I've had this phone for a couple of weeks, I updated from the Nokia 6600, and the 3230 is so much better. This is a great phone and you certainly won't be wishing you hadn't bought it
can anyone tell me if a larger memory card capacity improves the quality of saved videos and pictures. i have just ordered the phone but from reading the comments i wish i hadn't! =( please reply asap............cheers!!!!!!!
Hoe to change movie from DVD to friendly format for that phone? And one more question how to avoid beep before receiving phone calls? Thanks guys
Guys, just like the code mentioned earlier for mp3 playback, is there any code for increasing the volume of the alarm ? Since i've checked the site, manual, posts and what not but have still not found a way out of this problem. Please help me out of this.

hi!nokia 3230 is getting cheaper really fast here in the philippines. and bugs you mentioned from the previous posts are present but the klatest firmware of the asian version doesn't anymore have the annoying "beep" bug. it is sold gere at P17,500.00 pesos
i heard many complaints from around malaysia juz look rm1300+ starting price while u compare 7610 or 6670 others hmm issit a low end smartphone? for the masses O o lol funny masses for the budgets? ... well i juz hope it tries to make a good product of 3230 again coz ppl is complaining in my opinion make a better 3230i or something for the taking or 3230 with no problems at 90%
I agree with Ryan, Nokia is yet to replace or return my phone and its already 2 months, besides the warranty starts from the date of actual purchase. New phones are too much of a problem. Nokia service center can increase battery life for the 3230, if you live in an area with good signal strength. Can the 900mAh battery be used instead of the 750 mAh battery.
Bounce back and other games hang everytime a new level starts, I have noticed it happens with the 3230 and 6680, but not with the 6600, are there any settings in the os or for the processor to avoid this. Any software for recording more than a minute of audio
The new sensor software in Nokia is not anitvirus proof I got a virus called crepe, after using it. But nokia takes money to remove it. Can anyone tell me how to hard format the phone. *#7670 and *#7690, dont remove the virus. There is also a code to increase the mp3 volume but it drains battery, does anyone know the code.
Please visit your local nokia service center before buying any nokia's. Nokia is replacing lots of the 3230 and 6680, 6681 models. They took 2 months to replace my 3230. Just go and speak to any Nokia phone owner before buying a nokia.
Actually... after 1 month of checking up,
This phone can play in stereo... but it does not hav an equalizer or bass... so the music sounds bad...
stereo meaning it can play the right and left channels... i did a small test by editing a sound track which has right channel first... den the left channel... den both... all sounded.. meaning this phone can play stereo...
Mono refers to the playing of mostly the right channel only.. which is the same for karoke vcds...
Mono mp3 player???Meaning???I reckon the sound quality isnt that good...
3230 has irda.
don't believe everything you read in nokia website.
their explanation is not entirely accurate.
they say this phone is a 4 way joystick, when it's supposed to be 5 way.
Finally which is the firmware version which has no bugs..
can anybody post this firmware version..
Sometimes my volume control go crazy also. When this happen, I have to restart the phone. Then can control the level again. Software problem I guess.
The camera is using digital zoom. So when u zoom, definately pic quality drop. No solution I think.
Slow start-up is also typical for all symbian 60 phone I suppose... except those new ones that running 200+Mhz processor?? Anyway, u r not alone definately when it come to "slowness".
I think the noise problem caused by the brightness of screen backlight is a design problem?? Well, could somebody please inform Nokia about it. Too tired to complain to them already.
Still trying to get nice program. I too installed many which is not compatible. But all those written for 6600, 6260, 7610, 6670, 6630 should work. Those written for 3650 or 7650 normally don't.
A nice link page to many useful site at
I bought a new 3230 4 days back, nice package in all but few glitches. ( Nothing is perfect in this world !! alas)
I'm having problem regd its volume settings. i.e. sound level remains same when set at level 1 or level 10, only difference is atlevel 0. Anyone else also having the same problem?? or any solutions to it .
And well the camera if using without zoom looks good, but while zooming the image quality goes bad. Also anyone experiencing slownees while the mbile is being switched on.
An yes the noise while the brightness is not 100% is ther in my phone too :( any ideas how to get rid of it whithout 100% brightness
Thanks to all.
