OK thanks but I've taken the phone back & swopped it now for a 3230.
I would be prepared to get the 6630 back as it's higher spec phone & try net monitor but will it work with Vodaphone version of 6630 firmware ?
Does net monitor cost anything ?
as i told u before that download and install "net monitor' for 6630 and u can totally 'SWITCH OFF' 3G so it will stop looking for 3g connection!..search in the internet and u will find lots of user solved thier 3G problm! and pls dont discourage ppl to choose 6630 bcoz this is excellent phone ever made!!...
After one day of owning a 3230 I can't believe how long the battery lasts. Been used all day & the battery strength bar is still showing full battery charge.
The 6630 was a nightmare battery barely lasted a day !
That along with losing network coverage all the time with the 6630.
MY ADVICE IS...... DO NOT BUY A 6630.
This fone is a brick!!!!!!!!
Heavy but can be improved.
Only a brick would buy it!!!!!
You want a camera phone? In 3 mounths will come Samsung P860 what is haveing a 5 MEXAPIXEL camera!!!!!
i bought it recently and i used it, it's not as great as it was advertised. somehow i still find that 6680 is much better? the 6630 camera of mine dosen't even looks clear compare to my friend's 7610
Beware whilst some seem happy with 6630 I had severe network probs & losing network signal somehow due to it dithering between 3G & GSM. The Nokia shop said can't switch off 3G so in the end I had to swop the 6630 for a 3230 & now no network signal problem with that.
So it's a lottery. If you buy a 6630 you risk this problem for which it seems there is no cure.
I don't really see a need for 3G anyway.
Thanks for your reply! In the 4 months that you had the phone any problems with it? Signal, resets, crashes or errors, etc? I am will pay around 400 euros on the phone so I wanna be sure. Thanks alot.
I bought nokia 6630 4 months ago and i can say that is the best phone ever nokia made.You shoyld buy it!
GUYS!! Please help me out, I wanted to buy a Nokia 6630 so I first searched for reviews on the model, and now I'm not sure what to get... people complain alot about the Nokia 6630 (that it crashes, has a weak signal and so forth). I'm really not sure what to get, I am now thinking of going and buying a Nokia 7610 (it has great reviews everywhere). What do you guys suggest I do? go for the new 6630 or get the 7610???? Please reply. Thanks!
It all depends on what your looking for in your phone, the 6600 is and older model therefor is not as "up to date" as the 6630. The 6600 has a small VGA camera (640x480) it has an older version of symbian. It's up to you.

The 6630 is Nokia's first 3G smartphone. It's Nokia's most powerful smartphone yet, built on the Series 60 Symbian operating system with a wealth of pre-installed and downloadable applications.There's a full range of connectivity options, including wireless Bluetooth support, both for headsets, car kits, and for all kinds of data transfer. You can synchronise your contacts remotely using Bluetooth or via a cable. The features go on and the phone is amazing. Just got mine for $40. If you want to know anymore about the phone e-mail me at Bobubankes25@hotmail.com Hope you enjoy!!

Checked with Nokia shop. They rang technical dept & can't switch off G3. Maybe becuase I'm with Vodaphone or maybe my version of software. Anyway it's not my problem now. I've got rid of the CRAP 6630.
I insisted the shop exchange the 6630 for a 3230 which fortunately is non 3G. So I think I'm better off now. I don't need 3G anyway. I've got a TV for that !
My 3230 shows loads of signal strength.
ey men go to symbian-freak.com lotz guides how to turn off 3G in 6630...sorry dont rmember the code tat u need to type to disabled 3G protocol...u can find there the very usefull step by step guides...gud luck men :)
I tried 'settings', 'network' & there is no option with my software to turn off 3G :-(
I'm going to demand my money back. I miss half my calls due to loss of network coverage on this phone.
My advice to anyone thinking of buying a 6630 is.. DON'T
hey men there is no 3.5mm earphne slot in any pop port nokia but if u want to use your normal earphone as an alterntive for listening music u hav to use popport to 3.5mm adapter ...
I suggest u to install net monitor for 6630 and u have an option to force stop of 3G or GSM mode so it will not look for 3G signal but u will loose internet connection as far as i know...
