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!
Yes it's possible to by a new cover for your phone. Just vist your nearest Cellular sales store, repair shop or Nokia dealer.
can i buy a new cover for my 6230 becouse i´ve broken it..and i'm in need of a new cover!!!help!!!
this nokia is just excellent...
1GB MMC works with 4.28 or 4.40 but it works best with 5.24 and higher. I believe Nokia have an adapter which allows you to use 3.5mm headphones.
There is NO known application that gives you unlimited recording time and the N70 supports more colour and has a higher resolution so photos will look clearer on it compared to the 6230 screen.
The 6230 handles video more smoothly because it's a faster phone, much faster than the N70.
Your 6230 supports 1GB. I have v5.24 and my Trandscend 1GB works perfectly.
Do a factory reset and see if that helps.
If that doesn't work, do a factory reset again and immediately take the battery out of the phone while it is on.
If none of the above doesn't work you may have to get it flashed.
Take out the SIM and MEMORY CARD and see if it comes on without them.
If it still doesn't work you could try a different battery.
If none of the above works then the best solution would be to get it flashed. Flashing can solve booting problems.
If flashing doesn't work then I'm afraid your phone probably died.
Hi o.j. & all users. I have a little problem with this fon. 2 days ago, when i put on the fon, the screen was just black and this has been so for the past 1 week. What is wrong with it. Any soln?

Hi o.j. and fellow users. Does any of u know the code for flashin this phone? I have tried *#7780# but all though it restored the factory settings. It didnt erase the viruses on my friends 6230. We desperately need help so if there is any code like that plse help us.
Hi O.J. and all 6230 users and fans, i have some comments to make about this fons display and camera quality. Recently, i copied some of the pics i took to my fathers n93 & i was surprised at the pics quality. It looked superb. I also copied a pic from the n93 to my fon and the pic quality wasnt what i expected. It was as if I'd takin the pic with my fon. I concluded that the bigger the screen, the clearer or the better the pic quality. Also i had an opportunity of handlin the n70 and comparin the videos, i saw that the n70, even though very clear, it has breakages like a motorola cam. For this fon, i saw no breakages but the quality wasnt very clear. I want to know where i can get an app on this fon that can give me unlimited video recording and better recording quality like how the opera mini browser used to browse. Can any one help me?

Hi to all N 6230 fans out there. And hats off to original jamaican. I was the user of N6230. I had loved it. Especially its music. I used it as my mp3 player. As i want to use next phn again n again, I exchangd it with Nokia 7610. Its fine bt 6230 is way ahead. Now i want to go back to 6230. My fren has gt one. So i am trying to purchase it frm him. I enjoyd reading ur thnking of 6230 classic. I agree in that too. Nokia should think about it. I thnk 2 mp camera, big screen same design n keypad, 256 k color, bluetooth stereo headset, themes change, msg memory change, office files like word excel powerpoint zip, etc. should b in it. N now i got sum question to original jamaican. It may b had discussd b4 but u knw i hav not been in this forum for so long. How can we duplicate messages, does it support 1gb memory card ( i used 512mb before), can i use 3.55 mm jack for the headset using adapter? Pls answer my question. Thanx in advance. Waiting for ur reply.
the other thin is that it will state that phone memory is full while there is a space on the folders(Why?) And it does not resieve sum images from other phones.
can u pliase help me to use mp3. it does nt appear in my phones menu. nokia 6230
