Hey there...3230 is really fantastic...i have one problem though...I can't send sms for the last 2 months..I've tried turning it on and off but nothing happened..how do I fix it? thank you very much and all the best...
First off all i thanks to Tech for you all advises. I use your advises and this makes positif results and i agree all off your oppinions.
if you want recieve your inbox messages to MMC please install MSVDRIVE to your 3230. this is small application only 1 kb.
well this phone has a problem with its battery life. when used together with its memory card, the battery tends to drain faster than without the memory card. sigh...
I readed your comments about the speaker on the phone,i agree its not loud,but listen if you are not satisfied buy you aoriginal nokia stereo headset it will rocks.The speakers are 0,5 Wats and its very useful.
Hi! I am from Singapore! Nokia 3230's camera great! Can play MP3 but sometime cannot control volume... Performance abit slow foe me! Always hang... Need to upgrade software right? I not using 3230 now...
Is it true that firmware update to the latest version can improve the mp3 sound quality? Beacuse i think this fone's sound is too bad even when i compared it with 6600 or 6630
I am using 3230 last six months.
How to change Inbox messages memmory from Phone memmory to card memmory.
If any one know this pls let me know
Thanks in advance
Viking MP3 player does not have any issues in my 3230. However I still prefer WMA Plus 1.2 It allows to play .wma (windows media audio) files. WMA files can be compressed to 1/5th of the size of a MP3. The quality diminishes but since the 3230 speaker is small hence it makes no difference. I do have some .mp3 songs also. Reducing the size to .wma is good because 1 MP3 file needs 6 MB encoded at 128kbps or higher. But a 32kbps .wma file needs only 1 to 1.2 MB. Hence a 512 MB RSMMC Card can hold close to 470-480 .wma songs !!! The idea is to listen to music. For quality music you have your music system. Usually I have a good collection of soft songs which are melodious. Besides 3230's mono speaker produces soft sound because it kills high shrill treble sound found in 6680/6681/N70 etc) and because its speaker cannot play high frequency treble. This makes listening to soft melodious songs even more enjoyable on the 3230. Nokia may have thought that it is giving less in this phone, but you got it wrong Nokia. It's really great. I feel reluctant to exchange my 3230 for a higher end Nokia. I may buy a higher end Nokia later when their prices come down to "actual and real" prices, but certainly I am not going to give my 3230's soft sounds and multi function features and great color / saturation / brightness ratio eben in 65K colours.
For Camera softwares, if you install any other camera softwares then the original Nokia camera application ceases to function. Hence I removed all of such camera applitions. I use Photorite SP 5.2.2 which functions without any problem in the 3230. It has 8x zoom also and some funny lenses and mirrors effects which is really great. It lets the nokia default camera application also work simultaneously. Which is how it should be.
Installation of too many softwares sometimes leave default Nokia applications inactivated, which is not recommended because the default Nokia apps are meant to do their tasks perfectly. So if you find some default Nokia apps stop functioning, then immediately remove those apps.
I like that people are going in for this phone by reading these reviews. It's money well spent which is what matters most, but only if you know how to handle a smart phone, okay?
H i m Abdullah, there is a problem with my 3230.i hav bought this fone last week.it use to restars regularly.But than i Upgraded it firmware version to 5.06. but after that i has restarted 3 times.but from 3 days it has't restarted.Plz anyone tell me what to do.Do i sale it.Plz i m in troble.Bye
Can u tell me the site 2 get camera fx 2.50 working on 3230. Can u also tell me what is the maximum time of 3230's batery.Bye
Get PhotoRite SP v5.2.5 and CameraFX Pro v2.5. They are among the best camera programs which run in my 3230.
I wish to voice out that I have been using a 1Gb memory card for about 3 months now and I didn't find problem so far. Before this I used to have 512mb for about 8 months without problem too.
