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 :)

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.
hello , I had these two questions :
1-Where exactly I can find 3230 FIRMWARE ?
(CAN IT BE FOUND ON THE WEB ? )
2-Can I my self upgrade and patch my phone or it needs any special equipment ?
Phone will support any Rs-mmc, even 1 gb but will become a little slow...
However if u leave sufficient space on ur memory card free ( about 100 mb) then i dont think you should be having any problems....
I have an nokia rs-mmc 128mb. I want to buy an 1gb rs-mmc. How the phone will work with 1gb rs-mmc. I will put just music on this 1gb rs-mmc(not software...). Will my phone work good? Or this phone support max 512 mb? Is there any limit for rs-mmc for 3230?
Help me pls!
I bought my Nokia 3230 in June 2005 in a duy free shop at Niece airport. The ringing volume has become very low of late even though it is at it maximum.
Please do help since we do not have any NOkia customer care in Ghana.
Also the screen reset by itself once in a while.
All the bug features of this fone has been corrected by the latest firmware version V 4.052602
1) Fat Pics = solved
2) No vibrate in silent mode = solved
3) Slow RAM = improved
4) Mono MP3 = solved its now STEREO
So guys go to the nearest Nokia Care Center to have your phones upgraded. Its free if you still have warranty.
And if you doubt if this version is already available at your country. I bet its already available in your country for it is already in the Philippines. My beloved, country =)
