Yes, the Date and Time all Stay Intact.
Well My 6233 Does Not support Forward and Rewind Video. But i Heard 6300 Does Becuase it Has Macromedia Flash Lite 2.0 which allow's it.and 6300 has a Built in Video Player like Sony Ericsson's so the Video's can be forward and rewinded.
Yes, the Equaliser in 6300 the LoudSpeaker the Difference Can be Noticed.same through the Headset the difference can be noticed when equalised.
Hmm...Now This is a different Story When i Open the Memory card (microSD)1GB in My 6233 its Fast but Somehow it Feel's Lagging Something .But 6300 has a Newer Tweaked Interface compared to 6300 so it Should be Faster !?!?.
Yes, the microSD is Way Quicker then the MMC when Transfering and recieving File's and it Does'nt Really Matter even if you have a 2GB in 6300 it WONT Slow Down. My 6233 Feeel's the Same Even When i have My 1GB in. I Think This is Becuase of the 3RD EDITION interface.
To 768 & JUDE:
With the 6300, does the date and time stay intact when you remove the battery ?
Also, does the video player support Fast Forward and Rewind ?
How about the 7 band equalizer, aftering fine tuning it, do you hear a difference when playing music through the loudspeaker ?...with the 6230 you would have to listen to the music through the headset before noticing a difference.
When going through the menus and opening files etc. is the speed faster than 6230 ?
How about memory card speed, do you find the transflash (MircoSD) to be faster than MMC Plus, also, is there a big difference between phone speed and memory card speed ?

I'm glad to hear that 6300 supports bluetooth printing. Have you actually tried the feature on a bluetooth printer ?
Other than infrared, what does 6230 have over the 6300 ?
Yes ,6300 Does Support Bluetooth Printing and 6300 Does also Support PicBridge application
well i have played with a 6300 to it look's Sexy and Nice i Love the miniUSB Port but after i played with 6300 i played with a 6230 and i have to say 6230 has something which 6300 Does not have But Overall 6300 is a Nice New Phone
To 786 & JUDE:
DO you know if the 6300 supports bluetooth wireless printing. I know it supports PictBridge but bluetooth printing would be even cooler, no need for cables.
I read it faster than you think (smile). I used the 6300 once, just for about 5 mins. It does feel great in the hand. It has a real solid feel. I do agree that it has some impressive modern features like being able to support almost all audio and video formats etc. It may be the best upgrade from a 6230 BUT the 6230 still has a little edge over it due to infrared, other than that the 6300 excels over the 6230. I love my 6230 and really don't want to change but the time is dawning for me to change it. The 6230 is the longest phone I ever had going 2 years come July 17th...whereas previously I would change my phones within a few months or 1 year maximum!
The 6230 won't last on this earth forever BUT it will always be remembered as the king of all cellular phones.

hmmm, well 6300 is a Better Upgrade if you are changing from 6230 so best of luck!!
well as you should Know Nokia have Made the Series 40 3rd Edition Platform so the whole INTERFACE has been Overhauled so the Battery and Reception indicator's
But as you Know i have a 6233 with that 3rd Edition interface and Once you get Used to it the Indicator's for Reception,Battery feel Better were they are Placed. im Used to it and i acchewly Think its a Better Place for the Battery indicator's
the Nokia 6230i was the Last Phone with the Reception and Battery indicator's on the sides in the Tradional Nokia Style .they needed to Change it Because Sony Ericsson's Moto's Samsung's are in the Same Place !!
Trust me You will Start Liking the Platform Reception and Battery indicator's in the New 3rd edition Platform !!
786 my friend, where in the world are you located ?
I'm seriously considering the Nokia 6300 and thank you for reminding me of that phone.
I don't think I will give up my 6230 though.
786, the only think I would have liked is if Nokia had stuck to their traditional reception and battery meters, with the strokes from top to bottom.
I don't really like the battery diagram which is mostly found on Sony Ericsson, Samsungs and Motorolas. I noticed that all new Nokia phones have this new battery and reception indicators, part of the series 40 version 3 interface.
786, do you have any idea why Nokia couldn't stick to the original indicators ? I have been searching all over the internet without finding an answer.
YO YO YO - OJ
i think they already made a 6230 clone - that's 6233 and even that cant top 6230 in terms of speed and robostness
BTW im still hunting for a 6230 cant find any i have kind off reserved one !!
Is there anything else anybody would like to add to the Nokia 6230 Classic phone ?
Just to add a few more things to the laundry wishful specs. of a 6230 classic:
According to Wikipedia, the Nokia 6100 was said to be the lightest Nokia phone weighing 76 grams.
It would be nice if Nokia could somehow miraculously shave down the size of my dreamful 6230 classic. Maybe getting it to 70 grams or 75 maximum. That way it would be the most feature-rich and lightest Nokia phone ever!
Also, it would be nice if the Wi-Fi implementation covered verbal communication in addition to data communication. So far the average phone with Wi-Fi only covers data commmunication.
Maybe I'm going overboard but maybe the call records could show up to the last 100 dialled, received and missed calls.
Also, it would be nice if it could be Quad Band making it a stronger international coverage phone.
Finally, something yet to be achieved in any cellular phone...voice recognition (not to be mistaken by voice command). That would be so useful for CONTACT ENTRIES, SMS, EMS, MMS, Internet address entries (HTML & WAP), NOTES and Calendar entries. If voice recognition were available for those 7 areas I mentioned then that would be so helpful...physically challenged people, especially the ones who aren't able to use their hands effectively, would benefit greatly from a feature like this.
Yes people that would be my dream Nokia 6230 classic. In fact, it could be called Nokia 6230 Classic Platinum or Nokia 6230 Classic Diamond.
Nokia if you are listening do you have the magic to pull off my dream phone ? The price tag may 1 year's worth of salary but I don't care, just create it (smile).
Since Nokia is in the classic mood this year (3110 classic / 3109 classic / 6120 classic) maybe they could create a 6230 classic...even though it may sound a bit ironic seeing that the 6230 was meant to be a classic phone. Nevertheless they could add the term 'classic'
to differentiate it from the original.
FIRST and FOREMOST the same exact keypad is a must!!! The 6230's keypad is simply the grestest I have ever come across...GSMArena themselves praise it mightly.
Secondly, seeing that most recent series 40 phone has a 2MP camera (7390 is the only s40 phone with a 3MP) they could probably up the ante by giving the 6230 classic a 4MP or even 5MP (with 5MP, no need for N95).
The display could be VGA instead of QVGA with 24-bit colour...basic computer resolution right there. Internal memory could be 1GB - 2GB along with a memory card slot supporting up to 8GB memory cards (Motorola RaZr2 V8 offers 2GB with no memory card) . Phonebook could accomodate up to 3,000 contacts. 500 text messages, IrDa, Bluetooth, 3G with front camera, Wi-Fi (WLAN). SVGA video recording with the available memory being the only limit. MiniUSB port, Full built in HTML browser (like Symbian phones). The ability to read document files like Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Acess & PDF. 3.5mm audio output jack so that any earphones could be used. TV-Out support. The ability to copy and move files to and from phone memory as well as memory card. A battery with similar standby and talk time as the 6310i (7 hours maximum talk time) or even more if possible.
Now that is what I would call a top of the line classic multimedia phone. Who out there agrees and would like to see a 6230 classic with these features ? Hands up (smile).
