Dani or 786, 26 Jul 2008Do you still have your 6230 ?Ohyes, never been so satisfied. Since spring 04.
New battery and shell once.
Thinking of E71 as replacement / additional phone, because of IP-telephony.
Original_Jamaican, 17 Jul 2008NO, the 6230 doesn't support themes.Do you still have your 6230 ?
ALex, 18 Jul 2008Does it worth to exchange the regular 6230 to the 6230i with th cost of 45$??Keep the 6230, 6230i isnt as good
ALex, 18 Jul 2008Does it worth to exchange the regular 6230 to the 6230i with th cost of 45$??Personally I don't think that it worth it, not because 6230i isn't better than 6230, it's slightly better in UI, camera, display and internal memory but I think that the price difference is too much for an almost 4 years old phone. That price difference was the same when 6230i came out to the market so that is my personal opinion about your query. Afterall 6230 is slightly better than 6230i on interface speed and battery life. I think you should keep your 6230
Does it worth to exchange the regular 6230 to the 6230i with th cost of 45$??
xkillerx, 17 Jul 2008how do i get 1gb memory card for 6230 and can you get themesNO, the 6230 doesn't support themes.
Finally i found nokia 6230, i buy with cheap price about $67, yes its second hand, but i very happy finally i found it, then i upgrade my firmware to 05.50 and can be detect 1 GB MMC, mbe i will try to 2 GB MMC, if there is anyone who use 2 GB memory, please tell me...
you all are wrong because this set shows 1 gb space on a 1 gb mmc card and as well as 2 gb mmc card can also be used with it. i hve this cell phone and its gr8 currently i m using 2 gb mmc card and it is working perfect and it also shows whole 2 gb space
Mines, 04 Jul 2008oic thanks OJ for the info!! but if im willing to upgrade my previous firmware into a 5.24 do ... moreYou cannot upgrade it yourself unless you have a flashing box with the required F-BUS, M-BUS cables. Even so, it's better to let someone savvy about the process do it. This flashing equipment is expensive and the entire procedure may overwhelm you.
Take it to any Nokia Care Centre or any shops who repairs cell phones. The cost shouldn't be that great from a Nokia Care Centre but the cost may be fairly high from a regular repair shop. Just check around and compare prices. I would suggest you start with the Nokia Centre first.
oic thanks OJ for the info!! but if im willing to upgrade my previous firmware into a 5.24 do you have any idea where can i download it? ty
mines, 01 Jul 2008so now we all know that a 3.15 version doesn't work in 1gb.. where can we find a upgrades such... moreTo MINES:
3.15 may work with a 1GB MMC. It's just that it will report the wrong size for the card.
You will still be able to store up to 1GB if the card is recognized. However, the phone WON'T tell you that you have 1GB of data on the card.
If you want to upgrade to 5.24 (which to me is the best of all 6230's firmwares) you will have to visit a Nokia Care Centre / Nokia Care Point and have one of the technicians flash the phone for you for a small fee seeing that more than likely your phone isn't under warranty.
You can also visit other repair shops. Basically any repair shop which fixes cellphones should be able to do it for you.
so now we all know that a 3.15 version doesn't work in 1gb.. where can we find a upgrades such as the 5.24 version that seems cool
This phone is very suprising.. This phone can download stuff os stuff and then bluetooth to other devices too install. I use mines for the internet. I have had my for years and it still works. It fell of tables chair beds and still performs. The figure mite appear limited but once you learn this phone huh, what can i say. I got a gb in it too. Its not to slow this phone can take jamming.. I love it.
Original_Jamaican, 24 Jun 2008If the legendary 6230 was released in 2008 instead of 2004, based on the advanced features it ... moreSounds like your deccribing the 6220 Classic or N82
there both as good as modern day 6230's
but still 6230 is just the Best..
