hi 6630 user,it's rony from Bangladesh again.if u like music and more quality with your 6630 then use either audio converter AD-15 with good headset or use HS-23 like me.U can also use HS-3 which comes sales package of N70,6680.OR HS-31 comes with 7360,7370,N72.But I have not test HS-3,HS-31 yet.But I believe they are better than HDS-3.I m using HS-23 which comes sales package with 6270,6280,n73,n80.6630 is not listed compatible phone in nokia site. Because it has a volume control which not work in 6630.But don't worry mic work and sound quality much much better than HDS-3.More powerful sound with Very good bass.I use powermp3 1.01.I compare HS-23 with 6630 and n73.I think sound quality same except hands free mode as n73 has 3D sound.So 6630 rocks.Good luck
Review Mobile Handset Nokia 6630:
After selling my Sony Ericsson W550i, I bought myself a Nokia 6630 which is called the "hummer" here in the Syrian market due to its durability and big size.
I don’t know what made my but it since it was a bit outdated and with some less features than W550i. I think that Nokia has a secret way to charm and attract users.
I didn’t really like some new Nokia solutions that the memory card is sold separately such as 6125, 6131 or some phones that feel loose in ones hand such as 6280 or N72.
Actually I love my new 6630! It has a large bright screen display, large keypad, external memory card slot, and not to mention the rather comfortable power and voice dialing side buttons.
The phone is really comfortable in your hand and you can feel how solid it is and how easy is to use the navigation, alphanumeric, and side keys.
I didn’t really like the idea of adding a light-sensor to this mobile phone and also the later models. It's located on the top above the Nokia logo. It turns off the keypad when surrounded by a well-lit area.
Nokia claims that this is for saving battery life, but I don’t think so because you can easily put your finger on top of the light-sensor and that will light the keypad again as if it was dark.
The right side button is a power button (long press) and also to switch between profiles (short press) and that is quite typical for all Nokia phones.
The left side button is used for voice dialing, voice commands, and to easily switch between handset and loudspeaker modes when a call is in progress.
One of the 6630 disadvantages is absence of side volume keys which may come in handy during a call.
Let's talk about the loudspeaker. I'm really impressed! The sound is loud and clear when using the speaker phone or when listening to an MP3 file. Of course you can't compare it with phones that have 2 speakers or 3D sound but it's quite perfect in this segment.
You will be also amazed when you use the headset included in the standard sales package and enjoying the power of MP3 or WAV files.
Let's now talk about the camera.
Nokia categorizes this mobile phone in the imaging segment. It has a 1.3 mega pixel camera with 12x of smooth digital zoom and also the ability to control brightness and contrast of photos (before taking them).
Night mode and sequence mode (burst) are also available.
The maximum image resolution is 1280*960 pixels. VGA quality (640*480 pixels) is also available.
I think that the image quality is good enough. The photos look really good on the phone and PC. They turn out a bit blurry when zooming (typical for digital zoom).
As for video, unlimited recording is available and that depends on the capacity on the memory card. The video resolutions are 176*144 or 128*96 pixels.
Night mode and muting/unmuting sound is also available during video recording.
I can say that the 6630 camera is good for people who just need a simple camera or like to shoot a few photos every once in a while or during special occasions.
But of course you can replace a digital camera with a cell phone camera.
The phones operating system is Symbian OS based on series-60 platform.
You won't find much differences if compared to other phones such as 6600, 7610, 6670, 6260…etc.
That means it's compatible with most of the SIS files.
One of the main software differences is the gallery. It no longer uses the filing mode. Sound clips, music tracks, images, web links, are separated into categories.
There is also an ''All Files" category that shows all files which are sorted only by date.
A great advantage or plus for this phone is the new range of added programs such as:
Movie maker, image prints, video editor, Adobe PDF, quick office, Kodak mobile sharing, catalogs, search, photo editor, lifeblog, and the best one of them is image manager which allows to edit images or view them in a full-screen slideshow.
Other stuff such as messaging, clock, web, calendar, wallet, to-do…etc. are typical for other series 60 phones. Bluetooth is also available but no infrared.
You can also install a Bluetooth wireless keyboard using keyboard application and also get operator settings automatically using settings wizard programs.
An interesting application is a voice commands which easily enables you to add voice commands to almost all phone applications.
The music player is quite good and the sound quality is great for a phone that uses one speaker. It supports MP3, AAC, WAV, AMR, and RM sound formats. The music player is a bit poor due to absence of an equalizer. You can also use any of the mentioned formats as a loud ringing-tone.
U can be more satisfied with sound if u use the HDS-3 dual heasdset included in the standard sales package. Ofcourse u cant compare it with SonyEricsson Headsets but I say that the sound is loud enough.
Video calls are also supported when a 3G network is available.
As a conclusion, I think that this phone is great for people who need a smart phone with a large display, large keypad, good camera, and comfortable side keys.

if its a theme you've receive via bluetooth, you receive it then an installation will occur and you can see the theme in themes. in pictures and sound, you need to save it first, the save option will appear in sounds when you stopped it while playing rather than while playing it, then you will see your pictures or sounds on gallery.
PS, you can erase your received bluetooth message on your inbox after saving to free up space.
guys ive got a small question. everytime i receive something via bluetooth like a theme, song or video clip from another phone it goes straight to my message inbox and i cant open it. is there anyway i can change this? any way i could make it go to my gallery so i can open it? any advice would be greatly appreciated guys !! please?

mine doesnt crash and im using 1gb. what i do uis disable my antivirus but every 3 days im scanning my phone. im restarting my phone everyday and my firmware is 6.03.08. no need to completely reboot its program. and make sure that your mmc was formatted by your phone, not in the computer.
the no sim card thing is the offline mode.
and siril, i think your phone got a virus. it doesnt normally go like that.
no radio in 6630 lol.
but phone is amazing if you get some soft for pictures and video.
i have all business photos and entertainment videos in it and enjoy it.
thank you nokia for fast and strong phone, but please next time dont make camera inside, i dont need it, better take 16mln colors lcd tft or whatever, but bigger and smth like sony psp, i would love it. and always nokia give us symbian with card slot. bye bye
This phone is faaaaaaaantastic he almost watches over children and make breakfast in the morning.I put 1gb memory and i pack movies to 200mb so its 5 movies in phone an the titles can be seen without problem.Bad things about it are no radio, no IR, week battery when used, and it can crush system from time to time but nothing what resest cant solve.Just use backup option regulary and you will have no problems.
