3230 definately doesn't sound clear when u put loudest volume. Lots of distortion. In fact most handphone produce distortion when speaker volume put full blast. We are talking about having volume set at a level where distortion minimum. I'm not sure what file u play but I did tested personally 2 similar AAC file. Very big difference. 6230i may sound a little distorted if put full volume... but then again, it's already too loud! When set at decent volume level, the frequency response of the whole audio spectrum is way clearer. May be the sampling rate is higher for 6230i. Anyway, I wonder if u r the only person ever say 3230 sound clearer than 6230i so far.
The BEEP b4 sms and call is standard for all 3230 all over the world. This issue has been addressed here many many times. There has been news that a new firmware has remove this BEEP thing. But so far, Nokia in my country (malaysia that is) has yet come out with any fix. No way to disable it without new firmware upgrade.

well, here in dubai it cost 1549 Dhs., so mga 20,000 pesos jan sa pinas..
basta, dis PHONE is the BEST!
but im really, really trying my best to be thrifty so i could buy the Sony Ericsson k750i..its d best! wheew! with 2.0 mega pixel camera, its simply the best!
The 6230i is stereo but when u turn the volume up it gets crackly, where as the 3230 is clearer in that regards..It beeps before a message and call but it doesnt bother me.. Dust will get on the LCD eventually, same as every other nokia that ive had..But to be honest i have not seen a perfect fone yet..
The Sony Ericsson Z800 looks nice to me....
hmm... how can i save the message in memory card automatically? how can i enable the silent profile with vibration and lastly how can i stop the hp from self-rebooting?
i myself liked 3230!mostly on it's physical features.but i just have one question,is it normal on 3230 that whenever somebody txt you or call you,it beep before the message alert tone or it beep before the ringtone?if so,how can i eliminate such feature,is their a way of turnig it off?
Read back all the posting I posted and some "correspondance" with some nice friend here. There are a lot of infos and answers around. ;-)
I do like my 3230 I will give 2nd or 3rd thought if asked to trade for a 6230i. But am I reading it wrong or wat? 3230 sound clearer than 6230i? No way! R u having a defective 6230i? Anybody with a decent ear will know the big difference when both play the same musics or songs!
Don't tell me they produce 3230 in different part of the world with different quality speaker.... btw where r u from?
Geee, u went to dotsis using ur phone? Anyway, most of the file in dotsis are either in zip format or rar format. U need to unzip it in PC before transfer to phone. So no point use ur phone to download.
As for how come owaz get 3bytes file when using ur phone, that I'm not sure... I only know if it happen when u use a PC, most likely it's becoz of any download manager. Better disable the download manager before download or bypass it.
it's great! but the keys bellow the screen are a bit hard to press, anybody knows how to keypad lock, iguess if they don't have it it's because the buttons are to hard, no need for keypad lock.
Hi can u tell me where to get the 3rd party software from like the remote control and any other cool featers? PLEASE! lol Cheers
Hi! I registered with dotsis. But when i try to download something with opera or netfront in my phone they download .php files with only 3 bytes of size and so .Can anyone help and how can i download using phone please help
Yoz guys..A cure for mono mp3 player in 3230..u can download an mp3 application from dotsis..i've tried it and d sound quality is so much better..louder..and 1st time stereo sound is comin out of 3230 thru headphones..
Don believe me? well..since we can listen to radio in stereo thru headphones, y nt mp3 files? haha
There is absolutely nothing at all wrong with this phone, its fantastic. The beep is no problem for me i an fix it later on. As for the dust i had the 6230i and i hade dust on the LCD on the first day, i had to keep cleaning it then i got sick of it, as for my 3230, had it for 4 weeks and not a single spec of Dust. 6230i kept restarting and 3230 not a single prob..I reckon 3230 heaps Better..As for Stereo sound ive had them both and the 3230 sound's clearer to me...:)
Got my Nokia PC Suite 6.5 from
It's about 22mb though and work only with WinXP
Remote Control Program?? Go to that place I told u earlier. Look under bluetooth/infrared tools section. I'm using the one posted by someone called hubmobile.
What a pity, today the Nokia Care Road Show reach my hometown (Sabah, Malaysia). Went there and got them to clean my screen dust. I asked them if there's a solution to the dust problem and the answer is no. Was hoping there's new firmware but as per them, my current firmware V3.0510.0ch (I presume the "ch" means with chinese support version) is oredi the latest... so no new firmware for me. I ask them about the beep they said they know lot of people complain about it but currently still no new firmware to correct that yet. Oh well...just wait and see what will happen in few months time....
