No you canīt play mp4 or any other video files only 3gp. But if you arenīt satisfied with 3gp quality this phone can play very high quality 3gp videos without run them slow or anything wrong. I can recommend you a very good video converter for FREE: Apex free 3gp video converter. In this you can convert 3gp files up to 30fps. Note: in the settings only be sure to put the size of he video in 176*144 and with amr sound (this phone doesnīt play 3gp videos with aac sound)
halu, im from philippines

When i first got the 6230 i was curious whether i would like it or not, but when i got it it Exceeded my expectations 100% !! i Loved it soo much its one of the best phones i ever owned, Design 1 of the Best, Battery Life was really good, MP3 Player was wicked!, Camera Performed really Good, Excellent Keypad, Great Display, Great Build Quality!, Menu was FASSSSSST!
its just Pure PERFECTION!
as Nokia said it would be
To 786 & BEN:
As many have said, the extremely high quality screen on the 6300 is enough to make you want the phone.
786, I have a theme of a beautiful lady which pushes the screen to the limit. It's relatively small too at 176KB. If you like I can send it to your mailbox.
6233 really isnt a capable upgrade to this LEGENDARY 6230, 6233 as OJ has said has 500 Phonebook capacity which is a downgrade from 1,000 , 6300 has 1,000 capacity Phonebook and Feels like a PURE UPGRADE to the 6230
but since Nokia made 6233 aswell its up to you which one one suites you out the 2 Phones
The 6233 may have a few more features than the 6300 but it doesn't have a high capacity phone book. It makes no sense to downgrade from the 6230's 1,000 contacts phone book to the 6233's 500 contacts phone book limit. What is more important, multimedia features or telephony features ?
i think nokia 6233 is the best replacement to the 6230. the disadvantage with using the 6300 is that it has no stereo speakers. my mom just got a 6300 and having played with it, its not that wild as the 6230. also the 6233 has 3g and infrared.
I think 6301 can be a good replacement to 6230, but I donīt think is available yet. So you can consider the 6300 too. A cool adition to 6301 over 6300 is WLAN but at least in many countries isnīt available.
If you are looking for an all-in-one device you should look for an S60 phone like 6120 classic or E51. But the most direct sucessor of your 6230 definitely is 6300. Hope this to be helpful to you and is a great idea to keep your 6230 even if you buy another phone. I still keep it after 2 years eevn if I have a 6681 but I use both.
i've had this phone for the last three years. and as many of u have mentioned, it is by far the BEST...
I'm trying to replace it though i won't sell it..
any ideas what I should get? I saw the 6301 and I;m considering that...
If you want a slower phone go with S60, like the 6120 classic that LUIS mentioned. If you want something reminiscent of the 6230 in terms of speed and features then go with the 6300 as DANI recommended. The 6300 in my view is the best upgrade to 6230. The 6300 is also the best selling phone for the year and the 6300 has the best screen around. The screen is crystal clear and is said to be better than any other phone screen, LCD Monitor or HD-TV. Check out the 6300.
It depends on which type of phone do you want. Because I could recommend you an S60 phone like 6120 classic (I aws going to buy that phone) or 5700. But from S40 I could recommend you 6300. at the end the decision is yours but you can be more specific and this way help you on a better way
I've been using this for the last 2 years, and I think is time to improve my cellphone.
which one do you recommend?
this is almost the best phone, but it can be better
This is the phone NOKIA cannot replace with any other phone, I have being using mine for the past 3 years and its still serving its purpose. I will recommend it to anybody, anytime anyday. Such a Handy phone for all sex.
Yeah visit Mexico, Iīm not making a commercial and this isnīt my purpose but here 6230 is very cheap like the 6681 I have (it cost me 90 US new). But 6230 is better phone. In addition Mexico is a beautiful country with beautiful places to visit. After 2 years my rear case is partially broken but the software part is still like when it was new.
I think this is the best phone ever. I have been using 6230 for last 4 yrs and its working absolutely fine. It has dropped down for more than 8-10 times, the working condition is excellent. I am sure it would still last for another 5yrs.
