I have the 3230 since only two days yet, but i have already an opinion. This phone is amongs the slowest s60 phones that i know, YET it also is one of the best looking ones! The camera isreally good, it is a breeze to use the file transfer via cable (bluetooth on the PC sometimes refuses to detect the phone) and most of the 3rd party software is compatible (as opposed to the N70 which is a million percent faster, but runs almost none of the usual softwares).
After using GPRS, the phone slows down to a crawl but a reboot will "fix" this. I use a almost completely full 1 Gigabyte MMC so that might be the reason (i have 300 songs and several full-length movies on it).
Mine has the old firmware still (3.0505.2) so i too suffer from the rather bad and weak mp3 sound, but a firmware upgrade will most likely solve it - if Nokia ever gets this upgrade all the way to Thailand, which can take AGES.
I can recommend the 3230 for normal users who seek a phone with excellent reception, good voice quality (which it has! very loud and clear) and beautiful looks. I will NOT recommend it for power users or gamers - it really lacks performance.
I do not like this model at all. The signal strength is appalling. How can a phone supposed to be so sophisticated actually have no signal or lose the signal whilst in a city? Sending texts is labourous and too slow. I would not recommend this mobile to anyone.
Is this phone still with mono MP3 player even with latest firmware?
Secondly, I am also evaluating 6670, which has PDFViewer and Quick viewer for Word, Excel and Powerpoint. Can these applications be loaded in 3230 also?
Help me pls!

I agree wz u jaypee. This phone really gave me so much problem...ever since i bought, NITEMARE begun.....till now....still resolve....I used it within 2 weeks and sent in n out till today....PISS OFF !!
Hello ! guys.I have just buy a 3230 .Some guys write that it is a bad phone.Is it correct?Any one tell me about 3230,who have using it now.Thanks.
nokia 3230 is a really bad phone never used it....even if u get it for free ....the phone is like an hell on the earth it keeps hanging, the voice quality is bad .....go for o2 guys its a new brand
ok guys here it is.the comparison of the nokia 6630 and 3230. and believe it or not 3230 comes out on top thanks to the fact that its symbian. 3230 got push to talk,an infrared port,visual radio which im afraid the 6630 lacks.plus the 6630 can only take dual vlotage mmc whereas the 3230 can take both.3230 is smaller as well.so the only thing that lets it down is the mp3 player ryt? wel that all about to change
my mp3 player is brilliant!!!! its loud and crystal clear!! you have to do 2 things to achieve this::
1. get a firmware upgrade v.4....
2. get the latest mp3 player 3.50 which allows you to adjust the bass and stuff with an equaliser.its the loudest mp3 player yet!!!
and now that i have this mp3 player with such good quality, i can thankfully say the 3230 is better than the 6630

Don't worry you are not the only one who's dissapointed...I have it for a month and I can hardly wait for the next 3 weeks to pass, when I'll go to Italy and buy myself a N series.As somebody said "too bad it's in this body" It's like you see a beautiful girl and you like her but when she opens her mouth you run away ;)Nice body,low brain.The worst Nokia I have ever had my hands on!The restarting thing is killing me!
i have nokia (3230):
how can i save my SMS in the memory card?
My cousin has 6260. The speaker or ringing volume is soft. I think you better get Nokia 6630, 6680, 6681 or the N series.
so basically this isn't what i should go in for.yes tht was the idea i always had in mind i guess the 6260 is definately better if u ignore the camera
i have it for 20 days ,i hav many prbs with it,low speaker sound,hanging,restarting,giving system errors,
please any tell me how to inc spk volume &about latest softs, firmwares
i m feeling depressed after buying this.
i am looking forward to buy a new phone & i have selected two of em, one is the N3230 & N6630. i request all of u to reply me that which phone should i pick coz i really dont want to regret after purchasing as i've heard about N3230 it does not have a good video & also mp3 is not so good
jope that you would reply to me very soon through my email
thank you every one
had the phone used it for four days, the keypad just screwed up, it has something to do with the top board of the keypad, its too thin,numbers become jumbled and will not function well.in terms of features i really liked everything but the physical set-up can't support the overwhelming software it has so overall, i rate the phone as...too bad it had to be in that body.
well....i am going for a new phone by the end of this month and i am confused whether the 3230 is better or the 6260.
do let me know frankly with no prejudice about either-especially tell me in terms of sound quality and applications which is better camera dosen't matter that much.
pls hurry and let me know i would be going for one soon.
thnx very much
Sorry didn't know that :)I didn't know it's a software problem,i've read that this phone's hardware doesn't support stereo mp3.But if you say that upgrading makes the difference...my mistake :)
