This phone is absolutely THE best....i have had mine for 3years now and i've found it to be the most compatible and reliable mobile ever.
Talk about durability...i would be lying if i told you my phone has never taken a fall..but it has proven worthy and can really withstand the tests of time.
I'm struggling to replace this phone with one that can compare - the one my son is using is now giving some problems and needs to be replaced (he has a new phone which is lying in his cupboard because it just does not measure up) - THE NOKIA 6230 HAS HAD THREE OWNERS IN 4 YRS. What an excellent phone. What value for money.
this was truly a wonderful phone to have at the time. stucked with it even though ppl bragged bout the 6230i with 1.3 camera. i was like whateva dude! best phone
Im still looking for a Used 6230 to Buy, i still miss this phone aloot
i only had it for 6 months and enjoyed every moment of it!
Simply just Love the 6230 alot
I Hope i find one..6230 is a Legend
legendary phone, legendary features & legendary performer at lightening speed.
That's true OJ, this is the phone that I had for a longer time. 2 years and it's hardly to say that I'll keep a phone for that time again. I have memories every time when I saw a 6230 (today I saw a woman with one, when she received a message comming with the classic message tone). Great moments with that great piece. OJ, I'm very glad to see you again in this forum, as always a proud ex-owner of this great phone
When Nokia first released this phone they said "Precision Enjoy it".
I certainly enjoyed mines for over 2 years.
This is the longest phone I ever kept because I normally change my phone annually.
I don't care what nobody says, the Nokia 6230 is the best, stongest and durable bluetooth/mp3/infrared phone Nokia ever brought out. You can throw it down, if it falls into water it still goes on.
How's that?? I'm pretty sure that *#925538# (wallet) is the right code. I had found that code on my user manual when I had my 6230 and it worked for me. Well maybe it had passed so much time since that and I gave to you a wrong code, a shame that I haven't the manual anymore.
About the pc suite, yes you should backup all your contacts, messages and everything on the phone memory that you want to keep after the update because as you said, the update restore all your phone with factory settings and the other files after factory will be deleted.
This phone has been amazing to me. I've had it since it came out. It has been thrown, crushed, dropped on the concrete, dropped in water (3 times), taken to the beach, etc. and still it drives on. If the battery wasn't failing the the cover not getting to be impossible to replace, I'd keep it still. Farewell to my good friend. If only phone manufacturers made items of this quality anymore...
i tried typing the code that u sed thru d main screen but i cant type the word wallet just the *# only. even thru the code for wallet. so how's that? re pc suite...great atlis i can transfer all my mesg to my pc, coz if i decided to upgrade my 6230 it will automatically reformatted ryt? so i wanted to save all of my mesgs..
This phone, after 4 years of service, has finally caved in on me, and I just have to thank it for its brilliance. 4 years of getting dropped, getting smashed, getting dropped in water, and it still worked.
I salute you Nokia, you hold sentimental value!
You have taken over from me. You are doing an excellent job my freind (smile).
If I'm not wrong the only way to retrieve your wallet code is by wallet reset. Just type on the main screen: *#wallet# but this way you'll erase all your entries in the wallet, but you'll be able to use it again with a new code.
It's true that with Nokia PC suite you can view and backup you messages, contacts and you whole internal memory.
It's posible to solve the problem only in one way: To take your phone to a Nokia center to update or reinstall the firmware. But the consequences will be: The lost of your contacts and messages, only the default items will come back.
@the last who post:
This phone doesn't play mp4 videos. It plays only 3gp videos (QCIF resolution with amr audio) but in high quality. The EDGE only works when it's available by your service provider. The 6230 doesn't have settings for EDGE conectivity, it works automatically when available.
It doesn't activate an EDGE service. It doesn't play MP4. How can solve these problems?
