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
the nokia 6230 supports 2GB MMC???????
I have 1GB MMC and my phone run fine
I reinstalled Opera mini v3.1 in my 6230 and now it works fine. I canīt use GPRS, but now my web pages load without problems and I havenīt to wait a lot of time, even if I only have CSD available. Da best fone, 1 year and 7 months with it, only my original grey with black cover is scatched, but the keypad is still like new and the interface still very fast. A very durable and loyal phone.
Do you had problems creating playlists in Nokia Music Manager??? my phone canīt recognize them and I have 140+ songs so itīs too slow to search one song
Maybe you are right. Maybe your connection is too slow and you need to wait longer. As you mention that I remember that GPRS is faster. Wait and see what happens.
My version is 3.1 too, but my provider in mexico only supports GPRS and EDGE with contract and my phone is a prepaid one. So I canīt use GPRS nor EDGE. Do you think that if I uninstall and install again Opera mini on my 6230 would work??? Or you think that maybe my connection is too slow and I need to wait more time to see the web pages??
I have Opera Mini on my 6230 and it works fine...worked fine from day one. I use GPRS as that's the only thing my provider supports. Didn't know CSD still existed. What version of Opera Mini are you using ? I'm using 3.1 and previously I used version 2. Both of them works perfectly.
I just commented a few minutes before but I have a question to anyone that installed the Opera mini browser in his/her 6230.
Did it worked??, because I installed it on my nokia 6230 v5.50 trough data cable transfer and it seems to be ready to work. but when I insert an address or want to search for something it only displays a legend on the lower part of the screen: processing... and 30 seconds latter the data call is finished and it remains processing. Is this normal?? Do I need to wait several minutes to get displayed the web page?? My conection is through CSD only, because the HSCSD and EDGE are only available on contract.
