francis : if ur using maxis, please check the firmware of the phone before u buy it. if later then 3.XX dont buy it.
i'm a maxis user and i've changed the simcard twice because of the 3G problem.
as per one posting nokia has released latest sofware version 3.47 firm wire now I would like to know has any body installed and if so what chnages have come across in the same if so please update me on the same
hello.. im from Malaysia... i havent bought the phone but i have ordered and waiting for the zitron stock... eerr.. has anyone in malaysia got a nokia 6630? will the no signal problem occur in malaysia? thank you.
the option between 3G and GSM only isn't available in my phone firmware 2.39.
when i ask them to update it they kept saying the new firmware (3.47) isn't stable yet, i have to wait another month or so.
does anyone have any experience with the new firmware?
Thanks for that tip. The &&&*ing idiot in the Nokia shop said you can't switch off 3G !
So now it's gone back to Nokia :-(
I'll have some words for him when I get my phone back. I am not impressed with Nokia putting such a heap of crap out onto the market to be honest.
I recall on another site about switching off 3G & the guy said that also prolongs battery life.
yes.... another reason to pay for an 'off-contract' phone... YOU decide what the 'fancy buttons' do, not the provider! :)
I have switched off my 3G and gone over to GSM
Go to Tools~Settings~Network. In the Network Mode, select GSM.
Seems to sort out alot of the problems though, for some reason, it no longer wishes to access the internet.
Beginning to regret this phone now. At least it was a free upgrade
i bought 6630 just 2 months ago, however, i cant change the palette color, i took it 2 the service agent but they told me it cant be changed for now. My other probleme is that the fone suddenly showed the memory card as not inserted & only fone memory is used.
One more doubt i have is that the resolution of photos taken with the 6630 is also 1280 x 960...So my question is that are any of U usin the 6630 also havin similar problems or is it only with the 3230..
I think the only ones here saying 'This phone is great' must be kids that like all the gadgets on it !
Anyone that needs a good phone to take & make calls ought not to buy a 6630. I found the same as Andy that it drops out of reception a lot of the time time as it looks for 3G !
Don't buy this phone unless Nokia fixes their stupid problem with the phone looking for 3G every time it loses signal or the signal gets weak. Been 3 days now without a signal.. $700 down the drain. Bought it when it first came out. They sold me a dummy phone with Bugs in it.. It looks great, if only it worked!!! Nokia where are you??? This phone is a failure!
wow .. this phone is great... for mat rempit like me ( biker boyz) before this I use 3650 and then change to 3660 and now 6630 due to age developement ... I like it because the butt iss round and this one is better cause bigger...
Of course I have a 6630. I've mentioned all the problems I've had with it on posts you've not read.
If you want a camera then buy a camera.
If you want a phone buy a phone.
If you want a crap phone that loses signal & drops out of the network. Has tiny fonts & a battery life of only one day & a camera that only has 1.3M Pixels, then the Nokia 6630 is for you. Go buy one, that way you get a crap phone & a crap camera !
Plz some one who has the right information answer my question not eager on buyin' NOKIA !
which one has better CAMERA & DISPLAY quality?
nokia 6630,samsung d500?
I've been using this 6630 for a while and there's no problem with it. But sometimes it reboots itself but it's normal with the series 60 phones. The camera's great but lags a second. The line's great and there's no problem at all. Love this phone but I need more memory. 1 or 2 GB's please Nokia. Make the 1GB@2GB RS DV MMC faster!
I just bought my 6630 in malaysia.
its firmware dated 4th Jan 2005.
the question is, there is a TIM word under the screen and the "connection to GPRS on the zero button" is red instead of blue...
may i know whats the difference betweem, normal 6630?
its a good phone but my memory card seems to have corrupted and stop working altogether, the phone also cannot find the memory card. Took it to nokia shop where they carried out a software update but still no luck. they told me to send it off to nokia which i may do unless anyone has any idea how to solve this problem? cheers!
Andy mine has same prob. It's gone back to Nokia but I don't imagine they can fix unless they can switch of 3G in my 6630. Anyone know if this can that be done ?
If not & they won't refund my money I'll just flog the heap of **** on Ebay.
Anyone want to buy a 6630 ?
