I have had this phone since 10 months when i was planning for either this or 6230i, but moved on to this one for two reasons:
1. Bigger screen
2 Series 60 Architecture (since i planned to develop some applications on Series 60)
The problem i can see in the phone are the following:
1. Sound quality is not good for some MIDI and MP3 files but in WAV and AAC the sound quality is better.
2. it gets restarted occasionally, and it hangs alot.
FM is good, but could be better.
Camera is not good, if the picture is taken in proper light then the chances of it coming out nice are more, it has night vision but sometimes in darkness that also is no help.
Bluetooth and Infrared are great.
once me and a cousin were trying to catch his phone (SE K700i) via Bluetooth device, we had boths Bluetooth on and the device picked mine up first and for his we had to try some other way.
Installation of games, ringtones, themes, softwares etc. is very easy through Nokia PC Suite.
The Set itself is quite sturdy, i have dropped it many times even on tiles and marble and then also nothing happened.
For people going for it, i would say also check out "Nokia 6230i" and "Nokia E50"
This phone is the worst to own.I bought mine in October 2005 n it hardly last me a year.I`ll have to buy myself a new one now.It s got a software problem n the phone keeps restarting for no reason at all.The sound clarity is pathetic n it sounds like those old radio s which people used to be geared on to.When a cricket match was going on.The back cover is too loose n dont be surprised if it comes off in ur hand if u take it out of ur pocket.The photo editor does nt work n If ur planning to buy this phone better get ready for frequent trips to the service centre.THIS PHONE SUCKS BIG TIME!!!!!!
I bought it in Aug 2006. Since 2-3 wks i noticed a irritating low buzzing sound when the backlight is on. This does not occur when restarting the phone, only after the nokia logo appears then the buzzing sound appears and continues every time the backlight is on. My firmware is of Jan 2006. Can this problem resolve on upgrading the firmware? CAN ANYONE HELP?
its really the best phone in nokia series60.its fell in water for 2 times and each time with out need to repair ,also it start to work again after 24 hores.its the best phone and if bue it you never ashmade from youre buying.
To all Nokia 3230 users, would you help me on how to install the MSV DRIVE in a right way... Because I want my 3230 to save all messages in memory card... I already downlaod the MSV DRIVE application, and my problem is, I don't know how to install it because when I tried to install it, I don't know if I done the right process... Please help me... Thanks in advance!
The phone is so great,i bought mine at dec 2006 and wow, i have been enjoying it since then.
This phone looks very elegant indeed, but the
sound clarity SUCKS!!The ringtones played aare so.....'92 toyota cressida tape like!And talking about the MMC slot, if you push the mmc in it in haste, the pin breaks and to hell with managing without mmc that too when the phone memory is 6 mb only and messages are stored in it,not the mmc(no option too).The video?.....*U*KS man!More like few photos being seen fast thats it!
And when you hold the phone near the push to talk button, the signal goes down to 1 point.And once the phone falls from your hand, dont expect to get full signal for at least 3 weeks, and then all of a sudden the reception gets better!....Only God knows how this gets Auto repaired.
1 more thing.....I bet you that the back cover will get so loose in about 5 months that when u put ur hand in the pocket, only the cover comes out!!!
Overall........its better to own a 1100 than this peice of junk.
This a Good Phone. It is the Best Phone on its series i.e 6600,6630 etc,, It has Fm Radio Also, And before buying i was afraid because i had read some bad comments about this phone, like it Hangs Up, restart automatically, It has Mono Mp3 Player Sound.. we i can asnwer these Questions.
1 = Since i bought this phone, it didnt hanged up yet, im usinng 1 gb card and its working fine my software version is 3.6 or something
2 = It Do No Restart Automatically, It will only restart if ur phone is infected by Virus
3 = If u will use Original Nokia Headphone then u will get the best Sound Quality on Mp3 player etc. Im Using Nokia 3250 Headphones and the Sounds Rocks...
This is the Great Phone.. Recommended.!!!
This model is having many good features. if u need FM radio, 1.3mega pix, bluetooth etc u will get in this one. but this is very slow. i bought it 10 days back. and it got restarted 2 times automatically n i had 2 restart it once bcoz it became very slow. so please consider this b4 u buy it.
why some people say n3230 sucks?... it's not sucks it's nice.. for me this phone is the best s60 cellphoe manufactured by nokia..
It has all the features you need.. and it's an affordable phone!!!!

you lot-i want u to write down the size of ur rs-mmc dat ur currently using.id like to find out how big a memory this phone cn support.the biggest ive heard so far is 512MB but there is this thing abt voltage/dual-voltage? issit going to haf any effect on the phone if the dual volt is different?
help me out here ppl
Yes it can be possible but i recommend u to use 256mb, like mine, so that the fone wont run slow. The type of card this fone use is rs-mmc.
I m a new user of ur so cute and attractive model 3230 nokia. i feels so flexible to use that. Can I use 1Gb memory card in this phone. And Whats size of memory card can I use in Nokia 3230 model. plz back me details as soon as possible. Thanks for so easy cooperation.
hi,can anyone pls tell me,how can i receive data which directly gets stored in my phone's memory card because there is no option of saving or receiving data directly in the memory card or if it is possible to increase the phone memory or extend it, As we can not transfer the messages from the phone memory to the memory card
Why didnt u test the fone before u buy it. Maybe the fone u buy isnt the original one. Well. What a waste for u then. For me i rarely have any problems with this fone. Sms n call alert is fine. I have installed over 20 symbian programs with this fone and all works fine.
This phone is sucks! it gave me a shock when sms or call alert ringing. i have been tried so many thing to avoid the warning tone. it made me shock! i hate it. the sound quality is good, but after i take a picture, it took time to process it. the video also good but a little "stuck". for those who still in dilema in searching Symbian phone, do not buy this phone. the processor also weak. slow responces. hate, hate, hate it!!!
