i have my 6233 and im very happy with it. the design is simple yet very durable. i got this for PHP 13,500.00 in the philipines. for such features, great speaker, stereo MP3, nice / clear and big screen. its worth my money for it. the series 40 interface is great faster than symbian. this is a great nokia phone, better than N70.!
u can check ur version by entering *#0000#.
if u r using ver 3.7 just go to customer care and ask them to change it to ver 4.5.
Where do i check my phone's ver.?
Where can i upgrade it? Can i upgrade it thru Internet?
Hello, I've got my unit back after upgrading to V4.52, still testing with it. But already realized that "Chinese" characters(songs title) playing in Media Player seems to have a bit abnormal...when skip forward & back when its on stop mode, the characters of previous title(last few words)will stays when new title is display. U will need to exit & in again or skip forward in the play mode, than it will ok...I also realized that V4.52 include language change..maybe because of this I think.
few replies which i know...
1. u can view the video recording by nokia pc suite, if its not working means just download 3gp player from websites like www.download.com. it ll works.
2. yes, the picture in photocall is coming in full screen. its really superb.
3. if u have any problems like restarting and hang... just check the version. if it is 3.7... just change that to 4.5
I have bought this mobile phone for a month. So far so good. I like the video recording. It's high quality, especially for the 640 X 480 resolution.
But I got one problem here.
I want to play the video that I've recorded with N6233 in my computer. I've installed the nokia multimedia player in my computer from nokia PC suite. But the player can't play the .3gp video that I've recorded from the phone. The computer said the format file is not supported.
Tell me guys, is there any solution?
I have the same problem as you. I set up my hotmail account in my phone and then I tried to delete it. I couldn't. :-S
It's a cool phone. Whenever I'm out, I always carry it in my hand, just looks way better. I've noticed that the battery life wasn't as good as my old Nokia 3100 - but I guess it's understandable as everything is bigger and better in this phone, so the battery comsumption would be greater.
just got this phone yesterday .... it is fantastic!!!! ohhhhh ..... the design is just superb and the function is really good ... so far i haven encountered any problem that you guys meet, except for the ascending ringing tone.
Hmmmm... imo, 6233 is defintely a worth buying phone .... common, only USD 250.00 ++.
anyway, i got a problem here with my e mail account setting .... i set up one gmail account now i want to delete it, but there's no such option to delete the account .... Weird .... anyone out there can help me with this prob ... Thanks a lot ....
Those who already got it:
Is it true that the caller's picture is shown full screen? If so,has any other Nokia the same feature?
6233 is better than sonyericsson k750,w700,w800 .I had k750 before ,it is not working now ,it has major problem .Sony has better sound and camera but they can not beat nokia in software and long life of mobile.Many things you can not do in sonyericsson like pc synchronise contacts etc. Text copy past.In thumbnails photo with detais size name etc. sms software is better in nokia.S40 is better than k750/w800 operating system.
Also no other sonyeric mobile can record video in VGA resolution maximum it is qVGA (1/4 of VGA)in w900 ,w800/k750 resolution is less than qVGA it is qcif.very very poor video recording in sony.
6233 is alwys better.
Hi sathish, thanks for your concerned, I 've send mine for upgrading & will be getting it back tonight, I'll test it & hope everything is fine. As your for doubts, WMA can be play on this phone but not AVI. There are some reasons for photos turns to be unclear :- hand-shake(before file saved), poor light(indoor), zooming & lastly settings(set Image quality to "High") happy snapping.
