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 can´t use GPRS, but now my web pages load without problems and I haven´t 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 can´t recognize them and I have 140+ songs so it´s 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 can´t 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.
No, you can´t use a SD card no matter what the size is on your 6230. it was designed to support MMC cards only and if the size between SD and MMC is the same, the contacts are different, so it didn´t work.
I would go with the 6230 seeing that SMS and calls are your main priority. Let me explain why...
The 6230i improves on certain features that the original 6230 has, BUT, a few useful SMS features have also been removed. With the original 6230, when you receive a text message and you choose to reply, you are given templates to reply with or just an empty screen. That is so useful! Some of the options are:
Template (where it goes in the main template section for you to choose one of the predefined templates)
and quite a few more to choose from. All of this just by a hit of the 'Reply' command.
When you choose reply with the 6230i, you are presented with a blank screen to write your text.
Also, the original 6230 is FASTER than the 6230i, especially when accessing the MMC.
With the original 6230 being faster, that means you will be able to dial your contacts a tad bit faster.
The ORIGINAL NOKIA 6230 is the clear CHOICE MZ.
Hi OJ and all other 6230 users, I'm planning to get this phone as my second phone for mainly calls and sms. Should I take this one or pay a little more to get 6230i? I've been using Nokia 6030, and like Nokia for its user-friendly sms function, but 6030 doesn't support MP3 for ringtones. So I'm thinking of getting 6230/6230i... Another choice of mine is Nokia 6111. I just want a Nokia phone with MP3 ringtones and bluetooth. Kindly advise and recommend. Thanks!