Nokia 3230 is one of the best phones avilable. Fisrtly its NOKIA and it's very easy to use and processing is also smooth. So people go for NOKIA 3230 instead of any other phone even 7710
Thats it. im getting this one.. the review i found in this page is quite impressive there is no doubt left about this mobile.. im going to get it. I was thinkin bout RS MMC i hope i can use it normally with a 2gb one, w/e thanx 4 the review and opinions 2.. See yaa! Rgrds from Peru
first off all i have to say to use 512mb mmc or higher is not a problem for 3230. i still use 512mb.
i agree all off your oppinion you say about 3230. but i have some questions
1) i installed viking mp3 player 3.50 (wich you recommend me) but it makes some problems when it plays 3 or more mp3
2) camera utility softwares (such as flexycam, albiocam, lenses, photografer etc.) cant work in my phone. they installed but not works.
please say me some advises. can you use this programs or like this
its very beatiful mobile but i want know if ican record songs from fm radio
hi every body.
this is my first blog on this page ,though i am following every single e comments posted here by all 3230 users accross the globe for the last couple of months. then even reading all those comments posted by numerous users, i thought of trying my luck and decided to bring this phone for myself . well, i thing my gamble paid off very successfully as i got a wonderful phone.
this phone is truely amazing.ever since i bought it about three months back , it never got hanged for a single moment. i have inserted a 1 GB card off late which is occupied with 937MB space with 134 mp3 songs, 56 music videoes ,20 games (beside the phone memory ones). 85 themes ,40 sound files . more than 200 high resolution pics and STILL IT ROCKS!!! it never get slow down , can play 8 softwire systems simulteniously with ease.
camera is awesome ,video is not bad . mp3 sound good, fm radio once again crystal clear.
have a low ringing tone volume though . its ok with me since i dont expect everyone around me to dance around with the ringtone of my phone .it vibrates even in silent mode properly.
all features are up to date. you can download lot of softwires like
i have installed softwires like KEYLOCKER( which ended my worries of how to avail one touch key lock system in my phone)
beside this i hv installed FSCALLER,ANTI VIRUS,SMART MOVIES, WOWSCREEN,CAMPRO,FEXPLORER(you can delete any installed unwanted softwire from here . have support files of each system , same as a computer),IMAGEPLUS,SMSLOVE,SPYCALL,ULTRA MP3, CAMERAM,SNAPSHOTS,ANOTHER STEREO MP3 PLAYER WITH GRAPHIC EQUALISERS. in games i have VOLLEYBALL, TRIZ,S-TRIS,SNAKE,SKYFORCE,TENNIS,SKYFORCE,MICROPOOL, POWERBALL,RISING,PLANET ZERO,LOCK AND LOAD,MB2,FIRE STORM,FIREBALL,BOUNCE,ANGELFISH,MAGIC BROWSER, HUNTER,PRINCE-SOT beside them i have three games which comes with the phone itself . they are AGENT-V .RALLY PRO,WARRIOR.all softwires work properly . my phone memory has more than 300 phone nos saved. this is really a cool smart symbian phone which absolutely has no hang ups which does not creat a large hole in your pocket while bying it but provides you with so many stand out features within this price limit. i think its absolutely non comparisible with any of the phones of the same fraternity. thats precisely my consent. on the other hand with its thin body and sleek looks it is quite adorable and best in transit.
the tones are low but loud enough to get noticed of, inside a crowded train . maybe not as loud as 6270. its no doubt a good buy in all sence if you are looking for a smart phone with lots of feature in a limited price range.
the softwire of my phone is V 4.0526.2.I didnt upgraded it yet.didsnt felt of doing it either.
lastly i would like to add that with so much things included still in my phone memory card 42 MB SPACE IS FREE!!!!
i have a gprs connection which enables me to browse advanced gprs system without softwire upgradation at all.
i am quite obsessed with my 3230 which i think is allready understood by the reader while reading this review.
i cant blame it on myself for this.,anybody at my place having such an entertaining phone would have done same i believe........
