1.u should buy nokia 3230 if u want bigger screen and symbian os
2.u should buy k750i if u want good mp3 sound and higher res camera with light.
my opinion is nokia 3230 mp3 playback even using stereo headset has bad sound quality. mono and flat.
and regarding streaming ; the network setings dat u c in ur fone should not have an adverse effect; ......as long as the gprs accesspoint is setup correctly
at nokia customer service ; they know nothing b4 purchasing dis fone they emailed me stating dat dis fone has stereo mp3 and guess wat the fones got dual mono mp3 and not stereo
not dat im dissatisfied with da fone ; its gr8 except 4 da mp3 ;but atleast they should know their product and tell da truth
Hi I'm planning to purchase a handset in next few days. But I'm confused between nokia 3230 & sony k750i, which handset should I buy ?? Handset should be perfect in all respect of camera, look, mp3 .. etc.
Pls,pls,pls help me ... mail me ASAP.
Occasionally this happen to me as well. Not sure what triggers it but just restart your phone and the volume control will be back to normal. Software problem I think.
I just loooove this phone, specially now when i got the DKU-2 cable and have learned how to make the mp3 files smaler,,from example 5 Mb to 3.2 Mb. But i dont know if 32 Mb is enough. I think i will buy the 256 Mb card but will it make the phone slower???
For those who are thinking of buying the phone go for it, its worth it...i bought the phone for 300 euros and i havent regret it!!
Enjoy the phone
i feel n3230 is masterpiece though i ve not start using it. shortly m buying it. b4 i thought of going for 6230i but now i ve change my mind. mainly bcos of it big screen and 60 mins vedeo rec time
i think it is a nice and cheap phone not cheap but with affordable price of rupees 19000 rs in pakistan.it is far good from up coming latest models of nokia or sony ericsson.its design is cool and stylish.the functions are amazing.with 1.3 mp camera.this mobile is best we can get.
'Can't adjust speaker volume?'
The speaker volume has no effect when I adjust the volume bar left/right when playing mp3 or video. But when set to minimum (far left), it did become mute. Anyone got this problem too? Volume control is working fine on the earpiece though.
I'm not streaming from any other website coz that would cost me lot of these $$$$ i think. I've subscribe to my network's special package where they provide portal to their own server providing some video-on-demand stuff and few live streaming. While I stream from their server, I'm not being charged a single cent. I only need to pay a certain amount of monthly fee for this service.
Basically, I think the current phone firmware really weird. When I go to realplayer setting --> Connection --> Network setting --> advanced setting (through option), I see two setting there 1. GPRS and 2. EGPRS. But for both setting, the maximum is really low... EGPRS can only set to slightly over 80kbs.... that's only the max of normal GPRS??? Anyway, I sent an email to Nokia asking them about the firmware thing... hope they will enlighten me a bit soon.
wanna watch bbc on ur fone
works on my 3230 with my service provider
video streaming is done directly done fom a website which is normally a rstp:// site and not http:// ; if its possible try to get the streaming rstp address from ur network provider and manually type tat address in realplayer ; it has to work if gprs is enabled
Just came back from a Digi EDGE promotion. Those people said currently my the 3230 cannot stream the live tv is actually a firmware problem rather than the phone limitation. They say have to wait for Nokia to come out with a new firmware so that it will be compatible with their streaming.... what a pity.
Just to clarify something. I said earlier my phone network put a statement 6630 can only do video on demand streaming just like 3230 becoz currently they are only providing EDGE and not 3G. But then again it's weird also coz from the web info 6630 can do up to 236kb EDGE max just like 6230i. I wonder why the phone network still put 6630 like 3230 and some other phone.... think I better take a visit to the customer service centre and get things clear up.
im watching big bro on my 6630 but it 75p a minute. you use a shortcode number and press video call button and its there at same time exactly as on tele (channel4) but this fone"3230" will come up not enough bandwidth you need the 3g speed thats why i got 6630. This fone and 7610 could not play vids for more than 50 secs without stopping and buffering then play for 15 secs then buffer again and as you know it blocky,glad had chance within 14 days to realise and took this fone back to swap for 6630
Hmm... that's bad quality control. Well at least they r willing to change for u. :-)
Actually, this phone still can do the video on demand streaming. In fact I could access 1 out of the 3 life traffic cameras. The other 2 i can't access coz it says not enough bandwidth. I can watch some mtv clips and movie trailers. But of course it's the typical 3gp quality....lots of boxes when the image is moving fast. Just like the one u taken with the built-in video cam.
I think the reason I can't stream some of the live one is becoz they r using a bandwidth that is higher that 177kb. O well, when i got time may be I'll drop by Digi and give opinion see if they could provide a lower bandwidth version connection for slower EDGE phone.
Sorry I never try usb before. But after u install PC suite and also when u connect ur phone, won't u see a 3230 icon comes out when u go to the Nokia Phone Browser at My Computer? By right U don't need the PC Suite programs actually. U should be able to access the memory card direct. Well, at least this is so when using bluetooth.
