My phone DOESN'T have a 'certificates' menu so that simply means you phone uses a older firmware. I have not used 4.44, 5.24. 5.35 and 5.50 and never came across that particular menu.
I use Opera Mini too. It's a wonderful browser. What would be more wonderful right now is if our NETWORK PROVIDER gave us free internet access (smile).
The Nokia 6230 can handle up to 2GB but it would be best to have firmware v5.24 or later otherwise a 2GB MMC might be glitchy.
The only way to really improve the quality of video recording is by transferring the recording to a PC, then use a 3gp software like Nokia Multimedia Converter 2.0 or Allok Video to 3G Converter. Set the bitrate to a minimum of 128kbps. Nokia Converter 2 maxes out at 128kbps and Allok maxes out at 512. Once you set it to 128 or higher you should see a discernable difference...in some cases you may not but try my suggestion. Hope this works out for you.
To BROOK & HILDEBRANDO:
YES the Nokia 6230 supports 512MB and 1GB MMC memory cards. If you search back earlier posts you will see where I went in-depth many times about this same topic. Search away for more info (smile).
Hi o.j. and fellow 6230 users, the security module i was talkin about can be found when u go to menu>service>settings>security settings> certificates. I know use my phone to browse this website and i use opera mini browser. Browsing on this phone is very fast and i like that but i prefer the opera browser to the phone's browser because with the opera, it compresses the kbs & gives a clearer view of how the pages look like. Also, i listen to music using my nokia bh 200 headset so i dont know the use of the AD2P profile. My phone was made in 4-2004.
i've been reading your reviews with 6230..honestly i think it's the best nokia phone ever! i have mine for 2.5 yrs now, and it still runs like brand new! i just have 2 question: first, what's the maximum MMC memory it can handle? (256, 512, or 1 gb?) i upgraded mine with 128 mb...with 53 music tracks in ti (AAC format). second, how can i improve the quality of my video recording? is there a software upgrade available? thanks in advance, regards, joenavs
yes! another thing...6230's got the best and the fastest responding keyboard/pad in planet GSM...i love this phone so much...i know it's going to be a classic. i hope nokia will release a special limited edition 6230 classic soon...i'm dying for one! but for the moment...i'm not trading my 2.5 year-old 6230 for anything, i might buy a new phone, but this old buddy's gonna stay with me forever! this is the best phone i've ever had (though not the most expensive)...congratulations! nokia... 6230 is king!
hey! i love this phone! for me it's one of the best phones nokia built...it's small, simple sleek design. it's like a BENZ in cars..simple,yet classy! it's way ahead of it's time...it's easy to use..and it responds quiet fast! (faster than most modern phones - even faster than N70, my wife has one)...i had this for 2.5 yrs now, and i'm not planning of replacing it! EVER!
please , i need to know what memory card use that phone and what is that maximun . 1gb ? or 512 mb?thank you
hey, this phone can supports 1gb or 512mb memmory cards????
help me please!!!!!!!!
You ask some tough questions.
First of all, NO, NO, NO all files received through bluetooth or Infrared, is automatically saved in the phone memory.
Secondly I very much doubt you will be able to find a 3rd party player capable of playing mp4s as the format wasn't hardwired in the phone. However, I should note that some MP4 files will work BUT it has to have H.263 tracing in it. For example you can use a program to encode a file in MP4 format but you would have to encode it using a codec called H.263 otherwise it WON'T work with the 6230.
Thirdly I don't know what 'Security Module' you are talking about. Where did you here about this ?
Hi o.j and all 6230 users, I've got some questions about this fon I'd like u to answer. Can i save received bluetooth items directly on to my memory card without using the fon's memory? If yes how? Also, is there any app that i can install on my fon to play mp4s. Finally, what is security module and how do i access it.
You did NOT read the accessories page carefully. The link I sent you was a direct link showing the accessories the 6230 supports. The VERY FIRST accessory on the page is a BLUETOOTH WIRELESS HEADSET. In fact, almost all the accessories on that page is a bluetooth headset. Check again.
Thanx OJ for ur reply!!! i checked the compatibilty list and it seems that it doesnt support wireless bluetooth headsets!! but it i guess it has a facility to insert an audio adapter with the help of which one can connect any 3.5mm headset into the 6230:) !!
1. To connect to external speakers you would need an adapter. Check Nokia's site for the necessary adapter at: http://europe.nokia.com/all_accessories?phoneid=746
That Nokia website link is a direct link for 6230 accessories
2. I should think the 6230 supports stereo bluetooth wireless headsets BUT you CAN'T play music through a bluetooth headset due to the lack of a bluetooth profile called A2DP...which is acceptable for this phone seeing that it was released over 3 years now. Once again, check Nokia 6230 accessories page for compatible bluetooth headsets.
hey buddies i have two queries abt this phone!!! 1. how can i connect my 6230 to my audio player such that it would able to play songs frm the audio system speakers??? 2.Does this phone support stereo wireless bluetooth headsets??? Thanx in advance!!!
The NOKIA 6230 CAN REWIND and FAST FORWARD music. While in the player, press and hold up to rewind and press - hold down to fast forward. It took me a while to find out and I didn't see any mention of it in the manual.
Why nokia 6230 can't fast forward or rewind music? anyway this phone is the best because my phone is almost 2 years old. I love Nokia
i love this phone! i had this for 3 years and i dropped it so many times on concrete and water and it still works fine. i love the mp3 player even though it kinda sucks on the sound but its pretty good. the only bad thing is its too fat and the camera is not the best and i need to upgrade. does anyone know any other nokia, sony ericsson, or samsung phone thats like this phone but better looking and slimmer?
