I just got this as an upgrade from a 6680. What a great phone this is. A lot smaller than my 6680 yet it can do the same thing. Although it does not have a front camera I didnt use the one on the 6680 anyway so it doesnt matter!
Carphonewarehouse's performance is out of this world. Apparently my phone is ready (has been for 2 days) and when I phoned today they said they were "about to call me" - yeah yeah. Anyway, I'll have it tomorrow and shall be able to let you all know if I got the new firmware installed + any other improvements...(if any)
good phone. my first Nokia. it's a blend of business tools and entertainment at the same time. enjoy do your business whilst still listening stereo sound from the music player or the FM radio.
good gadget for man. not for woman.
What is difference between dis fone and Nokia 6131. Seems like Nokia keep making same fone over and over.
Why not change teh design???
c'mon Nokia you know better.
anyone who owns a 6233 has ure fone stopped recieving data via bluetooth cause im trying to get a mp3 from my friend and have 8.9mb free on my memcard and about 4mb on my phone but it keeps saying operarion failed HELP PLEASE!!!!
1. What about the video?
2. Yes, the backlight is good.
3. Not really, although there is a "night mode" on the camera.
4. Not that I know of.
5. 6233, especially if you are about to buy it.
Schosha and No Name,
You *can* get a timer of your current call, but you have to look for it. During a call, select Menu > Log > Call duration (or press Menu 3 7 as a shortcut), and you will see the "Active call duration" at the top of the screen.
I am going to buy this phone, but I want to ask you for the people who have bought this phone (6233).
1. How about the video?
2. How about the backlight? Is it good?
3. Can the camera take the good photos at night?
4. Is there any problem with the volume control?
5. Which one is the best: Nokia 6233, 3250, 6270, or SE W810i, if we compare these phones?
there's a summary after call option under call settings don't think there's acounter when your on a call though.
hey ppl anyone know how i can tell how long i've been talking during a call, was a SE user, and it had a time counter but now sorely miss this , there is no time!!
VERY NICE MOBILE,very good screen display .nice sound,But camera is average, compared to SE k750.
no firmware issue's so far guys connectivity is fine opening & closing applications are fine have also tried the screensaver options in the phone which seem fine "previous nokia' versions would reboot when the screensaver was changed in a certain way" best nokia phone i have had to be honest so far as had sony ericsson phones as my last 2 handset "k700i & d750i" both suffered from loss of speaker sound this is why i choose nokia again. i will keep you updated but t-mobile always have the latest firmware due to excessive testing they carry out
Yes, thanks for the email - I've replied to you, albeit slightly late due to my broadband upgrade delay. Thanks anyway.
It seems that there is some certainty of this new firmware (V4.52) - So this must be good news!
I was wondering if there was any chance of the 2 lucky lads posting us any probs they may face with the new firmware, if any? Also, it'd be nice to get some info on the impact of this new firmware.
Thanks in advance!
Roger, my phone came with the v4.52 firmware. I bought the phone on 3 August.
schosha and I seem to be the only ones with this version so far!
Mobileguru, the caller picture is 240 pixels wide x 250 pixels tall, so it takes up most of the 240x320 screen except for a border above and below the picture.
i purchased on 17/08/06 and mine software version is V-3.7
Yes while transferring through bluetooth of infrared this phone never asks for the location instead it saves all files in a predefined folder in phone's memory named "downloads"
Mine is 3.70, bought Aug-10-2006.
Hey Roger, did you received my email ?
Still no success with my phone. CarphonewareHouse may not return it until early september, so this is becoming a bother, really.
I have noticed someone here has already got the new firmware. Nokia has not "officially" released the upgrade but it seems that the latest handsets are coming upgraded, and that faulty ones have been returned with the new firmware. I am not sure about this but here we are - chinese wispers as it were.. The new firmware upgrade is, apparently, V4.52 - Let's hope it clears all the little bugs that torment us!
Please please guys, if you got your phone in the past 2 weeks, could you please post your firmware version here? - To check, simple enough - #*0000# - and voila!
Then go and see some Sony Ericsson mobiles and stop spamming. I know I have good taste and I don't have to prove this to you. This is a business class phone and that's the end of the story.
