thanks for the reply sir coolpda and sirmigs about having to be able to silent the cam sound hehehe
hmm so the version 5 lets you turn the annoying cam sound ei? Im from the Philippines and I guess ill be buying either a 6233 with version 3 firmware or with the newest version 5 firmware hehehehe
This phone is gr8 even though it dont have any special music software like walkman phones the sound from headset is very good and has excellent bass effect the music output is gr8 from both speakers and headsets however i find problem only with camera pics are not good in low light condition but video on the other hand is good in any condition the walkman phones can beat this only in terms of camera but only camera nothing else
if you bought your phone from an authorized nokia dealer then it should be covered by a warranty. That would include repairs and upgrades of the unit. So just bring it to a nokia service center and have the firmware upgraded with no cost.
The difference between a walkman phone and a music phone?
Hmmm.... I THINK:
1. A walkman phone is built to be used with an earphone. so better sound quality when you plug it to your ears.. after sometime you become deaf. hahahhaha
2. Like what 786 said, The battery life. I think wlakman phones are built to last longer use.
But actually... i believe that mobile companies just try to find synonyms for those the titles that other companies put on their products.. if one has a walkman phone.. thge other would name thier product music phone.. another company could name their product radio phone.
there is a big difference on the battery on these Nokia phones the SE Walkmans last much longer for music..Nokias dont - thats a big diffeerence with these and walkman phones
there is no difference between this and a Walkman SE the only difference is the music player on walkmans its difference got the playlist but so has 6233 and most walkmans sort out songs in albums,artists,tracks, etc but most of the new Nokias do that now so i see NO point in buying a Walkman phone there practically USELESS!
well ph is perfect. but main drawbak of dis ph is, its not symbian set. so nokia mus should make Nokia 6233 wid symbian facility, then i'll buy it ;-)
Bluetooth was working fine, but now phone won't pair. The Nokia 6233 phone can't find active devices, yet those devices can find the phone? Is the bluetooth only in send mode? Id there a way to turn receive back on?
Mokia 6233 on/off button breaks really easy, but I found over the last twenty years that Nokia phones have nasty habit of not being robust and after a year usually something will break.
I get reaaly annoyed that something that cost so much can be so poorly made.
I work solely on Apple Mac. How do I connect my phone to Mac when there is only PC software? Any ideas? Why no MacOsX software, Nokia?
What's the difference between a Walkman phone and a music phone (MP3 player)? Does the Walkman have more features?
I have version 04.52 but I really can't see any reason to upgrade...knock on wood.
I've had the phone for about 3 months and I have a full 256mb card in it.I regret I didn't buy a 1gb one in the first place...
My only complaint is that the video-camera could be better in low-light conditions, but there really isn't any problem. It just shows vertical lines going back and forth along the screen. The pics in good light conditions are just fine !
A question now:
Do they actually charge you for the upgrade ?
What's new with the latest (5.10 ?) firmware ?
I've written something about firmwares..
you might wana check it out:
im wondering why some people are having problems with the files and memory of the phone.
I've been sending, receiving (thru bluetooth), and using/playing large files. most specially video and music files.. but i don't encounter any problem. If the files that i receive are larger than the internal memory, it is automatically saved in the external memory (micro sd). I've been also watching dvd movies using my phone. the only problem i encounter here is the battery life.
why oh why oh why...
you need a usb cable charger.. if your from the philippines... you can buy an all-in-one usb charger from CDRking.. for only P100.00 (less than $3)
As far as i know there's no 6233i.. and if they make one.. i hope it will come with a front camera.
the 6233 was launched during the last quarter of 2005.
I was using v3.++ (can remember the version) and i was able to turn the camera sounds off.
go to camera>options>settings>camera sounds> off
The latest firmware here in the Philippines is 4.91. other countries have higher/newer firmware versions.
if ever a higher version would be available.. i guess only nokia repair centers have it. coz its not yet available online via the nokia software updater (NSU)
have your phone's firmware upgraded.. must be a bug..
the current version is 5.10, thats what i have. yes, you can turn off the camera shutter sound. other than that i use it on a daily basis with the Nokia headset BH-900 and its great, much better than with 6230.
Hi.. I got this phone few days back.. Its a great phone for the price but I had one problem..
Pics taken under normal light condition have red green blue pixels at specific spots.. They were at the same place in every picture..
I got the set replaced & the new set is showing the same problem...
The RGB pixels are there in every pic and are easily visible in moderate light conditions.. And Clearly visible in dark conditions..
Are other 6233 users facing such a problem?
Looking forward to your opinions..
Hi, just got my 6233 op. software upgraded from v3.70 to v4.91. I am facing a problem. While creating an sms, when you click on "Add" to add the recepients no. & then click "Open Log", ..the phone hangs & restarts on its own. Does this happen with everyone, or the problem is just with my phone.
Further, I emailed the nokia care guys, they told me that i would have to upgrade the software to v5.10. ..is that version out??
what its latest firmware 4.91 or 5.10 . n how i upgrade my firmware?
