dominuz: to your dismay: just to inform you why GSMARENA is around... to let users know the cons & pros of a phone... The specification of the phone have already been listed in great detail and worst come to worst, review is out... yet you went ahead to bought the phone? What have you more to complain? If you have bought it despite reading the specs/reviews - IF the outcome of the phone turns bad, isn't it true its the fault of the "owner" of the phone is in the wrong of purchasing it? or should i say that you have come to terms to accept its disadvantage before purchasing? don't complain and for the price tag this phone have given you, what more do you expect and have to complain about?
Matt: Mono = Monophonic. Mono types of speakers only uses one transmission channel whereas Stereo = Stereophonic uses two or more channels to produce sounds which could produce sounds much more precise.
what does a mono mp3 player mean? is there any speaking like? does it play the proper tune?
i m a n3230's owner...the worst part of it is its mp3 tone..realy sux...the volume is so soft..it's worse than n6600...no joke...othr than that, it's a nice phone...big display, high qualty camera, included various kind of functions...but i suggest u don buy this phone...
I think the phone is really outrageous and if ur not using it,u are not with the right phone.I think it has all the qualities a phone should have
Hi guys i am planning to buy this phone this year so i hope u guys could tell me about its mp3. Is the mp3 sound quality as same as the nokia7610??? Thank you.....
Rubbish!! Upgraded last week, within TWO hours the screen was freezing, got a replacement, and within FOUR days the screen froze, couldn't even switch it off to re-boot, had to remove the battery. Have always been a Nokia fan, but now it's bye bye Nokia.
i too hav da same feeling but 1st hav to confirm if nokia 3230 firmware V4.0526.0ch;
letsc if it even exists
is it true that with a newer firmware our 3230 is able to play mp3 in stereo? I find that difficult to believe.
Can anyone confim that?
just to share this to all the N3230 owner.
i've just got back my phone nokia service center for firmware update today and found that now my phone was able to play MP3 in stereo(with ear piece).. but of cos sound quality is not that prefect but at least it is not playing the usual mono sound.. the version of firmware that was updated to my phone is (V4.0526.0ch)..

To May and to all others. Pls don't ask me to email direct ok.
Ok May, to answer ur questions:
1. Indeed 3230 volume is low. But when set to highest volume, it's still loud actually. Only thing is the sound normally will be a little distorted. Really depends on what type of tone u playing.
2. Music player only play in mono... doesn't matter whether MP3, Midi, wav, or other sound files... like ati2 said it only producing 16kHz mono sound.
