The screen of Nokia 6230 is not large enough.I'm satisfied with all the function,but the colour display is only 65K.I hope that the color of Nokia will improve to 250K as the rest of the other phone.
ConfusedBuyer: To play movies in the N6230, you need to convert the file to 3GPP format. This is easily done via Nokia's PCSuite s/ware that comes with the phone. It compresses to a significantly small size file.
6230 Boy: Transfer it using PC Suite's File Transfer module. (But read above first) Simple.
Just curious, how big would the full movies be? I mean do you need to compress it? I mean even a short racing video takes up at least 5-10 mb. Any limit on transfer rate? Because I was interested and tempted to buy gx32 before. But the 400kb per file transfer really pissed me off, and that phone would cost me a fortune. Anyhow, I live in Toronto, Canada. I just saw a display 6230 phone on sale for $520 CAD, that would be $388 US. IS that an ok deal? I know other places in Toronto would be more expensive.
Im really UNSURE to go for 6230 or K700...:(((( help me!! or should I wait for K730?? lol!!!

I've this phone yesterday and i love it 100%.U get 2 play video clips,listen to music and dowload tight songs as ring tones.The cam's clear and the video too.I really luv it,its the best phone i've used so far
Hi! I am a 6230 owner and I think it's a wonderful device. With an optional 256 mb memory it becomes very useful.
Some minuses: When listening mp3 my 6230 sometimes switches itself off and on again and the music stops. Winding up music tracks is unusefully slow when listening "whole cd in one" -tracks. With one minute up winding beat goes 7,5 min forward.
Also: When T9 input is on, it is impossible to put own letter corrections into words that are written with T9. If you want to repair a letter in the middle of a word, you have to switch T9 off first. Taht slows down writing.
Also video capture is about 50 x 50 pixels four minutes, but it's better than no video.
There is no phone adapter, so you have to listen all music from basic weak bass phones, or you have to build your own interfaces. (Of course the elements are long-lasting, because they don't vibrate so much)
Taken all together: 6230 is a wonderful and versatile phone, that has lightspeed menus. When you suggest some function that includes no bigger data, you can't find time to wait. Also data moves fast according to other manufacturers' phones. There is no phone that has no drawbacks. 6230 has only few of them! So if you're thinking "Should I buy?" I recommend you to buy. If you want to ask me something, just mail me.
yes i think that is the total internal memory size, wen u add ur used and free memory together u get it, my total size of memory is 5.something, not the 6/7 like it sez in the manual, this is likely to be due to messages or applications or sumthing, not too sure...
To Risto or any 6230 user,
just go to SETTINGS, PHONE SETTINGS, Memory Status then choose handset. I think the 'Size'refers to your total internal memory. Right guys?
I just don't know why my internal memory status increases as i put more files, it supposed to be doing the opposite.
It is not good to overload your internal and memory cards with files right? i think it will nake your phone (any phone)slower. Right guys?
Kytra: I use WinXp & PCSuite6.4 via Bluetooth. No problem accessing into the MMC. On PCSuite, just click on "Transfer Files" icon. Your WinExplorer pops up. Under MyComputer, u'll see yr phone. Just click and go to Phone Memory (B).
Risto: Bluetooth is definitely faster. But try to avoid xfering huge files >500Kb... usually ~50% success rate. I dunno, but somehow, Nokia's BT's not stable enough for that kinda job. I use card reader for mp3.
BTW, my firmware ver is 4.28
