I am about to buy one...
I read about the volume control thingy from the nokia official website...
go find nokia 3230 at www.nokia.com.sg
den click on phone demo.. there says that there is a volume control key on the side of the phone..
Regarding the memory card problem..
the card must hav been corupted when u take in and out of the slot..
but after reformatting on the com, it works.
however... the card have conflicts with ur phone.. since ur phone can read ur friend's ... why not exchange.. or if ur card still has warranty.. u can repair or get a new one...
however, u cannot repair this problem at nokia care using the warranty card... cos it is a 3rd party software which nokia states that they will not be responsible for any damage done to the phone... but nokia can reformat ur phone/ or upgrade the software..
then, ur phone will be able to read the same card again
What brand is your MMC card? It could be a compatibility issue... I've heard some intermitten problems with Kingston RS-MMC card and Nokia's phone. May be you should try to reformat the card with yoru phone? (I hope 3230 has this function)
This phone is sooo cool. i got it a few days ago but i got 1 problem. I got a rc-mmc 256mb and than i insert it in my phone it worked but than i ejected it and inserted it back again becoz i need to change my sim card, the rs-mmc card says file corupted in my phone but i can see all my files using a card reader on my computer. i tried to formet it on the computer and it was ok (no problem). i insert it back to the phone but it still says file corupted n it doesn't allow me to formet. I tried other rs-mmc cards n it worked in my phone without any problem. The 256mb card that says file corrupted worked in my frens 7610 n my frens 256mb worked in my phone. Than is it the phone or card problem???? Thank You For any advice and comment.
are u using a 3230? if so, please verify your claim that there're control volumes on e side of the phone
i had tried this phone, the phone feature is great, faster downloading speed, with infrared, radio fm , 1.3megapixer photo taking, but i juz like to commend on only 32mb slotcard, not USB wire attached and the phone button is very difficult to press when u use.
I am from Singapore..
anyway... nokia phones are not meant to be used as mp3 players... if u wan quality audio... search for mp3 players( i recomment creative) ... or wait for the Sony Ericsson W800i... which is designed as an mp3 player too..
This phone is value for its price... if u buy though starhub with pland and hubber bonus..
it is only S$298
Tell me a phone with this functions with a cheaper price pls... ( mostly comparing with other nokia phones)
Someone asked about Nokia 6630 and 3230.. u can go to the nokia official website and use the phone comparison function...
But if there are details that are left out..
u can ask me ...
hi alghe 21....
u said u bought ur cell in dubai..
how much u bought it for..is it with warranty..
2 days and a half for a Simbyan OS.7, is not that bad..plus a very light display!
With my 6630 I charge battery every day...
About the rest, no comment. Each one knows better what is good for him.
where did you buy your 3230 from? what region are you from that you have volume buttons on e side of your 3230.
TO THOSE ASKING ABOUT THE SOUND QUALITY OF THE MP3 AGAIN N AGAIN, HECK! can you bloody go read the previous postings!?
You're just telling us how educationally-challenged you are! Can't you read?
i don't get it. what do you mean by voice dialling is non-existant?
i've tried mine & it works perfectly.
which part of the voice dialling that you find confusing?
the setting? or is it when you want to make a call using voice dial?
could you clarify, maybe i can help.
I think you people should stop asking about MP3 sound! It is bad, period! It is mono, get it? Please stop asking about the sound again.... I am flooded with this very same information
the volume control button is not on the side. i've tried & it didn't work, it's for PTT button.
the volume control is on the joystick.
The MP3 sound is bad, radio is goo. I've never had the Ngage but the 5510 - and it doesn't even come close to MP3 sound quality. Read my other review for more info.
