I think this phone is looks like a calculator plus the camera on this phone is poor quality and the resolution is very low. Motorola E398 is much much better all round.
ilove this phone!!!
what a co0l and fine sst this is i m just loving it. Now a days i m using 6610i and now hope for this one 6230 with blue tooth. thank u nokia for making such a gr8 mobile.
ok i've actually took the time to READ instead of doing the easy thing of aksing people to email me the 6230's features, i'm planning on buying it in around a month and i simply cannot wait, everything i have seen and read seems flawless, and havin a bitch about for example the screen not perfect or the select button in the centre of the navigation button, i mean seriously who cares and get over it, i'll get used to it and it'd probably save me time in terms of milliseconds, so either way i'm not hazed on it..
ok, i'm a soon-to-be 16 year old for the record, and all i keep reading is it isn't suited for teenagers and that it is a business phone etc etc bla bla bla...why is this so? i mean i'm sure the 6230 would please any teenager on his/her birthday, anyway, i'll end my little opinion there, just thought i'd write something more detailed instead of my last submition.. to conclude; mad fone, but dont everyone buy one cuz i wanna show mine off, later
i have decided to buy nokia 6230. but i came to know that siemens cx65 is a nice mobile with larger screen n it is cheap.so i m having a great indecision. can any one help me to decide which 1 I will go for. plz mail me.
i havent got this fone yet but i have some questions about its features if anyone could email me at this address, thanx
Wow, the first 'real' (ie, for business people, not teenagers and bored "entertain me" 20-somethings) phone from Nokia to allow you to change the faceplate, how exciting for me. Finally my business phone can have some sparkle, even if it is just a simple colour change...
Mick, if you want a phone I'd buy the 6230, if you want a screen with a good resulution for gaming and a better camera then go with the GX30, or even the GX20 (no Bluetooth, poorer camera but still good). The 6230 is a phone for phone users who like a few multimedia frills thrown in, it's a tool, the GX's are high-tech gadgets with phones built in and are more all-round devices. A good mixture of the two would be the 6600 ot SE K700 IMHO
Should I buy the Nokia 6230 or Sharp GX 30.I like both but unsure which to choose. The 6230 looks nicer and has a better mp3 player but GX 30 has a great camera and screen,also do both the 6230 and GX 30 come with a USB cable or do i have to buy one.
Charlene and slick, u two are idiots... how can you compare 6230 to that of p800 and p900??? 6230 was meant to be compared with k700 which i believe both (6230 and k700) have evenly matched features.... really stupid of you two... I think you all heads are much bigger than Bighead
wat a name.... bighead :S
i agree with you slick, like the name, abit of big brother influience there
BIG HEAD, literally your head does seem BIG, your a trater, SE p900 let alone mentioning the p800 was the guru of all features in its generation, i see you have converted to the nokia, puh, you suck man and so do your comments
The bloody select button is a bastard though aint it!
I dont know why people are cussin this handset. How can anyone moan about the features of this phone! If you compare this phone to others of its generation then the features stand up to them if not beat them. the only phone that does is K700 and it doesnt hav mem expansion. i work in a mobile retail outlet and the 6230 is our top seller by far. I love SE and i would never buy any other but even my head started turnin when this phone was released. This phone has one of the most complete packages out at the moment and even though the screen leaves a bit to be desired it still doesnt affect the video too badly. I like this phone a lot but people are bein too badly spoiled and are expectin a bloody home entertainment system in their pocket and expect it to do them a ruddy manicure at the same time! Technology is movin all the time and at the mo this is one of the best. just be happy with what youve got. I WAS LED TO BELIEVE THERE WOULD BE PUNCH AND PIE.
AAC is half the size of MP3, but if you convert from the same original file. Convert to AAC from MP3 is no use
surfer, i'm not sure
* 2 & jenna
is it true that aac files are half the size of mp3? coz one time i tried to convert mp3 to aac the result size is just around 95% less size of mp3.
I recently picked up a 6230 and as I already have a 6600 and a lot of people wanted to know which to choose here's a few thoughts.
The 6230 is a very good phone with feature set that's hard to beat. It's also quite flawed. The screen is not only small, it's also pretty average in quality. It's perfectly fine for navigating the menus and doing the things a good phone should to, it's cr@p at displaying any kind of detailed images, be they wallpapers or photos. Nokia have made it seem worse by supplying pale, pastel and indistinct wallpapers which makes it seem even more washed out than it is. As screens go, if quality really matters to you the 6230 will leave you feeling short changed.
The keypad, despite the many complaints, is great in my opinion, with one exception. The D-Pad works fine to select a direction but to use it to select by pressing it in the middle is very hit-and-miss. This is made worse by the fact that NOKIA seem to have disabled the left hand soft button as a "select" option, a very strange move.
Build quality is good and the panels fit so well that they're a bitch to remove. Pull on the raised area that the lens sits in to remove the back.
As for the 6600, so far I have found only two real gripes, the time it takes to fire up, hardly a biggie, and it's slightly large size. In just about every respect the 6600 is a vastly superior phone with better screen, better build quality, more flexible operation, some wonderful themes available and some really great games and apps.
I didn't like the pictures of the 6600, I liked it better in the flesh and with every passing day I grow to like it more. I'm no Nokia fanboy, in fact I'm more likely to be considered anti-Nokia, but I think the 6600 will one day be seen as one of Mokia's all-time great phones.
So in short, if you like a good, solid, hard working phone that does it all well, the 6630 is a good choice if you can accept the shortcomings. It probably appeals to the same user that would still rate the 6310i as an all-time great (http://www.nokia.com/nokia/0,,133,00.html)
However, if the slightly flabby sides don't turn you cold, and the lack of a built-in radio isn't essential, I have to suggest the 6600 as the better phone every time.
The MMC card does not work at all. I have bought a new card - does not work. Existing card does not work in card reader - pile of poo - not happy.
