I have been a big fan of Nokia products starting with the first Nokia 232 Analogue Phone and have had another six models since. I recently purchased a Nokia 6230 Phone and have had nothing but problems with it. When I first started using the phone I noticed that the profiles section did not work but later found out that this is easily fixed by resetting the factory settings on the phone. My next problem was that every time I use the Hands free kit and when I start talking it crackles a lot, to the point of becoming unbearable if you talk for a long period of time. Since the phone was still under the exchange warranty period I received a new Nokia 6230. When I started using the new phone I found that the crackling problem was still there which makes me think that it wasn’t just my phone that was faulty but it must be a problem with all 6230 phones. Also another problem with the new phone is if I charge it overnight and go to turn it on in the morning the time, date and world time is reset in which case my wake up Alarm wont work. I might just have been unlucky with the phone but I am truly disappointed with a Phone that boasts so many features and they cant even get the basic features right.
I have just bought a new nokia 6230 but when trasferring numbers from my nokia 7250 via infa red it stops after 15 numbers does anyone know why ar is there a way round it
NOKIA or any other company will never accept an unofficially previewed product. They won't want the customers to wait for the future product before they sell out the limit they expected to sell with the current product...
This phone is just totally awesome. It's got everything. MP3, radio, camara, video player/recorder. What else could you need?
6230i has been officially denied by nokia, and they call the article from mobile-review absurd, nonsense, and far from reality... there is NO 6230i...
6230 is full stereo MP3 + stereo FM radio
I'm thinking to buy this phone. But reading this opinions i wanna think twice now. I readed on a site that will be a 6230i with a larger dispay in september 2004, is this true ? Playing mp3-s is stereo ? I wanna true advice if you can give me. Thank you.
6230 OS is nokia OS or what they refere to as Series 40 V.2.0, most of the other series 40 nokias are V. 1.x
to change to 4 min. recording or maximum rec.
goto menu-> Media-> camera-> settings-> video clip length and then select Maximum
there is no real one player for 6230, not yet anyway...
do you know what O.S. is this one? do you have some software?
Hello!I need some help. Please, does somebody know if the 6230 has Real One Player or Package Video Program. i know it has audio and video streaming technology but i really need to know if the 6230 has one of those players because that would allow me to watch Tv on my cellphone.Please Nokia people contact me as soon as possible coz i wanna buy this phone. Thanks
the 6230 is an very bad phone. its a little boy who thinks he's grown up.
there are complains everywhere.
and just to think about the small screen is enough to see that nokia is exploiding there custumors.
phone pimp: what good is watching an episode of the simpsons on the small screen of the 6230? ha memory enough but screen space short. come back when your grown up
it must be the forum editor. copy the link, remove the space between "en" and "." so it should be en.shtml
@unknown: maybe its the radio that drains power then? Also it is a good idea to completely discharge and then fully recharge the battery a few times at first use. Even tho its Li-Ion :)
I listened to mp3 for about 3-4 hours, made SOME phone calls (not much) and played some games. its got 2 stripes left, 3.5 days and counting...
@Domino thats exciting news... and shitty :( bigger screen AND 1 megapixel camera!!! Dammit
anyway the link should be
Then again there will be newer and cooler phones coming out all the time... thats just how it goes isnt it
thats also why i have a one-year abonnement only, so in a year i'll go for a cooler phone again :) (one with a 2 megapixel optical zoom camera :) )
