hi jenna! another question, do you know how to increase the video recording time of n6230 from 4 mins. to 30 mins. or 1 hour?
For Nokia the model Nokia 6230 will be the leader in the line-up till the end of this year. The review on the model tells about a quantity of small defects relating mainly to the software. Within the first month of shipments there were improved all flaws with the creaking panels, now they comply with the standard for this class. However Nokia 6230 turns out to have hardware problems, about which the company didn’t warn the consumers.
Many Nokia 6230 handsets that come to the Russian market have factory defects. One of the screens made of metal bears overheating traces, the white metal turned blue under the heat influence. Such effect is impossible during the assembly at the plant. This could happen if solder without the lead (the process involves high temperatures), but that’s hardly a good explanation, as other screens stay really white.
We’ve consulted with maintenance specialists. Unanimously they said that they hadn’t noticed such defects in this model, on the other hand not many models with mechanical defects were under repair. Specialist from one authorized service center recalled they had come across such flaw before. However they refused to give some official explanation saying that blue traces were typical for the non-professional solder outside the plant. This may happen if the model gets burned-out with a single flaw and then manually finished. In this case manufacturers often attach a respective sticker to the board.
All specialists from authorized service centers claimed these handsets couldn’t be a subject to the warranty repair without Nokia’s approval. Nokia 6230’ service manual depict the given element white, i.e. the factory technology doesn’t imply other colors. Thus there should be an official letter from Nokia to service centers stating that overheat traces could appear at the plant. Those lucky users of Nokia 6230 might face the situation: when a problem happens that need the handset to be dismantled, users risk greatly loosing the official warranty.
We’ve carried out a small investigation highlighting the problem. The handset depicted on the photo was made in the late April and has no entries on repairs in the service lists. Naturally we couldn’t leave the fact as it is and decided to visit several distributors. When we opened models shipped earlier and in May we witnessed the same picture. We checked 9 phones, all of them have blue overheat traces. Six handsets were picked out at random from 500 units. According to the results we suppose the defect is widespread.
no dout 6230 has atractive features but one imp function is missing builtin speaker phone
Nokia 6230 – buy the phone and loose your warranty.
i just bought this phone last week. it's the best phone from nokia until now. but, can i add some software in it like mp3 player, handy file? how to to make file in WAV format supported?
Phone is great.features are great.
comparison with other phones of same price and overall features has only to do with appearance and weight.If you like something else,go buy something else.All features are more or less the same.

*about error appearing.
have u rename ur mmc already?
becos i have the same problem before i rename my mmc.After i rename it,the problem is ok now :)
Very good phone with lots of features. After trying phones from SonyEricsson and Motorola, I am now convinced that Nokia has the best software out there. Lack of zoom on 6230 is a bit frustrating though. And a bigger screen would be better too.
Surfer the answer to your question is 12 hours. As for the battery I can get 2 days using most of its functions. Bluetooth and camera are the 2 functions that mostly affect the battery life.
does anyone know what's the maximum charging time for the battery using for the first time
just bought n6230, have problems with the pc suite 6.1 provided by nokia. my laptop is connected to n6230 but when i browse inside the mobile there's a error appearing in my screen, why? also i can't see what's inside my gallery folder?
try serching using yahoo..----Pc suite 5.8----

Excellent in many ways, but!! if only the battery would last as long as the lowest figure quoted by the manufacturers and not 8-10Hrs and thats without using the media capabilities etc So overall very dissapointed!
