Why does my battery life suck?? I recharged it almost 2 days ago and have made a few calls but not many, 5 mins of mp3 playing and a few sms msgs and im allready down to half!! Does the batt get better with more charging??
Thanks Harrison, I will have a look though there.
I just got this phone the other day and am slowly adjusting to it, but 2 things annoy me. The first is that when you make a call, the call timer is not displayed on the main screen. The only way I can see how long I've been on the phone is by going into menu, then logs, then call duration, then last call (whilst I'm on the phone which is a bit tricky). Also, my sent text messages are not displayed in the Sent items, and when a message has been sent there is no confirmation display, so I have no idea whether the text was sent successfully.
Just two little things, but on the whole it's a good phone.
Have you tried the Nokia forum?
Just a thought. Best wishes
The 6233 will store approx 130 sms in the phone's memory and 9 on the sim card. As you said, you will not be able to move the msgs to a memory card. you can however download them to your computer but PC only and sadly, not a Mac, which is why I went instead for a Samsung E900 which stores 200 msgs. In all other respects, the Nokia with its superior user-interface is a better phone imho.
Please can someone let me know how I can configure the phone so that when I use WAP is does it through GSM rather than GPRS. Have phoned T-mobile a million times and visited stores but no one seems to know. Unknowingly I'd wracked up a phone bill of £50 using WAP on GPRS when it could've just come out of my monthly free minutes.
hey roger just wondering if you know how to get rid off the ascending ring tone without lowering the ring tone volume to level 4??
in regards to the color, they are both great but i personally prefer the back one. makes it look more solid and classic. 6233 rocks!
To ice, 6233 does not have bulit in flash, it has night mode which is good as any phone with a flash.. The internal memory is ok, but memory card is better. You can either get a 64mb or 1gb card. Happy hunting!
ei guys im planning to buy this one, i wanna ask does the cam have a flash? and hows the internal memory? thanks,
yeah i dun mind the silver finish. i have a black 6233 (god love it) hehe. The stainless steel finish is great, adds a touch of class to it. as roger said it does get the odd finger print.. But no phone is perfect, right??
Seems like i've very fatty fingers - I keep getting typing errors - sorry readers. I promise to do better next time. Everyone makes mistrakes...Nobody is prefect!
Someone sent me a question, but i cant find the email addy now...sorry - I am posting the answer here ok? apologies.... uh hum././ Anyway....The silver/Chrome lining around the phone is nto horrible...I personally think it looks ok...Obviously it gets covered with finger prints when you're handling the phone, but a quick wipe and it is new again! So, no, it is not a major let down, i quite like it, and i think most owners of this model would agree....Anyone wanna comment on that? please?
TO the unnamed person below about text messages = I've just tried it and NO - i could not move messages from my inbox to the mem card - could only move to saved messages folder, within inbox, and it won't go anywhere else....sorry....
Anyway, i got about 100 texts, incl sent/received....Will keep and eye on how many it can take....Cheerio, roger
For those of you who have been crying for a review of this phone from GSMArena and anywhere on the internet, CNET finally posted it's review today July 24, 2006. The only strange thing about the review is that it's only a 2 page review whereas CNET's reviews are normally 4 pages upwards.
Whoever is interested can check it out at: http://asia.cnet.com/reviews/mobilephones/0,39051199,39097180p,00.htm
Hey Andrei, forgot to say, mem card - I got mine from http://mobymemory.com/ - i got a 1gb for under 25quid. And it is fast for my MP3 and Pics - it rocks! good one i say! cheerio.
Hey Andrei, check out http://www.yourmobilephonereviews.co.uk/nokia_6233_reviews.htm - there's a small but useful review there. Also, " i talk about 20-30 min, i listen up to 1 hour of music, take 10-20 pictures and finally play games arround 30 min EVERY DAY with my phone...i dont use umts...does the phone last 3 days with this" NOT very possible, but not impossible. Can't test it for you as I do not do all that with my phone....Anyway, cheerio! roger.
Hey Surferguy, sorry, a bit delayed in replying to your query, but it sounds like you got the answer anyway! Well done dude!.My battery seems to be lasting more with time, I've charged it 3 times now....Nob bad i must say. Cheerio, roger
No, the Silver one is better looking as the chrome protection doesn't stand out as much as it does in the Black model :-)
hi! i like this phone...very much... i want to buy it... but... what is this that nokia called back this model - is this true?
a few days ago i heard that the phone has a heating problem when in use - true or false?
what about the bat life?! i talk about 20-30 min, i listen up to 1 hour of music, take 10-20 pictures and finally play games arround 30 min EVERY DAY with my phone...i dont use umts...does the phone last 3 days with this? if it does, i'm happy :))
where can i find a complete review of this phone?
in the end...what brand should i choose for the mem card? there is something faster/better or all of them are the same?
