Did you already bought 6300??
Or you chose it, but you havenīt bought it yet??
I think itīs a good choise, enjoy your new phone, and I hope to see your comments in this 6230 forum, even if you already have 6300 to help people with problems on their 6230s. Iīm going to sell my 6230 tomorrow or tuesday to one of my cousins so I know itīll be in good hands and itīs for much the best phone I ever had. I was thinking on a replacement and maybe Iīll pick 6300 too. 6233 isnīt available in my country but maybe iīm going to wait a little more to see more models to come to my country. If not come any of my interest Iīll keep on my mind the idea to buy 6300. Please when you have your first weeks with your 6300 please comment us your experience with it. Maybe that will help me to my decission. thanks in advance
The biggest debate for the year is whether the 6230 successor's is Nokia 6300 or 6233. It's something that will make your head hurt. I will tell you why I chose the 6300 as my true replacement.
First of all the phone is the same as 6230's whereas the 6233 can only accomodate 500 contacts, big downgrade there for me. The 6300 is lighter in weight, 91 grams whereas the 6233 is 110 grams. The 6300 software is MORE enhanced with Feature Pack 2 compared to 6233's Feature Pack 1. The 6300 comes with Macromedia Flash Lite 2.0 whereas 6233 comes with Flash Lite 1.1. MOST OF ALL the 6300's screen BLOWS away the 6233 with 16.7 Million 24 bit true colour compared to 6233's 262,000 colours. Finally it's slimmer and more attractive. I'm NOT saying the 6300 is better than the 6233 in every area, all I'm saying is that I weighed the pros and cons between both devices between both phones and decided to go with the 6300. We all know that with Nokia you give and take when it comes to similarly configured phones but in the end one particular model stands tall. My primary reason and the most important reason for purchasing a phone is the telephony department and the 6300 beats the 6233 with it's 1,000 capacity phone book.
Hey Jamaican....nice to hear that at last you have changed your phone. personally i don't think 6300 is a better phone. the battery life is for a day only and camera is not good and the phone becomes hot while talking. i used this model in March 2007 and got rid of it within a month. now i own the slimmest phone in the world i.e. Samsung u100 (5.9 mm) which blows other models. the features that i like on u100 are below:
1. Built in answering machine (which saves money on accessing your voice mail)
2. Reject list (this helps when you don't want receive call/message from someone particular, you can add his no. in the reject list and he/she cannot access you)
3. Whisper mode (this helps when you are in a noisy environment, the person on the other side can hear you voice loud and clear, which i have tried and really works well)
4. Camera is 3.2 mega pixel and video records in Mp4 format.
5. Very wide screen and one will enjoy reading messages.
6. Multiple alarms.
The best modern phone replacement for the 6230 is the nokia 6233. It's better than the 6300 because it has stereo speakers and an infra red port. The software on the 6300 is the same as that of the 6233 and they are both s40 3rd edition. They also have similar a screen size and they both have the same features. The best replacement for 6230 is 6233 and not 6300. I'm having trouble with this phone(6230) because I can't delete any of the saved configuration settings. Please if any of us know how to delete this please tell us on this forum. Thanks in advance
To the unknown:
well, 6120c isnīt the newer 6230, but it has a shape and something that remember me the 6230. but for my point of view itīs the best sucessor for my 6230. And that because Iīm looking for a phone with S60, and I heard so many good points of this phone. I have read the review, and I love it. great for me, but only waiting for its introduction to Mexican market, but Iīm almost sure that itīll be here because I think itīll be a best seller
What LUIS said is worthy of your contemplation but the ONLY phone I saw a real need to get at this moment in time was the 6300. For 2 years I kept my old 6230 because I didn't see anything better to upgrade to...until now. I still have my old 6230 but the 6300 has blown it away...I never thought a phone would astound me after using the legendary 6230. The 6300 has changed that course and has gotten me excited again!!!
You need to think in some things.
First: what type of phone do you want?? If you want a real eye catcher, beauty and top materials phone, there is the 7373.
But if you want a phone more serious, classic designed but elegant and with top quality materials too there is the 6300.
And well you were talking about the 7373 but if I can suggest one phone to pick up I can suggest you the 6120c. I have heard so many good opinions of this phone and has a good price equivalent to the other two phones (7373 and 6300) and it has Symbian OS and 3.5G but less quality materials.
SECOND: The equipment of both phones are very good. All of them have 2mpx camera, 2" 16m color displays, lightweight (specailly 6120c even if itīs a smartphone), FM radio and mp3, bluetooth 2.0 with A2dp (stereo bluetoth). The three have excellent equipment and the only cmoplain I have of them is the battery life (maybe you will need to charge anybody of them daily or 2 days especially 7373 because its smaller capacity battery)compared to my 6230 which sometimes live 3 days without charge. But if you donīt care to have to charge it every day or second day anyone is a good choice. I am really thinking on wait to 6120c or pick the 6300 (and I donīt care if I need to charge one of them daily). So itīs your choice, which phone you prefer. You wonīt regret anyone of them. Good luck
Sorry to hear about your phone but I need to correct you on one thing. The Nokia 6230 wasn't released 4 years ago. It was officially released in April 2004 so it's 3 years since it's release.
Instead of going for the 7373 I would suggest you go with the 6300. The Nokia 6300 is said to be the real successor for the 6230. I have my Nokia 6230 as of this writing and I still LOVE my 6230. However, so far, the Nokia 6300 is the BEST selling phone of 2007 and believe me it doesn't take a genius to see why, it has beauty and brains and it's selling like hotbread. Pick up one before everywhere is out of stock.
Read this article. It tells about the major sales Nokia have had this year and the Nokia 6300 is one of the MAIN reasons.
Hope you found my advice helpful.
well, i've had this phone since it first came out, i.e - more than 4 years ago, and i NEVER had any problems with it. i was in love with it from start to finish.. until it fell in some deep water.. and since then it died. i loved that phone more than anything and even before it fell, i was discovering new features on it (i'm a serious cell phone junkie) so that was unbelieveable to me. i love it. you should love it too.. and it lasts a liftime (if only mine did..)
now i'm thinking of getting the nokia 7373. is it worth it?
please can any one tell me how to delete the configurations settings saved on this fon for firm ware v4.4
Hi there.Can someone tell me if i can fit a 6230i cover to my girlfriend 6230?Just the cover,not the keypad.Thanks
