I have had 5 of these phones and their has been falts with them all,such as droping signal and not regaining it without switching the phone off and then on,also they switch off on their own, freeze up, and lose all the tones. Not very happy, technology to advanced without proper testing i think.
i've bought a sim-free 6630 on Vodafone UK. i've had a look at those posts saying about ver 2.49 and 3.45... i currently have 2.49... can someone tell me where to get 3.45 or even netmonitor (to turn off that 3G thingy)...
did someone say vodafone would not work on 2.49... i am looking to unlock it to use it with 3 UK ... would that have any problems?
a detailed answer is very much appreciated..
thanks a lot
If you have 3.45 or later you don't need a code to turn off 3G. Just use Tools~Settings~Network and change Network mode to GSM
I have 3.45 My phone keeps freezing and I have to restart it manually so that I can continue to use it
Have a few questions for the 6630 v3.45.113 or 4.13 users!!
1) Do these latest versions have the restart bug?
2) Do they have the camera bug which was there in initial versions of 6630?
3) Is there any other sort of bug in these versions?
PLZ HELP! WILL REALLY APPRECIATE IT! THNX
well, i discovered sth about the "palette colours" the palette never changes rite?
but sth that do change is the colour when you open "contacts" below (in the screen) you see ABC rite? well those abc are in colour that you set in "themes".
I tried in all colours, but anyway it only changes the ABC letters that i mentioned.
ps/ if someone could change the palette colours plz let me know it.
ah, pink does not work sorry ladies hehehe
you cannot switch off 3G unless you have firmware 3.45 or later. If you have that then good though I don't know what the code is to switch off 3G. If you have earlier firmware, you can download net monitor from 'symbian freak'. Then you can turn off 3G with that software instead.
My conclusion is this phone is very good. But don't get it with firmware v2.39 on Vodaphone UK. You can't switch off 3G so lose calls if coverage poor & drain battery faster.
Must be firmware v3.45 or later.
i think the 6630 is a bomb of a phone. what i struggle with is the games for it and also to download from my pc using the usb cable. lekke phone
if u got the latest version there is option in the network settings then network mode.. thers GSM or DualMode option...
Bought 6630 from Dubai when i was there last week.Beautiful phone, love all the features.Can anyone plz tell me what is the CODE to switch off 3G.
I don`t want a camera phone!!! I want a phone with 3G and stereo mp3 player! AND I WANT IT BECAUSE HE HASN`T A BIG PRICE like nokia N91!!!
i just formatted my rs-dv-mmc, and when i wanted to open the dictionary, "dictionary word missing, install word data base" occured, can someone advice on wat should i do? thanks
Ted I hope that helps. The 6630 is fine otherwise, apart from the fonts are rather small.
that's interesting you had 3G probs also. What the heck are Vodaphone playing at. Any '3G only' phone is a complete headache !
I don't even want to pay out for video calls. Don't really need them.... just a bit of a gimmick really. I only went for the 6630 becuase it's high spec in other areas.
Correction I installed 'net monitor' I mean.
Reason is even the Nokia service centre didn't have 3.45. I don't think it's available in UK yet. Anyway. It doesn't matter. I've been able to switch off that useless 3G now using 'net monitor'.
Vodaphone won't support 3.45.
I guess having wasted £billions to get the licence from the UK government they wouldn't want to let people switch it off would they :-(
Answer is I downloaded net watch from symbian-freak.com.
It lets me turn off 3G.
Now I don't miss any calls & the battery lasts longer.
I'm really angry with Nokia & or Vodaphone for putting out a phone where you can't switch off 3G.
It's taken me ages to find out why I was missing calls by losing reception & then to find the solution !
Well mate, did upgrading to v3.45.113 solve the 3g problem. Is v3.45.113 bug-free? Plz help. Badly need to buy this phone
At first people on this forum were saying that version:3.45.113 does not have any bugs.Now saw some posts saying that v:3.45.113 also has a few bugs. Can u plz clear this confusion? WHICH IS THE LATEST BUG-FREE VERSION?IS IT V3.45.113.plZ HELP
to robpe,,you will find vodafone at the root of your problem as ive had trouble in the past getting them to unlock and upgrade things.they often bar mp3 ringtones so you buy theres.they always heavily lock stuff to there network and think people will support me in this matter as its fairly well known how awkward and restrictive they are.That is why i got my 6630 sim free and at the moment running it in 2g and will go to 3g when they release 3g sim cards which will be when 3g is fully working at 99% coverage and less faults.Ive a big feeling that by then we will be using HSPDA but until then 3g is no use to the majority of us thats why my moto a835 is sat there after nearly 2 years,that said when it works the video downloads are somthing else,lets hope things pick up on a big scale
ive just taken a 3 minute vid of my cat and the tail wagging and me wandering about is so smooth compared to my 7610.this was at 176 x 144 resolution and not in night mode. Its very impressive and now want to transfer it to computer to have alook at,,where do i start??the phone does hang sometimes if youre to fast with it,you must let it respond before pressing the next command.the whole package is great and awaiting memory card of 512mb to evolve and see if the phone can accept them with no hitches.The screen is bright and a touch brighter than my gx30 but obviously not the same resolution.The ogg player is crisper and more efficient than the inbuilt player and see no reason at this point in time to go for the 6680 with none of my mates with a 3g phone anyway.This is the second best phone ive had( the 3650 being second)and glad i upgraded to the 6630 while i had the chance to return my 7610 which did not have full screen video,and stuttered thru video.A superb multi purpose entertainment device with a higher speed 220 mhz processor,,excellant 9.5/10...
