Overall a great phone. Have been usign this phone for over a month.
1. Big screen
2. Good, clear, high res tft screen.
3. Great and loud stereo speakers.
4. Good battery life.
5. Buttons have good textile feel.
6. Looks good.
7. Good 2MP camera.
1. Transferring through bluetooth doesn't allow multiple files at one go.
2. Problems with using bluetooth headset BH-800.
3. Still not exactly a light phone.
4. Camera will hang if you change modes and pause then continue. Camera will also hang in some other situations. (technically ok if you use it slowly)
5. Camera has slow focus.(Not a problem if you hold the camera button n camera steadily for over 2 seconds.)
6. Totally games unfriendly. Using the movement button (square 4 directional button) is too close to the left n right action buttons.
7. NSU does not have the latest firmware updates.(Not a problem if you're will to travel to the nearest Nokia Care Centre)
8. Radio requires the headset. Would be better if it could give a choice to blast through the speakers
I heard there will be more improvements to 6233 in firmware v4.92 like A2DP features? Looking forward to more features in this great phone.
Hi my name is Mike, I read a comment about getting ur firmware updated to a 4.52 with the nokia 6233 handset. but how? Did u buy the Nokia 6234 vodafone version. Because I kno there is a compatible firmware update for that device. If you could get back at me about this that would be great.
I've had this phone for 3 months now and i love the classy look of the black contrasted with the aluminium surround. (I originally saw the silver one and did not like it at all)
I shopped around for ages and im completely happy with my puchase decision. This phone has everything i could ever wish for, except video calling which i dont use anyway.
Ive upgraded to a 1GB MircoSD so ive nullified any need for a mulitimedia player.
Only issues are, the battery life, randomly crashing when i put large file videos to 'view full screen', laggy photo capture, and the plastic screen strength. Ive chipped it a few times including one that looks like a car windscreen chip. However i think the chips are due to me using a hard cover and getting crap sandwiched inbetween
Another thing is the build quality. The phone doesnt feel as sturdy as my last phone (Sony k700i) it creaks and just doesnt feel very drop friendly.
All in all, its a great phone.
I couldn't imagine that there's a better phone (features and appearance) out there for the price.
Tried the updater on my phone. But it says NO UPDATES AVAILABLE.
I thought the updater would be able to update the nokia 6233 using the nokia 6234.
I tried.. didn't work.. learning experience.
better luck next time!
I'm back (seems no one missed me.. hahaha)
Hope you had the best of the Holidays.... Happy New Year!!!

Has anyone tried using a 2GB Micro SD card with this phone, and has it worked seamlessly without any problems? I'll really like to know. Thanks
the ringtone is not actually in ascending ring mode, only for the first 4 seconds the ring volume will be low... and for the restart problem, it can be solved by just upgrading your firmware.. and as far as comparing it with 5300, nokia 6233 is far better in all aspects... i am using 6233 for the past 3 months with 1gb card without any probs. i am completely satisfied with 6233
planning to buy one, read all the reviews, but still some confusions to be cleared...
1) camera sound : cant it be really turned OFF?
2)photo quality : is it bad compared to SE K750
3) firmware : in what way does its updating help. is there a need of updating firmware imediately on buying.
there is this dilemma goin in my mind....i have read alot of reviews and user opinions about this phone....
could u please clarify my doubts??
1.does this phone really has a software/firmware problem...as many people have written the phone restarts and music player resets the song beong played....
2.is the ascending ring option the only option to set in the ringtones..?? cant we use it as a normal ring ...not ascending style???
3.what is the best out of sony ericsson's k750i , nokia 6233 or nokia 5300 ??
ur help would be really appreciated
