I bought the first batch of this phone available in HK. It didn't come with the CD-ROM and instead there was a peice of fax back form telling me to fax em telling em the address to send the CD-ROM to when they have stock. Quite dissapointed that there's no data cable included for such an expensive phone! IR is highly compatible with computers and other phones (unlike Sharps' GX-32) Only probs i find is Bluetooth hangs sometimes when you disconnect or unpair. Needs a hard reboot (switching it off and on again). I've had it auto reboot on me b4 too (shi*, microsoft syndrome?? XD). Functions are GREAT. You can transfer files DIRECTLY to the mmc without having to buy another card reader. Can use MP3 as ringing tones. Screensaver works with GIF files in which the picture is animated as a screensaver. The only complains I have is the casing on it is crap. It squeaks and doesn't snap on tightly. The keypad is a bit clumsy for ppl with large thumbs. Menu icons are NOT animated unlike other older nokia models. Radio needs the headset (included with phone) to be connected in order to work. Battery life is OK, it stays at FULL GAUGE for quite a long time but when the battery meter starts dropping, it drops extremely fast! I'd say this phone overall scores 8/10.
Is anyone experiencing the same problems like mine-All transfer photos from another phone to my phone and the animated cannot be mms out except those by default or the phone itself took the photos.
Previously using the 6600 that do not faced such problems, everything ok.
If really cannot, thinking of change back to Nokia 6600......Pls advise, thanks.

I use my 6230 4 about 3 weeks now.I trade a Samsung E700 for it. I don't know if it was too wise doin that.the finishing is pretty crap on the 6230..as well as the menu colours.Lots of useful functions tho.Not satisfied about the battery life.Already got problems with the acustics..Too bad for this pretty expensive handset.I can't wait for a new Samsung phone commin'out
I've finally bought this phone. The build quality is SHIT - this is a toy made out of chaeap plastic. Drop it and it's dead forever. The platic creaks when you hold the phone and press a button. I can't believe Nokia made this cheap crap and sell it for £300!! Lots of hot air here about features etc, but what about BUILD QUALITY? This is crap. I'm sending it back for a refund. Very disappointed - I'll never buy a Nokia again.
What kind of models? I'm waiting 4 Motorolla V1000, but it will be out only at the end of the year. It's too long, I need a good phone now, so I'm thinking of buying 6230, and when V1000 will be out, I'll sell 6230 and buy V1000 :)
Just don't buy any of them. Keep your old phone for few more months. There are some good models coming out.
