Maybe I know whether this phone 3230 shows the LOW BATTERY INDICATION? From what I know, 6260 doesnt show it, when it runs out of batt, it just shuts the whole phone off.
whats the latest firmware u have on your Nokia 3230 ? press *#0000#
I've got V 3.01512.0ch 23-03-05 RM-51
6230i is Series 40 phone running Nokia OS whereas 3210 is Series 60 phone running Symbian OS7. So they are in now way of same platform. Pls do not simply quote.
3230 is a very good mobile.. great application. fm radio. 3d game & also very goood display quality than other 65k display.. i found only 3 problem that's 1.> hang / huge slow.
2.> sound quality too bad for mp3.
3.> 'edge' is not good like n6230i.
my suggestion is buy n6230i because it's very handy, same platform, good sound & display..
yup, it removed the beep sound and it does vibrate in silent mode now.. For the mp3 playback, it does not really sound as good as the FM radio but some how it is better then last time.. sound is clearer and louder with headset.
Thanks! ya i'm sendin mine in for e first time...so e new version doesnt hv beep, has vibration for sms in silent mode, and has stereo output for mp3 files?
Is it so? Hmm, how come so much different.... anyway how long did they take to upgrade the firmware?? U did it at Zitron huh... i suppose i too have to do it at Zitron... coz there's no more Nokia Care Centre around.... close shop already few months ago. So did they tell u what are the changes? Still got beep i suppose?? How about the silent mode sms?? Got vibration already?
What they told me is that for firmware update it normally take 1 day. By the way, if you are sending in for the 1st time, i think they need to change some hardware thingy in ur phone too.. And this gonna take 3days.
I went wheellock for service, but i will not suggest u to send your phone there cos of the service there is really bad.. perhaps u can try tampines.. heard that the service there is better..
It's br19htside frm SG..Juz wanna ask..which nokia care did u send ur 3230 to upgrade its firmware? how long did they say it wud take?
same dude: to your dismay, this is considered a smart phone, whereas Nokia 6230i, K750i isn't
chathurana: i solemly loves the way you put it :)

I bought this mobile in www.cable-land.net And I´m so happy . It´s a great cell phone.
This phone has various benefits such as;
bluetooth,infrared,radio,symbian,1.23megapixel camera,nice design,EDGE,mmc which is replaceable without having to switch off the phone,High quality construction,cheap in prise and also this is new
Also people tell that this has some drawbacks;
The dust goes under the screen, if you don't know how to remove dust, what can we do?
Then they say that they cannot replace covers, and I say that we can replace covers, if not what do we see at various web sites which sell those covers?
Does s.e. p910, motorolla v3, n91, n70and all the 'cool' phones can change covers?
Then they say that we cannot put a normal size Mmc , why do we put if we can get Rs -Mmc? ,how many of you use normal size mmc?
(I like to ask that how many of you use gramophones and how many of you use mp3 players)
Oh the beep sound ,if you here the ringing tone why not just a small beep, also you people say that you can change firmware and stop the beep sound.
What do you expect from a phone? ,do you expect surround sounds or 1.3 mega pixel camera other than 1.23,do you feel the difference between 1.3 and 1.23?,then you can buy a 20 Gb mp3 player and a 1.3 mega pixel camera and don’t forget to buy a 6000w sub woofer for your mp3 player. ok I know that this has better sounds than k700i which don’t has even symbian os.
By the way what is 6230i,ohh it’s the old design, just like the 6610,6610i, 1110 and even 3120 had it. I can see no difference at the first glance.can it send megapixel images via mms? Even the Memory card is under the battery. And it’s It's battery lasts only a day during normal work. Series 40.
Also you can use softwares to send data which is bigger than 4.5mb ,and to record voice
i don't think that you can live with this phone,i think that you cannoth live without.I got work guys , bye………..
Oh and it's the same price as the 3230, only problem is it's not a smart phone.
Hey, the Nokia 3230 is good (I own it) but if you are concerned with EDGE I suggest you get the Nokia 6230i. It's EDGE is 2 times faster, it's camera is a full 1.3 megapixel unlike Nokia 3230's 1.23 megapixel camera, Nokia 6230i has 1 hour voice recording and 3230 only has ONE minute and well to put it straight, Nokia 6230i has all of what 3230 plus more and it is smaller!
First of all- I must say that im a big nokia fan. All my phones have been nokia and right now im using a Nokia N-Gage so you can tell that im in-need of a new phone. I been looking around and i was checking out the SE K750 and im seriously thinking about that phone but theres one problem. It doesnt have EDGE.. and the service provider im with just now got edge and now i need something with edge. So im wondering, Is the 3230 right for me?
* Im a big application geek. I love putting games and programs on my phone.
* Im not that much of a ringtone guy.. I mean i have alot but i dont have alot of unique ringers for certain people. Though the next phone i get- Im definetly going to change my way on this and make certain ringers for certain people.
* Obviously, I like fast phones. Slow phones are a no-no.
* Like i said before- I use my card reader often and i been reading and it says you can't put files on the phone larger than 4.5 MB at a time? Wha?
So.. thats my deal. If somebody who has this phone can tell me if this is the phone for me using the information above- Then you'd save me alot of time and money.. lol.
for u info.. the mp3 sound is better then last time.. and yes the beep sound has been removed with the new firmware(4.0526.0ch)
And my firmware that show on my screen now is(4.0526.0ch) 22-06-05 RM-51
