls come in between when your are listening songs. The only way to get back the control is to hardboot the handset.
Well, i just bought N 3230, I was thrilled for a while. But after 2 days, the sound were getting poor. Does anyone know the reasons why? Tell me please Nokia should improved the sound quality so that the users has nothing to complaint for. The camera has improved a lot. Hope that Nokia take note of this.
Hi, I had some problem with my one month old 3230. It was generating a hissing sound from speaker when the phone backlight was on. The sound will be gone if the display brightness was set to 100%. Did anyone else has the same problem?
I took it to the service center for repair and also requested to upgrade the firmware if available. I had 3.0505 on my phone.
I got the phone next day and after using it for a while I noticed that the hissing was somewhat fixed. I could hear a different but lower sound sometimes now, but by and larg it is acceptable.
I was upset to see the deep scratches at the back of the phone at the opening near the camera where the service guy opened the phone body. I wish to go back and throw the phone in his face for this. I could do it better myself.
I was surprised to notice that they actually upgraded the frimware to 4.0526.2 15-08-05 RM-51. Companies here in Saudi Arabia are not customer service oriented enough. The care least about what the customer is requesting.
The difference I have noticed so far in the new firmware are following:
1- The 'beep' is not removed but lower enough that you hardly notice it.
2- The mp3 player is still mono but the qulity has been improved a great deal. It sound way better now.
3- The menus are opening much faster than they used to be. They are no more slow.
4- Message alert has vibration in silent mode now and there is no 'beep' in silent mode.
I must recommend all of you that have above mentined problems to upgrade to the new firmware.
Actually the 3230 is older technology then the 6630. 6630 is DSP accelerated camera and video plus *stereo* MP3. Funny part is that the 6681 and the 6630 are almost exactly the same except the 6681 is only EDGE and has a flash. Weird eh?
To mark:u better shaddup if u dont know shit 6630 is one of the best in recentmemory.3320 is the worst phone.its screen gets spoiled after a few months n i m telling it coz i used both 3230 n 6630 u do it to n feel the difference.i work in cell phones n i got a shop of cell phones n i have tons of 3230 in my drawer given by customers giving it to me to fix it.BTW it helped me to get customers :)
hey TC! finally firmware v4, its arrived eh? which outlet did u sent it to? n approx how much does it cost? the last time i upgraded was v3.0515.0ch..cost me round rm30...
Hi Everybody,I'm tight up on looking at 2 set phone do not really know what to take. Panassonic X800 or Nokia 3230. Both phone price is not so far away in Singapore.Only thing is 3230 have a better camera I think
This morning I called Zitron (malaysia) and they told me V4.0526.2ch firmware is available now. But what a pity when I went there, they put in an old firmware. Only realised it on my way back. Called them back to re-confirm whether v4 is really available and they say yes and that probably the junior technician got the wrong file. :-( Now I got to go back and let them do upgrade again. Hmm, I thought I would be the proud owner of a whole new 3230 tonight... hope i got chance to do it soon. Well, people from malaysia go check ur service centre out for the upgrade.
