I bought a new 6230i at Rs. 15,350/- (with bill + warranty) from Kolkata, India. That wud be "290.746 EURO" or "US$ 352.428". I think it has best value for money. With a 1.3 mega-pixel camera, 64MB memory (upgradable to 512MB), 35 mins video capture with sound (depends on free memory - mine was 54MB free), Stereo FM radio (best feature of the phone may be when heard over head-set), Bluetooth, EDGE (TV clips), internet (MMS, Email, HTML browser), 208X208 pixel 65K TFT screen ... it is the best buy now. It has everything which a phone can have :-)
Ring tone sound is a bit low though ..
And when u take a photo .. the picture appears to be taken at night (a little bit shading/darkening - which didnt happen in 6230). Contacts cannot hold multiple numbers under one name (which my C100 cud). Camera shutter makes a BIG noise while taking the still photo. During Video capture the distant sounds were crystal clear during playback, but the nearby sounds were a bit distorted.
Still best in the market other than Sony Erickson S700i, which comes at double the price. Nokia communicator 9500 doesnt have megapixel camera. And some of the models dont have radio.
I have bought 6230i around 1 month ago.
This one had been made in Hungary. It does not have any problem with mp3 player except the difficult handling of tracklist, it couldn't be changed to the prefered tracks! the loudspeaker is great and without any problem. the camera is very good (as good as an average quality digital camera) and the video recording is better than 6230, 6600 and 7610 as I experienced.
i have some little problems with this phone, video player sometimes hangs and phone restart! this is not depend to the length of video file.
my phone could not play some certain sort of WAVE format files!
the ringtone ascending sound was not such a terrible problem to me.
but the most irritating problem is the application installation, coz most (almost 100% of them!) of symbian compatable applications could not be installed on this phone.
although, I think that's a great phone!
I would be thankful if anybody could help me about applications problem.
i can't here anything when connect headphone with my nokia 6230i. when i test the headphone with my friend's 6230 it's working properly. It is true that the new version of 6230i cannot support headphone?

plz tell me soon.i'll be very thankful 2 u.
I have to chose between Nokia 6230i and 6680 and i don't know what phone to chose! And need your opinion ...
Sounds like your speaker is broke then because mine works fine with mp3's and poly tones. Send it back for repair!
hye, i think there was a problem about 6230i's speaker. don't u think it's too too too loud? now i only use level 1 for my speaker volume,coz when i turn to higher level like 3 or 4 or 5, it's produced "broken" sound or something sound like bzzzzzzzzzzz in the background..ahhh im very2 disappointed!

Just wondering this phone is good, Why does nokia made it with Symbian OS? Whats the difference? For all expert ppl out there pls. share your info...Tnx
The ascending volume in ringing tone is not a problem to me. In fact I like it coz it starts off low (in an office - that's recommendable) then starts to shout.
A shortcut over menu... is by pressing the numbers of the menu, for example, if you want to open up Music Player, then press 'Menu', Press 6, then press 3... in quick succession. (I know you can also use Voice to activate menu... haven't tried that yet).
If other users know any other way, pls share.
hi... can smb tell me if the menu of the phone slows down ? can you manage a quick moovment along the menu ? and is the video and picture qualiti good ?
I think all the 6230i have this ringing and message tone. It work like ascending from soft to loud but if you choose a short tone then problem of hearing. I set a longer tone so that is ascending to loud for both ringing and message tone.
I tried and set to loud many times and still the same ascending. I gave up and just get a longer tone to overcome it. Previously, I used 6230 and it doesn't have this problem at all.
