i just bought this phone last week (graphite)..very nice phone..i sold my E398 (w/c is also a good phone) to my ofcmate just to buy this one..now i can record videos & listen to d fm radio..like d E398, it plays MP3 on stereo..d E398 has a little edge on d loudspeaker but d N6230 is better on d headset..d video is fine..and so is d VGA Camera, even better than my E398..not to mention d speed of this phone..probably d fastest multimedia phone in d market 2day..the MP3 player is more convenient than d E398 bcoz it plays all songs in 1 press of d button..in d E398, u hav to play d song 1 by 1..i always criticize nokia for its bad screen but d features of this phone is too much to ignore..d screen is not bad though but is definitely beaten by models like Samsung E800, E398, K700i..but if u can live with a small, not so bright screen, go for this one!it's worth d money..
Hi..would like to know if N6230 can support a 256mb MMC or even more?
plz sum1 tell me if this fone can play aac files and which is better da sony ericsson k700i or this fone??????????
i'm a 6230 user for about a year now... still lovin it. the mp3 sound quality is superb. just bought another unit - this time for my wife. prove that there's no other phone better than this - it's the best out there.
p/s: nokia, if there's anything to improve, it's the "to-do list" interface. the font needs to be smaller. pls sort this out in the latest firmware. if u do it in the 6230i, then i'll buy that one :-)
But Nokia 6230i will cost you more...
Buy a digital camera if you want an imaging device with high mega-pixels.
Hello everybody !!
Don't buy N6230 ... a good reason is that N6230i is going to appear . It already appeared but I didn't see it in stores. N6230i has a bigger screen (208x208), a better camera 1.3 MP ... this is very good and the sound quality is the same ... so .. you better wait less than 2 or 3 weeks and buy N6230i ....
hi Anurag, the sound quality of this phoneis absolutely amazing, you can store the songs on the phone memory or the MMC, there are playlist options, u can repeat a song or repeat ther playlist. but the playlist includes all the sons on the phone. u cannot edit that.
hi,i am a music lover thats why i feel that n6230 scores more then other mobiles, but can anyone tell me how is the mp3 sound quality of the phone & do we have an option to make a playlist of mp3 tracks? plz reply ASAP as i am very keen to buy it.
Finally I have bought a Nokia 6230 and I have never felt regret in having one. I used to have Nokia 6600 but not anymore.In comparison,6230 is better than 6600.The reason I say this is because 6230 has got nearly everything that the Nokia 6600 has.In saying this,I refer to the size of both phones where 6230 is very convenient.Furthermore,some of the features are far more better than the 6600.6230 looks so professional compared to 6600 whilst 6600 is suitable for posers who wants attention by having a big phone.The question to be asked is,why carry a big phone when the smaller ones have nearly the samething inside?OK,6600 has got more function but do you really use it?Features in the 6230 are very practical and you'll most probably use it in your daily life.As a conclusion,go and get a 6230 instead of 6600.You won't feel ashamed carrying a 6230 around and it's style is forever evergreen.Seriously,go for 6230.

wow this set is one of the best one,but the ringing sound is not too good as compare with the other mobile phone.but over all this set is too good.i was using K700i mobile which i sold 2 days ago beacuse 6230 has more functions then K700i,and the use of this mobile is very frequent as compare to other mobiles.i suggest u that u people sell your old mobile.
Re: Steensballe Sorin, when u make a schedule, when making it, there is an option which says Alarm Type, use the option 'with tome' and select the tone.. the phone will switch on and ring at the scheduled time.
I know that i can download the photos i make on my computer but can i download also the videos that i make ?? (by using a cable)
This phone is very clever when is "on".When is "of" and you put a schedule on your calendar at 07.00 am and you open your phone at 07.30 am only then apears your schedule on the screen.Conclusion:Day and night let this phone "on" then you use it as a reminder keper for your's every day scheduler's.When is "of" never starts at the reminding-time of your calendar!!!
i want to ask if i can get another 256 mmc card for it? if i do will it screw up the phone or i'll have to stick to the stock 32mb?
