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

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.

there both as good as modern day 6230's
but still 6230 is just the Best..
mackee, 24 Jun 2008i hav V3.15 only.. can i put 1gb?Totally agree with OJ, he has just said it all :)
mackee, 24 Jun 2008i hav V3.15 only.. can i put 1gb?If you try to use a 1GB MMC while running v3.15, chances are it won't work or if it does work...it will show only 80MB as total capacity.
However, if it works and states the overall memory as 80MB don't worry because you can store stuff above 80MB until it reaches the full capacity of 1GB. The problem is you won't know exactly how much stuff you have on the memory card once you pass 80MB as the phone will tell you that you only have 80MB of stuff on the card when you may in fact have about 500MB of stuff on it.
It's just a bug with earlier firmwares. This bug (and support for higher capacity cards) was fixed in later firmwares like 5.24 and higher.
My advice to you is try the 1GB and see what happens, try it before buying it.
If the legendary 6230 was released in 2008 instead of 2004, based on the advanced features it came with back then, it would probably have Wi-Fi, built in GPS and all those other high-end features you find in the N & E series.
I have finally found a 6230, cant wait to buy it!!!!!!!
6230 is the Best Nokia !!

I never tried a 2gb MMC but 1gb should be enough for this phone. To check the firmware just type *#0000# on standby
