I am a Nokia 3230 User ..
Let me help people who want to buy it
The phone is really great the only Disadvanteges r
1)Sound quality is real low with speaker but......With the stereophonic headphones the Sound Becomes really cool
2) There r some software bugs but they do not bother a great deal ............ and
The rest of the phone is THE BEST OF THE REST
Hey I've been a Customer of Nokia since I Went cellular Yrs bfore!!!I m a FAN of NOKIA & wil alwys remain.Just 3 mnths ago I sold my 6600(Indeed a Good Cell, My 1st Symbian)since i had a buyer 4 de same. After hearing bout the 3230 & its great Look I ordered one frm de Gulf. I had just seen it at the Local Showroom but never got a Chance 2 hear it, since it was a new Release.It had a terrific look & great Photo quality Camera..much more better den 6600.compared to the previous it was a High speed Phone wt all de Features.i read about de Bugs & defects the 3230 had but den Alas i experienced it:- 1)It gives a LOUD BEEP bfore evry incoming cal ringtone & SMS (Pretty much irritating) 2)MP3 playback & ringtone Vol. very low & very less Mono quality.(UNBearable Bug) 3)Dust Goes tru the Joy Stick & is visible very much during daytime & cannot be cleaned frm outside.If at all u r a Technician, u got to open the frnt panel & clean de Dirty Display 4)Fm radio wrks only with wire Headset attached but if u try with Blue tooth headset it wont turn the radio ON 5)when Photo is clicked with Camera, it takes Long time 2 save the pic & get the Phone back to Cam mode.
thts all the bad points of the Cell. Over all the phone is very well Designed by great Craftmanship.like the whole Keypad takes just a small amnt of space of the phone & de rest of it Dedicate wholly 2 de Big Display(Wonderful Placement of keys). Shape is Good compared to 6600. I had the Silver/black colour,, i liked the colour very much.Swap on M card. is very useful.People who go in 4 low Budget Phone & will not want great sound can choose this One!!!
Believe me or Not I sold the 3230 to a Shop after using it 4 just 15 days since i got bored of all those bugs & Defects
Im now using my Nok 6310i (old One)which i previously had as a Back up Phone. Ive heard a lot of this New release by NOKIA tht is the NOK 6681 & im getting the same by FRIDAY.I suppose this is de best release of Nokia with an updated Sysmbian OS. Any coments bout this one plz write to me or send it on this Post. Cheers to The NOKIA team 4 Producing great Phones.
Wa, siok la u. So cheap u get ur 512mb. Where u buy oh? I got mine for RM240 about 2 months ago. KingMAX. Really not fair la. Hey is there 1Gb RS-MMC available at the shop u buy ur memory card? If yes what's the price? I wonder if it can work on 3230 without much problem.
Dude...this phone rocks!!But the only thing is that why is there a dumb "beep" suond before any ringtones or message tones?the sound even comes out when the alarm rings..can someone please help me out here..i'm quitte irritated rite now..email me at firstname.lastname@example.org ok?thanks!!
almost everything you need in a smartphone. worth ur money!
i hope developers of my old windows ce powered tanager smartphone would see this.
by the way,i hammered it into pieces already.
hey ya !! i got my rsmmc 512mb the other day...twinmos-lifetime guarantee...rm168..hahaha..wat a buy !! now i got loads of space!! but i dun think my 3230 has slowed down much at all..only when pic thumbnail loads..GO FOR THE RS/MMC that has a longer guarantee!!
heY, i just bought the nokia 3230.. Great phone.. amazing quality amazing features and an amazing camera.. only things it lags is that the phone is a bit slow in its applications and the sound from the speakers are crap.. overall, i would rate the phone a 7.5 out of 10....
just bought a 3230 am impressed with the features.
can any one tell me how to delete the history files created while using browsing the net using my cell. also whats the best recommended antivirus.
3230 only support Reduced-Size MMC. If u get normal MMC u'll be in trouble coz it won't fit it.
Hey those with tmobile hotspot, can i use this phone to get internet connection on my laptop by bluetooth?
can i also use usb cable to get internet connection?
Crazy JM! I knew ur extra post will be deleted. Haha.
Hey my bluetooth adapter spec says transfer rate 723Kbps. I think it's not 22kbps coz that's really slow.
I'm from Srilanka and the service provider says its tv features can be used if real one player is available.. Btw Thanks in advance i've been listening in to the forum for a while and i know you guys help each other out..
I got a question! well. is Nokia 3230 able to play real media player?.. meaning can it use the TV features available in service providers??.. would apreciate a quick answer!
Finally i solved the problem with my 512MB RSMMC.
Not only the card was defective(I got a new one and this time my phone was able to read it and format it) but also my card reader was a piece of cr** unable of reading large memory cards.)
