LX, a last question..
Sumit here posted a really big review of three S60 phones.
He says one thing which makes me a bit apprehensive about S60 applications not working on Nokia 6681. Is that the case?
Can you tell me some really useful and nice applications that WORK on this phone so that I know if my need is fulfilled. Sumit.. you can also tell me.
Our usual needs are
- a Good mp3 player with equalizer
- office spreadsheet application
- pdf reader
- global timers and messengers etc. stuff
LX, Sumit.. any site which has best applications to download?
The moment you guys answer the above questions.. I am leaving to buy this phone.
LX, thanks a lot buddy! Sorry could not reply to you earlier as was in a process of flying to USA.
If you are based out of USA, whats is the current price of this phone over there?
Bought Nokia 6681 set last week. Excellent handset.
But Have one issue. Received few tones (mp3, wav formats) and saved in memory card. These tones should have gone ideally to the gallery, but gallery doesn't show anything of this sort.
Can somebody tell me how to retrieve these tones and where they moght have gone..
I did not able to use battry of this NOKIA 6681 more than 3 days standby & talk of 15 mins.or only for a day & 35- 40 mins.only
what i should Do??
PLZ help me..............
my email ID is
waiting for reply
You will have to access the phone through the usb cable or a card reader depending on where you have installed the game. Simply delete the game folder from the memory and from the system files as well.
Would like to add one more thing, the phone memory is about 9.6mb as opposed to 8mb posted on the website and by you.
I downloaded a game today "Elocom Attack Of TheKillervirus1_02" from http://www30.websamba.com/Muhammad_nabeel/updates2.html
which wasn't at all good. Now I want to delete the game, but it says "Unable to delete killer virus".
How can I delete the game ?
well, i disagree that 6681 dosen`t support 3D games,how about the 3D SNOWBOARD? it is provided with the package? and, 6681 does not support FM radio!
The info you have collected is pretty good, but I get this feeling that your opinion is a bit biased. NO personal offense intended. Nokia 6681 has push to talk ( you werent sure of this )The phone is very stable and hardly if ever gives any problems provided you have the newer version of the firware. The user interface is very simple and well done, especially the today screen, which has the shortcuts on the main screen and the appointments or the events for the day below that, serving as a very efficient reminder. No doubt the features of the two phones (nokia 6630 and 6681) are pretty similar but
the nokia 6681 has better looks and a revolutionary 262k colours supported display. The flash and the sliding lens cover are also a first for nokia phones although the newer models like n70 followed the foot steps. I have used the 6630 for 8 months and switched to the nokia 6681 after that. The phone is brilliant and responds very well and is very stable. The music player is also very good. But I have said this time and again, Its all a matter of choice and everyone has an equal right to voice their opinion. A job well done anyways
sumit you have put in quite a bit of effort gathering all the data. Keep up the good work.
hi using this phone for 10 days gr8 phone wd all features but sometimes it just restarts by itself.somebody knows why is it so?wht can we do to sort it out?it just resets to original phone settings
The response of the keys is wonderful and there is no lag either. The center button to confirm anything works the smoothest of all.
The sound quality is pretty impressive and the output through the earphones is stereophonic and that through the loudspeaker is mono but real good quality. If you wanna get the most of the music player of the phone, get a new player like power mp3 which has the option of selecting the presets for the songs and a 10 band equaliser.
The phone is very stable and runs very smoothly.
The battery life totally depends on the usage of the phone but it works a good 1 and a half days.
Its a beaut of a phone and if handled well serves you excellently.
Hope this sorts out at least some of your problems.
Hello everybody. I am Sumit. from india.
This is My first detailed review on nokia 6630,3230,6681
** 3230 vs 6630 vs 6681 **
I will discuss these three models in detail and simple language....
may be it will be helpful to u.
** History of my previos handsets **
Lg G1800(i have this now also.and i like it)
nokia 6630 (best among all the phones)
my 3 frinds have 3230. i have 6630. and 2 frinds have 6681. i got my 6630 four days ago.after reserching 2 months on the web and reading almost all forums and stuff available on the net. i went for 6630.
** Let us discuss about three phones. which i had considered before buying 6630..
** Processor **
3230 - 104 MHZ (slower)
6630 - 223 MHZ (faster than 3230)
6681 - 223 MHZ
** symbian os **
6630 V8.0 bugs fixed. more ability
** battery **
3230 BL 5B
6630 BL 5c(best)
6681 BL 5c (" ")
nokia has BL series like bl 1,2,3,4,5
Among them Bl 5 is latest and i think best.
6630 has talktime upto 3 hours(3g on) and 6 hours ( 3g off). enough for everybody..
