hi guys, can anybody tell me tht is 3230 have change able case (Skin) ? thanks
Please anyone tell me that how is the video plaback of 3230.Is it full screen and is the quality.
to dan-andrew, about vibration in silent mode, i think i got the same problem, i have set the option and still it doesn't vibrate. So, if you don't experience this thing, what is your firmware version? is it newer or what??
here my review for nokia3230
well i agree that there is beep sound when rinor sms comes but indirectly u get alert so for me even this bug is good because i get alert thinking a call or sms is coming and also ring tones are very loud i dont agree with any body who says that ring tones are low downlaod pholyphonic ring tones and then play u will see thedifference
even visual radio is very good and best thing of this phone is its screen is very bright and much better in resolution i liked its screen and this phone even does not gets reboot well I went through bug list what people have posted if they face such problem then they can get software upgrade that will be available by next month and ur problem will get solved and think the price we pay for this phone is worth and it is a phone we have all the things in one phone I have installed 256 mb card which quite for me to have tons of ringtones and pictures and also the real sound of mp3 player comes low but when u play as ring tone it comes as very high pich sound well i feel this is good phone and rest problems will get solved as new version of software comes
for 'Arunabh Varma ':you see, i think you are a little stupid; e.g.: the phone is vibrating in sillent mode, but you have to set this option!!! And pictures can be easy adjusted!!! The only bugs: the error bip and the monophonic mp3!!!
I dont agree with last two guys...I used this phone one week and I will buy it soon.
When is in silent mode, Should be silent, no?? Even vibration make noise in a meeting, when phone is on the table...
Ring tones level are quite loud.
640\480 camera resolution is ok.
Loudspeaker is average.
mp3 I dont need. Is enough like this for me.
There are very good mp3, for who want this, in shops..
gotta agree with the last guy. This phone suck ass. MP3 really sub-standard. Slow CPU. Crappy Menu system. I have a K700I Sony and that one RULED! too bad it didn't have a memory slot. What can I say, Nokia just don't cut it. I'm gonna trade in my phone in 6mths time.
Nokia 3230: A big dissapointment. I got a black 3230 4 days back and am very unhappy with its bugs. You all know what im talking about...
~ no sms vibrate on silent mode
~ irritating beep call sound
~ bad loudspeaker
~ funny camera resolution
~ really bad mp3
~ low ringtone volume
~ and the list goes on...
All you product engineers at Nokia are good for nothing. Dont you check a model thoughroly and then release it. This clearly shows how bad Nokia's Quality Check is.
Im sorry Mr.Ceo(Hope you get to hear this..)
That`s a very good Phone,If u`ll say AMAZING or AWSOME both are not Enough for it.Use it u`ll Come to Know..............
Good Job NOKIA
Men dis fone iz da bomb. see as d thing contain many features. As soon as am able to steal some money from my daddy's vault, i dey go buy dis fone. it rocks y'all.......
Yes you can use normal rs mmc card on your 3230. I use 256 mb normal rs mmc card without problem. But they say dual voltage card spends less battery power.
Phone looks ok. Is simbian, big screen, PTT, video, 1.3 megapixel, mp3 player, mono or stereo is ok for me. Looks very solid made, I was have it, in my hand. I will buy this phone soon.....
THE phone have stupid look with excellent feature.whateva it is.its more like a baby toy then a phone.who eva has designed the phone must be a stupid just like the phone itself..DXB
the bugs so far
1) camera at normal and high resolution not proportional
2) when ringing mode (whichever profile) put to silent, SMS DOESN'T VIBRATE
3) beep comes out everytime before the phone rings. (for both calls and sms)
4) the basic resolution 640X480 quality is MUCH MUCH worse than compared to 6600's 640X480 quality!!!
5) The max and min vol of real player is SAME!
6) bluetooth messages r stored in phone memory and not in memory card. solution for this is to install a file called MsdriveE which u can find it at any symbian website.after installating it my phone stored messages on memory card. but once i remove my memory card from phone it again stores messages on phone memory and then after installing a new memory card , even on insatlling MsdriveE the messages are stored on phone memory. i will soon find its solution u guys 2 try 2 find it.
I have this mobile phones from sale and other models. I have a big lot received from Dubai. If is anyone interested to buy just contact me at : firstname.lastname@example.org
I have it on Orange too! To change the settings on the first screen, go to: Settings>Phone>Standby and you can choose which function the left and right keys are assigned to.
I love this phone, not really bothered by the bugs, other than the camera one, that needs fixing! As for the beeps before calls, it's a so what really.
Hey anyone knows that wherther i can use an normal Rs MMC card instead of a Dual voltage RS MMC on the 3230. Would it spoile the phone or create any problem to the downloading process cos dual voltage seems alot more expensive..
