hi...i'm planning to buy one Nokia 3230... Can anyone of you please do let me know whether its worth going for it....tnx a lot
i am very happy to send this message i really like the nokia phones because of how good and strong they i wish the company to keep it up and do more thanks
About two weeks ago, I was in the market for a new mobile phone. The choice was between the Samsung D500 which appealed aesthetically and a Nokia smart phone based on the Symbian operating system, which boasted expandability. I was pulled towards the Nokia and the symbian platform because I wanted the expandability and to the 3230 in particular due to the relatively low price. Of course, I also loved the form factor. Having no clue whatsoever which to buy, I turned to the Internet for reviews and was stunned by the negative reviews for the 3230 on most sites. The complaints seemed to center around the keypad scrunched into the bottom third of the phone, and stability issues with the software. Despite this, I decided to go for the 3230 and have been very happy with this decision. Don't let the negative reviews get to you. I have big hands and have not found the keypad to be difficult to use with one hand. The weight of the phone makes it relatively stable in your hand. The keypad is firm and has a good tactile feel to it. In terms of stability, I have had the phone for over two weeks now and it has rebooted on me once. I have loaded and tried QuickOffice, which is a relatively work horse application and the phone works fine. Opera also works without a hitch. Also, if there are any other Mac users out there, the 3230 syncs with the Mac as advertised, without any problems. Speed of operations is a little slow in terms of responsiveness of opening/closing programs but I have ot found this to be a major problem.
Everyone is upgrading all over the world but I'm being left out.... :(
Just got mail from them and they say still no new fw available... guess have to wait further.

Hello ! All....!
In PHONE FINDER section if you select all features, you will find only one phone and that will be none other then NOKIA 3230.
This is the only phone in this world which has everything.
If you don't believe me just check it out yourself at PHONE FINDER Section GSM Arena.com
hey i got this phone before two weeks n its an awsome phone has got evrything which is required no issues
Hey guys i'm from Singapore. I upgraded my phone to v4.0526.2ch 16-08-05. Yup same as that of the guy who posted below. Upgradin takes 4 hours.@wheelock place.anw the bass quality of the mp3 player has improved by alot. It made me reconsider if i nid to buy 3250 or an iPod.Cos the bass can make one's heart thump w the music! Plus the warnin beep sound b4 a call or sms is almost silent(still present tho). Yup. But its quite a great change than the v3.xxx.x firmware. Yup!
yes i do love the style of this phone
and come to think of it that it is a S60 with the FM/Radio feature i'm looking for
but with its drawbacks i was not pleased at all
no vibrate alert in silent mode,
hangs and the screen freezes to the NOKIA startup sign so i cant switch off unless i remove the battery.
unsatisfactory and a waste of money
almost perfect but not quiet
I upgraded my N3230 V4.0526.2ch 16-08-05 2 days ago (from date of posting) in SG Nokia Care. So working fine. Mp3 still mono but more bass. Performance no much improve.
Hi , I got this phone 2 days ago , it works fine.But one of th disadvantages is the loud speaker which the volume is not so high , you many miss your calls in street ...
and the quality of MP3 playing is not good at all , i had simenes SL45i it was much nicer .
the camera is good if you have enough light , at the same time Night mode works as well.
the battery life is about 1.5 days if you work with Blue tooth and other applications for about 2-3 hours.
keypad is average , I can't say it's not comfortable but it needs a little paitience.
but in over all I'd say it has every thing u need and want .
What can i say,about this phone? When i click on all my required features on phone seekers (GSM ARENA)this is the only phone,that appears.so for me, theres no challengers in this class.
I think great phone ,but what can i do the speaker is too loudly .tell me plz. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello Guys? How's this fone? What kind of softwares are available for this cellphone? Should P buy this handset??
Well for Singaporean users of 3230, I've went to Nokia Care at Wheelock Place to ask about the latest firmware version for this phone. It's V4.xxxx.x..I haven upgraded today but will do so tml. The personnel said it would take abt 4 hrs and it's free if u present ur warranty card. Yup. Will update u all on the changes after upgrading the phone tml. Yup!