I've just bought this phone and my Goodness what problems.First, of all let me give you the good points: Its light (lighter then the 66 series),its great for design and the buttons are fairly functional, however better placement of the menu key could have been made.The radio works great wonderful sound quality and I transferred by bluetooth a music video I had which was fine in terms of quality, visually, as good as the Motorola A835 (the phone I had before-not the best made phone but functional for media and music applications), at this point in the store I am ecstatic with the 3230.But here I did err, these all prove to be a red herring. Sure, I was an idiot to turn down the 14 day money-back guarantee in favour of £50 refer a friend cash back offer. But hey everything had been checked before buying right? WRONG!! First of all the good sound quality is only restricted to the radio (as you can recall I tested). For mp3's, video and everything else its crap - but at the time of the test I assumed that all app's would sound the same, well you know what they say about assumption.... Basically it has a tin-like sound that sounds like you're listening to an old transistor radio - and in fact hurts my ears!The video seems mediocre after much use, but is exponentially amplified to crapness with the bad sound.And this all I discovered after buying on the net a datacable, a 512 MB RS-MMC, an USB reader, and a leather pouch. With my Motorola, everything was included with the package. Granted my Motorola, had problems with the battery, it scratched easily and occasionally would crash (but this was after dropping it numerous times) - at that time I thought he reason I had those problems was my frequent use of the media app's so I was content, but looking for improvement. My goodness was this a step back!I can't see myself using this phone for anything more than the radio. Oh, and the bluetooth is its other saving grace. But there is a catch again, with only 8MB internal (shared) memory, after you take into account messages, contacts, a couple of pics and its very useless Fireplayer, PV Video Player and every other application that is useless because it uses sound, there is literally less than 3MB's left to use.Thats a problem for two reasons:
When using bluetooth transfer to the mobile is to the internal (shared memory) so anything over 3MB is too big. And this means less memory for the phone, so it tends to crash a lot and takes almost a minute to start-up. There are also very noticeable delays when using the menu and a severe delay when using the camera.
And about the camera, quality is again mediocre to pathetic - the Sony Ericsson S700 is miles ahead (but then we are talking about Sony...). Pathetic because in slightly dark situations quality is completely lost (e.g. a cloud covering the sun on a sunny day etc.).Point is the picture quality is not as crisp as most others 1.3 megapixel phones.
Voice dialling on this phone is non-existant I have tried countless times to do this, I have been through the manual and read the help on this function, but to no avail - I just can't understand it! Battery time is fair but definitely not even close to what you would expect. I get at the moment standby time of 2 and half days,with about five short phone calls, using the bluetooth functions and radio.
Honestly I am trying to be positive with this phone because I have bought too many accessories know for this (in my haste), but all I like is its looks and the radio, even supermodels have more going for it than this phone!Well I will try to sell this piece of crap as quickly as possible, any takers for this?? In fact, I'll throw in my left leg to medical research just to take this off from me! Good luck if you have one, bought one, been given one, or found or stolen - because the jokes will be on you - BEWARE!
Read better what we have post about N3230.
I recomand this one. It is a complete phone.
i just bought my 3230 last week, im here staying here in dubai, anyway. as of now, its really good and doing great!
i just dont like the thing that when i use my phone frequently, i need to charge the battery daily... and besides, the mp3 player is mono, the camera is just 3x zoom, the video player is not on full screen, but the games are great! huhhh!
im really thinking if i should switch my phone to 6630, because, i really love its design, 6x zoom, better internal memory, hot slot for mmc for easy switching, but it doesnt have an mp3 player, infrared port..
so, could you all help me guys, to pick the better one, should i be contented with my 3230 or switch it to 6630, im really hoping that you could help me guys as soon as possible...
if possible, pls do list, all the advantages & disadvantages of 3230 & 6630...
I know of a program,
Just go www.yahoo.com and search for it.
Thanks Small Expert. On playing d vdo file, gives just 2 options : pause and stop. I am gonna hunt for some softwares and will post them here for others to use.
I read about the GSM thingy some where..
cannot recall now..
but it says something about diff countries using diff GSM network... so.. there are diff models...
Take the Sony Ericsson W800 for example..
W800i is for Singapore and some other countries... W800c is for china... cos china uses a diff network
