good decent mobile with quite a handy features. Only thing is a bit stiff numeric buttons
cant think ths is a phone really ths is not a phone this is box with loud speakers
K750i/K550i have CLEARER Imaging, since they have Autofocus and Flash.....
6233 delivers CLEAR Images though..
nokia now gives 128mb micro sd card instead of
the new firmware update or mobile purchased since jan 08 is much less prone from freezing.
its headphone clarity is better than 6300
And the image quality in the daylight is better than 6300,n70,k750,k550
The Nokia 6233 (and its twin, the 6234, exclusive to Vodafone) is a 3G phone with looks very similar to the old 6230i. It's a good-looking phone with an attractive stainless steel finish and a practical design with a good keypad. It's a nice size, and not too heavy for a 3G phone, albeit heavier than most 2G phones. The phone is user-friendly with a new Series 40 interface with an animated 3D menu and graphics. Some things have been updated, but the 6233 still encapsulates the user-friendliness for which Nokia is famous.
The 6233 is a jack-of-all-trades with no outstanding features, but ticking enough boxes to make it appealing to a broad market, much like the old 6230i. It has a decent 2 megapixel camera (no flash unfortunately), a music player that can handle a range of formats and a stereo FM radio. A nice feature is the use of twin speakers to give a 3D surround effect. The sound quality is good, but not as good as when using stereo headphones. The 6233 comes with a 64 Mbyte memory card which is enough to get started, and this can be upgraded to 2 Gbytes if you're serious about storing music on your phone. Bluetooth connectivity is supported, as well as USB and infrared. There's also a good choice of 3D games, including a multiplayer option. Web browsing is fast, thanks to EDGE, and battery life is very good.
The 6233/6234 is a 3G phone designed with mass market appeal. It lacks a video calling function, which is a strange and surprising ommission in a 3G phone. Reception is not always that great - a common problem with 3G phones, but the 6233 seems particularly prone to this, which makes us suspect a hardware/firmware issue, and it's a phone that displays an annoying tendency to freeze, reset or randomly shut down. For these reasons, we cannot really recommend it. A much better phone is the Nokia 6300 (not 3G), or if you want a 3G phone try the Sony Ericsson V630i.
I bought this phone 6233 2 days back. It Rocks! i installed Yahoo Go 2.0 and GMAIL and they work great.

the clocks may be of higher flash version than
supported in the mobile. that's why the clocks are not displayed
Raj Kumar, 26 May 2008I must congratulate to all for sharing valuable experiences and suggestions. I'm using 6233 ph... moreAre the themes that you are using in the 240x320 resolution ?? If not,then it must be the reason why. Also, some themes have an incompatibilty issues like when you apply a theme that has a 176x208 resolution on a phone that has a 240x320 resolution, the phone might not work properly for that case.
There was something earlier about converting files to 3gp format... imo mp4 format is a lot better quality than 3gp ;)
I must congratulate to all for sharing valuable experiences and suggestions. I'm using 6233 phone for last 2 years. whenever I apply some particular themes(such as clocks, or animated pictures) some works very well and some doses not, means front screen does not show clocks and next label is ok. Please help me what should I do. I would be grateful to all.
GREAT!!!...really GREAT PHONE..... Feature rich phone for 7000 bugs(Indian rupees)... much better than N70(Rs 9000)... compact stylish design... superb sound quality(even with standard stereo headset provided,u'll get more when upgraded)... stereo loud speakers..superb picture quality(day light)...high resolution video recording(640*480).. 3g..damnn superb display(240*320)..smooth keypads... better sound quality while calling...upto 2Gb of external memmory with no change in speed and performance(N70 will get stuck even with 1G card)... Is these are enough 4 u?..then go buy it.....I'm using it...
Aside from the Nokia HS-45 and HS-28 headsets, you can also try the Sennheiser HD205 headset. It's really great! I have tried using it at the Nokia Store being used together with the Nokia 5310. It costs of about Php 2,000+.
How can you extend the ring-time on a Nokia 6233 - at present it goes staight to voice mail