3230 has talktime upto 11 hours. because its processor is slow. stand by time of all three is almosy same..
** DISPLAY **
technically all are same. but 3230 is best according to me.
** mp3 player**
3230 worse... its mono..
6630,6681 strereo and best
** 3D Games **
6681 not supported.. go through other sites and u'll see this.
** phone memory **
more phone memory = more speed.and runs big application also..
6630 10mb great than others
**memory card included in pack **
** i recommend to add memory cards of following size for good(bearable) performance and good size **
3230 128mb. since slow proccessor,low ram
6630 512mb required for mp3
6681 512mb "" ""
** assembly **
in asia 3230 is manufactured in china. and shiped to asian contries.anyone can see the difference in 3230 it feels like cheap plastic. 6630,6681 are manu.in finland.. and imported to asia.. their build quality is best.
** looks **
according to many people
6630 good. bulky.(only negative factor)
according to me
i like all three. but 6630 looks great. i am fan of it.and doesnt matter. its trend of big phones :-)
** EDGE **
3230 half. only for uploading.
leave kbps.(b= bit)
we'll consider kBps(B=byte, actual file size is in this format.)
if i leave one big file for downloading then i get
3230 5-6 kBps, 13 to 16 mb per hour
6630 18-20 kBps 50-64mb per hour(by edge. no 3G available in india)
6681 same as 6630
i have tested all on pc. now posting this from 6630 connected to pc.
3230 uopload fast. but download by normal GPRS. so no use for me.
**3G support.** soon will be available in india
much faster than edge
3230 not supported
6681 not supported
** weight **
almost same for all.and doesnt matter much
** Data cable **
3230 not included in pack
its worth Rs 1200
(RS=India currency. 1$=47 Rs)
** headset included**
6630 grey like nylon. one of the best.
6681 pure white. one of the best.
** typing **
3230 headacke... bit difficult
6630 comparatively better
** user interference **
3230 best. as its os is 7.
6630,6681 bit difficult, because more powerful os.and can do more things
** push to talk **
i dont know what is it. and doesnt matter. because no friend of mine uses it
6630 not supported
6681 i dont know
** s60 applications **
3230 most of it works
6630 most of it works
6681 most of them DONT work
** price ** india, 28-march-2006
3230 Rs- 11,100
6630 Rs- 11,650
6681 Rs- 14,500
** hot swap **
dont ask what is it. i know it. but tired of typing...
ok.. its... u can remove memory card withouth shutting phone off. and u dont have to remove cover also.
** FM radio **
doesnt matter for me.
** CD with software **
** conclusion **
( "~~~~~~" = best acc. to me)
3230= 11100+1200(data cable)=12300
-plays all applications,3D games
-" 3G "support ,
-very vey fast than previos model 3230
-plays all applications,3D games ~~~~~~
-big impression on others,
again ~~~~~~ means better
-lack of " 3G "
-no data cable
-not stable. cant say whaen it is going to hang.
-no FM(doesnt matter for me),
-others find it bulky. but i like it ~~~~~~
-No 3D games,
-doesnt play almost all the s60 applications
-not so stable
** Summery **
6630 is the winner. just go and buy it

Lx and other expert users of this phone, I am thinking of purchasing this phone. I need some info - I will try my best not to ask repeated questions and annoy you off!
1. How is the keypad response especially the arrow keys..
2. The sound quality, does it have enough bass element through headphones? without the headphones, how is the external loudspeaker?
3. Speed of the phone in normal operations.
4. Stability and battery life under heavy usage..
The only or atleast the most reliable way to get your firmware upgraded is to take it to the nokia service centre. If your phone is within the warranty it ought to be done for free.
had a very bad experience...the phone did not work since a week of purchase and has been repaired twice in 6 months. No response from the company and hence the money down the drain.
Does anyone know how to update the firmware?
i have 4.62.0
new firmware: 5.37.0
where do i get it and how do i update it?
Play mp3 while youre on a call and playing a video or a game while using bluetooth at the same time possible !
Does anyone know of any way to enhance the browsing speed using this phone, not that it is slow in any aspesct but just checking. Mr singh maybe you can give me some tips.
You can now get in touch with me on my hotmail account firstname.lastname@example.org Cheers
No problem at all DM. Glad to be of help.
Try deleting the files from the file manager. If in case that does not work you will need to use a data cable or card reader to do the same. The problem should be solved.
To get the best quality from the camera of your phone try taking pictures in well illuminated areas. The pictures come out great. If you cant do anything about the light, use the in built flash(for capturing the images of objects upto a distance of 4 to 5 ft away). Avoid using the night mode option coz it is not all that satisfactory. If all these dont work, keep the phone aside and get yourself a digital camera!!
