A fantastic phone, I have owned mine since new in 2003 it still works with no problems, I would not change it, I know a chap who is a multi-millionaire and he still has his! It's small Compact and does all I want it to do, I don't want to carry a TV screen around with me that cannot get a signal when I can. I have never seen a phone I would consider swapping for. I have had iPhones Blackberry's and Android's as work mobile's, no I'll keep to the Nokia 6230.
Love this game changing phone. Once it was released there was no feature phone with better specs than this.
Mine still works great.
I still use 6230 as secondary phone. It is working fine. I like it. Very good phone.
The best phone I ever possessed is the original 6230, very good speech quality, very good handling, nice design, best ergonomic shape for my hands, extremely durable, very long stand-by time, good FM reception via headset. I didn't use the internet and e-mail functions, so no comments on them. Bluetooth works fine to transfer files and talk via headset, but you can't dial via bluetooth in a car with built-in hands-free equpment. The ringtone speaker gave up, this year. That's why I've gotten the sucessor which is the 6230i with a bit more kitsch on the GUI but less stand-by time. I'll have to copy the ringtones from the old one, because the i-version doesn't ring nicely. Aside from that, the i-version is very similar.

Why I don't have the same "feeling" with new phones as I had with these old ...? Nice times...I guess not only phones changed by now,but the world as well.-Nostalgia-
Still working after all the abuse it has taken over the years. They sure don't build them like this any more. Without a doubt the most reliable and favourite phone I have ever owned.
