Yah, kinda a mistake I did here, eh? ^^ Should have waited longer.. Wait for the updates and the price to drop.
But I bought it already! Doh :p
Not just complaining I did here, want to make sure whether it just my phone broken or everyone got the same problems. Because I did claim it to Nokia Care and Professional Center at my place, but they didn't give me any solution. They didn't have another handset to compare, and they haven't got any 3230 complains because it's still brand new said them.
Look forward to hearing from N3230 owners.. ^^
Why people are always complaining that their new phone has bugs ? New launched phones always have bugs ! Never buy a new phone, wait at least three 3 months...
Good news. Now available here in thailand for 15300 bahts = 300 Euros. But I prefer to wait for the 6681...
I have these bugs with my N3230, how about you guyz?
1. Image's height is shorten a little when captured, and yes, I got bad pixels too when it transfered to PC.
2. When I go 'silent' and turn the vibrate ON, my phone won't vibrate when receiving a message/SMS. But there's no problem when receiving a call. Therefore, I can't notice an incoming message if I need to set the phone to 'silent'.
3. By far, my phone has restarted itself twice since the day I bought it a week ago. Not a big problem, hope it won't do that again.
Facts that Persian Gulf Forever stated is correct, I'm kind of dissapointed with that lacks. The PC Suite CD that didn't come with the package is dissapointing as well. Checked, downloaded, and installed PC Suite 6.41 from the Nokia official web, but doesn't work with N3230. Frustated, guyz..
Nick, did you mean the strange metal clicking noise when you pressed a button? It happens to me also. Very annoying but can do nothing.
Sean, I'm kinda worried about that too. How come Nokia didn't launch the N3230 with great promotion or advertising, while N3230 itself has some quite stunned features. And why didn't they put this phone in the 6 series which has a promising better type of class.
Please give comments, guyz. Thanks. ^^
Are you shoure you can instal QuickPoint and QuickWord on Nokia 3230?
I saw the phone today!
Ok i didnt like the fact that you can see between the keys on the keypad... very nasty!
And i didnt like the fact that the backcover didnt have a button, which would mean after several opening and closings, it would get loose and drop every once in a while!
i want to know which is the web browser in the 3230? is it opera, which is there in 6600? or just the WAP browser in the services menu
Any idea of what this would cost on Orange PAYG or Pay Monthly Tariffs?
Repeat: Nokia 3230 it's a mono mp3 device(not radio, witch is stereo), very good quality, but mono. Also it is the smallest and lighter symbian mobile (note it). Compare with 6630, only have the mp3 mono problem... becouse, who use the videoconference with 6630? NOBODY.
The rest? i prefer, the radio, de USB conection, the IrDa and the small and pretty desing... and of course, the price!!!!!
Note to 6630 users: Don't make critics about this device becouse all that.
guys news just in that the mp3 player in 6230i is supposed to be stereo player, me thinks if that mp3 player is installed in nokia 3230 that would make it a stereo player too will try it out n let u all know
but the nokia web says 'planned in the first quarter of 2005' but not available
u know wat this is strange; the phone is available and they havent even advertised it;
how strange is it?
a loud clicking sound?
does it only happen when you press those 2 keys?
you're welcome, glad i could help.
Compared to 6600? 3230 win hands down.
6600 is VGA, while 3230 has 1.2 MP camera.
hmm.. other good nokia models..
i'm into big screen phones.
6630 is good, but the price is not :P
i don’t need most of the features there,
such as document viewer for viewing word/ excel.
i just like the design.
are you interested in using CDMA?
the display & camera of 6255 is very good for a VGA.
It also has automatic flash.
6155 is an upcoming model, has 256K color & 1MP camera.
too bad there's no GSM version.
they’re flip models.
which one do you prefer? flip or candy bar?
i prefer candy bar, but after using 6255 for a while, i fell in love with it.
where the hell is it available for rs 16000....man thts cheap for a phone with so many funcs.....
When compared to the 6600, which do u think is better? the answer is....3230 is billion times better than 6600
the Answer key and menu key is making a very strange noise when I push them
Could be a fabrication error?
I should go to the shop to change it?
Also the phone is great and the price is very low for it's features
