This review is very important for anyone who is planning to buy Nokia 6233 phone because i have myself used it and analysed it thoroughly. Nokia 6233 is basically a buisness phone, though it is publicized as Fun Phone also but it is really not. The main feature thats tempts anyone to buy 6233 is its apearance which is truely adorable... But wait!!! Whats you'll do with appearance if there are so many problems inside it. Yes Nokia 6233 has many draw backs thats are really astonishing but still they are there... I discuss them one by one.
1.The utmost problem is the back light which goes off every few seconds and you cannot, i repeat you CANNOT change backlight settings.
2.The ringtone is by default set to 'ascending mode' thus you will often miss your important calls because you hear the tone clearly after two or three bells. This setting is also cannot be changed.
3.Another very prominent problem is the INTERNAL MEMORY which is only 6MB, though it is said to be 6MB but available is only 4MB. This means you cannot recieve any file bigger than 4MB via bluetooth or infrared because this mobile does not support directly saving to memory card, which is still another big drawback.
4.The package is really bad, no data cable included.
5.The memory card included is very small i.e. 64MB thus you must buy a card of greater storage 'separately' if u want to store your songs and videos in it.
6.Though this mobile supports upto 2GB of memory card but even if you put a 1GB card in it, the phone becomes really Slow.
7.This mobile supports very old USB standard i.e. 1.1 thus rendering it really very slow.
8.Though the camera is said to be 2Mega Pixel but still it is not upto the mark, also the camera is very sensitive to slight movement of the hands thus pictures taken are often blurry.
9.Applying themes often give low memory error.
10.Camera has neither light or flash light nor it has any auto focus.
11.This mobile cannot install Java application bigger than 2MB thus this is another big limitation. I have a very good dictionary called "Viren's Dictionary" whose size it about 6MB and i was not able to install in my nokia 6233 because of this limitation.
12.The final problem is that 90% of the 6233 models bought through any package given by telecom companies, have shown hang problems. That is why this set is not recommended buy mobile review websites.
Still confused? You really don't have to be. After having used Nokia 6233 phone i have now bought sony erricsson w810i. which has the same price as 6233 but has no drawbacks mentioned above. I am really satisfied by its performance and features. This set is really cool. The package is great i.e. a USB 2.0 data cable and a memory card of 512MB is included. They weight is lighter and sound quality is much much superior than Nokia 6233.
P.S. Any queries are welcomed, u can contact me on email@example.com

problem problem problem.... whenever i change a theme,my current ring tones changes to nokia tone always...may b a firmware upgradation will do it?but its 4.91,i hope its the latest..plz help any experts
It's gallery folder creating problem while transfering files.It's letters are too small than original nokia types.Memory is comparatively meagre than other nokia phones.
yh iv compared W810i and W850i ..with 6233 and 6230i...and the nokias are much clearer and crisp sound..Sonyerricson have more BASS through there earphones...thats the only differnece...iv tested the nokias with the adpater for standard earphones..AD-46..and with the standard earphones..nokia has better sound quality...nokia win!!!
i compared my n6233+6270s music quality with k750+w800 n i found nokias music is better than
go for n6233 or any n serise but not go to sony erricson cz nokias hardware+software+music is better than sony

i just updated my firmware the other day from V4.52 to V4.91.. honestly, i only noticed few improvements like: A2DP Support, pause/stop on voice recorder and little faster than my previous V4.52.
And i also thought that updating it would erase the datas in your phone like messages, organizer & etc. but in my surprise it didn't!
even the theme was not changed.
Anyway, even my 1Gb microSD is almost full, the phone is still snappy just like before & i'm planning to buy a 2 gB soon! ^_^
and the cold here in england..makes my menu freeeze all the time...i think thats bcoz of my firware.V3.70 ...i havent upgraded it yet...neva had chance to...but still 6233 isnt that reliable if the menu freezes..??!!!
just as i praised this phone...guess wat happens.to it...my 1GB microSD sandisk asked for it to be formatted...i was like WTF...all my files are backed up (luckyily)....but i have lost 2 songs that my m8 have sent me...grrr. have to ask them to send it again......my memory card always does this...i get annoyed with 6233 when this happens....6233 SUCKS and ROCKS like socks!!!
yh very right is 1 of the best phones on earth...it has no problems and is way advanced....its a great phone...i like it....6233 ROCKS!!!
It is normal to do that. Just turn off the sleep mode and the time will remane on display.

Sorry, i've mistaken you for someone else...
Someone asked me to buy a memory card for him... thought it was you..
I'll buy you one and include it with the 1 gig micro sd and headset..
is there a way to silence the camera shutter while taking a picture or taking a video?
cant get candid shots because of the annoying sound heheh
